Escape to this beautiful home & cottage and enjoy the best of two worlds - both Mendocino Village and Mendocino Headlands State Park are literally at your doorstep! Take a five-minute walk to a picturesque nearby beach, stunning cliff-side bluffs, or along the expansive state park just across the street. Or if you prefer, stroll five minutes in the other direction to quaint cafés, bakeries, boutiques, restaurants, and galleries.
The home, an historical landmark built in 1881, has just the right blend of style, luxury, and rustic character. Combined with the cottage it is the perfect destination for that much-needed multi-generation family vacation or a large, heartwarming reunion of friends.
Headlands View Home & Cottage boasts plenty of spaces to gather together and also enjoy a bit of privacy and quiet reflection over the course of your stay – you choose! There is a large living area with both a wood-burning fireplace and zoned central heating, not to mention gorgeous views! In a second living area, you’ll discover a gas fireplace, small desk, and more gorgeous views. Step outdoors and enjoy multiple decks with chairs and benches. Some guests could easily watch TV or play games in one living area while others read, listen to music, or reminisce in the other living area. Or retreat to the Cottage and let the downstairs gas fireplace keep you warm while you snuggle up in the two luxurious recliner chairs or the sofa to read, watch TV, or simply take in the view in silence. The upstairs Cottage bedroom has a built-in desk and two rocking chairs that look out over Mendocino Headlands State Park providing additional spaces to read, talk, doze, or quietly reflect.
The fully stocked kitchen has everything you will need to cook up many satisfying meals. 14 people can eat together using the kitchen table with leaf extensions and adjoining bar. If you prefer cooking outdoors, just head to the back deck and turn on the gas grill.

Head upstairs to find two open lofts, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. The Cottage has a queen sofa sleeper downstairs, complete with a comfy memory foam mattress.
