Fairy Ring Cottage 10940 Gurley Lane, Mendocino, CA 95460

This cozy, three-bedroom Mendocino vacation rental is filled with country-style charm, from its rustic exposed-wood interior with wood stove, to its nicely updated kitchen. And with a great location about a mile east of Mendocino Headlands State Park and the surrounding downtown area, you can drive quickly shops, restaurants, galleries, or even the beach.

Inside the living room you'll be all set to enjoy a relaxing night in. Pick a spot on one of the plush sofas, settle back against a floral pillow, and throw a log in the wood stove - or if you prefer, take the window seat and stay warm and cozy beside the fire. There's a flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player for entertainment options, as well as WiFi so you can stay connected.

The full kitchen is centrally located right near the dining room and living rooms, so you can socialize or carry on conversations while sitting in front of the fire or while getting dinner ready. There's an island cooktop, refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher at this charming Fairy Ring Cottage. And when it's time to eat, gather everyone around the wooden table on the edge of the kitchen. On sunny summer evenings, eat dinner out on the deck and admire the tree-lined view. There's even an outdoor grill if you have a craving for some barbecued chicken thighs.

This Mendocino vacation getaway boasts design touches like stained glass windows, wood paneling, and skylights for a cabin-in-the-redwoods aesthetic. On the lower level, there are two of the home's three bedrooms. One has a double bed, and the other two twins - both will make guests feel right at home.

Upstairs, the master suite takes up the whole loft area. The lucky occupant of this relaxing space will have a queen bed, a private bathroom complete with an elegant copper shower, and a private deck. This Northern California beach cottage will sleep up to three guests quite comfortably. And don't forget your furry family members! Dogs are welcome here with small nightly fee.

Additional amenities include a stereo, board games, and a washer and dryer. But perhaps one of the best advantage of a stay here, is the great location just over a mile east of the charming village center of Mendocino. Have a red tail ale and some snacks at Patterson's Pub or looking for some new reading material at the Mendocino Book Company. Even more shops, galleries, gardens, and restaurants dot the streets of this picturesque community, so you'll definitely be able to find something to do here in town.

Don't feel like shopping? The rocky, rugged coastline surrounds downtown Mendocino on three sides. Take the steps down to the beach and watch the waves roll in or stay up on the bluff and hike along the headlands. Whichever you choose, be sure to bring your camera!

Easy day trips include the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse and bustling Fort Bragg to the north and Van Damme State Park and the small town of Little River to the south. And don't forget, Mendocino County is home to a number of wineries and an epicenter of California's organic "green" wine production. So, head inland and make a day of it, stopping at wineries and vineyards to sample the region's best offerings.

Mendocino is an ideal location for an unforgettable Northern California Coast vacation rental! Unwind at this cute as a button Fairy Ring Cottage right near the ocean and the redwoods for a getaway your whole group will never forget!

    We are a group of abalone divers and the Fairy Ring Cottage was the perfect spot for us! You can see the thought and detail that went into building this house. The living area was great for socializing and enjoying meals as a large group. The cottage is pet friendly with plenty of property for the fur kids to sniff around and explore. Would recommend adding a few kitchen gadgets to the mix. There was only one frying pan, no cookie sheet, no cutting board, and the stove top was difficult to figure out with no markings on the dials. The upstairs deck was soft in spots to where it felt unsafe to be out on. The driveway is very narrow so it's difficult with large vehicles. I would definitely stay here again knowing what to bring for food preparation.

    We stayed 5 nights with our 11-year-old daughter, 2 year old, and dog. Absolutely perfect location. We walked to downtown every day (about a mile along a road with no sidewalk is downside but has a tight bike lane), kids played in the secluded woods (beware of poison oak/ ivy everywhere throughout woods). Beautiful, tall redwoods keep this cabin so private. Basic amenities, spacious enough for us, perfect for the pup, and absolutely beautiful views from every window. I would bring baby gates if you have young kids. The stairs are abnormally steep from the loft to the living room.

    This place was the perfect getaway for our family!

    The location is nice especially if you like the quiet. It is only a few minutes to Mendocino. The house is surrounded by trees and you can barely see that there are other houses around. The house needs a little updating--dingy carpet, doors that need their hinges fixed. It feels a little old. But everything important worked. We didn't use the TV. Not a lot to cook with, but enough for simple meals. Good for a quiet getaway.

    We loved this secluded home hidden in the redwoods and will definitely recommend to our friends. We picked this house because it is pet friendly. It rained during most of our stay so we spent most of our time in Mendocino visiting the local shops and spending time at the beach of course. Loved Harvest Market which had everything we needed. Look forward to returning this summer.

    Our dog and we enjoyed a lovely stay in the beautiful woods just outside of Mendocino. The house was very well-designed and quite comfortable with all of the amenities of home. If it hadn't been raining most of the time we would've been able to ride our bicycles to town or walk. But we didn't let the rain stop us from enjoying our time there. We would highly recommend this fairyland place to anyone who loves nature. Very romantic setting as well, and wonderful that they're so dog friendly! We plan to stay there again when we visit Mendocino at some point in the future.

    Bringing senior parents with me meant I needed very accurate information about the property, particularly in terms of safety for my parents. The cottage was exactly as described and the video of the inside was incredibly helpful. We arrived to a very clean, well cared for home with all of the basics we needed. The customer service through Vacasa was excellent. I was easily able to call a local person who answers the phone and is immediately helpful!I appreciated that when I was looking at the house online a representative called us to ask if we had any questions she could help us with. Very personal service! We will definitely use Vacasa in the future and will stay at the Fairy Ring house when we return to Mendocino.

    Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teens) enjoyed 2 nights in this wonderful hideaway home in the woods. The living room is very comfortable and spacious with lots of natural light, despite being surrounded by woodland. It catered well for all of our requirements, with comfortable bedrooms and an amazing copper bath/shower in the master loft area. It was lovely sitting out on the decks in the morning for breakfast, listening to the woodland noises.
    Mendocino is a short drive away and is a picturesque small town. Glass Beach at Fort Bragg is worth a visit too. We also enjoyed just being at the property and the peace it provided. Would happily stay again.

    This house is beautiful. We loves the privacy, and would rent again. It is close to town, but far enough to feel secluded, yet hear the ocean. We will be back, and hope the water for the copper tub is hot enough to fill it. That was the only downer. Not enough hot water for the amazing tub.

    The name Fairy Ring fits the cottage perfectly as it is spacious home with a small cozy feel. When we arrived we explored the grounds that were filled with tall redwoods and ferns. Very lush and beautiful. There was even a little cave-like space between some tall trees that someone had begun to make a little roof out of branches and leaves. The living room and kitchen are all open space and it was perfect for us with 2 kids. We slept upstairs while the kids slept in the room downstairs and it was very peaceful and quiet. We made a fire on 2 of the nights and the whole place was comfortably toasty. We will definitely come back again!

    Loved the surroundings and being surrounded by the redwoods. The house is quaint, cozy and comfortable. As mentioned in other reviews, if you're staying in the loft, you can hear everything downstairs and there's little privacy. Customer communication needs improvement. Email providing details was informative but the contact phone number was disconnected. Trying to reach someone in person on the phone number on the website took several tries. When I finally spoke to someone and requested information, I was told I would receive a phone call back but no phone call/email was received. Other areas of improvement that was mentioned in other reviews but still yet to be addressed:

    - Can't see the dials on stove, should be replaced
    - there wasn't a full set of wine glasses
    - outdoor patio set upstairs would be nice to be able enjoy the deck
    - outdoor table downstairs
    - towels downstairs bathroom were very old
    - The kitchen utensils & cookware needs updating. Maybe add more serving bowls/platters
    - Knives needs sharpening & they could use another chopping board

    Regardless of the above, I still had a great stay, would return and also recommend the place.

    This was our second time using Vacasa for booking a rental in this area. While our location the first time had a slight ocean view, this property was deep in the redwoods. The windy driveway takes you back off the street and once at the house you don't see or hear anyone else. The house is older - be prepared for a musty smell. The vaulted wood beam ceiling with skylights are perfect for the location in the trees. The living area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and dining area are on the first floor, with a loft area consisting of a bedroom/bathroom studio is upstairs. There is a great deck off the loft area where I enjoyed my coffee every morning before the kids woke up. It is so quiet that you can hear the waves crashing. There is a huge copper tub/shower in the loft bathroom that my two young boys loved "swimming" in. There really is no privacy in the loft area as you can see/hear everything that happens in the rest of the home. The appliances in the kitchen were updated except for the range top, which smelled like it was burning and made some popping sounds every time you turned it on. Not too many items available if you were looking to bake something, and some new utensils/cookware would be a great addition. Beds weren't super comfy, so we were all looking forward to a good night's sleep when we got home. The washer/dryer is in a closet in the kitchen. It is VERY loud, even with the doors closed, so plan your laundry accordingly if you use them. I enjoyed using the BBQ pit a couple nights we were there, but the bottom vent was missing its cover so it was hard to get your food cooked before the coals burnt out. Loved the window seating area and the views from the house all around. There is a nice fireplace in the living room we tried using - the wood from outside was just too wet and refused to burn, so central heat it was! I liked that the kids could run around the house outside and explore. Overall, the house is very cozy and we would definitely stay here again. The location of the house is perfect to run into Mendocino for shopping or to the beach. I would highly recommend Big River beach for the kids! We also made trips south to Point Arena Lighthouse and north up to MacKerricher State Park, which were all quite quick and worth the drive.

    We would like to come back to this property. We enjoyed the comfy home and time in the redwoods even with the rain. HOWEVER, we would have liked to have a starter supply of firewood. After a four hour drive we had to go back out to the store to purchase wood for the long weekend. Tried to call the property manager number provided but since there is no cell service and the in house phone is local calls only, we couldn't call out to the (503) number provided. The kitchen pots and pans as well as cooking utensils are meager. We ate out all nights and it is a good thing we did not plan to cook because equipment was lacking.The bed linens, place mats and towels were old and worn. Overall a nice cozy place things just need to be update a bit.

    We stayed here for four nights over New Year's. We found the cottage to be attractive, well located for our interests, comfortable and clean. We did not plan to do a lot of cooking now while here-- if we had. I would have needed additional kitchen items, e.g. Better knives, more mixing accessories, baking pans. The heating system worked well and the Woodstock was very efficient. We loved the location -- nestled in the redwoods-- it was so quiet we could hear the sea. Because it was cold and rainy during our stay we didn't make much use of the two decks, but these would be great in warmer weather.

    The house has nice touches-- stained glass, and a very unusual and enormous copper tub in the loft. A lot of redwood built-ins in the bathrooms.

    Some aspects of the house could be updated-- the fixtures in the showers are old, and the cooktop range is on its last legs. I also think the house could be improved with a king-sized
    Bed in the loft.

    Exactly as pictured - you felt as though you were in a Fairy Forest. Very wooded and extremely quiet get away. House was well laid out and the open floorplan really added to the goal of friends gathering together.

    Unfortunately - there was no TV (which was one of our criterion for football day) and some of the burners on the stove didn't really work. It would have been nice to have a little more firewood as we were there for 5 days and needed to buy more.

    Otherwise this is a charming location and loved the little stained glass windows and the overall setting.

    Come here expecting a rough cabin or a tiny cottage and you will be pleasantly surprised; it is spacious, open, well lit and full of fine examples of the "woodbutcher" school of interior carpenters' artistry found in redwood country . Come here expecting sidewalks, hot tubs, walking to neighboring businesses and you will be disappointed; it is quiet, dark and away from the highways and crowds. Come here and see a deer looking at you as you bathe through the picture window looking into the thick redwood forest? Don't be surprised. Conveniently close to drive or take along walk to town, yet far enough away to make it seem you are in the heart of the forest primeval. Wide decks with close-up forest views make the house seem bigger yet, as does the towering front room ceiling and overlooking loft (with bed, vanity and deep copper soaking tub). WIFI keeps you in touch, and the cable television with VHS/DVD player is available if you so choose. Cell phone...not so good, but drive a half mile and you will find it works fine. The woodstove will be laid and awaiting your match on chilly mornings.

    If you are okay with a mile walk into town, this is a great little cottage. Very private, well appointed (don't expect high end cooking equipment, but most everything you need is there) and cozy. Bring a flashlight to get in if you arrive after dark (it helps). Most things are self-explanatory, all appliances work and pretty easy to start a fire in the wood stove. Parking in Mendo is usually pretty easy if you are not into walking. Best value is Trillium for farm to fork. Best beers and clam chowder Patterson's (no cash). The Mendocino Film Festival in late May is a good time to be there.

    We recently stayed at the Fairy Ring Cottage in Mendocino, 2 adults and 2 small children. The cottage is tucked back among towering trees and has many skylights to let a little extra light into the living areas. The outside deck is perfect for observing nature and keeping an eye on curious kids. The fairy ring itself was a source of much wonder to the little ones. Being just off the road, access to downtown activities such as shopping and dining makes it very convenient, too. Vacasa was very responsive when making reservations (which were only a week ahead of time) and stayed in touch with information about the cottage (welcome guide) and easy directions for finding it and getting in the door. My grandson wants to buy it!

    Beautiful cabin although the trees in the year are all furs not redwoods but all in all perfect spot to get away with the kids... Wine glasses and coffee pot and washer dryer got it five stars in my book.

    I loved this rental because of the room it had if you have a family and it is within walking distance to Mendocino!

    The cottage was all it said it was, cozy, clean and well situated....although more than a 10 minute walk to the town.
    The only slightly negative comments are: 1. The heating in the first bedroom did not work. 2. One blind in the second bedroom did not retract. The beds in the first bedroom were very "spongy" and soft.
    Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recomend it

    Enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving week. The Fairy Ring Cottage was cozy and comfortable in good weather and in the rain, which made housing family for a special occasion much easier. We chose this house specifically because it was pet friendly. The location of the house is excellent and the skylights, stained glass, and open floor plan with large kitchen were other highlights. Also enjoyed the views of giant redwoods and the secluded feeling of the forest.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The house is extremely quiet and private, which is what we wanted. It is nestled in the redwood forest and the only neighbor we saw was a small buck.

    For anyone who wants an immaculate place, please stay in a hotel. This is an older home and we were thrilled to find a place so close to my aging mother where we could have the flexibility of eating at home or going out.

    Overall, we really enjoyed our retreat! We had four kids with us, and we loved the solitude and relaxation. The fireplace was perfect, and it was a bonus to have cable and WiFi. We hooked up our Apple TV and watched movies together. The BBQ was perfect, and we enjoyed home-cooked meals every day. The local sites are all very close, so we made a few trips into town and along the beaches between meals.

    If you plan on making your own meals (as we did), then I'd plan on bringing some extra pots and pans. There aren't a lot to choose from, and the ones that are there are not in good repair. Nonetheless, once we got settled in, we adjusted to the surroundings and made ourselves right at home.

    We loved this retreat, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was a great escape.

    The upstairs loft was SO AMAZING! It is where I would want to spend a honeymoon! The copper tub was such an added surprise! The open concept kitchen was perfect for meal times as well. Loved every part of it! Thank you so much!

    we really enjoyed our stay , close to great parks... hiking, swimming...
    grocery just down the road for convenience and what a cute little town.. we wish we had arrived earlier on friday for the farmers market (10-2pm)

    hanging out on both the lower and upper deck was great, listening to the birds...the wind.. and loving to stare at the beautiful redwoods...

    we also think we may have heard a fairy in the woods, or some kind of tiny bells anyway!

    i recommend this for a family of four it was perfect, but could have fit 2 more! :)
