Recent Fort Bragg vacation rental reviews

At first glance this home was just gorgeous! The light and open feel with plenty of privacy were just right. The easy walk to the beach was wonderful as well. We enjoyed every minute we were there and wish our stay was two weeks instead of two nights. My only complaint is that check out is at 10am which is hard for a family to accomplish after making breakfast and trying to pack and start dishwasher and laundry. I was very disappointed that at 9:58am the housekeeper pulled up and waited outside for us to finish getting out and into our cars. An 11am checkout is much more realistic and having the housekeeper wait 30 minutes after checkout is much less aggressive. Otherwise it was a wonderful stay!

The name says it all ❣️Beautiful Sunsets 🌅.. We loved the house so relaxing, beds were very comfortable. Enjoyed watching the jack rabbits and squirrels and the vultures warming in the mornings. We didn’t see any deer but we did see a couple whales and a sea harbor seal that hung out one morning.. the house could use some more drinking glasses… perfect didn’t want to leave THANK YOU

Where is Fort Bragg, CA? 

Occasionally confused with the military base of the same name in North Carolina, California's Fort Bragg is a military town only in the historic sense. Established as an outpost in 1857, Fort Bragg was abandoned by the military within a decade. Since its establishment, this eclectic area has flourished into the largest town along the scenic Northern California coast. Today - thanks to its ideal location and growing popularity - Fort Bragg's primary order of business is tourism. This bustling city is home to 7,000 year-round residents and boasts the highest concentration of shops and restaurants in the area. 

Located just 10 miles north of the beautiful oceanfront city of Mendocino, our Fort Bragg rentals offer a taste of all that Northern California has to offer! Framed by the Pacific Ocean on the west and the wilderness of the Jackson State Forest to the east, you'll find an abundance of serene beaches and challenging hiking trails just a short drive from your front door. 

Things to do in downtown Fort Bragg

A unique city known (and loved) for its oddities, you'll find a surprising number of ways to fill your days during your stay in one of our Fort Bragg vacation rentals! Downtown Fort Bragg is home to everything from a tattoo museum to the North Coast Brewing Company to a specialty sock store. Grab a latte at Headlands Coffee and spend your morning browsing through the unique shops, museums, and galleries. Wandering and shopping will help you to work up an appetite, but there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to keep you well-fed. 

Glass Beach

One of the most notable attractions of the area is Glass Beach, located north of Fort Bragg in MacKerricher State Park. This beach is aptly named for its abundance of sea glass, the result of years of discarding garbage into a specific area of coastline. Conservation teams have led clean-up efforts to remove metal and other hazards from the area, but the pounding waves have transformed the remaining pottery and glass into thousands of pieces of beautiful sea glass that now blanket the beach. 

The Skunk Train

For an unforgettable experience found only in Fort Bragg, hop aboard the historic California Western Railroad, more popularly known as the Skunk Train! Named after the pungent smell of the original gas engines, the Skunk Train offers a historic experience guaranteed to delight guests of all ages. Forty miles of railroad run through majestic redwood forest and along the pristine Noyo River so you can admire the scenery in comfort. Make sure to bring your camera so you can share your historic adventure with your friends and family back home!

If you tire of taking photos of the foliage, head 25 miles south to the small town of Elk where rugged cliffs and sweeping views make this shoreline a photographer's dream! 

Fishermen and kayakers will easily find the perfect place to drop a line or launch a boat, thanks to the two creeks that flank downtown and the numerous sea caves and quiet bays lining the coast. Just north of Fort Bragg, you'll find the MacKerricher State Park. With miles of trails suitable for hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders, it's worth a visit!
