Breathe in, release your worries, and embrace tranquility at Serenity Grove. This two-storey, 4- bed, 2-bath vacation rental is perfect for families looking to get away from it all while still enjoying the comforts of civilization – including an office and strong enough wifi for a working vacation and central heating to warm you when the coastal evenings set in. Situated on a forested acre in a quiet and private neighborhood cul-de-sac, this property boasts neat groves of towering redwoods and lush rhododendrons framing green lawns, and astronomy buffs and romantics will love the great views of the sky on clear nights, while taking in the sounds of ocean waves.
This house has an Level 2 EV charger for charging your vehicles as needed..
Originally built in 1877 as a logger’s cabin, the house was renovated several times, with two additions between the 1970s and the present, so you can experience a touch of history while making use of the thoroughly modern amenities. Today, the house features a variety of carefully crafted flourishes, along with everything you need to feel at home, including a well-equipped open kitchen, counter seating, a cozy breakfast nook, a dining room with a 6-top dining table, a washer and dryer, and a spacious living room with lots of entertainment options and an “introvert’s corner.” Clerestory windows and skylights ensure ample natural light, which accentuates the elegant redwood construction. Serenity Grove also has a brand new Pack n Play availeble for babies if ever needed and is easy to access. The living room is always warm and cozy with an electric fire place to add additional warmth and comfort when needded.
The famed Noyo Harbor and its award-winning seafood restaurants and markets are a short drive away (6 minutes), but you also have options at home, and local’s grocer Harvest Market is just down the road (4 minutes), making specialty food supply runs simple.
The kitchen has a 4-top gas stove with a griddle, a microwave, a toaster oven, a dishwasher for easy cleanup, and a fridge and freezer for any leftovers. For movie night, you have a popcorn maker, and for a boost to start your mornings, a juicer and a coffee maker.
On warm days and evenings, you can dine al fresco at the outdoor table that seats 8. The BBQ-inclined will appreciate the grill, while children and adults alike will love roasting marshmallows over the gas fire pit while telling your best campfire stories.
The home comes with a big-screen Smart TV, books, and games, but with such an abundance of natural beauty and peaceful nature nearby, you may be busy listening to birdsong, taking in the fresh coastal air, exploring hidden gems and local haunts and catching the occasional glimpse of wildlife.
If you fancy an adventurous day, you can pack a lunch and head to one of the many hiking trails minutes away. You also have your choice of white sand beaches, from Big River in Mendocino to Pudding Creek in Fort Bragg. For the best of both worlds, head to Jug Handle, where you can hike up to the unique pygmy forest (moderate) or down to the beach (easy). Kayaking, canoeing, and bicycling offer other ways to explore the breathtaking Mendocino Coast. Most certainly worth a visit is the vast picturesque Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens (5 minutes).
But if you prefer to stay close to home, Serenity Grove will give you plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. From your deck, you can hear the waves and the foghorn, and the woods surrounding the house will refresh and calm you while sparking the imagination. Share the yard games of your youth with the next generation or engage in a little friendly competition with cornhole and croquet tournaments.
When it comes time to call it a night, the comfortable and cozy bedrooms ensure that everyone will get a good night’s sleep. The main bedroom has a king-sized bed, a vanity, and a marvelous view, with French doors that open onto the yard. The second bedroom has a queen- sized bed with a settee, a desk, and a walk-in closet.
The two upstairs bedrooms are perfect for the younger members of your crew. One has bunk beds with a trundle bed, so up to 3 BFFs will love sharing the space. The chalkboard wall enable aspiring artists to embrace creativity when it strikes. The other upstairs bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a spectacular view of the redwood trees, along with a walk-in closet and a reading nook. You can always catch a nap on the pullout couch in the office or do some forest bathing while lounging on the patio couch or egg chair.
Whether you’re traveling with family or friends or looking for a beautiful and peaceful place to work remotely, this sanctuary and its soothing luxury will help you rest and recharge as you enjoy the wonders of the Mendocino Coast with all the comforts of home. Book your escape today – serenity awaits you.
