Have you always wanted to visit an enchanted cottage by the sea? Annie’s Beach House is the perfect place to come live your magical countryside dreams, all while enjoying modern comforts and amenities – and a hidden upstairs bar in the barn that you’ll absolutely love.

With blackberries and butterflies, Victorian flourishes, jacuzzi tubs, Instagram-worthy backdrops, and fast wifi, this 6-bedroom, 7.5 bath property has everything you’ll need for a great vacation. It can accommodate up to 12 people with parking for 6 cars and is ideal for a family or friends reunion, couples trip, girlfriend getaway, writer’s retreat, etc. Built in 1883, the house has been renovated to pair its historic charm with everything you might need for a comfortable stay.

This wildflower wonderland is situated off of Highway 1 halfway between Mendocino and Fort Bragg, so you’re minutes away from anything you might need, but you’ll feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Breathe in the scent of fresh flowers and the ocean breeze. As you explore the acre of Shire-like land, lush with trees and flowers (including eucalyptus, Monterey pines, cypress, nasturtium, and calla lilies, to name just a few), your worries will fall away.

When you first arrive, the charming front yard with a young apple tree and a succulent garden in an antique bathtub will welcome you to the main house. The house, which was once a Victorian B&B called Annie’s Jughandle, has 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs and 1 downstairs), 4.5 baths, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a large living room/dining room, and upstairs and downstairs views of the ocean. There is also a mudroom with half-bath, washer, dryer, and laundry sink to ensure that you always have fresh and clean clothes after a trip to the beach.

Downstairs, the kitchen has a 5-top gas stove, oven, toaster, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, and dishwasher, as well as a double sink (please note that there is no garbage disposal). There’s also a table with seating for 6. Adjacent to the kitchen, you’ll find a salon with another 6-top table, sofa, gas fireplace, and the historic wooden “Annie’s Jughandle” sign for a cozy photo opp. There’s also a collection of games and a classic stereo system.

The downstairs bedroom has a sloped roof leading to French doors overlooking a hidden garden view, with calla lilies spilling toward the side of the barn. You’ll enjoy a TV, as well as a bathroom with a deep jacuzzi tub and a shower. The bed has a top-quality queen-sized mattress.

Upstairs, three bedrooms sleep up to six people.

The first bedroom has a queen bed and ocean views, overlooking Highway 1 and the Pacific. With a large jacuzzi tub in the room, you can soak in the views as you soak in the tub. The vaulted ceiling and vintage wallpaper will evoke the English countryside, and a rocking chair, dresser, and Victorian bedside shelves complete the look. The bathroom has a shower and pedestal sink.

The second bedroom has a full bed, lighter wood, sloped ceiling, and a bright and airy style that lends itself to our more creative guests. Famous writers have come here to draft their work. With a view of the tree tops and the barn roof, this room feels more secluded. The bathroom has a shower and pedestal sink.

The third bedroom has a queen bed, a balcony, and a stunning view of the ocean. You can hear sounds of frogs, birds and the waves (along with the gentle rumble of the highway during busier times of day). This room has a TV as well as traditional Victorian elements with structural and stylistic flourishes. A vintage armchair in the corner is a great spot for catching up on your reading.

The rustic exterior of the barn is a fantastic backdrop for your photos, with large barn doors and a large 2nd-floor arched window. Once you step inside, wood beams and wainscotting throughout add to the aesthetic, light and airy while evoking a Swiss chalet or inviting country cottage.

Downstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms and two bathrooms, both equipped with private entrances, gas fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs, and showers. The first bedroom, affectionately termed “The Lighthouse Room,” has a queen bed and looks out on the forest. The second bedroom 'Seaside Room" has a full and twin bunk bed, a sofa, along with a counter area and fridge – it’s a great hideout for teens or for those who might need to take a few work meetings on vacation.

Upstairs, “Wow!” is the only word that begins to do Carroll’s Bar justice. At first, you’ll likely notice the bar itself, designed by an artist and situated in front of a beautiful arched window. It has a fully functional wet bar and a turntable. There’s also a jacuzzi tub for those who like bubbles with their brews. The longer you spend here, the more details you’ll notice about this spectacular speakeasy, from the opaque stained glass on the bathroom door to the art deco lamp to the attached deck with ocean and forest views. The skylights and the steep A-Frame roof with exposed wood beams keep things both woodsy and light. Plenty of comfortable couches, chairs, and barstools make this a great place to relax and catch up – or catch up on shows, since there’s also a TV.

At the main house, you are able to see the mighty Pacific Ocean, whether from the wraparound porch with Adirondack and rocking chairs or from the upstairs bedrooms. (On days with good weather, be sure to watch the sun set over the ocean. And at night, look up to the sky – the stars seem brighter here.)

Annie’s Beach House is just a five-minute walk to the bluffs or a 60-second drive to Jug Handle State Natural Reserve. The unique microclimate means you’ll get more sun than your neighbors, although if moody weather and fog is your thing, there’s plenty of that on the coast. You’ll have your choice of fantastic beaches and hiking (including a remarkable Pygmy Forest) nearby. Less than 10 minutes in either direction will get you to Fort Bragg or Mendocino, where you can partake in art galleries, shopping, and award-winning cuisine, as well as whale-watching, kayaking, and other activities. But with all that the property has to offer, you don’t have to venture far to make memories to last a lifetime.

With its misty, dreamy forest and meadow surroundings and enough creature comforts to make even the least adventurous hobbit happy, Annie’s Beach House is straight out of a storybook. Come visit – your fairytale vacation awaits!

We just loved our stay! Close to the beach and walking trails. Groceries nearby. Lots of space and bathrooms everywhere. The kids loved the Mojo Dojo Casa House out back. Definitely a win!

This is an amazing place - really two places - the house with 4 bedrooms, 4-1/2 bathrooms, and the barn with 2 bedrooms, 3 baths - at least 3 of the rooms have jacuzzis, and several have gas fireplaces. Plus the entire upstairs of the barn is a decorated, amazing pub (and just happens to have a jacuzzi)! This place is really stellar! And it was the perfect fit for our extended family and our after-wedding gathering and dinner. We had an issue and the host was really responsive and communicative and made it right for us. Highly recommended!

This was absolutely perfect for our family get together. Big enough for everyone to have their own space and spaces for us all to congregate. Excellent location and beautiful view! Would go here again!

Wonderful place, ideally located near Fort Bragg and the town of Mendocino. Jug handle beach and Russian Gulch State Park are within a few minutes drive. Lots of hikes and serene beaches within driving distance. Great food in the vicinity and in towns like Booneville. Fully equipped kitchen. Lots of space to spread out in the main house and the barn. The house was very thoughtfully prepared, and we enjoyed our stay very much. Glad we stayed here!

I am nervous to give such a good review in fear that it will always be booked!!! We have had dozens of vacation rentals over the years and this has been our absolute favorite!!! The barn is an incredible hang out spot for our teens, younger kids and the adults. Theres about 6 places to have good hang out times all over the property. Theres a hose by the entrance to help with sand, and a bathroom with every bedroom!!! The jacuzzis were amazing and I have to say this has been the only vacation rental where nobody had any complaints. We had 11 people ranging from 8 years old to 66 years old. Everyone enjoyed the ocean views every morning and evening. The jacuzzis were such a special test after the cold ocean waves. This by far has been the most special vacation our family has had. We have stayed at plenty of rentals over the yearswell over 40 and this place shines the brightest. The location is the best, the property is so warm and inviting and decorated with the coolest ocean art.

I live in Mendocino and rented the house for my children and grandchildren for a weeks visit....they loved it. They thought it was conveniently located between Mendocino and Fort Bragg, cozy, immaculate, a wonderful kitchen to work in...roomy with lots of everything, comfy beds AND a bathroom in every bedroom!! We'll come back. Thank you!

This gem of a house is too good to be true! Each bedroom with its own bathroom, your own personal pub upstairs, cottage-like feel, beautiful sunsets, and located right in the middle between Mendocino and Fort Bragg towns. There are many hiking trails nearby and we could even walk across the street to see the waves crash against the cliffs. This place is perfect! The hosts were thoughtful and provided us with all the information we needed before arriving. The kitchen cabinets were fully stocked with cups, bowls, and pots and pans, which made it easy to cook family dinners, and it also has a large window looking out to the ocean. There are plenty of comfortable beds and space to relax and even has adorable chairs on the deck to snuggle up in a blanket in and watch the sunset. The barn and cute blue house were also the perfect background for photos too. This house was the best choice for our family to stay in during our long vacation! Will be back!"

Watching a sunset over the Pacific from a kitchen panoramic window while sipping wine with glimpses of fire from burning logs in a stove - that is the one of moments of happiness this house slips quietly into a restless mind. I spent two wonderful days in this house in a company of my good friends and will remember these days for a long time. We simply walk out of the house catching a hiking trail, which led us through beautiful forest to a remarkable beach. This was just a beginning of our good times here. I will definitely come back again in this spacious, comfortable, and welcoming place.

What a wonderful older home. It will accommodate a group up to 8 people. We held a family reunion there with 8 people over 4 days. Each of the 4 bedrooms had a bathroom which was very convenient. We cooked several meals on the gas stove and on the gas grill outback. There were more than enough utensils in the kitchen. The table in the dining room was large enough to fit 8 people around it. There's space to the right of the driveway to play yard games, e.g. we played "Kubb". Across the street to the right of the gate is a trail that leads down to the bluffs and beach. That was lots of fun to explore. We definitely would stay here again.
