Learn more about this land: Our Country Home sits on 6 acres of meadows and woodlands, offering a park-like setting for up to 2 guests to get away in the heart of Mendocino County, just 4 miles from the town of Willits. Guests have access to the large lawn, yard games, and fire pit. New Starlink high speed internet and wifi are available. Spy steelhead in the seasonal creek. Or take a great hike right out the door. Its quiet out here, the air is fresh and the night sky is big and starry, so don't forget your stargazing app. The cabin’s modern interior sleeps two— one queen bed fitted with cotton jersey sheets and down bedding, kitchenette with snacks, a writing desk and chair, tv/dvd set, and en-suite half bath.  The private outdoor shower room with on-demand hot water is just across the yard.  There is a propane camp stove and picnic table for alfresco dining on the deck overlooking the creek. You'll need to provide your own small canisters of propane. Feel free to use Our Country Home as a jumping-off point as you explore beautiful Mendocino county.  Or recalibrate yourself right here.  Read. Write. Create. A seasonal creek runs through the property.  Wild blackberries and blackcap raspberries are everywhere and you may luck out and find a few wild strawberries too.  The large lawn area is great for day dreaming, sun bathing, and games (we have frisbee and bean bag toss).  The garden has mature apple trees, grape vines, vegetables and herbs. We grow a little weed here and enjoy making edibles, which we're happy to share. The local fauna include wild turkeys, deer, bunnies, hummingbirds and more.  Enjoy cocktails around the fire pit, live music (if you bring your own instruments :-)), dance, or stargaze— the night sky is big and dark up here.  We’ve got a few board games, playing cards, and a pretty great selection of  movies from the past several years plus more titles if movie-watching is your thing.  Starlink high-speed internet and Wi-fi are available.   We are about 4 miles from town, where you'll find gas and provision, including Safeway, Mariposa Organic Market, and Rite-Aid.  Howard Memorial Hospital is also nearby. Besides chillin', there are many nice things to do around here.  If you're looking for relief from the heat, there are a couple of great swimming holes along the Eel river, a few miles north of town.  Schanachie Pub, on Main street in Willits, has great live music and an impressive selection of local brews, hard ciders, kombuchas, and wine (they only accept cash).  There are many wineries, and wine tasting opportunities, along the 101.  And Orr Hot Springs and Vichy Hot Springs are not too far away. Checkin:  We'll try to be here to get you settled in.  But occasionally we may not.  No worries.  We'll send you the cabin keypad and wifi codes before your arrival.  That way you can call or text if you have any questions.  There is also a folder with details about the property and Willits area in the cabin. ***COVID-19 protocols:  We'll continue our thorough cleaning and sanitizing of all linens and surfaces in the cabin, outdoor shower and fire pit areas, paying special attention to high touch surfaces.  We look forward to hosting you.  Be well.The Cozy Cabin sits on 6 acres of meadows and woodlands, offering a park-like setting for up to 2 guests to get away in the heart of Mendocino County, just 4 miles from the town of Willits.

Cozy Cabin in the Woods
Lovely cabin, beyond glamping!
Leslie’s cabin is very cozy indeed! We definitely enjoyed our stay. The cabin has a small kitchenette (no sink, so stove) with a mini fridge, counter space, microwave and coffee making paraphernalia. If you plan to cook, definitely make like you’re camping and bring all the necessary wares. The composting toilet is a great idea but it’s mechanism was a little wonky and the flushing contraption malfunctioned on us a couple times. The outdoor shower is lovely and a small trek from the cabin. There’s a wonderful propane fire pit with comfy chairs to sit in and take in the stars. The only downsides were the yellow jackets when we ate outside, the toilet and having to walk and up down a small hill when we cooked but it was worth it. Willits itself isn’t much to write home about but you’re only an hour or so from Fort Bragg/Mendocino and the coast. In general, I highly recommend!

Cozy Cabin in the Woods
retreat from reality
The perfect retreat - and Leslie is the perfect host! The cabin is as cute as it looks, completely secluded yet comfortably appointed with a good bed, bedding and fluffy towels. You'll sleep well here. Spotlessly clean, too. Wifi is fine for email, but you won't be doing Zoom calls from here :) Also, the access road is challenging for sports cars but regular sedans will have no trouble.
