Gualala, CA – Northern California Dreaming

The splendor of the rugged Mendocino Coast is often veiled in coastal fog. But about three hours north of San Francisco on the swiveling curves of Highway 1 next to the Pacific Ocean, lies a “banana belt” where the magic of northern California emerges from the mist. Here you’ll find unaffected pastoral living with crashing ocean waves. Mar Vista offers an enchanting cluster of Shaker-style cabins, an organic veggie garden, and a chicken coop for fresh morning eggs. A sandy beach nearby and an outdoor Japanese soaking tub allow guests to bask in simple luxury far from city lights. Your dogs are welcome to join you.
