Overview

About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Forest Suite is located just 5 minutes south from the village of Mendocino on 5 acres of beautiful redwoods.This 560 sq. ft. apartment plus 200sq ft deck, is upstairs from my 2,000 sq. ft artist’s studio, which is not in use when guests are staying. Built entirely with redwood, recycled fir and barn wood with cement counters and shower this romantic getaway is a very special spot.

The south wall is all windows with a deck overlooking the surrounding trees. It’s very peaceful and sunny and is frequented by honeymooners, artists, writers and those seeking total privacy. A few books and screenplays have been written here! Take a walk through the forest or just relax and enjoy the tranquility.

About Jennifer Linley Taylor

Collage is not only my medium as an artist, it best describes my life. I've traveled extensively throughout the world and have lived in France, Spain and New York City. I have worked as a fashion model, singer/songwriter and now as a full time artist, working in my studio out on Gordon Lane. I've had a variety of exhibitions worldwide, exhibited at the United Nations building in New York and at the world renowned Museo Vittoriano in Rome, Italy. I've done installations for Gallagher's Art and Fashion Gallery in Manhattan, and for French designer Catherine Malandrino's Soho store. My works are in private collections throughout the world. I have been coming to Mendocino my whole life, at first to visit my Grandmother and now as a homeowner for the last 20 years. I love to introduce people to this beautiful and unique area and enjoy meeting people from around the world that come here to visit.

Jennifer Linley Taylor purchased this studio in 1995

Why Jennifer Linley Taylor chose Mendocino

I was looking for a forested piece of property where I could build a barnlike structure for my studio and also have a living space that would work well for a vacation rental. When I found these 5 acres so close to town, I knew I had found the perfect spot. As I do not live on the property, this works out really well, as I only work when then place is not rented.

What makes this studio unique

The proximity to Mendocino village, the privacy and total silence other than birds and the sound of the wind in the redwoods makes this place perfect for those that are seeking refuge. It instills creativity and thought, peace and harmony. From the front door you can walk through your own forest or go on a long walk down Gordon Lane and across State Park to the headlands.

A Slice of Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful location and amazing space to stay in. Woke up to tree tops and birds chirping. All the essentials were there to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Thank you for sharing with VRBO, we enjoyed being there in the Forest Suite and hope to return sooner than later.

Wow!!!! What an amazing place.!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I felt so relaxed the minute we arrived. Everything we needed was there and we just let the cottage, the trees and nature melt away our stress. We will definitely be returning to this place.

Thank you Jennifer for such a magical place.

Perfectly Charming, just as described, wonderful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Visited late February (drove up from Napa Valley) to enjoy a more secluded stay a nearer to the coast.

The wonderful, tree-lined deck provides a perfect setting for breakfast, early evening cheese and wine and evening star-gazing (depending on the weather).

The sky-lights, high ceilings and reclaimed wood provide a airy, charming environment.

We will visit again & very much recommend this gem to those who enjoy something more private.

Perfect Forest Suite in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend at the Forest Suite. The fireplace was cozy when it was raining outside and the view at night of all the stars was incredible. Jennifer's place was well appointed and had everything we needed. Can't wait for our next visit to Mendocino!

Thank you for creating such a wonderful place to stay in Mendocino and sharing it with the world. Ever since we discovered The Forest Suite, this is the only place that we stay now days when we head up to Mendocino. Again, thank you!
