WELCOME TO FOR THE JOY OF IT! Creative Retreat
A quiet country retreat in the middle of the forest yet minutes from the town of Mendocino. Come enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest, hot tub under the stars, play in my yurt/art studio, and walk the labyrinth in the meadow. Wildlife sightings are possible from the solar greenhouse loft. You will be the only guests here. My place is nurturing and rejuvenating, unique and unforgettable!

Prostor

A PRIVATE RETREAT
As you wind your way down my private road, off the beaten path, you will find my three story country house tucked in the redwood forest with trees all around. My seven acre property affords complete privacy from the outer world but the town of Mendocino is just minutes away. In the Forest View Room you will feel like you are staying in the treetops.

UNIQUE DESIGN ELEMENTS
The house is unique, designed and built in 1979. The Forest View Room is on the second floor of the house and has high ceilings and lots of light. There is a queen size bed, a desk, a comfortable recliner and a bookshelf with a good variety of books. My photos do not do justice to this room as it is impossible to capture the feeling of the vertical space that is part of the rooms design.

SUITE OF ROOMS FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT
You will have a suite of rooms, the Forest View Room, a room across the hall with hardwood floors, table and chairs, hand crafted by my great grandfather and a food prep area off to the side, with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, teapot and refrigerator. Just down the hall, you will have a PRIVATE BATHROOM with mexican paver tile floors, a big tiled walk in shower with bench and a six foot long claw foot bathtub. The solar collecting greenhouse for this solar home is adjacent to the bathroom through antique oak french doors. From the chair on the balcony of the greenhouse you can look out over the forest and meadow below. Deer wander by regularly and you might catch a glimpse of Mr. Fox and more!

SEPARATE ENTRANCE
There is a separate upstairs guest entrance.

HOT TUB IS ALWAYS ON
The hot tub is now up and running. Soak under a giant redwood tree while you wake up enjoying the sounds of the forest around you. Also nice during the full moon and on starry nights. The hot tub is extremely private, placed so that it is not visible from the house, no neighbors, just forest all around.

YURT/ART STUDIO
On my property you will also find a 27 foot yurt, surrounded by a ring of redwood trees. The yurt functions as my art/music studio and is the home of my expressive arts therapy practice. Use of the yurt can be added to your stay when I am not using it. The yurt is a great place to relax, read, write, do some art or music or just enjoy the forest. Guests are welcome to play with the art supplies and musical instruments as part of their stay. There are paints, chalk and oil pastels, charcoal, colored pencils, colored pens and lots of paper. In other areas you will find collage making supplies, clay and a writing table. There are musical instruments of all types, a piano, drums, rhythm instruments etc. It is a fun place to explore. It guarantees a fun evening after a day out exploring. I ask for a small donation for heat and art supplies. I work as an expressive arts therapist. If you are interested talk to me about having a "creativity playshop" while you are here. You can also sign up for a "creative sparks" retreat.

Dostupno gostima

There is lots of quiet and privacy at my seven acre forest retreat. Basically the second floor of the house is yours to enjoy. You will have your own separate entrance. Guests have access to the Forest View Room, a private bathroom, a seating area in in the solar collecting green house loft which looks out over the meadow. There is an additional room that serves as a semi-kitchen/dining room with small refrig, microwave, toaster and coffee and tea making supplies. So cooking possibilities are limited and the kitchen downstairs is off limits. The yurt art studio is available when I'm not using it. If you play the piano, arrangements can be made to play the grand piano in my living room. There is a piano in the yurt as well.

Interakcija s gostima

I enjoy greeting guests and welcoming you to my home. I am happy to answer any questions you might have and provide all my local recommendations. I'm always happy to visit, show guests my yurt/art studio, and arrange to share my grand piano in my living room, but am completely respectful of those who just want to be left to themselves to enjoy my property and Mendocino on their own. I work as an expressive arts therapist and am available to facilitate creative arts sessions in my yurt.

INTERNET, CELL PHONES, HOUSE PHONE AND MISC. AND DISCLAIMERS
There is wireless internet access on the property but it is probably slower than what you are used to. It works well for internet and emails but does not do well with streaming. Cell phone coverage is spotty at my house and the area as well. Verizon and smaller carriers work in some places on the property. ATT only works in town. The house phone is available for your use. A stair lift can accommodate those who would have difficulty with stairs. When you book with airbnb, the 11% county bed tax is already included in your $130 room rate. I'm sorry that I can't accommodate one night stays as I just can't keep up that pace.

WINTER WEATHER WARNING: Living in the forest, we sometimes lose power in the big winter storms. It wouldn't just be my house, but the general area. Should that happen, I have emergency supplies to get you through until the power returns. Still it is an inconvenience. Usually the outages are short lived. Guests who have been here when the power is out have graciously enjoyed the adventure. (Especially the oatmeal I cooked for them over my camp stove one morning.)

No pets please. No drugs or smoking of any kind. No Candles. It is fine if you need to arrive late. Just let me know ahead of time and we can make a plan for access to your room. Quiet time after 10. Hot tub hours vary with the season but usually available from 8 am - 9:30 pm. Thats not a rigid rule, its just that I sleep near the hot tub so need privacy at my end of the house.

We loved being away from town in the midst of the gorgeous forest! Our room was cozy yet roomy enough, the bed and pillows were just right. We were in the room with the queen bed and windows that looked out to the trees. It happened to be a full moon which we saw through the skylight above us late at night. The bathroom was great for two...plenty of counter space, a very large blue tiled shower, great water pressure and the longest soaking bath tub I've ever seen. The decor is homey and cozy...this is someone's home. Marilyn made sure we had everything we needed and was very accessible if we needed anything but was very respectful of our privacy. The night we used the hot tub was foggy but it was lovely to soak and look up at the trees through the fog. The art yurt is down a path that looks like a hobbit forest and has just about every kind of art supply imaginable. My husband read and snoozed in a comfortable recliner while I worked in my art journal. We enjoyed Mendocino and its shops and restaurants very much but really relaxed in our forest retreat. Thank you Marilyn!

Marilyn's place was wonderful to stay at. She was always available for anything that we needed (an extra fan, to get into the yurt, etc) but always giving us space whenever we needed -- the perfect host. She left granola and fruit out for us and gave us terrific suggestions about where to hike and eat. Her home was also very beautiful and unique. Her garden and surrounding area are lovely, but the yurt was the highlight of our trip. It was full of musical instruments and art tools, and we had a wonderful time exploring all of it. I would be glad to stay at Marilyn's place the next time that I'm back in Mendocino.

We had a lovely stay at Marilyn's. Marilyn is a great host, easy-going, generous and responsive. It is a wonderfully quiet and peaceful place in the woods, but close enough to Mendocino and the coast. We also got to enjoy spending a little creative time in the yurt. Thank you Marilyn.

I was very excited for my trip to Mendocino after booking at Marilyn's place. I feel the word 'retreat' was a very appropriate to describe the place because my friend and I had a restful and healing time while here. The house is beautiful, charmingly lived-in and full of grace, all reflective of the lovely host herself. The weather was nice so we did a lot of exploring in the area, hiking, kayaking, etc. but I could have spent the entire day happily indoors reading on the balcony, playing/reading in the art yurt, and using the hot tub in the evening. A list of helpful things provided included: breakfast materials, tea/coffee, mosquito spray, towels, shower toiletries. I wish I bought my fuzzy socks and robe/cardigan to be extra cozy at night. I got to play with pastels in the house, skim through insightful books about dreams and journaling in the yurt, have quiet reflection in the hot tub at night, and read on the balcony with a cup of tea in the morning. These quiet and peaceful activities were an important part of our stay here, and we were very happy for the rest and solitude after each day exploring. Take your friend, your partner, your family, or just bring yourself and have a nice time here. Thanks again for the stay!

Marilyn was such an accommodating and friendly host! Even though she was away our first night, she maintained great communication for a smooth arrival. Her recommendations were fantastic, and we had so much fun during our stay! Marilyn's home is BEAUTIFUL. We loved the seclusion of the forest, but also the accessibility to the middle of town. It really was the best of both worlds! We can't wait for our next trip!

This house is so unique and gorgeous! We loved our quick get away, it is so relaxing out in the forest. Marilyn is a wonderful host and was so helpful in her recommendations. Our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to do everything that we had wanted. Will be back!

I've lived in Mendocino and on this property for over 30 years. I raised my three sons here in the forest and then founded and run FOR THE JOY OF IT! Creative Arts Center. Aside from my vacation rentals, I offer creative retreats and have an expressive arts therapy practice. I teach people how they can use the arts for healing, self discovery and as spiritual practice. In my own creative life I paint, make art quilts, write and play the piano. I love nature and take myself out into it as often as possible.
