WELCOME TO HOWARD CREEK RANCH

A Magical Getaway

There’s a place up in Northern Mendocino where Nature, Art and Magic collide. To get there, you will drive along winding roads until you get past cities, past stress, way past the expected. You’ll arrive where the redwoods meet the Mendocino coastline to a place where time moves differently and the air is fragrant with jasmine.

Here, at Howard Creek Ranch, you will be swept up in the wonder of the ongoing vision crafted over 40 years by an artist/builder and a flower child. Owners Sally and Sonny have dedicated their lives to creating nests worthy of your sweetest dreams, worthy of reconnecting with your mind, body and soul. Each of our rooms are entirely unique, hand-crafted and luscious. There is no obvious line between indoors and the sweetness of coastal air, the wildness of blackberries and blooms or the cacophony of birdsongs.

Peace curls up here. Book pages turn. Love is made. Friendships are nourished. Ideas and creativity are given a chance to breathe and come to life.
