Overview

About the property

The Craftsman Cottage at Lichen Estate in the heart of Anderson Valley

Our Craftsman Cottage sits at the heart of Anderson Valley — 100 feet from the Lichen Estate winery, 500 feet from the Vineyard, and three miles from Boonville and Philo. The property offers a mix of vacation easy fun, with a generous porch surrounded by ample lawns, picnic tables, shade-trees, swings, and hammocks. True wilderness beckons hikers just over the backyard fence. Five minutes by car lands you at Hendy Woods and the most popular swimming hole on the Navarro River. Thirty minutes delivers the mouth of the Navarro and the Pacific Ocean. Fifty minutes to the historic towns of Elk and Mendocino. An hour's drive rewards you with Fort Bragg and Glass Beach, the Skunk Train, and the Noyo Harbor.

About The Owner

We're the founders and proprietors of Lichen Estate winery and vineyard. Before starting Lichen we founded then sold Breggo Cellars. The Cottage was once our full-time home. We now live in Healdsburg and rent the cottage to guests of the winery and Anderson Valley.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Why The Owner chose North Coast California

Lichen Estate offers 203-acres of Anderson Valley bliss. The property has half a mile of highway frontage, and lies three miles and three highway minutes from both Boonville and Philo. We have upgraded the Craftsman Cottage, built in 1920, with modern amenities and comforts. But just over the back fence lurks a stunning wilderness, with lichen-covered oaks and madrones, watched over by bucks and mountain lions, wild boar and bear, wild turkeys and bald eagles, kites and flycatchers and hummingbirds, tree frogs, bullfrogs, salamanders and snakes.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris vineyard is planted meter-by-meter, on the same high-density spacing as the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy and Champagne. The winery makes world class Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and sparkling wines. A two acre pond hosts egrets and herons, goldeneyes and mallards, canadian geese and a bevy of polywogs and frogs... plus any swimmer brave enough to wade into the reeds and clay silt. Four unique creeks carve the property's watershed and cross the highway in search of the Navarro River.

Cozy property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property is a delight; clean, comfortable and with lots of natural light. Loved the small wood-burning stove in the kitchen area, to relax in front of with a glass of wine from the winery next door. Close to everything, halfway between Boonville and Philo. Must try the winery next door!! Thank you Doug.

Great location in an amazing community!

  • 3 of 5

We very much enjoyed our first visit to Anderson valley. The location of the cottage was fantastic and we liked spending time on the front porch. Our twins loved playing hide and seek upstairs!

Doug was a great host and very quick to respond. However we found ourselves wishing the indoors were a bit less tired and there was a more welcoming outdoor space. The home was tidy overall but the fridge was not very clean.

All of that said we loved the community and had a good time overall. Thank you for having us.

Fantastic Wedding Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic wedding weekend while staying at the Craftsman Cottage at Lichen Estate. The quaint farm house met all of our needs. Jacob, the winery attendant, was informative and friendly. The wines were fantastic. If we ever find our way back up to Anderson Valley again, we will definitely look to stay here again. Thank you to Doug for making this great home available.

Get place for a get away in Anderson Valley

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend during the Auslace Festival in February. House was convenient to all the wineries we visited and Doug was very accommodating.

We loved the house and found it very clean and well equipped. The antiques and original fixtures were amazing, beds really confortable and the wood stove once it was going gave us enough heat on one of the coldest dates this season.

Doug answered all of our questions immediately once we arrived and went out of his way to help me retrieve a left behind pair of shoes.

And if the wineries, hiking, and great views aren't enough - the stargazing was incredible right from the front yard.

Definitely will return.
