About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

This charming one-bedroom Albion vacation cottage sits on a shared eight acres and offers ocean views from the property, and an additional sleeping loft!

With room for four, you'll be under 10 miles from the popular coastal town of Mendocino. And while this property its shares eight acres with two other rental cottages, each has plenty of privacy, with separate parking areas and lots of outdoor space to roam.

The Fensalden Inn originally dates back to a stagecoach stop in the 1860s and today, this historic structure, once a watertower (from which it derives its name), offers guests a comfortable and unique Northern California retreat. Inside there are plenty of exposed wood beams and tall ceilings, with a spacious living room and a basic full kitchen.

The main level also has the bedroom, complete with a queen-size bed, access out to the deck, and antique-style furnishings. Head upstairs for the loft sleeping area with an additional queen bed.

The downstairs deck offers an additional spot to relax and enjoy a cool ocean breeze. And while there's no TV, you'll have WiFi and a CD player. Cell service is also available, but works only with some providers - like Verizon.

Perfect for a small family or two couples traveling together, the Tower House at Fensalden is set on eight acres and guests are welcome to hike and explore the property. You'll be less than one mile from ocean beaches and within a 26-mile drive of wineries and vineyards in nearby Anderson Valley.

Plan a vacation in charming, quiet Albion for easy access to Mendocino, Fort Bragg, ocean beaches, and plenty of hiking/biking near this Northern California Coast vacation cottage!

About Vacasa, CA - Northern California Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

The bedrooms and bathrooms were terrific, and the sunroom. living room, dining room and kitchen were all excellent and worked well for our group of 14 (staying in 3 of the 4 houses on the property).

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Tower Suite in Albion. It was beautiful and quiet. The surrounding area has lots to do and see. We lived the Mendocino Coastal Gardens and Skunk train.

Quiet and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. It was quiet and cozy. We could look at the ocean from the windows or deck. The smoke alarm was sensitive and it took a while to figure out how to cook without setting it off. Lol! We would stay here again. Thanks!

Not fancy; just bare basics.

  • 2 of 5

The &quot;tower&quot; was quaint and the view was absolutely beautiful. However, some of the furniture and carpets are very worn with stains and holes. The throw rug in the bathroom was torn and the kitchen is not equipped very well although it is small with not much space. I would not recommend cooking there. I don't think there was a bar-b-que, although I could be wrong. On the positive side, the setting is pretty and it was extremely quiet there.

Owner's Response: We appreciate having these things brought to our attention. We have removed the rug with the hole in it, and the owners will continue upgrading furnishings and the home as time progresses. Thank you!
