The Frolic, a delightful vacation rental -on the oceanfront of the Mendocino Coast – and just 3 miles from Mendocino Village – is charming, with convenient access to the beach at the foot of the bluffs, and with numerous modern amenities. With views of the ocean from almost every room & surrounded by the beauty of the coastal location, this spacious home provides a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Frolic Cove - just steps away from your front door – takes its name from the tragedy of the 1850 wreck of the clipper ship, “Frolic”. Laden with Chinese household goods and bound for San Francisco, the Frolic was a total loss from the storm; it remains one of California’s most important Gold-Rush-Era shipwrecks. The search for the lost ship resulted in the discovery of the riches of the redwood forests along the Mendocino Coast.
You and your guests will be enamored with the idyllic (and convenient) location of this contemporary country cottage!
