No matter how old you get, it’s magic.
With the great power of adulthood, though, comes great responsibility, which means reserving the perfect summer rental now — planning for fireflies while the magnolias are still in bloom.
Thusly, we present the Summer Rental Guide: our picks for the best cottages, castles and lodges from Mill Valley to Mount Lassen.
We’ve got a 1924 schoolhouse that’ll convince your kids they’re at the Mendocino version of Hogwarts.
A 32-acre apple farm from the family behind French Laundry.
An off-the-grid retreat on the highest peak west of the 101, with views of redwoods and ocean.
A Russian River cabin designed for Don Draper, if Draper was the kind of guy who knew how to be happy.
Because that’s all there is, right? Family, friends, beer and — for a little while — summer.
Make the most of all of them. Book now.
And see you out there.
