Learning guitar by osmosis...

Location & Accommodations
Mendocino, CA

Music sounds especially beautiful on the northern California coast! Our camp site is just a ten minute walk from the beach and a short drive to Mendocino village. Campers are often torn between enjoying gorgeous hiking trails or beaches, and making music with new friends. We think that the Mendocino coast is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The nearest airport is San Francisco International. The drive north is approximately 4 hours from the airport or 3.5 hours from San Francisco.  We try to help people connect to share rides or rental cars.
This is really Mendocino!

Our camp site is a rustic, homey farmhouse in the middle of a nature preserve. Campers lodge in the Farmhouse bedrooms, cabins or tent spaces at our camp site. Crackling fires, garden dining, campfire circle, birdsong and meadow flowers, forest jam spaces...and lovely notes on the breeze!
Those who prefer more privacy or luxury can stay at inns in nearby Mendocino or Fort Bragg.

Please click here to see the fees associated with each lodging option.

For campers who choose to lodge away from our camp site, we recommend the Pine Beach Inn, a motel located five minutes from camp, in Fort Bragg. It is relatively inexpensive, particularly for double occupancy. The phone number is 707/964-5603. Please note that campers lodging in nearby inns must make their own lodging arrangements.

Fabulous Food!

We serve delicious, wholesome, fresh, homemade food prepared in the Farmhouse kitchen. Guitar Camp cuisine emphasizes whole foods and meals balanced for nutritiousness, flavor and beauty. We offer vegetarian alternatives at every meal. Hot drinks and snacks are available throughout the day and evening. Our kitchen magicians cook all day long while we study guitar and play -- and they sing to the food as they cook. Imagine the ecstasy of sitting down to a lunch lovingly prepared while you spend the morning in guitar classes!
