Albion proper is small and quiet, but offers a few conveniences that travelers will appreciate, like a full-service grocery store. There's also a pair of excellent dining options for special nights out, including the Ledford House and the restaurant at the Albion River Inn. Mendocino has even more choices, and the comparatively bustling commercial center of Fort Bragg is less than half an hour north.
The true attraction of Albion is its natural beauty. While the town itself is spectacularly positioned above the churning Pacific Ocean, there are trails to hike, rivers to kayak, and forests to explore further inland. Just north of town is Van Damme State Park, and to the south is the gorgeous Navarro River, flanked by old-growth redwoods.
When you're looking for a truly relaxing Mendocino vacation rental, consider choosing quiet, beautiful little Albion.
