LAYTONVILLE & LEGGETT
Laytonville and Leggett are the "Highest Towns"
(Elevation 1,650+ feet) On Redwood Highway. Cradled
by the richly timbered Coast Range Mountains,
Laytonville was settled in the beautiful 12 mile long
Long Valley. In the last few years Laytonville has
gone through a delightful renaissance and is a
pleasant destination to visit. Mountain people abound
with individuality and Laytonville is no exception.
The community is unincorporated, and the beauty of
Long Valley makes it a perfect setting for retirement.
The growing family will find a progressive Laytonville
Unified School District. The spirit in which
Laytonville was founded in 1874 by Frank B. Layton
is still alive with many independent thinking business
people. Laytonville offers several restaurants, motels,
grocery stores and shops to explore. Many Laytonville
businesses serve organic foods.
As you enter town from the south you'll notice the
RV campground, Chief drive-in and the first of three
motels. Overnight accommodations can be booked at the
Cottage Motel / 984-6480 or the Townhouse Motel
/ 984-8492. The Laytonville Inn (now Wheels Restaurant)
was one of the most longevous coffee shops and cafes on
the Redwood Highway. It offers a good WiFi connection
with purchase. Nice places to eat in town are the
Chief Smokehouse, La Casona Del Cielo Mexican/Latin
Restaurant, Pour Girls Coffee Cafe, The Good Food Store
(Natural Foods) and Geiger's Market and Deli. These
dining establishments are exceedingly popular among
the locals. To the west is the tiny logging town of
Branscomb and on the coast Westport. To the south is
Willits, the heart of Mendocino County. To the north
is Legget, home of the world famous Drive-Thru-Tree.
The Peg House is a great place to stop for an espresso
or delicious snacks. The tallest trees on earth stand
in the Avenue of the Giants farther north.
