          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: We are both semi-retired. Moved up to Woodfords in December 2008. You will enjoy the serenity of our Guest House on the river.

          Why the Owner Chose Hope Valley:
          We have been coming up here for 35 years. We love the peacefulness and tranquility of the area. The property has been in the Merrill Family for over 150 years.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Woodfords has everything or very close to everything in sporting. We are within 30 minutes of Kirkwood and Heavenly Valley, California and Nevada. River, stream and lake fishing is every direction you turn. Golfing & Disc Golfing a short drive away. World class rock climbing, cycling and hiking is right in your backyard. Extremely dark nights provide great stargazing. You name it, it's here.
