Eureka house description

This home, built nearly 100 years ago by a lumber baron for his family, has been completely renovated for your enjoyment. The house is surrounded, and hidden by 2 acres of mature trees of all kinds, which were collected from around the world by the original owner.
The spacious living room and dining room has the original beautiful curly redwood wains-coating, window framing and cabinets and is separated from the gourmet kitchen by a see-through gas fireplace, for added warmth and charm.
Each of the 5 bedrooms are large and each has a private bath. There are wheelchair ramps and wheelchair friendly bathrooms. The 6th bedroom is a cozy studio with its own outside entrance. It is private and is separated from the main living area.
Also to enjoy, is the game room and wet bar located in the daylight basement. This room is great for parties, gatherings or just fun for the group. If you are having an event you will be required to fill out an event contract and pay an extra fee.
PLEASE check out the rent charge closely, and the Sample Quote too ! I wanted small groups to enjoy the house too and not be scared off by the price of the whole house. In by doing so the Sample Quote just picks up the lowest price, Main level with just 2 bedrooms and NOT for the whole house. It is not my intention to misrepresent the $800 per night for the whole house and the Cleaning for $300, Please adjust for how many people in your group, 2 per bedroom.
To help with your assignment of rooms per bed sizes and location, here it is broken down:

              Year Purchased: 1966

              About: The couple who own this unique home has been active community members their life-long. Gene retired from PG&E and now spends his time collecting treasures from yards sales around town. He is still a member of the local Kiwanis, Shriners,and the Elks Lodge. He enjoys his little dog, a couple cats, and his pet goat. LeAna enjoys going to Bingo, and playing card games of all kinds... and has recently discovered Angry Birds on her Ipad. While raising 5 of us kids, she was a past-president of the PTA, and was a Boy/Girl Scout leader, and of course, the Girl Scout Cookie Chairman for many years. Ruth is the family Vacation Rental expert. She has vast experience in the Real Estate world, and has been manager of a successful Vacation Rental business in the past. Now, since 1999, she has owned and operated her own ocean Front Vacation Rental property in the quaint village of Mendocino, Ca, ( vrbo.com/118096), as well as managing additional family real estate matters.

And is active in the Eureka Kiwanis and with the Board of Realtors.

              Why Eureka:
              Five children, and some grandchildren, were raised in this home. Everyone is all grown up now and have gone their separate ways...this house needs to be enjoyed again, by family and friends. It would be a great place for a family reunion, a wedding, or for a group of friends to have a gathering. Or a seminar or re-treat or ??.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Shower or tub?.. Each bedroom has a private bathroom....be sure to 'dubs' the room with your favorite bathing preference. Having laundry issues during your stay? Don't fret...there are 2 sets of large capacity washers/dryers available. Sun rise or sunset? enjoy the Morning sun deck for your coffee, and the west side deck for your evening libation during a dazzling setting sun. Lovely! (poor weather conditions are not our fault) Too many cooks in the kitchen? No worries.. with our 8 burner gas stove, 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers ...there's room and appliances, pots n pans and cooking gadgets for all of you to enjoy.... or enjoy yourself in game room while everyone else is cooking..., it has a fully equipped wet bar, a ping-pong/pool table, and a poker table. Also a large screen TV. And a rare working player piano. There are 2 restrooms located in the bar for your convenience. And be sure to take a gander at, and be properly impressed by our array of childhood trophies ...proudly displayed! : )
