                                What a wonderful location and lovely vacation property. The cottage was comfortable for the three of us and the view cannot be beaten. There is not a bad seat in the great room. All of the amenities you could possibly want are there and the updated kitchen was just right. Lunch on the deck was a treat and walks on the beach easy and lots of room. My adult nieces and I highly recommend this cozy, cute cottage.

                                We enjoyed watching and listening to the waves crash along the shore and on to the rocks in the surf. The cabin is very comfortable and convenient to town and restaurants. We enjoyed all of the amenities provided such as the gas fireplace, comfortable furniture and the hot tub. What a way to spend a few days on the coast! Great birding and wine tasting in the area. It was a great get-away for us from winter weather in Montana. Thanks for allowing our dog to join us.

                                We celebrated our 20th anniversary by staying in Aftermath for a week and used it as a base while we explored the coast and Sonoma County. Our 7 perfect days started the same - with a fire in the fireplace and sipping coffee and tea in the two comfy chairs that face the glorious beach and surf. Our evenings ended in a similar way - on the comfortable sofas, reading in front of the fire or sitting with the lights off and staring at the night sky through those wonderful windows over the beach. The tender loving care of Aftermath is so evident - it is rustic, charming and so comfortable - with everything we needed to settle in for the week. The showers were warm, the beds comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and the views were spectacular. We alternated days between hiking and exploring the spectacular coast and visiting the towns, wineries and restaurants of Sonoma County. We were slow to start on some days because of the comfort of Afterwards - and being mesmerized by the surf. We were always happy to return at the end of the day. We highly recommend Aftermath - thank you Beth for making it available to people like us. We hope to return again soon!

                                There isn't a lot to add here that hasn't already been said. As I write this I am looking out the window from this adorable cabin where there is nothing but ocean for miles. While it is rustic and boasts that charm in its décor, it has all the modern conveniences you would want. We invited our folks to join us for a few days and we have all enjoyed our time here very much. It is peaceful and inviting ... the day starts with kicking on the fireplace to knock off the chill. Then we open up the windows to enjoy the breeze and watch a gorgeous sunset from the comfort of the cabin property only to wind up where we began with a fire while playing dominoes before bed. There are countless things to do in and around the area to fill your days and the owner provides info upon arrival to venture out and enjoy. Our little dog very much enjoyed being able to tag along. We will be sad to pack up and leave this special place tomorrow but hope to return someday

                                Loved Aftermath! We (2 couples) celebrating a 50th BD stayed almost a week at Aftermath. Everything was wonderful. You can easily walk down to the beach and watch the waves (watch out for the sneaker waves-they do exist) or stroll along and search for seaglass (we found 1 piece). We drove down the road to Goats beach and through a little beach hike saw harbour seals. We did a small wine tour of Sonoma county and ate at fantastic places--I highly recommend the breakfasts at the Garden Grill (on the way to Healdsburg) and the Cafe Station at Point Reyes. We shopped the farmers market in Santa Rosa (it was great) and picked up fresh greens for our salad, and steaks to grill. We ate supper at the Union Hotel in Occidental the night before we left and were sad we didn't find it earlier in our trip. It was fantastic. We did the cedar spa treatment at Osmosis Spa. I thought it would be a little hokey-but it was incredible. We loved it. Each night after exploring for the day we would return home to Aftermath and relax either in the hot tub or chill out by the fireplace. I would definetly return to Sonoma County and Aftermath.

                                My husband and I had a memorable and amazing stay at Aftermath. The house is charming and authentic with all the coziness of home. It is apparent from the moment you step inside that there have been many generations of love lavished on the cottage, from family members to a multitude of returning guests! Above and beyond, though,you cannot duplicate the view and setting. It is just unbelievable!! You are on the edge of the bluff overlooking one of the most dramatic and interesting beaches in California. Sitting in the jacuzzi and looking out over that expanse just takes your breath away. We were there during an especially strong wind storm and watching the ocean and waves lash the shore was spectacular. It was so cozy inside with the fireplace going, listening to the wind howling! This is a wonderful place from which to explore the area. You are close enough to Bodega Bay but not bothered by the constant flow of tourists. There is great food all around you- Terrapin Creek, Spud Point Crab Co. to mention a few. This is certainly a place where memories can be made and we are happy to be looking forward to our return as soon as possible. Thank you Beth for everything!

                                This was our first visit to "Aftermath" ... and while standing at the airport waiting for my luggage, the owner calls! I wonder to myself, "is this a good call, or a bad call"? Beth was informing me of a few small glitches, all outside of her control ... but she definitely had then under control. She kept in communication with us until everything was fixed, without being bothersome, a great host. Now to the best part! This place exceeded my expectations. I would recommend it to young honeymooners for a romantic getaway, as well as late year anniversary celebrations, and even small families. Aftermath allows you to make it what you want. My husband and I (married 28 years), met our daughter and her husband (married 1 year) for a much needed vacation. We live in Wisconsin and they live in Montana, and we hadn't seen each other since Thanksgiving. By the way .... our son in law is a Math teachter! We love cooking, playing cards, reading books, watching the sunset, walking the beach, etc. Aftermath gave us that home away from home ... to do just that. But at the same time, we were within easy driving distance, and took advantage of that, of many interesting places to visit. We drove north to the little town of Elk for a great view of the coast and lunch at Queenie's Roadhouse. We drove south to Point Reyes for fresh oysters from Drake's and visited with the owner about the history of the area. Drove through the Russian River valley area and toured a few vineyards near Calistoga and St Helena one day ... drove through Petaluma and toured a few vineyards near Napa on another day. Great food at Lucas Warf near by in Bodega Bay. A hop, skip, and a jump ... and we were in Armstrong Redwood Forest. I am a horse owner and talked my family into riding at near by Chancelor Ranch. Beautiful views from their property, wranglers were very accomodating, horses were super quiet. Would recommend to non-horse owners to give it a try. I have to admit, someone else's horses are never as fun as your own. All in all ... absolutely fabulous vacation ... and "Aftermath" played a big role in that. Thanks for sharing with us.

                                Upon entering this cozy, well appointed cabin the one word you would say is, "WOW"! The view is spectacular and the accomodations are wonderful. This was our first but not last visit to "aftermath". We are from the Northern California Valley wh usually travelled to the Oregon coast every year. Not now....we have found a closer if not better place at the beach. Thanks, Beth for the wonderful stay.

                                By this time I've lost track exactly how many times we've stayed at "Aftermath", but it's always wonderful. A new gate to keep the dog in the front yard (THANKS!), new furniture in the largest bedroom and to my amazement when we arrived Beth (one of owners) was in the house grumbling that she had been unhappy with the internet speed and wanted to make sure it was adjusted before we arrived! Repairs happened ASAP and I was even more impressed with how cared for guests are in this one of a kind home. Can't wait until our next stay!

                              Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay:
                              Why 'Aftermath?' In 1955, our grandparents, math teachers from Concord, California, bought this fisherman’s cabin to spend summers away from the East Bay heat. Over the years, next generations have expanded and improved it, while maintaining its charm. In honor of our grandparents, we call it 'Aftermath.'
