About the owner: Nine years ago my wife and I fell in love with an abandoned restaurant with four tired cottages on three acres of wild blackberries and old growth redwoods on Austin Creek. It has been an exhausting/exhilarating labor of love that has enriched our lives in more ways than we ever imagined. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have!
Why the Owner Chose Cazadero: We spent nine years walking past this cottage and dreaming of living there someday. Imagining having a cup of coffee on the front deck in the morning with the gentle babble of the creek for company. When it finally came up for sale, we bent over backwards to be able to make our dream come true. We hope that you will enjoy being a part of our dream.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We own and are the bakers at Raymond's Bakery Bed & Breakfast just a three minute walk around the redwoods. So be ready for some gold-medal baked goodies to welcome you to our corner of paradise. We can also share the secrets of a few swimming holes and where to find the best skipping stones. The cottage is directly across from the creek. You can hear the babbling from the bedroom windows as you fall asleep.
