Bodega Bay cottage description

This lovely cottage is located in the quaint village of Salmon Creek Beach. It is a quiet, secluded, peaceful sanctuary, yet only 55 miles from the sophisticated city of San Francisco and one mile north of Bodega Bay.

The finely appointed cottage is well suited for one or two couples, or a small family - each of the 2 bedrooms has a queen bed. The cottage is filled with attractive, comfortable furniture, primarily made by the custom woodworker/owner. The living room is filled with light and views. The master bedroom has a sleep number mattress so you can find your sleep groove. All linens are provided with extra towels for the beach, the hot tub or a sandy dog.

The North Sonoma coast is beautiful and relaxing. You don't need to leave the village at all - but if you do, you'll find something for everyone.

The beach is just down the street - explore the tide pools and the dunes, fly kites, build sandcastles or just walk for miles collecting sea glass and sand dollars. Hiking trails are nearby. There are quaint villages, shops and galleries filled with local arts and crafts, excellent restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms. Enjoy world class golfing, surfing and GREAT bird watching.

When you return, enjoy the Adirondack chairs in the yard or curl up in front of the stove with a good book. Sigh.

Since we are former residents, we can save you time, money and culinary assault. Just access our guest book or call for recommendations in advance.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We are former local residents/business owners. We purchased this 1929 cottage thirteen years ago and have remodeled it extensively. Most of the furniture was made by Craig, my husband. We love the ocean, sand dunes, the seasonal birds in Salmon Creek and the rugged beauty of this area. We have more sand dollars than we can count, jars of sea glass and a stellar collection of heart-shaped rocks from the beach. We want you to be happy and comfortable while you are here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay:
                  We drove up from the Bay Area for years to spend weekends on the Sonoma Coast. We had the 'I don't want to leave' discussion every Sunday night and often departed at 4 a.m. to get back to our jobs on Monday! Finally, we just bit the bullet and moved.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The beach is so close! We love sitting in the hot tub at night in different seasons...the din of the creek frogs in the Spring, the beautiful stars in the summer, the warmth of the Indian Summer in the Fall, the rain and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach in the winter.
