This five and one half bedroom house was one of the first houses in the original subdivision. It was built by two families as a ski cabin and is comfortable with groups large and small. It is on a level lot and backs up to open forest. It is unique in that there is a private back yard with fire pit to enjoy the starry nights. The open floor plan of the kitchen and living area makes for enjoyable meal preparation and easy conversation. Bedroom one and two are on the first floor. Bedroom one has a queen bed and bunk with a double on the bottom. Bedroom two has a queen and twin. There is one bath downstairs and one bath upstairs. Upstairs is bedroom 3 with a queen bed, bedroom 4 has two bunks, one with a double on the bottom. Bedroom five has a king size bed. The house originally had six bedrooms and this room now has a washer and dryer that can be hidden behind the screen and has a twin bed and great view of the forest. It is a great neighborhood for quiet walks and there is close access to hiking the Old Lincoln highway as well as the Pacific Crest Trail. This comfortable, authentic cabin is and continues to be a great vacation destination for families of all sizes. The house is tucked into a quiet back corner of the area situated on a curve so that the few cars that do pass by must go very slow. This makes it a very safe area for children, pets and playing. It is a short walk to the beach and a great area for biking. July and August are weekly rentals.
