                  Year Purchased: 1977

                  Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach:
                  Stinson Beach has been a favorite destination since I was a girl. My children and other relatives have lived in, or visited the town for over 50 years!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  There is a calmness and quiet on the hill above the summer crowds. Also the hillside seems to naturally amplify the sound of the surf!
