Gualala house description

Located on the edge of the bluff in Gualala, Cook Cottage is perfectly suited for a romantic retreat or a fun getaway for up to 4 adults. The views are fantastic from everywhere in the house, even the bathrooms! Furnishings include ample seating both indoors and out on the view deck; great electronics including flat screen TVs with Blu-ray players in living room and both bedrooms (cable in living room and one bedroom), iPod docking music tower in living area, and docking alarm clocks in bedrooms; high end Aireloom mattresses on the two king beds; and wifi throughout.

The thoughtful provisions extend to the very well equipped kitchen with fun accessories for those meals you never have the time for at home for instance, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, combination pressure/slow cooker, food processor, and more! There is also a large charcoal BBQ. The dining table is comfortably sized to hold the fruits of the chef's labors, and it's higher than normal to provide superb views even while seated.

The living room also enjoys a great view, plenty of seating, and options for relaxing with the woodstove, TV or just a great book or conversation. Also on the main living level is a bathroom with shower, and laundry facilities. Upstairs are the two bedrooms flanking the second bathroom which features a deep stand-up Japanese-style soaking tub and a stall shower.

Cook Cottage is surrounded by wild natural beauty, and your sightings might include whales during their seasonal migrations, wild turkeys, deer, and many soaring and hunting birds like pelicans, ospreys, hawks and more.

The location of the house offers more than just great views --- it is located less than a mile from the center of Gualala for easy access to services and amenities, yet due to its bluff-top location on a quiet neighborhood cul-de-sac road, you'd never know the town was so close.

Gualala is a great base for day-trips to the friendly boutique wineries in Anderson Valley!

Please note the access to the entry from street level is by a series of terraced steps. There is no beach or bluff access from this rugged location. Due to the high-risk setting, this home is not suitable for children or dogs.
