About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Only the Battery Point Beach House vacation rental offers a spectacular view of the Lighthouse and such easy access to beach combing. You can walk all the way down and on out to the lighthouse (at low tide). This 3 bedroom house is the perfect vacation rental for couples and family vacation. It is the only house on the ocean side of a cul-de-sac and despite being within city limits, offers a definite feeling of privacy.

The Battery Point Lighthouse dominates the landscape and is the primary view from the living room and deck. Walking or beachcombing on 'Pebble Beach' is a few steps from your doorstep of the Battery Point Beach House. Only minutes away are the famous California Redwoods.

Your pacific panorama will unfold from the Deck, or from the privacy of the open, cedar paneled living room, kitchen and dining areas. Sunset Magazine rated Battery Point the number one lighthouse beach (The West's 40 Best Beaches, July 1997). Enjoy a short walk down the beach and on out to the lighthouse (at low tide) to take in sensational vistas and museum (in season).

Car: Recommended

Jedidiah Smith Redwood Park very close to this Northernmost City in California. Nearby Smith River is the only remaining undammed Wild and Scenic River in CA. Trails and Sightseeing abound with relatively milder climate than other cities along the North Coast.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: I first came to the area in the 1960s to fly fish for salmon in the Smith River and fell in love with the view from the deck and the closeness to the Ocean, Smith River and the Redwoods. I bought the home without ever getting inside,; watched a sunset from the deck and made the offer! I live and do business in Santa Barbara, CA so this vacation home is a day and a half drive for me.

Why the Owner Chose Crescent City, CA, USA:
Best view in the County and right on the water! The setting is wonderful and the house is best described as cozy. The area is not Disneyland but there is plenty to see and do in nature. The Smith River, only remaining undammed, Wild and Scenic River in the state, is a short drive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The town is a convenient few blocks but the home is on a point so you see no other residences from the Living Room, a definite sense of privacy. Everyone agrees how cozy and comfortable it is; decorated for enjoyment, not for show. The Jed Smith Redwood Park is just minutes away by car and they trees are all along the road coming in. The Klamath River is 20 miles south and Fern Canyon is a must see.
