Why Beth chose Sonoma County

Why 'Aftermath?' In 1955, our grandparents, math teachers from Concord, California, bought this fisherman’s cabin to spend summers away from the East Bay heat. Over the years, next generations have expanded and improved it, while maintaining its charm. In honor of our grandparents, we call it 'Aftermath.'

stunning views, cozy place

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Aftermath.

The views from the living room and dining room are absolutely incredible.

We also loved the hot tub, location (between Jenner & Bodega Bay on a cute stretch of homes and easy access to the beach). It was also great to bring our dog along (Thanks Beth!).

We'd definitely come back.

A wonderful place to unwind, disconnect and relax

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay. The beach is not for kids as its one of the most dangerous on the CA coast so I'd keep with adults. The view is incredible. Stop off in Petaluma to fill up the fridge and you won't want to leave. Loved driving up the coast to Salt Point for hiking. Still close enough for wine tasting. You won't be disappointed.

All we had hoped for !

  • 4 of 5

We could not have felt more comfortable and cozy. With a bit of typical March weather the warmth of "Aftermath" was even more apparent. And what a view ! The cabin was well equipped and easy to be at home in. We've been coming to this part of the California coast for over forty years and it has become a little bit more special now. We'll be back !

Another Wonderful Stay at Aftermath

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Aftermath for 3 nights in January. This is the 3rd consecutive year for us. We love this house and location. It is my wife's happy place. The setting above the beach can't be beat as well as the closer walking distance. The house itself is cozy and inviting. If is fully stocked and the views are wonderful. It has two large bedrooms and bathrooms, a beautiful fireplace and comfortable furniture. It is quiet and away from the highway in a very cool area. The setting can't be beat. You are a short drive from may recreational activities as well as fine restaurants. Having said that the kitchen applianced are top shelf and we mostly eat at the house.

I can't recommend any more highly and we are already discussing our next visit to Aftermath.

Beth is also wonderful to work with.
