About Dennis and Becky Wood
We have lived in the Crescent City area for 30 years, and own All Creatures Animal Hospital & Bird Clinic. We have raised 6 wonderful children here and believe this to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. We lead a very busy life filled with faith, family, work, and community involvement, and understand the need for peace and total relaxation to renew the soul.
Dennis and Becky Wood purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2009
Why Dennis and Becky Wood chose Crescent City
The Lakefront Ranch is a property we have admired in our daily drive from Fort Dick to Crescent City for 30 years. Our daughter-in-law and her mom use to pull into the ranch driveway just to sit and watch the sunsets for many years. The property is a working ranch with a huge barn, improved pastures, and corrals. We raise sheep and a few head of angus cattle. The chickens in the barn provide daily fresh eggs. The pond is reported to harbor prize cutthroat trout and lots of waterfowl and wildlife. When we purchased the property the house was gutted and at the beginning of a complete remodel. We saw tremendous possibilities, and jumped at the chance. The result is astounding, and will be beyond your expectations; comfortable, elegant and totally relaxing.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
As you turn off Lower Lake Road onto the alder lined 1/4 mile drive, you will breath a sigh of relaxation. If it's dusk, you will race to get the best sunset view. At other times you drive slowly, and talk to the sheep and cows grazing nearby. Entering the home you are greeted with modern, comfortable elegance. The living room has 2 unique focal points. At one end is a see-through fireplace with gorgeous 'country rubble' stone work. The other end is a 9' X 4' redwood log chain saw carving of 'the Last Supper'. The master suite is spacious, with a 52' HD TV, wood and gas fireplace, and huge master bath with jetted tub and 2 headed marble shower with stone floor. The detached studio has it's own bath and kitchenette.

We had such a great time! Dennis and Becky were wonderful host. I couldn’t imagine having a better place to have my wedding.
This was the perfect place to relax and visit with friends. The expansive property provided scenic views and the sunsets over the lake were breathtaking. There were plenty of comfortable beds with plenty of extra linens and everyone had fun in the hot tub. We played ping pong and had memorable nights by the fire pit. It was a great place to make some memories.
Perfect family getaway!
This property is glorious! From collecting fresh eggs for breakfast to adventure walks which include untouched natural ponds full of water lilies, sheep in the fields and donkeys that loved to sing for us and don't forget an abundance of adorable tree frogs for the kids to enjoy. The sunsets are mesmerizing and all of a sudden this city family feels connected with nature.
Thank you for sharing this piece of heaven with us!
Perfect Wedding location
We could not have found a more perfect location for our wedding. Having enough space for both immediate families to stay at the venue was a huge deciding factor. The property has its own natural beauty and whimsy, which meant we didn't need to spend any of our budget on decorations. The property owners were readily available to us throughout our stay, which came in handy when we realized we were short a table for the reception. Every wedding guest was flabbergasted that there was such a property in Del Norte county. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!
Fantastic as always!!
The most amazing wedding venue.
Dennis and Becky are so sweet and exceed all expectations to make your stay whatever you like it to be. I had my wedding there and it was so beautiful. Plenty of space to accommodate a lot of people. On the other hand, if your looking for a quiet peaceful getaway you won't find better. Breathtaking views and serene feeling the moment you step on the property. I give this home 5 stars for everything. If you stay, you won't be disappointed.
