About the Property
4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-14)
There is room enough to comfortably sleep 16 but we have accommodated as many as 20 people. The main kitchen seats 6 in the breakfast nook, the second kitchen seats 3 and the dining table in the main room seats 10. We keep extra chairs handy as well. The house is surrounded by forest and has a large deck with ample seating and two grills, two balconies, a pool table, piano, hardwood floors in every room, woodland views from every window, gardens, a variety of fruit trees, and chickens out back. Radiant heating warms the whole house and is especially nice in the bathrooms and kitchen. Very cozy on chill winter mornings.
There are 2 bedrooms, 2 suites, and the TV room may also be used as a private bedroom with closing doors and a fold-out couch. The entertainment room has a fold-out couch and the two suites each have a fold-out couch and space enough for an air bed, which we have plenty of. That totals 4 beds, 4 fold-out couches and space for 2 (or more) comfortable air beds, all of which are Queen.
We clean all contact surfaces in the house including all counter tops, table tops, door knobs, cabinet and drawer knobs, railings, chairs, table tops, window sills and any spider webs we find inside or outside. We wash all linens including towels, sheets, pillow cases, the bedspreads and table cloths. We clean the bathrooms and all floors. We also put all decorative pillows through the dryer on high.

Ruby Throated Hummingbirds can be seen in the backyard and from the kitchen window as they dart about the Chinese Lantern flowers.
Two osprey nests also can be seen from the kitchen, the deck, and the master bedroom. It is a treat to hear their cries as they circle on the thermals gaining altitude to then glide off to catch a meal. When they return sometimes they are harassed by crows or vultures or both as these thieves try to rob the ospreys of their catch. We have seen battles between the osprey pairs and groups of vultures. Each year several chicks hatch in each nest. The ospreys take turns guarding them. As one guards the other one defends against the vultures diving toward the nest.
I designed and engineered this home, incorporating chandeliers, molding, and antique glass and doors from estate auctions. I did most of the stonework around the house, handpicking about 120 yards of stone from the quarry at Sears Point. We hope you enjoy the home we have built- we're here to ensure your stay is everything you hoped it would be and more.
If you are considering an event such as a family get together, a celebration, or a seminar we can accommodate you. Long term stays may also be accommodated. Please contact us for pricing arrangements.
If you have children please inquire.
