About Jean Johnston

This beautiful area was the inspiration for my artist/sculptor husband. It also was the perfect place to rear our 3 children.

My days almost always begin with a walk on our 2+ miles of uncrowded beach.

Now that our children are grown I have time to pursue my passion, going to gem shows and creating jewelry from my unique finds.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This home is set back from the highway and located on 3 acres surrounded by pasture land. Follow the paved driveway around to the back of the house and you will find a 1 car garage, a ramp to the back door for easy access and plenty of parking for your cars, boat or RV.

You will also find a secluded yard with a BBQ and comfortable chairs for relaxing.

Watch for deer, herds of elk and covies of quail. You can also enjoy a variety of colorful birds that come to the feeders. (Bird food provided.)

In late August the blackberry vines are hanging with juicy berries. They make delicious cobblers. Bring jars if you like to make jam.

Very cozy for a rainy Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Warm and cozy, this place was great for our Thanksgiving, close enough to all the sites and the ocean. We loved that we could just walk across the street. Very clean and stocked we didn't need to go to the store for those items that we forgot. The beds were made and very comfortable. Good job Jean

A bit funky, but roomy and clean

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 12 adults enjoyed the stay. We used air beds in the large upstairs room. Access to the ocean was wonderful and everyone enjoyed visits to the Redwood Parks. The house contained everything needed for cooking and playing. We could have used another bathroom but managed with the two bathrooms available. Thank you for providing an excellent place for our annual gathering.

Wonderful Family House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this old beach house! It was a convenient meet up location for our family to convene for a long weekend on the coast. You can walk across the street to the beach and watch the sunsets. The great room upstairs was a nice place for the adults to hang out after putting the kids to sleep. During our stay we took time to explore the areas attractions and hang out in the back yard, we really enjoyed the backyard and definitely made us of the BBQ. I would recommend bringing your own oil/butter (the oil we found was a bit old). Maybe also think about bringing some laundry detergent and or technu. There is poison oak in the area (not around the house, just on some of the hiking trails we explored). In any case, we had a good time and would rent here again if we were in the area.

Comfortable, relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

The home is not modern or fancy but it is certainly comfortable. We love the upstairs that has a great view of the ocean. The beds are quite comfortable. We had a problem with no Internet service but Jean graciously made up for it by giving us a gift certificate for dinner at the casino and I actually won money! The beach is close. Brookings is a fun little town. It was a little difficult to cook do to a lack of pans with matching lids. We managed though and used the bbq grill for a great steak dinner.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. The internet is being fixed as I write. I checked the kitchen and found lids to all the pans. They must have been hiding. I am reorganizing the kitchen for easier access.
