Property description

We work very hard to make The Cottage at Where Water Falls a magical oasis just for you. After all, this mid-century cottage was built by my grandfather!

When you open the gate you'll discover an AMAZING private backyard. You'll hear a waterfall splashing next to a hot tub that's awaiting you & your favorite beverage. You'll feel the warmth of a fire pit (that uses real wood) to snuggle up & roast a s'more or two or three... Take a midday snooze on the hammock tucked in a small grove of redwoods. Rekindle that child within with a game of Ping-Pong or horseshoes.

Wanna come inside?

The interior is decorated in a fun yet relaxed retro style. The living room has a 'kick back & relax' feel with original wood walls, a wood burning stove, Foosball, lots of games & books to keep you entertained and of course many personalized touches throughout.

The updated kitchen is fully loaded - just bring the food!

Slip into the king size bed in the master bedroom and... RELAX. The bedroom has views of the redwoods & its own private bathroom. The second bedroom has a king size bed & decorated in a lighthearted style with original artwork & views of our garden. A second full bathroom is just down the hall.

There are twin roll-away beds (that can be rolled outside for the more adventurous!) to accommodate two more people.

The deck overlooks 70-year-old apple trees (that were planted by my great grandmother!) & the iconic redwoods. You'll hear chickens crowing in the distance and even an occasional wild turkey! I guarantee if you sit in our rocking chairs with your favorite beverage, you'll notice your worries melt away...

Whether it’s outdoor solitude that you desire or a little good old fashioned fun – you are sure to find it at The Cottage. Give yourself a reboot in our neck of the woods!

Other Amenities Include: gas BBQ, wood for fire pit & wood stove, cable TV, free Wi-Fi Internet, free local & long distance telephone, CD/DVD player, iPod cable to sound system, washing machine & dryer, parking off the street and of course the mountain views!

Owner info

About the owner: I grew up in Loma Mar and graduated from Pescadero High with 16 in my class! I'm a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and worked as an actor for almost 6 years in Los Angeles. But I started to experience withdrawals from not being around the redwoods and had to come back ;-) I currently work in health care with the elder population and run The Cottage with my parents!

Why the Owner Chose Loma Mar, CA, USA:
The Cottage was built by my grandfather in 1946. The home was a weekend getaway for my grandparents. My family goes back many generations in the Loma Mar area. Come see why Loma Mar is a very special The Cottage!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There aren’t too many places left wherein less than an hour’s drive from the city, you are embraced by massive redwood trees, birds, banana slugs, running water and the stars in the night sky. In a time where it’s becoming more and more difficult to keep up with our busy lives, The Cottage offers a much needed retreat to de-stress and rejuvenate your soul - all surrounded by the pace of nature. Our wish is that guests will experience the tranquility and uniqueness The Cottage and Loma Mar has to give.
