This place was nothing short of wonderful. House and grounds beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

My experience has been that pictures are much nicer than the property. Quite the opposite was true here. House and grounds were lovely. Beds comfortable. Stayed here with my daughter and family. Kids enjoyed the chickens. We all enjoyed the hot tub. Couldn't believe the quality for the price we paid. The location made it easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. If this property is it.

What a wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, beautiful. A couple minor complaints. The wifi is very weak and the groundskeeper was running power equipment outside the house during the whole weekend. I understand he only comes a couple times a month. The grounds were great. Chickens, ducks and koi. Huge gardens. Will be back.

Great comfortable base for exploring the North Coast

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Melanie were very welcoming. The house has every amenity. Lots of room. The kids (10 & 12) entertained themselves for hours in the gardens with the chickens, ducks, koi and hot tub! You could easily spend tranquil days relaxing around the house and on the deck, but it is also a great central location to explore the region. Beach Combing on Agate Beach, Exploring Fern Canyon, Tide Pooling at Palmer's Point, cruising on the Madaket, rare animals at the Sequoia Park Zoo, artisan tools at The Blue Ox, Kayaking around Stone Lagoon, bird watching at Arcata Marsh, Food and Victorian splendor in Ferndale (you are also staying in Victorian Splendor) and of course, the TREES. Highly recommended.
