Blufftop Cottage With 180-Degree Whitewater Views in Gualala

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,672 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with large view deck and whitewater views from every room

Located on the edge of the bluff in Gualala, Cook Cottage is perfectly suited for a romantic retreat or a fun getaway for up to 4 adults. The views are fantastic from everywhere in the house, even the bathrooms! Furnishings include ample seating both indoors and out on the view deck; great electronics including flat screen TVs with Blu-ray players in living room and both bedrooms (cable in living room and one bedroom), iPod docking music tower in living area, and docking alarm clocks in bedrooms; high end Aireloom mattresses on the two king beds; and wifi throughout.

The thoughtful provisions extend to the very well equipped kitchen with fun accessories for those meals you never have the time for at home for instance, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, combination pressure/slow cooker, food processor, and more! There is also a large charcoal BBQ. The dining table is comfortably sized to hold the fruits of the chef's labors, and it's higher than normal to provide superb views even while seated.

The living room also enjoys a great view, plenty of seating, and options for relaxing with the woodstove, TV or just a great book or conversation. Also on the main living level is a bathroom with shower, and laundry facilities. Upstairs are the two bedrooms flanking the second bathroom which features a deep stand-up Japanese-style soaking tub and a stall shower.

Cook Cottage is surrounded by wild natural beauty, and your sightings might include whales during their seasonal migrations, wild turkeys, deer, and many soaring and hunting birds like pelicans, ospreys, hawks and more.

The location of the house offers more than just great views --- it is located less than a mile from the center of Gualala for easy access to services and amenities, yet due to its bluff-top location on a quiet neighborhood cul-de-sac road, you'd never know the town was so close.

Gualala is a great base for day-trips to the friendly boutique wineries in Anderson Valley!

Please note the access to the entry from street level is by a series of terraced steps. There is no beach or bluff access from this rugged location. Due to the high-risk setting, this home is not suitable for children or dogs.

Beautiful views, great house, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I could not ask for any better area and house to relax and enjoy the ocean!!! We were close to Mendaciano, the Point Arena Light House and other great coast spots. The house has a perfect view of the ocean and if you open the windows the sound of the waves is so soothing. The cool nights made for very good sleeping. We were there on a full moon week and felt like the you touch the moon it was so big and clear. The 7+ deer in the yard were also fun to watch. Overall had a wonderful time and would recommend Cook house to anyone wanting to just enjoy the beauty of the ocean and area.

Enjoyable vacation house. Great for a small family or two couples. Good amenities at the house (wood stove, kitchen stocked with everything you need, comfortable furniture, good TV and internet).

Right on the water, and you can sit on the deck and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing. Would recommend to friends and family!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a private romantic getaway for our anniversary. We certainly found it at the Blufftop Cottage! This was our first trip to Northern California and we fell upon Gualala while searching for a place to stay and took a chance. We were so glad we did! The cottage was perfect.

Everything was clean and new and very well appointed. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the views spectacular! We wanted a cozy place that was right on the ocean and we found it. The deck off the back couldn't have been any closer. Sitting outside watching the sunset each evening with the waves crashing below was more than we could ask for! The agency was very friendly, easy to work with and very accommodating. It was nice that they were right downtown Gualala which was an easy walk from the cottage. We enjoyed hiking the bluffs, combing the beaches and finding places to stop and eat from Sea Ranch, just south of Gualala, north up to Point Arena Lighthouse!

We have already given this information to family and friends. We would definitely come back!
