About the property

Cozy House In Large Private Meadow In The Woods; Minutes From Coastal Sand Dunes

Through a generation, this house has hosted family thanksgivings, romantic retreats, and writing sabbaticals. It's been home base for kids frolicking in the meadow and on the dunes, for peaceful walks, serene canoe trips, and rugged mountain bike adventures.

About the house:

Set in a private meadow surrounded by tall pines, featuring a large eat-in kitchen and timber-framed living room that is both spacious and cozy, the house feels as comfortable for an individual on a personal retreat, as it does for two families of 4 with young children.

Upstairs offers ample space to work or play, to kick back at the entertainment center, or to curl up and read a book in a window-seat. Downstairs you can relax in the living-room or kitchen and watch hummingbirds hover and the occasional deer wander through the meadow outside.

About the area:

A five minute walk on a private path will take you from the house to a secluded area of sand dunes (with no ATVs and plenty of space for children to play). Walk across the dunes (another 20 minutes) to a miles-long stretch of sandy coastline rarely visited by others.

A five minute drive brings you to the heart of the spectacular MacKerricher State Park, where you can hike the grassy headlands over dramatic cliffs; relax on the beach; watch birds on Lake Cleone; or take a stroll on the boardwalk past the tidepools to view seals sunbathing on rocks and whales migrating in the distance.

Just ten minutes south of the house is the town of Fort Bragg, with its many restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries, and more.

Scenic rivers, short walks and longer hikes, mountain biking, horseback-riding, and many magnificent beaches are all nearby.

Detailed Sleeping Arrangement Options:

The flexible room layout maximizes sleeping options. The first-floor bedroom has a queen bed and is across the hall from a bathroom with bathtub. The fireplace room on the first floor can also be used as a bedroom with a full-sized foam mat available.

Two large upstairs bedrooms share a common hall and bathroom (with tub and shower). One bedroom is split with a divider into a sleeping area with a full bed, and an entertainment area, which includes a love-seat and a futon that folds out to a full bed. The other bedroom has a bunk-bed as well as a day-bed with trundle.

Perfect size for our large group and a very peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house! It fit our group of 10 perfectly although a second shower would be a nice upgrade for large groups. The kitchen was great for cooking in. The walk through the forest is very peaceful. We did drive to Ward Ave to tide pool and hang on the beach. The walk through the dunes was to much for part of our group but some walked that way every day. We had a deer and a fox come to visit during our stay. Thank you for sharing your home.

Beautiful setting. Sand dunes are unbelievable!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice setting, very out of the way from the hustle and bustle! The sand dunes just 5 min walk are a unique, out of body experience. Be sure to take the directions and groceries as not much nearby. Kitchen worked well and games for kids appreciated. Good for families.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

Great place, piano is a plus! The 10 of us where very impressed with all the accommodations for all of us. The walk to the beach is breathtaking and the private beach is amazing.

I only recommend a second shower and a grill outside, rather then that... It’s defenetly a “The Place” to stay.
