Year Purchased: 1964
About the owner: The family has owned this cabin since 1964, we gave it a complete makeover in 2013.
Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio, CA, USA:
Jim Melville won at Keno in 1964. He bought this double lot on the river & built the cabin with the winnings. It was completely remodeled in 2013 to update it. We kept the fireplace & refinished as much mid-century furniture as we could to match the 'Groovy' butterfly roof. We all agree with Jim that this area is as peaceful & groovy as it gets
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Family fun has been happening here for more then 50 years. We sincerely hope it will continue for the next 500. Please email us with any questions about the cabin.
