What makes this house unique

My family, who are scattered across this continent, bought this property as a place to gather. Siblings and spouses enjoy being with each other while the kids play and enjoy 'Cousins Camp.' This has been the perfect place for our extended family to enjoy each other and for the cousins to truly know each other. We hope to keep this tradition going from generation to generation.

Our reason for offering our home as a vacation rental when we are not using it is to share the joy our family has when we gather here.

You will be in the beautiful redwoods -- a national treasure -- with many National and State forests nearby. Ranger led hikes are available, as well as the opportunity to enjoy hiking on your own. There are a number of fabulous trails of varying length. Take along a picnic lunch and make it a day. Bird watching is fantastic at Lake Earl, only 3 miles away. There is just about any activity you might hunger for except snow and cold. Crescent City remains cool all year round -- neither cold nor hot. You can enjoy the beautiful blue skies and many sunny days, as this property is in a sheltered area protected from the ocean wind and fog -- even though the ocean is only four miles away. Of course, there are a multitude of beaches up and down the coast. Many of these beaches have very specialized attractions. Sand dollars are prevalent on a different beach from the beach with ocean polished glass and different from the best beach for a bonfire and different from the beach with the best tide pools. Wow! You are a mere 10 minutes from Oregon or downtown Crescent City (20 minutes to Brookings, OR -- a fun day trip with another harbor and more beaches). If collecting shells, make sure to not collect anything alive, and remember all the other people and animals that want to share those shells.

Trees of Mystery -- an educational and beautiful hike through a privately owned redwood forest -- complete with a sky ride --is about 25 miles away. There are numerous lighthouses in the area. Crescent City (and Brookings) both have a number of wonderful restaurants. Nearby annual events include the Del Norte County Fair, Sea Cruise Car Show, Smith River Days, the July Kite Festival and many, many festivals celebrating everything from flowers to berries to fish to local artisans.

This home is the perfect place for a family looking for a house they can enjoy and relax in. There is a large play structure in the backyard, along with a creek, a small pond for the children and a tree house for the teenagers wanting their own hideaway. Plus a large deck with plenty of seating for moms, dads and grandparents to relax and watch the little ones enjoying themselves. A Weber gas barbecue and an outdoor space heater are also deck residents. Plenty of privacy on the entire property and yet the house is not so rural as to be isolated.

Just like home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The home is clean, very well equipped with anything you might need. We brought a lot of our own kitchen tools, pans etc since we were preparing Thanksgiving Dinner. We found out that it was totally unnecessary. All you need is your clothes and food. One of the things that I really loved was that there were little blankets and throws everywhere. It was easy to curl up and relax. The area is gorgeous. There is so much to do at the house and in the area. If we had a question Carole was responsive within minutes. We hope to be able to go back soon! Five stars all the way!!

Versatile living space

  • 4 of 5

Two families of 4 enjoyed this property. The home was well appointed and comfortable- Kitchen was extremely well appointed.

The owners live on site in a separate home and were extremely responsive to our questions and concerns.

Property is pet friendly and the owners have several dogs.

We do agree that the home should be left tidy, but as another review mentioned, were surprised to see the request for guests to vacuum, considering that a cleaning cost is already added to rental fee.

Overall, enjoyed the property and proximity to the beach and Stout Grove.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed the many amenities in our home. Our goal is to make our guests comfortable. We ask our guests to vacuum in order to make a first pass at getting the beach sand up. We then vacuum again, mop, clean and sanitize the entire house and tree house, and clean property. Thank you for staying with us, We hope you will vacation with us again.

The property was clean and already for our stay. The owners were friendly and very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The area is amazing and there was much information available to help us choose outings. The home had roomy bedrooms, a big kitchen, and two dining areas in the house. A big deck for barbecues had lots of seating and two big tables. The parking was sufficient and there was plenty of beautiful yard to enjoy with a big swing set for kids. A comfortable place to gather family or friends and enjoy the Oregon coast. We were not ready for our visit to be over.

Perfect home for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for getting together for a family reunion. The landscaping is beautiful, the deck is a great place for the adults to hang out and visit, and the swing set and tree house make the property magical for the kids. The kitchen has lots of space for cooking for a group. A beautiful area to make lasting memories.
