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.

Very spacious, great for big families, reunions, or lots of friends getting together

  • 4 of 5

This house is big!!! It has a beautiful front and back yard, and if you have kids old enough to sleep in the tree house, they will love it! Lots of beds and mattresses to sleep on, lots of living and entertaining areas, and a big well-stocked kitchen. It's a little inland, but you can take the 101 to get pretty much anywhere and it's a gorgeous drive as you are surrounded by walls of trees on both sides. The house has a bit of a musky odor to it; however, we enjoyed how quiet it is and our stay there.

Very nice and felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay here. We had planned for more family to be with us but it was just three adults and two children who ended up going. This home was able to sleep so many more people and the tree house was really a bonus for our grandkids. The location was good being away from busy streets and in the trees yet close enough to town to run for groceries when needed. We chose this area to enjoy the redwoods and we weren't disappointed. We also spent a day exploring the shore and it was beautiful. The home was clean and well stocked. We recommend this home especially for a large family or group that can take full advantage of all it has to offer. And Carole is such a great lady!

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having you and your family stay in our home. It is sad that everyone could not join you. But, remember, there is always next year and we would be delighted to have all of you return as our guests.

Wonderful weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

Came over with a group of girls for the weekend. Had a wonderful time. The house was great. Full of games and things to do. Close to several beaches. We spent the day in Brookings about 25 min drive north on i101. Would love to stay here again anytime.

Like coming home

  • 4 of 5

Our family uses HomeAway & VRBO numerous times a year. Home is clean, well stocked & great location. Owners great in communication and availability. Lots of movies, dvd/vcr combo, books & games. The only thing we had an issue with was the thermostat was locked but we didn't call to fix it; I'm sure they would've taken care of it if we asked. Otherwise great stay

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay, We wish you had asked to have the thermostat adjusted. It would have been easy to have accommodated any requests you had regarding the temperature. We would welcome you back for your next trip to the area.

The tree house was perfect for the teens to stay in. Beautiful yard and very spacious house. This place is perfect for a family get together. We were welcomed with a plate of cookies when we arrived.

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.
