Freshwater Lagoon Nature Retreat boasts sixteen private waterfront acres which sit at the entrée way to Redwood National and State Park just minutes from the tallest trees in the world. The giant floor to ceiling windows throughout the house allow you to gaze out at the beautiful natural setting of scenic 200 acre Freshwater Lagoon bordered by hills of evergreen trees, across which lies the beach and Pacific Ocean over which you will view beautiful sunsets. The single story home has 3 bedrooms and a bonus room with TV and two twin beds. The two bedrooms share a hallway to a full bathroom with classic pink tile. The master bedroom is set apart from the rest of the house with a king sized bed, full bath, romantic fireplace and its own large deck. Owners dogs and cats ocassionally visit property. We do have wifi, but it is not great because it is satellite. Very family friendly home, and crib available on request.
Enjoy quiet solitude in the large living room and dining room area with unparalleled views while warming by the huge rock fireplace with wood stove insert using the wood provided. The dining table seats eight comfortably with room for more to squeeze in. Cook in the fully equipped kitchen while enjoying the same spectacular view.

There is a ping pong table, fuse ball table and air hockey table in the game room in the garage as well as a tetherball pole and basketball hoop on the driveway. Board Games, cards and other fun indoor activities will bring the family together at night.
Along the front of the house is a big deck overlooking Freshwater Lagoon and the beaches with such revitalizing views! Watch Osprey and eagles soar overhead and fish in the lagoon. Ducks and geese use the lagoon to rest during migration. Bring your binoculars to scan for whales and boats or spy on wild life. Bears and deer frequent the property.

The hiking all around you is truly world class - whether through the Redwoods National and State Park or along the beaches of the lagoons. Walk the five mile trail from Dry Lagoon to Stone Lagoon searching for agates along the beach then back through the woods picking berries as you go. Wander through the giant redwoods of Lady Bird Johnson Grove or hike to Tall Trees where the tallest tree in the world lives. Walk famous Fern Canyon, wander around Patrick’s Point, horseback ride or bike into the park or drive the scenic route through the towering redwoods of Prairie Creek National Park on the way to the mighty Klamath River.
