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.

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!!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The home is in good condition with every kitchen utensil you would need and a nice Weber grill outside. Three bedrooms inside and the tree house is considered the fourth. The tree house does have a bathroom but is a little musty and has only single beds. Cool for older kids and adults to stay in. All the games and toys you would want for your kids plus the play structure is really nice. Know that the owner keeps the garage locked up. Carole was very responsive and helpful. 4.5 stars!

Great spot for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a wonderful place for our family to get together. My wife and I, along with some other family members live up in Portland, OR while my in-laws and some other siblings live in Napa, CA. This was a great middle place. It had enough room for our whole family: 3 married couples, 1 single adult, 2 teenage boys, and 3 little kids (ages 5, 4, 2). The house is well-stocked with cooking and sleeping supplies, as well as toys, games, and movies for the family to hang out together. We will definitely be returning.

Great place to share with family

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place to stay. We had family from three states meet at this location and stay for a few days. The place was better than we expected. However, when we got there - one of the bedrooms had a hole in the ceiling due to the recent rain in the area. We called the number available and they had someone out to fix the problem immediately. The Bar-B-Que is in definite need of being replaced, but we did get it to work. Overall, we really liked this place - the kids had room to run and they loved the swing set and tree house. Definitely on our list of places to stay again.

great location to enjoy all the north coast of Ca. has to offer.

  • 4 of 5

The house was roomy and comfortable, and the yard was a big hit with our kids. The kitchen was a great space for preparing meals, and meeting place before going outdoors. I took off one star because as stated in other reviews, the temp, of the house was a little on the cool side at night, our 22 month woke up several times because he was cold, but the wood stove helped with that problem. We would love to come back again, and enjoy this great place to experience the all of the sites of the north coast of ca.

Owner's Response: I am beginning to think that people who have not lived in a damp climate do not realize how much the increased humidity makes it feel colder than the actual temperature as well as hotter. I will address that issue. However, raising the heat from what you requested was only a phone call away. We hope you will vacation with us again.

Just as advertised

  • 4 of 5

This house worked out perfect for our group of nine. It is set up so well for large groups! The property is even better than expected. I would love to return when it is warmer so we could spend time out on the wonderful deck, but it still was great. I recommend this home and hope to be able to visit again some time.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed our home. We hope you can stay longer next time. The summer and fall are gorgeous times of the year, as is most of the spring. But sometimes mother nature has an agenda of her own no matter where you are.

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.
