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.

Great clean and cozy place for relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home was awesome! We had a group of 12, two families with four kids, and we fit very comfortably. The house was clean. The beds were very comfortable. There were movies, games, puzzles, and plenty of toys to keep my little kids entertained. The kids LOVED sleeping in the treehouse. I love the backyard. It is so incredibly beautiful and well maintained. We spent our days out exploring the beach and nearby trails but made just about all of our food back at the house. The kitchen was well stocked with all the supplies needed to cook. We used the grill a few times. Overall this was definitely one of our favorite vacations. If we ever head back this direction, we would for sure stay here again.

Loved this Special Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren (total of 12 people, including 3 little boys!) at this lovely home for 5 nights in July! From the moment we arrived at this residence, we were thrilled. The front yard is so beautiful! The backyard was magnificent, with such an awesome deck, complete with lots of tables and chairs. From the moment we walked through the door of the home, we felt right at home. Delicious cookies and a beautiful vase of daisies were on the kitchen table welcoming us. The tree house was a dream come true for the little kids and for some of our not so little kids. The house is filled with absolutely everything that you could ever want---and then some!! Our boys loved the tub of cars and toys! We enjoyed all the games! Movies galore! This home was so comfortable and we were totally content to just stay on this property and be together! (We did manage to venture out to enjoy the majestic Redwoods and the amazing beach, which are close by.) We loved the deck and played many games while watching the kids enjoy the terrific play structure. The owners are delightful and were a joy to work with. All 12 of us highly recommend this gorgeous property! We all agree that we will plan another stay in the future!

Very quiet location with great yard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days at the terrific home. Or kids loved sleeping in the tree house out back. It was close to many sites wanted to see in the Redwoods and had great beaches near by. We would highly recommend it!

Better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Carole when we arrived and she gave us a quick tour of the property and amenities. She left a plate of cookies on the table. The home was clean, well maintained and the general feeling was comfortable and like being at home. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need including spices. There were many books, games, videos, toys for all ages. Our grand-kids especially enjoyed sleeping in the tree house. The yard with deck, grill, tables, etc. was wonderful and peaceful. Landscaping was beautiful. Location couldn't have been better for all of our activities, including beaches, Crescent City attractions, and the redwoods. We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend this property. Thanks Carole for making our stay perfect!!

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.
