Super comfy room with view/access to 80 acres of private valley and woodlands, 1 mile from ocean, an easy walk along a country road bounded by old fences and pastures. "Double" (not queen) bed; private, not adjacent, bathroom. (Great shower pressure & lots of hot water.) Full fresh, local, cooked-from-scratch dinner and breakfast. (Read reviews.) Quiet, dark nights. Peaceful, happy, serene. Town has live theatre & music events, unique shopping, historic cemetery, redwood hiking park.
Larger-than-you expect room with big office desk, WiFi, good lighting both at desk and for reading in bed. View of wooded hillsides, rose garden, pastures. You will hear ocean roar and birds sing. No close neighbors. Walk up ridge, to the beach or explore 80 acres of our wilderness park (not a working farm). Delicious food. You'll eat well and sleep well. Spring water, rocking chairs, many places to curl up with a book. Yes, you can use our laundry. Victorian village 4 miles east. Country farmhouse, informal, cozy, not much changed in 70 years.
Disponible para huéspedes
Families: we offer a second full guest suite in a family package (includes dinners), making our downstairs available to parties of 4 adults/3 children or 5 adults. See listing for Farmhouse, 2 meals, 4 years, 5 stars. Downstairs access of 2 private bedrooms, 2 private bathrooms, 2 full meals=$170/night. No minimum stay. We send special offer when request is made for both rooms. One room has toddler bed; suite has tv room where we often put up a cot/sleeping bag. Suite bedroom large enough for portacrib. Guests have full access to living and dining room and laundry, as well as the rest of the acreage on the forested property. This is a "family stay." We live in this house (our private rooms are upstairs). We have jobs, both around the house and in town. We consider you our house guests, like family-without-the-baggage. Everyone comes and goes, and we get together for an hour or so at mealtime, share a bottle of wine, eat good food, visit, and retire. There are two Airbnb rooms, so guests will meet "the people in the other room" as well as us. Sometimes, we invite friends from town to join us because we have a lot of food or there's something lively going on.
Atención a los huéspedes
We eat our hearty breakfast (homemade bread, fruit, eggs many styles, cheese, sausages, vegetable/rice dishes, etc.) with our guests. Our private quarters are upstairs, but we're on premises (altho we both have work outside the home), as is our 18-year-old dog, Frank. We do everything possible to make your visit comfortable and happy.
Otros aspectos destacables
We have good central heating, but there are occasional drafts. Locals drop by unexpectedly with fresh fish or honey or crab or other bounty, and stay for dinner. Dogs want to go out in the middle of the night. Coyotes howl. A bobcat shows up or -- once -- a bear. Deer graze in the pasture. In fog or smoke Wifi can get dicey. We are on 80 mostly wooded acres, some good hikes nearby. Nearly deserted, driftwood-filled, wild edge-of-the-earth beach one mile away.
No smoking or vaping in the house. No third-party bookings (the person who is the guest has to be the person who books the room, not, for example, a friend with an Airbnb account). A small dog with his/her own sleeping "cabana" is okay in this room.
These wooded 80 acres have been in the family for nearly 70 years. I grew up here, spent 35 adult working years in Los Angeles and New York, and returned to Humboldt County in 1993, when I inherited the farm. I work as a documentary filmmaker, editor, and writer; John, who spent 25 years designing computer communications systems, is a handyman (both at home and for others). We currently have two sweet dogs--an aging Australian shepherd named Frank; and Tickie, an adult Corgi-mix. If the bobcat and bald eagles and red-tailed hawks don't visit for a while, we also keep chickens (currently 0, alas). We are both enthusiastic cooks, and there is usually fresh bread and lots of veggies. We "do" Airbnb family style: our guests are considered just that, houseguests, members of our "fictive" family, if only for a few hours.
