Enjoy our spacious home with dramatic views surrounded by redwood and madrone forest. Although we are not remote, you feel solitude, as no other buildings are visible from the property. Serene and private, the two-storey house sleeps 6 comfortably. On the second floor a master bedroom has a queen-size bed antique furniture, and museum-quality paintings, while a cozy bedroom has a double bed with a romantic south-facing balcony for stargazing or greeting the day. A full bath, with bidet is adjacent. Downstairs a double futon-couch can accommodate two in the large living room. A wood-burning stove affords visible cheer and extra warmth. The home is filled with stunning, original art. Ethnic fabrics on upholstery, pillows and spreads add more artistic touches, but the home is kid-friendly, with extra folding futons and air mattress.
A full kitchen with gas stove, large fridge, ample dinnerware and cooking utensils, is next to a pantry that can serve as a mud room, with a half-bath nearby. The orchard and garden are visible from all the rooms with spectacular views of valley and mountains beyond. A gas-fired grill is just outside the kitchen for cooking local salmon, veggies and meat. Look for herbs—rosemary, thyme, oregano and, in season, parsley—in the garden beds and barrels.
The house is equipped with internet and speakers for your i-pod or other device for music. There is a library with a variety of books, binoculars and many field guides for identifying constellations, flora and fauna.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy solitude and respect your privacy,so interact very little, or not at all, with our guests. A caretaker is on-call if necessary.
We are 5 minutes from the Navarro Store and a magical old growth forest on the Navarro River. The coast is less than 30 minutes away with Anderson Valley’s acclaimed wineries, micro-brewery and gourmet restaurants all within thirty minutes’ drive. Hendy woods with more old growth redwoods, meadows and hiking is a short drive away. Deer and wild turkeys may wander across the front lawn, or you may see a fox. One Christmas we spotted river otters cavorting on the Navarro!
Anderson Valley has limited public transportation. You will need a vehicle to enjoy the area; bikes are encouraged.

There is a good public radio station and an amusing weekly newspaper. Check out KZYX (90.7 FM) and The Anderson Valley Advertiser (available in local markets). These media outlets give a good sense of the eclectic community. There is a farmers' market on Saturdays during much of the year.
We expect our guests to leave the home as they found it. This is a pet-free accommodation, and smoking is not allowed in the house. Some mobile phone carriers, such as Verizon and Sprint, work well, ATT is spotty. Please close garden gates, as deer are voracious wanderers on the property.
