Skyhouse is a very special place for a retreat.
SkyHouse is known locally as "The Crown Jewel". When the original owners of this ranch became elderly they gradually sold off lots for custom homes. They saved this property, believing one of their girls would build a home on the property. Therefore the street are named after their girls Carol, Nina, Elsie Mae and Daisy. All of the girls married men from out of town and moved away.
The views from your decks are like no other. Red tail hawks soar and hunt in the updraft in front of the property. Deer, raccoons, possum, hummingbirds and owls all pass through.
Relax at this mountain resort setting. Hike or ride your mountain bike or road bike right from the front door onto the fire trails or on the street to Big Basin State Park.
