Aristotle's Retreat with WiFi Internet. 1/2 acre lot allows room to spread out a bit with privacy in the back yard, deck & wooded area. Walk 1/4 mile downhill to the Pacific! Incredible ocean view faces due West for sunset every night and ocean sounds to rock you to sleep. Perfect for personal rejuvenation or even board retreats. Lots of private sleeping space including: two full bedrooms w/full baths and good queen beds; additional beds set up in spare rooms nicely with comfy queen and living quarters; living room (doors close for privacy) has two very comfortable couch beds--futon and sofa; and cozy outbuilding has private bed w/desk, heater & view. Plenty of blankets, pillows and clean linen and towels. Gas heat in main house. Living/great room is 20' x 35' with attached full kitchen, vaulted ceilings with with huge dining table that easily seats 10 plus and an extra dining/meeting table that seats six. Five extra single mattresses stored in the garage for larger groups. Yoga/meditation platform below. It's also perfect as a solitary retreat or for a romantic getaway.
It's 1/4 mile walk downhill to the Ocean (and then back uphill) or drive 1 1/2 miles to trail heads at magnificent Shelter Cove--where the surfers gather--and Black Sands Beaches. There is ocean fishing and a free 9 hole golf-course. We're just minutes from the trailheads of the BLM managed King Range Conservation Area so you can do a day or multi-night hike in the heart of the legendary Lost Coast.
Fully equipped kitchen with all appliances, plates, glasses, utensils, pots, pans, coffee machine, 4-slice toaster, toaster over, blender, microwave, etc. We provide coffee, sugar, herbs/spices, shampoo, soap & toilet paper. Cul de sac privacy so there's no traffic whizzing by. We have no TV/Cable reception; however, you can watch one of the hundred in-house VHS's or DVD's on our four TVs in the bedrooms and the living room.
Cell phone reception is OK (we use it all the time) and is better toward ocean, which we are near. However, it works well only for some carriers. Carriers that may not be serviced in the house include AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. This is where you forget it all.
Dining out includes The Cove Restaurant for fine seafood, steak and vegetarian cuisine, Delgados Pizza for take out, and Marinos Bar if that's your pleasure. Daytime fair at the Deli for Fish and Chips and Fishtank Coffee house for breakfast and lunch. There is an incredibly stocked and reasonably priced General Store two miles uphill.
