Holiday Rental House
We now are open to host stays for July 1st and beyond! *Guest reserving home must be 25 years or older, be staying at the property the entire time and will be considered the responsible party for this booking. This is a primary residence that is not suitable for children 6 and under due to the pond, hot tub and some personal belongings including an extensive art & craft collection from world travels. Less than a mile from the Historic Village of Trinidad, this elegant home is on four acres and at the end of a private road. It is snuggled into a mature redwood forest with a third of a mile of well groomed trails. Raven Ridge Retreat is located up a hill protecting it from the fog and wind of other beach side properties; this is a peaceful, private experience where the beauty of nature...We now are open to host stays for July 1st and beyond! *Guest reserving home must be 25 years or older, be staying at the property the entire time and will be considered the responsible party for this booking. This is a primary residence that is not suitable for children 6 and under due to the pond, hot tub and some personal belongings including an extensive art & craft collection from world travels. Less than a mile from the Historic Village of Trinidad, this elegant home is on four acres and at the end of a private road. It is snuggled into a mature redwood forest with a third of a mile of well groomed trails. Raven Ridge Retreat is located up a hill protecting it from the fog and wind of other beach side properties; this is a peaceful, private experience where the beauty of nature satisfies your craving for tranquility. Four benches have been placed along the trails to relax and to enjoy the exceptional creek and forest views. Around the front yard there is plenty of sun exposure. Quiet, except for the occasional sound of seals in the distance, and songs of chickadees, winter wrens and Douglas squirrels; this is truly a retreat. This wood-sided home has an outside hot tub on a private deck adjacent to the upstairs bedroom. The spacious front patio has a fire pit for those who want to spend their evenings outdoors. There is a ping-pong table in the garage. For the lawn there are croquet and bocce ball. Inside, granite countertops and a cooktop stove are centrally located for gabbing with each other over cocktails. The wet bar is where those cocktails originate; the cabinets are all custom made. All the proper amenities are here, whether you are planning a lavish dinner or want casual dining on the patio. There is a king sized bed upstairs and a walk in shower with his and hers sinks and showers. A set of twin trundle (day) beds downstairs (can be made into a queen bed), and a fold-out couch/futon with a comfy mattress is in the upstairs loft. The living room offers a t.v. with basic cable. Sorry but the fireplace is off limits to guests but there is a great firepit outdoors! Outside, a garden path leads to the uniquely forested “Octacabana”, a cozy tree house like additional sleeping space. It is an 8 sided building, surrounded by nature, 50 feet away from the house with windows that open to the sound of the year-round creek and waterfalls. The Octacabana has a heater (no plumbing) and a Queen mattress—perfect for teenagers or couples who want to sleep in it. Guests must bring their own sleeping bags for bedding in the Octacabana please. If you need a break from hiking and exploring the beauty of the North Coast, you can stay inside. A large collection of music CD’s are here for your listening pleasure. There are many DVD and VCR movies, There are also some board games and a large selection of picture puzzles. The natural setting in the redwoods has been complimented with groomed native plants, cedars, and Japanese maples. Rhododendrons (50+ of them!) start blooming in March and go on and on through May. Two ponds full of goldfish, water lilies and a pump-powered waterfall between them are a perfect place to have lunch and a chance to glimpse a threatened species, the red-legged frog or Pacific giant salamander. The large lawn is perfect for bocce ball or croquet. The backyard is a lush shade garden, full of ferns, Japanese variegated grass and more rhododendrons and Japanese maples. From there, the forest drops off towards McConnahas Mill Creek. This is the home that you will long to return to year after year. Additional amenities: 1 day (24 hours), 30 min. to Redwood National Park, 5 minutes to downtown Trinidad, Clean with disinfectant, Enhanced cleaning practices, High touch surfaces cleaned with disinfectant, Large Back yard, No-contact check-in and check-out, Ping Pong Table, SafeHome (VRMA & VRHP), Towels and bedding washed in water that's at least 60sC/140sF, Wooded Views, not suitable for childrenMore
