March 2010: We came with friends for the weekend…..a couples retreat, & enjoyed a wonderful time. Great house….remote and comfortable….with amazing views of the ocean. Quite an adventure for us as we drove up the driveway, rounding each turn, waiting for the hosue to appear. What an awesome location!
We hope to come back & stay again; that way we can walk again along Irish Beach, bike in Ft. Bragg, collect colored glass & shells at glass beach, and rest & relax away from the hustle and bustle of life. Thanks you for your hospitality.
