    About this property

    Freshwater Lagoon Nature Retreat - Expansive Home on 11 Waterfront Acres

    Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
    Freshwater Lagoon Nature Retreat boasts sixteen private waterfront acres which sit at the entrée way to Redwood National and State Park just minutes from the tallest trees in the world. The giant floor to ceiling windows throughout the house allows you to gaze out at the beautiful natural setting of scenic 200 acre Freshwater Lagoon bordered by hills of evergreen trees, across which lies the beach and Pacific Ocean over which you will view beautiful sunsets. The single-story home has 3 bedrooms. The front room has one full and two twin beds. There is a middle room with one queen bed. The master bedroom is set apart from the rest of the house with a king-sized bed, full bath, romantic fireplace and its own large deck. There is a bonus TV room with two twin beds, too. This is a family friendly home and a toddler bed is provided and can be found in the master close, along with a pack and play. Crib available upon request. Owners dogs and cats occasionally visit property. The home does not have cable TV. Although there are 3 TVs in the house, two are smart TVs and guests can log in using their own log in information and the TV in the front room is for DVDs only. Some DVDs and Blu-ray player available. There is limited WIFI provided by a Hotspot, but it is not strong. Enjoy quiet solitude in the large living room and dining room area with unparalleled views while warming by the huge rock fireplace with wood stove insert using the wood provided. The dining table seats eight comfortably with room for more to squeeze in. Cook in the fully equipped kitchen while enjoying the same spectacular view. Enjoy morning coffee or serve the kids at the kitchen breakfast nook with seating for four. There is a ping pong table, fuse ball table and air hockey table in the game room in the garage as well as a tetherball pole and basketball hoop on the driveway. Board Games, cards and other fun indoor activities will bring the family together at night. Please respect no outside visitors permitted without pre-approval and subject to time of year and review. Along the front of the house is a big deck overlooking Freshwater Lagoon and the beaches with such revitalizing views! Watch Osprey and eagles soar overhead and fish in the lagoon. Ducks and geese use the lagoon to rest during migration. Bring your binoculars to scan for whales and boats or spy on wildlife. Bears and deer frequent the property. Dine at two outdoor patio tables with combine seating for twelve. BBQ on the large outdoor grill. The hiking all around you is truly world class - whether through the Redwoods National and State Park or along the beaches of the lagoons. Walk the five-mile trail from Dry Lagoon to Stone Lagoon searching for agates along the beach then back through the woods picking berries as you go. Wander through the giant redwoods of Lady Bird Johnson Grove or hike to Tall Trees where the tallest tree in the world lives. Walk famous Fern Canyon, wander around Patrick’s Point, horseback ride or bike into the park or drive the scenic route through the towering redwoods of Prairie Creek National Park on the way to the mighty Klamath River. For the water lovers, what a paradise! The lagoons offer great trout and bass fishing and small boating. You can rent kayaks and stand up paddle boards just around the corner at Stone Lagoon. Paddle across to the campsite, then hike to the beach. The beaches offer surf fishing, rock and beach treasure collecting, and surfing. You can charter boats from Trinidad and Eureka for pleasure cruising and fishing trips for Halibut, Salmon, and Rock Fish. The adventures are endless from this wonderful family house. There are so many things to do and places to visit within a half hour drive you will have to return again and again to fit them all in. Please note, Duck Hunting does occur on the lagoon from mid-October through January. No direct access to lagoon from property. Boat/kayak launch site just a short drive around the corner.

        Redwoods country stay

        Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The experience was great! Everything was as advertised and the location was spot on for redwoods visit. The owners were great. Tim came over with his grandaughter one night to show us their new puppy! Laurie gave the kids 3 eggs since they came up with the idea to make a cake but hadn't bought all the necessary ingredients. But she wouldn't take any payment for them! Sitting out on the porch overlooking the lagoon and ocean with a glass of wine watching the sun go down was wonderful. If I was to do another redwoods country visit, this is the place at which I'd stay.
