A roadside attraction without the distraction. A car goes by, a bicyclist or walker passes, swallows dip and dart. This circa 1890s former blacksmith shop is twenty feet to the peaceful Pacific Coast Highway, and a quick walk to a secluded beach. Westport boomed in 1878 and was the largest town north of San Francisco, but truth be told, not much happens here any more. Open and airy and cozy and happy, packed with strange and varied art work. Enjoy cooking and napping, reading or staring, and the endless changing Pacific off the deck. Writers, escapists, and creative types will appreciate the solitude of the detached artist studio. One bedroom is cozy and dark, the other bright, with a view to the ocean and a loaded bookshelf. The kitchen has a 4 burner gas range/oven and coffee maker. The living area has a long table for a gourmet spread or a project. Bath with shower, washer and dryer, and the Lost Coast's largest collection of those plaster fish. Watch a DVD or listen to music. Play a game. Be inspired. Soak in the hot tub or just sit on the porch in comfortable adarondack chairs. Outside you will find a 100 square foot artist studio with another large deck. There is a writing desk inside and a stereo system for ipod/computer hookup with two indoor speakers. Great space to do some morning yoga or painting. There is also a very comfortable oversized chair that converts to a twin size sleeper bed. Extra sheets/blankets are next to the sofa sleeper. You will also find a charcoal grill outside. There sandy beaches just a block away and down the bluffs to stairs. All the nearby beaches are dog friendly too and pets are welcome in my home. Buy local! The Westport General store sells beer and staples and makes great organic sandwiches and pizzas to order. The Westport Hotel and Old Abalone Pub serves dinners on the weekends. Off high-way parking for two cars. Note that the side yard is a sculpture construction site for The Westport Whale, a future roadside attraction. This place has all the basic amenities without the frills. The exterior of the house is almost completely renovated fully restoring it to it's historic state. It is my Dream and my favorite place to be in the whole world. I hope you will enjoy it too.
“Ako tražite mirno utočište na kalifornijskoj obali, ovo je mjesto za vas! Westport je sićušno, spokojno mjesto - nema gužve i prometa s kojima se ne bi sporili. Doista smo uživali u vremenu na prekrasnim nenatrpanim plažama - ima puno morskog stakla, šetajući prekrasnom obalom i obližnjim šumama. Zalasci sunca s prednjeg trijema su nevjerojatni. Vruća kupka bila je lijep bonus jer je ocean prilično hladan za kupanje. Kyle je mjesto ponudio puno mjesta za našu obitelj od četiri i dva psa. Plaže i mnoge staze u blizini prilagođavaju se psima. Kuća je ispunjena nevjerojatnom umjetnošću - većinu toga čine prethodni gosti. Tu je prostorna i dobro opskrbljena kuhinja koju smo skuhali u velikoj mjeri i ogroman stol za ručavanje koji smo koristili za ručavanje, kao i igre i zagonetke. Dvije velike spavaće sobe imaju lijepe udobne krevete i kvalitetne posteljine. Perilica i sušilica bili su zgodni dok smo putovali nekoliko tjedana i mogli smo se zadržati na rublje dok je bilo tamo. Imali smo nekoliko pitanja prije našeg boravka i Kyle je uvijek vrlo brzo reagirao - brzo nam se obratio s onim što smo trebali. Toplo preporučujemo ovo mjesto za opuštajući, miran izlazak. Nadamo se da ćemo se uskoro vratiti!”
This quaint 2bd/1ba cottage is located directly off the world-famous Avenue of the Giants scenic drive which is an outstanding display of the giant redwood trees. The cottage has two decks ideally located for morning coffee/ afternoon barbecues. The large meadow on this 5 acre property is for guest use. The cottage sits 1 mile from downtown Miranda. There is plenty to do around the ancient redwood forests including hiking, swimming, biking, and so much more Instagram @redcottage_avegiants
