Let the world drop away as you drive up our 2/10 mile driveway and catch a glimpse of our striking modern cabin sitting atop a low ridge running through the property. Right in the trees, it's cool in the Summer and protected from winter winds by dramatic madronas and tall firs. The only other building in sight is our barn about 200ft to the east, which is not part of the rental. Walk past the front door to the house on the wraparound 600sqft deck, and you’ll look down on our private meadow, perfect for frizbee, badminton, or just sitting by the fire pit with a guitar, friends and family. On the other side of the house is a smaller field with a full size regulation soccer goal for practice and friendly competition.
There are essentially two bedrooms, while the master is conventionally configured with a queen bed and small private deck, the second bedroom has a sliding wooden wall, a full size futon on the first floor, and a sleeping loft with a full size bed, and adjacent rooftop atrium. Then there is what we call the 'Kid Ship'... This is a loft space built above the kitchen, with a full size futon- a huge favorite of our kids, and any adult willing to climb a ladder. Despite it's name, it isn't suitable for kids under 7. My bedroom of choice is the sunken living room, which has curtains closing it off from the rest of the house, a large stone fireplace, 46' LED TV, 14' ceilings, big windows, and a comfy queen size hide-a-bed couch.
If there are members of your party with mobility issues, the main floor, driveway and deck are all in the same plane, and there is a gently sloped road down to the meadow, which can be navigated with a stroller, wheelchair or vehicle. There are deer, colonies of Thatcher ants, Pacific tree frogs, coyotes, herons , ravens, owls, and woodpeckers making frequent appearances when you make a little time for them.
