    Our family had a fabulous stay in Blue Lake. The home layout is perfect for families; parents on one side, the kitchen and living room in the middle, with two other bedrooms on the opposite side. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked. There are indoor games and bag toss to use on the lovely backyard patio. The home is charming inside and out with a lovely view of the valley. Serena could not have been a better host. In preparation for the trip she checked in, answered questions and provided useful information about the area. She was very accessible throughout. This home is missing nothing. This is where we will stay when we return to the area.

  • Host with the best eye for detail


    Before you even enter the property it is clear that the host, Serena, cares about her guest and goes the extra mile in communicating clearly and warmly. The welcoming nature continued as we stayed in the beautiful home which balances modern, cozy, airy, and home away from home. Serena has an eye for detail that surpasses any other place we have ever stayed. The home is thoughtfully put together, masterfully crafted with custom finishes, and really suits the beautiful view that is seen from the front porch as well as the main living area. It was the perfect place to stay as we explored the redwoods (nicely situated between The Avenue of the Giants as well as other Redwood Parks; we loved Lady Bird Johnson Grove). We only wished we had planned more than the 2 nights we stayed as we headed up the coast, because we could've easily stayed much longer!!!Also, our kids appreciated the little touches just for them (kids books/puzzles/games/chalk)! And as parents, we were thankful for the highchair and playpen that made our lives easier.

  • Perfect Thanksgiving weekend


    Though small in square feet, this wonderful vacation home was perfect for our family. One side of the great room had 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, perfect for my daughter and her husband, and 8 year old son. The master bath was on the other side so we each had our privacy. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make a Thanksgiving dinner for 9. There were toys for the visiting 2 1/2 year old and 5 year old, corn hole toss and basketball for the older kids, and even a firepit to keep us warm (we had unusually mild weather and didn't need to use it but it was nice to know it was there). Serena was wonderful in checking in to make sure we knew how to get into the house and to see if we needed anything. Except for a one cup liquid measuring cup I couldn't think of anything that was supplied for us. We're all looking forward to a repeat of this trip.
