This is a fabulous, private guest house in our backyard. Easy access to the Rose Bowl if you're planning to attend an event, the monthly flea market, or the Rose Parade. Ideal place to relax--cozy guest house with full size kitchen plus our beautiful deck and gardens for fresh air and California sunshine. Walking distance to trails around the Hahamonga Watershed Park as well as the Angeles National Forest.
Note: Ideal for 2 people, but could accommodate 4 by placing air mattress in kitchen
This lovely guesthouse offers everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The wood shingled kitchen is bright and airy, looking into the garden. Fully stocked with all cooking essentials, it also has a little table in the corner for two. However, weather permitting, dining outside is always the best choice. We have a few different places throughout the yard that make wonderful dining spots. The main room of the studio has a very comfortable queen sized bed. Drawers underneath for easy unpacking. While the space is ideal for two people, there is an option of an air mattress that we can place in the kitchen for two more people. There is a flat screen TV on the wall. THERE IS NO CABLE--only wireless internet and access to Netflix, Hulu (with Showtime), and Amazon. The bathroom has a charming refinished clawfoot tub, great for soaking in a hot bath--or it has a nice shower with terrific water pressure if you prefer. There is laundry on sight if you need it.
We just had our wedding in our backyard, so our garden is particularly spectacular! Also, the guest house is directly across from our beautiful deck with bench swing and natural gas fire pit--perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day! Its not bad for enjoying the first cup of coffee of the day, either. The way the guest house is situated, it is completely separate from the house and very private. Even sitting on the deck gives you quite a bit of privacy.
We are located in the main house on the property, but the guest house is far enough back that you can feel complete privacy, even while enjoying the deck. We're here if you need us, but we're happy to let you do your own thing.
We live two blocks from the Hahamonga Watershed which offers wonderful walking trails that head around the park or back into the Angeles National Forest. Wonderful for jogging. You can even follow a trail down to the Rose Bowl. Hahamonga also hosts the original frisbee golf course! Not to mention it is home to multiple endangered birds, plus other interesting wildlife. If you are visiting the Rose Bowl, we are minutes away by car, or about a 30 minute walk. Wonderful dining and shopping in Old Town Pasadena is 10 minutes away, or if you're feeling more adventurous Eagle Rock, Silverlake, and Downtown LA all have easy freeway access from our house and take 15-30 minutes to drive. There's also a fabulous bakery/cafe that does lunch and breakfast called Lincoln, which is about a 5 minute drive, and could even be walkable if you're up for some exercise. Super King (grocery store) is a quick 5 minute drive, and even walkable if you're up to it. Across the street from Super King is a 24 hour fitness is you're looking to lift some weights! Altadena hosts two local watering holes, The Ale House on Fair Oaks which serves beer and wine and has a nice patio, and the Rancho on Lake which is a classic dive with cheap drinks and a billiard table. Both are beloved spots of the Altadena nightlife.
We are located very close to the Rose Bowl, you could easily ride your bike, or take a nice walk through the Hahamonga watershed trails. There is a public bus service about a half mile from the house. Lots of street parking if you are bringing a car, and easy access to the freeways.
