A short drive away you can climb Prospect Hill and take in fantastic views from the south to the north coast, visit Pennington Bay and take in the incredible vista and walk the wild long surf beach on the southern ocean. Then on to American River to buy fresh oysters at the wharf and relax with a cup of coffee or light lunch overlooking the inlet.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Rosie is the perfect hostess and response was always quick and to the point. It is evident that the hostess takes pride in her property. The Deck feels like home away from home with a scenery to die for. Everything was exactly as advertised and more. Sitting outside looking at the sea, dolphins and whales swimming by and that just adds to the ambiance. We will have everlasting memories....
