Let the peacefulness of this Craftsman style cottage ease your mind as you transition into your vacation. Deer stroll the yard each evening and you might even see a turkey or two. Walk the San Clemente loop and enjoy the diverse architecture of homes and landscaping along the route.

The Cottage was simply built in the 1920's and updated with function in mind. It has a front porch with rockers that you can enjoy the evenings on...even take your meal there. There are two bedrooms; one with a queen size bed and one with a double bed. Both have a dresser and closet in their rooms. A full size oven and stove, microwave, dishwasher and full size refrigerator is provided in the kitchen. The bathroom is equipped with a shower/tub combination and a heater for your comfort. There is a barbeque in the back yard that is stored in the shed near the house. There is a BBQ and table and chairs in the back yard for your use. Step back in time a bit...hang your clothes on the clothes line for that fresh sunshine fragrance, it can be relaxing. There is no a/c, yet the ceiling fans and the double hung windows to a great job of keeping it comfortable.
Interesting points of Atascadero: There is fabulous weather. The average high in the summer is 90 degrees, low is 56. The winter highs are 62 and lows are 37. The summers can be gorgeous with warm days and evenings. There is a great park and lake (normally...we are in a drought and lake is almost dry) where you can rent paddle boats, canoes, feed the ducks or have a family gathering and rent BBQ pits. Located near the park is the Charles Paddock Zoo. Atascadero hosts many events such as wine tasting, Christmas in the Park and other holiday events each weekend in December, and a summer concert series.

Additional Location Information
While we have neighbors around us, the property has a very rural feel. There is a church across the street, so it is busy on Sunday mornings, otherwise fairly quiet during the week. The house is located on a hill. Many people walk this street for exercise and has been nicknamed the San Clemente Loop. No two houses or properties are alike, so it is interesting to walk the loop or 'block' and see the different houses and landscaping.
You know what I love about this neighborhood? First off the neighbors on either side are great (one is my daughter...of course I would say that!). The second thing I love is the way it smells, the grass especially in the summer with the oaks has an earthy fragrance that just seems to help relax me.
Locally, there is a zoo and a great park with a small lake. A lot of people choose to walk or jog around the lake. The city of Atascadero seems to always have something going on. The Chamber of Commerce is a good site to check out.
