Description from owner
The Goat Rock House sits on a bluff along the Sonoma Coast and is uniquely located inside Goat Rock Beach Park, more than one mile west of Highway 1. Our house is about 1 hour and 45 minute drive (73 miles) north of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge; 4 miles south of Jenner; 10 miles north of Bodega Bay; and only 5 minutes south of the Russian River Bridge.
As you drive down the winding road and rock formations towards the sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean, near the mouth of the Russian River, you know that you have arrived at a special place. Our house is one of a small handful of homes that are grandfathered in the State Park and blessed by the park's sweeping panorama of the Pacific Ocean and status as a natural reserve.
The 3-bedroom house fronts a small road on a spectacular 1 acre oceanfront lot. As you enter the driveway, you will be struck by the sense of privacy offered by the Cypress and Pine trees that border the land. From the living room and kitchen windows, enjoy an exclusive front-row seat and 180 degree view of Arch Rock – the dramatic rock formation that photographers frequently use to typify the natural beauty of the Sonoma Coast. As you turn to the southern, western, and northern windows, you will be mesmerized by the park's surroundings, its peacefulness, and the signature of Goat Rock that endears visitors year round, the incredible panoramic views of the Pacific coastline.
With the Pacific Ocean and Russian River at its base, this house and its surroundings have something for everyone. Relish a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the deck, enjoy the tranquility offered by the ocean's panorama or revel in the activities offered by the park's rugged trails, beaches, and river terrains. The house is within walking distance to two beaches directly below: (1) Blind Beach where the Kortum Trail begins and (2) Goat Rock Beach as defined by the isthmus and the mouth of the Russian River.
We are less than an hour's drive to the award winning Pinot Noir vineyards of the Russian River back country, the new appellation of Fort Ross, and the town of Healdsburg. Whether you choose to do a little or a lot, you will find yourself coming back to Goat Rock.
This 1,000 square feet home has an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining, and living room areas. The house can accommodate up to 6 people comfortably. State-certified well water (very drinkable) is trucked to the house for storage and use. All rooms are situated on a single level. There is a wrap-around deck that surrounds all four sides of the house with a nice short ramp provided for those guests who are walking-challenged or wheelchair-reliant. The house has tile flooring throughout and furnished with craftsman-style décor and a blend of modern. The kitchen is fully equipped, with commercial faucet and gas stove. New counter-height dining table and waterfall seats ideal for staring at the ocean. The beds and pillows are covered by quality linens and allergen-proof liners. Gas BBQ and bar-height tables on the deck. Complimentary load of firewood for use in the large, brick fireplace for times when the coast is foggy, cold, and windy.
Enjoy complimentary use of TWO tandem kayaks, each large enough to hold 2 people and a small dog or child. Enjoy bird-watching, canoeing, and fishing (upriver from Russian River Bridge). October begins the small Steelhead run; November begins the larger Steelhead run that would continue to April. From mid November through April begins the whale migration to the south.
WILDLIFE AND ACTIVITIES (INSIDE PARK)
The Goat Rock State Park is located more than a mile west of Highway 1, far from the glare of ambient lights, and separated from the small town of nearby Jenner by both the Russian River estuary and the Goat Hill peninsula. As a result, on a clear night, the house offers some of the darkest night skies and unbelievable opportunities for star gazing and night photography.
Besides its two beaches, the Goat Rock State Park offers many miles of walking trails, including the Kortum Trail and the western section of the Pomo Canyon Trail. These trails lead you to ocean vistas, wind-swept grasslands, wild life and faunas. The unique rock formations along the Kortum Trail near the park's entrance are used by rock climbers for a wide variety of climbing challenges.
The Park has also earned the distinction as a wildlife refuge -- home to a variety of migrating birds and, between mid-February and August, a colony of quiet, state-protected harbor seals and their nurseries. During weekends, the small road in front of the house can be popular as visitors drive to the estuary. When the park closes at sunset, relish the privacy that only a state park preserve can provide. Turn off the lights, step onto the front deck and hear the roar of the ocean below. On a clear night, see the shimmers of a dark night sky stretch across the ocean's horizon.
