We are located approximately 50 feet from the boundary of MacKerricher Beach State Park on an acre of sand dunes on Ward Ave just 3 miles north of the town of Fort Bragg. Unlike many, if not most, of the houses on the North Coast we are at beach level and just (2)minutes from the sand and miles of walkable beach. One can walk the uncrowded beach north to Inglenook Fen or south on the old logging 'Haul Road' through MacKerricher all the way into town. The view from the house south is of 'Laguna Point' which is a prime spot for viewing sea lions and migrating whales.
The house is a classic beach house. It is not fancy but has everything one needs. We have loved it for 40 years because of its location and casual comfort. It is great for children and grandchildren who love the easy access to the sand, the large wraparound deck and sleeping in the loft. Please note the sleeping accomodations: We have just completed an addition of a second bedroom.The original bedroom has a new, queen, memoryfoam bed; the new bedroom has a new queen bed; the den has a queen hide-a-bed; and the loft has two queen beds side by side and one single bed.
The kitchen is fully equipped and there is cable TV, DVD/VCR and small stereo with i-pod dock for those that want them. WE NOW HAVE WIRELESS INTERNET.

I own this house with my sisters. We inherited it from our parents who lived in it for 15 years after Dad retired. My folks chose the location for its beauty and historical ties. My grandfather learned his trade as a saw filer in the old Fort Bragg lumber mill and my great-grandfather was killed in the nearby woods in a logging accident over 100 years ago.
Eric Nelson purchased this house in 1969
"I can't imagine a better week! The kitchen had everything we needed, there were plenty of beds and blankets, great family movies, showers were hot & toilets flushed, and the beach was across the street. We flew your kite, rode our bikes and walked our dog every day and night. The location is amazing! The state park and beaches are clean. Great local grocery stores. It was very relaxing and like home. I hope we cared for your home,as you would have. So, thank you."
My family (6 adults) spent two days in this wonderful home. It was very comfortable and had everything that we needed including WiFI. It was exactly as advertised. My sons were already asking when we could come back before we had even left. I would highly recommend this house.
I had the pleasure of spending this past Memorial Day Weekend with my family at this gorgeous beachfront property. Eric (the owner of said breathtaking home) was very accommodating, helpful, and prompt when responding to emails. The house came with a ton of amenities (games, movies, additional blankets, silverware, pots & pans, a bbq grill, you name it!) for me and my family to use. I definitely recommend this house!
If you are looking for a home away from home, this is it. There is everything you could ask for and more. The home is cozy and comfortable. The view is spectacular. It is well situated for all services. We are returning again in May and look forward to many more opportunities to take advantage of this home away from home.
This house is so comfortable and absolutely perfect for our family! My mom is in a wheelchair. It was so easy for her to get around the house, out onto the large deck, and even down to the old haul road along the beach. My teenage sons loved the easy beach access just steps from the house and spent a lot of time surf fishing, crabbing, and biking. The ocean views are amazing and we even saw seals and sea lions sunning on the rocks at the south end of the beach. The owners couldn't be nicer and have thought of everything to make their guests feel right at home. We are so eager to get back to the Classic Beach House!!
This was a wonderful house. It made the family get together perfect. Plenty of room for all 7 of us and the dogs too. There was more spices than I have ever seen in a vacation rental. Everyone said there beds were comfy. I slept on the twin in the loft, which looked out to the Ocean. Every night I was lulled to sleep by the sound and sight of the crashing waves. Everything went smoothly. I cant wait to go back again. My Mom is already planning a summer getaway and wants to come back here!
My family and I truly enjoyed staying at the Classic Beach House. The house is located directly across from the beach with easy access to a walking path as well as the sand. The house is rustic, but cozy and comfortable. It easily slept all nine of us. You cannot beat the gorgeous views of the ocean from almost every window! The kitchen was fully stocked, which we appreciated since we enjoy fixing meals together. The stable down the street provided conveinent horseback riding along the beach for my kids. We would definately come back and absolutely recommend this property to anyone!
