Mixed evergreen forests, redwoods, and grasslands round out some of the other habitats.

Guestbook comments from the owner
2010-07-17 "(5 out of 5) This is a great home in a wonderful area. Everything you need is there including a fully equipped kitchen! Big yard with beautiful views. There are tons of outdoor activities to do, including a one of a kind zip line through the Redwoods at Mt. Hermon. Our family definitely enjoyed our 3 month stay in Ben Lomond."
Lindley and Lolly
Lindley is the professor of ancient architecture and Lolly manages a ship plan collection for a national museum. We both love history, and learning about the world around us. Ben Lomond Bungalow is the place we come to dream and rejuvenate. Four generations have worked side by side on this property to call it our special home. Take a look at the youtube video to see photos of my ancestors enjoying the beach and the mountains during the early 1900's
Not more than an hours drive to San Francisco Bay Area, Monterey, and San Jose/ Silicon Valley, but only ten miles to the heart of Santa Cruz and the central coast beaches. As part of a nature preserve we enjoy the sun, our private meadow with its wildlife at our backdoor. Upon arrival most people marvel at the exquisite ancient oak tree with its 10,000 square foot canopy. Seasonal creeks run through our woods.
End the night under the magic of the stars in the lovely meadow room gathered around the fire pit. Enjoy the herbs and produce planted in our enclosed garden that you pick fresh for your self.
