RAVEN RIDGE RETREAT: BEAUTIFULLY LANDSCAPED AND QUIET SERENITY

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Less than a mile from the Historic Village of Trinidad, this elegant home is on four acres and at the end of a private road. It is snuggled into a mature redwood forest, with plenty of sun exposure. Quiet, except for the occasional sound of seals in the distance, and songs of chickadees, winter wrens and Douglas squirrels; this is truly a retreat. This wood-sided home has an outside hot tub on a private deck adjacent to the upstairs bedroom. The spacious front patio has a fire pit for those who love to spend their evenings out. There is a ping-pong table and darts in the garage. For the lawn there are croquet and bocce ball. There are two sets of golf clubs with pull carts available, one men's, one ladies.

Oftentimes the location is out of the fog and wind of other beach side properties; This is a peaceful, private experience where the beauty of nature satisfies your craving for tranquility. This is the home that you will long to return to year after year.

Inside, granite counter tops and a cook top stove are centrally located for gabbing with each other over cocktails. The wet bar is where those cocktails originate; the cabinets are all custom made. All the proper amenities are here, whether you are planning a lavish dinner or want casual dining on the patio. There is a king sized bed upstairs and a walk in shower with his and her's sinks and showers. A set of twin trundle (day) beds downstairs (can be made into a queen bed), and a fold-out couch/futon with a comfy mattress is in the upstairs loft. Outside, there is the Octacabana—a cozy building 50 feet away from the house with windows that open to the sound of the year-round creek and waterfalls. The Octacabana has a heater (No Plumbing) and a Queen bed—perfect for a couple who wants to sleep in and be alone, surrounded by nature.

For cat lovers, we have a cat named Bunky. He is loving, playful and very friendly. This is his home and we would love to have you take care of him during your stay. If that is not to your liking, he can stay with the gal next door (if she is home), or we retain the option to stay on the premises in an attached but separate living quarters so that we can take care of him.

If you need a break from hiking and exploring the beauty of the North Coast, you can stay inside. A large collection of music CD’s are here for your listening pleasure. There are many DVD and VCR movies, (most are suitable for children). There are also some board games and a large selection of picture puzzles.

The natural setting in the redwoods has been complimented with groomed native plants, rhododendrons (41 of them!), cedars, and Japanese maples. Two ponds full of goldfish, water lilies and a pump-powered waterfall between them are a perfect place to have lunch and a chance to glimpse a threatened species, the red-legged frog. The large lawn is perfect for bocce ball or croquet. The back yard is a lush shade garden, full of ferns, Japanese variegated grass and more Japanese maples. From there, the forest drops off towards McConnahas Creek.

Owned and designed by a renowned photography couple, this home is decorated with stunning photographs and interesting artifacts from their decades of travels. It is a short scenic drive to Redwood National and State Parks, Trinidad State Beach and Patrick’s Point State Park. Arcata and Humboldt State University are 20 minutes away. A locally-owned grocery is less than a mile away; many fine restaurants are within minutes.

Trinidad is a sport fisherman’s destination. If you enjoy fishing in the ocean, bring your boat! There is a large field for parking boats and trailers, and a chest freezer is available for storing your bounty until your return home.

Keywords: End of Private Road, 4 Acres, Redwoods, Spa, Large Lawn. Great intimate Wedding Venue.

About Larry and Donna Ulrich

Larry and Donna Ulrich are professional nature photographers. They have been photographing America and beyond for almost 40 years. This is their home: they live in it most of the time. If you have been bitten by the Travel Bug, you know you just have to keep going places. So they decided to rent their home and share the beauty of their surroundings with others. While they are out visiting places they love, you can live in the home they love. The Gardener is Donna, the maintenance guy is Larry and you will quickly learn that they take pride in their home and its surroundings. Ask about packages for a Larry Ulrich Creative Photography Workshop May 25-27.

Larry and Donna Ulrich purchased this house in 1995

Why Larry and Donna Ulrich chose Trinidad

There is a year-round creek on the property, and we have always loved living near water. When we discovered that McConnahas Creek with its natural waterfalls was on the parcel that sealed the deal.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful tranquility in a natural setting for relaxing and entertaining family and friends. It is an easy walk into Trinidad where there is a museum, grocery, Post Office, wine tasting at Moonstone Winery and more beaches than you can visit in a week.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Raven Ridge left a lasting impression on our family. We were enchanted by the grounds as well as the surrounding woodlands. The home itself is everything it appears to be and more. You can feel the attention and love that went into creating it. We truly felt like we were on vacation. It was the perfect nest to come back to after exploring the area, hiking, and beach combing. Some of the most magical places we will ever see are very nearby. Our children did not want to leave, nor did we. This is the first VRBO place we have stayed that not only lived up to it's description, but exceeded it. We have every intention of returning one day.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5
Raven Ridge is a beautiful, serene property close to town. The house has a very open feeling with lots of wood, windows and access to the outdoors. It's comfortable and clean with a well equipped large kitchen. We also enjoyed the koi ponds and eating outside on the patio, surrounded by redwoods and the lovely, expansive, oval shaped front yard.

Secluded Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house in a park-like secluded setting. Even when you are inside, you still feel connected to nature due to the many windows and wood decor/floors. Great place for a family reunion. Spacious kitchen. We prepared fresh oysters on the outdoor patio grill and ended the evening with a blazing fire in the pit, which was supplied with plenty of firewood. Large lawn surrounded by woods.

The Perfect California Redwood Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My Wife and I saw this property on VRBO and thought it was a good fit for us. When I arrived I was met by the friendly owners Larry and Donna who showed me the property and home. The home and grounds were perfect, better than any picture could show. It is located at the end of a country road, you are in a quiet and serene area surrounded by redwoods. The pond and waterfall on the side of the property add to the peacefulness. I used the fire pit and hot tub every night, it was a perfect end to a day of hiking and exploring the area. I had the choice to take care of their cat Bunky and that was one of the best parts of the stay, he is real sweet animal with a lot of personality and trained us well in his daily routine. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants live the redwood experience.
