About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Crafted of heart redwood, WHALESoNG HOUSE is a charming two-story home with three cozy bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully-stocked small kitchen with an adjacent dining area and a living room with a brick-surrounded woodstove fireplace.

Watch the WHALESoNG HOUSE and GARDENS on YouTube

A designer’s delight, WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS are lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, verdant, rear garden with multiple rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, princess flowers, camellias and other perennials.

Designed by one of the owners, the serene, sculptured, three-foot spherical fountain, Global Peace, which punctuates the dozens of heathers, lavenders and ornamental grasses in the front garden has become a Trinidad landmark. Byrd Baker, the “old timer” from Mendocino, who, in his small skiff, once blocked a Japanese whaling ship, carved the driftwood whale insignia, which hangs at the apex of the face of the house.

Six people can be accommodated comfortably in the three bedrooms. All are dressed with luxurious down comforters and many comfortable pillows. There is a cozy bathtub in the bright, upper bathroom and a narrow shower in the polished burl-countered lower bathroom. Complimentary bathrobes and linens are provided for each guest during your stay. The attached garage has been converted to a spacious storage and laundry room.

The furnishings were chosen by the owners for their elegance as well as comfort. Some are precious, sturdy, family heirlooms. Original art and photographs are tastefully displayed in the rooms and hallways. Massive, antique architectural pieces punctuate the apices of the interior and exterior walls.

The kitchen has a redundant supply of appliances and utensils including an automatic coffeemaker, microwave oven, a full-size 1954 GE refrigerator in perfect condition, a Amana stove and oven, a Maytag portable dishwasher, various Cuisinart and other brand mixers, blenders and crock pots. Attractive cookware, service-ware and accessories are provided in quantity for your home-away-from-home comfort.

The cable TV media room features a large TV and DVD player. In addition, there are many board games and puzzles for those quiet TV-free, intimate family evenings. You are only asked to treat them gently and return them to their locations.

Please note – The main source of heat is the wood stove. Must know how to build fires and recommend cozy attire for chilly evenings.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Graduation Weekend Fun! Our stay at Whale Somg was wonderful. Although we were on the run with graduation activities we thoroughly enjoyed the house, the incredible views, and Trinidad while we were there! Can't wait to return just to enjoy and explore!

We wish we could have stayed longer! We didn't even get to use the hot tub, but it was a perfect place for us to host out-of-towners for my daughter's wedding. We also enjoyed our walk around town.

Reviewer Comments:

It's a beautiful house with a great, clean hot tub. I stayed in the room upstairs. The bed was incredibly soft, which to me is uncomfortable. Also, the carpet was very dirty. I also thought that a 10:00 am checkout was incredibly early for an expensive property. Otherwise, the house and the stay were very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay at the Whalesong House. We work very hard to make our homes comfortable and we are sorry to hear the bed was too soft for you. While the carpets do have some stains, they are cleaned between every guest and routinely professionally clean. I will definitely look into whether a sooner clean is necessary. Thank you for the feedback.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, we really enjoyed this unique and homey space. We've never stayed in a place that was actually someone's vacation home, so we didn't relax as much as I think we could've, but still it was a perfect spot to stay. A couple of suggestions: A screen door or some window screens on the upstairs door to the patio would be nice because it gets extremely hot. Also, there seemed to be lots of spiders; my daughter saw a bunch in the twin bedroom and we each got a couple of bites during the night. I had 2 huge bites on my arm. But those are fixable things. Overall, we really enjoyed this place.

Owner's Response: Whalesong House is definitely unique and homey. thank you for the suggestions of the screens on the windows. During the days of your stay we had unusually warm weather, and as such, most homes in our area do not have screens as it generally does not get hot here. While the locals were loving the heat, it may have been a bit much for those coming from out of the area. Here in Trinidad we have a plethora of spiders. Primarily this time of year and through Fall. They are everywhere and on all homes and forests, but most are very harmless. There are very few that are problems and they are rarely seen. We will definitely keep an eye out for unusual activity and treat if necessary. Thank you for pointing them out to us. We do hope your stay to our area was otherwise fun and adventurous and we are glad you enjoyed the home. We do hope you will visit again and feel more comfortable in our homes.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the Whalesong House for your stay. Great location, close to the ocean, and beautiful garden out front. The loft area has served for the TV room for some time, and people have enjoyed the view out the windows from there. Unfortunately, we are unable to move the TV downstairs for lack of electrical outlets, but we will definitely consider some options. Thank you for your feedback.

Reviewer Comments:

My family was visiting Humboldt for a joyous occasion, the wedding of our son. Staying at Whalesong gave us the perfect balance of attending large festivities, and having such a comfortable home to return to. Located above beautiful Trinidad Bay, and a few minutes walk into town, it was the perfect home away from home for us. I highly recommend Whalesong and appreciate the good service we got from Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals.

Owner's Response: The Whalesong House is popular place to stay in Trinidad and I am pleased to hear that it was a good fit for you and your family gathering. The location makes it nice to access most all of Trinidad by foot and having some ocean views from the property is a treat. This area is so beautiful and scenic, it is good to hear that you were able to go our and enjoy the redwoods. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will visit us again soon.
