About Ken and Laura Scheidegger

Native to the California Bay Area, Ken and Laura Scheidegger today live in the California Delta where they own a family farm, farmers market and a restaurant. Ken is a PhD in Oceanography and headed the PhD program at Oregon State for many years. The location of The Pelican House offers Ken the perfect setting from which he can enjoy his true love ... the Sea.

Ken and Laura Scheidegger purchased this house in 1989

Why Ken and Laura Scheidegger chose North Coast California

Over the years the family has enjoyed The Sea Ranch and all of the joys that come with it. From Ab Diving to Golf ... the Scheideggers have built wonderful memories from their time at The Sea Ranch. The location of The Pelican House is one of the first developed and represents the best that The Sea Ranch has to offer. Busy lives have kept the family from visiting the house and it is time to share with others what they have so enjoyed over the years.

What makes this house unique

One of the finest locations in Sea Ranch! Only nature lies between you and the beautiful cliffs and majestic ocean of the The Sea Ranch coast. The Ocean Front Hiking Trail is seconds from the front door and the golf course is minutes away. The setting and layout of the property and house allow you to feel as though it is you and the Sea with nothing in between but indigenous grasses, plants, deer, and the occasional fox! Enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine on the spacious and open deck as you take in your unobstructed view of the ocean. Particularly in March and October, you will most likely see the grand whale migration! Pelicans effortlessly soar above the coastline inspiring a feeling of peace and serenity - we hope you will find this same feeling when you visit The Pelican House.

Special seaside getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent two lovely nights here--enjoying the peaceful setting, the views, and the beautiful beach house. It feels spacious and comfortable--with thoughtful touches in every room. The beds are extremely comfortable with extra pillows and very nice linens. We cooked several meals with ease and relaxed by the fireplace in the evening after the lovely fog rolled in the second night. The first night was crystal clear, complete with shooting stars in the twinkling heavens.

Great Place for Coastal Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Pelican House is well equipped and comfortable with great ocean views from the deck. Probably would have enjoyed the outside deck even more if it had not been so windy.

Blissful Retreat & Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Pelican House for a couple of nights to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. It was the perfect place to relax and envision what we wanted from our future on this special occasion. Dramatic views of the coastline, the wide open sky, plentiful stars and wildlife inspired us to think about finding our own home closer to nature. The house was comfortable and well equipped and we couldn't have asked for more. We walked along the bluff and spent a day on the beach taking photos and soaking up the beauty of this magnificent place. We highly recommend the Pelican House for a relaxing time with family and friends.

Ideal house for Sea Ranch and the North Coast

  • 5 of 5

We had a well-traveled couple from the East Coast as guests and we wanted to give them a slightly different experience, thus Sea Ranch. We hadn’t been to Sea Ranch ourselves for 15 or so years. If you are reading this review you know what Sea Ranch has to offer and one of the requests from our guests was lots of good walking trails. That plus the wild coast can be and should be extremely attractive to anyone.

Pelican House itself was outstanding. There was nothing lacking; it’s in great shape; incredibly equipped; comfortable beds; comfortable furniture; lots of drawers, hangers etc.; outstandingly clean; perfect view of the ocean. Two separate bedroom + bath situations on opposite sides of the house make for complete privacy. All rooms are large and very bright. Although we did no cooking here beyond boiling water for tea and making coffee in the coffee machine, the kitchen has absolutely everything you’d want. If one were staying more than the 3 nights that we were there you would likely want to think about cooking because restaurant options for miles in all directions are extremely limited.

Dealing with the owners via VRBO or direct email couldn’t have been simpler or more instantaneous.

This house is absolutely to be recommended.
