Crafted of heart redwood, Whalesong House is a charming two-story home with a well-equipped, full kitchen, an adjacent dining area, and a living room with a wood stove. A designer’s delight, this rental is lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, rear garden brimming with rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, camellias, and other perennials. Designed by one of the owners, the 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. And 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. Guests of this rental will also enjoy the view from the furnished balcony, the gas grill, and the private hot tub, perfect for soothing both body and soul.
This rental is located right in the heart of town making it easy to walk to restaurants, shops, galleries, and museums. For the adventurous, this home is about a mile from College Cove Beach and College Cove Falls, a little over two miles from Luffenholtz and Moonstone Beach, and about six miles from Patricks Point State Park. And if you want to hike the scenic trails of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, this home is about 28 miles south.
