A short walk to the ocean reveals resplendent wildlife including a seal rookery, blue herons, pelicans, seagulls, cormorants, sandpipers, ospreys, snowy egrets, hummingbirds, and many more. This beach house offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom features a Queen bed and en suite bathroom. The second bedroom offers a Queen bed and the third offers a Queen bed.

Two decks provide space for a barbecue and a large hot tub.

Located in the quiet and quaint village of Jenner, Castle Crag is less than two hours north of San Francisco. It has magnificent views of the river valley, estuary and river's entrance to the ocean. As the village is somewhat sheltered from ocean breezes, pleasantly warm weather is the typical climate for most of the year, with occasional sea mists. For those interested in visiting wine county, this home is only a 30 minute beautiful drive along the river to the Korbel Champagne vineyards. There are excellent restaurants all along the river and the coastline between Bodega and Jenner.
