     Enjoy the peaceful serenity of this remote wilderness retreat, one hour southeast of Eureka. If you don't have a four-wheel drive vehicle, your host will deliver and return you to our base station at Abigail's Elegant Victorian Mansion, for a small additional fee of $75.

     The Chalet is located behind locked gates, on a mountain top at 3,000 feet, over-looking 50 mile views of unending mountain and valley wilderness. Nestled next to a mountain stream in a grove of Redwood trees, the Chalet is a replica of an 18th century Alpine Chalet of the high Alps. Far from civilization, our home has no electricity, except what we produce ourselves from our own 12 volt D.C. Solar Panels and battery bank. The water from our pure mountain spring is the best you will ever taste. Winter heat is from our wood stove, with fuel from our own oak groves.

     The Chalet is surrounded by groves of Redwood trees, Fir & Pine trees, grass meadows, and groves of Mountain Oak trees. There are comfortable, easy walking/hiking trails throughout the 180 acres of the property, providing ample views of wildlife. The property is surrounded by large cattle and timber ranches of 5,000 – 15,000 acres.

     While breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, all meals reflect the rustic, wilderness environment, and are simple, basic and without fanfare. If you wish to bring your own gourmand sophistication and culinary specialties to the cook stove, you are encouraged to do so.

     What you need to bring are cameras (with extra batteries), binoculars, a good book or two, good hiking boots, a love of nature, and an appreciation of absolute tranquility. I would also say "quiet" – but, here you will hear the gentle wind blowing through the trees, the gurgle of a mountain stream, the songs of many varieties of birds, and too, the occasional night-time howl of a coyote in the distance.

     The Chalet has been our home for nearly 40 years and we now invite you to share our home with us. This extraordinary Alpine architecture, with its Bavarian interiors, is in a setting of pristine mountain wilderness – as close to God as you can get. The views from our mountain top Chalet and its 180 acres of park land, are some of the most outstanding vistas that you will ever see, and one of the main reasons couples come here.

     For one, or two couples (if traveling together), $350 per night, per couple; two night minimum. Round-trip transportation in our 4-wheel drive (required) vehicle, from Abigail's Elegant Victorian in Eureka is $75 extra. If you have your own 4-wheel drive vehicle to make the trip to the outback, this extra cost can be avoided. As we do not take credit cards, advanced payment (required) can be made with a Casher's Cheque, Postal Money Order or Bank Draft.

     To learn more about this unique opportunity, and to check on availability, call (707) 444-3144 – ask for Doug.
