Tucked away on a hillside in the Los Padres National Forest, between Mount Pinos and Sawmill Mountain, Chateau Merritt is nestled among the lofty pines on Tulip Place.
One mile from the main road, this bungalow-style two-bedroom unit sits atop a converted garage. Note: there is no full time residence downstairs. Private and spacious, both bedrooms welcome you with comfy queen beds. The cabin sleeps 2-4 people, depending on arrangements.
To the front the Tecuya Ridge is visible. The sun sets between San Emigdio Mountain (7480 feet) and Cerro Noroeste (8400 feet), cradled by the Apache Saddle. After sundown, darkness settles on the mountain and stargazers often enjoy clear views of the Milky Way and an occasional falling star.
Do you see something move out of the corner of your eye? You might have spotted rabbits, quail, or other wildlife common to the area as you enjoy your BBQ and outdoor dinning area.
On an autumn or spring visit, step out onto the patio to view the sunset over the mountains and allow a wonderful warm breeze to refresh you. Or relax with a good book on the deck in your twin chase lounge with a comfy mattress/pad.
In winter, temperatures dip and snow is possible. Too cold? Come inside and snuggle up on a huge L-shaped lazy couch near your wood-burning fireplace.
Both the indoor and outdoor sitting areas are perfect for mellow afternoons or evenings with a bottle of white wine and your favorite cheese and crackers.
Stroll down among the mountain roads for quiet reflection. If you prefer indoor activities, your cabin is equipped with Internet and TV.
Do you have small pets? In some cases we can accommodate. Please ask Carolyn for information when you call.
