Perched on a hill just steps from downtown Occidental, the Occidental Victorian is a true Victorian farmhouse surrounded by effusive gardens, with spectacular views of Occidental and the hills beyond.
Every room is full of windows and has been lovingly furnished with pieces that combine modern comfort with classic style and beauty. Take in the restful view of town from these bay windows.
The charming country kitchen is spacious and light-filled, and provides a great place for friends and family to gather while you prepare local fare.
The upstairs master bedroom is large and light, with views of the gardens on one side, and a birds-eye view of downtown Occidental in front.
The second upstairs bedroom is called the "Dormitory" because it's so long and includes both a queen bed and two twin beds.
Downstairs is another bedrooms suite with a full bed in one room and sofabed in the adjoining room. There's a full bathroom nearby as well as another upstairs.
You'll also find a separate office downstairs overlooking the front porch and gardens. With wifi and two desks, it's perfect for people who want to get away yet stay connected.
Out back you'll find a large deck with plenty of seating and a gas grill for outdoor dining. In summer the entire property is in bloom. Relax and take in the bucolic views while sipping a nice glass of local wine.

We came here with a group of seven. All of us loved this beautiful house very close to the main street in Occidental. It has a well equipped kitchen, nice bedrooms, a lovely dining room and sitting room. There is a great porch out front looking over a beautiful garden, and another deck out back overlooked by some huge redwoods. The internet service worked great. We didn't use the TV so can't comment on that.
A couple of things to note:
- We were woken by a 30-second siren the second night we stayed. After a bit of searching on the internet we learned that this is the local fire station calling in volunteer firefighters. It is not an earthquake warning or similar impending catastrophe.. :)
- There is essentially no AT&T cell phone service in the house, or in Occidental. Hence the siren, presumably.
We loved staying here, and intend to come back.
Great place. Very cozy and comfortable. Host was gracious and helpful as well. Would definitely return here.
The house is Beautiful!
Comfortable, cozy and near town.
We had two guests from Spain in our group, and they loved the architecture of the home and the American flag out front. We will do this again! We arrived late at night, the roads, and outside the home, would have been easier to manage during the day "we had a flashlight" :)
It was lovely!
Fun loving group from Boda de Sauce!
The booking, communication and check in were straight forward, simple and efficient. It was kind of a last minute weekend getaway during a busy spring and I appreciated there wasn't any extra fuss to get it all set up.
I was part of a group of 7 who stayed this past weekend for a retreat up Bohemian Hwy. This victorian house was awesome! Everyone was extremely happy that we were able to stay in such a nice place, and so close to the retreat! There was amble space for all 7 of us, plenty of lush greenery to admire and tons of bowls, utensils, cooking ware for us to stay in and cook. We had a fantastic time staying there and would definitely like to come back!
