Location

Fortuna, California, United States

We think our immediate neighborhood is special because, well, there is nothing really "special" about it at all. :-) The house is located behind the beautiful park and rodeo grounds on a meandering, quiet, country road where all the beauty is in the natural scenery of the surrounding and magnificent redwoods...so don't expect extraordinary architecture, landscaped yards, or street lights here, just expect ordinary, middle class, rural living spaces where some are much worse or better than others in an extraordinary valley.

A short 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk gets you to the heart of the bustling little town of Fortuna where you can get all of your living needs and desires met at grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, auto supply stores, gyms, antique co-ops, and gas stations.

I have a collection of menus and venues and must-see locations available in the house for you to peruse through :-)

What we think is the most special about Fortuna is the fact that it is a fabulous and temperate "home base" for all the events and seasons of Humboldt County. It is just inland enough to sport a warmer, dryer climate than the more northern, western, and coastal towns and is also centrally located to be between a 15 minute and an hour's drive to the historical architecture and events that are abundant and unique to Humboldt.

And speaking of which...there is sooooo much to take in and enjoy here in Humboldt…check the calendar before you get here to see if you can take part in local events like the Fortuna Rodeo, Humboldt Beer Fest, Art and Wine in the Park, and the Apple Harvest Festival, Auto Expo. or the Benbow Arts and Crafts Faire in Garberville!

A visit to Fern Canyon, Agate Beach, and Trinidad Head as well as a visit to Humboldt Redwoods State Park are other incredible sights to behold. (BTW, that particular park has the largest remaining stand of redwoods in the world.) And/or you could take a scenic drive down the Avenue of the Giants via Highway 101, hike the trailheads, or take a boat down the Eel River!

Additional trips within 30 minutes of the property could include Old Town Eureka, the Victorian Village of Ferndale, Sequoia Park Zoo, Loleta Cheese Factory, and Bear River Casino...or simply a leisurely walk in our woods or a vigorous hike on the well maintained hills of our very own enchanting Rohner Park.

Greetings! Evidently part of being a host on AirBnB is sharing some information about myself here. I will happily comply using the suggested format and say the following things: Some of the most important things in my life are my relationships with my family and friends, my health and well being, and living as simply and environmentally compatible as I possibly can with my wonderful husband of 27 (or so) years. Our vacation rental has been a collaborative project put together by me and my son. He is an extraordinary carpenter and he built the deck (and all that is above and below and surrounding it - except for the house) while I puttered on the inside of the house filling it with collections of things I have found at yard sales, thrift shops, and flea markets over the years. One of my main passions is to re-use, re-make, re-configure, and re-paint things, and It is my good fortune that he (Ben - and his family) live very close by. Since he is one amazing and handy man he can put into existence just about anything that comes to his momma's mind...(lol, there are back stories in that statement). Without him, or his awesome brother-in-law (Darryl) who helped every inch of the way by moving stuff, re-moving stuff, holding stuff, changing stuff, fixing stuff, and doing stuff like wiring, rewiring, cleaning, sanding, staining, nailing, painting, and countless other things, this place wouldn't have been totally transformed to what it looks like now from it's original state in just 3 short months. I prefer to stay close to home, vs. traveling like I used to, and putter in my little part of the world. I am of the mind that my health is my greatest wealth so I put a lot of time and energy into maintaining that and helping others learn to manage theirs as well. My main focus is always on the spiritual side of living, along with fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, herbs, and greens as preventative maintenance foods and healing medicine. I believe that the cure and the prevention of most diseases are identical. My deepest interests have to do with living an Inspired and Spirited life...a life that constantly paves the way for peace, freedom, creativity, and lots of people and things to love and enjoy. I tell you these things because, when we don't have tenants occupying the house we offer it up Tuesday's, Wednesday's, and Thursday's (primarily) for people to rent by the hour or by the day or by the evening for classes, courses, food prep demo's, massage, events, gatherings, and therapy. The topics and happenings that are presented here are very important to us...we (meaning my business partner and friend, Francine LeGendre) are highly interested in offering up the natural healing modalities of mother earth, spiritual modalities for healing wounded souls, and practical behavior modalities for healing damaged relationships . Our menu of concepts include the philosophies, techniques, and demonstrations of some of the greatest minds and teachers that we think have ever lived... We invite professionals who have passions for transformation into this beloved space. These professionals may teach the food-as-medicine concepts of the Medical Medium (Anthony Williams), lead the spiritual wisdoms of the Course of Miracles or the Meditations of Thich Nhat Hanh in groups, share healing touches through the use of Reike, table, or chair massage, do readings from Waite Smith or Thoth Tarot cards, or bring immediate transformation to age-long issues through the use of the foremost, world-renowned leading Hypnotherapy technique (Francine, who was trained by Marisa Peer does that)…personally I like to teach the magic of manners to kids. AirBnB has encouraged me to share what my life motto is...I have two favorites that I really put a lot of energy into living into: Plan, Act, Control, and Modify, Modify, Modify ...and... Every problem is an opportunity. As your host you can expect us to primarily to greet you (unless you come in at hours we are unavailable for greetings like after 9 in the evening and before 9 in the morning), show you how to use our place, and then leave it to you to contact us if you need us for any reason. We are across the road and happy to help....we want you to enjoy our little neck of the woods :-) Peace and blessings to you from Pauline (and Kevin, and our good friend and business partner...Francine LeGendre)
Greetings! Evidently part of being a host on AirBnB is sharing some information about myself here. I will happily comply using the suggested format and say the following things: So…
During your stay
Someone will meet and greet you and give you a quick little tour of how to use the place (it takes about 15 - 20 minutes). We need an approximate ETA in advance of your arrival and a 1/2 hour head's up before you get here so we can send you a landmark pic, have time to get there to meet you, and get all the lights turned on for you. :-)

Because of the crazy happenings in our world today)...I will be meeting and greeting you outside, in the open air, at a minimum of 6' - 8’ away, for a matter of 5 - 15 seconds, WITHOUT a mask. I ask that ALL guests meet me the same way. Once we have met, and we have gotten a chance to see each other’s smiling faces and read each other’s great vibes for those few seconds you can carry on wearing (or not wearing) your masks as you please!
It is, after all, your lives and your space, that you are paying for, to live in as you see fit about that.

To explain why...my protective husband most often cannot be with me to meet and greet guests. He does not like the idea of me meeting masked men (or other peoples) in the secluded woods that I could not identify.

We live in the same neck of the woods as our hideaways, so generally speaking you will simply be our neighbors who's lives are none of our business...HOWEVER, most of the time, there will be someone close by and available to speak to any questions or concerns you may have.

Since there is ALWAYS some kind of maintenance to do on the property you may see me hauling off the garbage, watering the hydrangeas, cleaning up after tenants leave, etc. I will only do quiet things like that (but we will not be weed-eating or mowing or doing construction work) while you are there and I will be in and out of there as quickly as I possibly can be and I will never go inside your home while you are living there (except in some kind of emergency scenario). I will always give you a head's up that I am coming up and for what reason via text.
