Em and Al Byrnes built this house in the early 1930s, as a place to retire from running their “resort” up the road. It’s located shortly after the Emandal Sign, about a five minute walk from the farm itself. Full dimension, clear redwood boards were used for the foundation to the attic. Their gardens surrounding the house were both beautiful and bountiful. They left it to Clive and Jessie Adams upon their passing. It has been used as a fishing cabin, staff housing…. and for 17 years, a “necessary small school” house for the four Adams children, and the kids from the surrounding area. The name Acorn Hollow was coined from the walls of the house…. filled to over-flowing with acorns from the resident Acorn Woodpeckers.
A welcoming front porch, light filled living room, tiny built-in office, two fairly large bedrooms, a bathroom with claw-foot tub, and a large farm kitchen with dining table make this most suitable for adults and kids alike. Adjoining the house is a 40 foot container, dubbed the Blue Motel, which has been converted into three bedrooms, each with a sliding glass door, large window and a queen bed. It’s nicely insulated, so it remains cool in the summer heat, as long as the windows are opened and closed appropriately….. just like the house! A bath house is part of the deal…… with the shower open to the sky!
A propane grill, along with a picnic table with stumps for seating can be found at the back of the house. In the winter and early spring, a campfire circle is available close by.
This is one of three self-contained houses available for rent throughout the year.
