There is a sparkling year-round private river beach. Water cascades over rocks forming a small waterfall into a clear, sandy-bottom pool that is home to water striders, fish, frogs, and salamanders. Every spring, burnt-orange newts entwine in sensual mating rituals in the creek. Foxes, raccoons, and deer steal down to drink, and Yellow Warblers sing in the trees; alders, willows, bays, buckeyes, redwoods, and live oaks; that border the creek. Lawns, wedding sites, and ornamental; vegetable gardens, team with color and life. The landscaped and manicured areas with sculptures, bird feeders, and benches, instill feelings of peace and harmony. Here guests can relax with a book while butterflies and hummingbirds visit the flowers in the garden.
