Many guests have shared about the joyful hours spent around this custom table. Three very large master bedrooms, each with its own individually controlled heating source. One bedroom is on the main level and two upstairs all with king beds. The downstairs has an attached bath featuring a large shower. The upstairs west facing room has a view of the ocean through the pine trees. The bathroom just outside the door has a full sized shower and would be shared with the bunk bed room. The upstairs east-facing bedroom is quieter and the attached bathroom has a six-foot tub with hand sprayer. All bathrooms include a hair dryer and close up mirror. A cozy little bunk bed room upstairs includes a trundle. Both upstairs bedrooms have TVs, closets and dressers. Additional sleeping is available on the sofa sleeper and rollaway bed. The ocean front deck, extra large and nestled under the pines, can accommodate twelve for outdoor dining. Up to six people can watch the ocean waves while luxuriating in the hot tub. Check out our pictures for the uniquely designed convertible table-benches. Just below the deck, a cedar log Philosopher's Bench faces the ocean for quiet contemplation. The sheltered south facing deck is next to a built-in river rock barbeque grill and is good for sunbathing. Look, you can see the ocean waves breaking right outside your window now... we welcome you to our home and hope you create many treasured memories at Sheltering Pines.
