We designed and constructed this unique 2-level Craftsman lodge-like home ourselves in 1978. Every rock, board and shingle was chosen and placed with our own hands. The rocks and boulders had to be dug out for the foundation. We even had to blast a 'ledge' (translation: a rock as big as the mountain!) to pour the lower floor concrete. You can see why we christened it 'Rocky Top'. We had planned to make this our home, but family obligations delayed our plans. After years of being leased-out (even sold and then reclaimed) we have renovated, decorated and restored this gem to share with you. Like many people Linda, an avid interior decorator, dreamed of owning a B&B. This is probably as close as she will get. Our family and friends traveled up from the Los Angeles area a few days every week for a year to work on this restoration. Richard, now a retired general contractor, turned the business over to our son who did the heavy lifting and electrical. Our neighbor, a retired plumber, graciously gave many hours to the project. Linda had great fun pulling the parts and pieces together. The talents of family members are showcased in the many custom artworks and stained glass windows throughout the lodge.
ROCKY TOP feels like a world away tucked into the middle of the forest. All told we've probably spent the best years of our lives constructing, furnishing and landscaping this dream property...while having the times of our lives!!! We invite you to come enjoy the clear blue skies, clean fresh air and the thrill of sighting the occasional Condor soaring high overhead. In spring stroll down our wooded path and smell the fragrant lilacs. Sit in the log swing and listen to the wind whisper in the pines. A few days on the mountain is more restful for us than a two-week vacation. We're sure it will be the same for you. Come on up to ROCKY TOP - we'd love to share our dream-come-true with you!!!
