Our "Saw Mill Lodge" weekend vacation home is in Pescadero, on the San Mateo coast halfway between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz.  We are three miles inland and 900 feet above sea level, which puts us above the coastal fog bank most of the time. When the fog is gone we have an ocean view from our back deck.  The property is 60 acres, about two thirds of which are timberland.   The 6-bedroom 7-bath casual ranch-style house had been operated as a bed-and-breakfast before we bought it in 2001.

This was the site of an operating saw mill until the 1930's, but little evidence of that remains except the stumps of the giant redwood trees that were logged.  We maintain many of the old logging skid roads as hiking trails.
