The Dake House as it is known in the Santa Cruz Historic Registry, was built in 1904 by Clarence Dake with the generous support of his wife’s family money. He was a gentleman farmer and started the first escrow/title business in Santa Cruz. The house sits on a hill overlooking the town of Santa Cruz, the mission and the sweeping views of the Monterey Bay and the Boardwalk. While High Street is centrally located of the main routes to UCSC, most of the 2/3 acre property is surrounded by nature. Red tail hawks soar and perch in the tall trees, deer regularly come by to graze, and the hummingbirds love all the salvias in the garden.
The "Peach Room" is cozy and peaceful room with a firm, comfortable queen bed on an iron frame. Located on the second floor, on N/E side of the house, the room has 10’ coved ceilings, antique lighting, antique desk and dresser, a mini refrigerator in the closet, and a chair. The room is a few steps away from a bathroom with shower/toilet and sink.
This is one bedroom in a 5 bedroom house and the house, including kitchen, most bathrooms, living room, decks, will be shared with other guests and myself. Please see "Guest Access" below.
