A Historic Treasure in Summerland
Back in the day, and before the railroad came through this sleepy little town, it was the horse drawn stagecoach that brought visitors to this sweet beachside community on the central coast. Originally built in 1889, Summerland Stagecoach Cottage is nestled in downtown Summerland and to this day is one of the oldest homes in the area.
Bright and full of charm, there is no better location to begin a great beachside getaway. Not only is it possible to park and walk everywhere but Lookout Park and Summerland Beach are just one short block from the doorstep!
Updated for today’s standards, the home still maintains the charm of its historic roots with the graceful porch welcoming visitors. Relax in the Adirondack chairs and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or tea — a great way to start your day and plan the day’s activities.
Step into the cozy Living Room — a perfect spot to gather around the flat screen TV, or, curl up near the bay window with a good book. With a library of books, everything from history to current literary choices has been provided.
The cottage features a brand new Kitchen that is not only efficient, but also spacious and a joy in which to cook. Just off the Kitchen is a Laundry Room with a washer and dryer, and guests can also find beach chairs, beach umbrella and boogie boards — everything needed for a fun day at the beach.
The Dining Room table seats 6 and is a great spot to enjoy home-cooked meals. Sunny for breakfast and lovely in the evening, as well, this area is warm and welcoming. Local art adorns the walls and various art and found pieces reflect the “stagecoach” theme throughout the home.
The Master Bedroom has a king-size bed and features a flat screen TV. The second Bedroom features a queen-size bed and large window, making this room bright and sunny. A bathroom with a claw foot tub shower combination is just off the second Bedroom.
The enclosed back yard features a terraced yard with a lawn and rose garden. Relax in the double chaise, or, gather around the patio table while barbecuing your favorite meal. Just off of the back yard is an outdoor shower — a convenient feature rinse off sandy kids after a day at the beach!
Downtown Summerland offers so many options to explore on foot with great casual restaurants, boutiques and antique shops. Meander down Lillie Avenue to a locals’ favorite, The Nugget, and enjoy their signature “Crunch Burger” and a cold beverage while sitting amongst memorabilia of the area and locals who frequent this beloved establishment!
