  • Any excuse to maintain an old building is a good excuse. California has so few old buildings - take a few minutes to walk around in this one.

  • Charming building where Robert Louis Stevenson lived for three and a half months in 1879. There’s a lovely, quiet garden in the back that’s great for a peaceful sit down. The major downside is that the building is open only April through October, that too only on Saturdays, and that too only 1-4pm. Nevertheless, worth a visit if you love Stevenson and wish to have a blissful hour in a nice backyard garden.
  • Beautifully kept structure and grounds. Nice docent and the site is very accessible. There is a colorful story behind this site and Mr. Stevenson, I'll leave it to the reader to go find it out.
