This circa 1896 retreat was the site of the historic Wake Robin Lodge, owned by author Jack London’s agent. In 1903, London was writing “The Sea Wolf” and accepted an invitation to spend the summer here. It was this life-changing summer that cemented his love for the Valley of the Moon and his agent’s niece and future wife, Charmian. The Londons made their home at Wake Robin Lodge where an annex had been built for their use. The tree stump grove where London wrote and performed readings remain on the property today. Own a piece of history and experience laid back living in wine country. Historic towns, restaurants, wineries, shops and recreational activities are just a stone’s throw away. About 1 hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge.
