If Pescadero was the recipe for a popular resort, here’s a list of its good ingredients:
Healthfulness: The ocean breezes were well advertised.
Location: Close enough to ride the stage, far enough away to feel secluded.
Sightseeing: Ride horseback into the mountains or down to the seashore. Within a two mile radius, enjoy magnificent pine and redwood forests, rocky canyons, brilliant green hills, babbling brooks and spectacular vistas.
Recreation: Excellent trout and ocean fishing; hunting. For the artist with an interest in the botanical–a great variety of sea moss, shells, ferns, and flowers.
Special Places To Visit: Breathtaking Butano Falls, and a secret cave on upper Butano Creek; Angel’s Roost, an enchanting grove of redwoods; Singing Beach, so-called for the friction of sand and water, resulting in a pleasant humming sound, and highly recommended, an educational tour of Pigeon Point Lighthouse.
Famous “Magical” Attraction: Pebble Beach, south of Pescadero.
