  • Beauty Ranch Meadow
"I am a great dreamer, but I dream of my ranch, of my wife. I dream of beautiful horses and fine soil. I dream of the beautiful things I own up in Sonoma county. And I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty that now belongs to me. "
- Jack London 1913

Jack London and his wife Charmian lived in the Cottage from approximately 1911 until his death in 1916. The Cottage and its adjacent stone kitchen date from the 1860s and were built by the Kohler and Frohling Winery. The Cottage was restored in 2006 and furnished with artifacts and furniture to appear as it was when the Londons lived there. The Cottage is open noon to 4 pm and the fee is $3 per adult, children age 12 and under enter for free.
