La Casa Del Amour was built with all locally harvested and milled lumber. This custom home/cabin has a supply of all natural spring water that percolates to the surface of the ground. Natural spring water is rarely available, but due to the age of the spring it has been grandfathered in and is the source of water for both the home and salon next door, a historic building called River's Salon at the Raspberry Cottage.
The home was built for Ha 'River' Mix, who passed away last year due to a sudden and unexpected aneurysm. She was an organ donor and donated five organs to five families on the east coast. River died in Mission hospital. She left behind her salon, which is continuing under her name River's Salon just around the corner on highway 64. A book was written in her honor available on Amazon called ' Organ Donor Handbook ' by Buddy Mix.
The home has 8' thick walls and is very quite when inside. On the back deck is a charcoal barbecue and outside the lower story is a fire pit for camp fire nights with friends.
Buddy and Ha lived in the home two years before deciding to move back to the Salon next door where they lived while building the home in order to offer it for vacationers. Every carpenter and worker was told to nail every nail and cut every board with love because Buddy was building it for his wife Ha River Mix. As time wore on it became known has the house of love or La Casa Del Amour.
Buddy will erect a memorial stone in honor of River's passing, which will be placed overlooking the natural spring pond below the upper story of the home. In the bottom of this small canyon is a platform that Buddy envisions will serve, one day, as an amphitheater venue for musical artists, plays like Shakespeare, and/or space for small weddings.
River insisted on the home being built 'rustic' style with straight cut boards As a result La Casa Del Amour has a flavor and quality unlike any other home here in the mountains. We know you will enjoy the work and effort River and Buddy put into this custom home with love.
