Search for the Red Adirondack Chair


Lake and Coast Real Estate invites you to participate in our quarterly contest for the QUEST for the hidden Red Adirondack chair. Be the first to find it and receive a $250 gift certificate to Lake San Marcos Country Club where you can enjoy fine dining or shop in the pro shop. 

This is an ongoing contest with quarterly winners. Monthly clues will be provided on this website, on our company website: lakeandcoastrealestate.com, on MyLSM.com, and in the local Lake San Marcos newsletter (The Quail Call). We will continue until some lucky and clever resident finds the chair, at which time we will gladly present them with the gift certificate, and then, guess what? We will start the contest over again until the hidden chair is found, in another location of course. And, we will extend this fun and exciting event until we run out of hiding places. Once you find the chair please call Heide Warren, 760-803-6177.

Dust out your monocles and be prepared to compete with Holmes, Rockford, and Spade. Hurry, don't let your neighbor beat you to it!


* Realtors and their families are not eligible for the contest or prize. 
Hint...Chair is toy-sized. Not meant to be used as a seat.


1) Contest: WINNER: Mike Allen and his grandchildren Ellie and Hudson found in the ground cover underneath the fountain next to the yogurt shop.

2) WINNER Lisa PInes found the red chair without a single clue. It just happened that she was hiding birdseed in the Hawthorne bush where the chair had been securely hidden and tied to the trunk of the bush. WOW! One lucky lady and she was 'thrilled' to be a winner and enjoy the gift certificate to the Country Club.


3) WINNER: Tom Coleman and his family found it. They had the tenacity to go onto our website before the next Quail Call newsletter came out to get ahead of the competition. And after searching for 3 days once they reviewed the clues, consulted with their friends, and finally decided a possible place. The almost drove by before it finally clicked. It was hidden in the knot of a huge tree near the 16th tee box. WOW!

Fourth Contest Winner: Elizabeth Laister and her daughter and granddaughter. The chair was hidden under the 4 palms trees at the entrance to the Lake that formed the big letter "W".


Fifth Contest Winner: Jill Rosenow & Lisa Guertin



Sixth Contest: First  set of clues.

We are back on the big golf course side  again

Not much of a clue to actually win

So head towards the golf course going south towards the cross

And up the hill where the avocados grow

It is wide open territory with no luck of a coin toss

And certainly with this wonderful weather not a hint of snow

We promise to give more definitive clues in the next Quail Call

So be on the lookout, continue to enjoy the fun and have a ball.

Sixth Contest: Second set of clues.

There is a House in New Orleans

Some say walkers are not well seen

No fish to catch nor swans a swimming

Not buried there but the place needs a trimming.

Sixth Contest: Third set of clues.

Up the road , keep going,  past the curve

Please drive careful, don't want to swerve

In a bush by a driveway, may be oleander

eyes watching traffic, definitely don't meander.

Sixth Contest:  Fourth set of Clues:

You could be inspired by the "Panorama" below.

Follow the meandering path very slow, where the "apples" grow very low

You may find a red chair in lushness below.

Sixth Contest: Fifth set of Clues:

When thinking of apples don't think of the ones you eat.

Rather think of the ones that make your ground cover easy to care for and neat.

The chair is nestled under a shrub or a tree.

So you can relax and enjoy the western breeze.

Sixth Contest:  6th set of Clues

Oh, we Lake residents are very clever,

But our fine little feathered & hopping friends are much better.

One of them beat us to the punch

And must have eaten the chair for lunch.

We will start the challenge again.

When the New Year begins.

"Heide Warren was absolutely phenomenal as our real estate agent! We were in a family crisis and she took care of everything so smoothly. We didn\'t stress one minute over our transaction. She went way beyond helping us, even after we had rented the condo. She is energetic, enthusiastic and works tirelessly for her clients. We would highly recommend Heide to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent." Greg & Daryl Sacks
"We want to extend our sincere thanks to Heide Warren for all of her real estate expertise. She immediately listened to what we needed and supported us with our goal. When our first contract fell through, Heide held our hands and quickly led us to the right spot for us. She advocated for us with the escrow company, knowing that time was of the essence since our first contract had not worked out. She again advocated with the very nervous seller....and it all worked out. It was a pleasure to work with Heide and we highly recommend her to everyone." Barb. & Bill Dodge
