pristine, canopy-level get away

  • 4 of 5

We came here to hike in the redwoods to Fern Canyon and this is the perfect "home-base" for that. The space is clean, lots of light, great kitchen, private, and very comfortable. We saw no one while we were there.

Carole, the owner, has everything in order, well-stocked with basics and she is available by phone if need be.

It is probably not appropriate for very young kids who might find the inside ladders to the loft sleeping places much too much fun to climb. And, there is some noise from the road.

It is a great place.

Wonderful cabin close to hiking trails.

We had a wonderful stay at this homey cabin which was very close to hiking trails. We got to watch some deer eating in the yard.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. Right in the middle of everything. Loved seeing the elk in the front yard. The views from the windows were amazing. The place is stocked with more than everything you need. There is some road noise from 101 but it did not bother us. Carole was very prompt and helpful answering questions. There is no photo of the bathroom but I can tell you that it is big, very nice, with plenty of hot water for multiple people's showers. The layout of the place is unconventional. The bathroom is with the main bedroom. The lofts are accessible with very steep ship ladders. The ceilings in the lofts are lower and slanted. It's worked out fine for us (two adults in 50's and two teens) but it's definitely not a layout that will work for everyone. The wifi was not that great but I kind of expected that in the rural setting.

Quaint farmhouse centrally located in Redwood Forest.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time there and would recommend. Nice hiking trails are really close as well as the best viewing areas for elk.

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time! The location was absolutely perfect (more perfect than we originally thought when we booked). It is literally across the highway from Trillium Falls and only 8 miles from Fern Canyon. Gorgeous and relaxing scenery. Carole was great about answering my questions in a timely manner. The farmhouse was clean and comfortable. My boys loved climbing up into the loft area (although I will say the ladders are very steep as mentioned in the description. My only suggestion would be to add a railing, but that's probably me being overprotective). :-) The satellite dish did not work for us, but it wasn't a big deal because we were there to enjoy the surrounding nature. Such a perfect and beautiful spot!
