Ryan – October 2018

“John was very welcoming, helpful, and very respectful of our privacy. The commons is a shared property with the owners living onsite, in separate homes, however it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. They are in the process of adding additional shared facilities like an outdoor kitchen and sauna/spa area, which will be absolutely amazing when completed. The cabin is very peaceful, with great energy, and the photos do not do it justice at all. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the kitchen, bathroom, etc. were well stocked.”

Teri – October 2018

“Loved the artsy cabin with it’s woodstove, comfortable bed and hot shower. John and Janet were just right – there if needed but respectful of privacy. My dog Ty loved romping with Zoey. John and Janet are building an awesome green house with round doors and stone details – a true work of art. I definitely will return if in the area.”

“I was immediately impressed with the relaxing surroundings, the land that the cabin sits on adds to experience quite a bit . I was pleasantly surprised by how the owner was easily contacted if needed but yet never seen nor intrusive on our need for privacy. The cabin was furnished with everything we could have needed as well as some extra special touches like herbal teas and grind your own coffee . A fully stocked kitchen allowed me to cook when I wanted to and the location of cabin allowed us to dine out easily and conveniently if desired. I work 7 days a week and only get about 3-4 days off a year (if I’m lucky) so when I get any time off I want to spend it with my wife in as relaxing a place as possible this cabin and the land it’s sits on and it’s location in relation to town and beach and conveniences makes it very possible for me to relax and enjoy my time off. I would highly recommend this as a vacation spot or even a weekend getaway . And our dog loved it! She played with Zoey (the owners dog) until she could barely walk. We will return My wife hit that one out the park picking this cabin, that was one of my favorite vacations in my life. I’ve never really taken vacations as an adult , I don’t know why except that maybe my mind has always been more set on work than vacation. One of the most awesome benefits of this anniversary weekend is that it totally made me want to make this a more regular part of our lives. Thank you John!

“Rich and Joey were wonderful hosts. They were very friendly and opened there home to us. We all really enjoyed the art room and library, the gardens were beautiful, it was a pleasure to walk around and enjoy the wonderful yard that they have put a lot of personal touches to. The bungalow was very clean, plenty of room, we were able to use the kitchen to cook a couple full meals while we were there. The beautiful trees and outdoors was a bonus to wake up to every morning. Would definitely love to come back.”

Lauri – November 2018

“Loved our stay at the bungalow! The property is a gated forest oasis featuring a garden, chicken coop, rope swing, a library, and more. The bungalow itself one big room with a cozy gas fireplace.. A great home base from which to explore the redwoods, or just to hole up in and read. Wish we had more than a weekend!”

Frank – January 2019

“We had a fantastic stay at Joey and Richard’s Garden Bungalow! It was a short drive from many fantastic restaurants, hikes, and so much more, yet still felt secluded in redwood trees. The bungalow was clean and had everything we needed. We’ll definitely return the next time we’re looking for a wonderful escape in the redwoods.”

Judy – October 2018

“This place was awesome! The hosts greeted us when we arrived and gave us some information on local places to eat. They were so polite and the Airbnb is incredible! We had a great time visiting the redwoods and would recommend this place to anyone!!! You will be pleasantly surprised the positive vibe that you get from staying here. The property is surrounded by beautiful big trees. They even have chickens and ducks as well. Thank you so much for sharing this treasure with us!”

“Spending the weekend in Calder and Tanya’s lovely cottage in the redwoods was absolutely wonderful! Their gorgeous handcrafted cottage was exactly as presented on their page listing. Being surrounded by the stately, historic redwoods was serene and the healing energy of their lovely space was absolutely stunning. From the moment I arrived, every aspect was welcoming, gracious and inviting. Absolutely encouraging anyone who would like to be immersed in the serenity of such a beautiful space and place, please know I was thrilled with every single detail of our stay. Just a few minutes from both Arcata and Eureka, one felt enveloped by the silence and energy of being in the country and surrounded by such majestic beauty!”

Nico – May 2018

“This is officially one of my favorite places I’ve ever stayed. Immediately felt like a home away from home, and the outdoor tub is one of the most peaceful things I’ve ever experienced. All the pups are so sweet and so are the people residing here.”

Cada – December 2018

“I love this spot. Its deliciously quiet in this sweet little cottage tucked up under the edge of the redwoods. The location is really lovely and I could feel and see the love and care that the various inhabitants of this wee community are giving to the land they share. I wanted to stay longer but it was a busy work time for me and this was a working weekend so I was gone during the days. I fantasize about staying here for a pure personal retreat some time and enjoying the place in a more leisurely manner.”
