About Gary Gallaher

We had visited The Sea Ranch many times over the years and wanted to come more often.

We purchased the Redwood Cottage in 1998, spent some time putting our imprint on it and have enjoyed sharing it with many visitors since then.

Gary Gallaher purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Gary Gallaher chose Sea Ranch

The 'walk-in cabins' are a unique group of small but well designed homes with a minimal footprint in keeping with the original Sea Ranch concept of living lightly on the land. Each is surrounded by 'commons' rather than having lots which are contiguous with their neighbors.

They have everything you need in one open space, plus a loft for sleeping.

When we had visited The Sea Ranch we typically stayed in one of the conventional Sea Ranch houses. They were lovely, but we kept thinking all we need is 'a little cabin in the woods' .

When we learned about these unique homes it just seemed right for us.

What makes this cottage unique

Waking up to see the towering redwoods through two huge skylights is always amazing.

One of us is a runner and hiker who loves to run/hike the many trails right from the cabin.

One of us enjoys the peacefulness of the forest with the ocean in sight.

We both look forward to relaxing in the spa and watching the stars overhead.

A short drive takes us to easy access to the bluff trail to be close to the always changing ocean.

Rustic and natural, yet warm, comfortable and well appointed

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is very clean and well maintained. At first I didn't think the wood stove inspired gas heater was going to be enough to heat the place, but I was pleasantly surprised how quickly everything warmed up. The kitchen is super clean and well stocked with just about everything you could need. The spa is a little on small side; probably only big enough for two. But since there was just myself and my fiancee, it was perfect. I will definitely be recommending this cabin to friends and family!

A terrific getaway spot...

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully maintained property; responsive owners. Comfortable, well-lighted; windows everywhere plus 2 large skylights in bedroom made this feel like a treehouse in the midst of the redwoods. View of the ocean in a slice through the trees.

A hike down to the bluffs overlooking the ocean in Sea Ranch. Walkable despite an uphill climb back.

Peaceful secluded area in a lovely setting. If you want some time away from the bustle of everyday life, this is a great choice!

Charming and a true Sea Ranch gem

  • 5 of 5
So many of the Sea Ranch properties no longer feel like cabins, but generic homes that could be found anywhere. I suppose that many individuals want only luxury with their vacay, but we wanted the true essence of Sea Ranch. This walk-in cabin is part of the award winning cabins architecturally designed by Obie Bowman, and it still retains all the charm and thoughtfulness of a well-designed abode in the woods.

We loved playing games at the table with a view, we loved the cute lighthouse theme, and we adored being woken by the morning sun. We hiked the redwoods, the beach and the meadows; we hit the Gualala artist's studio tour and found some gems to bring home (never too early for Xmas presents!) and we hit Ft. Ross on the way home for a piece of Northern CA history. As for the amenities; the spa was fabulous, the bed and pillows comfy, and the kitchen well apportioned.

There is a NY Times article titled "Utopia by the Sea" we found, and wondered if the writer was referencing this cabin. Overall we adored this place, and plan to be back! Soon.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased when out guests not only enjoy the Redwood Cottage, but take advantage of the other things The Sea Ranch has to offer.

The NY Times writer stayed several iconic homes around The Sea Ranch. She did indeed choose our cabin as the representative of the Walk-in Cabins.

Peaceful Retreat

This beautiful cottage is exactly what we had in mind for our anniversary weekend! Very well kept and simple, yet fully functional for 2 or 4 people. We will definitely book this again if it's available!

Enchanted Cottage in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated my birthday at this architectural gem nestled amongst the redwoods. We enjoyed everything about the experience: cooking breakfast in the kitchen, relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, reading all of the interesting books/guides on Sea Ranch provided by the owner, and watching the stars from the skylight over the bed. The cottage was centrally located with an ocean and forest view—the best of both worlds, with walking trails literally right at the doorstep. Although we didn't get to meet the owners in person, they were a pleasure to communicate with and it was evident by the cozy, well-maintained cottage that they had put a lot of love and effort into making it a truly welcoming and unforgettable space. I highly recommend the Redwood Cottage for a magical experience in nature. It doesn't get any better than that.

This cottage was really what it says in the description-a little house in the woods that is close to the ocean. We loved the quiet, the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and cooking utensils and easy to use, the skylight in the bedroom was wonderful, and the trails at Sea Ranch were terrific. We loved the walks above the ocean and loved watching the seals, and dinner one night at Sea Ranch was a fun treat. It was great to be in such a serene spot. We will return and I have already recommended it to friends. The owner was very responsive both before the trip and while we were staying there. I loved not paying a big cleaning fee too and we were able to clean the cottage easily. I highly recommend it!
