Boulder Creek Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)
Just one block from the historic town of Boulder Creek in the heart of California’s coastal redwood forest, the Historic Hartman House offers a sunny cottage to call home that is the perfect place for your dream vacation. The Hartman House property is featured in 'Historic Homes of Boulder Creek.'
The Cottage (sleeps up to 6 adults) is a lovely home with an open floor plan perfect for families or couples traveling on a budget. It offers 1 QUEEN bed and 2 FULL sofa sleepers (each sleeper is an actual mattress on a wood frame when pulled out). You will find our cottage located on 1/2 acre in a Victorian farm setting through our heirloom fruit orchard and organic vegetable garden. In addition, there is a great meadow/ lawn area for play or simply relaxing under the apple trees. There is also RV and off street parking and private access to this cottage for ease.
Historic Down Town Boulder Creek is only one block away where you will find many fine restaurants, cafes, antique shops and clothing stores. Book yourself a spa treatment after your fine dining experience, retire to your cottage for a glass of wine and awake refreshed for a walk through Big Basin State Park, where the redwoods grow to 350 feet! On cool nights, snuggle up in front of our vintage wood burning stove (controlled by a thermostat) with a magnificent glass of local wine. Wine tasting, antique hunting, beach combing, and a wealth of outdoor activities—Santa Cruz County has much to offer.
Whether you stay right here in the San Lorenzo Valley or venture to the nearby cities of Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Jose or San Francisco, consider us your home away from home.

About The Owner
In 2004 I started restoring the property right back to its period of significance (1896). While the process was taking place, the locals would come and view the progress and I'd eagerly share my enthusiasm for preservation. I kept getting asked if I'd ever consider opening a bed and breakfast as the cottage was so lovely, they'd like their relatives to stay with me when they came to visit. When the cottage was finished, I could barely keep people away! Having innkeepers in the family already, it was an easy transition to share my property with others. I have had guests come from as far as the UK and as close as 1 mile away. When your guest walks into your establishment for the first time and sighs, 'Wow...it's beautiful'...there is nothing more rewarding!

Why The Owner chose Boulder Creek
Historic Boulder Creek is a great example of 'Main Street America' where you can enjoy that small town feel yet you are just minutes away from major cities and attractions. We are located in a world class wine tasting region. We also have great family events like music festivals, parades, and Santa makes a special trip here every year! It's one of the Bay Area's best kept secrets!
