This property was given to my husband and I by my Auntie Sis in 2002. My husband and I have completely remodeled the entire cabin keeping the cabin feeling. My Aunt purchased this property in 1952, my family spent most of our summers there. My Aunt gave us the property because I loved it so much and she knew we would take care of it. My husband and I live 50 minutes away, so it's a great weekend get away for us. As our children got older and moved away it gets harder and harder to get up to the cabin. So, We decided we would share our cabin with others.

Kathy Stuchlik purchased this cabin in 1952

This property is nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains just a short ride to many attractions. It is close to the Santa Cruz Beach Board Walk, Monterey, Roaring Camp Rail Road, Sea Bright Beach, Mystery Spot, Carmel, and the Silicon Valley. It's approximate 37 miles from the San Jose International Air Port.

I Love this propery because of the serenity of the red woods and the oak trees. It is a tranquil place to feel at peace with nature. Because I was raised partially at this cabin it is like my second home. In the morning and the evening I can sit on the porch and watch the deer cross the property. The smell of the red woods is sweet. In the evenings you can enjoy a fire by the fire pit. I like to roast marshmallows with the grand kids in the fire pit.

There were Christmas decorations, lights, a tree, and s'mores waiting for us upon our arrival. The whole family enjoyed the warmth and many indoor and outdoor seating arrangements. Thanks for making our visit so wonderful.

The cabin is very cute and clean with tons of little extras, like movies, cooking utensils, smore's fixings (a huge hit with all of us), etc. Very helpful. Everything was ready and exactly as described. The neighbor's dogs come and say hello each morning (very friendly) and we watched the deer grazing in the mornings while we had our breakfast. It was so peaceful, especially at night.

The only downsides were that the only bathroom is downstairs - you have to go outside to get to it from upstairs and that the roads to the property are very narrow, steep, and winding and not very clearly marked (however the neighbors provided directions once when we were unsure of which road and we got there fine).

Overall, we loved our stay and would rent here again in a heartbeat!

Amazing place to stay

I found this place to be exceptional. All of the necessary items were there, and a few that were very, very unexpected. When we arrived and entered the dining room, the kids found a "smores kit" just for them. You can't even imagine the surprise and amazement on their faces. This was an extremely kid-friendly place. I had a really hard time loading the kids up to leave, and they're already asking to come back. My husband and I plan to return on our own for a restful mini vacation. This place is perfectly suited for a family getaway or a couples retreat. This is going to become our "go to" place from now on.

Wonderful stay in the redwoods

My husband, our 2 year old and I live in San Francisco and wanted a short, simple vacation in nature that didn't involve camping. This cabin was perfect! The whole place is stocked with items you might need: condiments, utensils, toiletries, etc., and even fun extras such as wine, popcorn and ingredients for s'mores -- which we took full advantage of! There's isn't cable but the owners -- who were lovely to deal with -- provide an extensive selection of DVDs.

The location is beautiful and easy to enjoy outside from the deck, outside table or hammock. Our daughter was thrilled to see the play set in the back and she slept comfortably in the detached second bedroom. I didn't love that the bathroom is also located in this space, which is downstairs and detached from the main house, but it was really no problem.

We are hoping to return next year!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you liked the cabin and the little extra things. Am also glad your daughter liked the play house my grand kids and their friends have spent many hours playing on it. I've tried to stock the cabin with things I'd like to have at a get away so I won't have to take to many things or won't have to run out and buy stuff that I wouldn't use up and have to take home. Thanks for the great review. Kathy

charming, peaceful redwoods mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We stayed here for 3 days in early July and had a great time! Everything was just as described, and the cabin was full of nice touches to make sure we had a comfortable stay (smores, firewood, coffee and hot chocolate, all the kitchen essentials, a selection of DVDs). The view out the main bedroom is just beautiful in the morning, and the kids loved the playground. It is a long, curvy, sometimes narrow road up to the cabin... not too bad, but we found ourselves planning our days to minimize the number of trips up the mountain, and to get back before dark. It is very close to the Henry Cowell Redwoods state park, which was wonderful, and a short drive to Santa Cruz.
