LITTLEHOUSE IN THE REDWOODS

Big Sur House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Only god can make a tree. Probably because it's so hard to get the bark on. Woody Allen.

Sweet dreams are made of this...

Who am I to disagree?

Travel the world and the seven seas,

Everybody's looking for something.

The Eurythmics

The Littlehouse is located less than 10 minutes off of Highway One, and is accessible by a good road in all seasons. It is situated in a redwood forest in a canyon along a tumbling stream. Pleasantly isolated, it enjoys sunny days and cool nights. Its amenities, delightful furnishings, full kitchen, gas fireplace, luxurious bed and bath, generous closet area, private deck, are appropriate for either short or long term visits. Coastal and forest hiking trails and scenic beaches are nearby. Carmel with its delightful shops and many restaurants is a short drive away as is the Big Sur Village, Nepenthe and Pfeiffer Beach . Simply a delight.

Marketing these days is too much with us. Flowery modifiers, lyrically poetic descriptions, vivid adjectives wash over us all day, everyday. I can't take it. Just know that the LittleHouse is a special lodging in a beautiful place.

AMAZING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, AND TRULY UNIQUE!!!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved every second spent at The Littlehouse, I do not even know where to start this review. This place was a perfect getaway for a much needed relaxing yet exhilarating vacation. It was the perfect base camp for our amazing Big Sur adventure. Very romantic and secluded this hidden gem in the redwoods has everything needed for a wonderful and peaceful escape from reality. We were delighted upon arrival to see how impeccably clean and well-kept The Littlehouse was. The full kitchen has everything you could possibly need for preparing a home cooked meal. They have a great selection of DVDs both new and classics. There is no cell phone reception at The Littlehouse (or in most of the Big Sur area) but The Littlehouse has its own land line phone with unlimited calls both incoming and outgoing and free wireless internet. The bed is exceptionally comfortable and the bedding is clean and cozy. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the rippling nearby stream was so relaxing. The location is great about a ten minute drive off Hwy 1 on a rustic but well-kept road. Once you are on Hwy 1 you are only about 15 miles from Carmel and another five miles to Monterey. It is also a short drive from many other spectacular Big Sur destinations including Julia Pfeiffer, Point Lobos, Garrapata State Beach, Bixby Bridge, Nepenthe, and Deetjen's Restaurant. We stayed 5 days in May at The Littlehouse and were heartbroken when we had to leave. The owners were wonderful and even though they live on the property we only saw them when we checked in and then again when we checked out. It was nice to know that they were only a phone call away if we needed anything. They designed and built this place with such tremendous attention to detail and a great use of space. They also stocked the place with fresh eggs, bread, cheese, fruit preserves, milk and a full assortment of condiments for making a delicious first morning breakfast. There was also plenty of bottled water so no need to bring your own. One tip I have for future visitors is to pack lightly because there are quite a few stairs to get up to the little house. Really all you need is your clothes and some food everything else is provided for you. (We really over packed)
We really fell in love with The Littlehouse in the Redwoods and hope to make it back again someday. I would recommend this sublime little piece of heaven to anyone looking to have a unique, relaxing, romantic, and unforgettable Big Sur experience.

UNIQUE CANYON STAY

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a fabulous stay at the little but amazingly comfortable house deep in the canyon. We were astounded at Jerry's craftsmanship in contructing the entire house; the use of space was also perfect. Everything was high end and worked well -- shower, appliances, wonderfully comfortable bed. Though in a redwood canyon you are high in trees and have a great perch to survey the forest. Jerry is an excellent host always ready to assist, answer questions and recommend favourites (take up his suggestion for lunch at Ventana!). Only caution is that there is a long set of steps up to the house so it might be problematic for the less mobile. Overall, couldn't be a better place to relax and savour the Big Sur atmosphere.

LITTLEHOUSE PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Littlehouse in the Redwoods went above and beyond our expectations. Nestled away deep in the redwoods, Littlehouse is a gem amongst the spectacular nature atmosphere. The cabin is cozy, accommodating in every aspect with attention given to every detail. We were welcomed with a fridge stocked with bottled water, fresh eggs, jam and bread. The coffee and cream provided for the perfect start to our day. The Littlehouse location was perfect. Staying right in between Carmel and Big Sur was just what we needed. We felt one with nature. Honestly t I could go on and on :) We will definitely be staying here again and again. Enjoy!

PERFECT GETAWAY AT THE PERFECT LITTLEHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Littlehouse in the Redwoods was every bit as perfect as described in the listing and more! The house is beautiful, modern and very well-appointed. We chose to eat our dinners in and had everything we needed - from pots/pans, utensils, cooking oils, spices, etc. The scenery is gorgeous and really felt like we had our own little piece of heaven in the Redwoods for the weekend.

The owners are very accommodating (but also respectful of your privacy) and a great resource for suggestions on what to do in the area (dining out, hiking, shopping, etc.). They even supply you with a welcome binder with lots of information on activities in the area as well as the makings for a very satisfying breakfast for the next day. How great is that?!

What a wonderful way to decompress for a weekend with enough nearby to do as much or as little as you wish. I only wish we had stayed a couple more days. We will definitely return and would definitely recommend Littlehouse to anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay in the Big Sur/Carmel area.

BEAUTIFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Before we arrived at the Littlehouse for the first portion of our Honeymoon the owners were supremely accomodating with directions and recommendations in the area. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The owners were both generous (wine, breakfast items and even a special bottle of champagne to celebrate our wedding were provided) and respectful of privacy. They gave us everything we needed including freedom to roam. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, I can think of few places better. The winding portion of Highway One that passes through Big Sur and Carmel is a beautiful drive and never seems to get old. The littlehouse is accessed via a small road that disappears into the canyon. It takes about 10 minutes to get from the house to the highway. You’re really tucked away so you get a real experience of both the ocean and the Red Woods. Don’t miss Nepenthe. From the house it’s probably a 30 minute drive toward Big Sur just past Pfeiffer Beach. Beautiful food and atmosphere. Go at sunset.

THE PERFECT ROMANTIC GETAWAY, AWAY FROM EVERYTHING, IN A BEAUTIFUL PLACE ALL ITS OWN

  • 5 of 5
We spent hours trying to figure out where to stay in Big Sur for our honeymoon, We knew it would only happen once so we really wanted to feel like we were both not overspending and also staying in a place that we would love to remember forever. And LittleHouse did not disappoint. Jerry was very welcoming from day 1 and they have built a perfect getaway. It's a little off hwy 1 (15 minute drive and some of that is a dirt road) and a little north of Big Sur proper, but its proximity to Rocky Point (where you should grab lunches at least. We had a lunch, a stop in for a glass of wine, and a dinner there) make it close to the luxury it feels you are bathing in while you are staying in. LittleHouse is seriously the nicest place for the money you could possibly find in Big Sur. Our only hesitation in writing our glowing review was that we want the availability to be open for ourselves for whenever we want! We are already planning out next trip and have had discussions about making it annual thing. And I have no doubt that we could never find anything better. We absolutely love Big Sur, but there just really isn't a lot of affordable luxury there. You either have Fernwood on the low end or Ventana and the Post Ranch Inn. The only thing close to price-wise is Glen Oaks, and all you get is a hotel room. Beyond simply cost, LittleHouse is just beautiful. It's the perfect use of space, and feels much larger than it is because of how efficiently it is laid out and designed. The furnishings are superb. The kitchen is perfect. It feels like home, except we were in the middle of a lush redwood forest with a nearby stream. It is a gorgeous place and the perfect place for a couple in love. Believe me, we took our choice of honeymoon destinations very very seriously and LittleHouse far exceeded the very high expectations we had set for it. It is true gem, I dare you to find a better deal in Big Sur. It's just not possible.
