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.

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.
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.
I spent my 30th birthday in Sea Ranch and had a wonderful time. The cabin had character and kept very clean. The area is very quiet. I enjoyed the short walks to the beaches, hiking and biking on the trails. Everyone in the area was very welcoming. We never needed to turn on the TV but sleep in while looking up at the stars at night from the bedroom ceiling. Having a cup of coffee in front if the window watching nature and the ocean view. The hot tub worked perfectly. No need for a higher pulse, but felt very smoothing from a long day of walking and exploring. I defiantly would come back here again and recommend anyone who is looking to get away or passing by.
Once again, thank you for your hospitality and allowing me to experience a wonderful time. I did not look forward to coming back home. :)
The place was just as described. Very quiet, and relaxing. Everything that anyone would need. The trail system at Sea Ranch is great. The view of the ocean was better than we expected.
We had a wonderful time at this redwood-surrounded two-story home. Loved looking at the view of the water from the inside table or from the deck and the view of the trees from the upstairs bedroom or the hot tub are great! Kitchen had everything we needed. The bathroom is downstairs so you do have to navigate carefully at night but there is good lighting to use. We would return!
One of the Best Places from our recent stays. The Cabin makes you feel like you are so close to nature. Surrounded by Beautiful Redwood trees,Ocean Views and Skylights at night from the Bedroom makes it a Perfect Romantic Getaway. The Cottage is really kept well and clean. Wi-Fi works great. Plenty of information is provided about Hiking Trails and Places to Visit. Gary was so fast in responding to my inquiries about hiking trails and restaurants near by. We dined at Trinks Cafe and Bakery at Gulala which was just 5 miles with some nice views and good food. We cant wait to be back. " HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
Redwood Cottage at Sea Ranch provided a perfect place for our anniversary get away. Unpacked the car, drove it to the nearby parking lot and left it until it was time to leave. The home provided a clean, comfortable, and pleasant location to read, visit or do nothing but stare out the abundant windows at the ocean or surrounding forest. The skylights in the loft delivered a view of the stars at night and beauty of the forest trees during the day, all from the comfort and warmth of bed. Thanks to the provided maps, we took full advantage of the plentiful and well-marked sea ranch trails and easily found our way down to the ocean. The two-person hot tube was welcoming but lacked the intense rumbly jets one is accustomed to. This is most likely an intentional attribute to minimize noise, which aside from the wind through the trees, birdcalls, and perhaps an occasional barking from a seal were blissfully absent. Will recommend to friends and family.
We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our first wedding anniversary - was perfect! Was quiet, felt private (even though other cottages are close) and extremely relaxing (spa helped with that!). The cottage is very well kept and clean, and had loads if information about the area and things to do. Highly recommended if keen to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days - already looking forward to going back!
Renters have access to all Sea Ranch facilities which are available only to owners and guests/renters. The facilities include 3 pools, saunas, tennis counts and many miles of well maintained private hiking trails, both near the ocean and though the redwood and pine/fir forests.
