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 North Coast California

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.

Wonderful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a great place to unwind and enjoy hikes in the redwood forest or take a small hike or drive to one of the many beaches along the coast. We enjoyed a quiet night amidst the towering trees, sitting in the hottub and enjoying local brews. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to unwind and enjoy an escape from a busy world.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing and beautiful! Seals on shell beach were my fave . We're fairly well traveled and this area ranks high in our favorites.

The drive to Chandelier Tree was high raising for us Kansas flat landers!! Be advised the businesses close early, by 7 on average.

Pictures of the cabin don't give it justice. The view of the ocean for us actually had sand/ beach. Definitely recommended! Trinks in Gualala is great. $3 wine in store - awesome!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

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. :)

Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

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!

Secluded Getaway in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

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"
