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 hiker (former trail runner) who loves to 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.

Tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to spend a quiet weekend. The house is in great shape, has tons of natural light, and the porch is a lovely place for a calm breakfast. The hot tub is cozy and is a great place to spend a cool morning or evening. Gary is incredibly thorough in communication and all of his directions and instructions are clear. Thanks so much!

Peaceful is the perfect description for staying in the Redwood Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing time. It was just what we were hoping it would be. We weren't quite sure what the hike-in would involve. But we actually found that this added to the overall serenity of the area. Also truly enjoyed all the charming coastal cottage decor all throughout the cabin!

Perfect Cottage for a Quiet Weekend for 2

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two night stay at Redwood Cottage! Gary was an excellent host and great communicator - could not have been easier to work with. The cottage is exactly as described and is perfect for a couple trying to escape the city. Kitchen had all of the things you need to cook yourself; we ate every meal outside overlooking the forest and sea (in the distance). The hot tub and skylight were awesome! Also really enjoyed the walking trails around The Sea Ranch. Thank you, Gary, for a weekend to remember!
