An Emerald in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

If I wanted to buy a romantic vacation home near Timber Cove, this would fit the bill. The home is very unique and is in a peaceful forest setting with lots of wildlife. The kitchen, bedroom, bathrooms, living room and deck are all well-designed and equipped. For such a remote area, the owner has gone to great lengths to make sure guest are well connected with Internet, TV, music services, and landline (due to the absence of cell service). That said, my wife and I came here mostly to get away from civilization. We spent our days wandering the beach and kayaking where we thoroughly enjoyed the local sea life (seals, pelicans, cormorants, tide pools, etc.). While the kitchen is well equipped, make sure to bring all your groceries because there are limited nearby stores and restaurants.

Fantastic house made for two

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I traveled recently and stayed in multiple homestays. By far this was our best experience. House is fantastic, clean, hot tub perfect for two, sounds system that runs up and downstairs, nice shower, quiet and private. I generally want max privacy and this was very adequate.

Overall excellent.

Minutes away from a hotel with good food, solid place for some lawn games and some cocktails.

Privacy and peace!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous area, great combination of sea and mountain air. Easy access to highway and nearby coast. Local Inn has nice menu and outdoor relaxation. My dog enjoyed the deck and I loved the hot tub. The home had everything we needed. The back of the house has a lovely private view of local forest. I would definitely return, and recommend to anyone needing some peace and quiet.

Peaceful retreat in the trees

  • 5 of 5

The Artists Retreat is a cozy getaway for two. Waking up to fog shrouded trees was a peaceful break from our lives in the SF Bay Area. We enjoyed soaking in the hot tub, hiking coastal trails, and grilling on the deck. The kitchen is well equipped with anything you might need. The bedroom is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the whole house sound system and Pandora options. Thank you again for a great stay.

This place is a dream...!

  • 5 of 5

It's quiet. Off the path. Very private. Beautiful. Perfect. From the sound system to the well outfitted kitchen to the back deck that's a dream. There is a nice hiking trail down through the forest. It's close to Salt Point for further hiking and beach access. A couple of small markets in the area, but bring your own essentials. Plan to slow down and relax.

Typical activities; Sitting on the back deck watching the birds and deer among the redwoods till dark. Then watching satellites and shooting stars till the moon comes up. Wake up and do it again.
