Nestled among the ferns, under the majestic Redwood trees, this cozy little cabin was built in 1930 as a fishing cabin. Back then, the creek was full of steelhead and one could fish right from the living room window. Once the road was put in and electricity came to this canyon inside of a canyon, it became a resort area of sorts. The creek was dammed up in the summer for the local swimming hole known as 'Club Lompico'.
There is a large deck with views of Lompico Creek. The living room has 1 full wall of windows facing the creek. Beautiful Loch Lomond is just a 5 minute drive away. (Due to the drought status Loch Lomond will not be opening for the 2014 season. This may change with more rain.) Paddle boat,
row boat, and canoe rentals, fishing for stocked trout and indigenous bass, picnicking, and hiking trails. Loch Lomond is open from March-September. In the mountains we may be, but ever so close to the sea. Santa Cruz is a 20 minute drive. There is the famous Roaring Camp Railroad attraction. Kayak rentals and tours go all around the bay. From town, it just a short hike to the Lime Kilns. Near the border of Scotts Valley and Santa
Cruz lies the Mystery Spot.
The big, elegant sail boat sloop, the Chardonnay, has wine tasting with its coastal tours. You can take the train all the way to the Beach Boardwalk for a day of fun rides, mini-golf, and sun. Nearby, the Felton Commons Park boasts the tallest covered bridge in the United States, (Guinness Book). All around are famous local wineries; Bonny Doon, Bargetto's, Zayante, and Hallcrest to name a few. Limo tours are available. In Felton town, Don Quixote's Mexican Restaurant features live entertainment every night. Italian and Chinese cuisine and pizza are also in town.

Janea was very nice to deal with. The property is just as others have described - kind of funky cabin but very comfortable. We didn't use the hot tub or the outdoor seating, but all looked inviting. Would recommend to others for a relaxing getaway!
Fun and cozy cabin in the woods. Everything you need for your stay is provided, just bring your own groceries and you are good to go. Plenty of hidden surprises around the property to make you smile so make you sure you poke around and find them all.
Our family wanted the best of both worlds with the woods and the beach. Well we got exactly what we asked for. First I thought OMG the city is so close I probably booked a room on a little hill!!! N
ot at all. We felt like we drove deep into the beautiful redwoods (@15 min) and there it was. The cutest little cabin ever. Janea had everything very clean and fully stocked. I thought I took everything but the little things you could forget and ruin a trip - Janea already had in cabin😉. Kids had a blast. Felt so safe at night because cabin had a nice fence around it. Everything was well lit and even at night after an adventure out - cabin was lit up to find our way home. Rooms where clean - bedding smelled fresh. This place was very reasonably priced and you got all the perks. Really felt like home for a week. Thank you Janea!!!! We will return!!!!
Wonderfully peaceful stay amongst the tall trees of the Redwood forest .
Quirky and cosy cabin with thoughtful touches and inclusions.
Remote location but nearby Felton has great eating and coffee .
We had a wonderful time staying at Tranquility Base. Janeau was such a wonderful host. When we arrived the place was lit up so we found it quite easily. She had all these cute little notes for us all over the house. We enjoyed BBQing outside on the front porch. We highly recommend this place.
After an adventurous day of sightseeing with toddlers, Janea's tree house hideaway was the perfect ending to our day! The property had so many whimsical details, it truly felt magical. Cozy, clean, and comfortable beds. Soaking tub was a nice addition. The only thing I would do differently is to bring mosquito repellent. They were pretty aggressive! We will definitely return.
Beautiful Loch Lomond is a miniature Lake Tahoe, complete with an island. It has paddleboat, and row boat rentals. Picnic areas, hiking
fishing. 10 minute drive from the cabin.
