About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Only god can make a tree. Probably because it's so hard to get the bark on. Woody Allen.

Sweet dreams are made of this...

The Littlehouse is located less than 10 minutes off of Highway One, and is accessible by a good road in all seasons. It is situated in a redwood forest in a canyon along a tumbling stream. Pleasantly isolated, it enjoys sunny days and cool nights. Its amenities, delightful furnishings, full kitchen, gas fireplace, luxurious bed and bath, generous closet area, private deck, are appropriate for either short or long term visits. Coastal and forest hiking trails and scenic beaches are nearby. Carmel with its delightful shops and many restaurants is a short drive away as is the Big Sur Village, Nepenthe and Pfeiffer Beach . Simply a delight.

Marketing these days is too much with us. Flowery modifiers, lyrically poetic descriptions, vivid adjectives wash over us all day, everyday. I can't take it. Just know that the LittleHouse is a special lodging in a beautiful place.

Littlehouse in the Redwoods
average rating of 4.9836063 based on 61 reviews

Property is perfect for a two person get-away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in a cabin deep into the redwood valley along Big Sur. The cabin is perfect fit for a couple. It is modern and well equipped; and well appointed. The bed is very comfortable with skylights over the bed which upon awaking open up to the majestic redwood forest canopy above. The owners live below and are wonderful people who are only seen if you need something. The property is strategically located with proximity to many sights, and of course Carmel and Monterey. Highly recommend the Littlehouse in the Redwoods.

All the reviews on here are accurate. Maureen and Gerald have created a wonderful get-away in the middle of a forest. It's simple but still impressive. Our days were spent travelling the coast seeking out adventures. Following dinner, we would make our way back to the cabin to relax and recharge for the next day's adventure. The cabin is tastefully decorated, has a comfortable bed, and a nice kitchen for any of your cooking needs. We usually reserved our cooking for breakfast and then traveled out for lunch and dinner. So many good options out there.

Can't wait to go again.

A relaxing getaway in the woods with 5 star treatment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip to Big Sur and our stay at the Littlehouse. I think the other reviewers have covered all of the elements that made the Littlehouse special. I would simply add that I would definitely stay here again, and would without hesitation recommend the Littlehouse to anyone looking to stay in the area.

The perfect balance of modern and rustic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on our trip to Northern California for our honeymoon. It was so beautiful and the owners were so nice and helpful. It's a little ways out into the forest but worth the drive! Near Big Sur and a short drive from Carmel by the Sea (maybe 20 mins?) The perfect place to go if you are looking for a retreat away from it all. Absolutely wonderful and we would definitely love to come back someday.

Fantastic cabin in a beautiful redwood canyon

  • 5 of 5

We were really pleased with our stay at the Littlehouse. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. It's a modern accommodation with everything you could need to have an enjoyable stay in a somewhat remote location. It's very well situated, just 10 minutes outside of Carmel and right on the doorsteps of gorgeous Big Sur. The listing description was accurate, there were no surprises. Gerry was a great host, taking the time to tell us about the place and the area but also respectful of our privacy. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends.

Beautiful House with Privacy in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our mini-moon for a few nights. The Little House is beautiful and peaceful and you can tell by the details that it was built with love and care. Gerry was very friendly and greeted us upon arrival and helped bring up our bags and showed us the house. A simple, but thoughtful breakfast was provided for the first morning, bread, eggs, fruit, jam and champagne, which lasted the two of us both days. There is an extensive dvd collection and the house was very cozy.

Being set in the redwoods with hardly anyone around was great. It was still easy enough to get in and out, even though it was set about a 10 minute drive back in a canyon off the coast with dirt roads, as long as you don't mind the 70 steps up to the house. We frequented the Rocky Point restaurant which was only about 15 min from the house for the views.

We can't wait to go back!
