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.

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.

Wonderfull Getaway!

We had a wonderful time in a beautiful little house hidden in the trees. The place is very nice and the hosts are great. If you need a relaxing getaway, this is your spot!

Amazing "Little House" on the side of the canyon.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend a stay at this neat treetop house. We were looking for a secluded place around the Carmel area and found it here. The little home had an awesome design, and the patio off the bedroom looking through the redwood forest and down at the stream was my favorite spot. Well stocked kitchen, great host, and peace and quiet. All that we were looking for. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your "little home."

Wonderful little house!

  • 5 of 5

A great stay in Big Sur, highly recommended for design, welcoming hosts (including well stocked kitchen), and beautiful setting. Beyond glamping -- a great way to explore the area including visiting the south side via the bypass trail. Though great for us, FYI it is a little off the beaten path and like most of Big Sur has no cell service.

A beautiful, magical, stunning place.

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the eye wateringly perfect location. The redwood forest was beautiful and serine and we felt like we were in a Tolkien novel. The cabin/apartment was equally gorgeous and finished to an extremely high standard. Constructed high up in the forest it offers a lovely view of the trees and stream below. We also need to mention how hospitable and warm the hosts were too. This was one of the highlights of our trip through california. Highly recommended!!

Stunning visually inside and out! Alongside the stream is heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

Luxury treehouse with amazing attention to detail. Beautiful views among the redwoods and just delightful alongside the stream!! Loved our time. What a special experience for us!! The breakfast supplies were much appreciated because once you get nestled in, it's hard to want to leave - although the area is so full of wonderful places to explore. Loved it all!!!

Breathtaking....modern but secluded!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time during our stay at Littlehouse in the Redwoods! We got in later than expected the first night and Jerry was kind enough to meet us on Hwy 1 and lead us through the canyon to our cabin. It was a good thing because it is about a 10-12 minute drive winding in and out to the cabin. But in the daylight the views are simply breathtaking! The breakfast that was included the first morning was perfect. The Littlehouse in the Redwoods had everything we needed and had a great location to visit several other wonderful spots. During our stay here we visited Big Sur River Inn, Pfieffer State park, Point Lobos State Reserve, Garrapatos State Park, Mission Ranch (Carmel by the Sea), Cannery Row and kyacking (Monterey), and Rocky Point. Everything was fantastic!
