Overview

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...

Who am I to disagree?

Travel the world and the seven seas,

The Eurythmics

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.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the little house. It was so tucked away and private. The stairs to get up to the house can be a little painful, but the serenity once you’re there makes up for them!

Absolutely stunning location and perfect spot to getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and it was just what we needed. A beautiful location, stunning cabin that was thoughtfully decorated, perfect little porch to sit outside and enjoy a coffee in the morning or a drink at night along with a great DVD collection to dabble in before bed. Also right around the corner from Big Sur and only 20ish minutes to Carmel. Highly recommend to anyone looking to explore and get away from the daily chaos that surrounds us all. Huge thanks to Gerry and Maureen who were great hosts and made sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Thank you!!

We had a fantastic stay at the little house in the redwoods!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect base to explore the Big Sur area. The accommodation itself is just lovely and staying amongst the trees is magical. Maureen and Gerald were very helpful with information before we arrived and when we were there. Loved it!

Relaxing retreat, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Climbing the stairs to the little house is well worth the trip. You are nestled in a treehouse eith two available decks and a lovely bathroom and kitchen with all the appointments necessary. Lovely views and great indoor touches. Gerald and Maureen are onsite and not far away but allow you all the privacy you want. Will stay again!

Cozy and well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Littlehouse. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a full breakfast. The space was clean and updated and had so many special touches. We also enjoyed the great DVD selection. It was a great jump off point to Carmel and Big Sur. It was a little bit of a bumpy/windy drive to get to the property, but nothing our Subaru couldn't handle!

The Littlehouse is more charming than I had imagined. It was the perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Littlehouse this past weekend and it was delightful! It is quiet and secluded and stocked with all the essentials. Our hosts were the perfect combination of helpful and removed.
