Relax in a classic 1957 Spartan Imperial Mansion in the redwoods. This is a fun and happy home, surrounded by redwoods, birds, a beautiful flower garden, privacy and serenity. The home is located in a secluded 12 acre forest, 1/2 a mile from downtown Fortuna but it seems like it is far in the country. The home is 20 minutes to the Humboldt Redwoods state park and the Avenue of the Giants, 15 minutes to Centerville beach and 7 minutes to the Eel river.

The space

This is a 40' long, 1957 vintage mobile home, with classic 50s design, decorated in a shabby chic style. The home is 320 sf with a full functioning kitchen and bathroom. There is a bedroom in the back, a bathroom with a full sized tub and shower, a dining room, a living room with a futon for extra guests. There is also a smart tv and wifi.

Guest access

The guests will have access to the entire home, which is set up only as a guest house. They will also have access to the flower garden and the 12 acre forest surrounding the home.

Interaction with guests

I will be available to greet and answer questions about the space or tourist activities in the area.

Other things to note

I have a quarter mile gravel driveway which has a 10 mph speed limit. It might be tricky for motorcycles.

Not suitable for infants requiring a crib because there is no room for a crib. If the infant sleeps in bed with the parents it is fine, but be aware the bed is full sized. It is not suitable for toddlers or crawlers for safety reasons.

I have two dogs that may be outside when you arrive. Please be very careful not to hit them. They are my children.

Shabby-chic interior gives this Spartan trailer a classy retro vibe, while being stocked with anything you could need. The main bed has a quality memory foam topper and is very comfortable. The property is gorgeous and quiet. And dog-friendly! I'll never truly trust anyone who doesn't trust responsible dog owners. We had a very nice, private stay and the host is a badass.

Response from Cheryl:
I love what you said about responsible dog owners. When people ask me if I ever worry about taking dogs I laugh. Anybody who travels with their dog is a good dog owner and has a well behaved dog.. My dogs are my children and I love dogs and their owners. They are always welcome at my home.

The vintage Spartan was a fun experience for my 13 yr old daughter and myself. It is set up on Cheryl's amazing property (I'm still trying to figure out how she managed to get that huge trailer down her driveway). It is decorated super cute, with some of the original fixtures still there to add to the vintage charm. It is well stocked with everything you might need. During our stay, the emergency sirens in town rang out twice and then we heard guns shooting well after dark. I messaged Cheryl to ask what was going on and she quickly replied. The sirens call the volunteer fire dept in case of a fire and the shooting comes from the gun club at the bottom of the hill. It all settled down by bedtime. Lastly, I forgot to shut a window before going to bed and I froze all night (duh!). My daughter stayed warm sleeping on the bed with all the comforters but I couldn't find any extra blankets for the futon/couch other than the two small pretty linens on it. I ran the little heater in the living room on halfway but the next day found a tiny space heater in the bedroom closet. There's a fan in there too for hot days. Anyway, it was a great place to wake up at and we loved our stay. If you get to, be sure to check out Cheryl's tiny house. It's amazing.

Oh, I'm so sorry you didn't see the blankets and I forgot to mention them. There are two closets full of blankets pillows comforters memory foam pad etc. More than enough. I apologize for not mentioning it.

Fabulous. Exactly as pictured, exactly what I needed. And Orion and Mama Bear were the best greeters ever. Lovely to have a cup of tea on the porch before setting off for another long day's drive. :)

This stay was quite unique in the trailer. The trailer is lovely decorated and surprisingly very spacious. We cooked in the trailer and had a nice breakfast in the little dinning corner. The quietness and the nature around made the stay very relaxing. We stayed there two nights with our little daughter and she enjoyed the place as much as we did. We loved the two dogs from Cheryl. Cheryl was a wonderful host, very friendly and welcoming. She invited us for a breakfast. I would highly recommend it to stay there if you like nature and a little camping feeling.
