Charming, affordable, private, house set in a small redwood grove. 15 min walk to Trinidad on a country lane. Queen bed in master with organic sheets. Comfortable twin bunk beds in tiny second bedroom. Bonus playroom. Level 2 electric car charging outlet (NEMA 14-50). Pets considered on case-by-case.

The space

I grew up in the area but work in Silicon Valley. We purchased the house in 2006 as a summer place to bring our young daughters so they could visit grandparents and family. We have so many fond memories of our summers here. We still love to visit the cottage and now want you to create special memories here as well!

Ideally setup for a couple with 1 or 2 kids. One of the most affordable places near Trinidad for such a family. Not guaranteed child-safe for very young children, need to be safe in bunk bed as well

Note: Even though the place is very private, a few guests mentioned the lack of blinds on the bedroom windows so we installed some nice cordless blinds in the bedrooms.

Guest access

Access to main house, 1 acre lawn, redwood grove and 1 acre forest to explore. Charcoal BBQ, full kitchen, washer/dryer, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, hair drier, iron and board, wifi and basic TV, pack-n-play.

Interaction with guests

I am remote, but Paula who cleans the house lives on the lane and could be reached if need be.

Although private and you can barely see the neighbor houses through the woods, since it is so quiet sound carries so be respectful. Please have any dogs sleep on a dog bed in the laundry room. This is still our loved vacation home so please try to take care of it like we do.

This is a cute little foresty place in a great location if you're interested in visiting the Redwoods. Great value, lots of charm.

This lovely cottage, set among redwoods just outside of Trinidad, CA was perfectly sited for our visit. In the mornings we sat out on the porch and drank coffee, watching the wind in the redwoods. A brief drive up the road and we were able to hike in the parks and along the coast each day, then return to the cottage to sit by the fireplace and enjoy a home cooked meal featuring local seafood purchased at Katy's Smokehouse. On a lazy day, exploring Trinidad itself was quite worthwhile, walking the beach and up over the headland. The cottage was well appointed, and had many welcoming touches including a basket of emergency food, and even baking supplies for a local fruit crumble. The self service check-in was a breeze. The cozy family feeling of the place was relaxing. We loved the privacy and quiet.

This place is tucked into the redwoods. It is nice, private, and cozy. There are a lot of great places to see locally and up the coast. If you love nature and exploring, or just relaxing by a fireplace and looking outside into the redwoods, this is a great place to stay.

This cabin was perfect for our destination wedding. It had everything we needed, was clean, organized and comfortable. The location is perfectly secluded, but you can still walk to the market. Everything was user friendly and the directions were very clear. We had a great weekend.

The privacy and quiet can't be beat! Trinidad has some great restaurants and scenic beauty. We used this as the jumping-off point for the redwoods as there aren't many options closer. We couldn't have made a better, more comfortable choice.
