A rustic, cozy cottage nestled in the majestic redwoods of Sonoma county makes the perfect weekend getaway or month retreat. Relax in 2 acres of landscaped garden or drive to convenient restaurants, the ocean, or San Francisco.
“Had a lovely time staying at Josephine’a cottage. The fresh air, hot tubbing under the stars, and laying in a hammock between the redwoods were all aspects that I especially enjoyed. Our hostess was lovely and very gracious! I would definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking for some rest and relaxation.”
March 15, 29 - April 1st now open. There has been a lot of concern about the Covid-19 virus. We are now sterilizing the hard surfaces in our listings. We are quite isolated here so your exposure risks are much lower than in a city. If you have been exposed to it, please don't make a reservation. We have been listing the Mushroom Dome Cabin with airbnb since July '09 and have had the most reservations of any of their listings - in the world. We have had over 5,000 guests from over 50 countries.
“Kitty and Michael are gracious, kind-hearted super hosts. You will fall in love with the Mushroom Dome; my two friends and I felt at-home very quickly. The location is beautiful, the hosts are absolutely lovely, and the place itself is breathtaking. The bed upstairs is super comfortable and the shower is pleasant as well, with water that warms up right away. The Mushroom Dome is incredibly charming, and hearing about it’s history from Kitty adds another element of awe to your experience. This was my friends’ and I first AriBnB experience, and we feel so lucky to have chosen such a perfect place. None of us stumbled across any issues with our stay, and our entire trip was smooth and enjoyable. If you find dates that work for you, I urge you to book, I can’t imagine anyone regretting this stay!”
A magical Redwood Treehouse located it the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. There is a live tree growing right through the main living area and another in the bathroom! It is simply incredible. It was built by my friend, Randy, a stained glass artist. Everyone who sees it are delighted by it. Please read entire description before making a reservation request. It has a delicious high-bed, a kitchen with a small stove and refrigerator, and typical cooking tools. There is a full bathroom with shower and toilet of course. There is now a hot-tub at about 103 degrees ready for your soak before bed or a morning treat. The Treehouse is a short walk of a few hundred yards (about four minutes) through the beautiful woods from the parking area. There is a gas stove for heating. There is a TV and DVD player with many movies to choose from. For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A wonderful treehouse nestled in the redwood forest, a short distance to HWY 1(Pacific Coast HWY) the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz and the HWY 101 Corridor. People come from all over the world to experience the Pacific Coast specifically the Monterey Bay area. It is an area rich in history. Here you will find world class art, music, cuisine, golf, surfing, sightseeing, hiking, biking, sunbathing, whale watching, birding, fishing, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and so much more. You can spend the day engaged in a variety of activities, physical and/or cultural. However you spend your day you can return home to a mountain treehouse and quiet. The weather here is excellent. It is located in a micro climate called a ‘banana belt’. Though the beach is only 25 minutes away we are often in the sun when our neighbors in the valley and on the coast are in the fog. Winters are mild we average 25” of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The fog rolling in at night is nature’s air conditioner and everything cools down. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off early enough to make the beaches comfortable all day. The Santa Cruz Mountains are home to Sequoia Sempervirens commonly known as a Redwood Tree. They are native only to a specific part of Pacific Coast region. Come and visit our amazing part of the world and experience something special about the California Coast. All linens are provided. The kitchen has the basic items for cooking, i.e., spices, oil, vinegar, sugar, and tea. Two-night minimum on weekends. THREE-DAY MINIMUM on HOLIDAY WEEKENDS. A 60.00 cleaning fee will be charged per each stay. We are a green establishment. Environmentally friendly cleaning products are used. We ask our guests to consider using fewer towels during their stay and not requesting a sheet change unless your stay is longer than a week. I have a moderate cancellation policy. You must cancel a full seven days before your reservation. Please make sure that you read it thoroughly. You will be charged 50% of your stay if you cancel after the grace period.
“Our April visit to the Redwood Treehouse was a birthday treat for my husband, planned months ago before the uncertainty in the world today with the pandemic around us all. Our host, Mary Jane, welcomed us to her place & we felt very much like kids, as we made our way to our 3-night adventure. The small trek into the redwoods offered an immediate tranquility...it led us out of the hectic world & into a more serene one. Seeing the treehouse all nestled in the beauty, we were anxious to see inside! The warm feeling when we first opened the door was incredible to say the least & something I don't remember ever having in a traditional stay. Everything has been thoughtfully arranged & there wasn't anything we needed outside of the food & drink we took along. We enjoyed the views while we sat outside with our morning tea, & again in the late afternoons with a bottle of wine & some cheese after a nap. The hot tub was the perfect temperature & relaxed us before bed, as we would then enjoy a movie together in the quiet around us. Sleep was most soothing & so needed from our everyday city pace - the bed was comfy & warm, with a nice gas stove for a special ambiance that I don't remember having in my childhood treehouse :) My husband cooked up the meals on the grill, as I finished up in the kitchen - sitting down to a dinner table had become foreign to us with our schedules & we loved connecting with each other again. Mary Jane, we will be back...hopefully, we'll be able to nuzzle our way back on the calendar soon since many of our friends are looking to schedule their much needed retreats too...they're looking forward to the serenity we've TRIED to describe! Thank you for sharing the treehouse adventure with us - we're still enjoying the memories!!”
