Here, in your little hideaway, you can explore a land of ancient Redwood trees, wild running rivers, and secluded beaches. 

You'll be staying between two of the largest old-growth forests in the world with Redwood National Park just a half an hour north and Humboldt Redwoods State Park 40 minutes to the south.

The rental cost is $139 per night for up to 3 guests. If you split the cost with friends, that's only $46.33 each before taxes and fees.

Since the residence is pet-friendly, you can bring your dog for an additional $15 fee that covers cleaning and maintenance.

When you arrive, you'll see the outside of the house is covered in cedarwood and stone and dripping in moss.

It's so lush!

Inside, it's such a bright and cheerful space. Colorful tapestries adorn the walls and quirky decor sets the mood. 

Each of the two beds is fitted with hypoallergenic linens and has an award-winning mattress to make sure you get the perfect night's sleep.

If you need an incentive to pull yourself away from the plush paradise in the a.m., there's a kitchen waiting with breakfast essentials inside. 

There are two farm fresh eggs in the fridge, steel-cut oats on the counter, coffee, tea, and popcorn. 

You're even welcome to harvest some of the freshly-grown kale from the outside courtyard.

That's also where you will find our favorite feature in the entire property.

Two rustic tubs welcome visitors to soothe and soak outside among nature. 

Care to relax?

This one of a kind experience is included in your stay and the hosts welcome you to take full advantage of it.

Since your cottage is one of several on the private property, the tubs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. With a number of private spaces, you're sure to stumble on something magical.

Did we mention there's a custom cedar sauna?

We definitely recommend stargazing in the tub and then winding down with a warm sauna session.
