Very comfortable home, clean and interesting. Loved the location, didn't love the stairs or the ladders...But I loved being on the second floor for the view! Great hikes without getting in the car! Nature literally at your doorstep!
Our family of 5 wanted to experience a few days of Redwood trees, hiking and the beauty of nature. This property fully met our needs/desires and the location was the absolute best. The property was fully prepared for our arrival and we had no problems whatsoever. If you wish to spend a few days enjoying trees, waterfalls, hiking and nature in a great location that offered full privacy and fully modern accommodations in a very relaxing "get-away" environment, this is definitely the place to stay. A couple of bedrooms are in lofts and you will need to navigate stairs to the entrance, but unless you have limitations that these factors will impact you, I can assure you that you will enjoy your stay at this Contemporary Farmhouse at Redwood National Park!
Having a dishwasher full of dirty dishes was a bit smelly. I understand the dishwasher was broken but the dishes from the previous tenants should have been taken care of before we got there would have been nice.
Over all the place was very nice.
This property did produce a whole herd of elk wandering through the yard on a sunny afternoon. We enjoyed sitting and watching the herd of elk wonder by with a cold drink in the afternoon. It is a good house that looks like someone once loved it a lot. It has many things that make it feel comfortable like a home and is reasonably well equipped in the kitchen bathroom and closet. The space was clean and easy to use with kids and family. The tenants below were only seen twice and once was to deliver a new coffee maker. However the single bed in the loft is very uncomfortable and should be replaced. A smaller couch would be more appropriate for the space.
It's tough to find a great house in this area, but look no further! Everything was smooth from check-in to check-out. House is in a great location located directly on Hwy 101. There were herds of elk in our yard every morning and evening which made for amazing photos. You are literally next door to the Lady Bird Johnson Grove hike which is beautiful, close enough to Avenue of the Giants scenic drive and you are located at the south end of Redwood National Park. There is a small grocery/mart and post office just a couple minutes drive away, in Orick. We have a 1-year old and two small dogs and they loved playing outside in the yard. Carol was quick to respond to emails/texts leading up to our stay and the house was perfect! Highly recommended.
Our family of 4 had a wonderful 3-night stay here. The house is just outside the southern end of Redwood National & State Parks, with easy access to a huge number of hiking trails. We saw a herd of elk grazing nearby one afternoon, and my wife and I even saw a black bear in the field across the road one night after sunset. There is a fantastic grove of huge trees just a 5-minute walk away. The house itself was well-stocked and cozy, and the kids enjoyed the "upper deck" loft area where they slept. This place makes a great base for exploring the parks.
