Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a fabulous stay at Katie's cabin. There were 6 of us - 4 adults and 2 kids. The house was very cozy. Wood burning stoves added a nice charm, helping creating a getaway feeling. Our kids also loved the rope swings outside and sitting by the 'campfire' outside. The house is close to Gualala Point Park and Schooner state beach, both amazingly beautiful. We had a very special Thanksgiving getaway and will want to come back again!

  • We had such a great time so peaceful, loved the homemade sourdough bread the fresh chicken eggs the vegetables from Katies garden the flowers and everything else. We would love to come back again.I think that anyone who came here would go away with a happy feeling.

  • We gathered for a weekend of study, discovery and socializing. Our group of four found Bacon Creek Ranch house and the surrounding grounds to be all that we needed. The house was well stocked, always comfortable and laid out nicely for our individual and group needs. Within the house and moving about the property we were often delighted by the discovery of the little icons and touches that characterize Bacon Creek. I personally was encouraged by the regard for sustainable living incorporated into the house infrastructure and outfitting.
    Katie was communicative and welcoming before and upon our arrival. As one member of our gathering put it, " was obvious that she put a lot of effort and energy into making our stay comfortable."

  • My boyfriend and I had the most relaxing weekend away at Roseman Creek Ranch. The cabin is immaculately clean and comfortable. We just loved its hand-built creativity. The temperature had already dropped outside as we took a mid-October trip, and Katie had plenty of wood stocked for us and woodstoves laid with wood, so all we needed to do was light a match to get them going (Country Living 101 for us city dwellers!). There are 2 woodstoves but they work so well that we only needed to fire one up to heat the whole house. We feasted on 3 different kinds of kale, tomatoes, broccolini, lemon cucumbers, green onion, parsley, artichokes, farm fresh eggs and freshly baked sourdough bread all weekend from the land.

    The 2nd day we ventured up to the gardens and property where Katie and Dennis live and got tours of the property. We were both inspired by Katie's vision of creating and feeding community (both literally and figuratively). What they've done with the land they own is seriously impressive, turning nutrient empty clay sand into fruitful gardens, lush with organic fruit, vegetables and olive trees. Their energy and love for what they do is apparent and we fantasized about leaving the city life on our 3 hour drive back to San Francisco as a result :)

    We will definitely be going back for another stay- I highly recommend this get away to anyone wanting a nice retreat.

  • Cabin was right in the middle of the redwoods. Katie had left fresh flowers in every room, organic fruits and vegetables on the tables. She stopped by in the evening with a loaf of bread fresh out of oven made with nuts and herbs. It was the most delicious bread I've ever had. We loved the warmth from the wood burning stove at night while watching movies. We loved sitting in the sun on the deck in the morning or having a fire in the fire pit, while humming birds flying around. I talked about our memorable experience to my daughter. She wants to go with us next time.

  • We were delighted with our stay at Katie's wonderful cabin. A remarkable location in the midst of a redwood forest, exceedingly well built by her husband. With gorgeous master bedroom and adjacent outdoor porch, a tiled shower to die for, ample kitchen facilities, highest cabinetry quality cherry wood furniture, wood burning stoves with ample wood and kindling supplied -- an off-grid gem. It was certainly more than the 4 of us expected. Only suggestion -- bring your own bar soap if you prefer that to liquid soap.

  • mply amazing! The property is beautiful, and the house is cozy and serene. We arrived to fresh sourdough bread and eggs, a plethora of veggies, and beautiful, fresh cut flowers in EVERY room.

    The highlight of our visit was spending time chatting with Katie, the owner. She was hospitable in every way and accompanied us on a tour of the property. My dad loves to talk, and so he enjoyed talking architecture and local history with her. My mom LOVES to garden, and Katie allowed us full access to explore her lush garden of vegetables, fruits, and flowers. She even lent us a basket, which we filled to the brim of all things yummy: butter lettuce, tomatoes, sugar snap peas, beets, artichokes, pears, cucumbers, and much more. My husband loves animals, and so he enjoyed making friends with Katie’s precious dogs, little duck, chickens, and sweet horses. Even our dog was smiling as he ran free and followed his new pals down to the creek.

    We strongly recommend a stay at Katie’s off the grid paradise. What a great way to decompress and center oneself. We hope our paths cross again with you Katie. You have left a big impact on us all.

  • Staying at this off-grid cabin was magical and renewing. My husband, our dog and I had a great time sleeping, hiking, and cooking meals in Katie's fully-equipped kitchen. This is a beautifully made, well thought out cabin with porch swings and rocking chairs aplenty for reading. We highly recommend taking some time to slow down among the redwoods from the cabin, and we will be back!

  • The Host Katie was extremely friendly and personable. Soon after we arrived she arrived with her dogs and greeted us to show us the ropes. It was a pleasure meeting her and the cabin was BEAUTIFUL. She left us with a gift basket of food from her garden which was delicious. It was a wonderful experience which I would suggest to most anyone!

  • This place is awesome! It is ridiculously beautiful with a lovely garden out front, porch swing and a back deck with a comfy sofa and chairs. In the afternoon, my son and I curled up on that sofa reading while a young deer nibbled on grass outside the gate. Inside there is a wedgewood stove that worked wonderfully (we made all meals at the house with no problems), two wood burning stoves for heat, and great beds with down comforters.

    During the day we visited local beaches and the Gualala river but mostly we just hung out on the property. My son loved walking up the hill to see the owners horses and dogs. All in all a wonderful get away. We will be back.
