Romantic retreat! Wake up to bird song through the skylights, lounge on the deck under the redwoods with a cup of coffee, luxuriate in the oversized bathtub with candles, and cozy up in front of the wood fireplace. Whiskey Hollow is a true get-away! Nestled in the woods, you would never guess that you're only 2 miles from downtown Felton, 1.5 miles from Henry Cowell State Park, 15 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz, and 20 minutes to the beach. Super cozy and--did we mention? Romantic!!!

The space
Charming, cozy, peaceful, this A-Frame cabin in the woods is the perfect place for a romantic get-away. Snuggle up in the comfy queen bed in the loft, and morning will greet you with a stunning view of the redwoods without even having to leave the bed. (Did we mention it's romantic??)

When you do muster the energy to start your day, a fully equipped kitchen awaits and provides the opportunity to cook a big breakfast, lunch or dinner. Felton offers two nearby markets: Wild Roots and Safeway. If you decide you'd like to barbecue, there is a charcoal grill on the lower deck for your use. Take a seat in one of the Adirondack chairs or at the picnic table while you wait for dinner to finish and enjoy the view--you will see lots of birds and squirrels, and may see deer or our local flock of wild turkeys!

The main level of the home consists of a sweet bedroom (full bed), a dining/work area, a living room with a sofa, a loveseat and a large ottoman, a wood-burning stove, television and an entire wall of windows that look out onto sun-dappled forest. Additionally, you'll find the fully-equipped kitchen and the bathroom with a generous two-person tub you may never want to leave.

The upstairs loft has a mini office (with a lovely view!) at the top of the stairs. At the far end of the loft is the cozy queen bed, two luggage racks and an area to hang clothes.

In case you need an iron and ironing board, you will find them on the lowest level.

Consider Whiskey Hollow your home away from home. During your visit, please feel free to enjoy the television, board games, books, popcorn, coffee and tea. And remember: the kitchen is fully equipped, so if you'd rather whip something up than get takeout, you're all set.

During the summer, we have a window air conditioning unit. Combined with the ceiling fans and the fan setting on the thermostat, this keeps the cabin nice and cool.

Note to families: Both sets of stairs are fairly steep, and there is a stairway off the deck. There is no baby/toddler/child-proofing in the house, so please proceed with caution if you elect to bring the little ones. If you are bringing the little ones, let us know--we will set out the bins of Legos and trains!

Felton is in a forested area, and fire is a very real hazard in the dry months.
Please leave coals and ash in the fireplace or the barbecue so that we may dispose of them safely. Also: Absolutely no smoking or vaping inside or outside the home. Thank you for protecting our home and our neighborhood.

We do live here part-time, so while the cabin will be clean and uncluttered, you will see some personal items (i.e. clothes, shoes, books) tucked away.

We have a sweet dog too and, though the house will be clean for your arrival, if you are allergic to dogs, this may not be a good fit for you.

*Important Note: Our community - Felton - was one of those threatened by the CZU Lightening Complex wildfire, which included forced evacuation on 8/20/20. On 8/29/20 we were cleared to re-enter our home which experienced NO damage (blessings counted...whew!!!!). While Felton was completely untouched by the fires, several communities and state parks to the north experienced damage. Santa Cruz (including beaches) and the portion of Henry Cowell State Park within Felton proper were not damaged. If you choose to stay at Whiskey Hollow, it's possible that you may not even be aware that it was in the path of the wildfires, particularly if your activities take you to the coast or south. That said, if you would like more information before you book, please don't hesitate to message us. We look forward to hosting you!

Where you’ll be

Felton, California, United States

If vacation means not cooking, downtown Felton offers multiple dining opportunities just five minutes away. A few of our favorites: Cowboy Bar & Grill, The Cremer House, and Redwood Pizza . Scotts Valley is about 15 minutes away and offers all the amenities of a city (in case you're craving a fancy cupcake, See's candy or want to catch a movie on the big screen). Drive a few more minutes and you're in Santa Cruz at the beach, where you can find fresh crab, locally roasted coffee (Verve!), and a vegan bakery, as well as the renowned Bookshop Santa Cruz--a must if you are a book lover.

Nearby activities include hiking, surfing, zip-lining, mountain biking, and Roaring Camp Railroad. In the cabin you will find a binder filled with our dining recommendations (as well as addresses, phone numbers and hours for each restaurant), information on local activities ranging from Pescadero down to Carmel, and books about the area to help you plan your stay. One of our favorites: Renting Jump bikes (electronically assisted cruiser bicycles, $4 per hour) and riding along West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz.
