Very cute cabin at the top of a peaceful and secluded hill in Sonoma county - 650sf or so with sofa futon sleeper which turns into a queen size bed. Very romantic with majestic Redwoods surrounded by two acres of beautiful land. Mini fridge and electric kettle for tea and instant coffee. There are no cooking devices on the premises.This is a Thoreau type cabin where you can experience the outside redwoods from within. There is a 1/2 bath inside + very cool outdoor shower for bathing. (The water heater for the shower is rather small -- please plan accordingly.)
Absolute peace & quiet - located just up the hill from Occidental; charming little town w/ Fri farmer's market, tasty restaurants and authentic bars. Perfect for those looking to escape the city for a few days - artists, writers, cyclists, wine enthusiasts welcome!! The neighbors are all very friendly, the town of occidental has some great restaurants and is very quaint, and there are world renown wineries right around the corner. The studio is located in a separate building on two acres filled with beautiful redwoods so it is a very private space. As mentioned there is an outdoor shower only and the heat source is from an oil filled heater.
No kids or pets please. Cabin is limited to 2 adult guests per night. One queen sofa bed only.
Please note that the loft area is off limits to guests.
Very special little cabin - be respectful of our property and all will be OK. Visitors will be responsible for any damage caused to property or missing items following check-out. Very informal up here in the country - enjoy!!! It gets very dark at night so we have flashlights available but you may want to bring a couple head lamps as well. Easy access to many wonderful places that are very close by. In the winter it can get a bit rainy and cool out, so bring some extra warm clothes. Also there is a private hiking trail at the bottom of the street which is two steps away! The loft area is off limits to guests. This is a non smoking unit. Candles and incense are also not allowed, and we do not permit towels or linens to be taken off the premises.There is parking on the street tucked in near the mailbox and there are no time restrictions. The cottage stays unlocked and there is a key by the front door at the main house. Enjoy your stay!

The listing was very accurate. Marcy was very detailed in the particulars/rules of the studio. We were a little disappointed we couldn't sleep in the loft and had to make up the futon ourselves, but the futon was quite comfortable. The studio is simple and provided what we needed. It was surrounded by redwoods and amazing nature. So quiet and wonderful. Outdoor shower was wonderful. Marcy was mostly out of town, but gave us her cell and when she was on the property gave us space to enjoy the property. Keep in mind that you are asked to park on the street and not to pull into the driveway which made it difficult to move suitcases and what not in and out of the studio. The location was the best part of the studio.
The loft is not available on the site, it says there is a gueen size futon bed available which is also a photo on the site. As for parking, I have never had anyone ever complain, it's not far away and it's only for two nights stay. I do appreciate the feedback but please read what is offered before you book the reservation.
Marcy was incredibly hospitable the entire time we were visiting her beautiful quaint little studio. She showed us around covered all the bases gave us really clear and easy to follow directions to hikes and nearby places to eat and explore.
We had an amazing time and would highly recommend staying here. It's incredibly beautiful and so serene!
My only constructive feedback is that I think Marcy could be more clear in her description that:
1. there are no kitchen facilities (bar fridge & kettle only)
2. the loft bed is off-limits
3. the cabin is an art studio
Admittedly though I did not read the description very carefully before booking.
Otherwise the area is beautiful and private, and Marcy is friendly and helpful.
What a beautiful and secluded retreat! Marcy was so kind and made us feel right at home. The redwoods surrounding the property are gorgeous and the cabin was very cozy and warm. We would certainly return here and I recommend it for anyone looking to get away from it all for a few nights.
A wonderful weekend in the country. This is an absolutely fantastic quaint cabin. The huge windows let in tons of light and because it is set up on a hill surrounded by trees below, it was wonderful to wake up each morning among the trees.
Marcy is a great host, friendly, helpful and very responsive.
Marcy's cabin is the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Located in the redwood forest, where it is free of city noise and lights. However, it is close enough to the the Bay Area that you could use it -- like we did -- for a quick weekend trip. The cabin is located 10 min from Occidental, 15 min to Sebastopol and 20 min to the coast. The cabin does not offer a TV or internet access, but a break from that stuff is kinda the point when you rent this cabin. My cell phone did have reception at the cabin, so your not totally cut off from the rest of the world.
Marcy was a friendly host. She offered suggestions on places to visit in the area and which restaurants to eat at. My wife and I had a wonderful time on our little vacation and would consider renting this cabin again in the future.
