This Craftsman built Timberframe home is located in the heart of the Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve. Trails begin at your doorstep. Wildlife viewing in a quiet peaceful setting.

In 2008, the Martin Fire burned through the farm and 500 acres of the surrounding Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve. Fortunately, much was saved and anything that was lost was soon replanted and rebuilt including this house which used fire damaged trees milled into lumber to rebuild. This house is not suitable for children.

I would highly recommend a stay at Mary and David's wonderful place. If you are seeking serenity and peace, I can think of no better place. I have stayed at a dozen Airbnbs, and this is far and away my favorite. Both Mary and David are wonderful hosts and their house is gorgeous…
