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 what was lost, was soon rebuilt including this house which used fire damaged trees milled into lumber to rebuild. This house is not suitable for children or pets.

Mary's place is fantastic. You will not regret staying here. Very quiet and relaxing. We saw about a dozen deer as soon as we pulled up. The house itself is gorgeous and extremely clean and comfortable. I can't wait to book again.
