Cozy, charming cabin at the edge of a large meadow on 85 acres of rural Monterey county.

The 140sq ft rustic cabin features 2 beds, and a separate building with composting toilet and a hot outdoor propane shower.

This property is a minimum of one hour drive from Pebble Beach/ on a normal day with no traffic. We are 60 miles from Big Sur.

The space
The cabin is rustic and tiny- but insulated, covered in reclaimed wood siding and repurposed corrugated metal. It overlooks a large meadow and is situated next to an incredible old valley oak tree. There are 2 beds in the cabin - one full bed on a frame, and one queen size futon that folds into a couch. Inside the cabin there is a light and a heater, drinking water, and some spare bedding.

A few steps away from the cabin is the bath/outhouse. The outdoor shower is heated by propane, and the outhouse features a composting toilet.

Where you’ll be

Carmel Valley, California, United States

It's real quiet out here. The average parcel size in this area is around 50 acres, and it is just a few short miles to the Los Padres National Forest boundary, and a couple miles beyond that to the Ventana Wilderness. So, to the south, between the Ventana Wilderness and Hunter Liggett, there are several hundred thousand acres of totally empty countryside. Looking up into the night sky, visitors may barely discern the glow of civilization to the northeast, but to the south, it's nothing but bright stars and ink black sky. Our most consistent visitors are wild animals.

During your stay

You may check in with us upon arrival OR we may have sent you the self check in information- if not- we will direct you to the cabin and let you get settled. We live a few hundred yards downhill from the cabin, and are available if you have any questions or concerns. We have three dogs, and will usually be out working in the garden, but the cabin is your sanctuary and the property is open for you to explore.
