Our cabin is nestled among redwood trees a few miles from the wild Pacific Ocean, the historic village of Mendocino, and the scenic wine country known as Anderson Valley. Enjoy tranquility and nature at this artistic retreat. All bookings include Mendocino County bed tax.


Remote, quiet cabin with loft bedroom and small, southern-exposure deck offer creative sanctuary.

Calendar usually opens about two months ahead of time. In the meantime, if you have dates in mind, feel free to send inquiry.

*Winter weather disclaimer. In effect from Nov - February, we reserve the right to cancel if a severe weather system moves in. This would likely allow about 3-6 days advance notice. Elements of disruption include: storm winds, flooding, road closure, trees down, and/or power outage. In this rural area, your safety is our top concern. Of course, weather is unpredictable, we might have a perfectly calm winter.*

Efficient, tiny galley, on-demand heater, wood stove, handcrafted woodwork. 7 miles to the store or gourmet restaurants. Dozens of beaches, hike/bike trails, rivers, state parks to explore. Rustic, yet elegant main room is 225 sq ft with cathedral ceiling and a 120 sq ft sleeping loft. A state-of-the art shower, toilet, and pedestal sink afford endless forest views, on-demand hot water, and antique touches. There's a loveseat, cozy chair, dining table and chairs in the main room. Up an 11-step ladder find a queen Flo-Bed, small desk and a tree-house-like view of the forest. Filtered light and a restful quietude invite sweet dreams. Galley is stocked with essentials including organic, locally roasted coffee, pristine, deep-well water and a small fridge for treats you find locally. Farm-fresh apples, berries or eggs on request (when in season). No TV. Your choice: disconnect from the information superhighway or connect to wireless and cell networks. Note: the cabin is self-catering (e.g. no room service breakfast like the inns provide). Designed for a getaway.

We look forward to sharing this retreat with those who seek harmony and proximity to nature's moods. Please have a complete AirBnB profile before requesting a reservation, and feel free to inquire if you're interested in dates that appear to be blocked on the calendar.

A few words about Owl Tree cabin to help you decide if you might want to stay here. We first noticed how undulating lacy green patterns change as the morning sun makes its way through the trees.

Probably, if you love Las Vegas, you most likely would not like it here. And if you love Deetjen's Big Sur Inn, you would be more inclined to like it here. It is similar to Deetjen's, rustic and natural merging with nature, but dissimilar, in that the Big Sur Inn is most always full to capacity, so you’re in close proximity to people. Here you have privacy, a retreat from the world.

The Owl Tree cabin has its own level driveway; it takes less than a minute to walk from where you park to the cabin. We live on the far side of the property. All that you might hear at night will be the breeze in the top branches of the redwoods, and perhaps frogs, an owl, or the red-tailed hawk who soars nearby.

Every spot on Earth has its own unique energy and the cabin and the small canyon it was built in are conducive to creative energy, to the creative mind, at work or play.

The cabin is also a place for intimacy—hopefully more than just a place to sleep while you enjoy the coast, this place is designed to become part of your experience here.

The oak table was the idea the cabin was built around—you can sit there, draw, write or daydream, warmed by the wood burning stove, and let your imagination germinate like the wild orchids in the canyon.


We are located about four and a half miles inland from Pacific Coast Highway, just beyond reach of summertime wind and fog. When it is cold and wet on the coast it is usually beautiful and warm here, summer tempered by the coastal marine layer. So you can enjoy the sunshine and enjoy the coast, without being stuck in the fog. Closest market, post office and gas are 7 miles from the cabin.

Some of the best beaches, hiking trails, places to dive and kayak are between here and Elk, and of course the historic and picturesque village of Mendocino is about 13 miles away. A wine tasting trip to the magnificent Anderson valley is within 30 minutes.

The Owl Tree cabin comes with a picnic table and umbrella in a small meadow, next to redwood trees: also perfect for stargazing.

Regardless of where you decide to stay, we hope you have a great time. It is hard to imagine a world in trouble when you are here. The meadows, the forests, and the pristine ocean seem timeless.

Check in: ideally from 4 pm - 6 pm by prior arrangement for your particular arrival day. Try to arrive before dark! Check out before noon.

Note: price includes 11% Mendocino County Bed Tax for stays less than 30 days.

When I booked this, I was amazed at how many reviews said "magical". I couldn't think of a better way to describe it. Would LOVE to stay again. Will be my first choice for Mendocino in the future. Also Karen is fantastic.

This is my second time at the cabin. It is quite simply the most magical retreat ever. The cabin is spotless, comfortable and warm, and everything we needed was easily accessible. It's a perfect hideaway/retreat. I couldn't recommend it more highly; we live 10+ hours' drive away and are still planning to come back as soon as we can arrange it. Thank you, Karen and Will.

Karen and Will’s handcrafted (and they really do mean made by their own hands - the whole thing!) cabin was the most amazing place we’ve ever stayed. Spacious but cosy, beautiful but practical, every detail had been thought through to make staying there a real dream - the kitchen was well equipped, plenty of towels, blankets, wood for the fire, basic cooking ingredients, wine, books, games, the comfiest bed, even extra towels to wipe your sandy feet on... we wanted for nothing. It seemed a shame to leave the cabin at all (could have stayed watching the trees from the balcony all day) but after walks in nearby state parks/vineyards/beaches, it was the perfect place to return to. Karen and Will were lovely hosts, too - there if we needed them, but otherwise left us to enjoy their very special place. We would definitely come again.

We ended up having to cancel our reservation about 4hrs before arriving due to illness. So although this review is not about the actually place, I did want to comment on Karen’s communication. She was really fast to respond in the run up to the trip and also incredibly understanding when we had to cancel at the last minute. We are looking for another time to visit!!

This is the most beautiful place you can stay. We drove up CA-1 from the Bay Area and hit the coast and were dumbfounded by the crazy scenic views of the pacific. We veered off the coastal path and into the woods and found ourselves among towering redwoods with Owl Tree cabin nestled on the ridge. Karen is a lovely and gracious host. She showed us around the property, gave us the rundown on the cabin and left us to our own devices. She was also kind enough to leave us a gift and congratulations on our honeymoon :) The cabin was well appointed with enough kitchen amenities to allow us to cook every night. The linnens were high quality and comfortable. The cabin itself smelled so fresh and woodsy! Everything was impeccably clean. You can tell this cabin is well cared for. We kept ourselves very warm with the wood stove (and the backup heater). I recommend sitting on the porch and listening to the raindrops in the trees and the muffled forest sounds. Maybe play a board game with the wood stove crackling. If you seek peace, quiet, and tranquility, you should stay here. You'll be so pleased.

The Owl Cabin's amenities are perfectly described on the website. However, there are no words to describe the views of the trees and the serenity you feel once you are there, disconnected from the world. My wife and I were there for our 18th wedding anniversary. We visited some of the surrounding areas but the highlight of our trip was definitely the Owl Cabin. We could not wait to get back from our day trips! Karen took the time to include special touches to makes us feel welcome, the bottle of wine, chocolates, fruit and coffee. Also, the fresh cut flowers. As much as we enjoyed being disconnected from the world, the Wi-Fi allowed us to stay in contact with our kids. We were even able to watch the Golden State Warriors game on Saturday night. The two days we spent there felt like 20 minutes, we both are looking forward to going back. Thanks to Karen and Will, we will never forget our 18th anniversary!
