“The highlight of our road trip”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My family and I loved this cabin and its magical surroundings. We felt at home during the stay, and wish we had more time to spend here. Cindy was so helpful and made all the needed arrangements before our arrival. I would recommend this rental place to anyone who plans to travel this way. Thank you for sharing your place with us Lesley! Our family made memories here.

“A great vacation in an amazing location”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Log Home is a great location to relax. Even if it's close to a road and the 101 it's a very quiet place. Specially for us as a family with two kids (6 and 8) it was perfect to have two separated bedrooms, so it was possible to let the day fade away on the porch. The facility is absolutely above board and leave nothing to be desired. It's a good base location to bike/hike in the redwoods (a bunch of very nice trails are reachable in short distance by car) and the beach in Trinidad is a lovely one (5min by car). The garden is a great place for the kids just to jump off the house and play.

The Log Home is definitely one of our Top5 accomodations in California.

Thanks for your review, I agree the porch is a great place to unwind in the twilight or any time of day. Glad to hear that you both biked and hiked, and went to the beach. Your review makes me realize how much we miss being there ourselves. I hope you could hear the seals barking at night from the house. Lesley

“Quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I met my parents at this house for a two night stay and it was wonderful. Cindy, the property manager was there finishing up cleaning and showed us around. She is AWESOME! The owner is wonderful as well. I would recommend this place to anyone. It is a quick drive to the ocean and the store. The pond with fish is adorable and the house is lovely. A perfect end to the summer.

I agree with you it's so peaceful to hear mostly natrual sounds, and only the occasional car. I wish the pond had more fish though, the racoons keep eating them. Lesley

“The home was well-furnished, clean and had a very pleasant outside area with beautiful flora, fish pond, trees, etc.”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The owner, Lesley, was really nice to deal with and was helpful with some special requests. The property manager, Cindy, met us when we arrived and also took care of some special needs, questions, etc. All in all, a very nice place to stay. Hopefully, we can rent the same property next year for our annual fishing trip to Trinidad.

“Beautiful, Peaceful & Family-Friendly Cabin!”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This house was so peaceful and private. We really enjoyed our visit. Our traveling party consisted of Grandma and Grandpa, 2 boys (13 & 15) and myself. Each one of us enjoyed staying at this house. My 13 year old son said "This house really touched us." It was neat, clean, and even more beautiful than the pictures! Cindy, the property manager, was also very helpful.

Thanks for saying that the house " touched us". I agree, although the house is really comfortable and safe feeling, raw nature is right there, the stormy sea, the wild animals, deer, bear, raccoons, wild berries to pick and always the awareness of how fragile the ecosystem is. It suffers during droughts and will not escape the challenges of Global Warming. Being there reminds us of the beauty in our natural world, and the beauty in ourselves. Lesley

This property is absolutely incredible! We recently spent a few days here with our two children to explore the California coast and we were not disappointed! This property is close to town but feels miles and miles away. It is very private and the property is beautifully landscaped. The cabin is incredible and very clean. The children were able to play in the front yard while we watched from the front porch. It is very pretty and quiet here. We especially enjoyed preparing meals and eating breakfast while looking out over the property from the dining room. The owners and keepers here were all wonderful! This place is top notch! A+++

When we bought the house we considered the lack of an ocean view. I love forests and the presence of wild life. I also love the comfort of warm showers and sitting by the fire. I'm glad we chose the secluded inland view. I don't miss the ocean view because I like the quiet and during storms the ocean seems a bit intense. Lesley

Thanks, a gas fireplace would be a good idea. I love the sound of crackling wood though, but it's not good ecologically. The reason you were given isn't my feeling at all. I don't mind the smoky smell. It may have been because the people following you had an asthma condition and were sensitive to smoke or it might have been that there were forest fires burning in the wider area. Sometimes we say no fires in the summer when it's warm enough and there are other fires in the mountains. In the summer we don't usually build a fire but we go to have a cookout at Patrick's Point State Park when it's not fire season. Sorry. I know having a fire is a special treat. Lesley
