This lodging facility serves as a gateway to Jug Handle State Reserve and the world’s largest intact Pygmy Forest Ecological Staircase. Our 39 acres include a native plant nursery, community gardens, forests, waterfalls, meadows, and nature trails.
Please note that we are a wildlife and nature center. No dogs allowed in the farmhouse and cabins, only in the campground. We encourage low impact, sustainability and leave no trace. So groups are required to take trash with them and to leave the farmhouse in the same condition you found it.
Our stay in the cabins was amazing! Three friends and I rented two of the three cabins on the property for a night, and had a great time. We lucked out on weather, but the property is incredible no matter the weather (in fact, I imagine it would be beautiful on a foggy day.) Quaint cabins, access to a beautiful farmhouse with a communal kitchen, and plenty of trails to explore — what more could you want?
There was a trail leading to the beach, just a ten minute walk away, with unbelievable views. I highly recommend a walk to the bluffs above the beach during sunset. Our host suggested this, and we are so lucky she did! There was another trail leading to a pygmy forest. The hike was roughly 5 miles out and back, with well-maintained stairs leading to the main trail, and a boardwalk through the forest. Our host kindly provided us with a map with information on the plants and history of the pygmy forest.
The cabins themselves were so great. We stayed in the Eucalyptus Cabin and the Orchard Cabin, both with adorable lofts. There was a third cabin on the property as well. No need to bring your own bedding — this is provided for you! The cabins had wood stoves and the hosts left us with firewood for our stay.
Beautiful views, welcoming hosts, great trails to explore, and the perfect cabins made our weekend amazing. I'd come back in a heartbeat!
