If you want to adventure to nearby spots, here are some nearby attractions:
Portola Redwoods State Park (0-5 minute): Waldhaus borders the state park, and is 5 minutes drive to the park office. Eighteen miles of trails follow meandering creeks, where moisture-loving coast redwoods stand tall among ferns and huckleberries. Waterfalls on Fall and Pescadero creeks tumble down mossy banks over rocks and woody debris. Day use hours are 6am-sunset.
Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve (15 min) showy display of wildflowers in spring. In summer, the hills turn to gold with the late evening sunlight. Autumn, when the fog recedes, is the ideal time to enjoy the ridge views of San Francisco Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains
Thomas Fogarty Winery (20 minutes). Friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere. Wines are good quality and tastings range from affordable to expensive. Outdoor patio for enjoying your wine is a great plus. On a clear day you could see the Bay and San Francisco. 19501 Skyline Blvd. Wed-Sun. 12pm-4pm Mon. Closed Tue.
Memorial Park at Loma Mar (20 minutes) - old-growth redwoods and creek

The vibe at Glamping In The Redwoods
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Nestled in the redwoods, Waldhaus is a gorgeous property with 4 tent cabins surrounding a main building that consists of kitchen/dining area and bathrooms.
The hosts have gone out of their way to make sure guests have all the creature comforts - kitchen is stocked with plates, cookware, basic pantry items, the bathrooms have toiletries and towels in case you’ve forgotten any. There are power strips in the tent cabins, and heating blankets to keep you toasty at night. There is wi-fi in case you absolutely need it, but no streaming.
There are a couple of short loop trails around the property that are perfect for a post-meal stroll, and another trail that leads into Portola Redwoods State Park.
We loved our stay and we hope to come back with friends to show them this redwood loveliness!
Me and my boyfriend stayed one night at Waldhaus Redwood Retreat and had an amazing time out there! I booked this place because of the convenience of it being only an hour from the bay, the kitchen (OMG the kitchen!), and the tent cabin that had a heated blanket :) Prior to our arrival, we went grocery shopping for our meals. You can make anything in that kitchen, I'm sure that small oven can even bake a cake! Wendy's instructions on how to get there were very clear and made it easy for us since you lose reception a few miles away from their location. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Wendy and her son, Lyle. They were very nice and welcoming. Wendy gave us a tour of the property and answered all of our questions before leaving us to enjoy the property on our own. The kitchen was to die for! It practically has everything you need in a kitchen, we especially loved the dinnerware. It made us feel like we were at home. We stayed in cabin 1, which had the queen bed. It was nice and cozy. The bed as the most comfortable I've slept on besides my own. The sheets were clean and comfy. There's a heated blanket so no need to worry about getting cold in a tent cabin! The bathroom was clean and super nice! Wendy had everything we needed in there, all you really need to bring is your toothbrush! The towels were clean and plenty, which I appreciated a lot! There is also a loop trail that goes around the property. We enjoyed it especially since there was a redwood tree that fell down across the trail. We had to climb over it but it made for a great adventure! I would highly recommend staying at Waldhaus Redwood Retreat to anyone who is looking for a relaxing and peaceful time away from the city life. Thank you to Wendy and Lyle for being amazing hosts!
Our stay was amazing! Our cabin was very nice and comfortable, and had a space heater. The kitchen was very well-stocked and it was really nice to be able to cook there. The cabins are in the middle of a quiet redwood forest and our stay was very peaceful. Wendy was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.
This place is magical! I took my girlfriend up there for our anniversary and by luck, we got the whole place to ourselves. We were in Cabin 1 with the queen bed. The cabin was warm and cozy and the bed was like a cloud! The kitchen and dining room are even better than they look on the site. We made fancy dinners each night. The bathrooms are like a spa,
the grounds are spectacular and spacious, and the host is attentive and kind. We will for sure be back. Thanks Wendy!
The property is so gorgeous and has everything you need for a luxurious weekend! We cooked gourmet meals, enjoyed hiking through the redwoods, and played games on the huge dining table. The space heaters and electric blankets were more than sufficient at keeping us warm at night. We hope to return!
