We had a lovely time here at the Cabin! Tom was a welcoming host, who made us feel right at home. The nights were GORGEOUS with millions of stars, and no sounds but the crickets and a few coyotes howling. Definitely recommend!

Crickets Cabin is amazing! I gave my reservation to my friend and she absolutely loved it. I did swing by to check it out and there are so many personal details and artistic touches that really show how much effort Tom puts into making this spot truly special.

Tom was extremely communicative, gracious, and sent along dark sky recommendations for the stay. Highly recommend staying here.

Tom’s cabin was the perfect weekend getaway to decompress and detach. The site offers all the amenities you need. There are multiple trails located around the property if you’re looking to get a little activity in. Otherwise just sitting and hanging out is about as peaceful as it gets. A great place to go if you don’t want to venture out too far. This place just might be my monthly weekend hideout. Thanks Tom for sharing such a beautiful place.

Crickets Cabin was a wonderful stay! M We loved the variety of books to read, the wildlife, and the amenities Tom provided. He was very personable and attentive to our needs. The location was quiet and gave a nice isolated feel for relaxation. Would definitely book again. Next time, we’ll make sure to check the weather to dress appropriately but the mini fireplace was a life saver.

My partner and I stayed in Cricket's cabin for four nights and really enjoyed it. The cabin is set in a beautiful spot overlooking mountains and gorgeous scenery all around. It's perfectly equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable and peaceful stay. Tom did a really great job with the details. He's a great host, very responsive and really cares about your experience. My partner and I had plans to wake early each morning for hikes, but it was just so difficult to leave such a peaceful atmosphere. If you don't mind a little scenic driving, this is a great spot to use as a base if you plan to explore the PCT trail and Anza-Borrego nearby. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks again, Tom.

The most peaceful experience. If you need to get away and just be, visit Tom's cabin. Tom is a gracious host, and the cabin is very comfortable and inviting. comfortable bed, stunning views. I loved it so much, I'm already booking my next stay.

In case you're wondering if the pictures are too good to be true, I promise they aren't! This is such a stunning, lovely little retreat, and Tom was an excellent host. The trail networks are lovely to stroll. It's the perfect combination of nature and front country amenities!
