The Eagle's Nest Treehouse Farm Stay offers a secluded, tranquil wilderness experience, right in the middle of a private forest, but with many of the comforts of a well-appointed guest house 40 feet from the ground. 

Located on a 400-acre working ranch on the Sonoma coast, we are less than 90 minutes from San Francisco and half that from California's premier wine-growing regions of the Napa-Sonoma Valleys. We are also smack dab in the middle of some of California's most breathtaking coast. In fact, you can hear the waves crashing from the treehouse deck when the wind blows in from the north. You are near enough to civilization, but it feels like you are in the most remote and peaceful spot on earth. 

During the day, you can hike our miles of forest trails and never run into another person. You can check out the flora and fauna residing among the ferns, redwood trees and rolling pasture lands and then roast some of our ranch products, all grown right here, over the treehouse barbecue located at ground level. You can also explore the ranch operation, which includes Scottish Highland cattle, Kiko goats, ducks, geese and the livestock guardian dogs who protect them all. Learn about sustainable organic farming practices and if you like a really hands-on experience, you can help us herd the ducks in at night or come along in the UTV to help with evening chores.  At night, when the fog is out, you can see all the stars since the lights of civilization are so far away. If the fog is in, you can hear the fog horns bleating distantly from Bodega Bay. Think seclusion, privacy, peacefulness and nature. 

This legendary treehouse, featured in House & Garden Magazine in 2000,  the Treehouse Guys TV program and  several other magazines since, has been totally refurbished and modernized using the latest structural and safety standards to serve as a guest house for our Farm Stays. It is reopening after a lengthy pause due to County permitting issues, during which further upgrades have been installed to meet residential building codes. 

Securely nestled high above the forest floor between two towering Douglas Firs, the large redwood deck of the Eagle’s Nest is accessed via a spiral staircase and a 40 ft suspension bridge. Once inside the treehouse proper, the rich hue and grain of the polished and oiled old growth redwood floor, walls and ceiling is astounding. Residential standards of construction throughout include two sets of 8 ft high French doors, sliding windows, a queen size bed, electricity for lights and your personal accessories, separate bathroom with flush toilet, hot and cold water, sink, and an amazing copper-lined shower with floor to ceiling windows looking out on the forest below. A powerful space heater and the insulated walls, floor and ceiling keep the interior cozy.

While staying here you have access to miles of hiking trails throughout our 400 acre working ranch, half a private forest preserve and half organically certified pasture for production of organic duck eggs, goat meat and grass-fed beef (from our amazing Scottish Highland & Angus cattle). You can also enjoy a mile and a half of Salmon Creek that runs through the property, and observe our efforts to help restore the native Coho Salmon. Information on our ranching operations (aimed at production of natural, healthy food) is provided to all guests.

Accommodation in the treehouse is intended for two adults in one bed (children or pets are negotiable). Price includes the Sonoma County 12% transient occupancy tax. 

An online search for YOUTUBE TREEHOUSE VIDEO BY THOMAS AGARATE will bring up an amazing short movie of the Eagle's Nest, including spectacular drone footage, taken by our first guest (a drone technology pioneer).

Easiest 5 star review I could ever give. The treehouse is beautiful, secluded and an amazing escape to the wilderness. We spent our days wandering the many acres of farmland and forest and our nights grilling delicious organic meat from the farm and playing card games in the treehouse. John and Lesley are extremely responsive with any questions. Everything was perfect.

Such a beautiful place! I loved waking up and having a 360 view and realizing that we're in a tree!! We stayed two nights and didn't want to leave. Will definitely be back.

We just loved our stay at the Treehouse!! It was beautiful and serene, absolutely gorgeous trees. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. John was very helpful in teaching us how to use the heater, which was wonderful to have. We were very cozy. I brought my 2 kids, 1 slept in the bed with me and another on a twin size blow up mattress on the floor, which worked perfectly! We will definitely be returning. Make sure to pick up some amazing meat and eggs on our way out!

A magical, serene treehouse in the redwoods. We had a lovely, relaxing stay at Salmon Creek Ranch - the treehouse itself is beautifully done, and there are lovely walking trails to explore all around.

We loved the hipcamp treehouse stay. It was a perfect nature getaway. Driving distance to restaurants and amidst plentiful trail. Kids had a blast with campfire. Treehouse is ideal for 2 adults, we were 2, adults and 2 young kids which was tight for a night stay in terms of sleeping/, mattress space. We would love to go back !
