The Eagle's Nest Treehouse Farm Stay offers a secluded, tranquil wilderness experience, right in the middle of a private forest, but with 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).

Beautiful! What a lovely place! Very comfortable and extremely cool. Only had one small snafu; other guests staying on the property to 4wheel apparently were not asked to respect the space of anyone renting the treehouse. I looked outside in the morning to see 2 strange men underneath the platform looking up at me. As a woman alone (my partner had gone on a walk) this was very startling. They asked if they could come up and look around, but were polite enough. Just a heads up you may not have total privacy! Still lovely and would recommend.

This space is gorgeous, but unfortunately the bed with quite uncomfortable. It felt like it was sinking through the middle. The place is otherwise stunning, I’d just expect more of the bed for the price.

You must stay here! It's worth the price. The treehouse is even more magical than the pictures; it's such a special and unique place to stay.

I can’t more highly recommend this accommodation. It’s a can’t miss experience for anyone who loves nature and has been curious about what it would be like to stay in a luxury tree house. The stay was very relaxing and serene as the tree house is nestled in a beautiful wooded area, you won’t see another human, but you still have the modern conveniences and comforts of home. The tree house is beautifully crafted and you’ll never stop admiring all of the fine details. We hope to return again soon!

Our stay was amazing !!! The perfect getaway - rustic enough to feel like you are in nature, but comfy enough to feel pampered. The hosts were wonderful and welcoming. I’ve never heard such silence or felt so close to the gorgeous trees surrounding you. If you’re looking for a real getaway and appreciate nature - this is for you!

What a dreamy place to spend a night. The silence of the forest was only ever interrupted by the hoot of an occasional owl. The property also had an extensive trail system that made for a lovely afternoon excursion. Not to mention the very hot in-treehouse shower. Thank you, John and Lesley, for welcoming us to your land.

The treehouse was a great escape from city life! Private and serene with a bunch of trails to explore the property. Really enjoyed getting to see the hairy cows. Bought duck eggs at the Mercantile to bring home with us. The treehouse itself is a beautiful piece of construction. Also located 10min from the restaurants of Bodega Bay which is super convenient. Highly recommend!
