The perfect solo escape! Treat yourself to a quiet getaway for one at this cozy, clean and comfortable cabin on our rural farm, between two rivers, on Sherman Island. Located in the eastern San Francisco Bay Area at the confluence of the San Joaquin River, Sacramento River, and the eastern terminus of San Francisco Bay, Sherman Island is known for its wildlife, sunrises, and sunsets, and its dark sky for stargazing opportunities. The property is surrounded by alfalfa fields, grazing cattle, sheep, and a wildland habitat populated with migratory and native birds, animals, and plants. The one-room cabin has a bed and clawfoot bathtub with hot water offering a peaceful escape on our 5-acre tree-lined farm. Here you can listen to birdsong instead of the sounds of the city. This is an ideal cabin for birdwatchers, plein air painters, nature photographers, stargazing, windsurfers/kiteboarders, meditation, or some stress-free, peaceful reset time. The private cottage has a refrigerator, microwave, compostable dinnerware, drinking water, and a coffeemaker with coffee. It is air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter. Pets are welcome and free to enjoy being off-leash in the cabin's fenced yard. The hosts raise free-range chickens and bees on their farm and also conduct a nonprofit rescue and hospice for senior pets. The property is in the Pacific Migratory Flyway, surrounded by a 1000-acre state habitat/preserve populated by seasonal bird populations. Downtown San Francisco and Sacramento are each about 55 miles away in opposite directions. Mount Diablo, viewed from the property, is about 15 miles south and offers hiking trails with stunning views and abundant wildlife.Treat yourself to a quiet getaway for one at this cozy, clean, comfortable cabin between two rivers at our rural farm on Sherman Island,.

Birders Cabin (Sherman Island)
Steve & Ceci’s cabin made for a wonderful weekend. It was exactly what I needed, and absolutely perfect for my personal retreat. From the cozy bed, to the cute fridge/freezer and matching microwave, to the comfy big chair facing out the window with a bookshelf full of interesting reads within reach, to the front patio and ready to light fire pit, to the glorious cast iron, claw foot tub with bath salts that I could completely stretch out in, I couldn’t have asked for more. But yet there was! I was treated to beautiful bird song, laughing chickens, gobbling turkeys, migrating snow geese, expansive marshes with dirt trails on which to wander and run, fabulous sunsets, friendly dogs, and a sweet pig named Winifred. Steve & Ceci were generous, kind, and the ultimate hosts. Thank you both so much for sharing your space.

It was a perfect getaway for 1. The cabin has everything you need for a comfortable rest. Steve and Ceci are lovely, as are all the animals and four legged friends they call family. I can't wait to go back and stare at the big delta sky and explore the towns and parks along the Delta

Loved our short stay in the birder’s cabin! Steve and Ceci were wonderful and helpful hosts, and it was a joy to be surrounded by all the birds, chickens, and dogs. This is a special place which has been worked on and treated with care. The cabin itself is super cozy, I loved the fire pit, small yard and of course the tub.

The hosts are very thoughtful. The cabin is clean, warm, charming with a small private yard, and a little fire pit. An owl sang every night. There were coyote howls. I saw sandhill cranes, snow geese, redwinged blackbirds, and small backyard species. Great place!

A peaceful space full of lovely animals. Perfect for a quick getaway to read, reflect, and clear the mind. Some of the friendliest hosts I've encountered. I fed a pig baby tomatoes. Dream come true.

Peaceful oasis on the delta
I had a wonderful couple of days at Steve and Ceci’s farm. They’ve created a peaceful oasis and the cabin itself is perfect. There’s lots of space to roam around and the sound of the birds is so calming. I rode my bike around the perimeter of the island (15 miles) to take in the sights of the delta. I needed a break from my busy life to just be by myself for a bit. Steve and Ceci heard me loud and clear and gave me plenty of space. In fact, I never saw them after check in until the morning I departed. If you need a little getaway and love animals, then this is the place for you. I’ll definitely be back! Thanks again guys, Ross
