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)
The perfect soloist getaway
This tiny cabin is exactly what the Dr ordered. The property is absolutely beautiful, the animals are such sweethearts, the owners Ceci and Steve are the most kind and interesting people you'll ever meet. This is a little slice of paradise and the perfect place for a solo getaway. I'll be coming back again and again. I love this place. Can't wait to come back and see all my new friends both human and animal❤️

Great to return to the Birder's Cabin, where Penny (?), a rescued turkey is in search of new relationship and seems to have chosen William the expert collie defending the property, much to William's gentle consternation. Gratitude to hosts Steve and Ceci for allowing me to reconnect to their land, the clawfoot bath tub, and, of course, the Black Phoebes who call the Birder Cabin posts home.

Ceci and Steve are wonderful host, very attentive and communicative. I loved the little cabin, full of nice details to enhance my stay. Their farm is astonishing as well as the island. I felt like I went back in time to enjoy the singing of the birds and listen to the awls at night, to enjoy the smell the souronding nature .

What you know you need
What a respite, only 1 hour from my home! CeCi and Steve are the best. They are so welcoming, interesting, and real. They’ve created a great vibe and oasis on their land. The one room cabin is perfect for one, with everything you need. The land is spectacular, with places to walk, and lots of trees, land animals, and birds. You can relax inside or on your patio to the sounds of owls, chickens and ducks. The place is also located close enough to both the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers where you can hike and take wildlife photos. Can’t say enough about this place and its creators. Roxy and I will be back.

Birders Cabin (Sherman Island)
Perfect gem for solo traveler w/dog
I was desiring a little dog friendly getaway/staycation to help unwind and also get an opportunity to get a change of scenery. After tons of searching, Steve and Cece's place popped up on a search and although I didn't imagine going east on the delta, the pictures of animals, beautiful natural landscapes and the space for some peace and quiet really piqued my interest. From the first step, the communication was very prompt and welcoming. I booked a last minute getaway and they were so kind, asked about my dog and also provided helpful information that made the trip feel very supported. When I arrived with my dog, I was greeted by Steve. He gave me a tour of their property and also how to access the wetlands just behind their home. It is truly an oasis. I was not sure if I would be able to wind down and feel the sense of relaxation that I was seeking, but everything that is needed is provided for and in a very thoughtful way. I treated myself to a warm fire in the fire pit, a soak in the tub and a long walk around the area. It really felt like a true break and in moments I was reveling in the enjoyment of being in a place that is built with the hands of a loving partnership. Meeting Cece was also a delight, she made sure that I found breakfast at a great restaurant, checked to make sure I could bring my dog and also made some local recs that inspired exploration of the area that I would have otherwise missed. This is a really special place with very special people.

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.
