This magical place is far out there! We are providing a setting for those adventurers who want a place to REALLY "get away from it all." Expect a beautiful 30 minute drive on gravel roads through mature Redwood forest from the village of Mendocino. The property is also accessible from Fort Bragg via HWY 20 and road 408/Little Lake Rd. The Aloha Cabin is a beautiful one room timber frame cabin located on a ridge top in the Redwood forest. Upon entering the gate at Old Mill Farm the Aloha Cabin is the first building you see as you come out of the thick forest and into the mixed meadow/forest ridge top of the property. Old Mill Farm is a 320 ranch in the middle of Mendocino county's 50,000 acre JDSF (Jackson State Demonstration Forest.) The Aloha sits by itself about a 1/2 mile from the rest of the ranch buildings and like the entire ranch is completely off-grid. Electricity is provided by a solar photovoltaic system and battery back up. All water is pumped with solar power and gravity fed throughout the property. You will be imbedded in the outdoors with ample opportunity to commune with the forest and the wildlife that live there. The Aloha has a kitchen equipped for cooking with refrigerator, range and oven. There is a bathroom with a flush toilet and a private outdoor shower. We provide linens and bedding for the full size bed and towels for 4 guests. There is also a sleeping loft (with no bedding included but can be added as an extra.) Please bring your own pads and sleeping bags to use the loft or pitch a tent in the front yard. The front yard is fenced and has a fire pit. Always be fire conscious - never burn outside of the fire pit and extinguish all fires before leaving or bed. You are free to relax in the natural beauty of this place, meditate while walking our earthen labyrinth or hike around the property along the ridge and on the logging roads that descend on each side. Please respect all signs and private residents. JDSF has extensive hiking and mountain bike trails accessible right from the cabin or a short drive away. The breathtaking Mendocino Coast offers an abundance of activities from the forest to the ocean headlands and beaches.Aloha Cabin is the ideal spot for your camping getaway, mountain biking adventure or escape from the stress of the world.

Aloha Cabin
Really off the grid
The cabin is very lovely. It is really off the grid - no cell service, solar power, and water well. But we didn't have any problem with power, barely used 10% of the battery per day. Did I mention there is no service? As a result, entertainment had to be provided the old fashioned analog way. But perhaps it is a good thing. Given that the location is deep in the forest one need to be mindful of the wild animals. And the drive there is really tricky. 4-wheel drive is not needed (on good weather), but high clearance is recommended.

Best weekend ever
The cabin was unbelievable - private, immaculately crafted, and supremely comfortable. Cas gave us detailed instructions for how to get there, and we had no trouble despite being intimidated by the instructions and some of the reviews! This is a really special place and we are so grateful to Cas for sharing it with us. I would love to return some day!

Aloha Cabin
We absolutely loved this cabin! Literally in the middle of thousands of trees. Could not get any better than that. The fenced in area was perfect for our dog to fun freely in! The cabin had everything we needed and it was extremely cozy. The drive to the cabin was bumpy, muddy, and wet, but that made it even more fun. It was very much secluded! Amazing little spot, we can’t wait to be back.
