We want the redwood grove to demonstrate to our community, with its long history of forestry, that trees can be commercially valuable preserved in their natural state. You are helping us do that by staying in our woods! We acquired the property in 2015, out-competing a logger who wanted to cut the grove for timber. Clearing blackberries, rehabilitating outbuildings, remodeling one of the two houses and developing the gardens, greenhouses and orchards occupied a majority of the first two years. As of 2020 more than 60 work-exchange helpers through WWOOF (World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) and HelpX have labored to help develop the property in exchange for room, board and a hands-on education. We are working towards establishing an organic, bio-dynamic, self-sustaining permaculture farm that will supply up to 80% of our diet and result in excess food to sell or share. One goal is for the farm to be part of a more formal education program for serious interns looking to establish their own permaculture properties. The property is also an overnight stopover for bicycle tourists traveling down highway 101, typically from Seattle or Vancouver to the Mexican border who find us through the website Warmshowers.

Redwood Cathedral Treehouse
Wonderful weekend.
This tree house is wonderful. Stayed 3 nights and they were all great nights The location is ideal, waking up in the redwoods and a short drive to the beach or lots of other local activites. The host are friendly and welcoming. There is a bonus friendly forest/farm cat that may grace you with his presence.

Redwood Grove Tent Platform
Grove-tastic
Wonderful example of a redwood grove. Note the massive stump on the way in - it sets the tone to appreciate all the offspring that make up the grove.

Redwood Cathedral Treehouse
Great Location and Magical!
We enjoyed being greeted by the resident cats, Ranger and Scout, one of them led us to the treehouse for a warm welcome. We also got to sample the sweet golden berries and arugula flowers during the farm tour with Chris and the dog Blue. Jedidiah state park is about 10 minutes from the treehouse. Bring pillows and a lantern since the pads inside the treehouse is a couple of inches thick.

Redwood Cathedral Treehouse
Treetop view
My son and I had a great time at the treehouse. The view from the to was amazing. Looking out into the forest was breathtaking. Loved the swing, although the wire was hard to hold onto. Everything was clean and in good shape. Learned a lot about composting. Would gladly come back.

Redwood Grove Tent Platform
Solid tent platform built in a redwoods grove - really beautiful spot! Simple structure that fit our three person tent comfortably. Set in the back of the property near a treehouse and a tiny house but felt pretty private. Lovely woods! Outhouse and dish sink provided as well as fresh water. House cats and puppy were very friendly as were the hosts although they mostly kept to themselves. Designated parking and easy access! Very nice stay overall!

Redwood Cathedral Treehouse
Tree house adventures
The Cathedral Treehouse is a great spot! Beautiful dome structure out on a balcony over the redwood grove. Simple but nice amenities such as clean water an outhouse and dish washing station and designated parking. The hosts mostly kept to themselves but were very friendly - as were their house cats and puppy :) Nice art and gardens on their property as well! There is also a nearby tent platform and tiny house but it felt pretty private. Great experience overall!
