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
I thought it would be more in the woods than it actually was. Also seemed bigger in the pictures but that happens. Very sweet cat.

Perfect LDW 2023 stay for a couple!
My and my partner's stay at the treehouse was great. It's exactly as advertised and absolutely beautiful. Hope was super friendly, responsive, and accommodating – she let us check in 2 hours early bc we arrived accidentally ahead of our check in. Her two cats were ABSOLUTELY adorable, I truly fell in love with them especially the one that likes to be in the dome with you. :) The only con was the private toilet we have attached to the treehouse doesn't allow toilet paper. It was a little inconvenient to have to wipe and remember to not instinctively drop the used tissue in the toilet. Other than that no complaints!

Redwood Cathedral Treehouse
This is a very cool and creative treehouse to stay in, and the area around it is beautiful. I would recommend bringing lots of blankets and pillows.

Magical Experience
Stayed at the tree house for 2 nights and was an amazing experience. It was surprising how much cooler the air temperature was once in the woods. I’d recommend bringing a sleeping pad as the ones provided are about 1-1.5” but good for one night.

Redwood Grove Tent Platform
What a gorgeous property in the Redwoods! It was our first night staying amongst those trees and loved it! The platform is tucked away in the forest and provides an amazing experience in the trees.

Loved it
The treehouse was gorgeous, the barking dog was not much of an issue compared to most camping grounds with hundreds of people on it. There are houses nearby within sight, but it still feels very private due to all of the tree coverage. I really enjoyed my stay, and used the time camping to catch up on some quality relaxation and sleep. The thing that was the most difficult was the outside toilet, it was very high off of the ground so you kinda had to hop up to sit and I’m 5’6. I know the town was out of power when we decided to camp, and there was no Wi-Fi. But the Wi-Fi is apparently spotty, and without it you are SOL on service! It felt nice not to have service, but maybe download some Netflix shows and tell the folks you’ll be out of range. The closest town with decent coverage is Brookings, OR about a 30 minute drive. There is an amazing seafood place there called Catalyst Seafood and they have excellent Wi-Fi if you are seated inside.
