Located within 45 minutes of the wine country and 2 miles from the coast, our property is 400 acres of rolling hills and redwood groves, with a creek running along its base. With miles of trails meandering through quiet woods and meadows, you will be able to revel in the tranquility of a private preserve, without sacrificing easy access to some of Sonoma County's most famous attractions. A hundred years ago, this land was used to graze sheep. Remnants of the old fence lines can still be seen in places, along with old cement troughs. Since then, the land has been left to its own devices, passing through many hands, most famously owned by two brothers in the 1980's who built a truly amazing tree house in the forest which has been featured in several magazine articles. It was revamped and updated in 2016 by a master craftsman, using fallen redwood logs found on the property and is now a unique structural work of art, available for overnight stays. We produce 100% grass fed, dry-aged beef on our certified organic pastures and have a store on site if you would like to purchase delicious steaks, ribs, ground beef for hamburgers or some roasts to take home. Our cattle graze on the native grasses, never grain, and drink only water produced from our own springs. We also raise Kiko meat goats and produce pastured, certified organic duck eggs on a commercial basis. Whether it's surfing at sandy beaches, award-winning clam chowder, a wine tour, horseback riding or a hot air balloon ride you're after, you won't have far to drive if you make our ranch your base camp. You may see a family of deer appear suddenly, or a few Scottish Highland cows which we allow to roam freely over the property. There are over twenty species of wild birds that grace this protected spot, so bring your binoculars! A portion of your fee goes towards protecting native flora and fauna as part of our private wildlife preservation program. A limited number of private, widely spaced camp spots are available for visitors. The Eagles' Nest Treehouse (mentioned above) is very isolated and you may or may not even be aware that there are other people within miles of you. For those who value nature, seclusion, quiet and the artistry of old growth redwood, this is the place for you.

What it’s like to be an owl
A lovely place. Perched among two massive Douglas Fir trees, it feels as if your an owl hid inside a tree. The room is made of wood slabs, artfully pieced together to give the sense of being part of the tree. The recent rains made for a swollen brook tumbling down the sides of the broad valley—lovely music to the ear. John and Lesley are happy hosts. Much to recommend this place as a place to unplug.

Eagles Nest Tree House was a beautiful structure. It was cozy, intimate, in a lovely setting. Comfy bed. Good heater Beautiful shower, although minimal hot water. Some electricity, small battery plus generator. Outdoor fire pit and grill.

Awesome private spot in the trees
I'm not gonna say it was the ideal weekend - it rained pretty much non-stop the entire time and by bedtime the first night, it was clear that both of us were getting the sore throat, stuffy head plague that's going around. But, I can't think of a better place to spend a weekend in bed, 30 feet up surrounded by huge trees, in a super soft bed with a thick layer of covers while listening to the rain on the roof. We did manage to get in a 2.5 mile hike that first morning - down to the creek, gave ourselves a tour of the (empty) campsites surrounding the meadow, hiked along the creek then back up the hill to long hot showers in the copper lined shower with floor to ceiling glass overlooking the forest below. Then straight back to bed, books, games. We had a nice dinner in Bodega Bay Friday night before we realized that we were going to be too sick to do much for the rest of the weekend. It's a short drive to BB and there seem to be many nice restaurants, but just staying at the treehouse was very nice. I think we'll bring food to cook next time and never leave this little paradise. Or maybe we'll get a camper van and stay in one of the campsites.

Our stay in the tree house was magical! The craftsmanship of the house itself is absolutely incredible and a true work of art. The farm and forest are very seclude, making it a perfect getaway. Coordinating logistics with the hosts was a breeze. Couldn’t recommend more highly. Thank you for curating such a lovely experience!
