Cabin is very cool with windows and screens surrounding you on 4 sides. Melissa might be the kindest person on earth. Hope for humanity.

100% recommend! The listing doesn't do this place justice. Secluded, cozy, clean and adorable! Inside there were fresh flowers, an electric fireplace, teapot and a big variety of tea (with a cute little jar of honey), the comfy futon, and a tiny table and chairs perfect for playing cards. Comfy lounge chairs by the fire pit, tiki torches, the cleanest privy, and a big stack of firewood. My husband and I could not have picked a better place for a couple's weekend. Will definitely be staying here again!

Melissa was an exceptional host and the cabin was more than I expected. Her little touches of hospitality were so welcoming. As a woman sleeping there alone I felt very safe. I loved being there and am excited for my next stay. I highly recommend to anyone!

Awesome stay! Beautiful grounds and amazing cabin. Melissa is such a great host as well. She accommodated our every need and even left fresh flowers, tea, and sage for us. :)

Great little place. Perfect for some hiking nearby and a great winery 10 minutes away.

Melissa was the best! Her land feels really good and you can tell that a lot of care is put into it. It was so sweet to find a flower arrangement on the front porch. Her video orientation was very clear and helpful and allowed me to know where I was going and what to do when I showed up. I was grateful to have a little campfire in a recliner, taking in the trees and nature after a long day on the road. I couldn't believe how serene it was for how nearby it was to highways and strip malls. I will stay here again on my next trip this way!

This was the perfect spot for our two-person retreat. The site was very well kept. The cozy little cabin is beautiful. It’s quite small, but bigger than I thought it would be. We saw lots of animals - deer, squirrels, chipmunks. We could hear an owl at night. Melissa was an exceptional hostess and super thoughtful. We really enjoyed our time there!
