Loved this cute off-the-grid cabin. It had everything we needed for a cozy, unplugged getaway. We enjoyed cooking our meals in the quaint kitchen and curling up by the wood-burning stove at night. The host was great - she gave us a tour of her garden and shared some of the history and workings of the farm. There are a few trails through the property that are bike-friendly as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful respite.
Nestled in the redwoods, Waldhaus is a gorgeous property with 4 tent cabins surrounding a main building that consists of kitchen/dining area and bathrooms.
The hosts have gone out of their way to make sure guests have all the creature comforts - kitchen is stocked with plates, cookware, basic pantry items, the bathrooms have toiletries and towels in case you’ve forgotten any. There are power strips in the tent cabins, and heating blankets to keep you toasty at night. There is wi-fi in case you absolutely need it, but no streaming.
There are a couple of short loop trails around the property that are perfect for a post-meal stroll, and another trail that leads into Portola Redwoods State Park.
We loved our stay and we hope to come back with friends to show them this redwood loveliness!
Thoroughly enjoyed staying at this site – only a 30 minute drive from Livermore down a lovely meandering road. Beautiful and convenient base for all kinds of local adventures – wineries, Del Valle reservoir and a bar & grill are all nearby. Bonus if you're a cyclist – Mines Road is a popular route.
Arroyo Creekside is in an easy to spot location right off the road. Be sure to to hike the short trail up the hill to the lounge patio – there's a rustic cabinet up there to stash cold beverages while you take in the view of the rolling hills. Trevor and Rachael are great hosts – if you have any questions, they're the next driveway after the campsite.
This is a peaceful and sprawling site with lovely garden grounds and trails maintained by its owner Keith. One trail leads to a vista overlooking the Yuba River Canyon, the other is a 15 minute walk down to a swimming hole in the Yuba River known as Mushroom Hole.
While you're staying at the ranch, a composting toilet and shower are available for communal use. The property is in bear country, so food/toiletries should be stored appropriately. Be sure to bring coolers for perishables. Potable water is available.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here—it's a quiet place to decompress, stargaze and take in the Tahoe National Forest. Cathy and Keith are great hosts—they're available to show you around and answer questions if needed.
