Description from the owner
Originally a small cabin in a vacation resort, the property has been upgraded and expanded for year-round living. The charm of a 1400 square foot, three bedroom cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains amid the Redwoods of Boulder Creek is augmented with custom stone floors, custom wood work throughout, an eclectic art collection, a good supply of DVD movies and books, a contemporary dining area, fully equipped electric kitchen, cathedral and open beam ceilings, a wood-burning stove, eleven skylights and many windows. Look out any window and you will see Redwood trees. The overall surroundings are reminiscent of the Northern California vacation res...Read more
3 Bedroom Cabin In Redwoods of Boulder Creek CA
Boulder Creek, California
Additional Location Information
"Little John's Cabin" is located on Kings Highway (which is not really a highway, just a little road), in the Robin Hood's Retreat area of Boulder Creek. You will feel safe and experience the peace of living in a small neighborhood of similar homes, nestled in the Redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. There are no sidewalks, or crowds. Occasionally, you will hear a chainsaw, as someone cuts firewood, or the sounds of children exploring or playing in the woods, but the area is otherwise very quiet. This is the country, pure and simple, and the surroundings are rustic.
There is a spacious yet private, front deck, and a rear porch that runs across the entire width of the house and overlooks the seasonal Robin Hood Creek. The creek is in a ravine that is fun for kids, but if you have toddlers, please keep them away from this area. Sometimes deer come through the property and you can watch them grazing or simply plodding by. Other wildlife can also be observed if you are vigilant. A hammock is also provided, so you can gaze at the trees from another perspective, take a nap, or read a book. Of course, a barbecue is included.
This 1400 square foot home is ideally situated for people residing in the San Francisco Bay Area who want to spend more time at their retreat than time (and gas money) getting to it. It is also perfect for travelers from afar, who wish to experience life among the Redwood trees and have a home base from which to explore.
The home is within walking distance to the Boulder Creek Golf & Country Club (which is open to the public), less than 5 miles from historic downtown Boulder Creek and the other small towns that dot Highway 9 as it meanders toward the Coast, about 5 miles outside the main gates of Big Basin State Park, and 30 minutes from the beaches of Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. You can visit the wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountains, ride the Roaring Camp Railroad, explore by car or hike the Santa Cruz Mountains and enjoy the Santa Cruz Boardwalk Amusement Park. During the summer, Loch Lomond Reservoir rents row boats and paddle boats, and is open for fishing, hiking, and picnicking. You can even take a day trip to Monterey Bay and enjoy a scenic drive along the way.
The house is located approximately 1 1/2 hours, or 80 miles from downtown San Francisco, and about 40 minutes from San Jose International Airport.
There is ample parking in front of the house. There is also a public bus stop within walking distance.
