This cabin, built in 1906, the second in the Mt. Hermon community, is nestled amongst giant Redwoods hundreds of years old, with a lovely brook running just below the cabin. Five minute walk to Mt. Hermon Auditorium.
This is most often described as an extraordinarily serene setting. Peaceful. Quiet. Romantic. Crisp, clean air and blue sky. Guests often come to this getaway to write, catch up on some reading in front of the wood burning stove, or just experience a time of reflection. Great hiking trails are literally outside your front door. This place is a photographer’s dream location.
Others are drawn to the many opportunities available nearby : World Class golf courses such as Pasatiempo (10 minutes away) designed by Alister Mackenzie who designed Augusta National, site of the Masters or Pebble Beach and Spyglass less than an hour away in Carmel; the Monterey Bay Aquarium; fabulous beaches in Capitola and Santa Cruz (15 minutes); Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, an oceanfront amusement park; best shopping in the Bay area at Stevens Creek and Santana Row in San Jose (45 minutes);many antique stores in Capitola, Aptos, Felton, and Los Gatos; wonderful restaurants throughout the area. Plus all of the excitement of San Francisco is just 90 minutes away!
An absolutely 'don't miss' experience is walking the 3 mile oceanside Walkway (sidewalk) along the Santa Cruz Beach. To better envision this experience, we suggest you google 'Santa Cruz beach walkway '.
You will find this rustic cabin to be in excellent condition and beautifully furnished. The first floor has: a small kitchen with a table and chairs overlooking the wooded forest; an inviting living room with two couches and other seating facing the wood burning stove; one bedroom with a brass queen bed (regular) with French Doors opening to the living room and the wood burning stove; and another queen bed (comfy 12' mattress) with a TV set. The lower level includes: a king bed (12' mattress) and an ante room with several sleeping pads plus an up and down bunk bed for children or smaller size adults. Each bedroom has its own tiny bathroom with shower. These showers are definitely one person showers! Lots of antique furniture. Plenty of books.
There are decks completely surrounding the cabin as well as outside the KIng Bedroom on the lower level. All with spectacular views.
This cabin, having been built over 100 years ago is single wall construction, except downstairs which was built in the 1970s. This means there is no insulation except the lower floor. There is no central heating. Since it is rather in the winter. you will need a sweater inside and you will want to keep the fire going as well as the portable electric heaters in each bedroom. At night, you may want the wood burning stove going all night or use a heated blanket.
We welcome you to a wonderful experience in this very special place on God's earth.

This was the perfect spot for my wife and I to have a weekend retreat in the redwoods. We loved reading , lounging, playing cribbage and grilling on the massive deck. While on it, the sounds of the rushing creek underneath, views of the stars poking through the boughs of the coast redwoods and comfy deck furniture enlivened the spirt and relaxed the mind. We enjoyed the trails and many bridges, creek-dipping spots and beauty of the surrounding land. Inside the cabin, we had a super-comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen for cooking and warm den for reading/playing games. There were several other bedrooms and areas we did not use - but envision returning with close friends/family. There are a couple neighboring cabins and we got the sense that there is a nice community here, but felt completely alone and in solitude while on the expansive deck that only looks solely upon trees and trails - or while inside. Children and others sometimes walk the trails far below the house and over the stream. Don (owner) and Linda (property manager) were lightning-speed responsive to the request for booking and had set up everything in advance so the stay was carefree, meeting all our needs. I would return here in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to others.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Hermon:
We wanted a complete getaway from the hectic life of Southern California. We could have purchased a vacation home any place in the world. We chose this because we wanted the privacy, beauty, and serenity it offers. And, because we are avid golfers, we appreciate the fabulous golf courses in the area. And, it is always a thrill to do the three mile walk along the Santa Cruz coastline.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We just like being there. Hanging out on the deck or in front of the wood burning stove with a good book or close friends.
