Mount Hermon cabin description

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 Stanford Mall plus 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 guests can enjoy all of the excitement of San Francisco, 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; another queen bed (comfy 12' mattress) with a TV set (All Premium channels available upon request. A huge outside deck with a Redwood Table with seating for 8 to 10, depending...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! The cabin is full of antique furniture and 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.

Dining on the deck is an option: propane grill accommodates 12 steaks or burgers; Redwood table seats 8-10 comfortably.

We welcome you to a wonderful experience in this very special place on God's earth.

Special Note: This is a quiet residential neighborhood and 'partying' is unwelcome here. Also, for those who need to stay 'connected', WI FI is in the Cabin. And, those interested in late night TV, we have a 32' Flat Screen TV with all premium stations for your viewing pleasure.

                          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.
