The Redwood Retreat, easily located off highway 17/Summit, is nestled among hundred-year-old redwoods. The guest area is the lower portion of the main house, and has its own private entrance, as well as a spacious private deck to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature. You're in close proximity to hiking, biking, wine tasting, and swimming at the beach.
The Retreat has two spacious bedrooms with queen-sized beds, a living room, bathroom/shower with heated flooring, laundry room with washer/dryer, and private deck.
The living room has a large-screen television as well as a ping-pong table.
There is an eating area with a warming kitchen (microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and toaster.) Ground coffee and a selection of teas are provided.
The private deck is peaceful and romantic. You can relax while listening to the birds sing. Sometimes you can spot deer coming to graze in the backyard.
The guest suite has its own private entrance, as well as parking spaces for up to three vehicles. We will provide you with a key code to let yourself in.
We live on a private road, which means that traffic is minimal, the area is quiet. Five minutes down the road is Summit Store, where you can not only find essentials, but also enjoy an espresso bar, deli, and sushi spot.
This is the place to stay if you're in need of some peace and quiet, away from --but not far from--the Bay Area. We are 30 minutes from San Jose, an hour from San Francisco.
Or, if you're wanting to hit the beach (but not the usual weekend traffic on 17), there are numerous places to choose from within thirty minutes - Capitola, Aptos, Natural Bridges, Santa Cruz Boardwalk.
We also have excellent hiking and biking trails nearby.
