Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We had visited The Sea Ranch many times over the years and wanted to come more often. We purchased the Redwood Cottage in 1998, spent some time putting our imprint on it and have enjoyed sharing it with many visitors since then.

Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch, CA, USA:
The 'walk-in cabins' are a unique group of small but well designed homes with a minimal footprint in keeping with the original Sea Ranch concept of living lightly on the land. Each is surrounded by 'commons' rather than having lots which are contiguous with their neighbors. They have everything you need in one open space, plus a loft for sleeping. When we had visited The Sea Ranch we typically stayed in one of the conventional Sea Ranch houses. They were lovely, but we kept thinking all we need is 'a little cabin in the woods' . When we learned about these unique homes it just seemed right for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Waking up to see the towering redwoods through two huge skylights is always amazing. One of us is a runner and hiker who loves to run/hike the many trails right from the cabin. One of us enjoys the peacefulness of the forest with the ocean in sight. We both look forward to relaxing in the spa and watching the stars overhead. A short drive takes us to easy access to the bluff trail to be close to the always changing ocean.
