This cabin, built in 1906, the second built in the Mount Hermon Christian Conference community, is nestled amongst majestic giant Redwoods hundreds of years old, with lovely Zayante Creek running just below the cabin. Often, kids are down playing in the creek before the car is even unloaded ! Five minute walk to the Mt. Hermon Auditorium.
Enjoy the 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 nature trails through the redwoods located in the Mount Hermon Conference Center grounds…are literally outside your front door. This place is a photographer’s dream location.
Those wanting a little more excitement might want to try the Mount Hermon Canopy Tour, a two hour tour of the Redwoods which includes six Zip Lines and two Sky Bridges ! Call for reservations (1.831.430.4357) or book online:
