What a wonderful view. Even had a great night's sleep on the sofa bed.

Those 64 stair steps got me in shape, though. Very roomy and clean. Would stay here again.

Overall good stay but be aware of traffic, thus road noise, and 60 + steps from road to door.

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was very clean. Bed in master just OK. Great view. Responsive owner. Convenient to town and Boulder Creek Trail.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 2-year old son, dog, and I stayed here and had an excellent time. Barry (the owner) was great. The location was perfect and the view was amazing. The clime up to the cabin was tough with luggage and toddler and there was nowhere for my dog to do his business without risking falling down the mountain side, but I knew all of this going in so I can't hold that against the property. However, I did have to dock it one star because the bed, couch, and living room chair were all very uncomfortable and, being prone to back problems, that was an major issue for me. Aside from that, this property was excellent; very clean and had everything we needed.

Mountain-like setting but not exactly peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

The property is located in a beautiful canyon surrounded by boulders and trees. The cabin is beautiful inside and has had extensive updates. The hike up the long staircase is worth the view. The downside is that the street below is extremely busy and difficult to cross on foot or when pulling out of the property. Also, the craziness that ensued over the 4th of July at the park across the street was a bit disturbing (trash thrown from vehicles, loud drunkenness, and individuals urinating in the parking areas where our car was located. None of this is the fault of the owner! But if you are looking for a quite cabin to "chill out," this is not that location. We were glad that we had day trips that took us out most days and returned in the evening when things settled down. The owner was wonderful and very attentive, and we very much appreciated his hospitality. Lots of fun things to do in the area!
