Peaceful, rustic elegance.

  • 5 of 5

A much-needed retreat after the Carr Fire destroyed our house in Shasta County.

Away for just a few days from the paperwork, phone calls, emails, and constant strategizing.

A real treat for the soul, including our sorely-missed pup.

Great location and cute house but horrible beds

  • 3 of 5

The house and grounds are amazing and the house itself is kept clean and is very welcoming. Unfortunately, the beds are another thing all together and our trip was ruined because of them. The first night my husband and I slept in the queen bed and our friends took the other bedroom. Our friends were unable to sleep in the double bed, so they tried to use the futon in the living room. I tossed and turned all night in pain from the bed and woke up in tears while our friends did the same in the living room and no one was able to get any sleep. The next day was spent in "recovery mode" from not sleeping and since the futon was placed at a very bad angle in respect to the tv we had to move it to the other side of the room. Our friends ended up leaving that evening instead of risking another night of no sleep while trying to salvage what we had left of a getaway, I tried my hand at the double bed and my husband had the queen to himself. Sleep was better but not great which left us still tired and just ready to go home and unable to truly enjoy the house and property.

It's unfortunate that our trip was ruined by these beds because we had dreams of playing games, having a bbq, roaming through the forest and more but no one had any energy to do any of it because we were so tired from not sleeping. The house and grounds have a lot to offer, just be forewarned about the beds and maybe bring a mattress topper or some form of extra cushion to get a decent night's sleep.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry about your discomfort with our beds and futon and that this is the first we’ve heard about it. We have had no previous negative comments about them and subsequent guests have reported sleeping comfortably. We aspire to provide the most pleasant experience possible for our guests.

Welcoming & Private

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully clean and tidy. Warmly furnished with lots of TLC. The owner was very generous in the way she opened her home to this intensely private space. In early August when we visited, the lot was completely shaded, but 'sun' and great communities were close at hand.

Truly lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cottage in the redwoods and it was just as relaxing a get-away as the first. It is in idyllic surroundings and the cottage itself is beautifully appointed with everything you need in the kitchen and bath amenities. We cooked more this trip and enjoyed eating and reading on the deck. Thank you, Jayne, for making this such a cozy, homey place for us to recharge our batteries!
