About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Only god can make a tree. Probably because it's so hard to get the bark on. Woody Allen.

The Littlehouse is located less than 10 minutes off of Highway One, and is accessible by a good road in all seasons. It is situated in a redwood forest in a canyon along a tumbling stream. Pleasantly isolated, it enjoys sunny days and cool nights. Its amenities, delightful furnishings, full kitchen, gas fireplace, luxurious bed and bath, generous closet area, private deck, are appropriate for either short or long term visits. Coastal and forest hiking trails and scenic beaches are nearby. Carmel with its delightful shops and many restaurants is a short drive away as is the Big Sur Village, Nepenthe and Pfeiffer Beach . Simply a delight.

Marketing these days is too much with us. Flowery modifiers, lyrically poetic descriptions, vivid adjectives wash over us all day, everyday. I can't take it. Just know that the LittleHouse is a special lodging in a beautiful place.

Littlehouse in the Redwoods

Breathtaking....modern but secluded!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time during our stay at Littlehouse in the Redwoods! We got in later than expected the first night and Jerry was kind enough to meet us on Hwy 1 and lead us through the canyon to our cabin. It was a good thing because it is about a 10-12 minute drive winding in and out to the cabin. But in the daylight the views are simply breathtaking! The breakfast that was included the first morning was perfect. The Littlehouse in the Redwoods had everything we needed and had a great location to visit several other wonderful spots. During our stay here we visited Big Sur River Inn, Pfieffer State park, Point Lobos State Reserve, Garrapatos State Park, Mission Ranch (Carmel by the Sea), Cannery Row and kyacking (Monterey), and Rocky Point. Everything was fantastic!

Quiet, peaceful, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had great time celebrating 10 year anniversary at the little house. Everything is very well thought thru from welcome breakfast to all the small detail touch put into the house. Gerry and Maureen were very sweet and kind host. They even thought of getting us champagne for our celebration. Just one thing to keep in mind is that the place is remote and not easily accessible off main road so driving after dark is challenging for city flocks.

Romantic House Nestled in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a rental house to celebrate my birthday and came across this beautiful home. Let me just say that this house was much more than I expected and the owners Maureen and Gerry were very accommodating. Upon arrival, Gerry helped carry our luggage and showed us around the Littlehouse he created. He also mentioned the places close by to visit, such as Carmel by the Sea. I was amazed by the beauty of this location; one minute you are in the forest and drive a few more minutes you will reach the view of the ocean. This location is having the best of both worlds. The house was tastefully decorated with plenty of amenities, therefore it was very convenient to cook in the kitchen. My husband and I also enjoyed sitting on the balcony to view the redwood trees. The house is made with such extensive detail, I can see a lot of thought went into the creation of the house from every angle and window. The Littlehouse is not only surrounded by beautiful redwoods, it also has a tumbling stream that delivers a relaxing rain sound that can be heard even with the doors closed! I had a fabulous birthday mini vacation in this home. My husband and I plan on visiting again. If you need to get away from all the hustle and bustle, this is definitely the place to be.
