About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Cabin in the Woods
Don't let its rustic charm let you think that you are in a shack and totally off the grid. The 2,000 Sq Ft. Treehouse includes satellite TV with premium channels, high speed internet (wired and Wi-Fi), large modern gourmet kitchen with a Wolf gas range and upgraded appliances, a wine barrel hot tub and a full luxury bathroom with large walk-in shower.
If you want to stay close, the town of Sunol has Bosco's Bones and Brew, a restaurant and saloon featuring 'Bosco', the famous dog mayor of Sunol, plumbed, mounted on the bar and serving Bosco's Brew in only the way a dog can. On the way, stop at Elliston Vineyards and sample some of their award winning wines. On most weekends, catch a steam or diesel locomotive from the Sunol train depot into the historic town of Niles to explore the silent film era. Hiking and bike trails are minutes away in the Sunol and Pleasanton Ridge Regional Wildernesses.
You will most certainly see deer and turkey on the 2.9 mile drive to the Treehouse. The road literally forces you to relax and unwind as you drive under the canopy of trees...all fitting for when you walk in the front door at the end of the day.

- Minimum Age Limit For Renters:
We welcome children at the Treehouse, but the cabin is not child proof. Inside, the stairs are narrow and steep. Outside, the terrain can be dangerous. The hillside is steep with loose debris and poison oak grows wild. The creek can have swift water currents and rocks can be slippery. The cabin steps are located right off the road and can be a blind spot for drivers. The hot tub has restrictions for use by kids. We do not provide child seating or bedding. Please contact the owner if you have any questions....moreless

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We were both born in the San Francisco Bay Area - less than 20 miles from the Treehouse. We have always appreciated the deversity, culture and variety the San Francisco Bay Area offers. Although there is a multitude of activities and things to do in the metro area, the cabin provides us an escape from the normal 'rat race'.
Why the Owner Chose Sunol, CA, USA:
Sunol is a unique town. Steeped in history, the town was once a stop on the famed Transcontinental Railroad. Although the tracks have been decommissioned from freight and passenger use, the station and tracks are used for weekend public train rides between Sunol and the old silent movie town of Niles. The town became famous in the early 80's by electing a dog as 'mayor' - not once, but TWICE.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Feel like you are camping in the woods...while living in luxury. Isolated enough that you can decompress...but close enough to be in Silicon Valley or San Jose airport in 30 minutes or less. Stoneridge Shopping Center is 15 minutes away. Paragon Outlet Mall is 20 minutes away. 2 golf courses within 10 minutes. Hiking is literally in your back yard. Two (Fremont or Pleasanton/Dublin) Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations are 20 minutes away and can get you to downtown San Francisco in 45 minutes.
