31 Pine Avenue is located in the town of Mount Hermon, the heart of which is the Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center. Great speakers and activities. The grounds are hilly covered with tall trees with beautiful hiking trails. Zyante Creek is a fabulous place to hike, wade in the stream, canoe, and enjoy spectacular nature scenes. The Roaring Camp railroad is nearby for those who enjoy a ride on old steam trains. And the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park next door has some of the most beautiful tall redwood trees on the central coast. The deck of 31 Pine provides a relaxing place to look at the trees, hills, and birds.

Cozy Cabin at Mount Hermon

  • 4 of 5

My family and in-laws stayed in the bottom floor of this house and had a wonderful trip. There were 7 of us and there were even a couple of single beds left to spare. The owners were wonderful to communicate and made our Mount Hermon excursion a joy. We were able to cook many of our meals in their small kitchen (2 burner stove, toaster oven, and microwave). One thing to note is that it has a really steep driveway so it's best if you have a car and the legs to handle it.

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 love to take trips with our family friends who are a family of 4. So we booked this nice place to get away from our everyday lives. It is a very nice place with great places to hike, wonderful views and only a 15-20 minutes away from the Santa Cruz boardwalk. The house space is very tight, it's not really a 3 bedrooms, it's more like 2 and an extra bed as you enter the house which is open to the kitchen. Plus only one bathroom which was really hard with two families (7 people). It was a tight fit but we made it work and the couple who rents it is great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this complementary review. All of our renters have stated that they enjoyed their stay at Arbor House; the name of our rental unit. The space is tight for more than 2 adults with 4 or more children; but it works. Most renters have 5 to 7 people including 2 adults. The availability of sleeping places for 7 to 9 provides good flexibility of sleeping combinations that has been very beneficial when fewer people are renting because it permits sleeping arrangements that fit their needs. The living space is made much larger by the large deck with lounge chairs, tables and a grill. Three doors to the deck make it very convenient. The deck is a great place for eating, lounging, and various activities. Since Arbor House is located on two larger than normal lots on the side of a hill, privacy is much better than most any other rental unit in Mount Hermon and the view is pleasant. We will be pleased to serve you.
