Enter into a gourmet cook's dream kitchen. This large island kitchen has granite counter tops, large 6 burner professional gas stove and all stainless appliances. The attached back entrance enters through laundry room with washer and dryer. Gleaming hardwood floors complete the kitchen and adjacent dining area which looks out onto a redwood forest and offers window seats to relax and enjoy the view! This area has a kerosene wall heater that keeps the open kitchen/dining room quite warm.

Antique lovers will delight in the many beautiful pieces of collectible furnishing including the Pre-Civil War piano. The vaulted, wood lined ceilings in the living room create an expansive yet cozy feeling made complete with ambiance and warmth of the wood burning stove. The living room opens up with double French doors onto the completely private back deck, next to the gentle flowing waters of forest creek, nestled amidst ferns, gorgeous redwood groves, and giant primitive old-growth stumps. Head upstairs to the sleeping loft above the living room with a queen sized bed and sofa. The stairs leading to the loft boast a unique very private corner window seat looking out into the redwoods.
Just off the kitchen is the 1st bedroom and bathroom. This bedroom is carpeted and nicely appointed with a Queen bed. This bedroom is on one level with the bathroom and kitchen, and works well for any guests with limited mobility, or unable to navigate stairs. There are 2 bathrooms on the first floor, one is large, and includes a combination tub/shower and two shower heads. The second full bathroom is located off the laundry room and has a beautifully tiled stall shower. This bathroom is convenient for guests staying in the loft or for rinsing off before and after using the hot tub.
A second staircase leads upstairs to the Master Suite and Tree House room. Aptly named "Tree House Room" this incredible bedroom w/ a Queen bed has 2 walls of windows overlooking a redwood forest that make you feel like you're sleeping in a tree house. Across the hall is the Master Suite which boasts even more coziness with skylights, reading nooks, window seats, a Queen bed and more beautiful wooded views. The upstairs bathroom offers a stall shower and large dressing area shared by the Master bedroom and Tree house bedroom. All three bedrooms and loft offer electric space heaters for warmth as this house does not have central heating.
Forest Creek Lodge is located just above the coastal fog line, yet stays cool as a cucumber deep in the trees. Badminton/volleyball net, croquet set, and tether-ball are provided. The lodge has a wrap-around, covered deck that lights up at night creating a magical atmosphere. Enjoy barbecuing outside, swinging on the porch swing or soaking in the 4 person hot tub. This home has so many nooks and crannies to enjoy, everyone can spread out and find their special spot. Kids will love all the fun sleeping areas, and what a great place to play hide and seek! Groups of 10 will be considered with an additional charge of $25/per person/per night. This is a great lodging choice for guests coming to attend a wedding at Moonstone Beach which is just a mile and a half away.
