Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

The perfect wooded retreat - Nearly 3000 square feet of serenity in this deluxe home tucked away in the woods!

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!

Continue down into the sunken living room with large sectional sofa, antique chairs, cozy window seats and get ready to enjoy watching movies on your own Netflix account or cable T.V. on the 100 inch movie screen! The movie screen is easy to operate with a remote control, desktop computer and wall-mounted projector all provided.

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.

The first floor bathroom is large, and includes a combination tub/shower and two shower heads.

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 bathroom offers a stall shower and large dressing area.

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. Owner lives locally and is happy to assist guests with any aspect of the premises.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a lot of fun while staying at Forest Creek Lodge. Thank you for your feedback. We will take a look at trimming back the bushes back. Forest Creek Lodge is exactly 1.2 miles to Moonstone Beach. It is an easy drive and one of our local favorite beaches, especially for kids and dogs. There are other beaches nearby in Trinidad. In fact, if you take Scenic Drive North for just 2 miles you will see some of our most spectacular beaches including Houda Point, Luffenholz, Baker Beach, Indian Beach. Trinidad State Beach is another wonderful beach. All of these beaches are within 3.5 miles.

Reviewer Comments:

We took our 3 adult children for a long weekend to Humboldt County. Flew into Oakland where one of them lives, and drove up to Humboldt. There really isn't anything wrong with this house, but the layout is a little funky. It's a shame to be in the middle of the redwoods but the master bedroom is oriented to the driveway and neighbor's house, and the beautiful redwoods behind are blocked off by walls, with only small windows. The outside patio is pleasant, and you feel like you are all alone in the big trees, and the house is just a short drive from the National Park and good places to eat in Arcata or Trinidad. The upstairs extra bedroom has to either share the master bath, or go downstairs everytime to the hall bathroom, and the loft bed area is a long way from the downstairs bath. Great kitchen though, everything you need.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and visit to the Redwoods. This sprawling home has been a labor of love by the owner who built the house overtime and raised her 3 children in the Redwoods. Orienting the house to face Southwest was purposeful as this is the way to maximize sun otherwise the house and windows would have been completely shaded by the Redwoods. Sharing the 2 bathrooms can be a little unusual but hasn't been much of an issue for most families and friends who are coming to gather. We do disclose this information in the description so that any guests uncomfortable with this arrangement are well aware. Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. - Jonna

Reviewer Comments:

This house was so awesome. It's tucked away, very quiet, yet near everything we wanted to see in the National Forest. I wish we could have stayed longer. The hot tub was the best at night and the movie/tv screen was so unique and fun! The kitchen is beautifully designed and decorated. The owners have thought of everything for your stay and we truly did not want to leave this fabulous property. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.

We had a terrific time staying at this peaceful, spacious, and well-equipped home in the amazing setting of the Redwood Forest! This home's location is central to many scenic hikes, trails, and beaches. Also, the town of Trinidad is very cute and is only located a few minutes away. Our family appreciated the movie screen with Netflix, Hulu and web access, and the hot tub was also a big hit! We enjoyed having meals on the deck, and there is a propane heater if you get chilly! The grounds are welcoming and the tether ball was a fun distraction. This is a fabulous place to get away and relax - good for families or groups - enjoy!
