This unique Dome House feels like being inside a giant tree. It was built by civil rights attorney Sherwin Shayne and his friends over several years beginning in 1970. You will occupy the upper two levels, an expansive open floor plan with no interior walls (other than the lower level Bath) finished entirely in wood. Large windows provide views of the forest and birds. Skylights for stargazing & moon beams, and a private deck for listening to soothing owl song.
Conveniently located halfway between Carmel & Big Sur! Enjoy a spectacular drive along the breathtaking Hwy 1 to a serene and lovely forest road to arrive at this unique and "glamour-rustic" dome home (upper level) with views of the redwoods from all around the house. You'll feel like you're living inside a giant tree! The open 2-story floor plan contains a luscious Master Bedroom loft, a futon in living room that sleeps two, and a nook with a single bed. It has a luxurious ambiance with several comfy areas to sit and relax or read. Two full baths with tubs and one with shower.
Larger common-area courtyard with a propane fire pit (shared by other guests on the property.) Art Gallery open 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Essence Portraits by advance appointment with Sofanya. Cell phones and GPS will not work here -- plan ahead. Telephone available in the Art Gallery for U.S. calls and 911 in an emergency.
Other things to note
Heated only with wood stove, and all firewood is provided. It gets chilly here most evenings and mornings, even in Summer -- bring jackets & sweaters.
I ask that you not smoke at all anywhere on the property, and please no wax candles or incense. No parking for RV's or large vehicles unless approved in writing in advance. No tent camping on the property.

I am so pleased to welcome guests to stay here at my "Jewel in the Forest" with choices for several very "glamorustic" magical houses and cottages. It is so rewarding to know that people can come here to stay for a vacation, business trip or even a retreat for healing and leave with wonderful peace and memories and a desire to come back!
I am an artist so Blessed to live and work in this paradise forest in between Big Sur and Carmel.
I'm inspired by the knowing that each of us are nature and not separate from it. This is the basis of my art and healing work. People often ask me what kind of art I make and the truth is "Life is the Art"!
I work in many mediums and love the exploration and discovery of art as a medium for the universe of knowledge to come through the paintings and sculpture. I have for many years enjoyed welcoming people from all over the world into my gallery & studio here on the "Jewel in the Forest" property. We also have a small area I call "Carabella's Theatre" where we hold seasonal gatherings, weddings, workshops etc. I am so pleased to welcome guests to stay here at my "Jewel in the Forest" with choices for several very "glamorustic" magical houses and cottages.
