About this listing
Charming, affordable, private, house set in a small redwood grove. 15 min walk to Trinidad on a country lane. Queen bed in master with organic sheets. Comfortable twin bunk beds in tiny second bedroom. Bonus playroom. Level 2 electric car charging outlet (NEMA 14-50). Pets considered on case-by-case.
I grew up in the area but work in Silicon Valley. We purchased the house in 2006 as a summer place to bring our young daughters so they could visit grandparents and family. We have so many fond memories of our summers here. We still love to visit the cottage and now want you to create special memories here as well!
Ideally setup for a couple with 1 or 2 kids. One of the most affordable places near Trinidad for such a family. Not guaranteed child-safe for very young children, need to be safe in bunk bed as well
Note: Even though the place is very private, a few guests mentioned the lack of blinds on the bedroom windows so we installed some nice cordless blinds in the bedrooms.
Access to main house, 1 acre lawn, redwood grove and 1 acre forest to explore. Charcoal BBQ, full kitchen, washer/dryer, coffee maker, microwave, toaster. hair drier, iron and board, wifi and basic TV, pack-n-play.
Interaction with guests
I am remote, but Paula who cleans the house lives on the lane and could be reached if need be.
Quiet country lane. In a bit of a sun belt (by Humboldt standards) since often just out of the low fog bank. Easy access to beaches, hikes and town. Nice walk to Murphy's Market in Trinidad. Central access to redwood parks to the north, towns to the south and beaches/Trinidad just down the lane. Privacy from neighbors. There is a nearby quarry that very occasionally operates and makes noise, but when operating quits early around 3pm.
10 min walk to Trinidad bus stop
Other things to note
Check-in/out times are often flexible depending on other bookings. Check with us if you need early/late check-in or out.
Although private and you can barely see the neighbor houses through the woods, since it is so quiet sound carries so be respectful. Please have any dogs sleep on a dog bed in the laundry room. This is still our loved vacation home so please try to take care of it like we do.

I grew up in Humboldt and my parents and brothers still live there. I am a software engineer in Silicon Valley. My wife is Finnish and the influences show throughout the property. Our two teen age daughters have enjoyed visiting the cottage and seeing their grandparents and cousins since they were little girls. While visiting the cottage I telecommute from an office I made in one of the sheds on the property.
