The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The neighbourhood

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.

Getting around

10 min walk to Trinidad bus stop

Loved this cozy, beautiful cabin in the redwoods just minutes from Trinidad and the ocean. Beautiful coastal hikes are right near by. The house is perfect for four people. This stay was truest the most relaxing trip away from home ever. All you need is provided.

Lovely cottage tucked in the woods. Ben's place was quiet and secluded. Our young daughters loved the play room and bunk beds.

Ideal location for visiting the redwoods with close access to the coastal and inland forests! Lovely, spacious house that exudes comfort but also has a rustic, cabin-y feel. Really nice kitchen that is well equipped with kitchenware for cooking more than basic meals!

What a charming and wonderful cottage! Loved the freestanding fireplace, very nice and keeps the place warm. Really appreciated the extra heater in master bedroom and the washer and dryer. Comfy bed and really appreciated the book of things to see and do, menus of local eateries etc and overall great experience. Great communication with our host and a lot of really nice touches throughout the house and all that you can imagine in order to cook dinner! Great location to all that we wanted to see and do. We spent one week at the cottage and 2 weeks total in California enjoying all the big trees and all of humboldt county.

Ben User ProfileBen is a superhost.

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.
