A rustic, cozy cottage nestled in the majestic redwoods of Sonoma county makes the perfect weekend getaway or month retreat. Relax in 2 acres of landscaped garden or drive to convenient restaurants, the ocean, or San Francisco.

The space

This is perfect for the person/persons who love nature. It is a cozy converted chicken coop with an added deck and outdoor shower. The fridge, microwave and hot plate make it easy to stay in although the adorable town of Occidental with its delicious restaurants are fun.

Guest access

Guests have their own sauna, use of outdoor hot tub, fire pit in the shadow of a 2000+ year old redwood tree, wander through beautiful gardens and walk a 900 square foot labyrinth.

Interaction with guests

I am available to give my guests information and assistance, however I work during the day.

Other things to note

There is no TV available but if you bring a lap top there are movies available. Prefer no smokers. Pets are welcome but owner must be responsible for any damage they may cause.

Pets allowed
Family/kid friendly
Indoor fireplace

Sleeping arrangements
Bedroom 1

House Rules

I expect people to behave respectably and responsibly within nature and to remember that loud noises carry on a mountain so to keep music to a normal sound level.

Had a wonderful time here with our pup Ollie! He enjoyed exploring the enclosed redwoods and gardens, and we loved simply relaxing and reading on the patio, on one of the many benches in the redwoods, in the hot tub, on a shared hammock... lots of reasons to just slow down life and take it all in. :)

Josephine is a wonderful host. The accomodations and property are beautiful and have the best personal touches. She is very inviting and had some great tips to offer for dining and exploring the area. We would definitely recommend Josephine's place!!

Romance + redwoods+magic!! extraordinary air bnb! we needed to rest, restore, recharge and be in nature...with a fireplace, hot tub, private outdoor sauna, shower and bathroom! this was a memorable getaway less than 2 hrs from SF. josephine fills her property with love and grace and every detail you can imagine for upscale glamping with touches of artful rustic living. the property has paths which lead to redwood trees growing in circles. inside each tree circle is a goddess statue or a desk and chair or a bench for your use. the magic of the redwoods surrounds you while you soak in her pristine hot tub and look up at the pattern of the redwood branches creating a canopy overhead. stargazing from the tub tub is a must. josephine, a gracious host, showed us how to light the fireplace inside the cabin--another must. thank you josephine--we will visit you again and again! cruise through occidental, grab food at the groove natural market and head to your redwood cabin less than 7 min away.

BEST PLACE I'VE EVER STAYED Just like the pictures, wonderful host, close to town, but feels like you're another world away. If your goal is to recenter, reconnect, or just enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place.

This place is pure magic. We had a wonderful stay and are already trying to figure out when we can escape to Josephine's again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Josephine's place. The gardens are amazing and really nice to walk our dogs around in the morning. Everything was very organized and orderly and exactly as expected. Best part was sitting on the porch in the evening with the fire on after a hot shower. We also took advantage of how close the cabin is to Bodega Bay and spent the day at the beach. Such a great location!

I connect to a Higher Power through prayer, meditation and Nature. My gardens are a manifestation of that. I love sharing my slightly whimsical sanctuary with people and their pets. I have been a chiropractor for 30 years. Although my office is in Santa Rosa, I am available u…
