A nice place to have coffee outside in the morning. Very close to State Park/hiking trails.

Very cute cabin feel. We got a cabin with the river view and loved it. We want to plan another trip back for a longer stay

Nice cabin in the redwoods

Pros: It's in the redwoods and they have a nice deck and it's great to hear the river which runs right next to the cabins. The set-up is very nice.
Cons: Just the smell inside our cabin and possibly a more comfortable single bed and futon.
Location: Henry Cowell State Park is very close and has trails and huge redwood trees. Santa Cruz is a short drive away with beaches and lots of things to do.
There was a horrible odor (strong cleaning product/masking other smell?) that was so strong my husband couldn't sleep. Single bed had horrible smelling sheets and futon was like sleeping on springs. Double bed was fine. Leaving the windows open all night helped a little, but not much. We were in #6 so I don't know if all cabins smelled, but there's no reason to pay money to sleep in a place like that.
