We love our cabins and rooms and hope you do too! Built in 1959, they are spread out over five acres of meadow and woods and every single cabin and room is entirely unique, and furnished with salvage, and rehabbed furniture and furnishings. You'll find all kinds of fun and funky touches, like: vintage Viewmasters, unusual mid-century lamps, large wall murals, and classic games and puzzles.

* Our cabins are "housekeeping" cabins - that means that once you settle in, we won't bug you unless you'd like us to. If you'd like housekeeping to pay you a visit, get more firewood or fresh towels, just let us know. Keeping things simple like this keeps our rates down (and the earth a little happier too - no unnecessary washing and electricity!).
We also have all the practical things covered too: each has a deck, private bathroom, TV/DVD player, refrigerator, barbecue, and coffeemaker. Many rooms have kitchenettes and most have fireplaces. The cabins also share a magical hot tub in the woods.
Full descriptions, photos, and rates for our cabins are below.
Cabin 1 - NATURE
NATURE is cabin-tastic and chock-full of everything good about camping and cabins from way-back-when. The barkcloth curtains above the bed, decorated with beavers and Indians and rivers and rocks, are just about as old as the inn itself. We found the two easy chairs at the Fort Bragg Soroptomist's Rummage Sale (along with a play-able guitar!). The mural is of a lake in upstate New York. Oh, and there are lots of owls - our favorite is the owl lamp above the table. Sweet!
NATURE has a king bed, kitchenette, fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $159 to $199 plus tax per night. NATURE adjoins NURTURE. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 2 - NURTURE
NURTURE is beauty school kitsch and comfort. The Asian barkcloth curtains above the bed are classic fifties. The barber chair came from our favorite salvage yard in Berkeley, as did the doctor's scale. This room has great lamps! Like the silver deco lamp, the glowing turquoise globe, the fifties aqua plastic, and the glowing Genesee beer lamp in the closet. The mural is a photograph of an old Midwestern hair salon. Feel free to play with the clothes in the costume chest. And make sure you try our old highway motel standard, Magic Fingers for a few minutes of old-school jiggly relaxation.
NURTURE has a queen bed, elec fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $129 to $149 plus tax per night. NURTURE adjoins NATURE. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 3 - HERE
HERE is an homage to the North Coast. The two murals are classic Mendocino bluff views. The wine-barrel coffee table is a nod to the best grape-growing in the world all around us. Of course, we had to include lots of nautical kitsch - we still have working wharfs in the area - and fishing art (no, that's not an oxymoron). We recovered the chairs in vintage fabric featuring quails, one of our many meadow inhabitants. And, do enjoy the tall tales found in the local books we've left on the coffee table!
HERE has a king bed, kitchenette, fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $159 to $199 plus tax per night. HERE adjoins THERE. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 4 - THERE
THERE is world travel circa 1960. It all started with the four posters on the walls from Contra Costa Travel - pretty awesome, but a little worse for wear since we found them in the bottom of closets when we cleaned out one of our childhood homes. This room has the BEST lamps, especially the glowing globe and the three-globed pole lamp. We also love the pull-down school map, the salvaged trunk and suitcase tables, and the nifty old geography games and puzzles, and the record player and language albums. And, the Viewmaster in this room has the most extensive selection of exotic travel slides. Have fun!
THERE has a queen bed, elec fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $129 to $149 plus tax per night. THERE adjoins HERE. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 5 - READ
READ is library chic (we may have invented this style, come to think of it). An eclectic selection of books, desk, plenty of comfy seating, fireplace, glasses (for reading, natch), and a cup of tea - what more could you want? Even the furniture has literary cred in this cabin! The desk chair and settee came from Stacy's Books in San Francisco when they went out of business (boo!), and the curtains are school library cast-offs. Our favorite part of this cabin is the library postcard museum& we have quite a few already, and we're hoping for more as time goes by. Finally, the mural was made from a photograph of an unknown university's library.
READ has a king bed, kitchenette, fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $159 to $199 plus tax per night. READ adjoins WRITE. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 6 - WRITE
WRITE loves writers and writing! There's an entire chalkboard wall to fill in. A piano-turned-desk with a good old typewriter and a stack of newsprint. Our old family dictionary. For inspiration and enjoyment, we've filled the walls with great writing, including one page each from a set of great American short stories, a few classic Chinese and Persian poems, and a bit of Grimm's fairy tales. The chairs in the cabin may not look like much, but they've got great roots & we snagged them when (sadly) Stacy's Books in San Francisco went out of business.
WRITE has a king bed, elec fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $129 to $149 plus tax per night. WRITE adjoins READ. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 7 - PLAY
PLAY is all about fun, with a selection of new and old games (we LOVES games), vintage bingo art, and really mod fabrics that graced someone's rec room a long time ago and now grace our own little rec room here. And then there's the word search wallpaper and chalkboard wall to record your finds. We found the wallpaper in France, of all places, and you'll find some French words along with English words (and, ahem, a couple dirty words too). The handmade, one-of-a-kind game table is neat. The cabin also features two of our beloved sixties spaghetti lucite globe lamps. Have fun!
PLAY has a queen bed, bathroom, deck, and rents for $109 to $139 plus tax per night.
Cabin 8 - MAKE
We once read 'It used to be that people would get in touch with their inner child. Now, people seem to be getting in touch with their inner-grandma.' MAKE is for those people! Knitting, origami, stamps, crayons, craft kits, and OF COURSE, the paint-by-number wall. Feel free to pick up a brush and paint a spot or two, or pull up to the craft desk and use our supplies to create your own masterpiece. MAKE also features two of our fantastic sixties spaghetti lucite globe lamps - in orange, which cast the sweetest glow at night.
MAKE has a queen bed, bathroom, deck, and rents for $109 to $139 plus tax per night.
Cabin 9 - William & Mildred Suite
Our largest cabin, the Suite is a romantic getaway for two or perfect for groups that have rented several cabins and need a gathering space. It features a large living/dining room with a sofa that converts into a comfortable bed, a cool camel bar, dining table for up to six people, kitchenette, a bedroom with king posturpedic bed, two bathrooms (one with a fantastic bubbly fancy tub). The suite is an homage to the romance of William and Mildred during WWII, with a little 40s glam and touching - real - love letters the pair sent to each other from afar.
The Suite has a king posturpedic bed, convertible sofa bed, kitchenette, two elec fireplaces, two bathrooms, a jacuzzi tub, private deck, and rents for $249 to $299 plus tax per night.
Cabin 11 - CURIOUS
CURIOUS features all sorts of ways to indulge your curiosity about the world around us. We've put a couple old telescopes and guides to the night sky, fantastic-old-but-working binoculars, field guides to local flora and fauna, science kits, and Audubon prints and a bird whistle. We've filled our forties-era maple cabinet with smarty-pants games and an eclectic mix of books and activities. Finally, there's also a sweet mural of the moon and stars. Magical!
CURIOUS has a king bed, kitchenette, fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $159 to $199 plus tax per night. CURIOUS adjoins CURIOUS-ER. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
Cabin 12 - CURIOUS-ER
CURIOUS-ER was the first room we redecorated and it's a little peek into our personal style. It features, well, VERY CURIOUS items and activities. An original 8-ball. Kreskin's ESP. Dogs that wear suits. Old-timey circus art (including the mural of the undercarriage of an old carousel). A Ouija board. Chalk dogs. A little bit of the mysterious Masons. And - the best of all - our perfect condition 1950's Viverator, which we found in a salvage yard! Sit back, relax, and crank the dial. You may never leave!
CURIOUS-ER has a queen and twin beds, elec fireplace, bathroom, deck, and rents for $129 to $149 plus tax per night. CURIOUS-ER adjoins CURIOUS. The two cabins can be rented together or separately.
