Large families and work retreats, get ready for an adventure in the redwoods! Starlight Retreat is comprised of two charming homes about 100 yards apart - Starlight and Starbright. Each has a hot tub and delightfully unique decor.
Starlight Retreat is an authentic woods retreat experience. The main house was custom built by local woodworkers and distinctive features such as the sunken living room surrounded by window seats, window-clad loft bedroom and stunning forest views capture your attention. The main level features two bedrooms (walk through the first bedroom to step through a sliding barn-style door to the second bedroom), kitchen, dining area, breakfast nook, full bathroom and living room. Step out to the large deck for al fresco dining, the BBQ and superb bird watching. Upstairs, the master suite has a large flat screen TV, small patio and office with a permanently secured ladder to the loft sleeping space.
Meandering outside, you can follow the raised path to the hot tub which seats 2 to 3 guests and lounge area just down the hill or take the brick path to the recreation room. Here you'll find a pool table and exercise equipment, washer and dryer and another deck with views for miles.
Stroll down the driveway or take the path cut into the hill to Starbright. It's hard to believe this modern construction was once the original woodworking shop for the builders of Starlight. Now it's a three bedroom home with an open layout. The kitchen, dining and living rooms share a woodstove, high ceilings and more windows to engage the forest all around. One bedroom and one and half bathrooms (including the W/D) are on the same level as the living areas. Two bedrooms are just a few steps down and meet at a den at the very back of the house - facing the hot tub which seats 4 to 6 guests. The side deck with a BBQ is the perfect place to dine and tell stories.
Signs mark the hiking trails on this 50 acre property and lead you to a seasonal creek, mini open air amphitheater and countless adventures!

Driveway to Starlight Retreat:
There is a gate at the bottom of the driveway which you will need to open. We provide the combination and instructions for confirmed reservations. The driveway is a one-lane curvy hillside road - paved, but steep in spots. Special vehicles are not required, but low profile cars may find this challenging. We recommend parking these cars at Starbright and walking to Starlight.
There are multiple sets of stairs at this property. Between the two homes, you can walk along the driveway or along trails and rustic stairs (earth and wood). At Starlight, there are several stairs to the front deck and main entrance. There is a flight of stairs to the second story and a permanently anchored ladder to the loft. Three steps lead down to the living room. A deck and stairs lead to the hot tub down the hill. At Starbright, there are two steps up to the front deck and main house. Inside, there are three steps into two bedrooms. There are also steps from the side deck to lower levels of the yard, if you're exploring. The hot tub is on a deck platform with a couple steps. Once inside both houses, there are bedrooms that can be accessed without stairs.
The yard is not fenced.
One dog, 25 lbs or less, is allowed per reservation.
The primary areas of the property are kept clear of poison oak. We strive to keep it back from the trails and roads as well but recommend caution and Technu (or your favorite brand of anti-poison oak treatment) if you are exposed.
Proximity to Wineries:
Porter-Bass is the closest winery just .2 of a mile from the bottom of the driveway. They are open by appointment only.
