    Oh, my. Gorgeous. I couldn’t see myself living there, but I sure would like to vacation there.

    I agree this cabin is beautiful and the atmosphere + views are breathtaking! Although I’m a no stairs/no loft type of gal, this is yet another tiny/small house design that I could totally see myself living and functioning in. Ahhh…my goodness, it looks so peaceful. I can just imagine the early morning cup of tea I would have there.

    This is WONDERFUL! So well designed, great use of space, cozy, loaded with character. I could TOTALLY live in something like this! Kudos to the builder! This is everything a true tiny house could be!

    I love it! Normally I wouldn’t like the stairs, but since this stairway looks sturdy and with the double handrails, I think I could deal with it. What a beautiful house and location, and I would love to live here.

    OMG, like, I want to live there immediately. I would love to sit by the fire watching a big ol’ snowstorm roll in. It’s just ultra cozy!!

      Not too many snowstorms in Mendocino County 🙂 …but I understand the sentiment. This is a lovely cabin, and the redwoods are the most “fairy tale” of all the forests.

    . That would be a deep sigh of contentment, if only it were mine.

    Love the small house, but let’s be real about the environment. Those are fir trees, NOT redwoods!

    I didn’t notice any insulation. But I do agree with others, lovely and cozy. I could definately live there, and find my inner peace.

    I’m ready to move in! Soooo cozy, warm and charming. A storybook delight. Makes me want to write a story using the setting…

    I’m a 8th grader doing a Capstone project on tiny houses, and I’d have to say this is one of the best designs I’ve come across so far. Where’s the bathroom on the floor plan? Trying to figure out how much it would cost now. Thinking somewhere around 30,000? mostly unfurnished?

    • BrownLuster

      Hi Max!
      Wow a Capstone in the 8th grade?!? I didn’t do my capstone until Grad School. LOL.

      So based on the size of the loft area in the pics, it doesn’t look like it’s enough room for the bathroom up there so I believe that the bathroom is opposite the living room/porch area but for whatever reason, the owner chose not to show it. Also, I’m not familiar with what materials cost in that CA area however, if you click the link above labeled “Airbnb/Karen” it will link you the the website where you can find more detailed info on the features and materials used on this cabin.

      So Max…glad to see you have an interest in the tiny/small home movement and I hope you do well on your capstone!! (^_^)

        Hi, as soon as I saw this tiny house I fell in love with it. I have a mountain top property in N. Carolina that is just screaming for such a tiny house! It seems you had a link or some knowledge as to the dimentions, material, floor plan, etc.. Any information you could provide would certainly be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance, Steve

        You’ll see a couple of pictures of the bathroom on the AirBNB site. To reach it, you have to go out onto the back deck.

        Now…I’d love to have that house–with a tad more insulation in winter, of course (not sure how cold it actually gets in Mendocino, but Oklahoma has its winter moments). My wife, who collects anything owl, would love the painting in the kitchen area.

    Dang, I sure wish I could live there. I don’t think I have ever seen a more cozy and warm home. Any chances the owners would adopt me?

    At $145 per night I doubt we’ll ever stay there. Still, it was lovely to see and I thank you for sharing it. God bless you and yours! Happy trails!

    Some people have allergies to dogs and cats. It’s a beautiful home. I would like to know whothe architect is?

    Had to laugh at the “no-pets in California” comment. When I moved here I couldn’t believe all the animals people took everywhere with them (especially in their laps while driving). California is the original home of “the lady who left everything to her cat” lol
    Anyhow, loved this house. Cheap for Mendocino too. And the loft? Yeah, THAT is a LOFT.

    I had written earlier (Sept. 2016) and viewed your suggested website. I fell in love with your tiny cabin and plan to build one on my mountain property in N.C.; hope to start this spring. By the square footage mentioned 225 ft2 I assumed the overall cabin size was 14′ x 16′ but not sure if this included the deck/bathroom. The 120 ft2 loft must be about 14′ x 8.5′? The walls look to be much taller than 7′, maybe 9′ or so? If you are willing to share who your builder is, I would love to obtain/purchase a floor plan and more details if possible?? Any detailed info that would assist with my build would be greatly appreciated! Thank you…

    Love this, beautiful and so comfortable looking. Love every inch, feet of this cabin. Would be beautiful up here in Lake Isabella, CA!!!

    This property is either not available or booked forever. I was unable to contact the host due to having to put in dates requested but no dates at all are available. Can’t email the host without dates. I’m not at all sure this is a real place to stay although I would’ve loved a week or 10 days or so, but there is NO availability at all

  • Suzanne

    No available dates for…ever? Is this place even available?
