This cute little cabin is nestled in the middle of a redwood forest. It has large windows which make you feel you are in the middle of woods. It is very secluded, and seems in the middle of nowhere, but it is just 6 or 7 minutes away from US 101. Downtown McKinleyville is just as close. A hidden gem!

I loved everything about this place! Very quiet. Beautiful Redwoods in front of the huge deck. Very comfortable bed. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need. The BBQ grill was definitely a plus! I will definitely be making many trips back to Dear Ol' Dads! I found my 2nd home vacation spot! Thank you to the owner Bob for the story behind Dear Ol' Dad's. You sir did an amazing job on the cabin & I look forward to many trips back to Dear Ol' Dad's!

Good location. Our only comment is to make a note on the directions that the house is past the first driveway rather than turning on it.

Surely more than a little cabin. Very comfortable, not camping. Secluded yet close to town. Great deck w/ BBQ. Just the getaway we needed.

If you’re looking for peace and quiet this is the place. Beautiful views, nice bed, great kitchen, it all seemed so new. The deck was certainly the place to be early morning and evening. The gas grill was real handy. We’d certainly stay there again.

It was very quiet and restful. The cabin is small, but clean and modern. It's three miles from services, but that was ok with us.
