Property Description

A small, rustic, handbuilt cabin deep in the Northern California woods. Part of a remote, off-grid "village," including a few other cabins, chickens, dogs, frogs, cats, permaculture gardens and all kinds of cool, sustainable, DIY infrastructure.

Welcome to sustainable living! We have made our off grid, wilderness, mountainous, agroforestry and permaculture project available to the VRBO guests to experience.

We are glad you made it and hope that you enjoy your stay here on the mountain. You are welcome to wander anywhere, hang out in gardens, visit the swimming hole, visit with animals, etc. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. Here's some info about how to operate things while you're here:

We want you to have a satisfying experience and think the key to that is realistic expectations. Please remember, this is Not a resort-- we (me, other members, woofers, interns, etc) live here, and its a functioning, real-life farm.

-- Think farm. As such, we might track muddy footprints into the bathhouse if its raining (this is rain forest) and there's almost always a project going on, so there could be a leaf pile outside your cabin, other possibilities, too.
-- Accessibility: we're 5 miles deep into the national forest. This makes some people nervous. The gravel forest roads are fine, but it's a gravel road with some potholes.

-- Yes, there are bears and mountain lions in this forest, plus lots of other creatures. They're really not a worry but some people worry about that kind of thing. Just a heads up.

No key needed, just show up and make yourself at home. There are no locks on doors. You'll see a white Welcome board near the base of the TreeHouse, it has a topo map with key to find your space. There is usually someone around to show you the ropes, but if not you can use the house manual in your cabin to figure out the basics.

Dogs will greet you! Our 3 enthusiastic and friendly dogs are likely to greet your vehicle with lots of barking; They can sound scary, but they really want lov'ins. You can bring your pooch, but please keep on leash or in hand when you arrive because doggie-spats have happened before. Nothing serious, but people can be sensitive about this -- and please let us know if your dog may be (or unkown?) a chicken, cat, or goat killer. It's happened, sadly.

Phone service: we don't have very much, so if you need to get in touch last minute, texting is your best bet (though still not guaranteed to reach us!). Voicemail is hit or miss. Verizon and US Cellular may get one or two bars of connection, all other carriers get zero.

If you can't make it before dark, plan on bringing a flashlight so you can find your way to your cabin. Having your own lights in the primitive cabins is a good idea.

Directions: Here is a backup copy of the directions that you will need to follow in order to find us out in the woods. Please DO NOT count on phone service, maps, map apps, GPS, etc, for our remote location - we don't even have a street address to input. This'll give you an idea of how close we are to things -- Print and use the directions carefully and you'll make it fine.

Directions to Maitreya Mountain Village

DO NOT USE GPS!!!!

You will be lost for days, wandering aimlessly through the National Forest with your little techno-rectangle in hand, probably end up be eaten by bears, with wailing and gnashing of teeth, and horrible stuff like that. DON'T do it.

The bridge is narrow (83.5 inches) and has ramps on both sides - if you have an unusually wide or long vehicle or otherwise feel uncomfortable with the bridge, please let us know and possibly someone is available for a shuttle. Otherwise, just hike up to cabin areas and ask if you're unsure.

  • If you have any kind of truck or SUV, you can drive through the creek during most of the year.

Let me know if you have any questions and we will see you soon!
