The Brambles inhabits a small, forested valley situated between Indian Creek County Park and an old wood mill that hearkens back to the area’s lumber boom of the 1940s and ’50s. Stretching back away from the road, the land has remained largely undeveloped, adding to the seclusion and convenient location of the property.
Nestled deep in a towering redwood grove, the Front Door and the Back Porch both sleep two guests and have stunning views of the Burly Grove and its most curious feature, the Pachyderm Tree. If you venture further into The Brambles, past the cabins to a clutch of redwoods, you’ll see a particularly unusual burl on the side of one of the older trees. This burl bears an uncanny resemblance to an elephant’s head, complete with large ears and trailing trunk. Up Mill Ridge and overlooking the redwood forest, the Faller’s Cabin sleeps two guests and the Logger’s Cabin sleeps four.
The Brambles was once a spiritual retreat and camp area back in the day. The Camp Pavilion with its semicircular design is situated in a clearing in the woods and is a perfect place for a wedding or celebration. It can also be utilized for workshops, business retreats and family reunions. The property is owned and run by the team from The Madrones.
