55Beautiful property! Our dogs were very happy.
55We enjoyed this space immensely and will definitely be back!!! The area is beautiful, the spot was exciting with many variables for the dogs to be interested in and plenty of space to run and play!! The perfect mix of sun and shade... but you might want to bring a few of your own lawn chairs for a place to sit. Honestly the dogs kept us on our feet so much we didn't miss not having chairs.
55We loved this spot! Lots of different areas to explore. My dog adored running through the grass and running up the hill after his ball. We will definitely be back!
55Thanks Jessica for letting us share the wonderful place you have. The information provided is very useful. I am retraining my dogs after they were attacked on a trail. There are other dogs in the neighbourhood you can hear, not too distracting. Perfect for us. We got off 101 as drove the side roads it’s an awesome drive. Thanks

Location

Sebastopol, California

Description

Come visit our little hillside clearing in the woods! You’ll have the run of about 1.5 acres of mixed terrain, including wild meadows, a seasonal creek bed, oaks, redwoods, blackberries, fruit trees, some native landscaping, and a long gravel driveway that runs the length of the property. ✨It’s magical✨ ⚠️But please read our Spot details carefully and be mindful of the downsides too: 🌲 We mow and cut back growth every week in the summer but this is a natural woodland more than a suburban yard. 🦊 Foxes, deer, and owls live here! They’re not active during the day when you visit but tick precautions are advised for pups and people alike. If you have any concerns (especially as we head in to the hot months), please reach out and I’ll be happy to answer your questions or give an up to date hazard report! We hope you come to enjoy this special place as much as we do 🐾

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

This is an enclosed wilderness space, with minimal landscaping other than fire prevention. We mow several times a season but there are wild plants (including burrs & foxtails in the summer), fungi, and nighttime animal visitors. There is a seasonal creek, as well as wood piles, wood chips, and blackberries. The creek runs along the south slope of the property and is very seasonal. In the late spring and summer this means it is mostly dry/muddy with marsh plants and blackberries growing. In rainy months it is fast moving, narrow, and exciting to jump over!
