Treetop Cabin is an elegant, well appointed cabin located in Mount Hermon, about 10 minutes from Santa Cruz. The setting is very serene and private, with nice sun during the day and plenty of beautiful trees all around. The wrap-around decks are equipped with dining tables, plenty of seating, gas barbeque, and outdoor kitchen. Large windows offer mountain views across the treetops, as well as an eye on the active and varied bird community who visit the feeders.
The main house offers an open living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a loft. The furnishings are clean, comfortable and new, including a big screen tv. The master bedroom has a king bed and the guest bedroom has two twins, which can be made into a king on request.

Off the back deck are two cabanas which are furnished as sleeping rooms. The upper cabana has a king bed and the lower has two twins. Each cabana is fully furnished, including television, bedside tables with lamps, and carpet. Intercom communication is available between cabanas and the main house. A third cabana houses the large hot tub. Adjacent to the hot tub is an outdoor shower.

Our stay at Treetop Cabin

Our home for the month was a 2 story with an A-frame upper level, built of pine and glass high in the treetops. The interior was open plan with mirrored walls. There were verandas on 3 sides and an outside hot tub with a cabana built around it, with a skylight in the roof so you could watch the stars. In the oak tree outside the bedroom and lounge, the owners had hung bird feeders for the seed-eating birds such as woodpeckers, blue jays, pigeons, finches and others. There was a nectar feeder for the hummingbirds. There were constant visitors to this free feeding station and I never tired of watching them. Squirrels were frequent visitors also. Their antics around the hanging feed containers were amusing to watch. There was a hierarchy; big birds first – the Acorn Woodpeckers as a family group peck holes in the branches to store the seed. Other birds and the squirrels steal it when they are away. The small birds arrive and snatch seed in between looking nervously all around them.
