A one-of-a-kind stay in Northeast LA - your own amazing “cabin in the woods”! Memorable, lovable, private & surrounded by almost a 1/2-acre and trees, trees, trees! You’ll discover irresistible charm – vaulted ceilings, skylights, built-ins and radiant floor-heat in the bedroom. The large bath features a clawfoot tub and full laundry – even an outdoor shower! Seclusion, but close to everything – this unique home is a rare treat! Good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
This is a wonderful and very unique space in the middle of the Frogtown neighborhood (Elysian Valley) of Los Angeles. It's been featured in photo and video shoots (French Elle, In Style, People, Men's Health Magazine with Joseph Gordon Levitt, etc.) The cozy and rustic home has been around for over a century and has been updated with central AC and heat, radiant floor heating in the sunken master bedroom, a great clawfoot tub for soaking - even an outdoor shower for a brisk evening rinse! There's also a shower indoors, of course. (Keep in mind California is in the midst of a severe drought, so please be mindful of water use.) People are always struck by the great energy tucked behind the unassuming privacy fence, a wonderful surprise hidden in the middle of this up and coming neighborhood.
You'll have access to the entire nearly half-acre property inside and out - lots of large, shady trees (and squirrels) to enjoy. There's a large paved area that would be great for outdoor yoga, or catching rays. The driveway gate secures you (and your vehicles should you prefer to park on the property as opposed to right out front on the street), and is a little heavy to open. We'll describe the "best practices" for opening and locking up in a short video. Owner's closet will likely be locked. There is a detached storage shed on the property that will be locked as well.
To make your stay comfortable, we're happy to answer any questions about the property, the area and all the fun things to do nearby (there are many exciting new restaurants, stores and local adventures), but we respect your privacy and won't intrude on your enjoyment.
This is a fairly rustic, but extremely welcoming and cozy home and property, so there is a fair amount of uneven terrain outside. You'll need to watch your step! Please wear comfortable shoes, especially if we're getting some much needed rain - You're likely to walk through some unpaved areas on your way onto the property. The fireplace in the bedroom is for decorative purposes only. Thank you for your cooperation.
- Please, no smoking indoors, and if you choose to smoke outside (be careful California continues to endure a severe drought), be sure to clean up all butts.
- Due to uneven terrain outdoors, anyone with balance issues needs to be extra careful.
- We love animals, but no pets allowed.
- Air mattresses available for children or extra guests. Additional fee may apply. Message us to discuss and we'll work it out.
- Please message us before you book if you have any questions about this unique property. We look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy your stay!
We are an outgoing, creative couple. We met playing husband/wife on a national TV commercial shoot years ago and life imitated art when we later married for reals! We are animal lovers, and are passionate about sustainability and the environment. We love talking shop about real estate, movies/TV (big GOT fans!), yoga and healthy eating. We love our home and hope you do too!
