We were traveling up the coast and I wanted to stay in the middle of the redwoods but we had flown out to California so we didn't have a tent. The Ocean Grove Lodge has eight or ten cabins sitting in a grove of redwoods. Right outside the door to our cabin were giant trees soaring to the sky. It is a beautiful setting. They have worked to keep the trees and not just have a giant parking lot. In fact, it is one way in and then you have to wind your way back out through even more redwoods. Our cabin which I belive was #4 was clean, the furniture was a bit dated but fine. We enjoyed sitting outside and reading under the giant trees. The walls were thin. We could clearly hear the TV from the adjoining cabin and I don't think it was turned up that loud. Fortunately they turned it off around midnight. We tried to cover it up by running the heater but made our room super hot, so we did not get a good nights sleep. Several of the other "cabins" were old rundown looking trailers. At $90 a night it seemed overpriced. However, when I was checking prices that was about as good as I could find near the coast in Northern California. Our room was fine except for the thin wall but the trailers looked really bad. It did accomplish what we wanted, which was a place to stay in the middle of some redwoods. I'd stay again because of the beautiful environment outside of the room. However, if it wasn't in the middle of all the trees I would probably keep moving.
