Outside the house is a giant slice of a redwood tree thought to be largest to be cut down in Mendocino County. When it was cut, in 1943, the redwood was 1,800 years old and more than 300 feet tall. There is an interesting timeline spanning the tree slice to put history in perspective.
The Guest House is almost right next door to the world-famous Skunk Train, where you can take a trip back through time as you journey through ancient redwood forests on one of their vintage trains.
