Shanti has thankfully been spared from the recent Sonoma County fires. This morning has clear blue skies and sunshine. You are welcome to escape the smoke, heat and flames here.
Shanti's Redwood Cottage is filled with peace, quiet and calm nestled in the redwoods of Occidental. Dog and pet friendly with a large private back yard. Soak away your aches and pains in the hot tub. Help us feed Cosmo the llama, our Blackbelly sheep, chickens and ducks. Lots of sun & stars here!


Location, location, location
Coleman Valley Road is known as the most beautiful road in Sonoma County. Shanti means peace or peaceful in ancient Sanskrit. Shanti is strategically located on Coleman Valley Road and only a short drive two-mile drive, bike ride or lovely walk from the cute little town of Occidental with its shops, video store and internet café, famous eateries and locally owned markets. The drive from Occidental to Shanti affords beautiful views of Mount Saint Helena and the surrounding Mayacamas Mountains to the east. But it is further west that attracts so many visitors. The remaining eight miles from Shanti to the ocean are a shockingly narrow, curvy and spectacularly panoramic drive unparalleled in Sonoma County. Forested landscapes of a varied ecosystem of deciduous Oaks, Redwoods and Douglas firs give way to sudden vistas of meadows and a fog-shrouded ocean that stretches into eternity. The drive to the coast only takes about 35 minutes, but you are guaranteed to stop and take pictures all along the way. This is the number one scenic attraction in the area, and it is just a left turn out of our driveway.
We can fit six people comfortably. There is one bedroom with a queen sized bed, one full sized futon couch in the living room that sleeps two smaller adults or children, and one queen sized bed in the camper.
We are unique in that we are super pet friendly, LGBT friendly and 420 friendly.

Guests are asked to be mindful of Shanti's land, its unique ecosystem and its gentle ways. Libby and Lucy (Elizabeth's Field Spaniels) love to have visitors of the canine or feline persuasion. Pets are very welcome here and welcome indoors as well. There is a sweet little backyard behind your vacation rental that is completely fenced for your dog. Elizabeth's hot button is littering. Please no littering whatsoever on the land (even cigarette butts are litter to us!). It is good karma to conserve spring water by not running the tap while washing dishes or tooth brushing, and also not taking long showers. Smoking cigarettes outside is OK. We are medical 420 friendly indoors or out. We thank you for being respectful of Shanti!

The Shanti is a wonderful place to get away! It's a very welcoming vibe when you first pull up. Elizabeth's garden is outstanding and you are able to harvest as you please. We made a nice tomato, cucumber, onion salad from her garden and had a yummy squash too! It was a lovely getaway and we look forward to booking The Shanti again.

Elizabeth's cottage was by far the most comfortable, clean, and well-appointed farm stay cottage that I've experienced. Everything about this place is magical from the wonderful garden to the friendly cats, beautiful setting, fresh eggs, birds, butterflies, etc. I highly recommend this place and Elizabeth in general to anyone coming to the area. It's just outside of town and you can be at some incredible restaurants in "downtown" Occidental within just a few minutes drive.

The farm feels secluded, and is quiet, peaceful, and magical ... but it's close to town and easy to get to. The hot tub under the redwoods, private yard, and cozy cottage were all perfect. Oh, and a llama! Highly recommend.

Shanti is in a lovely, serene setting amidst woods. Elizabeth was very friendly, prompt and engaging as a host. We had a great time at Shanti, kids loved pets on the property, a chance to harvest in the vegetable garden and spend time in the hammock and hot tub. Shanti is conveniently located within driving distance to Bodega bay.

Staying at Elizabeth's farm in Occidental was amazing! I visited with my girlfriend and our puppy. Elizabeth was very kind and welcoming to all of us. The little apartment is perfectly equip for light cooking, hanging out, relaxing, and sleeping. We cooked breakfast with duck eggs, kale and tomatoes all farm fresh (like we literally harvested everything moments before we cooked them)! Elizabeth let us hang out with her sheep and alpaca! We fed the chickens and ducks. I even got to help with some light farm work (really I just stood around and chatted with Elizabeth and her farm hand, Bean). The location is great for site seeing around the Russian River. You can take the road that Elizabeth's place is on straight to the ocean. Driving up the coast is a must, as is driving along the Russian River. We found a couple of good dog friendly beaches (Blind Beach, near Goat Rock - Elizabeth can give you more precise directions - and Monte Rio beach on the Russian River). Occidental has a couple good restaurants and Sebastopol has a ton and is in easy driving range. Overall, I highly recommend staying at Elizabeth's lovely farm!

Thank you for your outstanding review, fellow Elizabeth! It was a pleasure being your hostess at Shanti Cottage and Permaculture Farm. I am happy that you took advantage of all that this area has to offer: the gorgeous beaches, feeding my ducks/chickens and sheep/llama, the Russian River, Sebastopol and the fine restaurants. Please come back again!

Despite being on Coleman Valley Road, this is a very quiet retreat. Sitting in the hot tub under a giant Redwood was really wonderful.
