Book your stay now to experience it for yourself! See why this has been the most popular Airbnb listing for years.
We live on 10 beautiful acres of sun, oak forest, redwood groves and gardens with 2 goats, a parrot, 2 cats, a small dog, 9 chickens and from 200 - 500 hummingbirds - depending on the time of year.
I have been hosting on Airbnb since July 2009, and really love what this company has made possible. I have met so many wonderful people from around the world that I would never have met if I hadn't had this opportunity with Airbnb! Some of our guests (especially the ones from Europe) have never seen a hummingbird before and here they get to see them up close - just a few feet from them as the birds "hum" around the feeders.
We welcome you to come experience the peace and tranquility that our wonderful land has to offer.

"Kitty is an excellent super host and was very kind/helpful during our stay. The Mushroom Dome is amazing and extremely cozy! It comes with lots of nice little touches. I would definitely stay here again! 10/10"
"A beautiful and unique escape in the middle of the redwoods. Thoughtful touches and a fun place to stay. The mushroom dome is an extremely simple and quant place to stay away from everyday hustle. My children loved the on site trail, animals, and hummingbirds."
"The mushroom dome exceeded my expectations- and they were set pretty high. Just the acoustics in the mushroom dome warrant a visit to Kitty's place. Kitty and Michael were both friendly and welcoming. Kitty's views were wholesome and refreshing. I wish I had spent more time talking to her. If you have time, check out the book she has on the shelf above the folded table.
This stay was definitely more of an experience, rather than a place to lay our heads at night. Considering the price, what you receive is a steal."
"We came all the way from Toronto, Canada. We wanted to have a getaway me, Jen & our little 5 month old baby Kawayan. It was THE greatest experience we've ever had together as a new family. Personally, we loved the privacy & being surrounded by nature.
This was an inspiration as well a chance to cook up some really great meals in this cozy mushroom dome! FYI, there were NO bad odors in the space. everything was clean and comfortable. Thanks Kitty & Mich we'll come back again next year."
"We had a wonderful time staying at the Mushroom Cabin!!!! We enjoyed the magical drive to Kitty's and Michael's place and once we were there we relaxed. iT is such a great green quiet sunny and amazing place to be at and was exactly what we were looking for.
Kitty and Michael were very welcoming and helpful.We had wonderful goat milk while we were there and also enjoyed their hummingbirds, parrot,dog and goats!!!! The cabin was so cozy and everything was in there that you needed!!! We had great conversations and felt like visiting friends.Great energy!!!"
"The mushroom dome, and our first airbnb experience exceeded my every hope and expectation. Although we did not get to meet our hosts I could tell from every nook and cranny that they have put so much love, attention and care into creating a wonderful place to have a holiday.
The bed was warm and comfy, the wifi was faster than I have ever seen, the trees were as tall as could be and the location was perfect.
I can't say enough good things. Don't hesitate, book it now."
"Kitty and Michael raise the bar for what Superhosts can be. They gave us a warm welcome to the cabin and the surrounding property. The Mushroom Dome itself is very comfortable and very accommodating; we spent our nights cooking meals, playing board games, watching Netflix, and catching some Z’s on the super comfy casper mattress.
There’s all amenities you could need and the interior is very thoughtfully organized. Apart from the Mushroom Dome itself, hummingbirds, chickens, goats, cats and a dog make the surroundings even more charming are sure to delight any animal lovers. This listing is really an Airbnb and an Experience all rolled into one. Highly recommended!"
"We arrived in the evening and the dome cabin was beautifully lit with string lights and tucked away in a secluded forested area. Our 7-year-old son explained immediately, "This is magical!" The cabin was perfect and Kitty gave us a detailed description of the space and surroundings.
The deck is great because we were able to put our son to sleep and have plenty of space for some adult time. This was also where we sat and drank our coffee and listened to the birds in the morning. Our son was set on seeing the goats milked and Kitty was gracious enough to allow us to accompany her to watch. Hope to return and stay in the other cabin on the property sometime!"
