Merrybrook was just what we were looking for. Rustic charm and vintage furniture. The cabins are tucked away in the trees. Our cabin was next to the creek. The cabin was spacious with a tiny fridge, stove and microwave. It is walking distance from the main street and grocery store and far away enough to not be bothered by noise.... More

Such a cute little piece if history. Nicely situated in the tall trees, close to hiking areas! I think some people rent some of the rooms there long term. Didn't want to let the kids run around to much unsupervised. It was peaceful & quite.

Very nice couple runs this place, so I'm hesitant to write a review, but.....the munginess and lack of care prodded me to write. I'm hoping they'll get motivated to improve things. Yes, you can have people book easily because of limited options in the area, but you might want more return visitors? It feels as if the absolute minimum is... More

Merry rook is a cluster of cabins and a handful of motel rooms scattered about a redwood-studded lot next to a creek, quite pretty location, even though you're in town. It's a slow 8 mile drive up a twisting road from Big Basin Redwoods State Park. We had a 1 BR cabin, which had a could of twins in the... More

My wife and I stayed two nights in one of the cabins, in October 2013. We paid $160 per night, so expected reasonably good quality. The cabin we had was quite spacious, and could easily accommodate four people (we were just two). There was a half size fridge and a microwave, and a very old and smallish electric oven/range (which... More

We booked a bunch of rooms for guests of our wedding party and we had a chance to check out several of the rooms. All were very clean; floors, tub, etc. The owners are sweet and accommodating. The cabins/rooms are nestled amongst the Redwoods and are a hop-skip to the creek. I love that the cabins/rooms are appropriate for the... More

A beautiful setting in the forest makes this a good place to stay. Be advised that the property is older, and our cabin a bit worn. It reminded me of the cabins at a church camp. there is no daily room service but that was OK for our short stay. The staff was very pleasant and willing to accommodate our... More

For those of you who would like to have a quiet trip in the woods, this is it. We were lucky to get cabin 3, which was the cabin with the best creek view. Love the deck and the BBQ grill outside. The kitchen has an electric stove, full size frige and full size sink, but no microwave. Used frying... More

Checked in on Sunday night and from the first moment I knew I was home for the week. Friendly staff always greeting you with a smile. Clean cabins with everything you need for your stay. Private and quiet location. Had a creek right off the deck with the sound of running water all night. If you're looking for some fancy... More

We stayed two nights at the Merry Brook lodge this past weekend. I was a little anxious about staying after reading all of the reviews. I have to say I was quite impressed. The owners were very nice. The room was very clean. We stayed in the hotel style room with one queen bed. The room was HUGE. It was... More
