“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My husband and two children stayed here in June and were very happy with our choice. We stayed in cabin #6 and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was small but functional with utensils and dishes supplied. The fireplace was an added bonus we used a lot more than we anticipated as the nights were still cool in June. The cottages are all in the redwoods, so the temperature does stay comfortable during the day also. The breakfast in the lobby was good with pastries, muffins, yogurt, juice and coffee, though some fruit would have been nice. The staff was friendly and did help with any problems or questions we had. On the last day we were there the housekeeper just knocked once and immediately used her key to come into our cottage before we had a chance to answer the door. She said she didn't see our car and thought we were gone. We hadn't checked out yet and it wasn't check out time yet anyway, so I think she really should have knocked and actually waited instead of immediately opening the door with her key. The garbage truck early in the morning is annoying, but that isn't anything the owners could control. I would recommend a cabin away from the road like 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9.

Room Tip: Cabins away from the road would be quieter.

My stay was just as I expected and more. I had hoped for a lovely setting, and it truly was. I was impressed at how many trees were located within the property. Although Miranda Gardens is not located within a State or National Redwood Forest, you wouldn't know it. The area is quiet, peaceful, and feels likes it's been the same way for ages.

We enjoyed a little hike down behind the property in the morning before breakfast. It was so quiet and lovely to see the sunrise through the giant trees. Breakfast had a nice selection. I would describe it as an ample continental breakfast.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. The cabin (two rooms connected by a single bath) was clean and cute. It could use some updating, but it was right for the feel of the place and the price. We enjoyed the front porch on our cabin and loved that we could park right in front of it. There was only one problem: a very noisy garbage truck came to collect the garbage the morning we were there (Tuesday). But, that can't be helped, and that's not the resort's fault.

The location was great on the Avenue of the Giants and just moments away from Humboldt State Park. I would gladly stay here again. It would be great for families, couples, and anyone seeking a quiet respite. With a great restaurant and coffee stand across the street, as well as a small market and gas station on the same side...you'll have everything you need for awhile. Make this your stay in the Redwoods!!

Room Tip: Choose a cabin away from the dumpsters, if you'll be there on the morning of garbage collection...

We loved this place. The cabins are really good as cabins go, with nice bathrooms and kitchen. This is not supposed to be a refined luxury resort. That said, it's a very nice place to stay for nature-loving couples and families. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the ones away from the road are quiet. We cooked most of our own meals, which you'll need to do because there's not much to eat within a 45-minute drive, except for the nice Miranda Cafe right across the street.

The owners are as nice as could be, and the grounds and the rooms are kept very clean. It's not a cheap place, but it's the best option on the Avenue of the Giants. We'll be back.

Miranda Gardens Resort is beautiful - nestled among redwoods on The Ave. of The Giants. Our cottage couldn't have been cleaner and was exactly what we had hoped it would be. Would love to go back some time, it was convenient and everyone working in the office was so nice. Highly recommend. There was also a very good cafe right across the street that we ate at several times and a small grocery next door.

Stay right in a grove of redwood trees - how special is that! It is right on the Avenue of the Giants road and the spacious grounds are lovely. It has everything you need or probably want; a swimming pool, volleyball nets, grocery store, gas station, and in the evening it's fun to sit around a big camp fire and meet other guests.

We've been coming back here for 40 years. It was very rustic, but the cabins have been upgraded and are exceptionally nice now. They all have a deck or patio, and our bed was comfortable. Some have kitchens, but there is also a very good restaurant right across the street. A good value, and the people managing this property do everything right.

We traveled all the way from Florida to experience the Redwoods and this place did not disappoint as the cabins were above and beyond clean and the grounds were well kept. The service was friendly and informative; from making our reservations to the service while on property. They are located at the southern end of the Avenue of the Giants which made it very easy to explore during the day and come back at night to our cozy cabin. The only down fall is that the beds need new mattresses but that should not stop anyone from staying here. The entire family will cherish our time in the Redwoods.

This is a lovely little place in the heart of the redwoods. Sweet place, beautifully maintained, and with just enough amenties that you don't have to
head all the way into Garberville if you run out of milk. Fun place for kids and a great little diner with great salads and pizza right across the road.
