Any missing items or damage caused by you or your guests as a result of your stay will be assessed and billed accordingly to your credit card.

We love having kids at Shelterwood and encourage families to let the little ones explore. We strive to maintain a natural California Redwood forest, which does also include natural hazards. Steep terrain, poison oak, rattle snakes, and yellow jackets are some of the hazards potentially found on property. Most guests have no interactions with any of these, but we do like to remind everyone that we are in a very natural setting. We expect parents to hold their children to a high standard of behavior and respect for other guests and the surroundings. Rough and unruly behavior, running, yelling, shouting, or disturbing private areas such as neighbors’ sites, tents, and decks is not allowed. We ask parents to watch their children and ensure they’re complying with our rules and policies.


Shelterwood is a dog-friendly property. It’s mandatory to let us know at the time of booking if dogs will be joining. We do not take responsibility for the actions of your dog(s). Please clean up after your dog(s). All dogs must remain on a leash. You are responsible for injuries or damage that your dog(s) may cause. Dogs are not allowed on any bedding or furniture. Any owners found not in compliance will be asked to remove the dog(s) from the property and/or charged a $300 cleaning fee. Other animals are not allowed.


We love a good campfire and are proud to offer pits and firewood as one of Shelterwood’s features, but safety is always the top priority for people as well as the land. Fires are only allowed on low-danger days and we require all guests to comply with safety rules. We are not responsible for any harm caused to you or other guests. To find out if fires are allowed during your reservation dates please reach out.
