Pumpkin Cottage is nestled in the woods at Otter Space. It's barn-shaped with a queen bed, a wood stove, a kitchen sink, a pull-out futon & an upstairs loft with a bed. You can hear the Klamath River at night, rolling along under the starry skies on the other side of the meadow. The bath house is 30 yards away, with 2 showers & toilets. Park in front of the cottage. We're off the grid. No wireless. Leave virtual time at home and spend some real time with those you love!

Do not use your GPS. It does not work well around here!

From Southern CA, Los Angeles: North on the 405 to I-5.

- After about 5 hours, take #580 West toward San Francisco/ through Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond & San Rafael, where you will hit the US#101. Continue North to Ukiah/Willits/Eureka/Arcata/Orick

From SFO area:

- Oakland Airport – take Hegenberger Rd North to 880North to 80/580North, cross the Richmond/San Rafael bridge ($5), and you will join US#101 North.

- San Francisco Airport – take US#101 North to Ukiah/Willits/Eureka/Arcata/Orick

(Fill up with gas in Arcata before you make the rest of the trip to Otter Space.)

Just north of Orick, make a right turn onto Bald Hill Road taking you toward the “Lady Bird Johnson” grove of redwoods. As soon as you turn onto Bald Hill Road, check your odometer. You will be 23 miles from Otter Space. Bald Hill Road will take you eastward up the mountain.

The road goes mostly uphill for the next 9 to 10 miles. There are a couple of scenic view sites on the right, where you might care to stop and check out the view. Sometimes we see Elk grazing in one of the highland meadows on the right. At about 9.5 miles, you will come to a Fire Station on your left. Veer uphill to your left onto Johnson Road. Check your odometer again. You have 13 miles to go from this point. Slow down, watch for potholes in the dirt road. Go over the cattle guard bars in the road. Stay to your left when in doubt. At 5.5 & 6 miles in, you will pass new roads on the left made by the lumber company doing some clear cuts. Make sure you are on the main road, which veers to the right in these two locations.

When you get to 10 miles in on Johnson Road, there is a 90 degree turn in the road down to your left. This is called Bald Eagle Bluff by some. You may want to stop and get out and walk up onto the raised area and look down onto the mighty Klamath streched out below you.

As you proceed downhill, around many curves, and approach the 13 mile mark, you will be almost all the way down to the river. Look for a red gate and fence on your right, set back as the road curves to the left. This is the Otter Space entrance. We are at 13065 Johnson Road. There is no number posted. Come on in. Park to the right of the Barn. If Joe and Wendy are not there to meet you. Walk down to the meadow and you will see their yurt across the meadow toward the river. Walk on over and introduce yourself. Their kids, Josie, Bean and Scout will probably run out to greet you! They will be there.

Regular cel phones will not work on Johnson Road. You can call Joe & Wendy Moore at ( if there is an emergency. See you there! Good Luck!

If you want to check out Otter Space on Earth, look for CA route 169,and go all the way to the end of the road. It ends in Johnson's Bar, CA which is on the other side of the Klamath River directly across from Otter Space. You can see the round yurt and the orchard!

Interaction with guests

I live in Topanga, CA, so I am at Otter Space at different time, but my co-hosts Joe Moore and his wife Wendy and their 3 kids actually live on the property. They are very friendly, down-home and helpful. You'll like 'em all! A very special family.

Other things to note

This is a remote site with very limited phone and wireless service. It's more of a destination than a stopping off place. It's quite wild and beautiful and the closest store is an hour away, ... the closest town is Arcata, CA and that's about an hour and a half drive. We are off the grid and must use solar or generator power to have electricity. This is an experience for most people. The 13 miles of the drive after you leave Highway 101, is on a small two lane paved road through woods and high meadows, (Bald Hills Road), and then onto a 13 mile dirt road (Johnson Road) with very few houses as it's mostly lumber company logging roads. Be prepared with food and flashlights.

Vendégek hozzáférése

Please avail yourselves of the trails, the orchard and full length of the Klamath River "beach". There's a couple of neighbors just downstream, and the Yurok village known as "Johnson's" on the map, but as Wautek to the tribe. We have a 50 tree orchard full of apple, pears, peaches, cherries, plums, grapes, and even a persimmon tree. All organic. Just depends what's ripe when you come. We like to share.

Otter place was magical. The cottage was spacious, clean and well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing time off the grid, in the heart of the woods. We were also able to see deer, chickens and even wild horses. I highly recommend you spend a long weekend at this spot. It will relax you and make you feel brand new. I can't wait to be back.

We had an amazing stay at the Otter Space. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Definitely recommend spending at least two nights up there. We loved the serenity of the place and spent an amazing day reading and lounging by the Klamath river. We hope we'll have a chance to come up to the Otter Space again in the future.

This place is very special and completely unique! It takes some getting to though and is definitely a destination to be savoured rather than a quick stop off point on a road trip. Getting down the track into the forest took us nearly an hour in our little 2 wheel drive car. However, when we arrived our welcome was wonderful from the lovely family who live here, off grid, permanently. Our children played constantly with their 3 and had to be dragged away when we left in the morning! The river is just a short walk from the cottage and is indeed 'mighty'. We swam and jumped in and felt like we were the only people for miles around. The cottage is comfy and completely quiet at night. There are some gorgeous brass pans available for cooking with and natural wood plates and bowls. Showers and toilets were clean. The clearing in the forest where the properties lie felt totally secluded, quite shady as you'd expect and very wild. It was an exciting and memorable experience for us city dwellers!

Otter Space is a special place, very remote and peaceful. The river is majestic, and we saw a bear, which was quite a treat!! Joe and Wendy were very hospitable, and their homemade pear and peach butters were the perfect gifts to take to our next hosts

The land is beautiful! It is a bit remote and rustic, but has very comfortable accommodations! We stayed in the Pumpkin Cottage. It was nicely setup and decorated, with a lot of charm. The Bathrooms/showers were also more then I expected for being remote and 'off the grid'

My web site is And we have a place in Humboldt county, CA called "Otter Space" that is beautifully off the grid right on the Klamath River if you'd like to come stay with us.
