California is filled with the unique, zany and crazy attractions that tourists and residents travel miles to see. One of them can be found along the northern California coast in redwood country at a place called Redcrest, home to the Eternal Tree House. Over 2,500 years old, you can step down into the base of this tree which has been carved into and actual room with a glass window that filters sun.
Open as a tourist attraction among the giant redwood forests that comprise the tallest trees in the world, the Eternal Tree House is located next gift shop and restaurant that came into being after the house was built as a 20-foot room carved in 1910 by Harry McLeod, an expert wood splitter. It it located along Interstate 101 in Humboldt County south of Eureka and Fortuna. The beach isn’t far away but no accessible roads take your directly west from Redcrest to the ocean. You can, however, access the beaches of Humboldt County by traveling north approx. 30 - 45 minutes. There aren’t many hotels around Redcrest either, but it makes for a great road stop worth checking out.
