Blue Cottage is nestled in the woods at Otter Space. It's barn-shaped with twin beds, a wood stove, a kitchen sink and an upstairs loft with a double bed. You can hear the Klamath River at night, rolling along under the starry skies on the other side of the meadow. There's a bath house about 30 yards away, with 2 showers and toilets. Parking is available 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!


DIRECTIONS TO OTTER SPACE - Do not rely on your GPS. It doesn't 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 about 13.5 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!


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.


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.


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. They currently live in the main house, and we're building a log cabin for them and their 3 children down by the river.

Cosy little cottage in the woods. Great if you want to get away for a few days. It's off the grid and far from population. Host was super helpful, attentive and knew the area very well. Would definitely stay for more than 3 days if I come back.

It's not for everyone but if you dont mind being completely off the grid in an incredibly pristine place on a beautiful river with wild blackberries growing everywhere then you should experience this. My wife and kids loved it too. Peter is an awesome guy and there is a wonderful family who lives on the property that we will never forget. Thanks for the memories Peter!

We really enjoyed our "off the grid" experience in such a beautiful setting. We were really well looked after by the family that lives there who gave us lots of fresh fruit and veg. We also did some fishing in the river and walking around the property. In terms of how "off the grid" it is, there is no cell service or wifi. There is a generator so we had electricity for a couple of hours in the evening. The shared bathroom was nice, clean and functional... There was a propane stove in the cottage, along with some pots and pans so cooking is definitely an option although we did not do any. Thanks for a memorable experience!

This was an amazing relaxing secluded cabin. I loved everything about the cabin itself from The loft bed and musical instruments to the wooden plates and cozy kitchen. The river access was amazing and the host and family on site were really hospitable and available to answer many questions. My 10 year old and 8 year old are still begging to go back. We intend to visit again.

Peter Alsop here. I live in Topanga CA with my wife Ellen Geer where we run a theater. I'm 70, a psychologist who writes kids songs and lectures at conferences, and Ellen is an actress and director. 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.
