The Djerassi Resident Artist Program is tucked into the Woodside, CA’s Bear Gulch, providing writers and creatives alike with an oasis of privacy. The Diane Middlebrook Studios (informally known as the Writers Cabins) offer the ultimate remote hideaway — free of technology, Internet, social media and distractions. The four units face South-west with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. The units also feature private balconies, red cedar exteriors and a steel canopied roof. For added privacy, the units are even skewed away from each other to allow shut-in novelists to work completely devoid of distractions.
