Property description

Come relax and unwind in a tranquil cabin in the trees. Located just a mile from downtown Guerneville near the idyllic Russian River, this charming hillside cottage is perfect for a romantic retreat, an outdoor adventure, or working on that novel you've been meaning to write. You truly feel away from it all in this peaceful setting with stunning forest views. Simple vintage furnishings and a lack of distracting technological amenities allow you to enjoy the quiet curled up on the couch in front of a fire or lounging on the spacious, private deck with outdoor shower and tree swing. Take a short stroll to the neighborhood beach at Summer Crossing, or explore the many wineries, restaurants, hiking trails and antique shops in the surrounding area.

Built in the 1930s as a summer getaway, the cabin was beautifully crafted from local redwood trees with a number of delightful details that make it unique. The lower level has a cozy bedroom with a built-in full size bed. The bathroom has tiled floor and a redwood shower. Exit the lower level to go up the stairs to the upper level, which has a spacious open living, dining and kitchen area. The living area has a comfortable convertible bed in front of a wood stove. Sit on the stool at the bar while your loved one prepares a meal in the kitchen equipped with refrigerator, stove, oven and utensils. Enjoy your meal at the dining room table while looking out over the trees from the giant picture windows.

****PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING****
We try to be very up front about what our cabin is and what it is not. Please read this description thoroughly, as well as traveler reviews, and think about whether this is the right fit for your traveling style and expectations. We are not a five-star resort, we are a homey, unpolished cabin in the woods - there are occasionally mosquitos and spiders in the woods, redwood cabins get musty when it rains, vintage rugs and outfittings are sometimes shabby without the "chic" - we are honest about what we offer here. Those who love peace and quiet and rustic getaways from modernity LOVE our place, don't mind the stair workout to get there, and keep coming back. People who are looking for a fancy hotel experience on the cheap are not so happy. Know yourself and make an informed decision. Thank you and please read on for important things of note:

Kids and pets are welcome at your own risk as there are no child safe railings on the deck and no fenced-in area for dogs. The cabin is on a quarter-acre of wooded land on a hill. There are about 80 steps from the parking area to the cabin (see picture #14), so it is definitely not wheelchair accessible and may be difficult for the elderly or those with knee problems. The privacy on the hill is worth the trek!

Due to its lack of central heating and insulation, the Treehouse will not be available for rent in December and January. This is Due to popular demand, we have extended our season to include November, February and March. We do this with the caveat that it may rain and could be very chilly, but if you want it, you got it.
You got our scoop, now please read the reviews to see what our guests say before you request a reservation, keeping your traveling style in mind.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Guerneville:
We fell in love with this cabin the moment we saw it. It is absolutely charming and we feel removed from the stresses of the world while we are there, yet we can head out and be at any number of amazing restaurants in minutes. With the Russian River just a short walk away, the beautiful coast a mere 15 minute drive, and the amazing unpretentious plethora of wineries nearby, this location has all the best Sonoma County has to offer. We have traveled extensively, and we feel it is truly one of the best locations in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have intentionally kept our cabin as simple as possible. While we are there, we don't want the distractions of television or the internet. Other places may offer more amenities, but our peaceful place is perfect for reconnecting with nature and one another or just enjoying a good book in silence. Plus, there aren't too many places private enough that you can enjoy a shower in the outdoors under the redwoods.
