Cazadero cottage description

Paradise Grove Cottage is the perfect retreat in Sonoma County. Come stay with us and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of Austin Creek with majestic Old Growth redwood trees towering above. Relax and unwind in our little corner of paradise.

This cottage is located just next to the grounds of the award-winning Raymond’s Bakery. While you are here, you are welcome to enjoy a sun-filled afternoon in the garden, take a dip in the Austin Creek swimming hole, play boccie ball relax under the gazebo, or nap under the apple tree. In the evenings you can partake in an old fashioned camp fire

Our bakery is always open Friday through Sunday with local musicians playing on Friday evenings for our Community Pizza, Beer & Wine Night.

Enjoy breakfast in your cottage or come by the bakery to sip a hot latte or espresso made with fresh ground organic fair trade coffee beans on our Redwood patio surrounded by centuries-old trees (our oldest is over 1,200 years old!).

Our cottages allow you to get away from it all! Or stay connected with our free wifi.

In addition to breakfast, Raymond’s Bakery offers sandwiches or pizza for lunch. Friday night is our Community Pizza, Beer & Wine Night, open until 9pm! Just check out our bakery web site (raymondsbakery) for our current seasonal hours. (Sonoma County has many other restaurants to enjoy.)

Want to explore the area? Check out the Russian River Chamber of Commerce website to find out what’s happening in the area. Within a 20-minute drive you can explore the Pacific Coast, Russian River Wineries, Armstrong Woods State Preserve, Northwood Golf Course or canoeing & kayaking on the Russian River.

We are located 20 minute from Guerneville, 40 minutes from Sebastopol, 50 minutes from Santa Rosa and 90 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge.

Some recent reviews from our guest log:

'What a Blessing! Thanks Mark and Elizabeth for sharing Paradise Grove and your inspiring story. We pray that everyone who visits will find the same peace we experienced here. I will be making plans to visit soon and hopefully every year. What a great way to experience our 10 year anniversary. Thanks again, and may God Bless your family and business.'

For 3 nights and 4 days of wonderment and rejuvenation, we thank you.'

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Nine years ago my wife and I fell in love with an abandoned restaurant with four tired cottages on three acres of wild blackberries and old growth redwoods on Austin Creek. It has been an exhausting/exhilarating labor of love that has enriched our lives in more ways than we ever imagined. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have!

              Why the Owner Chose Cazadero:
              We spent nine years walking past this cottage and dreaming of living there someday. Imagining having a cup of coffee on the front deck in the morning with the gentle babble of the creek for company. When it finally came up for sale, we bent over backwards to be able to make our dream come true. We hope that you will enjoy being a part of our dream.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We own and are the bakers at Raymond's Bakery Bed & Breakfast just a three minute walk around the redwoods. So be ready for some gold-medal baked goodies to welcome you to our corner of paradise. We can also share the secrets of a few swimming holes and where to find the best skipping stones. The cottage is directly across from the creek. You can hear the babbling from the bedroom windows as you fall asleep.
