Past the dining area, the master suite has a full bath and its own wisteria-covered deck. At the other end of the living area, off the living room, there's a bedroom a half bath. Both the half bath and the bedroom open to the shower room. Beyond the shower room, there's another bedroom, which has its own entry from the front of the house. Off the living room, there's a fully fenced yard with lawn areas, patio with outdoor dining, and garden with seating under the redwoods. Beyond the patio and garden gate, there's a short path to the Redwood-grove hot tub deck.

Wonderful rental in the trees. 5 stars.Guest comment entered by manager
Wonderful rental in the trees. 5 stars.
We stayed here for a girls get-together for two nights. Everything went perfectly. There are ample dishes, glass wear, etc. The hot tub was a highlight for us as it is situated right in the middle of a ring of redwood trees. We were worried it wasn't hot enough at first, but it was fine. The view from the hot tub is amazing! So many trees. The only criticism we have would be sooo many rules on the Information Sheet coming from the property manager. Perhaps it's a necessary evil as there are those who don't take care of another's property, but all the threats of fees for violations were a bit off-putting. Besides that, great place and we would rent there again. One of the girls left a swimsuit in one of the bathrooms and management was kind enough to locate it and mail it to her. Manager Response to Girls get-away weekend in the North Bay Thanks for the review, and it's great that you enjoyed Arcadia. It is a very special property. We do have rules, many due to the vacation rental permit regulations set forth by the county. We get in trouble if those rules are broken, so the penalties are important to make sure people know to take them seriously. Most people don't need to be told, but there are always the exceptions! -Rachel From TripAdvisor: http://www.flipkey.com/reviews/isi_popup/0323/ARCADIA/

It was great!
We really enjoyed the home. Our daughter and her family joined us for part of our 3 week stay. The house is perfect for 2 families. The location is beautiful - the views from the windows are beautiful. We had only one real problem. Not enough hot water. After one person took a short shower, there wasn't any hot water left. After service people came to correct the problem, we still did not more hot water. The people at Russian River Getaways were really nice to work with and prompt to any requests we made. By billie from Houston, TX. Reposted by owner from TripAdvisor: TripAdvisor: http://www.flipkey.com/reviews/isi_popup/0323/ARCADIA/ Owner note: we're working on figuring out the plumbing issue. The tank is 40gals, which should support two showers. So, not sure what the problem is, but we'll get to the bottom of it. Thx.

I would recommend to my best friend!
This rental is so awesome, we've rented it for next year, as well. The home itself is clean and well-maintained...very comfortable for 6 people. The fact that you're on top of a hill, with hawks flying eye level with you, and not another soul to be heard...amazing. We're definitely looking forward to our summer vacation next year! reposted by owner from TripAdvisor: http://www.flipkey.com/reviews/isi_popup/0323/ARCADIA/

So great. So very, very great.
So great. So very, very great.
This hilltop retreat looks out over nothing but serene, forested ridges. However, you could almost literally throw a rock down the other side of the hill and hit downtown Guerneville. So when you run out of coffee or wine or sriracha, it's just minutes away. The house is perfect for group gatherings. Three bedrooms, two baths, a sleep sofa, a large main room, a hot tub, and a scenic patio make great memories together. And the owners are friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend staying here.

Sunny and Spacious!

This was a wonderful spot to gather with family and friends, with a spacious central kitchen/living room gathering place, and big, comfortable, quiet bedrooms. Both backyard and hot tub area have a beautiful view of the rolling hills of the Russian River Valley and the town of Guerneville, including restaurants, groceries, and the Russian River itself, are just down the hill. A great place to kick back and relax or to use as a home base while exploring the river and coast.

Perfect get-away location with views!
Perfect get-away location with views!
We stayed here with 3 other families for the weekend--8 adults and 2 toddlers-- and it was a great space. Large clean rooms, beautiful bathrooms, open floor plan for kitchen and living room and best of all...incredible valley views and a brand new hot tub nestled among the redwood trees. The house is very private and accessed through a security fence (shared with just a few other homes), and there is tons of outdoor space on the property itself to explore. It's also a short drive down the hill into the town of Guernville. I would recommend this place and would stay here again for sure!

About: Charlene and Ben live in San Francisco with their two kids, and crazy Bernese Mountain Dog, Elf. We hire Russian River Getaways to provide on-site help and management.
We feel in love with the property just after getting out of the car to see it. It combines unique and stunning architecture with privacy, nature, and a hot-tub location to die for. It feels far removed from town on top of a mountain ridge - but you can get down the hill in five minutes, when you forget a prime ingredient for that perfect recipe. Please note that we hire Russian River Getaways to provide on-site help and management. They're great!
