Relax among the redwoods at the Birds Nest Cottage. You are tucked away near a hillside in a Guerneville neighborhood surrounded by plenty of natural landscaping, wildlife including birds and of course the majestic redwoods, striking the perfect balance of sun and shade. Located just down the road from Korbel Champagne winery (and 130+ other wineries), Guerneville offers a year round retreat from the city hustle. It’s a short car or bike ride to downtown Guerneville and Johnson’s Beach where the main summer fun on the river takes place with paddle boats and canoe rentals. And steps away from pee wee miniature golf, playground, dog run, tennis court, and community pool open in the summer months. We are also a quick drive to the Pacific Ocean and Armstrong Woods.
Birds Nest Cottage is also an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the stars in your own private hot tub among the towering Redwoods. Or curl up with a good book near the fire wood stove and enjoy a glass of local chardonnay. The first thing you'll notice when you enter the cottage is the cathedral ceiling and custom windows that bring the outside in. The interior décor of the two bedrooms, two baths and large family room with a queen size sofa bed is a delightful mix of the contemporary with antiques. It features new plush carpeting, comfortable queen and full-sized beds, ample closet space, multiple pillows, comforters and high grade linens. Each adult guest receives their own personal 3-piece towel set, and spa towel.
Modern comforts include High Speed Wi-Fi, HD Flat Screen TV’s with full cable, DVD players, plus iPod/iPhone docking station. There are also lots of books and games available. In the evening, the living room glows from the wall sconces, which cast a soft light up and down. You can create any mood you want, thanks to sophisticated, updated circuitry, and candles.
The well-equipped kitchen is well-stocked with all the essentials (cookware, spices, olive oil, etc.), refrigerator, gas range, microwave, coffee maker & grinder, blender and toaster to make cooking a feast fun and easy. There is an adjoining dining area with seating for up to six. You can also choose to eat alfresco on the patio and use the chef style Charbroil grill. Whatever your pleasure, this is the perfect retreat.

About: We are based here in a major city in the Bay Area and love visiting the Russian River region. We bought this home as a retreat and have decided to share its charm with like minded folks. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We fell in love with the cathedral ceilings and large windows that make the home spacious and cozy. Not to mention its unique rustic facade. We also appreciate the very private backyard with towering redwoods surrounding the hot tub.
