"We needed a quick rental and we were so happy we were able to book Emma's Cottage! We came in a bit late but our host Mark was just gracious showing us around the most adorable cottage! Although we weren't in the cottage as much as we would have liked, there was every amenity we needed! Surround by redwoods, the outdoor smell was intoxicating as was the areas around the cottage. I loved how intimate it was! Do not hesitate to book Emma's cottage! Thanks Mark we had a lovely stay! See you again soon!"

"We stayed for 5 nights with our 2 year old daughter and were happy with all of the kid-friendly extras that the house offered. The drive up to the house is a little bit of an adventure, but once we'd gone back and forth a couple of times it was no big deal. The kitchen came well stocked with all of the items we needed for a week of cooking (we cooked nearly every night) and the grill outside was easy to operate and a real plus. The weather was very toasty down at the river most days, but the house stays nice and cool all day. My only complaint was the mosquitoes... they were intense in the "golden hour" around sunset when I really wanted to sit out on the patio/deck. The owners generously left a few citronella candles to use on the outdoor tables, but it wasn't enough to keep the mosquitoes at bay. Of course, my husband and daughter didn't get bit at all, but I was covered in bites! The location is excellent, with the coast about 15-20 minutes away, the river park only 5 minutes away, and Guerneville only 5 minutes away. It was so great to have a vacation that was only 1.5 hours away from our home in San Francisco; it really took the travel-related stress out of the vacation and we had a fantastic time. We didn't use the hot tub at all, but I imagine that it would be a pretty sweet addition to the stay to hang out under the canopy of the redwoods!"

"I have been renting this house for a number of years now and as always we really enjoyed our stay. The deck and viewed are lovely and the house is spacious and very comfortable. This is a unique property for the area so highly recommend that property."

"Our family with two young kids thoroughly enjoyed the house. Fantastic decks, great hot tub, the bocci court, and the charming creek. Great location, allowed us to visit the redwoods for a hike, the beach and also go wine tasting."
