Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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. 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 a 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, utensils, and essential condiments. Enjoy your meal at the dining room table while looking out over the trees from the giant picture windows.

****PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING****

Please read this description thoroughly, as well as traveler reviews, to ensure our cabin is the right fit for your traveling style and expectations. This is a homey, unpolished cabin in the woods. 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. 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. 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 chilly, but if you want it, you got it.

Why The Owner chose Russian River

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

serene

  • 5 of 5

Well-outfitted, well-tended, well-positioned... what more do you want? A sweet little get-away. Plan ahead to not have too many loads to carry up the many steps to access "The Treehouse". This also adds to its charm, as you settle into "here I am and I have no need to be anywhere else". Of course you can traipse back down those many steps and easily access so many beautiful spots in the forests or the coast! Great combination.

Perfect Russian River getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend there and everything was perfect, such a cozy retreat up in the hills.

Would recommend to anyone that doesn't mind a hike up to the cabin.

Wonderful unique property

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful and unique property. The house is filled with charm and a sence of stepping back in time though with all the modern conveniences. The bedroom and very well fitted out bathroom are downstairs. It feel like you are entering a nest set high in the trees. The living area with kitchen, dining area and living space are on the upper level together with the deck. The redwoods tower above everything. While it feels remote, the very charming town is less than ten minutes away. Access was no problem for me but those with bad knees might want to ponder carefully. In fact those stairs added to the sense of privacy. My only regret was that I was not able to stay longer. In summary, I would give this property my highest recommendation.

Quiet timeout !!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a rustic and secluded getaway. The stairs upon arriving at night were kind of an adventure, but we planned our trips accordingly to limit the amount of times we had to climb them. We felt very safe and peaceful away from the craziness of the modern world these days. The nearby vineyards and wine tasting rooms were fabulous. The surrounding area was gorgeous and although the evenings were wet and cool, we were comfortable and relaxed. I don't know about taking children there due to the terrain and limited space, but for a couple this is an ideal place to reconnect and spend quality time together. Reading a book in front of the fireplace was really a nice touch.
