Hummingbird House is a beautiful find: a lovely well-equipped home on a sunny property with views, privacy, numerous amenities, and a central Russian River Valley location. Sit out on one of the lovely decks with morning coffee, soaking up the sun, enjoying the tranquility. Then, set off on a great day of exploring all Sonoma County has to offer! When the day is done, come back, make dinner with the local ingredients you've collected, and take an evening soak in the large hot tub.
Hummingbird House is a 3 story home nestled on a sloping hill and overlooking a grove of redwood trees. The top story, which is also the entry-level, has the open living room, kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen is well-equipped, the dining table comfortably seats 6 people, and the living room has floor to ceiling windows, a large couch, a flat screen TV (you can log in to your Netflix, Pandora or HuluPlus accounts) and a wood-burning stove. Sliding doors lead from the dining area out to the first of three decks, where the gas BBQ and outdoor dining table are located. Also on the top story are a small office, with a desk perfect for finishing a bit of work or browsing the internet, and a bathroom with a free-standing tub.
The second story, accessed by stairs from the living area, has a bedroom with a queen bed, a half bath/laundry room, and the master bedroom, with a king bed, its own bathroom and sliding doors to the middle story deck. The master bedroom bathroom has a shower/bathtub combo. Stairs from the middle story hall lead to the lowest story, which is entirely made up of a bedroom suite with a queen bed, small sitting area and a bathroom with a shower. A door leads from the suite to the lowest deck, where the large hot tub and lounge chairs are located. The hot tub deck can also be accessed by a spiral staircase from the second level deck or from stairs leading up from the yard.
The meadow-like yard is large and is full of open space and scattered fruit trees. The upper portion of the sloping hillside is tastefully landscaped. There is plenty of space for kids to play and dogs to run (please note the yard is not fenced, so unleashed dogs need to be under voice control). Surrounding the open meadow area is a forest of redwood trees. The Russian River is just down the road, and river access is less than a mile away. The start of Russian River Valley Wineries is less than 3 miles away.

About Russian River Vacation Homes
We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Superb place to stay for visiting family in Santa Rosa. House was excellent.
Cozy AND Spacious at the same time
I really loved this house. Each floor is compact and cozy, comfortable for the whole family, but there are enough floors that a person wanting privacy could find it. The wooded setting was very tranquil. The drive to Healdsburg and Santa Rosa very easy. It was a great base of operations for exploring the area.
We loved the location and the size of the bedrooms.
This property is perfect for multiple couples/people. There are rooms on different floors (each with their own bathrooms) and a bathroom on the main floor, so it's perfect for time with the group and time to yourself. The downstairs room is DEFINITELY the best with it's own fireplace and a newly re-done bathroom. The backyard is beautiful and I can only imagine how wonderful this property is in the summer. A bit off the beaten path, but if you have a car in the area, this is definitely the place to stay.
Fantastic stay! Couldn't ask for a better place!
Our stay at the Hummingbird House was fantastic. It is located in a perfect spot, lots of privacy, yet so close to some amazing wineries and the Russian River. We wish we could've stayed longer!
Great House within 20 minutes to so many great things!
House was clean and comfortable. Yard was spacious and with all the trees on the property you felt secluded and it was quiet. 20 minutes from Redwoods, 20 minutes from Downtown Santa Rosa, and minutes to so many wineries.
Wine tasting in West Sonoma County in the Russian River Valley is world famous! And at Hummingbird House you are minutes from fantastic tasting rooms! You are also just a short drive from the Russian River, and there are great restaurants in downtown Forestville and Guerneville, just minutes away! Hummingbird House is a 30 to 40 minutes drive to the coast, and 15 minutes from beautiful Armstrong Woods.
