Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This cabin was transformed in 2011 into a cozy get-away situated in the heart of Guerneville, just and hour and a half North of San Francisco.

There are 40 steps to the first level. The first level offers a bedroom with its own private bathroom and walk out onto the main deck. The main deck has a fire pit (duraflame only) and Adirondack chairs for those warm evenings along with a grill for BBQ.

The main floor has a living room, two bedrooms and the main bathroom. We have wifi access, Apple TV and a DVD player. There is a redbox in town that you can rent movies or you can use our Apple TV account with 80 purchased movies, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Videos. The house is heated with a beautiful gas fireplace that is thermostat controlled.

The main floor also has a full kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and microwave. There are two bedrooms with generous under-bed storage compartments and cooling from ceiling fans.

There are three additional decks, all completely private above street level. The mid-tier deck has an six person hot-tub, surrounded by redwood trees. The upper deck, above the cabin has an eight person outdoor table ready to accommodate an intimate few or larger party. The top deck has a view platform with Adirondack chairs for quiet reading.

Access to the Russian River is just a short walk (less than two blocks) from the cabin.

Keywords: This is a beautiful little cabin in the redwoods with a nice mix of sun coming through the trees. Luxury and nature mixed.

Perfect cabin for a perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a good bit of time trying to find the perfect place for us to get together with family. We ultimately chose Michael's cabin and we were not disappointed, nor were the other 2 couples who joined us. The cabin was cozy, clean, tastefully decorated, and quite dialed in with the amenities. The beds in all 3 bedrooms were some of the most comfortable beds around (all of them made up with very pretty, high-quality bedding). The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes and enough pots and pans (if you are creative) to put out a meal for six people. We spent a lot of time enjoying the lovely deck, while sipping some of the wine we got touring Sonoma, and playing some of the games that Michael has in his cabin for his guests. The little town in which this cabin is located, Guerneville, is charming and welcoming and not too long a walk away.

Michael was extremely gracious and very responsive. His instructions for gaining access to the cabin were clear and simple. All in all, we would choose his lovely cabin again. It most certainly met our expectations.

I need a refund on my cleaning fee since it was not cleaned well before we arrived.

  • 2 of 5

We were in town for a wedding so we spent little time in this unit but if you were using this as a destination, pick another property. This is my first VRBO rental and I will get smarter. This rental had no clothes closets, no news cable channels, pets had been there so watch out for allergies, and only queen size beds--no kings. It had been remodeled but it must only be used as a rental because the bedding and towels were tired and I didn't get the feeling that the bedspread was washed often. I was charged a cleaning fee but it was not particularly clean when we arrived--crumbs on top of the refrigerator, weird lint on the coffee table and opened condiments in the refrigerator that no one would ever think to use. The shower also was slick so I am thinking that the cleaning service just squirted soap and didn't scrub or rinse it. As you can guess, we didn't use any of the kitchen glasses or dishes.

Owner's Response: The renter is right there are no closets. It's a small depression era cabin and they were all on the small size. We have fixed the cable news issue but installing Apple TV for our guests. They can stream a ton of different programs. The renter is right in that we do allow for pets. We clean very thoroughly afterwards. We don't charge extra. The beds are indeed queen-size. There isn't room for king size in the bedrooms. We do let guests leave condiments and charcoal and lighter. Up until now we haven't had any comments on sharing ketchup and mayo. If we receive more we will re-address the policy. As for the cleaning, I have a service that comes for the spa and cleaning after every stay. The lady that does it has been cleaning for me for 7 years and does a wonderful job. We are sorry we didn't meet your expectations but we will still welcome you to come back someday and give us another shot.

Small cozy

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated and well maintained home and was fine for two nights with 5 women. The 3 bedrooms are good sized with comfy beds. There are no closets so plan on living out of your suitcases. Both bathrooms are large with plenty of storage in the upstairs bathroom. The living room is very small and the seating is uncomfortable. The couch is a futon and the mattress kept slipping down so we finally just opened it up and sat on it like a chaise lounge with pillows behind us. That really needs to be fixed. We blew a fuse at breakfast and were never able to reset the hot tub fuse so only used it our first night. Our neighbors had obnoxious parties both nights and we finally had to call the sheriff to quiet them and their music down. There is a picnic table but not convenient to get to so we ate in chairs on the deck as there is no table inside which was fine. We brought prepared food that could be eaten cold or warmed up and i would recommend that as the counter space is tiny. Two cars in the driveway need to be small small cars. And from the driveway to the front door are 49 stairs!. We are hikers so we are in good shape for seniors. I loved sitting on the deck enjoying the redwoods. It was nice and priced right but next time i will look for something bigger.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback dear guests. The futon from hell is no longer. We bought a lovely couch that is super comfy. The fuse issue has been resolved by our local electrician. The party issues have been addressed by Sonoma County. They are only giving 3 warnings before the person loses their license. So hopefully that will make everyone' stay nicer. Just FYI quiet hours are 10pm to 8am. There is room for 2 honda accords. Probably not room for 2 Chevy Tahoes. There is space down the road for more cars.

Felt like we were all in a treehouse.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this house while working in Cloverdale, loved the location in the trees. The beds were so comfortable and the hot tub a delight. Would definitely come back for a non work get away.

Why Michael Deneui chose Guerneville

I love the Russian River. It is beautiful. The house is only 20 minutes walk to downtown and the scenery is gorgeous. This is upscale Guerneville in a very quiet and charming neighborhood.
