Just an hour from San Francisco is the perfect location for a relaxing getaway. Meandering into the small village of Rio Nido under the tall redwoods is a delight as you enter this Beautiful Bohemian Retreat in the Trees.
Perched on a hill overlooking the redwoods, the Bohemian Retreat has been updated with a modern eclectic style with beautiful furnishings and a great room with a glass wall which gives you the feeling your living in the tree tops. Originally built in the 1920's this cabin has been updated and decorated to accommodate up to six guests. The Bohemian Retreat has three comfy bedrooms with three bathrooms so there is plenty of space for you and your guests. One bedroom is upstairs with the living room and kitchen and the other two bedrooms are located downstairs. Still maintaining it's rustic cabin charm the decks are amazing and a beautiful place to eat, drink and enjoy the tranquility of the Redwoods.
There is a full kitchen with most everything you'll need to prepare basic meals and a dishwasher for cleanup. The Bohemian Retreat is self catering so please bring your own food and spices. There is a Safeway grocery store in Guerneville just two miles down the road.
We have a gas fireplace in the spacious open living room and in the fall and winter we do our best to have it on, warm and cozy for your arrival.
