About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom above the Russian River in the Redwoods.
Find yourselves in perfect comfort for a romantic weekend or week for two. Snuggle on the couch by the fire, enjoy the quality entertainment center with WiFi, catch up on your reading in the window seat, create locavore meals in the fully equipped kitchen, or wander the decks and garden. The downstairs bedroom has french doors opening to the sound of a seasonal creek. A huge claw-foot tub with shower awaits in the downstairs bathroom. In the summer enjoy the outdoor fireplace and in the winter light up a couple logs in the fireplace stove. The spa under a redwood tree fairy ring provides the perfect beginning or end to any day here. Ample nooks and crannies and delightful landscaping keeps the mood magical and rustically elegant in every season. Visiting in the summer you will be joining others enjoying this vacation destination on the river. Most other seasons you may well find yourselves pretty much alone in tranquility and peace.

Springhill Cabin is located in Summer Home Park (SHP). SHP is a community of summer homes developed in 1909 for families from San Francisco looking for a summer escape. Generations have enjoyed this idyllic location enjoying peaceful redwood hikes, swimming and canoeing the river, tasting the wine country and exploring the nearby Pacific Coast. It's no longer merely a summer retreat. It's a year round escape.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are two retired nurses who are privileged to own this lovely get away. We've lived in the Bay Area over 30 years, sharing weekend explorations and meals with family and friends in the midst of the wonderful mix of cultures and physical beauty that is California.
Why the Owner Chose Summerhome Park, CA, USA:
For years we've thrived by enjoying the great outdoors of Northern California - from the parks near our home in Oakland, to the trails of Yosemite, to beach hikes along the Pacific Ocean. In time we settled on looking for our own vacation property in the Guerneville area as it is in the middle of much that we hold dear in life on the West Coast of Paradise. Over the last few years our real estate agent was patient enough to show us dozens of homes but none caught our desires till we saw Springhill Cabin. Here we can have no ambition, sit and read, write, drink wine and cook some great meals. Or we can decide to walk down to the river for a swim, or we can up our ambitions to drive to the ocean and climb a hill to watch the whales. Armstrong Redwood State Park provides great hikes. We can be wine tasting or antiquing in minutes, enjoy an exquisite dinner in unpretentious restaurants....and then head home to Springhill Cabin. How could we not want to have you enjoy this, too.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is a Craftsman cabin with redwood paneling, period touches, a comfy reading nook/window seat with views into the trees. There is a hot tub under a Redwood fairy ring. The fully equipped and delightful kitchen rocks with a vintage O'Keefe & Merritt gas stove, basic pantry goods, and bright windows. There is a large gas grill outside the kitchen door. The bathroom has a claw foot tub and towel warmer. The bed has pleasantly surprised many visitors with sleeping difficulties - don't be surprised if you sleep well past your usual hour. Deer frequently visit the property. A large deck provides space for outdoor dining or roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Oh, did we mention the air? It could not be any fresher than here. Convenient accommodations for wine country events, biking and triathlons,and nearby music festivals.
