Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Daybed, Trundle, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Nestled among the redwoods of Cazadero, Creekside Cottage is located in the oasis of Elim Grove, on the grounds of the award-winning Raymond's Bakery – the perfect place to unwind and enjoy Sonoma County.

We enjoy providing a warm, appetizing atmosphere in this undiscovered woodland paradise along tranquil Austin Creek, only 20 minutes from Guerneville, Russian River wineries, or the Pacific Ocean.

Creekside Cottage sleeps 2 in an crisp, light wood interior with stylish furnishings and a queen bed. It also features a cozy sitting room as well as a small garden view room with a daybed (with trundle), a propane wood stove, a microwave & fridge, and a private bathroom with shower.

The cottage is only a stone's throw from Austin Creek and a few minute walk up the creek to a swimming hole. Wake up to the bubbling of the creek, take a plunge, enjoy strolls along nearby trails, play bocce, relax under the gazebo and nap in the garden room or under the Gravenstein apple tree. Share a romantic evening in front of the propane wood stove or by the campfire.

Please note that Creekside Cottage can sleep up to 4 people including the twin daybed with lower trundle. There is a per night charge for each additional person beyond double occupancy. Children 4 and under are free.

For larger groups of up to 17 persons, book Elim Grove Cottage together with Gravenstein Cottage, Paradise Grove Cottage, Creekside Cottage and Baker's Loft - all located on the grounds near the bakery.

'We stayed a few nights with Mark and Elizabeth, and all I can say is they are the best hosts ever. . .Our daughter loved the little playground next to the bakery, it was also a plus that Mark offered a stroller which we forgot at home. Every morning a hot breakfast was provided and it was delicious!'

About Mark Weiss

Sixteen years ago I fell in love with an abandoned restaurant with four tired cottages on three acres of wild blackberries and old growth redwoods on Austin Creek. It has been an exhausting/exhilarating labor of love that has enriched our lives in more ways than we ever imagined. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have!

Mark Weiss purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mark Weiss chose Cazadero

Come stay with us and benefit from the tranquility and beauty of Austin Creek with majestic Old Growth redwoods towering above. Relax and unwind in our little corner of paradise.

Our Cottages are located on the grounds of award-winning Raymond’s Bakery. While you are here, you are welcome to enjoy an afternoon in the garden, take a stroll along Austin Creek, play bocce, relax under the gazebo or nap under the Gravenstein apple tree. In the evenings you can unwind by the campfire.

What makes this cottage unique

We own and are the bakers at Raymond's Bakery Bed & Breakfast just a three minute walk around the redwoods. So be ready for some gold-medal baked goodies to welcome you to our corner of paradise. We can also share the secrets of a few swimming holes and where to find the best skipping stones. The cottage is directly across from the creek. You can hear the babbling from the bedroom windows as you fall asleep.

Amazing and I will be back

  • 4 of 5

Mark is an amazing host from the moment you walk in the door till the moment you leave. The accommodations are clean and comfortable the bed was very comfortable and everything you need is in the Cottages. He even has a fire pit for everyone to join around in the early evening. He serves the most incredible baked goods in the morning.Wonderful experience and I will be back for sure.

Great personal experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start?

Mark the host - one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Willing to do anything he is able to make your stay wonderful.

The bakery was everything we thought it would be and then some!! Breakfast was scrumptious with fresh baked items (right out of the oven) pretty whatever you could want. Then the custom espressos...all of it? Yum!!

Friday nights offer a wonderful community experience as locals come to the bakery’s Elim Grove for the incredibly tasty homemade oven baked pizza, all while listening to a good (yes, actually very good) local band.

The unit itself is rustic and charming. There’s no cell service, but the Wi-Fi easily makes up the difference.

There is a redwood forest nearby offering easy to difficult scenic trails.

Great experience!

Exactly what Mark promised it would be

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed a night here at Raymond's and we will be back sooner rather than later. The cottage is rustic and small, clean and cozy. Listening to the creek babble at you all night long was a dream. If you're looking for a generous and delicious breakfast of pastries and breads, then this is your spot. It's a family business and you'll be greeted by his lovely children in pajamas in the morning plus maybe a shy visit from the cat Minnie. There isn't any cell service available, so this is the place to come to when you really need to escape. I can't wait to come back and spend some more time here maybe this summer...birthdays are coming...

Beautiful cottages set amongst the redwoods.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a restful retreat. The vicinity to the redwoods and the creek is amazing. We definitely want to come back in the warmer months to swim! Mark was kind and his baked goods are delicious. He clearly works hard and cares for the community in Cazadero. We would recommend staying here.
