About Heather Penoli

We love all of the amenities the area has to offer, from the wine country to the Sonoma Coast to the beautiful redwood forest, and everything in between. Cazadero is the perfect in between place. Just a few minutes to the beach and just a few minutes to the magical town of Guerneville, the location offered everything we wanted in a place to take our families for a private and peaceful vacation.

We have gone to great lengths to make sure the house has everything we need to make our time there as comfortable as possible. We all have children and this is a wonderful place for kids. They say home is where the heart is, and this is truly our 2nd home.

Heather Penoli purchased this house in 2013

Why Heather Penoli chose Sonoma County

For us it has been a long love affair with the supernatural magic of the redwoods. This place is enchanting and is one of those unique towns tucked away in the hills of California's redwood forest. The home was completely redone and remodeled in 2013, but still has the charm and feel you'd expect from a wine country retreat.

Austin Creek has long been known for it's serenity and clean, clear water. We have our own private beach and easy access to it. There is plenty of room to sleep multiple families with the 5 beds and nothing smaller than a queen size.

Once you arrive here, you will see why it is called the Creekside Retreat. It offers all the peacefulness and privacy you desire for your vacation. There are very few places like this in California.

What makes this house unique

You are invited to walk, hike, bike ride, camp & horseback ride on over 200 miles of trails that weave through a variety of environments, including old-growth redwood forests, winding creeksides, meandering rivers and rocky coastal beaches. Sonoma County is one of the most desired destinations in the entire world.

Wonderful home in the Redwoods.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fire with lovely wines from afternoons adventures each evening. The location allowed us to visit Armstrong Redwoods in AM and Wine Country in afternoon. We also loved its close proximity to the coast as we chased sunsets in Bodega Bay (Tides Inn for dinner) and Jenner Rivers Edge for dinner. The location enabled us to do all three adventures....Wine; Redwoods and Coastal. We had a wonderful trip so thank you.

Very nice house on the creek with beautiful scenery close to the coast, river and redwoods.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The creek was serene. We visited during the heat wave so it was quite enjoyable to float and stroll through the crisp water. There was plenty of room in the house and it was furnished very nicely. The fire pit seating and picnic tables provided a relaxing outside setting for dinners and grilling.

Amazing location. Perfect way to enjoy the Russian River Valley

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly located: the surrounding forest and the creek at the bottom of the garden make evenings next to the fire pit and grill a joy. The house itself had every comfort needed, Heather was incredibly accommodating. We couldn't have been happier.

Nice house by the creek

  • 4 of 5

Had a good weekend staying at the house - 2 families with small kids. The creek access was nice, with lots of water this spring.

Downsides which caused me to not give 5 stars:

- Shortage of blankets. For some reason there's a huge number of pillows, but barely enough blankets. We were 8 people, and didn't find enough blankets for the beds downstairs. Less of an issue in the summer I'm sure, but given this spring had unusually cold spells, it did matter. Hopefully the owner can just add some more blankets, or if you are aware, bring some extras...

- Being on a main road with cars driving very fast. This was a concern with small kids - had to keep a close eye when they were in the front of the house. Not a huge deal, but worth being aware of.

- Price: was somewhat high for the area and this type of property.

That said, overall still was great and we would consider it again when going up to the area.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Listing is as described. Beautiful serene spot along the creek. 3 couples, one kiddo and two dogs enjoyed the warmth indoors and out over the NYE weekend. Great place to cook and entertain, with luxurious views of the woods. Jenner beach is a 10 minute drive away, lots of coastal hiking available within a short distance. Would stay again and definitely recommend.
