Redwood Retreat - Upscale Vintage Home with Sunny Private Deck in the Redwoods.

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath 1925 home has been extensively remodeled as a labor of love

Located along the Russian River between Guerneville and Healdsberg, this home will allow you to get away from it all while being close to all the things you want to do. Walking distance to Mother's Beach. Just about two miles from the nearest wineries and a short drive to Healdsberg or Guerneville.

With two bedrooms and baths the home is ideal for two couples but will sleep 6 comfortably, 4 in two queen sized beds and 2 on a fold out air mattress sofa or 2 in a daybed located in the master. We are limited by the county to 6 guest.

There is a gourmet kitchen with electric appliances including a dishwasher that is well stocked enough you can cook thanksgiving dinner.

We have a 6 person hot tub on the deck under the redwoods and starts at night.

When reserving the property, please let me know something about your group and why you are visiting the area.

Please note there is a small owners unit on site below the house you are staying in and it is occupied at the will of the owner, has a completely separate entrance and will not intrude upon your experience or privacy above. Also there is no central air conditioning but nights are predictably cool and we do provide fans.

About Brett B

I work in home improvement and live in San Francisco. I love to travel and have been using home-sharing sites for some time. I love coming north to visit the redwoods, wineries and everything Sonoma has to offer.

Brett B purchased this house in 2013

Why Brett B chose Russian River

I loved the place from the moment I stepped foot inside the gate. The redwoods coming though the deck, the privacy, the funkiness of it all. We spent 7 months remodeling to make the place shine. I truly love the space and hope you do too.

What makes this house unique

Not far at all from River Road and Mothers Beach but far removed from it all. This is a great place to relax and reconnect. There is a very open floor plan with the living room, dining room kitchen and deck all connected. The bedrooms are tucked in the back off a more private deck.

There are great wineries, breweries and holes in the walls that serve great food.

My favorite thing to do on a hot summer day is to stash a car downstream and walk to the beach and float the day away.

Beautiful and charming.

  • 5 of 5

Great area and minutes from so many wineries. We loved our stay in this charming cottage. A gen hidden away in the woods, we enjoyed the little nuances this place had - little nooks, crannies and finishing touches that made the place perfect for our family.

Great house and a great location for a Russian River experience

  • 4 of 5

The house, bathrooms, kitchen and yard was exceptionally clean. The location is private and nestled in the redwoods. The kitchen is well appointed with pots, pans, flatware, dishes, basic spices and a wonderful view. The yard was completely enclosed, which was perfect for the kids and our small dog. The walked down to the river to fish and swim, and it's a short drive to town and several wineries. We'll definitely go back.

As Advertised...

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect little retreat for a week of exploring wine country, the redwoods, & the Sonoma coast. The deck and the fully appointed kitchen were the big pluses for us since we mostly day-tripped into Napa and Sonoma for wine and food tasting during the day and had relaxing dinners on the deck at night. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay here. Thank you for allowing us to use your home Brett.

Great location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the July 4th weekend at this great property. It's walking distance to the river and a short drive to wineries and restaurants. The house has been remodeled, but also retains a lot of old world character. It's very private and comfortable. The owner Brett has great communication skills and makes everything easy. We will be back for another visit soon!

Perfect, peaceful getaway at the redwood retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the redwood retreat as a home base while we were in the area for a wedding. Coming from Boston, the environment was so unique and different. Having the back deck with the redwoods popping through was really special and there was more that one nap taken in the hammock.

The kitchen was very well equipped as we cooked a lot of the time we were there. The bedrooms and bathrooms were cozy and nicely done. The bed itself was so comfortable, we couldn't get out of it. We enjoyed the proximity to the river, and the ocean and the armstrong redwood forest. Really cool area of the country that we would love to return to.

Thanks for making it so easy and comfortable.
