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

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 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 Hacienda

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.

Great Russian River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great last-minute stay. Brett was easy to work with and the house worked out well. You are surrounded by tall trees and it really does feel like a "birdhouse." There are some solid wineries within 15 minutes drive and similarly close to downtown Guerneville. We would certainly consider another stay in the future.

A perfect stay

I couldn’t have found a better spot to take my wife for her birthday. Brett was friendly and quick to respond. There are endless adventures in the area. This upscale cabin in the woods will not disappoint.

Mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, rustic mountain retreat. Fully appointed kitchen, updated bathrooms, All the needed amenities are provided. Deck is large, private and has lovely hot tub. Location is convenient to wineries, state parks, and the coast. Owner responded promptly to questions and provides great info re places to go/things to do. My only recommendation would be to add some games, cards, puzzles...

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words and I am sorry I didn't list it but we have a good selection of games and cards in the turquoise cabinet under the dishes next to the dining room table. I will update the instructions for new guest and I am sorry I did not do so before your stay. So glad you enjoyed the place and thank you again for the kind review.

Perfectly themed property

  • 5 of 5

This home is well thought out in style and comfort for the region. It is laid out for two couples with room for two additional guests or small children. Kitchen is roomy (complete with good appliances), living room is quaint with room for six to enjoy the fire place and TV. Beds sleep so well and bathrooms are updated with tiled showers and high vanities. Above all, the deck is amazing. Nestled in the forest, the space is peaceful and beautiful. The homeowner planned well and is a responsive communicator. We loved our nine day stay.

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.
