Overview

About the property

2 Full Modern Suites and two Cottages, sleeps 10, close to Drake's Beach.

Outside Inn is your own personal mini-resort & play-land that sleeps 10 guests comfortably. Come enjoy a very private & magical property to share some unforgettable memories with your family and friends.

Inside and out, this modern, spacious, and recently fully remodeled home is designed for your comfort and enjoyment. Step out to a private deck, hot tub, gas grill, and an outdoor living and dining area overlooking the peaceful and large backyard and pristine redwood forest. A canopy shades half the deck if you want to read or watch the clouds slide by on a warm afternoon, or recline in one of the lounge chairs if you’d rather work on your tan. The lush backyard is a private world unto itself, surrounded by Russian River fauna yet with enough open space for a game of soccer. Walk a short trail of less than 100 yards through redwoods just a half block from the house to the huge neighborhood beach where you can spend a hot summer day swimming, lounging alongside the river, or taking the house’s kayaks on a river adventure.

Two Flats & Two Cottages

The Outside Inn is a comfortable home with two separate-entrance modern suites, each with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen. There are also two cozy cottages on the property: one is the perfect fifth bedroom and the other is a serene studio that can be used for meditation or as a child’s play room.

Upstairs Flat

Featuring the main gathering area of the home, the fully remodeled upstairs flat has a large lounge with a media center and comfortable sofa seating, large chef’s kitchen with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal and a huge amount of counter space, dining seating for eight, and two queen bedrooms and a bathroom. Sliding doors in one bedroom and the kitchen lead to the private deck with outdoor-dining seating for 10 or lounge areas where you can enjoy your morning coffee.

Downstairs Flat

The recently fully remodeled lower level flat features a private entrance, fully equipped kitchen perfect for creating breakfast or coffee, bathroom, family room, and one queen bedroom and one double bedroom.

Bedroom Highlights

All bedrooms feature comfortable beds with down comforters and high-quality linens and are quiet and spacious, with bedside tables, reading lamps, and ample storage space in dressers and closets.

Bathroom Highlights

Bathrooms are modern and clean with comfy towels, and a hair dryer in each.

Upstairs Lounge Highlights

After a day’s long adventure on the river and a perfectly grilled dinner, gather your family and friends in the lounge to enjoy movies, sports, or TV shows on the 50-inch High-Definition TV. Open your Netflix or iTunes account to watch thousands of movies and TV shows. The TV is also equipped with a DVD player, over 250 channels via Comcast, and a DVR so you can record your favorite shows while on vacation.

Innside Out Cottage

A romantic cozy cottage-bedroom getaway located down the garden path through the backyard. With a double bed and sink, it is the perfect fifth private bedroom.

Backside Inn Cottage

Located toward the back of the yard, this extra-cozy cottage is a serene and private spot for meditation or a child’s play or nap room.

*Two additional cottages; one is a bedroom and one is a small meditation retreat or child’s play room

Location

Away from it all but close to everything, Outside Inn is less a 5-minute drive from from downtown Guerneville and its great restaurants, shops, and festivals. The Outside Inn is minutes away from more than a hundred wineries and just 25 minutes drive from the spectacular California coast and the marine-life refuge of Salt Rock Beach. Spend a few hours whale watching on the coast or hiking amidst towering redwoods in nearby Armstrong State Park. Or just relax on your private deck while you spend quality quiet time with your friends, family, and yourself.

We love our place. We hope you do too. Please email or call us with any questions, we’d be happy to help.

About Achim Fehlker

Mila and I live in San Francisco with our dog Che. We have been in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years and we absolutely love it, in large part because of our vacation home in the Russian River Valley.

Achim Fehlker purchased this house in 2012

Why Achim Fehlker chose Russian River

We had been visiting the Russian River Valley and Guerneville for many years prior to buying this vacation home and we fell in love with it. The weather, the proximity to river beaches to swim, sun tan, and relax.

The people in this area who are down to earth and love this place as much as we do. When first moving to the Bay Area, we used to go to Napa Valley more, but soon after started to prefer the unique and additional amazing attractions of the Russian River Valley: the redwoods, the rolling hills and vineyards, the proximity to the ocean, and the variability of climates, depending on how far you are from the ocean. That is why we ended up buying a vacation home there.

I am an avid wine collector and still co-own a wine bar. The wineries and wines they produce in the Russian River Valley are amazing! We like Williams-Selyem, Rochioli, and Lynmar Winery in particular.

We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it, largely due to the amazing and private backyard, the 2 cabins in addition to the main house, its proximity to the beach, and tranquility of the neighborhood. Yet the restaurants and shopping of Guerneville is only a 5-minute drive away. You really get the best of both worlds!

Perfect for a group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Outside Inn! The house was very comfortable for our group of 10. The outside space including large seating area and hot tub were a highlight, as well as the large kitchen area and inside fireplace. There was plenty of space for everyone and the home is kept beautifully. Would definitely recommend!

wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our escape from the city for New Year's was wonderful thanks to Achim and the Outside Inn. 10 people and one dog enjoyed the kitchen, the privacy of the rooms and the cabins, and fenced-in backyard. We had some rain and the two common spaces were cozy and warm; we had some sun and the patio and local hikes were delightful. Thanks!

Great place! Will hopefully be back!

  • 4 of 5

The backyard is the highlight of this property. The hot tub was relaxing. The 2 apartments were super comfortable and clean. Will hopefully be back in the warmer months to swim and kayak in the river. The town is also very cute with numerous bars and restaurants. The town is also very gay friendly, which is awesome.

Excellent!

Nicely appointed house with a beautiful yard. Hop, skip and a jump from the river. The downstairs was comfortable but the ceiling was low. We had a great time!

A great get-away at the river!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Outside Inn - really felt like we were part of the river community. We were able to leave our easy-up, chairs and tubes at the river without worrying that they would disappear. The house was comfortable and well stocked. The evenings were hot inside, however, and there were some mosquitoes outside. Our grandson enjoyed the large deck and backyard area. The best part was the easy walk to the river - didn't have to pile everyone in the car!

Situated directly across from Drake's Beach, you’ll find a nicely laid-back sunning & swimming spot along the Russian River. Beach can be reached via a public access path off Northern (a 2 min walk).

Super-easy access to the very finest Russian River Valley wineries + a 5-minute ride to shopping, amazing restaurants and bars in Guerneville - Don't forget Armstrong Woods State Park and the very majestic Sonoma Coast!
