About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath with Hot Tub. Walk to the Russian River!

Fall in love with Falling Leaf! We invite you to enjoy the charm of the Russian River Valley in the serenity of this secluded and private two parcel property located across from seasonal Hulbert Creek and just minutes from downtown Guerneville. Watch the falling leaves and enjoy the sounds of nature at our Falling Leaf vacation rental that features a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home and a separate Japanese teahouse. The remodeled house offers a country charm kitchen, modern bathroom, gas fireplace, flat screen TV and other modern amenities. If you desire a more serene and rustic experience, the Japanese Teahouse is a secluded sanctuary. Separate from the main house, this custom built wooden teahouse features a gas fireplace, slate floors, many windows with views in all directions, and easy access to the main home. This structure is designed for relaxing in the plush King bed and watching the trees, falling leaves and shooting stars.

From the deck that overlooks the seasonal creek, you can be soothed by the sights and sounds of nature. For a more private experience, wander to the patio area that backs up to a hill. This area is beautifully landscaped, featuring a wood-burning outdoor fireplace and private hot tub under the stars. Wherever you look, you can watch the falling leaves float to the ground while listening to the relaxing sounds of outdoor garden fountains. Whether you choose to walk to the beach, go wine tasting, play a round of golf at Northwood Golf Course, take a trip to the Sonoma Coast or go for a walk in the Armstrong Wood's redwood forest, it's all within a 15 minute drive.

This is the ideal spot to unwind, a perfect location for a romantic getaway, relaxing family vacation or just as an opportunity to hang out with friends. Whatever you choose, Falling Leaf is a memorable vacation experience.

Falling Leaf features a keyless entry system - enjoy the convenience of an express check-in directly at the home!

Know Before You Book:

Security Deposit vs. Damage Protection:

When you make your reservation, you will automatically be assigned a security deposit, plus a $30 non refundable processing fee.

The alternative to the large deposit and processing fee is the damage protection program, which is $49 and covers up to $3000 in accidental damages. The damage protection program is an insurance policy. The $49 is not refundable, but you’d be covered if you accidentally broke a wine glass…a lamp…or if someone knocked over something major, like the television. There is no processing fee associated with the damage protection program.

If you would prefer the damage protection program, please include a note with your reservation. If you do not include a note, we do contact all guests before charging the security deposit and processing fee in order to confirm your preference.

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours:

The maximum occupancy at Falling Leaf is 6. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Parking:

On-site parking is permitted for a maximum of 3 vehicles; there is room to park 2 cars in front of the house; limited street parking is available on a first-come first served basis. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes:

First bedroom: Queen bed; Second bedroom: Queen bed; Separate Japanese teahouse: King bed

Heat Source:

Office Hours and Booking Information:

Our office is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, excluding major holidays.

After making a booking and confirming their security deposit vs. damage protection preference, guests will be sent arrival instructions and a contract with our terms in detail to sign and return. You will be contacted within 24 hours of making your reservation.

No same-day reservations past 2 pm. It should not happen, but in case the system is allowing you to book for same-day arrival and it is after 2 pm, please reach out to us. If it is after 5 pm, please do not complete your reservation; no one will be available to process your reservation and prepare for your arrival.

About Russian River Vacation Homes

We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company.

Our Story:

In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community.

Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals.

We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Why Russian River Vacation Homes chose Guerneville

Guerneville is also home to the amazing Armstrong Woods, and it's just a quick drive out to the coast! Guerneville is a fun and free spirited town that makes for a great getaway!

Nature in its glory

  • 5 of 5

WE loved it here! The property sits on paradise. We stayed at home cooked our own meals, sat on the porch and just enjoyed nature. It is very close to Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve so we took our furbabies for a nature walk (pet friendly just stay on the paved road). The house (tea house included) was warm and cozy even though the weather dropped at night. It was a great peaceful stay after the hectic city life. Thank You for your hospitality.

A great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great dog friendly place to stay. It is well stocked and presents itself as described. There are several steps which are well lit at night. The back patio is a great place to spend time and the hot tub is a great size. The teahouse is a great place to sleep. The information provided in the binders on the house and places around Guerneville were very helpful. We will definitely visit again.

Great weekend in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

This place was lovely. It felt like we were camping but with the luxury of having beds and a place to cook! Tea house was beautiful and in beginning of April was comfortable temperature-wise. A few more towels would have been good though!

Love the Treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

Great house tucked away in the woods. We had four adult women together for a getaway weekend at the house. We loved the fireplace and hot tub. Easy access to downtown Guernville, Armstrong Redwood forest hike and wineries. The trees surrounding the house make this place truly magical.

This is generally a good thing; calendars and rates are more accurate than they ever have been and are becoming more reliable every day.

If your reservation seems to go through for less than the stated night minimums, or if the rental rates or availability seem too good to be true, be aware that the system may be experiencing an integration issue and your reservation may not be accepted.
