Sequoiatude is a perfect blend of seclusion, Sequoias, and quietude. The name for this idyllic home perfectly captures what you will experience among the soaring redwoods of this very private 1 ½ acre creek-side paradise.
Nestled in the Coast Redwoods along Austin Creek, the house is surrounded on two sides with ample tri-level decking perfect to enjoy the morning and afternoon sun, the sights and sounds of the creek, or the barbeque and a bottle of wine. Amble among the ferns and redwoods, watch for otters and bird life in the sparkling waters, spend the afternoon in a hammock gazing into the redwoods, or enjoy an evening around the fire pit in the creek-side Rhododendron garden.
The house features a large family room in knotty pine with vaulted ceilings and soaring windows opening out to the creek and redwoods. Settle in with a good book in front of a cozy wood stove. Or use the executive desk that offers a convenient spot for working vacations or writing retreats. The master bedroom has a king bed, romantic stone fireplace, and a sliding door to the side deck. A cozy sleeping loft sleeps two and has stunning views of the forest and creek. In the modern kitchen you will find marble flooring, granite countertops, large new appliances, and all the amenities for home cooking. The bath features a generously-sized soaker tub and shower with views of majestic 8-foot ferns and redwoods. Other amenities include a carport, additional parking for guests' cars, multiple outdoor seating areas, a well-stocked woodshed, fenced dog run, and laundry and mud room with doggie door to the dog run.
Have a car to recharge? Sequoiatude has a 40-Amp EV Charging Station (Level 2 EVSE) with 24-foot cable. It is not appropriate for a Tesla.
When you're ready to venture out, you are just ten minutes from the restaurants and galleries of historic Duncan's Mills and Jenner, ten minutes west of the Monte Rio Beach on the Russian River, and fifteen minutes from night life of Guerneville, and the majestic Armstrong Redwoods State Park, or a fifteen minute drive to the North Coast beaches along Hwy 1. Historic Bodega Bay, a sightseeing and seafood mecca, is a scenic thirty minute drive from Sequoiatude. Right in the heart of the wine country, we are also just a short drive from some of the best wineries and tasting rooms in the world.

Any damages that exceed $3,000.00 will be charged to the guest directly. The damage waiver plan does not cover replacement of missing items, additional housekeeping charges, intentional damage or gross negligence, or damages resulting from a violation of the rules outlined in the Russian River Vacation Homes guest agreement. To ensure that you are not charged for any damages, you are responsible for reporting any accidental damages to Russian River Vacation Homes in a timely manner.
