When I rented the place, I was worried it was too "fancy." I got that opinion from the pictures. In fact, the Cabernet Cottage is delightfully rustic. True, my wife appreciated the amenities, like a dish washer, that were not available in our usual camping situation, but a lot of the cabin is crude wood and... a cabin.
Our Boxweiller truly appreciated it was dog friendly. We left her a few times with the dog sitter service recommended by the rental service, Elizabeth did a superior job with the dog, leaving me to wonder if the dog will run away from home, back to the Russian River, to find her.
We were there during "dock season." As such, my family fully availed themselves of the dock and kayaks. We also brought a raft capable of handling an 80 pound dog. The Stumptown Brewery was a short row from the cabin and accommodated dogs.
One thing that is not obvious from the pictures. There is a private stairway to the second bedroom. It has a small deck that goes into the laundry room... and bathroom. My kids thoroughly enjoyed that!
Overall, if I had to pick one thing selling this property, it would be the deep bathtub. Or maybe the spectacular view. Or the coziness.
Would I rent again? You bet!
