SHERMAN FOREST - A PRIVATE REDWOOD GETAWAY

Occidental House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A secluded getaway for your enjoyment. You may choose to never leave the house. Sleep late, luxuriating in cool, peace, and quiet. Cook leisurely in a fully equipped kitchen. Have a glass of wine in front of the fireplace. Read a book on the shaded deck, or walk down to the meadow and enjoy the sun all afternoon.

If you do choose to leave, the charming down of Occidental is just down the hill. Nearby Freestone is home of the 'sticky bun' at Wild Flour Bakery, and the incredible day spa, Osmosis. Bodega Bay and the ocean are 5 miles away (take Coleman Valley Road for the famous views). And then there is the glorious Sonoma wine country just 30 minutes away featuring premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Last, but not least, this is a home, not an investment property. I enjoy it as much as you will.

Fully stocked with linens, cookware, wine glasses, and firewood.

Come enjoy soon--

Tom

Guestbook comments from the owner
Your house was enchanting, to say the least. The setting, in the forest, was incredible! Watching the deer from your deck was a thrill for all of us. Thank you so much for letting us share your home!

We will be back at our next earliest opportunity. Your place is impossible to describe in words or pictures. One needs to experience it to believe it. We fell in love! :)

ANOTHER WONDERFUL WEEK IN OCCIDENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My family spent another wonderful week at Sherman Forest. We were there in April of last year. The property is perfect for us. There were no surprises. The owner is a gracious host. He made us all feel welcome. We could not have asked for or found a better location and house for our trip. We will be back.

Eating in and around Occidental is GREAT! Howard's Cafe for breakfast, Barley and Hops Pub for dinner, Union Hotel for Pizza, Rocker Oysterfeller's in Valley Ford and Underwoods in Grayton for dinner. Lots of wineries and other sites to visit.

We will return. Thank you again Tom for being such a grand host.

GORGEOUS HOUSE IN THE REDWOODS

  • 5 of 5
This is an absolutely gorgeous property in the midst of the redwoods. We spent several days in the Sonoma area, a family of 6, and this was a great a basecamp. Beautiful house, great rooms, unbelievable kitchen, deck, etc. Huge redwoods right outside the door and we saw a fox and several deer right from the deck. We travelled to the coast, down to Bodega Bay and other beautiful coastal areas, as well as into wine country down the Russian River, over to Callistoga, Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, and also back into San Francisco for a full day there. It was a large area to explore in a short time period, but we did our best! A couple local highlights included the ride down to Bodega Bay, the Wild Flour bakery, lunch in Occidental at Howards Cafe, Gary Farrell winery.

UPGRADE YOUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
For the same cost as a queen room at the inn in town, we rented this beautiful home in the redwoods! The home, and it is a home, was perfectly maintained and well appointed. I would never hesitate to recommend it to a friend. Considering the cost and what you get, it is an absolute no-brainer decision...

HARD TO BEAT

  • 5 of 5
Our stay exceeded expectations. The property was perfect for our group. Bedrooms and baths were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with all tools needed. The family room made our end of the day relaxing easy. Getting around the area was easy.

The towns of Occidental, Bodega, and Sebastipol are close for good eating and supplies.

Working with Tom was very easy and accommodating. Directions to the property and information regarding the facility were clear and easy to follow.

We will return.

BEAUTIFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This home was beautiful and close to town and close to Ocean Song where my cousin was married. We had such a relaxing weekend at Tom's place. Tom was so easy to work with and was available to answer any questions we had. Thanks again and I hope we can enjoy your property again!
