CABIN GETAWAY, SURROUNDED BY FOREST, RELAXING, OCCIDENTAL CA

Occidental Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a true getaway. We searched the enitre area of the Russian River before we settled on this property. Camp Meeker is unique with its logging history, post San Francisco earth quake. After it was done as a logging camp it was developed as a vacation community. Families have owned properties for multi generations and some became full time residents. It is fun to hear the family histories and tales of days gone by.It is central to the RussianRiver, ocean, Redwoods, wine country, and all of the entertainment, activities, and open countryside of West Sonoma county. The cabin is a great place to leave your daily life behind and truly disconnect. We get some cell coverage, but its more a place to reconnect to each other. We enjoy sharing our space with friends and family, but both agree, it is best with just us two. We chose to not put TV, Wifi, and all of the other distractions of daily life so that it would feel like time away from our daily life. We have shared some of our best meals in our backyard Redwood grove. It's a place to come home to after a busy day and enjoy a GREAT SHOWER EXPERIENCE. and a fantastic night of rest. The entertainment available in West Sonoma county is endless, via festivals, wineries, and farm trails. Where there is wine there is great food. We are pet friendly to responsible and well trained owners of pets. We do not have complete fencing, so your dog can not be left unattended out of doors and must have good indoor manners. We love the children we raised as I am sure you love yours, but our cabin is made as a true getaway..

My husband and I have been together 30 years. We have always understood the importance of getting away on our own to reconnect. When our last child was out of the house, we set out to find this place. We spent two years looking and two years creating. We did all of the work and enjoyed our time there all the while. Our dream is to own a Bed & Breakfast one day. We chose this area because of all of the activities, entertainment, and the weather. The cabin does not get the coastal fog or the winds that come off of the river. There is sun year round. The Friday night market in Occidental, Union Hotel Bar & Restaurant, Barley & Hops Pub, & Howards Cafe have enough to offer in a weekend that you never have to leave Occidental if you don't want to. We love coming to an area that has so much Calif. history and where generations of families have owned vacation properties. We hope you will come and enjoy the cabin for all of the reasons we do and find some of your own, and then come again.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

We chose this area because it is within a close distance of our home for a weekend getaway. The drive in is scenic because of all of the open lands. We were looking to be within minutes of the Ocean, but did not want the coastal fog. We are within 15 min. of warmer weather or cooler weather. It is a unique climate location. The towering Redwoods have the ability to grab your attention and distract you from your daily thinking. The cabin is located off a beautiful stretch of Hwy. and nestled in a quiet vacation community where people come to rest.

We asked our friends and family to help give us a name for the cabin that best described the feeling for them while there. For Play was the name we chose. You will want to leave the woes of daily life and responsibilities behind and play, whatever that means for you. It's a great place to watch the sun move through the trees first thing in the morning, or take a walk to a nearby scenic lookout. We have a picnic pack that we take to the ocean parks, river, or any spot we may come upon. There are many nearby hiking trails that are short in distance or can take you all the way to te ocean. It is a great biking destination for all skill levels and or the motorized cyclist. We like to participate in local community events as much as possible, like the local volunteer Fire Dept. pancake breakfast & BBQ. We do enjoy the community spirit. We enjoy sharing information on local restaurants and activities with guests. We have a window of opportunity that holds local discounts that we are able to come by for our guests.

Beautiful and Relaxing

The cabin is right in the Redwoods...so beautiful and the air smells so good. Easy parking too..which isn't always true in Camp Meeker! Remember...the thermostat for the stove is on the wall..in the sun room. :) The cabin is sunny and very well appointed. The bed is super comfy and the shower experience is awesome.

We went into Occidental...2 miles up the road for a fabulous breakfast at Howards and visited the Osmosis Spa just a few more miles away in Freestone. What a wonderful place that is!! Visited the coast...stopped in Bodega to see the school house from the movie..The Birds and enjoyed the antique shop there next to the little general store.

We hated to leave the cabin...but we had to. Headed to Healdsburg and hit Rodney Strong's tasting room where my sis bought her favorite wine.

Next time I want to eat in Graton...close to Cabin...at Underwood Bar and Grill. We did eat in Occidental for dinner one night at Union Hotel and it was good. Enjoyed a drink at the bar too..fun bartenders. Glad to see they have a memorial to Ranger Rick in frontof the Occidental Market...a great place to buy food.

Thanks Maureen. My husband and I want to come back soon. He's never seen the cabin! There are quite a few steps leading up to the cabin door..so if you have bad knees or trouble walking...might not be for you.

We had a lovely time and the cabin and really enjoyed the peaceful redwood setting. The gas fireplace was very nice and seemed almost like it was wood burning it kept us so warm. Very comfy bed!

This was the perfect spot for our weekend getaway. Quiet and remote, yet with great access to the incredibly charming town and the Friday Farmer's Market! Plus you can hit wineries on the way up...and back. Brian and Maureen have clearly put quite a bit of work into the place. The shower is...as described in other reviews -- awesome. Maureen was great to work with before and after our arrival, as well. I can't think of anything that would've made our stay any better. If you plan to have four people stay, it had best be four people you really, really like as it is quite cozy. But just perfect for a couple's weekend!

Quick Romantic Get away!

Wanted a romantic place that wasn't too far to drive too, but felt like we went away :) Found it in this romantic cabin, equipped with everything we needed. We were transported to the woods, great place to take a walk and just escape it all!. We did the Sonoma Canopy Tour (zip lining) highly recommend it and just down the road from the cabin. Had dinner in Occidental just a hop skip & a jump from the cabin, quaint little town. We'll be back for sure!!

My Perfect Weekend

  • Submitted: Aug 25, 2013

My weekend starts on a Thursday afternoon when I arrange a massage at the cabin with Cindy Fuchs; at www.mellowmates.com or www.mellowmommy.com, wonderful experience, my husband joins me at the Friday night Farmers Market on Main Street. We shop the market for local produce and decide on a plate of Paella, a bottle of local wine that we take back to the cabin and enjoy out back with a fire. Don't forget the ice cream from the Farmers Market, it was a great treat that we finished on Saturday night as we grilled out back and enjoyed our local produce. Sunday morning belongs to Howards for breakfast. One last walk with the dog a quick check of the cabin and the weekend is done. We look forward to the return trip already.

Brian & Maureen

West Sonoma county has so much to offer in entertainment, wine tasting, biking, hiking, or just enjoying the beauty of the nearby Russian River, Bodega Bay, and all of the activities they offer. It is a place to get out and see, but come home at the end of your busy day and get away..
