Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
A great location to lose track of time. Set among 2nd growth redwoods on a hillside with a distant view of the ocean, secluded outdoor hot tub, great sound system that spreads the music through out, and a bedroom that feels like you're sleeping in a treehouse. We went on hikes and explores to Salt Point State Park (Gerstle Cove), Kruse Rhododendron State Preserve. Watched astounding sunsets at Timber Cove. And responsive and thoughtful communication with the owner--Russell rocks!

Even better than it looks

  • 5 of 5
Most vacation listings inflate their amenities, and choose photo angles that exaggerate space and hide flaws, so I was prepared for the Artist's Retreat to be a little rougher around the edges than it looks here. Not so. It was just as cool in reality as in the pictures and description--moreso in some ways--and aside from some inconsequential wear and tear, was totally clean, well-built, and well-maintained.

It is the perfect size for a couple--cozy and luxurious at the same time--and could easily have accommodated our large dog (next time!). Total privacy, too; you can't see or hear the neighbors, even from the deck. The kitchen has every utensil and appliance you could ask for, ample spices, and a very usable layout. The shower is really cool, the hot tub was perfect for a romantic evening soak, and the bedroom upstairs is spacious and attractive, with a comfortable bed.

Most impressive, which we never considered when looking for honeymoon spots, were the lighting and sound systems. The speakers are built into angled boards between the wall and ceiling (which house cool lights as well) on both floors, which ended up really adding to the romance. The lighting is practical, adjustable, and setting-appropriate, with easy-to-find switches; in hindsight, it was details like this that really make sure nothing gets in the way of your vacation weekend.

The only bad part of our experience was a power outage, which according to a local store owner are not uncommon. The Artist's Retreat is fairly well equipped for it, though, with plenty of candles, a battery backup for the wifi (though when that ran out, it was frustrating), and a land line phone upstairs. The owner was very responsive and helpful too.

You could spend the whole weekend at the Retreat without tiring of being there, but there is so much to do and explore in the area, too; several times we simply walked down the hill to the shore, and we also ventured by car up to Salt Point and down to the Russian River.

I would definitely recommend this place for a honeymoon, anniversary, or any romantic escape/adventure. Some tips for first-time visitors:

1) Write down your access code before you leave home (don't count on looking it up on your phone, because there is no cell service there)
2) Bring all the groceries you need, or budget for expensive dining out. Food options nearby are extremely limited (gas too!).
3) Bring headlamps in case of a power outage or an evening stroll.

Excellent location and place!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from three days at the Artists Retreat. Fantastic! It is quietly secluded, nestled in a grove of Redwood trees. The owner has everything taken care of and has outfitted it completely -- from the streaming Pandora appliance for music piped throughout the place, to the bucket of quick-lite charcoal for the grill, complete with gloves and all appliances. Completely private hot tub. Morning fog rolling in through the trees from the ocean. We would love to return.

My only advice is to buy your groceries long before you arrive. While you can eat at Alexanders at the bottom of the hill (meh!) you'll want to make sure you stock up in Guernville or Bodega Bay.

The coast in that area is stunningly beautiful!

Unbelievable property!

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely wonderful! Wake up in the beautiful redwoods with the fog and drink coffee on a beautiful deck. Close to incredible beaches and wineries. In addition, Russell (the owner) provides excellent customer service. We needed something and he was on it immediately.

This was the most relaxing vacation my wife and I have ever had. Highly, highly recommended!

Perfect Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 amazing nights at this amazing place for our honeymoon. We think it should be called 'Romantic Retreat'!

Everything about this location says quality and care. The sound system is easy to use and fills the hideaway with Pandora or your own music. We spent many hours nesting on the comfy chair and a half. The hot tub was perfect as well.

So many thoughtful details have been provided by the owner. Imagine a spa cover swing that easily lifts the cover off the hot tub!!

We ate in. We ate out at the nearby Timber Cove Inn. We explored all around Salt Point State Park. We visited the Ft. Ross winery that is tasty and spectacular.

Recommended for singles, or couples who want to get away from it all in a romantic secluded setting.

We will be back often.

WOW! What a weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about the "Artists Retreat" will leave you saying, "Wow, this is really nice!"

Beautiful hidden gem hidden in Timber cove. Walk through the front door into a couples' oasis. Top notch appliances, beautiful tile throughout, nice touches like the love seat, the shampoo and conditioner and soap ready for you in the bathroom, and charcoal briquets ready for the BBQ!

Completely clean and well maintained, we fell in love with the upstairs bedroom. A king sized bed with a tempurpedic topper! Bliss! Huge windows overlooking the forest, darkens at night to a sky filled with stars. Wake up in the morning, get a hot beverage, and slip into the hot tub to watch the suns rays sift through the trees.

Awesome sound system that is synced to both upstairs and downstairs; although you may want to just hear the quiet! At dusk, head outside to the fire ring, and roast slices of fuji apples on a hot rock, covered in dark chocolate. Delish!

My pup had a great time roaming the property. Sticks and more sticks. He loved the fireplace too.

We will be back!
