Occidental Cabin Rental Photos and Description

10 MIN WALK TO OCCIDENTAL! LOG CABIN! PRIVACY-POOL-SPA-SAUNA-STARS LGBT FRIENDLY

The Wine Country Love Nest is a spectacular couple's retreat. LUXURIOUS, PRIVATE, INTIMATE & BEAUTIFUL.

****************(LOOK!)*****************

**PLEASE * READ * OUR * REVIEWS * FIRST**

****************(WOW!)*****************

PLEASE NOTE: ADULTS ONLY. NO GUESTS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 YEARS. We respectfully ask that you don't inquire if you can bring kids! :-) Non-crawling infants are OK.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: MORE THAN 4 ADULTS AT THE CABIN OR ON THE PROPERTY MUST BE CLEARED WITH THE ROBERT AND JEANNE BEFORE THE RENTAL PERIOD STARTS. THE LOVE NEST IS SET UP FOR TWO COUPLES MAXIMUM, AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR PARTIES.

Our motto is: 'Always strive to serve up the most luxurious, relaxing and private experience possible to our guests. Provide them with a visit that they will never forget.' We give 110% of our attention to every detail of preparation for the Love Nest to always exceed your (and our) expectations. The pool, spa, sauna, redwood deck and patio are not shared with anyone. You will have it all to yourselves in complete privacy.

We have resurrected a 60-year-old hand made log cabin and turned it into a very unique and intriguing home. It is all together beautiful, luxurious and intimate.

The Love Nest sleeps 2 Adults in a TEMPUR-PEDIC 'Cashmere' California King bed with UPSCALE linens, and will accommodate 2 more Adult guests in super-comfy twin beds- also with upscale linens- in the tree house- a small, cozy, heated room just 10 steps from the main cabin. Our goal was to retain the charm of the home while COMPLETELY rebuilding every aspect of it's infrastructure.

We installed all new windows, glass doors, appliances, electrical system, plumbing system and a radiant-heated Chinese slate floor-(Floors are heated during Winter). The radiant heating is fired up for your comfort during the Winter. Every room in the cabin has this slate floor, which is of many hues and a fascinating pattern. The gourmet kitchen features new upscale stainless appliances, all granite countertops, and gorgeous blue cabinets that were custom fitted by a local craftsman. You'll also have a nice Wolf stove with 4 burners and a big griddle for those mornings when you want to cook your own breakfast.

The Bathroom features a huge curved walk-in glass block shower built for two. There's a big skylight above, and a copper shower head that emerges from the ceiling. The bath also features a wonderful polished concrete vanity that was hand-made by a local artisan.

You'll have a 7.1 Yamaha/Denon/Klipsch/Velodyne sound system in the living room that is a real treat. There are built-in high-end Klipsch speakers all around the room. You will also enjoy an HD 8' diameter screen and a ceiling-mounted Sony HD projector. The combination of the screen and the sound system creates an absolutely terrific movie or sports viewing experience!

In the bedroom you'll have a wall-mounted HD 55' LED flat screen and a built-in Bose sound system. There is one more HD flat screen in the living room near the fireplace that's perfect to cuddle up in the afternoon on the cozy love seat to watch the fire and some TV. There's also a gorgeous new Yamaha piano if you like to tickle the ivories.

High-speed wireless internet service and complimentary long-distance telephone service within the United States are provided for your unlimited use.

If you like to be super-cozy, you will love the heated slate floors during the Winter. Fireplaces in both the living room and bedroom top it all off. The living room fireplace will be loaded and ready for you to strike a match and have a romantic fire for your first night's stay! And……..firewood is always provided!

You'll have a generous selection of Keurig K Cups and a Keurig coffee maker. When you arrive, you will find some essentials have been supplied- Half and Half in the fridge along with local eggs, milk, some orange juice and frozen pastries to pop in the oven if you like. Or- why not take a walk to nearby Occidental and have breakfast at Howard Station- a historic establishment with great breakfasts.

The outside of the Love Nest really fun, too!

THE SPA- called the 'Serena Bay'- It's BIG. It's a wonderful experience to gaze at the stars while soaking in this special spa. It's filled with spring water from our own spring, and thoroughly cleaned before each couples' stay.

The POOL...… It's GORGEOUS, and kept WARM with solar heat during the Summer. (The pool is closed during cold weather). The adjacent lanai has a bar crafted from an ancient slab of reclaimed redwood that was harvested right off the property. The pool is surrounded by a redwood deck. It's fun to hang out in the expansive open-air 'surf shack' themed lanai by the pool in any kind of weather. There is a stainless gas barbecue that's always ready for grilling the dinner of your choice. On the patio you'll also find a charming fire pit for those starry evenings- making good conversation and s'mores. It is always stocked with firewood for you- just light a match and enjoy!

The outdoor sauna- made of all clear cedar wood, and shaped like a wine barrel. It's located just a few steps outside of the Love Nest's door. It's really a treat!

Sun? Lots of it! The Love Nest is located in a redwood forest, yet you'll enjoy a VERY sunny spot. You can gaze across the valley and you'll see that the Love Nest is actually located up higher than many of the trees in the canyon. Occasionally you can spot a Bald Eagle soaring above, or the Red Tail Hawk mating pair that lives nearby.

If you are an outdoor adventurer you are going to love this place. You will be close to exciting open-air activities. Sonoma Canopy Tours will have you zip-lining over the Redwoods and taking in the very best view of the valley. Be sure to investigate the spectacular sky bridges and the 30 foot spiral staircase along the way. It is a riveting, astounding, and awe-inspiring journey that is sure to leave you with lifelong memories.

Get Ready To Explore And Restore............

If laid back style is more your thing or if you have had enough of an adrenaline rush for one day then it is a good idea to head into town. There you will find fantastic restaurants like the one at the Union Hotel which has unbeatable food and hospitality. If you like brew pubs, stop in at BARLEY AND HOPS for a great selection of beers on tap, live music and EXCELLENT food.There is also plenty of local artwork to check out and several quaint gift shops to explore before wandering back to the Love Nest for a much deserved respite.

We are on the grid, but our 10 KV Solar System provides for most of our electrical needs- We sell excess electricity back to the utility company during the Summer time.

We live nearby on the 6 acre property and are extremely respectful of your privacy. If you need anything, we are a phone call or text away. You won't hear from us unless you ask!

Jeanne and I have been happily married for 30 years. I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Santa Rosa, Jeanne was born in Santa Rosa. Our family has owned the property since the 1950's We have lived in Sonoma County all of our lives. Our interests and hobbies are bicycling, traveling, hiking, kayaking, swimming, appreciating music and the arts, and enjoying the wonderful community in which we live. We always try to make the most of every experience, and are a very happy couple. We hope you can come, stay, and enjoy a visit at our very special Wine Country Love Nest!

Robert and Jeanne purchased this cabin in 1956

Our property was purchased by my grandparents in 1956. I moved onto the property in the 70's to help them get along so they would not have to go into a care facility. I had fallen in love with this cabin when I was a little guy, and my dream was always to own the place and to take care of it. After my grandparents passed away, I purchased the property from the family's estate. It's serene and beautiful. And- The Wine Country Love Nest is a very special couple's retreat.

This special place is not an investment property. We love it and we'll bet that you will love it too!

None of our personal stuff- except for artwork- is in the Love Nest.

Most all of the cabinets, closet, and drawers are yours for your stay! Don't forget to check them all before you have to depart!

A special benefit of the Wine Country Love Nest is it's LOCATION. It is located near Bodega Bay and Northern California's stunning coastline on the Pacific Ocean- (20 minutes away) and a very short drive to some of California's finest wineries. There are wineries only 20 minutes away! There are vineyards within walking distance in our neighborhood!

You can bicycle to the charming little hamlet of Occidental in 5 minutes.

The close proximity to Occidental and it's wonderful restaurants, pubs and shops make for a very relaxing vacation. You don't have to go far to eat, shop, go wine tasting, go antiquing, ride, kayak or hike. The Wine Country Love Nest is centrally located to all that Northern California has to offer. You will love it!

FOUNTAINS AND FROGS! WONDERFUL, LUXURIOUS SETTING.

  • 5 of 5
Fountains and frogs. Roses and hummingbirds. The redwoods. S'mores and the fire pit. And even a piano. These are just a few of the things that made our stay a fabulous one! We could barely bring ourselves to leave the property. The pool/sauna/hot tub were perfect. We hosted friends for cocktails and dinner. And they didn't want to leave either! Comfort and luxury. Only 25 minutes to the coast and beautiful wide sandy (dog friendly) beaches. We have always loved the Occidental area for its rural environment (away from, yet close enough to, the hustle and bustle of the main Sonoma routes). We've now found a "go to" place for a quick trip up the coast from Santa Cruz. Thanks Robert and Jeanne for creating this incredible spot!

Robert and Jeanne couldn't have been more hospitable and respectful of our privacy.

EXCELLENT WINE COUNTRY ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
I am very picky about the places that I stay, and I cannot think of one negative thing about this wonderful retreat. Private pool, sauna, and hot tub and nature all around. Close to the little town of Occidental and in a scenic location. The owners are warm and inviting and provide everything you need for a relaxing private stay. It has top notch amenities, and the bed is very comfortable. I will definitely stay here on my next visit to the wine region.

OUTSTANDING GET-A-WAY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Jeanne and Robert have thought of everything for their place and I am happy they share it with everyone to enjoy. All the amenities are top notch, the grounds are fantastic, and the attention to little detail makes the place even more spectacular than words can describe. My wife and I used the cabin as a retreat from our day trips through wine country, redwood forests, and a visit to the coast. Our mornings and nights at the cabin were peaceful, relaxing, but still well connected to the world when it was necessary. I suspect days lounging by the pool are equally as peaceful, we will have try that on a future visit!

INCREDIBLE WEEK OF RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
Robert and Jeanne have created a little piece of heaven just outside of town. If you are looking for an incredibly relaxing getaway, I can' t think of a much better place to achieve that than here. The house is VERY well appointed with all high end amenities. Everything you could ask for is provided. We even offered to pay a little extra and they opened the pool early for us and heated it up to 90 degrees for the duration of our stay. Well worth the extra money we paid for that. We hated having to leave the property and come back to reality. Thanks again to Robert and Jeanne for providing such a wonderful place to unwind.

Located just a very short drive to all that Sonoma County has to offer. The quaint hamlet of Occidental is rich in things to do and see. Great restaurants, fun boutique shopping, Farmer's Market, Organic market, and the world-famous Union Hotel. And- it is a road-biker's paradise! there is a world class ropes course just down the road (3 miles).
