Think traveling with kids means sacrificing gorgeous, architecturally inspiring accommodations?

Think again. Your kids will feel like woodland creatures—and you’ll feel like a travel-planning wizard—when your family settles into our mid-century modern cabin, tucked into a dense stand of redwoods beside the Russian River in Guerneville. (One ancient redwood has been presiding over our part of the forest for over a thousand years!)

A true mid-century modern gem, Lucky Bend Lookout was architect-designed and constructed in 1966, and is kid-friendly down to the childproofed details. It’s environmentally friendly, too—during a recent remodel, we took care to increase thermal performance by 400 percent (that includes heated floors!) and used only sustainable building materials and native plants. Protecting nature—which is so gorgeously on display here—is a priority for us.

In true mid-century modern tradition, the Lucky Bend Lookout’s open floor plan, elevated treehouse-style deck, enormous windows, and warm redwood walls and ceilings merge indoor and outdoor spaces.

Have you ever vacationed somewhere that’s brimming with natural beauty and felt guilty for just wanting to relax inside with a good book? Here, that’s no dilemma.

Watch ospreys soar among the redwoods from the couch in the living area, decorated with clean lines and whimsical fabrics. Or sauté fresh vegetables from the Guerneville Farmers Market in our fully stocked kitchen as you watch your kids play outside on the deck.

Then, present your handiwork to your hungry family at the sleek dining table—which has room for 10—and watch the Russian River drifting by in the fading light of evening while the adults sip our region’s famous wines. Or you can get even closer to nature and feast at the eight-person outdoor dining table on the spacious deck among the trees.

After dinner, get cozy in the living room and watch the stars reflect their sparkle on the river as you browse Netflix, HuluPlus, or Pandora Radio on our 47-inch flat screen TV. The couch doubles as a pull-out bed.

For the kids, we keep our cabin clear of breakable knickknacks and stocked with all the gear you need. Two Pack ‘n Play, high chair, step stool, potty-chair, toddler bed rail, baby swing, and stroller keep the little ones safe. Plus, we supply a few extra goodies to keep them happy, like a water table, a swing set under the deck, and some inside toys.

One bedroom features a reading nook and a sturdy set of bunk beds for a fun, summer-camp setup, except much comfier—we use memory foam mattresses on all of our beds. And your kids’ imaginations will run wild with the magical redwood grove in view just outside their window.

Two adult bedrooms, with queen-sized beds and mid-century modern details like shag carpeting and low-profile beds, invite you to sink in for the night. A view of the redwoods will greet you in the morning.

Downtown Guerneville is only a mile from the Lucky Bend Lookout. We are located 10 minutes by car from the nearest winery and 15 to 20 minutes from dozens more. There’s even kid-friendly wineries in the area! A sandy beach along the Russian River is a 10-minute walk from the property, or hop in the car and head 20 minutes to the Sonoma Coast to surf, explore tide pools, and spot harbor seals sunning themselves. Lucky Bend Lookout comes with beach chairs, an umbrella, beach toys, a cooler, a picnic basket, and a cruiser bike.

Our home is already a dream for families who love the river life. But this spring, in 2014, we’ve made Lucky Bend Lookout even better by adding a floating dock, along with stairs that lead directly to the river. The water will literally be steps away! As our guest, you’ll also enjoy complimentary use of our two kayaks and paddle boat. The dock is on the water approximately from mid-June to mid-September which is when the seasonal damns are added to the river.

Our calendar fills fast—the time to book your mid-century modern oasis is today!

About Sarah Peabody

Lucky Bend Lookout is owned by two San Francisco families-the Martins and the Peabodys. Sarah and Eric Peabody have two children Raylah and Dean, and Regan and Teresa have a son Bennet. The four of us are from the SF Bay Area and Texas. Eric and Regan are both architects and have been the leaders of the design team for the renovation of the house.

Sarah Peabody purchased this house in 2012

Why Sarah Peabody chose Guerneville

Both families were looking for a place where they could give their children the gift of growing up in nature. When they found this house last summer, Regan said, 'This place is like a unicorn!' It is like no other house in the area with its beautiful location and authentic mid-century modern architecture. We look forward to enjoying the river with our families over the years and we want to share the fun with other families when we cannot be there.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this home we knew it was special. With the river just a few yards away, an open floor plan, the large glass expanse on the south side of the house and the exposed structural system, it all comes together in a perfect harmony. As soon as you arrive you smell the fresh clean air and feel the stress melt away and time seems to slow down a bit. We always return to the city with renewed spirits after visiting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast here! Thanks for hosting us. The house is beautiful! Very memorable trip with lots of giggles and inside jokes!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5
It was a trip never to forget.......The accomodations are perfect for a family. My husband, two children (Ages 7,5) and I traveled here specifically for the Vineman triathlon. I competed and really we just wanted a comfortable place to stay. That is WAS! More than that, my children kayaked, fished off the dock, and swam. If you are a triathlete, parent or just looking for a well equiped NICE place to stay. You got it!

Exactly what we wanted and expected

  • 5 of 5
Lovely little cabin in the woods, perched high above the Russian River among glorious redwoods...this listing was accurately described and had everything we needed. The location was perfectly secluded but also in close proximity to town, restaurants, and Armstrong Woods. The owner was helpful and offered thorough information. We really enjoyed the custom made book on the counter describing the history of the property and region. Our favorite excursions included: morning kayak and paddle boat rides right off the dock up the Russian River, hiking/running Armstrong Woods, zip lining in Occidental with Sonoma Canopy Tours, Surfing and paddle boarding with gear from Bodega Bay Surf Shack, awesome deli sandwiches from Cazadero General Store (with a tour of Willys America vintage vehicles across the street), and incredible meals at Hi Five Korean Diner and Seaside Metal on Main Street in Guerneville. Wish we had extra time to visit Osmosis Spa in/near Occidental and explore more of the area. We enjoyed the local bookstore (Twice Told Books)and Coffee Bazaar on Armstrong Woods Rd, as well as Sonoma Nesting Co for browsing vintage items. To sum up, this house had all we wanted in a neat little quirky town that was fun to visit!

Wonderful family get away!

  • 5 of 5
This home provided a fantastic family-friendly get-away for us. The kayaks and private dock were integral to our enjoyment - we had such a wonderful time relaxing in and around the river. The home was very comfortable and the owners have done a great job maximizing the space. We had four adults and one young child with us and we had plenty of space. It was very well equipped and, as the mother of a young child, I was relieved that the house was child-proofed. We will definitely be back!

Perfect for family staying in Sonoma Co.

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this home for 2 nights while touring Northern California. We were traveling with 4 children and 2 grandparents. This home slept 8 comfortably. The homeowner is VERY helpful. We have rented homes many times from VRBO with good experiences but Sarah went above and beyond. She provided a lot of information on family friendly activities in the area. The home is clean, well appointed, in a beautiful location and no detail has been overlooked. We enjoyed meals on the beautiful deck in the redwoods. With the water access and kayaks, this home is perfect for active families.

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was great and the owner went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. There was no detail left uncovered. Our kids loved the puzzles and games and bubbles that were provided. It was quiet and beautiful, clean and comfortable.

Such a great house, mid century modern meets family place. Perfect location for getting away, but still close enough to play in town.
