Quarter sawn white oak wide plank flooring beautifully compliments the redwood interior. Skylights provide a bright and inviting interior with beautiful forest and meadow views from every window. The modern kitchen has a Sub Zero built in fridge, Wolf range and oven, dishwasher and microwave all integrated with custom alder cabinets, granite counter tops, and a copper sink. The lighting is accomplished with lutron controls that create many beautiful lighting scenes at the touch of a button. The main bathroom has a big claw foot bath tub, marble floors with in floor heating, and gorgeous views from every window. The master bath has a shower with beautiful forest views and a door that leads onto the deck with a two person hot tub.

8/25/14: The Napa earthquake had no effect on the house. We didn't even have a cup fall over. West Sonoma county was largely unaffected.
My wife and I grew up in West Sonoma County.
This is a unique house with a unique history going back to the origins of the Redwood Empire
I wanted to take this time to thank you and your family in sharing the Redwood home with us. We had a comfortable and very enjoyable stay there. The home is beautiful and we felt all the love, blood, sweat and tears that went into preserving and updating the home. I was sad to leave the area.
We rented this house for a couple of nights for a visiting client, who greatly enjoyed her stay there. She benefitted from walking the grounds around the house as she worked to integrate the time she spent working with us. The owner relied promptly to my questions and concerns, and when I asked if he could reduce the noise from the basement fan so she could have more quiet he was happy to oblige. Beautiful house, well appointed, and very comfortable. Thank you for an easy experience!
Joel is a wonderful host and his place is definitely the best rental spot I've ever stayed in. The house is situated on a beautiful, private lot and the redwood-filled interior features lots of modern amenities. The kitchen is recently renovated and has everything you could want as a cook with top notch Wolf appliances. Living room and bedroom were super comfortable and the hot tub on the back deck was a very welcome addition. I can't recommend this place enough and hope to visit again in the future.
By far the most amazing vacation rental I've ever stayed at. The house is beautiful and has anything you could want--indoor 2 person clawfoot tub (with heated floors!), huge bed, nice sized television, chef's kitchen, wood stove. The hot tub was well situated and it was great to relax in it at night and stare at the stars. The property is very pretty and despite there being 2 other houses on it, we couldn't see them and it felt like we had the whole woods to ourselves. We didn't want to leave. Few notes for renters: no cell service, but internet/wifi was fine. No streaming of videos allowed on the wifi, but the tv/dvd combo was good enough to keep us entertained when we weren't enjoying all the other amenities. No restaurants/grocery stores are walkable, but Sebastopol and Occidental are both very short drives and offer plenty of options.
I brought my sister, to-be SIL and her sister to the home for a girls weekend in Sonoma. We had a fantastic stay and the house was just perfect. Joel was so responsive and prompt in his replies. The home was in terrific shape. Highly recommended for a group of similar size and purpose.
But this place is far from camping. Exquisite quality of furnishings and construction. Every amenity one would need. Everything extremely clean. Convenient central location only 3 miles from Occidental and a short ride to the coast or to the vineyards. Wish we only had more time to rediscover everything the area has to offer. Quiet location behind a gate on a paved private road. Felt very secure and comfortable. I wish I could have stuffed the comforter into my suitcase, but (1) it wouldn't fit and (2) they'd know who took it. We'd stay here again and would recommend it to others. It seems like so much value for the money after spending the previous night in a hotel.
Staying here exceeded my expectations. Nestled among the redwoods this house is private and a quiet place to stay. The views from each window was spectacular. I loved the detailed information for guests on the towns close by and the restaurant recommendations. I'm planning to visit again next year!
The house is in the green valley appellation minutes from several wineries. Minutes from occidental, sebastopol, graton and freestone. Twenty minutes from the russian river at Monte Rio. Many restaurants within minutes. Excellent biking and hiking trails close by.
