California Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the house. I went there to celebrate my 30th birthday with my husband and 4 other couples. The house was amazing, so beautiful and so much room. The kitchen was amazing, so much fun to cook and eat together. It was close to all of wine country and within 3 miles of a Redwood State Forest. It had a pool and hot tub and in the garage there was a game room. It was perfect for a large group, with 3 total kitchens and enough beds to sleep 28 people. Just know that some of those sleeping spaces include pull out couches and bunk beds/day beds. I would definitely love to stay again!

Perfect Place with Lots of Natural Light!!

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out perfectly for our preschool staff retreat. The staff enjoyed the warm sunshine coming through the huge living room windows and the view of redwood trees through the dining room windows. The well-maintained landscape and the vegetable gardens made the outdoor areas very inviting. We picked fresh mint from garden to make cucumber and mint water and lettuce to go in our sandwiches. The manager of the house was helpful and provided prompt replies and assistance when I called about one of the showers. We had a great stay and look forward to returning to this lovely home.

Fantastic quiet house with lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a large group of people looking to visit the area. The large number of bedrooms means many people can sleep comfortably and you're just minutes away from Armstrong woods. The pool and game room are great amenities.

Spectacular Russian River Escape!

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning. From the game room where we played our fair share of billiards to the hot tub, numerous sleeping quarters, and overall aesthetic, this property is simply incredible. David and Chuck could not have been more pleasant to work with, and anyone would be lucky to get a chance to spend a few days here.

Perfect place for women's retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year staying at this property for a women's networking retreat. It's spacious and provides plenty of comfy sleeping options. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the addition of a second refrigerator this year was much appreciated for stocking food for 12 people! The location of the house is perfect as well. It's a short drive to Armstrong redwoods, and a short drive to the town of Guerneville as well.

Fully Equipped & Spacious Home with a lovely yard; Great for Groups!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 10 adults and one baby had a lovely stay over a holiday weekend. We appreciated that the kitchen and dining area was fully equipped and had all that we could possibly need to cook and dine with our large group, including 2 dishwashers for easy clean up. The yard was spacious and well suited for hanging outside, with plenty of tables and chairs and areas for lounging (although we didn't do much as it was a cold winter weekend). All in all, it was a great rental property for our needs.

The only thing that we should have paid more attention to was the bedroom layout; the three bedrooms off the main living & dining area are lovely, but the two additional sleeping areas are a bit less desirable- both are through the pantry, off the kitchen, with one being a slightly odd, small room off a tiled "family room," and the other being a loft area above the garage (with no bathroom). These sleeping arrangements might work fine for children or teens, but the 2 couples that were in these locations definitely felt like they were getting a slightly lesser experience compared to the three couples that had "real" bedrooms.

One of the highlights of our stay was how easy it was to book, and how communicative David was prior to our stay. We had all of the information needed to enjoy our visit, and felt that we were in good hands. We appreciated the level of detail provided about the home and arrival information, and how thoughtful the owners were in providing all of the amenities that we'd ever want. Thanks for a lovely rental house experience!
