Quiet, Cozy, Romantic Artists Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights for our 20th Anniversary at this property and could not be more pleased. It was awesome!! By far one of the best places we have ever stayed.

Everything was clean and in perfect working order. Quiet forest setting with super cool hot tub view from the back deck. The cottage is just the right size for two people. It has all modern appliances, comfortable king size bed, wifi, Dish TV in bedroom with blue-ray player and a whole house stereo that accepts iPod or tablet input. It is definitely designed to be a romantic get away for couples and it delivers just that. Can't say enough good things about our stay. Russell (the owner) was awesome and the complimentary bottle of champagne was a very classy touch! We will be back for sure!

Do yourself a favor and book a stay at the Artists Retreat, you will be glad you did.

Rustic Craftsman Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

We loved this small cabin. It was perfect for 2 people and a dog. We would stay again.

The Artist Retreat is true to its name. It is very remote with no cellular service but there was dish TV and dsl internet. You walk into a very small round room with a beautiful deck that is surrounded by mature trees with tons of birds. There are lots of windows and a sliding door to the deck that capture the feeling of outdoor living space. The kitchen was well laid out for simple cooking and dining. There is a nice shower with windows into the woods. The room is very rustic with exposed beams, metal hardware, stone hearth, and clay floor tiles. There is also a hot tub on the deck that was gated so we did not have to worry about dog. We enjoyed the satellite radio/speaker system. There is dish TV in the bedroom. The décor is a bit dated but very well maintained and super clean. The location is ideal for going to the beach/hiking with dogs. It's in between Jenner and Sea Ranch and just a short drive off of Highway 1. The closest grocery store is about 20 miles away (by beautiful dog-friendly Gualala Regional Park), there are a few campground stores within a few miles, and there is a burger place about 4 miles away.

Perfect location to get away from it all for a bit

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Super cool little area neck of the woods with easy access to good hiking and great views. Easy to work with the owner and will definitely be back. Thanks so much Russell!

Quiet retreat far from the maddening crowds

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we needed. A quiet retreat to relax and rejuvenate.

The home is immediately cozy upon arrival. All we needed to do was store the food in the fridge and open a bottle of bubbly!

The home is private and secluded. Our dogs love the home and accepted the "Stay off the furniture " rules.

The weber BBQ is a little worse for wear, never the less, this is a great place for 2 people to reconnect.

Can't wait to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem was exactly what we were hoping for and boy did it deliver!! Our lives are busy, stressful and at times overwhelming. Wonderful place to decompress. Quiet, comfortable and everything we needed for an absolutely wonderful weekend. The bed was super comfortable and the hot tub was the icing on the cake. We are soooo looking forward to our next trip back.

Super clean, very well maintained and the pre-arrival instructions contained everything we needed to know to make the most of our stay.

Utopia

  • 5 of 5

As close to heaven as you can get. The beauty of the house and property is unmatched. For those who value serenity and seclusion, this paradise is for you. This latest visit was my second stay and I can't wait to go back a third time. Treat yourself, you won't be disappointed.
