About the property

About Paul Hathaway

We are two retired nurses who are privileged to own this lovely get away. We've lived in the Bay Area over 30 years, sharing weekend explorations and meals with family and friends in the midst of the wonderful mix of cultures and physical beauty that is California.

Paul Hathaway purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Paul Hathaway chose Sonoma County

For years we've thrived by enjoying the great outdoors of Northern California - from the parks near our home in Oakland, to the trails of Yosemite, to beach hikes along the Pacific Ocean. In time we settled on looking for our own vacation property in the Guerneville area as it is in the middle of much that we hold dear in life on the West Coast of Paradise. Over the last few years our real estate agent was patient enough to show us dozens of homes but none caught our desires till we saw Springhill Cabin. Here we can have no ambition, sit and read, write, drink wine and cook some great meals. Or we can decide to walk down to the river for a swim, or we can up our ambitions to drive to the ocean and climb a hill to watch the whales. Armstrong Redwood State Park provides great hikes. We can be wine tasting or antiquing in minutes, enjoy an exquisite dinner in unpretentious restaurants....and then head home to Springhill Cabin. How could we not want to have you enjoy this, too.

What makes this cabin unique

This is a Craftsman cabin with redwood paneling, period touches, a comfy reading nook/window seat with views into the trees. There is a hot tub under a Redwood fairy ring. The fully equipped and delightful kitchen rocks with a vintage O'Keefe & Merritt gas stove, basic pantry goods, and bright windows. There is a large gas grill outside the kitchen door. The bathroom has a claw foot tub and towel warmer. The bed has pleasantly surprised many visitors with sleeping difficulties - don't be surprised if you sleep well past your usual hour. Deer frequently visit the property. A large deck provides space for outdoor dining or roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Oh, did we mention the air? It could not be any fresher than here. Convenient accommodations for wine country events, biking and triathlons,and nearby music festivals.

Magical Stay in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful weekend getaway. The cabin is close to the wineries, yet private enough that you feel like you have the neighborhood all to yourself. Love the forest views out of every window, Great kitchen with gas stove that makes amazing food. Romantic time by the fire- very nice! The bathroom is large, with great light, and a claw foot tub. Relax on the deck while looking up at the night sky full of stars. A special shout out to Dove who drove us around to all of the wineries. He was so fun! Had a blast!

A wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a wonderful weekend staying at this cabin! The surrounding woods are like being in a beautiful lush Ireland mountainside and the creek running by the house offers soothing sounds while you sleep.

The house itself is fully equipped with everything you would need to have a great time. We loved the kitchen for cooking! The vintage feel is so charming! The bathroom is wonderful with a to-die-for clawfoot tub. The bed was very cozy and the bedroom area is great and easy to sleep in because its on the darker side.

The house was clean and welcoming and I loved all the decor. The owners have great taste!

Surrounding wineries and food were great. We joined the wine club at korbel after our tasting there. There are a couple local markets for basic groceries so you don't have to trek all the way to guerneville if you want to stay local.

We will most definitely be back again!

Adorable Little Cabin in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5

I took my husband on a surprise relaxing weekend away, and this place was absolutely perfect. The owners were attentive and flexible. The cabin was adorable, and although in a park atmosphere it was surprisingly secluded. We will totally stay here again! Love Love Loved it!

Cozy Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to tell you how immensely perfect this cabin was for my getaway with my sister . There are places in this world that are so secluded and so peaceful that you want to keep them a secret from everyone else so as to not ruin the mystique. But the irony is that you end up sharing a place like this and telling everyone you know so that they can too enjoy it's amazingness. Paul's hospitality is limitless and just beyond comparison as a host.

Absolute Perfection!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a relaxing, rejuvenating and peaceful 3 nights at Paul's Summerhome Park cabin in November. Each and every detail of this beautiful home was perfect! Quiet, comfortable, cozy, beautiful, it was everything and more than we could have desired! We loved cooking in the incredibly well equipped kitchen, relaxing by the fire and soaking in the hot tub. Very private too! Beautiful redwoods surround the wooden deck for good privacy. We can not wait to go back soon! A perfect escape and just want we needed! Great location too, very close to amazing wineries, restaurants, river access and charming towns. Every detail was thought out, games, dvd's, regional information, soft towels, bath salts, tea, so many thoughtful details go such a long way and truly make this a "diamond in the ruff"! We have stayed at many rental properties and this one truly felt like you were in someones "home"!!!!

Perfection, thank you Paul.

My husband and I stayed at this immaculate gem back in March to celebrate our 12th anniversary. Paul and his wife have honestly thought of every last little tiny detail to make you feel right at home. Everything was amazing. We really enjoyed making fires and cooking (quiet and uninterrupted) meals together in the fully stocked kitchen. We also loved watching many of the movies they supply along with playing some of the games. It was the most relaxing trip we've taken together since having four small children. We also enjoyed the hot tub as well and the short drive to the surrounding wineries and restaurants. I would highly recommend this cabin in the woods to anyone looking for a relaxing or romantic time away.
