About owner

My wife and I grew up in West Sonoma County.

Why owner chose Sonoma County

This house once belonged to my wife's grandparents who owned the steam mill in the same valley. The surrounding property has been in the family for generations.

What makes this house unique

This is a unique house with a unique history going back to the origins of the Redwood Empire

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Wonderful stay in Sebastopol

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in this house in Sebastopol. We came from the east coast not knowing what to expect in Sonoma County, and found the location perfect for adventuring into the town of Sebastopol, visiting the Barlow, (Crooked Goat Brewing, Woodfour Brewing), had couple nice lunches (HopMonk Tavern, The Gypsy Cafe) and breakfast (A Whole in The Wall - gotta order the Dutch Baby, it's awesome). It was in a semi-private, gated lot with plenty of privacy and beautiful grounds for outdoor adventure. We hired a local photographer (Karenscape Photography) to take our 30th anniversary photos right on the property. The house was clean, comfortable and the sound system with Pandora was an added bonus.

We travelled the coast (Bodega), visited many wineries in Sonoma, a couple in Napa, but we enjoyed Sonoma wineries (people, atmosphere a bit more down-to-earth) much better than Napa; had breakfast at Howard Station in Occidental where we strolled into a few galleries and visited a small, resale shop - very cool - had some nice treasures from the 60's and 70's).

Bring a lunch tote for picnics at the wineries!

We highly recommend!

Serene and Peaceful High End Retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay in this house, you will not only get some much needed rest from the trials and tribulations of the state of the world, but you will participate in a remarkable bit of history. This beautiful, natural, and tastefully wrought home was originally part of the local steam operated redwood logging company and has been loving maintained, updated, and restored by the thoughtful next generation of family owners.

While you are out in the woods, you are only a few miles from interesting restaurants and shops in either direction.

Run don't walk. And once you get there sit, relax, and soak it in.

This house is beyond amazing. My boyfriend and I were looking to get away and have peace and quiet and that is exactly what we found. I found this place last minute and the owner, Joel, was very accommodating and responded quickly. We loved reading the story of the house. It is so beautiful, made out of redwood, with a wraparound porch, comfy leather couches, a huge modern kitchen, and a very comfortable king-size bed. It was so quiet that all we could hear were the wind chimes and the birds. The hot tub for 2 was perfect for us at night, and we ate breakfast on the porch in the mornings. The great thing was that we felt like we were staying in a "rustic" cabin, but it had all the modern amenities you can think of - lighting with different settings that we could change with the push of a button, heated bathroom floor, modern kitchen, surround sound music. I can't say enough about it and I can't wait to go back. The only thing we would change next time is to stay in the house more and go out less. Thank you Joel and family for sharing with us!!

Peaceful secluded and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

A peaceful relaxing getaway home secluded in towering redwoods as you sip coffee from the deck or soak in the hot tub. Plentiful windows bring the outdoors inside, as you cook in Gourmet kitchen. Close driving access to Wine country and the coast.

Snuggle into very comfortable King bed with warm summer days and cool sleeping nights.

Perfect for a couple, with 2nd couple on a hide a bed. 2 1/2 bathrooms enough for privacy. BBQ grill made steak, fish and veggie meals fun.

Fabulous Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I cannot say enough to do this amazing home justice. From the moment we arrived, we felt like special guests. Anything you could possibly want or need was provided. I have been using VRBO since the 90's and I've never been disappointed but this home has by far become my favorite. When we arrived all the windows had been opened to let the fresh air inside. It was such a welcomed site since we had come from the heat of the Central Valley. We loved the beautiful setting and its central location to all the places we were interested in exploring. Our goal was to explore the area but the home was so beautiful and comfortable that we looked forward to coming back to relax each day. We also felt as if we became part of the history of this place that has been so lovingly and tastefully restored. We really appreciated reading about the restoration. Sitting in the hot tub under the stars was fantastic. We hope to return. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place.

My wife and I enjoyed a kids-free weekend escape in a fabulous and peaceful location. Comfortable beds, sweet chirping birds, a fantastic bath tub, a welcoming hot tub, great lighting, and beautiful remodeled interior. Quite comfortable and close to great restaurants (we enjoyed three truly memorable and unique meals in Sebastopol, Forestville, and Occidental respectively. We'd recommend 100 times over, and look forward to returning someday ourselves!
