The Space

Welcome to Sticks and Stones a completely charming cabin aptly named for its warm and inviting interior made from local logs and stones. The cottage will feel like home the moment you walk through the door!

Sticks and Stones was built in the 1920’s and is newly remodeled. This authentic log cabin offers you an array of new and custom amenities but still retains its quaint cabin flavor. The beautiful kitchen has granite counter tops with copper accents and stained glass windows, while the bathroom offers you a claw foot soaking tub. Just the right amount of new mixed with old.

Sticks and Stones is 2 stories. The entry level offers the custom kitchen, a large but cozy living/dining room area with multiple sky lights, very comfortable seating, a flat screen TV and a huge stone fireplace. Large doors and windows open onto a large wrap around deck, bringing the outside in with birds singing band squirrels scampering through in the trees in your own forest. Inside…Outside…Sameside…. The entry level also has a large bathroom with claw-foot tub.

Downstairs you will find 2 inviting, quiet bedrooms with very comfortable beds, a second bathroom and a sweet reading area. This space, with its stone wall and gas/log fireplace offers you a quiet respite from city life…give yourself permission to sleep-in. Relax, rekindle, rejuvenate in this romantic get-away.

The exterior of Sticks and Stones is as inviting as the interior. As you enter onto the back deck you will find a Hot Tub perfect for 2 people. The custom hot tub sits under towering redwood trees. Relax and enjoy the night time sky under a million stars surrounded by the forest. The wrap around deck has lounging chairs, a gas BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating for dining in the redwoods.

If you are looking for a more active vacation Armstrong Woods (Muir Woods without the crowds), the Russian River (canoeing, kayaking, fishing), The Pacific Ocean (The Stunning Sonoma Coastline), Golf and tennis courts and a multitude of world famous Wineries are just a short jaunt away from Sticks and Stones…. A little something for everyone!

  • I would love to leave a higher review for Sticks and Stones, but unfortunately our experience was marred by a leaky gas heater. Seems tho that it was a crappy fluke.

    The Good: The cottage is adorable, clean and well appointed. Hot tub was ready to go when we arrived around 5pm, and the heat was on upstairs was keeping the place warm. BBQ was ready to go as well. The property is really cute and a great location!!!

    The Bad: The downstairs (where the bedrooms are) is heated by a gas cast iron fireplace, which we were unable to figure out how to turn on. It gets pretty cold at night, which wouldn't have been a concern if it was just us as we could pile on the duvets or use the one little space heater, but we had our 10wk-old baby with us. I called Stace's number and she called back around 90min later, promising to send a local repairman to take a look. He arrived, tried to get it to work and it turns out there was a gas leak! After shutting it down and airing out the house of gas fumes, he left and returned with another space heater from his own house. By the time all of this was sorted out it was approaching 10pm, and the downstairs took another hour to get warmed up, and didn't really get that warm (60-65F). We had a pretty cranky baby to contend with.

    Stace was responsive in dealing with the situation, and offered a night free of charge, which was really great, but someone had been to the property earlier that day to turn everything on and either missed or ignored the leaky heater.

    This was the only problem that we had with Sticks and Stones. While the cottage is really great, it was too big of an issue to ignore given our circumstances. Would definitely recommend with 5 stars once they fix the heater downstairs!
