About this listing
A small and cozy yet modern and well-appointed cabin under full redwood canopy. Perfect for your Russian River or Wine Country visit!
A quiet, comfortable cabin for your Russian River getaway! Deep in the woods, shaded under a beautiful canopy of redwoods, with dappled sunlight throughout most of the day in summer, this is perfect for enjoying the natural beauty that Guerneville has to offer especially from the large deck with a redwood coming right through it. Perfect for coffee and the morning or one of the many local wines in the evening.
1-car driveway space reserved for Cabin guests. Additional 2-car parallel parking space available, shared with owners. Additional parking area just down the road at the intersection with Old Monte Rio Rd. Note several flights of stairs to get to entrance - not handicap accessible. Stairs lead up to two separate entrances to the house - great for couples or parties traveling together but who want to have some extra privacy for coming and going. Stairs also shared with ownerss private dwelling (and occasionally separately rented unit) behind the guest house.
The entrance is off the upstairs deck through french doors. The living room has a double-sized sofa sleeper ( w/ a memory foam mattress) and full-sized couch as well as a cushy chair with ottoman (pillows and blankets for the sofa sleeper are in the ottoman). There are many throw blanks to curl up and get comfy with.
Living room door to the other parts of the house can be closed to keep private from the bathroom shared with downstairs bedroom. Wide-screen TV with digital cable available. Open upstairs layout with large dining area and fully-appointed kitchen.
Downstairs bedroom has a Cal King bed and sitting area placed around the fireplace with ample room to spread out. There are plenty of windows providing natural light and views right out into the canopy of the redwoods. Main house heat (gas fireplace on a thermostat) is in the bedroom. Small outdoor porch right off the bedroom.
Upstairs deck has seating/picnic area with a gorgeous view of the forest. This is a favorite place for morning coffee, bird watching, dinner as well as enjoying one of many of the wines from the area. (I am happy to made recommendations/ reservations for our approved guests)

My partner and I spent three nights at Mark and Robert's lovely cabin. We were welcomed by Robert when we arrived and got a quick tour. Robert was a very warm and welcoming host - we saw him a couple of times during our stay and chatted about restaurants in the area, cycling and homebrewing, but we also had plenty of privacy and felt at home.
The cabin itself is charming and comfortable, and very well cared for. The setting is perfect - we sat on the deck in the mornings and enjoyed total peace and quiet surrounded by redwoods, but we were less than 10 minutes from town. Guerneville is small but has some great food and drink. There's also easy access (along beautiful scenic drives) to Healdsburg, Sonoma Coast and lots of hiking and wineries.
We had a wonderful time, and have already recommended the place to several friends on the west coast.
Robert made us feel so welcome in so many ways. We chose to stay at this cabin for our 1yr anniversary. The night before we were due to arrive he reached out and we had a quick 10min phone call where he gave me some additional info and reminders about how to get to the cabin, etc. When we arrived the cabin lights were on and he also checked to see if we were OK since we were driving at night and about 20min late from when we said we would be there. The cabin was setup to include coffee, cream, wine, home-brew and preserves. It doesn't get more welcoming and comfortable than that!
The cabin itself was beyond clean, organized and clear that Robert and Mark are expert hosts. You can expect a living rooms with the ability to play your music off your iPhone in surround sound, cozy couches with blankets and the feeling that you are in a tree house as you look outside. The kitchen offers every pot and pan you can think of so cooking for yourself is completely possible. The bathroom was lovely with a heater for the colder months and shampoo/soap if you forgot yours (hair dryer too!). The bedroom offers a Cal King bed and additional seating area along with fireplace. There is also a washer and dryer with soap should you need it. Overall- super put together and organized property setup so you can just relax.
My favorite part was how quiet the surroundings are and how nice the neighbors are. You are also so close to wine country and the downtown Guerneville area. Robert was more than willing to help us make reservations or make recommendations for just about everything. We had the chance to meet him in person and he was as kind as can be! My partner and I agreed- we may need to come back before our next anniversary :)
We loved the cozy cabin. It was a quiet refuge in the woods that allowed us to relax and enjoy. The cozy cabin was a great place to decompress and relax.
Robert was wonderful in hosting my group. He met us at the cabin, showed us around and gifted us a bottle of wine. He was very accommodating will be looking forward to staying in the cabin next year!
We ha an amazing time at the cozy cabin in the woods! The cabin is beautiful and tucked away in a wonderfully gorgeous forest setting. Everything that we could possibly need was provided for us and a full kitchen was available for us to cook. I was here to celebrate my birthday with my friends and boyfriend and we had the best time. The road to get to the cabin is narrow and winding, so please drive carefully. We were given a bottle of wine and homemade marmalade which tasted so good! I would definitely stay here again and we are already talking about how soon we can come back. An absolutely unique and beautiful experience.
Robert was great and very welcoming! House was clean and nicely decorated. Everything was so comfortable and we felt right at home. Perfect place to get away and enjoy nature. Highly recommend!
This is the perfect place for a getaway! The cabin is nestled amidst the trees in a magical and quiet spot away from the main road. Robert greeted us and made us feel extremely welcome. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer any questions we had. The interior is clean and updated and has everything you need from shampoo in the shower to fresh ground coffee in the fridge. We felt like home here and slept like babies in the cozy master bedroom. We will definitely be back!
