"Inner Peace" is the place to come to when you are looking for a quiet, meditative space. Although it is located about 2 miles from town, you feel as if you are a million miles away.
There is so much to love about this home. Where to start?
The reclaimed Madrone wood flooring invites nature, at its most striking, into this warm and serene home. Skylights and large windows throughout face into the surrounding and majestic redwood forest. A cozy pellet stove invites you to relax into your getaway. A large, private backyard with a sprawling deck and hot tub completes this transformative sanctuary.
One of our favorite points of Inner Peace is how light, bright and open it is. To be in a redwood forest and strike a balance between forest and sunshine is something rare indeed. Inner Peace perfectly strikes that balance. It is a happy and restorative home.

Enter into a sun-filled and cheery living room with skylights, large forest facing windows, a cozy pellet stove, comfy furnishings and a large flat screen TV.
The kitchen is spacious and well appointed with an adjacent dining area. Large windows in the dining area bring the outdoors in inviting you to be part of the surrounding nature.
The entry level bedroom has a queen bed and windows looking out to the deck and redwoods.
There is also a 1/2 bath and laundry area on the level.
The upstairs offers the Master loft area with more views looking out to the trees, another queen bed and a large private bath with tub.
The deck is expansive with a hot tub and sweet dining area. Grab a book, your favorite beverage and hit the deck. Watch for shooting stars as you relax in the hot tub...THIS is what a vacation feels like!
Let the blue jays and morning doves wake you up and the crickets serenade you to sleep.... welcome home to "Inner Peace".

Interaction with Guests
I will send you a Things to Do doc when you book. I am also live in the area and can guide you to the best food, hiking, wineries, water activities, shopping etc.
Inner Peace is located at the top of the redwoods in the Russian River valley.
Car would be best unless you LOVE walking up very steep hills.
After you book we will send you our paperwork with checkout procedures, Key info and Directions. Generally clean-up after yourselves...To avoid scratching our Madrone flooring Please do not move furniture. ...No Smoking. Please sign and return paperwork.
NO Parties. If you are wanting a Party house this is not for you. We designed our house for mellow gatherings only. Please respect our wishes.
Basically if you make a mess please clean it up. This is a pristine brand new vacation rental.
If you ruin the hot tub water you will be charged a 190.00 clean/drain fee. Cloudy, dirty water constitutes draining. Dillon Beach/Russian River are very water scarce areas and the water is very expensive.
Stace was very helpful and attentive, checking in with us to make sure all was up to snuff. She even spotted us driving around in the dark looking lost (which we were) and called to direct us to the house. The house was clean, quiet and in a beautiful hilltop location. Great experience!
Stace was great and the house was in perfect condition. Everything was very clean and in working order. However, the place was not stocked full of the usual kitchen amenities that we've grown accustomed to in AirBnB rentals. It's not bad, but we weren't prepared i.e., no coffee mugs or napkins, condiments (spices, Oil/Vinegar), chef knives, extra trash bags, napkins etc. Also, the hot tub was great for my husband and I, however, it's not big enough for two couples so be aware if you're renting with another couple.
On a positive note, the bed was SUPER comfortable and the fireplace was a really nice, warming touch. All of the furniture and decor was in good taste. Plus, the trees seen from all of the windows were gorgeous!
I wish you would have called me I would have brought any items needed to make your experience complete. The mugs are in the upper cabinet and extra trash bags were at the bottom of the trash can.
Please call next time so I have a chance to make it right.
Thanks and glad you had a nice stay.
"Inner Peace" is a beautiful vacation home tucked away in the trees, but also close to the main town of Guerneville. We had a relaxing stay. The kitchen has all the appliances you would need. There is no cooking oil, spices (except salt and pepper), so if you plan on cooking, bring along.
As this was a last minute reservation, there was some confusion on which homes were available, and which weren't (it appears the online calendars aren't always up to date--one home we were interested in was showing as available, but per host, was occupied etc). But, this perhaps could have been avoided had we made plans earlier.
We hope to return to Guerneville soon! Thanks, Stace!
Our stay at Inner Peace was just perfect. The house is clean, modern, and very nice. Especially good kitchen and deck, beautiful hot tub, and super comfy couch. Ideal place for a little retreat from SF. My gf and I had an ideal weekend here. Stace was a very responsive, kind, and accommodating host. Will definitely book this place again. Thanks Stace!!!!
We had a great weekend staying at "Inner Peace." It wasn't our first time in Guerneville and it surely won't be our last. The house was great, albeit bigger that we thought. We didn't spend much time in the house, which had everything you'd expect, but we did spend a good deal of time reading in the backyard. When we arrived (late September) there was a great deal of foliage debris covering the backyard which meant we had to start by raking/brooming, but after a short while we could enjoy the hot tub and sun sifting through the branches of the surrounding redwoods. The area is very quiet and has a good balance between privacy and a feeling of community (you can see the neighbors' houses from the backyard, yet lots of trees and bushes separate you.)
The hot tub was set to over 100F and so we contacted the host when we arrived asking if there was a way to make the tub cooler—it was close to 90F outside—and she replied promptly by getting in contact with the company that services the hot tubs and quickly got back to us. Eventually we got the pool's temperature down. All good :)
It took us quite a bit of effort to find our way to the house, as our GPSes (car GPS, Google Maps, etc) all got it wrong. And we had a low-riding small car which almost got stuck on the ramp up to the house because of the fairly extreme angle which also caused the car to scratch against the road. (The car is a factory-default car and not some modified thing.) This was our only not-so-great experience.
All in all, we had a great stay!
