About This Listing
Cozy little cabin in Guerneville, a hate free community in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country! Enjoy both natural beauty and culinary decadence in the region named #2 wine destination in the world by Tripadvisor in 2012.
This is a modest, clean, functional home with original art throughout. The open floor plan, gas faux-wood burning stove, and hardwood floors give you both the joy of a country cabin and comfort and convenience of uncluttered, fully furnished space.
If the house is not available, or you need more space, check out our other listing which is right across the street: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4509562
Let me know about any dietary restrictions that you have, I like to leave the kitchen stocked with locally grown and made goodies for your breakfast!
The entire two bedroom, one bathroom home, back Sun deck, and private parking spaces in front of the home.
Interaction with Guests
There is a combination keypad lock, the combo to which I change between guests and send you in advance so that you are able to let yourself in.
I am always available via Air BnB message to answer any questions, as well as help you with any aspect of your stay that you wish. I am sometimes available to check you in personally, upon request.
I split my time between Guerneville and San Francisco, Aimee takes care of the home when I am away and is available to help if problems arise.
There is a second unit on the property in the back, where some nice friends of mine live. You may meet them in passing.
Guerneville is only 15 miles to the coast, and the gorgeous hiking trails of the Sonoma Coast state park and Goat Rock Beach. Armstrong Woods state park which is home to redwood trees over 1,000 years of age is right in Guerneville. There are several Russian River beaches with swimming holes within ten minutes driving from the house.
The town has a thriving and prominent LGBTQ community which is very inclusive of everyone, not just people who are LGBTQ themselves. It makes Guerneville a comfortable and relaxing place to be you, whoever you happen to be. It really is a "hate free community" as our town welcome sign states.
We are very close to the wine trails leading from West Sonoma to Dry Creek and Healdsburg. The house is a beautiful 30 minute drive from two of my favorite tasting rooms, Porter Creek and Iron Horse.
Restaurants in town that we love are the Garden Grill for basic breakfasts or casual BBQ (this is easy 5 min walk from the house) and Boon is consistently delicious. Next to Boon you'll find the Korean-fusion pop-up which makes a great burger and fries! A 30 minute drive down the winding Bohemian highway to the town of Occidental brings you to Howards the absolute best brunch spot around, with delish gluten-free waffles, traditional and locally inspired benedicts, a full menu of healthy juices and smoothies, and more.
Country Dan hosts Karaoke 5 nights a week in town, the crowd at the Triple R is always welcoming and jovial. (website hidden) has his schedule. The famous Rainbow Cattle Company is another very friendly night life environment with a great mix of locals and visitors, pool table, and back patio.
We have a yoga studio, nail salon, and an esoteric new-age learning center in town- what more do you need?!
This home is easy taxi distance to and from town. We recommend Bill's Taxi service.
There is plenty of private parking at the house and in the neighborhood.
Sonoma County Airport (STS) is a 30 minute drive on beautiful country roads to and from Guerneville, there are rental cars available at the airport. The airport is small and efficient, with daily flights on Alaska to LAX and SEA/TAC as well as PDX.

Place was beautiful and quaint and Irene left some champagne for us in the fridge which was super cool. No complaints from us.
Peggy and I had a lovely two night stay in Irene's property, it's in an interesting setting just out of Guerneville. The furnishing and art work are lovely and we had a relaxing stay. We ate out at a really nice Restaurant in town, called 6 on the Main Street, good food and friendly service. Thank you Irene for the bottle of local on our arrival, helped us to relax after a long journey. Eileen and Peggy ( Lake District, UK and Aberdeen Scotland)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Irene's location was beautiful. She left us a few munchies to get our trip started comfortably, her kitchen was well outfitted for easy breakfasts, etc… The beds were comfortable and had warm comforters. The living space was more than enough for my sister and I. We took advantage of the deck out back, and the stove to help us keep warm.
Irene was very easy to communicate with, she had clear expectations and was reachable if needed. Overall, a great place to stay!
