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.

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.

The place was exactly what we expected; clean, great location, and very charming. We walked in to a welcome packet with recommendations for where to eat and nearby wineries, which was exactly the kind of weekend we were looking for. Irene also left us snacks, water, bubbly natural sodas and a bottle of abut bubbles! Such a nice touch!
My mom and I had such a lovely weekend and for my first Airbnb experience, it was wonderful! It definitely won't be my last.
This light and spacious airbnb is tucked away on a quiet, leafy street that makes it easy to relax. Plus one to the grill and outdoor table which was perfect in the warm summer evenings, the short distance walk to a great breakfast place, and the lovely bottle of wine left by our host.
The home was very neat, clean and had a nice surprise of a bottle of champagne in the frig. The location was great for our trip to Sonoma and Napa. it was short ride to the Pacific and both parts of wine country. The location was quiet and convenient to town. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and hope all our airbnb stays are as nice.
This was a beautiful house, very close to the center of Guerneville. The house is spotlessly clean, bright, and with all the amenities you'd need. Irene had left us a few snacks and treats, so we felt very welcome. There was even fresh coffee!
This was a great place! Clean, quiet, complete. The area was great and accessible. Interesting art. It was a super place to unwind and relax. Irene left us a bottle of bubbly from Korbel, a winery we passed on the way in. She was easily accessible by text and probably. Y phone if we needed her but she left a very thorough manual at the house including local eateries with right on reviews. We all agreed we would stay there, first choice again.
Thanks so much for friendly style.
Such a beautiful place! Close to town yet still very peaceful. We were 4 adults and there was plenty of room for all of us - could easily fit one or two more. Loved having dinner on the deck. The kitchen is well-stocked with the basics, and the sparkling rosé was a very sweet welcome gift. Irene has impeccable taste in art and books, including critical theory and experimental poetry - you won't find the usual John Grisham banalities here!
Beautiful quiet location perfect distance from the beach and main part of guernville. An absolute treat to relax and enjoy.

Located in San Francisco's Mission District & Sonoma Wine Country and I travel frequently! I love my little place in Guerneville, as well as the town itself, and hope you do too.
