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 text message or phone 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, so myself or my girlfriend may be staying in the second unit on the property while you are there or we may not. You are ensured privacy and exclusive access to the front unit.
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.
There is plenty of private parking at the house.
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 best welcome for me was the art on the walls and the books on the shelves. This is clearly a thoughtful space. The neighborhood is perfect just "around the corner" (walking distance, though I drove) from downtown Guerneville. I felt very safe, even while walking my dog in the evenings and early mornings.
This is a great cottage. It is nicely appointed, the fireplace is fantastic, and the deck is really nice. It feels bigger than it is due to all the light. We had a great stay. Irene left us a great bottle of Korbel Brut Rose which we devoured upon arrival :). I was able to bring my 2 dogs, and Irene was very accommodating. The linens were clean and fresh. Very cozy place and it was close enough to Jenner and the coast for us to easily explore. I would definitely stay here again! Great place.
Adorable place super close to town. Very spacious with an awesome faux fireplace heater. We love to cook so having a fully stocked kitchen was great. The bed was comfortable and warm. Leave the doors open to the bathroom and bedroom to keep those rooms warmer (they can get a little chilly). Shower was great! Cute little outside area with a big table and back deck area which was nice for our dogs. Irene is so sweet and left us snacks and sparkling wine and drinks. We mentioned we were vegan and she provided us with oatmeal and vegan peanut butter cups! That is above and beyond in my book! An all around lovely, quiet, spacious place to stay. We would absolutely stay again. Thanks so much for the warm welcome for us and our dogs Irene! We appreciate it so much!
Irene's home was gorgeous! We had a lovely time exploring Guenrville but an even better time relaxing by the cozy fire enjoying with our wine that we'd purchased from nearby wineries. The home is identical to the photographs posted. It has this very nice mixture of an ageing cabin with lots of personality and still modern with its furniture and cleanliness. Irene was helpful and responded to questions I had very quickly. It was a joy staying here.
Irene was very responsive to my questions before I arrived. My best friend and I used the space for a work retreat. The location was convenient to restaurants and a grocery store, but perfect in its privacy from the hub-bub of the city. The house was comfortable and clean and the yard was charming. It was a good value with plenty of space.
I wish I had made time to go taste some wine or do some sightseeing in Sonoma county, but instead we got tons of work done.
This is a wonderful place for a cozy winter getaway! Very close to downtown Guerneville, but still quiet and private. Very clean and well apportioned. Highly recommended.
This was a great Airbnb experience, how all should be! Irene was extremely responsive. The house was extremely clean, and nicely appointed- but still comfortable for children. We thought the space was good and a nice layout for a family of four. The playground just down the street was great for our little boys. Nice quiet neighborhood. Will recommend to friends and stay here again! No issues or complaints whatsoever.

Aimee and Trish also help manage the property when Irene is away.
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.
