The Space

Austin Creekside Retreat sits on a two-acre forest of towering redwood trees at the end of a ¼ mile private gated road. The property includes 1,000 feet of creek frontage on lazy Austin Creek. The home's architecture is reminiscent of a Japanese country house, with all natural fir and pine finishes. Totaling 1,450 square feet with a ceiling that soars to 16 feet, the house contains authentic antiques of pine and oak.

The deck that wraps two sides of the house is expansive. Inside, there are 2 bedrooms, with Queen and full beds respectively, and a loft with 2 twin beds. There is one bathroom with a tub/shower combination, plus an outside shower. This is truly the place to escape -- while there are 2 TVs with DVD and VCR, there is no cable or internet. Other amenities include gas barbecue, wood burning fireplace and CD player. The site also has a rustic cabin, remaining from the old Girl Scout Camp, where rubber rafts are now stored. Children and well-behaved dogs are very welcome here.

Austin Creekside Retreat is just two miles to the Russian River, five miles to the Monte Rio Beach, three miles to Duncans Mills with restaurants and galleries, and five miles to the Sonoma Coast.

  • This cabin was an absolute dream! Perfect for our 4th of July Get-Away :)

  • The cabin at Austin Creekside is beautiful. The location is stunning, very quiet and surrounded by gorgeous Redwood trees and enormous tree stumps. The living areas of the cabin are very well equipped, with an excellent kitchen full of useful bits and pieces. The bathroom is quite basic, but this doesn't detract from the wonderful space. We very much enjoyed our stay in the area, and my only regret is that we didn't have enough time just to hang out around the cabin, as it's perfectly built for relaxation. A great find! River Homes also helped us out at the very last minute when another booking (with someone else) fell through - we are extremely grateful for this.

  • This house was amazing! The was cozy and comfortable, with a great kitchen and beautiful views of the redwoods all around you. It's very secluded and quiet, but close enough to town where you can go buy food, go hiking or do anything else you'd like. My friends, dog and I had a blast there. I would definitely recommend it and come back!

    The management was super friendly and helpful as well!

  • The Austin Creekside Retreat offered the perfect weekend getaway from San Francisco. The home is surrounded by Sequoias on a very private wooded lot next to Big Austin Creek. The photos don't do it justice- the decor was chosen with care and definitely feels like a home rather than a vacation rental. The house was spacious and well-furnished with plenty of room for 6 in 2 bedrooms and a loft. The jacuzzi on the deck offered a perfect vantage point for stargazing.

    We were within a short drive of restaurants in Guerneville, the quaint shops in Duncan Mills, and the spectacular coastline in Jenner. Overall, I can't recommend Austin Creekside Retreat highly enough, and Russian River Homes made our stay easy and delightful.

  • This creekside retreat was lovely. It was so peaceful and quiet, making it the perfect weekend getaway. The creek right outside of the house and our two year old spent hours throwing rocks there. The kitchen was very well stocked and the main living area was both spacious and cozy. The only glitch in the weekend was a lack of hot water. We told Russian River Vacation Homes about the problem after we left, and they were very responsive. We hadn't realized it, but they would have been happy to send someone to fix the water while we were there. Overall we had a wonderful time!
