Fall in love with Falling Leaf! We invite you to enjoy the charm of the Russian River Valley in the serenity of this secluded and private two parcel property located across from seasonal Hulbert, Creek and just minutes from downtown Guerneville.

The space

Watch the falling leaves and enjoy the sounds of nature at our Falling Leaf vacation rental that features a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home and a separate Japanese tea house. The remodeled house offers a country charm kitchen, modern bathroom, gas fireplace, flat screen TV and other modern amenities. If you desire a more serene and rustic experience, the Japanese Teahouse is a secluded sanctuary. Separate from the main house, this custom built wooden teahouse features a gas fireplace, slate floors, many windows with views in all directions, and easy access to the main home. This structure is designed for relaxing in the plush King bed and watching the trees, falling leaves and shooting stars.

From the deck that overlooks the seasonal creek, you can be soothed by the sights and sounds of nature. For a more private experience, wander to the patio area that backs up to a hill. This area is beautifully landscaped, featuring a wood-burning outdoor fireplace and private hot tub under the stars. Wherever you look, you can watch the falling leaves float to the ground while listening to the relaxing sounds of outdoor garden fountains.

This is the ideal spot to unwind, a perfect location for a romantic getaway, relaxing family vacation or just as an opportunity to hang out with friends. Whatever you choose, Falling Leaf is a memorable vacation experience.

So much better in person! Nothing beats waking up surrounded my the trees and falling leaves. The kitchen is nicely stocked with basics and the bathroom worked well for our party size. It was great having patio space which most of us utilized everyday. And the jacuzzi was an added bonus as well. Highly recommend and would return!

I wish every host was as responsive, accommodating, and nice as the wonderful folks at River Homes. That said, this particular property was overpriced when considering similarly priced homes in the area, actual property location, space, uniqueness, amenities, and relatively minor issues/annoyances (part 1): PART 1: =( - I only book homes in Russian River that have hot-tubs / jacuzzis and unfortunately, during our stay at Falling Leaf we could only use the hot-tub (2) of the (4) days due to the colder water temperature. - Like previous reviewers, we spent more time washing towels than we anticipated (1-2x day) - and that was even with us reusing and/or not showering each day (don't judge it's meant to be rustic) =) This probably wouldn't have been as big of an issue if the washer could fit more than 1.5 towels. Part 2: =) - River Homes was both responsive and accommodating when it came to check-in/out flexibility and responding immediately over a Holiday weekend. It was the first time for me where a host actually cared about our experience. - The Tea Room (main picture) was unique, cozy, and intimate. How cool would it be to show future children where it all began... - The Kitchen was stocked with evert cooking utensil, tool, and obscure item you would ever need. For being in "the woods" we had some pretty fancy meals. This may be a new property so might just need to iron out some things to help ensure the value is more is aligned with cost. It was a wonderful weekend and while I wouldn't repeat a stay here, my future searches on AirBnB will include "River Homes" as a keyword.

We had a great time during our stay. We just felt that the home was overpriced for the area and they need to stock the house with towels, wash clothes, and sheets. Every other Air Bnb we have stayed in has had plenty of linens for everyone. I don't like doing laundry when I am on vacation.

Response from River Homes:
Hi, Kelly! So glad that you enjoyed the house! :) We have found that the pricing is pretty comparable for the area, and it also falls in line with the pricing of our other homes that we manage. (over 50) The beds at Falling Leaf are ready with sheets and so forth at check in, and we supply 6 sets of towels, one for each person. We will double check the linen inventory at the home, just in case inventory has fallen below that. Thanks so much for your feedback! Warmly, Kate

The home, and surroundings were lovely. We loved how "in the woods" it felt, especially at night. The home lent itself to comfort, and general relaxing...and we found ourselves in the hot tub in the evenings without a care in the world.

Fantastic house :) Beautiful little spot, and the service from Russian River Rental Homes was awesome. They were so responsive and even drove out to help us get back into the teahouse (we locked ourselves out - oops!) We loved our stay and would highly recommend it.
