About This Listing
Just an hour from San Francisco is the perfect location for a relaxing getaway. Meandering into the small village of Rio Nido under the tall redwoods is a delight as you enter this Cabin in the Trees. Features two bedrooms one bath and large living room for entertaining.
We had a wonderful weekend stay in the treehouse! Very relaxing, in a charming and comfortable environment with great outdoor space. Highly recommended for a romantic weekend, or to get away for some down time.
Theo's father, Dale, warmly welcomed us upon our arrival. Overall, we really enjoyed the home as well as the adjoining decks. It was decorated in a quirky but nice fashion and the bedrooms in particular were very comfortable. The parking is a bit tricky as mentioned in other posts, however the only real fault we found with the home was that the main living area was a bit dark, even with the lights turned on.
What a wonderful, quirky place!! My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at Theo's place while wine tasting in the Russian River Valley. We loved the location - centrally located for dining (Guerneville/Healdsburg), wine tasting (Sebastopol, Forestville, Healdsburg), and outdoor activities (canoeing, hiking at Armstrong Woods). The house was tucked into the beautiful redwoods just as shown, and reflects its heritage as a long ago California resort destination. The kitchen was perfect for making breakfasts - complete with coffee - and we enjoyed sipping wine on the deck.
Theo was wonderful - quick to respond and very helpful throughout the entire process. The atmosphere of the place is great, and upon arrival the lights were on and music was playing when we walked in, making it very welcoming. One tip - I would recommend arriving during daylight hours, the initial navigation is doable, but could be tricky in the dark.
Treehouse indeed! Though you don't have to climb up a ladder to get into this magical home you will be surrounded by trees and feel as if you are suspended in the forest. Theo's home is truly amazing. I stayed for two nights with my husband and my folks visiting from the East Coast and we all LOVED LOVED LOVED this place! Coordinating with Theo was super easy and the home was well equipped, super clean and absolutely charming in decor. Theo's home makes a great home base for exploring the Russian River area or for taking a short trek back across the freeway to the Calistoga wine country which is what my folks and I did. But ultimately the best way to enjoy Theo's home is to just stay put and enjoy the home and surrounding forest. I hope to return for another stay soon!
Relaxing getaway indeed! My friends and I loved everything about staying here: lovely deck, comfortable beds, cozy fireplace, shelves decorated with charming oddities, full kitchen. Theo was a great, responsive host, and his specific instructions were super helpful. I'd definitely consider this place again for another weekend escape.
Our family enjoyed this charming cabin nestled among the redwoods. Truly, a perfect spot for those looking to unwind and unplug. Even though we felt miles away from the bustle, the house was well equipped, Guerneville offered grocery and restaurant options and our stay was comfortable. We particularly enjoyed meeting the host who was gracious with his time and gave us plenty of local recommendations. If you are looking for a quiet escape or maybe even a romantic getaway, you can't do much better than this.
