Description

The space

This little a-frame cabin would make a productive retreat for an artist, writer, or musician, or a romantic getaway. Surrounded by redwoods on a private road in Cazadero, my cabin is an hour and forty-five minutes north of San Francisco: a roughly ten-minute drive to the beautiful Sonoma Coast, and just fifteen minutes to Guerneville and wine country in the other direction. Head west and you’ll hit the charming town of Duncans Mills; go east to Monte Rio, and catch a movie at the historic Rio Theater.

The full bed sleeps one or two comfortably. No TV or microwave; yes record player, wood-burning stove, equipped kitchen, and lots of cookbooks. The backyard is sunny and sloping with a view. There’s a table and bench on the deck for al fresco dining. And there’s speedy wireless Internet, too.

Other things to note

The house is small, so please keep your party size to one or two.

The bed is a cozy full size, and the mattress is memory foam. If you prefer a luxuriously large and super firm bed, this may not be the place for you!

The house has been lovingly restored, and continues to be. But it's a work in progress, so please don't expect sleekness and perfection: the fridge lives on the deck and on the smaller side (4.6 cubic feet to be exact), and there's no freezer; the bathroom light is a lamp you have to turn on. If you’re the sort of person who might find these quirks endearing, this might just be the place for you. If all that sounds uncomfortable and horrible, it might, unfortunately, not. Any questions, please ask me!

** ATTN GUESTS BOOKING FOR THE WINTER (JAN & FEB) ** The cabin is heated by wood stove, two small space heaters, and lots of blankets. If you prefer central heating, please search out other accommodations on Airbnb. This is not the place for you!

And a word of warning about the weather: Please note that Cazadero is the 2nd wettest city in California! In the woods that means possible power outages, and in an A-frame, that means the rain can be quite loud against the roof. Travel insurance is highly recommended; last-minute cancellations due to weather will not be accepted.
