The Space

Get away from the stress and hassle of the City. Enjoy great views of Alexander Valley wine country while relaxing under a down comforter in bed, soaking in the claw foot tub, or sipping a glass of wine from the deck. The cabin is 5 minutes from Cloverdale, 10 minutes from Geyserville, 15 minutes from Healdsburg.

In summer, guests can enjoy our 25 yard infinity pool with views of the Alexander Valley. The pool is adjacent to the main house and is not for exclusive use of the cabin guests.

Come and enjoy relaxed, high quality wineries in Anderson Valley, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. We can hook you up with wineries and tasting rooms run by good friends who can provide you with a unique experience including Locals, Meeker, Mercury, and Trione.

If you want to hike or run, there are great trails along the Russian River or around Lake Sonoma. The bike riding is legendary through Dry Creek Valley or up Sulphur Creek for the adventurous.

Eating in Cloverdale is casual and fun at La Hacienda, Ruth McGowan's Brew Pub (excellent artisan beers), the Hamburger Ranch and Pick's (a class drive in with the best bacon cheeseburger in the county), and the Railroad Station (gastropub). Geyserville offers Diavola, with better pizza and Roman-style italian food than Delfina, without the hype and Catelli's -- family style Italian with a celebrity chef connection to Lady Gaga. And Healdsburg is a foodie paradise.

Please note: This cabin is perfect for two adults. We do not allow pets. It is not a child-proof, child-friendly space so we do not allow children as guests.

Larger groups? Ask about our additional capacity including a vintage airstream trailer and more.

  • The place was quite beautiful, and pretty much exactly as advertised. My girlfriend and I went up for a long weekend. The northern Sonoma region is very charming, and the views from the front deck were stunning and serene. Tod and Peter were wonderful and accommodating.

  • Absolutely terrific experience — the guest house and property were gorgeous, and the views were stunning. Tod and Peter were the perfect hosts, gave lots of great recommendations for things to do in the area, and helped us have the perfect relaxing weekend.

  • Tod's Airbnb was supremely amazing. The location is great with many activities in the immediate vicinity. The cabin itself was comfortable: a nice bed, a great deck for reading, a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us and a fabulous bathtub and shower that opened up to the entire valley and vineyards below, yet was somehow intimate and private.

  • We spent a short weekend trip to the wine country at Tod's cabin. The cabin is exactly as advertised. We enjoyed the super comfortable bed and relaxing on the patio in the evenings. The location is perfect for visiting local wineries and is a quiet retreat after running around all day. Another bonus nearby is Lake Sonoma. Great trails around this beautiful area and very few people.

  • What a beautiful place! I greatly enjoyed the stay - from the super comfy bed to the amazing bathroom (and views). The pool is great too. Thanks Tod!

  • My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay! When we arrived, Tod greeted us with olive oil from his trees and we had a delicious white wine in the fridge. We also received some great recommendations for wineries and restaurants in the area. The indoor/outdoor bath/shower was excellent and refreshing.

    On our way out we were backing down the hill and we accidentally took out one of his lights :( :(!! Luckily it was a quick fix and Tod was very nice about it! We would definitely recommend this cabin.

    Thank you!

  • My boyfriend and I had a phenomenal time at Ridgeback Mountain. The property is beautiful, the cabin is stylish and perfect for a couple, and Tod is a very accommodating host. Our weekend couldn't have been better and Tod's recommendations for hiking, dinner and wineries were wonderful! We even became members at the winery Tod provides grapes for from his vineyard. I highly recommend staying here!

  • The cabin is great with such a beautiful view! Tod and Peter were wonderful hosts and I would highly recommend this place to anyone planning a wine country weekend.

  • My husband and I had a great stay at Tod's place! The cottage was lovely and just as described. Tod was a great host: he oriented us to Cloverdale when we arrive and brought us some delicious tangerines from his property. It was an unusually rainy weekend in Sonoma but we were cozy and comfortable in the cottage -- I'd love to come back when the sun is shining and we can really take in the beautiful setting.
