About this listing
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.
Pets are not allowed. The cabin is for two adults and is not appropriate for children due to its size and potential hazards, including our two friendly, but rambunctious, 100 lb Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
We stayed at Tod's lovely cabin for two nights. It is modern and tastefully decorated, very well-kept and clean. The outlook from the bath-tube overlooking Alexander Valley is the perfect start to anyone looking to relax and enjoy Cloverdale wine estates and surroundings.
We had a fantastic time at Tod's. The cabin is fantastic. It's small but the open bathroom is great to relax in after a bike ride or hike. We really enjoyed sitting out on the little deck at night looking at the stars. Tod was very welcoming. Oh and the pool, pictures don't do it justice. Would stay again.
We booked the cabin partly because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews -- and we were not disappointed! It's tucked away on a hill overlooking beautiful vineyards, as described. We spent most of the days (and it's hot - late June in Sonoma can be stifling) out and about on Sonoma Lake, wine tasting, at Bodega Bay, etc. and came back to the cabin as it cooled down in the evenings to enjoy the sunset, a book, a game of Splendour, and more wine, of course).
And it's quiet. So quiet.
The hospitality was amazing: a bottle of wine in the fridge (their own label), recommendations on food and wine tasting in Geyserville, Healdsburg and Cloverdale, etc. We ended up going back the Mercury tasting room multiple times to stock up...
And in the mornings, as the fog lifted over Alexander Valley, we found fresh cut fruit and yogurt left for us by Tod.
Tod was very welcoming. Gave us great tips as to where to eat & activities close by. All his tips were spot on! He even provided a morning snack of berries and yogurt... I'd say he went above and beyond!
Tod's luxury cabin is to die for. We experienced beautiful weather and took full advantage of the open air shower. The porch has a beautiful view, a delightful setting to sip some wine. Tod was an incredible host. He left a bottle of white wine in the fridge and placed fresh squeezed grapefruit juice on the deck in the morning. I was very impressed to say the least. My only regret was not using the infinity pool, next time! I would highly recommend the cabin. Perfect for couples. Thanks again Tod!
A wonderful place, in a truly special landscape. Tod and Peter were very welcoming hosts, and made our entire stay very easy! They were responsive, and had great local recommendations! We had a quiet, delightful stay in their cabin and it was an easy drive to Healdsburg and vineyards.
This cute cabin is even better than described. Tod was there to greet us despite the fact we arrived after dark and even left a nice surprise for breakfast one morning! Make time to take a bath in that claw foot tub, and open the floor-to-ceiling glass door-wall to enjoy the country breeze while you soak. Total luxury. Gorgeous property, super quiet, very worth it. Hope to come back soon. Thank you, Tod!
