A quaint 1940's cottage, nestled hillside amongst tall redwood trees, on two thirds of an acre, only a mile from downtown Guerneville.

The Red Door Retreat is a quaint 1940's cottage, nestled hillside amongst tall redwood trees, on two thirds of an acre. Tucked away on a quiet back street, the Red Door Retreat offers the feeling of seclusion, peace and serenity. The cottage sleeps 6 adults, has a spacious living area with wood burning fireplace, and an updated kitchen that opens to a spacious, private back deck for summer barbecues. The front porch faces west and is the perfect place to sip your favorite wine and watch the sunset over the tree tops of the surrounding hills. As if two spacious decks weren't enough, there is a third right off the dining room, which is perfect for that morning cup of coffee. A relaxing soak in the spa after hiking in Armstrong Redwoods Reserve or wine tasting in any of the nearby wineries, is a perfect way to end the day.

The Red Door Retreat is only one mile from downtown Guerneville which offers an array of great restaurants, cafes and bars as well as a weekly farmers market, antique shops and a flea market. This easy 10 minute walk, also takes you past the public river access, community tennis courts and over the ever popular pedestrian bridge.

We've recently updated the furniture and furnishings, to give a warm, charming cohesive cabin experience, which we're sure you'll appreciate and enjoy.

Brett & Marc's home is just as beautiful as the pictures lead you to believe! It was exceptionally peaceful and was just the getaway from the city that we needed.

Brett and Marc have a lovely home! So well decorated and has everything you would need to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. Something to note: the house does not have A/C, however at night you can open windows and get a nice cross breeze. But be aware that there are no screens on the windows or doors so if you have lights on in the house you will have lots of bug company flying in. There were portable fans and a couple ceiling fans as well in the house so that was nice. We had a great time staying here and enjoyed many aspects of the home which was in an ideal location!

My friends and I spend a weekend at Red Door Retreat and had a wonderful time. The furnishings are very comfortable. We had great weather and really enjoyed the outdoor spaces on the property. Brett was great at communicating and made everything about the stay easy.

Brett & Marc's house was gorgeous, big and had everything you could need. The hot tub was pleasant, the lights on the back patio gave us light to have a lovely big dinner outside that we made on the grille. The bedrooms were all comfortable and their communication was impeccable! The best part is, its so close to downtown where the river and my favorite bars are. I would LOVE to come back to their home the next time im in Guernville.

Enjoyed our stay at the house, well located near Guerneville but in a quiet neighborhood. House is cozy, clean and comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We had a wonderful weekend in Guerneville and the Red Door Retreat was a great place to stay. The house is wonderfully designed with plenty of room and amenities to enjoy. Even with 6 people we never felt crowded. Unfortunately, we were not able to use the hot tub on the first night, however the owners quickly found a solution so that we were able to use it the following night. One thing to note, the hot tub is not quite as private as it appears in the photos so we made sure to respect the neighbors by keeping noise down to a minimum. Brett and Marc are great hosts who take a lot of pride in their home so guests should know that moving an item of furniture may cause alarm. Would stay again and recommend to friends and family.
