The space
Elements is an exclusive private estate nestled in the magnificent redwoods of Sonoma County. There are four detached structures on the hilly grounds and expansive decking to comfortably accommodate large groups. You'll be located within minutes of the beaches of the Sonoma Coast and the vineyards of Russian River Valley, a short drive to many award-winning wineries, and be amazed by the solitude that surrounds you.

The grounds have been landscaped with indigenous grasses, bushes, and ferns, highlighting the phenomenal native redwood trees on the property, including a magical "runt" redwood tree that's over 500 years old. Pathways and decks wind throughout, offering innumerable walks among ever-changing scenery, including a serene pond with creek, an antique stone masonry fountain, and an enchanting seasonal waterfall to delight and awaken the senses. The entire retreat is professionally lit to a stunning degree, complimenting its allure day and night.

Entertaining family and friends is effortless and everyone can still have their own privacy, while gathering together in the large entertaining areas. All 4 bedrooms, with a total of 3 king and 1 queen beds (one bedroom per room), are furnished with high quality linens and down comforters. There is also 1 queen pull out bed in the living room of the main house, as well as an inflatable mattress that can be used in the yoga studio if required.

Elements is family friendly, complete with pack-and-play, booster seat, and a variety of kids toys and games. The redwoods are a wonderful place to enjoy quality time with family.

The Main House or "Lodge"
This contemporary craftsman structure with an open plan great room, combines a spacious and refined living room, dining room, and kitchen. A reclaimed redwood sliding door leads to the master bedroom with an exceptionally comfortable king bed (many have said that it is the most comfortable bed they've ever slept in), a walk-in closet, and its own en suite bathroom with large soaking tub. The hallway leads to the large guest bathroom, featuring a 3-head spa shower and a walk-out to a Zen-inspired private garden. An office with desk and printer round out the Lodge.

The fully appointed kitchen is centered around a granite island and can accommodate multiple chefs. Appliances include a professional six burner gas Wolf range/oven, microwave drawer, refrigerator/freezer, wine fridge, serving trays, and complete dinner service featuring the sort of tableware you might find in a high-end restaurant. A large corner pantry is stocked with a variety of seasonings and other basics to assist you in cooking up whatever you desire.

The Lodge is replete with fine attention to every detail, from the refectory-style dining table and rustic chairs (seating for 8+), the remote-controlled indoor fireplace, the deep Restoration Hardware leather sofa, Gumps leather chairs, and custom designed decorative Portuguese candle chandelier, which radiates throughout the main living area.

West Terrace and BBQ, or "The Outdoor Living Room"
** Please note that due to fire risks we have temporarily removed the fire pit

The West Terrace, accessed via a wide sliding door from the main house, is the essence of indoor/outdoor living and is an example of what makes this estate so unique. The outdoor kitchen and gardens were crafted from river stone years ago when the property was a summer campsite. It now features a state-of-the-art gas BBQ, sink, lighting, and seasonal herb garden.

It's like an outdoor living room and is a great place to enjoy a warm day or cool evening in the company of friends and family.

The massive outdoor dining table (seating for 14+) was custom made from the center cut of a local redwood tree. It’s the perfect setting for a large family gathering or a romantic retreat.

The Guest House or "Spa House"
This house has its own outdoor terrace and private seating area under a large Japanese Maple tree. Its windows have beautiful garden views as well, but with different vistas, giving those that stay a unique atmosphere and privacy.

The guest house has two bedrooms, one with a king size bed, and one with a queen size bed, each with their own private entrance to the outdoors. Both rooms feature cable-connected HDTVs, and the larger of the two rooms has its own coffee bar. Both rooms connect to a common hallway that leads to the oversized bathroom. The Spa House gets its name from this multi-shower-head bathroom which offers a mini spa experience off a secluded and private patio.

The Pine Cabin
The cabin is everyone’s favorite. The pine-paneled interior is a classic recreation of the traditional summer camp cottage, only this time with its own en suite bathroom, a luxurious king size bed, and a heated outdoor shower. The cabin also features its own seating area, adjoining a large deck with views of the redwoods and gardens.

The Yoga/Exercise Studio
This quaint structure is situated in the quiet of the lower gardens, accessible via a Japanese wood walkway. The deck off the back offers another sitting area with meditative views. The studio offers yoga mats, blocks, adjustable weights, mirrored wall, sound system, outdoor seating, and more.

When you hike from the main compound, pathways become forest trails beckoning further into remote adjoining terrains still on the property. Austin Creek, with its numerous swimming holes and opportunities for river wading, is delightful in summer and winter alike.

The Redwood Hot Tub
At the center of the compound is the hot tub area, featuring a circular jetted hot tub situated in the center of an ancient ring of redwood trees. It’s truly a magical location: A soak in the hot tub at night lets you link with nature and the starlit sky, a wonderful harmonious experience.

The Treehouse Terrace
There is a tranquility and peacefulness to this place that feels unique and special in all our worldly travels. It's one of those things that must be experienced to be appreciated. Perched at the top of the property, this deck offers some of the best views of the entire estate, and has this amazing restorative vortex energy about it - difficult to describe, but many of our guests have agreed they can feel it too. Regardless, the view is worth the visit.

Well Connected
Located throughout the property you'll find all the latest that technology can offer including HDTV’s, a full range of cable programming (On-demand, ESPN, Sports, and more), Blu-ray DVD players, and high speed internet (150 Mbps).

In the main house, you'll find a curved OLED HDTV with an Apple TV, cable TV, as well as free movies on Netflix, On-Demand, and more. Other bedrooms feature HDTVs with cable as well. The whole property is served by a powerful wireless system, with range throughout the grounds including the decks. For added convenience, built-in USB chargers are available in all bedrooms and the office.

A complimentary Level 2 EV charger is available for your use during your stay to charge your electric vehicle.

A Sonos sound system, complete with Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Music, and more, offers music and entertainment in the main house and hot tub area. All of this technology is here to serve your real world reality while you enjoy the calm and escape that this retreat provides.

Where you’ll be

Cazadero, California, United States

Cazadero is an historic town located along Austin Creek in the Russian River area. In the 1800's, it was a luxury hunting lodge for travelers from San Francisco, with daily train service. Today the town is comprised of a fantastic old-time General Store, Hardware Store, Jeep Repair Shop, and a post office.

You're a short drive from quirky Guerneville, the largest town in the area. Here is where you'll find Safeway and numerous foodie restaurants, shopping, and bars. Monte Rio, Jenner, Duncan's Mills, and Sebastopol are also within a short drive away and offer fun activities.

Many guests spend a day floating down the nearby Russian River in summer, wine tasting at the many boutique wineries in the beautiful Russian River Valley (known for its Pinot and Chardonnay), hiking among the redwood giants in the inspiring Armstrong Grove, spending a day at the beach, driving along the beautiful California coast, or simply relaxing on the expansive grounds at Elements.
