Interaction with Guests
We may be present during your stay, however we prefer to leave guests to themselves so they can come and go as they please. If you have any questions about the area, we are happy to help.
Forestville is a small town, but boasts several excellent restaurants, including Twist, Canetti Roadhouse, Backyard, and the Farmhouse Restaurant. Be sure to check out Nightingale Bakery for some of the best bread in Sonoma County. Some of our favorite local attractions include Russian River, where you can play at the beach or rent a canoe; Armstrong Redwoods and nearby Guerneville; the stunning Sonoma Coast; and Healdsburg's excellent wineries, about 20 minutes away.
We recommend a car for exploring the area.
Other Things to Note

No smoking please.
This place was really easy to check in, and a pretty cool location. The place had its own double door entrance and private bath; it felt like a nice little studio apartment. There was a record player with was a nice touch to the space.
She allowed pets which was really nice when you are traveling with your buddies.
Overall I was really happy with our stay. Only thing I would say is that is smelt a little humid in the space and at night we heard some critters scratching around. But I guess since of its foresty location, it comes with the territory.
The room was just as pictured--very cute and peaceful. The bed was comfortable, and it was really fun listening to a couple of records before I went to sleep. I didn't see Sarah, but arrival and entry were easy. My only concern was that there was no screen on the window, but there didn't seem to be too many bugs or moths, so it didn't wind up being a problem. Also, the room has a bit of a musty smell. Even so, I enjoyed my stay.
We stayed at Sarah's on a stopover before a north CA coast road trip. After a weekend in San Francisco, it was a simple and charming place to regroup. We never met Sarah but did meet her friendly grey cat. The instructions to get into the space were easy and the room was exactly as depicted. We have a family member in the area and when we are back to visit we'd certainly want to stay here again.
Very charming and relaxing space! The room was beautifully decorated, clean and very quiet. The working record player was an added treat! Sarah was a welcoming host and was quick to respond to any questions we had.
We had a lovely and restful stay at Sarah's quiet retreat. Sadly we didn't get to meet Sarah - our schedules didn't line up. But it was easy to check in and get settled. Their home is located in a quiet neighborhood in Sonoma. Surrounded by trees and forest we got a very restful sleep - which we never get in New York City! The bed was comfortable, and the room is very cutely decorated. Great bathroom and privacy. We would absolutely stay there again.
We had a nice stay here. We never saw Sarah, but her welcome instructions were very clear and everything worked out great. The room was clean, comfortable, and very private. For dog owners out there, there was a school across the street where we walked our pup each morning. Good location if you're looking to go wine tasting in the Forestville or Healdsburg areas.
Our stay was very relaxing and quiet. The room is as pictured: bright, colorful and homey. Sarah was responsive to our email inquiries and her check-instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
I live with my husband in gorgeous West Sonoma County, CA. We love camping, hanging out with our dog and cat, international travel and adventure.
