The room includes a mini-fridge, coffee maker, and beach towels. We love hosting people from all backgrounds and walks of life, and will always make you feel welcome!
Guests will have access to the front yard and its redwoods, lavender and rosemary bushes, peach trees, and many other plants, trees, and flowers.
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
We live in the attached house with our dog and cat. We will consider hosting your pet, as long as it's well behaved.
No smoking please.
The private room matched the description and was good for our one-night stay. We appreciated the beers in the fridge, coffee for the morning, and hand-written welcome note from Sarah. The record player and 70s music (rock and blues) is great. The wi-fi worked well. The bed is a futon mattress, so expect it to be firm. It's an older building (don't expect shiny and new), but they've done a nice job designing the space.
I requested to book Sarah's place two days before travelling to the area and Sarah was quick to respond! The room was exactly as described - very clean and comfortable. Great location for travelling around Sonoma County.
We had a lovely stay at Sarah's home. The room was cute, confortable, and clean. The mattress was on the firm-side but it was ok for us.
There was a small fridge in the room to store our food and drinks. We even found two beers inside for us to enjoy! Thanks Sarah.
Beautiful little cottage close to river. Sarah is pleasant to work with, and everything went as planned. We had a great time.
Sarah was nice enough to bring us an airbed at 9 at night. The room is exactly as it is described.
My friend and me enjoyed our stay at Sarah's and Josh's. The place was great. Very clean, with some lovely details like the record player and and in a safe neighborhood. We found some beers in the fridge when we arrived and coffee and cream for the morning. We would definitely recommend.
We loved our stay at Sarah's home! It was very quiet and relaxing and we had everything we needed here. The bed was comfortable and there is plenty of space in the room. The records and books available are entertaining also. We were able to drive a short distance and explore the Armstrong Redwoods, bodega bay, and downtown guerneville. I really appreciated the hospitality and privacy Sarah provided. I would definitely stay here again.
