Other Things to Note
I have an indoor/outdoor cat that does not go into the guest room.
Lovely home and lovely host. Valerie was a pleasure to meet and talk with. My husband and I went on a long biking excursion in the area. It was so nice to arrive at Valerie's place. It was exactly what we needed - a comfortable and clean place to have a good night's rest. Her home is exactly what you see in the images. The bed and duvet were warm and comfortable. The bathroom was stocked with essentials, towels, soap, etc. Valerie had coffee, tea, eggs and toast available for breakfast and even shared specially crafted coffee and honey with us. The area is gorgeous and well located for touring in the wine country and Russian River valley. Parking can be tricky, but Valerie saved us a spot right in front of her driveway. Very thoughtful! We'll be back!
Valerie made us feel very welcome and comfortable. She was very open and flexible. We were able to come and go as we pleased and enjoyed a relaxed schedule. We appreciated the breakfast in the morning of coffee, toast, jam, fruit, and biscuits. We loved the balcony off of our bedroom to sit under the redwoods and enjoy the peace and quiet. We had a great stay with Valerie.
Valerie was great. She gave some great local recommendations, seems to really know the area, and was nice to chat with.
The house is also good. We shared a bathroom, so it wasn't super private per se - but the hose is cozy with a nice overall feel to it, and it does look out to the river.
The location is really nice; maybe 5-10 minutes out of Guerneville proper, and right by one of the more popular river "beaches" in the area.
In short: I'd definitely go back next time I'm in the area
Valerie could not have been any more of a good host to her quiet home. A nice experience.
Valerie was a very helpful and kind host who made us feel at home in her lovely riverside house. With a comfy bed and a generous breakfast, this stay left nothing to ask for. The surroundings are beautiful, with the Russian River visible from the deck, and easy access to swimming and canoeing. Warmly recommended.
Valerie is an accommodating host. She provides a comfy, clean bedroom in her home. It was fine for my needs...to be close to an art workshop, up the road in forestville. My only complaint: a little overpriced, given the simplicity and shared bathroom. I paid the 125 dollars for convenience sake, but local friends were a bit surprised that the room cost more than$100.
Valerie's home is a few minutes walk from nice trails in Sonoma's Regional park. Also, close to many vineyards.
