We absolutely loved the house and the river. The view is unbelievable and the house is comfortable and cozy. It is rustic and quaint and feels like a very loved home. The beds are comfortable with nice linens and the kitchen has all the basic necessities. The barbecue works great and the deck is a beautiful place to eat a meal overlooking the river. The water is cool and refreshing and we had a great time canoeing and swimming. Todd was readily available to answer our questions the whole time. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone coming to the area.

We had a wonderful stay despite the heat this past weekend. There is no A/C, but the place cools down very well at night for sleeping. The views from the deck and the bedrooms are amazing. It is rustic, as advertised, but very comfortable. We had great group dinners, rafted the river, and generally enjoyed the area from this perfect location. Todd was very clear in his communication about everything.

The location is beautiful, the deck was to die for and the outdoor shower was a lot of fun! Todd is very prompt in his responses and checking in was easy! One thing that we struggled with, was the walk down to the small beach area. It was too challenging for some so we weren't able to bring things down to the beach because of the steepness of the hill. Overall, it was a fun experience in a very rustic location and the Russian River is always a beautiful spot to be!

This ended up being a perfect weekend, the cabin was much more then I expected, the location on the river was very convenient. I would not hesitate to book this listing again. Thank you Todd for making our weekend amazing.

A group of 10 of us stayed at Todd's cabin for my girlfriend's 30th bday. The cabin is rustic, but very clean, comfortable, and beautiful. It reminded us of "being at camp," which we all loved. We took advantage of the full kitchen and cozy, large living room, which was great for games and catching up by the fire. Most wonderful of all was the relaxing deck and direct river access. This is the perfect place to go to relax with friends and/or family and enjoy the river and natural beauty of the area. We didn't meet Todd, but he was a communicative and generous host. We looked at a lot of cabins on Airbnb before selecting Todd's and we really couldn't have picked a better place. Thank you for sharing your home!

August '15 represents year two that we have spent in Todd's cabin. Although one might think that this is enough, as an endorsement, I must add that we are already planning year three. Our group encompasses ages 7 to 81, and truly, all of us enjoy ourselves. The views, the well-equipped kitchen, the giant table for guests and game playing, and the comfortable rooms that have amazing vistas, are among the many things that make this cabin so very appealing. While the objective is to 'get away' it is an added plus that the cabin has WiFi. The canoe, which is easily accessed at the bottom of the property, is a most crucial benefit! The outdoor shower is a fun plus, too! Todd is a wonderful and responsive host, and is readily available to answer any questions.
