Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Bird's nest is a bit like a bird's nest--nestled up in the redwoods on a hill. It was very comfortable and cozy, with a wonderfully stocked kitchen, a Tv for video watching, beautiful porches perched up in the redwoods. It is a good value with the separate bedroom suite upstairs, and the bedroom and bath downstairs. All in all a lovely experience.

  • Lovely house. We would have loved to stay a few more days. The view from the living room really made me feeling like I was in a bird's nest. The location is almost perfect - close enough to town and the vineyards but far enough that it felt like a getaway.

  • We had a great time at the bird's nest. The location is beautiful, it's in the middle of the forest and surrounded by redwoods. The kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking.

  • We rented the Bird's Nest for a two day retreat to Sonoma with my parents. We all had a wonderful time, and the Nest was perfect for what we were looking for. We hope that we can return, and we would recommend this to friends and family. A perfect place for 4 people to stay!

  • I highly recommend this house. There were snacks and a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we arrived. You could spend your entire trip just hanging out on the two decks. The kitchen has all the tools you need to create a feast.

    We had a great time in Occidental and the location is great starting point for the Russian River wineries or the Sonoma Coast.

  • Our stay at the Bird's Nest was really lovely. The home is spacious and in the middle of the redwoods so very peaceful. They have decorated it nicely and it was so nice spending time there. We were close to the ocean and also to wineries. My parents and I really enjoyed our weekend. the only downside was that the internet didn't work, which we would have liked to know ahead of time. Thanks!

  • Great home, Very Cozy and Warm. We enjoyed the surrounding Redwoods and also broke up our days with visits to shops in Occidental and Sebastapol. We loved our stay!

This property has been in Anne's family since 1911. It was originally purchased by two of her great Aunts who lived in San Francisco and would come up for holidays on the train. It was completely remodeled in 2011.
