About This Listing
Our sweet and cozy studio cottage comfortably fits two and is perfect for a romantic wine country river getaway. It is convenient to all that Guerneville and wine country have to offer but so peaceful and comfortable that you may not want to leave.
Please check the calendar for availability. If it says it is available it is actually available. ;)
We just completed a renovation! The cottage now boats a beautifully remodeled bathroom, hardwood floors and best of all, a wall of glass and a new deck overlooking the vineyard. Additionally, new outdoor lounge furniture on the front and back decks will help you to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting.

Everything went smoothly with check in, with the combination provided. The place was clean comfortable with spectacular views of a vineyard with wooded hills beyond.
Comfortable bed, nice towels, Internet TV, nicely appointed kitchen, gas grill and nice decks front and back. Outdoor spaces were wonderful. Coffee on the back deck in the morning will be missed!
All told a very lovely spot to stay. We were sorry to leave. Comfortable indoors and out.
The Russian river valley is truly all around you in this wooded pastoral neighborhood near river beaches and town.
Rachel and Tim's place was a great place to get away and do some wine tasting. The place was super clean and was definitely taken care of. Such a cute studio with an awesome view of the vineyards in the back. We enjoyed our time here a lot and plan to be back!
Rachel & Tim were great hosts! Very responsive and helpful regarding any questions we had. The place was perfect! It was a beautiful home right on a vineyard. It was also walking distance to the Russian River and close to downtown Guerneville. We will definitely be going back. Thanks for everything!
Place was perfect for a couples getaway. Exactly as described, great renovations.
Rachel & Tim's Vinyard Cottage was very cozy. Very clean and the decor was very cute. The kitchen had all of the basic necessities and we made use of the grill on the deck. Nice neighborhood in a forest setting, very friendly neighbors and a quiet retreat.
We would love to stay here again sometime.
Great location, comfortable space, clean, porch/grill/back deck were fabulous!
This was the perfect little retreat for us. Tim and Rachel had 2 bottles of beer waiting for us and some apples in the fridge ready to kick off a relaxing week. All of the fine details from the soft linens, to the vintage mason drinking cups and the newly redone bathroom were perfect. I appreciated the understated yet vintage modern decor that was lacking in other AirBnB in this area. The deck was the perfect place for us to have a relaxing meal overlooking the vineyard. We wished we had more time to stay but this area is great for a week to relax and explore the less touristy side of wine country.

About the Host, Rachel & Tim
Rachel: I am an avid traveler but always love coming home to SF. It is my goal to try every great SF restaurant and although that might be an undoable task, I will try! I am originally from Sonoma County so I will always have a soft spot for rolling vineyards and the Russian River.
Five things I can't live without: my favorite people, good design of all kinds, Philz coffee, dancing, and travelling adventures.
Tim: I moved to San Francisco from Indiana six years ago and I've never looked back. I love life in the city and escaping to the relaxing cottage in Guerneville. I may look mild-mannered, but someday I'll have a tattoo and drive a motorcycle.
Five things I can't live without: my beautiful wife, Philz coffee (I didn't copy), IU basketball, my brothers, and my imaginary airplane.
