Ten minutes to the Russian River or wine tasting and 20 minutes from the coast.
Michael and Erin were very welcoming, and their cottage is located in a great location within 5 minutes drive of Guerneville. Great location, only 15 minutes to the coast, and wineries in the Russian Valley.
This location was just as it was described, we had a lovely overnight stay in Russian River. Erin was great at communicating in the days before our stay and gave us easy to follow directions. Erin greeted us upon arrival and showed us the space which was very clean and well equipped with anything you'd need. My boyfriend and I used the kitchen which was a great break from eating out. The location is a little secluded but close to nearby restaurants and other small towns to explore. Would recommend this cozy apartment for anyone looking for a more homey overnight stay. Much thanks to Erin and Michael for making our trip to Russian River even better!
Erin & Michael were warm and welcoming. We had a quick getaway and appreciated the solitude and privacy of the separate quarters located on their property.
Enjoy Michael's serene landscaping (and ask about the Bonsai!).
This was a lovely place - and felt more spacious than I had thought from the photos. Hosts had provided milk, butter and fruit, which was a nice touch. Well equipped kitchen, cute cat (outside!), beautiful surroundings. Erin was very friendly and welcoming and came out to say hi when we arrived.
Make sure you get directions as your phone won't help you with this, and follow the instructions very carefully if coming back in the dark as it's not so easy to find the turn then!
I would happily stay here again and recommend it to friends
This was a fantastic place to stay. Michael and Erin were wonderful hosts, providing warm greetings, valuable advice, and all the amenities as promised. The house was great, comfortable, and well appointed, including bath toys and child friendly soaps left out especially for our little one. I hope to be back again soon!
Me and my husband spent a night at Michael and Erin cottage. We had the most amazing experience!
Michael and Erin made us feel really welcomed,comfortable and created the perfect situation for us. They are really kind and helpful, and the place is in really great conditions.
The house is so warm and cozy, full of everything you would love to have around on a relaxing holiday situation. Erin was so kind and generous with us, she explained a lot of interesting infos about the area and gave us tons of really useful tips.
The location of the house is stunning: surrounded by redwood trees, beautiful birds and amazing houses. Also very convenient walkable distance from the beautiful golf course, perfect for a coffe in the morning or a dinner in the evening. Guerneville is also really close by, and is full of great views all around. We definitely would love to come back!
Lovely, warm, and very homely environment. Michael was helped to guide me through the woods to his home, and came out to say hello and welcome me. He suggested a visit to Armstrong State Park, which I followed upon the next morning delightfully. Overall, beautiful and refreshing.
We love hosting through Airbnb. We have met people and made friends from all over the world. A number of people have stayed with us multiple times. We love entertaining, gardening, running, cooking, reading, singing and playing musical instruments and bonsai.
People tell us we are very warm and accommodating hosts. We like to make people feel welcome and comfortable and offer as much assistance as they need. Guests also often tell us what a beautiful spot we live in.
Our motto would probably be, "never meet a stranger."
