A fun place for sure. Hosts left fresh flowers, fruit, coffee, creamer, ice cream, and wifi password. What more could you possibly ask for? Short drive (less than 8 miles) to Canopy Tour in Occidental. Short drive to Bodega Bay (less than 20 miles). Short drive to wine country.
This amazing little cottage was so great. We went just for a short weekend away and wish we had been able to stay longer. Erin was an incredible host and gave us great recommendations for restaurants, hikes and some of the best coffee we have ever had. it was really close to lovely sunny spots by the river and to Armstrong Woods Regional Park.
Loved this spot, definitely want to come back again soon.
Erin & Michael's guest house was the perfect getaway!
- The location was perfect - I seriously can't say enough great things about their place! The house was surrounded by nature, but also conveniently located to countless vineyards and just a 15 minute drive to the coast.
- The house itself was cozy and welcoming, complete with a full kitchen and separate bedroom.
- Erin was an extremely gracious host, offering recommendations on local restaurants and activities in the area.
- This was an amazing place to unwind but still be close enough to go wine tasting and explore nature.
We really had the perfect getaway here, and I absolutely recommend staying at Erin & Michael's place!
This place was very cozy and had everything we could ever want. Erin greeted us with a smile and a warm loaf of Banana bread, awesome! I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a good time around the Russian River.
My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at the Russian River Charmer! Erin made coordinating the stay a cinch. She even had delicious freshly-baked cookies awaiting our arrival! We highly recommend the Rickard's and can't wait to stay there again on our next Russian River getaway.
Erin was wonderful, and very hospitable, even leaving out freshly baked banana bread for us! We had a great weekend in the cozy cottage.
Erin was a great host--she greeted us with delicious pumpkin bread fresh from the oven and made us feel at home. The place was clean, comfortable, & cozy. We loved our time there!
michael and erin were wonderful hosts! very clear instructions, they even left us a phenomenal banana bread as a warm welcome in the cold night. their place was absolutely lovely and a terrifically convenient beautiful location.
Lovely place! Enjoyed the stay!
Erin was a wonderful hostess. She provided us accurate directions to her home. When we arrived she had already warmed up the place. It was charming and just big enough for the three of us. She showed us around and left us a bowl of fruit and guidance about a good breakfast restaurant for the morning. She even left bath toys and an animal-themed towel for our toddler. Unfortunately we were only able to spend one night, though we wish we could have stayed longer.
