The house was so convenient to wineries, the river, and downtown Guerneville! It was close to the action, but relaxing with plenty of space and the beautiful decks. The kitchen was especially well stocked. We would definitely stay again. The third bedroom is definitely for small children only.
The Summerland Cabin was a defining feature to my recent escape to wine country. I stayed with a few old friends to go to a wedding and I am glad we got here early and spent a day on the river with our own private access. We were able to make a fabulous dinner without worry of not having the tools we needed. Hot tub was excellent. There are also these fabulous redwood trees that tower above you that go right through the deck! Definitely a good place to stay.
We loved every minute of staying at Summerland! The house is very comfortable and has everything we needed. The situation above the river is unbeatable - a completely private deck circled by redwoods with views over the river. Glorious evenings eating outside or sitting in the hot tub under the stars. We hope to be back very soon.
The Host was very accommodating with our request and need for a quick booking approval, especially given the fact that this was our first airbnb transaction. Much appreciated! The property description was very accurate. There were no unpleasant surprises on arrival. In fact we were extremely pleased with the property. We appreciated the well documented and easy to understand rules, regulations and procedures. We will book again when we return to the area for cycling. It's an ideal location for easy bike access to all of the classic rides in the area.
Great location right on the Russian River with convenient access to Guerneville and Healdsburg. Comfortable stay that felt like our own place.
We had a great time at Summerland and cannot say enough good things about it. We loved it so much, that we booked an extra night while we were there because we couldn't bear to leave.
The cabin itself is so warm and cozy. It's rustic and inviting, while still having some modern touches. We loved the gas fireplace and mid century modern design. But the best part, were the decks over looking the river with the hot tub! Nothing like waking up to the beauty of the Russian River from the privacy of your own decks.
We also loved how well the house was stocked. It makes a huge difference to know that there's plenty of whatever you might need....paper towels, extra blankets, plenty of kitchen supplies...the list goes on and on.
A couple of things that should probably be mentioned; the house itself is right off River Road. It can be easy to miss. And getting out can be tricky too with the cars whizzing by at a highway speed. From the house, you can hear the traffic from the road. Personally, it didn't bother us at all!! But it may be an issue for people who don't like road noise. Also, this is a highly wooded area, so there is wildlife on the property...you can expect to see bats, rats, otters, and the like.
All in all, we CANNOT wait to come back to Summerland! Such a special place! Thank you, Donald for making such a fantastic space for people to enjoy, relax, and make life long memories in!
