The cottage was cozy and easy to check in. The river beach is just a short walk away and it was very convenient for dining and shopping as well. We mostly hung out in the deck, hot tub, and the beach just across the river from the house. It's a bit slippery at the river but not a big challenge.
We had a wonderful time! The deck is among the redwoods and the river is right below the house, very peaceful. The hot tub and part of the deck is shared with the neighboring cabin. There was plenty of space to spread out, but not complete privacy. Anne was very responsive and resolved a minor issue quickly. We would definitely go back to the Riverlily!
Reached out and was able to confirm details one day prior to arrival. Anne made it quick and easy to accept the rental agreement and I appreciated the detailed instructions along with the suggestions provided.
Though it was relatively difficult to spot the side street, arriving wasn't too tedious overall, and the initial impression of the place was cozy and inviting. The general location is great, and is well positioned between Santa Rosa and other outdoor excavations (Armstrong, etc).
During the stay, my girlfriend and I were generally comfortable. All of the amenities are as listed, and generally suit the city dweller quite well. A few things were unfavorable: the slats on the bed frame shifted during sleep, and one side would slump off of the support beam and down to the floor, leaving one of us more inclined than the other. The wood stove needed a solid cleaning, as ash laden air filled the room when building a fire. The grill on the porch is broken on one side, and gas leaks out of the gas valve, leaving strong, potentially dangerous fumes in the air. Other than these things, the place definitely did the job.
I would rate the overall experience as more than tolerable, and definitely left the place more relaxed than I was coming in. Reflecting on the price, I find that it is on the high side, especially when the closing checklist recommends a fair amount of cleaning.
We had a ladies wine tasting and relaxation getaway weekend, and the cabin was perfect for our needs. If you don't mind snuggling with friends, it fits four people just fine :) The street is very quiet and private and it's also very close to town, so Safeway and Guerneville restaurants are very convenient. Hot tub is shared with the other cabin on the property, but we had it all to ourselves the whole time. Water was hot and there was plenty of room for all of us. A very enjoyable stay.
