The Neighborhood

Nick’s Nest is situated in Forestville, CA, approx. 55 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The house overlooks the Russian River with easy access to the water. It is just 12 miles from the fine restaurants and shops of Healdsburg and 10 miles from the quaint vacation town of Guerneville.

Nick’s Nest sits on Westside Road, one of the Russian River’s prized “wine trails.” The charming country road winds through lush forests and breathtaking valleys.

  • I contacted Nick's Nest for a weekend getaway with the girls and he was great at organizing and confirming our stay, including instructions about the home, the keys, directions, and things to do around the area. The home was BEAUTIFUL! Our style is very modern yet cozy and it was completely that. Not to mention it was extremely clean, very tastefully decorated, the kitchen was completely decked out for us, and there was a pleasant bottle of wine to greet us upon arrival. I'm also afraid to post this cause I want it so much to be a secret.. Nick's Nest is awesome. Great value, great home, great owners.

  • I am almost afraid to rate this place for fear it won't be available one the next of many times I will want to rent this place.

    The location is amazing, but even more amazing is the space. Matt has done such a perfect job creating a clean, modern and yet totally inviting space.

    We did one big trip to the grocery store and basically never left the property. We grilled breakfast, lunch and dinner!

    My only question is when will be the next time I can make it back!

  • Nick's Nest is a beautiful, impeccably finished house high above the river in the perfect location. We spent one day wine tasting at the wineries just down the road, and another day on a lovely drive to the nearby Redwood Grove and out to the Coast. Matt was very helpful and provided everything needed for a comfortable stay, plus bonuses like bikes (bring your own helmet) and water toys.

    A few bits of advice:
    -Bring your fishing gear! Dad was jealous of the fisherfolk on the river.
    -Also be aware that there are quite a number of stairs (to get to the front door of the house and especially down to the river) so if someone in your party is not comfortable on stairs they might not be able to fully enjoy the property.

    Thanks Matt!

I'm a general contractor in San Francisco with more than 20 years of experience. My partner and I bought a 1930s log cabin on the Russian River. We spent 2 years completely renovating it. We put a lot of love and care into the place, and I know our guests appreciate all the details.
