The Little Red Hoise was a perfect spot for a family getaway. Beautiful setting in the redwoods but also close to town. Stace made us feel welcome with a bottle of cider and treats. The charming house was comfortable and had everything we needed.
The house is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures are quite accurate. The studio downstairs is really superb. We had a group of 7 and we were very comfortable and felt the place was super spacious and private. We had a blast. The place was also dog friendly so it was awesome.
A hot tub was one of our criteria so disappointed that it didn't work (called for help, couldn't fix). Fireplace would not get warm enough and we had no hot water (had to take cold showers). The WiFi kept going out and house missed basic kitchen and bathroom necessities. When we arrived the keys were wrong and couldn't get into the studio (but the friendly management people rectified it quickly)
For this price and quality of the house I wish we didn't run into these issues. I'd recommend you bring paper towels, dish soap, trash bags, toilet paper. Don't use the fireplace and expect the hot tub may not work.
Ultimately we made the most of the 4 day trip, and still had a great time. We enjoyed the disconnection from the world and the fresh air of the forest. Great place to rejuvenate and host dinner parties with friends.
The hot tub was working before your arrival. someone had just checked out a few hours before. We did drain it because it needed it so it did take the water a bit of time to heat.
The house has Central Heating. the fire is for a great ambiance but the real heat is controlled by a state of the art thermostat on the wall in the living room
I have no idea about the hot water. I am avail 24/7 and never heard a word from you about that or any other concerns. Bummer. I can fix any issue if I know about it.
My wife and our newborn and I hosted my Mom, brother and sister at this comfortable, charming house in the woods. It was perfect for our group, especially since we used the "downstairs" room, which was perfect for a baby. The house has all the trappings of home (minus ESPN), and we were able to cook a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. The house is set among typical Russian River redwoods, which makes it gorgeous. Just don't expect a ton of daylight, but you should be out exploring the area anyway. I highly recommend reading the coffee table books if you're a fan of SF or Guerneville. Thanks for s great stay! Oh, it's also a great house if you're into running. Lots of fun roads and trails to explore.
The house was so cute and extremely clean and comfortable! The location in the redwoods is unbeatable and we loved all the little touches around the house that made it feel very homey. Stace was very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful weekend and would love to rent it again.
Our family stayed at the Little Red House for a weekend and it was superb! We arrived to find the house lit up and music playing - a wonderful welcome to our weekend. The house is exactly as pictured and described. The setting was even more ideal than the pictures can illustrate; beautiful forest of redwoods and away from traffic noise. House is nicely furnished; comfortable beds; and very clean. Stace provided great directions to find the house; along with helpful information on the area.
We had a marvelous time at the Little Red House! It was nicely furnished and had a fully-equipped kitchen, which allowed us to make most of our meals at the house. The grill was a great perk, as was the outdoor dining area, hammock, and hot tub.
Although you can see the neighboring homes and hear the nearby traffic, there was still a feeling of privacy in the redwoods. There was lots of light in the house. The beds were comfortable, and we were able to comfortably fit seven of us in the home.
It's a quick drive into Guerneville, with its grocery store and cute little shops. We also went to the Korbel vineyard and tasting room, which is maybe 15 minutes from the house, and from there on into Healdsburg and Sonoma. We found this to be a great base for exploring wine country.
