The Space

Located on a large wooded lot in Monte Rio, three blocks from the Russian River, this beautifully crafted redwood house has been called an artistic masterpiece by many who have visited. Willowhaven (we named it this because of the willows on the property and it's location on Willow Road) is the perfect setting for that luxurious romantic getaway, a honeymoon, or simply an opportunity to recharge one's batteries surrounded by the best that the Russian River has to offer.

This is a 2 story house with open space in both the lower level and the upper level. The kitchen, dining and living area, and bathroom are downstairs and upstairs is a large master bedroom and a second bath. The entire property is surrounded by a huge redwood deck with a hot tub encircled by 7 redwood trees, lots of comfortable deck furniture and a hammock.

In summer, dine on the large outdoor decks or laze in our hammock, or on our plentiful deck furniture. Enjoy late night dips in the outdoor hot tub under a cathedral of redwoods. Take a 5 minute walk to our semi-private beach where you can swim or kayak or bask in the sun. In winter, cozy up in a well insulated and beautifully appointed space and view the rain falling against the many windows that provide light and restful views of the redwoods.

Spring and fall provide opportunities to view the natural beauty of wildflowers or autumn's foliage. Hike at the ocean (15 minutes away), bike ride or horseback ride in Armstrong State Park, golf at Northwood Golf Course (a nine hole public course set amidst the redwoods), shop in Guerneville or wine taste at many of the local wineries. Delicious dining at some of the area's great restaurants is available any season.

We're sure you won't be disappointed with the beauty, casual elegance, and modern comfort that Willowhaven provides all throughout the year.

  • Transaction and pre-trip info/discussion was easy. Directions were clear. House was wonderful--perfect for our minimoon. The hot tub surrounded by trees is truly spectacular. The house feels very private.

  • We had a GREAT time at this house. The instructions and directions for the house were really easy and detailed. The hot tub was amazing and the bed was comfortable too. We found an air mattress in the basement and used it instead of the pull out couch and it was perfect! We'll definitely go there again. Thanks for the fun house!!

  • although the hosts were not on premises, the house was perfectly set up, including the hot tub! when we had difficulties with the electricity on saturday night (we blew a fuse on the deck lights), bob answered our call and sent someone over who had it fixed in 5 minutes! lovely spot and we'll definitely be back. although the couch does pull out (so can technically sleep 4), it is probably best for 2 people as it's an open loft-like space (bathroom walls do not go all the way up, for example). thanks for a wonderful weekend!

  • This is a gem of a vacation home! It is surrounded by trees yet is designed with tons of windows and cut-outs to let the light in. And the hot tub among the redwoods is magical! Perfect for a romantic get-away for two.

    In our case there were four of us, and though there was indeed a pull-out couch on the ground floor, it wasn't particularly comfortable and all the openings in the house meant that snores traveled freely between the two floors. There were also some blinds missing on a window next to the pull-out couch, which slightly reduced our privacy.

    Other than that, no complaints! The fireplaces were quaint, the kitchen was modern, the river was close, the deck was enormous, and the instructions were clear. Would definitely book again!

  • Willow Haven exceeded our expectations for a relaxing and romantic getaway. The hot tub was amazing, surrounded by the cathedral of trees. We even popped in the hot tub one evening when it was raining and it was perfect - we were completely sheltered by the trees.

    The kitchen has every amenity you'd need, the master has a super comfortable bed next to a cozy wood burning fireplace, and the windows throughout the home bring the outdoors in.

    A perfect little getaway just a hop skip and a jump from San Francisco. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a private and cozy weekend getaway. Thank you Sue for sharing your lovely abode!

  • This place is great. The house is very modern and the hot tub was amazing. You really can't beat getting in the hot tub in the morning and looking up at the redwoods.

  • Great house and location! Will definitely be back.

  • We had a great stay. The house is lovely and the hot tub in between the gigantic redwoods is amazing. The house was very clean and was just great!

We have always loved the redwoods and when we found this lot we had to purchase it. In addition Monte Rio is an easy 1.5 hour getaway from Oakland, CA where we live. We supervised the building of this lovely property and picked out everything down to the light bulbs in the ceiling. We're excited to share our home away form home and hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy our visits.
