Imagine watching wildlife from every room of the house! The Knot Hole is a retreat unto itself, featuring 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The home is nestled against a fern laden hillside and surrounded by a tall privacy fence. Enjoy life amongst towering redwoods, just yards away from your own access to the crystal clear waters of East Austin Creek. Glimpse otters as they swim upstream or watch the salmon spawn! This year-round creek is home to a plethora of wildlife, including giant blue heron, egrets, wild turkeys, otters and deer.
The Knot Hole offers a serene, visually rich multi-level environment with abundant windows, glass French doors, 4 separate decks and a hot tub.
Outside, you'll find multiple decks and sitting areas on the property. The lower deck features an outdoor sunken claw foot bathtub. The hot tub sits on its own private deck and is shaded by an umbrella (imagine soaking in the hot tub even in the misty rain). The middle deck features an outdoor dining set with views of the Austin Creek. The rooftop deck offers comfortable outdoor furniture, also with spectacular views of the creek. Besides these sitting areas, The Knot Hole also offers 2 more sitting areas alongside the creek. A swimming hole is located about 100 feet down the road.
Inside this home, Persian rugs complement the 100-year-old knotty pine floors that grace the main living areas. Enjoy your morning coffee at the living room table while you watch hummingbirds flash their iridescent colors. Or enjoy the morning from the privacy of the hot tub while you listen to the waters of East Austin Creek. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen offers granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The comfortable furnishings and ambiance assure a relaxing stay. The master bedroom is equipped with a writing nook, antique wood stove, picture window, down comforters and down pillows. The master bathroom also features mosaics and multiple windows that allow you to view the birds and ferns on the hillside even while showering. The comfortable cozy furnishings, antiques and ambiance assure a relaxing stay. The second bedroom and second mosaic-tiled bathroom are accessible by an exterior entrance.
This piece of paradise is also dog friendly, as it's fully fenced and allows lots of safe areas to relax with your dog. (Please note that the steep hillside behind the house is not fenced, but only the most skilled canine climbers can get out.)
Have kids who want to explore creeks, catch frogs and splash in puddles? You can find it all at The Knot Hole, for your kids or for your inner child.

We enjoyed our stay at the Redwood Lane Retreat. The house has an amazing deck with a great view of the hills, trees and even some local vineyards. There was plenty of room for all of us and we enjoyed cooking in the updated kitchen. The town of Guerneville had quite a few eateries and shops, a little bit of everything to choose from. We would definitely go back, next time staying longer.
The pics just don't do this place justice. The deck, yard, and view are gorgeous. We had such a great weekend here! The house is huge, however it is mostly bedrooms. 5 bedrooms with the lower 2 bedrooms having 2 twin beds each, perfect for kids. The master bedroom is gigantic as is the hot tub on the back porch. This home couldn't have been more suited to our needs.
Only about 1.5 hrs away from SF but it really feels like a distant getaway. Great views, great home, recommended.
Great stay for a girl's weekend! The kitchen/dining/living room set up was open and ideal for cooking dinners in the well-stocked kitchen. The house was clean and has a great view overlooking a vineyard. The owners left a nice bottle of wine too. The downstairs bedrooms are a bit cooler than upstairs but there are plenty of blankets. Also I signed an additional contract outside of AirBnb's via fax but the process was smooth.
This house was amazing! The was cozy and comfortable, with a great kitchen and beautiful views of the redwoods all around you. It's very secluded and quiet, but close enough to town where you can go buy food, go hiking or do anything else you'd like. My friends, dog and I had a blast there. I would definitely recommend it and come back!
The management was super friendly and helpful as well!
Great stay and great home. The hot tub was perfect and the yard is to die for!
Lovely space. My guests and I really enjoyed the view of the river, the large dining table and the ample amount of parking. Everything was fully stocked and nicely kept up.
The Swquoia Beach Dreamery was such a unique experience. The level of attention to details is amazing -- as you keep looking around especially outside, you see more and more little things that add to the beauty of the place. You have a beautiful creek in the backyard! And a hot tub where you can look up and see the moon rising from the tall trees. Mesmerizing place.
Beds are very comfortable, living room gives you ample and comfortable space, and the kitchen has everything you need. We could not ask for more.
The owner was very kind to send us details about the area, trails, etc in advance. And, the staff at River Homes Russian River Vacation Homes were a joy to do business with.
All in all, an A+ experience. You won't be disappointed!
This is a great little spot in an ideal residential area of Guerneville. The house is actually much nicer and cozier that the pictures seem to show. The interior has tons of warmth and comfort and the kitchen has almost anything you'd need. The property looks great and the hosts made it super convenient to close up and check-out.
The house is right on the river on a street just off 116. It doesn't get better than that if you're looking for some time on the Russian River. The back terrace/porch is super spacious, isolated by tall sequoias, with great views and a hot tub. With plenty of room for 6 or more, we'd book again in a heartbeat.
The house was the perfect location for our girls weekend away! The kitchen was wonderfully equipped for a large group to make a meal together, and the space was awesome for a group of 8. We will definitely be back! Check in was very easy because of the key code and all of the instructions were very clear. The house was clean and the location could not have been better - a short 5 minute drive to the cute downtown. Thanks for an awesome stay!
