What a great place to stay while exploring the Russian River Valley and Sonoma wine country! It's a lovely quiet, peaceful spot set among the redwoods with a multitude of decks. The house is well equipped and well maintained. We mainly ate out (plenty of places near by) but the kitchen has all you would need to cook with the area's superb local ingredients. Highlights were having breakfast and coffee on the top deck and enjoying the hot tub at the end of a long day of hiking and wine tasting. It even has a great sound system with a collection of vinyl records which we finally tried out on our last day. Oh well, we will just have to come back.
This property is well maintained, and the staff do a great job to make sure all needs are covered. My wife and I were travelling with 2 other couples (with whom we had not traveled before) and the communal spaces and the personal spaces really enhanced our experience. We were able to be together, and when it was time...be apart as well. The location was ideal for our exploration of the Sonoma area, and it was a nice respite to escape to when the evening drew. Decks, patios, hottub, grassy areas all provided nice settings to relax or be festive with our friends. The rooms were well-stocked, including the kitchen. The management crew were unfailingly polite, helpful, and professional. An unequivocal recommendation to others, and we hope to return as well. Oh...and we thought it was a bargain!

I recommend this place for a family reunion, little weddings, bday celebrations. We stayed here with my husband and my parents.
The place is clean and the beds are comfortable with good sheets and bedding! The kitchen is comfortable and has everything for cooking: pans, pots, knives, cutting boards and more! The office is very cozy and the fireplace is perfect. It was warm, clean and nice!
The house is big and conveniently located close to the wineries, restaurant, grocery store. If I was the owner of this place I would paint the living room-kitchen area-it does need it.(scratches, dirt on the walls) I would use a warm beige color to make it cozy and soft. I really loved the natural touches as wood furniture (woven chairs, seating, benches, rugs). There were 5 of us and it felt like we needed more toilet paper and paper towels in the kitchen. There was only half of paper towel in the kitchen, half of toilet paper in each bathrooms. We bought some on our own and the problem was fixed. The laundry was a great plus and we loved it. The detergent was not provided although it was mentioned in the contract. And there is no dishwasher. So if you are ready to wash the dishes then it's okay. We did not mind washing the dishes but missed the dishwasher!
We slept really well in the woods in this beautiful house! I would recommend this place to my friends!
