Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come relax and unwind in a tranquil cabin in the trees. Located just a mile from downtown Guerneville near the idyllic Russian River, this charming hillside cottage is perfect for a romantic retreat, an outdoor adventure, or working on that novel you've been meaning to write. You truly feel away from it all in this peaceful setting with stunning forest views. Simple vintage furnishings and a lack of distracting technological amenities allow you to enjoy the quiet curled up on the couch in front of a fire or lounging on the spacious, private deck with outdoor shower. Take a short stroll to the neighborhood beach at Summer Crossing, or explore the many wineries, restaurants, hiking trails and antique shops in the surrounding area.

Built in the 1930s as a summer getaway, the cabin was beautifully crafted from local redwood trees with a number of delightful details that make it unique. The lower level has a cozy bedroom with a built-in full size bed. The bathroom has a tiled floor and a redwood shower. Exit the lower level to go up the stairs to the upper level, which has a spacious open living, dining and kitchen area. The living area has a comfortable convertible bed in front of a wood stove. Sit on the stool at the bar while your loved one prepares a meal in the kitchen equipped with refrigerator, stove, oven, utensils, and essential condiments. Enjoy your meal at the dining room table while looking out over the trees from the giant picture windows.

****PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING****

Please read this description thoroughly, as well as traveler reviews, to ensure our cabin is the right fit for your traveling style and expectations. This is a homey, unpolished cabin in the woods. Those who love peace and quiet and rustic getaways from modernity LOVE our place, don't mind the stair workout to get there, and keep coming back. Please read on for important things of note:

Kids and pets are welcome at your own risk as there are no child safe railings on the deck and no fenced-in area for dogs. The cabin is on a quarter-acre of wooded land on a hill. There are about 80 steps from the parking area to the cabin (see picture #14), so it is definitely not wheelchair accessible and may be difficult for the elderly or those with knee problems. The privacy on the hill is worth the trek!

Due to its lack of central heating and insulation, the Treehouse will not be available for rent in December and January. Due to popular demand, we have extended our season to include November, February and March. We do this with the caveat that it may rain and could be chilly, but if you want it, you got it.

Why The Owner chose Guerneville

We fell in love with this cabin the moment we saw it. It is absolutely charming and we feel removed from the stresses of the world while we are there, yet we can head out and be at any number of amazing restaurants in minutes. With the Russian River just a short walk away, the beautiful coast a mere 15 minute drive, and the amazing unpretentious plethora of wineries nearby, this location has all the best Sonoma County has to offer. We have traveled extensively, and we feel it is truly one of the best locations in the world.

What makes this cabin unique

We have intentionally kept our cabin as simple as possible. While we are there, we don't want the distractions of television or the internet. Other places may offer more amenities, but our peaceful place is perfect for reconnecting with nature and one another or just enjoying a good book in silence. Plus, there aren't too many places private enough that you can enjoy a shower in the outdoors under the redwoods.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary here. It was just what we needed. The stairs are crazy, but well worth it. Loved our time here. Just wish we could've stayed longer. Thank you for opening your Treehouse to us.

Cute and cozy AND clean

  • 5 of 5

The Tree House is so cute and cozy. Although not actually perched in a tree, the design of the home amongst the treetops felt as though it were really a tree house. It rained quite hard so we weren’t able to enjoy the outside spaces- but again they were very inviting. We have already talked about booking again. It’s close enough to walk to town during the day but wouldn’t recommend it at night- dark, narrow road. It was a wonderful break and a peaceful place to unplug. The master bed is comfortable and tucked away in a sweet nook on the bottom level. The bathroom is also on the lower level but we didn’t find this to be an issue at all. The stairs leading up to the property are steep and many, but well worth the climb. Pro-tip: limit the amount of stuff you bring- luggage/food -because you will have to lug it up to the house and back down to your car. We would definitely recommend this property to friends. The ocean is about a 20 minute drive but if you choose to drive to Ft. Ross, even though it’s only a few miles further, the drive is on a slow, windy, sketchy at times, road. But the fort is worth seeing and there is tide pooling close by. Dinner at River’s End in Jenner was delish! We sat at the bar but still had an incredible view of the ocean at sunset. The final day of our trip was spent zip lining just 30 minutes away from the house with Sonoma Canopy Tours. A bit pricey, but the adventure was worth every dime. Thank you again to our hosts at the Tree House.

Amazing location, super cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, 2 friends and 3 dogs stayed at the Treehouse for a rainy few days this March. We had an AMAZING time. The location was so great, right between wine country and the coast and with a grocery store 5 minutes away by car. The house was super comfortable and cozy. We loved having the wood stove going to heat up the place. I had such a great time I booked another weekend at the Treehouse for later this year.

Quiet, clean, sylvan

  • 4 of 5

Exciting to stay in a tree house with graceful, fun touches. The water was a bit sulfurous while we were there --bring bottled water for coffee. Great views, tasty meals nearby, and a woodstove!

Great getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin tucked away in the trees. Loved that we could feel the 1930’s origins in the place, yet it was updated enough. The stairs are no joke - but we were warned. True, it was chilly in late November (and the portable bedroom heater didn’t work), but the fireplace warmed the room right up. The outdoor shower is great: plenty of hot water in the bracing air while looking up at the trees. Great getaway, thank you.

Quiet, lovely retreat

  • 4 of 5

I love the winter redwoods, which is why this place appealed, and did not disappoint. It was great to be in the trees and feel a part of nature again.

I would say that if you are going to stay here in the winter be prepared for having the bathroom in the downstairs portion of the structure and separate from the kitchen and main living area. I was very glad that I brought slip on shoes and a good heavy sweater as having to go outside and down some stairs to the bathroom would have taken some preparation otherwise.

All in all a good place to stay.
