Description

Baumhaus is the German word for treehouse - and that's what it feels like when you're at Baumhaus - looking through the windows or off the deck into the incredible redwood trees. The original cabin (upper level) is traditional, striking, cedar Lincoln log construction while the lower level with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, and another living room were added later. An exterior staircase carries you from the upper deck to the lower deck where you'll love lounging, BBQ-ing , dining outside, and soaking in the hot tub!

There are so many spaces to gather with friends and family - inside and outside. The cozy upstairs living room features a woodstove and dining area closest to the kitchen. The downstairs living room includes a flat screen TV with Roku and ample seating. And when the weather is good, you'll want to be outside! Surprisingly, Baumhaus gets more sun than most homes in the redwood forest. Not to mention the perfect space for stargazing! You'll love the sense of serenity and connection to nature during your stay.

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at Baumhaus is 6 people. With 4 bedrooms and 5 beds, it may be tempting to invite more guests than allowed under the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance. Don't do it! Complaints to the office and/or county will result in fines and the termination of your stay. If clarification is required, please contact our office. Quiet hours are from 10:00 pm until 7:00 am. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at all times.

Parking: There is parking for 3 cars. There is no street parking or shoulder. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes: Upstairs Master Bedroom: Queen bed; Upstairs Second Bedroom: Full bed; Downstairs 1st Bedroom: 2 Full beds foot-to-foot; Downstairs 2nd Bedroom: Twin bed.

Heat Source: Central heat with a Nest thermostat to control each level of the house. There's also a woodstove in the upstairs living room - please bring your kindling and firewood.

A/C: The house does not have air conditioning. Being near the coast, the night time temps drop and just opening some windows is usually enough to cool the house.

Road and Driveway: Baumhaus is located in rural West Sonoma County where roads can be steep and winding. The road to the house is a narrow, one-lane country road - you may need to pull over for oncoming traffic. It is, in spots, steep with sharp turns, and the road is paved but not necessarily smooth. Confirmed guests are sent detailed driving directions.

Stairs: There are no stairs from the main parking area to the upper level of the house (with two bedrooms, full bathroom, kitchen and common areas). There are exterior stairs to the lower level of the house with the other two bedrooms, full bathroom and common area. There are not interior stairs between the two levels. Please view the floorplan for greater details.

Fencing: None of the yard is fenced but the upper and lower decks on the back of the house are enclosed.

Common Amenities not included: This house provides YouTubeTV, Roku and Chromecast instead of traditional cable TV service.

Proximity to wineries: There are several tasting rooms in downtown Guerneville (8.4 miles from the house) and more than you can count in a short driving distance.

Nearest River Beach: There are several river beaches with public access, but the easiest close one is at the Monte Rio Public Beach - 4.4 miles from the house.

Nearest Ocean Beach: The closest ocean beaches are in Jenner - just less than 8 miles from the house.

Wonderful Time

Reviewed on 2022-05-02 by Marta

We had a wonderful time at the house! It ended up being only 4 of us and it felt incredibly luxurious and spacious. It was very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you’d need to cook. The checkin/checkout process was very easy- make sure to take a screenshot of driving directions and key code before you lose service! Adjusting things like the heat and using the hot tub were also super intuitive and no fiddling necessary. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. All weekend we kept commenting how this was one of the best Airbnbs we’d ever stayed at and would love to come again!-Via Airbnb

Lovely, secluded and well-stocked home! The location is great, just a short drive to the coast but tucked away in incredible redwoods along Austin Creek. The hot tub and outdoor space are wonderful. As long as you don't mind the outdoor staircase between the two floors, this is a great house. I do not recommend the the downstairs bedrooms for adult sleepers. The downstairs beds are thin mattresses on raised platforms, which we found quite uncomfortable.-via Airbnb

This is the second time my friends and I have stayed at River Homes Baumhaus in Cazadero, and both times have been truly wonderful. The space is warm and wonderful, the hot tub and deck amidst the Redwoods is magical in the early morning, and the kitchen and bathrooms have everything you need. We loved this experience.- via Airbnb

This cabin in the woods is everything you could imagine! The house is clean and cozy and makes you feel right at home. The kitchen was well stocked with the basics, and there were even a few spices and cooking oils to use. We planned to get married during this stay and chose this house for the view. We said our vows out on the back deck in front of our small family with the fog setting into the trees in the background and it was perfect. There are plenty of board games to keep the fun going, and the hot tub was the perfect way to end the evening. There was even a pack and play for our 5 month old daughter!-via Airbnb

Great Gathering Spaces

The best thing about this rental is the many options for gathering spaces. You can get cozy by the fire, have a meal or play games around the dining table, watch a movie and lounge about in the lower cabin, or soak in the hot tub. The strange thing about the rental is the separation of the two floors. The staircase to the lower cabin is outside, which was a particular issue during our stay, on the rainiest weekend of the year. Otherwise it was very comfortable and we lacked for very little. Would recommend, with the caveat about the odd separation of the two floors.

Hello, I'm Dione nice to meet you. My girlfriends and I, aka The Honey Bunch, enjoyed our stay at Baumhaus house. FYI the steep hill to the house is just that, so use caution. We found it to be well stocked with everything we needed, such as kitchen utensils, plates , towels , trash bags, etc. We brought our own Bluetooth speaker, although there is one in the house. It was the perfect getaway for rest and relaxation and good fun! We would have liked brighter lights in the bedrooms and updated mattresses. We loved the upstairs and had lovely dinners by the picture glass window and even a girls trip photo shoot! The four of us slept on the first floor. The downstairs wasn't as appealing to sleep, it seems it would be more kid friendly. However, there is a nice shower downstairs. It's awesome. We also enjoyed dinner on the deck and spent some time in the jacuzzi! When we visited the town, everyone was very friendly. Shell Beach is breathtaking! We would do Baumhaus house again!

Baumhaus is a beautiful and unique property. You feel as if you are alone in a lovely forest; so peaceful and relaxing!This home is designed with craftsman touches used in the wood paneling and floors. Picture windows bring in the outdoors.The home is on 2 levels, with separate living spaces for our family of 5. which was ideal.It feels very secluded but is near any of the main attractions of Russian River area. The hot tub on the deck was delightful, and we made use of the good quality barbecue unit.We can't wait to return!! Thank you for a great stayAnna

We had a long term stay at the Baumhaus and really enjoyed it! The house is nice and spacious (there were 5 adults who were all working from home), quiet, and has a beautiful view. The location is in the trees and you can't see any of the nearby houses. It is located a short walk to Austin Creek and a short drive to lots of attractions (the ocean, kayaking, hikes, Guerneville, etc). The house is very well set up . In particular, the kitchen is nicely stocked: there were lots of basic spices and oils, plus all the pots and pans most people would want, as well as dishes for indoor and outdoor dining. The hot tub is regularly serviced. We easily replaced the propane tanks for the bbq and outside heat lamp. There are plenty of towels and extras like laundry detergent. The TV area was comfy for all of us to watch movies and we would spend a lot of time all together on the deck or upstairs living room. Great WIFI, even when all of us were working.People should know that the staircase from upstairs to downstairs is actually outside. It was fine for us, but should be considered if you plan to bring kids and sleep on separate floors. Additionally, the last 500 yards to the house is up a steep hill. Again, not a problem for us, but perhaps not ideal for elderly folks who enjoy taking walks from the house.The only real downside is the downstairs shower. It has really weak pressure and takes a while to warm up. Everyone preferred showering upstairs.The folks at River Homes and DandG Realty were responsive to our needs throughout the month.

What a fantastic home! We were looking for a space large enough for a few close friends while still feeling like a small cabin nestled in the woods, and this house was absolutely perfect in both regards. We almost didn't leave for the entire three day weekend, but decided we had to strike out at least one. Just 7 minutes away, we had such a lovely afternoon at Sophie's Cellars, tasting wine, exploring antique shops and art galleries. Had we been a little less inclined to keep cozy indoors, I know there are hundreds of things to do nearby. An amazing location, and amazing house -- I'll definitely be coming back again!

We appreciated the thoughtful amenitites like a well stocked kitchen with sharp knives (when do you ever find those in a rental?), and a small amount of firewood which allowed us to arrive and jump right in to full enjoyment without having to run out to the store. Somehow I missed the fact that the home has no internal staircase. This did prove to be a bit of a game changer with sleeping arrangemets since my kids are quite young. Russian River Vacation Homes was great about communicating the day of check-in addressing a couple questions I had. We never left the house for the entire weekend! It was the perfect place to curl up with books in front of the fire, have some epic board games (tons to choose from), cook some great meals and then soak under the redwood trees. If you want time to unplug from and be close to nature, this is the perfect spot!”

I stayed at Steph and Abe's cabin for the long Thanksgiving weekend. It was warm, cozy, and rustic, providing a much needed escape from the city but with all of the conveniences you'd want! The furnishings are rustic yet modern and the beds are super comfortable. There was ample space to hang out as a group and catch up and decompress.

We arrived to the cabin at 10pm, we put away groceries and looked around for a few minutes, the cabin was just as presented in the gallery, beautiful! From ceiling to floor everything was spectacular. Spent a few minutes in the natural wooded living room but honestly we were exhausted from a day of travel and went to bed. Woke up at 0803 (I remembered the time because I have not slept through the night in many years), walked out onto the majestic deck to breathe in the fresh redwood forest air and hear the peaceful rustle of leaves and view down to the river. After a pot of freshly ground coffee we went for a long walk, ate meals in and out and played cards, board games, drank a lot of great wine and relaxed outside in the hot tub under the canopy of trees. It was a perfect couple days. We will be back!! thank you for sharing your home.

Great find in the middle of wine country! Large enough to accommodate our group without feeling cramped, plus had all the amenities you could ask for. Loved the split layout, not to mention the hot tub on the deck. Really couldn't ask for a better location, as it's close to shops, restaurants, vineyards, with plenty of hiking in the area as well. Highly recommended!

We stayed here with some family and friends and had an amazing time! The location really is great and very convenient. The house itself is really clean and well-kept and it had everything we needed. Loved the furniture and rustic decor. The beds were super comfy and the full kitchen allowed us to cook some meals at home. The home is surrounded by beautiful trees for added privacy. Bonus jacuzzi for additional relaxation right before bed! It really was such a wonderful getaway spot. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Baumhaus for a long weekend of cycling and exploring Sonoma. The location was ideal, nestled on a quiet lane just off the Russian River, a stone's throw from coastal Sonoma, Guerneville's shops and restaurants, and Sonoma's inland wineries. We particularly enjoyed returning from a day of exploring to relax in the hot tub. The house itself was extremely comfy and well decorated, but the location (both central and in the quiet woods) is what will have us coming back soon.

We had the best time! This house is immaculate, zen, and super comfortable. Surrounded by trees, you feel like you are in a private tree house. I slept so well! The house is close to the most amazing hike by the ocean, vineyards, and delicious restaurants, but removed enough to feel like you have true retreat destination. I can't wait to go back!

I stayed at Baumhaus with friends visiting from the East Coast and plan to return again in July. It is spacious and warm - upon first walking inside it makes you feel like you're home again! The decor is comfortable but stylish - mid century modern aesthetic without any pretense. The views from the windows and from the deck make you feel like you're in a treehouse - and the sounds of the birds and nature is almost as relaxing as THE HOT TUB!!! Wow! Just wow! Perfect for groups (it sleeps like 8-10 comfortably) and families with an entire apartment downstairs “for the kids” while the adults can have the upstairs. Great layout, great owners, great location...truly a five star experience for a bargain! Thanks Stephanie and Abe - I'll be back!!!
