Big Bertha's

Cabin Chic with Wonderful Details

Description

Big Bertha's has all the ingredients of a beloved vacation home. It is comfortable, stylish, unique, well-appointed and private yet conveniently located. Inside and out, Big Bertha's expertly combines convenience and comfort with playful cabin chic. With a bocce ball court, outdoor fireplace, hot tub, gas grill, well-stocked kitchen, charming dining room writing desk, reading spots, games and books, cable TVs, high-speed internet, gas fireplace, kids game room, serene views and multiple coffee stations, Big Bertha's is equally equipped to accommodate families, groups of friends, couples, lovers, food lovers, wine lovers, writers, philosophers, morning people, evening people, middle-of-the-day people and, well, pretty much anyone!

Upstairs - Big Bertha's sits hillside, and is two levels (the upstairs is the main living area). From the driveway, two flights of stairs lead to the deck and front door. Just inside the front door is a small entranceway, with hooks for coats and a place for muddy shoes. This room also contains the washer/dryer. The open kitchen and dining rooms are directly adjacent. The kitchen is recently remodeled with stainless steel appliances and attractive cabinetry. The bar counter transitions smoothly to the dining area, with a dining table which can comfortably seat 8. Sliding doors from the dining room lead out to the deck, which has a gas BBQ, picnic table, and folding Adirondack chairs. An open doorway from the dining area leads to the living room, with couch, chairs, chess table, reading lamps, cable TV, iPod dock, and a writing desk. A short hallway, accessible from both the living room and the kitchen, leads to one bathroom (with bathtub/shower), a bedroom with two twins, and a bedroom with a queen bed.

Downstairs - From the far side of the living room, next to the gas fireplace, a spiral staircase leads to the downstairs level. The downstairs has a game room, with a double futon for additional sleeping space, cable TV, and a Foosball table. At the far end of the game room is a small suite with a queen bed, coffee station and small, yet full, bathroom with a shower. Sliding doors lead to a small lower deck with two Adirondack chairs; a great spot for enjoying some morning coffee!

Outdoors - The main outdoor living areas are located on the same level as the main interior. In addition to the deck with gas BBQ and outdoor dining, there is a side yard with a bocce ball court and a back patio with a hot tub.

Big Bertha's is named for the original owner, Bertha. She and her husband built the house in 1952 and she is still a welcome visitor. When walking though the hallway, notice the art work, which is actually pieces of the original flooring found during the remodel.

My girlfriends and I rented this house as part of a bachelorette trip. We loved it. The house is spacious and comfortable. We loved the hot tub and the fireplace for relaxing. We also enjoyed being super close to the wineries, the beach, and the redwoods. It was a nice touch to have a clean, unwrapped sponge on the sink. I can't tell you how many rentals I've had where they allow guests to re-use items like this from prior guests. It shows that they are thinking about cleanliness. Overall a great trip. We will be back!

Well, upon arrival you're just amazed at this home because it's sooo well stocked, organized, there's signs and directions for everything! The outdoor space was amazing. They have outdoor activities available, jacuzzi, fireplace, grill. This house has everything. It's in a quaint neighborhood surrounded by trees. My husband and I spent our birthdays here with our dogs, baby and another couple friends. There was plenty of room for all. The house is great, bedrooms have queen beds (bedrooms are on the smaller side FYI), except the kids room has 2 twin beds. All amenities worked great. Thanks for relaxing stay!

We spent the last 3 days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It suited our needs very well. We were staying with our son and his family (including almost 2 yr old Zoe). There are two levels. My wife and I stayed downstairs. The two upstairs bedrooms were perfect for Zoe and her parents. This house has great indoor and outdoor living areas. Plenty of room to spread out and to enjoy different times of day in the various settings. House is well equipped and has lots of helpful instructions posted. The negatives were few and all related to kitchen equipment. None of the knives are sharp and there is no sharpener. The can opener needs to be replaced. There was no medium sized saucepan. Fairly minor inconveniences, but I am listing them here because I doubt the owners are aware of these things and they can be easily remedied. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Big Bertha was the perfect spot for my almost two week vacation. The first half of my trip was with my two adult kids and a couple of friends of my daughter to celebrate her birthday and and have some family time. The place worked very well for this; plenty of space to spread out but also nice communal areas. After the family left; I hosted three of my lady friends for the next five days. Perfect again for the amount of people. We had a wonderful time using the hot tub, making food and of course lots of laughter and wine form the local wineries. My daughters small dog was my only companion for the whole trip and he loved the place, especially the squirrels in the trees and the sun lounging on the deck.

This is a nice house with lots of history. The driveway is steep, but easy to use and not a problem. It was a little hard to find, we drove by it twice, but once we found it, the rest was simple. The house was well equipped, clean and warm. It was a good location to explore the coast and small towns around the area. We had a wonderful time.

We rented Big Bertha's for a girl's weekend away with 6 women. Big Bertha's was conveniently located to wineries and Healdsburg, and right outside of the town of Guerneville. The house was super cute and fun, with plenty of room for the 6 of us with all the amenities we could hope for. It's in the trees, so feels remote, but restaurants and other attractions are a short drive away. We would rent this again, we loved it.

We were looking for a place to hunker down and pass the New Year quietly and Big Bertha's very much fit the bill. The dogs were happy, the people were happy, the kitchen, dining and living areas were warm and comfortable and the hot tub hot! Any questions? Some observations, though. Don't choose Big Bertha's if you hate stairs. The stairway to the front entrance intimidated even our dogs and the member of our party with the bad foot had to take it very slow. And the interior stairway resembles more a fireman's pole than a real staircase...... Town is a scenic twenty minute walk away but beware of walking along the highway. Cars zoom around the two major curves you'll pass and it can be scary. But we're picking nits here. Everything else about this place rocked!

We rented this space for the Thanksgiving holiday, and found ourselves in a conundrum when we couldn't find basic cooking utensils like cookie sheets or liquid measuring cups. We were also challenged when trying to get our dog down the spiral stairs without going outside into the pouring rain. There was too much chlorine in the spa, and we were missing a bocce ball. All of those small points aside, our time at Big Bertha's was awesome and enjoyable, and was most likely the best Thanksgiving we've had! We were certainly glad we came!

This home was everything we hoped it would be and more! Clean and comfortable, it suited our family perfectly. The downstairs area was ideal for our son and daughter in law, and the upstairs just right for ourselves and our other son. It was cozy without being cramped. When you look out the windows, you see trees! When you open the doors or windows, you smell the forest! It was like being a millions miles away but close enough to town to not be totally isolated. We did need to call the owners for one thing and they responded immediately. Would definitely recommend to any family or even 2 couples to share.

I've stayed at a previous Russian River Vacation Rental property to spend time with my two teenage kids. This time my son said "Dad, each time it gets better and better..." We had a great four night stay. We spent a couple days exploring the nearby beaches in Jenner and those along the Russian River. But our favorite place was Big Bertha's. It was impeccably clean and extraordinarily decorated. My kids begged me to buy the place straight away! We loved the spa, fire pit, and playing tether ball. And before bed we enjoyed watching a Netflix movie. I can't recommend RRVR (and specifically Big Bertha's) more highly. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

"Great place to hunker down!"

5 of 5

Three straight days of bad weather did nothing to put a damper on our stay as warm, comfy Big Bertha's kept us well entertained! Light and airy- especially welcome as the weather was gray and dour. Kitchen gets ***** as it was clean, efficient and well up to the task of churning out the three squares a day we demanded of it and the hot tub was awesome. Location was great too......just a short walk to the main road and twenty minutes into the heart of town. A couple of quibbles......bring your own corkscrew....Big Bertha's is a cork destroying Old School set of angel's wings. And the ice maker in the fridge made no ice while we were there. Also be aware that if you don't like stairs, this ain't your place! The stairs that go down to the very cute third bedroom and mini-apartment are better suited to a firehouse but we got used to them. All in all, a terrific stay and we plan on renting again!

"Loved Big Bertha's"

5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay at Big Bertha's and would definitely come again! Everything honestly exceeded our expectations. We picked Big Bertha's because we wanted a quiet cabin that still felt modern. We had three couples and baby and there was plenty of space for everyone. The suite downstairs was perfect for the family in our group and allowed them to have some quiet space for the baby. Russian River Homes was also incredibly helpful in terms of making sure that we had access to a highchair and crib. We loved the outdoor space and really enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. They have a great selection of board games and the living area was so cozy in the evening with a fire. I couldn't possibly give this place a higher review! Stay here!

"Perfect Getaway!"

5 of 5

We plan a 'women's wine weekend' yearly and found Big Bertha's on Flipkey. The house had a great deck with a hot tub and most importantly, a tetherball set up! It was a perfect size for the seven of us and I remarked to the booking agent how exceptionally clean the entire home was! We will definitely be back.

Manager Response:

Hello!
And thank you for sharing a review with future guests!!! We love Big Bertha's too! And we appreciate you noticing the cleaning - we try! And, we'd love to have you back any time for any kind of visit!

"Perfect Spot to Relax"

5 of 5

We spent a week in the redwoods in this luxury retreat and enjoyed every minute. The house is fully equipped with three nice bedrooms and two baths. The living room is large and inviting with a gas fireplace and flat screen tv. Although we chose to make this a true vacation and eat the majority of our meals in area restaurants, we appreciated the ability to have coffee, tea and breakfast on site. The home includes two coffee makers (one Keurig), an electric kettle, toaster, popcorn popper and all the comforts of home. Two things I'd like to mention: although the coffee maker and the kettle are situated together on a shelf, do not run both of them at once with the same outlet. We blew a fuse and had to move the coffee maker to the kitchen counter. Also the second upstairs bedroom has two child sized twin beds. Luckily my 6'7" son and his family only spent one night with us because the bed ended at his knees. We all loved sitting together on the deck and playing tetherball and bocce ball. The adults also enjoyed the hot tub. I would return in a New York minute and would recommend this cozy place to any family who wishes to enjoy the beauty of the Russian River area.

Manager Response:

Thank you for the review!
And we appreciate the note about the coffee makers and tripping the breaker - we'll have someone check it out so this doesn't happen for future guests!
And, we'd have you back in a New York minute too!

"Totally worth it"

5 of 5

We booked this spot several months ago knowing that we wanted to be in the woods but also have the luxuries that a really nice house provides. Everything met and/or exceeded our expectations. The house was perfect, cozy and provided us with everything we needed for the week. I really have zero criticisms. We felt very at home and peaceful in this house. Kids loved it as well. Enjoyed how close it was to town, but how quiet it was on the street. Just enough space for all of us to relax and not get on each other's nerves. We would definitely book with this agency and stay at this house again.

Manager Response:

Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you again soon!

"Perfect"

5 of 5

Big Bertha is just right ---- style, location, comfort, beauty.There were many different areas to relax and enjoy conversation with friends --- whether in big chairs around the outdoor fireplace, the living room with cathedral ceilings overlooking the forest, or gathered around the large dining room table. Inside the historic home is a fully stocked modern kitchen and laundry facility overlooking the deck. The bedding and towels were top notch. The main rooms get lots of light and there's even an Eames lounge chair. This place is very comfortable and tastefully furnished while maintaining a rural charm. Also, it's on a large hillside lot with no neighbors in sight from the deck or windows. Easy access to town, to the river and to the coast. We'll definitely stay here again, hopefully soon!

"Great Time at Big Bertha's!"

5 of 5

I came here with 5 friends for a birthday weekend. The house was very nicely updated and had everything we needed. The deck, BBQ, and hot tub were all great and where we spent most of our time. It was a short walk to the river, and overall very nice and quiet near the house (well, maybe except for us). Getting the keys and renting the house was a very easy experience. I would absolutely stay here again.

Manager Response:

And we'd love to have you back!
Big Bertha's is a special place - all the amenities of home (and more), walking distance to the Russian River, across the street from Hulbert Creek, tucked in a quiet neighborhood with wildlife and lovely neighbors. And the owners really think about what guests need and want while traveling... Amazing!

"Exception stay!"

5 of 5

I've stayed at a previous Russian River Vacation Rental property to spend time with my two teenage kids. This time my son said "Dad, each time it gets better and better..."We had a great four night stay. We spent a couple days exploring the nearby beaches in Jenner and those along the Russian River. But our favorite place was Big Bertha's. It was impeccably clean and extraordinarily decorated. My kids begged me to buy the place straight away! We loved the spa, fire pit, and playing tether ball. And before bed we enjoyed watching a Netflix movie. I can't recommend RRVR (and specifically Big Bertha's) more highly. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

Manager Response:

Thank you for the great review! I can't think of a better endorsement than a quote from a teenage son :). We'd love to have you back.

"Perfect getaway for the long weekend"

5 of 5

Had friends visiting from out of town who had never been to Wine Country or the Pacific Coast before. They also had a small child with them so the configuration of the house was perfect for us. They stayed in the downstairs area and had a bedroom, separate entrance and bathroom to themselves and a play area/game room space for playing quietly with the baby when she was fussy or awake at 5am. The rest of us slept upstairs on the main floor and we could hang out and play boardgames into the wee hours of the morning while the weary parents and baby could sleep peacefully downstairs.Everything was impeccably clean and in good repair. The house was extremely well labeled and had many thoughtful items like board games, slippers for walking out to the hot tub, spices in the kitchen, a coffeemaker and an electric kettle for tea, and laundry detergent packs. The beds were comfortable and the diningroom table was the perfect size for our group.Having the baby, we appreciated having the pack'n play and high chair onsite so we didn't have to bring one with us. Also with the baby gates on the top of the stairs, it was toddler-friendly.The staff at Russian River Vacation Homes were uniformly pleasant, friendly and professional. They made sure we had all the information we needed and made the process of picking up the keys and returning them extremely easy with their lockbox system.My friends raved about the place and said it was the highlight of their trip!

Thank you for taking the time to leave this great review! I am so glad that you and your friends enjoyed Big Bertha's.
