Description

Blackberry Bliss is a tranquil, romantic and well-appointed vintage cabin oasis on the banks of beautiful Austin Creek that offers a setting of breathtaking beauty. It was built in 1954 and has been lovingly restored and updated. The house features a private creekside beach and sunny, level backyard meadow. Blackberry Bliss's 1,000 sq ft redwood deck is complete with a private outdoor hot tub, custom oversized redwood chaise lounges, dining bistro, and even more seating providing views of the creek, yard, flowers and trees, including the majestic redwoods, and is enclosed and gated for pets. At night, you'll rejoice in the privacy of magical moon and star-filled nights.

The interior of the cabin is detailed with vaulted open wood beamed ceilings, French doors that seamlessly bring the outdoors in, custom finished redwood detailing and live-edge pass through bar. Blackberry Bliss is artistically furnished including an eclectic collection of both local and international art and artifacts.

Blackberry Bliss is well located within minutes of Guerneville, the Sonoma Coast/beaches and
other nearby historic Russian River towns, including Duncan's Mills, Jenner and Bodega Bay and offering several great restaurants, wine tasting, golf and fun shopping.

We really enjoyed our time at this cottage. It’s in the perfect spot to soak up the sounds of the forest and relax. The back deck was wonderful and we loved that we could walk right down to the creek with our dog. The rental was immaculate, very well-appointed for cooking/grilling, and full of welcoming amenities. The one minor improvement we could recommend is bringing the dining nook into the main living space where it’s warmer. Other than that, a truly lovely spot to spend a week!

We had the best stay at Blackberry Bliss! The house is very well stocked with essentials and then some, and very well taken care of. Communication with the rental agency was clear and helpful, making check-in and checkout super easy. The property is beautiful, remote and relaxing. Our dog loved the yard and we enjoyed the deck and hot tub. Would highly recommend anyone stay here!

Such a lovely location and peaceful retreat! Having access to the creek and being able to let my dogs play in the yard is such a wonderful treat for us dog owners. The house was well equity and Mother Nature cooperated to perfection. I’ll definitely be back!

We loved Blackberry Bliss so much in the fall that we booked another long weekend there again. It didn't dissappoint. It was a fantastic place to unwind and relax, be cozy and listen to the rain, soak in the hottub and watch the busy humblebirds. Our poodle loved to sniff around the back yard and the creek.
The house is well stocked with spices and cookware, and lots of wood for the wood stove.

What a beautiful and sweet little house in the woods. I loved the absolute quiet of the home, and sitting in the hot tub looking at a redwood. Fully stocked kitchen was a very pleasant surprise as well. Russian River Homes was extremely accommodating with my questions and needs during my stay, I was very impressed with them. I hope I can stay again. Be sure to download the Hospitality app for your stay as there is info you may need for your stay there.

Fell in love with the venue after seeing photos of the property, especially the beautiful deck surrounded by redwoods. Perfect cabin for a couple. Super quiet. Many spots to choose from to sit and soak up the forest and creek. And a lovely touch to have a number of Hummingbird feeders along the back wall of windows to watch them all. Great place. Highly recommended.

My husband stayed here for our honeymoon and it was even better than we thought. It’s so peaceful and beautiful there. The house was very clean and cozy and it was fully equipped with everything you could need. It had all kitchen equipment, shower products and even a full first aid kit. I had a couple questions during my stay and River Homes was so responsive and kind. We will definitely be back!

Wow, what a fun weekend we had a Blackberry Bliss. It was a fun adventure, the cabin is so adorable, well stocked, well kept, much loved sweet paradise in Caz!! I am in love with this cabin and you can tell the owners also do too! Such nice touches throughout, everything in the house was working in perfect condition. The cabin has so many places to look at the amazing majestic redwoods. We were there when the lightning started at 3:00 am and it was so cool to watch from the bedroom slider. Also, Russian River Vacation Homes is so easy and welcoming. I have always used them instead of VRBO as I prefer brick and mortar business'. Very clean cabin, we can't wait to book our next adventure at Blackberry Bliss. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy your gem!

Blackberry Bliss is the perfect cabin for a couples getaway. The cabin itself has everything you'd need and has a warm, inviting country feel to it. The outside deck is amazing for relaxing, listening to the creek and generally soaking up the peaceful sounds of nature. You can also walk through the beautifully kept garden and head on down to the creek, where you find a little rocky beach with some chairs. Another perfect spot for relaxing! All in all, this little cabin gave this weary urbanite couple a perfect vacation amongst the redwoods. We will DEFINITELY be back!
