Dreamwood

Description

NEW LISTING! - We are excited to bring Dreamwood into the Russian River Vacation Homes family of rentals. Previously owner-managed on AirBnB, Dreamwood is already a beloved vacation rental with a 5 star average rating over 30 reviews on its previous AirBnB listing. See below exceprts of what past guests have said.

Nestled into the vast coastal redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) along the protected Austin Creek, Dreamwood is a retreat unto itself! With two hammocks, an abundance of games and toys, room to spread out and one of the best swimming holes along the creek, families will love staying here year-round. Nature is the great entertainer, but the house also has wifi, a flatscreen smart TV, Sonos stereo system, and XBox. Enjoy the new sauna - especially lovely after a swim in the creek.

The ground level of the house is fully remodeled - adding two bedrooms - one of which is perfect for the kids, a full bathroom, sauna, second W/D and mini kitchen. Step outside and enjoy the view overlooking the creek front, with hammocks for lounging and ample room to run around. Upstairs, the main deck offers a propane BBQ, plenty of seating for outdoor dining and stargazing. The upper two levels remind us that this charming home started out as a rustic cabin, much loved by its family. It is a place for memory making.

Hammocks: The hammocks are seasonal amenities. During wet weather, hammocks are put away.

What past guests have said:

"This was the perfect place to stay with our 5 grand kids. Very kid friendly but nice for anyone. Sauna works easily and great." - Bobbi, January 2018

"It was so comfortable, with all the amenities one would need. It’s remote enough to unplug but close enough to town to hit Safeway for supplies. We slept 6 adults comfortably, and had more than enough towels, clean beds, and a fully stocked kitchen. The sauna and deck were especially lovely." - Deanna, December 2017

"This home is like a home-away-from-home. As soon as you walk in the door, you immediately feel embraced by a warm, cozy environment that seems to have everything you need. The kitchen has every pot & pan, there are plenty of towels, pillows, even extra beds. The comfy wrap-around sofa is perfect for conversation and the long dining room table brings family and friends together. Sleeping rooms downstairs are good for kids when adults want to stay up later upstairs. There are two washer-dryers for wet clothes and even a small fridge downstairs for convenience. The hosts are super generous with access to many amenities within the house. Our group immediately enjoyed the sauna after a long day of driving. Tucked away in a cathedral of redwood trees and situated right on the creek, this is a true "Shangri La."" - Cynthia, December 2017

"This is a lovely home right next to the creek--perfect for kids to splash in while adults enjoyed the gorgeous view from the deck or the creek-side chairs. My husband especially liked the smoker-grill on the deck, and I liked the big outdoor table where we could have al fresco lunches with the whole family. The setting under the towering redwood trees and dappled views of the creek can't be beat.The beds and bedding were very comfy, the appliances were great (I appreciated the washer and dryer and coffee grinder in particular), and having three bathrooms was also nice. The area is good for accessing the beach (we went to Jenner), redwood hikes (Armstrong Woods), and the nice town of Guerneville. Safeway is about a 15-minute drive from the house. We had to laugh about the recommended bakery in Cazadero, which we visited on Monday at lunch; it turns out it's only open on Friday evenings--we heard the pizza there is great. There was live music in Guerneville as well, a fun summer activity." - Heather, August 2017

"This place has it all! Beautiful decks to enjoy the creek side view by the redwoods, games, a very well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and much more! The Location is far enough to feel secluded but close to town for any needs. We spent most our time outside relaxing with the perfect weather we had. Great vacation spot any person would enjoy. Highly recommend!" - Andrea, July 2017

"This is a great destination for a family retreat to get away from the hustle bustle of city life. Great memories are created in this house cabin." - Donny, June 2017

We had never been to the area and this home was centrally locates to all the activities we were interested in. The home was clean and stocked with all your home ammenities, we lacked for nothing. The view from the deck was beautiful. The area was quiet and relaxing.
I was in touch on the way out with suggestions for groceries and such, Jordan was very quick and helpful.
Thank you for allowing us the use of your house!

I've been renting places in Russian River for over 20 years and this was one of the best. First and foremost the beds were really comfortable. Wish I knew the brand of mattress and pillows...would love to have them in my own home.

The house was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The best part was the fact that it is right on Austin Creek and there's a very nice beach area for relaxing. I highly recommend this rental!!

Had an absolutely wonderful stay. Everything was perfect. Stunning location, fun Russian touches throughout the home..including music that played throughout the home. My kids loved playing in the river, we even had a guest visitor, Lucy...a very friendly local golden retriever, who joined us every day to explore the river.

Our family had a wonderful time at this cabin. Location was easy to find. Nice to have parking for four cars. Cabin was well maintained & owners had everything you needed for an enjoyable time. Creek was perfect for grand-kids to play in. Close to beaches.

We rented this house primarily due to its location in relation to the house the rest of our family was renting, but everyone ended up on our beach and in our outdoor space most of the time. We all can’t wait to come back!

Escaping the hustle and bustle of the city, we were ecstatic to come home to this gem; a secluded house nestled among the mystical Redwoods and along an exclusive portion of the Austin Creek/Russian River. The house was incredibly spacious; perfect for families or couples. The private deck got perfect morning sun; with hammocks to lounge on, wild orchids to gaze at, and the most crystal clear running water just steps down. It was so convenient as well that the kitchen was stocked with goods and cabinets with toys for children because we were actually stuck there without a car. We have never relaxed with such bliss as we did lounging in the creek. Would absolutely return in a second and highly recommend this place to anyone that wants the true healing sensation provided by the Redwoods/Austin Creek.

The Dreamwood cabin was perfect for our family vacation. Access to the Austin Creek is the perfect way to spend your afternoon and to end the evening by relaxing in the sauna! Location was great, with the Russian river beaches only 10-15 minutes away, or ocean views in the other direction. Highly recommend this getaway to anyone!

Perfect place to relax and unwind, the view and access to the creek is wonderful and the way the house is setup allowed the kids to have their own space and the adults to have theirs. It was great!
