"A beautiful, comfortable place to stay in Guerneville, conveniently located as well"

5 of 5

I was impressed from the beginning with the responsive and friendly booking service. The cottage was even better in person than it appeared in the picturesa cute, homey place with all the amenities you could want, plus a lot of charming personal touches. It's just steps from downtown, but we spent a lot of time just relaxing at the cottage because we were so comfortable there. We would definitely stay there again.

"Peaceful Charm"

4 of 5

Tucked away on a quiet hill in a hidden neighborhood, just a short walk from the downtown Guerneville restaurants and shops, the Fairy Circle Cottage was perfect for our Thanksgiving getaway. A perfect distance from Armstrong Woods State Park, the majestic redwoods surrounding the cottage (and the deck's hottub) made this place magical and welcoming. Great backyard for our dog to roam safely, a well-stocked kitchen--everything we needed to cook, super clean and great attention to details. The living room fireplace was great-and the furniture was extremely comfortable. We'll stay here again because of the quiet, comfort and beauty. The neighbors were warm and welcoming, wonderful restaurants within walking distance-including a cool coffee shop. This place is designed for naps, resting, reading, sipping wine, relaxing in the hot tub, romantic conversations and clearing your head. Working with Russian River Vacation Homes is SO easy and uncomplicated-they make renting a vacation home so effortless-I would not use another company in Sonoma! We rent at least twice per year with them-and, have come to expect that their properties are at the highest standard.

Manager Response:

Hello!!!
And Thank You!!! We love you too and are so glad you took a moment to share how much you enjoy Fairy Circle Cottage and the Russian River Area! There's even brand new flooring in several areas of the house! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

"Loved Fairy Circle Cottage"

5 of 5

Over the past many years I've been to Guerneville many, many times but it had been 12 or so years since I've been there so wanted to stay a week. Russian River Realty could not have been a better partner with us to find a fantastic rental. I told them our needs, which included traveling with three small dogs, and simply could not have been happier with the choice of Fairy Circle Cottage. It could not have been more perfect for us. Better, I LOVE the Guerneville cemetery and it was in walking distance as was all of 'downtown.' The cabin itself was very well appointed and had some great features such as when in the hot tub looking up and seeing the redwoods that grow right around the cottage, the deck, in fact, is built around them. Loved the high speed internet as well as the cable - prefect selection of channels including HBO. The kitchen was very easy to use and well appointed. It will be a few years until we are back to Guerneville but definitely would love to stay at this cottage again.

Manager Response:

Thank you!
We so appreciate you sharing a review with future guests and onlookers! Fairy Circle Cottage is a delightful cabin and so close to everything "downtown" as you said! We're very excited to share that new floors are in progress right now!!! I can't wait to see the results.

"Great Location but Cottage Needs New Floor Covering and Bonus Ro"

3 of 5

My wife and I wanted to be in a Forest among beautiful trees and the Russian River area is gorgeous and filled that desire perfectly! The majestic Redwood trees are beautiful and awe inspiring! Armstrong Woods State Natural Preserve which is a very short drive from the cottage is a must see! Pay the entry fee and drive all the way to the end to Bullfrog Pond Campground for the full experience.We were very disappointed with 'Emergency' contact service when our entry code didn't work. It took over half hour in the dark and a bit of an attitude from the guy on the phone to get a code that worked. The last thing I expected from an 'Emergency' phone number was a voicemail...and then a long wait. To be fair, all other service from Kayte at the office was polite, friendly and terrific.Our favorite part of the Fairy Circle Cottage was the outdoor spa at the base of the trees. Looking up through the trees while relaxing in the warm bubbling water and staring up at the stars was fabulous! A+++! But, the underside of the spa cover had mold on it and smelled a bit of mold (that may be unavoidable due to the hot water combined with the cold outside temperatures, I don't know).The cottage itself was acceptable but in our opinion it has issues that would keep us from coming back. First and foremost, it needs new floor covering! The floor covering is pretty badly stained in numerous spots/areas. I'm not sure what the floor covering is called but it reminded me somewhat of the underside mesh of a carpet. It looks and feels kind of like someone put a carpet in upside down!The dcor of the main part of the cottage does not have a 'cottage' feel at all in our opinion. Also, the artwork in the downstairs Bonus Room is not for kids! The prints of a bra and a jock strap on one wall and the poster of Chicago (the musical) complete with blood splatters and a garter belt and stocking clad model are 'R' rated at best.We wouldn't stay at Fairy Circle Cottage again.

"Cute house!"

4 of 5

We enjoyed the stay at the house, but comparatively, was a bit pricey for just a weekend. The house was nicely stocked, the yard was cute and I loved that we could bring our dogs, they had a ball exploring the hillside (so did our son). Slight concern for small dogs, as there are lots of escape holes around the yard that should be secured better. The brickwork in the yard could be dangerous as it drops off next to the house, kind of unsafe with my 3-year-old and my leg in a cast, but everything was fine. Otherwise the home is comfortable, hot tub was good (what I'm told since I couldn't enjoy it with a cast), kitchen was well stocked and the location is nice. (The bathroom could use a shelf to put toiletries on, next to the sink.) We'd use your rental company again! Thanks!

"Quiet, Private Weekend Retreat"

5 of 5

Enjoyed this very private cabin for the weekend. Very quiet house on a very quiet street. Cabin is cozy (small) but perfect size for the two of us. Cabin was very clean and well stocked. Only minutes away from the center of town, it was perfect for being in the heart of the River area. We will stay there again.

"More suitable for 4 people; small but close to town"

3 of 5

I was the unlucky one of our group that got the couch. Not comfortable. It's a very cute place with a great patio and a nice hot tub. Lots of steep outdoor steps, so not aDa friendly. The bedroom with the twin beds is not connected--it's underneath, but it's not a place that small children could sleep. Only complaint re cleanliness--the spider webs--they were everywhere. They have the most amazing trees on the property. Although I thought the price was high--we were there on a holiday weekend. The master bedroom is very nice. It would be a perfect place for a couple with a couple of teenagers.

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for reviewing Fairy Circle Cottage! And thank you for letting us know about the pull out sofa - you are the first to comment on the comfiness, so we'll let the owner know!

And we try to describe the house as best as possible on our website, but you are correct - the 2nd sleeping space is a lower unit with a full bathroom but it can only be accessed from an exterior door. We try to find out as much as possible about the groups coming to stay at the house so we can help them pick the best house for their group.

Were there spider webs in the house? Or were they outside? They certainly shouldn't have been inside! But outside it's hard to keep them back *all* the time. Under the redwood trees we just have more spiders and webs than other places... If it makes you feel better - most of them are harmless garden spiders that dine primarily on mosquitoes and other flying bugs.

Well, I hope we see you again!

"Quaint cottage in great location."

4 of 5

We spent a pleasant weekend in this cottage. We enjoyed walking into town; however this might be a challenge for someone who has problems walking uphill.

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for reviewing Fairy Circle Cottage! If the hill is problematic for folks, we have the phone numbers for a couple local taxis that are happy to take care of the uphill direction for you!

"Quiet week away"

The cottage was comfortable and gave us the quiet break from a hectic schedule we needed. The deck area amongst the redwoods was a favorite spot to chill.

"Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer"

5 of 5

Great property. Nothing like having a redwood to look up to while lolling in the hot tub. We used the whole house which was perfect for us and our adult daughter and partner since we all were able to have some privacy with the two apartments. The rooms were homey and had character. Our only problem was a glichy gas stove that turned on at crazy times but the management sent someone up quickly to deal with it. Good location to do winery tours from.

Manager Response:

Hi!

Thank you for leaving a review for Fairy Circle Cottage! We're glad you had such a great time and were able to use both sections of the house! And thank you for letting us know about the stove issue right away so we could have it fixed! Feedback from guests keeps us in the know!

"perfect!"

4 of 5

What a sweet little cottage. The hot tub beneath the tree circle is the best. My family had a wonderful vacation in Guerneville last Novemeber. We stayed at Fairy Circle and it was perfect for the four of us.

Manager Response:

Hi!
We're so glad you enjoyed Fairy Circle Cottage! The house is actually named for that circle of redwood trees - called fairy circles or fairy rings...

"Highly Recommended!"

5 of 5

The cabin was just what we needed for a New Year's getaway from the City. The Cottage is conveniently located close to town, yet retains its seclusion and coziness - best of both worlds. We cannot wait to come back! Thank you to the owners and stewards for welcoming us into your home! Our dog had a blast as well!

Manager Response:

Hello!

Fairy Circle Cottage is a great getaway - tucked between redwood trees with great rays of sun slipping through... We're glad you and your dog enjoyed it!

"Great place for couples"

4 of 5

We loved our stay at Russian River. Fairy Circle Cottage is also a great house, but not for a family with young children. It's listed as one bedroom on the main floor with a separately accessed "bonus" room which is essentially a studio and the only access to this room is from the street. Because of this, we didn't use the room at all. The deck is awesome -- it's actually built around massive redwood trees. There's an 8 person hot tub that was also great. It was our fault for not reading the fine print, but knowing we had a young child, it would have been nice if the management company pointed out that the second room wouldn't be usable for us. Our son had to sleep on the pull-out couch which was a pain to deal with every day and not very comfortable. The house overall is comfortable, and very close to the river and beach. We ended up having a nice time.

"A Lovely week in the Redwoods"

4 of 5

We had a great time. The house was clean and all of the ammenities were there. We decided not to use the hot tub once we realized that we were in the middle of a neighborhood and our neighbors could watch us. The bathroom was quite small, but the rest of the house was very comfortable.
