Forest Ridge

Description

Forest Ridge is a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired ranch house - full of natural light and surrounded by nature. Custom-built in 1975 out of redwood and glass, this architectural gem sits on just over 6 acres of private forest in West Sonoma County's Wine Country. With approximately 5,600 square feet of indoor living space, guests have ample room to spread out. The single level floorplan includes two living rooms, formal dining, casual dining, an impeccably remodeled kitchen and a spacious yoga studio (ask about a private yoga class). Outside, the solar-heated (sunshine dependent) in ground pool, half basketball court, BBQ, hammocks, and variety of seating and dining areas make it hard to decide - inside or outside?

It's all about the attention to details - vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, mid-century modern inspired décor and original artwork. Superbly comfortable bedrooms and remodeled bathrooms - two with soaking tubs, one with a travertine and marble walk in shower and heated floor - encourage relaxation and rejuvenation. Stroll through the property and say hello to the 141 redwood trees or try "forest bathing" in one of the three hammocks suspended in a grove. Whether you are looking for a corporate retreat or family adventure, Forest Ridge will steal your heart!

A lovely new hot tub just outside the master bedroom is available starting 9/21/18. Soak under the redwoods and stars or relax while the kids play in the pool!

The towns of Occidental, Freestone and Graton, home to bakeries, world renowned Osmosis Spa, local cheese, excellent restaurants and wineries, are all minutes from the house.

This is an incredible home in a gorgeous setting, with so much style and space and so many amenities! We particularly enjoyed the sauna and hot tub followed by a dip in the pool. Thank you River Homes!

We have a family reunion here for four nights from the new year of 2019. The company provided good information for the home, the photo were accurate. Checking was easy with lock box and the direction to reach the place was clear.
The home was extremely spacious, beds and shower all very comfortable. We have a very good time. Our only constructive criticism is that it felt like a rental home and lack those small touch that you get from vacation homes rented by the owners. There was no soap tablets for the dishwasher, no sponge to wash dishes either. There was not even shampoo and conditioner. We arrive on New Year day and fortunately one person in the group brought a small bottle of shampoo and conditioner which we all shared for the night before we were able to purchase some from Safeway. Other than that it was a nice stay but very expensive considering it was winter and the pool can not be used and there isn’t much to do around town.

From Russian River Vacation Homes:
Thank you so much for being our guests! It is our general practice to leave a new sponge and dishwasher tablets for all of our guests. We will double check the supplies at the house and make sure that they are visible, but they usually live right below the sink in the cabinets. Thank you for your notes - they help us understand what's "easy to see" and not. The home binder and the guest app also usually reference where items are stored in the house. We hope future guests will read the outstanding reviews from other guests pointing out all the fantastic details and curated items in the home - such as original art, a whole room for yoga (with mats, mat sanitizing wipes/spray, and some equipment), three (!) hammocks in the redwood grove, half basketball court (and ball), and too many more to list!
We do not currently supply shampoo or conditioner (this is included within the arrival instructions sent for the house), but we are considering adding this amenity in the future, so we are glad that you mentioned it. We're not sure which town you visited, but Occidental, Graton, Bodega Bay, and Sebastopol are all short drives from the home with unique shopping, restaurants, wine-tasting, and live music/events. We encourage future guests to ask us for recommendations and/or consult the area binder in the house and guest app if you need help finding things to do!
You were great guests! We would love to host you again down the road! :)

This home was spectacular. We stayed with a group of four couples and couldn’t have been more comfortable with the space offered at this property. Both the inside and outside were fantastic. Dealing with the rental company was easy, and everything was available at the house that we needed. A nice perk was that the mattresses and pillows were really nice. This house wasn’t decorated in a ‘cheap’ way, or seemed to be used as only a rental. It felt like a home. We would definitely suggest it to future travelers.

This is a beautiful property, exactly as advertised. I loved the mature redwoods in the back and front yards. Myself and partner, my parents, my aunt and uncle, and my cousin all shared the house, so we wanted plenty of space and plenty of bathrooms, and this house fit the bill. We never felt crowded in the slightest, and could have easily had a couple more people in the mix. There were a couple of well thought-out notebooks with suggestions on what to do and where to go in the area, and detailed instructions regarding the house. Location-wise, it's a short car trip in one direction to Bodega bay, or Sebastopol in the other direction. The house isn't walking distance to any restaurants or shops, if that is important to you, but there are some really nice small hikes you can take right around the property. The lock box was extremely handy, as we never needed to carry the house key or worry about people coming back to the house at different times.

The only two minor issues were that the hot tub wasn't hooked up (although I wasn't expecting a hot tub, so it was only a bummer when we saw it there and saw it wasn't running), and that it seemed that the trash didn't get picked up when it was supposed to, so the outside trash can was full when we arrived and we had to leave our trash bags tied up inside the house to avoid attracting animals. That wasn't really a huge issue for us, but we felt bad having to leave it for housekeeping to take outside.

Overall I would definitely recommend this house for any group that needs plenty of space, but still wants to all stay under the same roof. It really is a "Frank Lloyd Wright-esque" house, which is super cool. I know my family would stay again, and I hope we get the chance!

This was a fantastic option for a group get-away. It was spacious, clean, and in a beautiful area. The backyard with trees and hammocks is gorgeous. The kitchen is well stocked and large. The only issue we encountered is that the sauna didn't work, but it was otherwise an ideal spot.

Thank you for the kind words!! And, we're happy to say, the sauna repair was successful, so it's ready to go for the next guests.

I would firmly recommend staying here to anyone. The property was beautiful, and the amenities in the house were amazing. We very much appreciated the sauna, and the kitchen was very well laid out for many people to cook. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the summer, but even in the winter, sitting inside watching the rain was sublime. Communication was clear and excellent, and our stay could not have been better.

This place is really beautiful and huge! The hammock in the grove of trees was incredibly relaxing. All of the rooms are good sized and the yoga room is a great place to sequester the kids. The pool looked nice and was perfect for a polar plunge, but even the kids couldn't stay in for more than a compulsory jump. Compared to similar sized places in wine country this place was a great deal even with the cleaning fee.
