Glen Tara

Description

Glen Tara is Cazadero at its best! This out-of-the-way private creekfront vacation home features redwood paneling, open beam ceilings and a dining area with views of Austin Creek. Enjoy the sunny outdoor deck, complete with a gas barbecue and seating for outdoor dining, perfect for an alfresco dining experience. Set aside some time to relax in the spa, or take in the fresh country air while you explore Austin Creek or curl up with a good book while enjoying the sound of the creek's gurgling waters.

Glen Tara's large living room, modern kitchen, bright dining room, 3 bedrooms and 1 of the full bathrooms are all located on the upper level (the main living level). All 3 bedrooms feature Queen beds. From 2 newly remodeled bedrooms, there are lovely windows to the creek and hills. A skylight illuminates the third bedroom with natural light. The main bathroom has a tub/shower combo and is conveniently located between both main bedrooms. The second bathroom (with a shower) is the only room located on the lower basement level (mostly used for storage). There are interior spiral stairs leading to the lower level bath.

Outdoors at Glen Tara is wild and great for wandering year-round Austin Creek. Experience nature under the giant redwoods with your children or splash in the creek or swim in the swimming holes nearby. Walk down the lane to renown Raymond's Bakery for fresh baked bread or pizza. The Cazadero Performing Arts Camp is also within walking distance.

Our family of 4 along with our dog, really enjoyed our time at Glen Tara. The kids were thrilled to hang out in the hot tub in the rain. The kitchen was well appointed with everything needed. We really appreciated the owners having a basket of dog friendly towels and balls. Since it rained several days, the extra towels came in very handy. Everyone had comfy beds, the living room was a cozy hang out to watch a movie. We would definitely stay here again!

What an awesome place to get away from the bustle of city, school and work! We drove up early Friday, to be ahead of the traffic and had an amazing view. Had two adults and three kids, so we were concerned about space, but the rooms are all quite large and modern for a cabin! This is tucked away into a quiet slice of heaven. Cool nights were perfect for the hot tub. The kitchen is new, well stocked and the kids had fun baking & decorating cookies! There were tons of board games, books and running the creek was it’s own activity. I will definitely return, maybe for a grown up girls getaway next time. Thanks we needed this spot and so reasonable for a weekend getaway. We loved it!

Lovely home by the relaxing Austin Creek. Lots of space for small or large families. The home is right off a main road so you can hear and see the cars pass above the creek but doesn't take too much away from being in a beautiful area with fresh air, lots of birds (and other little creatures fun to watch). The Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve is a short drive away and a great way to spend the day close by. Glen Tara was a pleasant continuation to a peaceful day at Armstrong.

The house and furnishings are nice and kitchen well stocked, but the whole living room area is on a slant and it felt like we were at the Mystery Spot:) Loved the quality sheets and warm blankets as it was chilly at night (we wished we could have used the fireplace). Always happy when I can bring my dog along too! The creek was still running in September and we enjoyed hearing it in between cars, which unfortunately isn;t often - the road noise in Cazadero seems inescapable and just part of the package.

Glen Tara was a beautiful getaway, and having a creek to ourselves was a great alternative to being on the more crowded areas of the river. The bakery nearby was fun musical treat on Friday evening, and we always loved returning to a super cozy and comfortable home. Thank you for the great trip and being such a warm host!

Our family had a fabulous vacation staying at Glen Tara. It was quiet, secluded, clean, and had many amenities. We loved the creek, the spa, and eating on the deck. It was handy to have the washer & dryer as well as the kayak and beach towels, & chairs. We loved driving just a few short minutes to Gold Coast Bakery in Duncans Mills, the Friday night pizza & music at Raymond’s, and St. Colman’s outdoor church. Goat Rock Beach only 15 minutes away was also a favorite! We had a very memorable trip!

We stayed in the early spring and the place is just plain amazing. The house is located in Redwoods and there is a creek flowing right in front of the house. What more do you expect? You can just sit right there and watch the water flows by. The house is filled with all the stuff you need. There is also a spa which we really enjoyed during the nights. I wish i could spend more time there!

Lovely get away. The home is tucked in the trees, right next to a peaceful creek. It's like camping but with all the amenities of home. A well-stocked kitchen was perfect for making family meals, followed by hang out time in the cozy living room. We appreciated that the home is dog friendly and would definitely stay in the home again...hopefully soon!

We stayed at Glen Tara over Thanksgiving with 4 adults, 2 young children, and our dog. The house was perfectly suited to us. The living room is very nice and comfortable and the kitchen/dining room are spacious and well-stocked. We used the grill to cook the turkey and it worked great! The second bathroom is in the basement down a narrow, spiral staircase so keep that in mind when booking. The house is nestled in a very quiet area with redwoods all around and creek that our boys loved throwing rocks in. Our dog also loved running around! The only thing that we really wished the house had was a working fireplace. The staff at Russian River Vacation was very responsive, kind, and helpful - we got some great winery recommendations that were kid-friendly.

This is our favorite place to vacation. The house and scenery are amazing! From wonderful bbq dinners on the patio, reading by the Austin Creek, to star gazing in the hot tub! We floated down the Russian River and surfed in the ocean. Both times we were joined by curious seals! Saw a Bald Eagle in it's nest, beautiful Blue Heron, and loads of other amazing wild life. Plus the River Homes staff provide exceptional customer service. We plan to continue visiting Glen Tara home for many years to come!

"Hidden Paradise!"

5 of 5

Stayed here for three days with my friends, and we had a lovely time! Even on a day with patchy rain, we had several relaxing spots where we could sit inside or outside and enjoy the view of the woods and creek. Sunny days were spent sitting by the creek enjoying the sounds of gurgling water. The house is very charming, nicely decorated, and spacious. The hot tub and gas BBQ were icing on the cake. It also sits at the end of a private road, so there is a feeling of really being away from it all. Cazadero is a sweet, more remote area near a bustling resort town, so you have access to the Russian River and shops, restaurants, etc, while feeling like you are way out in the middle of nowhere.

Manager Response:

Thank you!
I think you said it perfectly! Glen Tara is a hidden paradise in Cazadero - so close to Raymond's Bakery for enchanting treats and Friday Night Music and Pizza! Thank you for sharing!

"Nice Place"

4 of 5

Nice place. Has everything you need for a vacation. In the middle of trees including redwoods. House is old (floor has small slant) but has lots of character. Laundry definitely a plus, as is the spa. Nice kitchen and a dining (and patio) table that seats 6! Walking distance to Cazadero (Raymonds) Bakery. Be sure to go for pizza on Friday night!

"Almost camping"

4 of 5

i brought my father to this vacation rental because he still wanted the feeling of camping but doesn't have an rv anymore. This place was perfect. Nestled in the woods with a stream all thought not running at this point due to the lack of water. It was most of the benefits of camping he was looking for with out the hastle. We were comfortable at this home. We did bring fans as we knew it would be warm and doesn't have air conditioning as we are used to. The place was nicely located so we could take day trips to the beach or guerneville easily. Dad even mentioned it might be nice to do a holiday there. So over all we were very happy. We also would come back again.

"Cazadero paradise"

5 of 5

My husband and I spent a relaxing week at Glen Tara with another couple and our two dogs. It was the perfect retreat and we enjoyed many days lounging by the creek, swimming and splashing in the cool water which was surprisingly deep in spots. We barbecued almost every evening and even hosted a dinner with several friends who live in Cazadero and Sonoma. The house is comfortable and had everything we needed. The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac and felt very private.Raymond's bakery is just up the road and we went several times to pick up fresh pastries in the morning, and even went there our first evening at the rental for pizza, beer and music. The only negative thing I can say about Glen Tara is that the shower in the second (down a spiral staircase in the basement) bathroom was no more than a trickle. Other than that it was a wonderful experience and we'll definitely stay there again.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Glen Tara! People often seem surprised when we tell them it's possible to swim in the creek.We don't have any notes about downstairs shower, so perhaps this was a temporary decrease in water pressure? The downstairs bathroom is on schedule to be remodeled this winter - what a great reason to come stay with us again and check it out!

"Lovely stay for a larger group"

5 of 5

We numbered five adults, one teenager and a large dog for a three day stay over NYE. The cabin was exactly as described, and sufficiently roomy for everyone to have their own space. The stocked kitchen, ample creekside outdoor space, and steaming hot tub were all put to good use. We would definitely stay here again!

Hi!
Thanks for your review! I'm so glad you (and everyone else in your group) enjoyed Glen Tara! It's a great spot... And a great place to get away from the rest of the world!

"Tranqil Getaway"

4 of 5

We really like the accomodations at Geln Tara. We stayed for Thanksgiving weekend and were very happy that the kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools we needed. So if you like to cook, this was a great rental. It was clean and cozy. There is a good bakery/pizza at the end of the street which is a good landmark as the road is hard to spot and the owner lives on the same road and is very friendly.The scenery is beautiful and quiet. My only knock is that it is remote and besides the bakery the nearest shop is 10 minutes away and Guernville is about a 20-30 dirve.

Hello!
Thank you for sharing a review of Glen Tara! It's a great property and the owners have done great work over the last couple years remodeling and updating the amenities... And we all love Raymond's Bakery, but wished they wouldn't close during the winter!

For folks staying in any of our Cazadero homes, it's good to note that there is a small-ish general store, post office and hardware/automotive shop in the town of Cazadero - and Raymond's Bakery a smidge closer to Hwy 116. Monte Rio and Guerneville a a longer drive for more shopping and supplies. Duncan's Mills is 5 to 10 minutes away and has some shops too... Most folks stock up on their way to the house and hide from the world! If you love being away from it all...

And a quick correction - the former co-owners of Glen Tara live on the same street as weekend/vacation visitors. You don't have to worry that someone's watching your every move! Enjoy - relax - chill in the woods!

"Delightful and Comfortable"

5 of 5

We loved hanging out on the large deck on the comfortable deck chairs, sipping wine and eating or soaking in the jacuzzi. It was quiet and pretty. The creek was delightful, and the woods were fragrant with pine. It got very cold at night so we really appreciated the excellent, easy to use central heating system. All the beds and furnishings were very comfortable, the kitchen complete and modern. We enjoyed the telescope and the interesting books around the house. The house was charming and comfortable on every level.

Manager Response:

Hello!

All that work to good use... The owners of Glen Tara have done some fantastic remodeling each year to make the house an awesome get away! This year included walling-in the third bedroom, more kitchen goodness and updates throughout the house. We think they are doing a great job and it sounds like yo agree!
