Sequoia Beach Dreamery

Top-Rated Getaway, Relax and Unwind

Description

Sequoia Beach Dreamery's reviews say it all. For example: "We had a magical week at The Dreamery -- it exceeded every one of my expectations. Very peaceful, relaxing, and playful. We found our coastal getaway!"

A few steps from the beach on pristine Big Austin Creek, "The Dreamery" is the rare vacation rental where you feel like an honored guest. The attention to detail is legendary and the owner seeks to delight guests in every possible way.

Tastefully decorated in the Craftsman style with Zen touches and Japanese art, this lovely cottage features a well-equipped kitchen, luxuriously remodeled bathroom with radiant-heat floors, comfy beds, romantic wood-burning fireplace and many modern amenities.

Large picture windows frame tranquil water and redwood forest views in every room. Light, airy bedrooms open onto a spacious private deck overlooking the creek and great swimming hole. The private 1/2 acre is graced with soaring old-growth redwoods, generous light, and serene Japanese garden. Enjoy the unique hot-water outdoor shower, star-gazing from the hot tub, and - most importantly - intimacy with nature. The year-round creek is home to protected steelhead salmon, statuesque giant blue herons, kingfishers, egrets, ducks, and playful river otters.

Guests love summer at The Dreamery, but the off-season is equally glorious. Summer visitors give way to waterfalls, and the atmosphere becomes even more peaceful. If you enjoy gentle pursuits like romancing, reading, writing, and relaxing, you'll love The Dreamery.

Sequoia Beach Dreamery is located in the village of Cazadero in the Russian River/Sonoma Coast resort area - just 90 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge.

An authentic "Country Store" and acclaimed coffee shop and bakery are a quick walk or bike ride away. It's a short drive to the wild and scenic Sonoma Coast where the Russian River meets the mighty Pacific Ocean. Even when the coast is socked in with fog, you'll appreciate our sunny "banana belt" weather in this protected microclimate. World-class wineries, restaurants, spectacular scenery, Armstrong Woods Redwood Preserve (tallest tree: 310 ft; oldest 1,400 years), Northwood golf course, Jenner By-the-Sea, and the breathtaking Sonoma beaches are all within reach.

The Dreamery offers a private retreat from which to explore this gorgeous part of California. Outdoor activities abound in this eco-adventure paradise. However, once you get here, you may not want to leave (ever!).

SPECIAL: Save the $100 Cleaning Fee. Leave the home reasonably clean (more or less as you find it) and we automatically waive the $100 fee for Cleaning & Linens.

SPECIAL: Enjoy an In-Home Massage at reduced rates from The Dreamery's certified and experienced massage therapist. Inquire for details and rates.

"The name Dreamery is fitting - Can also be called "Heaven""

5 of 5

The place itself is amazing. Nature, trees, the quiet atmosphere, the river (more about that below) We had a wonderful three days at the Sequoia Dreamery and my only wish it lasted a bit longer. The Good - The scenery and the peaceful mood this place sets on you.The house itself is big, very well taken care of, two bedrooms and full of atmosphere. It doesnt feel like a place that people come to visit and leave It feels like well, like home. Cozy (and big) living room, with TV (+Netflix), two huge bedrooms, beautiful porch with a view of the Sequoia trees around the house. Fully functional kitchen. Everything you might need Its right there. Just see the photos, I think it speaks for itself. The Bad - Be ready ZERO cellular connection. If you rely on GPS, you have to turn it on while in the house where there is Wi-Fi. Regarding food There is a lovely bakery just 2 min from the house, but there is not much selection of food variety there. BBQ equipment is there if needed.One small thing that bothered me: It is very easy to see that the owners of the house care for it. There are all these little notes around the house to help you find what you need or instruct you what to do. At first, its kind of fun and cute but with time it made me, personally, feel a bit like Im in a museum surrounded by instructions on what to do and how. Im sure some people love it; others need it, and its a silly thing to mention, but.. Thats how I feel, so why not say it? :)And the Amazing Everything. Really. The hot tub outside the house, in a secluded corner. Just next to it is a shower that comes out of a tree! Your private beach. And the river! Crystal clear water, just in front of the house. There is a strip of water, but enough for you to find a spot to swim. There are few holes that are quite deep and after a hot day, few minutes in these cold, crystal clear water... Absolut Heaven. Go there. Now. I know I will.

"Christmas in the Redwoods"

5 of 5

For Christmas this year, my wife and I decided to fly out to San Francisco from Washington DC to spend the holiday with our middle daughter, who works in Berkeley and did not have enough time off from work to come to the East Coast where most of our family currently resides. We chose the "Dreamy" based on the excellent reviews of previous guests, and we were not disappointed. The weather in late December is obviously cold, so we did not expect to partake in the many warm weather activities that are available at the cabin in the Spring, Summer, and early Autumn. We liked the location for its tranquility, and for me, the ability to attract and watch several varieties of birds (Juncos, Steller's Jays, Varied Thrush, Acorn Woodpeckers, Belted Kingfisher, Chickadees, and Towhees). We also used the cabin as a base to explore the back roads of Cazadero, Guerneville, Jenner, and the Russian River area in general. We were able to easily traverse the single lane road to Fort Ross (early Russian settlement dating back to 1812), Point Reyes State Park, Olema, and even a trip to Santa Rosa to watch Star Wars. Nice scenery in all directions, and colorful decorations at this time of year. Since we were at the cabin over four days surrounding Christmas, some places normally open were closed for the holidays, but even so, Fort Ross and Point Reyes offered us excellent places to find quality attractions that were open and catering to the Christmas traveler. The owner of the Dreamery cabin has gone to exceptional lenghts to provide a home with all the amenities of one's own house--a virtual home away from home.

Manager Response:

Thank you for sharing a review!!! And we're so glad you enjoyed the holidays at Sequoia Beach Dreamery - it's been a guest favorite for many years. And we appreciate that the owner makes little changes and upgrades each year and absolutely wants guests to feel at home here.

I hope we'll see you again!

"Very relaxing!"

4 of 5

We came here after our wedding for some much needed down time. VERY relaxing. The water was pretty low but you could still swim (cold though). Loved the hot tub & outside shower. Def an older home but everything else out weighs the few cons. We liked it so much we booked an extra night.

Manager Response:

Hello and thank you for sharing a review with future guests!
And, congrats on the recent nuptials! We love Sequoia Beach Dreamery for an escape and it sounds like it's just what you needed.

Thank you!

"A serene oasis among the redwoods!"

5 of 5

This is our second stay here and it is truly a magical place. The home has all those extra touches that make it feel like a second home, rather than a vacation rental. The owner has really thought of everything and obviously has an eye for design and creating beautiful spaces. We brought another couple we are great friends with and once we parked, we never left. We relaxed on the deck with frosty drinks, snuggled into big comfy couches and laughed through a wonderful Netflix comedy, waded in the creek and built rock towers along the beach, and spent our favorite hours being lazy in the hot tub which sits right next to most amazing outdoor shower we have ever seen. The home is surrounded by meditation gardens and heart shaped stones, and the deck has tons of room to enjoy the sunshine, or set an outdoor feast up on the picnic table. I can't say enough about The Dreamery. It's a little slice of Zen heaven and worth every penny. Thank you Andrew for sharing this special home.

Manager Response:

Thank you, so much, for sharing this review with future guests!
We love The Dreamery and hope everyone has a chance to experience the same tranquility you describe!

"ZenSATIONAL !!! A State fo relaxation amoung the sequoias and nature"

5 of 5

My husband and I spent our 25th Anniversary here, when we arrived we were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and 2 wine glasses, and a masseuse! her chair already set up on the deck.. Having the massage in the quietness was the most awesome thing we have experienced, only the sounds of birds, and the trickling sound of the babbling brook near by made this experience exquisite! With a breathtaking view of the river, We were in heaven, the entire stay was fabulous. The beds were comfy and the place was well kept and neat and tightly.. The grounds were so relaxing and a perfect conduit for meditations.Andrew is an awesome host, and this place has all the comforts of home. The hot tub is nestled among a hollowed out sequoia and there is wonderful warm out door shower near by. While playing in the river I came upon two otters nuzzled up in a small crick of a rock, they peered out at me with the sweetest look. I also discovered a huge bull frog sleeping among the ferns in the river bank, it was interesting to watch the crawdads propelling themselves at the bottom of this clear as glass slice of heaven.We didn't want to pack up and leave and we definitely were not ready to go back to the bay area. the near by area of Guerneville and Monte Rio have tons of very good restaurant's, We ate at several breakfast lunch and dinner and all were 4-5 stars! .

Manager Response:

Thank you for sharing your experiences!!!
Sequoia Beach Dreamery is a magical place to encounter and commune with the Sequoia Redwoods, riparian habitat and nature as a whole. Wishing you a belated Happy Anniversary and many return trips to our slice of heaven!

"Hearts on the wall, spa for the body and books for the mind."

5 of 5

My son and I had a relaxing visit to this beautiful place. We hiked the nearby parks and returned to quiet, conversational evenings. It was a wonderful way to reconnect and hear about all the happenings from the previous school term. Andrew was very aware of our needs and what might be important to us for a pleasant stay. The lack of cleaning fee was refreshing!

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for sharing your experience with future guests! The Dreamery is an exceptional place to escape the world's responsibilities and unique in not charging a cleaning fee if the home is left in good condition. It's a peaceful place.

"Beautiful spot"

4 of 5

The accommodations were older than led to believe. It smelled like an old cabin. The full bath had a small shower with poor lighting. The second half bath was way back in the laundry room - weird. But the location was beautiful. The bird seed was a cute idea. There were plenty of dishes, pots, knives, etc. for the 4 of us. Bedding and towels were great. OUr bed was very comfortable. The deck was used every day. It's not as secluded as the pictures make it appear to be. There was a family across the creek that had lots of young, noisy, but laughing children. It wasn't a bad thing, just don't expect serenity in the middle of summer. We also came home with hot tub folicitus due to the sanitizer on the hot tub not functioning properly.

"Serene"

4 of 5

This home is perfectly tucked into the towering redwoods and has a cabin/spa serene atmosphere.We stayed two weeks.Close enough for fun and great food, yet far from the city.The only change I'd suggest; It would be nice if toilet paper was provided.merci`

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for the review! We think it's a great location as well - especially the proximity to Austin Creek. To answer your comment about the toilet paper - for homes on septic systems we have to be extra mindful of what products are used. The toilet paper at The Dreamery is septic system-friendly.

Thank you for staying with us!

"We enjoyed the seclusion."

4 of 5

Off the beated path. Relaxing and secluded, with towering redwoods and creekside beach. You will want to while away the days in the outdoor beauty of your surroundings the cabin is Small but comfortable, fifties fixtures and feel. One of the two beds is only a double, not a queen, but it is quite comfortable. If you are not planning to cook or gnosh, be prepared to drive a bit to find foodie amenities. Not a place for those seeking luxury, only serenity.

"A magical place"

5 of 5

We spent two absolutely spectacular nights at the Dreamery. The owner, Andrew, has really made it a special place in the middle of the towering redwoods. The house is beautiful and meticulously decorated, and the setting is serene and magnificent. The hot tub located on the side deck offers both privacy and a great view of both the night sky and the river just off the deck. We relaxed, cooked and ate great food, and enjoyed some wine both on the spacious deck and by the cozy fireplace. The stay was much too short, and would have stayed for much longer if we had had the chance.

"wonderful relaxing winter getaway"

4 of 5

i would like to give 4.5 stars- not quite perfect, but very special. my honey and i really enjoyed our stay- the house is cozy and very comfortable, the views of the river and redwoods are amazing, the outside shower is incredible, nestled between the redwoods. i was surprised at how close the neighbors are, but never saw or heard anyone (i assume the nearby houses were empty since it's the off season). don't miss walking down to Raymond's bakery for baked goodies, and music/ food on friday nights!

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thanks for sharing a review - we appreciate feedback!

Sequoia Beach Dreamery is located in a big bend of Austin Creek. Only one other property in is this bend and its people are rarely around. Most guests comment about how private it feels at the property. Even though you are tucked under majestic redwoods and surrounded by nature this is considered a residential neighborhood. We're glad you had a great time and were able to catch the live music and yummies at Raymond's on a Friday night!

"Great sisters get a way"

5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at house for 3 days. It was a great place. Loved the trees and the creek in back yard. The surroundings were just so relaxing and being moms away from the kids the quiet was much welcomed. Bakery walking distance so they fresh pastries every morning were awesome. This was a great place after a day of sightseeing and wine tasting to come back a night and enjoy our chosen bottle of wine and unwind. It was so nice also to have a bottle of wine there when we checked in.

Manager Response:

I'm so glad you and your sister enjoyed your stay at the Sequoia Beach Dreamery! It is a wonderful place to relax, unwind and recharge. Did you know that Raymond's Bakery hosts a Pizza Night with pizza, beer and wine on Friday nights? I haven't had a chance to check it out, but I've heard great reviews from our guests.

Thank you for staying with us!

"Redwood Serenity"

5 of 5

The Dreamery is a wonderful sanctuary among towering redwoods. How amazing to spend time among these towering trees. The owner has provided everything one needs for a nice vacation: a well-equipped kitchen, cozy fireplace, great hot tub, washer and dryer, cozy fireplace, and more. The area is easily accessible to the Sonomoa Beach Parks and the many winereys. We especially enjoyed Duncan Mills: The Blue Heron for dinner and Cape Fear for breakfast. September weather was cool in the morning and sunny and warm during the day.

"A wonderful sanctuary among towering redwoods" - Well put! It sounds like you made very good use of not only the home, but also our local treasures. Thank you for including the photo!

"Total relaxation"

The Dreamery was exactly what we needed for some serious rest and relaxation after 5 days in Vegas! We managed to get out a couple of days, into Guerneville, Duncan's Mills and Jenner but found that we felt so much at home that it was so easy to stay at the house and sit on the deck just chilling. If you are looking for total relaxation from your holiday, then Sequoia Beach Dreamery is just the place to head for.

Manager Response:

I'm glad you were able to venture out to get a taste of what the Russian River area has to offer. Sequoia Beach Dreamery is the perfect setting to renew and recharge!

"So close...yet so far away..."

5 of 5

My new husband and I were looking for a relaxing place for our honeymoon that didn't require a lengthy plane ride or long drive in the car. After the hustle and bustle of a wedding, we were looking to relax as soon as possible. With that said, the Dreamery was an ideal destination. The short drive from the Bay area is scenic with an opportunity to visit several quaint towns on your way. Upon arrival at the Dreamery, we couldn't help but feel at peace! The redwoods, creek and gardens were all around us. We were a short drive to the ocean for the beach experience and also a short drive to Guerneville for more redwoods, river excursions and groceries. It was a perfect way to start our new lives together and to get away from it all...without being too far from our Bay area home! If you are looking for a true relaxing, rejuvenating place to go, this is the spot!

We used the great map & found the house without a problem. we were very pleased with the home when we walked in it felt so cozy, & inviting, Almost like it was saying to us ," Well welcome home ,where have you been? I have been waiting for you!"The beds were so comfy, & the great view right out the back sliding door of bedroom. Every thing You can think of is there, Just like you would have at home. We Had our Breakfast out on the covered deck so peaceful.The house is very Privet & we so enjoyed the Zen garden as well. You have your own Beach,along the austin Creek, we had a lot of fun just watching the birds, & trying to find the best Heart shaped Rocks.

"Renew and Refresh @ The Dreamery"

5 of 5

A peaceful and quiet retreat hidden among the Redwood and Sequoia's. Every attention to detail has been addedd to assure your comfort. A very well equipped kitchen to pleasantly furnished rooms with nice linens and plenty of towels. Everything is very well maintained and just the view from the deck will keep you at the Dreamery. A Zen like garden provides tranquility as the hot tub relaxes you.We will definitely return to this property.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for sharing photos and a review! The Stellar's Jays are a hoot to watch - especially when squabbling over a tasty morsel - and we love the Dreamery too. We'll see you next trip!

"Another fabulous vacation at The Dreamery"

5 of 5

The Dreamery is such a lovely vacation home. No detail is overlooked, and the owner is a thoughtful and gracious host. The home is comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen, space to store food, and a lovely table overlooking the deck with a view out to the creek beyond.The property is quiet and allows for relaxation and reflection. It is right on austen Creek, and there is a large, sunny deck that overlooks the most wondrous bend in the creek. There is a lovely hot tub and outdoor shower -- very novel! And there is a peaceful zen garden at the front of the house that is visible from the living room. It is a very comfortable house for 4 people, stocked with everything you could need. And the owner has decorated the home using art and decor from Japan. The effect is peaceful and relaxing in the extreme. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Hi!

"A peaceful holiday in the redwoods!"

5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed at the Dreamery, and it gets better every time. The previous two times were in the summer and they were wonderful; walking the creek and hiking in the redwoods. Winter brings a whole different feel to the home; more wildlife (we saw deer, great herons, and a host of bird species), quieter surroundings and the redwoods in the fog is as dramatic as you can ask for. The owner, Andrew, has provided everything you could possibly need for a relaxing week's vacation. And at the end of the day, sitting in the hot tub under the towering redwoods and stars, well that just makes it perfect.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for sharing a review! We're so glad you took a chance and visited the Russian River during the winter... As you said, so well, it's a whole different experience with more wildlife and fewer people out and about. And the Dreamery is a perfect spot to soak it all in!

"It's all about the redwoods"

4 of 5

The redwoods on the property made the Dreamery awe-inspiring. The bend in the creek helps too. It's a great, peaceful base for exploring everything in the area. We'd go back in an instant. The outdoor shower was wonderful. The only drawback for us was that the hot tub is set at too high of a temperature to stay in for more than 10 mins. We tried adjusting the temperature but it needed longer than the hour we tried. Other than that, everything is a positive.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for the review - and I agree! It's a perfect spot! I'm one of those folks that can't sit in a hot tub for more than a few minutes at a time... If you come back for a visit - let us know and we'll ask the cleaner to turn the temperature down a few degrees. Most folks want it as hot as possible, so we try to accommodate!

"A relaxing honeymoon retreat"

5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We loved the fact that it is so close to San Francisco, where we live, but felt like it was a world away. It was so very relaxing to spend time everyday in the hot tub and watch hawks soar above the trees. Everything was well stocked from the kitchen to the book shelves. One of the best parts was that it is a pet free rental, very hard to find, but very important when someone has an allergy.We arrived on a chilly day, too tired to do anything but crawl into the very comfortable, bed warmed by hot water bottles.

Manager Response:

Hello!

My husband, four year old daughter and I had an amazing time at the dreamery. The home was so comforting, the views of redwoods so spectacular, the creek so bracingly cold and the hot tub so wonderfully relaxing, we all can't wait to return. My daughter keeps saying, "Mommy, wouldn't it be great it we could live in that cabin in Cazadero?" Yes! What a change from New York City! Thank you.

Manager Response:

Hi!

We agree! We all want to live in this cabin in Cazadero! But only if the owners continue the amazing and welcoming set up each time we arrive!

We had a blissful weekend at this sweet spot. The hot tub was tucked in between these amazing Redwood trees. The creak was soothing, cool and refreshing.

"A Tranquil Escape back to Nature & Each Other"

5 of 5

Nestled in the redwoods along the creek, this home offers a romantic get away from the rest of the world yet, if you want (or have to) you can still stay electronically in touch with it. Peace and Tranquility can be found both inside and outside of the home and the surrounding area and activities to be found. These include the front yard Japanese garden, the large rear deck, the creekside beach area, the hot tub, the living area, bedrooms, the many wineries in the area, hiking in the surrounding parks or in the surrounding area. There is much to discover and rediscover about yourselves, and the area. We prepared and ate all of our meals at the house utilizing the kitchen and outdoor grill and enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor dining spaces. The kitchen provided everything we needed. The kitchen does not have a dishwasher, but doing dishes together does help you to slow down and do things together. The owner is very courteous and interested in the needs of the guests and even responded to a recommendation I provided regarding kitchen lighting after our first stay.This was our second stay at The Dreamery, and our returning for a second only a few months after our first stay in early December speaks volumes for how much we enjoyed our stay. On our first visit, we arrived in the early evening darkness and were unable to really see and appreciate the beauty that revealed itself to us in the morning. The beauty of that first morning's greeting and those that followed will have us coming back again.

"Great Private Beach"

We loved our stay at the beach dreamery. It was recomended by my cousin who also stayed there. The private beach and hot tub were awesome. The kids loved playing in the creek and exploring the grounds and the adults loved the peaceful quiet and natural beauty of the place. Eating outside on the back porch overlooking the water was the best part.

The house was clean, luxurious and affordable. The drawback was having to stop in guernville to get the key. Other than that, it was truly a wonderful place to stay.

What more could you want!

I hesitate to tell people about this wonderful place. So serene, calming,well designed and equipped! We knew the moment we arrived that this was going to be one of our best vacations ever, and it was. The location - to us - was perfect. Not far to the ocean, and not too far to wineries, town, scenery. We took off our shoes and walked in the creek, picking rocks, exploring, just like we did when we were kids. The bakery has great breakfast fare, awesome pizza. You can take hikes nearby as well. We took road trips and each day looked forward to going back to the Dreamery each day. Oh, wait - did I mention the outdoor shower and hot tub?

This place instantly felt like home. Every morning we would make a pot of coffee, sprinkle bird see and watch the finches play. At night we would build a fire and cozy up round the fireplace. Also the.hot tub at night is amazing. Over all I would say it was all the little touches and moments that make you feel right at home. Thank you for sharing your space with us.

"Perfection!"

5 of 5

My fiance and I were in need of a very relaxing, quiet vacation and when we found The Dreamery we knew we had found the perfect place! However, when we got there it was so much more than we had expected! From the robes hung in the closet for us, the cup of birdseed for the birds that like to spend time on the deck, to the warm water bottles in the bed - it was all the little extra touches that made The Dreamery so special. The house is immaculate and has been updated with great care, and the owner and rental company are extremely helpful, caring, and amazing. I would strongly recommend a stay at The Dreamery to anyone that needs (or wants) to restore a peaceful balance to their life! We look forward to staying at The Dreamery again in the future! **car rental is a must!!** *We recommend: A hike in the armstrong Woods, The Blue Heron restaurant, The Rivers End restaurant, the bakery that is down the road, a drive down the coast, horseback riding, a canopy tour, and (of course) wine tasting! There is a great little store that is on the way to the Blue Heron on the right hand side of the road (all the sign says is wine tasting) that is excellent - the owner can give you a map and guidance to great vineyards! Also, if you do want to go wine tasting make sure to stop at Porter Creek vineyards!*

"Best Feature is Location"

4 of 5

I was looking for a nice place to stay alongside a creek without the hassle of camping for my 3 and 5 year-old kids and this place fit the bill fairly well. Creek just steps away is very nice - shallow at the edge with a gradual deepening to about 5 feet, water is pretty clear and not very cold - warm enough for a quick dip. Lots of wildlife in the water - baby trout, crayfish, tadpoles and numerous water bugs that the kids loved. Location is good with lots of privacy -unlike many of its neighbors, this property has no one facing it across the creek. The noise from the adjacent highway is noticeable - occasional rumble of large lumber trucks during the day, but not a problem at night. Having Cazadero Bakery just 1/2 block away is convenient - they are very good. The house itself is a bet of a letdown. Interior is a dark, old and musty - the wood fire odor is pretty strong inside - but well kept and pretty clean. The best feature of the home is the outdoor shower and jacuzzi. So neat to take a shower under the redwood trees. Overall, I enjoyed my stay but would look for a nicer home in the vicinity next time.

"An Escape into the redwood forest"

5 of 5

We had hoped for some time in the deep woods, away from our more urban lifestyles, and also a time to celebrate our daughter's graduation from college with her MFa.The location was amazing. In the midst of giant redwoods that were only a touch away. The bedrooms all opened on to a deck and overlooked a rapid creek, fast enough to be clearn, but shallow enough to wade in or swim in where the water was deep. A family of ducks came quietly , almost magically every morning, and a giant hawk circled among the trees 100 feet up every day at 10:00 a.m. Across the stream were more giant redwoods. The subtle woodsy fragrance and stillness was magnificent. Even though the location is convenient to road and a little store/cafe nearby, the silence of the trees predominated. Loved every minute.

My wife & I visited for two nights. As we live in a city, it was nice to have a creek with a beach to ourselves.

"This was a safe, peaceful place to relax and unwind."

5 of 5

We are from the Midwest so the drive to the cottage was awe-inspiring. We managed to get to the rental agency late, yet they made provisions for us to get our keys with no extra cost or fuss. The wording on the contract made me a little suspicious of what we would find but we really liked the photos and the location sounded like just what we were looking for. (The not responsible for how you will find things when you get there section....) We were NOT disappointed when we got to the cottage. It was a beautiful, well kept get away tucked neatly into the redwoods just off a little turn in the road. I'll be honest; I did expect it to be farther off the road and more secluded at first. (The house sits just off Cazadero Rd. and there are houses across the street, one right next door and 2 or 3 across the tiny canyon in the back.) However, even though we had neighbors, when we were in our cottage, out on the deck in the back, or enjoying the fabulous hot tub under the canopy of endless stars, this little get away seemed to be miles from anyone. We felt safe and yet quite secluded in this sleepy little nook snuggled softly into one of the most beautiful places on earth! This is not a 5 star suite for all of you looking for wait staff and chocolates on your pillows in the morning, but you will travel far and wide to find a place as refreshing and rewarding as the Sequoia Beach Dreamery. It's a mountain cottage, with a friendly little kitchen fully stocked with all of the little things you didn't remember to bring - (Thanks Andrew!) When you first step into the Dreamery youre greeted by the smell of redwoods, clean crisp mountain air, a bottle of exceptional local wine, candies on your pillow, just the right dose of privacy, clean amenities and everything just the way the brochure promised. By the second night, as we approached the cottage after our visit to the wine country and coast, it felt like we were home. You'll love it at the Dreamery. We did!
