Serene creekside home w/ private hot tub & deck - close to river/woods, dogs OK!

Relax on the banks of Fife Creek at this two-bedroom Guerneville retreat, a cozy, waterfront home with a private hot tub and deck, a dog-friendly interior, and a wondrous location close to wineries, breweries, and the lovely Russian River.

This private, two-level home is beautifully secluded on the shores of Fife Creek, less than two miles north of Guerneville's unique shops and eateries. Take majestic morning hikes through Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve half a mile north, spend the summer swimming in the Russian River at Johnson's Beach and Guerneville River Park less than two miles south, and taste the fruits of the region at Stumptown Brewery (two miles southeast) and Korbel Champagne Cellars (three miles southeast).

Warm, quiet, and adorned with natural wood, the living space is a respite for hikers, wine enthusiasts, and travelers in search of serene relaxation. Sip your morning coffee in the warmth of the wood-burning stove, prepare homemade breakfasts in the full kitchen, and read the paper on the deck with your dog curled up at your feet.

Spend summer days kayaking the Russian River, riding bikes over to Stumptown, and driving out to the wild ocean coast 14 miles west. You'll have all afternoon to sip cold beers on the cushioned deck furniture, flip steaks on the gas grill, and take soothing soaks in the private hot tub overlooking the creek. End each evening piled on the sofa, where you can browse the free WiFi and watch Netflix movies on the 42-inch flatscreen TV (guests must use their own Netflix account).

Lovely and remote cottage that was still close enough to civilization to put this city boy at ease. I booked last minute and the process was as easy as it can be, but it was a minor hassle to not find a fitted sheet for the bed downstairs. But everything worked well and was clean, and the deck out back was a great space to relax and enjoy the fresh air. Five stars for an excellent escape! Thanks for the hospitality!

Very secluded location at the end of a private road off Armstrong Woods road near the state park of the same name. Small creek behind the house with a hammock in the bank. Great back deck with sun shade and great privacy. Comfortable, large beds upstairs and downstairs. No A/C but plenty of fans and tree shade kept temperatures reasonable despite it being 93+ degrees outside. Biggest drawback to the cabin was the lack of comfortable furniture, both in the main living area and on the back deck. Also not much lighting in the living room and kitchen. We’d definitely stay there again but would love to see the indoor or outdoor couches and chairs updated with cozier pieces to relax in. Excellent location near Guerneville and the Russian River.

I brought my mom, sister, and aunt here for a Girls Weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday. It is in a GREAT location, at the end of a small road, right next to a babbling creek. It was cozy yet very open and spacious enough for 4 adults. We loved soaking in the hot tub and looking at the stars at night. The only things I didn't love were the lack of iron (we had reservations for a special celebratory dinner at River's End and needed to iron those special occasion outfits :)), only 1 beach style towel for the hot tub (didn't want to ruin those soft fluffy white bathroom towels), and the fan to the fire place didn't work. All small things. I would FOR SURE come back to this sweet cottage.

It is a beautiful cabin. I enjoyed my stay here. The first night was cold. The heater had not been turned. It was my first time renting a place with a fireplace. Next time, I will bring firewood. Now I know :)

This cabin was cozy and comfortable. We easily used the kitchen, spa, and bbq. The beds were comfortable; we walked to coffee ( it was about 30 minutes and a beautiful stroll). It was clean, and convenient to drive to shops, & restaurants.

Great location! Very cozy! Everything you need in the home including a hot tub. Only downfall, no air conditioning but other than that it was a great place to stay.

This home is so sweet and was perfect for our family with 3 kids and 2 babies. It’s so quiet and relaxing. We all loved the hot tub and the back deck. My kids played by the creek. We went to the redwood reserve nearby and had a wonderful time. This home was perfect for us.
