Our rustic and eclectic cabin is surrounded by redwoods, walking distance from the river, and is a great place to unwind. It's a great place for kids and adults alike. Families will appreciate the swing set, the tree fort, children's books, beach toys, and built in baby gate. Adults will like the places to relax and look up at the trees, the proximity to wine country and the city, and the fun of making fires to warm them up. Everyone loves the river and the short drive to the ocean.

The space

The Blue House is cozy but functional with about 600 sq ft of space, newer kitchen appliances, and an open layout. There is one bedroom (with a queen bed). In the main room, there is a loft with a full size bed. There is also a pull-out trundle day-bed (i.e. 2 more twin beds).

Mostly what we love is it's location - convenience in closeness (a little more than an hour from SF), embedded in our favorite area of wine country (Russian River and Dry Creek), swimming, tubing, boating in the river, being surrounded by redwood trees and their ability to make you feel small, and proximity to the wild California Coast. It's such a great base for exploring. But the house is a place where you can slow down. There is fast internet if you want it, a tv and stereo, but it's also great for just building fires in the fire pit and hanging out in the hammock.

The house isn't totally secluded, but it's all fenced in and feels a little like your own world. The house that it backs up to very rarely has people in it (I think we saw them two weekends last summer). Not many people drive down the street. It's around the corner from any other houses on the street so you get a nice view of the hills from the kitchen and dining room areas.

Oliver's place was great for our weekend away. The house is located in close proximity to a ton of different vineyards and located under massive redwoods. The house has an excellent soundsystem, nice kitchen, and a great book collection. There is a little store around the corner that has all you need (coffee at 6am) and there is a great fire pit and outdoor stove. All in all, a great home and we will definitely be back.

We are so thrilled with our stay at The Blue House once again! We were first here a couple years ago for our honeymoon, and this year we brought our son with us for a family stay after a wedding. It is such a wonderful space - so charming, with all the amenities you could need. It is minutes from lovely hiking spots, and great restaurants, and is a short walk down to the Russian River. The home is cozy, with a large yard perfect for children - we enjoyed making a fire in the outdoor fireplace each night, and taking baths in the claw foot tub. Not far from downtown Guerneville, and still so secluded and private. Hosts Oliver and Eleanor are lovely and have created a wonderful space for a romantic getaway, or a family retreat. We look forward to coming here for many years.

The Blue House is such a great experience. We truly enjoyed ourselves, and easily felt right at home. From the wagon and toys for the river to condiments and spices in the kitchen, Oliver has truly thought of everything to make our get away perfect. We were able to enjoy a BBQ under the stars. Complete with fire pit. My two year old enjoyed the swing set and "hidden" tree fort. And Hubby and I enjoyed coffee, nice and cozy in front of the new fireplace. Oliver was great at communicating with me and if he allows we will definitely be back.

The blue cabin is lovely. I was able to pair my phone to the 360 speaker system and enjoy my tunes in surround sound. The location is close to nice wineries but is secluded enough for privacy. My points of hardship were: the shower is part of a claw foot tub, which for me was not comfortable to shower in; and there are several check out tasks that are required which took longer than planned to complete and made out check out late. Overall, this was a good stay.

Cute, secluded, great yard, and beautiful location! Be aware that there's not a ton of privacy in the space (a curtain separates the bedroom, and the loft bed is exposed), but as long as that suits your needs it's an amazing spot. Thanks Oliver!
