"Stay Away from This Unkept House!"

1 of 5

There were 5 couples in our group, all anticipating enjoying the house that was presented on the Internet. It didn't happen!It was a miserable experience. For a fee of $4,100.00 for 4 days, it did not come close to living up to the promises of the webpage.Stay away!

Manager Response:

Laguna Country Home has many reviews across many sites over many years, and they are almost all 5 star! We're not sure what the expectations were here, but these guests did not call us once for help during their stay. This is popular home, and the vast majority of guests are very happy with the house. Even those that run across an issue let us know, and we are happy to take care of them. We want all our guests to be happy and make every effort to address any concerns while they are in house. Laguna is an historic farmhouse, which is fully described on the website, but it's beautifully restored, furnished and maintained with love by the homeowner, so, I'm not sure what to make of this review except that it seems to not have been a good match between house and guest.

"Couldn't Have Asked for Better"

5 of 5

Stayed Feb 16 2017 to Feb 20 2017
Our family of 12 celebrated my 60th birthday at the Laguna Country House and couldn't have asked for better accommodations and locale to enjoy the Russian River Valley wine country. The home and views were stunning! The staff at Russian River Getaways were most helpful and easy to access. I would love to go back and spend additional time! Thank you!!!

"The most beautiful farmhouse style home we have ever rented surrounded by vineyards and gorgeous tr"

5 of 5

Commercial kitchen, well stocked, allowed the family and friends to eat in, Real fire places in living room and outside under a covered patio, and in two bedrooms. Decor is beautiful. Hot Tub. 6 bedrooms, 5 en suite. Half bath downstairs. Lots of stairs and steps. Not enough lighting on steps outside patio, but phone light works. The living room is so comfy and cozy, you just sink into the chairs, enjoy the fire and many windows and views from all windows.. Dining room is great view with wrap around large porch. Adarondak chairs on porch. Saw a Bald Eagle and Red Tail Hawk from front porch. Long driveway to house made you wonder what you were coming up to and then there was the beautiful home and we all said WOW!

Manager Response:

Thanks so much for the review! We're so glad you enjoyed the house and hope you'll be back soon. We'll take a look at the steps and make adjustments where needed or, as the grounds are extensive, make sure flashlights are available!

"Far exceeded our expectations"

5 of 5

Twelve of us (11 adults, 1 toddler) stayed here over Easter weekend and it was fantastic. There are no nearby neighbors and the house is far from the road, so you feel like you're all alone out there, surrounded by vineyards and beautiful views. This was a great place to spend a relaxing weekend with family. The bedrooms are large, there are plenty of bathrooms, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could need (there's even a few separate sinks for doing dishes!), there are lots of comfortable chairs on the veranda and great views from every direction... basically, this place has everything and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!

"Even better in person"

5 of 5

This property is beautiful, spacious and offers everything a vacationeer could want. The rehabbed Victorian home is surrounded on all four sides by a large verandah that overlooks a vineyard. The property is a short drive to the Russian River area as well as Santa Rosa so there are plenty of restaurants nearby, that is if you want to leave the property. We didn't. There is also a separate entrance to a suite for anyone who desires a little more quiet or privacy. Huge bedrooms, comfy beds and one spectacular bathroom with soaking tub with a view of the vineyard. Don't miss the hot tub!

"The Best Vacation House EVER!"

5 of 5

The whole experience at Laguna Country House was fabulous. We eight longtime girlfriends have been gathering from all over the country for almost ten years, and we exclaimed the whole time we were there that it couldn't have been more perfect. Gorgeous house with wonderful furnishings and lovely/whimsical collections. We felt like we were in a relative's mansion instead of a rental. The verandah was so expansive and the views fantastic - so quiet there, and wonderful gardens in the middle of beautiful vineyards. We talked and laughed and cooked and drank fabulous wine - some of us never left the property for three days! We could have stayed much, much longer. Thanks so much to Russian River Getaways - they were wonderful to deal with, had no complaints when we had to move the trip a day later than originally planned, and provided perfect instructions and tips for the area. If I had a big family, I'd love to live in Laguna Country House permanently. Come to think of it, these gals ARE family, and it was a fabulous gathering place for us. I think we'll be back!

"Fabulous wine country getaway"

5 of 5

We stayed with our children and grandchildren and it was fabulous in every way. The owners provided everything you could possibly want to make their home the perfect retreat. From 2 to 70 something...everyone loved Laguna Country House!

"Wine Country Oasis"

5 of 5

We stayed here with 5 couples which allowed each to have a private room/bath. Inside/outside this place was amazing. Very relaxing and beautiful, It was well maintained, clean, comfortable and well stocked with accessories, The solitude allowed us to relax on the deck every night or within the hot tub. There is not one couple that did not love this place. Minor quibbling were weak water pressure in the showers. As I type that though, it seems even more like nit picking considering how much we liked the place. Close to wineries, Santa Rosa, etc. I would build it up more but I want it available when we come back again!

"Perfect 35th Bday Celebration"

5 of 5

Laguna Country House was exactly what my wife and I were looking for to celebrate her 35th bday. The pictures don't do it justice, it is a large mini-mansion with great rooms. It easily held 6 couples and we never felt on top of each other. It has beautiful vineyard views from the wrap-around porch and the large patio area. We full intend on visiting annually.

Manager Response:

Thanks so much for your review! Laguna is wonderful, and I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to your visiting again every year. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"Wonderful weekend"

5 of 5

I hosted some friends for a weekend away in the wine country for my birthday. This house was perfect for our group. Many of the bedrooms are really like mini suites, with a great deal of privacy from each other. It really felt like our own little compound. The long drive from the road into the property opens up to the most wonderful home with a wrap around porch that offered magnificent views in every direction. The setting was in between two vineyards and was breathtaking. It is a comfortable and welcoming home, perfect for a group our size. I would highly recommend this home.

Manager Response:

Laguna is an amazing experience, and I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay so much. Many thanks for the review, and please come back soon. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

"So relaxing and beautiful!"

5 of 5

I had never booked a house on line so I was afraid of what I might be getting. The house was everything described and more. The sunset views from the spectacular porch were great. We even had service set up massages on our porch! It was clean and sooo relaxing. I would recoment this house any day of the week. It is also a little secluded so if relaxing amoung the vinyards is what your looking for this house is perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better 40th Birthday and girls get away weekend.

Manager Response:

Laguna is an amazing house, and we're so glad you enjoyed your Birthday stay. We hope you can return for another stay soon. Thanks for the review. -Rachel

"Beautiful Home!"

5 of 5

At the beginning of October this year we had the pleasure of renting Laguna Country House in Santa Rosa. We shared this magnificent home with 3 other couples for 4 nights. We are all road riders and were down from British Columbia to ride the Levi Leipheimer Granfondo road ride on Oct 5th. The weather was perfect as we were able to road ride from the house and then enjoy dinners each night dining on the outside back porch. We have rented houses for the last 4 years and this is by far the best one we have rented. We hope to return next year!

Manager Response:

Laguna is a treasure, and we're so glad you appreciated it. Thanks for the good review. Please do come back next year! -Rachel

"Very nice"

5 of 5

We have rented places on or near Russian River four years in a row to share with other friends from various places. This is the best house we have stayed in. Only disadvantage is that it is not on (or even really near) the river. But the views in vineyards and mountains from the 270-degree porch and deck are stupendous and more than make up for lack of a river view. Very private. Great ambiance. Spacious bedrooms. Tastefully appointed (nice art glass btw) and the kitchen is extremely well equipped for those who like fine cooking. If I could suggest two minor things to the owner: (1) see if you can find a way to increase water pressure in the green bathroom's shower upstairs; and (2) clear your wine out of the cooler and let others use it. (We in fact removed all your wine and replaced it with our own and then put yours back at the end, since the advertising says there is a wine cooler, but many folks would be reluctant to do that.) And, of course, lower the up-charge for the two extra bedrooms! They are terrific for those needing 6 bedrooms but too much more.

Manager Response:

Thanks for the great review, and we're glad you enjoyed Laguna. The river is only a few minutes away, at Steelhead Beach, so we consider it close. We'll check out the shower head and pass your wine request on to the owner. -Rachel

"Absolutely Wonderful"

5 of 5

We stayed here with a large group (11 of us) and we had so much room to spread out. The view from every vantage point was breathtaking; from the rolling country side at the front, to the sprawling vineyards in the back. We never used the formal dining room because it was just too beautiful not to enjoy the scenery from the outdoor dining area. Our last night we built a fire in the outdoor fireplace and ate while the sun set. We are already planning a reunion for next year!Some in our group went out exploring, visiting the nearby parks and woods, while others of us just took the time to recharge and relax around the house. No neighbors nearby so we were able to play music, drink good wine and BBQ/cook in the evenings. Nice to not have to worry about bothering anyone. The house inside is absolutely gorgeous. We paid for the tower rooms and each of those had their own bathrooms, TV and gas fireplace. 5 of the bedrooms came with luxurious robes which came in handy!I only had 2 small complaints and one was not enough towels and the other was the wifi was way too slow. A few of us needed to take care of some things for school and work, and it was frustrating how slow it was to download files and even email some documents. Other than that it was a memorable mini vacation.I guess my 4 year old nephew summed up everyone's feelings..."I want to stay here forever!"

Manager Response:

Thanks so much for your review and feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the house and hope you'll come back. The internet has been upgrade to solve the speed issue. The number of towels are based on what can be washed in the four hours between bookings. We often advised folks to pack a towel of their own, both for an extra and the spa. -Rachel

"A perfect getaway"

4 of 5

A beautiful private spacious location with warmth and character and a huge terrace. Lots of space for all guests, lovely light and great views from the front and back.The layout enable guests to have privacy which is greatVery homely feel with stylish interiorsa very pleasant surprise at the end of secluded woodland.If i have to be critical, the dishwasher could do with changing!The top room in the tower with african travel theme not consistent with the rest of the property. Lighter colours would make the room feel lighter and bigger, especially as it was the the smallest bedroom. Would definitely come back and stay here. You won't be disappointed.

Manager Response:

Thanks for the review, even the stretching to find something negative. We do hope you'll come back soon. -Rachel

"Plan a day to stay in."

5 of 5

This house was amazing. The designer had an eye for detail and left nothing to wish for. A chef kitchen, prep kitchen, indoor kitchen, outdoor kitchen and multiple sitting areas were wonderful. We used this house as a central location for all of our favorite sonoma wineries and it was perfect. The porch and surrounding views were especially wonderful with seating areas, a hammock and a beautiful outdoor eating area with a working hearth. The pictures absolutely sell this house short. Our party consisted of 4 adults, 2 toddlers, and 1 infant, and we only stayed for 4 nights. We kept a busy schedule and were out of the house all day everyday - definitely missed out on some of the charm. I definitely recommend staying longer than we did and plan on a day staying at the house. If available, we would book this house again.

Manager Response:

There are some new and better photos now!

"A wonderful time with our family in a lovely home!"

5 of 5

We were really impressed with the spacious and attactive home, and delighted that it offered sus uch a beautiful location at the edge of a vineyard.Almost everyone in our family made the remark that "the pictures really did not do this home justice." each room was beautifully apopointed and the kitch, dining room and living room were splendid. Most of all we loved the outside porces and decks all arounfd the house. We were at the home with our two older sons and their wives and children because our youngest son was being married. We all agreed that we would love tocome back again so the entire family could stay at the house.

"This house is simply awesome!"

5 of 5

Three 'best friends' couples stayed for the Memorial Day Weekend . . . Laguna Country House was simply beyond our expectations . . . the house, the setting, proximity to wineries . . . all hit a home run! We'll be back!

Thanks for the great review of this fabulous house. Please do come back soon. -general manager

"The perfect Sonoma getaway"

4 of 5

We rented the Laguna Country House for my fathers 60th birthday. It was the perfect house for the occasion. The picture does not do this house justice it is far better in real life. My boyfriend asked me upon arrival to the house, if I had understood that it was this great, and my only answer was no it exceeded all of my expectations. The secluded location with the wrap around veranda overlooking wine ranks and rolling hills was amazing. The interior of the house was very taste full and the three large bedrooms where super charming. The kitchen area and the barbeque area where great for cooking dinner and sitting in front of the fireplace playing cards in the evening in the wonderful living room was just lovely. The only downside of the stay was the fact that it was not very well cleaned, the veranda was full of muddy footprints and the kitchen floor was not cleaned at all. Make sure to point this out if you rent it so that this does not happen to you. I will most definitely recommend this house to my friends. It was the perfect house for the occasion and a true getaway!

Manager Response:

We're so glad these guests loved this home so well. It is an amazing property. The cleaning issues were a result of some unplanned construction work. We've instituted mandatory arrivals inspections to make sure this doesn't happen again. -rkl

"Fantasy Wine Vacation"

I am not sure I can describe this place in one sentence. This was one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. I hope to be back.
