Ruel October 2021
This is a very beautiful and quiet spot, above all the busy-ness of Guerneville, looking across serene forested hills--so in the trees, but sunny and with a big view. Yet Guerneville is just a 15-minute walk down the hill (and a very steep hike back up to the house) or a five-minute drive. The house is modern and spacious, with lots of light. A great spot, if you want things on the more tranquil side.

Jabu September 2021
This is a very sweet cabin with everything you possibly need to slow down and enjoy your escape. The view is amazing, stars are close enough to touch, dog friendly with lots of room for everyone to stretch out and WIFI food enough to Zoom on. Very appreciative of our stay, thank you!

Cynthia September 2021
The house is lovely and the view is incredible! The road to get to the house is what you’d expect to get up to such a view and it’s worth it! We do agree, definitely do the drive in daylight, especially the first time.

Thomas September 2021
An exciting drive up a private road to the top of a hill where the house is located presents exciting views of lovely sunsets. House has a great layout for two families with a very nice common space separating a master bedroom from a suite of bedrooms with a private bath. A good value.

Michael September 2021
this house was in a wonderful location convenient to Guernville. the deck area outside was a huge bonus of our stay

Barbara August 2021
Thank you for a great weekend.

Amber August 2021
This place is AMAZING. The journey up the road is an experience in and of itself. Once you arrive you are in your own private cozy oasis in the woods. Waking up to views of the nearby mountains and peaceful sounds of birds was magical. The hot tub was unreal. So peaceful and relaxing. Book the trip here, you won’t regret it.

Deborah August 2021
The family loved the setting for our first get together in a couple of years! It was perfect for our needs. Clean, private and secure, yet easy access to town. It was surrounded by magnificent Redwood trees on the top of the mountain. We enjoyed the local offerings including canoes/kayaks on the Russian River, hiking, shopping, miniature golfing, and breweries. Make note of the five mph drive up Solaridge Road. Only half a mile or so, but super narrow, steep, and windy.

Wendy July 2021
If you do not like hair pin turns with a drastic incline, don’t choose. 1-5, 5 being fabulous…I’d go with a 2.5 or 3. We’ve rented for years, this place was ok.

Stephen July 2021
Great location and lovely house.

David June 2021
Fantastic home, and serene location. Because it's up on the ridge, the temperature it typically much cooler than it is in "downtown" Guerneville. Even on days when it was 95, the house stayed quite cool and nice - we never wished we had A/C (and I typically love A/C). The place is a gem.

Lauren June 2021
Loved this home! Stayed here with my family for a few days while exploring the area. The views were amazing. Would love to come back and stay here again.

Shrishail June 2021
We stayed at the Arcadia for a whole week. The place is perfect for a large family or two regular families with kids. Guerneville and the river are within few mins of drive. We loved watching the stars in the night from the very private hilltop backyard. During the days we made several excursions on the river and to the Jenner coastline. This is easily one of our best vacations in recent times. We had a lot of fun and would love to return there in the future.

Natania June 2021
Beautiful house and surroundings. Love the environs and the house is great for a family gathering. Well equipped and gorgeous.

Eric May 2021
Great place for our family get-together. Space itself was perfect for our group of 3 couples and a baby (who got his own room right near parents). Delightful mountaintop serenity and views, and great cross-through breeze on a hot day. Hosts very responsive to an issue we brought up at the end.

Jenny May 2021
This is a really special Airbnb. You are just minutes away from downtown Guerneville, but the house is tucked away, up in the redwood forest, and is so serene and quiet. The space is big and perfect for a family gathering or small group of friends. And the hot tub encircled by redwoods is a spiritual experience. We will definitely be back!

Raychell May 2021
Amazing views! wonderful hot tub!

Nishant May 2021
Outstanding view, easy access to nearby places, well furnished.

Chris April 2021
Amazing place! A sunlight hilltop nestled in gorgeous redwoods. Giant windows, spacious vaulted ceilings. This place is a total gem. The in-deck hot tub surrounded by redwoods is spectacular. The stay wasn't without a few hiccups - we had no hot water or heat when we arrived. I called the emergency hotline and they sent someone out immediately to resolve the issue. I turns out the gas was off for the entire place. It had to be turned on and all pilot lights had to be relit. Then on the second night, the water heater, located in the ceiling space, started leaking slowly and dripping through a light and onto the floor. I called early the next morning and they sent someone out immediately to fix it. Even with these issues, I'd 100% come back to this place. It is spectacular.

Alexis April 2021
This house is a wonderful place to spend time with friends - lots of space, beautiful outdoor setting with woodsy view, large rooms, and comfortable beds. We all want to come back! Such a great Airbnb!

Celia April 2021
The hot tub and the view of the backyard makes this listing worth staying at. A few things were broken or needing some updates. Overall, our stay was lovely and super close to the center of town. Thank you for having us.

Miriam April 2021
Expect a steep and winding one-way road that is well worth the efforts! The views at the top are breathtaking. Watch the sunset over cascading tree lined mountain ridges, while sipping Russian River Valley wines (recommend Iron Horse bubbles) in the hot tub surrounded by Redwoods. Enjoy almost complete privacy. The place was spotless and felt brand new. The room with King bed is private from other rooms amd has its own bath and patio with lots of space for yoga and meditation! Enjoy a full kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals. There is a full grocery store just outside the drive, but also decent places to get breakfast, drinks, or dinner right there in town if you don’t want to cook. Bring your own coffee/tea as that is not provided. Getting home before dark is recommended due to the drive up.

Greg April 2021
Beautiful house and great location. We would definitely consider booking again!

Hannah March 2021
The house is beautiful and has everything that one would need for a comfortable getaway. We spent some lovely evenings cooking, enjoying the sunshine and tasting some delicious wine from the area.

Teresa March 2021
Really enjoyed our stay! Talk about a perfect hot tub nestled among redwoods. Felt very clean for the COVID era. Would definitely say again.

Shashank March 2021
Nice place, fantastic views!

Alex March 2021
Absolutely wonderful home to spend a long weekend. Great location, super clean, nice hot tub, big kitchen, etc. Even a basketball hoop :)

Emily March 2021
Beautiful views and big open floor plan. Wish we knew the fireplace wasn’t working when we arrived but besides that it was great!

Samantha February 2021
This house is such a great place to getaway with friends and pups! The hot tub is magical, the hammock is blissful, and the view is stunning. The house was well laid out for both group dinners and hang out time, and relaxing solitude. The kitchen was great for cooking, and those windows are amazing to look out and keep the door open for a cross house breeze. It’s truly on the top of the hill, so do follow their directions about arriving during the day. The location is incredible: so close to town, but feels fully in nature and remote. We will be visiting again!

Zack February 2021
Great views.

Benjamin February 2021
Amazing house tucked away in the woods. Very secluded location with amazing views. Hot tub location can’t be beat! A great location for a little (Covid negative) reunion with friends

Leah November 2020
Beautiful spacious house with great views from every GIANT window. The area was very quiet and secluded but there was a grocery store basically at the bottom of the entrance road! The location of this house is perfect, all my questions for the host were answered quickly, wifi was fast, and the hot tub was heavenly...We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Tietjen November 2020
Beautiful views!

Alexandra October 2020
Beautiful Guerneville get away! Very secluded and quiet. The hot tub overlooking the valley is incredible! Great place for a larger group.

Nicole October 2020
Husband, toddler, dog and I stayed here for the better part of a week and had a blast. Super close to town but high enough on the hill to feel more isolated. Wonderful views. Great hottub. Bonus fenced-in yard good for the dog, and a little wilderness area out back for the dog and the kid to run around in. Would stay here again.

David October 2020
This house is perfect for a little getaway. The house is close to town which made grocery shopping and going out to eat a breeze. The views were amazing and we enjoyed the perfectly placed hot tube. Note, to get to this house you have to drive up a long narrow road. We have a traverse and had no problems with these roads, but I agree with the other post when you arrive the first time do during the day. We have already talked about booking another trip.

Jody October 2020
This was a great getaway! The house is conveniently located, has amazing views and just about everything you could need. The hosts were excellent communicators and checking in and out was easy. The hot tub under the redwoods was definitely the highlight!

Parth October 2020
Great place to relax, enjoy the hot tub with some amazing views. Close to a number of wineries

Kenneth September 2020
Wonderful stay at a great spot.

Ina September 2020
Great views. The lounge chairs in the backyard facing the view were a favorite! Thank you for the stay!

Corina August 2020
This house has the most beautiful view! Note, it's up on top of a very high ridge, so not walkable to anything. It was clean, stocked with appliances and cooking utensils, 4 bedrooms (note, the king, master room is on one side of the house and the other 3 rooms on the other - just to be aware with kids). The hot tub was awesome, in the most beautiful spot. Great outdoor furniture to sit outside and enjoy the view. Ceiling fans, but no AC for summers. It's located closely to the river, redwoods and ocean/beach.

Mark August 2020
Great location, great house with lots of space.

Urszula August 2020
Brilliant views.

Maura July 2020
This space is beautiful! Amazing views from most rooms. The hot tub was wonderful!

Eric March 2020
The view was outstanding and it made for such a relaxing time

Jacqueline March 2020
This place was the perfect getaway! The view from the backyard was just what we needed! The jacuzzi was great after a day of wine tasting.

Marissa March 2020
Awesome place! Loved the views from the backyard and the rooms! Will probably have an annual trip here!!!

Robert March 2020
Very cool house. 10/10

Jamie February 2020
Had a great time! The house was the perfect size for our party of 8. The location was beautiful and very close to the downtown area of Guerneville. Would definitely recommend!

Carole December 2019
The host canceled this reservation 34 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

David December 2019 The host canceled this reservation 30 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Dmitry October 2019
Very spacious, clean and stylish. Great view.

Savanna October 2019
Wonderful place, great views, had a fantastic family stay. Would absolutely return!

Andy September 2019
This place has absolutely amazing views from the back porch and hot tub. The bedrooms are spacious and filled with good light.

Rachel September 2019
We had a great time on our trip. Very relaxing time!

Alex September 2019
Fantastic place! Easy checkin, clean and amazing views! Highly recommended

Sierra September 2019
Exactly what I hoped for when booking this place. Easy access, with amazing views. Hot tub was a dream. Get very safe and enjoyed the stay. With the pups, it’s was great because backyard was fenced in. Views were incredible

Toni September 2019
This place is beautiful and tranquil. It has really wonderful views. A six or seven minute drive down a hill will get you to the sweet town of Guerneville.

Joe September 2019
Great view and space.

Elizabeth September 2019
This house was amazing. It was peaceful and relaxing. It was close to town and it was a short drive to beaches. The driveway was narrow and steep but our full sized trucks made it up no problem. We would definitely rent this home again. Great family experience.

Vero August 2019
Loved our stay! The road to the home is steep and windy, but our cars made it up no problem. Plus the view at the top is well worth it. The home is stunning and charming, felt like a cozy family home. Bring toiletries and food, since they don’t have much stocked. There’s a Safeway 4 mins away so it’s easy to get provisions. We went to the river 2 of the days and it was an easy 15-20 min drive to the beaches. Definitely recommend staying here for the hot tub alone.

Jonno August 2019
Beautiful spot with spiritual feels. Amazing views soarrng above the trees. V special spot

Seth August 2019
Beautiful place!

Valerie July 2019
This place was nice. The area was great and the communication with the host was great. The space was a little dirtier than I expected, but I contacted the host about it and they sent housekeeping over the following morning to do a better clean. Other than that, the views were wonderful. The area was quiet and peaceful.

Nathan July 2019
Fantastic location with a ton of space. Check in process was a breeze. There's a windy road to the top but all our cars were fine with it and the views were absolutely worth it.

Katie July 2019
Absolutely beautiful views! Up a small mountain, so be ready for an interesting drive up, but well worth it!

David And Kat June 2019
We had a great stay at Arcadia. The house is really nice and well-appointed. All bedrooms were comfortable and clean. The kitchen was stocked with spices and all the implements we needed. The views are gorgeous. And the hammock and hot tub are perfect for enjoying them. We had hoped to be able to walk to town (despite the listing and reviews suggesting it wasn’t especially doable), but wound up driving due to the distance/steepness of the road. Overall a great experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to book there again.

Erin June 2019
Arcadia was absolutely beautiful - spacious, amazing views and well appointed. The lookout from the hot tub was absolutely breathtaking. We will definitely be back.

Minchong May 2019
Not a bad stay, but also not a spectacular one. The location was great as-is and convenient if you're okay walking down the hill. Vacation hosts were communicative and helpful with heating system. Amenities were definitely older than expected. General cleanliness was average, with some sour spots of discovering ants in one bedroom and feeling like some areas in the house weren't properly refreshed or organized. Would be important for host to consider being more thorough with housekeeping. Felt like our group could have paid the same amount for a newer place to stay at, in the general vicinity. Pluses - hot tub, living room, bathrooms, outdoors space, the VIEW! Minuses - unusual layout where people can get stuck in one wing of the house if one bathroom is being used, kitchen amenities were a mix/match where certain things were there and certain things were dirty/almost running out

Response from Russian River Getaways May 2019
Thank you for the review and feedback, Minchong - much appreciated. We apologize for any cleanliness issues and will take that up with the housekeeper. Arcadia is definitely an older property, which we think is actually pretty clear in the photos, and other guests have noted the unusual layout, which is why we include a floor plan with the photos. Arcadia sleeps eight people, which many people find to be a great value. We want guests to know and be happy with what they are getting! It is worth noting that many folks actually enjoy Arcadia's retro aesthetics, along with the killer views and fairy ring hot tub, so it seems as though perhaps this home was not a great fit for you. Please know that we're always happy to answer questions you have about any of our homes, as I'm sure most hosts would, so grill away! -Rachel

David May 2019
Great stay, beautiful property. Very close to town.

Joe May 2019
This house is perfect for a group, with stunning views, proximity to everything the Russian River Valley has to offer, and the perfect hot tub. Everything was as advertised and then some.

Debra April 2019
Not easy to get to especially at night . Quite roomy in a pretty and rustic setting .

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2019
We appreciate the review and feedback. Because the Russian River area is so rural and mountainous, we do recommend arriving in daylight when possible to make things easier, especially when coming to a house like Arcadia, which is high up on top of a (small) mountain and has the views to prove it! We hope you enjoyed your stay, Debra! -Rachel

Alex April 2019
We had a fantastic stay at River Getaways. My wife and I took both our families here, and there was more than enough room for the six of us. The house is huge, with three giant bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a separate one-room cabin just outside. The view outside is incredible and peaceful. We especially enjoyed the outdoor hot tub, which sits on a deck overlooking the forest below. We had a great time grilling, hanging out outside, and enjoying the coziness of the house in the evening. The location of the house is a few minutes outside the town of Guerneville, so we were able to easily get to and from the nearby town and wineries during the day. The drive up the hill is a little bit steep, but we were able to do it in our old 2WD sedan with no problem! We had such a great time here and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away from the city.

Kyle April 2019
Good views and location although the driveway is a bit of an obstacle if you have a smaller car. The layout is a bit weird because you have to walk though a bathroom to access the third bedroom. SO MANY of spiders and other little (some not so little) crawlers around the house so probably not the best spot if you can’t handle killing insects during your whole stay. Also, house is pretty old and not 100 percent clean Plenty of fans and screen doors to get a good breeze which makes up for no air conditioning so not a problem at all.

Daniel March 2019
Home has an awesome location on top of a beautiful hill with a great backyard and great family room area. Layout of house is sort of strange, but nothing that’s bothersome. Great value, lots of beautiful space, good for small-mid sized groups!

Alex March 2019
Amazing view and very cozy house with everything we needed. Would stay again for sure!

Jill February 2019
Perfect spot for a friends weekend away. Secluded beautiful spot with easy/quick access to town , spacious rooms, cozy fireplace, and a full kitchen which allowed us to cook multiple meals. Definitely took advantage of the hot tub which has an amazing view!!

Beth February 2019
Had a fantastic time at Arcadia with my family. It rained most of the weekend and we kept cozy by the stove or in the hot tub. The kitchen was spacious for us to cook in together. There was also plenty of great food and wine a short drive away. The place was all around great and the only thing I’d keep in mind is that one of the bedrooms is accessed through a bathroom, so it requires some good communication. I would recommend staying here!

This place was absolutely perfect for my 30th birthday celebration! A gorgeous and cozy escape - the rooms were spacious, the views were amazing, and there was plenty of space for decorating and entertaining. The only slight downside to having a house high in the hills is that the road up is incredibly steep - one of our cars had trouble making it up, and walking up the road to get to the house was no joke. Make sure you're prepared and come in the daytime, and make use of a car/taxi if necessary (unless you love a good hike!!) Otherwise, everything else about the house was perfect and I would love to come back! The hot tub, warm blankets, Alexa system, and DVDs were so fun! Russian River Getaways was great - they were professional, flexible, responsive, and incredibly clear with their instructions, and they made everything so easy. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would love to come back soon!! Thanks for everything!

Andrew January 2019
Great spot with awesome views. House layout is a bit funky, but would definitely stay here again. Also echo other reviews that recommend getting there before dark - there's a long, steep, winding road to get to this place.

Mary December 2018
Lovely, comfortable place with a fantastic view.

Henrik December 2018
This is a great house an top of a big hill on a private spot in the forest. The house is super spacious and the view from the back is stunning, would definitely consider going back. Arriving during daylight is recommended as the road to the house is narrow, steep and a bit slippery when wet. Renting a 2015 dodge grand caravan is not recommended at all...

Elizabeth December 2018
Gorgeous views in a private location but still very close to town and the best of what the Russian River region has to offer (wineries, great restaurants, etc.)!

Manisha November 2018
Location is beautiful and the views are amazing. The staff is incredibly responsive and was attentive to our needs.

What a view! A couple of my girlfriends and I stayed at Arcadia for my birthday with the intention of having a nice relaxing weekend. We definitely succeeded due to the breathtaking view off the back patio, the spacious, comfortable home and the hot tub looking out onto the sunset. The house was great to lounge in the backyard and cook (Safeway conveniently located right down the driveway) and enjoy the quiet. We had a surprising but awesome stare-off with a grey fox who meandered into the backyard while we hung out on the patio. The house is conveniently located, relaxing, peaceful and well appointed. Communication with the rental office is easy and transparent. They are very helpful. 11/10 will book again.

This place is really good and we would definitely go back again. We stayed with 4 adults, 2 babies, and a dog. As noted in other reviews, there is an occasional smell that seemed like a gas leak or rotting food. On our way out, we also noticed it outside, which makes me think it might be related to the septic system. Also, as noted in other reviews, the refrigerator would occasionally leak and leave a puddle on the floor. It was also pretty dusty, particularly on the ceiling fans and fake plants. But, the views were really nice, and the hot tub was wonderful and relaxing. The bedrooms are big.

Vicki October 2018
The view is breathtaking!

Tom October 2018
Great views! Would have been 5 stars apart from a broken iron and bedroom fan that wouldn’t turn off no matter what we tried ..!

Response from Russian River Getaways October 2018
We are happy you enjoyed the views and will look into the iron and fan issues. Thanks for visiting Tom! ~Maile

Marta October 2018
Beautiful view but no frills and some serious issues that need to be fixed. We were so excited to stay at this home in wine country for four nights, but upon arrival, we had a number of issues that really let us down. When we first walked in the door there was an overwhelming odor in the main area of the house that smelled like wet animals and old, rotten food combined. We discovered the smell was coming from the outdated stove vent that had most likely never been cleaned since it was installed many years ago. We tried to air out the house with a cross breeze but it did not work, and it remained for the entire duration of our stay. The only way to eliminate the smell is to probably replace the stove altogether. The description says fully stocked kitchen but there are only two pans to cook with (one of which had dried, old eggs crusted all over it upon arrival and had to be seriously scrubbed before using it) the coffee mugs and plates had food/coffee stains on them and had to be rewashed before using as well. The house is pet friendly, and though there are house rules about what pets can/cannot do, there were clearly people that broke those rules and let animals go everywhere and so there is still hair all over the place and stains on the carpet in the bedroom. The bathrooms had cobwebs where they should have been easily removed, the shower squeegee was moldy and needed to be replaced, along with the kitchen mop/broom that would clearly just be pushing more dirt and grime around. The fridge had a big puddle in front of it the first morning that we thought maybe was due to a couple melted ice cubes that fell on the floor or something, but after the second morning when it was there again, figured out there was a leaking issue with the fridge altogether. The cleaning fee for the home was $230 which seemed a bit steep to begin with, but upon the condition at check in, was completely outrageous. Most places have a checklist of what to re-stock/clean before each guest turnover, but this place clearly did not have that. The lighter for the wood burning stove in the living room was empty so we couldn't light a fire, only one roll of paper towels was in the house as well. I initially complained about the house on the first night but did not hear back until mid-day the next day when they did offer to refund the cleaning fee and relocate us but it was too late at that point as we were in the middle of our prepaid wine touring day and the offer was only good until 2pm. Not an option at that point, to leave our vacation tour day to go back, pack up our things and relocate to a different house. They did send someone to the home to bring a lighter, paper towels, a new mop and broom and inspect the fridge on the third day, but again, we just wanted the house to be in check in condition from the start and didn't feel we should have been the ones to point out those things. The company continued to be responsive as I contacted them which was good, but again, I've stayed in rental homes all over the world and never have had so many issues with a place as this home, so we were disappointed that we had to take time away from our trip to let them know about issues that should not have been there to begin with. The pros of the house are the views from the outdoor patio, the hot tub and the beds were comfortable. If you are looking for an up to date house that you want to spend time in, this isn't the place for you. If you only care about the view and being outside, and don't mind an outdated interior and furniture, this is the place for you.

Response from Russian River Getaways October 2018
As we said in our message when agreeing to refund you a total of $600, Marta, you rented a modest home in a modest area of Sonoma County, and it was clearly not a good fit. Rather than the departure and full refund we offered initially when it became clear you were just not happy with the situation, you accepted a refund of your cleaning fee and an extra night for free instead. We did not hear from you again during your stay, but you requested further compensation after your departure, which we granted. We feel that this was more than fair for minor issues quickly remedied in a house most folks enjoy and review favorably, especially as you wound up paying about $100 per night for a home sleeping eight. That said, we are truly sorry that the home did not meet your expectations and wish you the best of luck with future rentals. -Rachel

This is a great hilltop hideaway, with spectacular views (just as good as advertised) and a sweet hot tub in a redwood grove. Just minutes from Main street--walkable if you don't mind a steep hill--and from Armstrong Redwoods and the other spectacular natural and viticultural attractions of Sonoma County. Architecture is interesting and provides a good basis for conversations ranging from "wow, cool!" to "why the heck did they do that?" (Why is there a doorbell to the second bedroom? Why is the very attractive marble shower in the hallway? Why does the curtain wall of windows in the kid's room face the driveway and not the redwood-covered hillside?) The place feels lived-in in a homey, good way--not a bland, ikea-covered rental-only property--and is wonderful place to unwind, cook some nice meals with the well-stocked kitchen, and enjoy the scenery.

Pauline September 2018
This listing was perfect! We wound up staying in quite a bit, cooking together and eating our meals out in the patio, using the hot tub and having a very relaxing girls' weekend. It really is the perfect spot for a bigger group. Because it is tucked away on the hill, surrounded by trees, it was the perfect viewing spot for star gazing! Highly recommend :)

Jeremy September 2018
Outstanding location, quiet and secluded with a spectacular view. Be prepared to drive a steep, windy road on the way up to the house, though!

Lesley September 2018
An amazing place with beautiful views and dog friendly! We definitely plan on returning :)

Deanna August 2018
This is a very peaceful location. The hot tub is great and the views don't get much better.

Annie August 2018
We enjoyed our stay but felt that the house should be in better shape for the price, both the furniture and overall cleanliness. The view is fabulous, the house is large and accommodates a family nicely. The hosts were responsive.

Chase July 2018
The location of this property is by far its greatest asset. It manages to be close to town while still offering hilltop privacy and stunning views – made possible via a quickly-ascending, winding one-lane road. Sitting in the backyard (or in the hot tub) at sunset is definitely where you realize how special this place is. The room layout is unusual, but manageable. Most of the finishes are a bit old, except for the standalone shower which seems newer and is quite nice. Our only main issues were in the kitchen, where the sink was leaking onto the countertop and the dishes from the cupboards were quite dirty, needing to be rewashed before use. Overall, we had a great time at Arcadia, and we would certainly consider staying here again.

Katie June 2018
Location location location! If you’re looking for a house that you just want to stay in the whole time THIS is the one. It’s somewhat secluded and the view is breath-taking, we all felt so at peace the whole time we were there to the point where we dreaded leaving, we left at the very last minute of check-out! Despite some electrical issues in one room and the couch bed not being very good, the small details down to the tiny trinkets on shelves were so fun and fulfilling, we really truly felt at home and in a dream while we were there, in the hot tub, on the hammock and just eating together on the back patio. Beautiful house, beautiful area, worth EVERY dime.

Paul May 2018
Arcadia is a fantastic retreat. So close to Guerneville but secluded and remote at the same time. It's an ideal getaway from SF.

Christy May 2018
We had a great stay! The view from the outdoor terrace is beautiful.

Kathryn March 2018
Loved this place! The fixtures are a bit dated, but we enjoyed the fire place, hammock, and hot tub immensely. Good value and location.

Cynthia March 2018
What lovely and private location for a getaway. Watching the fog and clouds move across the valley and tree covered hills from the patio or the hug windows as awesome. The hot tub surrounded by redwoods was so peaceful. The kitchen is well equipped. Everything we needed for gourmet meals for a group who loves to cook. It was warm and cozy sitting round the pellet stove in the evenings. The only thing to be aware of is that the bedroom with the twin beds is accessible though the shower and bath room. So consider that when you are thinking about who you group is. It worked just fine for our group of two couples and 2 single women who are very close friends. The host is excellent at communications. I had a number of questions as we prepared to travel and they were super responsive.

Toshi February 2018
Great for a family weekend, would be happy to go back

Kevin February 2018
The house is situated in a truly idyllic location, the views are spectacular, and the outdoor space is really nice to relax and soak in the surroundings. The hot tub and hammock along with the patio space were great to hang out in. Also, the living area had great space to play games or cook for a larger group. The only downside to the property is that some of the spaces of the house are dated to the point where it felt unclean and/or concerning to our group. Mildew in the carpeted bathrooms, leak underneath the sink, and simple things like drawing the curtains or trying to change the speed on the fan and we would easily break. Simply put, some of the original design and fixtures of the house aren't really holding up and make for unsanitary or concerning conditions. Having said that, I would recommend this for a group, as we had a great time. It was really beautiful, secluded, and we were able to have the space we needed. My only suggestion is to keep those things into consideration for future visitors.

Hozefa J. February 2018
Great stay in a great home. Drive up was a little challenging, but the house itself was extremely comfortable all around. Beach is just around the corner and everyone in the town was very nice

Joseph February 2018
Great host & location. My friends and I come here every year and always look forward to it. Stunning views and amazing home

Tessafay January 2018
A wonderful, tucked away cabin with delightful views. Very comfortable and close to great food and coastal activities.

Angelica December 2017
Beautiful home in Guernville. Favorite part was the incredible view in backyard...trees everywhere! Air quality is amazing. Beware the road leading up to the house though-especially in the dark!

Janney November 2017
The house is presented accurately. Great views and lovely grounds. The inside is dated: carpeted bathrooms and older fixtures and amenities (linens, specifically). But what you get is fair for the value. The drive up is harrowing at first, but we got used to it quickly. The hosts, River Getaways, are great. Response time is quick and courteous. They are informative and made checking in and out very easy. Professionals through and through!

Sarah October 2017
This place was perfect for 6 of us! While the road is steep- it is paved and we didn't have any problem getting there. We even walked down to Johnson's Beach one day from the cabin with no issues. The space is perfect for a group with a large shared area and then giant bedrooms. Outside is gorgeous- we grilled and hung out on the patio our first night. The hot tub was also great! The place definitely has a cabin feel and an older vibe (carpeted bathrooms) but was perfect for us! To access one of the bedrooms you have to pass through a shared bathroom which could be an issue with a lot of people in and out of the restroom but didn't really bother us! I would definitely stay here again.

Diane September 2017
This location was breathtaking! Yes, it's a steep road for about 1/3 mile so I would advise going in the daylight the first time. It was a very comfortable house to stay in. We had six in our family and there is more than enough room. Time on the patio was peaceful and fun. Hot tub a plus. The amenities were great. A new outdoor bench is needed or remove the photo of it as it is too weathered to sit on. A couple of the kitchen bar stools were not the most sturdy so be careful. I would highly suggest removing the carpet from the bathrooms to keep sanitary. Even with these minor things, I would highly recommend the property.

Bram September 2017
The place was so cute and rustic, but also very comfortable with stunning views. My family had a wonderful stay here. Communication was very easy as well. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place in the Russian River!

Michael August 2017
This is a super home up in the hills, surrounded by trees. Plenty of room for guests. Big, open kitchen. Large floor to ceiling windows facing forrest. Location is close to wineries and located in Guerneville. Peaceful, quiet location with backyard view of a small valley. Beautiful! Inside, beds are comfortable. Plenty of seating for guests.

The Cabinets August 2017
The house was perfect for a week-long getaway for our family of 5. The views and hilltop setting are beautiful. The hot tub under the redwoods was great for grown ups and kids. Everything in the house worked and was clean. Plenty of space (bedrooms are huge). The kids especially liked talking to the Amazon Echo. You have to walk though a shared bathroom to get to one of the bedrooms. This was fine for us, but could be a consideration for others. Overall, great place.

Angela August 2017
The house conditions were exactly as expected. The place is dated and could use some maintenance but it was clean. We had a couple of issues which required a call to the management company. They responded quickly and everyone we dealt with was very friendly and helpful. The house itself has an interesting and cool layout. It was a treat to relax in the hot tub and take in the scenery. The views are AMAZING but come at a cost (see next paragraph). The only real downside to the stay was the drive up to the house. Once you turn off the main road it is a very, very steep, narrow, windy road with holes and bumps. It requires you to drive in a low gear and when neighbors park on the road it becomes challenging to get around their cars safely. The road is so narrow two cars cannot pass and the vehicle proceeding down is forced to reverse back up the hill. This drive is not for the faint of heart and requires good technical driving skills. We had intended to go wine tasting and have our teenage driver be the designated driver. However, we had to change our plans as she wasn't skilled and confident enough to drive the road up to the house.

Matthew July 2017
Great place! Quaint and spacious. Great mountain views. Hot tub is spectacular, outside under redwood trees!

Mundi July 2017
Great view and great location. Dog friendly :)

Nancy June 2017
Beautiful place. Felt very private. Will definitely be back again!

Meredith May 2017
The best part of our stay was the gorgeous views from this house. We had 8 guests but the house was nice and roomy so it didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Could use a few more towels and pillows but other than that it was a good experience. Very close to downtown but felt secluded and private. Would absolutely recommend or stay again.

Jonathan May 2017
Beautiful house, beautiful view, comfortable, and a great location. Can't go wrong with this one!

Delma April 2017
The place is amazing. Great views and very comfortable. Very close to river and town. My only complaints (easily fixable): 1) Ad says it sleeps 8 but only six people can sleep comfortably in a bed. 2 would have to either use a sofa bed or a floor mattress. 2) The kitchen does not have any basic supplies such as salt and pepper! 3) The lock for the hot tub was really hard to open. Other than that, we had a great stay!

Aalap March 2017
The property has amazing views. It is quiet and perfect to unwind from a city life. The master bedroom is really big and cozy. There is a safeway very close by for any needs. I would come live here again!

Gareth February 2017
I can't recommend this place highly enough. The scenery and the hot tub are simply spectacular. The house is very spacious and well-equipped. Perfect for a large family or a group of friends to relax.

Alison January 2017
This house has the most incredible views. Our favorite spot was in the hot tub and patio just gazing out. The correspondence with Hunter was quick and efficient-- we would come back here !

Gianna December 2016
We had a great writers retreat at Arcadia. Lots of room to spread out and spend time working. Hot tub, nestled in the redwoods, is amazing. Big windows with great views. Silent nights and cozy beds. The bedroom with two twins is in an odd spot (you have to go through the shared bathroom to get in or out). Kitchen was lacking in condiments (there was only salt). Would have been nice to have some spices/cooking oil/pepper/etc). VERY steep/long driveway to get up to the house. Otherwise, perfect stay. I would come again

James November 2016
This place was great. Located walking distance to town but felt really remote. The house itself was as described and fit our needs perfectly. Would definitely recommend!

Sarah October 2016
The views and property were exactly as depicted and simply stunning. It was an amazing getaway experience at a location that allows you to quickly get into town while giving you the space and serenity to enjoy the mountains and night stars. The host / management company was very responsive and I would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway close to wine country!

Muriel October 2016
the house is wonderful for a family get away. we cooked and had a wonderful BBQ on the terrace looking at the sunset. just wonderful
Michael August 2016
Great directions and communications. Home was clean and had all the things we could want. Hot tub was nice. Good all around.

Eda June 2016
We loved our stay at the Arcadia house! It was in a very secluded area of Guerneville, way up on a hill. There were gorgeous views from the hottub and the backyard. Although it was very secluded and private, the house was very close to town where there is easy river access. The house can sleep 6 but has ample space. Loved our stay and would come back.

Karen January 2016
I cannot speak more highly of this listing. Don't let the fact that it has zero other reviews discourage you. Russian Rive Getaways seems to be a property management company for vacation rentals that has only started to market and conduct transactions through Airbnb, hence why they don't have many reviews. However, the house was incredible and their customer service was great. What I loved: BEAUTIFUL HOUSE with tasteful decor/furniture High ceilings Tall windows that go to the ceiling Secluded area - the house faces a beautiful valley. Fog seeps in into the valley in the mornings Backyard has a BBQ and outdoor seating area Secluded hot tub with view of the valley Lots of parking - great for large groups Keyless entry - you just need a door code Huge bedrooms Plenty of towels All cookware/dishware/flatware that you'll need. There's even a food processor and coffee grinder! 5 extra sleeping pads and air mattresses - don't worry if you have more guests than beds Open kitchen with bar seating - great for cooking and socializing Close proximity to many vineyards About .5 miles away from Safeway FYI, there is a slightly scary, super steep and narrow driveway to get to the house. I'd advise arriving before it gets dark so you can drive it for the first time in the daylight. The only thing I'd improve is that the house should come with some basic food ingredients, i.e. oil, spices, sugar, salt. It's really easy to forget these items when you travel, or not have the capacity to carry them with you.

Kate July 2018
This place was perfect for our group of 8 for a board game week. It had everything we needed for a fun week and the town nearby made it easy to keep the fridge stocked. The road up the hill is a little rough, so careful if you drive stick. But it is worth it, the view from the hot tub is gorgeous!

Joseph May 2018
Amazing house! We had no issues at all. They made it so easy to access the home completely stress free. We had a great weekend and I would highly recommend this home.

Khira March 2018
Spacious house on the edge of the forest. Absolutely beautiful views, especially from the wonderful hot tub. There were four of us and we were so pleased at how much personal space each of us had.

Kevin October 2017
My friends and I loved this cabin. It was comfortable and provided the perfect backdrop for catching up and hanging out. I would highly recommend this place, especially for parties of 4-7. Thanks, again!
