Tony October 2021
I highly recommend this place if you're going to Guerneville and want a nice retreat. The back yard is great--a deck, a grill, a very nicely-kept hot tub. The inside is nice. The walls are thin and it can get cold overnight, but the heater works well. The kitchen is great. And it's easy to get into town. You'll love it.

Rachel October 2021
Beautiful stay! We really enjoyed the closeness of the river, the warm hot tub and the cozy cabin.

Laura October 2021
Cute little place, with rustic vibes!

Matthew September 2021
We really enjoyed our stay in Guerneville. The house was has a very comforting cottage feel with high ceilings, dark wood accents and a stone fireplace. Kitchen has everything you need to make meals. The dining room has two large bifold glass doors that open up to the spacious deck outside. The deck has a nice seating area with another outdoor fireplace. The property is fenced in which was a plus since we were traveling with our furry children. The river access is just a short walk down the road and downtown Guerneville is a short distance as well.

Danny September 2021
Beautiful cottage located very close to Guerneville and the russian river!

Crystal September 2021
Cute and convenient cabin! Perfect for our best friends getaway!

Wei September 2021
This is the place where you want to do the Russian River getaway just like their name. It's cozy, authentic, and homey. has a special charm about it. Also not to mention they have a cute backyard, pet friendly and indoor and outdoor fireplace plus a jacuzzi. if you don't feel like walking around, the house itself is worth to just relax and chill in.

Heather August 2021
Highly recommend!

Jeremy August 2021
Read some of the other reviews before booking, so it was easy to level-set my expectations. I have to say that I very much enjoyed my stay at the Baytree Cottage. It's a very rustic, old cottage with so much character. Check-in was a breeze, the place was clean and had everything I needed for my 5-day stay. I went up alone with my pup for the first few days... she had a blast running around in the backyard, great neighborhood for morning/evening walks and pedestrian access to private beaches. The neighbors were nice and there were some friendly neighborhood pups as well. Easy walk to the main street area (around 15 mins), but not something I would do at night given low visibility. There was an issue with the smoke detector beeping due to a low battery. The ceiling was too high for me to change the battery myself so I messaged Russian River Getaways on a Sunday morning and David responded immediately and had a maintenance person stop by and fix the issue while we were at the beach. A+++ service! WiFi signal was great and the hot tub was a breeze to operate. Would definitely stay here again.

Kathy August 2021
Had a lovely stay. All as described. Nice retreat for a city girl. Highly recommend taking your morning coffee down to the private river area for the neighborhood discussed in the handbook. Serene and beautiful.

Kristen August 2021
Very peaceful place to stay. Great home to take the kids and dogs to. We love to cook and the kitchen was fully stocked and we had everytbing we needed. The beds are very comfy and we loved the duvet covers! I highly recommend this place if youre looking for a great Russian River getaway.

Jon August 2021
This property was exactly what my friends and I were looking for for a weekend getaway in Guerneville! It has a great location (20 min walk to downtown), all the amenities as mentioned in the ad, and unwinding in the hot tub was great. The walls are very thin as mentioned in other ads, but that did not bother our group. Otherwise, I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Jen July 2021
For those looking for a rustic, simple cabin-like place in the heart of the Russian River, this is it. The hot tub is lovely, and recently remodeled kitchen and some aspects of the bathroom were nice. However, there are some challenges with this place that should be noted. First, a deep cleaning - outside and definitely inside - is needed. While I am grateful the company managing the place responded quickly to my messages about the cleanliness (and almost immediately refunded our cleaning fee and offered housekeeping), they need to deep clean the baseboards, lighting, replace the worn sheets in the larger bedroom and check all the curtains for stains and bugs. Second, please consider installing screens. While bugs happen in the Russian River, screens would reduce the bugs coming into the home. Lastly, we were disappointed our child couldn’t play in the yard due to tree shavings and deep ivy which looked like it hadn’t been trimmed in awhile. This cabin has its charms, and no doubt with some TLC and deep cleaning, it would be wonderful.

Response from Russian River Getaways July 2021
Thanks so much for the review and feedback, Jen. We have taken care of the cleaning (Website hidden by Airbnb) we mentioned during your stay, that mostly happened because of major tree work done after the clean, which created much dust and debris, even inside the house. It was our error not to have scheduled a touch up clean after that work was done. -Rachel

Gregory June
Cute little cottage with lots of fun activities to do very close by. Only issuewas cleanliness with cottage as we were met with red beetles infestations along an army of ants in the kitchen.....

Mary May 2021
Clean, cute, cozy and great deck!

Lauren May 2021
This place is very rustic, but is a true old school cabin. The doors and locks around the house are all on latch opening systems, and as far as locks go there are a lot of bolts to keep doors closed. Floors are very creaky, and the wall between the two bedrooms has about a 3 inch gap so privacy is at a minimum. All in all it’s no frills and rustic, but has all the amenities you need if you’re not too fussy.

Katie May 2021
Adorable and convenient location. Nice beach 5 minute walk away that was very private and almost empty! Taking points away because it was dirty, floors in particular

Rayna May 2021
Our stay here went as smoothly as it can. House was as described, and location was phenomenal. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. A couple notes for those who may be concerned - the house is rustic and an older home, so the doors squeak quite loudly. It didn't bother us but if you're a light sleeper, it could wake you up if others in the house move around at night. Also, there is a gap in the wall between the two bedrooms, so the master bedroom wasn't well noise-insulated - again, not a big deal to us but could be to others. The hot tub was fabulous, the two fireplaces worked perfectly, and the kitchen was fully equipped. We loved our vacation here!

Will May 2021
Really cute little cabin across the river from town. The short walk down to a usually empty spot by the river was awesome. The place has lots of charm and was a very comfortable stay for my party. We had an amazing time here!

Beth And Bill April 2021
THE PLACE WAS MORE SPACIOUS THAN WE PICTURED.

Marcelle April 2021
This was a cute cabin close to town. Jacuzzi was nice. Fireplaces were awesome for s’mores. Kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals. If privacy is needed not best place because you can hear everything through walls . Looks like the pics.

Brett April 2021
awesome place, super rustic..great location..very comfortable and clean. loved the outdoor space..option of gas or charcoal grill to choose from is great..Hot tub..in and outdoor fireplaces..full kitchen..really great spot..

Anthony April 2021
It's like camping in a house! Everything worked great and the river is only a block away through the redwoods! Relaxing stay!

Maciel April 2021
An adorable old house (complete with all the creaks and squeaks). It has everything you need to stay comfortable, although the nights were cold the blankets on the beds were very warm and cozy and the furnace kept things toasty. There was pack n play for our baby which was a nice surprise! While the backyard is not private (due to the neighbors that back up to the house) the hot tub was still very private and we enjoyed that a lot! We loved the very quick walk to the river. It is perfectly located and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Lizz March 2021
Great place to stay for a mini vacation. Hot tub was awesome and the neighbors were also very friendly!

Breanna March 2021
Great little spot for a family or small group. Small kitchen, but totally doable. The fireplaces are amazing and they had wood! If you need wood they have boxes for sale at the Safeway for $20. We'd definitely return to this spot!

Tamara March 2021
This is an adorable river cottage. We really enjoyed the fireplace, the charm & the vintage vibe. The only thing that we wished for is a bit more privacy in the backyard. Due to the close proximity of the house behind the cottage we didn't feel as relaxed as we had hoped for. The walk to the river is an easy one and beautiful.

Rose March 2021
We had a group of three of us staying here and working remotely. The place is in a great location and the wifi held up surprisingly well even with us all working. The comments made by other reviewers are accurate - the place is very close to the neighbors and the walls are super thin - but it wasn't too much of an inconvenience for us. Alyssa and team were incredibly responsive!

Barbara February 2021
Great location. Lovely place to stay.

Kelley November 2020
Super cozy little place surrounded by trees. Had a lovely time escaping for a few days, building fires (there was firewood at the house!), enjoying the hottub and proximity to the river. There were just enough odd books and knickknacks around for the kids too.

Emily November 2020
This is the perfect place for a quiet weekend retreat. The house is cozy and well kept, with a beautiful back porch for relaxing, and is walking distance to a small beach along the river. River Getaways was quick to respond to my messages throughout the stay

Sharon October 2020
Cute little place. Procedures were very professional and clear cut. We had a hiccup with a power outage that cut our trip short but the company was very good at informing us of what was going on and refunding us the night our stay was cut short.

Andrea October 2020
This place was adorable and perfect for the 3 of us to get away for a weekend in Guerneville. It is very cozy with a working fireplace and tons of charming decor. The beds were comfortable, yet the "queen" felt small. The kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans, plates and utensils but did not have any pantry staples at all (not even salt, pepper or sugar). Everything was immaculate and tidy. There were plenty of towels (although no contidioner) and extra blankets. The dining room table was also a little hard to move around as it was a tad too big for the space. The couch and living room were great though and where we spent most of our time lounging. The deck and hot tub were also quite nice although one thing to note is the outdoor space is not very private (the neighbors are quite close and have a view of everything). The overall location is fantastic. You can walk into Guerneville to go to the beach or grab something to eat. Everyone in town was wearing masks and it felt very safe. Overall a lovely stay, just consider that the place is quite small and cramped if you were hoping to spread out. Even knowing all this, we hope to return again soon

Timothy October 2020
Very lovely place in a nice neighborhood. It had all the amenities that we needed. The back porch was a nice place to chill out with the view of redwoods off in the distance. Would definitely recommend if you take a trip up to the North Bay.

Ting October 2020
Very cute cottage in a quiet neighborhood of Guerneville. Houses are close together in this area so voices really carry - not ideal for large and/or late night noisy groups! Wonderful place to relax, slept so well! Also the house was very clean, with additional supplies provided. Just a few minutes walking to the river which was a special bonus!

Mary September 2020
Bay tree cottage was a cute, cozy little cottage. It was dog friendly, had a well stocked kitchen so we were able to make delicious meals. A big plus is that it was a short walk to a semi-private beach spot along the river. Only things to note- the beds were pretty uncomfortable, the walls were very thin, and the backyard didn’t have a ton of privacy. None of those things were deal breakers for me but it wasn’t made clear in the listing that that would be the case.

Amanda September 2020
The house was so adorable and exceeded our expectations. The river and downtown is very close and the smell of the area is amazing!

Jessica September 2020
The place is cute and full of vintage charm but I think it needs a few renovations to make it worth the price.

Elise June 2021
Amazing location with neighborhood beach access and a quick walk into town or to mini golf (which our daughter loved). The hosts were super responsive and generous. It's a small place and you will hear everything people say in from the living rooms and bedrooms, but with our small family that was fine. If you bring a small dog note that the area under the house is technically small enough for a small dog to get under and explore. Had a fantastic vacation, would do again.

Gina October 2020
We had a wonderful stay! Loved the hot tub and the grill!
