Spacious, quiet and convenient, a great stay!

Rhonda October 2021
Clean. Easy check-in.

James October 2021
Had a wonderful time during my two night stay! Check-in was a breeze and the property was clean! Would recommend to anyone planning to stay in the area.

Isabella October 2021
So great for the pups! A perfect getaway close to the river!

Allison October 2021
Great and quiet getaway! There’s not much in the immediate vicinity of the house, but all destinations are very accessible from the location of the house. The hosts are amazing, responsive, and provided all the information I would need to have a successful stay. I would definitely consider staying here again!

Amy September 2021
This was such a great spot to stay! Everything from check in to check out was easy and as expected. A beautiful spot tucked into the trees

Angela September 2021
The house was so charming & cozy. Kitchen was stocked (which some airbnb's, you're lucky to have more than 2 plates), We had a great time. The location is perfect as well. Communication was quick and helpful. Close to all areas of the wineries, even took a ride to Bodega Bay. We would recommend & stay here again for sure.

Gionata September 2021
It’s a great place to spend a few days in nature and relax in the redwoods. I highly recommend fir people trying to escape the hassle and bustle of the city!

Laura August 2021
I loved this place. I would definitely stay here again. It was very clean and cozy. They responded quickly to any questions. Loved it!

Andrew August 2021
It was great!

Zoee August 2021
We had such an incredible time staying at the Birdsnest! Was so cozy, so accommodating, and had such great amenities. We cannot wait to come back here. Such a wonderful location and lots to offer!!!

Anna August 2021
Nice cute house suited for families with kids or couples. Good location with access to the river, community pool, restaurant, short drive to the center of the town. We had a great time. Thank you for hosting!

Shannon July 2021
This was a great little escape for our family of 3. The house was well stocked and clean when we arrived. We thought the bed was so comfy that we might have to ditch our mattress at home and get a new one like theirs, our daughter said the same about her bed! We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings on the secluded back porch. You can walk to the Rio Nido Roadhouse and the little mini golf course they have and Johnson's Beach and downtown Guerneville are just a 5 minute drive away. Lots of great restaurants to enjoy on Main Street as well as a Safeway for groceries.

Susan July 2021
See previous note

Mercedes June 2021
This cozy cabin is accurately displayed on the airbnb description. It's a good stop to get a sense of the Guerneville area. Beautiful and surrounded by redwoods.

Raymond June 2021
This was a pretty ideal spot for my 3 person + 1 dog family for our first trip to Guerneville. The location is right off the main road into town & several nice river beaches (all between 5-15 min away). We visited in the middle of a heatwave so one concern was how comfortable our dog was going to be when he was crated, but the bottom level stayed nice and cool when the outside temp was in the 90s. The quiet neighborhood and dog park about 50 paces away were a plus. I’ll definitely check if this home is available the next time we explore the Russian River.

Robby June 2021
This place is tucked away in the woods. Very close walk to the river and short drive to a lot of restaurants and wineries. Great place to relax with the hot tub, games, and full kitchen. We will stay again in the future.

Katherine June 2021
Rustic and charming cottage nestled within the redwoods. Quiet, comfy, cool, and roomy. Rio Nido is a 1970s do-it-like-no-one-is-watching throwback village community with everything from putt-putt golf to community gardens, tennis courts, and swimming pool. Just stroll and talk with the locals but be sure to drive up and down each of the short but fascinating Canyons One, Two, Three, Four, Six, and Seven (or walk them from the Bird's Nest). Perfect relaxing location and close to so much more.

Brianna May 2021
pro's: great locations, clean, great spot to bring friends and family!! close to the river and in a cute little neighborhood with a bar and restaurant with a pool in walking distance looks like the photos for the most part. cons: #1 there is NO pool table. the photo a complete lie- the description is also misleading as it says a half size and as pool player I was excited but this is not a half size. it is a tiny plastic game for little kids #2) they explained multiple times they have no items available at the house however they literary had a fully stocked house. they had multiple styles of coffee makers, dishes, blender, everything you need. which is amazing however I literally packed even my own knives because they said they were not providing anything #3 they wanted to impose strict rules on the hot tub like not being allowed to use it much. I payed a lot of money to stay in a place with a hot tub expecting to use it and that was disappointing

Nichole April 2021
Great spot with two levels to spread out and decompress. Under the trees so fairly shady which will be fantastic in the heat. We had a bit of trouble with the tub temp but could have been user error. Neighbors are close but quiet. Very cute and reasonable rental. Walk to the roadhouse and 5 min drive to town.

Gregory April 2021
Our stay in Russian River was great. Easy to check in, great communication, great quiet spot near the river and close to wine country and other local spots. Pretty much everything you need if you're cruising around the area and want a great place to close out the day with a soak in the hot tub and a quiet place to sleep. The only reason this wasn't a full 5-star review is because of very little things about the stay. The heat in the house was tricky to control (the thermostat never stayed at the temperature we set), the hot tub was also difficult to control and had trouble maintaining temperature after we got in. The bed we slept in was not the most comfortable, and while the house was CLEAN the carpeting that was throughout most of the house was pretty dingy and old which made things less cozy and comfortable.

Sara April 2021
Great little place in a cool neighborhood! Awesome hot tub under tall redwoods. Very comfortable & snug little treehouse:) would definitely come back here.

Julia March 2021
Comfy spot with a great hot tub under the redwoods!

Ramon March 2021
I recommend this spot. Located perfectly for our trip. Short drive to the coast and to the great area breweries. Hot tub was a perfect start and end of each day.

Dessrie March 2021
Great location, very cozy and clean. Nice getaway.

Laura February 2021
Good location. Rio Nido is a nice place to walk your dog. Full of redwoods, a nice dog park and Rio Nido Roadhouse had great food. House was nice and cozy. We went during off-season and enjoyed building fires and having a hot tub

Aria February 2021
This is a perfect spot near the Russian River. It was very clean when we arrived and the place is so cute! The hot tub and pool table were awesome touches too :)

Mariam February 2021
Had a lovely stay at the birds nest. The space was exceptionally clean with extra precautions due to covid taken. We also really enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub and grill. The couch, beds and pillows were very comfortable and could use some upgrades. But overall would recommend the space. The self check in was a breeze. Things to bring : - oil, salt pepper and any seasoning - pre ground coffee beans - we were happy we brought our French press but there is a coffee machine - bathing suit for the hot tub is a must! - wood and starter for the fire -Your own pillow There is a safeway a mile away if you need to do a grocery run.

Aditya February 2021
Lovely place. Super cozy and has all the amenities you need. Hot tub was a great add. Super convenient location. Note : best way to reach hosts is via messaging through Airbnb. The call number doesn't work since their offices are closed. Quick to respond via msgs

Mads November 2020
The place was clean and had everything we needed. We appreciated the thorough written instructions for all appliances and the hottub. Great location near Armstrong Woods and a short drive to Jenner.

Jarred November 2020
We had a great time. Hot tub was a great feature.

Alannah November 2020
This location was absolutely perfect for our needs. My mother, godmother, 2 small dogs, and I all stayed in this quaint cabin for Election Week. It was a lovely place to have no cell service, functioning hot tub under a huge redwood, and all our favorite people (pups included ). The carpets are a bit (more than a bit) stained, but who cares when you’re in a forested wonderland? We would definitely stay here again!

Megan October 2020
It was a very cute place! Definitely an ideal quiet getaway.

Leslie October 2020
Super cute place! Beds were super comfortable, nice and clean hot tub. Very close to town

Dylan October 2020
Great, cozy spot! Grill and hot tub made the stay.

Liam September 2020
A nice getaway from the Bay Area at a good price. Especially enjoyed relaxing on the front and back patios, surrounded by redwoods.

Tessa September 2020
Absolutely adorable little place. We had a great stay, super close to grocery and food, and a totally bearable drive to the coastline. We will be back!

Chris September 2020
Wonderful place for a quiet retreat with the family

Madeline September 2020
Perfect spot for the two of us and our pup. We came during a heat wave but the house stayed very cool and there were several fans provided. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking essentials, just make sure you bring your own spices! Location is amazing, tucked away in the trees on a beautiful street with friendly neighbors. We would happily book again!

Amy September 2020
We had a great time at the birds nest. The house was very cute, clean and comfortable. We loved the hot tub and how close it was to town. Would recommend and would stay here again.

Michelle August 2020
Really cute place with all the amenities we could have wanted, super great location, and hosts were very responsive. Thanks for the great stay, would definitely stay there again!

Ryan July 2020
Nice clean space just a short walk to the river.

Alex July 2020
It is a convenient place to go to the river really calm even if the neighborhood is busy

Katie July 2020
We loved our stay in the Bird's nest. My favorite was sitting out back in the early morning, sipping coffee and watching the many types of birds stop for a visit.

Katie June 2020
The location was amazing. I would definitely stay again!

Travis March 2020
Great spot! Loved the hot tub and the owners were very responsive and accommodating! 11/10, would stay again!

Allie March 2020
Lovely weekend getaway! Close to Guerneville and wineries. Neighborhood was quiet even though the houses are right on top of one another. House had fully stocked kitchen for those who cook. The trees in the backyard/hot tub area are magnificent! Perfect set up for two couples.

Tony February 2020
We had a fun weekend! The basement was very cold but we didn’t spend much time down there so it was ok.

Response from Russian River Getaways February 2020
Thanks for the review Tony. There is a pellet stove downstairs that will keep it toasty down there once it gets going, if the space heater is not enough. Next time feel free to give us a call if you need help. -Rachel

Nicole February 2020
The Bird’s Nest was wonderful! A perfect space for a girls weekend. We loved the hot tub especially!

Annie January 2020
Awesome place! Would recommend!!

Tiffany January 2020
The hot tub in the redwoods was my favorite part! Highly recommend staying here.

Lily January 2020
My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at the Birds Best cottage for a long weekend. The house was plenty large for the two of us, and we did not even use the downstairs area, but it was nice having the option. We especially appreciated the full kitchen as we decided to mostly cook and bake our way through the weekend. However, the main reasons we chose to stay here were the wood stove and hot tub, and neither disappointed. The hot tub was amazing, and tucked among redwoods on a pretty back patio. The wood stove also kept us toasty the whole weekend - note that you need to bring your own firewood, though. Along with parking for our car, fast internet, and being super close to Guerneville main street, we really enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to anyone!

Christine January 2020
My husband and I, with our dog, had a great stay at the River Getaway! It was a central location, close to local restaurants and amazing hiking trails. We enjoyed our time and would recommend it to others.

Ryan December 2019
This spot was an amazingly comfortable spot for us to relax and hide away from the world. The hot tub is the perfect fit, the neighborhood is quiet, and the house is warm. What a treat!

Mark December 2019
Nice weather for great hiking up around Austin Creek during the day. Hot tub and cozy indoors kept us warm during the nighttime rain.

Hugo & Nina December 2019
Great little home just before Guerneville downtown. Warm and cozy for cold weather. Cute and clean as well. Great for 2 couples or a family getaway. Hot tub was lovely.

Cherry November 2019
Birds Nest was exactly what I was looking for. It is a place that is away from the busyness of the city/suburbs. The house had everything we needed for cooking meals. The living room was cozy for my small family. Bathroom was super clean. The den downstairs is perfect for a bigger group to spread out. My son loved the house because of the cool staircase and den. The area is very rustic and surrounded but trees which again is what I wanted in our little getaway. Armstrong National Forest is a super short drive which we also loved. The downtown/main street area was very convenient and has just enough local eateries and grocery store. Biscuits from Black Bottom Market are a must. We also enjoyed our burgers and sushi dinner at Koala’s.

Jon November 2019
Overall great place to stay. Clean, cosy, great location, and so peaceful. The beds aren't bad but they're not the most comfortable either. Other than that it's a solid stay.

Response from Russian River Getaways November 2019
We appreciate the feedback about the beds, Jon. Bed comfort is often a subjective matter, but we will check them out. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll be back! -Rachel

Amber September 2019
Great house! 2 of us stayed and really enjoyed our time. The house stayed plenty cool without AC, even when it was 85+ outside. The backyard/hot tub area is very cute. We had an issue with the grill and the owners responded right away to get everything taken care of. Walking distance to Rio Nido Roadhouse, short drive (or about 45 minute stroll) to downtown Guerneville. Would definitely consider staying here in the future!

Sean September 2019
This is not a party pad, but if you want to relax responsibly, it is GREAT!

Sean September 2019
The place is great! Has a nice hot tub backyard deck overlooks an uphill forest. Very Cozy place!

Faustino Robert August 2019
Solid place! Everything you need and within a close vicinity to many great places to be in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

Seve August 2019
Amazing home, would definitely come back & stay here again

Michael August 2019
Great place and great location.

Debrina July 2019
Beautiful location, very well equipped with lots of nice touches.

Kim July 2019
The Bird Nest is a comfortable place to stay. It is tucked into the Redwoods with a front deck overlooking the quiet road and a back deck area that is very private. I loved sitting back here to mediate and enjoy the trees. We did not use the hot tub as it was very hot outside. We were worried that the house did not have air conditioning in the hot weather but the area cools down to the 50's at night. The surrounding trees also provided relief from the heat. By opening the windows after dinner we were able to get the bedroom down to a comfortable temperature to sleep. Don't let the AC thing stop you! While we did not use it, there is a finished basement, which remained very cool if heat was an issue. The house is located in a neighborhood of what seems to be mainly summer and part time cabins. There is a dog park almost across the street as well as a children's playground. It is close to Guerneville, some great eateries such as Farmhand Deli, and of course, the river. We enjoyed exploring and then coming back to a private place to rest up. We could cook, do laundry, and walk our dog easily.

Brigham July 2019
Quiet sanctuary in a shaded redwood canyon. Very comfortable and so accessible to get in and out. There is a gated dog park, children's playground and neighborhood picnic areas across the street and so nice to see that. Lovely neighborhood with a quiet, secluded vibe. The hot tub fits 4 and no fuss to use. Didn't use the grill or make too elaborate meals, but nice to see the fully stocked kitchen and options. Very close to Rio Nido Roadhouse and downtown Guerneville if you want to go out and visit restaurants and local pubs.

Sanny July 2019
The Bird’s Nest was a perfect getaway! Enjoyed all the amenities, especially the hot tub. Will definitely come back again.

Donna June 2019
This is a small town and I have friends here so this place was perfect

Erica June 2019
We had such a wonderful experience here! We’re local and our house flooded so we were in need of temporary housing. This was a sweet reprieve and we learned some new things about our area. There is an amazing park across the street with a dog park, tennis courts, playground, and community garden. The street is super mellow and quiet. The house is clean and has great amenities. The beds are super comfortable and there are tons of blankets! The hot tub was perfect. Some things I wish I would have know: The house has skylights in the bedrooms and I’m a light sensitive sleeper. This was a bummer for me, but an eye mask would solve the problem. Also, for dog owners: the house is not fully fenced in, so maybe bring an Xpen to put in front of the driveway. All in all, well worth it and we would stay here again!

Amy June 2019
Nice cabin in a cute area called Rio Nido nestled in the redwoods -- other amenities down the street: dog park and kid's playground, were greatly appreciated! Accessible to nearby Guerneville by car.

Rubén May 2019
Clean, quiet, spacious place. Would highly recommend to anyone. My pup enjoyed himself too!

Anna May 2019
This house was so cozy and stylish; we loved it! It’s perfectly situated between the Russian River, downtown Guerneville, Armstrong Redwood State Park and tons of wineries. Check-in was a breeze and the house had everything we needed in terms of amenities, pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc. Beds were comfy with plenty of extra blankets, towels & pillows. The hot tub was a nice touch, and seemed very clean and well-maintained. We didn’t use the basement much as it was cold and sparse — there was a 2nd bathroom down there so we only used it for that. The bathroom on the main floor is much preferred. The only thing I found surprising was how close the houses were together in this area — guess Bay Area real estate woes extend even 2 hrs away from the city. The neighborhood was really nice though and had a dog park / playground across the street. And the house had a tall privacy fence around the back where the hot tub was.

We are glad you enjoyed Bird's Nest and hope you'll be back, Anna. Thanks for the review and feedback. It has been unseasonably cold this spring, but we'll definitely work on making sure the lower level is inviting for all! -Rachel

It was a beautiful cozy house, we loved hot tub and fireplace. The first floor was not used because it was quite cold. Good location near woods - fresh air and silence.

Thanks for the review and feedback, Sergey. We're glad you had a good time at Bird's Nest, and we'll see what we can do to make sure the lower level is toasty for future stays. Also know that you can always call us with an issue like that while you're in house, and we will do what we can to make it right. -Rachel

This is a great house, very bright and airy with cute bird decor throughout. There are two decks, and both are sturdy and have adorable accent lighting. There is off-street parking, and the stairs to the front door are easily navigable with suitcases or bags. Check-in was a breeze with the lock box located next to the door. The house is freshly painted and spotlessly clean. It is equipped with a grill, gas stove and very cold refrigerator. (No dishwasher) There is a twelve-cup drip coffeemaker (with paper filters), an electric tea kettle, a toaster, and a microwave. The hosts provided dish soap, a sponge, a scrubber, garbage bags, paper towels and napkins, salt & pepper. There is also wifi and Xfinity cable. There was plenty of hot water for showers, and there was shampoo and body wash provided. We had a very minor issue while we were there, and the management company responded immediately, and they were courteous and professional. We had a very pleasant stay, and highly recommend this rental.

A very nice house. Beautiful spot, nice hot tub and well equipped. Finally a house with a more than decent knives set.
