Christine October 2021
Beautiful and well kept property. Quiet, peaceful, spacious and so charming.

Danae October 2021
Great host easy to communicate with. Beautiful home, would stay again.

Jeff October 2021
We had a great time here. The layout and back deck were great. I’d stay here again.

Jamey September 2021
Perfect place for a getaway to Guerneville. Well priced and plenty of space for eight people. Tons of outdoor space!

Allana September 2021
Great big house with plenty of room! Loved the outdoor space and layout. Peaceful neighborhood.

Par September 2021
Such a wonderful, spacious and clean place and barely a mile from the center of the town! We were a group of 8 and we had a great time here. Nice spacious rooms and lots of sitting areas. Good sized backyard with well maintained plants and trees. The hot tub made it a perfect place to relax. We highly recommend this place!

Kendrix September 2021
An absolutely lovely home that's less than a 5 minute drive to downtown Guerneville. We weren't sure if the home would fit our group of 5 but once we arrived we realized this could have easily fit a much larger group. Super spacious, has everything you need. You won't regret staying here!

Jennifer August 2021
What a wonderful house. Great location and so perfect for kids or adults of all ages. Being fenced in was so nice for privacy but every room opened to an outdoor space. There was not a bad spot in the house. Tons of space and a great kitchen to cook. Plenty of dining space and a crowd pleasing home for sure.

Mike August 2021
This was an amazing place on a quiet street. The house was set up well and was larger that it looked in the pictures. Well equipped and organized kitchen. Outdoor patios and hot tub was wonderful. Our family throughly enjoyed our time and will be back…

Kent August 2021
Thanks for an amazing place to stay during my first visit to the area. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. Propane grill was fantastic -- looked brand new. Hot tub was amazing for the chilly nights. Rooms had great space, beds were comfortable, and water pressure was fantastic. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Jessica June 2021
Our family of 4 adults and 3 kids stayed at this property in June 2021 and were very pleased. The star of the house is the outdoor space. The deck is lovely and great for eating dinner, for kids playing outside, and for just hanging out. The bedrooms are spacious with good storage and plenty of pillows. The bathrooms are adequate (some remodeling is in order for the one downstairs and the upstairs one is huge and has a big whirlpool tub, which the kids loved!) and there are plenty of bathroom towels, although no beach towels. The shampoo/conditioner/lotion provided is hotel travel size, so I'd pack some of your own. The kitchen is very spacious and has a very good supply of pots, pans, kitchen tools and gadgets, and there are large dish sets for both outdoor and indoor dining, which is handy. There isn't much in the way of kitchen washcloths or dishtowels, so you might want to pack a couple. There also isn't anything in the way of basics (olive oil, salt pepper), so you'll want to pack that. The location is good. It's in a quiet neighborhood just a bit outside of downtown. It's close to many beaches, wineries, and restaurants, both right in Guerneville and in the surrounding areas. Overall, our family was very happy with this property.

Miguel June 2021
Great, simple location to share with a family or group of friends. So many common room areas that allow people to spread out and enjoy this wonderful stay.

Melanie May 2021
Such a great stay! They had everything we needed for our stay with small children. The hosts were great and quick to respond. Can’t recommend it enough!

Sam May 2021
Perfect place for our 8-person getaway. Really great outdoor space, fully equipped kitchen, and spacious bedrooms. Walking distance to restaurants and shops in town. Would definitely recommend for large groups!

Celine May 2021
Beautiful house! Would recommend for large groups looking to get away.

Annelise M March 2021
Great find for weekend trip with friends! We appreciated how large the space was and that it was organized and well labeled. Easy to get there and check in. Guerneville is a lovely area.

Jenny March 2021
Spacious, quiet house in Guerneville that’s walking distance to the downtown area with Safeway, coffee shops, etc. The house itself doesn’t get much sun, but it’s well stocked. The beds are either a little too saggy or too hard. There are board games, Roku, and a perfectly clean and well maintained hot tub in the fenced backyard!

Fatima February 2021
Good location. Bigger than i expected and quite clean. The heating was a bit confusing but we figured out it was separate for the upstairs n downstairs. Kitchen was well stocked with all kinds of dishes n tools but bring all your own actual cooking ingredients (even sugar, salt etc..we had to go out n buy those basics)

Sebaztian February 2021
Absolutely beautiful space and really relaxing! The hosts were very communicative and we really appreciated the extra care put into going above the standard COVID safety guidelines. Would absolutely come back. :)

Monte February 2021
Had a nice,comfortable stay. This place met our needs for having a relaxing few days of lounging, cooking, and soaking in the hottub. The area is quiet and peaceful.

Siobhan February 2021
Big house can accommodate lots of people, kids and dog friendly. Needs a real deep cleaning, inside and out House has lots of tall trees around it, so deck Doesn’t get much sun -

Chris November 2020
Clean, spacious, great for large family or group.

Jereana November 2020
This house was sooo nice...enjoyed my stay

Melissa November 2020
A great stay with a ton of space for families. We especially appreciated the very large upstairs bedrooms and bathroom, which were very comfortable and well appointed. The backyard area with sparkly clean hot-tub was a treat and lovely for relaxing in the evenings. The house guide and helpful labels around the house were very much appreciated and the kitchen was well stocked. We did run into an issue soon after arrival, but it was resolved through quick and responsive communication. Overall a highly enjoyable stay in a house with lots of character and lovely, quiet neighborhood.

Victoria October 2020
Great host and wonderful house with so much space!!

Wendy October 2020
This is a very spacious house for large groups, with a large backyard and a wonderful hot tub. It’s super close to everything from winery to beach to grocery stores. We would love to stay here again next time we vacay at guerneville!

Hannah October 2020
Great house. Lots of room. Great location. Would definitely go back

Kerry October 2020
Great house! Like a lot of the other reviews mentioned it was huge and a good value. We would definitely like to stay here again.

Benjamin September 2020
Really great place! Fantastic amenities and location. The one annoying thing for me was when trying to close doors. There were a number we could not close/lock well because they were simply crooked in their frames.

Renee September 2020
Fabulous place for a large group. Big kitchen, wonderful hot tub, and close to town! We will definitely return.

Lalo August 2020
The place is much bigger than the photos reveal. It was welt kept and the deck with hot tub was the best!

Lorenzo August 2020
Spacious, lots of amenities, great communication. Beware the upstairs shower though ;)

Bryan March 2020
great place to stay with a group near downtown guerneville and wineries

Michael March 2020
This place was wonderful! We had a weekend getaway with 5 couples and the house was a perfect spot to relax. Plenty of space to sit and hang out all together, both inside and outside. Big dining room table and a huge porch area with hot tub. Just a mile to downtown Guerneville, where we had a great meal out one night. The house is set up well to bring your kids along as well...our group is already talking about doing that for our next stay. Looking forward to visiting again in the future!

Tracy February 2020
We had a great stay. This is a unique layout and it worked out perfect. 3 couples and 2 teenage girls. We rarely saw the girls. They had the bedroom upstairs with the two queen beds, fireplace and TV. They loved it and only came out to eat! They outside patio are is fantastic. We loved the hot tub!!

Dawn February 2020
A great place - the deck is amazing for catching a bit of sun even while surrounded by redwoods.

Tony February 2020
The house was set up very nice and was very clean. Very spacious. We only had 4 adults and it could’ve accommodated many more. Four couples would’ve been very comfortable.

Tara January 2020
The Great Escape was pretty spacious! There was plenty of room for 10 of us with a dinning table to fit all and a fully-stocked kitchen with labels on all the cabinets so it's easy to find things. We had a couple issues--the dishwasher, washer, and toaster oven weren't functional, and we received an incorrect code to the hot tub--but these issues were responded to swiftly. The dish washer was fixed the next day and we were given the correct hot tub code, which we corrected in the welcome book. The hot tub was a dream, there were enough bathrooms that it wasn't crowded, and we enjoyed some of the games and puzzles that were available. Overall, would recommend.

Response from Russian River Getaways January 2020
We appreciate the review and feedback, Tara. The items you mention are fixed now...we do apologize for the inconvenience. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll return! -Rachel

Victoria December 2019
Myself and 8 other ladies stayed here for 4 days. The house was very spacious and was bigger then described. The hot tub was great and having the fire place in the living room was a great touch. The owner was very responsive and the house was very well kept and clean! Highly recommend!!

Heather December 2019
This place was huge! Our group loved the large dining area for our Friendsgiving.

Lisa September 2019
We had immediate responses to our questions about the house and the area. The house worked well for our group of 8. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the large dinner table and large outdoor space.

Myha September 2019
The house was great, the outside deck was beautiful and it was all centrally located. We had such a great time here.

Zoe June 2019
This was a great house for our large group! There’s a lot of outside spaces to sit, eat and enjoy. We especially appreciated the bbq grill and hot tub. It’s about a mile from the river which isn’t too bad. Theres been some additions to the house that make the house a bit funky but still lots of functional and usable rooms. Lots of street parking too!

Lauren June 2019
Great space for 8-10 people, very comfortable and close to town!

Deborah June 2019
We had a wonderful stay in Gruene

Jessica June 2019
This is a beautiful property close to downtown! The outdoor space was especially lovely!

Becca May 2019
This place was so wonderful!! Super magical and clean. Very accommodating for kids as well. The bathtub upstairs is amazing as well!

Arturo May 2019
This place was amazing! It’s located very near a beautiful small town and a redwood national park. It’s also near several vineyards. The home itself was equipped with everything we needed and more. Very spacious and comfortable. The host was also extremely responsive to our needs. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to all! Thanks guys!

Julia April 2019
As others have said, the house isn't as nice as it looks in the pictures. The top floor is beautiful and remodeled but the bottom floor is dingy in places. The deck really makes up for it though. Its a really great place to have a bunch of people together.

Sarah March 2019
House was roomy. Ants in kitchen and upstairs.

Christine March 2019
Great place Great location. Very well equipped kitchen. All you need for a great friends/family getaway

Katharine February 2019
The location is awesome! The house is beautiful, but would be much more usable in the summer. Hot tub is great! It felt like no one has been there in a while, despite the company being about a mile away from the house. We arrived to a cold house that took hours to warm up and dealt with ants all throughout the upstairs. It is definitely not personally owned property and there are many rules posted every where.

Response from Russian River Getaways February 2019
Thank you for your feedback Katharine. We do have someone inspect the homes before arrivals. We usually put the heat between 60-65 degrees. Unfortunately this one most likely didn't heat up much because of the size of this home. We will note this and see if setting the temp higher for arrivals works out for future guest. Thanks again! Maile

Lenore February 2019
Emily was absolutely wonderful she answered every question the house was exactly is stated, nice and clean lots of room Nice big dining room table we could all sit in we actually had 12 one night for dinner very comfortably great place to stay, will return. thanks again !!!

Courtney January 2019
This is a really spacious, comfortable and well-stocked home to stay in. There were eight in our group, and it was a perfect fit for us with ample room to sleep, cook, lounge, enjoy the hot tub, and the rooms are well insulated, so it is easy to not be bothered by people who want to stay up late and to control the temperature of the house. We would love to do it all over again!

Meg December 2018
We had a lovely family gathering over Christmas, and the house was a perfect space for us. The upstairs heat didn’t work but the agency was quick to respond and get us space heaters once we notified them, and we were plenty warm with those. The house needs a touch of TLC (electrical tape over cracks in the tile floor in dining room, back door very challenging to open and close), but we enjoyed it.

Gazal November 2018
The house is as good as in pics , might be better :) Had an amazing stay!! would love to come back.

Sonali November 2018
The house is spacious enough for a party of 7-8 people. Good value for money. Before we checked in the hosts offered to refund us due to the Camp fire that weekend. We thought that was very gracious. The next door neighbor was watching us park our cars so make sure you do not park anywhere near her property.

Response from Russian River Getaways November 2018
Thank you Sonali for your feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your visit to this home. We will look into the items you mentioned and as far as your code goes, they expire at 11 am. That is the time of check out. We hope you come back to visit some time! Sincerely, Maile

Andrew October 2018
Great location! Loved the place. Highly recommend.

Meredith October 2018
This was a great place, and plenty large enough for the eight (8) of us that stayed there. Close to town, and easy check-in. Would very much recommend for a large group!

Lisa October 2018
Would recommend this place. Close to town, amazing outdoor area with great hot tub, tables and sunlounges x

Kim September 2018
Awesome stay! Thanks so much for everything! Highly recommend for a group!

Justin September 2018
This house was plenty of space for our party of 9 and we were able to cook meals and eat together at the nice large dining table. Although the house seemed more dated than what I had expected from the photos (kitchen, floors, cabinets, fences), everything was very clean and neat.

Response from Russian River Getaways September 2018
We are happy to hear you had a nice visit Justin! We actually just replaced that fence this past week. Thank you for your feedback and being such a great guest! ~Maile

Sara July 2018
The Great Escape was the perfect vacation getaway for our family! The space and amenities were exactly what we wanted. We loved having the ability to hang out, cook, eat meals together, sleep comfortably, and enjoy the hot tub each evening. We were close to the Russian River, local stores, and other tourist sites such as Armstrong Woods and could get to San Francisco in less than two hours. It was exactly what we wanted for our family vacation!

Misty July 2018
Great place for a family. If you’re looking for luxury, this is not your place. If you’re looking for a place you can take your family and not have to worry about the kids touching things and where you can relax, this is it. Great outside areas and mostly stocked kitchen

Debbie May 2018
The River Getaways’s place was a very roomy home with a well appointed kitchen.

Patrick May 2018
Great spot! It served as a home base for a week of wine tasting and drives along the ocean. We cooked or barbecued every night. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. The decks and hot tub got used a lot. The house was plenty big enough for four of us to hang out. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a good spot to use while exploring the Sonoma Wine Country and Coast.

Amy April 2018
Overall, we had a really great experience. Unlike some AirBnBs that claim to hold 10 people, we were easily able to fit all 10 of us comfortably. The outdoor space was amazing, if you are looking to hang out in the sun and do some barbecuing, I would recommend this place.

Simone April 2018
Hi. Overall our stay was great. Bring wood with you to start a fire in the indoor fireplace. This house was great for a big group or two families. We all had a lot of space, it was a nice quite neighborhood and the location was very convenient. Also, communication with Emelyn was great and easy! Thank you for everything.

Jeff March 2018
Perfect for a weekend getaway from the city. Great location for wine tasting! Mazzocco and Rochioli wineries were both with 15 min. Hot tub is enormous and well maintained.

Kaitlin March 2018
Spacious house good for groups, fun hot tub/bbq setup and plenty of space to relax around the house.

Jessica February 2018
I booked River Getaway for a group of 10 of my closest girlfriends as a bachelorette weekend. I live in the Bay Area, so Guernville is not far, but when we arrived, it felt like a total oasis! The house is huge, conveniently located, well stocked with cooking utensils, and the hot tub was wonderful! When we arrived, the house was totally spotless, and each bedroom was welcoming and comfortable. We were minutes from town and minutes from amazing hiking trails in a gorgeous redwood forest. It was heaven! Communicating with the hospitality company that cares for the property was easy and straightforward. We hope to return again in the future, because we had such a lovely stay here.

April February 2018
Perfect for a quick getaway.

Nice getaway, though a bit pricey. We shared this house with another family for 3 nights and still paid just short of $800. With that I expected updated bathrooms and clean and neat areas. Some of the tiles were cracked and we warned the children not to play in those areas. The upstairs was nice but we were the family downstairs and the bathroom downstairs was outdated and half mold around the bath tub. The location was very quiet and a great space for two families. The heater worked fantastically and was intuitive. The kitchen was perfect and we were able to easily cook multiple meals there. It felt very different once we were enclosed in the property versus being out and about around the property. The towels were a bit frayed, but clean and usable. Quite expensive but it have the kids plenty of places to explore to keep us adults sane.

Great location 2 miles from "downtown" Guerneville to the south (including Safeway grocery store), and 2 miles from Armstrong Redwood State Park to the north. The house was comfortable and very well stocked with cooking equipment, including a nice new gas grill. The hot tub and patio area were very nice too. BYO consumable cooking stuff (spices, tin foil, oil, etc.).

Kathy November 2017
beautiful and quiet place, fast and easy communication

Elia September 2017
This place is amazing. Pictures does. Or do it justice. There were many rules to remember but host made it easily available with signs around the house. Very spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend to others!

Karma August 2017
Great place in RR for a large group. We enjoyed the deck, hot tub and the river.

Becky July 2017
To start at the beginning, the directions and keyless entry were very convenient. The home was clean and larger than expected. The layout was great for several married couples. The kitchen had everything you could think of. The outdoor decks provided lots of different areas to enjoy.

Jonathan May 2017
This was a great space and fit our group of 11 comfortably. The outdoor space is incredible and mostly private, despite being in a neighborhood. The house has plenty of common space and lots of different rooms - great for a large gathering of people. I highly recommend this space!

We were a group of triathletes and supporters (10 adults and 1 infant total) in town from SF for a race in Santa Rosa and Great Escape was perfect! The house was spacious, well maintained, and comfortable. The patio and hot tub were perfect for hanging out and relaxing and the location close to Guernville was super convenient.

Ria April 2017
Perfect for a group that wants to cook, hang out on the patio and relax in the hot tub. Would love to stay here again!

Chris April 2017
Really nice place for a stay if you're visiting the Sonoma valley. It's very spacious and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need for preparing food, it was clean, and in a quiet neighborhood (not a secluded spot, and quiet hours are imposed). It would sleep four couples very comfortably, but you could sleep an extra three if willing to share space. The management company communicated everything effectively, and check in/check out was as easy as showing up on the first day, and walking out on the last day. Would recommend!

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2017
Great review for Great Escape and Russian River Getaways, thanks so much Chris! Just a note for others reading, Great Escape is located in the Sonoma County but in the Russian River Valley. Because there is a Sonoma Valley on the eastern side of the county, there is often confusion. Thanks again Chris...you're welcome back any time. Rachel, Russian River Getaways

Erica March 2017
Great location and huge house! Great getaway spot.

Kris February 2017
The house is huge, very well kept, and just around the corner from downtown. Quiet location which is perfect for a get out of the city weekend and more. Would definitely rent again!

Beatrice January 2017
Very spacious and wonderful amenities! The house is also about a 5 minute drive from popular destinations such as Armstrong Redwoods and Downtown Guerneville, so that was very convenient.

Miranda December 2016
We had such a wonderful family trip to Guerneville! The house was spacious and lovely, and we have already talked about making this an annual trip!

Elizabeth November 2016
We cooked a huge thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen had all the pots, pans and roasting pan needed. First rental home that had everything needed to host a great sit down dinner! Very comfortable for 10 adults!

Richard October 2016
Great property with amazing outdoor area and space for dinner. Beautiful setting surrounded by redwoods.

Stephanie October 2016
The home was beautiful and very spacious. Lots of great toys for the kids and very generous with amenities provided. Neighbors were quiet & surrounding area is wonderful!

Julie October 2016
Our families had a great time at this property and it was really close to town. The house is very roomy and the kids loved the all the space both indoors and outside.

Veronica September 2016
Great place! Would definitely recommend it.

Lisa August 2016
We absolutely loved this house. My twins are still talking about 'the Russian river home' thanks to the toy kitchen and books. There was more than enough space for our party of 7- we were amazed by how large it was! Also the kitchen was well equipped and the hosts made navigating the rental and amenities very easy.

Heather July 2016
Had a great stay! Plenty of room for our group with lots of smaller private areas to read or relax! Loved the hot tub . Easy walk to town. Beautiful trees and views

Steve May 2016
Pro's of the stay: Quiet neighborhood, lots of sun on the deck, great outdoor areas. Con's: Weird house layout with 29 doors, strange interior spaces, strangely giant bathroom, small kitchen, and no bathrooms directly attached to bedrooms. Also, the BBQ was very worn out and needs replacing. Overall we felt it was a bit overpriced for what you get.

Roxy May 2016
I can not say enough good things about staying in this lovely home! We had a large party, 8 people, and it was the perfect size - in fact there was room to spare. The patio area was a wonderful place for all of us to hangout, and the hot tub was big enough to fit us all.

Steve May 2016
The property is about a 10 min walk from downtown which is awesome. The street is quiet surrounded by trees. The home is beautiful and well maintained. All the instructions are easily accessible in the binder in the living room or via your smartphone. The house is spacious with a large dining area for brunch/dinners. This is my second stay at this property and it is the one place I prefer to stay when I visit Guerneville. If you're looking for a place where you and several friends/family members can stay together and get away, this is the place for you.

Response from Russian River Getaways May 2016
Thank you for your staying with us again, Steve! We're so glad you've enjoyed this home for another visit. We're resolving the ant situation; thank you for letting us know and being considerate about not leaving items out that might attract these little uninvited guests. :-) We look forward to welcoming you back again! - RRG

Jeanna April 2016
We enjoyed our weekend in Guerneville very much. Had a chance to visit some local restaurants and bar....everyone was very friendly. The house was excellent for our group of 8. I appreciated that there were very clear instructions on how to work or find anything we needed....well equipped. The neighborhood was very quiet and relaxing, the backyard excellent for an evening outdoors.

Justin March 2016
The house is nice and big for large groups. And the deck/jacuzzi area was perfect for hanging out and bbqing and entertaining. You can walk to town, and we did, but it takes about 25 mins. It's flat though and you get to walk along a creek bed so it's beautiful. All in all we had a great time and the house was awesome.

David March 2016
The house was great for our party of 10 adults and 2 dogs. It was very conveniently located close to the main street. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook large meals, including spices and miscellaneous supplies. The listing suggested kitchen sponges, hair dryers, and beach towels might not be included, but they were provided for us. There was enough outdoor space for everyone to have an al fresco breakfast on the deck. The house is also only a few minutes drive to Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve. Great for a hike!

Jonathan March 2016
Beautiful and comfortable home with everything we needed for a great stay!

Carol September 2021
Great Escape is just that -- a GREAT Escape!.There is so much room and outside space, everyone should be able to find their own zen area. The neighborhood is quiet, and peaceful. The house is well-stocked with everything -- I mean everything-- you need. A gorgeous back deck with plenty of tables, chairs, and seating areas. The BBQ was perfect (with an extra tank nearby just in case) and the hot tub was clean, warm and heavenly. I would highly recommend this property for families and couples alike. A short walk/drive to downtown Guerneville, or 14 miles to Jenner and beyond. 5 Stars Indeed!

Lea October 2020
We had a great time. Ideal for big groups and really close to all the perks of Guerneville. Thank you for the hospitality!

Ras December 2019
Great place and private location. We stayed 3 nights and it was very peaceful.

"Huge, Spacious, and Well-equipped Home"

5 of 5

Spend a great weekend at the Great Escape house with some friends and had a lovely time. The place was huge with numerous little areas to relax in...some in the sun, some in the shade, some indoor, some out. Whatever time of day, you could go to an area of the house that was comfortable. We spent most of our time on the spacious deck or cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. As far as the bedrooms, two smaller ones had direct access to the deck and hot tub, and the other two larger and more modern ones were on the opposite side of the house, upstairs. The upstairs bathroom was larger than some studio apartments in San Francisco and had a multi-jet shower and deep jacuzzi tub. Overall, the layout of the place felt like one older and one newer house were conjoined by the sunken tile dining room.The location was great. Located between Armstrong Woods and downtown Guerneville, so it look only a few minutes to drive to either location. And it's dog friendly!We had a great time and all felt that we'd like to return to spend more time here.

"Gorgeous Spaces for all our Needs"

5 of 5

We rented Great Escape for a calm girls weekend in celebration of my sister getting married. It was the perfect place for us! We enjoyed dining in the large dining room, eating lunch on the front porch, having morning coffee in the sun room, soaking in the hot tub, and lounging on the warm deck in the day. Everyone slept well and felt comfortable in their space. When we did motivate to leave the house, we were rewarded with delightful walks in the redwoods, happy hour at the local wine bar and beautiful times at the Russian River - all very close by. All the ladies said they would love to come back!

Manager Response:

Thanks for sharing your good experience, and we do hope you will come back sooner rather than later to enjoy both the house and local life again. -Rachel

"perfect place to reconnect"

4 of 5

This lovely cottage home was the perfect blend of old and modern. The space and separation of the bedrooms gave new parents a quiet area, and we were all happy with the quality beds. Pillows were not very good, just too big and firm. The hot tub was clean, hot and full of wonderful jets for every seat. We all enjoyed it in evenings and mornings and the private spacious deck was the greatest spot for reconnecting with family from New Jersey. We will be back to explore again the river and funky dining in Guerneville, as well as enjoy the spa, great bbq, and fabulous family home. Thank you for appointing the home so well.

Manager Response:

Great Escape is like a home within a home. We're glad it worked out so well for your family and you enjoyed the spaciousness of the home and deck. Being only a little more than a mile from downtown Guerneville makes it great home base to explore what our river area has to offer.

"Great location and area."

4 of 5

I brought my family to this house for Thanksgiving, we had six adults, three small children and three dogs. The house accommodated us all very comfortably. The kitchen was well equiped and had everything we needed for cooking. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and patio. The location was great for walking to town and the Redwoods.
