Erica October 2021
The location to everything was great! But also felt like a secluded cabin retreat. Would definitely return for sure!

Tim October 2021
clean, quiet, well appointed kitchen & bath, nice, warm, cozy

Daphne October 2021
Rustic-feeling cabin with all the amenities you need for a relaxing escape! Amazing back deck that overlooks the river was a wonderful place to start the morning with a cup of coffee, and the hot tub was a perfect way to end a long day exploring the area (some of the favorites were Riverfront Regional Park and Sunset Beach). Internet connection was fast, and there is a Roku! Would absolutely come back for another stay at Johnny's Place!

Lex September 2021
This space was so cute, clean and any questions I had were easily answered with the binder provided. The river access was AMAZING, was truly a cute and perfect little space.

Karen August 2021
Great fun time. The location is perfect. So many things to enjoy..Best food, Boon eat + drink, Chalkboard, Fern bar in the the Barlow, Hazels in Occidental, even the little bar on main street in town was very fun. Rivers end was also very nice. Burkes canoe/kayak trip ..such a fun day!! The hot tub and deck is the best!! Used it everyday. So beautiful to have the sunrise through the trees and be enjoying it. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment. The living room is tad smokey .We had brought an air purifier with us because of the fires, seems a staple in our travel these days in Calif! It helped a bit. They also do have two portable fans.. and a ceiling fan. The bedroom is a bit bright from the streetlamp..Wished I had brought eyeshades, but a blanket over the curtain rod worked just as well. Only other thing we wished we had brought were our comfy camping chairs to lounge in on the deck in.. there are dining chairs. Had a lovely lunch with friends and dinner one night. The service company was super helpful and fast in working out glitches.

Jessica August 2021
This is quite a rustic cabin, it is a bit run down and could be cleaner, but we very much enjoyed our stay. The hot tub, access to the river, floating dock, kayaks and gorgeous fireplace very much helped to make ours a lovely stay. Location is also perfect: walking distance to The Oxbow restaurant, minutes from town with restaurants, shops and groceries and 20 minutes from the best vineyards in the Russian River. The cabin is provisioned well with all the basics but we could have used more than two towels. Overall we did enjoy our stay and would go back again.

Jesse August 2021
Great place to restart

Nick July 2021
Great location. The dock was fantastic. communication was clear and set expectations perfectly.

Paul July 2021
We had a great time at this cute cabin in the woods. The perfect place for a one week getaway!

Kate July 2021
Great little spot for a getaway to the river. River access is well maintained and easy. Kayaks are a great amenity which we used - looked like they hadn’t been used in a while though so watch out for spiders - we just gave them a good rinse in the river before using them. Hot tub is amazing. Kitchen is workable - had stove, microwave. You likely won’t be cooking a large meal so small space was all we needed. Grills were clean, easy to operate and where we did most of our cooking. Really lovely that the outdoor space was fenced off as we were able to let the dogs sit and sleep outside mostly. They really enjoyed it and the fluff bed the hosts leave in the house for the dogs. If you have neck/back issues I’d recommend bringing your own pillow. As is the case in most rentals they are a bit worn down. Tv and WiFi worked like a charm. I had service (Verizon) but my husband (att) had some coverage issues throughout Guerneville. Go in to town and visit: equality vines, boon+eat, big bottom market, and baked by the river. We walked in to town - it’s a little tight in some places but was never a true problem even walking dogs with us.

Daniel June 2021
Excellent locations and beautiful home. Views of the river are peaceful. Grill and outdoor space were a welcome refuge. This is one of those rare listings where the reality is even better than the expectations. Can't wait to come back again.

Mia June 2021
Basic and quaint river cabin near downtown Guernville. Make sure you understand the dock installation months if river and boat access are what draw you to this property. The surroundings are lovely but we would have loved to use the dock and boats. What was surprising is every neighbor had their docks already installed so it did not seem to be river depth that prevented installation which is what property management had explained to us before our stay. The cabin is cozy and I’d recommend it for no more than two people and a dog.

Adam May 2021
This cabin was great for our Memorial Day weekend getaway! It’s in a beautiful location that backs onto the Russian River, is surrounded by large trees, and is on a very quiet street tucked away from the main road. The back deck was amazing for relaxing with the pre-heated hot tub, charcoal and gas grills, deck chairs, and an outdoor fridge and freezer. You’re surrounded by nature and it’s very peaceful. Additionally, everything was well maintained and clean, the cabin has a ton of character, and it’s just a short drive from grocery stores and downtown Guerneville. A couple of asides included below, but not intended to negatively reflect on the cabin or location as we still had a great time... If you’re taller than 5’10”, you’re going to have difficulty with the shower. The shower head is very low and at 6’0” the very top of the shower head was in line with my chin...the water even lower than that. I had to basically turn the head to point directly at my face and squat to get water on my head, wash my armpits, etc! Also, double check with the property manager about access to the dock and boats before booking. We arrived and found no dock or boats available for use, and it was only when we looked back at the ad that we found the “seasonal use” language tucked into a paragraph surrounded by other information. There was no warning that we were “out of season” in any of the communication we had prior to our trip. It was a bit frustrating to see the neighbors’ dock and boats out, and watch them enjoying the river directly from their cabin while being unable to do so ourselves. So...if you’re really looking forward to boat and dock use, check in beforehand! With all that said, we still had a great time and enjoyed the cabin. Would book again!

Aaron May 2021
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay here. It definitely has a rustic vibe to it, but for some (like us) this may be exactly what you're looking for. The patio was nice for almost all meals of the day, just make sure you have a mosquito repellent candle/spray on-hand for the evening time. The trees are pretty overgrown and block most of the lake view but you still definitely get the feeling of being close to it. The spa and propane grill were the selling points for us and met our expectations. I'd highly recommend if all of these bits along with the particular location are what you're looking for!

Anu May 2021
While a wonderful location with a nice deck and hot tub overlooking the river, this place really needs to be updated to make it worth the cost per night. I experienced a number of issues including lack of cleanliness, smokiness from a previous fire, furniture that needs replacing, gate that needs repair etc. Also when I reached out to the hosts regarding an issue with the hot tub, their initial response was entirely not helpful - they directed me to call the spa company myself to troubleshoot the issue rather than helping to figure it out. Given these issues, they refunded me some of the cost, which I appreciated.

Rachael May 2021
The location was good, great fenced area for dogs, beautiful hot tub under the redwoods. However, unless the dock is out it is not possible to access the water. It looks like other guests may have tried to use a rope to bridge the gap between the stairs and the water but it would be challenging to get in and out. The furniture was not in very good shape and it definitely doesn’t fit 4. The sofa bed is really small and doesn’t work properly. The other couple with us ended up booking a different spot for the night. The deck area was really nice and it was peaceful and quiet during the week.

Response from Russian River Getaways May 2021
Thank you for the review and feedback, Rachael. The sofabed is a queen, but we will take a look at it and repair as needed. Our apologies it was not working well for you. The main reason for a dock on the river is that the water cannot be reached without one, usually due to a very steep slope, and that is definitely true for Johnny's. We assumed that no access without the dock would be clear from the photos, but we added it to the description just to be extra sure guests completely understand the situation. We do hope you found other ways to enjoy the beautiful river and beautiful weather we've been having. -Rachel

Anil May 2021
Amazing, classic cabin right along Russian River. Cozy, warm, beautiful location.

Jennifer April 2021
simply delightful! wifi works super great - easily connected to work via VPN for emails, spreadsheets and such; no problems streaming music (indoors ). hot tub on the smaller side (good for 2, 3 is cozy, 4’s a crowd) but gets nice and hot and you can’t beat soaking under the redwoods! easy parking for two vehicles within the gated front yard area. kitchen is cozy but very functional and had everything we needed for cooking all meals at home. full size fridge on the deck right outside the door was a handy bonus! seasonal dock not installed yet (too early which we knew) but made use of the metal stairs anyway to hop right into the river and enjoy the water and direct sunshine. neighbors are indeed close but we still felt like we were in our own private little world. quiet and peaceful area - birdwatchers paradise! (at least in april - summer might be a bit more active in terms of rowdy guests at other homes nearby - sound does travel easily and far on the river!) ENJOY your time at johnny’s landing!

Shaina April 2021
We LOVED our stay at Johnny’s - the cabin is cozy and well appointed. You cannot beat the views from the deck and there’s nothing better than a hot tub soak while hearing the Russian River in the back. The kitchen, while tiny, was perfect for meals. The location could not be better! The fenced yard made it easy to bring our small dog. We will be back!

Elisa April 2021
Cute small little cabin right next to the river. It was a perfect spot for a get away for two plus a dog. Though the neighbors are close, it was a peaceful spot.

Kara
March 2021 WOW- what a beautiful and stunning stay we had! can’t wait to return. The place is right on the river- and truly what better way to end your day than soaking in the hot top overlooking the river underneath the moon. Everything was truly perfect- thank you!

Melissa March 2021
Cute and rustic little cabin right on the river. Loved the deck and hot tub, and even though the neighbors were close, it was very quiet and felt private. We didn’t use the fireplace, but there was a very heavy wood smoke smell in the house, which might bother someone who is sensitive. We did have to keep the kitchen window cracked, but we barely noticed and the heaters worked great. The kitchen is pretty small and old, but it’s functional for basic and simple meals.

Ralph March 2021
This was such cozy place for us to get away for a few days! The space was comfy and the hot tub amongst the redwoods overlooking the Russian River was magical.

Cerina March 2021
What a cozy, quaint cottage to be nestled among the redwoods. This AirBnB was so relaxing with the fireplace and the hot tub outside. We loved the outside just as much as the interior of the cabin. The road to here gets fairly puddled after the rain - our car with lowish clearance was able to drive through the puddles safely. This was a very easy place to fall asleep in whether you're outside or inside. Will definitely book again.

Francis March 2021
Wonderful place to stay!

Veronica March 2021
We loved this cabin, the location and look forward to rebooking again sometime soon.

Claire February 2021
A lovely place for 2 people to stay especially in the winter. Cozy and beautiful scenery. A perfect getaway under the redwoods.

Dani February 2021
We had a great week here! The location felt secluded, but we were only two minutes from downtown Guerneville. The cabin was cozy and had all we needed. We especially enjoyed the hot tub with views of the river.

Lily December 2020
The cutest cabin!! We had a wonderful time!!!

Paul December 2020
Everything it’s made up to be in the listing. Cozy cabin with everything you need, an amazing retreat, and the hot tub has a fantastic private view.

Sara December 2020
Very charming little cabin right on the river. Very relaxing and private feeling. Heating situation a little funky, kitchen window required to stay open a crack, and we had a little trouble with the wall heater. Staff was quick to respond to our needs. Kitchen small but cute and functional. Lovely deck overlooking river. Beautiful! Worked out great for our anniversary trip.

Vinh November 2020
Nice place to stay right on the Russian River near Guerneville.

Justin October 2020
Really cute space on the River. Amazing deck with redwoods growing right out of them. Hot tub time!

Annette October 2020
It was a lovely & quiet place to stay for 4 nights. Spacious for two of us and our small dog. The place is mostly shaded. Only 3 mins to the downtown for groceries/dining, and 6 mins to Monte Rio beach that is dog friendly. Would love to return in the summer when there is a dock to get into the water.

Claire October 2020
A wonderful stay: River View, hot tub, boat launch, fireplace, and great grounds. Ideal for a small family visit (such as ours). We’ll be back again!

Luke October 2020
Nice place to get away.

Maribel October 2020
Great location

Katherine July 2020
We had a lovely stay at this charming house on the river. The private dock and kayaks were a huge plus! We also enjoyed the beautiful redwood trees all around the property.

Berta July 2020
Had an amazing time, the cabin exceed our expectations, the location was quite and surrounded by beautiful redwoods. Very close to store and national park.

Jenny June 2020
I want to say that I hated this place so that it doesn’t book up so I can stay more, but I can’t. We had a wonderful time and it was a great getaway from the city.

Ryan March 2020
The best little get away! Hot tub is enjoyable with the river directly beneath you. Cozy little cabin! We will be back!

Zack March 2020
Great place!!! Loved my time at the river getaway.

Leslie February 2020
We had a great stay at this adorable cottage. Rustic but super comfortable and charming. There is a bit of a draft in the winter because the kitchen window has to stay cracked open, but the heaters kept us warm and there plenty of blankets around too. We enjoyed both the fireplace and the hot tub, and we had a wonderful weekend!

Hannah February 2020
Had such a great time! Space was cozy and clean, perfect for a low key weekend away.

Michelle January 2020
This cozy cabin is perfect for a couple and a dog! My partner and I were fortunate enough to stay here when no other neighbors were around, making it feel extra special and quiet. During the summer months I’m not sure you would get the same feeling of privacy, but for the winter it was a weekend full of rest and relaxation!

Melanie January 2020
The host canceled this reservation 28 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Kristina January 2020
Great location & views of the river. We enjoyed the hot tub one night in 40* weather. Right near town for food choices and there was even a place that delivered. Comfy bed and giant fireplace. Would like to come back soon.

Liana December 2019
This place was amazing! Like previous reviews, it’s small so I’d suggest no more than 2 people. At the time of our stay, the wall heater was not working but they did go ahead and provide us firewood which helped a lot but it was not enough for the whole 3 days as the house does get quite cold. That being the only negative thing about our stay! The place was cozy, and the hot tub was a nice added touch. We might make this place our yearly Christmas tradition. It was quiet, and relaxing the whole time. We will definitely be back!

Response from Russian River Getaways December 2019
We love hearing you enjoyed your holiday at Johnny's, Liana, and we can't wait for you to come back! Plus, the wall heater is already fixed, so you will have heat along with the fabulous fireplace and bedroom heater! -Rachell

Shina November 2019
Beautiful place, amazing hot tub and view over the river. Well stocked with everything you need!

Caitlin November 2019
The perfect cabin retreat for two (plus a lazy dog)! We have decided to make a pre-Thanksgiving cabin getaway part of our holiday tradition and would seriously consider coming to this property again (or another in the River Getaway's management). The place has great stylish touches, very 1930s rustic, with lots of great places to sit and relax. The hot tub is in the perfect spot, nestled among redwood trees. While there is sleeping room for two in the room + two in the living room, I would strongly recommend this place for two only or perhaps two and one child. Since the bathroom is the entryway to the bedroom, it's can be tough to split-up bathroom time, especially if you like your bathroom time to be ultra private (bring headphones). The location is very convenient to downtown Guerneville, about a mile to a grocery store, restaurants, etc., but you still feel secluded on the property. Regarding other's comments about privacy, the property directly next to us didn't appear to be occupied during our stay, but there is a fence between the two back decks—you would have to TRY to see each other, but I imagine during a busier time, you may hear your neighbors. I also love the feeling of inclusivity in Guerneville—for any out-of-towners, it's a very welcoming, diverse community, not always an easy find in mountain towns. In other words: I highly recommend this place. I didn't want to leave after even four days of staying just at the cabin.

Caitlin October 2019
Great communication, even though the booking was canceled due to an evacuation in the area (which directly effected the hosts, so extra kudos for good communication in a time of stress!). The host kept me in the loop and let me know what to do to accommodate our booking at another time.

Neighbors are definitely very close like some of the other reviews described. We were lucky that there weren’t much noises tho! The cabin is perfect size for 2 but don’t think you can comfortably fit more than that. Jacuzzi was placed at a very nice spot with nice view! If the price is cheaper, we would love to revisit again.

Shannon September 2019
Wonderful,relaxing an quiet,we loved it.

Aaron September 2019
Hot tub was hot, internet was fast, but the neighbors are very close, and if the rental next door is occupied you have no privacy outdoors (their deck is elevated and so they look directly down into the hot tub and you can hear EVERYTHING they are saying - oops). Very small, rustic, and DARK interior. Good for hiding away from the world for a weekend, but bring your own entertainment, and the mini fridge in the kitchen will not keep your ice cream frozen overnight - should have used the big one on the back deck, I guess. In season, cool access to the river with two working kayaks. Local town of Guerneville interesting, charming, quirky, with a Safeway for essentials, and lots of neat restaurants. Local hiking not far away. mostly no cell reception - STUDY (Hidden by Airbnb) maps to figure out how to find it BEFORE you come (especially at night).

Matthew August 2019
We love this location and this had been our 5th time visiting. Everything was perfect as usual.

Lisette August 2019
A great little cabin right on the river, as soon as you walk in you’re hit with the smell of redwood trees which was amazing. The photos accurately depict the cabin but the layout would make having a group of friends stay there tricky, as you have to walk through the bathroom to get to the bedroom. I was also surprised to find that it is actually in a little neighborhood! But the way it’s setup once you’re on the property you can’t really tell there’s anyone else around. Overall a great little hideaway. Very relaxing, quiet, and peaceful vibe which is what we wanted since we have a small infant. I didn’t get to use the floating dock, it looks like it is primarily for launching kayaks or rafts for tubing which is a convenient feature.

Cibelle August 2019
We really enjoyed our stay. It was nice to be so close to town. Really nice to enjoy the river on weekdays when it was quiet. The hot tub is awesome and the deck is very private!

Matthew July 2019
Excellent location. Very clean and quiet.

Danielle And Stoyan July 2019
The place is alright but the river access is terrible - not family or dog friendly in any way.

Symone June 2019
Rustic cabin charm. Beautiful views of the river. If you tend to get cold at night (like I do) I would suggest bringing your own blankets as they do not supply more than the thin one. The couch pullout seems to be broken, worn down, it stays slanted. The seasonal dock still not installed 6/21-6/24 so if river time is what you want plan on driving to one of the beaches and make sure you pack your own chairs, umbrellas, coolers, floats, towels..etc. there are two kayaks and oars that are locked up. I had made the mistake of assuming more river gear would be available to borrow. The fireplace is amazing. The views and grounds are peaceful. Overall feels like visiting a family cabin. For the price I did expect more amenities but the cabin is special in its own way. Just wanted to give a heads up to the next quest.

Response from Russian River Getaways June 2019
Thanks for the review and feedback, Symone. This year's unusually late rains are making for late installation of the dams, which translates to late installation of many docks (each dock system/river bank is unique). That said, we are sorry for your disappointment and hope that you were able to enjoy those awesome public beaches, boat (and umbrella!) rentals included. The sofabed will be replaced asap, and we will review the linens. We appreciate your bringing this to our attention. Please know also that you can always call us while you are in house, and we will help you out with anything we can - special delivery of warm blankets available! -Rachel

The Best!

Gina June 2019
Overall, would highly recommend this as a place to stay - nothing beats chilling in the jacuzzi in-between the river and a redwood in a quaint forested cabin on the hill. Pros: Johnny's landing was adorable - loved how the deck was built around the redwoods, had a nice view of the river and a jacuzzi! It was the perfect weekend getaway that we needed. Very quiet, peaceful, serene ambiance. There was two types of grills and a beautiful back patio space. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. Super close to very cute bars/restaurants and walking distance to river access. Cons: I do not recommend staying with more than 2 people as the pullout couch was rough. It was broken when we opened it up and very tattered, lopsided and uncomfortable. They also did not have any sheets in the house to put on the pullout couch. The pots and pans were very old/used - would recommend bringing your own if you plan on cooking. It is mid-June and 90 degrees but the seasonal dock and boats were not installed so we could not get into the river from the property because there was no way to get out.

Response from Russian River Getaways June 2019
Thank you for the feedback about the couch, we will definitely look into replacing it! We are sorry that you were not able to enjoy the dock, due to late rains effecting dock instillation. We hope you were still able to have a nice visit, and we hope you come back and visit the Russian River soon! -Alyssa

Dan May 2019
This cabin on the river is everything that we were hoping for and more. It comes equipped with all amenities that we needed and was centrally located to wineries, downtown Guernville and stunning hikes. Communication and check in process was flawless. We can’t wait to come back to this gem soon.

Kathryn May 2019
Such an amazing house! Perfectly fenced in for the dogs and the kitchen being fully stocked with everything to cook a full dinner was great! The bed was super comfy as well. We will definitely be back!

Christopher May 2019
Quaint forest cabin with a 50’s feel, right on the river, spacious lot, house was clean and neat, very comfortable bed...a perfect get away spot. Definitely recommend!

Jillian April 2019
Incredible place!!!!! It was exactly perfect. Great hot tub, great view, perfect space with everything we needed!!!

Carrie April 2019
We LOVED our weekend get away here!! It was the perfect quick trip to get out of the city and relax. The hot tub overlooking the river was amazing. The cabin was super cute and great for a couple. It was exactly what we were looking for!

Katie April 2019
Adorable cabin in a fantastic setting. Loved all the original details and charm! Very peaceful next to the river, enjoyed lots of time in the hot tub while looking out at the river. Just what my husband, our dog and I needed!

Matt March 2019
Great spot, decent location. Weather was too rainy to try out the hot tub or spend much time on the deck, but it's clear they keep it clean. Would love to come back during nicer weather.

Filip March 2019
We had wonderful stay at Johnny's Landing. It's a beautiful wooden house with deck overlooking Russian River, hot tub, wood fireplace, etc. We loved how in the morning the deck is all sunny, which is where we had lovely breakfast every day of our stay (and it was warm enough to sit there in t-shirts even in mid March). The only tricky thing to navigate was heating system, we were either too hot or too cold for most of the stay.

Derek February 2019
The deck hot tub next to the river was amazing on a cold night.

Steven February 2019
Nice cabin with steps down to the river. Deck + hot tub have a great view. Very comfortable.

Gabe January 2019
Such a great little cabin to have our quiet New Years celebration. The heater and fireplace made everything super cozy as it was chilly outside. The electric blanket on the master bed was super nice. The little kitchen was perfect. The hot tub felt very private and was the perfect size for the three of us. The big yard was nice and entirely enclosed so we could let our dog run around without worrying. Thank you!

Lindsey December 2018
The cabin is quaint and rustic, though the furnishings are uncomfortable and poorly placed in the living area (placed too far from each other and from the fireplace, which made socializing and staying warm difficult). There is no dining table inside and it was cold and rainy outside, so we had to sit on the floor and eat at the coffee table. Given the high price we paid to stay here, the lack of a comfortable/practical interior layout was a bit of a bummer. We enjoyed cooking in the well-stocked kitchen, and the bed was comfy.

Kristina December 2018
The cabin is cute and simple...exactly as pictured in the posting. The hosts were quick to respond and very helpful. A beautiful spot but a bit overpriced for the value.

Matthew November 2018
These guys are awesome.

Andrea November 2018
This cabin is cute and rustic, albeit a bit old. It's a little rough around the edges inside, but the outside amenities are great and I think it would be fantastic during the summer months. Unfortunately when we were there it was during the period in which major smoke from the Camp Fire inundated the region and we were pretty much stuck indoors. The hot tub was perfect for the two of us.

David October 2018
The location is great with a deck that overlooks the river and hot tub under the trees.

Mark October 2018
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was rustic, but comfortable. The neighbors were a bit closer than expected and the yard could use some minor cleanup. Overall a pleasant stay.

Charles October 2018
Great communication, detailed check-in info, and what to expect (hot tub, wifi, etc).

Matthew September 2018
Our cabin was very clean and the grounds were well kept. We were right on the river, and it was very quiet and quite a treat sitting in the hot tub overlooking the river. We came to the country to relax and unwind and we are very happy with our experience. Thank you River Getaways. Great services, and nice people. :)

Megan September 2018
Great place to sit on the deck enjoying the redwoods, the river, and a bbq. The cabin is charming and rustic. If you don't mind a space that feels a bit outdated and in need of some minor TLC, you'll be happy here. Although it is located close to town, it's not really safe to walk on the side of the highway, so you should expect to drive to town.

Kay September 2018
Fabulous! Our favorite getaway cabin.

Cindy September 2018
Super rustic and cozy cabin right on the Russian River! It has its own dock for swimming and kayaking. The deck area is perfect for hanging out and eating all your meals and then you can soak in the hot tub while looking over the river! The cabin is small but perfect for two people. The kitchen is well stocked. Russian River Getaways were very easy to work with and communicated well. It was a perfect weekend for us!

Candace September 2018
This is a dreamy vintage cabin with classic decor. We LOVED it. Huge redwoods line the street. When you breathe the air here, you can really feel it in your lungs. Just wonderful. This was a perfect base to explore the wine country, the coast, and all the charming towns in between. We'd return in a heartbeat. Thank you.

Hyan August 2018
Spent a great weekend at the cabin. There was a hot tub and kayaks which we used multiple times during our stay. The only unpleasant part was someone had left dog poop in the stairs leading down to the dock and the management had not cleaned it up but otherwise a wonderful place to stay!

Response from Russian River Getaways August 2018
Sounds like your stay was nice and you enjoyed this house. Sorry about the doggy poop that was left. You can always call us here at the office for anything you need and we will make it right. Thank you for being great guests! ~Maile

Amber August 2018
Beautiful and quiet location on the Russian River. The cabin is very old and has not been updated in some time. The cabin was clean enough, but many spiderwebs inside and outside of the cabin. The outside yard area is very cute but there are no outside lights so we weren't able to enjoy the swing or hammock in the later hours of the evening. I am a bit sensitive to smells and this cabin definitely has some character when it comes to scent. The shower is very small and would be hard for anyone over 6' to take a shower. We had a lovely time but I wouldn't rebook this cabin, it was a little to rustic and dated for my taste. The bed was comfortable but the floor droops in some places so it takes a little getting used to.

Response from Russian River Getaways August 2018
Thank you Amber for your feedback and we do appreciate your honesty. Some guest prefer the more rustic feel of this cabin and for guest like your self I would maybe recommend something more updated. Thank you for being a wonderful guest! ~Maile

Joseph August 2018
This little cabin on the river was our Russian River dream come true. The house has the most wonderful smell of the woods and is charming beyond words. The setting is unbelievably beautiful and the dock and kayaks are just icing on an already gorgeous cake. Could not be happier with our stay.

Kirk July 2018
Very cute small getaway cabin. It was great lounging, hot tubbing and having meals on the deck overlooking the river. The private dock with the use of the kayaks was just the thing we were looking for. Very private feel all around in a beautiful wooded setting.

Peter July 2018
Wonderful spot, this place oozes character, like being transported back in time. If you want the perfect log cabin experience this is the place for you. There is an aroma of 1000 log fires, perfect temperature, wonderful views, comfortable furniture, and the perfect little kitchen. Wonderful getaway for anyone in the Bay Area as it is only 90min from San Francisco.

Kamran July 2018
This was a very quaint and rustic little cabin in a fantastic location. Having private dock access (albeit, a small dock) was amazing, as was the hot tub on the deck. The cabin had a classic, older feel, but was still very clean. The personnel running the vacation rental company were incredibly responsive and nice. We had a great 4th of July weekend!

Kay June 2018
Fabulous getaway retreat with everything you could ask for!

Dianne June 2018
The view from the hot tub of the river and the trees is fantastic. The cabin was a cute rustic getaway location.

Tiago June 2018
Beautiful charming cabin. Highly recommended. River access

Kip May 2018
Great classic cabin in the middle of the redwoods with a hot tub overlooking the river. We had a quick but very relaxing weekend trip; cabin was comfy with a big fireplace and location was close to great restaurants (Seaside Metal) and wineries (Porter Creek). Highly recommend.

David April 2018
Tucked away under the trees and on the river, a perfect getaway. The log cabin made us feel like we were lost in time and location. Also very close to Guerneville stores and bars!

Christopher April 2018
Very close to downtown Guerneville; can easily walk along the highway into town for a quick bite to eat or drink. The cabin is very cozy with a nook like kitchen. The spa is the highlight: surrounded by beautiful treesand a perfect spot to watch the river.

John April 2018
This place is right on the river. It is very cozy and small, but for my wife and I it was plenty big. It appears that you wouldn't be able to see the dock from the house or deck which would be worrisome if the kids were playing on the dock. The staff managing the place is very nice and great and responsive. I would recommend for the getaway.

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2018
Thanks for the review and recommendation, John! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Johnny's and hope you'll be back. For future reference, very few docks in this area are visible from the house, so, if this is important to you, I suggest asking the host plenty of questions ahead of time. -Rachel

Melissa February 2018
Exactly what I expected!! What a great little spot!

John February 2018
Johnny's Landing was everything we we wanted for a weekend getaway: a cozy, dog-friendly cabin on the river minutes from downtown Guerneville. The house is charmingly rustic and creates an experience of being nestled away in a remote cabin in the woods. Our favorite features were the fenced yard for the dogs to run around in, the comfortable bed, the river view from the hot tub, and the large fireplace that transforms the living into a warm, inviting space to snuggle up in. I would choose to stay here again next time we come to the Russian River.

Erin January 2018
If you are seeking a one of a kind rustic and charming little cabin in the redwoods on the river this is the spot! It’s a tiny and charming cabin in a neighborhood setting with original old school character. The rock fireplace was right out of a fairytale! We visited in the winter and brought our own wood as it is not supplied. The front garden was sweet and I imagine in warmer seasons would be a great spot to hangout as well as the back deck

Tom January 2018
Charming spot, and perfect for our days off. Can imagine that during warm days on the river its perfect to just walk down steps to swim and boat!

Alison November 2017
Amazing location with a hot tub overlooking the river. Such a tiny and cozy log cabin, ideal for 2. We used the fireplace all weekend as the place is quite cold without it. Loved being able to have fires! We were very cozy and would definitely come back again. Also, I left something there and the property management company found it and are mailing to me. Great service! Thank you so much!

Katherine November 2017
Wonderful, relaxing getaway. It was everything we were hoping for!

Breno November 2017
This place is amazing. Cozy and close to the best of Guerneville. Spotless clean!

Jeff September 2017
The rustic cabin was great and was exactly what we were looking for. The setting is amazing - secluded and nestled in the redwoods right by the Russian River. The deck with the hot tub is built around the redwoods in the back yard. We had a great time.

Colette September 2017
Gorgeous rustic cabin, quiet but close to town.

Megan July 2017
The place was great. Loved that you could walk down to the water and how close it was to the downtown guernville.

Shihping Nancy May 2017
Great one bedroom cabin. We loved having breakfast in the redwood forest overlooking the Russian river. Kids & Dog friendly. Highly recommend!

Katie May 2017
The cabin was adorable on the river. We used the fire place and the hot tub, it was a great weekend getaway. Close enough that we could walk to town for meals and close to wineries. A very special place for a weekend away!

Valory April 2017
It is a few steps below rustic & not very clean. The pictures show lots of outdoor space which is very deceiving. They definitely took liberties with the pictures. A huge disappointment for our vacation.

Lindsey April 2017
Very cute little cottage in a great tranquil location. One of our favorite rentals of all time. Especially good for dog owners - very securely fenced back yard.

Lauren April 2017
There was a very scenic view from the patio and the hot tub over looks the river and is pretty private from the neighbors. The gas grill looks pretty rusted out, so I wouldn't cook on it without laying down foil. You must bring everything you need if you want to cook (including salt, pepper, oil etc) and you must bring your own firewood if you want to make a fire. This place is in a great location close to downtown Guerneville but far enough removed you don't hear any of the downtown noise. It's also driving distance to many excellent wineries. The bed in the bedroom was comfortable and the hot tub was amazing.

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2017
Thanks for the review Lauren! We're glad you enjoyed the little log cabin with the amazing view (from the hot tub!) so close to town (can you tell Johnny's is one of my favorites?) and hope you'll be back! We will definitely check out the grill and get it cleaned up or replaced, whatever is necessary. Rachel, Russian River Getaways

Nicolas April 2017
Great location and hot tub, but poor cleanliness and light inside the place... too pricey.

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2017
Thanks for the review Nicolas! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay, location and hot tub. We've notified the housekeeper, who usually does a great cleaning job, of your concerns. Please note that this is an historic log cabin, so it also does not "clean up" the way a more modern home would. Some people love that rustic feel, and others don't. In any case, we hope you'll be back to the Russian River area, hopefully staying at a home that better meets your expectations. Rachel, Russian River Getaways

Angela March 2017
My husband and I stayed for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary with our three dogs. I was delighted that there was no issue having the three of them stay with us as we enjoy bringing them along. The entire yard and deck is fenced which is very helpful for the four-legged children. The location was quiet and remote, exactly what we were looking for. The hot tub overlooks the river and is very peaceful. We were pleasantly surprised by the hiking options nearby and it was awesome that we were so close to Healdsburg as it's our favorite part of wine country. We used the gas grill on the deck many times during our stay and it worked well. The pots and pans are nothing fancy but got the job done for breakfast and lunch. The path to the river was open but kayaks weren't available during our stay. We'd love to go back to kayak down the river during the summer months. If you're looking for a quaint cabin in the woods for a quiet and peaceful stay, you definitely want to check this place out!

Courtney March 2017
The property was perfect for two of us and a dog. The location is extremely convenient. The home was cleaner than the photos made it look. The outdoor area was charming and provided many good spots for reading and relaxing. The grill and outdoor table made for perfect daytime meals. The hot tub was well maintained. We visited in March so it was chilly at night. The heater didn't work and we were definitely wearing layers inside. They provided electric blankets in the bed which were amazing. The provisions (soap, olive oil etc.) were very bare bones, but safeway is only a few minutes away. Check-in and out were easy since the office was only 4 minutes away. I wish they used the airbnb platform for communication. They only provide information through their proprietary app they require you download. This is run by a property management company and they seem very strict about use. They provided multiple documents explaining all the extra charges we might incur even after we paid the $145 cleaning fee. We tend to be extremely tidy guests and we felt on edge the whole weekend.

Katie And Chris February 2017
Cozy cabin, perfect for two folks and a dog. The deck on the river was great even though it was so rainy. Easy check-in. We'd happily stay again! Thanks so much!

Nicole January 2017
Cozy, comfortable & perfect for a couple with a dog. The fireplace & hot tub are fabulous!

Megan January 2017
River Getaways was great. It would have been nice to have beding for each bed. The house was quaint and cozy. Great for a rainy weekend.

Jeff December 2016
Cozy cabin, very spacious for two people and our two pups. Pilot light on heater went out first night. Wifi never worked properly. Oddly no dish soap in kitchen. host resolved issues after the stay. Would make a return visit.

Meghan October 2016
We had a lovely weekend in October at the cabin. It rained a bunch but the deck, hottub, and cabin were great. Better than expected - the pictures don't do it justice. It's small - but perfect for my husband, myself and our 3 month old for the week.

Gina October 2016
My husband and I came to Johnny's for our anniversary. We wanted a private, quiet getaway and that is exactly what we got! The cabin is nestled in the trees and is charming and rustic. Our dog had a blast running around and we thoroughly enjoyed our time away. The hot tub was so relaxing! The whole thing was quite picturesque with the river down below the deck. Overall, we had a wonderful time and a beautiful trip. There was one aspect of our stay that I wish had been different. Upon check-in, the host advised that I was not to call them with questions as the answers to everything I would need were in a binder inside the cabin. After the first night the furnace stopped working (we didn't touch anything after turning it on, and it had worked just fine up to that point). I thoroughly read through the binder (twice) but there was nothing about what to do if it went out. There was a note on the kitchen window instructing us to leave the window cracked at all times or the pilot lights would go out. I don't know if that was referring to the stove, the furnace, or both, but we left it open the entire time. I probably should have called for help at that point but didn't. I take responsibility for not calling but felt too uncomfortable to do so. As we only had two nights for our anniversary trip I didn't want to risk an unpleasant interaction. I would have felt much better if I knew they would have been willing to help out with the problem. That being said, that little blip wasn't enough to negate all the great things about our experience. It was truly a lovely, relaxing and romantic getaway that we will remember fondly.

Kelly September 2016
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was such a wonderful experience. The cabin was quaint, rustic and very comfortable. If you are looking for a cozy cabin in the woods to hang out by the fireplace or relax in a hot tub overlooking the river this is definitely the place to use. We didn't want to leave. It's only a 15 min walk to town or a 3 min drive. So close to great bars and restaurants. My only issue was that the post shows a picture with a dock and kayaks on the river, this was the neighbors actually. This place had just a stair case that leads to the water and some inner tubes. If this is important to your trip, you may want to consider somewhere else or rent kayaks. Lovely place, I would definitely stay there again.

Response from Russian River Getaways September 2016
Hello Again Kelly, Just to let you know, this home does have it's own private dock. However, the owners of river homes take them out once the season is over and the dams are removed for the winter. The pictures were of this homes just unfortunately for the spring and summer.

Kris September 2016
Finding the office and getting the keys could have gone a little smoother. Other than that the house and our stay was really nice. The location is very privet. It is still close to town for shopping and dining. Lush and green everywhere! The home is very comfortable with lots of seating and lighting. Sitting on the deck and using the spa was so relaxing it was hard to leave. Very quite and comfortable. The queen bed seemed small, but it was comfortable. Lot's to do in the area, hiking,fishing, rafting etc. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Jessie August 2016
Johnny's was quiet and peaceful. Great for a small family, too small for more than that though. Enjoyed the hot tub and river access, only wished the weather was better. The sleeper couch was really uncomfortable to sleep on. To the point where the floor was a better option. Kitchen was cute and had everything we needed. Deck was great and outdoor space was perfect for our small dog. Would stay here again!

Jason June 2016
This was my first "managed" AirBnB property and it was a great experience. Everyone made us feel welcome and the process was very thorough from check-in to check-out. The property was just as it's described and was very clean and warm and comfortable. We enjoyed the deck and hot tub overlooking the river and all the amenities of the cabin were perfect for a couple days of BBQing and relaxing.

Vas May 2016
Great house--and quite private. Loved it and would go back again. Loved the hottub and the deck. Ah, miss it already. Please do keep in mind that the bathroom is in between the bedroom and the living room --and so traps people in the bedroom while another person is using the bathroom.

James May 2016
As quaint as it appears online. The bed is superb and comfortable, as are the sofa and chairs. Great location near town and don't let the highway proximity scare you - we couldn't hear it even in the slightest (and one of us, uh hum, is sensitive to noise). Our only complaint would be very limited supplies (ie: we had salt, but not even things like sugar, pepper, olive oil, shampoo, bar of soap...the basics), so you have to bring everything with you. Also, no outdoor pillows or hammock that we could find, so the outdoor space was limited to the deck and hot tub. Great place and would stay again.

Sean May 2016
Beautiful cabin on the Russian River, lovely deck and great views of the river.

Chris May 2016
This was probably the worst Airbnb experience to date. Here is the short list of things that annoyed me: - I had to download, sign, and return a separate waiver. Is Airbnb's TOS not good enough? - I had to download a separate mobile app before I could gain access to the house. - I had to drive to a separate place (Russian River Resorts) to pickup (and return) keys. - The place advertised a fireplace and bbq. There was no firewood, kindling, or briquettes. - There was no soap or shampoo provided. - The house rules states that towels and such are to be put into the washing and the machine turned on prior to leaving. - The list of penalties is tiring ($20 per item left at the house as a recovery fee) - 3pm checkin time (I'm a full day price for less than 1/2 a day) The house was nice and comfortable and close to town. Not sure I'd use a resort company turned pseudo-Airbnb host again.

Response from Russian River Getaways May 2016
We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry you did not have a flawless experience, Chris. However, we're glad the house was comfortable and you enjoyed the proximity to town! Russian River Getaways is proud to have 90% of our homes offering keyless entry, however, a few homes (including Johnny's Landing) don't have doors that are compatible with a keyless entry system. Therefore, we ask guests of these homes to pick up keys from our office at their convenience. The mobile app is not mandatory to download, but it's a great tool for storing your reservation info as well as a helpful directory of local attractions, restaurants and businesses. In the home's description on Airbnb, we try to be as detailed as possible about what amenities are and are not included. Thank you again for your feedback. We hope you're able to find a more suitable experience on your next trip to the Russian River!

Sara April 2016
My husband, our 5 month old son and our dog spent the week in the Russian River Valley at Johnny's! The place was perfect. First of all if you're looking for rustic charm, the aesthetics and setting are perfect. It's a true getaway without being in the middle of nowhere. We spend mornings and evenings in the hot tub on the deck looking out over the river and even though the houses next door are close the back deck is completely private and feels secluded. The house itself had everything we needed for the week and even though the kitchen is a little on the small side, we easily cooked ourselves big meals every night. We went during a time of year when the dock was not in and the river was pretty cold so we didn't take advantage of the river much but it didn't matter, the place was still 100% worth it. The location of the cabin was great as we were able to quickly get to the coast and also into wine country. The yard is completely enclosed which was great for our dog to run around. We will definitely be returning to Johnny's if we find ourselves back up in the area.

Cecily April 2016
We had a wonderful stay at this riverside log cabin. The home was well appointed and as advertised. We enjoyed the hot tub, dinner on the deck, walks to the nearby beach for fishing, a couple of the town's restaurants, and the garden. Our sons occupied themselves for hours looking for bugs and salamanders. We hope to be back in the summer!

Shawn March 2016
we loved it, you need better pictures because the place was much nicer than we thought it would be.

Tim February 2016
The house was very nice. Neighbors are a little close, but they were quiet and respectful. The check in/check out process is simple and quick.
