4.52 · 115 reviews Thais Thais February 2022 Our stay was great. The house had everything as described. We had a little problem with the oven not working and Bridgette was super helpful and got it fixed fairly quick. Hoping to stay there again during the summer Matt Matt February 2022 Spacious beyond what you think from the description. Beautiful setting in the redwoods. Bonnie Bonnie February 2022 We had a good time for our weekend in Sonoma county. Close to the ocean and several great wineries. The house was set up with the basics inside plus hot tub and fire pit for outdoor enjoyment! The stairs are definitely narrow and uneven so be careful. Floors inside are also uneven so beware if you’re unsteady on your feet! Michelle Michelle January 2022 This place is fantastic! We really enjoyed our stay here and plan on returning. Mila Mila December 2021 Beautiful location, wonderful communication, and the home exceeded our expectations :) Our dog loved it too! John John December 2021 A beautiful spacious two level home, the two decks were great for outdoor meals by the fire pit, barbecuing on the grill, and hanging in the hot tub. The outdoor spaces were especially welcome due to our group who wished to stay masked indoors, but we could easily socialize outdoors unmasked. The hosts were extremely responsive, answering our questions, and accommodating our requests. We’re very grateful for the space and time in the woods at this beautiful home. Rachel Rachel November 2021 The listing is accurate. Lots of steps and narrow, limited parking. Not an issue for my group, but be aware. Great location, loved the outdoor decks and hot tub. Plenty of beds, lots of warm water in the showers. Some interesting repairs throughout the house, pretty significantly sloped foundation, screwed in floorboards in front of the dishwasher, patched walls and some water damage. Lightly scratched floors. Pretty sparse. No games or puzzles which wasn’t listed and isn’t required, it was just a first for us. Overall a good stay. Ben Ben November 2021 A lovely, quirky house just off the main road. Perfect location, really nice hot tub, and tons of space for lots of folks. Highly recommend! Samantha Samantha November 2021 We had a great vacation of mom and daughters who got away from busy city. It was like staying in cabin in the woods, quiet relaxation in the woods. We went for a drive through out the country with great picturesque views and great wine tasting. We enjoyed evenings in cozy chatting and playing board games. Hot tubbing one night and next barbecuing. Highly recommend! Josh Josh November 2021 Great location to go to many places. Nice size place for a small group of people. Hot tub was a nice and relaxing before bed. Some things could use some updating bit overall a good place. Spent most our time going to one of the many places around the area, beach was just 20 minutes away. Many wineries. Jen Jen October 2021 Russian River Getaways was fabulous to deal with. Very prompt and helpful with their replies. This two-star review is in direct response to the condition of this rental home. A few things to note with this rental: 1. Disgusting and broken furniture. The furniture is so gross, we didn't really want to use it. The couch, chairs and a couple of beds are completely falling apart. The fabric on the couch, futon and chairs is so gross, I don't think it could be cleaned enough to make it sitable. They really need to replace them all. The bed in one of my friend's rooms was broken so badly, it was tilting. 2. Smell. The house has an EXTREMELY stale smell. Not sure if it's just because it's old, or if a smoker lived there at one time, but it's pretty bad. 3. Not clean. Aside from the disgusting furniture, the house generally felt unclean. For example, we found a banana chip under the futon (seemed to get dehydrated from just being under there for so long. 4. Parking sucks. This is nothing new other reviewers noted this, so I'm just reiterating at this point. 5. Death stairs. Also noted by fellow reviewers, the stairs to get into this home are very steep and very uneven in both size and spacing. The stairs inside the home are also strangely positioned and uneven in spacing. Several of us almost fell a few times. Just something to note if you have limited mobility. We just started calling them death stairs as we were certain they have likely killed someone in the past. 6. Misc. Several outlets don't work. There are holes in the walls in several places. Poor lighting in rooms. No full-length mirror in whole house. Floors are very uneven, especially in the kitchen, and there's a strange tiny step up to get out of the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, we made the best of our stay there, and luckily had plans outside of the home every day we were there. The photos definitely make it look way nicer than it is. If you're cool with that, go for it. And, again, the property management folks were great to work with, the house wasn't. Show more Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways October 2021 We appreciate this review and feedback, Jen. We apologize for the issues you experienced and have taken steps to remedy them. The couch, chairs and bed frames at issue have been replaced, and the upholstery on the others has been effectively cleaned. The drywall damage has been repaired. We also apologize for any issues with cleanliness. The house has been extremely busy for many months, but we have had it deep cleaned since your stay in October. The stairs are indeed an adventure, as is the parking, which is why they are both called out in the listing (no less than 6 photos of those stairs!), as well mentioned repeatedly in reviews. We definitely don't want folks to come in unaware! As many reviewers have also pointed out, Woodside is a modest home, priced accordingly, making it a good value for a group who wants to be close to the action. That said, we are very sorry it did not work out well for your group, and, at the same time, we do hope you were able to enjoy other aspects of your stay in our beautiful area! -Rachel Show more Lynley Lynley October 2021 Great place!! The host is so communicative and helpful. It’s located in a spot that feels secluded and cabin-like but still very close to some restaurants and shops. Jud Jud October 2021 This property worked great for our group of friends to explore the Russian river area. The listing was accurate, and included helpful information through the entirety of the process. The outdoor hot tub nestled in the trees was magical and a great highlight! Would stay here again. Evan Evan October 2021 Overall this place is worth the cost. There are 4 bedrooms, 1 futon, and 1 pullout couch. I think I counted and you could easily sleep 14 people here (I think they have a limit of 8). There is a full large kitchen with gas stove and dishwasher. 2 full bathrooms. 2 very nice decks (one with a hot tub). The only draw backs were: parking is super tight and on a very narrow road which is hard to turn around and there are some cosmetic issues including a hole in the ceiling above the main toilet that they covered with tape and plastic. I would definitely recommend this place for the cost. The proximity to the downtown area and space you get for the price is solid. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways October 2021 Thanks for the review and feedback, Evan. We are happy to hear you enjoyed Woodside. The drywall hole is being worked on as I write! -Rachel Emma Emma October 2021 We had an excellent stay here. The house was clean and looked exactly as expected. There was no service but WiFi worked well. Laura Laura September 2021 This was the perfect home base for 5 of us as we explored the area. We arrived and it was very, very clean. There were cool views and definitely plenty of amenities - the hot tub was a bonus!! As previous reviews have mentioned, there are lots of stairs to get to the house, and they are uneven, so if you have mobility concerns, this may not be the place for you. Would stay here again! Shahnaz Shahnaz September 2021 Very nice and clean house. The kitchen is great (needs more lighting). Some of the mattresses, plus the downstairs furniture need to be updated. Really enjoyed the hot tub. It was Nice to have the washer/dryer on premises….. Lots of stairs if you have people with mobility issues Deborah Deborah September 2021 Wonderful location, well cared for and comfortable home. We plan to visit again. Colby Colby September 2021 Cute house in a great location! Management company was quick to respond and attentive. Jenny Jenny August 2021 The house is in a great location close to town and a serene beach. It felt magical to live among the trees! Steve Steve August 2021 no review Nicholas Nicholas August 2021 What a charming space for our vacation in Guerneville!! We had more than enough room for the six of us to be comfortable and make this our home for our long weekend vacation. The hosts are communicative, organized, and helpful throughout the process and made our visit easy and worry-free. David David June 2021 Pros: Great location that is about one mile from Johnson’s Beach. Plenty of room for a larger party (we had 5 people in our party) and the place is pet also friendly. The grounds that the house sits on are beautiful and the hot tub is large and worked great. Cons: Place needs some love (beds and lighting could use an upgrade). Also, there was a hole in the ceiling of the bathroom that needed patching when we were there. We also had some issues related to parking (more in Summary). Summary: Woodside Eden is a good value, especially if you need a larger place and one that is pet friendly. Parking can be a problem, especially on busy weekends. We ran into a problem with someone taking one of our two parking spots for two days of our stay. Since there is little unattached parking on the one lane road (with no shoulder) that the house is situated on, this was a problem for us. Julianne Julianne June 2021 Great house that can sleep a big crew. Stays cool on even the hottest days. We loved being able to walk to the river beach just across the road. Unfortunately, the highway noise is always present while sitting outside on the pretty decks. Drew Drew June 2021 A lovely home perfect for our Russian River weekend getaway from the city. Location was great, so close to town and the river. Spacious indoors and out. Very clean and comfortable. We had a great time! Vicki Vicki June 2021 This roomy place in Guerneville is very much as in the description. Comfortable for 8 or more. Redwood surrounding, comfortable beds and nice kitchen. Highly recommend. Tracy Tracy May 2021 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Great location on a quiet street; short drive to grocery store and downtown; walking distance to a quiet river beach; plenty of comfy beds, two nice decks with firepit, grill and jacuzzi. Property is clean and well maintained. There is limited parking and steep stairs, both of which are clearly outlined in the property description. Would definitely stay here again. Kevin & Sarah Kevin & Sarah May 2021 Great place and very clean. Plenty of space to relax. 20ish minute drive to coast, Healdsburg, and other cute small towns. Close to market. Outdoor patio was great. Noah Noah May 2021 Such a great spot. Plenty of outdoor space for 8 people. Incredible location to the river and town too. Jd Jd May 2021 Great for a getaway weekend, but plan plenty of outdoor adventures. This house isn’t on the waterfront, parking and turning around are difficult with a large vehicle, and the hot tub is directly visible from the main road and house gate. Good value for a large group if you’re ok with a hostel feel. Emily Emily April 2021 such a great place to get away from the city. the house was beautiful and in such a great place. I loved waking up to the redwood trees in the morning such a quiet place. I would definitely love to stay again Hennessy Hennessy April 2021 Loved it! Decor isnt my taste but the hot tub and second deck + being right in the middle of nature make up for it! Kaitlin Kaitlin April 2021 This is a lovely home that is honestly better in person than it looks in the pictures. The common spaces are large and spacious in a way that the photos don't properly convey. We held a yoga retreat here and especially adored the giant windows in the living room, looking out into the trees. Fabulous amenities, with a gas grill, fire pit, AND hot tub, which we made generous use of. The bedrooms have odd layouts but it worked great for our group. The house has clearly been used and loved for a while and some parts are older or more worn out, but for the price, proximity to the river, amenities, and overall space, it's a great deal and a wonderful spot. Highly recommend for groups looking for a quiet retreat and a good deal. Jackie Jackie March 2021 Great place to stay, close to the town and walkable river access! BenandTammie BenandTammie March 2021 Great place with plenty of space. Parking is tight and only room for two vehicles which is what we had so it was fine for us. Anna Anna February 2021 We had a great stay here! The place was even better than pictured, and much bigger too. It was really nice having the two decks! The hot tub was perfect ! It was right up against the highway, but you really can’t hear it when you’re in the house. The WiFi was better than expected too, it’s a great place to work from home. I would definitely stay again. Katie Katie February 2021 Overall we enjoyed our stay, but there were some things that may deter a future overnight visit to Guerneville. The house was larger overall, but not super accommodating for more than 4-5 people in the living areas other than the kitchen. Some of the beds weren’t very comfortable and the pillows were very firm and caused some neck discomfort. The patios were great mountain ambience and the spa is perfectly placed. Honestly the spa was my favorite part of our 5 person stay. The bbq was convenient for making dinner and the kitchen had most of the things we needed other than ventilation for making bacon. The people in town weren’t super friendly, but we had a great dinner at the bistro which is 2 minutes from the house. Be aware that parking is very limited and a little sketchy with 2 cars on a shoulder. Stairs down to the door are dangerous and you should pay close attention. Kacy Kacy December 2020 I stayed here for a girls trip and it was amazing! The hot tub and the deck are exactly what you want for a little getaway. Warning that we did get lost on the way to the home and it is a little hard to find. Additionally, the stairs down to the home are very steep and uneven. This was not a problem for my group, but might be for others, so just something to keep in mind! Kellie Kellie November 2020 If you want a wooded getaway in a nice quiet town in the woods its a nice place. Met our adult children for Thanksgiving. Had most of what we needed to make a great dinner. Plenty of room. The place is a bit tired and in need of some deep cleaning and maintenance. Furniture is stained and pretty uncomfortable for sitting for a long time. Bed comfy if alone but my husband who is heavier made it so I rolled to the center and bed was not comfy. Good news is there are plenty of beds. More than enough towels. However they are brown which means they do not get bleached which is what most places that offer lodging do. If you close the bedroom doors at night you need to use space heaters. Best part was the outdoor deck and spa. Street is noisy but it's quiet at night. Wifi is excellent. Katie Katie November 2020 Wonderful stay, the hosts made it a great stay for us! Clean place, great instructions for everything (parking, hot tub, etc). We brought our own coffee, but assumed the Airbnb would have coffee filters (unfortunately not). But, luckily there is a close-by coffee shop in walking distance! Easy checkin and checkout. Great deck area. We had some rain and it would have been nice to have a table cloth or umbrella to put over the big table. Overall, great experience! Sylvia Sylvia November 2020 This Airbnb was only OK. As other reviewers mentioned, the stairs inside/outside make this unfit for children and older adults. The highway noise is loud, but not a problem in the evenings. Quiet hours are strictly enforced - neighbors called property management prior to 10 PM to “remind us” that we need to take our activities inside. Redeeming qualities are that WiFi was excellent for work from home and hot tub was great! Susan Susan October 2020 Great place for a group of friends or family. Close to town. Close to coast. Lovely house. Wonderfully comfortable bed that I slept on in main bedroom. Marc Marc October 2020 Good value. Clean bathrooms and comfy beds. Fit our party size well. Ginn Ginn October 2020 Great house, nice forest location. The hot tub was great to have. Lots of bedrooms which was nice. Wi-Fi worked well enough for our sons zoom classes and my work calls. Definitely recommend this spot! Hudson Hudson October 2020 My friends and I were scrambling to find a location for our annual get together - wildfires, a heatwave, COVID made it very difficult, and we didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg. I was happy to find this spot - plenty of space for 5 people, very close to the river, set in some redwood trees. It was an easy and beautiful drive to the ocean, where we spent a day at the beach. It’s 1 minute in the car from downtown Guerneville where we got supplies and had dinner (on a patio with masked servers) and a 10 minute walk from the front door to a great beach access point to the Russian river. The house had good AC, great patio, a highly functional kitchen, and enough space in common areas. Downside - The quality of the furniture was a little low, the couches and chairs weren’t super comfortable to hang out on, and the decor isn’t anything to write home about. The best hiking nearby, at Armstrong forest, is closed due to wildfires. And like every year the river is very low this time of year so we weren’t able to do a float. All in all though, it was exactly what we needed as a basecamp for some great days out on the beach and the river. We had a great time. Show more Nicole Nicole September 2020 N/A Olivia Olivia September 2020 Pros - we rent in this area a lot and the River Getaway folks are always friendly and responsive. The house has a nice tree house feel and even though there are lots of houses tucked near by, it still feels private. The hot tub is lovely and the kitchen is quite nice. Even though the property is a bit noisy from the hwy below, inside the house is really quiet, nice double paned windows. Walking through the house and seeing giant trees out every window is really special. Cons - no surprises here, all of this was called out in the listing or other reviews but it’s not a super quiet location, it’s right above HWY 116 which has constant traffic. It’s not stop and go or honking but it is loud. The house is on many different levels, to get to the front door or the hot tub, there is a steep set of stairs. To get to the kitchen there is a steep set of stairs, etc... it’s no problem if you don’t mind stairs but if you have mobility issues or a toddler this place likely isn’t for you. Also the house could use a little love in places. Overall a great space, we spent one day at the Monte rio beach and another at the Sonoma State beach. Neither was crowded, both were beautiful. We love this area and would happily rent this house again. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways September 2020 We super appreciate the review and feedback, Olivia. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed Woodside Eden and hope you will be back. -Rachel Katherine Katherine September 2020 Great location and quick access to the beach. Perfect get-away for the family! Isaiah Isaiah September 2020 Expect to feel at home Kerri Kerri September 2020 The house is conveniently located close to town and the river. We enjoyed the two living spaces, the spacious kitchen, multiple decks, and the greatest surprise, the convenient access to the river across from River Road. We spent most of our weekend on the river and we couldn't have dreamed of a better location. Patrick Patrick August 2020 Comfortable, spacious, and relaxing home with ample outdoor space to unwind amongst gorgeous and marvelous redwoods. What more does one need? Jesse Jesse August 2020 The place is good for a larger group who are going to spend most of their time on the river or else where. Take note of what the description describes about the stairs. They are a bit steep and awkward. The noise from the highway was an issue, so just be aware. It was great at night when traffic was light. The place was clean, however I’m not sure I would use “updated” in the description. Everything was in working order and usable, however a little TLC would not go amiss. Beds were clean and comfy for cabin style living. Kitchen was utilized, but we did no cooking so can’t speak about the stove. Microwave worked great and had a nice big fridge. We spent most all of our social time out on the kitchen deck. The house is in the redwoods so expect to do a little cleaning outside each day. This a cabin on the side of a hill so don’t come expecting the Four Seasons and you won’t be disappointed. Hillside cabins most always have an awkward layout, so if this is your first cabin rental, this place is pretty standard rental fare. Check in was excellent. You get your code on booking and it worked flawlessly. Do heed the warnings about arriving in daylight. The area has no street lighting and the house has flood lights at the entrance for the for mentioned stairs. Also heed the warning on parking - Two cars only. You will also need to drive further up the road to the “turn around” corner to head down the hill when leaving. DuBrava beach is an easy walk, however town is a bit of a hike on a busy road. Bring something reflective if you plan to walk into town at night. Show more David David June 2020 Great spot for our group. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and had plenty of space. Very comfortable. Cameron Cameron March 2020 Great spot and very relaxing right before settling into the end of the world. Shaun Shaun January 2020 Woodside Eden is in a great location, about a 15 minute walk to downtown. The layout of the home is a little odd, you walk in the upper level but the kitchen and main sitting area are downstairs. The stairs leading down to the home from the street are steep and a few of the stairs were broken/wobbly. The outside patio area and hot tub were fantastic! The home was clean and well stocked with kitchen utensils/etc. Overall we had a great time! Shoshanna Shoshanna January 2020 Second time staying here, it is great! Perfect for groups looking to have a peaceful time. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways January 2020 We are so glad you gave Woodside Eden another go and had a good time. We totally appreciate the review and feedback, Shoshanna, and hope you'll be back again soon! - Rachel Alice Alice December 2019 This was a great spot for our family (parents and adult children with significant others) over the holidays. It was small enough to feel cozy, but had enough bedrooms for everyone to have their own space. We adored the hot tub, and it was close enough to everything we wanted to be near in Guerneville! Jeannette Jeannette December 2019 This cabin is nestled in a beautiful location - the view of hills and trees is lovely. The hot tub in the midst is a perfect spot to relax and the outside fire pit is a nice touch. The kitchen is fairly well appointed. The cabin can be a bit chilly but there are space heaters in every room which helped. While we were there the oven did not function properly, unfortunately - it seemed to run much colder than it’s listed temperature. The cabin layout does not really have a communal space large enough to comfortably accommodate more than 6 guests at once. It’s probably great for families with kids more than a large group of adults. Overall, we enjoyed our time there but would probably keep the number of adult guests to 6 or fewer in the future in order to feel most comfortable. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways December 2019 Thank you for the review and feedback, especially on the oven, Jeannette. We will definitely get that checked out. -Rachel Kristina Kristina October 2019 The host canceled this reservation 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting. Jennifer Jennifer September 2019 I would not recommend this place. It is weathered and not well cared for. The rental company does a fine job of communicating and being helpful, and there is a lot of space, but the place is dark, run down, and has an odd smell. Lots of things were broken or breaking and we spent as much time as possible out of the house. The layout is poor and even though there is a full kitchen, it really doesn't lend itself to cooking and eating meals there. The table on the deck wasn't cleaned, the beds were old, the chairs in the lounging areas were so old they were hard and the couch was terribly old too. In terms of logistics, even though it has a ton of beds, the beds are old, uncomfortable with old linens, and there is very limited parking. The dining room table only has three actual chairs, with folding chairs up against the wall if you have more people. The place needs some love and upgrades. We left a full day early and would definitely not stay here again. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways September 2019 We greatly appreciate your feedback, Jennifer. As you can see from other reviews, most folks enjoy Woodside Eden, and we hope you too found a few enjoyable moments. It sounds as though the house was really just not a good match for you, although some of your main observations are called out in the listing description & photos, such as the parking and dining arrangements, but we will definitely look into the other items you mention and correct as needed. -Rachel Show more Christopher Christopher August 2019 Great spot! Vladimir Vladimir August 2019 Large and comfortable, with a really nice deck and hot tub. Great for a long weekend in Guerneville! Definitely easy walk to town, as advertised. Fast internet. Delicious restaurant (Garden Grill) 2 minutes away. TV is very dated and doesn't fit the space, but you won't want to watch TV anyway. The mattresses in most of the bedrooms are very old and very uncomfortable. (Really soft bouncy springs!) Hopefully they can resolve that, but it didn't ruin the stay. Julia Julia July 2019 Loved the home for our group of 7. Great location and the hot tub was awesome! Jennifer Jennifer July 2019 Nice house but very mobile limited if you have young children or elderly adults. There are tons of stairs and many uneven to get to different areas around outside areas of the house. The decks are split in two levels and not one big deck as it appears in the pictures. It is right above hwy 116, so tons of road noise during 9-5 hours. Cleanliness was a issue. My 2 year old had black socks just from walking around the inside of the house and kept finding globs of dusk/gunk in corners and underneath the daybed when trundle was pulled out. The upstairs bath tub didn't drain very well and the house is on a slant that created a vertigo feeling for everyone in our party. Otherwise, it was in a nice treed area that was relaxing. I would give the stay a 3 star. Ken Ken July 2019 Great location close to Guerneville! Cathy Cathy June 2019 Pros: the communication was efficient and quick. The unit is as described and clean. There was more than enough space and sleeping arrangements for our group of 5. It was wonderful having 2 bathrooms. The kitchen was spacious and they provided folding chairs to accommodate the whole group at the dining table. Adequate supplies of toilet paper, paper towels, and bath towels were provided. The water pressure is very strong and no problems with the hot water running out. Cons: the unit is difficult to find in the dark. The check in instructions does recommend that you arrive during daylight hours, but our travel arrangements didn’t allow for that. The road leading to the unit is narrow and unlit, making it difficult to turn around. The stairs leading down to the unit is steep and uneven, making it tricky to carry our suitcases down. Probably not the best choice for individuals with mobility or stability challenges. We didn’t find much to do in the town. Most places close by 5:00 pm, which made our dining choices limited. Because the road leading to town and the beach is narrow, steep, and uneven, we didn’t find it walkable. Overall, it was a lovely home that we enjoyed staying in. Our main struggle was traversing the steep and uneven stairs each time we left and returned to the unit. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways June 2019 We do appreciate the review and feedback, Cathy. Your experience with the stairs at Woodside Eden is exactly why we include two photos of them on our listing; we want folks to understand the house well before booking. We are sorry that this impacted your stay, however, and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the house itself. -Rachel Amanda Amanda June 2019 Super convenient location just across 116 from a small, calm public beach - great for kids. Lots of beds for a family get together, quiet neighborhood, and nice hot tub. Beds and facilities could use some updating and cleaning, but it is totally functional and is quite affordable compared to other area rentals that host the same capacity. Common spaces are not huge for multi-family gatherings, but the deck worked well enough for this. Management company is very responsive though different people cover the account and don't always have the same information (I asked ahead of time about beach access and one person very helpfully replied w details, but when I followed up when we were there the person "on call" had no idea what I was talking about and couldn't give me directions). Kitchen has no food storage options (no tupperware, foil, bags, etc) so come prepared, though the management co was nice enough to send over foil and extra towels when I complained. The weekend was overall lovely; the beach across the street was the highlight. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways June 2019 Thanks for the review and feedback, Amanda. We're glad you enjoyed Woodside Eden. -Rachel Emily Emily May 2019 Had a great stay. This was a good home for our group, and was just as described. Close to town and in a nice and quiet setting. Would recommend for people coming to the area. Dusty Dusty May 2019 Great house close to downtown Guerneville, wine country, and beautiful beaches. The hot tub under the redwoods was the highlight. The house was clean, comfy, and felt like we were staying in a treehouse. Lots of beds and plenty of room for our party of 6 adults, 2 littles, and 1 dog. The property management was so helpful and quick to respond. At one point the coffee pot quit working and we had a replacement delivered to our door as soon as I called them. We couldn’t have asked for a quicker or kinder response. The neighborhood description on the listing is accurate. The tip to arrive during daylight is a good one, as is the advisement that there is limited parking space. Chris Chris May 2019 Awesome stay! Tai Tai April 2019 Very kid friendly and a responsive management company, but not walkable and alongside a busy highway. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways April 2019 Thanks for the review and feedback, Tai. We appreciate the kudos for our team and hope you enjoyed your stay. This is a rural area, and there are mostly no sidewalks, although, at least on 116, there is some shoulder. We do note this in the listing so that folks are prepared. Also, most homes in this area are either on or close to a highway, which, is it worth noting, although 116 can be busier than some of the other connecting roads, is still a two lane road connecting a string of small towns on its way out to the coast. We can't say it better than the "neighborhood" information on our listing: "The Russian River is a vacation destination year round, and most homes are built on roads running parallel to the River or Creek with mountains close on both sides, so there are varying degrees of noise from the roads, the River, residents and other visitors...If you have any questions about the general access to or neighborhood surrounding this home, please contact us." I hope this helps if you decide to come up our way again. You might like a home further out, if you want less resort town hustle and bustle, since close to town and away from it all don't often go together around here. -Rachel Show more Esa Esa April 2019 We had a great time! Priya Priya February 2019 Our group of 5 adults and 2 toddlers had a wonderful three night stay. Pre check in instructions were very helpful and check in was very easy. The hosts provided a pack n play and high chair which made our travel much lighter! The layout of the house was perfect, with three good sized bedrooms upstairs and a great room downstairs with a bunk bed. The kitchen and lounge were great for lazy breakfasts and long dinners. But the best part was the hot tub in the trees, under the stars. A perfect way to end the day. Easy drive into Guerneville. Would definitely stay here again. Tory Tory January 2019 This home was perfect for our group of eight. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably, hot tub under the trees was delightful and proximity to town very convenient! The parking situation was a bit confusing but didn’t give us any problems. Patrick Patrick January 2019 If you are looking for a quiet, rustic cabin in the woods to relax and unwind, this is the place for you. We stayed there with six adults and one child and there was plenty of space for all of us. It's located just a mile or so away from downtown Guernville, so one can get there easily with a short drive or a 20 minute walk or so. The cabin is situated not too far from a main road, so there is some road noise. However, with the windows closed you don't hear much of anything at all. I imagine this may be more of an issue in the summer if you are looking for total quiet and forest sounds. The hot tub is great, and there are two large decks to hang out on. Bradley Bradley December 2018 Had a wonderful time at this property for my birthday. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Guerneville! Shoshanna Shoshanna November 2018 What a lovely home! I brought 7 of my friends to the house to celebrate my birthday and it was perfect! We each had our own bed and really enjoyed the space. The parking is tricky, but we were able to fit 3 small cars on the spot without a problem. As mentioned from the host, arriving at night is hard (which is tough to avoid as the days get shorter). The hot tub is fantastic (though note ppl walking on the street can see down into the yard). Super cozy and would highly recommend for ppl looking for a quiet weekend trip. Ben Ben November 2018 Great spot for a family sized getaway. Very close to Downtown Guerneville. Lots of great trips to wineries, river beaches, cafe aquatica over in Jenner, Armstrong redwood forest. The decks on this house are very impressive, I think a bbq is the only way to do it justice. The fire pit is a nice touch but we didn’t get to use it out of respect for the high wild fire warning. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways November 2018 Thank for you for being cautious and great guests at this home Ben! We are so happy to hear you were able to enjoy all these wonderful places while visiting! Hope you come visit again! ~Maile Charly Charly October 2018 Great place to stay. I had a wonderful time. Had to cross a busy road to get to the river but it was a very short walk! The noise or dance is no joke... even when we turned OFF the jets on the hot tub and were whispering people still complained. Basically you can’t be outside at all after 10... otherwise FANTASTIC stay. Thank you River Getaway. Mary Mary October 2018 Great fall vacation. Peter Peter October 2018 Great house, lots of space in a beautiful area, highly recommend. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways October 2018 We are so glad you enjoyed your time! ~Maile Merrill Merrill September 2018 Great property. Will look to stay here again. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways September 2018 We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time here and look forward to our return! ~Maile Jennifer Jennifer September 2018 Nice and quiet getaway. Very homey and great location to town. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways September 2018 We are so happy you had a nice getway Jennifer! ~Maile Darren Darren August 2018 My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Woodside Eden. Very spacious, clean and cozy. We loved the backyard deck with the hot tub and BBQ surrounded by all of the redwoods. I’d recommend this space to everyone and would definitely come back again! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways August 2018 We are so happy you and your friends had a wonderful time and this house was what you hoped for! We do hope you come back to visit again Darren. Thanks for being a wonderful guests! ~Maile Stacy Stacy August 2018 As advertised, there are a lot of stairs. Pretty setting and very close to river access. Close enough to walk into town. Clean pretty house. My family of 7 slept comfortably and never felt crowded. Loved the fire pit, hot tub and two separate decks. Great vacation spot. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways August 2018 Thanks for your wonderful review Stacy! It sounds like you had a great stay here and we hope you come back for another visit! ~Maile Andrea Andrea August 2018 Great place for families, kids, and dogs! Perfect spot for river weekend. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways August 2018 We are happy to hear you enjoyed your getaway Andrea! Thank you for your feedback! We hope you are able to come visit the Russian River again! ~Maile Michelle Michelle August 2018 A nice big house with room for lots of people. Nothing fancy here, but suits a casual/family group. A short drive to town and area highlights, but lots of stairs to get to the house and within the house as well. We enjoyed our stay and our time in Guerneville. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways August 2018 We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit and appreciate you being such great guests! Thank you for your feedback Michelle and we hope you are able to come back and visit the Russian River area again! !~Maile John John July 2018 This place is in a beautiful location with red woods surrounding the place. The house was very clean. It was easy to get into. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways July 2018 So great to hear you enjoyed your time John! Please come visit again! ~Maile Katie Katie July 2018 Nice place for our group of three families including three kids. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways July 2018 We are so happy you enjoyed this home and hope to have you come visit again! ~Maile Jess Jess May 2018 Great house, exactly as pictured! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways May 2018 We are happy you liked Woodside Eden Jess! Thank you for coming and we hope you are able to return sometime! -Maile Chris Chris April 2018 Great place to get away from the city- quite, plenty of room, lovely outdoor decks, and short drive into town. Place is clean. Steep stairs. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways April 2018 Thanks for the review and feedback, Chris. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Woodside Eden! -Rachel Karly Karly April 2018 Overall great experience. The house’s layout is a little awkward but it had all of the basic amenities in a great location. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways April 2018 We're glad you enjoyed Woodside Eden, Karly! Thanks for the review. -Rachel Laurel Laurel April 2018 We had a wonderful time at Woodside Eden! Everything was clean and sooo accommodating for children! We loved the little table and chairs that the little ones were able to sit at and they LOVED the bunk bed room! We were able to enjoy the deck and hot tub and also loved the fact that the house was big and fit our whole family! Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways April 2018 Thank you for the wonderful review and kind words, Laurel! We are super happy you and your family enjoyed Woodside Eden so much and hope you will be back! -Rachel Elena Elena April 2018 Lovely spot for an Easter weekend in wine country with friends and family! We enjoyed the deck and grilled both nights. Had a terrific day wine tasting up and down Dry Creek Road, just a 25 minute drive away. Definitely recommend for a fun group get together. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways April 2018 We are so glad you enjoyed your Easter weekend at Woodside Eden, Elena, and hope you'll be back! Thanks for the recommendation and feedback - super appreciated! -Rachel Erica Erica March 2018 Loved the house! It has such wonderful amenities with the hot tub and fire pit. We were able to have s’mores for dessert. This housed us for a girls weekend and there were enough beds for each of us to have our own (7 of us). We loved the space and enjoyed cooking together. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways March 2018 Thank you so much for this lovely review and feedback, Erica! We are very glad you enjoyed your stay at Woodside Eden and hope you'll be back soon! -Rachel Rebecca Rebecca January 2018 Beautiful setting. Some small issues that were not addressed left us slightly disappointed. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways January 2018 I apologize for not getting back to you, Rebecca. Your message mentioned twice that you were just letting us know about the situation, which led us to believe that it was a minor issue for you and you did not want to be disturbed. Please know that if you ask for help, we are happy to give it. We hope you enjoyed your stay at Woodside Eden. -Rachel Aaron Aaron January 2018 A nice place overall but some cleanliness issues in the kitchen and a couple bedrooms. Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways January 2018 Thanks for the review and feedback, Aaron...we'll review with the housekeeper and make cleaning issues are corrected. -Rachel Brenda Brenda January 2018 The house itself was as pictured, location was really great, and it was pretty much as described. I did remove one star for a few small reasons: 1) Despite having said that the house provides "essentials" on the listing, the house does not provide any soap or shampoo for the shower! This wasn't a huge deal, as we had to just run back out and make a separate trip to go pick some up, but make sure you bring some with you, in order to avoid an unnecessary trip back out late at night when trying to get ready for bed. 2) The garbage disposal stopped working while we were there. The response from the property management group was extremely quick, which I really appreciated, but then when the handyman came, told us he could not fix it, and then left without providing any next steps. I called the property management group again after the handyman left, to ask what could be done at that point, but received no return call to my voicemail for the remainder of our trip. We were left with a broken garbage disposal for the rest of the trip and had to manually keep an eye on the water level and scoop dirty water from the blocked side of the kitchen sink to the working side, every time we ran the dishwasher or got water in that side of the sink, in order to keep it from overflowing. We ended up hand-washing all our dishes. 3) Cleanliness left a bit to be desired-- all our socks turned black and dirty from the inside of the house, which is kind of gross. I am not sure the floor is cleaned between stays (though other than that, everything else was fairly clean). I would definitely leave my shoes on inside if I were to stay there again. Overall, though, despite the small issues we had, we had a pretty good stay and a really good trip. It's a beautiful location and a beautiful house! Show more Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways January 2018 Thanks for the review and feedback Brenda. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, despite the issues you experienced, for which we do sincerely apologize. -Rachel Jamie Jamie October 2017 The house is surrounded by beautiful trees and nature, but still close enough to town! I absolutely loved the decor and all the space. I would recommend this spot to big groups and families! And it was so so clean!!! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways October 2017 Thanks so much for the great review Jamie! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Woodside Eden and hope you will be back soon! Cindy Cindy September 2017 Great place to rent - very spacious and comfortable for all. Very convenient to town and other attractions. Lots of areas of the house for gatherings-would definitely rent again! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways September 2017 We're so glad you enjoyed Woodside Eden, Cindy, and hope you will come back soon! Thanks for the review! Anne Anne August 2017 The house was just as expected: clean, plenty of beds with good bedding, fully equipped kitchen, great deck with BBQ and fire place, and close to the river. It housed 10 of my family members comfortably, with beds to spare. I wouldn't hesitate staying here again! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways August 2017 And we would not hesitate to welcome you back, Anne! Thanks so much for the great review. We're glad the house worked out so well for you. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways Joanna Joanna July 2017 We enjoyed looking up into the trees from the hot tub and the two common areas. We also had a nice fire on the patio. The location is good being in the trees, but you could hear the road noise from highway 116. Joanna Joanna June 2017 Lovely house, good location near Guerneville Chanin Chanin May 2017 The location of the house is terrific and very convenient to get to downtown. Can sleep a large group very comfortably, but parking can be a little challenging if you have a lot of cars coming in. Otherwise, this is a terrific spot. Claire Claire December 2016 River Getaways was perfect for what we needed! My family and I were six adults and two young children, and the house was perfect! The deck was beautiful, wonderful for after a long day of wine tasting and walking around in the redwoods, which were in walking distance. It was a great location for us - out of the busy Sonoma, but close enough to drive quickly for the day. Everything was easy and carefully laid out. Would definitely return and recommend! Eric Eric December 2016 Not the greatest parking if you have multiple cars with you, but we made it work and didn't have anyone upset the whole weekend. Very quiet and comfortable. Would stay again. Jessica Jessica November 2016 I had a great stay at Woodside Eden with a few friends. I really appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was with plenty of pots, pans, etc. The layout of the home was also really nice with the living area flowing into the basement. It was really close to town which made shopping easy. Close to Armstrong Redwood Forest where we enjoyed daytime hiking, and also close to the coast where we enjoyed the evening sunset. Upon arrival one of the two car spots was taken, but by morning the truck had moved. This made parking a bit difficult but I'm glad we only experienced that difficulty the first night. The beds in the home were also not very comfortable, the room I was in had an incredibly soft mattress which I found difficult to sleep on. The road is also loud and street noise kept me up, though my last night I was happy to find a fan in the closet that helped block out the noise. I found several spiders and cobwebs in the home but I suppose that is also expected with the "woodside." Overall I recommend this property, it was a great value and a great space to relax for the weekend, Jenny Jenny July 2016 Woodside Eden was very comfortable and clean and had all of the amenities we needed. Grace Grace May 2016 Great house - exactly as described! The home was cozy, clean, and a lot more spacious than we had anticipated. It is slightly hard to find when you're driving on the streets but, because of that, has great privacy. We would totally recommend this rental and would come back again! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways May 2016 So glad you enjoyed the house, Grace! We hope to welcome you back to the Russian River again! Tamir Tamir February 2021 The place is very nice and well equipped. The hot tub was great. The beds are not as comfortableas excepted. Over all we had a great time and would recommend it to anyone. Alex Alex November 2020 A great stay! Carmen Carmen August 2019 Great place! It felt very secluded. Lots of rooms so great for a group. Definitely would recommend staying here. Charlotte Charlotte April 2019 You pay for the many people who can live here, but other than that then the place is small and not as cosy as it looked at the pictures. It is close to the river, but on the other side of the big road which gives a lot of noise from the street when you sit outside. Sebastian Sebastian March 2018 Great location! Good for relaxing and hiking in near by red woods etc. Only thing you should be aware of is that you need to bring out door activities in after 10pm (including hot tub) due to the rules in the neighborhood. Still we had a great time in this wonderful "tree house". Lots of space, clean and comfortable. Enjoy! Russian River Getaways Response from Russian River Getaways March 2018 Thanks for the review, Sebastian. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Woodside Eden and hope you'll be back! -Rachel Mary Mary January 2022 Cute ambiance.
