Nestled into the vast coastal redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) along the protected Austin Creek, Dreamwood is a retreat unto itself! With two hammocks, an abundance of games and toys, room to spread out and one of the best swimming holes along the creek, families will love staying here year-round. Nature is the great entertainer, but the house also has wifi, a flatscreen smart TV, and Sonos stereo system. Or check out the new sauna - especially lovely after a swim in the creek.
The ground level of the house is fully remodeled - adding two bedrooms - one of which is perfect for the kids, a full bathroom, sauna, second W/D and mini kitchen. Step outside to enjoy the view overlooking the creek, and enjoy the hammocks and ample room to run around. Upstairs, the main deck offers a propane gill, plenty of seating for outdoor dining. The upper two levels remind us that this charming home started out as a rustic cabin, much loved by its family. It is a place for memory making.
Know Before You Book:
Damage Waiver: The non-refundable damage waiver included in the reservation charges replaces a standard security deposit. The damage waiver covers unintentional damages to real or personal property of the rental unit that occur during your stay. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3000.00. Any damages that exceed $3,000.00 will be charged to the guest directly. The damage waiver plan does not cover replacement of missing items, additional housekeeping charges, intentional damage or gross negligence, or damages resulting from a violation of the rules outlined in the Russian River Vacation Homes guest agreement. To ensure that you are not charged for any damages, you are responsible for reporting any accidental damages to Russian River Vacation Homes in a timely manner.
*PLEASE NOTE* HomeAway offers a damage protection fee during the online check-out process. This is different than the waiver that we offer and costs more for less coverage. DO NOT select the damage insurance offered at checkout.
