Bird's Nest Cottage

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms


Relax among the redwoods at the Birds Nest Cottage. You'll be tucked along a hillside in the neighborhood of Rio Nido - surrounded by natural landscaping, wildlife (including birds) and the majestic redwoods, striking the perfect balance of sun and shade

Birds Nest Cottage is an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the stars in the private hot tub under the towering Redwoods. Or curl up with a good book near the woodstove and enjoy a glass of local pinot noir or bubbly - Korbel is just minutes down the road

Cathedral ceilings and windows throughout the living room and bedrooms invite the outside in for a true "in the redwoods" experience. The two bedrooms, two baths, and large family room with a queen size sofa bed are decorated with delightful mix of contemporary furnishings and antiques with a nod to the bird's nest theme. Each bedroom features ample closet space, multiple pillows, comforters and high grade linens

Modern comforts include high speed wifi, HD flat Screen TVs with full cable, DVD players and iPod/iPhone docking station. There are lots of books and games for kids and adults, on cozy evenings or rainy days. There's even a game table!

The kitchen is well-stocked with all the essentials (cookware, spices, olive oil, etc. ), to make cooking a feast fun and easy. The adjoining dining area seats up to six or you can dine alfresco on the patio and use the chef style Charbroil grill. Whatever your pleasure, this is the perfect retreat

The Russian River offers a year round retreat from the city hustle and bustle. The house is just steps away from community run pee wee mini golf (summer only), year round playground, dog run, tennis court, pool (at the Rio Nido Roadhouse - day or week passes available - summer only), and small beach. You're a short car or bike ride to downtown Guerneville and Johnson's Beach where you can rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and inner tubes. Or take a quick drive to the Pacific Ocean and Armstrong Woods
