Great Location but Cottage Needs New Floor Covering and Bonus Ro
Left on 01/19/2014 for a stay in December 2013 | bobtotal
My wife and I wanted to be in a Forest among beautiful trees and the Russian River area is gorgeous and filled that desire perfectly! The majestic Redwood trees are beautiful and awe inspiring! Armstrong Woods State Natural Preserve which is a very short drive from the cottage is a must see! Pay the entry fee and drive all the way to the end to Bullfrog Pond Campground for the full experience.
We were very disappointed with 'Emergency' contact service when our entry code didn't work. It took over half hour in the dark and a bit of an attitude from the guy on the phone to get a code that worked. The last thing I expected from an 'Emergency' phone number was a voicemail...and then a long wait. To be fair, all other service from Kayte at the office was polite, friendly and terrific.
Our favorite part of the Fairy Circle Cottage was the outdoor spa at the base of the trees. Looking up through the trees while relaxing in the warm bubbling water and staring up at the stars was fabulous! A+++! But, the underside of the spa cover had mold on it and smelled a bit of mold (that may be unavoidable due to the hot water combined with the cold outside temperatures, I don't know).
The cottage itself was acceptable but in our opinion it has issues that would keep us from coming back. First and foremost, it needs new floor covering! The floor covering is pretty badly stained in numerous spots/areas. I'm not sure what the floor covering is called but it reminded me somewhat of the underside mesh of a carpet. It looks and feels kind of like someone put a carpet in upside down!
The décor of the main part of the cottage does not have a 'cottage' feel at all in our opinion. Also, the artwork in the downstairs Bonus Room is not for kids! The prints of a bra and a jock strap on one wall and the poster of Chicago (the musical) complete with blood splatters and a garter belt and stocking clad model are 'R' rated at best.
Glad to hear! And you can always call the office if you have a question about the trash - or anything else!

We enjoyed the stay at the house, but comparatively, was a bit pricey for just a weekend. The house was nicely stocked, the yard was cute and I loved that we could bring our dogs, they had a ball exploring the hillside (so did our son). Slight concern for small dogs, as there are lots of escape holes around the yard that should be secured better. The brickwork in the yard could be dangerous as it drops off next to the house, kind of unsafe with my 3-year-old and my leg in a cast, but everything was fine. Otherwise the home is comfortable, hot tub was good (what I'm told since I couldn't enjoy it with a cast), kitchen was well stocked and the location is nice. (The bathroom could use a shelf to put toiletries on, next to the sink.) We'd use your rental company again! Thanks!

Enjoyed this very private cabin for the weekend. Very quiet house on a very quiet street. Cabin is cozy (small) but perfect size for the two of us. Cabin was very clean and well stocked. Only minutes away from the center of town, it was perfect for being in the heart of the River area. We will stay there again. Read more
Thank you for reviewing Fairy Circle Cottage! If the hill is problematic for folks, we have the phone numbers for a couple local taxis that are happy to take care of the uphill direction for you!

I was the unlucky one of our group that got the couch. Not comfortable. It's a very cute place with a great patio and a nice hot tub. Lots of steep outdoor steps, so not aDa friendly. The bedroom with the twin beds is not connected--it's underneath, but it's not a place that small children could sleep. Only complaint re cleanliness--the spider webs--they were everywhere. They have the most amazing trees on the property. Although I thought the price was high--we were there on a holiday weekend. The master bedroom is very nice. It would be a perfect place for a couple with a couple of teenagers. Read more
Thank you for reviewing Fairy Circle Cottage! And thank you for letting us know about the pull out sofa - you are the first to comment on the comfiness, so we'll let the owner know!
And we try to describe the house as best as possible on our website, but you are correct - the 2nd sleeping space is a lower unit with a full bathroom but it can only be accessed from an exterior door. We try to find out as much as possible about the groups coming to stay at the house so we can help them pick the best house for their group.
Were there spider webs in the house? Or were they outside? They certainly shouldn't have been inside! But outside it's hard to keep them back *all* the time. Under the redwood trees we just have more spiders and webs than other places... If it makes you feel better - most of them are harmless garden spiders that dine primarily on mosquitoes and other flying bugs.
Well, I hope we see you again!

Quiet week away

The cottage was comfortable and gave us the quiet break from a hectic schedule we needed. The deck area amongst the redwoods was a favorite spot to chill. Read more

Great property. Nothing like having a redwood to look up to while lolling in the hot tub. We used the whole house which was perfect for us and our adult daughter and partner since we all were able to have some privacy with the two apartments. The rooms were homey and had character. Our only problem was a glichy gas stove that turned on at crazy times but the management sent someone up quickly to deal with it. Good location to do winery tours from. Read more
Thank you for leaving a review for Fairy Circle Cottage! We're glad you had such a great time and were able to use both sections of the house! And thank you for letting us know about the stove issue right away so we could have it fixed! Feedback from guests keeps us in the know!

What a sweet little cottage. The hot tub beneath the tree circle is the best. My family had a wonderful vacation in Guerneville last Novemeber. We stayed at Fairy Circle and it was perfect for the four of us. Read more

The cabin was just what we needed for a New Year's getaway from the City. The Cottage is conveniently located close to town, yet retains its seclusion and coziness - best of both worlds. We cannot wait to come back! Thank you to the owners and stewards for welcoming us into your home! Our dog had a blast as well! Read more
Hello - and Thank You!
We love this house for special feeling of cozy, tucked in the redwoods, escape-ness...

Great place for couples

We loved our stay at Russian River. Fairy Circle Cottage is also a great house, but not for a family with young children. It's listed as one bedroom on the main floor with a separately accessed "bonus" room which is essentially a studio and the only access to this room is from the street. Because of this, we didn't use the room at all. The deck is awesome -- it's actually built around massive redwood trees. There's an 8 person hot tub that was also great. It was our fault for not reading the fine print, but knowing we had a young child, it would have been nice if the management company pointed out that the second room wouldn't be usable for us. Our son had to sleep on the pull-out couch which was a pain to deal with every day and not very comfortable. The house overall is comfortable, and very close to the river and beach. We ended up having a nice time.

We had a great time. The house was clean and all of the ammenities were there. We decided not to use the hot tub once we realized that we were in the middle of a neighborhood and our neighbors could watch us. The bathroom was quite small, but the rest of the house was very comfortable.
