Very pretty, quiet house with a gorgeous back yard and hot tub. The house itself was a little dark, but otherwise it was very nice. The master bedroom was great.
Perfect last minute getaway!

We loved our weekend getaway at Fern Woods. We booked it at the last minute and Russian River Getaways made the process absolutely seamless. The backyard is amazing. Sitting on the deck or in the hot tub staring up at the old redwoods was the perfect way to spend time away from the busy city. Our doggie daughter loved the backyard - so many things to smell! The master bedroom truly felt like a retreat and the bed was so comfy. The house is adorable and had everything we wanted or needed. Yummy restaurants are just a short drive away. All in all it was the perfect last minute getaway.
The people at Russian River Getaways are awesome. We often forget we can take a nice relaxing vacation so close to home, and after renting Fern Woods from them, we'll definitely be checking out more of their homes in the future (hopefully sooner than later).
The only thing we had trouble with was parking. We have a Chevy Tahoe and couldn't make it up the driveway. We spun out each time we tried, so we ended up having to go up the street, turn around, and come in the other way in 2nd gear. The good thing is there's a flat parking spot in front of the house just off the road. We came home late one night and didn't want to disturb any of the neighbors by trying to get up the driveway, so we fit our Tahoe into the small flat spot. Read more
Thanks for the review and all the compliments! Fern Wood is great, and we're so glad you enjoyed it. Please do come back soon! -Rachel
Great House, strange neighborhood
Left on 10/17/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | Javier
Fern Woods was just as described. All the amenities and accomodations were just as described in the ad without exception.
Everything is in good condition and if you have enough food with you, there is no need to go out whatsoever... It is also about 7 minutes into the mountain and 15 to Safeway.
Cozy house, awesome back deck with brand new BBQ grill and a Jacuzzi for four. The tree shade canopy makes it a bit cold, but it is beautiful. You have amazing 30 feet tall or more trees right in your backyard.
Two things I would had liked to know for my rental:
1. The neighborhood was very quiet, and it was also a little bit on the old and forgotten side. There are a bunch of old cars on the roadside growing weeds and some houses are not in good condition, a bit freaky for some people you could say. House 4.0/5.0 Neighborhood 2.0/5.0.
2. I called for a late check out on Saturday (just as it says in the website), and I was asked to call on Sunday at 10am because "someone could book the house over Saturday night".
When I called on Sunday they told me nobody had rented the house yet, but they had a cleaning person scheduled to come at 11am, so I had to leave at regular check out time, anyway... ?? I guess they could have told me I had to leave at 11am anyway. A bit dissappointing. Read more
Thanks the review. We're glad you enjoyed the house. The river area is very eclectic everywhere; most people who come here enjoy that aspect or at least take it in stride. As for the late check-out, this was an error of a new employee, and we apologize for it. Next time, point out what it says on the website and ask them to check with the manager, if they're still unsure. -Rachel
Great stay at Fern Woods

comfy house in the redwoods
Left on 09/10/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Flinda
Loved going to bed at night in the redwoods. It was quiet at night and neither of the houses on either side of use were occupied which we really enjoyed. We particularly loved the large Weber grill that we put to good use, as well as sitting on the back patio and looking at the stars. We also enjoyed the HBO that we don't have at home.
We had one problem in that the water was turned off one morning and we had no warning. We called the rental company and they were helpful. The water was off due to some road construction and came on again in 15 minutes. Read more
We're so glad you enjoyed Fern Woods, and we do hope you'll return. Thanks for the review. -Rachel

We stayed at FernWoods for a long 3 day weekend. There were two couples, two babies, and two dogs. Russian River Getaways was a great find for us because there were a number of houses in our price range that were wonderfully accomodating to our group. All the staff I spoke with were friendly and helpful. Their process is clear and they are very professional. The garbage disposal broke the first night and there was a handy man out the next morning. It was really easy to get issues solved.
The house was cute and cozy. We spent mornings there and then ventured out to explore Guerneville. We loved Hi5, the Market, and Garry Ferrell Vineyard.
We will definitely be back to Guerneville. We'd absolutely stay at Fernwoods again or maybe one of the other great Russian River Getaway houses.
simple and elegant-a perfect combination for Christmas

We are locals who like to travel close- our county is astoundingly beautiful. Guerneville is known to be funky and cold but this house really is a gem in the wilds of Guerneville! The anonymity of renting without seeing or talking to anyone was quite lovely! It felt very much like a secret getaway. The house is astoundingly beautiful, comfortably furnished and not too feminine like many rentals can appear. The hot tub looked like it had an awning over it but did not, so we didn't venture there. Next time! A few minor glitches but considering the area, we had a carefree Guerneville experience! One thing tho, the road in to the neighborhood feels 80 times longer than the directions indicate. Have faith, you will get there! Almost perfect, and we will be staying in this same house again. The customer service we received after our stay was exemplary (left an item behind, Julz sent it back at no charge) so it completed the experience of feeling "home" but not home...

Fern Woods is a quaint, comfortable house that was exactly what we were looking for. Although the kitchen is a little small, the downstairs living room is spacious and comfortable, and the master bedroom is large and inviting. It was easy to get to, but difficult to leave.
What a wonderful time

It was exactly what I hoped for when i booked this rental. The cabin had everything we needed and was maintained properly. The staff was very friendly and professional. I can't wait to vacation. Here again.

I just loved this house it was just what the doctor ordered. I got to relax in hot tub and catch up on some rest. The description of cabin doesn't give it justice, I had overlooked this location. I had a small issue with hot water on my first rental and got the best customer service ever; I was moved rather quickly to Fern Wood and was blown away by the house, it was huge and even though it wasn't as secluded as cabin on austin Creek which I loved as well, I felt very secluded. The neighbor was very nice as well gave me a jump as I left my lights on car. I highly recommend house to anyone who works a lot and needs to getaway. The master bedroom was awesome, I got to hideaway there when I felt like being alone and just rest. I want to thank Russina River getaways for going above and beyond, I been raving about service and experience. I can;t wait to get my next rental, hopefully other cabins are just as great as this location, thanks again! Read more
This is a great house, and we're so glad you had such a wonderful experience visiting. -general manager
Great House - Terrible Parking
Left on 10/06/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | Hoss49d
Really enjoyed the house. It was as described. But the parking was terrible. No way could two normal size cars park at the lower level. As stated, you needed a vehicle with a high clearance to parke in the driveway. Parking a Jag in the lower level alone was a job.
Just what the Doctor Ordered.

Perfect, quiet, calm just melted all our troubles away.
