Clean and comfortable. Never felt cramped with 5 people. Upstairs hot tub is amazing. Kitchen very well stocked. Everything worked well.
Relaxing place on the river with beautiful views!

This is a great house for a couple, two couples or a family of four to five. It has a lot of stairs so its not for anyone who does not climb stairs. But it is worth the climb as you have a beautiful view right on the Russian River. We went in July so the dock was on the river and the house includes two kayaks and floaties to use on the river. The dumbwaiter is extremely useful to help transfer up and down luggage and groceries. The only negative was that the hot tub motor would run for about an hour in the middle of the night and you can hear it in both bedrooms. Woke me up a few times. Before I rent again, I would want that taken care of so it only runs during the day. But up top besides the hot tub is a sauna as well and a great deck for eating and sunning. Very private. Will definately be back! Read more
Thank you for sharing your experience at Bird Cage with us, and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. We'll check in with owner about the hot tub motor to see what can be done about that. Thanks for letting us know. We look forward to your return to the River and hope you'll be staying with us again. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
A Great Escape
Left on 03/15/2013 for a stay in February 2013 | Keith
We were very happy with this place. Despite being the off season this was still a great place to stay. We loved the hot tub on the roof. The kitchen has everything you could ask for. Beds are comfy and the location was ideal for travelling into wine country or to see some ancient Redwoods. Only complaint was the hot tub pump was very loud at night a perfect place for a romantic get away or for two couples.

Great location, clean modern house, kayaking on the river!

We had a great time. Birdcage was clean and comfortable. The dock and kayak's added just what we wanted. Two issues: though the name was birdcage, we were surprised at how many stairs there were to get in. Fine for us, but perhaps it would be worth mentioning for older couples or an older dog! Also the hot tub on the upper deck is a nice touch, but the pump or heater runs during the night making a potentially disturbing noise for light sleepers. That being said, we had a fantastic stay and will gladly return.

We had a wonderful time! The Birdcage was just perfect for 2 couples, nicely equipped and the location was awesome! We enjoyed the kayaks, the hotub and sauna and being on the river. The weather was perfect and lots of things to do around the area. It was a very nice vacation! Highly recommend this place! Read more

Everything was great about this place, but the master bed had a bunch of hair in the sheets. We had to sleep in the other room because of this. The rest of the house was clean and enjoyed the board games. Having the hot tub on the top deck was nice, we spent most of our time there. Read more
I'm glad you enjoyed the house so much. I'll check into the sheets; it's very odd as the sheets are washed and put back on the bed before each booking. Next time, please give us a call. We have extra sets of sheets that can be brought out and put on the bed for you. -Rachel, general manager

Place is great. One of the best houses we've stayed at in RR area. Incredible rooftop deck with fantastic sauna and hot tub. Great views. Immaculate condition. King bed is sooo comfortable. It is clear that the owners really care about the Birdcage and care about their guests' comfort. Read more
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay; please do come back soon and enjoy more Bird Cage. -Rachel, general manager

It is often difficult to really know what you are getting sometimes doing things over the internet. However, we were so excited to take our oldest daughter and her husband to wine country, that we took our chances. I called and was directed to the Birdcage as a good fit for our family. Once we arrived we were amazed, it was clean and well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and everything I needed to cook our meals. After long days in wine country it was nice to come back and relax in the hot tub and enjoy our wine. The Birdcage was the perfect spot for our family of four and our well behaved dog, Jake. What a pleasant surprise! Read more
And we're so happy that you had a great time at this wonderful home. Please do come back soon. -rkl

We had a wonderful time kayaking (should be on america's Funniest Videos), exploring the redwood forests, wine tasting, and shopping in downtown Grueneville. I loved the thrift store across the street from Russian River get aways and the taco truck in the Safeway parking lot. We felt very much at home at the Birdcage and appreciate how well it has been taken care of! Thank you, Bev and Rich Ryan, Dallas, Texas P.S. It's still in the triple digits here!

The birdcage has excellent views, directly on the river and about a 15 minute walk to town. The hottub and sauna are very private on the roof deck. I definitely like the view the best and would rent this property again if they refilled the hot tub between guests. Read more
While we sometimes do re-fill the hot tub between guests, either because it's routine for scheduled maintenance or a guest has overused and upset the balance of the tub, mostly this is not necessary. Our hot tubs are maintained weekly, and this is fine, according to hot tub professionals. -rkl
Small Family from SF
Very fun getaway
Left on 05/20/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Small Family from SF
We chose Birdcage because of its location right on the water, the rooftop deck, and the hot tub. We had a great time--the house is very comfortable, the rooftop porch is beautiful, it's great to sit in the hot tub and watch the river roll by.
If you are interested in boating, etc on the river, please not the details about seasonal use of the dock and the boats; as of May 1st the floating dock was not out and the boats were not available for use. You can still find boating on the river, but won't have the benefit of the private dock or kayaks...so keep this in mind when booking/choosing a date.
We went with another couple with children and split two ways this was a good value.

Close to perfect

The location and amenities are really great, we loved the hot tub and sauna as well as the fireplace. Having the view of the river so immediate is awesome. The sauna is a little tricky to operate and could use directions on arrival. the main tv was also confusing in terms of switching between dvd and ty reception. Also the nice stereo system with all the groovy speaker placement could use an ipod dock or at least some cd's to play in the cd player.
peaceful and serene.

only unpleasant thing was the sauna was not operating. and was not able to be repaired.

This was our second time renting Birdcage. We all loved
the improvements made by the new owners. You can definitely tell they take a lot of pride in their ownership.
The weather was cooler than normal for august but that
didn't bother us. We were able to enjoy the Spa more.
The views from both decks are so beautiful. They relax you
and give you this peaceful serenitity. We can really slow our lives down here and get some much needed rest. The beds are comfortable. Even though the road is near, there is very little sound from it. We took several day trips. We visited Healdsburg and armstrong Redwoods. Just a short
drive from Birdcage. We just had so much fun during this
vacation, that we are already planning for next summer. We are hoping for a longer stay this time. Somehow, one week just didn't seem long enough. We just didn't want to leave. Thank you for sharing your lovely place with us. We will always cherish these vacation memories.

Enjoyed the Birdhouse stay. The kitchen had great appliances, the house had good space, and the bedding was very nice. The one bedroom did have a bed that sloped a bit. The view from the top deck was magnificent, and the hot tub was perfect. I wish we could have spent more time at the house instead of doing the winery trips.

My two women friends and I were sent to the Birdcage after our original rental did not work out. What a wonderful surprise! The house is beautiful, with a river view,hot tub on the rooftop deck and very well equipped (even spices in the kitchen cupboards). Very comfortable beds and living room furniture. Good location in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by tall redwoods, right on the river (with private stairs down to the water) yet close to Guerneville shops and restaurants. The staff at Russian River Getaways was very helpful and accommodating whenever we had a problem (we accidentally left a bag of groceries and they even delivered it to us!)
We would definitely book with them again and would love to stay at the Birdcage again.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Birdcage.The house was way more

did however have something die in the wall that permeated through the air
over the weekend!!! Can you say PEEEEEYYYEEEWWWWW!!!! Other than that a
great time was had by all!!!

Loved the river
Left on 08/26/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | The fun family
We stayed at Birdcage for 3 nights.
The first night took some adjusting to get used to the hot tub heater turning on throughout the night.
The next day we enjoyed the dock from dawn until dusk.
Our family attempted the puzzle, very challenging but fun.
We did get locked out by not bringing the keyless entry code with us down to the dock.
I will say that birdcage is a vacation rental with workout potential! Between all of the stairs and kayaking I was able to work off some of the wine I drank while there!
Overall we had a great time!

Everything about staying here was great. The reservation was smooth and
easy. All of our questions were answered promptly by email. The keyless
entry worked perfectly. The house was stocked with everything we needed to
enjoy a week on the river: dishes, serving dishes, cooking utensils, pots pans,
BBQ, washer/dryer... everything but the food.
This house is sooo great. The deck on the roof with river views is pretty much
amazing. The private dock with kayaks made going out for a row every
morning so fun. Relaxing and swimming out there in the afternoon was great
Its less than a 10 minute bike ride into town from here so its a great place to
bring bikes and also have secure storage under the house for them. I highly
recommend brining bikes along.

Unbeatable location and great house layout makes for the perfect weekend getaway. We must have spent 5 hours a day on the rooftop hot tub looking out over the river. The house is close to everything, has a beautiful open kitchen, and is perfect for two couples or a family.

This is a nice little home on the outskirts of Guerneville. The house is simple and has been problem free both times we have stayed here. We particularly love the private deck overlooking the river with the hot tub and sauna. We will stay here again.
