What Past Guests Are Saying
Bay Area, CA
Off the beaten path, quiet, and just great
If you are looking for a quiet "cabin" this is the right place. Very quiet location on a "creek" (we came during the rainy season, so the "creek" was more "river" at that time). Small-ish sandy beach right in the back yard, 3 decks, well-kept interior with reasonably-well-appointed kitchen, good supply of games and books along with a few DVD movies, TV (didn't use it), and WiFi. The cabin is in the woods with about 20 or so other cabins tucked in along the road which is very quiet and a good place to walk. There is one neighbor, but it is very private nonetheless. Lots of areas around to explore, and a few places to access the "creek". There is a general store about 5 miles away, and a full grocery store in Guernville (10 miles or so). This is not a complaint, but be aware that there is no cell service - but there is WiFi and a house phone. If you are looking for a quiet getaway "in the woods" with your significant other and your dogs that isn't far from the bay area, this may be for you.
Slice of Heaven
Lovely cabin with a beautiful views of the river.
Weekend away from brats!!!
My husband and I spent 3 nights in total bliss. We hardly left, relaxed ate great food and had some fun. Everything we needed was there. The cottage is well equipped and clean.
The wife and I stayed Oct 26-28; Cloud 9 was more than what we expected. The attention to details was truly awesome, it felt like being at a upscale resort. We have stayed at other places in the area, but this was by far the best and we will return,but only to Cloud 9.

Beautiful Inside & Out
This property far exceeded our expectations! The photos, although beautiful, do not do justice to the spectacular views and all of the little thoughtful touches the owners put into this property. My husband and I will definitely return to this property next year and plan to stay longer!

Very relaxing weekend!
My boyfriend and I drove up here for our anniversary. We had a wonderful experience at Cloud 9! It was very well equipped with kitchenware, spices, and things to entertain us, as well as our dogs :) Our dogs had a fabulous time swimming in the creek, which was directly in the back of the house, so there was no need to take a far hike, which we had to do last year at another home. The only thing that I would complain about is that there were a couple of dirty dishes left in the oven, and for some reason the wifi would stop working after 10 pm on both nights, but that didn't make our experience any less worth it. Overall, this place was very clean!!! Thanks again for having us!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Cloud-9,
This is a romantic, a quiet and a lovely cabin. It has all of the required facilities, close to a beautiful creek and provided us a great experience.

So glad you enjoyed Cloud 9!
Cloud 9 = Wonderful
We went up there for a short weekend get away, and when Sunday came around, we wanted to stay so badly. I felt at home, comfortable, and we got a lot of rest in a short amount of time.
My dogs thought they had gone to heaven. I was very pleased to have my dogs experiencing the woods with us.
We will be back.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 12/22/2011
This is great to to hear, thanks. We try hard to provide a relaxing break for our guests, and we're glad that we succeeded for you and your dogs and that you're coming back. -rkl
San Francisco, CA
Beautiful, peaceful spot.
Had a delightful Labor Day weekend. The house was comfortable, with all amenities in great working order. The area was quiet and nice, bugs were minimal. The creek was running out back (our toddler loved wading and playing on the rocks), and there were lots of sweet blackberries on the bushes. Great spot!
Romantic Cozy Getaway
We loved Cloud 9! After 15 years of marriage and parenting three kids, we finally had a 'mini-moon'. It was amazing: the view, the house, the hot tub...
Our only issue was that the price was a bit steep for just two nights, considering I had to wash the bath robes and found strong language against leaving any dishes...
We will splurge again though, it was well worth it!
Los Altos, Ca
Cloud 9 was the perfect get away for us and our two small dogs. We started our stay off with in home massages, a recommendation by Russian River Get aways. Very cozy cottage with its own private beach. Great neighborhood for walks and runs. Have already recommended Cloud 9 to friends.
Fernando, Adriana and our 3 happy dogs :)
We are coming back!!!
This place is magical!!! We had a blast with our three dogs and a it's a very romantic place as well. Sunny days and stary nights, so nice!!! The creek was very clean and our dogs loved it!!! The swim hole just steps from the house was our favorite spot to have a swimn first things in the morning. Just a few things we would like to recomend the owner to consider adding to Cloud 9...we didn't want wast a second of our vacation washing dishes, so a dishwasher would be very handy. A screen door on the bedroon door to the balcony would be very nice so we could sleep with the balcony door open on a warm night and hear the creek soothing sound from the bed without worrieng about bugs. The pathway to the creek was so crowded with blackberies bushes that it could be trimmed down a lot and still look rustic but safer to walk without hurting yourself or the dogs pawns with all the thorns from the plants (like we all did). Also we didn't find recycling garbage bin and we didn't feel good about it considering the place have nature all around it, but we reclycled anyway. Overall was a very special place and we are coming back in august for our anniversary. If these little adjustments could be arranged fefore our return it would be a very nice surprise for us. We all recommend this place!!!
happy we came
Relaxing, enjoyable and restful
Everything I expected and then some...very quiet and peaceful, cute and clean cabin, everything the site promised.

Quiet, comfortable, lovely place to relax.
We had a lovely time, relaxed, read, walked the dogs in the redwoods. It was a very quiet time of the year, so we had a very nice quiet vacation.

Beautiful getaway spot
Everything about Cloud 9 was as advertised...nice location, great light, quiet, well-stocked kitchen, etc.
Spent two wonderful nights here with the wife and will surely return. A couple of things that made the whole experience only 'Very Good' as opposed to 'Awesome'...1)the dishes and glassware were dirty. Crusted chunks of sauce on the bowls/plates/cups. Even though you pay a $80 cleaning fee, guests are supposed to clean their own dishes and whoever was there before us did a poor job so we had to clean our dishes and glasses before using them too. 2) Hot tub could have been hotter. It was set to 99 (instead of the 102-104 in the literature). But the babbling creek and feel of escape from the city made it all worthwhile.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 04/22/2011
We’re so glad these guests enjoyed their stay, and we’re sorry for the issues they encountered. We do strive to make our homes as clean and welcoming as possible. The dishes and the hot tub were both previous guest error, but we regret that we didn’t catch and correct before these guests arrived. We ask guests to do their own dishes because the cleaners mostly don’t have time to do dishes and clean thoroughly in the time allotted between many bookings. Most of the time, people do a good job, but there is the occasional misfire.
I thought I will get depressed in the midst of the redwoods...but this location and the house rejuvinated me and my Husband like nothing else. I just love this place and plan to come back soon. I love the swing. Only down side is that gurneville is 20 mins away that was just my concern since I was travelling with an 18 month old who tends to get hurt very easily and the nearest medical center is in gurneville. But thankfully everything around is just too safe . I love this place cloud 9. That is how it made us feel like on cloud 9 !!

Peaceful, Magical Setting
I took my sweetie to Cloud Nine on a getaway weekend to celebrate our first anniversary.
It was perfect for the occasion - very quiet, peaceful environment, gorgeous views from every room and the constant soothing sound of the creek in the background.
The porch swing was great and the hot tub amazing -- take a long soak and look up at tons of stars in the night sky. It was too cold for swimming in the creek, but there was a very inviting spot just downstream...we'll keep it in mind for next time.
Oh, and our dog was postively over the moon with happiness. She swam to exhaustion and wants to go back asap :).

Cloud 9, Third Stay
This is the third time we have stayed at Cloud 9, and the tenth stay with Russian River Getaways. Cloud 9 is perfect, being on Austin Creek, with the forest all around. Our dog loved it, and it is relaxing and tranquil.
Creek side fun
We had a wonderful stay at cloud 9. The house was very comfortable and had
everything we needed. Location on the creek was great. The dogs had a blast
playing in the water.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
San Jose, CA
Cloud 9 is a fantastic getaway.
I was looking for a quite getaway from my busy life in the South SF Bay and this house delivered for me and my girlfriend. Cloud 9 is a very well maintained cabin right next to a beautiful creed. With 3 decks, BBQ, well stocked kitchen (pots and pans not food) and a hottub you have everything you need for a great getaway.
We had an issue where the hot tub was not heated properly and it did not get fixed during our stay, but the management company was kind enough to refund us some of our $$ for the inconvenience which was good of them. I've used RR getaways before and they are usually very on this so I'll chalk it up to a one time fluke as I will definitely call them again when I need a local vacation and some quite time to enjoy some fresh air in a beautiful location.

a little slice of heaven, with some old testament overtones
We have stayed at Cloud 9 three times now, and have
really enjoyed each stay. The house is so, so clean
and neat and the kitchen well-stocked, the views
are gorgeous, and the hot tub is the perfect
temperature. We will back again soon, I'm sure.
However, one feature was a bit different this time.
While in previous visits, our experience felt very
private, on this trip we got several knocks at the
door, which really disturbed the mood that we felt
we were paying for.
Because there was a downpour that weekend, the hot
tub lid was saturated and weighed many times its
normal weight. So at one point, we got out of the
hot tub and went back in to get dressed before
struggling to get it on. Soon there was a rap at
the door -- the hot tub maintenance person knocking
to say he just happened to be driving by and saw
the lid off and wanted us to know that leaving the
lid off is bad for the electrical system.
Next, even though we had gotten a special deal for
late check-out as returning customers, during our
last hour when we were having a cozy, quiet moment
on the porch swing, there was another knock at the
door. This time it was the cleaning staff. No one
had told her we had a late check-out.
She left and said she'd come back later, and we
cozied up again, but moments later, there was
another knock on the door. The hot tub guy again --
wondering why we were still there. He hadn't been
told about our late check-out either.
What was disturbing about all the visits wasn't
that the staff weren't nice -- they were! -- it was
just that we imagine ourselves having a very
secluded, private time. It's a little weird to know
that we are being watched in the hot tub, you know?
Next time, I think we'll wonder if every passing
car or truck is the owner, property manager, hot
tub guy, or someone else checking up on us.
Just what we needed...
We scheduled this vacation in the midst of overtime hours and very long days at work. We needed something to look forward to! So the thought of getting away for a few nights was the light at the end of the tunnel.
When the time finally arrived, we couldn';t have been more satisfied with our choice. The location on the creek was entirely peaceful and the home was very comfortable. A perfect size for two!
We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and using the grill, sitting on the porch swing and listening to the birds, walking along the creek and absorbing the peace of nature, and relaxing in the hot tub.
We found everything we needed there and appreciated the wireless internet (though we used it only minimally) and the free long-distance as our cell phones were out of range.
We'd recommend the place to anyone looking for some quiet time away from it all. We will definitely visit again!

Cloud 9 Vacation Rental
We stayed at Cloud 9 for one week. The house was super cute and cozy. Also very clean. We brought our Doxy along and they had 3 dog beds at the house to use, although we brought two of our own! LOVED the porch swing on the deck facing the creek. Very private setting - great place to unwind. The creek did not have as much water as we expected but it was still nice. It rained our second day but we didn't care, although it put a damper on the Blues Festival that was going on in Guernville. The only problem we had was that the VCR was broken (we didn't really care) and the smoke alarm battery was dying and kept bleeping one night, but they came out to the house very quickly after we called them in the morning. All in all a cozy, nice place to relax and unwind. The kitchen had everything you need, the bed was comfy, and having internet access was a plus. Also enjoyed their collection of magazines and books.
What to say?
It was one of the most relaxing Vacations we had in a long time .Area around Russian River is amazing.
Cabin we rented for a Week is great place to spend relaxing vacation ...That can Include great hiking,Kayaking .....super tasty Coffee and Cookies in local Bakeries .
You have to go and see for your self.
A Bit of Heaven
Hey folks this is Happy and Buddy and we're of the four paw variety. We LOVE it at Cloud 9. As much as we love bones this treat was even more special bcs we got our human back. Our family has lost some loved ones this year and our "mom" had stopped laughing and with all the sad details involved she stopped playing with us. Well while here at Cloud 9 on the first day while hiking and swimming in the creek we heard a sound that got our tails wagging like nothing else could. Our "mom" was laughing again. Even better,she laughed the whole time we were there and we had so much fun we STAYED AN EXTRA NIGHT. She played with us again and with no distractions- it was WONDERFUL! The water was deep enough for us to have a BLAST and in some spots deep enough for even our "mom" to swim in. We walked for hours and spent our relaxation on the wonderful porch while she basked in the moon light and hot tub. Our souls feel as cleansed as that beautiful clear water and at Cloud 9 the water makes a babbling brook sound that is soo peaceful we didn't have a desire to watch tv. "Mom" loved reading her Bible next to the waters edge and watching the sun come up. We sure worked up our appetites and that kitchen is fantastic! Lots of thoughtful extras. "Mom" met the owner who she says is a very nice man, nicer than the staff at R.R.G's. Please watch out for the timer locking you out early as it did us, thank God we were all together and had our keys or we would have been in a big mess. It locked us out electronicaly a half hour early,and R.R.G's attitude was "Oh well!" The owner's kindness more than made up for it and bcs of him we will be back. It is very rare to find a porch swing in such a GORGEOUS setting and that was one of our favorite parts! Our loved ones are in Heaven and now thanks to Cloud 9 we get a little bit of heaven too. Most definatley a full 5 paws from all of us! PS it was so good our mom is still happy and our play continues. Thank you Jesus and Cloud 9!
Response from Russian River Getaways - 06/27/2009
We're thrilled with this feedback as this cabin is truly magical. Just a comment on the keyless entry problem. We've been struggling with this issue of early lock-out and we have determined that it is a problem with the programming not taking into account our daylight savings time. Our services manager is working with the keyless entry company to see how we can resolve this. Believe me, we are far from indifferent to this issue;we just don't have a solution yet. I'm sorry one of our staff gave you that impression.
I love Cloud 9. My husband and I stayed in Cloud 9 in November of 2007 on our honeymoon. I brought him back in March 2009 to celebrate his birthday. We had a wonderful time sitting in the hot tub, under the beautiful stars, listening to the creek. March was a wonderful time as it had been raining and the creek had quite a bit of water in it. The sound was amazing.
It was lovely to stay in Cloud 9 as there is a great, stocked kitchen. We stayed in two nights and bbq'd which was great. I also was able to take my husband to one of the amazing, fine restaurants in the area. There are so many to choose from!!!
We had an amazing time and I am hoping to return soon.

Perfect place to fall in love...
I took my girlfriend away for a valentines
week. The cabin was perfect for us two and the
The Hot Tub was wonderful to sit in at night,
we could hear the river rushing past us while
we were surrounded by the beautiful Redwoods..
There was lots to do during the day in the
russian river area, but it was far enough away
from everything that it felt like we had the
whole world to ourselves...
Thank you for a wonderful stay. What a
