What Past Guests Are Saying
Quiet, relaxing vacation home
Stayed for a weekend trip. Very nice house, nice layout (1 bedroom and 1 great room with living room, dining room, kitchen), great deck (full length of the great room) and hot tub. Used the bbq and it worked great. Plenty of space, large kitchen with everything you need. Great location in the redwoods, especially sitting in the hot tub in the morning. Very quiet and peaceful. Had one issue with some electrical outlets but nothing major and the property manager and owner were extremely quick to respond. Tv isn't the newest but it got the job done for a movie we watched. Short trip to the Russian river, Armstrong Redwoods state preserve, and also out to the coast and beaches. We did all of those in a weekend and never felt like we spent too much time in the car. For a quiet, relaxing getaway from civilization, this place was great.
We had a great time at this rental. The house has an easy to use fireplace, hot tub, and grill. The internet was reliable and decently fast.
We also did not find the lot across the street to be distracting. You only see it when walking out the front door, but I can see why others might - it kind of drags down the whole scene up on the hill.
You can see the other house from the back deck, but we only saw their car drive by a couple times. We never heard or saw another person up there.
There's lots to do within 15-20 minutes - small Sonoma towns, hiking, wine tasting, the beach. And even more if you want to drive into Sebastopol.
We would highly recommend Euphoria!!!

serene & quiet
Had a lovely time at this rental. The house was very nicely designed and very well appointed. The fireplace, hottub, grill and wifi were all we needed. We wanted a quiet, restful getaway in the Russian River area and we found it here.
We really enjoyed the fact that the back deck was fenced so our dog could hang out there. I did not find the house across the street to be distracting - I wonder if it was cleaned up since some of the other previous reviews.
There is one other house that can be seen from the back deck, but I only saw them once and the house is far enough away that I still felt like we had our privacy.
There's not much else to do in this area, which was the point (for us). Guerneville is about a 15 min drive, but we knew that when renting in Cazadero. Still, we did not lack for options for groceries or things to do when we felt like exploring the area.
I'd recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing getaway.

very relaxing and breathtaking
When we first got to Euphoria, we were amazed how peaceful, quiet and secluded it was. It was more than we ever thought it would be. The only noise we heard were the squirrels and the birds. The rental itself was beautiful, clean and had everything we could have wanted. We didn't want to leave...it was like a different world...We don't get away often but it was a welcome getaway from all the hustle and bustle of daily life..We will definitely be back..Our dog loved it too...there was even a dog bowl in the rental..we brought our own but that was a nice touch..our dog felt welcomed too!!!
Real is better than fake
Serene,relaxing forest get away!
The rental staff were great to work with. We chose Euphoria for a quiet, woodsy get away. That it was. The redwood forest is lovely. My daughter and i enjoyed morning walks and built up some muscle tone going back up the hill. The cabin is great but it is not a luxurious location; some visitors might find the the mix of poorly maintained and well maintained dwellings disconcerting. We didn't care. We had a great time cooking meals in the well stocked kitchen, grilling on the deck and enjoying the hot tub. The house is clean, contemporary, and comfortable. After busy days on the coast or at vineyards it was great to retreat to a secluded, woodsy cottage. We didn't care about the exposed vehicles and shed across from the front door. No one was there; there was no activity and no noise. It looks like a privacy fence might be rebuilt. After hearing about our stay, another family member wants to contact Russian River Getaways! I wish there were 2-3 day summer rental options. We paid for 4 days and then a flight delay only allowed us to enjoy 2 but we figured the location and the amenities, even for only 2 days, equaled a less desireable hotel. For the cleaning fee, there should be more attention given to under beds, toothbrush holder, rim of hot tub.

We'll let the cleaner know to give those areas special attention in the future. -Rachel, General Manager
A cute house in mediocre surroundings
This small cabin was comfortable and cute. It's got a private deck with a hot tub, grill and table, a decent sized main room and kitchen, and a comfortable bed. What's not really shown in the photos of the place is what's around it. There's a bunch of construction equipment - plows and tractors and the like - across the street in an open muddy lot and that's about it. There's a house behind this one, too, up the hill from the back deck, but little else up this steep road. There aren't any trails around it or anything, and the road itself is nothing but no-trespassing marked driveways. A walk down the hill to the creek isn't too bad - about the same as walking down and back up 15 flights of stairs - but the creek (in July at least) is really low. Basically, we got up and left and didn't come back until we were done for the day.
The amenities are nice. Washer/dryer inside, a nice kitchen, the hot tub was spacious and clean.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 07/24/2012
The lot is there, but it's rarely used and not visible from most of the house - only when you walk out the front door. We do not claim that there are hiking trails at this home, and there aren't, but it is a short drive to a lot of wonderful activities. Most people enjoy the setting, but I'm glad you were able to enjoy the house itself. -Rachel, general manager
This is our second trip to Euphoria and we had a great stay. The cabin is perfect for us and our westie. It's remote enough for peace and quiet, while also close enough to several places we like to visit. Euphoria has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. The redwoods that surround the property remind you that your in a serene and wonderful place.
The only downside is the property across the street. It seems more delapidated cars are stored there than last time and it seems that some trees have been cut down. Just hope the owners can get that property owner to clean it up. Still, it's a great stay. Just shut the front blinds and all is well.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 12/22/2011
Thanks for this great review, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. The owner of the property across the street has been approached, and it's seemed like it's been getting better over time, but it's not something we have control over. Most folks do just keep those blinds down, as they do for any windows that are on the street side. -rkl
Cabin was nice, a little out of the way than we thought. Great out of the way spot. I do agree the view from the front of the house onto garbage and old cars wasnt pleasant. I would see if something can be done about cleaning that up. very quite.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 10/06/2011
This yard has largely been cleaned up now. -rkl
San Jose, CA
comfy quiet cabin
Overall this was a wonderful weekend stay. We loved the cabin as it is very well kept up and the atmosphere was beautiful. We booked this place because the reviews had some great reviews and some not so perfect reviews. We did see the abandoned car type lot directly across the street and up the road, but this isn't the fault of this owner. There was some chainsawing on saturday but we were gone most of the day. We went to bodega bay beach and it was beautilful! A must see! We brought our yellow lab and our chihuahua that we just rescued. Our yellow lab had a great time swimming in the river which is about 3 miles away (monte rio beach) and our chihuahua almost got picked up by a owl outside the cabin at dusk 2 times!!! He really went for it and we screamed and he flew off..he was about 1 foot away from our dog..it was scary...that is what you see in these areas..this owl had a wing span of 5 feet!! The hot tub was delightful and relaxing. I understand what other reviewers were talking about in the bedroom and the lighting..even though you have 2 lamps and 2 bed lamps (one not working), it was just too dark but we slept very well. We loved the kitchen!! for improvements..only a suggestion..1) new towels, new couch hideabed and better lighting in bedroom. If you want a quiet, relaxing time close to the river, beach and downtown..this would be a good pick! A+ to the company who handles the reservations!!! was so easy!! Thank you.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 10/12/2011
So glad these guests had such a great time. We checked out the towels and found nothing amiss, so I'm not sure what that's about. The burned out bulbs have been replaced, and the owner is putting some additional lighting in the bedroom. The hideabed is also going to get a new mattress soon. -rkl
If you want peace and quiet this is the place
So we got a late start and got to the area at around 10pm on our first night of four. As our GPS said the final turn was coming up I saw a little drive and said "is that it?". "Nah", said my wife, "that can't be it" but as we kept going it became clear we had missed it.
So I turned around and found the drive again and headed up this one lane unpaved road feeling like we were heading up some long private drive up a steep hill in the dark. Kinda scary/cool. Quick enough though we were at the place and with the combination lock were in without a problem.
My kids (20 and 15) were expecting a little sparse crude cabin apparently. I guess since I kept calling it a "cabin".
Great work by the guy who rebuilt the place. They even have a binder there where you can see work in progress pics of the him doing the work.
So the kids were pretty surprised when they came in and were in the hot tub pretty quick.
One night I was in the hot tub I thought it was so weirdly quiet. No critters running around. No birds talking...just silence.
Did a little exploring in the morning and it looks like there's only one neighbor really. He was doing a little chainsawing of something during the day. Every thing else on this hill seems to be rarely used.
If you're going to use the sleeper sofa be warned that it sags in the the middle a lot. Not a big problem if you sleep on your back like me. Otherwise it really sags in the middle.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 10/12/2011
Glad these folks enjoyed the house. GPS does not work in this area; just use our directions to the house. The sleeper mattress will be replaced soon.

Treat and Retreat
Euphoria is a magnificent building, cozy with every amenity, placed in dense woods and enveloped by fresh moist oxygen newly emitted from the trees and ferns. It is amazing how dark it gets there at night, uncanny really: a true perceptual phenomena. I am usually up at dawn, but got much needed sleep because I didn't recognize the signals of sunrise. The price was less than most others, I guess because of location but it was good to be away from the full tourist situation along the river. Yet we were just minutes from the water, hot sun and fairly good restaurants. We cooked too and that turned out to be pretty easy because the kitchen is well equipped for straight ahead meals. It was good. I would go there again. Even the property across the road seemed quaint in a rugged, pull yourself up by your boot straps kind of way. By the way T Mobile doesn't work there (god bless them) but Verizon was just fine. I got a little work done too. Internet access kicked right in.
Cabin in the Woods
The cabin was great. It is comfortable and clean. The check-in is wonderful. Both tanks to the grill were empty, so we couldn't grill. Also, it should be noted in the house instructions that the oven takes over an hour to preheat, so plan you cooking times appropriateley! It is a very relaxing home for the most part.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 09/08/2011
Apologies about the tanks. If these guests had called us about the tanks, we would have brought them new ones. We checked the oven out, and it seemed to heat just fine in a timely manner, so we're not sure what happened. We'll keep an eye on it though. -rkl
Our experience at Euphoria was wonderful!
We needed a get away, some where beautiful, secluded and peacefull and that is exactly what our experience at Euphoria was. The only thing I would changed about our trip and stay was the length, next time we will stay for a week!
We booked at the last minute, and it was a great vacation! The whole process with RR Getaways was simple, and the property was exactly as described. Euphoria is a really nice, modern, well maintained house. The woods are beautiful - we saw deer and a fox from the deck. Easy access to Guerneville (about 10 - 15 minutes), Monte Rio (with it's dog friendly beach), and Duncan's Mills. I'd definitely book this place again - good value!
Peaceful creek wonderland for adults, kids and dogs alike!
Had a fantastic weekend getaway with the family. Reservations couldn't have been any easier and both the owner and company (Russian River Getaways) were very helpful and accommodating when we had trouble locating the private beach access. The cabin is beautiful - both in setting and amenities. My husband and kids loved relaxing in the hot tub and looking up at the towering redwoods. The boys and dogs (unleashed) spent hours wandering in austen Creek catching crayfish splashing about. Great fresh baked breakfast goodies and coffee available 10 minutes away at either Gold Coast Bakery or Robert's Bakery. Overall a great destination for families with kids and dogs! We'll be back!
The cabin was perfect in every way! The setting was absolutely beautiful, and we can't wait to come back again for another stay soon.
San Francisco, CA
Beautiful interior cabin--exterior left much to be desired
The interior of the cabin was charming, clean, and newly built or renovated. The kitchen was large and great for cooking, the grill worked great, the bed was comfortable, the layout was open, and the cabin itself was comfortable with the exception of the lack of lighting in the bedroom. The cabin was a bit dark and did not have a view.
There are 3 or 4 neighbors very close, so it was more like being in a subdivision than in a remote mountain location.
One of the neighbors was doing construction during our stay and it was quite loud. The lot across the street houses junk appliances, abandoned cars, several scary-looking tool sheds, and many "No Trespassing" signs. It was a little scary and if I owned this cabin, I would definitely complain about this as an eyesore and even a possible safety hazard since most counties have regulations about junk cars and appliances being stored on residential lots. The neighbors behind and next to the cabin also had several visible "No Trespassing" signs, so the area was not welcoming at all. We did not use the hot tub on the back deck because there was no privacy, nor did we open the blinds much.
Another odd thing about this cabin was that the voicemail was full of messages from bill collectors. I had left the number for our pet sitter in case of an emergency, so I had to weed through the bill collector messages to see if the sitter had called.
The area of the Russian River was amazing: great hiking, swimming, canoeing, and wine tours, but we will not be staying in this cabin again. We think that for the money, we could have gotten a more secluded location without construction noise and scary junkyard lots across the street.
I do recommend the Russian River as a vacation spot, and maybe this company has better cabins than the one we stayed in. Call and ask questions to make sure the cabin has what is important to you.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 07/21/2011
There are four lamps in the bedroom, and there is a view of the surrounding woods from every window. Most people comment on the peace and privacy of this location, so it really is a matter of perspective. However, there are some no trespassing signs, neighbor's attempts to keep people and dogs from hiking off onto their property. There are no very close or even close neighbors, but there are are other houses on the street. The lot directly across the street is used by a neighbor for some contractor equipment/vehicles - not scary, somewhat utilitarian - but only one kitchen window faces that way. I saw and heard no construction, so it was probably just a neighbor working on some week-end project. If we know of construction in a neighborhood, we do let guests know. We apologize about the phone messages; these messages have nothing to do with this house and they have been stopped. -rkl
"Euphoria" induces just that! A beautiful, spacious, very comfortably appointed home with a fantastic deck, great kitchen and wonderful ambiance. We spent a really lovely weekend there and would come back in a heartbeat!
Cozy, open and private
great open floor plan
The cabin was wonderful, close to Guerneville. Had all the ammenities and was very cozy and private. Our dogs love it and so did we. We suggest more lighting in the bedroom and replacing the queen sofa bed. This one was very uncomfortable. Other than that we would definetely return.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 01/26/2012
There are four lamps in the bedroom. The sofabed has a topper, and should be fine, as long as it's pulled out all the way. More recently, the owner is going to add more lighting to bedroom and will replace the sofabed mattress. -rkl
Sucka Free City
Blissfull and Relaxing, Can't wait to return!
very clean and sharp little cabin. hot tub + redwoods + privacy makes you forget everything except the pleasures of life...
Quiet Relaxing anniversary
We enjoyed our stay at Euphoria and the keyless access allowed us to head striaght to the property. Only wish this property were a bit more secluded, other home above looks down on back patio.
Just Beautiful and Relaxing
I had a wonderful time renting out this cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. It had everything you needed to enjoy your stay.
I went with my boyfriend and we just relaxed, took walks, cooked (especially bar-b-q), watched movies, and enjoyed the hot tub which was super.
I would defiantly rent out this spot/location again. Although there was a couple of houses around, it was private and it felt like nobody was around. Actually we didn't even see the neighbors.
I rated the service as a 5 although we didn't have any service requirements, which was a good thing.. Check-in/out was great; keyless entry. No need go to go to the rental office. Lights were on when we arrived, and the hot tub was already heated.
My pet also enjoyed her stay. She was comfortable. I also like the fact that the deck was enclosed, so I didn't have to worry about her safety when she was outside in the back.
The only thing is arriving at night. The street sign is very small and very hard to see. It took us a couple of trips up and down the road before we saw it.
No cell phone service at all. That was great. We were detached from everyday life.
Me and my Honey loved it!!!
I would also recommend it during the winter. It's so beautiful.
Clean & cozy, but we'd prefer to try another cabin next time
We loved the "Winter Special" of 3 nights for the price of 2, however with that little extra discount, we both agreed that we would of rather spent an extra $20 a night to stay in a cabin that was a little bit more comfortable and centrally located. We were bummed to pull up to the cabin and see that directly across from it was a run-down abandoned house with a junk yard in front of it. The cabin itself was very clean, had beautiful hardwood floors, comfortable bed, a gorgeous deck (loved the hot tub underneath the redwood trees) and a very user friendly electric fireplace. However, the couch and recliner chair have definitely been through some wear and weren't very comfortable.
We came to Cazadero to have a relaxing weekend out in the woods, visit some wineries, eat at some local restaurants, and have some down-time at our cabin, which we did get - however, next time we will probably stay in Guerneville, which still has that "out in the woods" feeling, but it's way more centrally located to the wineries, beaches, restaurants, and grocery stores. I would recommend Euphoria to families with kids, or couples that are not planning on doing a lot of activities that require extensive driving.
We've stayed with RR Getaways once before and the folks who helped us book the cabins were so friendly and accommodating. The keyless entry was great, and the check-in/out process was effortless. We will definitely book a cabin with RRG again, but probably not Euphoria.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 09/08/2011
The sleeper has a topper and should be okay as long as it's pulled out all the way. -rkl
San Francisco, CA
Overall, the propery and my stay was very good. However, there are a couple of areas that could be improved. The television in the living room is very old and in poor condition. The sound quality is not good. Also, the overall condition of the living room sofa, recliner and mattress is also very poor, providing little support. Other than those couple of items everything else was excellent including the service, ease of making the reservation and arrival at the property.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 09/29/2011
Glad these folks liked the house and our service. The TV is older, but we inspected it, and the sound and picture are fine, just not high definition. -rkl
Relaxing and quiet
The only thing that was missing was a wine opener, every other kitchen tool that could have been needed was present but someone might have taken the wine opener as I could not find one. Other than that the place was awesome and I will book it again in the future!!
Response from Russian River Getaways - 10/30/2011
There is a wine opener! -rkl
Clean and Cozy!
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Euphoria house. Our stay and the entire RR Getaways process were simple and stress-free. The location is pretty far off the beaten path, which we enjoyed. The house is small--perfect for two visitors. We especially loved the big kitchen and the back deck for relaxing. I would say that the only (slight) drawback is probably the proximity of the neighbors. The house itself is not very secluded. However, this didn't take away from our experience. Overall, we loved the house and would certainly recommend it.
Peaceful sanctuary in the redwoods
This is a charming cabin in a peaceful setting that seems remote yet is just minutes (driving) from town. The cozy home has every amenity, quality kitchen ware and plenty of fresh towels! We liked the cable TV, wireless Internet, warming fireplace and well-maintained hot tub. The owners have decorated with quality throughout.
I feel that it's easy to have a great experience when all goes well. What really matters is what happens when you have something come up. That's what impressed me most about Euphoria. I called about a small issue, and both the agency and the owner responded to me within minutes to resolve it right over the phone. I felt bad to bother them about a small issue, but they invited me to call again for anything! We had no other issues and enjoyed our stay very much.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. In five to ten minutes, you can be at the coast for a scenic drive, dinner or lunch. Just minutes the other way and you have towns with shopping and wineries. All over the area you will find natural settings and scenic drives. Then come back to Euphoria and grill something delicious on the patio barbecue!
san francisco, ca
nice break from the city
nice weekend retreat. quiet, relaxing, and has everything you need for a short trip.
Bedroom had a musky moldy smell. Could have been the linens? Not sure.
Response from Russian River Getaways - 09/08/2011
We couldn't detect any smell after the fact, and there haven't been any other complaints about this. -rkl
Sweet & Comfortable!
I really enjoyed my stay at Euphoria! Very quite, private & comfortable. I enjoy the touch of the personal album (pictures)of how it was remodeled, amazing job. The hot tub was great under the redwood tree's (very clean). I will stay there again.
Good Customer Service
Our stay was a mixed bag, but Russian River Getaways corrected what they could and compensated us for the few issues we experienced.
We arrived to a cabin that had not been cleaned from the previous visitors. We called the Russian River office, and they sent an experienced cleaning caretaker (Thank you, REBA!) to correct the problem. The cabin owner also came by to replace burned out light bulbs and repair several clocks that had stopped.
Because of the relatively strict check-in/check-out times, we basically lost the first day while waiting for the cabin condition to be corrected. Again, the Russian River office gave us an additional night's stay to be used during a future visit. We appreciate your efforts to resolve these issues.
The second day gave us a chance to really enjoy the cabin and the surrounding area. The interior of the cabin is cozy and comfortable, the wireless Internet access is very fast, and the backyard patio (barbeque grill and hot tub) is great!
We walked down the main road where there is an access to a quiet stream, which our dog loved. It gave us the privacy that we were looking for.
Thank you for making things right for us.
SF Bay Area
Warm, comfortable romantic getaway
Loved the cabin. It feels brand new. I appreciated how well thought out the
furnishings are. Lots of beautiful dishes, all the cooking utencils you'd need,
wifi, reading lamps on each side of the King sized bed. The hot tub on the
deck was spacious and comfortable.
By the way, Russian River area in the winter is nearly tourist free and a great
place for walks in the rain.
San Francisco, CA
Super relaxing and scenic!!
My husband, dogs, and I had a great time experiencing all this cabin had to offer! Great location...very peaceful and relaxing. All the comforts of home with fresh towels, an extremely comfortable bed and a hot tub on the back deck! I hated leaving this place....it was the best!
