My Heart Rested
Left on 08/24/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Kathy A
My husband and I had a wonderful week in the Russian River Valley. Our stay was exactly as ordered -- a well-provisioned home in a quiet neighborhood, small town nearby with both local stores as well as a 24/7 Safeway, close to outdoor activities (Armstrong Woods, kayaking, the Pacific) as well as wineries and local festivals. Some days we did nothing; others we went out walking, driving or hiking for a while. The house had lots of room inside and outside to sit, read, talk, eat. Read more
We're so glad you enjoyed Heartsrest and hope that you'll come back soon. Thanks for the great review. -Rachel
Body, Mind and Soul Rest at Heartsrest

Enchanting yet intellectual retreat
Left on 08/07/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Yury
Enchanting as much as intellectual retreat in the heart of Russian river community.
These wonderfully appointed small home and grounds are great for two couples of friends or, as in our case, for two generations getting together for a week of relaxation and remembrance.
What made it particularly appealing to all of us was a small but well sourced library of English classics, as well as architectural and historical albums and books. I wouldn't make a better choice for quiet reading under the soaring giants. A great armstrong redwoods reserve, small and picturesque wineries nearby on the slopes of Westside, a slow drive toward the Pacific along the river... No need to advertise this real gem of Nothern Sonoma.
I wish I can do this timely escape from the cold San Francisco every month.
The management was precise, simple, and unobtrusive. All instructions are given upfront and well preparing for the convenient stay. Read more
We'd love to have you back for reading and relaxing. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and thanks so much for the review. -Rachel
Hearts rest a sanctuary of comfort.
Left on 07/09/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | H2olocal
There are so many thoughtful touches both in side this home and in the garden areas. We felt so appreciative to have stumbled upon this little gem.
During our stay we felt as if we were in our own cozy home...the kitchen is fabulous and I would encourage settling in with some nice wine and baking beautiful pastries or roast tenderloin or vegan Thom Kha...this is a very nurturing environment that nudges your creative spirt.
And when you have your special someone's with you, the visit goes from great to fabulous in this environment.
So...thanks to you, we certainly attained Hearts rest. A blessing indeed.
If this property were ever to sell I would be first in line with my heart in hand begging please let it be mine and I wil care for it thru the rat of my uaays Read more
This is such a wonderful description of this very special property. Thank you so much for writing it. We do hope you'll be back soon. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
Loved this place!!
Left on 05/10/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Jessica
Heartsrest was the perfect place to stay for my birthday weekend. The hot tub was perfect. The rooms were beautifully furnished, well-maintained, and comfy. The kitchen was great & stocked with most of the cooking items one would need. I absolutely loved all the tables inside and outside to enjoy drinks or meals. If it's nice weather, there are four chairs perfect for laying out. The beach and stores are a short drive away. The only downside was that at first there did not seem to be room for more than one car to park, but you can open the side gate & park two cars inside. I will definitely return! Read more
Heartsrest is its own little private hideaway. Like you said, it's close to shopping and the river beaches. It's the perfect getaway from the world. We're so happy your birthday weekend was enjoyed in one of our homes. See you again!

this place was a cool place to stay. it was very private with a great yard, BBQ and hot tub to relax and enjoy. we enjoyed all the windows looking out to the nice yard. we ended up washing them to see the full beauty of the outside. the wood burning stove made the cabin feel very cozy along with the nice decor. the bed was a little hard for me but it had nice bedding. the office people were very friendly and helpful with finding us the right place for our needs and wants. thanks ladies. thank you to the owners for sharing your cabin with us. we enjoyed our stay. cindy and gary

Guerneville Gem for Oaktown Boys
Left on 09/12/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Pete and Sean
This home was perfect for us! Totally private and fenced bordered on one side by literally, a moat!...that'd be the seasonal creek that meanders past the house. And sunshine, not one of the overlay shaded Russian River getaway spots. Creative, comfortable, clean, peaceful, well-equipt, interesting and dog friendly! Super nice kitchen! My partner, pooch and I are seasoned vacation home renters and after experiencing many stinkers, this one is in the winners category...and, I guess, we're picky ;)
In a perfect world, if I had to comment on something, I guess I'd say to make the bathroom a half bath and create a second full bath on the adjacent wall in the jumbo bedroom...Not a complaint, just a suggestion. Loved the place!
Wine Tasting Vacation
Left on 07/19/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Carolina Kid
At first, we weren't sure about the house and location being a first timer to the Russian River area. All the hustle and bustle of main street Guerneville spooked us! But after a day of relaxation at Heartsrest we were ready. The house worked out great. The fencing around the house provided a wonderful private vacation that allowed us to enjoy our daily "capture" of wines and treats. The house became our home base for daily excursions into the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek, Sonoma and even Napa. The jacuzzi ended each day with a relaxing wind down that was perfect. The kitchen had appliances that we wish we had at our house! Everything worked out wonderfully! Read more
It's great that you had such a great time at this wonderful home. Please do come back soon. -Rachel, general manager

Fantastic service from Russian River Getaways, very helpful at all times and lovely friendly staff, especially Josette! Only 1 small complaint about the house is that the upholstry smelt of dog! otherwise loved it. Thank you Rrgetaways. Read more
You are so welcome! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back soon. We'll check out the smell and take care of anything that needs it. -Rachel, general manager

Great place! We had some coffee and tea over a little hill and watched a creek. The landscaping was done beautifully, and the house inside was organized and decorated well. All of my family loved everything. The spa was great also. The office people were very friendly and helpful. We will be back! Read more
We're so glad you enjoyed this lovely home and its fantastic gardens (and of course the hot tub). Please do come back soon. -Rachel, general manager
Strange fully concreted outdoors!
Left on 10/08/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Heron Doe
Hi Heartsrest was a strange stay because:
1.the whole outside was poured concrete, which takes away the beautiful Russian River nature experience.
2.The gate system was crazy, you have to go out one gate with lock and key and the other gate you cannot leave from because it locks from inside, it was very impractical.
3. The bathroom was awful, the sink doesn't drain and the shower head is too long so you have to smash up against the shower door to get the stream of water.
4.The bedspreads are old and funky and the pillows smell like unwashed hair.
5. It is very difficult to park there should maybe be a warning about the small dimension of the entrance to the car park.
6. we could not get the wood burning stove to work, and we are pretty proficient.
7. The instructions to drive there were not accurate, it says when you turn on Cazadero Road that it is the 1st house when indeed it is approx. 1 1/4 mile down the road.
8. The re-done kitchen was fabulous, love the red granite counters.
I know I've been quite critical, maybe I am spoiled by the beauty and attention to detail that Oar House and Wicker House provide. Really the shower is a problem.

Always nice to leave San Francisco Fog for some Guerneville sunshine. We came up for the Jazz on the River, but spent most of our time at Heartsrest. So serene, and quiet. Not to mention, even our bulldog enjoyed a great time. A great dog beach in Monte Rio, only 10 minutes from Heartsrest. The house was so comfortable and had all the amenities you could possibly need. Can't wait to come back.

What I liked most about Heartsrest
Left on 08/13/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Dale Campbell
To begin, one of the reasons my partner and I stay at Heartsrest is because of space. There are three distinct areas outside where one can spend time. And, on a long trip, it's nice to be by oneself in one of these areas from time to time. There is also a washer and dryer, which saves on costs. The living room is full of light with lots of windows, making it feel like you're outside while still inside. And the wood stove adds ambiance while being very effective.
The only one thing I missed was a dishwasher. Oh well, maybe I'll be able to marry mine if Prop 8 is completely defeated.

Russian Rivers Getaways and Heartsrest were just what my husband and I needed!! Great location-darling cabin-nice neighborhood-wonderful rest and peaceful surrondings.
We loved it and would rent it again and again :)

Our favorite cabin
Left on 07/29/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Sheila M. Mabry
The cabin was great. We loved the gardens, the gate and fence that surrounded the house. We felt very safe. The decor is beautiful, like staying in someone's house not a vacation rental. The location was perfect to town and to take long walks. The only negatives were the oven didn't always work and there was mold in the shower. Both issues can fixed. We already rented in for next year :)

Great setting under the redwoods. Beautiful patio areas with extensive rockwork, overlooking the creek. House contained everything we needed. Bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. Hot tub was great. Can't think of a negative other than we wish it was closer to Reno! Picking up keys and returning was quick and easy.
Visited three wineries and tasted some great zins.

We liked everything about Heartsrest: location, size, layout, price. It is fenced in on three sides(4th is a cliff over a stream) so it was great for our dog. Beds and living room were comfortable, cooking facilities and grill worked fine. It was less that five minutes drive outside Guerneville. We got the winter rate, which was an excellent deal. The minor minus points were: shower head unflexible and aimed too high, there was some noise from the hot tub audible in the master bedroom (could be I didn't completely turn it off, but don't know about this).
There were lots of interesting books on the shelves and on the whole it felt like someone's comfortable summer house - which is just what we wanted.
Left on 03/24/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | Irene Adler
Our visit was restful, quiet and completely isolated. We enjoying staying places
where we don't have to interact with other people as our business lives are
filled with people and it is wonderful to be alone. The place was charmingly
decorated and filled with light and fortunately sunshine. The location was not
that far from town and the sounds of the creek, delightful. We brought our
own wood and enjoyed an evening warmed by the wood burning stove. The
least positive thing was the parking but not everyone has an oversized truck,
but there was sufficient space on the street by the back gate to park.
welcoming and tranquil

The artistically designed outdoor stone patios surrounding the house made
indoor-outdoor living easy. The interior was comfortable as well, and the
location under the redwoods was magical. The house didn't have the
impersonality that many vacation rentals do; it truly felt like spending a week
in a friends' home.
