We just came back from a great long weekend at the Redwood Lodge. The house was great for a family of four plus 1 (Aunt). She was able to have a room and bathroom all to herself. The layout worked great and we loved that the house was clean and well-maintained. We enjoyed the deck and the dock and the canoe. The kitchen was well equipped. Other reviewers said it was small, but it was perfectly functional. I've definitely seen smaller! All the appliances worked fine and we had two in the kitchen doing prep and we were fine. Would love a better TV (world cup was on). Getting to the dock is a little daunting and the floating dock is very tiny (so more than one person at a time was a little dodgy. But, it all worked out. Water access is a definite luxury! Loved being able to paddle around in the canoe. Also, the neighbors were very friendly with us. The upstairs loft doesn't have a door, but that was the most comfortable bed (in my opinion). Also, the loft didn't have shades/curtains on the upper windows so if you're light sensitive, not the best room for you. Big plus was being able to pull one car into the garage and still have parking for three cars (even tho we only had three cars total). Would rent this property again. Also, Russian River Getaways customer service was excellent.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Stayed at Redwood Lodge for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The house had everything we could possibly need. A little chilly in the downstairs bedroom for Winter time. Very clean and lovely.

We've rented this property several times because for us it is a great location.One of my favorite things is to enjoy the view from the deck but they have allowed the shrubbery to become overgrown obstructing the view.The hide-a- bed was broken and the dishwasher as well.Even so we would still return if they made repairs.Russian river is a wonderful area,we golf,fish and lounge.Guernville is becoming such a nice little town to hang out.See you next time! Read more
We're glad you enjoyed Redwood Lodge. The owner is planning to trim the greenery, which is not an easy task for those riverfront homes. If you call next time, we can usually get whatever is problematic fixed while you're there so you don't have to suffer. The living room seating is being replaced. -Rachel
Disappointing riverfront home
Left on 07/23/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Dessert Rat
The river view was mostly blocked by trees. The river access was a joke. Almost vertical stairs that led to a dock that was sinking and tilted. The house was poorly cleaned... Lots of cobwebs inside the windows. The septic line overflowed right when guests were arriving for dinner. I will never rent this house again or recommend it to anyone. Read more
Thank you for the review. We'll check out the situation with the view and the dock, and remedy. The photos of the dock access on our website show very clearly what the access is, so there should have been no surprise, as far as the steepness, but the dock should not be sinking. The house was cleaned prior to arrival, but it sounds as though some things were missed. We'll track down the cleaner and make sure this doesn't happen again. Next time (at a different house), if you call us, we'll take care of any problems for you. The septic line issue was beyond our control. Vacation rentals are houses with all the normal issues houses have. All we can do is deal as quickly as we can with anything that comes up. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways

Great family vacation

The house is in a private, quiet neighborhood. The three bedrooms and baths are seprated, making it ideal for multiple couples. The river access is steep, but looking it is one of the few houses with any access. It is in the middle of large redwood trees.
It has a nice deck area, as well as large living room.
When we arrived we had a minor drain problem, that we were able to take care of; but the management was going to be on top of getting someone there promply on a Saturday night.
We will stay there again.
Rustic and relaxing
Left on 06/13/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Afg
Went up there with two other couples, all three bedrooms were very nice. Even the downstairs one connected to the garage. We enjoyed BBQ on the wrap around deck overlooking the river. The common areas were relaxing. The kitchen is small but truth be told most of our time was spent outside. The canoe and kayak were great which allowed us to get out on the water even more. One night we walked to a nearby bar and sang karaoke. Overall affordable, rustic, good time and great location. Would go back. Read more
The location of Redwood Lodge is ideal. Within walking distance of the golf course, restaurant and bar and RIGHT on the river! It's a great place to relax or go out "on the town" and have a good time! Glad you did just that.

Could do better elsewhere
Left on 10/22/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | Disappointed
The house is in a nice location and neighborhood. The house smelled of mildew when we arrived. The carpet on the stairway and upstairs hall is stained and dirty. Would strongly suggest it be replaced. If the house is not used frequently, we would suggest it be aired out prior to guests arriving. First impression was poor due to the smell. We called the office to ask about the deoderizer and tell them the heater in the main floor bathroom was not working and never received a call back. We would not recommend this house or company to any of our friends. Read more
Redwood Lodge is an older, traditional River home, priced accordingly. This house is very affordable for six people who don't want a home they're going to have to worry excessively about. The house does not have mildew. It does get musty sometimes, but clears out quickly once things are opened up. We don't ever not return a call when help is asked for, so I 'm not sure what happened, but I do apologize.

Beautiful tree house on the river!
Left on 09/06/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | TravelsRUsCalifornia
The setting for this rental speaks for itself! Dramatic lot set amongst large redwoods, and right on the Russian River with private dock access.
House provides a single kayak, and canoe. It sleeps 3 couples comfortably with additional bedding for 4 more(futon and pull out sofa).
Furnishings are basic but more than adequate. Kitchen is stocked with basic cooking items, bring stuff if you're planning a large scale cooking event.
Being on a relatively quiet part of the river, away from the crazies in Guerneville, and having direct access were the best aspects of this rental. Read more
I hope by "crazies," you mean the thriving bustle of a tourist town in high season. Guerneville has a wonderfully colorful population, but there are no more crazies here than in any other town. -Rachel, General Manager

Redwood Lodge is a great getaway. It is right across from Bohemian Grove which means there is nothing on the opposite side of the river, making the deck a great place to hang out and watch wildlife. Comes a with canoe and kayak. It is not fancy, but is comfortable. Great for groups and families, we will be back.
Great site on the river!

This property is situated right on the river on a steep bank. There are large redwoods around the house and it was very quiet. There is open land on the other side of the river. The basement room is more than a little funky and whoever stays there may feel they got the short end of the stick. The carpet on the top level needs badly to be cleaned. House was well equipped with a canoe and kayak, lots of beach chairs, tubes, etc. Great swimming and boating a short drive to Rio Monte and Guerneville. Read more
We're glad you had a great time! This is not a basement room at all, not a bit underground. It is a ground level room, and the access is through the garage, which is made clear on the website, so there should have been no surprises about its funkiness. The upstairs carpet is not dirty, just well-worn. -rkl
Everybody had great time!

We had a great experience staying at Redwood Lodge.
Great location near golf course, amazing view of Russian River and redwoods from the balcony.Even we don't play golf it was nice to walk around the course. The house was comfortable and had everything that we needed. Everyone in our group (age ranged from 6 to 81 y.o.)found something to do there.. from kayaking, fishing to listening classic music&reading; good books.. Having a boat,kayak &tubes; was a big plus. The only thing that I didn't like at first was the old and dusty smell when we moved in. But after we opened all the doors and windows it was gone. Read more
Glad these folks liked this house and the area. Upon inspection, we couldn't detect any smell. -rkl
Overall positive experience but the property needs repair.
Left on 07/06/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | Elizabeth
We enjoyed our stay at Redwood Lodge. The keyless entry was easy. The house met our needs however, the upstair BR had no door and the downstairs BR opened up to the garage. The dishwasher was broken and the sliding doors jammed. Read more
So glad these folks enjoyed their stay. The website clearly says that the downstairs bedroom is accessed through the garage, so this should not have been a surprise. A new dishwasher has been installed, and the slider needed some oiling, which has now been done. -rkl
Great Location for a Golf Vacation
Left on 05/12/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Zizanie
Pros: Walk to golf course. Nice deck with river view. Bedrooms in separate parts of the house for privacy. Great concierge service (arranged in-home massages).
Cons: No hot tub. Seasonal deck only (it was hot and we could not access river). Small kitchen (we like to cook). Read more
The deck is year round, but the dock does go in and out with the river levels, something we have no control over. Docks are in approximately mid-June to mid-Sept. The kitchen is not huge, but it's also not really small, a matter or perspective, I suppose. -rkl
It really only sleeps 5-6
Left on 01/13/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | Katwitz
The bedroom was off the garage and was freezing no heat in the basement bedroom or bathroom. The bedding looked and smelled of several stays without be washed. Serveral light bulbs were burnt out so it was a bit dark. The area was beautiful and the house was very nice - we had 7 adults and it was a bit small for that many people, it was coined as comfortable for 8 people. I would recommend this house and other Russian River properties but maybe not in December. :) Read more
We really appreciate the feedback. For some reason the heater had been removed from the downstairs bedroom without our knowledge; it was replaced as soon as we heard it was missing. Wish you had called us as we would have brought heaters to you immediately. And, of course, we replaced the light bulbs. The linens are washed after every booking, and there is a de-humidifier in the downstairs bedroom now to help combat the problem when it's rainy and the room sits for awhile.
