Beautiful, Peaceful and Tranquil...A place to get away from it all.
Truly enjoyed the "Artist's Retreat." Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful comfortable are just a few descriptors. Grilled some local salmon on the grill while enjoying the view from the deck. The hot tub was a nice touch especially with the full moon lighting up the forest. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well the 2 nights we were there. During our stay we took a morning trip to Bodega Bay and ate lunch at Spud Point Crab Company. We enjoyed a walk to the beach at Stillwater Cove and a wonderful susnset at the Timbercove Inn. Unfortunately we only had 2 days to enjoy the retreat. We love Northern California and there are many things we still want to see and experience. When we return we will come back to stay at the Artisit's Retreat if available. Thanks for sharing your piece of peace on earth Richard. Tom and Renee (Minnesota)
Lovely weekend in celebration of our 46th wedding anniversary.
The Artist Retreat is a beautiful place nestled in the woods. It was spotless. The kitchen had ample room for foood prep and cooking. However, being an iconic couple, the stairs to the upstairs bedroom proved a bit challenging. Didn't find the living space "cozy." Small loveseat didn't accomodate two people comfortably. Grateful for the experience though.
Everything about our stay at the Artists Retreat was perfect. Very private, we enjoyed just sitting on the sun drenched back deck in the morning listening to nature and soaking in the sparkling clean hot tub at night under the stars. This is also the first stay we didn't feel compelled to use bedding from home. There was firewood for the outdoor firepit or fireplace and charcoal for the grill as well. There were movies and games, Roku, lounge chairs, music, plenty of towels, shampoo & soap, and very well stocked kitchen with enough sugar for months of coffee, plus a drip coffee pot and I thought I saw a bean grinder too. There was a toaster, electric water pot, plenty of cookware, dishes, and utensils, and even a dishwasher (YAY, lol). We spent our days driving from one cove beach trail to another and sampling the local fare. It was an absolutely perfect stay for two people and four nights here left us both feeling completely rejuvenated. Will definitely book again if/when we come back to the area.
Nice relaxing vacation
Very nice relaxing place. House is very nice and well equipped. Could use a comfortable chair for living area as only one 2 person mini loveseat that’s very uncomfortable otherwise you can sit in wooden chairs at table. King size bed is very comfortable. Tvs look good but didn’t use. Outdoor area very nice. Beautiful redwood forest. Nail heads in deck sticking up and could use pounded in for safety. Hot tub is really nice for relaxing. WiFi worked great owner is very good to communicate with. I would return.
I loved the property and Russell made the overall process very quick and easy. Thanks again!
