Description

Step back to a simpler, sweeter time at "Back in the Day" - 5 min drive to River!

Back in the Day is a very sweet cabin that has been loved and adored since the early 50's! Generation after generation have called this River original "home."

For those looking for the perfect location for your next "flex-cation," Back in the Day is perfectly equipped for you with fast and reliable WiFi with download speeds of over 100mbps!

Located just outside of the town of Guerneville, Back in the Day offers the convenience of being near town and the Russian River, and the sweetness of being in an established neighborhood with towering redwoods and deer-meandering hillsides.

Wake up to birds singing in the morning, and the frogs and crickets chirping at night will lull you to sleep.

The cabin has a ton of windows giving it that great tree house feeling.

The kitchen is spacious with all of the amenities needed to create a great home-cooked meal. The vintage dinette is perfect for dining, a card game, or maybe a puzzle?

The kitchen opens to the back deck and and outdoor dining area. Watch the deer graze on the hillside as you have your morning coffee. This is where you will also find the propane gas BBQ for grilling up some burgers and dogs for your friends & family!

There is one bright and cheerful bedroom with a comfy queen bed and 1 full bath.

The living room is very large and has a wood burning stove, lots of windows and doors, and windows opening to the large covered porch at the front of the property. There are two sofas in the living room, one of them is a sofa sleeper offering sleeping for 2 of your very favorite people! There is a flat screen TV with Xfinity cable service & DVD player as well!

If you are looking for a clean, quaint and comfortable cabin from which to explore the river, the town of Guerneville, golfing, the Pacific Ocean and local wineries, we invite you to step "Back in the Day."

Time to rekindle some sweet memories of days gone by, and create new memories that will last a life-time!

Place was clean and easy to get to. Rooms open and airy, quiet road, with nice neighbor. Not short walking distance from town, but Redwood trees and sounds of wildlife abound.
Full size bed was tough for 2 large people but adjusting in the space was easy... no two in the shower, but it's got good hear and pressure.
Think you'll be pleased, as we were

We really enjoyed our Russian River experience. The cabin was lovely and really expressed the essence of the Russian River life. The cabin was very clean and had everything you could possibly need. Loved the retro vibe. Wine country to Coast property Management was great to work with and I recommend them.

A terrific location and a charming home. Guerneville is a 20 minute walk away, and we were even able to walk home from the Armstrong Redwood Reserve. We didn't have a car, and Uber and Lyft were unusable; but the local Bill's Taxi is literally next door! They helped us out with our trips.

I was having work done on my home in the East Bay and needed somewhere to stay for a couple weeks. And I needed it to be dog friendly and safe for a single woman. During a pandemic. This turned out to be the perfect solution. It is clean and cozy. It’s situated in a little Guerneville neighborhood with friendly neighbors and has a very nice covered deck and back patio that I would have used a lot more if the weather had been warmer. Would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was absolutely perfect for us and the house is very charming and cozy. Stace ensures you have an amazing stay by providing all the information about the house and area beforehand. It was a breeze to check-in and out. Definitely would come back. (Only note is that there is one bathroom that you access through the bedroom. Wasn't an issue for us but it could be for other people)

This place was just perfect for us, and we had a great visit with our daughter for her graduation present trip. This is her favorite place. Beautiful area, and this home lets you enjoy to the fullest the essence of the nature. Apsoluly stunning views out of the many many windows. We enjoyed the seclusion of the quiet neighborhood, yet thoroughly enjoyed being so close to the river, beach, and quaint little town. When we had questions the help was emediate, the extras were so thoughtful and every request was met with a cheerful hospitality! Thank you so much for a beautiful stay.We will be back!
Bring your furry friends. What a blast!
