Convenient older farm house close into Boonville
Great location (easy to walk to town), but just as peaceful from being just down the block, and great to listen to nature. We found the bed comfortable, and the layout great for our needs. It is in need of a cleaning (did have the appearance that it had not been rented for a while - needs a good spring cleaning). As well, there was evidence of a bit of a mouse issue (especially in the hall bath vanity), and the kitchen ware had not been cleaned well in a while (we had to wash quite a bit of stuff just to be able to use, including a slight growth in the coffee maker).
That being said, we think this property has a lot to offer, and is a good value. A detailed cleaning would really put this as the place to stay in Anderson Valley
Do Not Stay Here
I have been trying to get my money back for 2 months. The property owner specifically asked me to cancel my booking and when I did they never refunded my money. I have called and emailed multiple times and have heard nothing.
Nice little place in Anderson Valley.
Great little house conveniently located near Pinot tasting. Beautiful yard and setting, however could use better cleaning. Beds were clean and comfortable, but stove burners and shower interiors could use a good scrubbing, and dusting of all the cobwebs. Overall great place with plenty of room.
The house and cottages were perfect for our family. Our son was getting married in Boonville and the farm house and cottages were cozy and comfortable for our immediate family. The owner and caretaker were both very helpful and pleasant to work with. The house and cottages were very clean and well kept. Very quiet and walking distance to everything in Boonville and a short drive to hiking in Hendy Park or wine tasting in the local wineries. The house and cottages had everything needed for cooking and comfort. Air and or heat, everything worked perfect. The added bonus of the lovely surroundings made the weekend very enjoyable.
Sweet little home away from home
We've stayed at Redwood Rest several times before and this time, like all the others, was simply delightful. The house is perfectly located in Boonville such that you can walk to the County Fair and anywhere else in town, which is what we did on this trip. If you want to explore Anderson Valley, again you are in an ideal location. We always feel right at home in this comfy, rustic house. We found a nice bottle of pinot noir waiting for us when we entered the house. Everything was clean and tidy and just the way we remembered it. The one change that we noticed was that the twin beds were moved from one of the back bedrooms to the one off the dinning room, which was a great idea. If you are two couples, staying in the back bedrooms means you each have your own attached bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped, including coffee. We made our breakfast at the house and went out for lunches and dinners. There are some nice restaurants in easy walking distance. The beds are clean and comfy, and the two back bedrooms each have their own bath, which is really nice. We used the dinning room for meals as well as for playing cards and working a puzzle. If it's hot, you've got A/C and if its cold, you've got plenty of heaters. This trip we didn't need either. We spent our evenings chatting in the living room, which has plenty of comfy seating and a nice collection of magazines. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio and listened to the birds in the dappled sunlight under the giant redwood tree. Such a relaxing spot. It is great to have parking right in front of the house, especially when there's a big event like the county fair going on. Since we were spending our days at the fair and didn't want to head out right at noon, I contacted Shane, the caretaker, and he allowed us to have access to the house until 2:00. That really allowed us to relax and enjoy our last day in town. Thank you, Matt & Dixie for making your lovely home available for our adventures in Boonville. When the VRBO website mishandled the billing calculations, you were quick to figure out what went wrong and make things right. Easy and speedy communication made the booking problem disappear. We look forward to our next stay at Redwood Rest.
There’s a problem with this reservation
I didn’t stay. In fact, I canceled the reservation on June 24, 60 days prior to the date of the stay. But VRBO and the property owner have refused to refund my deposit, while belatedly acknowledging receipt of the cancellation. There is a serious problem with your customer service and business integrity, and I will never do business with VRBO again.
