“Big, Private home nestled in the forest”
Reviewed November 14, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Stayed at the Hummingbird House with 2 other couples and the place was a great little retreat in the Russian River Valley. Very private - you can't see any other houses from the decks, and the property is fantastic - surrounded by trees, misty mornings on the deck were great. Layout is also perfect for big groups, where each room is on basically its own level. The management company is also responsive and getting in was a breeze. They get dinged one star for the lack of some basic amenities like kitchen sponges, etc - and the coffee machine did not work, but those are fixable and did not impact us too much.

“Lovely, private vacation rental in a beautiful location!”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at The Hummingbird House over a holiday weekend with six adults. It was great for our needs- spacious, comfortable, dog friendly, and perfectly located near the river access for a day of tubing. The house itself is well set-up, with the living and dining areas upstairs, and then with the three bedrooms on the lower two floors. We loved that there were four bathrooms, and three large decks which provided plenty of privacy for everyone, and lots of lounging space. The home is tastefully decorated, but still cozy enough that it feels comfortable and easy to kick back and relax without worrying about ruining furniture or keeping everything it its exact spot.

The only thing to note is that the large, private yard is on a sloping hill, so not ideal for playing lawn sports if that was your intention. Also, while dog friendly, it is not fenced in (which is clearly noted on the website, so we were prepared, but good to remind other dog owners) and pretty close to the road, so you'd want to make sure you have your dog under voice command or that he/she isn't a wanderer. Other than that, a dishwasher would make the rental even better, but wasn't a deal breaker for us.

Thanks for the lovely stay!

Hello!

Thanks for the very thoughtful review! We love Hummingbird House!!! And so do guests - consistently! I'm not sure if the septic system can manage the addition of a dishwasher, but I'm passing the recommendation along. I hope we'll see you again!

“Amazing Value and Location”
Reviewed December 27, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Loved the privacy, view, and location of this property. All three bedrooms were cozy and quiet! Would have loved more abundant and comfortable seating (couch) in the main living area. We used the hot tub every night! So much to do near this home- wine, great hikes, and lovely small towns. We spent our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day here- it was a great holiday and cooked every meal in the house. It felt very much like home and we would love to return sometime.

“Great house, great views, wonderful location!”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a great place to stay while exploring the Russian River Valley and Sonoma wine country! It's a lovely quiet, peaceful spot set among the redwoods with a multitude of decks. The house is well equipped and well maintained. We mainly ate out (plenty of places near by) but the kitchen has all you would need to cook with the area's superb local ingredients. Highlights were having breakfast and coffee on the top deck and enjoying the hot tub at the end of a long day of hiking and wine tasting. It even has a great sound system with a collection of vinyl records which we finally tried out on our last day. Oh well, we will just have to come back.

Hello!
And we'd love to have you back to explore more too! The owners have done an amazing job with the decks (several are new this past year) and really showing off the best views! Hummingbird House is such a cool place and well located for finding all the best wineries, breweries, hiking, foodie spots and so many more places to get a feel for West Sonoma County or just stay put.

“A great escape on a great escape vacation.”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This property is well maintained, and the staff do a great job to make sure all needs are covered. My wife and I were travelling with 2 other couples (with whom we had not traveled before) and the communal spaces and the personal spaces really enhanced our experience. We were able to be together, and when it was time...be apart as well. The location was ideal for our exploration of the Sonoma area, and it was a nice respite to escape to when the evening drew. Decks, patios, hottub, grassy areas all provided nice settings to relax or be festive with our friends. The rooms were well-stocked, including the kitchen. The management crew were unfailingly polite, helpful, and professional. An unequivocal recommendation to others, and we hope to return as well. Oh...and we thought it was a bargain!

Hello and thank you for the very kind words!

Guests love Hummingbird House and we do too! It's great for traveling with friends or family - plenty of places to be together or apart, lots of privacy and separate bathrooms. You can even all hang out on different decks if you have varying sun bathing needs.

I hope we'll see you again soon!

“Space for everyone! Beautiful woods, good hot tub and patios!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I recommend this place for a family reunion, little weddings, bday celebrations. We stayed here with my husband and my parents.

The place is clean and the beds are comfortable with good sheets and bedding! The kitchen is comfortable and has everything for cooking: pans, pots, knives, cutting boards and more! The office is very cozy and the fireplace is perfect. It was warm, clean and nice!

The house is big and conveniently located close to the wineries, restaurant, grocery store. If I was the owner of this place I would paint the living room-kitchen area-it does need it.(scratches, dirt on the walls) I would use a warm beige color to make it cozy and soft. I really loved the natural touches as wood furniture (woven chairs, seating, benches, rugs). There were 5 of us and it felt like we needed more toilet paper and paper towels in the kitchen. There was only half of paper towel in the kitchen, half of toilet paper in each bathrooms. We bought some on our own and the problem was fixed. The laundry was a great plus and we loved it. The detergent was not provided although it was mentioned in the contract. And there is no dishwasher. So if you are ready to wash the dishes then it's okay. We did not mind washing the dishes but missed the dishwasher!

We slept really well in the woods in this beautiful house! I would recommend this place to my friends!
