Storybook Cottage in the Heart of Guernewood
Guerneville was originally the home of the Kashaya Native Americans. At the turn of the 19th century Russian settlers came to grow food and collect pelts to send back to their colony in Alaska. In the mid 1800s American settlers arrived and began logging the Redwood forest. The major boom of the logging industry occurred between 1870 and 1910, giving Guerneville it’s nickname of “Stumptown”. Colonel James Armstrong soon came to the rescue of the giant Redwoods, preserving them and creating Armstrong Woods. Soon the railroads came to the area carrying vacationers from San Francisco and other areas, making vacationing and tourism the major business for the Russian River and Guerneville from 1920 to about 1935. This home was built at the tail end of the Great Depression, in 1939, as the country began to rebound.
Accurately nicknamed “Jelly’s Creekside Cottage” this storybook home in the woods of Guerneville is really a treasure to behold. From its traditional cottage layout and design, to its recent upgrades and nearly new condition it is the perfect getaway or permanent forever home. Picture yourself resting on the porch looking out towards the Redwoods or relaxing in the hot tub whilst listening to the birds. Enjoy evenings cozying up by the fireplace or enjoying mornings with breakfast at the kitchen counter. With the two ample bedrooms and two full bathrooms there is both room for privacy and room for guests. This home has made for a successful short-term rental but could also be a wonderful place to call home.
