Think traveling with kids means sacrificing gorgeous, architecturally inspiring accommodations?

Think again. Your kids will feel like woodland creatures—and you’ll feel like a travel-planning wizard—when your family settles into our mid-century modern cabin, tucked into a dense stand of redwoods beside the Russian River in Guerneville. (One ancient redwood has been presiding over our part of the forest for over a thousand years!). A true mid-century modern gem, Lucky Bend Lookout was architect-designed and constructed in 1966, and is now remodeled with plenty of family friendly amenities.

GREAT HIKING WEEKEND We stayed in the cabin for a long weekend of wine tasting and hiking. We have a family of 7 adults and we all fit comfortably with one person on the pull out couch. We loved having a table large enough for the whole family to sit at for dinner and cards.…

RELAXING BACHELORETTE PARTY We stayed here this past weekend for a bachelorette party. Sarah was extremely communicative, answered all of my questions (I had a lot!) in a timely manner, and was very accommodating and friendly.

At night, the huge redwoods are spotlighted. The house is very comfortable, the couches, beds, all new and well done– and…

JUST MY STYLE (AND A GREAT JUMPING OFF POINT FOR THE BEST CYCLING IN SONOMA!) You know those rentals you’ve stayed at before with a bunch of second-rate furniture and schlocky “cabin” decorations?

Location

Guerneville, Sonoma County, California, United States

The Russian River is only about an hour and twenty minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge but do your family a favor and take all day with one of these road trip options.

Lucky Bend Lookout is only a 20 minute walk or a 6 minute bike ride to downtown Guerneville. Guerneville is located right on the Russian River and is centrally located between the Russian River AVA, the Dry Creek AVA, and Sonoma Coast State Beach. It is perfect home base for exploring all the great activities that Western Sonoma County has to offer. Check out our post on the perfect way to spend a day or two in Guerneville. While most people think of the Russian River for tubing in the summer, fall and winter are also great but with far fewer crowds.
