My husband and I had a wonderful time at Lucky Bend Lookout. The deck in the morning looking out on the Russian River, birds singing, ducks landing– was amazing. At night, the huge redwoods are spotlighted. The house is very comfortable, the couches, beds, all new and well done– and I was 7 months pregnant at the time, so I’m a harsh critic! It was so easy to stay at Lucky Bend, all of the appliances and amenities are user friendly and labeled for ease of access. This would be a great place to come with kids and/or another couple as well, since there’s plenty of space. Nearby attractions include hiking in redwoods, trips to the beach– plenty to do or just relax. We can’t wait to come back!
