I spent hours pouring through all of the possible rentals for our nearly two week stay in Guerneville. With two young children, we really wanted a space that was kid friendly, well-appointed, and in a good location, what we got with Lucky Bend Lookout was beyond our expectations (and I had high expectations from the pictures). First off, the cabin home is completely restored to it’s original Mid-Century glory, with modern updates that made it comfortable and livable for a 21st century family. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed to create home away from home. There are indoor/outdoor eating spaces. The deck overlooks a peaceful stretch of the river, and has been redone to make it modern, and child safe, which created additional space for our family to hang out. There are swings beneath the deck! The cabin is quiet and serene, and only 2 minutes from town. When you book with this family, they email you a packet of pdf’s for planning your visit, including information on farm dinners, local restaurant recommendations with personal reviews, information on which river beaches to go to, local trips, wineries, things to do with kids. It was so well organized, we spent little time planning in advance.
