Russell's place is fabulous. The day and night vistas from the living room are spectacular. Russell was extremely accommodating for our late check-in and gave us extra time to check out the next day. We were 3 families and had a choice of multiple rooms and bathrooms (for the mor…

This place had spectacular views and the host was very easy to communicate with. The host was gracious in letting us hold a small rehearsal dinner for my sisters wedding that weekend. The house was well stocked with all the supplies necessary. My only critique would be that due …

Thanks for your gracious comments. I will reach out to you and get a list of the small fixes. An extra set of eyes is always needed in making sure everything in a 01,000 sq ft 15 acre property is well maintained.

Russell’s place is an amazing find!! Plenty of room for everyone in a very cool house!! The patio has an amazing view! It’s a little confusing to get to but all my guests were able to find it without too much trouble and Russell left very clear directions to help with that. He h…

Point noted. Late arrivals in the afternoon do get the afternoon sun in 2 of the bedrooms. Housekeeping staff f had been instructed to leave the curtains open to maximize the light and views. However, this can make the rooms warm as summer has arrived. They have since been instructed to draw on est of the curtains to better cool the room. Blinds have been ordered and window film is being installed in those 2 rooms. The other rooms already have the tint installed. Glad to offer the improvement.

This 10,000 sq ft house built in 1949 on top of a hill is a hidden gem. Russ, the co-owner is in the middle of renovating the property and has a great vision for what it will look like in the future. There were nine of us staying over the weekend and we had a wonderful time of fe…

From Alex: Thank you Russ for your hospitality; especially for lending us your laptop so we could watch our movies. We hope to make visiting your property an annual tradition on the second weekend of June. It'll be fascinating to see the house morph each year into your vision. Glad to have hosted. Many continued improvements and upgrades planned. All to make the house even more comfortable for small groups.

The place is (Website hidden by Airbnb) spacious and bright! But please note the place is still going under renovation. It also has some interesting decors/details in some rooms.... which freaked some of my superstitious friends out. But that gave our group plenty to talk about. …

Thanks Linda. Glad that your guests enjoyed the house, I have traveled extensively and always find odd cultural icons and images in my travels. I always have told guests to make this home their own during their stay. Some find it unusual that I have an appreciation for the diversity of spiritual beliefs. None are meant to do anything more than spark a discussion. The property is very prominent in its superior placement above the entire valley. It was sacred American Indian land in its early history. I have hosted spiritual retreats here. Most find great peace .
