About this listing

This is the romantic getaway you've always dreamed of. Built as a studio by a famous cartoonist for seclusion and privacy, you'll find yourself nestled amongst the redwoods and vineyards of the Russian River Valley wine country. Whether on your honeymoon or just looking to get away from it all, you're promised to have a unique experience.

The space

Originally built in the 1960's as a private drawing studio, experience where one of the world's most iconic comic strips was drawn. With its own private four-hole golf course, our oasis in the woods puts you in the middle of all that Northern California has to offer. Just 10 minutes outside the town of Sebastopol and only an hour north of San Francisco, you'll be secluded without being out of touch. Nearby locations include the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, the Russian River, beautiful forests of coastal redwoods, and a myriad of little towns and backroads to explore in between. The area boasts some of the best hiking and biking trails in the country. Small towns and communities offer everything from the quaint and quirky, to a multitude of first-class restaurants and one-of-a-kind shopping.

However, you may find that a weekend in is exactly what you are looking for. Light a fire, cozy up with a glass of wine, and never leave the confines of your new home away from home. Accommodations are limited to 1-2 people; the studio is a one-bedroom with a California King bed, 1 1/2 baths, full-size kitchen with modern appliances, living room with a stone fireplace, WiFi, flat screen TVs, outdoor grill, covered car port, and washer/dryer. Throughout the house you will find large windows and skylights. The bedroom overlooks a deck with covered seating on one side, and a fish pond and waterfall on the other.

For over 30 years our family and friends have found much happiness here, and we know you will too.

Guest access

Upon entering the grounds on it's own private road, you're free to relax and explore the entire property. We have ten acres, four of which feature a four-hole golf course. Rumor has it a few of Hollywood's past great celebrities have played here as guests. Enjoy the beauty and serenity of the redwood forest that runs on the other half of the property.

Wild life abounds. It is common to see deer and a myriad of other animals including the occasional peacock wandering about. The spring and summer seasons bring butterflies and a variety of birds. Take a short hike through redwoods and open areas of the property; sitting benches and a hammock allow you to lay back and enjoy the scenery. Pick fresh fruit from a variety of trees on the grounds - apples, lemons, plums, apricots, cherries and more. Some guests have even been known to create wonderful edibles in our kitchen.

Interaction with guests

To keep the property to a high standard a groundskeeper can be present to perform general maintenance. We always attempt to work around guest stays to maximize privacy but on the occasions where its necessary we are happy to coordinate to assure the work is done when guests are away from the grounds.

Check in is 2PM. Checkout is 11AM.

This place is magical. Can't wait to return. It was wonderful to wander the grounds with grandchildren then have lovely quiet time when they went home. Beautiful and our hosts were so thoughtful with their amenities. Just perfect.

My husband and I travel frequently and found Eric's home to be very unique and special. From the history of the home, the connection of the home to its ample, lushly landscaped land to Eric's hospitality -- this place leaves you wanting for nothing -- other than never wanting to leave. We can't wait to come back!

The studio was absolutely beautiful and Eric, the host, could not have been more responsive. It was a lovely, secluded place that was perfect for a weekend away.

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. The house was charming and cozy (especially with the lovely welcome basket that Dana left us!), but also impeccably neat. There was thought put into every last detail of our experience, and the house and gardens were simply beautiful. Dana was extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. We love Sebastopol, so the location was perfect. Can't wait to come back!

I could write a novel about how amazing this place and its host were. From the second we arrived on the property we knew this was the perfect place to spend our wedding weekend. The grounds are absolutely stunning, from the little waterfall to the cozy hammock and amazing deck, so we were already sold there. We get to the door and we see a personalized chalkboard sign, a welcome basket full of goodies, and a wedding card. Dana and Eric could not have been more welcoming and made us feel so at home. The kitchen was beautifully decorated and was fully stocked, with all modern appliances. The living room was amazing and cozy with a fireplace and large flatscreen TV. The bedroom was gorgeous with cute historical information and photos, plenty of space, and another large flatscreen. I could have spent all three days in the super comfy King sized bed. This was the first time in my life that I was absolutely blown away by how much the pictures don't do this place justice. At the end of vacations, I'm normally just a little bit happy to go home, but I was genuinely sad to leave. It was worth every penny and I already can't wait to come back!

The stay at the "studio" exceeded every expectation we had, from the beautiful outdoor terraces and fairways to the wonderfully done interior, this location will be one you will never forget. This place is ideal for couples and/or friends looking to unwind, cook and eat outdoors and take in one of the most beautiful areas in California. Dana was a wonderful host - available on short notice via text and/or phone. You will wont for not at the studio and want to come back!

This cottage far exceeded our expectations. From the thoughtful and personalized welcome basket/fresh flowers, to the fully stocked kitchen, impeccably "Charlie Brown"-inspired decorative touches, super luxe king-sized bed and the expansive groomed grounds...this is true gem of a place. The hosts were most generous with all the amenities that we truly felt we were staying at "Uncle Charles Schulz's" cottage studio for the long weekend. For any couple that is looking for a retreat, you will not be disappointed. The photos do not do this place justice. Truly an "at least once in a lifetime" experience. Already looking for another excuse/reason to come back :-).
