“Hidden Paradise!”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here for three days with my friends, and we had a lovely time! Even on a day with patchy rain, we had several relaxing spots where we could sit inside or outside and enjoy the view of the woods and creek. Sunny days were spent sitting by the creek enjoying the sounds of gurgling water. The house is very charming, nicely decorated, and spacious. The hot tub and gas BBQ were icing on the cake. It also sits at the end of a private road, so there is a feeling of really being away from it all. Cazadero is a sweet, more remote area near a bustling resort town, so you have access to the Russian River and shops, restaurants, etc, while feeling like you are way out in the middle of nowhere.

Thank you!
I think you said it perfectly! Glen Tara is a hidden paradise in Cazadero - so close to Raymond's Bakery for enchanting treats and Friday Night Music and Pizza! Thank you for sharing!

“Nice Place”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Nice place. Has everything you need for a vacation. In the middle of trees including redwoods. House is old (floor has small slant) but has lots of character. Laundry definitely a plus, as is the spa. Nice kitchen and a dining (and patio) table that seats 6! Walking distance to Cazadero (Raymonds) Bakery. Be sure to go for pizza on Friday night!

“Almost camping”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

i brought my father to this vacation rental because he still wanted the feeling of camping but doesn't have an rv anymore. This place was perfect. Nestled in the woods with a stream all thought not running at this point due to the lack of water. It was most of the benefits of camping he was looking for with out the hastle. We were comfortable at this home. We did bring fans as we knew it would be warm and doesn't have air conditioning as we are used to. The place was nicely located so we could take day trips to the beach or guerneville easily. Dad even mentioned it might be nice to do a holiday there. So over all we were very happy. We also would come back again.

Liked best: That it was tucked into the woods with a stream and of course the hot tub.
Liked least: That the water was icky due to drought and we could not get in it.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Glen Tara! People often seem surprised when we tell them it's possible to swim in the creek.We don't have any notes about downstairs shower, so perhaps this was a temporary decrease in water pressure? The downstairs bathroom is on schedule to be remodeled this winter - what a great reason to come stay with us again and check it out!

Hello!
Thank you for sharing a review of Glen Tara! It's a great property and the owners have done great work over the last couple years remodeling and updating the amenities... And we all love Raymond's Bakery, but wished they wouldn't close during the winter!

For folks staying in any of our Cazadero homes, it's good to note that there is a small-ish general store, post office and hardware/automotive shop in the town of Cazadero - and Raymond's Bakery a smidge closer to Hwy 116. Monte Rio and Guerneville a a longer drive for more shopping and supplies. Duncan's Mills is 5 to 10 minutes away and has some shops too... Most folks stock up on their way to the house and hide from the world! If you love being away from it all...

And a quick correction - the former co-owners of Glen Tara live on the same street as weekend/vacation visitors. You don't have to worry that someone's watching your every move! Enjoy - relax - chill in the woods!

Hello!

All that work to good use... The owners of Glen Tara have done some fantastic remodeling each year to make the house an awesome get away! This year included walling-in the third bedroom, more kitchen goodness and updates throughout the house. We think they are doing a great job and it sounds like yo agree!
