When it comes to finding a weekend escape in California, I look no further than Airbnb. One of my favorite things to do is to go for “a scroll” through listings to save for future stays (like this extensive list of California Airbnbs). When I came across this one, it went to my “need to stay ASAP” board, it was that good.

Located in the Russian River redwoods and near the quaint town of Cazadero, The Caz Cabin Project is a serene getaway. It’s an a-frame that has been reimagined by the founder of Studio PLOW, a San Francisco-based architecture and design studio, alongside her partner who is an architect. The finished work? A perfectly designed space that is right out of a magazine.

Tucked off of the Cazadero Highway and adjacent to a running creek, this modern yet cozy Airbnb is set with a wood-burning stove and a large patio space. Summer months and warmer weather promises outdoor dining and nights around the fire-pit. During the colder months, nothing beats snuggling up on the plush couch with a crackling fire.

With just two nights at the Caz Cabin, I was itching to stay longer. It was the perfect reset amidst times where it feels impossible to quiet the noise. We certainly will be returning, perhaps next time with some friends. Here’s a look at the stay at the Caz Cabin, and be sure to book in advance, their calendar is already quite full.

Inside the Airbnb

Centered around the black, stone-tiled hearth with a wood-burning fire stove, the a-frame boasts tall ceilings. The living room is corned with plush Solae couches by Article and one beautifully-designed wooden round coffee table. With tall windows and a sliding glass door, the natural light pours in illuminating the space.

The kitchen is optimized with Fisher & Paykel appliances and set with black steel counter tops. It’s a beautiful blend of moody and modern, especially when contrasted with the oak floors. In the center, the marble table (sourced via Craigslist), is the main center attention with its mesmerizing veining and pop of coral pink tones. And just above, a Flos Aim light that lights up the space.

Upstairs, the loft-style bedroom set with a king-size bed embodies all that Scandinavian design is. A swinging hammock, extra linens, stacked books, and an additional lounge couch finished the space. And of course, you can’t miss those sconces by Wo and Wé, the same maker of the sconces in the second bedroom and adjacent to the fireplace.

Downstairs, a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom awaits and a second bathroom at the end of the hallway. It’s everything you need for a cozy stay.


Things to Do Nearby

Between the coastal town of Jenner and the town of Guerneville along the Russian River, the cabin is well situated to explore both areas. Around two hours from San Francisco, there are quite a few things to do. This blog post has all of my top suggestions for this part of the California coast from Bodega Bay to Sea Ranch which is within driving distance of Cazadero.

Things to do:

  • Float down the Russian River
  • Explore the town of Occidental and Freestone. Wild Flour Bakery is our favorite in this area (cash-only) and we love Freestone Artisan Cheese.
  • Drive out to Jenner and rent kayaks at Watertreks.
  • Head up the coast to Timber Cove, stop for a meal at Timber Cove Hotel.
  • Explore downtown Guerneville.
  • Hike in the redwoods at Armstrong Redwoods.
  • Head down to Bodega Bay for fresh crab, we love Spud Point.

Dining:

  • Brot
  • El Barrio
  • The taco truck in the Safeway Parking lot (SO good)
  • Timber Cove Resort

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:

      I spoke to the owners, the listing has been temporarily removed and should be back up soon again. I’d recommend checking in the next week or so. Alternatively, could reach out on their IG channel @cazcabinproject for the latest update.

      Thanks!

  2. Hi.

    Love this cabin and I’m planning a trip to the area in a month.
    The link to Airbnb doesn’t seem to work and I could not find it in my search of the area. Do you know how I could contact the owners/managers to do a booking?

    Thank you SO much!

    Love your page!
