ROMANTIC STUDIO COTTAGE FOR 2! PRIVATE SPA, HOTEL AMENITIES!

Monte Rio Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Monte Rio Vacation Cottages, 3 levels of Luxury, you chose!

The Hummingbird Cottage is a 256 sq ft studio cottage. It is a small yet wonderfully bright and cozy, well designed, with a fully equipped kitchen and an enormous wrap-around deck.

The generously large deck, crafted from the massive redwoods that tower lovingly over Monte Rio, is furnished with lounge chairs and dining tables, and is fenced in for the private enjoyment of the luxurious Sundance massage spa.

The Hummingbird is overflowing with charm.

Gorgeous top-quality bedding and linens adorn the comfortable queen sized bed. The French doors are trimmed with lace curtains and let in just the right amount of sun. Quaint artwork and accents liven the interior throughout.

This one-of-a- kind space is ideal for couples, small families or an indulgent, relaxing solo escape.

All of the cottages have their own private fenced yards, hot tubs, gas grills, fully equipped granite-counter kitchens, gas or electric fireplaces, DirecTV, WiFi, premium quality linens and robes, complimentary toiletries, paper products and coffee service.

All guests have use of the common areas. The picturesque, fenced, half-acre compound of Monte Rio Vacation Cottages has open space, with multiple dining areas, a fire ring, seasonal fruit trees, berries and vegetable garden. It is designed with guest privacy in mind, yet also offering plenty of communal gathering space.

Our cottages are separated by privacy, redwood fences with gates that may be closed and locked, or open for the communal use of your group.

Two beautiful old restaurants, The Village Inn and The Highland Dell, with quiet, comfortable bars, that overlook the river, are a short 1/2 block walk away.

The Russian River, Monte Rio Beach, for fishing, seasonal sunbathing and canoeing, and year-round riverside campfires, is a short 5 block walk or drive.

We had our eyes on these quaint little cottages for years, and had always dreamed of one day owning them. Time passed, and the cottages fell into disrepair by the previous owner, so we purchased remodeled and refurbished the entire grounds, giving each villa the wonderful little touches we ourselves would look for in a vacation spot. It's been a true labor of love. Now we have the pleasure of sharing our places with people who are making memories. It is most rewarding to read the guest book after our tenants have gone. So far, every entry has been positive!

Nancy McGauley purchased this cottage in 2007

We have lovingly remodeled and refurbished these cottages to capture that wonderful, 'vacation on the river' feel. We have lived across the street from the cottages for the past 11 years, and it still feels like we are on vacation her. We hope you'll enjoy Monte Rio, the Russian River and Monte Rio Cottages as much as we do!

Our cottages are newly renovated and beautiful! We are in a redwood forest; a wooded setting, yet it is sunny all day at the cottages. The little 1/2 acre compound is fenced, and we have a wonderful common area, with a nice fire pit for evening campfires. We have a great location...15 minutes from the coast, in the middle of the California Wine Country, 5 blocks from the public beach, on the Russian River, 1/2 block from a safe, beautiful bar and restaurant that overlooks the river and we are in the Redwoods! We are 5 minutes from Northwoods Golf Course. (It was designed by Alister MacKenzie, who also designed Pebble Beach.)

Monte Rio is known as 'Vacation Wonderland'!

We located only 1/2 block from the famous 'Village Inn' and 1-1/2 blocks from the 'HIghland Dell'. Both of these lovely hotels have very interesting histories, first class restaurants and wonderfully comfortable bars that overlook the Russian River. It is a nice option, while staying at our cottages, to have the luxury of a great meal at either of these fine inns.
