ENJOY...a fabulous vacation with old man river, at the RiverHouse, where the Redwoods meet the Russian River. With direct river access and its own private beach, this very special riverfront home is located just minutes from downtown Healdsburg, yet a world away, nestled on a wooded knoll on North Fitch Mountain, safely above the river.
The RiverHouse is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, newly renovated home, inside and out, accommodating up to 8 guests and is child friendly (small lapdogs will be considered). This lovely cottage also has central heat, a wall-mounted 42' flatscreen Plasma TV with cable, A/C, and hardwood oak flooring.

The kitchen and dining room with a fan/light combo over the table, are bright and airy with a skylight, river views, and a new slider, opening to the patio with stainless steel BBQ, and river deck. Fully equipped for your cooking enjoyment, the kitchen has a gas range/oven, microwave, dishwasher, new pots and pans, dishes, glassware, flatware, blender, toaster, coffeemaker and grinder, pantry essentials, and more. The 3 bedrooms are appointed with queen beds, new luscious linens, pillows and bedding, clock/CD players and end tables with lamps.

This special, redwood fenced property is private and serene, with a new double carport inside the fence, which can also be used as a shaded sitting and/or play area. Abundant outdoor amenities include beautiful landscaping, and a redwood deck with jetted spa under the mature Redwoods, overlooking the river.

COME FOR A MAGICAL GATHERING 'DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE', ENJOY THIS UNIQUELY PEACEFUL RIVER EXPERIENCE, AND REVEL IN THE BEAUTY OF NATURE!!!
The back deck on this house is what made it so special to us! And the fireplace! The back deck and jacuzzi directly overlook the Russian River and it was decadent to be able to sit outside in April and enjoy the beauty of the River (despite a few pesky mosquitos this time of year -- so remember to bring bug spray)! Having a place like this to come home to after wine tasting all day was a highlight of our amazing long weekend in Healdsburg! Loved the home and will book it again!
We have just finished a wonderful stay at the Riverhouse in the Redwoods. This is a home, not a cabin - with all amenities you could wish for. Clean and lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, with a well laid out kitchen. We had children, also one person with a walker and all were able to use the home with ease.
There are many delightful distractions in the town of Healdsburg; restaurants (don't miss Willie's or Wurst), antique shopping, wineries, biking etc. The children especially loved coming back and swimming at our own little beach and also up at Eagle Rock, however......you could not pry me off that deck. To sit there in the shade of the trees, watching the River flow by, listening to the wind...pure bliss.
Great stay, can't wait to go back!
The 'Riverhouse in the Redwoods' was absolutely as promised! Location was easy to find and secluded while being very close to downtown (5 minute drive). Property came fully stocked with anything we could have needed including towels, toiletries, a kayak to enjoy the river, paper products - all we had to do was bring some food and our personal items. Property managers are very easy to communicate with and great at answer questions. Perfect house if you're looking to spend some quite relaxing time on/near the water up in Healdsburg.
thank you for a wonderful weekend! The cottage is lovely. Had a great time on the river, in the river and watching the river go by from the deck. This is our third rental on the River and by far the best! Would recommend it over any of the other two we have tried!
The owner was great to deal with. Everything went smoothly. House was just as lovely as in the photos, clean and had everything we could possibly need. We had three generations and all of us loved the entire experience and can't wait to go back!
We stayed at the Riverhouse over the July 4th weekend and couldn't have had a better time. The location is great, just a 10 minute drive from the center of Healdsburg but feels very secluded, and the house itself comfortably slept our 8 guests. What really made the weekend though, was the river. We spent every day down on the private beach, using the kayak out on the water and watching the endless groups of people float past us. In the evenings, we moved the party back up the hottub, by the grill. Overall, it was a great weekend - highly recommend the Riverhouse for anyone looking to get away for a weekend or longer, especially given its proximity to the center of town and the rest of wine country.
Tips: bring inner tubes and other things you want to use in the river (balls, rafts, etc); make sure to obtain the code for the padlock on the kayak from the owners; bring food to grill; it can be a little tough to find the first time but google maps will get you there; the phone signal at the house is adequate but a little weak, so bring a charger as your battery drains more quickly than usual; the house has wireless which is plenty fast for email and online downloads.
If you think Sonoma wine country is open sunny expanses of meadows and vineyards, you've not seen the best part of Sonoma. It can be a heavenly wooded paradise.
Just returned from one week at the Riverhouse June 2011. The pictures do not do justice to the property. First of all, it is in a redwood grove directly on the banks of the Russian River. When sitting on the outdoor deck in the back, you overlook the river, and enjoy the cool shade of the redwoods. We even saw river otters and deer. Walk down a rustic stone staircase directly to the water's edge, There's e kayak, gas grill, outdoor hot tub, indoor jacussi, flat-screen cable TV, and the well-stocked kitchen and paper supplies. The house is clean, the furniture is OK.
There is fresh basel and mint in the garden. One bedroom has a powerful room air-conditioner, although in June the temp drops to the 60's at night. We ate all our meals on the deck, beneath the trees overlooking the river. Take a long walk down Redwood Drive, it is quiet and completely sheltered by trees.
The agents could not have been more cooperative. One night at 10 PM we blew out a fuse using the hair dryer and could not find the circuit board anywhere. The handyman arrived in 15 minutes to fix it. While there, he gave us lots of good hiking and shopping tips.
Here are a few... we wanted shady, cool, redwood forest hikes. Armstrong state park was excellent, combined with visit to Guernsville and a drive out to Jenner... the outlet of the Russian River... very pretty.
Drive the Westlake road to get there. It is a beautiful country road passing about 5 vineyards and through multiple redwood groves. The other hike was Annadale Park, also a shady, redwood forest. Neither too difficult but aerobic nonetheless.
One of the best tips was Big John's Market, about a 5 minute drive from the house. Fresh organic veggies and meat department... prime cuts and lots of specialty items. Dining is great is Healdsburg. There is Cyrus a 2 star Michelin 3 hour experience that is unforgettable and expensive. You'll need to reserve weeks in advance. Also try Ravenous which is excellent and has an outdoor dining area in the back. Previous visits to Healdsburg we ate at Dry Creek kitchen and thought it was over-rated.
One negative -- The house has three bedrooms, but the largest bedroom has the toilet and sink in the room itself. On the plus side, that same bedroom contains the jacussi
