TREEFROG RIVER HOUSE

Monte Rio House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Treefrogriverhouse (21590 Moscow road) is a delightful river house oasis, children and pets can enjoy the one-acre garden and play in the river while you entertain in the shade of the majestic towering redwoods or just read a good book on one of the sun decks overlooking the lazy river.

This house has a gated private riverfront path to the Russian river in Monte Rio, just 25 feet from the lower deck is the entrance to the winding steps down a very gradual slope to the water. The property is fenced but we recommend keeping dogs within sight at all times, we recently added a seperate stairway from the lower deck down to a 15x15 dog pen in the garden and made it secure so that our 3 pound puppy (Max) can't climb through any of the gaps in the deck railing or escape from the garden dog pen and they won't be able to chase the ducks down the river while your in the house.

Contact the owner for maps of the area, top view of the property and river level information. Guest’s can use any of the boats and life safety vests that Treefrog supplies. 2 single person ocean kayaks, 1 two-person ocean kayak and one 3-4-person canoe are included with the rental. Boat use is restricted in the high water winter months, usually between November and April.

On 4th of July weekend enjoy Monte Rio’s fireworks in privacy from the hot tub, BBQ area and spacious lawn; view the activities at the public beach from the river island or walk there in 10 minutes. Even though the public beach is nearby on the other side of the river you will have complete privacy because the Treefrog property is secluded enough that you seldom hear noise from the beach or other houses. Some of the restaurants on the river have live music and you can walk to them in ten minutes.

The riverside of the property is very private and all of the homes in the area are very well kept,

there are no houses on the right side of the house for half a mile and the closest house on the left is called Riverwood Cottage, about 150 feet away.

For availability please check the calendar at the top of this page. Reservations are confirmed within 24 hours. Please contact the owner for reservations by email by clicking the button on the right and include your phone number.

Wine tasting is nearby at the Martinelli winery on the way north east to more shops, art galleries and wineries in Healdsburg and Dry Creek road to Lake Sonoma.

Private parking included for three cars in front of the house and the same level as the main front entrance and the house, also there is a gated lower parking area for two cars.

All year the birds are plentiful but spring is obviously the best time for bird lovers. The most popular birds that frequent the Treefrog river property are Belted Kingfishers, Mergansers, Wood ducks, Ospreys, Egrets, Coots, Steller lays, Little Green Herons and Great Blue Herons. In spring you might be lucky enough to see an occasional harbor seal, some river otters and large steal head trout.

The long days of summer on the river are a favorite time for hanging out on the lawn late at night under the redwoods.

Fall still has warm days and nights and most of the tourists have gone home, but they missed one of the best times to enjoy the sunsets on the river that attract thousands of small jumping fish.

Winter can be enchanting for a lover’s weekend getaway, the large fireplace is great this time of year for a romantic mood after soaking in the Jacuzzi tub and feeling like all of your worries have washed away with the river. One day supply of firewood is provided from October through March.

Both bedrooms have unique artistic design, queen size pillow top beds, closets, dresser and comcast cable TV with DVD player. The maximum overnight guests allowed by our permit is six.

The larger bedroom with wood burning stove has a patio door that opens to the river view deck area close to the hot tub and the second bedroom also has a patio door that opens to the extra storage & laundry room area. Pillows and extra linen provided for the large sectional sofa that is so comfortable that some guest’s prefer to sleep in the living room in front of the fireplace.

The living room/dining room is spacious with vaulted wood ceilings, large dining table and six chairs, accent lighting and original artwork throughout the house created by the owner. LCD TV above the fireplace and a large sectional sofa and Blue ray entertainment. From the living room and bathroom you can access the river view redwood deck that spans the riverfront side of the house, a large picnic table and comfortable chairs make for nice outside summer dining. The hot tub and BBQ are also on the riverside of the deck, with an additional gas BBQ at the entrance area for cooking closer to the kitchen.

The kitchen has everything you will need to feel at home except food, coffee is in the freezer. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and plenty of towels. The house is equipped with an on-demand water heater so the last person in doesn’t have to worry about getting a cold shower and all of the rooms have recently upgraded heaters.

Please view the video on this webpage to see more of the house and check the alternate routes for getting to Monte Rio on the owners profile.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Ralph;

We've enjoyed our stay here at the Treefrog River House.

Before we leave, I wanted to let you know about our busy night last night. Our little girl got sick and we had an ambulance, fire truck and Steve the fire supervisor here, and they took wonderful care of her. It was lucky the fire station in just half a mile away.

We will flying back to Texas soon, we think we cleaned everything up from last night but if I have missed something please let me know and deduct the cleaning cost from our deposit.

We will leave a bottle of wine behind for you, a merlot recommended by John. the wonderful proprietor at Sophie's Cellar in town.



Thanks for the accomodations, the house is great. Should we manage to get back this way, we will definitly keep it in mind, and I will also recmmend it to anyone I know who may be coming this way.

This year I have made many changes to the property that will make your vacation even more relaxing and enjoyable. Thank all of you who have taken such good care of the house.

For people traveling to the Russian river Monte Rio area for the first time there a few ways to get to the house, GPS and Mapquest will direct you off highway 101 going Northwest through Sebastopol, this is the shortest way if you are coming from the San Francisco airport. After passing through Sebastopol you will go through Occidental, a small town that should be on your list of places to visit while in the area, Monte Rio is 10 minutes after that, people who get car sick easily should be careful.

A longer but more direct way if you can avoid the weekly afternoon traffic is going West on River road North of Santa Rosa, this way passes many vineyards including Martinelli winery and Korbel cellars. Ten minutes before you get to Monte Rio there is a Safeway supermarket in Guerneville for supplies.

For a more adventurous trip pass through the old town of Petaluma shortly after crossing the Sonoma county line and go west to Bodega bay for fresh sea food and a 30 minute drive along the coastal beaches before you get to the Russian river, this is were River road meets the ocean, go East along the river and you will turn right onto Moscow road at Duncan’s Mills. The Treefrog house is 10 more minutes away from Duncan’s Mills.

If you are flying domestically you might want to check the Santa Rosa airport (STS) “Charles M Schulz airport”.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

What I enjoy most about our property is the privacy from other vacation homes and the wildlife, especially the birds.

JUST WHAT WE HOPED FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Treefrog River House! The owners have thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable and relaxed. The kitchen was stocked with any dishes, pots, pans, and utensils we could have ever needed. We used the grill on the back patio twice, which was clean and in good working order. The hot tub was nice and clean. The property was beautiful and well maintained, full of green trees, bushes, and flowers, giving you the feeling that you were on your own private island. There were plenty of chairs and lounges when we wanted to relax but also lots of room for badminton. The decks had 3 separate areas for outdoor dining also, so we could enjoy all different areas of the gorgeous yard. Last, but certainly not least, it was so nice having access to kayaks and a canoe anytime we wanted, which is what we spent a great deal of our trip doing. We would definitely come back and recommend to anybody who would like to enjoy a little piece of heaven for a few days. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had such a great time! We really needed to unwind for a few days and this home allowed us to do just that. Also if you are out and about, I would like to recommend the Bia Bakery in Monte Rio. They have some of the best gluten free goodies I have ever tasted!

DISAPPOINTED

  • 2 of 5
The garden was great. The river was beautiful. The house was comfortable, but a little worse for wear. The kitchen was squalid and the hot tub was filthy! Surmising from the signage stating that if the owner has to drain the hot tub after your stay (and charge you to do so) it would appear that it is not cleaned between visits. Let's see 6 people for 7 days 1 hot tub 42 bodies, ick.

Owner's Response: The hot tub is never filthy, it is always serviced before guests arrive and if it was filthy why didn't we hear about it when you arrived?
It can get filthy when people don't read the signs about showering before using the tub. We drain and clean the tub if it is left dirty when people depart, if it is clean we balance the chemicals.

PROPERTY IS A JEWEL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this amazing home on an unusually large piece of riverfront property: multiple decks and yard areas even before getting to the water, which is down a private path. The home is small but very smartly set up to maximize the outdoor space. There is a little loft above the kitchen, perfect for my 11 year old. Everything was clean, green, inviting with tons of homey touches. You can tell the owners live there, it's cared for with love.

ENJOY THE SCENERY!

  • 3 of 5
We desired riverfront, lush grounds, in the redwoods and a feeling of privacy. This property gave us all of this. We received rain during our stay and watched the river rise! This time of year, the water was muddy looking, but understandably with the winter. There is one house next door and just land on the other side. The house next door was not visible. This made for a nice private stay. This house is a rustic mountain home in our opinion. Not a modern updated residence. Living room with fireplace and comfy couch made for cozy evenings. One entire wall is floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass door opening to the covered deck and river.
The bed was comfortable to us, in the master. I cannot comment on the other bedroom as we didn't use it. The washer/dryer is newer and very clean.
We wanted a stay in the colder weather with rain and we got it! I can see (in warmer dryer weather) the fun to spend most of your time outdoors with the fire pit, decks and plenty of outdoor furniture. We found the community very friendly and the same in Guerneville while grocery shopping. Nice relaxing 14 mile drive to the coast. This part of northern California is very pretty. We appreciated the kindness and very prompt attention we received from the owners.
