ZIN & ZEN ON THE RIVER IN WINE COUNTRY-HOT TUB & KAYAKS!

Russian River House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom Cottage on River - Close to Everything!

Relax among the redwoods in your riverfront cottage with brick paver patio, large deck with hot tub and seasonal dock with three kayaks available in the summer months. In the winter months, curl up with a good book near the fire in the wood stove while you wait for the rain to pass before you head out to visit some local wineries. Or go for a hike in the redwoods or one of the Sonoma coast beaches. You are surrounded with lots of mature landscaping, flowers, majestic redwoods & fruit trees striking the perfect balance of sun and shade.

The first thing you'll notice when you enter the house are the beautiful wide-plank wood floors and the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river and trees creating a peaceful zen-like atmosphere.

The upstairs has two spacious bedrooms each with Queen beds and new fluffy comforters. Both bedrooms have lots of windows and one has a deck overlooking the river--perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. There is a small bedroom downstairs with Twin bunk beds. There is also a Queen-size pull-out sleeper sofa in the living room.

The main living areas are downstairs with an open floor plan. The living room has floor-to-ceiling windows on one end and a wood-burning stove on the other end. There is an adjoining dining room with space for eight people. The dining room opens out onto the brick paver patio with lovely views of the river.

The kitchen is well-stocked with all the essentials (cookware, coffee, tea, spices, olive oil, etc.), stainless steel refrigerator, smooth-top electric range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker & grinder, blender and toaster oven. There is an adjoining breakfast nook with pub table seating for four.

The bathroom is located downstairs and has a large vanity area and shower. It is well stocked with plenty of bath and beach towels.

The patio is equipped with a propane BBQ grill, table and seating for eight, and porch swing for two. The adjoining deck has additional seating, and hot tub for up to 5 people. There are stairs off the deck down to the floating dock (available from mid-June to mid-Sept) where the kayaks (two single and one double) are tied up in the summer. The kayaks can be transported to other access points along the river when our dock is not in.

Located in the heart of the Sonoma wine country, on the Russian River, this home is the perfect location to visit the many local wineries, go for a swim, kayak, explore the coast, hike in the redwoods, bike or just relax and do nothing but enjoy the river and watch the local wildlife.

Modern comforts include High Speed Wi-Fi and HD Flat Screen TV with full cable, DVD player, plus ipod/iphone ready stereo. There are also lots of books and games available.

Nearby areas of interest include the world renowned Russian River and Dry Creek Wine regions (20 min), Armstrong State Park for hiking in the redwoods (10 min), Sonoma coastal ocean beaches and hiking (20 min), and restaurants, shopping, antiques, fishing, hiking, biking, tennis, golf and miniature golf.

We are originally from the midwest (Suzi from Michigan and David from Pennsylvania) and now live in the San Francisco bay area. We wanted to find a place to unwind from the hectic city life but not be too far away. We feel blessed to have found the perfect place to relax only one and a half hours away from San Francisco.

Suzi Krebs/David Crum purchased this house in 2012

We have always enjoyed the wine country and chose this house because of its charm and location right on the river. We like to take the kayaks out and watch the local wildlife up close and personal. We also like to hike at the ocean and wanted to be near enough to get there easily and return quickly to the warm sunshine of Guerneville if the coast was foggy.

The views, the redwoods and being right on the river sold us. We like the quiet neighborhood and its proximity to lots of wineries. We enjoy the quaint little town of Guerneville with its many restaurants, 5 & 10 store, flea market, and ice cream shop. We also love walking over the bridge when the dam is up in the summer to The Hideaway, one of our favorite local taverns.

AWESOME PLACE TO SPEND A FEW DAYS ON THE RIVER

  • 5 of 5
We went to the house with some friends from out of town in June before the dam was put up. We were two families; one family two adults with 2 teen daughters, and the other family with two adults and one child. The sleeping, cooking, and interior accommodations were great for our group. A queen airbed and a pull out couch were available as well that we did not use. The kitchen is well stocked and we tried to leave non-perishable stuff there as we could to replace what we did use.

The deck is where we spent a lot of time. There is a nice gas grill that was treat to use. There's a wash off hose as well. The hot tub was great and we spent some time there as will. The deck overlooks the river and the opposite bank. Int he morning we saw plenty of avian activity including osprey, red-tailed hawks, at least 5 species of waterfowl, and all throughout the day we enjoyed the various butterflies that were nectaring on the flowering plants on the hillside below the deck.

There a dirt step path that leads to where a dock would have been. WE accessed the river throughout our stay, even in the low water conditions. the water depth on the house side of the river was about 6 feet at the most, but would be a good 5 feet higher with the dam put in. We had fun playing in the river and taking the kayaks upstream to the public beach in Guernville and boating back down to the house - that took about 90 minutes with a stop to jump off a couple rocks. The river was low, so we had to get out and drag the boats a couple times.

The only thing missing is an outdoor shower on the deck to wash off the river much before getting in the hot tub rather than using the hose to rinse off. Also, the neighbors are very close on both sides, so we had to be wary of not being too loud later at night.

We had very smooth transactions with the owners. They were very attentive and great to deal with.

Overall we had a great time and would come back!!!

WONDERFUL RELAXING GETAWAY IN A QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 4 of 5
We spent a girls weekend at Zin and Zen and the house was even prettier than the pictures. Gorgeous views of the river, lovely hot tub, and beautiful outdoor dining area (including a swing!) that we couldn't use due to rainy weather, but is definitely an enticement for next time. The owners were a pleasure to work with, very helpful in suggesting wineries and restaurants. We would definitely come back! Only reason we're not assigning 5 stars is 1 bathroom is a little tricky to coordinate with our party of six ladies.

HOW RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went up for his birthday weekend to relax on the river. We had never been up to Guernerville prior to this weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the town and Zin & Zen! It's an adorable and comfortable home. The spa and tranquility were exactly what two busy people needed to relax. The owners were fantastic and accomodating as well. We will be returning this summer!

PERFECT GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time vacationing on the Russian River and it was the perfect getaway. First off, the house was adorable and very comfortable with nice large windows for viewing the beautiful scenery outside. We took an easy hike through the redwoods state park just 10 min away. Kayaking was a lot of fun. We launched them at vacation beach and met our truck at Monte Rio then had lunch at the BBQ before driving back to the house. Oh, and the wineries were abundant and close by! There was nothing lacking at this rental...even had spices in the kitchen if you wanted to cook a meal.

ZIN AND ZEN

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Guerneville, and our stay at Zin and Zen was perfect! The pictures on VRBO accurately show the house. The view is beautiful, and the house provided everything you could ever need or want. It was comfortable. The beds were very comfortable, and the house was clean and organized. I would definately recommend anyone to stay there - you will have a wonderful and calming visit.

RELAXING AND LUXURIOUS RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Such a wonderful home, we had the best time. The house was beautiful and had everything we could want for a great weekend. The kitchen is roomy, features a gas stove, and is well-stocked with a nice selection of chef's tools. And the windows! The morning sun pouring into the living room with massive views of the river and trees was pretty magical.

Everything else is exactly as described, very clean and comfortable with lots of nice little extra touches. The deck features a very fancy hot tub which is amazing this time of year to take the chill off! I'd love to come back in the summer to take advantage of the kayaks and direct access to the river.

If you're planning on visiting wineries, we went to Lynmar and Iron Horse...both are fairly close and were GREAT! David and Suzi were very helpful, warm and quick to respond to all inquiries. Have a great vacation!
