THE POPLARS: FAMILY-FRIENDLY; SPA; WALK TO RIVER

Monte Rio House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Poplars is a newer one-story country home – there are only three steps for access and a level grassy fenced back yard, a perfect play space for your children or dog. This is a peaceful, quiet retreat on a residential dead-end street.

The Poplars has free domestic long distance and broadband wireless Internet access. The living room offers a woodstove and a flat-screen cable HDTV with DVD/VCR. There is central-heating system and 4 large skylights. Relax on the spacious sunny deck which offers a 4-person hot tub, an electric barbecue, and al fresco dining with tree and mountain views. Or sip coffee on the covered front porch and listen to the breeze wafting through the poplar trees.

The fully-equipped kitchen is big enough for holiday meal preparation. There is also a picnic basket for taking to the beaches.

Each bedroom is decorated with a different theme: the Birdhouse Room has a king-size bed and private bath. The Lighthouse Room has a queen-size bed, the Safari Room a double/full-size bed, and the two share a full bathroom. There also are two double/full-size futons in the living room.

Spring and fall provide opportunities to view the plentiful birds and experience the natural beauty of wildflowers or view autumn's foliage. Watch the morning sun filtered through nearby redwoods. The lazy days of summer are a favorite time for hanging out on the fenced back deck or lawn enjoying the filtered mountain views. Fall still has warm days and most of the tourists have gone, yet it’s one of the best times to enjoy the sunsets at the ocean only 6 miles away. Winter can be enchanting for a lover’s weekend or a great holiday.

There is a 2-car garage for your bicycles/watercraft and a 2-car driveway for off-street parking. You're only a short distance from the river, ocean, quaint towns, and many wineries! Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time!

The house is in a great location, with the river, the beach, and

Guerneville so close.

As other have commented, everything needed is here, you've made sure that the house is warm and inviting.

We both truly enjoyed the stay!

Thanks!

We are a retired couple living in the greater Sacramento area of California. This is our second home and we love the beauty and amenities in Sonoma County. We enjoy listening to the breeze whispering through the Poplar trees.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

We owned a ski cabin in the Sierras. We chose to trade it for property near the ocean which we love and nearer to our son. We love the coastal climate, being far enough inland to escape much of the summer fog, but close enough to escape the summer heat also. There are many small towns to explore with interesting shops and events. Sonoma County is beautiful, peaceful and relaxing, yet not isolated from the more urbane amenities.

We enjoy the absence of commercial businesses and freeway noise. We like the peaceful days spent without the hum of a city. Yet we are near enough to enjoy world class dining and wine tasting, or strolls through the villages and small towns. We can rent canoes, rafts, and kayaks within 3-4 miles. We have an easy 6 mile drive to the coast at Jenner. Historical Fort Ross is a few miles north on Highway 1. The home is surrounded by treed mountains, yet is sunny and bright.

Owner's Response: There is community river access at the end of the street, about a 10-15 minute walk. Walk past the signs, straight west along the path at the edge of the field, through the trees to Austin Creek, then turn left to the confluence with the Russian River and a good swimming hole. You may also park at the end of the street.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND @ THE POPLARS

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Poplars during Memorial Day weekend. The house was beautiful inside with a great open layout with the livingroom and dining area. It was great to be able to keep an eye on the kids while the parents were preparing/eating dinner. The rooms were clean and everything was in great working order. Each of the bedrooms had very comfortable and firm beds. The only reason I amgiving my overall experience a 4 star vs. a 5 star is because the becah that was mentioned in the advertisement was practically non-existent due to the recent weather so we had to drive to Guerneville for the beaches.

I would definitely stay here again on a future trip!
