BLUE CANOE - RIVERFRONT DOCK/BOATS/HOT TUB

Guerneville House Rental Photos and Description

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

This beautiful 3 Bedroom/2 Bath Riverfront home is conveniently located one mile west of downtown Guerneville. With its location directly on the north bank of the scenic Russian River, you'll enjoy panoramic river views from the house, deck and back yard.

Enjoy a game of badminton in our spacious sunny upper back yard, or stroll down a gently sloped path to the riverfront lower lawn and lounge in the hammock or one of our Adirondacks. Our large Private Dock and secluded location on the deep side of the river will allow you to enjoy a swim or kayak without the crowds of the local beaches. We provide a canoe and 3 kayaks (2 single, 1 tandem) and a canoe for seasonal use (spring, summer, and fall - weather permitting) and life jackets so your entire group can go paddling together.

When the sun goes down, you'll appreciate the finer points of our home, including updated appliances, furniture, linens, a Weber gas BBQ grill, and more. With beautiful vaulted ceilings and views of the river, the Spacious Kitchen is ideal for entertaining (dining table seats 8).

Big and small kids alike will love the foos ball table, ping pong table, large collection of board games and our 46' HDTV. At the end of the day, take a soak in the hot tub or curl up with a book in front of the wood burning fireplace. Truly as good as it gets!

LOCATION - Our home is situated on the banks of the Russian River and is a convenient 10-15 minute walk or 3 minute drive to charming downtown Guerneville. With many world-renowned Wineries located just minutes away, Guerneville is the perfect hub for your wine tasting expeditions. Other attractions within 30 minutes of our home are the local redwood forests, the oceanfront towns of Jenner and Bodega Bay, and beautiful Occidental.

BEDROOM features include new high thread count linens, pillow top king mattress, memory foam topped queen mattress, light blocking curtains, flat screen tvs, and plenty of comfortable pillows.

BATHROOM features include bath and beach towel sets, provided shampoo/conditioner/soap, a large jetted soaking tub in the master bath, and a shower/bath combo in the guest bath.

FULLY STOCKED KITCHEN includes an extensive spice collection, olive oil, balsamic, cooking oil, flour and baking supplies, coffee/teas, sugar/honey/cocoa, and more. The large cookware collection features high quality Cuisinart stainless steel Pro Series cookware and Teflon frying pans. The new small appliances include a toaster oven, microwave, Cuisinart, blender, mixer, juicer, and waffle maker.

NEWER MODEL APPLIANCES include a stainless steel French door refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and front-load washer/dryer. Our tankless hot water heater ensures all of the water lovers a hot shower after the morning swim. Cooks will appreciate the multi-BTU gas stainless steel range and range hood. The new furnace is equipped with a wireless remote access thermostat that allows us to pre-heat our home for our winter guests, prior to their arrival.

OTHER TIDBITS: Tons of private off-street Parking.....10-15 minute walk to downtown Guerneville and Safeway.....large upper Back Yard.....easy access down a gently sloped path to the riverfront Lower Yard and Dock. NOTE: Due to our location on a river that is prone to flooding, our home (along with many other homes on the river) has been elevated above the floodplain. As a result, we have 26 steps leading into the home. Once inside the home, it is single-level.

PLENTY OF ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE KIDS (AND ADULTS): .....Foosball Table and Kettler Ping Pong Table.....Get the laughter going when you break out the Board Games (and find out who is most competitive!)....over a dozen to choose from...Scattegories, Cranium, Apples to Apples, Balderdash, to name a few.....Wirelessly stream your favorite music from your laptop iTunes to our stereo.....Grab a book from our library of over 100 books and curl up by the wood burning fireplace.....Kick back and watch cable TV (premium package, hundreds of stations), On Demand, HBO, and Netflix movies on our New High Definition 46' flat panel TV and Play Station 3.

We purchased our river home in spring 2010 and have been upgrading it ever since. As homeowners and your hosts, we pride ourselves in taking great care of our home and providing our guests with little touches that set the Blue Canoe apart from the usual vacation home rental. Please let us know if have any suggestions or special requests.

Rebecca hails from what native Californians refer to as 'back east'. Translation - The Midwest. Ken hails from Quincy, a small town in the Sierra Nevada. Translation - Native Californian. Rebecca and Ken are both former travel junkies and outdoor adventurers turned DIY obsessed homeowners, with an ongoing list of improvement projects for our vacation homes. Our jobs (Rebecca in commercial interior design and Ken in real estate finance) keep us tied to San Francisco as our home base, but we love escaping the city every opportunity we get (and yes, Rebecca is often reminded by her relatives 'back east' that being 'stuck' in San Francisco isn't all that bad).

Ken & Rebecca purchased this house in 2010

Our passion for the outdoors led us to purchase our first vacation rental home in the Lake Tahoe area in 2005. Our first home was so well received that we decided to try our hand at a second vacation rental home, this time a tad closer to San Francisco, but still keeping with our love of the outdoors (and our additional love of good wine). As for this particular home, we fell in love with the beautiful kitchen/dining room and its spectacular riverfront setting the moment we saw it. Lastly, the huge garage provides many opportunities to expand our amenities package (plans are in the works).

Inside our home you will find nice fluffy bedding, high thread count sheets and quality furnishings that set our home apart from the typical vacation rental.

Guests will also find our kitchen well stocked with tons of nice things that even a gourmet chef will appreciate.

But it's really our riverfront setting and connection to nature that makes our property so special. With our lower yard and permanent dock, our guests can enjoy extended access to the river in the spring and fall that other riverfront homes with seasonal docks cannot offer.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 12, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
The purpose of our visit was to spend some time in wine country - we were initially concerned about the distance from Napa Valley - after our visit, we have decided to make the Blue Canoe a yearly tradition - the property is beautiful - the amenities are exceptional - I had rented a similar property in Geyserville, CA a few years ago and it did not compare to this property in terms of what was offered - the proprietors at Blue Canoe offer the little extras - Netflix streaming, jacuzzi tub in the master bath, top notch coffee maker (the same one I use at home) plus foosball table and kayaks. We had a minor issue with the thermostat and the owners responded to my email within 30 minutes. Our concerns about proximity to Napa Valley were easily quelled because the Valley is only 45 mins away but world class vineries like Kendall Jackson, Korbell, and Martinelli are minutes away. This property is a great value - I hesitated to write this good review because I suspect that once this property is discovered, it will be harder to book but the owners deserve it - the property is great and they are very service oriented

Magical get away at Blue Canoe

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 10, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
The listing looks and feels magical. Our stay there was magical and smooth. It was for the New Years 2014 and few days over. Our family - grandparents, us in the middle, and grandchildren - we all had a superb get together at this place. Inside the house its cozy and spacious. Outside the warmth of the house so much to do without walking off the property: we canoed, we fished (steelhead is moving up the river in winter), we played badminton. Inside - the kitchen is great, fully stocked with little things that you might think you should bring along but it is there. Deck with grill has made the space sparkle with excellent views. And 2-3 tallest redwood trees you will ever see by each side of the driveway. The owners proved to be sweet and very responsive. We surely want to come back. And big Thank You to the hosts.

Great home and great location

This property met eveyones expectation and then some. We have never stayed at a rental property that was better equipped and organized. The owners were excellent communicators and were very accomodating. We were very pleased with the overall location and all of the information provided on the web site was right on the money. We liked the proximty to the river, the game room in the garage gave us lots of fun in the evening. The nice back yard provided space for corn hole and of course it was nice to have a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this property and Ken and Ken and Rebecca. First class all the way!

Great Russian River Abode!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
My fiance' and I loved Blue Canoe!! Nestled in the redwoods, the master bedroom has a skylight that has you waking up and gazing at the redwoods. The deck (and hot tub) has a lovely view of the Russian River. Blue Canoe has everything you could ask for in a vacation home, especially if you enjoy cooking. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you need--spices, vinegars, oils, coffee, recipes on the fridge--so all you need to do is run down the road to Safeway and pick up your main ingredients--or bring them from a local farmers market. Blue Canoe is private, elegant, and cozy. The towels and bed linens were soft and amazing. The entertainment system let us kick back after long days of wine tasting. There are incredible wineries within ten minutes of Blue Canoe. Forestville Pizza was 15 minutes away with AMAZING pizza and a fantastic salad bar. I lived in this area for a number of years and find Blue Canoe ideal for a real wine country and Northern California experience. Central to so many interesting places--Healdsburg (great restaurants), Occidental (true small town charm), not to mention the pleasure of being in Guerneville, a real Russian River community. We drove out to Jenner for coastal hiking and also went to Armstrong Woods --Muir Woods without all the people. The owners are incredibly easy to deal with and so helpful. It is as advertised and cannot be beat. Fly to SF then high-tail it up to Blue Canoe and really LIVE!
