Nestled in a grove of redwoods and overlooking a large lawn leading to the river, this cabin is a private, comfortable, and relaxing getaway.
From the large picture windows, you can view the peaceful early morning river, with fog just receding and ducks floating by.
The house is just 1 1/2 miles from downtown Guerneville and near Russian River beaches. Also nearby are Russian River and Sonoma County wineries and great restaurants. About 12 miles away is the spectacular Sonoma County coast, and 3 miles away is magnificent Armstrong Woods state park. The cities of Healdsburg and Sebastopol, offering world-class dining and great shopping, are 10 and 15 miles away.
The house's large deck, also overlooking the river, has a hot tub and outdoor seating. There's a gas barbeque as well, and outdoor table and chairs for al fresco dining.
The cabin features one bedroom with en suite bath, a second bedroom and second bath, a loft that sleeps two, a large living room overlooking the deck and river, a fully equipped kitchen and adjacent, separate dining room.
Due to winter floods the river is not easily accessible from the bank. We are in the process of installing retaining walls and a stairway to a floating dock. This will be completed sometime this summer. Meanwhile, you may access the river from a sandy beach a short walk down the street. We have kayaks available and a host of inflatable rafts and toys.
All of the modern amenities are available: These include cable TV and free WiFi, a large DVD selection and a Bose music system with an iPod dock.
It's perfect for a weekend retreat or a week on the river.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011
The property is just a 1.5-hour drive from our house in the Bay Area but feels very different from our home: out of the city bustle, it's a tranquil place where life is engaging and easy.
In the woods and by the river, It's a fantastic getaway from the city. It's relaxing, fun, and interesting.
We decided to spend our Thanksgiving here this year, with our 4.5 year old and 4 month old daughters. It is of utmost importance to me that where we stay is both comfortable and clean, and my expectations were exceeded! We spent two cozy nights in front of the wood stove and did not want to leave. Our daughter had her first experience fishing here, which she has long wanted to do, and I cannot think of a better setting in which to do so. And she loved, loved, loved the sleeping loft. We look forward to visiting again! Thank you!
We arrived the day after Thanksgiving and stayed a weekend. I was with my husband, son, mother and our dog Hank. The house was easy to find and access based on directions and instructions provided by the owner. The house looked just like it did in the pictures. The fire was lit when we arrived which was a nice touch! The home is well decorated. It had everything we needed. the only exception that we were not aware of was that we needed to purchase wood for the fire. Outside of that, it was clean, beds were comfortable, and there were plenty of games and media to keep us entertained. The only downside to the property is that the back yard was not usable since there was no grass and it appeared as if planting was in progress. Luckily we did not have too much of a need for it as it rained a majority of our trip. Also, be aware that although the house is on the river, there is no direct access to it, except for a small path in between the property and the neighbors home. I would recommend this property, especially to a family. I would however check with the owner first about the status of the backyard to ensure any work being done is complete, especially if you are renting in the summer and plan to use the yard.
From the moment we walked in we felt that we had entered our home away from home. Wonderful location, view of the river, and the peace of the redwoods made for an idyllic experience. Close to town and many other great activities. The home was sparkling clean and all imaginable cookware. We savoured each and everyday.
We spent a relaxing 7 days here with our two kids. It is a really wonderful property, beautiful cabin chic decor inside, great deck with hot tub, new Weber grill, great level lawn area for badminton or volleyball or relaxing in the provided hammock. Very private, nobody ever bothered us. You can climb down to the river but you need to be young or agile. We did use the neighbor to the left's dock after asking permission. A dock would make this property perfect. The house had everything we needed, kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies including toilet paper, shampoo and soap, towels, bedding, beach towels, etc. It is a 3 minute drive to Guerneville and there are tennis courts and a park with playground down the street a mile or so.
This Russian River home is the perfect place for a nice relaxing time away from all of life's distractions. We've stayed here on several occasions and plan to come back again. The home is very nicely equipped with a comfortable and relaxed feel to it. The description and photos accurately describe everything the home has to offer, is impeccably clean and you can tell the homeowners take really good care of this place. The property is waterfront with a huge lawn for games or for laying around after a quick swim in the river. Kayaks are available too! The hot tub on the deck is perfectly close to the house and with a view of the stars at night. We would definitely recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxed weekend playing on the river or just lounging around watching television and sitting by a cozy fire. Downtown Guerneville is only a few miles away with plenty of restaurants, including a Safeway for groceries. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
I highly recommend a stay in this beautiful home. The Russian River is in your backyard and sets the scene for an amazing getaway vacation. This home had everything we needed to make a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and have a comfortable stay. We made daytrips to Calistoga and Healdsburg. Both great little towns to visit and have lunch and window shop. Korbels is nearby and worth a visit too. Our kids found a rock climbing gym in Santa Rosa for an afternoon of fun and we enjoyed game an movie nights both supplied at the house. Hoping we can make it back and enjoy the river more when the weather is warmer.
