About Shar Nordstrom

We are retired and frequently travel. We love camping, kayaking, fishing, gardening, golfing, and collecting Sonoma County wines.

Shar Nordstrom purchased this house in 2003

Why Shar Nordstrom chose Forestville

It is within driving distance of our home, right on the Russian River, and in the California Wine County. We have canoed the Russian River for 30 years and have always wanted our own place on the river. Our anniversary is July 4th and we have a big party at the house, with everyone canoeing down the river during the day.

What makes this house unique

Our home sits between the stunning Pacific Coast to the west and the world famous Sonoma and Napa valleys to the east. The surrounding land is mountains, towering redwood forests, vineyards, and river and creek areas, which offer opportunities for adventure, relaxation, and enjoyment of the local award winning wines.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great place! We loved bird watching from the back deck and walking by the river. It felt very secluded and yet was so close to so many fun places, like Armstrong Woods and wine tasting and the ocean. Loved the feel of the place. Very nicely laid out and comfortable. We appreciated all the added little things, like the books and DVDs and games. We were here with friends (two couples all together) and this place worked out great! Hope to come back again.

Relaxing, Cozy Home On the River

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this home. We didn't want to leave! It was perfect for our family. It was just as described. Very clean. Very well stocked. Feels like you are in the middle of the forest since the home sits up higher in the trees. The favorite spot in the home was the game table. We played many games there and enjoyed the bright cheery feeling from the windows there! We also enjoyed the patio. Great access to beach along the river. We loved using the kayaks and tubes. The owner was great to work with. Easy check in and check out instructions.

Great time in Forrestville!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time (2 couples) the master bedroom was perfect with French doors to the patio. The second bedroom (front of the house) mattress was not very comfortable but manageable. Needs a pillow top or super thick pad. Anyway, the layout was great and the river was fun. The stairs leading up were not as bad as it looks. The neighbors were noisy but we kept our windows closed. Living room was very comfortable. Location was great! We visited many wineries and Russian River Brewery is a must! The kitchen was good the only thing missing was a pancake griddle or two large frying pans. All in all it's a very comfortable clean house. Would def. return. The stars at night were beautiful!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Yes, the location is great, with so many great wineries and three of the best breweries (Bear Republic, Russian River Brewery, and Lagunitas). I am sorry about the mattress. We have never had anyone say that, so I will find a solution. Plus I will get a griddle! As for the noise, it is a vacation area, so at times neighbors may be noisy. I'm glad you had a good stay.

Great for Two Couples or Family

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as described and worked out great. This property was ideal for the two couples in our group, with two good size bedrooms/baths and nice commons areas for playing cards and movie watching. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking items, and there is a nice grill and a river view from the deck. The owner sent clear information well in advance of our arrival. This property would be especially nice in summer, but was cozy and fun for our visit during cooler weather for the Sonoma Barrel Tasting Weekend. I would recommend.

Relaxing in Sonoma wine country

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I enjoyed 5 days and nights of quiet comfort in this excellent home right on the Russian River. The listing description and photos were very accurate and helpful. The location is perfect; only about 10 miles from the freeway, but far enough to be secluded and peaceful. The drives to Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, or Calistoga are short and simple. We even enjoyed a morning drive out to Bodega Bay, which was worth the one-hour trip. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. We intend to return soon, hopefully in 2014.

We had a great time visiting Swept Away. The house was clean and well-maintained and had a well-equipped kitchen. View off the deck was gorgeous! Great location to explore nearby wineries. Perfect space for two couples
