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.

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

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.

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.

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.

SWEPT AWAY VACATION

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

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The home was beautiful and had everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting out in the deck each night with a glass of wine from one of the local vineyards. The river, although cool, was beautiful and the kayaks provided by the owners were perfect. We enjoyed paddling every morning before our daily activities. Everyone loved playing a few heated rounds of Pictionary-one of the games provided by the owners. We will defently stay here again if we visit the Russian River again! Thank you!

GREAT BASE FOR WINE TASTING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Swept Away with two other couples for the first weekend of Barrel Tasting in March 2013. The house is in excellent condition and includes a great deck over looking the Russian from which we ate every meal. The bedrooms are both of good size and each include their own bathroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of necessary utensils, pans, spices, etc. the location was great - only about 20 minutes from a host of Sonoma wineries.

The only drawback of the trip was that the couple sleeping on the couch had to go into a bedroom to use the restroom during the evening. Just keep this in mind if you are considering a 6-person group.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great time at Swept Away for Barrel Tasting weekend! Yes, the house is in a great location for wine tasting.
As for the bathroom situation, our listing indicates it is two master bedrooms. The arrangement is best for two couples or two couples and a couple children, but it works.
Thanks for the review!
