Years ago when a seven-mile stretch along the Russian River from Rio Nido to Monte Rio was known as 'the Irish Riviera,'my grandfather, an Italian carpenter from San Francisco, was the first to purchase a tract of river front just a mile or so from the resort town of Guerneville. That was back in 1932. Over the decades the cabin he built has undergone several dramatic changes. In the 1955 flood, the original 3-story cabin, with expansive decks & multiple guest rooms, disappeared in the torrential flood waters. We built another cabin in its place and anchored it around two towering redwood trees. Then, after the 1997 flood, we raised the cabin to preserve it from future floods and, in the process added a cathedral ceiling and two new decks.

Today, our cabin sits on a knoll above the river, just 1/2 mile downstream from Korbel Winery. Decks extend out the front and back of the second-story structure where the great room and 2-bedrooms and bathroom are located. The cabin's rustic ambiance is heightened by knotty pine walls which, in the great room, rise up 21 feet. In summer, the cabin is well-insulated to keep guests cool and in the fall and early spring a woodstove fireplace makes the cabin warm & cozy. From the back deck, one can sit in the shade beneath a canopy of bay tress and redwoods and look down upon our private beach. The front deck provides a view of the vineyards and the hills beyond that rise up on both sides of the river. Please come and enjoy De's Cottage a river cabin in the Heart of Wine Country.

I can't say enough good things about De's cottage. My wife and I just spent the weekend there with our 2 and 5 year old children and we had the most wonderful time - really, it was the best family vacation we've ever had! The cottage is so charming and lovely and has everything you need. All of the windows and sky lights made us feel like we were in a tree house :) The boys loved runnig down to the basement to swing on the indoor swing and riding around on the little kiddie toys. The best part, though, was cruising around the river on the canoe and finding our own little slice of paradis on the river. I never would have guessed that a vacation with two small children could be relaxing but this one was - the boys played all day in the sand and water while my wife and I took turns relaxing and going for swims. We hope to come back next year and stay for a whole week!

Owner's Response: Glad you found our refuge in the redwoods so relaxing. De's is always a great place to get away from it all.

Our family of 4 and 1 dog just returned from a 4 day stay at De's Cottage. We have used vrbo about a dozen times now, and this was by far my best pick. Beginning with the excellent communication I had with Michael leading up to our stay. Everything that we could ever need or want was there at our disposal. The house was tidy and adorable. I fell in love with the neighborhood and met the neighbors when I would walk the dog. We had absolutely no problem there as the yard and house were dog proof. My kids could play in the yard or on the decks or in their little bunk bed room. It was small, but somehow felt roomy. We loved our practically private beach. I could just feel the warmth and the love in this house. No one wanted to leave and we will be coming again.

perfect retreat

This is a beautiful cabin with great river access. sits back from the river so you are shaded from the hot summer heat and protected from the loud river rafters on the summer weekends. The cabin has a great kitchen, with lots of space for our group to enjoy. We cooked five times in this cabin and there were plenty of utensils and amenities to make a comfortable meal. Although there is only one bathroom, the access to the outdoor deck, and the private door separating the toilet/shower from the sink really simplified the group situation. We look forward to coming back.

I'm writing this the evening before we are to leave for home, and even though I have loved every minute of this trip, I feel sad to say goodbye to such a great place. The guys golfed during the day and our lil canine family member and I loved going for walks down to the river. It was like no one else was around. We had our own piece of heaven. Thank you to the (name left blank) family for sharing their wonderful Cottage with us.

Beautiful House, Lovely Spot, sleeping arrangements somewhat misleading

  • Submitted: Nov 15, 2012

The house and riverfront access were lovely. Although we were somewhat disappointed by the layout of the bedrooms (see below), you should not be disappointed by anything else.


The only "complaint" we had is that there are not quite two separate bedrooms. The bedroom that has the multiple beds opens into the bedroom with the queen size bed. Additionally, the wall between the two rooms does not reach the ceiling. If you, like us, were hoping for a sleeping situation where all the kids can be in one room and the parents can have some privacy in a second bedroom, you will be disappointed.

Owner's Response: "It's a rustic CABIN." Glad you enjoyed it.
