Guerneville House Rental Photos and Description

2 bd, 1 bath, large covered deck w/ river view, hot tub, outdoor kitchen 50' TV


Welcome to RIVERSCAPE where you can escape life's chaos, and enjoy the tranquility the Russian River has to offer. From the spacious covered deck to the recently remodeled and updated house to the private riverside decks and dock, you'll feel right at home, yet so far away. Begin your vacation with a complimentary bottle of champagne, chilled waiting for your arrival.

Riverscape's covered deck features sweeping views of the river, the redwoods, and the lush backyard. Experience luxury outdoor living complete with a 6 person hot tub; an outdoor kitchen with a bar, sink, large gas BBQ, and prep area; an outdoor living room with couches, a 50' HDTV with Directv and surround sound, dvd player, a pool table/ping pong table, and a washer and dryer. On chilly evenings, you can light up the outdoor heater, and close the canvas curtains to keep snugly while listening to the river slide by.

Sliding glass doors run along the entire back of the deck, so you can see what's going on inside, if you are outside, or visa versa. They also bring in a lot of light to the house, and allows for beautiful views, bringing the outside in.

Just off the deck, the backstairs lead down to a large grassy, fenced backyard with a horseshoe pit, and plenty of room to play amongst beds of beautiful flowers, roses, and banana trees. There is also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to rinse off. Situated under the canopy of an apple tree, is the Boat House which is the perfect place to take a nap on the futon, or change clothes after coming up from the river. The Boat house also has lifejackets, paddles for the kayaks, and other toys to play in the River or the yard with.

Just beyond the yard, the path leads to the River View Deck, with comfortable seating to relax, read a book, take a nap, or just hang out and enjoy watching the river go by. Pull up a stool at the Tiki Bar, enjoy your favorite cocktail, and chill. Just beyond that is another BBQ, and the two (seasonal Mid May - Mid October) waterfront decks--one in the sun, one in the shade-- and the (seasonal Mid May - Mid October) private floating dock where you'll enjoy hopping in one of the kayaks and paddling up or down the river, swimming, or just floating around. At certain times of the year, you may see ducks, Blue Heron, river otters, and possible the foxes that like to hang out in our yard.

The house has an open concept design, a newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and all the utensils you'll need to cook the perfect meal.The dining bar comfortably sits 6 people, there is extra seating around the counter bar in the kitchen, and a dining room table as well. The living room boasts leather reclining couches, a 55' HDTV with Directv, dvd player, and surround sound, as well as a wii with games, and plenty of board games. The house has wifi.

There are two bedrooms, each with a very comfy queen size bed. There is a queen size futon in the livingroom area for extra sleeping space.

Located just 1 1/2 hours from SF, Guerneville is the perfect getaway. Riverscape is just 1 mile from Main Street which boasts a variety of restaurants, a wine bar, the 5 & 10 store, Safeway, antique shops, Pee Wee Golf, and Johnson's Beach. A 1/2 mile in the other direction is Northwood Golf Course with 9 holes of golf (Golf Magazine named it one of the 5 top Alister McKenzie courses in the world!) nestled in the Redwoods, and a few minutes past that is the town of Monte Rio with another nice family beach, and the Rio Movie Theatre. We are 10 minutes to Armstrong Woods redwood forest, and Korbel Champagne Cellars. The ocean is just 20 minutes away, and we are a close proximity to 100's of Russian River, and Sonoma County wineries.

Riverscape has everything you need, and close to many adventures, so you have options to do as much or as little you want to.

About Lauren Cabitac

Our family moved to the Guerneville area nearly 20 years ago to escape the hectic San Francisco lifestyle. We spent many weekends vacationing in the area and decided we should just live here. Best choice ever!

Lauren Cabitac purchased this house in 2004

Why Lauren Cabitac chose Guerneville

We bought this house in 2004 because of the large yard, beautiful views, the close proximity to town, work and of course, the inviting river in our back yard.

What makes this house unique

Staying at our house gives you the feeling of being very far away, and on your own little escape. Hence Riverscape. While there are neighbors next door and across the river, there are so many tress you don't really realize they are there, and you feel like you are in your own oasis. Being so centrally located to so many activites, restaurants, wine tasting, the ocean, the river, Armstong Woods, shopping, antiquing, hiking, etc., you'll have lots of options to stay busy, or not.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lauren,

Thank you so much for the hospitality. Walter and you were very helpful and kind. We loved staying at Riverscape and are planning on returning next year at some point. Sheri and I have been fortunate to live and travel to parts of South America and Riverscape had the feel of some of the amazing ecotourist destinations that we have visited.

Sheri and I were talking about things that can be improved upon and we really couldn't come up with anything. It seems that you guys thought of everything from labeling instructions for the hot tub to having a fully stocked kitchen. We loved being able to use the grill down by the dock for hot dogs at lunch. The girls loved the Tiki Bar. Your place is very special. There are so many great places to hang out on your property that we didn't even have time to experience it all in a week.

Sheri did have a couple of questions. What was the foam pad on top of the bed in the room with the sliding glass door? She loved the bed because it had the feel of a TempurPedic bed. Also, what kind of couch was that in the living room with the double recliners?

Thanks again for a great experience on the Russian River as it is one of our favorite places to vacation. Please thank Walter for his help. You guys are awesome.

Best regards,

Jul 2013

We loved the deck and comfortable furniture. It's a small house but has many nooks to hang out in. It was lovely to watch the river go by, the fog lift and the sun come out with a cup of tea, music playing and good company on the deck. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedding very nice. The owner of the house is great to work with in booking too. The busy road in front of the house makes one of the bedrooms noisy during the day.

Owner's Response: Hi Jenna, Yes the deck is amazing to sit back, relax and experience the beauty of the River. Glad you enjoyed it. The road is busy in the front during the day but fortunately all the fun stuff happens in the back of the house where you aren't bothered by it. Hope to see you again. Lauren and Walter

Porch relaxing galore!

  • 4 of 5

Every 6 months my girlfriends and I ditch our husbands and children for the weekend! This weekend we decided to rent this absolutely fantastic house with the semi enclosed porch that is to die for. The owners have thought of everything to make a wonderful and relaxing weekend. The 4 of us never really left the house except for a brief trip to look at the shops in town. The pool table, ping pong , hot tub , outside yard games and beautiful view of the river kept us highly entertained. Thank you Lauren for the hospitality!

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Thanks for the amazing review. Makes us feel proud and happy that all our hard work to make our guests comfortable and content has paid off. :) Seems like your next 6 month getaway is in September. You ladies might enjoy coming to the Russian River Jazz festival. 3rd weekend in Sept. Also the kayaks are available, and the river is inviting too! Thanks again! Lauren and Walter

Clean, updated and feature-packed home with a great view

  • 5 of 5

This place has many thoughtful touches that make it a warm and comfortable home that is ready to pamper its guests. Features are too numerous to list, but I will say we appreciated: the hot tub, lounging on the deck, the quality of the furniture/appliances, the updated kitchen, using both indoor and outdoor surround sound systems with our mobile devices hooked up to the house wi-fi and the three sets of sliding glass doors to the outside allowing flexible access as well as natural light and, of course, the view. The shower was a little compact but very clean and functional. If you want more space during your showers, there's always the outdoor shower :)

To top it off, our experience with the booking process and owners matched that of the rental: Great

Owner's Response: Hi Ben, We enjoyed meeting you and thank you so much for your review. Glad you guys enjoyed our home, and appreciated the special touches. The shower.. we've spend years trying to figure out how we can make it bigger, and have not come up anything. I guess when they built this river cabin in 1954, the thought was "Take a quick shower, and get out and enjoy the River and the area!" Same philosphy today. :) Hope to see you guys back again! Lauren and Walter

Beautiful home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Riverscape for a ladies' weekend to explore the Russian River Valley. This property was an excellent home base for our adventures including hiking in the Redwoods at nearby Armstrong Woods, hiking on the coast at Goat Rock, & visiting some excellent wineries (Moshin Vineyards was our favorite). The condo was very clean and very well appointed. Phenomenal outdoor living room right on the river! And the hot tub was wonderful after hiking & wine tasting!! Lauren & Walter were excellent hosts & always available to answer questions. We would return to this property in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Hello 'Mamas" :) So happy you enjoyed your stay, and went on so many great adventures. Thank goodness for the hot tub after all those hikes! We'd love to have you back sometime. There is still a ton to explore! Lauren and Walter

Owner's Response: Hi Tracy, Unwinding at Riverscape is what our goal is at Riverscape. We tried to make it relaxing, and comfortable with all the things you need, so you don't have to leave if you don't want too. Rainy days are great to sit on the covered deck, cozy up with a book and watch and listen to the rain. Glad you got to enjoy Riverscape, and we look forward to having you back. Lauren and Walter
