ESCAPE TO RIVERSCAPE

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, and 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 sits a Tiki Bar where guests can hang out and have a cocktail after a day of playing in the river. There is also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to rinse off. Next to the Tiki Bar, 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. 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 likes 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, and there is extra seating around the counter bar in the kitchen. 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 queen size bed. There is a 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,

Steve

Great anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5
Anniversary trip with my wife. Great place to stay. Clean, modern, and very peaceful. So much to do here. Loved the hot tub on the enclosed patio looking out towards the river. Great way to start and end each day. Great place for families too with all the river activities.

Great stay for all ages!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was great! Beautiful setting with great river access (wonderful floating dock making swimming/kayaking easy) and an amazing covered deck you can enjoy year-round with hot tub and grill. We would love to come back but for a longer time. So much to do in the area as it is so close to both the coast, the redwoods, and wineries. This place is so great, though, we would have loved more time to just relax at the house.

wonderful riverside stay

  • 5 of 5
The four of us just spent our second mini vacation at riverscape. It is the quintessential Russian River experience. We live in Healdsburg, so it wasn't a long journey.The property lies adjacent to the river, with multiple kayaks available at the dock. There are several well thought out level areas on the way to the dock, including a Tiki bar, so those not kayaking have comfortable vantage spots ( where the more adventurous can rest afterward, as well ).The house itself is very well equipped, with a nice hot tub, cooking facilities, a pool table, and great AV equipment. The ambiance is festive, with whimsical decorations and lighting.All in all, we couldn't think of a better Russian River and Guerville experience! Thank you, Lauren!

Great for a week away with family

  • 5 of 5
My family of four just returned from a week at this place, and had a great time. All the amenities we could ask for, great access to the river, and a fun backyard. The river is deep in this area (8-9 feet), so it's best if you are comfortable with your kids being near deep water rather than the shallower depths and pebbly beaches found elsewhere on the Russian River, but our 2-year old (not yet swimming independently) still had lots of safe fun in the water. The owners live downstairs, but we didn't hear or see them all week, except when we needed some help with one of the many A/V gadgets.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this property, it has everything anyone can think of and need while on vacation. We (parents) enjoyed superbly equipped kitchen, comfy La-Z-Boy sofas and spa, our boys (under 4) loved endless supply of games and toys. Garden is slice of heaven rolling down to the private dock. We can not speak highly enough of this property, owners outdid themselves! We will be back again, and again and again.
