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
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.
