I have owned this home for over thirty two years. Raised my three sons here. It is now time to move forward and I have decided to make my lovely home available to other families to enjoy. I have a life time of cherished memories and hope you will create some for yourselves.

I am now retired and decided to travel some and explore new areas.

Arthur Friedfel purchased this house in 1980

I did not buy this property for vacation rental, it was my primary residence for over thirty years. It is a perfect location with fantastic views.

My house is a large home with many varied areas. It will allow room for several different events to happen at same time. Located on the Russian River that they dam up for summer. It is like having a large lake in your back yard. Fishing, boating and swimming are just a few steps out the door.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
The Camellia House was great! Nice back yard with dock right on the Russian River. Very large house with plenty of communal space for hanging out with friends and family. Nice hot tub and grill. Arthur was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Would love to stay in this house again in the future!

THANKSGIVING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
There were 13 of us who stayed at Camellia House over the 2013 Thanksgiving holiday, and Arthur could not have been more accommodating or gracious. We needed to have some arrangements made to have medical equipment delivered to the house ahead of our arrival and Arthur met one of our party there a day early and helped set things up for us.

There's a lot of room and, as others have noted, it's not a traditionally configured space but it worked for us. Some people were upstairs enjoying the fireplace, some were drinking wine in the solarium, some were playing games downstairs and a couple were even in the hot tub. We even took the canoe out one day! We put a couple of tables together and had Thanksgiving dinner for 17 in the solarium. Truly enough space and variety for everyone.

The location is great as it was a five minute (or less) drive into town. It's admittedly not the newest or shiniest house on this site, but it was perfect for our group, and we'll all remember this trip fondly.

A GOOD CHOICE

  • 4 of 5
We gathered for our annual Family "Camping" at the Camellia House this year.
We had a wonderful time.
Arthur is very easy to work with and accommodating.
The house has everything needed for meals, sleeping and river fun. It is comfortable and clean and everything was easy to find.
We usually try someplace different each year but I believe we will return to Camellia House - two great areas for all of us to eat together, indoor and outdoor - that in itself is a rare and important amenity!

A GREAT LARGE-GROUP GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We have a group of 3 families that vacation together every year, and Camellia House was terrific for our group of 12. There are lots of bedrooms and breakout areas, including space for the teens and young adults to have space away from the main living area. Indoor and outdoor, there were many choices for large and small group activities.

Arthur was really wonderful to work with, and even took special requests for cleaning to accommodate my allergies. He made the whole experience easy for us.

There was lots of hot water, great dishes and cooking supplies/utensils, nice new towels (and lots of them!), a nice big gas BBQ, comfortable beds and furniture. (We have stayed at cottages where the beds were truly horrible, so this is really a must for us!!!) The neighbors and neighborhood were great and quiet.
The decks and yard were peaceful and relaxing, and really beautiful. It has great river access.

The layout is a bit funky, but who cares? It was not a problem at all for us. It ended up being part of the charm and the fun! The outside back bedroom is quite musty, and definitely cannot be used by people with allergies. Lastly, we would love to see more lighting in a couple rooms, and more food storage shelves in the kitchen.

We were very satisfied and treated well at Camellia House. Thanks, Arthur!

PERFECT FOR GROUPS AND REUNIONS

  • 5 of 5
We had a beautiful weekend - great weather and the perfect house to enjoy it. With multiple decks, a well manicured lawn and easy acess to a private and seculded dock (with kayacks and canoe) we couldn't have been happier!

The house has a bit of an odd setup - though is perfect if you need a bunch of rooms. We were easily able to cook in the well stocked kitchen for our group of 10 and everyone had an easy sleeping arrangement. But even better, there were several group areas in the house to hang out. We could all have dinner together on the enclosed patio or break out to small nooks to watch TV, soak in the sun or play games.

I would highly recommend this house to any group or family that desires extra space. Thanks for a great weekend!

PERFECT HOME FOR A LARGE GROUP

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time staying in Guerneville and what a wonderful time we had. The house is huge and all 13 of us slept comfortably in it. The river was damned while we were there so there was plenty of water and the 2 kayaks and canoe were so much fun for the kids as well as for the adults. We very much enjoyed the large solarium where all of us enjoyed most of our meals in, including a seafood boil. The seating was perfect. There are so many places to enjoy your meals, including the outdoor balconies. One night we ordered delicious pizza for delivery (I forget the name of the pizza place), and it seemed as the delivery person knew exactly what to do. He brought all the pizzas, directly to the tables out in the backyard without asking and that's where we left them. There is plenty of chair on the balconies to hang out, relax and eat. Although a lot of the furnishings were outdated, it didn't matter much because it seemed very clean. The owner, Arthur, is such a pleasant, easy going guy too and very much on the ball. My 2 girlfriends and I enjoyed golfing for one of the days and it was a beautiful 9 hole course about a mile or so away. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone with a big group and who enjoys the outdoors.
