Isleton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Let yourself be indulged and pamper yourself while relaxing in this gorgeous resort style home in the heart of the California Delta in Walnut Grove.

Arrive by your own boat or by car.

Arrive and sit on the raised private deck overlooking the Sacramento River above the 50' boat dock while watching the amazing sunset with your loved one while sipping your favorite beverage. Or maybe you'd enjoy a sunrise while listening to the migrating water fowl fly over.

Slip into the 6 person jacuzzi enclosed in a romantic cedar gazebo with sliding windows surrounded by the old english secret garden with an outdoor gas fire pit. Have a special event here such as an engagement party, bridal shower, a small wedding, a small family reunion, retirement party or just to get away from it all. The Delta River Grove Cottage is sure to be all you are looking for, or just a romantic get away for two or several couples or friends to enjoy each others company.

Ready to have some fun and action? Why not play a game of pool on the commercial size beautiful pool table in the game room and bar. This room is a one of a kind with decor and collections you've seen nowhere else. It's a room to have a good time in that's for sure! Are you a dart enthusiast, play a game while listening to your favorite CD or radio station with outdoor sound as well. Bar features a refrigerator and trash compactor for re-cycling.

Want some additional entertainment, watch TV on the big screen with surround sound in the cozy family room by the wood burning fireplace. Kick back and relax while reclining in the leather couch or laying on the window seat cushion in the bay window looking out to the lemon trees. This window seat is said to be a very comfortable place for a single person to sleep with the window open feeling that cool refreshing Delta breeze flow through.

Cooking a meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen is great for entertaining. There is a large island and there is seating for 6 by the bay window and french doors overlooking the english secret garden with statues and garden art. If you like lemons pick some meyers fresh lemons from the lemon trees they are like no other.

Having company over for entertaining or just want a more formal setting for dinner, enjoy the warm and cozy decor of the dining room with seating for 8. This wonderfully decorated room is right off the kitchen and the game room with french doors looking our to the old english secret garden.

Rather barbeque? The large gas BBQ grill is also great for entertaining and separate burner right off of the kitchen for added convenience and staying a part of the fun.

This 3 bedroom home features a large bedroom with a California king Swedish mattress. It's a fantastic room for sleeping in with dark wood plantation shutters to block out the sunrise. There is a half bath, a large closet and a built in big screen TV, DVD player and a stereo.

There is a large bedroom off of the over sized hall bath with antique furniture, a king size sleep by number bed for dual comfort as you please, a large closet, enclosed flat screen TV with DVD player. A marble vanity for getting ready, windows looking out to the sloped levee front yard of a massive flower garden with roses, lavender, butterfly bushes, trailing ivy and more.

Before retiring for the evening enjoy the jacuzzi tub for two which boasts the feeling of being in your own private grotto with beautiful stained glass windows imported rose marble from China and walk in shower.

The 3rd bedroom off of the living room has it's own separate entrance if desired just off of the garden, jacuzzi area and can be used as an office as well as a bedroom.

Feel like staying in shape? The covered back porch off of the kitchen and laundry room offers a new Gold's Gym treadmill or you might enjoy a run or walk down a back country road and feel like you are in another world where an old Delta town called Vorden used to thrive and passengers would board the Steamships at the landing at Vorden and River Road. In the farming season you never know if you'll be surrounded by corn, alfalpha or tomatoes. Whatever the crop, it's appealing to the sight while enjoying the time outdoors.

When you feel like adventuring out only a mile down river is the famous town of Locke, the oldest Chinese community still in existence, There is a lot to see and do in this little Delta town with museums, art galleries, unique shops, dining and drinking at the famous Al's Place or the Locke Chinese Garden.

Keep going down river another mile or so and enter the town of Walnut Grove, the only town in the Delta with both sides of the River occupied by the town. Great dining options here as well with Tony's Place, Guisti's, Wimpy's, the Ryde Hotel and more. Or venture up river north toward the old Delta town of Freeport for an enjoyable dining experience inside or out at the Freeport Bar and Grill, Grand Island Mansion for Sunday Brunch.

There is also exceptional and unique wine tasting throughout the area in either direction from this home with over 50 wineries within a 20 mile radius. From up river toward Sacramento there is Clarksburg with the Old Sugar Mill wineries, Bogel Winery, Scriber Bend Winery and more or head South to Lodi for the Zinfandel capitol of wineries.

Where ever you end up in the Delta it's going to be a marvelous, unique and memorable experience only to be enhanced by these acommodations.

We are travel agents, travel writers and photographers. We fell in love with the Delta many years ago when we were avid boaters and we know the Delta like the back of our hand. From anywhere in the Delta you can find things to do and come back to the Delta River Grove Cottage to continue your experience.

We love the out doors and this property feels like you are outdoors even when you are inside with all of the windows and beautiful scenery surrounding you. The wild life on the property between all of the different species of birds, cottontail bunnies, squirrels really makes you appreciate the wonders of our area. We love to watch sunrises and sunsets and always enjoy being on the water wherever we are. We love to entertain and this home is the perfect place to do that.

Laurel Ross purchased this house in 2003

We have been enjoying the delta since 1966 and it is a beauy and serenity like no other place on earth. After a sunny fall Sunday drive and spotting a piece of heaven we decided to buy and make it our permanent home. We raised our daughter here and then after she went away to College we decided to live our other dream, the dream of living part time in Mexico. When we aren't there we return to the Delta River Cottage and it's surrounding areas.

We enjoy jet skiing and a ski boat, water skiing and wake boarding and not having to haul the boat/toys out of the water at the end of the day, just tying up to our dock. Floating on a raft tied to the dock, sun bathing either on the dock or in the private english secret garden. Fishing off of the dock, watching the sunrises and sunsets. Relaxing in the jacuzzi in the evening. Sitting out by the outdoor fire pit roasting marshmellows with the kids. Going to breakfast at one of the local cafes. Wine tasting throughout the delta and Lodi. Photography and bird watching. Riding the Harley all around the river. Taking a local fishing charter or eco tour of the area. Great history surrounds you with the old towns in the Delta to explore. Close proximity to many great day trips including Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, San Francisco, Lodi or explore Freeport, Isleton, Walnut Grove, Locke, Rio Vista.

My girlfriends and I just spent our fourth visit to Delta River Grove Cottage. Each stay is better than the last. This is a wonderful house with all the comforts of home. Had a great time relaxing and hot tubing and even ventured into Walnut Grove for delicious ice cream one afternoon. I would highly recommend this location to anyone seeking lots of room to move around and enjoy yourself. Even better if you had a boat and access to the river! Laurel is a dream to work with and makes sure that our stay is pleasant from beginning to end.

We chose this place for a girls birthday is large, comfortable, well maintained, clean and was just perfect for our needs. We lounged dockside playing scrabble and drinking wine in the sun, we enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings, and we cooked meals in the well furnished kitchen. The owner is very easy to get a hold of and was very concise with instructions and information about the place. We will rent again, I am sure.

Wonderful, small wedding.

We held a small wedding at the house. We had it Friday (set up day), Saturday (day of the wedding) and for a few hours Sunday (for clean up). The house was a perfect size to get ready in and had plenty of room for friends to stay the nights with us. The kitchen was more than adequate to prepare all the food and serve it. All the guests raved about the game room. The bed in the master bedroom is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The yard had luscious grass and the garden area was beautiful. It was the perfect setting for our small, backyard BBQ wedding. The greenery and flowers and trees and bushes surrounding the house really gave the wedding a homey, yet classy feel. The photos look great because every picture has a wonderful background. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the day and everything the house had to offer. This was the best day of my life and I couldn't have picked a better setting to hold it. If I ever need to hold another small gathering, or if I'm looking for a place to stay and relax on the Delta I will definitely rent this cottage again.

Wedding rehearsal dinner location

My son and his fiance were having their wedding at the Ryde Hotel in Walnut Grove. I looked for restaurants in the area for the rehearsal dinner but couldn't find any that looked quaint enough or laid back enough for 23 people to get to know one another complete with a 2 and a 6 year old. I also was looking for a place to stay near the hotel for my family were we wouldn't have a long drive after a long day and night after the wedding. This home was the answer to all my wishes. It is so charming. The English garden courtyard with it's fire pit provided a perfect back drop for families to mingle and get to know one another. The house itself feels truly blessed, as if angels are watching over its inhabitants.We packed in most of the plating, stem ware, silverware etc., but forgot a few needed items which their stocked kitchen was very capable of providing. The game room was decorated so cute and very personable. We added a scarf from one of the tuxes and a boutonniere to the upper wall as it looks as if happy travelers have all left a little memento from their great time there. Can't rave enough about this beautiful place. My grand daughter loved the boat dock and the tire swing in the magic garden. Beautiful, beautiful place. The owners are very lucky to have found such a magical haven. Thanks for sharing it : )

Home away from home with the added benefit of having our boat just as available to use like our car is.
This home is beautiful, comfortable and welcoming, we had a wonder time and were sad to leave. I have no doubt that others will enjoy it as much as we did.
