ENJOY...a fabulous vacation with old man river, at the RiverHouse, where the Redwoods meet the Russian River. With direct river access and its own private beach, this very special riverfront home is located just minutes from downtown Healdsburg, yet a world away, nestled on a wooded knoll on North Fitch Mountain, safely above the river.
The RiverHouse is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, newly renovated home, inside and out, with a new deluxe queen LA-Z-BOY sleeper sofa with an up-graded ‘air-comfort’ mattress, accommodating up to 8 guests and is child friendly. This lovely cottage also has central heat, a wall-mounted A/C, and hardwood oak flooring. With a wood-burning fireplace and skylight, the living room provides a cozy seating area with the new sofa (bed) and 2 comfy loveseats, a wall mounted 42” flat screen TV with cable, a new Sony blu-ray player, a Sony iPod dock, and WiFi internet access.
The kitchen and dining room with a fan/light combo over the table, are bright and airy with a skylight, river views, and a new slider, opening to the patio with stainless steel BBQ, and river deck. Fully equipped for your cooking enjoyment, the kitchen has a new beautiful ceramic tile in earth tones with new bead board cabinets and wainscoting, and new countertops. There are brand new appliances including a Bertazzoni professional stainless steel 4-burner range with built-in microwave and hood above, Bosch stainless steel dishwasher, a beautiful new Kohler white, porcelain, farmhouse sink, butcher block island, some Calphalon and All-Clad pots and pans, and a new stainless steel Kitchenaid fridge over freezer combo, along with dishes, glassware, flatware, blender, toaster, coffeemaker and grinder, pantry essentials, and more. The 3 bedrooms are appointed with queen beds, new luscious linens, pillows and bedding, clock/CD players and end tables with lamps. Both showers are newly tiled. An indoor laundry room with washer and dryer, as well as an ironing board and iron are also provided. The Master bedroom has new hardwood flooring, newly remodeled bathroom with white ceramic tile, new pedestal sink, new commode, and a beautiful new matching shower with rainforest showerhead. The shared bath has a new single sinked vanity and new toilet, as well.
This special, redwood fenced property is private and serene, with a new double carport inside the fence, which can also be used as a shaded sitting and/or play area. Abundant outdoor amenities include beautiful landscaping, a redwood deck with a 6-person Sundance Hydrotherapy spa under the mature Redwoods, new round table and chairs for 6 with umbrella, as well as 2 chaises and 2 chairs with ottomans, overlooking the river. There are new outdoor uplights which light up the Redwood canopy, as well as downlights for enjoying the outdoors in the evenings. Follow the beautiful handmade rock stairway down to your own private beach with a 2 person kayak (for seasonal use and for guests with experience). Life vests are provided and river shoes are recommended for comfort and safety, while enjoying the river.

COME FOR A MAGICAL GATHERING 'DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE', ENJOY THIS UNIQUELY PEACEFUL RIVER EXPERIENCE, AND REVEL IN THE BEAUTY OF NATURE!
The house was cozy and clean. One of the bedrooms has an en suite bathroom, the other two bedrooms are near the hallway bathroom. There are ample towels and blankets which made dipping into and out of the hot tub easy! The house felt very quiet and secluded from neighbors. As others had mentioned there is a ton of kitchen supplies - we cooked every meal, even baked dessert. There is a wonderful surround sound system which made listening to music and watching movies quite enjoyable. Our group went for NYE and had a great time - even though the river was too cold for any kayaking or swimming. There are well placed lights which displayed the redwoods beautifully. Just 5 minutes to downtown Healdsburg. We would come back.
Hits: A pleasant home in a beautiful setting; nice grounds; wonderful area. Very comfortable living room. Great fire place. Kitchen had nice appliances. Beds and bedding were very good. Especially enjoyed heated floor in hall bathroom.
Misses: For a winter stay, bedrooms on west side of house were chilly; kitchen lacked tea kettle (microwave is not a substitute for tea or hot beverages) and drain board. Both bought at Target. Bathrooms lacked enough towel bars; Had to buy facial tissue. Placemats were hidden behind wooden trays above oven and truely invisible - only discovered last morning. We brought DVDs but DVD player required moving HDMI cables around in spite of directions. TV -DVD combo not user friendly - fortunately one of us had a PlayStation.
This house was clean and just as advertised, except that the deck overlooking the Russian River was even more lovely in person than you can see in the photos. Booking and communication was simple with this property manager. A perfect location for participating in the Food and Wine Affair centered in Healdsburg. It was an easy drive to both the Dry Creek and Alexander Valley wineries.
We loved that this house was right on the river and had a great view off the back deck. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to enjoy many meals here.
When we had a few glitches that needed repairs, the property manager was very responsive.
Highly recommended house for your CA get-away.
We have rented several different homes in Healdsburg, and the Riverhouse in the Redwoods is by far our favorite. Such a comfortable home in a perfect setting. We spent most of our time relaxing on the big deck watching the river. It felt very private with the large trees around the perimeter. We felt safe letting our dog roam as the property was fully fenced. The interior of the house was super comfortable and clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware, etc. and had a wonderful view!! Lots of extra towels too, which is always a plus! The owners clearly take pride in their home and it is appreciated......we'll see you again soon!
The back deck on this house is what made it so special to us! And the fireplace! The back deck and jacuzzi directly overlook the Russian River and it was decadent to be able to sit outside in April and enjoy the beauty of the River (despite a few pesky mosquitos this time of year -- so remember to bring bug spray)! Having a place like this to come home to after wine tasting all day was a highlight of our amazing long weekend in Healdsburg! Loved the home and will book it again!
