Guerneville House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom Riverfront Cottage on Russian River - Close to Everything!

Relax among the redwoods in your riverfront cottage with brick paver patio, large deck with hot tub and outdoor shower, and seasonal dock (June 20-Sept 20) with three kayaks. You are surrounded with lots of mature landscaping, flowers, majestic redwoods & fruit trees striking the perfect balance of sun and shade.

When the dock is not available, the kayaks may be launched from our property or transported to nearby local access areas. In the winter months, curl up with a good book near the fire in the wood stove while you wait for the rain to pass. On a sunny day, go for a bike ride across the foot bridge to Guerneville for an ice cream cone. In the afternoon, plan a visit to some local wineries using the many books and maps available. On another day, go for a hike in the redwoods at Armstrong Park or marvel at the waves at the Pacific coastline at Goat Rock or Shell Beach. At the end of the day, breathe deeply and relax in the hot tub under the moon and the stars. Then roast some marshmallows while sitting by the outdoor fire pit.

The first thing you'll notice when you enter the house are the beautiful wide-plank wood floors and the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river and trees creating a peaceful zen-like atmosphere.

The upstairs has two spacious bedrooms with Queen beds and new fluffy comforters. Both bedrooms have lots of windows and one has a deck overlooking the river--perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. There is a small bedroom downstairs with Twin bunk beds.

The main living areas are downstairs with an open floor plan. The living room has floor-to-ceiling windows on one end and a wood-burning stove on the other end. There is an adjoining dining room with space for eight people. The dining room opens out onto the brick paver patio with lovely views of the river.

The kitchen is well-stocked with all the essentials and more (cookware, coffee, tea, spices, olive oil, etc.), stainless steel refrigerator, smooth-top electric range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker & grinder, blender and toaster oven. There is an adjoining breakfast nook with pub table seating for four.

The bathroom is located downstairs and has a large vanity area and shower. It is well stocked with plenty of bath and beach towels plus a hair dryer. We have recently added a private outdoor shower on the side deck near the hot tub. All the bedrooms have full length mirrors and outlets to make it easier for everyone to get ready at the same time.

The patio is equipped with a propane BBQ grill, table and seating for eight, and porch swing for two. The adjoining deck has additional seating, hot tub for up to 5 people, and an outdoor shower. There are stairs off the deck down to the floating dock (available from mid-June to mid-Sept) where the kayaks (two single and one double) are tied up in the summer. The kayaks can be launched from our property or transported to other access points along the river when our dock is not in.

Located in the heart of the Sonoma wine country, on the Russian River, this home is the perfect location to visit the many local wineries, go for a swim, kayak, explore the coast, hike in the redwoods, bike or just relax and do nothing but enjoy the river and watch the local wildlife.

Modern comforts include High Speed Wi-Fi and HD Flat Screen TV with full cable, DVD player, plus ipod/iphone ready stereo. There are also lots of books and games available.

Nearby areas of interest include the world renowned Russian River and Dry Creek Wine regions (20 min), Armstrong State Park for hiking in the redwoods (10 min), Sonoma coastal ocean beaches and hiking (25 min), and restaurants, shopping, antiques, fishing, hiking, biking, tennis, golf (Northwoods 10 minutes away) and miniature golf (5 minutes).

About Suzi Krebs/David Crum

We are originally from the midwest (Suzi from Michigan and David from Pennsylvania) and now live in the San Francisco bay area. We wanted to find a place to unwind from the hectic city life but not be too far away. We feel blessed to have found the perfect place to relax only one and a half hours away from San Francisco.

Suzi Krebs/David Crum purchased this house in 2012

Why Suzi Krebs/David Crum chose Sonoma County

We have always enjoyed the wine country and chose this house because of its charm and location right on the river. We like to take the kayaks out and watch the local wildlife up close and personal. We also like to hike at the ocean and wanted to be near enough to get there easily and return quickly to the warm sunshine of Guerneville if the coast was foggy.

What makes this house unique

The views, the redwoods and being right on the river sold us. We like the quiet neighborhood and its proximity to lots of wineries. Great hiking & biking! We enjoy the quaint little town of Guerneville with its many restaurants, 5 & 10 store, flea market, and ice cream shop. We also love walking over the bridge when the dam is up in the summer to The Hideaway, one of our favorite local taverns.

Perfect location on the river

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house, it is warm, cozy and comfortable. We chose it because of the included kayaks, hot tub and the location right on the river -- we made use of all of it! We even turned the TV toward the outside and watched the Olympics from the hot tub. The kitchen was well outfitted and the beds were super comfy, bonus points for the bunk beds which our kids loved. We would definitely stay here again!

Good family fun!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very comfortable, decorated well, and peaceful. Our family made good use of the floaties & kayaks in the adjacent river. The kitchen is well equipped which creates a nice environment to cook together, drink wine & talk. It has two floors, which gives a big family some space for quiet time. There is a cute mini-golf course 10 min away. A very nice place to stay to get away from the city for s few nights.

So much fun on the river!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property and we, once again, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is warm and welcoming with lots of lovely touches (a cook's paradise of cooking pans and utensils, lots of board games, comfortable bedding etc...). We had a GREAT time kayaking and roasting marshmallows. The river was lovely and it's great to have such easy access to it via the floating dock. Guernville is a great town and this year we also made it out to the coast which is a short drive away. We hope to continue to make this an annual tradition; it is such a relaxing way to spend a week. Thanks!!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this fabulous house. It is so clean and homey feeling. The outside hot tub and fire pit were awesome to use in the evenings. The house had everything you needed, and the hosts were very attentive to our needs. This was one of our favorite homes we have rented in the last few years. San Francisco area is a very fun place to explore! Our boys did not want to leave!

Relaxing weekend group getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great spot for a weekend out of the city with some girlfriends (6 total) - and fit us perfectly. The layout is great to allow for many people to have their own space during the day, and great for coming together to cook and sit down inside or outside to enjoy communal meals. And the hot tub was a huge plus!

Perfect spot for a relaxing weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

The house is right on the river and inside it was well-equipped with everything we could possibly need to have a relaxing stay. The hosts were extremely responsive and the instructions to find and enter the house were clear. We instantly felt very comfortable and appreciated the thoughtful touches and beauty. We were a group of four, there in fall enjoying the landscape. This place is on our list to return during different times of the year!
