Sacramento River House
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Wow, what a great house!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a house to accommodate 5 adults and 6 kids, this house was perfect! There were fun things to do inside and outside! We used the putting green and fished off the dock. Having our kids look for the golf balls was a great scavenger hunt! And there is always lizard chasing! We cooked big dinners and even bigger breakfasts, everything, and I mean everything we needed was here! Don't bring your own condiments, the fridge is stocked with all of that! We brought our own alcohol, and found a little stash left by others, we drank some and left some! Thank you Scott for your house, we will be back! Maybe next time it won't be 111 degrees! Luckily, the waterworks park is just 15 min away!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Sacramento River House for an annual fishing trip with 8 guests. The house met our expectations plus some. The deck and dining area was a great space for all of us to gather and eat. You will find everything you need in the well appointed kitchen. Scott was extremely helpful and responsive. I hope to stay again soon.

This was an incredible place to stay at in the Anderson and Redding, California Area. When we arrived we were met by Scott the owner who is a really great guy to work with. He gave us a tour and some really cool History of this place. The floor plan is setup really well and there is lots of room. Some of our favorite parts where the driving range out back where we had a lot of fun golfing. The front room with the fire place and the kitchen are also beautiful. Our group of 10 stayed here and we were comfortable! I've stayed in many places over the past 4 years in this area of visits and this was by far my absolute favorite! Thanks for an awesome stay Scott!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is great property right on the river! The owner, Scott was helpful and friendly. He met us when we arrived to show us around and gave us tips on local things to see and do. The house was very clean and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with extra spices and condiments and the local market just down the road has a great BBQ every Friday night. The house sits on 15 beautiful acres that we enjoyed exploring. It was peaceful to sit on the dock and watch the fish jump in the evening and our dog had fun swimming at the rocky beach under the bridge.

Our teenage boys had a great time hitting golf balls from the platform on the deck on to the large, open field below. With few photos of the house on VRBO we were not sure what to expect but I have to admit we were thrilled when we arrived! We hope we will be back again soon!
