ESCAPE TO RIVERSCAPE

Welcome to RIVERSCAPE where you can escape life's chaos, and enjoy the tranquility the Russian River has to offer. From the spacious covered deck to the recently remodeled and updated house to the private riverside decks and dock, you'll feel right at home, yet so far away. Begin your vacation with a complimentary bottle of champagne, chilled waiting for your arrival.
Riverscape's covered deck features sweeping views of the river, the redwoods, and the lush backyard. Experience luxury outdoor living complete with a 6 person hot tub; an outdoor kitchen with a bar, sink, large gas BBQ, and prep area; an outdoor living room with couches, a 50' HDTV with Directv and surround sound, dvd player, a pool table/ping pong table, and a washer and dryer. On chilly evenings, you can light up the outdoor heater, and close the canvas curtains to keep snugly while listening to the river slide by.
Sliding glass doors run along the entire back of the deck, so you can see what's going on inside, if you are outside, or visa versa. They also bring in a lot of light to the house, and allows for beautiful views, bringing the outside in.
Just off the deck, the backstairs lead down to a large grassy, fenced backyard with a horseshoe pit, and plenty of room to play amongst beds of beautiful flowers, roses, and banana trees. There is also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to rinse off. Situated under the canopy of an apple tree, is the Boat House which is the perfect place to take a nap on the futon, or change clothes after coming up from the river. The Boat house also has lifejackets, paddles for the kayaks, and other toys to play in the River or the yard with.
Just beyond the yard, the path leads to the River View Deck, with comfortable seating to relax, read a book, take a nap, or just hang out and enjoy watching the river go by. Pull up a stool at the Tiki Bar, enjoy your favorite cocktail, and chill. Just beyond that is another BBQ, and the two (seasonal Mid May - Mid October) waterfront decks--one in the sun, one in the shade-- and the (seasonal Mid May - Mid October) private floating dock where you'll enjoy hopping in one of the kayaks and paddling up or down the river, swimming, or just floating around. At certain times of the year, you may see ducks, Blue Heron, river otters, and possible the foxes that like to hang out in our yard.
The house has an open concept design, a newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and all the utensils you'll need to cook the perfect meal.The dining bar comfortably sits 6 people, there is extra seating around the counter bar in the kitchen, and a dining room table as well. The living room boasts leather reclining couches, a 55' HDTV with Directv, dvd player, and surround sound, as well as a wii with games, and plenty of board games. The house has wifi.
There are two bedrooms, each with a very comfy queen size bed. There is a queen size futon in the livingroom area for extra sleeping space.
Located just 1 1/2 hours from SF, Guerneville is the perfect getaway. Riverscape is just 1 mile from Main Street which boasts a variety of restaurants, a wine bar, the 5 & 10 store, Safeway, antique shops, Pee Wee Golf, and Johnson's Beach. A 1/2 mile in the other direction is Northwood Golf Course with 9 holes of golf (Golf Magazine named it one of the 5 top Alister McKenzie courses in the world!) nestled in the Redwoods, and a few minutes past that is the town of Monte Rio with another nice family beach, and the Rio Movie Theatre. We are 10 minutes to Armstrong Woods redwood forest, and Korbel Champagne Cellars. The ocean is just 20 minutes away, and we are a close proximity to 100's of Russian River, and Sonoma County wineries.
Riverscape has everything you need, and close to many adventures, so you have options to do as much or as little you want to.

About Lauren Cabitac
Our family moved to the Guerneville area over 20 years ago to escape the hectic San Francisco lifestyle. We spent many weekends vacationing in the area and decided we should just live here. Best choice ever!
Lauren Cabitac purchased this House in 2004
Why Lauren Cabitac chose Guerneville
We bought this house in 2004 because of the large yard, beautiful views, the close proximity to town, work and of course, the inviting river in our back yard.
What makes this House unique
Staying at our house gives you the feeling of being very far away, and on your own little escape. Hence Riverscape. While there are neighbors next door and across the river, there are so many tress you don't really realize they are there, and you feel like you are in your own oasis. Being so centrally located to so many activites, restaurants, wine tasting, the ocean, the river, Armstong Woods, shopping, antiquing, hiking, etc., you'll have lots of options to stay busy, or not.

Riverscape was a great place for us to celebrate our anniversary. We loved the deck and walking down to the water. Everything was comfortable and lovely!
Terrific Ladies Weekend!
Our weekend was fantastic. Lauren did an amazing job making sure that the house had everything we needed (and more!) The weather was a bit chilly and drizzly, but it didn't stop us from enjoying the spectacular patio, hiking at Armstrong State Park, dining at Boon, or champagne tasting at Korbel. We even had delicious Mexican food at the Guerneville taco truck :) Although the hostess lives on the property, she was great about giving us our privacy, although we would have loved to have a glass of champagne with her!) Thank you for a wonderful stay. Your home is gorgeous!!
Perfect getaway for sisters birthday
Our stay in the beautiful riverscape property was perfection- even with rainy weather, we couldn’t have asked for a better trip. The covered outdoor living space is amazing, and we loved the sound of the rain hitting the roof as we enjoyed a beer in the hot tub. We would love to stay here again. Thank you!!
Thanks Erin! Glad you had a nice time.
Hope to see you again.
Amazing property, great views! Fun deck outside to relax & hang out!
We are so happy that your birthday was a great time at Riverscape.
Hope to see you again.

Perfect vacation spot for the family
This was the perfect vacation spot for our family of 4. From the minute we got here we felt so welcomed. To list a few things we loved: Complimentary champagne, games for the kids to play, a beautiful back yard area leading to a perfect view of the river. The adults and kids (ages 7 & 4) has a blast. The special touches all around- inside and outside make riverscape the perfect getaway! There are no cons to the stay, it was just perfect! We are defiantly coming back in the future.
Thanks for the nice review. We are proud of our home, and glad you enjoyed it. You'll have to plan a trip during the summer when you can play in the river. :)

We spent the weekend for a mini family getaway. The house is stocked with board games, pool, ping-pong, back yard games and even video games. We stayed during a rainy weekend and had a wonderful time. We were able to visit Armstrong redwood forest and Goat Beach all in the same day. We visited Korbel winery on the way home. We will definitaly be back. Having a bottle of champagne waiting for us after a 2.5 hour ride with three boys was a nice touch 😄�
We are thrilled your family enjoyed our home, and got to do some fun things in the area, despite the rain.
We hope to see you back again.

Located just 1 mile from the quaint town of Guerneville where there are shops, restaurants, bars, Pee Wee Golf, Safeway and Johnson's Beach which is a wonderful family friendly beach. The Vineman is held here in August, and the Russian River Jazz festival is held here in September. We are also just a couple miles to Armstrong Woods State Park filled with hiking trails surrounded by a Redwood tree forest, Korbel Champagne Cellars, and 20 minutes to the ocean, and several other wineries in the Russian River valley.
