ESCAPE TO RIVERSCAPE

Sonoma County Permit # ZPE13-0134

County of Sonoma TOT # 1109N

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 Sonoma County

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking for a place to relax and not have to worry about anything, this is the place for you. Everything is well thought out and taken care of. Perfect for groups of all kinds. Hosts were very attentive before and during our stay. I couldn't recommend this place more, and I hope to be back someday!

Delightful getaway and host!

  • 5 of 5

Instructions were crystal clear, and the place itself was immaculate and well appointed. Cooking in the kitchen was a joy. Our host was a quick phone call away if we needed her and was very genuine and kind. Highly recommended!

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 had a fantastic time at Riverscape! We had plenty of room for lounging on the deck to enjoy the morning sun and watching the birds as well as full use of the fabulous grill/hot tub/pool table set up. It was a cozy escape for a weekend and no detail was too small to be overlooked by Lauren, including leaving us a complimentary bottle of bubbles in the fridge!

Owner's Response: Hi Steph, Thanks for the nice review. Sorry it took so long to respond but I did not get a notice from VRBO that you left a review until now. Something screwy with email. Glad you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to you coming back. Happy New Year Lauren

Excellent-Belated stay

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been happier with our stay (well, minus the historical rains but we still had a great time) the discount at Korbel was AWESOME and we would start each day off with a bottle of Sec from their bar at Korbel, even made the rain feel good. The house is perfect for 2-4 people and the outdoor deck is simply amazing!!! Lauren and Walter made us feel at home and we cannot wait to visit again.

Absolute. Amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Riverscape is a beautiful house. Lauren and Walter have stocked it with EVERYTHING you possibly need. They have decorated it tastefully and maintained it immaculately. The deck is the best part. We spent an entire day hanging out on the deck and had a great time. The owners live below but they were very good about giving us privacy. I didn't see them except for when we checked in. We had the music playing and weren't necessarily quiet but they didn't bother us about it. I highly recommend this place.
