The house is well kept. It has an easy access to the river.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the house. We had a great time. Our grandchildren loved the patio and stairs leading to the grassy area. Our adult children enjoyed sitting and playing games on the patio overlooking the river view. This is place met all our expectations. My husband and I will be returning again in the future. My son's house is too small for everyone to stay at. This is house is only 5 minutes from his home.

This is not your typical "cabin" on the Russian is a well kept "HOME" on the river!

This was our return trip to this home on the river having spent time last year in the month of July. The home is very well maintained and everything possible you could possibly imagine in the kitchen. The deck is so peaceful in the evening especially if you like to Bar-B-Q...the deck over looks the river and the beach area where the snack shop is located. It includes food, ice creame and rentals including kayaks, canoes, inner tubes and umbrellas.

Oh, and how many rentals include central heat on chilly mornings? Did I mention the hot tub on the deck as well? Well there is one!

We highly recommend this home as a rental and so do our grandchildren.

We will again return next year for the third time!

Beautiful, perfect space for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Rick's place is lovely-- the view on the deck is so beautiful and serene. We loved doing yoga and meditating there, and enjoying meals outside overlooking the fog rolling over the trees and egrets flying over the river. The inside space is very homey-- the living room couch was large and very comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the location couldn't be better. Thank you so much for sharing your home!

The perfect view is in the heart of wine country. It is 15 minutes from the ocean. There are 2 four star restaurants in walking distance from the house. The house has a fully functioning kitchen. The porch has a 2 person hot tub, BBQ, and a sitting area. The home is also 10 minutes from north wood golf course( 9 hole)and 20 minutes to armstrong grove (huge redwood trees with a beautiful hike). The house is also 20 minutes from wineries. The house is also located on the river, and canoes are available for rent.
