About Russian River Vacation Homes
We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. Our Story: In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Beautiful, clean getaway
Modern Zen is the perfect title for this lovely gem. It is very clean, well furnished and relaxing. The only issue we encountered was losing electricity for a couple of hours, which apparently is very common there. Cell phone service is nonexistent but there is a land line and WiFi. Makes for a perfect getaway. I would stay at this property again if I were back in the area. Thanks for a great stay!
Post flood stay
Had a nice relaxing time. Home has everything you need.
Perfect place for a getaway
My group of 5 women stayed here for a long weekend while visiting the area and enjoyed our stay. The house is well appointed and everything was thought of. The kitchen has everything you need to cook (even had some olive oil and spices and a few condiments which was really helpful). The beds were very comfortable. The hammock was a wonderful place to take in the true zen of the property. The hot tub was a nice treat as was the outdoor shower. I can't recommend this place enough- it was such an easy process to book and work with the owners and the stay itself was exactly what we needed. It is removed from everything - very peaceful but a short drive to town. Very quiet outside, especially at night. We would definitely recommend!
Charm and Comfort in the Redwoods
Modern Zen was lovely, immaculate, and well-appointed, with everything we could ever need. Those who want conveniences really close by might want to choose a place closer to town, but we found it perfect for getting away from it all, and it was a wonderful stay!
Everything we needed!
We really enjoyed our stay at Modern Zen. There were five afults on our vacation (dad, mom, adult daughters and son-in-law). The home was well equipped and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a well-stocked spice cabinet. The outdoor area is charming and we loved using the hot tub after a long day of hiking. The separate living quarters was perfect for our daughter and her husband as it gave our son-in-law a break from the in-laws. :-)The home is “pet-friendly” yet there was no smell at all, something I was concerned about. The master bed pillows were a bit flat for our liking and the carpet in the master has several stains. Other than that, this home was everything we hoped for. We had a great time and would recommend Modern Zen to others.
Had a great time at Modern Zen on a family getaway with my mom and sister. The house is tastefully decorated and the owners have done a lot to make their home comfortable for their guests. The guest suite is a detached tiny cottage and absolutely adorable. My mom stated there and loved having a place to rest and get some privacy. Beds were comfortable, sheets nice and soft. There are towels for the hot tub and outdoor shower. the outdoor area has a nice courtyard feel as it's bookended by the cottage and main house. The views of the redwoods are great. About a 15 minute drive to town.
Overall all a great place and would love to stay again.
Thank you for the lovely review!! Modern Zen is a real treat! We love sneaking away here too. And we hope to see you again really soon.
