About Arthur Friedfel

I have owned this house for over thirty five years. Raised my three sons here. It is now time to move forward and I have decided to make my lovely home available to other families to enjoy. I have a life time of cherished memories and hope you will create some for yourselves.

I am now retired and decided to travel some and explore new areas.

Arthur Friedfel purchased this house in 1980

Why Arthur Friedfel chose Sonoma County

I purchased this property to raise a family and enjoy the beautiful areal, it was my primary residence for over thirty years. It is a perfect location with fantastic views of the river and redwood mountains.

What makes this house unique

My house is a large home with many varied areas. It will allow room for several different events to happen at same time. Located on the Russian River that they dam up for summer. It is like having a large lake in your back yard. Fishing, boating and swimming are just a few steps out the door.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very big and comfortable with an awesome location right on the river. We loved getting out on the river and relaxing on the multiple levels of decks (with hot tub). A short drive to downtown Guerneville with cute shops and restaurants. Easy check-in/check-out and Arthur was available when we had a question.

Plenty of space for large families

  • 4 of 5

Very happy with our stay. It was a good fit for our families 10+; plenty of rooms and beds for everyone. Our favorite thing was how the lower level of the house was essentially its own house w/laundry room. Plus the outside room w bathroom was nice . Arthur was very pleasant and prompt regarding all communications.

Beautiful house and location. Sleeps 10 adults comfortably, not 11

  • 4 of 5

We booked the Camellia House for 11 people to celebrate our friend getting married in nearby Monte Rio. The house has a great location with private backyard access to the river. We enjoyed the available amenities for the water, including the kayaks, oars, and floaties, and we enjoyed the floating dock as a great jumping off point. Also, the hot tub was a huge plus. One note, the eleventh friend who ended up sleeping on the sofa bed one night and the futon the next night reported not having a comfortable night's sleep for either night. So just be aware, if you have more than 10 people, make sure the 11th and 12th person are okay with not getting a traditional bed with a mattress on a box spring.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend here with friends this June. The house was great. Lots of space and impeccably clean. The location is awesome. There is easy river access from the backyard. We enjoyed the outdoor deck and lawn space, the gas grill and the hot tub. Arthur was a wonderful host. He is very responsive to his guests as well as extremely friendly and welcoming. This is a highly recommended rental.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of 12 and had an amazing time! Check in was easy (thanks, Arthur!) and the house has ample space with 5 bedrooms and a queen size sleeper couch. There were enough towels and blankets, and pretty much everything you need in the kitchen, including more spices than I expected (though we couldn't find a brush to clean the bbq after using). The weather wasn't great so we kept to the hot tub and decks instead of the river and lawn, but we had a great time. Would definitely rent again!
