Overview

About the property

A Romantic Retreat on the Dramatic Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley

Our beautifully restored 1930's cottage is a charming escape in the quaint seaside town of Jenner By The Sea. Located where the mouth of the Russian River widens to meet the Pacific Ocean, this is a nature lovers paradise with miles of scenic hiking trails, extraordinary kayaking, bird watching, fishing and surfing all at your doorstep. The mouth of the river is a Marine Sanctuary and the home to an abundance of wildlife including Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles, Harbor Seals, Otters and Osprey - just to name a few.

The property has multiple decks with plenty of areas for lounging and enjoying the spectacular views including a private hot tub deck, which is the perfect spot to end your day with a glass of wine as the sun sets. A meandering staircase leads you down to the riverfront where you can launch your kayak or canoe for a trip around Penny Island or take a picnic across the river to Goat Rock State Beach.

Whether you are soaking up the sun on the large deck or spinning records in front of the fire our 450 sq. ft. cabin with a cozy bedroom nook is all the space you need for a perfect getaway.

About Lila Brown

I grew up amongst the farms and vineyards of Sonoma County. After 20 years away I am back and enjoying all that Sonoma has to offer from the dramatic coast to the rolling hills and vineyards.

Lila Brown purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Lila Brown chose Jenner

Jenner has always held a special place in my heart. My father lived here when I was young and I spent a lot of time in this magical little town.

What makes this cottage unique

River front. Stairs to the water. Private hot tub deck. And a short kayak trip to both Penny Island and Goat Rock State Beach! (We provide the kayaks)!

Cozy relaxing cottage in an awe inspiring location

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! So cozy and comfortable, beautiful location, perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. So close to big red wood forests, the ocean is a dune away, and not far from wine country. The perfect place for adventure with kayaks and hiking nearby, yoga on the deck (highly recommended), a soak in the hot tub, wine on the deck, or a nap with a view.

This is one of my new happy places.

The house was very clean and ready for our arrival. It had everything the two of us needed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Jenner. The house was perfect for just the two of us. I enjoyed cooking on the antique stove so much we ate all our dinners at the house with wine from our tasting adventures. The kayaks were a real treat. We went out twice and loved having harbor seals join us. We also went to Armstrong woods twice and went wine tasting from the recommendations Lila left. The beaches and hikes were also great. We would highly recommend the house for any couple looking to get away and enjoy nature and solitude.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5

We were sad to leave, the house was worth every penny and was almost too hard to leave to explore the area. The owners are extremely thoughtful and have set the house up beautifully. Cant wait to return!

Perfect location and adorable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this beautifully decorated and well laid out little cabin looking over the water. The hot tub was heavenly, and Lila had so many great suggestions for local hikes and activities. Everything was perfect and we can't wait to go back!
