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.

Beautiful, quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time here and I absolutely adore the place! Situated right on the river, it provides beautiful views without you even having to leave! Of course, the ocean is just a few minutes away, but you can actually see it from here!

The decor and setup is charming! The kitchen is well stocked. Also some music is available and books! No cell service for me here, by as a small business owner, I welcomed the quiet. Still had access to wifi if needed and there's a landline in the house if you need it.

Just a lovely place! I am grateful for the time I got to recharge and plan my 2018 calendar in peace and tranquillity!

Charming and Restful

  • 5 of 5

La Bella Cabina is so artfully and charmingly furnished including plants in and out. The ambience made us feel welcomed and cared for. The views across the river reminded us of rural Scotland, lush and peaceful. Among the arrival information were restaurant recommendations in the area which we took advantage of, in part; we were only at the cottage for 7 days (so many restaurants in the area, so little time). And then there is kayaking in the river with the two kayaks provided: paddling in paradise. We so enjoyed spending our 54th wedding anniversary in the Jenner area and, especially, dining at River's End restaurant watching the spectacular sunset over the mouth of the Russian River.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Lila and Jeff have created an extraordinary cottage with simple elegance, smart design, and much love. What a joy to be able to stay in their cottage. Even though we are driving in the dusty hot sun of the Valley now heading home, the cottage and its light is still with us. Thank you Lila and Jeff!

Perfect couples getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Wow, wow, wow. Beautiful spot at the mouth of the Russian River. You wake to views from your bed of the river shrouded in mist. There are many species of birds to watch with the binoculars provided, and you may even get to see a river otter. The house is located walking distance from The River's End, a lovely destination restaurant, and in easy driving distance of the tiny town of Duncans Mills, where you can poke around in little shops and eat locally raised and smoked meats, and Guerneville, a larger town with more amenities. Many lovely hikes and wine tasting are a short distance away. But the best part is the beautiful attention to detail and comfort the owners have given to this charming home. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and this one was by far the mostly lovely and comfortable place we have every stayed. We will definitely be back.
