Jenner house description

The Viking House at Jenner is the perfect getaway for one to two couples who want to rest and play on the Sonoma Coast. This cozy two story home features multiple decks and spectacular Russian River and Pacific Ocean views! With unassuming Scandinavian charms, the Viking House will win you over with all the comforts of home, a well-equipped kitchen and lots of amenities.

Located in the small town of Jenner, Sonoma County, California, our riverside house boasts river access and a quiet, yet central coastal location perfect for river, ocean and wine country exploration. Numerous activities abound nearby including kayaking & boating, beaches, wildlife viewing, hiking, golf, wineries, gourmet restaurants and much more! Whether you are looking for the perfect place to curl up with a book or to experience the bounties of California wine country, you'll find it here!


Why stay here and not elsewhere?: We believe that details make a difference, so we supply several complimentary extras to add to your enjoyment of the property. There will be a bottle of local wine and chocolates, seasonal decor, and what you might need to enjoy a day at the beach. We include beach bags with towels, mats, and frisbees. Also, special occasion extras upon request.

The Viking House is a prime location to enjoy the Sonoma County coast. While Bodega Bay is often foggy and grey, it's been our experience that Jenner generally gets more hours of sunshine, even in the winter. Although it's not unusual to see fog in the mornings in all four seasons, the weather remains pleasant throughout the majority of the year. In summer, it's bright with warm sun, but, with gentle ocean breezes, it remains much cooler than inland areas.

Russian River: Kayaking and canoeing are some of the best ways to experience the river. Just down the street from the house, you can rent a kayak and experience a whole different perspective of the town and the surrounding hills. Paddle around Penny Island, go to Goat Rock beach or get up close and personal with birds and seals fishing in the mouth of the river. When you get tired, you can bring the kayak up to shore at the house and rest before heading out again. Once you've explored the areas around Jenner, you can head upriver to Duncan's Mills and Guerneville where you can also rent equipment to enjoy redwood views in slower moving waters. For more details about the area and our home, visit our website, see link below.

Bodega Bay: A visit to the bustling fishing community of Bodega Bay will be a highlight of your stay. On the way, you can stop at a variety of beaches, including Shell beach, one of the best places to explore wildlife in Tidal pools and study interesting geological rock formations. When you get to Bodega Bay, exploring the shops, art galleries and fine restaurants is a pleasant way to enjoy the area. Also, many coastal adventures can be arranged. You can book and rent gear for all kinds of fishing and watersport outings, including deep sea fishing, whale watching (in season), surfing and more. Horse lovers will enjoy riding on the beach through Chanslor Stables. Golfers will relish memorable views while hitting a round at Bodega Harbour Golf Links, an 18 hole Scottish links style course. Film buffs will enjoy taking a short drive inland to the town of Bodega where Alfred Hitchcock filmed the classic movie, 'The Birds.'

                          Located at the mouth of the Russian River, the small town of Jenner is an excellent place to get away from it all, while still enjoying proximity to Sonoma County attractions. Goat Rock beach is only minutes away and is an excellent place to walk and view coastal wildlife. Drive along Highway 1 for dramatic views and visit dozens of other unique beaches or see historical Fort Ross State Park. The bustling community of Bodega Bay is about 15 minutes south and offers a wealth of coastal tourist activities like fishing, golfing, surfing, whale watching, restaurants, and much more. About 10 minutes inland, you'll find the quaint village of Duncan's Mills, which hosts fun summer weekend events like civil war days, a rodeo, and an arts festival. Drive 20 minutes further and reach the larger community of Guerneville, home of the must-see towering redwood trees in Armstrong's Woods. Here you can also experience weekend concert events featuring A-list Jazz and Blues musicians each summer.
