Located above the Russian River (no river views but a seasonal creek runs near the bottom of the property) in the Monte Rio Terraces, and surrounded by redwoods in a peaceful, private setting, we welcome both well behaved dogs and children. Monte Rio beach is just minutes from the house, and has a large beach area where dogs are welcome. We have sleeping arrangements for 2 adults and 1-2 dogs (pack n plays also available and a couch for kids).

Monte Rio is about 5 minutes from Guerneville, and about 15 minutes from Occidental, about 25 minutes from Sebastapol. Both a spa and wonderful bakery are located in nearby Freestone (Osmosis Spa and Wildflour Bakery). In addition, we are only 10 minutes to the ocean and the quaint town of Jenner. Wineries surround the area, including the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Healdburg and the Dry Creek Valley. You can enjoy hiking and horse back riding in Armstrong Woods State Park, and golfing under the Redwoods at Northwood Golf Course.

Try the new Francis Ford Coppola pool and cafe in nearby Geyserville, the lovely new wine bar--Whitetail in downtown Guerneville, the world famous Guerneville taco truck in the Safeyway parking lot, and the new highly acclaimed big bottom market also in downtown Guerneville. There is so much to see and do, you might want to come back for another weekend or a longer stay! We would love to have you!

Please note that for July and August we do have a 3 night minimum, as well as during holidays, and our peak and holiday rates do apply. In addition to the nightly rate, other fees include: cleaning ($60 to $100), nonrefundable Accidental Damage Insurance Policy ($49), and Sonoma County TOT (currently 9%).

Keywords: Newer cabin set high in the Redwoods, lovely views, sunny and secluded. Private hot tub, fenced large double lot--dog friendly.

Location

Wine tasting in the Russian River and surrounding regions in Sonoma (Dry Creek, Healdsburg, etc). Numerous beautiful parks and beaches within a short driving distance, including a 10 minute drive to the beautiful Sonoma Coast. Also enjoy the newly opened Coppola Winery Pool and Cafe in nearby Geyserville! A wonderful day to spend the day.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are San Francisco residents who have had family homes in the Russian River area since the 1940s. The Russian River area is great in winter with a cozy fire to enjoy the woods, and even better in the Spring and Summer when you can enjoy a day at the river either swimming, canoeing, kayaking or just relaxing and enjoying the sun!

Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio:
We love all the activities in the Russian River area--biking, canoeing, kayaking and wine tasting. There are many regional parks, we are a short drive to the Pacific Ocean and Jenner, and also a short drive to Sebastapol, Bodega, Freestone and the rest of Sonoma County including Dry Creek, Healdsburg and points beyond. Don't forget the beautiful redwoods, our cabin is located at the top of the Monte Rio Terraces surrounded by redwoods, but still a short drive to Monte Rio beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are close to numerous wineries, and a short drive down to one of the best beaches in the area--Monte Rio beach. You can put your boat or canoe right in at the beach, or just enjoy a lazy day on the river with a picnic or lunch purchased from the Monte Rio concession stand. You can also rent kayaks and canoes from the concession stand right on the beach. We have a large lovely deck that is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while you grill dinner, and a hot tub set in the woods that seats 4 -5 people.
