Monte Rio house description

Treefrogriverhouse (21590 Moscow road) is a delightful river house oasis, children and pets can enjoy the one-acre garden and play in the river while you entertain in the shade of the majestic towering redwoods or just read a good book on one of the sun decks overlooking the lazy river.

This house has a gated private riverfront path to the Russian river in Monte Rio, just 25 feet from the lower deck is the entrance to the winding steps down a very gradual slope to the water. The property is fenced but we recommend keeping dogs within sight at all times, we recently added a seperate stairway from the lower deck down to a 15x15 dog pen in the garden and made it secure so that our 3 pound puppy (Max) can't climb through any of the gaps in the deck railing or escape from the garden dog pen and they won't be able to chase the ducks down the river while your in the house.
Contact the owner for maps of the area, top view of the property and river level information. Guest’s can use any of the boats and life safety vests that Treefrog supplies. 2 single person ocean kayaks, 1 two-person ocean kayak and one 3-4-person canoe are included with the rental. Boat use is restricted in the high water winter months, usually between November and April.

On 4th of July weekend enjoy Monte Rio’s fireworks in privacy from the hot tub, BBQ area and spacious lawn; view the activities at the public beach from the river island or walk there in 10 minutes. Even though the public beach is nearby on the other side of the river you will have complete privacy because the Treefrog property is secluded enough that you seldom hear noise from the beach or other houses. Some of the restaurants on the river have live music and you can walk to them in ten minutes.

The riverside of the property is very private and all of the homes in the area are very well kept,
there are no houses on the right side of the house for half a mile and the closest house on the left is called Riverwood Cottage, about 150 feet away.

For availability please check the calendar at the top of this page. Reservations are confirmed within 24 hours. Please contact the owner for reservations by email by clicking the button on the right and include your phone number.
Wine tasting is nearby at the Martinelli winery on the way north east to more shops, art galleries and wineries in Healdsburg and Dry Creek road to Lake Sonoma.

Private parking included for three cars in front of the house and the same level as the main front entrance and the house, also there is a gated lower parking area for two cars.
All year the birds are plentiful but spring is obviously the best time for bird lovers. The most popular birds that frequent the Treefrog river property are Belted Kingfishers, Mergansers, Wood ducks, Ospreys, Egrets, Coots, Steller lays, Little Green Herons and Great Blue Herons. In spring you might be lucky enough to see an occasional harbor seal, some river otters and large steal head trout.
The long days of summer on the river are a favorite time for hanging out on the lawn late at night under the redwoods.
Fall still has warm days and nights and most of the tourists have gone home, but they missed one of the best times to enjoy the sunsets on the river that attract thousands of small jumping fish.
Winter can be enchanting for a lover’s weekend getaway, the large fireplace is great this time of year for a romantic mood after soaking in the Jacuzzi tub and feeling like all of your worries have washed away with the river. One day supply of firewood is provided from October through March.

Both bedrooms have unique artistic design, queen size pillow top beds, closets, dresser and comcast cable TV with DVD player. The maximum overnight guests allowed by our permit is six.
The larger bedroom with wood burning stove has a patio door that opens to the river view deck area close to the hot tub and the second bedroom also has a patio door that opens to the extra storage & laundry room area. Pillows and extra linen provided for the large sectional sofa that is so comfortable that some guest’s prefer to sleep in the living room in front of the fireplace.

The living room/dining room is spacious with vaulted wood ceilings, large dining table and six chairs, accent lighting and original artwork throughout the house created by the owner. LCD TV above the fireplace and a large sectional sofa and Blue ray entertainment. From the living room and bathroom you can access the river view redwood deck that spans the riverfront side of the house, a large picnic table and comfortable chairs make for nice outside summer dining. The hot tub and BBQ are also on the riverside of the deck, with an additional gas BBQ at the entrance area for cooking closer to the kitchen.

The kitchen has everything you will need to feel at home except food, coffee is in the freezer. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and plenty of towels. The house is equipped with an on-demand water heater so the last person in doesn’t have to worry about getting a cold shower and all of the rooms have recently upgraded heaters.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: This year I have made many changes to the property that will make your vacation even more relaxing and enjoyable. Thank all of you who have taken such good care of the house. For people traveling to the Russian river Monte Rio area for the first time there a few ways to get to the house, GPS and Mapquest will direct you off highway 101 going Northwest through Sebastopol, this is the shortest way if you are coming from the San Francisco airport. After passing through Sebastopol you will go through Occidental, a small town that should be on your list of places to visit while in the area, Monte Rio is 10 minutes after that, people who get car sick easily should be careful. A longer but more direct way if you can avoid the weekly afternoon traffic is going West on River road North of Santa Rosa, this way passes many vineyards including Martinelli winery and Korbel cellars. Ten minutes before you get to Monte Rio there is a Safeway supermarket in Guerneville for supplies. For a more adventurous trip pass through the old town of Petaluma shortly after crossing the Sonoma county line and go west to Bodega bay for fresh sea food and a 30 minute drive along the coastal beaches before you get to the Russian river, this is were River road meets the ocean, go East along the river and you will turn right onto Moscow road at Duncan’s Mills. The Treefrog house is 10 more minutes away from Duncan’s Mills. If you are flying domestically you might want to check the Santa Rosa airport (STS) “Charles M Schulz airport”.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  What I enjoy most about our property is the privacy from other vacation homes and the wildlife, especially the birds.
