Monte Rio cottage description

Enjoy this fabulous very private, Russian River get-away with stunning views of the Russian River and Bohemian Grove Redwoods. This relaxing one bedroom cabin sleeps four and is right on the river. Eat breakfast on the deck while you watch the kayakers roll by on the river. Join them later in kayaks available for your enjoyment. Kayak to Monte Rio to buy lunch on the beach or head in the other direction with your picnic lunch and stop at the beautiful and secluded beach at Paterson Point. Our house is at the entrance to historic Ville Grande. If you choose, there are four bikes available to ride through Ville Grande and Monte Rio.

You won’t want to leave your stunning get-away but don't miss all the area has to offer! Travel 10 minutes to Jenner where the Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean to enjoy world-class, breath-taking vistas and visit the nesting grounds of California's harbor seals at Jenner. Check the tides for outstanding tide pooling, and/or watch the whales frolic off shore from Bodega Head. Identify some or all of those beautiful birds! Catch the sunset from the beach or from the restaurant that overlooks the mouth of the Russian River.

Golf at Northwood Course (5 mins away), an Alister MacKenzie design in one of the most uniquely striking settings in golf, and you can walk it for $20 in prime time on weekdays.

Stress evaporates as you absorb the stunning natural beauty that this area offers. Wine connoisseurs will discover new delights, which will soon become old favorites. Even tea-totalers will enjoy the artistry of the grounds and gardens of the many local wineries. Enjoy world class shopping in Healdsburg (40 minutes). There are abundant restaurants for every palate and budget. Ride your bikes to the Village Inn or take your pick of the many fine restaurants in the area.

Wander the antique shops, art galleries and unique boutiques in Duncan Mills (2 miles).

Fifteen minutes from where the Russian River empties into the pacific ocean. Stunning vistas. You are right in the heart of the Sonoma wine country.

                      Manager info

                      About: We are both educators. I also volunteer as a docent for the Sonoma County Park and Recreation Department. I speak to visitors, local school children and adults about migrating and local whales, tide pools and abundant wild life in the area. We would like visitors to enjoy our cottage as we have. The river has a remarkable calming effect.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The property is private. It has a small beach to launch kayaks and enjoy the spectacular wildlife and view.
