Property description

This river front house is an architect-designed, beautifully remodelled, light, airy, private retreat with commanding views of the Russian River fading into hillsides of majestic redwoods. Amazing Deck with a high end jacuzzi with river views. The 3 bedroom and 2 full bath house is on the point, with a deck, yard, seasonal dock, and two terrific solariums for indoor relaxing. When not on the river you are one mile from Guerneville’s unique shops, eclectic restaurant scene, and nightlife with festivals, live music and theatre.
This well-appointed house offers three queen size beds and a fold out couch with high quality bedding. There are two bathrooms with soft fluffy towels for every guest as well as beach towels. The kitchen is complete for casual to gourmet dining with glassware for wine and cocktails. The house has wireless and VOIP phone with free long distance. There is a permanent all year Dock plus a seasonal floating dock that runs from June to September dependent on the Summer Dam. Kayaks, Canoes, Stand up Paddle Board and inter-tubes are available for your use on the river.
We warmly welcome respectful guests of all lifestyles and family set-ups! Your children are welcome though we hope you’ll help them be extra careful on the deck, dock, and around the river. Dogs are welcome too with careful supervision and clean-up. We hope you enjoy your stay and return often!

About the owner: Greetings! We are Kevin and Sophia O’Donnell and we are currently residing abroad as US Diplomats. Kevin is a Bay Area native and this is our Russian River dream home. We love to visit for its peace, tranquillity, and convenience to wineries, California’s many natural wonders, and our extended family in San Francisco. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. If you are planning to travel to Panama, India, Colombia, Mexico, Africa and Australia we have lived there and can give you some background.

Why the Owner Chose Guerneville:
The river, the deck, the dock, the redwoods, the hiking, the natural beauty, the pinot noir, the beaches, the farmers markets, the restaurants, the rustic charm, the hot summer days, the cool evenings, the fireplace, the morning fog, the artisan shops, the sauvignon blancs, the amazing vistas, for our kids and for the kids inside of us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can enjoy the natural beauty of this special area in an elegantly appointed house with all the amenities to make this a unique experience.
