Nestled in a grove of redwoods and overlooking a large lawn leading to the river, this cabin is a private, comfortable, and relaxing getaway.
From the large picture windows, you can view the peaceful early morning river, with fog just receding and ducks floating by.
The house is just 1 1/2 miles from downtown Guerneville and near Russian River beaches. Also nearby are Russian River and Sonoma County wineries and great restaurants. About 12 miles away is the spectacular Sonoma County coast, and 3 miles away is magnificent Armstrong Woods state park. The cities of Healdsburg and Sebastopol, offering world-class dining and great shopping, are 10 and 15 miles away.
The house's large deck, also overlooking the river, has a hot tub and outdoor seating. There's a gas barbeque as well, and outdoor table and chairs for al fresco dining.
The cabin features one bedroom with en suite bath, a second bedroom and second bath, a loft that sleeps two, a large living room overlooking the deck and river, a fully equipped kitchen and adjacent, separate dining room.
Due to winter floods the river is not easily accessible from the bank. We are in the process of installing retaining walls and a stairway to a floating dock. This will be completed sometime this summer. Meanwhile, you may access the river from a sandy beach a short walk down the street. We have kayaks available and a host of inflatable rafts and toys.
All of the modern amenities are available: These include cable TV and free WiFi, a large DVD selection and a Bose music system with an iPod dock.
It's perfect for a weekend retreat or a week on the river.
