About the owner: Our family is the third generation of the original owners, my grandparents Louis and Elizabeth DeGregorio. My grandfather was a carpenter and built the original cabin in 1932, the first home in the Drakes Estates neighborhood.
Why the Owner Chose Guerneville: Years ago when a seven-mile stretch along the Russian River from Rio Nido to Monte Rio was known as 'the Irish Riviera,'my grandfather, an Italian carpenter from San Francisco, was the first to purchase a tract of river front just a mile or so from the resort town of Guerneville. That was back in 1932. Over the decades the cabin he built has undergone several dramatic changes. In the 1955 flood, the original 3-story cabin, with expansive decks & multiple guest rooms, disappeared in the torrential flood waters. We built another cabin in its place and anchored it around two towering redwood trees. Then, after the 1997 flood, we raised the cabin to preserve it from future floods and, in the process added a cathedral ceiling and two new decks.
Today, our cabin sits on a knoll above the river, just 1/2 mile downstream from Korbel Winery. Decks extend out the front and back of the second-story structure where the great room and 2-bedrooms and bathroom are located. The cabin's rustic ambiance is heightened by knotty pine walls which, in the great room, rise up 21 feet. In summer, the cabin is well-insulated to keep guests cool and in the fall and early spring a woodstove fireplace makes the cabin warm & cozy. From the back deck, one can sit in the shade beneath a canopy of bay tress and redwoods and look down upon our private beach. The front deck provides a view of the vineyards and the hills beyond that rise up on both sides of the river. Please come and enjoy De's Cottage a river cabin in the Heart of Wine Country.
