Guerneville estate description

This beautiful historic property across the Russian River from quaint Guerneville sleeps up to fifteen people in four separate buildings. One large well-equipped kitchen, and three more partial kitchens. The property has gorgeous landscaped grounds, including a lawn that extends to the river, a volleyball court, outdoor shower and bath-house, large barbecue grill, one kayak for guests (and more available in town), two ridiculous pedal paddle boats, two stand-up paddle boards and a canoe. The previous owner bought the property in 2006 and had it completely remodeled with beautiful finishes, and we are continuing to upgrade the property. The kitchen in the Main House is all marble counters, and has all the cooking equipment you need to cook a gourmet meal, and dishes for twelve. Two of the other kitchens are similarly equipped, making this a perfect getaway for a holiday, a family reunion, bridal shower or any festive gathering! We have recently added a pavilion on the bluff above the water and two decks for river watching!

                      Our property is located on the beautiful Russian River very near the sunny town of Guerneville. Near the property are great restaurants, a public beach a short drive away, wine tasting, pubs and breweries, fly fishing, kayaking on the river, tubing on the river, relaxing on the lawn, volleyball, croquet and corn hole. One mile away from the house is an old fashioned miniature golf course with huge brightly painted dinosaurs. The Russian River is one of the best recreation areas in California, and Guerneville sits ON the river, close to the ocean, and in the middle of beautiful redwood forests and acres of vineyards.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We are a family of four - Mom, Dad and two daughters, age 12 and 8. We live in San Francisco, with our dog and two cats.

                      Why the Owner Chose Guerneville:
                      We have always loved the Russian River, and in summer of 2012 we found ourselves here several times, as our daughters were going to camp nearby. As we drove along River Road one afternoon, we started daydreaming about buying a house on the river. We finally contacted a realtor and told her our wish list, and she knew just the property! We knew as soon as we walked in the gate that it was perfect for us -- tons of sun, gorgeous grounds, beautiful stylish homes, and room for our extended Bay Area family. We also love sharing the property with our renters!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      The Main House and its outdoor area are gorgeous, and work perfectly for gatherings of groups. Each of the homes is graciously appointed and tasteful. We provide high quality linens, and our housekeepers are meticulous. There are birds everywhere, sitting outside and listening to them is lovely and relaxing. Kayaking on the river is a joy, and the restaurants in town satisfy all appetites! A NOTE ABOUT EVENTS Many people contact us in hopes of having small weddings or events on the property. Unfortunately, Sonoma County strictly limits the number of people who can stay on the property (to 15) and the number who can be on the property at any time (to 20). There are also noise and parking restrictions. So although it is a beautiful setting, it is really not appropriate for events. We are sorry!
