Guerneville estate description
This beautiful historic property across the Russian River from quaint Guerneville sleeps up to fourteen people in four separate buildings. Three full kitchens and one partial. 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, two kayaks for guests (and more available in town). 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 eight. 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!

- 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....moreless

Great place for groups!
Great place for groups!
I rented this place with a group of friends last weekend and it was perfect fall getaway. There's an amazing fireplace, tons of outdoor seating, and the lodging is split between three buildings, so we were all able to have some personal space as well as group time. It is a a mere 12 miles from the coast (we all biked to Jenner, which is a beautiful ride) and has kayaks for paddling around the river. Fireplaces kept the place warm and cozy for our fall visit, though I must say the grill (which is spectacular) and lawns and on-site river access would make this an ideal summer spot as well. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are comfortable, the decor is lovely, and the owners are responsive and easy to work with. And the hot tub is just perfect after a long ride home from the blustery coast. Enjoy. This place is a gem.

Pictures Don't Do The Property Justice!
Twelve of my friends and I stayed at the property to celebrate my 40th birthday. We had originally booked with a different owner, but when the property was sold, the new owner (Dawn) promptly reached out to provide her contact info, and was very responsive to any questions I had leading up to the trip. I loved the idea of having separate homes within the same property so everyone could have their own space, but the setup far exceeded all of our expectations. The homes on the property are close enough to one another that going from one to the other is not cumbersome, but far enough to allow everyone some personal space. Over the course of a three-night stay, we ended up leaving the property only for a half-day wine tour, and a few people made short excursions to the redwoods and into town, but the property offered so much we felt little reason to leave. We found everything exactly as described, and were able to kayak/canoe, hot tub, grill and relax on the spacious lawn. There was plenty of space for everyone, and we used the main house as a gathering place. It is important to note that there are strict noise ordinances in effect after 10pm (not just for this property, but for all of Sonoma county), which means no hot tub or outdoor shenanigans after 10pm, but we did not find that to be a problem. We stayed up late chatting in the main house, and with the doors closed nothing could be heard outside. An added bonus for we Chicagoans was the wildlife... This place is a birdwatcher's dream... I am not one, but still was amazed by the birds of prey. We were even graced with a couple deer one afternoon. In short, this is a great property to get away from it all and enjoy life with friends or family. Thank you very much to Dawn for opening her new home to us!

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!
