About: Charlene and Ben live in San Francisco with their two kids, and crazy Bernese Mountain Dog, Elf. We hire Russian River Getaways to provide on-site help and management.
Why Guerneville: We feel in love with the property just after getting out of the car to see it. It combines unique and stunning architecture with privacy, nature, and a hot-tub location to die for. It feels far removed from town on top of a mountain ridge - but you can get down the hill in five minutes, when you forget a prime ingredient for that perfect recipe. Please note that we hire Russian River Getaways to provide on-site help and management. They're great!
