Property description

We spent $160,000 in renovations on this 984 sq. ft. home to bring you a fabulous vacation experience.

There are three freshly painted bedrooms. The rooms sleep 4-6 persons with new bedding and linens. Each room has an ample closet and chest of drawers. One has a very comfortable futon, another a king size bed, and the third has two twin beds with a 1/2 bath. The newly tiled full bath features a pedestal sink and storage.

Just about everything in the living room is new: a 42' TV with cable and WiFi, furniture, carpet (also in the bedrooms), lighting, fireplace, and decorations. Walk outside from the living room and you are on the new redwood deck complete with lounge furniture and a new gas grill.

The kitchen features new microwave, cookware and utensils which can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

The property has been fully landscaped with beautiful plants, trees, and a grassy area large enough for badminton, playing catch, or just watching the kids have fun. Flood lights illuminate the backyard. Staired pathways line both sides leading to the river and a new paved parking area for 3 cars is in the front.

Beneath the deck is an outdoor concrete game and cleanup area with a shower and canoe storage.
This area, along with the backyard, is subject to flooding in the rainy season and may not be available for use.

Car: Recommended

This cozy 3 bedroom home lies in one of the most popular Northern California resort areas. We have recently renovated the house and landscaped the property to create a fabulous experience for our renters.

Our clients can enjoy the beautiful Northwood Golf Course. This scenic course, cut into the redwood forest, has been ranked as one of the top 5 nine hole courses in the country by the PGA. Special delight occurs when a golf partner clangs his/her shot off a 200+ feet redwood tree. The distinctive 'donk' sound echoes throughout the course and is sure to generate chuckles.

Once the round of golf is finished it is time to enjoy the Russian River. We have a canoe for our renters and river access directly from the property. Warm water makes summer swimming very comfortable with little or no thermal shock when entering the water. For those who love to fish, the annual steelhead run can produce trophy size monsters.

Great coastal fishing can be found at Jenner and Bodega Bay just 15-25 minutes from the property. Those towns, along scenic Hwy 1, also feature stunning views of the Pacific and tasty seafood restaurants.

Excellent restaurants abound in the area, especially Guerneville and Occidental. We suggest hitting one before your excursion to one of the many wineries located within 15-45 minutes of the house.

The home is located in the exclusive Northwood subdivision. The single road neighborhood is sandwiched between the Northwood Golf Course and the Russian River where you will find enjoyable and safe walking or jogging.

After a day of fun activities, our clients enjoy relaxing and grilling on the new redwood deck overlooking the Russian River. The renovations, completed in October, 2013, also include new TV, furniture, gas fireplace, carpet, washer & dryer, bedding, and decorations.

We invite you to enjoy our home, Northwood Golf Course, and the popular Russian River resort area.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1968

About: I was raised in Sacramento, graduated from Jesuit High School and attended my father's alma mater, Gonzaga University, before moving on to get a business degree from the University of Oregon. I ended up getting a graduate degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where I have lived for 35 years. In Dallas, I got married and worked several sales jobs before starting a physical therapy equipment company which was sold nine years later. At 50 and searching for a new career, I joined the Dallas ISD where I taught reading and social studies to inner city students for 12 years. I retired in 2013 and bought a beautiful property in need of major renovations which continue to this day. My daughter and grandkids live in Stockton, CA so they have been able to witness The Caddy Shack's transformation. We had a great time this summer working on the house, playing in the river, and golfing at Northwood; something I plan on doing 3-4 weeks every summer.

Why Russian River:
My family's love of the Russian River dates back to the 1920's. My grandfather purchased a vacation home in Guerneville and this is where my mother spent her childhood summers. My parents purchased the Northwood property as a 2nd home in 1968. They frequented it often until Parkinson's disease sidelined my father in the mid 90's. The property suffered greatly after the 100 year flood in 1986 and, after repairs, little money was spent keeping it up. When I first visited the house after my mother's passing in November 2012, I couldn't see the river due to the growth of bay trees and vegetation, two giant redwoods had cracked the foundation and destabilized the deck, and the house smelled musty. Because I am a retired school teacher living in Texas, my first thought was to sell the place. But a friend convinced me to keep it and use it during the sweltering Lone Star summers. As renovations began, they just took on a life of their own. The rental idea resulted from the constant cash outflow and hiring contractors who knew the vacation market. I had to learn to think like a hotel owner; everything had to be first-class and spotless to produce a wonderful atmosphere, both inside and out. So I spent about $160,000, triple my original budget, to make a stay at this home a wonderful experience. From the comments of many folks in the neighborhood, and the reviews from the guests, the transformation is a resounding success.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of this home means more time playing and less time driving. The river is 150 ft. from the deck, first tee of a gorgeous golf course just 1/4 mile, the incredibly scenic Pacific coast only 15 minutes, Guerneville restaurants and stores about 7 minutes, and Korbel Winery 15 minutes.
