Car: Recommended

Our home is tucked away under large second growth redwoods. We are located 5 miles for west of Gurneville CA and 7 mile east of the pacific coastline providing fantastic Sonoma county beaches. There are multiple good options for eating out. Canoeing, zip lining, golfing hiking, wine tasting are all at our doorstep, but meditating quietly under the trees is also allowed.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: The family has owned this cabin since 1964, we gave it a complete makeover in 2013.

Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio:
Jim Melville won at Keno in 1964. He bought this double lot on the river & built the cabin with the winnings. It was completely remodeled in 2013 to update it. We kept the fireplace & refinished as much mid-century furniture as we could to match the 'Groovy' butterfly roof. We all agree with Jim that this area is as peaceful & groovy as it gets

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Family fun has been happening here for more then 50 years. We sincerely hope it will continue for the next 500. Please email us with any questions about the cabin.
