Property description

Welcome to River Dream Two Bedroom Upper Suite- newly remodeled modern comfort with craftsman touches right across from the Russian River in Guerneville- a resort town in the heart of Sonoma County wine country. We have lovingly restored our home and created two two bedroom suites, all with queen beds and full amenities for your enjoyment when visiting Guerneville. Rent them separately or rent both suites (see www.vrbo.com/607929 for the lower suite) for family gatherings, reunions, event weekends-we are pet and family friendly as well.

River Dream has an open living room, dining area and kitchen with large windows, skylight and lots of natural light. Bamboo floors, gorgeous granite countertops, new appliances and art graced walls add to the ambiance. The kitchen has a dishwasher, stainless steel refrigerator and oven, microwave, blender, large slice toaster, and all the utensils you need to cook the Sonoma County bounty and artisanal products available across the county and right in Guerneville as well. We provide fresh ground local coffee, vanilla creamers, green tea, and sugars for your pleasure. We keep a selection of cooking spices and oils for you to use. We even have a Britta water filter in the fridge so you can have fresh filtered water and not have to use bottled water during your stay.

Fresh flowers greet you when you enter. A large granite slab adorns one wall and one of the owner’s wood sculptures graces the living room. Get comfy on the cozy couch and soft, cushy chair, use the provided throw blankets and relax after a big day on the river and exploring wine country. We have a flat screen HDTV with HBO and an Xfinity package, fast wifi, and board games and cards for some fun vacation time.

Each bedroom has a queen bed with very comfortable brand new mattresses, 400 count sheets, four pillows each and good lighting. There are extra blankets in the closet. There are alarm clocks in each bedroom and ample closet space. Each suite has an iron and ironing board in the closet and a laundry bag. There are also fun noodles in the closet for use at the river.

The bathroom has a large soaking tub and glass doors with master tile work and craftsman touches throughout. There are lots of towels and beach towels are provided. We also provide a hair dryer, shampoo and conditioner and hand soap, as well as cotton balls and Q-tips.

River Dream Upper Suite stays nice and cool since it is near redwoods and there are many screen doors and windows to let the breeze flow. But each suite also has two fans if you should need them. If the weather is cooler, there are baseboard heaters in all the rooms, as well as a wood stove, and it gets nice and toasty.

There is private parking right by your front door and a large deck with table and chairs, stone fire pit and barbecue with all of the barbecue utensils and we have a fire built and ready to go, along with extra firewood. It is a great place to relax and visit, bring out your morning coffee or have your dinner- under the moon and the redwood trees.

River Dream is right across the road from Stumptown Brewery-a great place to have some drinks and good food on their riverfront deck and access their beach. Stumptown is the home of the very popular Beer Fest. We are also right next door to one of the most popular resorts in town.

Guerneville and the Russian River is one of the gems of the San Francisco Bay area and many visitors come to enjoy the river, the fun bohemian vibe of Guerneville, to visit Armstrong Woods State park and the majestic redwoods, as a base for wine tasting and visiting the 100 or so boutique wineries that are everywhere in Sonoma (Westside Road, Dry Creek Road and Alexander Vallery are some of our favorite wine roads) and Napa County and exploring the magnificent Sonoma Coast and Pacific Ocean.

River Dream is close to the famed Korbel Champagne Cellars where you can meander through their beautiful gardens, take a tour of the cellars and dine at their wine country deli with champagne in hand. On the other hand, you can swim and rent canoes and kayaks at Johnson’s Beach right in town and eat from their old fashioned snack shack. Burke’s Canoes is the most popular place to rent canoes for various length trips- you row down the river and then they pick you up and and take you back to your car. There are many other outfitters that rent kayaks and do tours at various places along the river heading all the way down to the coast. You can rent bicycles as well. Guerneville is the starting point for multiple triathalons because athletes can swim, run and bike in our beautiful, recreational area. Check out www.russianrivertravel.com www.russianriver.com and www.sonoma.com for many great resources.

If you love good food, Sonoma County is the place for you. Sonoma and Napa are famous for their California cuisine featuring fresh, local ingredients cooked and displayed to perfection. Many of the restaurants in our area you can read about in travel guides and we have our share of celebrity chefs. But we now have some wonderful restaurants right in Guerneville, including Seaside Metal, Boon, Big Bottom Market, Applewood and, a little farther afield, Farmhouse Inn in Forestville and Cape Fear in Duncan’s Mills.

So come and visit River Dream- and adventure awaits and all that is missing is you!!!

Car: Recommended

The Russian River is a vacation destination surrounded by ancient redwoods in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country just a few miles from then spectacular Sonoma Coast. The Russian River offers fine restaurants, lodging, wineries, boutique stores, farmers markets, yoga, massage and joins small eclectic towns including Guerneville, Forestville, Monte Rio, Rio Nido and Duncans Mills. Burke's Canoe is a must for canoeing down the river and you can rent kayaks at multiple places along the river. Visiting Armstrong Woods State Park to walk on beautiful trails through the redwoods and join the dog walkers and joggers is another highlight of the area. Korbel Champagne Cellars does a wonderful and informative tour and they have a nice upscale deli. Pee Wee Golf takes you back to a simpler time and the burrito truck in Guerneville always has a long line. Riverbed Yoga is open to visitors, Coffee Bazaar and Higher Grounds are our local coffee shops. There is a Friday night Art Walk, many great restaurants including Boon Eat+Drink, Big Bottom Market, Seaside Metal, Trio, Hawaiian, Agriculture, Applewood and Cape Fear in Duncans Mill. Come and experience the area for yourself and add your favorites to this list.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband, Gary, and I (Donna) have lived in the Russian River area for most of our lives and at our current home above Armstrong Woods State Park for thirty five years. Gary is a local Northern California guy and I am a transplant from Miami via Colorado. We have raised all of our children in Sonoma County and they love the area so much all four of them have chosen to make their homes. Gary has been a custom home builder and sculptor and you can see his craftsman touches and sculpture at River Dream. I own a business in Healdsburg CA and make the beautiful drive through Armstrong Woods State Park to River Road and then on Eastside Drive through redwoods and vineyards to get to work. We both manage River Dream Vacation Rentals with the help of our gardener and maintenance man and it is truly an act of love that we want to share our home and this area with you.

Why the Owner Chose Guerneville:
For many years, Gary and I were owners of a very popular and beautiful resort and spa in Guerneville and we bought this property when we thought we wanted to expand our lodging accommodations. We also had a vacation rental in Jenner and Duncan's Mill at the time. After we sold the resort we rented River Dream on a monthly basis and as we saw the popularity of Guerneville and the Russian River area grow by leaps and bounds in the last few years we realized that it was time to do a complete remodel and open up as a vacation rental. And that is just what we did.! Gary is a master builder and craftsman and I do all of the financials and managing of sites like Homeaway and VRBO, so together we have a lot of experience to make this a wonderful vacation for you on the Russian River. And we both know this area so well since we hosted guests at our resort for many years, so we can act as your concierge and planner of services for your vacation. We know all of the special events that are unique to Guerneville and we love the wide variety of visitors these events bring to town. So when you stay at River Dream, you get more than a vacation home- you get our years of experience of the Russian River area and Guerneville.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love Guerneville and River Dream because we love the fun, funky and Bohemian character of Guerneville interspersed with four star dining, some of the best wineries in the world, spas, massage and even a nail salon. River Dream is in a great location right across the street from the river and Stumptown Brewery which has a great deck to eat, drink and watch the river and river access. We are right next door to Cottages on River Road, one of the most popular resorts in the area and minutes from downtown Guerneville, Johnson's Beach, Korbel Champagne Cellars and the majestic redwoods of Armstrong Woods State Park. Our house is cool and comfortable and the back patio is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area. We are very excited that the dream of offering this property, that we bought twelve years ago, as a vacation rental has finally become a reality.
