Recent Monte Rio reviews

  • Perfect

    "We have been coming here for years. It is perfect, river access, private dock, back yard to relax. Close to town. My favorite vacation spot. The homeowner is local and very helpful. Feels like family."

  • Charming 1940's Cottage

    "This is the second time my mother and I stayed at Emma's Cottage. Mark and John are wonderful hosts and very accommodating. The cottage is decorated beautifully with attention to small, yet important details like fluffy towels and an immaculately well-organized kitchen. Before we arrived, Mark even surprised us with a special table set up for my mother and I to play our Scrabble games. We're looking forward to our third visit."

  • Perfect rental home for large group of friends

    "Agree with nice write up by Jenny L (see below) - She did all the typing for me because I got married in Monte Rio as well and we made a long getaway weekend of it, with friends and close family. My group especially enjoyed hanging out in the kitchen and using the long picnic style farm table as a gathering point with great views of the river and mountains. The house has a rustic home-like feel, not luxurious or extravagant, but comfortable with character. There were plenty of towels for our stay. For big group of friends or a family reunion, I think it's a good value in a great location. The Highland Dell Lodge is next door and they have a nice restaurant and bar if you don't feel like cooking or driving. Jenny L's review: "I got married in Monte Rio and we reserved two of the local hotels for guests while the wedding party stayed in The Big Yellow House smack dab between the two hotels. It worked out perfectly - and a great way to see guests outside the ceremony/reception - we'd run into to them walking down the quiet street, it felt like we were all neighbors. The big yellow house has all you could ask for for a long weekend: a huge porch/balcony overlooking the Russian River, many bathrooms, plenty of beds, a huge kitchen with a great dining table/benches for large groups. Parking out front. Highly recommended for large groups.""

  • Superb

    "We had an excellent weekend away at the Riverwood Cottage. Things that I really liked: - Great view of the river - Quiet - Redwoods! - Large open area alongside the river - I had an excellent job along the road. Very pretty - Close to interesting towns and good restaurants The cottage itself is very comfortable and had everything that we needed (including internet access). Finally, I left a phone there by mistake and the owners let us know and even shipped it back to me! They're awesome. Strongly recommend this place."
