Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I started out with a friend looking for a B&B. As the story goes she got up early one morning and after listening to all the woes from the owner she said 'No Way' --'This is as hard as our regular job.' We are both nurses. I was too afraid to go it alone-- So we thought how about the B (bed) with out the B(breakfast) and that lead me to a vacation home. She eventually bought one too not very far from mine. I never heard of the Russian River except for a Chardonnay I always liked. When I was shown around the area I fell in love with the Giant Redwood trees and the Ocean Breeze and thought what a great location being close to the wineries of course but also the coast and enjoying the river. When I saw this home I had a picture in my mind of grape vines going up the long drive and Vista Serena seemed like the perfect name to gather family and friends for fun and relaxation. The 10 year old vines were planted in 2007. I am learning about pruning. Table Grapes made sense so we can all enjoy them immediately. I hope you come share my beautiful Vista and make wonderful memories to last a long long time.
Why the Owner Chose Guerneville, CA, USA:
I live in Orange County and the Russian River is a wonderful escape and change of life style. I love being able to walk to town and restaurants and shoppes. The crisp air and breeze spreads a clean scent of redwood trees to the whole area. Of course all the wineries are great but so is golf, hiking and boating/swimming in the river. There are so many choices and fun things to do each day. The California Coast in this area is beautiful. From Bodega Bay to Mendocino has unbelievable views as you drive the coast. Great restaurants overlooking the water in Jenner just 14 miles away. Some days I just sit on the deck and walk among the grape vines and Just Chill Out
The Unique Benefits at this House:

Wonderful kitchen just right for a group to cook together and never trip over each other Enjoying the River and Armstrong Woods and Coastal Views & Beaches Discovering all the cute, unique little towns in the area for Lots of Day Trips
