Held my 40th birthday with assorted friends and family at the River Queen. Awesome venue and great house with plenty of history. Kayaking from the back yard a definite plus. Pool table came in handy, but the upstairs sun room also proved very popular.

The Perfect getaway for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The River Queen exceeded all of our expectations! We had a wonderful family weekend getaway with 10 adults and 4 kids and never once felt crowded, yet it still felt very homey and cozy, and was a perfect spot right on the river. We wish we had more than just a weekend to take advantage of all the fun activities and games they provided (ping pong, pool, hot tub, kayaking, etc.) and are definitely keeping this on our list to come back to. The property management office was always very responsive to our questions and provided immediate service when we had a small toilet clog on a Saturday. Highly recommend this house for any large group gathering!

Great Place for Group Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group (15 people) and this was the perfect house for a 3 day weekend. It everything we needed and more - kayaks, canoes, games, pool table, hot tub, etc. The kitchen was well stocked and organized, and everything in the house actually worked and was easy to use - which isn't always the case with rentals :). We put the kayaks and tubes to good use, form the dock right on the property. Amazing location on the rive, with great views of the sunset. Really can't say enough good things - house is old, but with tons of charm and space!

Definitely would use again and recommend to others!

Need of Repairs

  • 2 of 5

A group of 15 adults stayed here for a week. The bedroom/bathroom situation was not good. For 4 of the bedrooms you have to walk through one bedroom where a couple is sleeping to get to another bedroom. You also share the same bathroom which is in the front bedroom. The septic system seems to not be able to handle multiple showers and toilet use and back ups which caused the bathroom sink to clog along with water from one toilet leaking and soaking the floor. Mold was on the floor and up the walls of one shower. The laundry room was filthy and not well kept. You half to stand on a step ladder to put detergent in the washer. The common areas are nice and big. Nice big table in the kitchen for a group. This house could use a lot of repairs and upkeep.

The bedroom situation would be best for parents and a couple of kids rather than adults.

Owner's Response: We have removed this cleaning team from the house and replaced them with a more experienced team + an extra cleaner, and this will not happen again. River Queen is an historic home, so it is always a work in progress, but the owner loves the house and takes good care of it. The septic system normally works well enough; it just needed pumping, which has been done now. The bedrooms and bathrooms are detailed on the house webpage, which should always be read carefully for this kind of information. Guests can also call or email with any questions. -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
