Park Place is a classic riverfront home, spacious and sunny. This home is ideal for families or groups of friends getting away to spend lazy, fun-filled days in our laid-back river community. This is the perfect home base to explore the amazing attractions our area offers.
At Park Place, indoors and outdoors merge. Large windows from the living areas look out over the wraparound deck and the panoramic river views beyond. There is plenty of space for lounging and dining, and a large propane barbecue. Stairs from the deck lead down to the riverfront lawn, which has a fire pit and stairs to a seasonal dock and 2 single kayaks (available mid-June to mid-September). Please note, the riverfront lawn at Park Place runs into that of its neighbor and the lower lawn decking and fire pit area spans the length of both properties.
The interior of Park Place, located entirely on the upper level, has an attractive open living space with a fully remodeled kitchen, comfortable and stylish couches, and a large dining area that can be set to accommodate 8-10 people. Doors off the living room and dining room lead to 2 bedrooms both with comfortable Queen beds) and 2 full bathrooms. From the kitchen, you'll find 2 sleeping spaces (no one has to sleep in the main living room) and the master suite. The first sleeping space has a Double bed and the second sleeping space has a Double futon. The master suite contains a bedroom and bathroom with a tub/shower combination. The suite also contains a living room with a Double sofa bed, a half bath, small kitchenette with a mini-fridge, sink and latte maker, as well as a wood stove and lovely French doors leading to the deck.
Park Place features a keyless entry system - enjoy the convenience of an express check-in directly at the home!

Fencing: There is a high fence along the road side of the property, which provides privacy and serves as a barrier and deterrent for well-behaved dogs.

Canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and rowboats that are provided in some of our homes are also available from mid-June to mid-September only.

About Russian River Vacation Homes
We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. Our Story: In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Why Russian River Vacation Homes chose Monte Rio
Welcome to vacation wonderland! Monte Rio has a great dog friendly beach along the Russian River that has seasonal canoe rentals. Visit The Rio, an historic quonset hut movie theater on the Russian River, including a cafe with great food and beer, and a sunny outdoor market on summer weekends. Monte Rio is home to the beautiful Northwood Golf Club, a 9 hold course amongst the redwoods designed by Alister MacKenzie, of Augusta fame. There is also a popular bar and restaurant on the golf course property. Monte Rio is just a short drive to the many Russian River Valley Wineries to the east, and is also a short drive west to the ocean where you’ll find scenic beaches and hiking trails. This is a great launch point for your outdoor and wine tasting adventures!
What makes this House unique

We had 3 couples here for the weekend and couldn't have asked for a better location. We visited local breweries and just hung out at the house. All the amenities were perfect for a group. We all had plenty of space and each couple had their own bathroom which is always nice. The hot tub was lovely and so beautiful to look up at the redwood trees while relaxing. Having all the dishes, glasses, pots & pans, etc made it so easy for meals. The beds were comfy and loved the wood stove---we used it all weekend! Would definitely come back again for another trip :)
We really enjoyed our girls trip at Park Place. Beautiful single story setting with river views from the deck.
Perfect for a crowd
Our big family rented Park Place to attend a wedding at the Monte Rio Community Center. It's a perfectly located, well-appointed home in a lovely setting above the river. Only complaint, given that we're no spring chickens, was the absence of grab bars in the showers, making bathing challenging for the 95-year-old in our group. Seems like an easy and smart fix for the homeowners. Otherwise, thanks for accommodating us for a spectacular weekend.
Great stay on the river
6 of us stayed for 2 nights for a staff trip. The beds were comfy, and the house was well appointed. As the river was again in flood stage, we weren't able to use the yard, but the lovely wrap around deck afforded great views of the tumultuous water and the natural beauty all around. I would definitely recommend Monte Rio as a great place to sneak away to as well. The little restaurant/bar Lucy's and Bartlett's market were a short walk away, and had everything we needed. We had a wonderful stay at Park Place
We're so glad you enjoyed Park Place! You were great guests, and we'd love to have you stay with us again!
Kick Back in River Time
It is good to know that of the 12 sleeping spaces only 6 are in private bedrooms. Two are on a double futon couch located in a wide hallway adjacent to the kitchen; 3 are in bunk beds -- twin upper, double lower (with a futon not a mattress. Our 60-yr old male guest stated was totally uncomfortable.); and 2 are on a sofabed in a room adjacent to a bedroom. These alternative spaces provide a modicum of privacy but can't be considered private since others have to pass through them to get to the kitchen and general living space. The arrangement would be ideal for three couples with children or teenagers who can sleep anywhere :). For a group of adults, the lack of privacy was a bit awkward but we all adapted. On warmer days, the dining area heats up and air doesn't circulate well in this space -- a fan would help. Maintenance is dicy; Bathrooms are clean but somehow don't feel fresh. The middle bathroom shower stall has a band of black mold about 1-2 inches wide all along the shower pan seam. Two wind socks hanging outside the west bedroom are moldy. The mattress pad on the lower bunk had a blood stain. The washing machine is probably 20 years old and so loud we had to shout to speak over the jetliner sounds during spin cycles. We sensed that the owners are trying the best they can and possibly beginners in the fine art of inn keeping. We've stayed all over the country in moderately priced rentals by owner that were impeccable. Though Park Place has a ways to go to reach that standard, we kicked back and enjoyed our 2 weeks on this beautiful river setting.
Old friends week
I invited 5 of my best gal pals to join me for a week in the redwoods. This home was a perfect match for our needs. Everyone had their own space, yet we all agreed the best part was talking in the evening as the fire glowed. We even found two coffee makers so we had decaf and regular brewing in the mornings! Very comfortable, clean, centrally located yet in a neighborhood setting.
Sonoma County wine tasting! Redwoods, river, ocean and hills.
