Car: Necessary

Sonoma County's location has made it the most perfect place for making fabulous wines. Visitors can expect a wealth of opportunities to visit vineyards, stop by wineries and wine tasting rooms ... and to enjoy the 'fruits of our labor' here in one of the most picturesque wine country regions in the world.

Most travelers fall in love with the Russian River’s meandering course as it flows past river towns and ancient redwoods to Jenner, where it empties into the sea. Kayaking, canoeing, swimming, inner tubing, fishing, rafting and sunbathing are favorite river pastimes. You can usually spot harbor seals and shy, cow-eyed pinnipeds at the mouth of the Russian River at Goat Rock State Beach near Jenner.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: We are a quiet fun loving couple living on a property we acquired in 1981. Our property mirrors our interest in the beauty of life. We have extensive gardens with many comfortable areas to sit and take in the plants and creatures that call our land home. We have a swimming pool which we offer our guests to share with us during the warmer months when it is a delicious temperature. Our swimming pool is not enclosed. Because of this, we do not accommodate children. Our swimming pool is solar heated. Pete's Retreat is on our property and is located next to our home. There is approximately 20 feet between Pete's Retreat and our home. All of our guests have felt quite private and separate. We are the only people who live on the property and where we live is rural. We live in a 2-acre minimum neighborhood and we are backed by a 5-acre minimum area. It is quiet and private. We invite our guests to share our property with us.

Why the Owner Chose Forestville, CA, USA:
We enjoy living in a beautiful rural town surrounded by nice people.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Peaceful tranquility in a busy world is what we offer our guests.
