About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

With a spectacular river view setting, it features the charm of a traditional river home with the best of modern conveniences. Stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter with this well insulated house!

The large gourmet kitchen features granite counters, Wolf range, dishwasher, large refrigerator, and pergo floor in the large, river view dining area.

The large living room has knotty pine to show the traditional river home look, two sofas, nice 40' LCD tv, dvd, and a great river rock fireplace, light and comfortable.

A California king bed is in the upstairs room, and the two ground floor bedrooms have great queen beds, two bedrooms have river views. There is a kids cubby with foam floor (queen size). We have high thread count sheets, nice pillows, and great beds I believe.

High speed wireless internet, bring your laptop. central heat, inside washer/dryer, central vacuum, all the features of a modern home with the great riverfront setting that nature provides.

Large front yard can be enclosed for pets and kids, larger back yard has patio and lawn, river view deck, and nice steps down to the water. Gas BBQ, umbrella, table and chairs make the back patio the hang out spot. The river view deck is fun for kids and adults, seat swing and benches great for wildlife viewing.

Two Kayaks are great for river play, the water is low and slow in the spring, summer, and fall, great for enjoyment.

The lush green and river views make you and feel as far away from the city as possible, yet only 90 minutes from SF. Easy to relax and enjoy for kids and grown kids.

This is not a party house please, and no extra guests allowed. This is a strict policy, our neighbors are great and we want to maintain great relations with them. No camping, events, gatherings, or visitors without specific approval please.

Verizon phones work well, ATT marginal, others maybe not.....

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We love Rosie's and our guests do too. Great family vacation house and area. Easy to spend days here with the river, yards, and quiet neighborhood. Our kids grew up visiting there, they have fabulous memories of the "River House" !

Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio, CA, USA:
This spot on the Russian River has possibly the best weather, generally out of the fog, cooler in the summer than Guerneville, and easy to get everywhere. We are well off of the main streets, quiet and peaceful. An abundance of birds grace our neighborhood, duck, geese, egret, blue heron, finches, hummingbirds, and more. Great views from both the front and back, we are grateful to be able to be here. The coast(Jenner) is a short drive, Bodega Bay to the south and beautiful views driving both north and south. There are many places to go and sights to see, and it also easy to relax and have it all come to you at Rosie's.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I say that Rosie's is an hour(+/-) away but 100 years apart from the big city. It feels like a return to country living and still close to the Bay Area.
