Located on historic riverfront property formerly known as Angelo’s Sandy Beach Resort, now known as Grandma’s House. Four bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom (en suite). Grounds include 1.25 acres of lawn, garden, redwoods, and two separate beach areas. A large two-level deck wraps around the back side of the house overlooking the river. Other amenities include a pool table, piano, stone fireplace, and huge hot tub for your enjoyment. Usage of a canoe, two kayaks, and numerous water toys are included for a fun filled summer day on the river. In all seasons, it is a great location for a day of wine tasting at the nearby vineyards.
Two bedrooms each have a king bed and a pull out futon that sleeps one. These two rooms have a view of the river and access to the main deck. The other two rooms both have kitchenettes, one with a queen size bed and one with a king size bed. These two rooms have their own private decks adjacent to the garden. All bedrooms have their own television sets and private entrances to their rooms. In addition, the game room contains a futon bed which sleeps two.
The spacious kitchen is fully equipped with most every kitchen gadget imaginable to prepare delicious homemade meals like Grandma used to make! The charming decor is reminiscent of your Grandma's house, with handmade quilts, Bluewillow china, etc. The living area reminds you of Grandpa's hunting lodge.
The house is in a quiet neighborhood but is walking distance to a few shops and restaurants in Monte Rio. The town of Guerneville is 5 miles away. There is an award-winning 9-hole golf course nearby, redwood park for hiking, and many fine Sonoma county wineries in close proximity. The river meets the ocean about 10 miles away in the town of Jenner.
Take a kayak right from the backyard and then relax in the hot tub later than evening. Or, sip a glass of wine on the deck and watch the river go by. Come and be spoiled at Grandma's House!

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Hello, we are Stephen and Gina O'Hara. Gina is a native Northern Californian while Steve is a long way from home, originally hailing from Dublin, Ireland. We maintain the property ourselves and suggestions for improvement are encouraged. We bought the place from two very sweet ladies, Heather and Mickey, who were the real 'Grandmas'. The house was so charming and comfortable, we left it much the same, and kept the name and the decor. It truly feels like you are at your Grandma's House, and it's a place to have fun and be spoiled! We welcome you to Grandma's!
Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio, CA, USA:
We love the Russian River area for it's beautiful redwoods, sun and fun on the river, proximity to the coast and wine country, and the feeling of being far away from the city.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Launch a kayak from the backyard! The property has 1.25 acres of gardens, redwoods, and two beach areas. There is an award-winning 9-hole golf course nearby, redwood park for hiking, and many fine Sonoma county wineries in close proximity.
