About Arthur Friedfel
I have owned this house for over thirty five years. Raised my three sons here. It is now time to move forward and I have decided to make my lovely home available to other families to enjoy. I have a life time of cherished memories and hope you will create some for yourselves. I am now retired and decided to travel some and explore new areas.
Arthur Friedfel purchased this House in 1980
Why Arthur Friedfel chose Guerneville
I purchased this property to raise a family and enjoy the beautiful areal, it was my primary residence for over thirty years. It is a perfect location with fantastic views of the river and redwood mountains.
What makes this House unique
My house is a large home with many varied areas. It will allow room for several different events to happen at same time. Located on the Russian River that they dam up for summer. It is like having a large lake in your back yard. Fishing, boating and swimming are just a few steps out the door.

Beautiful home with amazing views
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Camellia house. The owner is fantastic- he makes sure you have everything you need for a pleasant stay. Spacious, well-kept home right on the Russian River. My family and I will definitely return.
Great for 3 Families with Young Children
We just enjoyed a weekend celebrating a few 40th birthdays with our young children and had a fun Easter egg hunt on the big lawn. The kids enjoyed playing hide-and-seek with lots of places to hide!
We will be back to enjoy the river when it is hot enough. We spent the rainy weekend relaxing inside the cozy, roomy house, cooking and baking and visiting the nearby Downtown (recommended downtown eats: Nimble and Finn for ice cream and pie, Big Bottom Market for sandwiches, Boon if you have no kids, the taco truck at Safeway) and Armstrong Redwoods.
Next time we will keep kids at opposite ends of the house from where adults will stay up late as we kept them up the first night. Plan to walk through one of the upstairs bedrooms to get to the sunroom where large group dining happens. This was no problem for us, but might be good for you to know.
Monte Rio is also a fun place for the kids to dig and throw rocks and wood into the river with a nice play structure nearby and seems to be dog-friendly. Arthur is a wonderful and accommodating host.
Beautiful home with everything you need
Arthur's house is adorable and cozy and has everything we needed for a wonderful long weekend. The two common areas (one upstairs, one downstairs) made it easy for kids to have their own space and the bedrooms are warm and comfortable. And a great hot tub too! Arthur was gracious and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!
Big funky house with lots of room for friends!
This house is great for large groups and has a great location. Everything worked well, the house was stocked, and the owner communicates quickly and honestly.
Beautiful large home in the perfect location!!
Our group of 12 had such a perfect weekend together in this beautiful large home right on the river!! The dam was let down this late in the year, so the river level was a little low, but we still had a great time floating and dipping in the shallows!
The house is very roomy and had many great common areas for us to all gather in. The bathrooms and rooms were all very kept and clean and there were plenty of towels to go around. There was a very convenient bathroom on the side of the house so you don't have to run into the house while out on the river or hot tub. We BBQed all of our meals and baked desserts in the kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed.
The house is located very close to everything Guerneville has to offer. We did brunch at Garden Grill and lunch downtown. Safeway was close by for grocery needs. We also ventured to Johnson Beach for some night time fun!
Also, Arthur is the best!!!! I locked ALL of the keys in the detached room in the back and he came immediately to the rescue after I anxiously called him. I also left my phone charger after check-out and he called immediately to let me know and offered to mail it to me. I guess the best part of all of this is that I got to meet Arthur and we'll definitely be back for another stay at The Camellia House!
