Know Before You Book:
Damage Waiver: The non-refundable damage waiver included in the reservation charges replaces a standard security deposit. The damage waiver covers unintentional damages to real or personal property of the rental unit that occur during your stay. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3000.00. Any damages that exceed $3,000.00 will be charged to the guest directly. The damage waiver plan does not cover replacement of missing items, additional housekeeping charges, intentional damage or gross negligence, or damages resulting from a violation of the rules outlined in the Russian River Vacation Homes guest agreement. To ensure that you are not charged for any damages, you are responsible for reporting any accidental damages to Russian River Vacation Homes in a timely manner.
*PLEASE NOTE* HomeAway offers a damage protection fee during the online check-out process. This is different than the waiver that we offer and costs more for less coverage. DO NOT select the damage insurance offered at checkout.

Location: Contente is located approximately 1.5 miles east of downtown Guerneville on River Road, a busy two-lane road that connects Guerneville to Highway 101. Due to double wall construction, there is very little road noise inside the home, as well as on the back deck and lower lawn area. All outdoor living areas are shielded from the road by the home, natural surroundings and a 10-foot high privacy fence (at the front of the property only). The driveway and front staircase face the road. Please contact our office if you have any questions about the proximity of the road or any other questions about the property. Members of our staff have stayed at this home, and loved it!
Walk To: There are 2 bars, a restaurant and community pool within walking distance. (Stumptown Brewery and Tavern McHugh's are two doors down; the Rio Nido Roadhouse is less than a 10 minute walk. Both Stumptown and the Rio Nido Roadhouse have live music on a regular basis. The restaurant Tavern McHugh's is next to Stumptown.) Great Wine Country location! Korbel winery and vineyards are only 0.2 miles east. The walk to downtown Guerneville is over 1.5 miles but completely flat.
Shared Three Acre Property: Contente shares the lawn and river access with Culture Blend, a similar 4 bedroom, 4 bath home that also sleeps 14 guests. Together, the homes make up the property known as The Enchanted Forest Estate.
Please note that there is an annual event, the Russian River Beer Revival, that happens the third weekend in August. This is a weekend event at the brewery three doors down from Contente. The event has live music, a BBQ cook-off, and a lot of people drinking beer. It will be loud on the Friday and Saturday of the event.
