Property description

Contente is a luxurious 4 bedroom, 4 bath Russian River vacation rental. This spacious vacation home features a 3 bedroom main house, a separate master bedroom suite and a recreation room with a pool table and ping pong table, as well as a patio and a spa. The main living space has an open floor plan with high ceilings, bamboo floors, an elegant dining room, comfortable couches and a large plasma TV. The fully equipped kitchen comes complete with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Off of the dining room and 3 of the bedrooms are glass doors leading to a large, long deck that faces the river. This deck offers outdoor dining and a gas grill. All 3 bedrooms have Queen beds. The separate suite has a living room, full kitchen, private bath and master bedroom. The suite's bedroom faces the river and features a King bed and glass doors that lead to the deck.

The garage offers a recreation room (complete with a pool table and a ping pong table) and a laundry room. The recreation room is not accessible from inside the house. The back patio is landscaped and has a spa. Enjoy excellent access to the Russian River. Just walk through the gate and down the custom rock stairway, across a half an acre lawn

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.

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: The maximum occupancy at Contente is 14.

QUIET HOURS: Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

PARKING: On-site parking is permitted for a maximum of 4 vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

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 3 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 in August. This is a weekend event at the brewery immediately next door to Culture Blend. 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. The exact dates of the event will be listed on the Stumptown Brewery's website.

ADDITIONAL FEES: Cleaning Fee, 11% Taxes on Rent and Cleaning, Damage Protection - see below. Optional Travel Insurance is available at the time of reservation.

DAMAGE PROTECTION:Guests have a choice between a $49 Vacation Rental Damage Protection Fee or a $3000 Refundable Security Deposit. The Vacation Rental Damage Protection is strongly recommended and is the option most guests choose. It covers up to $3000 of accidental damage and can be used for many common guest accidents, such as an excessively dirty hot tub or pet-related damage. A $30 Processing Fee is added to reservations with the Security Deposit option

For security purposes, photos of the home from the street have deliberately been left off our website and the map feature does not show the home's exact location. The pinpoint on the map points to either the start of the neighborhood the home is located in or to the nearest major cross streets.

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!

There is a brewery, a restaurant, and community pool within walking distance. Stumptown Brewery is 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. 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.

The Russian River Valley recreation area is a great place to visit!

We're just minutes from Korbel Champagne Cellers, and it's just 15 minutes to Westside Road...also known as Wine Road! Tasting rooms include Porter Creek, Arista, V.M.L., Hop Kiln, Matrix, Thomas George, Gary Farrell...and MANY more!

Play on and in the Russian River during the summer season! Kayaks and Canoes are for rent in the area.

Stroll through the forest in Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. The serene, majestic beauty of this Grove is a living reminder of the magnificent primeval redwood forest that covered much of this area before logging operations began during the 19th century. Armstrong Redwoods preserves stately and magnificent Sequoia sempervirens, commonly known as the coast redwood. These trees stand together as a testament to the wonders of the natural world. The grove offers solace from the hustle and bustle of daily life, offering the onlooker great inspiration and a place for quiet reflection.

It's less than a 30 minute drive to the coast! Hang out at the beach and do some hiking at Goat Rock State Park in Jenner! Check out the harbor seals where the Russian River meets the ocean!

Russian River Vacation Homes

About: We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. Our Story: In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Why Guerneville, CA, USA:
Why we love Contente! - Contente is the perfect Russian River vacation home for large families or groups families. There's plenty of space for everyone to gather together, along with enough room to spread out and have your own private time. Convenient to Armstrong Woods, downtown Guerneville, and the Russian River, Contente makes a great home base for all of your area explorations.
