About the Property
Conveniently located in downtown Monte Rio, the Meadowview Cottages are a charming group of 3 cottages sharing the same property, with access to the river from the back of the property, and a lovely meadow area between the property and the river. Each cottage has a cozy gas operated fireplace and private deck with private hot tub for your enjoyment.
There is a pathway at the back of the property leading to the meadow, which in turn leads to the Monte Rio Public Beach. In summer, you can rent kayaks and canoes at the beach, and at the cottages we provide some inflatable mattresses, a kayak and beach chairs which you are welcome to use.
Each cottage has a full kitchen if you’d like to prepare your own home cooked meals, but there are also good options within walking distance for dining out:
The Rio cafe serves hot dogs, snacks and beer. Across the Monte Rio Bridge are the Highland Dell and the Village Inn, both excellent choices for dinner or to have a drink in the afternoon overlooking the river. Fern’s market and deli is right next door providing an array of cooked pizza's etc.
If you don’t mind driving a few minutes, the town of Guerneville is 4 miles away, and Occidental is 7 miles away; both have excellent choices for dining out. Our favorite is the Union Hotel in Occidental which serves Italian family style dinners.
For you wine enthusiasts, the closest winery is 8 miles away (Korbel champagne), and just a bit farther from that is the turnoff to Westside/Dry Creek Road, a beautiful, winding country road with picturesque vineyards producing excellent quality wines. We recommend a visit to Sophie’s Cellars, a wine tasting room 4 miles away in the town of Duncan’s Mills. They can give you tips on which local wineries to visit based on your preferences. There is also a wine bar in the town of Guerneville, 5 miles away.
There is an award-winning 9-hole golf course, Northwood, less than 1 mile away.
The coastside where the river meets the ocean at Jenner is 9 miles away. Something for everyone!
In addition to the features described above, each cottage has a queen-sized bed, skylights, gas BBQ, cable TV, and WIFI. The cabins are close to each other, but not adjoining, giving you added privacy.
We invite you to Meadowview cottages for a great Russian River weekend (or weekday) getaway!
