Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: For over forty-five years, Cazadero and the Russian River has been our family summer and weekend getaway. Our family vacation home holds a special place in our hearts since our parents bought it in the summer of 1969. It holds wonderful memories and it is our pleasure to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Cazadero, CA, USA:
It is a great place to come together with family and friends. The redwoods, the creek, the sunny open space, and the location are the perfect setting for a memorable vacation. Plus, it's only a two hour drive north of San Francisco. Great for a quick weekend getaway. Also, it's only a 5 minute drive to the Russian River and the charming town of Duncans Mills, 15 minutes to Guerneville, 15 minutes heading west to the scenic Sonoma Coast, and close to some of the best wineries in Sonoma County.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It’s one of those places that you have to see to believe. You can enjoy spending the whole day here. As evening approaches it becomes quiet and calm. It's the perfect setting to start a warm campfire, sit back, and relax.
