Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with river dock, boats, Walk to Russian River Beach!

Eric's Landing is a wonderful riverfront home with plenty to entertain. With a pool table, 2 flat screen cable TVs, open floor plan, BBQ grill, outdoor dining, great river and redwood views, this basic yet comfortable vacation home is a haven for fun and relaxation. In the summer, the dock on the river is the perfect place to hang or launch the 2 kayaks and canoe that are provided mid-June through September. Or, walk two doors down to the neighborhood beach. Eric’s Landing is just a mile from Guerneville and close to Russian River Valley wineries, Armstrong Redwoods and the Sonoma Coast.

The open living, kitchen and dining area, the BBQ deck, full bathroom and both bedrooms are located on the upper level. The dining table comfortably seats 6, and the two futons in the living room are oriented towards the large wood-burning fireplace, 40 flat screen TV with cable and DVD Player. Large, river-facing windows dominate the room and sliding doors lead out to a fully-enclosed BBQ deck that overlooks the river. The fully-equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, electric stove, toaster, microwave and coffee-maker, is open to the large living space. A bar counter with three stools offers a place for people to hang out with the cook. Down a short hallway, doors lead to the bathroom and bedrooms. Both bedrooms have queen beds. The master bedroom has a 32 flatscreen cable TV. The bathroom has a large bathtub/shower and a his/hers vanity.

On the lower level is a 2 car garage and a rec room with a pool table. Off the pool table room, there is a second bathroom. Outside, the large yard has a picnic area and a hammock under the redwoods. A path and stairs lead down to the seasonal river dock. The path to the river is, in part, the natural river bank and these are not easily accessible for everyone. If you have questions about the river access, please contact our office.

The river dock and boats are available mid-June to mid-September, when the summer dams are in place.

There are two great beaches near by (both less than a half block walk). Downtown Guerneville is a flat mile, and it is an easy drive to the coast and to a number of Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley wineries.

Know Before You Book

Security Deposit vs. Damage Protection:

When you make your reservation, you will automatically be assigned a security deposit, plus a $30 non refundable processing fee.

The alternative to the large deposit and processing fee is the damage protection program, which is $49 and covers up to $3000 in accidental damages. The damage protection program is an insurance policy. The $49 is not refundable, but you’d be covered if you accidentally broke a wine glass…a lamp…or if someone knocked over something major, like the television. There is no processing fee associated with the damage protection program.

If you would prefer the damage protection program, please include a note with your reservation. If you do not include a note, we do contact all guests before charging the security deposit and processing fee in order to confirm your preference.

Office Hours and Booking Information:

Our office is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, excluding major holidays.

After making a booking and confirming their security deposit vs. damage protection preference, guests will be sent arrival instructions and a contract with our terms in detail to sign and return. You will be contacted within 24 hours of making your reservation.

No same-day reservations past 2 pm. It should not happen, but in case the system is allowing you to book for same-day arrival and it is after 2 pm, please reach out to us. If it is after 5 pm, please do not complete your reservation; no one will be available to process your reservation and prepare for your arrival.

Docks and Boats

Docks and beaches are seasonal only and available from mid-June to mid-September providing the summer dams are in. Boats are also available from mid-June to mid-September only. The river is usually too swift for boating in the winter and many docks and beaches are under water until late spring.

About Russian River Vacation Homes

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

...everyone wants to do it again next year. 5 of 5



The home was well equipped for all our needs and for entertaining guests. Best of all was the convenient dock and the boats. At this location the river is placid and smooth, ideal for the kids learning how to kayak for the first time. Proximity to nice sandy beaches easily reached by kayak or canoe made for great afternoons on the river. I was very pleased with how the property management arranged for easy arrival and departure.

Wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a simply wonderful vacation at Eric's Landing. The house was well equipped and comfortable. We initially had concerns about the size of the house since we had friends staying with us, but it proved to be big enough for all of us, including our dogs who were very safe in the fenced yard. We especially liked the location. While it is advertised as close to beaches, don't let possible noise be a concern. It was quiet and really wonderful.

My only concern about the place was that, when we arrived, the canoe and kayaks were all in the garage. The slope to the river was steep with a significant turn thrown in. I would have been happier not to have to get the canoe, especially, down the slope.

Unhappy Customer

  • 1 of 5

We were surprised that the dock was so difficult to get to. My mom was not able to walk the over 2 feet drops to get to the dock, therefore we were not able to use it. The house has two sliding doors but no screens. It was very hot in the house because we could not keep the doors open due to the bugs. We did use the fans in the family room. But that cause a horrible smoke smell. The downstairs area smelled of mold, the windows must of never been washed as the spider webs were so bad we could not get the windows open to air out the smell. The second bathroom is not accessible from the house, be sure you know that. We will not return and will not recommend this house

  • NOTE: We use an automated system that integrates the VRBO/HomeAway booking engine with our own reservation software. This is generally a good thing; calendars and rates are more accurate than they ever have been and are becoming more reliable every day.

If your reservation seems to go through for less than the stated night minimums, or if the rental rates or availability seem too good to be true, be aware that the system may be experiencing an integration issue and your reservation may not be accepted. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
