Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1 & 1/2 Bathrooms, 2 Blocks From River, 5 Minutes To Main Street

Comfy four-bedroom house with yard, sunny porch, and fireplace - a quick walk to Drake's Beach on the Russian River and close to downtown Guerneville, tucked in a quiet neighborhood.

Open floor plan of kitchen, dining room, and living room are great for hanging out with friends and family. Knotty pine walls make this a warm, cozy retreat in winter. Cross breezes and ceiling fans keep you cool in summer, when you can dip into the river just two blocks from the front door.

Ruth’s Riverhouse

  • 1 of 5

Ruth was wonderful to work with. Friends and family I’m sure, love staying at Ruth’s Riverhouse, but our first impression was not good nor did it change throughout our stay. Our suggestion is to update VRBO with current pictures inside and outside.

Loved the location!

  • 4 of 5

Easy booking and checkin. We liked the location near the river and town but located in a quiet neighborhood. It is a cozy and rustic house and I would recommend it for groups that don’t mind minimal amenities. Some maintenance and clean up are needed.

Not exactly cozy or casual.

  • 1 of 5

Someone clearly lives in the house and I respect that. I would recommend this rental for men interested in kayaking or fishing the river. This is not a house for women or children.

The heater does not work, most fans do not work, the window treatments are broken, curtains are hanging by push pins that fall down with the slightest breeze, no coffee maker or internet. Parking is limited and can really only accommodate one car.

Shower had 3 slivers of used soap.

On the positive side, the beds were comfortable and there is a beautiful rose bush in the front of the house.

Owner's Response: I am a bit puzzled by this review. The fans do work, although she may not have located the wall switch in the living room. And the heater works....I am not sure what she means about that. Yes, I do live there. I vacate the house for guests and try to leave it clean and well supplied. I do not have a coffee maker at present because a guest broke the glass pot. But I have several cones and paper filters, so coffee is quite easy to make. I will try to attach the curtains in a more permanent way for future guests. I am sorry that this guest was not satisfied. I try hard to have a comfortable home base for guests. This is not a hotel-like place, but it is great for families and groups. And most of our guests have enjoyed it.

Very Good

  • 4 of 5

Property was very clean and met our needs just fine. The fireplace in the main room was fabulous! Kitchen is small but well equipped. The location was very convenient.

Only criticism is that there was a fair amount of “stuff”. So hanging things in closets and putting things in drawers was tough.

Overall it was a very good stay and my family created a lot of wonderful memories. We would stay there again.
