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.

Quiet and pleasant

  • 4 of 5

Just far enough off the main drag of Guerneville to ensure peace and quiet, yet close enough for quick access to stores, food, etc. Nothing fancy about the house, but clean and nice, meeting all needs.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as expected and described. Very simple and basic cabin feel. Had everything we needed and was reasonably priced. Only thing we would wish for was a gas BBQ grill. We plan to comeback.

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2016 Thanksgiving weekend at Ruth's house.

Honestly, we were really scared before arriving, because of a recent very bad review. Lucky us, the bad review resulted to be mostly nonsense.

Yes, it is an old house. And yes, there are lots of stuff inside. Not for you if you are looking a modern luxury hotel or alike.

But if you look for a nice place to stay, that feels like home, this is the place to be.

Everything was perfectly clean and ready to use. The owner took a good care of placing lots of notes inside the house, instructing how to use everything and where to find the stuff. Even how to build a fire in the fireplace! We loved that.

Every room had it's own heater and electric blanket to ensure you don't feel the winter. Some people may prefer a central heater system, but everything worked as a charm and we did not feel any cold inside.

The owner was always very nice and quick responding our previous questions by email. We did not need to ask anything once at the house, because everything was very well indicated, and nothing was missing.

I was intrigued about those bad reviews complaining about a ouija board... Well, the house has A LOT of entertainment resources, including music, movies, and board games like Trivial, Pictionary, etc. One of this board games happens to be a ouija game. Is this really a problem for some people? You can just ignore it, as we did.

The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because of the lack of internet and dishwasher, but this is clear if you read the description. The cell coverage in this area is pretty good, so we did not miss the wifi so much.

We will come back in the future.
