Mojo's Lair is located just upstream of Vacation Beach and the Summer Bridge, a perfect spot to enjoy the Russian River area and all it has to offer--kayaking, wine tasting, hiking, fishing, beaches, state parks, and great food!
House is at street level with easy parking and a large, level, double lot.
Private dock available in the summer, when the river is dammed (mid-June to mid-September). The dock makes getting out on the river effortless--just walk down the stairs, onto the dock, and you're on the river! Or tie off a tube and float around! Explore Durban island across the way. If you enjoy fishing, just walk to the bottom of the stairs, find yourself a nice spot and cast away.
The house is cozy and comfortable, and has terrific views of the river. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a queen-size bed. There is a comfortable, king-size sofa bed in the living room. The downstairs bunkroom has two beds (one queen and one twin), and makes a great space for older kids/teens.
There are two full bathrooms, a full-sized washer and dryer, and a gas fireplace.
Modern conveniences include Wi-Fi and 50” LED/LCD television with Comcast cable, DVR, and Blu-Ray/DVD player. There is an assortment of books, games, and videos available.
The large private lot offers both redwood-shaded and full-sun spots to hang out. Terrific views of the river from inside and outside. Deck in the middle of the property lets you lounge in the sun and watch goings on the river below.
Two Hobie sit-on-top kayaks are available for your use year-round. Both kayaks have room to bring a child or dog along. Personal flotation devices in various sizes are available for your use. In the summer, the kayaks stay on the dock. The rest of the year, you’re just a short walk from the beach and easy river access. Kayaks and tubes available year-round, with River access from the house and from Vacation Beach.
The main patio off the living room has a gas fire pit/table, a Weber gas grill, and a hot tub. Nestled along the edge of hill overlooking the river, the hot tub is private, yet affords great views of the river. The spa is serviced weekly so it is always perfect for our guests.
The patio in the side yard has a large picnic table, which is a great location for al fresco dining or just hanging out near the wood-burning fire pit. There is also a horseshoe pit.
Located in Sonoma wine country, the world-renowned Russian River and Dry Creek Wine regions with their dozens of wineries are within a 20-minute drive. If like your wine sparkling, Korbel is just a short drive away. And the capital of Sonoma wine country, Healdsburg, with over 100 wineries and a thriving restaurant scene, is approximately a 40-minute drive from Mojo's Lair.
The Pacific coast and the town of Jenner, which is right at the mouth of the Russian River, are a short drive away. Check out some of the great restaurants in Jenner, take a hike in some of the great parks along the coast, or just hang out on the beach near the mouth and watch the birds and the harbor seals.
Northwood Golf Club is just up the road—play golf among the towering redwoods. Or go hiking and bird watching in nearby Armstrong woods, and hike among old-growth redwoods. Go shopping or dine in some of the great restaurants in the area. Or just hang out with friends and relax.
As pet owners ourselves, we know how great it is to be able to take your dog with you on vacation and how hard it can be to find a place that will allow them. That is why Mojo’s Lair is pet-friendly. Mojo wouldn't have had it any other way!
The yard is completely fenced (except to the river). There is also a gate at the top of the patio to discourage pets from going down the stairs. There is a dog door in the back bedroom that can be used for small to medium-sized dogs. A pooper scooper is available for your convenience. And we designed the shower in the bath off the patio with pet washing in mind.
We are also aware that pets can get dirty, especially when playing in or along the river. Since we would really like to keep our home as clean and free from pet odors as possible, we set up the bathroom off the patio so that it will be easy to give your dog a quick warm wash in the walk-in shower, with handheld shower head. We also have a dog door in the back bedroom that will accommodate small to medium-sized dogs.
Linens and towels are provided. You only need to bring a pillow if you have a special one that you can't sleep well without ;) The kitchen is stocked with pantry basics (coffee, sugar, flour, spices, etc.)
