About the Property

5-Bedroom, 2-Bathroom House with two Cottages close to Drake's Beach

Outside Inn is your own personal mini-resort & play-land that sleeps 10 guests comfortably. Come enjoy a very private & magical property to share some unforgettable memories with your family and friends.

Inside and out, this modern and spacious home is designed for your comfort and enjoyment. Step out to a private deck, hot tub, gas grill, and an outdoor living and dining area overlooking the peaceful and large backyard and pristine redwood forest. A canopy shades half the deck if you want to read or watch the clouds slide by on a warm afternoon, or recline in one of the lounge chairs if you’d rather work on your tan. The lush backyard is a private world unto itself, surrounded by Russian River fauna yet with enough open space for a game of soccer. Walk a short trail of less than 100 yards through redwoods to the huge soft-sanded neighborhood beach where you can spend a hot summer day swimming, lounging alongside the river, or taking the house’s kayaks on a river adventure.


Two Flats & Two Cottages
The Outside Inn is a comfortable home with two separate-entrance flats, each with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen. There are also two cozy cottages on the property: one is the perfect fifth bedroom and the other is a serene studio that can be used for meditation or as a child’s play room.

Upstairs Flat
Featuring the main gathering area of the home, the fully remodeled upstairs flat has a large lounge with a media center and comfortable sofa seating, large chef’s kitchen with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal and a huge amount of counter space, dining seating for eight, and two queen bedrooms and a bathroom. Sliding doors in one bedroom and the kitchen lead to the private deck with outdoor-dining seating for 10 or lounge areas where you can enjoy your morning coffee.

Downstairs Flat
The lower level flat features a private entrance, fully equipped kitchen perfect for creating breakfast or coffee, bathroom, family room, and one queen bedroom and one double bedroom.

Bedroom Highlights
All bedrooms feature comfortable beds with down comforters and high-quality linens and are quiet and spacious, with bedside tables, reading lamps, and ample storage space in dressers and closets.

Bathroom Highlights
Bathrooms are modern and clean with comfy towels, and a hair dryer in each.

Upstairs Lounge Highlights
After a day’s long adventure on the river and a perfectly grilled dinner, gather your family and friends in the lounge to enjoy movies, sports, or TV shows on the 50-inch High-Definition TV. Open your Netflix or iTunes account to watch thousands of movies and TV shows. The TV is also equipped with a DVD player, DirectTV with NFL Sunday Ticket, over 250 channels, and a DVR so you can record your favorite shows while on vacation.

Innside Out Cottage
A romantic cozy cottage-bedroom getaway located down the garden path through the backyard. With a double bed and sink, it is the perfect fifth private bedroom.

Backside Inn Cottage
Located toward the back of the yard, this extra-cozy cottage is a serene and private spot for meditation or a child’s play or nap room.

Special features
* Two self-contained flats with two bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen each.
*Two additional cottages; one is a bedroom and one is a small meditation retreat or child’s play room
* A gas fireplace in each apartment for cozy and romantic evenings
* State-of-the-art media options including two 50-inch HDTVs, Apple TV, DirectTV with DVR and NFL Sunday Ticket, DVD player, Netflix and iTunes access to thousands of movies and TV shows.

* Fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances, gas stove, wine refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, ultra-quiet dishwasher, full set of professional-quality pots and pans, non-stick fry pans, full set of cutlery, and any accessory you would need to create your edible masterpiece.
*Outdoor shower for rinsing off after swimming
*Home has recently been beautifully renovated including the outside deck, which also features new modern teak furniture.

Location
Away from it all but close to everything, Outside Inn is less a 5-minute drive from from downtown Guerneville and its great restaurants, shops, and festivals. The Outside Inn is minutes away from more than a hundred wineries and just 25 minutes drive from the spectacular California coast and the marine-life refuge of Salt Rock Beach. Spend a few hours whale watching on the coast or hiking amidst towering redwoods in nearby Armstrong State Park. Or just relax on your private deck while you spend quality quiet time with your friends, family, and yourself.

We love our place. We hope you do too. Please email or call us with any questions, we’d be happy to help.

Car: Recommended

Situated directly across from Drake's Beach, you’ll find a nicely laid-back sunning & swimming spot along the Russian River. Beach can be reached via a public access path off Northern (a 2 min walk).

Super-easy access to the very finest Russian River Valley wineries + a 5-minute ride to shopping, amazing restaurants and bars in Guerneville - Don't forget Armstrong Woods State Park and the very majestic Sonoma Coast!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Mila and I live in San Francisco with our dog Che. We have been in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years and we absolutely love it, in large part because of our vacation home in the Russian River Valley.

Why the Owner Chose Guerneville, CA, USA:
We had been visiting the Russian River Valley and Guerneville for many years prior to buying this vacation home and we fell in love with it. The weather, the proximity to river beaches to swim, sun tan, and relax. The people in this area who are down to earth and love this place as much as we do. When first moving to the Bay Area, we used to go to Napa Valley more, but soon after started to prefer the unique and additional amazing attractions of the Russian River Valley: the redwoods, the rolling hills and vineyards, the proximity to the ocean, and the variability of climates, depending on how far you are from the ocean. That is why we ended up buying a vacation home there. I am an avid wine collector and still co-own a wine bar. The wineries and wines they produce in the Russian River Valley are amazing! We like Williams-Selyem, Rochioli, and Lynmar Winery in particular. We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it, largely due to the amazing and private backyard, the 2 cabins in addition to the main house, its proximity to the beach, and tranquility of the neighborhood. Yet the restaurants and shopping of Guerneville is only a 5-minute drive away. You really get the best of both worlds!
