Overview

About the property

Cozy, Cute Cottage Overlooking The Russian River And Redwood Hills

Less than two hours from San Francisco on the Russian River (but a world away!) -- near vineyards, redwoods, and the Sonoma coast. This cottage sits on a quarter acre of sunny riverfront property in a quiet neighborhood just west of Monte Rio.

The house offers two comfortable bedrooms. The smaller one has a double bed, bamboo floors, French doors that open directly onto the deck, and gorgeous views of the sunrise over the river and redwood hills. The larger has a queen bed and carpeted floors.

The open kitchen is equipped with a gas range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and all essential implements (down to the candy thermometer!). Cook up a storm with fantastic local ingredients -- I can offer recommendations on great places to pick up meat, produce, and seafood.

Just so you don't have to worry about it, I provide olive oil, salt, pepper, and a few other essentials. There's also an herb garden just outside the back door.

There is a large, sunny dining and sitting area just off the kitchen. It's the perfect spot to lounge, enjoy a glass of wine, and admire the views of the river and hills. The living room has a wood burning stove to keep things cozy on winter evenings.

The large back deck offers plenty of room for lounging in the sun and watching the river flow by. The hot tub is perched on the edge of the deck with great river views. It is wonderful for stargazing at night and birdwatching in the morning.

The house has flower gardens with seasonal roses, lilies, daffodils, fuchsia, irises, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, and California poppies, to name a few.

I've only owned the house since the end of 2012 and have been working to constantly improve it. If you're looking for an impeccably posh experience, this might not be the place for you. But if you can handle a few (mostly charming) imperfections in a very functional and fun house, then it will be a great fit. I welcome any feedback you have on what I can do to polish this diamond in the rough, and hope you can come back to watch it evolve.

Enjoy your escape at the riverside retreat!

About Adam Klaus

I'm a Midwest transplant who has lived in San Francisco for over 10 years. I enjoy weekend escapes to my vacation property in quirky and beautiful West Sonoma County. Interests include gardening, progressive social change, enjoying nature, and oysters and rosé on the deck.

Adam Klaus purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Adam Klaus chose Russian River

I've been visiting the Russian River area since first moving to California. I love the eclectic mix of people and the beautiful nature. It's easy to get to from San Francisco but feels a world away.
