Bella Ursula is an enchanting house nestled among the redwoods and overlooking the Russian River.
Bella Ursula's guests enjoy spectacular river views and an ideal combination of old world charm and modern amenities. The tastefully decorated interior features rich knotty pine paneling, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a woodstove. The house is named after the talented artist whose original watercolors adorn many of the walls.
The living room and the king bedroom opens onto a spacious, sunny deck offering views down the river. The deck features river views and a propane barbecue. Just off the deck is a separate master bedroom and bath with a shower. The kitchen, third bedroom and second bathroom with shower are located on the same level at the front of the house. A stairway leads from the lower yard to a seasonal, private deepwater dock. A canoe and two kayaks are available for scenic rides on this beautiful and peaceful portion of the river (available mid-June through mid-September only).
Know Before You Book:
Damage Waiver: The non-refundable damage waiver included in the reservation charges replaces a standard security deposit. The damage waiver covers unintentional damages to real or personal property of the rental unit that occur during your stay. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3000.00. Any damages that exceed $3,000.00 will be charged to the guest directly. The damage waiver plan does not cover replacement of missing items, additional housekeeping charges, intentional damage or gross negligence, or damages resulting from a violation of the rules outlined in the Russian River Vacation Homes guest agreement. To ensure that you are not charged for any damages, you are responsible for reporting any accidental damages to Russian River Vacation Homes in a timely manner.
*PLEASE NOTE* HomeAway offers a damage protection fee during the online check-out process. This is different than the waiver that we offer and costs more for less coverage. DO NOT select the damage insurance offered at checkout.
