The Enchanted Forest property features two 4 bedroom, 4 bath homes situated on three acres of riverfront property. The two spacious homes, Contente and Culture Blend, offer sleeping accommodations for 28 people. Each home features a 3 bedroom main house, a separate 1 bedroom suite, 2 kitchens, a recreation room and a spa. The main living spaces offer high ceilings, hardwood floors and a large open living/dining room. The fully equipped kitchens come complete with new appliances and breakfast areas. Many of the rooms, including both living rooms and 6 of the 8 bedrooms, feature glass doors leading out to large decks facing the river with outdoor dining and gas grills.
Both homes offer large garages with recreation rooms. Culture Blend has a pool table, ping pong, foosball, air hockey and video games. Off the patio is a spa with a gazebo. Contente has a pool table, ping pong table and a spa on the patio above the yard.
Enjoy excellent access to the Russian River from this riverfront property. Fishing, swimming and boating opportunities await just a short walk away. To access, walk down the custom rock stairway and across the tree-filled lawn to the short path leading to a large river beach. During the summer months, 2 boats are included (1 canoe and 1 kayak).
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.
Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at Enchanted Forest Estate is 28. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.
Parking: On-site parking is permitted for a maximum of 8 vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.
Boats are available from mid-June to mid-September only when the summer dams are in place. The river is usually too swift for boating in the winter and many docks and beaches are under water until late spring.

Location: The Enchanted Forest Estate is located approximately 1.5 miles east of downtown Guerneville on River Road, a busy two-lane road that connects Guerneville to Highway 101. Due to double wall construction, there is little road noise inside the homes. The back decks, lower lawn area, and all outdoor living areas are shielded from the road by the homes, natural surroundings and a 10-foot high privacy fence (at the front of the property only). The driveways and front staircases face the road.
