Monte Rio Treehouse has an abundance of character! From three stories in the majestic redwood trees to a gumball machine to a hidden bedroom, the house sits at the crossroads of adventure and convenience (River Blvd and Kingston Avenue, actually).
The historic Village Inn and Restaurant serves top-notch food and beverages directly across the street and you can mosey at your own pace to several beaches along the Russian River, tennis courts, skate park, playground, bars, other restaurants, and the locally beloved Rio Theater. Hop in the car and you're a short drive to the Sonoma Coast, a zip line adventure near Occidental, wineries and oodles of activities. Or, hang out at this much-loved cabin - cooking up a fantastic meal with local produce, watch the game, BBQ or just sip a glass of wine (or beer) under the towering trees.
On the second story, the main entrance to the house leads into a cozy living room with woodstove, large flat-screen TV, wrap-around sofa, master and second bedrooms, laundry room and full bathroom. Did you say hidden bedroom? Behind the living room bookshelf, you'll find the master bedroom with a queen bed and mini-bed (see note below), access to a balcony with propane BBQ, and a delightful spot to snuggle in for the night. Don't feel like going upstairs to the kitchen for a refill? No need, there's a mini fridge and beverage station at the bottom of the interior stairs between the 2nd and 3rd levels of the house.
The third level feels like you're perched in your childhood dream treehouse - you are way, way up in the redwood trees! This uppermost level of the home contains a delightfully remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, dining room, full bathroom and third bedroom. There's also a little deck and outdoor stairs to the second and ground levels of the home. The Monte Rio Treehouse beautifully blends modern un-cluttered décor and amenities with the rustic charm of a 1950's river cabin.
Don't forget to bring firewood and marshmallows for the chiminea! The partially fenced yard promises entertainment for both kids and adults. With a large table and seating you can dine outside or watch the kids hunt for banana slugs, stellar jays or sticks to roast those marshmallows.

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.
