This one level home is located on the upper level. On the lower patio, the large spa is stationed. Off the patio is a game room with a pool table and a ping pong table. A stairway leads down to a private deep water river dock with a canoe and three kayaks (2 singles and one double). Riverside Lodge is located approximately 1 mile from downtown Guerneville. The home is within walking distance to a local neighborhood beach, a 5 minute drive to Northwood Golf Course and only a short drive to the Sonoma Coast, Bodega Bay and Jenner.

DOCK AND BOATS: Riverside Lodge has 2 sit-on-top single kayaks, one double kayak and one canoe.

About Russian River Vacation Homes

We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company.

Our Story:

In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community.

Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals.

We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home is cozy, clean, and fully stocked. We spent a good amount of time on the balcony enjoying the views and serenity. Not only did it have everything we needed for making dinners in, but it was wonderful to have the hot tub and downstairs game room to enjoy. We look forward to coming back in the summer to take full advantage of the river and all the home has to offer. Cheers!

Fantastic house for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a ladies' weekend getaway and it was perfect. Nice open floor plan, tasteful decor, gorgeous deck with river view, super comfy beds (I think they were Temperpedic mattresses)... I could go on and on. Highly recommend staying here!

Good times had by all!

  • 4 of 5

I booked the Riverside Lodge for a 30th birthday get together. It rained all weekend, so our group stayed inside reading books, playing games, eating and drinking. We also made use of the hot tub! We were all envious of the kitchen and wish we could cook there all the time. Beds were comfortable and the place was very nice and clean. The view was beautiful, even with the rain. We were a little disappointed that the access to the river was not open yet (we knew it would be a possibility) and we were also a bit disappointed that the game room is not directly enterable from inside the house. You have to go outside and down the stairs to enter the gaming room. With that being said, our group would have spent little time there anyway. I would recommend the house to others.

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

The Riverside Lodge was the perfect place for a long weekend with friends! We enjoyed everything about it. The location couldn't be any better - perched above the beautiful meandering Russian River. The home has every amenity you could ask for. We rent homes often on vacation. This home was amongst the best we have ever rented. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to prepare great meals. The home was incredibly clean and well taken care of. There is a Safeway store just up the street to stock up on groceries. There are great restaurants nearby too. We loved exploring the area and spent two days in wine country which was fantastic. We highly recommend this house!

Best cabin & location ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Riverside Lodge was absolutely wonderful. Located right on the river, the views were beautiful. It had everything that we could possibly pong & pool tables, kayak & canoe + hot tub (which we never actually used, but should have!) The house was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need to prepare meals. Plus, it is pet friendly, so we were able to bring out 2 dogs.

Truly one of the nicest places I've stayed...I can't wait to go again.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 5 of my friends and we had a wonderful time. It was an ideal location right next to the Russian River, with a gorgeous view of the sunrise from the patio. We really enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and the hot tub as well. I'd definitely recommend to anyone interested in staying in the area.
