Know Before You Book:

Security Deposit vs. Damage Protection:

When you make your reservation, you will automatically be assigned a security deposit, plus a $30 non refundable processing fee.

The alternative to the large deposit and processing fee is the damage protection program, which is $49 and covers up to $3000 in accidental damages. The damage protection program is an insurance policy. The $49 is not refundable, but you’d be covered if you accidentally broke a wine glass…a lamp…or if someone knocked over something major, like the television. There is no processing fee associated with the damage protection program.

If you would prefer the damage protection program, please include a note with your reservation. If you do not include a note, we do contact all guests before charging the security deposit and processing fee in order to confirm your preference.

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours:

The maximum occupancy at Riverside Lodge is 8. 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 3 vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes: Master bedroom: Queen bed with a memory foam mattress topper; Second bedroom: Queen bed with a memory foam mattress topper; Third bedroom: 2 Twin beds; Living room: Queen sofa bed

Heat Source: Central heat, gas fireplace

Dock and Boats:

Riverside Lodge has 2 sit-on-top single kayaks, one double kayak and one canoe. Boats are available mid-June through September, exact dates dependent on when the summer dams are put in and taken out. Although the stairway and dock are in place year-round, the dock and/or river may not be accessible during off-season months when the water level fluctuates.

Summer Rotation Day: Friday

During the Peak Season, which runs end of June through August, Riverside Lodge has a 7 night minimum and rents on a Friday to Friday pattern. If you make an online reservaton outside of this rotation day requirement, we may contact you about altering your dates.

Office Hours and Booking Information:

Our office is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, excluding major holidays.

After making a booking and confirming their security deposit vs. damage protection preference, guests will be sent arrival instructions and a contract with our terms in detail to sign and return. You will be contacted within 24 hours of making your reservation.

No same-day reservations past 2 pm. It should not happen, but in case the system is allowing you to book for same-day arrival and it is after 2 pm, please reach out to us. If it is after 5 pm, please do not complete your reservation; no one will be available to process your reservation and prepare for your arrival.

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.

Why Russian River Vacation Homes chose Guerneville

Guerneville is the largest town on the Russian River, and has a variety of excellent restaurants and shopping. There are many wineries within 15-20 minutes. Guerneville is also home to the amazing Armstrong Woods, and it's just a quick drive out to the coast! Guerneville is a fun and free spirited town that makes for a great getaway!

What makes this house unique

Riverside Lodge is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley and is convenient to downtown Guerneville and Monte Rio, Johnson's Beach and Armstrong Woods, and it's just a short drive the the first of many Russian River Valley wineries. The open floor plan and amazing river views make for a great getaway for your family or group of friends.

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 want...ping 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.
