4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Country House With Swimming Pool Near River And Wineries

Located less than 2 miles from downtown Forestville and approximately one hour from the Golden Gate bridge, this spacious country house is centrally located between the lower Russian River with its many recreational options and the vineyards and wineries of the Russian River and Green Valley AVAs. Other Sonoma County AVAs, the Pacific Ocean, and Sebastopol are all within a 30-minute drive.

After a day of exploring all that West Sonoma County has to offer and perhaps visiting a farmer's market to obtain locally-grown ingredients, relax poolside and enjoy your own home-cooked meal using the facilities of this home's spacious, gourmet Kitchen.

Besides the Poolside Patio, there's an upper Back Deck adjacent to the Kitchen overlooking the pool where you can prepare a BBQ meal using the Weber propane grill. There also is a Hillside Patio on the far side of the pool, as well as another Patio in the Front Yard.

All the recreational facilities on the property make the Wine Country Hideaway ideal for family or friend gatherings. In addition to the onsite swimming pool, the property has a Bocce Ball Court, a half-court Basketball Hoop and a full badminton court. Or just relax on one of the two Balconies overlooking the Front Yard, with a view of the unspoiled vistas.

The interior amenities include two Master Bedroom suites, one with a Balcony overlooking the Front Yard, a king-size bed, a stone-lined stall shower, and a luxurious jetted bathtub; the other opening onto the Front Patio with a queen-size bed and a full on-suite Bathroom. The third and fourth Bedrooms both contain queen-size beds and share a common, third Bathroom. The downstairs Family Room features a 42in. flat-screen HDTV with DirecTV satellite service. The upstairs Living Room features a wood-burning fireplace, a 52in. flat-screen HDTV also with DirectTV service, a Balcony overlooking the Front Yard, and a Dining Area adjacent to the Kitchen.

Furnished with many modern conveniences in a peaceful, rural setting, your Wine Country Hideaway truly "has it all"!

Please Note: The Swimming Pool is solar-heated only between April 1 and October 31 annually. Since there is no backup heater, Mother Nature is the sole arbitrator of water temperatures.

Two HDTVs with DirecTV satellite service, DSL high-speed Internet with Wi-Fi, fully-stocked Kitchen, Weber gas BBQ grill, several Patio areas, and a solar-heated swimming pool make entertainment and staying in touch easy.

Sleeps 8 (including all children age 3 and over) in 1 king-size bed and 3 queen-size beds. The maximum daytime occupancy also is 8. Off-street parking for 3 vehicles. Sorry, but no pets and no smoking, indoors or outdoors.

                                                                  Heather S.

                                                                  I traveled to Jim's house with two other families, five kids total and the house was perfect for our group. We loved the outdoor amenities including the bocce and basketball courts. The kitchen was great for cooking and the rooms were all decently sized. Overall great stay! Thank you Jim for being so accommodating.

                                                                  Lovely home, we would stay again

                                                                  Emily T.

                                                                  We had a really lovely time here. Jim was easy to reach with questions we had, and provided us with detailed instructions on everything in the house. We stayed for the Sonoma Wine Road Wine & Food Weekend, and it was a bit rainy, so we hope to come back in nicer weather to enjoy the pool and garden.

                                                                  All four bedrooms were comfortable, and allowed each couple traveling with us to have their own space. Two bedrooms (the master upstairs, and one of the downstairs bedrooms) had attached private bathrooms, while the other two downstairs bedrooms shared a bathroom.

                                                                  The kitchen was beautiful, with a variety of pans and cookware for us to use and a lovely big dining table. Making breakfast in the morning while sipping coffee and watching deer run across the hillside was a real treat!

                                                                  Beautiful home with all the amenities!

                                                                  Helen C.

                                                                  We rented this home to attend our daughter's wedding in Sonoma. We had our adult children and grandchildren staying with us as well. We had room for everyone and we all enjoyed this home. Everything we needed was provided from towels to condiments! We enjoyed the Bocce Ball pit and there were even some horses behind the property that the grandchildren loved watching. We would stay here again!

                                                                  A perfect house to spend a weekend getaway.

                                                                  Kari W.

                                                                  We came to the area for the Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival. This house was the perfect place to come back each evening after the festival. The house was set up so conveniently for multiple couples. Loved the various outdoor seating areas. Enjoyed the rural location of this house--rural but still close enough to town that it was easy to go in for groceries or wine tasting. BBQ is a Weber, so trip tip is perfect. Full kitchen with spices and and oils. I would and will certainly go back for more.

                                                                  Perfect wine country get-away!

                                                                  Adele K.

                                                                  We loved our stay this lovely wine country property. All amenities were available and the house was comfortable and cozy. The pool and gardens were especially appreciated as we were in the area during record breaking heat. Jim was gracious and so easy to work with. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

                                                                  Restful stay in private hideaway

                                                                  Rosalyn W.

Lovely deck with BBQ and outside table to sit around and chat the time away., restful garden settings for me times.
