Welcome to The Grove, a world of privacy, with redwood-covered ridgetops above and redwood forests below. Perched on a hill above the Russian River, The Grove is an amenity-loaded haven for your Sonoma County stay. Is BBQing your thing? The Grove has a lovely back deck equipped with a large gas grill, outdoor dining table, bistro seating, wine barrel gas fire pit, all arranged to maximize the redwood and partial river views. Or, do you want to watch the big game? The home theatre system, with 120 inch projector screen and surround sound, is great for watching sports and movies. Looking forward to a soak in the Hot Tub? Climb into the secluded spa and look up and you will see how The Grove got its name: you are surrounded by a fairy ring of towering 175 foot redwood trees that lead your gaze to the stars. Is Gourmet Coffee your passion? Treat yourself to a European style espresso with a Nespresso pod, a cup of French Press drip or Pour Over freshly ground beans. Looking to explore? Both the Russian River and the town of Monte Rio are within walking distance. The Sonoma Coast, numerous Russian River Valley wineries and the neighboring towns of Guerneville, Duncan's Mills and Occidental are all a short drive away.
The Grove is a delightful property with two levels of ample living space, perfect for groups that want a little space to spread out. It was featured on a local blog in the article "8 Gorgeous Redwood Vacation Homes in Sonoma County."
Upper Level (entry level): The entry level has the main kitchen, living and dining room, two bedrooms, one bathroom, and the main deck. The kitchen is well equipped and well-stocked with everything needed to cook. The living/dining room has a comfortable sofa and chairs and the dining table seats 6-8. Sets of French doors lead out to the deck. The upstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and en suite bath with shower (the only upstairs bathroom). The second bedroom has a queen bed and charming French doors that lead to the side deck - the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee.
Lower Level: The lower level has a living area, kitchenette (no stove), deck, bedroom and bathroom. The lower living area has cable TV and a double sleeper sofa. The large bedroom has a king bed. The downstairs bathroom is lovely, with both a walk-in shower and a soaking tub.
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.
