A Romantic Retreat on the Dramatic Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley
Our beautifully restored 1930's cottage is a charming escape in the quaint seaside town of Jenner By The Sea. Located where the mouth of the Russian River widens to meet the Pacific Ocean, this is a nature lovers paradise with miles of scenic hiking trails, extraordinary kayaking, bird watching, fishing and surfing all at your doorstep. The mouth of the river is a Marine Sanctuary and the home to an abundance of wildlife including Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles, Harbor Seals, Otters and Osprey - just to name a few.
The property has multiple decks with plenty of areas for lounging and enjoying the spectacular views including a private hot tub deck, which is the perfect spot to end your day with a glass of wine as the sun sets. A meandering staircase leads you down to the riverfront where you can launch your kayak or canoe for a trip around Penny Island or take a picnic across the river to Goat Rock State Beach.
Whether you are soaking up the sun on the large deck or spinning records in front of the fire our 450 sq. ft. cabin with a cozy bedroom nook is all the space you need for a perfect getaway.

About Lila Brown
I grew up amongst the farms and vineyards of Sonoma County. After 20 years away I am back and enjoying all that Sonoma has to offer from the dramatic coast to the rolling hills and vineyards.
Lila Brown purchased this Cottage in 2015

A Vacation for the Senses
We had a wonderful stay at La Cabina. I was worried it would be cramped or maybe a bit kitschy. But in person the decor was next-level adorable. Retro yet fresh. Clean and relaxing. The perfect amount of space for two people. Clever sleeping nook curtains enabled us to sleep in without being bothered by the sun.
We cooked all our meals, and would have liked to have known exactly what to expect in the kitchen. The vintage stove was a privilege to cook on. The toaster/convection oven was just large enough for a Safeway frozen pizza. The grill was bigger than expected. We missed having a microwave.
The retro-styled turntable has a CD player and AUX input. There was a wonderful selection of music. Being forced to unplug (wifi is limited) and simply listening to music while enjoying the view was so rejuvenating. It’s had a lasting effect on how I choose to spend my time in the weeks after our stay.
The hot tub at La Cabina has a heavenly view. You cannot beat La Cabina’s location right where the river empties into the sea. Watching the river and sky change throughout the day was enchanting. I loved the gorgeous flower bed. My husband had a blast kayaking and drawing.
La Cabina is among my favorites of the many places we’ve rented. It’s one of a very short list of places I intend to rent again. Lila and Jeff are amazing hosts.
Lovely little cottage by the sea with spectacular views and thoughtful touches throughout the home.
Another glorious weekend in this little magical slice of paradise. We had the unfortunate mishap of my husband forgetting to load 90% of my luggage, which could have been upsetting, however, once stepping onto that balcony and basking in the sun and sea air, I didn’t care about the luggage any longer. An added and thoughtful bonus to this property is that there are some toiletries available and it was all I needed, so thank you so much for that. The weather was glorious and there is a new wine tasting room right next to Cafe Aquatica called Tasting By The Sea. Gregory was delightful and the view is unbeatable. We can’t wait until we come again. Until then we will be missing our little cottage by the sea.
Wonderful River Front Cottage
The well loved little cottage is an ideal location for relaxing on the Russian River. It is clean and came well stocked with all that we needed for a three day, quiet getaway. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return.
My Fiancée and I stayed at this lovely property and had the most magical time. The cottage is beautifully appointed and has so many fun and unique features such as the stove from the early 1900’s, record player and claw foot tub. Everything has been so well thought out and the property shows pride of ownership.
We loved the quaint town of Jenner and nearby Bodega Bay. We definitely recommend getting fresh oysters or any other fresh fish available at the fisherman’s markets and prepare a delicious meal in the well equipped kitchen.
If you plan to spend your time outdoors we recommend the Pomo Canyon trail and you’ll surely have to take out the kayaks for a one of a kind adventure. We were joined by seals during our time kayaking in the Russian River.
We hope to return one day to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you so much Jeff and Lila!
A very special place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming cabin.
Beautiful, quiet getaway
This is my second time here and I absolutely adore the place! Situated right on the river, it provides beautiful views without you even having to leave! Of course, the ocean is just a few minutes away, but you can actually see it from here!
The decor and setup is charming! The kitchen is well stocked. Also some music is available and books! No cell service for me here, by as a small business owner, I welcomed the quiet. Still had access to wifi if needed and there's a landline in the house if you need it.
Just a lovely place! I am grateful for the time I got to recharge and plan my 2018 calendar in peace and tranquillity!
Our property is located at the mouth of the Russian River. It is a perfect location for exploring the Sonoma Coast as well as the Russian River Wine Valley.
