Welcome to The River

Part of sun-drenched Sonoma County, Russian River is surrounded by a corridor of rolling vineyards and wineries. Locals know it as "The River" and flock to enjoy the laid-back vibes and lush scenery. It's a magnet for millionaires, so why not live it up in an executive property? With spacious living areas, sparkling pools and sprawling gardens, there's no better way to enjoy wine country than with Russian River vacation rentals. The region is dotted with townships, from the culinary capital of Healdsburg to the lively resort town of Guerneville.

Things to do

Sip your way through Sonoma County

Once known for its apple orchards, Sonoma County is now prime winemaking territory. It's famous for its Pinot Noir, with wineries like MacRostie spearheading the movement. Visitors swoon over its elegant sit-down tastings and gorgeous vineyard views. Founded by the legendary film director himself, Francis Ford Coppola Winery is one of Sonoma's more flamboyant vineyards. Why not ditch the car, stretch your legs and sign up for one of Sonoma's famous sip-and-cycle vineyard tours? For a glimpse of Sonoma's arts scene, head to Guerneville Bank Club. The restored bank is now used as a community retail, gallery and cafe space.

Activities

Connect with nature in Russian River

Whether you want to swim, paddle, cycle or simply wine and dine, Russian River is an enchanting slice of California. From family-friendly canoe trips to forest hikes, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the sunshine. Planning a family getaway? Surrounded by towering redwoods, Russian River vacation rentals are the perfect way to relax, unwind and reconnect with nature. While Sonoma County is brimming with a smorgasbord of boutique wineries and farm-to-table restaurants, nothing beats a laid-back BBQ on your sun-dappled patio – accompanied by a bottle of local wine, of course.

Weather

A summer haven

Summer is high season in Sonoma County, when locals descend on Russian River. Warm weather and long sunny days make summer ideal for swimming, fishing and winery hopping. Russian River vacation rentals are the ultimate way to cool down, with private docks and breezy waterfront views. Crowds peak over weekends, including Memorial Day, Labor Day and the Fourth of July. If you prefer less crowded tasting rooms, consider visiting in spring or fall, when Russian River enjoys clear skies and crisp temperatures.

Natural features

Reel in trophy-sized trout

Flowing through Northern California, the Russian River is a haven for local wildlife. Keep an eye out for otters, osprey, turtles and great blue herons. The Russian River is also an important habitat for smallmouth bass, bluegill, catfish and huge steelhead trout. Don't forget to pick up a fishing license before casting a line. Peppered with over 15,000 acres of vineyards, the Russian River floodplain produces America's best Pinot Noirs. Thanks to fertile soil and a cool climate, the region's wines are bright, velvety and fruit-focused.
