Quiet neighborhood in a lovely sylvan setting. Neighbors enjoy their privacy and quiet. Please be respectful.
  • Great stay! Just what we needed for a night away from home. It was a little difficult to find so I would definitely recommend arriving when it is still light out! WiFi worked but roku did not so bring some extra entertainment if you are stuck inside :) Very clean and quiet space

    David2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The room is beautiful decorated, clean and the bed is really comfy! Sadly there were no plates or cutlery which is a little inconvenient. Nevertheless we had a really nice stay:)

    Deep forest, **extremely quiet**, Hot tub tucked into the forest, Koi pond, water sounds, romantic and cozy yet so very private. The Russian River is a short drive, walk or hike down the hill.
    Tucked away on a hill top, quiet, a place to come to to relax. The back yard is natures paradise with a small trail to Koi pond and a hot tub to enjoy.
    Monte Vista Terrace is a small country road, one lane road, in order to enjoy such a remote property, the road is the sacrifice to get here. safe for walks and hikes. All of the neighbors are friendly and helpful.
  • Ken is the most hospitable Airbnb host I’ve yet to experience. He was quick to respond, gave us cooking essentials that we forgot to pack, and even gave us some chocolate cake he baked for a birthday we were celebrating. I highly recommend staying at Ken’s house. The property is breathtaking, and soaking in the hot tub surrounded by redwoods is out of this world. Thank you again Ken!

    Ashley2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful, quiet, private place. Kenneth was quick to respond each time i contacted him. The bed was super comfy. The room was warm and cozy. We stayed 3 nights and 4 days and loved every minute of it. We enjoyed the firepit and the soft tub. The property is soo beautiful and tucked away in the forrest. We even had a grey cat come and cozy up w us several times. We loved it and would love to return again another time. Perfect anniversary trip.

    Jamie2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ken is the best host you can ask for. There is an amazing hike within walking distance of the stay. The hot tub is kept very hot and feels great during the night. You get your own patio. The ceilings are low, but the place feels so comfortably and cozy. You will be very pleased if you stay here. Will be coming back.

    Brent2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kenneth's place was very cozy and inviting. There was a bottle of wine waiting when you enter and it was very clean. He was communicative, there was reserved parking, and we felt welcome. The hot tub was great and the fluffy cat that visited was a bonus. It's the perfect retreat with a host that's thought of everything you'll need!

    Marissa2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place if you want to getaway and get some peace and quiet and enjoy the beautiful surrounding nature. It’s a cute cozy place to relax. Our host was very welcoming and super quick to reply to our questions. My boyfriend and I will definitely come back in the future!

    Bricia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Kenneth’s place is truly wonderful. Nestled in the trees, quiet, cute and well appointed. Everything you need is available in the apartment including multiple towels, robes and cooking utensils. You can wake up and watch the sunrise from bed and it’s wonderful. The walk down to the hot tub is lovely and siting amongst the trees while soaking is truly amazing. Kenneth himself is the consummate host. It was our short honeymoon and we arrived to a some food treats and a cake to celebrate. He was kind, available and just really lovely. The only thing to be careful with is that the ceiling is low.. if you are over 6foot you can’t stand! When we mistakenly hit our hand on the ceiling Kenneth came right down thinking we had called him up...that’s how nice he is! Extra bonus there is a cool cat who just loves hanging out!

    Magali & Fred2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place. It is nested in the woods and has the most amazing setting to wind down. Host was great. He offered many amenities that made our experience even better. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Dev2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great host. Exactly the place you need to go if you need time to rejuvenate and relax. Will definitely be going back. Thank you!

  • Beautiful! Clean and cute cabin in the woods. We stayed in March - it gets pretty cold in the house make sure you bring firewood!

    Natalie2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful serene setting. Comfy homey feeling. Every amenity you could need. Super clean.

    Rhonda2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cherie's place is indeed a redwoods retreat. Such a cute cabin on the side of the hill. Quiet and secluded, with easy access to Guerneville and then on to Healdsburg and other winery areas as well as the coastal redwood park.

    Chriss2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot nestled in the redwoods. Everything was exactly described and exceeded our expectations. The only downside that I could bring up is the lack of parking but this is somewhat expected in the area. If you only have one car though this is perfect! Would highly recommend.

    Eric2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This space is beautiful! Great location! Peaceful and relaxing!!

    Jacqueline2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was simply amazing !!

    Keisha2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful lay out and big window views of the redwoods. Loved the living room and balcony. Favorite part was having my morning coffee in the hammock outside and having breakfast on the balcony table.

    Sarah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with a beautiful view. Most comfortable king size bed ever! 4 different outside sitting areas. There’s a fire pit, a deck, another deck with great sunshine, a porch hammock swing, a back area you can see the stars from. It’s very relaxing.

    This is paradise. Come stay in our cozy, private studio cabin set in a beautiful meadow in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The meadow borders the Russian River where we have a large, private beach for your enjoyment. We also provide kayaks for you to use to explore the river and experience your own national geographic moment. The cabin has all the amenities for cooking your own meals plus outdoor seating and dining complete with a charcoal barbecue for grilling a gourmet treat.
    This is a snug little place and we've done our best to provide enough storage for your needs. There is no washer or dryer but if you plan on a long stay there is a laundromat located ten minutes away in Guerneville. Also, while the cabin is in located in a private meadow, we have cranky neighbors who like their privacy about 100 yards to the east and sound travels at night so we ask our guests to not play loud music or be noisy, particularly at night.
    The cabin is approximately 10 minutes away from the coast. And don't miss the "Gold Coast" coffee and pastry shop or The Duncans Mills General store located 5 minutes to the west.
  • Nice little place. This is more of an "outdoors" place. Plenty of place to roam and enjoy and great access to the river. It is small (but very functional) and the sofa bed is the only bed, so take that into account.

    Chris2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Unbelievably cozy and fun getaway on the Russian River - scenically beautiful, great local bars and restaurants, comfortable and clean accommodations, and a morning swim in the river!

    The health and safety of our guests, homeowners, and employees is our number one priority. Many of our vacation rentals minimize person-to-person contact with private amenities and entry via smart locks or lockboxes. Plus, each reservation is backed by 24/7 customer support and expert cleaning in line with current CDC guidelines.
    Gorgeously tucked away in a grove of soaring, fragrant redwoods, this cottage provides a peaceful retreat in the artistic hamlet of Villa Grande. This woodland oasis, which sits 500 feet from a beach on the banks of the Russian River, offers an open living space with custom woodwork and lovely touches of vintage architecture, a beautiful deck and gas grill to enjoy beneath a canopy of trees, and a wood-burning fireplace to curl up to on chilly Sonoma County evenings. What's nearby: This home sits within a short stroll of a community beach on the Russian River, one mile northwest of the amphitheater, the riverfront park, and the wonderful Lightwave Coffee and Kitchen in the heart of Monte Rio. The Northwood Golf Course - which has a great restaurant with freshly baked pies - is less than two miles east, and the tiny community of Duncans Mills - where you can dine at the always delicious Cape Fear Cafe or Blue Heron Restaurant and Tavern - is five miles west. Take a drive to explore the eclectic shops and restaurants in downtown Guerneville (six miles east), admire the rugged beauty of the ocean at Sonoma Coast State Park (10 miles west), or spend a day (legally) foraging mushrooms at Salt Point State Park (27 miles northwest) before catching the sunset at Timber Cove on the way back. Things to know: Free WiFi Full kitchen Dogs up to 20 lbs. are welcome No washer/dryer * Please note that there are two security cameras on-site: one outward-facing camera on the front deck plus an outward-facing camera on the front porch (both with listening capability). A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.
  • This a gorgeous cabin in the redwoods with all of the comforts of home. We were so thrilled to find a place where we could bring our two small dogs along with us. The beds are comfortable and the wood stove is especially cozy. We will definitely be back.

    Matthew2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great home. Special space with care taken in decor and general feel. Management company feels a bit “corporate” in communication which was unlike the feeling of the home itself, so that felt a bit off. We very much enjoyed the home though and the cozy feel it had.

    Leila2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely time here. The wood stove and living room are so warm and nicely spaced with the couch there. We spent a lot of time in that room. The kitchen is also well design - ends up being a social space - with WONDERFUL lighting - skylights in the bathroom and kitchen and living room and master bedroom - wow. Convenient location next to the river and close to Monte Rio. I took a nice run in the morning along the river to Gold Coast coffee. Peaceful among redwoods. Would definitely return. Great place for two couples to stay.

    Find us on instagram @tworiversretreats and www.tworiversretreats.com Located high in the redwoods of Monte Rio, the Crow's Nest provides a birds eye view of the old growth forest surrounding the property. Take in the stunning views from our patio, the hot tub, or through the many large windows in the cabin.
    With its open floor plan, and airy design, the Crow's Nest invites you to relax in an environment that both captures and emphasizes the sublimity of the massive redwoods which envelop it. The spatiality of the interior, its many windows and doors, creates a texture that feels both in and of the vistas surrounding the property. Hardwood floors are featured throughout the house, adorned with all manner of rugs, to complement the woodsy quality of the property. The pellet stove, and assortment of blankets, encourage residents to get cozy by the fire and take in the ambiance of the area. The kitchen is fully stocked with modern appliances and cookware. We have a french press for that burst of energy in the morning, or make a smoothie in our blender. Engage with each other while you cook on our stools in the kitchen and then find a place on our patio, under the stars, to enjoy your meal. Our picnic table seats 4 and is perfect for intimate meals. Our master bedroom is situated in the loft area, the capstone of the property. Skylights and windows create a seamless transition between inside and outside, giving you the best of both worlds: sleeping under the stars while also being able to swaddle yourself in the creature comforts of the bedroom. Whether that’s on our queen sized bed, or the couch, feel free to stretch your legs. The downstairs bedroom is dual purpose, complete with a full size murphy bed that opens and closes depending on your needs. Step outside the french doors to the wraparound veranda and discover just how close you are to nature. A main feature of this house is the redwood that bisects the portico and injects the deck with life. A separate brick patio offers a fire pit and plenty of seating. Gather around the fire, relax, and enjoy the scenery. Our hot tub lies further down a path in the woods. It’s remote, surrounded by a chapel of Redwoods, and perfect for relaxing. Take a morning dip, an afternoon respite, or sip cocktails under the stars. The Crows Nest can accommodate a maximum of 4 guests, with parking availability for 2 cars. Per Sonoma county legislation, all fires must be extinguished by 10pm and quiet hours are enforced between 10pm and 7am.
    From the property, you have captivating views of the Redwoods. The Russian River flows 15 minutes from the door, is easily walkable, but the return is steep. The river is dog friendly, and amenities in the quaint town of Monte Rio include kayak and canoe rentals, Lightwave Cafe, Bartlett’s Market, and the historic Rio theater. We share our neighborhood with many great neighbors, including foxes, deer, a wide variety of birds, and so much more!
  • Super cute place tucked away in the Redwoods. It was so relaxing and also decorated really fun. We would love to come back!

    Alexandra2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is PERFECT! A stylish cabin hidden away in the redwoods. It was cozy and quiet but close to Guerneville if you needed to stop in town. I needed a weekend away from Downtown Oakland and am so lucky to have found the crows nest. Holly and Cheri were both very friendly and quick to respond. Thanks for making this weekend a perfect getaway

    Erica2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • You will be pleasantly surprised by all the details. Holly’s space is amazing!

    Anna2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely serene. The hot tub, the decoration touches, and the vibe was just all amazing. Would recommend to anyone and will come back myself

    Tianne2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so charming I kind of selfishly wish I were the only one who knew about it. But it provided my boyfriend and me with a blissful, romantic couple of days and I think everyone deserves a little bit of that magic in their lives. The hot tub was sublime and the space is just perfect—from the secludedness to the decor and layout. We are also quite active in the kitchen and cocktail-making department and were relieved to see the kitchen had everything we needed—including a cocktail shaker for making margaritas! We were also appreciative of how easy it was to get to the place, especially considering how secluded and peaceful it felt. We're definitely coming back in the summer!

    Cristabelle2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had high expectations of The Crow's Nest from friends, and we were not disappointed! We had a glorious two nights in this beautiful cabin in the woods with our Pomeranian, Memo, and had a great time. We were very comfortable and appreciated all the thoughtful touches. You can tell that they have really thought about the guest when creating this space. The deck was even bigger than we expected, and it was lovely to spend time outside. The climb up to the front door was more challenging than we expected, but well worth the effort.

    Jennifer2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing, beautiful place with lots of unique touches. Clean, comfortable, and charming. Great host, would highly recommend.

    Nicholas2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Crow’s Nest is hands down one of the best stays I’ve ever had. It’s truly a wonderful little cabin tucked away in the trees. Holly and Cherie were great hosts- they were very responsive, provided clear instructions for check-in and check-out, and suggestions for activities in the area. I can’t recommend this stay highly enough.

    A classic 1905 riverside home in beautiful and historic Villa Grande. It retains its original character and charm. Minutes walk from one of the best beaches on the river. This home offers a tranquil, beautiful retreat, free from life's distractions. A few minutes walk from Patterson Point Preserve Beach, this home is located away from the main road, and despite being surrounded by majestic redwoods, gets morning and afternoon sun.
    Enjoy morning and afternoon sun on the front porch while having breakfast or lunch. Original Douglas fir floors, beamed ceilings, antique furnishings, wood stove insert. Round oak dining room table expands to accommodate 6 people. The back bedroom has a queen size oak bed with a very comfortable European Sleepworks mattress.

Enjoy a warm bath in the large clawfoot bathtub in the bathroom. There is a fold-up cot which can be used as an additional bed. A Weber charcoal grill is located in the back. The home is an older home and thus will appear less clean than a newer home.
    Riverside is located in the hamlet of Villa Grande, within the town of Monte Rio. You are only a few minutes walk to a short trail leading down to two beautiful river beaches. Enjoy a walk around the historic homes nestled among the towering Redwoods. The town of Monte Rio offers small town charm and amenities, including a d public beach with kayak rentals, a small grocery store, an historic quonset hut movie theater and cafe with nightly showings of first-run movies.

It is a scenic 12 minute drive to the beautiful Sonoma County coast, where you can enjoy a great meal at River's End or a drink on the balcony overlooking the ocean and the mouth of the Russian River, or Goat Rock State Beach, a home to a colony of seals.
  • A fine place to be for a few nights. Exactly as described.

    Charles2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Rustic, very quiet house located among the redwood trees and overlooking the Russian river. Definitely "off the grid" for us AT&T users but there is a stereo with FM radio. Good place to catch up on reading and napping. A short walk into Monte Rio and short drive to other nearby restaurants, grocery store and hiking. River access is just down the road. Check out the book in the living room which describes local history (trees, railroads, quick sliver, tobacco, etc). Rick was very helpful proving dining options and things to do in the area. We had a very nice time - just what we wanted.

    Charles2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming, somewhat dated little cottage just west of Monto Rio. There is no direct river access (some bushes get in the way), but there is nearby access at a public beach. The cottage was cozy and we appreciated the kitchen with many implements, etc. All in all, it was a nice time.

    Chris2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This rustic house on the river was perfect for us. It was unexpectedly enjoyable to tune out modern technology, -phone, tv, WiFi, and just enjoy the surroundings. Richard’s place has all the things you need to enjoy your trip. The kitchen was stocked full of spices and cooking essentials. Nearby river access was easily accessible. Waking up in the bedroom by the back was truly a treat. The river view and redwoods can’t be beat. I love Richard’s selection of vinyl records in the living room. Turn on some nat king cole and enjoy the river view and dinner on the back porch. Richard was pleasant and easy to communicate with. He was very hospitable and went the extra mile to make sure we were well taken care of and we appreciate it. We will be back!

    Jenny2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Richard's place was perfect for exactly what our group needed.. Access to the river to float and a nice place to gather for meals! We had such a relaxing weekend and Richard was more than accommodating and responsive when we had questions about the area. I would love to stay here again!

    Rachael2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Richard’s place is super cute with a well-stocked kitchen and a bright and cheerful space. The nearby beach was lovely and not crowded, with warm water. Richard was very communicative and provided clear instructions for everything and lots of insights into local activities.

    Kat2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Unique house with plenty of space, beautiful surroundings! Very lovely place to stay!

    Barbara2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a wonderful experience staying at Richard’s place. Great place to take it easy and enjoy the river. Richard is very responsive and provides guests with clear house rules and helpful local tips. Recommended!

    As of now, and until May 4th, 2020, Sonoma County will not allow vacation rentals to book short-term stays to the general public. Please see the Important Notice Regarding COVID-19 below. Thank you! Perched on a hillside in the Monte Rio Terraces, this cozy one bedroom cabin is surrounded by soaring redwoods, and beautiful views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Pet friendly, sleeps up to 4, with a short walk to the beach and groceries.
    IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19: Sonoma County has a Shelter-In-Place Order currently active through May 3rd, 2020 at 11:59PM. The Order states short-term rentals (hotels, motels, Airbnb, Vrbo) are prohibited from use. During this time, we can only allow reservations for the following very specific reasons:  Lodging to protect the Sonoma County homeless population;  Lodging for Sonoma County residents displaced and cannot return to their residence that must isolate or quarantine or is at an increased risk of serious illness.  Lodging for a Sonoma County resident who needs to isolate or quarantine and housing support for COVID-19 related essential functions, such as First Responders. We are currently taking reservations for dates starting May 4th onward. In the event that Shelter-in-Place orders are extended and your reservation is cancelled as a result, you will be refunded in full. Get out of town and come check out a sweet, cozy cabin under the redwoods! You'll love the privacy, sweet aromas, and the soothing sounds of the flowing creek next door! AND, if you're a lover of IPAs like me, a special treat may await you in the fridge! But please let me know several days ahead of your check-in date so I can remember to stock it up. Here's what you'll experience at my Charming Cabin, sometimes referred to as "The TreeHouse": Excitement builds as you climb the gentle stairway that reveals the three wide floor-to-ceiling windows of your hilltop aerie. Once tucked inside the romantic wood-paneled warmth, you will stay cool and relaxed – it’s always at least 10 degrees warmer below in town - and nighttime often offers exceptional opportunities to snuggle up with blankets – to read, write, play, or just daydream about what tomorrow holds. The TreeHouse cabin has a wide-open feel that combines old world charm with a contemporary aesthetic and a fun, retro 50s kitchen that’s both a little bit kitschy and way classy. The kitchen retains period charm and gets some updating with a sweet eat-in dining area. As with the rest of the house, the windows look out into the redwoods with additional light provided by the kitchen skylight that opens to the stately trees above. Fully equipped with wireless internet, phone, and television, the TreeHouse allows you to plug-in or tune into almost any century. The large overstuffed leather reading chair seems to invite you in with your hard-cover book, iPad, Nook, or last year’s stack of old magazines, to sit next to the wood burning fireplace and imagine a wintertime reverie. One surprise may delight those seeking a different kind of getaway: located in the living room, a hidden secretary writing desk ready for your laptop. A best-selling book and scores of known essays have been penned here. With two decks and an upper picnic/sitting area, there are plenty of outdoor spaces to enjoy the surrounding redwoods. The side deck affords the most intimate and private space with comfortable lounge chairs. Perched high above a soothing hillside stream, the forest sounds can be heard while taking in a lazy afternoon. Terraced behind the TreeHouse at the top of the property, is a sitting area anchored with a charming redwood picnic table. It’s the perfect place for larger outdoor snacking, family meals, and unwinding with your favorite beverage! Situated high above the street, views of the remote lightly traveled hillside road are buffered through the trees providing a delightfully secluded feel. A charming home that's perfect for 2-4 people (the sofa folds out for additional bed space), the TreeHouse is nestled in an array of trees as fragrant as they are majestic. Welcome to a new experience, one you’ll likely want to make a lifelong tradition!
    The TreeHouse spot is truly magical. In fact, the whole neighborhood is. A forest cover of evergreens (mostly coast redwoods) provide a constant feeling of shade throughout the day, with a coolness of temperature that's constant, and fog that's sometimes present. Light changes (sun does break through in several places), throughout the day, provide a variety of experiences. Textures, colors and aromas will greet one as they stroll the narrow, winding roads throughout the neighborhood. The Terraces has friendly neighbors and visitors (several with sweet dogs). It's a cool place.
  • Wonderful space in a beautiful location!

    Kayla2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our 2 day stay here. David’s instructions were very accurate and we had no trouble finding the cabin. It was very clean, comfortable and cozy. The bathroom is very small, especially the shower. For a weekend it works, but not a longer stay.

    Gloria2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • David's house is great! It's nicely situated next to a creek for added peacefulness and privacy. The fenced yard is a terrific bonus if you travel with a canine, as I did. We took several walks on the quiet roads around the house, and down to town and the public beach. The floor-to-ceiling windows display a lovely view of the redwoods, and you can enjoy them up close too from the three outdoor spaces. The house was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is snug, but comes with plenty of towels. The kitchen is well-stocked with pots/pans, silverware and plates. David was a great host -- communicated quickly and provided thorough directions. Would love to stay here again!

  • The Treehouse is great! It’s perfect for two people and very cozy. It’s off the main road and canopied by the redwoods so it’s very cool and quiet. David was excellent at providing local tips and answering any questions that we had. We would definitely love to come back!

    Brooke2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • David was a fantastic host and the Tree House is a special spot. I can see now why many people love this peaceful getaway nestled in the woods.

    Sam2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved David's place. We spent a relaxing weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We were very comfortable, loved the fire and the gorgeous surroundings. Our dog was super comfy there too. I appreciated David's recommendations of places to go. We recommend Coffee Bazaar 100%, and they also let dogs inside! Armstrong Redwoods is breathtaking, but the woods around David's house are also stunning. We can't wait to come back in summer to enjoy the deck!

    Jules2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • David is an amazing host - quick responses, understanding, great local tips, and truly wants all his guests to feel welcomed. The space was a bit smaller than we anticipated, but WOW the community it is in. Definitely take a long stroll around the neighborhood just to stare at the houses and breathe the fresh air. Quick walk to an adorable downtown. Definitely head David's advice and do not drive to the property in the dark... he isn't saying that for nothing. Amazing space and I cannot wait to return!!!

  • A very beautiful cabin in a very secluded spot. Could not have been in a nicer, cute town with plenty to do around. There is a small creek next to the house that you can hear all night and is very peaceful. Be very careful on the roads up to the cabin, the roads are a little old and going up my cars oil pan broke. Luckily there are plenty of nice mechanics around. I would stay again, and I will. Absolutely gorgeous.

    "This is one of the most special places on Airbnb." - Beau, August 2017. "A most sublime space, location, feel, aroma. Spoil yourself and take advantage of one of the most peaceful and beautiful spaces I have been. More specifically, the comforts - beds, pillows, views, kitchen, etc. all are five star." - Tim, Oct 2015
    Featured on the TV show “Tiny House Hunting," s02 e11. Contemporary, comfy home with hot tub overlooking the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. Modern living amidst ancient redwoods. Said one guest: "I haven't been this at ease in years." See why "I am convinced Robert's place is the best airbnb ever." "PERFECT. I can't wait to come back." "MAJOR PROPS for the speaker system." “I've probably already taken 200 photos from your deck." “I haven't been this pleased and at ease in years." “You have the most lovely and righteous oasis in the woods." “Feeling so lucky to be here." "MAGICAL" This really special and lovely home is under 90 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge (without traffic...). Fabulous, tasteful, well-maintained, and totally modern, the house is built into a hill in the redwood forest and overlooks the Russian River Valley. The thoroughly contemporary "cabin" is located near the little town of Monte Rio, CA (about 3 miles west of Guerneville). There is nothing better than sitting in that hot tub overlooking the pristine beauty of the gorgeous russian river valley. The place is great for a couple or a solo traveler who just wants to chill out in a really beautiful and special place. About the place. The house is about 720 sq ft and thoroughly modern with an ingenious use of space.The "loft like" bedroom is atop a spiral staircase. From the bed are redwood trees framed by skylights. Linens are provided. There is a large deck with a table for outside meals, and there is a wonderful hot tub. The hot tub will take several hours to warm up after you arrive and will get up to 104 - the manufacturer does not let the tub get hotter than 104. The hot tub is treated between guests and fully serviced on Wednesdays so if your visit includes a Wednesday the hot tub people might show up and we can let you know ahead of time at what time to expect them. There are two couches outside as well. The speaker system for the excellent indoor/outdoor stereo system really enhances chilling out on the deck. The place has a very modern kitchen with an electric stove. There is a gas grill on the deck, and we try to provide enough propane for the grill. You will find the usual implements of cooking destruction. Some guests bring and leave spices and oils and some things accumulate (mustard, oregano) and others go quick (olive oil). Just to be safe, if you love to cook you can bring what you know you need, or check what's been left first and just replace what you use. You can walk down the hill to a lovely beach on the Russian River, and the walk takes about 10-15 minutes. If you are walker, you can walk about a mile to Monte Rio where there are a few restaurants, cafes, and bars (some only open in the Summer months). Guerneville, which has more restaurants and bars (including 2 gay bars) is about 3 miles away. In Guerneville and Monte Rio you can also rent canoes or kayaks for a day on the river. In the other direction, you drive along the river and in about 10 minutes come to Jenner and Goat Rock State Park, a spectacular park where river meets ocean. Bodega Bay is quite close as well. Charming Occidental, with great breakfast spots, is a short drive. You are also near the Northwood Golf Course, Armstrong Woods Park, and easily more than 50 world class wineries. Plus hiking all over the place in this overwhelming beauty. Unlike many local listings, you get the comfort of knowing we obtained a vacation rental permit that mandates the 2 guest limit. So no additional guests and unfortunately no children or pets either. Thanks in advance for understanding. Note that only Verizon and Sprint have a cell signal here. Also note that the "heater" option is not checked. There is no heating in this house! There is a wood burning stove, and we recommend buying wood if you would like a fire. There is kindling provided but if you might have trouble starting a fire in a fireplace, we recommend bringing Duraflame logs with you. You'll be glad you did. The house lets in abundant light. This is by design! This is noted because some guests may want to bring an eye mask. This place is a great opportunity to just chill out, go explore Sonoma county, taste wines - whatever you want. Many guests don't ever even want to leave the place at all. The house is gorgeous, and the area spectacular. You'll love it! Guests have access to the entire house and surrounding property, including the hot tub, outdoor gas grill, and speaker system. Plus it is an easy walk to the Russian River for sightseeing and summer swimming. The hosts are not present during the visits from guests. When booking is complete, we provide an access code to retrieve keys to the house and we email a "welcome letter" with house rules and suggested activities in the area. We are available 24/7 by phone and check email frequently, but try to leave guests alone. The "neighborhood" is a 5mph country road that winds through a redwood forest. There are not many neighbors and the folks you do see out walking are friendly. The best thing about the "neighborhood" is the scenic walks, the proximity to the Russian River and surrounding activities like hiking, swimming, biking, great restaurants, and, of course, wine tasting. Parking is included, and a car is required. Note that a large SUV will have trouble navigating the narrow country roads. SPECIAL NOTE: Friday and Saturday bookings must include a 3rd night, either Sunday or Thursday, unless the Thursday or Sunday is already booked. Last minute exceptions can be accommodated when possible.

  • This place is truly a gem. The photos are great, but the actual experience far surpassed our expectations. A stunning view, a truly *perfect* outdoor living space, great amenities, relaxing interior spaces, well stocked kitchen, private, and clean! Thank you for an amazing getaway!

    Crystal2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place. 😊

    Wendy2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly amazing. My only regret is that I didn't bring food with me so that I didn't have to leave at all during stay! I was considering spending the day wine tasting, but once I saw the incredible deck and realized that I could spend the whole day there, I completely changed my plans. I did leave to head down to Sonoma Coast State Park to watch the sunset, which I definitely recommend. Also, heed Robert's advice and do not drive to the house for the first time at night (if you can avoid it). The drive up is like nothing I have experienced, and I was very glad I wasn't doing it for the first time in the dark. Thanks, Robert! I look forward to coming back to this relaxing getaway!

    Katherine2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is adorable and the deck is breathtaking! We loved our stay! We are recommending it to all our friends.

    Shannon2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Robert's place is exactly as described by all the other reviews. It's important to note that the ONLY source of heat is the fire that you build when you arrive. Without fire you will not have a pleasant or comfortable stay in January when the temperatures reach the low 40s at night. That being said, we burned through 6 bundles of wood that we purchased at the Safeway in Guerneville. We supplemented with some of Robert's wood, but you will definitely need to bring your own.

    Lanette2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Robert's place was amazing! It's quiet and secluded, had everything we needed, and we loved the hot tub and the fireplace!

    Through your own private entrance, set on the side of a hill and above the river sits your peaceful private oasis. Leave your high heels behind and travel 70 miles north of the Golden Gate to your private master suite, bathroom and deck among gardens and redwoods. Close to wineries, hiking trails, quaint towns and the coast. Get ready to relax and create beautiful memories at Snug Arbor.
    Along a pathway, down stone steps sits your private space below the main cottage. Low-key casual - decorated in a style I call "Flea Market finds Pottery Barn and bumps into Don Draper ". If this is just what the doctor ordered, please continue. Vintage chaise lounges get great afternoon sun. Or if you decide to stay snuggled in your feather mattress topped queen iron bed, that's ok too. There is a bath tub for two for soaking, (not a jacuzzi) and a seperate shower. There is also penty of closet space. You enter and leave through French doors ready for a much needed life - off the beaten path in a place where time has forgotten.
    This is a wonderful eclectic and safe neighborhood. Clusters of small cottages and cabins hug the hilltop along a narrow single country road above the river and under beautiful Redwoods. Close, but yet far away. You access your private suite down steps and pathways. There is a sunny deck to relax on and headlamps are provided should you want to take an evening walk. Snug Arbor is walking distance to a few restaurants, grocery stores, a movie theater and river beaches. Keep in mind, you are on a hill, so if walking up and down hills and pathways seem problematic, take your car. You are a short drive away to Guerneville, Occidental, Duncans Mills and Jenner for more dining and shopping options. The Russian River Valley encompasses more than 15,000 acres of grapevines, 35 varieties of wine and 110 wineries. After a day of wine and great food, take to nature on the many beautiful hiking trails through the redwoods or coast. Both the ocean and canopy tours are less than a 15 minute drive.
  • We took a spontaneous little trip to get away from our normal routines. Marys place is just right for getting into nature. Located near Russian River on a hill in the woods, very romantic. We enjoyed waking up to the view of trees in the windows and winding down the night in the tub. The airbnb description matches to what Mary described, and everything was nice and tidy. Read Marys instructions on arrival and do be mindful the way up the the house is a one way street, steep and windy. Thank you Mary

    Anastasiya2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's place is super cozy and in the middle of so many great little towns. We had a great stay. Heads up the jets in the tub don't work and limited hot water by the time it fills up. Be sure to the try the fish and chips at cape fear cafe! It's uhhhmazing

    Waleed2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's directions were right on point! Read the message she sends you and you'll be just fine! Great location for lots of things in the area!

  • Marys place was extremely clean and well organized. She shared great local spots and had a kind smile.

    Joey2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely weekend at Mary's place. She is communicative and helpful. The view is amazing and we spent quite a bit of time just enjoying the deck. Everything was as described. Driving to the coast or to any of the neighboring small towns is easy (and worth it). As we were leaving, we both said, "I think we'll be back. . . " :)

The place is very well equipped, has a very nice deck with grill, a small garden with a hot tub, complementary kayaks to use, and the river is just a few mins walk. Really quiet, under the giant redwoods – perfect getaway to relax and recharge.

  • Tom’s house on the Russian River exceeded my expectations- beautiful views of the river and the abundant wildlife there from a seal to an eagle and a pair of deer on the sandbar. The outdoor pizza oven and fire pit down by the river were amazing as well and the house was very comfortable .We look forward to returning again!

    Welcome to River Haven, a spacious, newly furnished riverfront home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a “Birds Nest” loft, game room, home movie theatre, deck and access to a private beach on the most scenic and private part of the Russian River. In the quaint hamlet of Villa Grande, you'll escape noisy River Road, and be minutes from Monte Rio, Guerneville, Duncans Mills and the famed Bohemian Grove. Enjoy a chef's kitchen, farmhouse table, fireplace, clawfoot tub and cozy European bedding.
    The front of this property is in an ancient redwood grove, the back facing an open sunny garden with wildflowers galore stretching to the river. Huge picture windows frame the living and dining room, bringing the outside view in. A wind-screened deck out back with patio seating, a windbreak and cafe lights makes for a tranquil riverview hangout, watching the birds in the daytime or the stars at night.
    This is a quiet street in tiny riverside hamlet called Villa Grande. It is on the other side of the river from River Road, so very quiet. Many of the homes are occupied by fulltime residents who have lived there many years. Who would want to leave? You can paddle or rent kayaks from nearby Monte Rio beach, but the neighborhood also has its own smaller beach, which is great for floating, sunbathing, swimming or just taking in the views.
  • Great and cozy house with large windows and direct views on the river. The warm sunlight was hitting the house and the deck in the afternoon and made the deck enjoyable despite the not so warm temperatures! The house is spacious, with a large upstair area for playing, working out and bunk beds. Corinne was very thoughtful about the space and made the stay and check-in as easy as it can be. Make sure to save the entry code before getting there as you may not have cellphone reception.

    Justine2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Two thumbs way up! Super comfy beds and bedding, delightful views of the river, warm heat, comfy living room couches, big dining room table that was great for group meals and bonding, kitchen had everything we needed and more, Netflix. Hiked the nearby redwood forest and had easy access to supermarkets within 5-15 min driving. Took advantage of the workout room and thoughtfully placed yoga mats. Everything simply worked, and we enjoyed our time a lot!

    Esther2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Corinne’s place. It is very well equipped with everything you might want and tastefully decorated. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to cook real meals. There were games to play with the kids and the huge open room upstairs had ping pong, foosball, yoga mats and comfortable seating for watching TV. It was too cold to enjoy the deck out back, but the large windows provided a lot of light and a nice view of the river. The large redwood trees right next to the house are amazing. Corinne has put a lot of care and attention to details into the house.

    Julie2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for letting us stay in your great home! The beds were super comfy, the kitchen was so well-outfitted and labeled, and we all had a great time! And the beach was only a 3min walk away!

    Diana2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice family house in the Russian river!

    Clemence2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Corinne’s home is great for a weeekend getaway. The porch has wonderful afternoon sun. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and utensils. Comfortable for three adult couples in the downstairs rooms, and a great kids room upstairs with bunk beds, a projector, ping pong table, etc. The house is a short 5-10 minute drive from Guerneville restaurants and Safeway.

    Will2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I are regular visitors to the Monte Rio area and have stayed at many airbnbs over the years; we've never found one that was perfect, so we always just choose based on availability and proximity to the river. But honestly, now that we've found Corinne's place, this will most definitely be our go-to rental when we visit the Russian River! As soon as we walked through the front gate, we just had to pause and take in the majesty of the enormous ancient redwood in the front. The house is truly gorgeous and thoughtfully decorated, everything feels brand new and luxurious in a very functional and comfortable way. We are a family that loves to eat and cook so even on vacation, we spend most of our time in the kitchen. This kitchen was huge and fully stocked, we were so inspired that our group consisting of our family of four, another couple and a friend decided to have a fancy dinner party! This was such a treat because the large kitchen table overlooks the deck, a beautiful garden and of course the river (this house is right on the river). The back garden is stunning, open and sunny ( a rarity in the redwood forest) with so many flowers in bloom, herbs that we picked for our meals, and meandering paths overlooking the river. There are no fences, but it is planted so that is feels very private and like a true wildlife haven - we never saw any other people in their gardens, but saw so many birds, bees and ladybugs, our children spent hours crouched in the garden watching the insects. The biggest surprise at Corinne's home was the giant loft upstairs. This space is great for all but I found it especially incredible because my children were entertained for hours (and I was able to cook uninterrupted). The loft has a projector connected to apple TV so we made popcorn and the kids felt like they were at a real movie theatre (and when the kids went to bed, we did the same thing). The upstairs loft also has beanbag chairs, a couch, a foosball table, a ping pong table, yoga mats with a large mirror and bunk beds (as you can tell by all that I've listed, this space is huge). Another great perk is that there is an adorable beach which is just a few houses down and then a 5 minute walk through a beautiful forest; we swam in the river at this beach every day and had a great time. I can't recommend this airbnb enough - we are actually going to book a full week for the end of the summer for our yearly get together with our extended family!

    We are a ten minute walk to the beach, downhill and a ten mile drive to the ocean at Jenner. Another ten minutes inland is Guerneville, gateway to Armstrong Woods. This is Pinot country. Westside road hosts some of the best Pinots and varietal wines in the world. The views of the vineyards are spectacular on a drive towards Healdsburg. We are just up the hill from the Bohemian Grove and a world away. We have spotted Eagles hovering above the redwoods. On a clear night there are a million stars viewable from the hot tub. We have a great movie theatre recently digitized. Lots of dining options if you don't like to cook.
  • Had an amazing time at Bohemian Groove! Catherine was an amazing host! The house was impeccable! And extra special with secluded areas including a bamboo ensconced hot tub and horseshoe rink. BBQ was flexible with gas and charcoal. This kitchen is ACTUALLY well stocked! A real gem!

  • Catherine's is a lovely, comfortable, secluded cabin to escape to, tucked amongst the trees. It's tucked at the end of a maze of winding lanes, ascending a hillside, but easy to find with her careful directions, and/or Google Maps access. Could have spent the entire trip in the hot tub.

    Damon2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, clean place set back deep in the woods. Stayed a couple nights for the Bodega Chowder festival and had a great time. Would absolutely stay here again. Anything better than a hot tub in the rain? Not that I know of.

    Lance2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Catherine’s house is perfect for a weekend getaway. Four of us stayed for two nights and there was plenty of space for us all and the kitchen is well stocked for nights cooking in. We loved the hot tub and the foggy early mornings! The pictures really don’t do the house justice — it’s a beautiful space with great views.

    Amanda2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very charming and was the perfect little escape from our daily life. We loved the extra amenities for kids including sleeping mats and highchair as well as extra toys. The fire pit, hot tub, and bbq made our trip complete. Catherine was also very responsive when we had questions or needed a little extra help!

    Becky2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Catherine's home in the redwoods is a perfect retreat for those who want some cozy quiet time in a beautiful natural setting. Despite feeling like a cabin in the woods, the accommodations are super comfortable and everything was sparkling clean. Rustic in only the best way. The retro (but very high quality) kitchen is excellent for cooks. Beds and bathrooms are well-stocked and comfortable, and the radiant floor heating (and wood stove) kept us toasty throughout the chilly weekend. The hot tub is nicely secluded and worked perfectly. It was a wet weekend so we didn't use most of the outdoor amenities, but I would love to come back in the summer or fall for a firepit and BBQ. The house is perfectly located along the Russian River, with an easy and beautiful drive out to the ocean and several beaches and hikes. If you're visiting from out of the area, be sure to get some fresh seafood in the coastal towns nearby.

    Ian2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic and cozy house! We had a wonderful weekend at Catherine’s place and enjoyed the fireplace and beautiful ambiance. Highly recommend!

    John2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • You won't regret staying at Catherine's place. This place is amazing... It offers such a great view of bamboo trees. Since we were visiting during the raining season, it could have been cold and humid. But the house's heated floor system and fireplace made it so comfortable and cozy. It is a must-stay place if you are in the Monte Rio area.

    Stephen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • My partner, dog and I enjoyed the long weekend at Colibri. It's tucked away in some beautiful redwoods, very close to the Russian River. It being mid-winter, we spent more of our time lounging inside, but I imagine the outdoor space being awesome to take advantage of in the warmer months. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return.

    Tara2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying in Colibri. It was comfy, clean and modern. The kitchen amenities were fantastic. Everything you'd need and more. The bed was super comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet, and the neighbors were friendly. The owners provided an outstanding booklet with their recommendations for experiences and restaurants in the area. The booklet also provided pet-friendly locations which I really appreciated. The location was perfect for our plans. We wanted to explore the Russian River area (Guerneville, Monte Rio, Occeidental and the Sonoma Coast). It was generally 15 minutes in every direction. Very central. We did 2 excursions to the Sonoma Coast. First went north and visited Fort Ross Vineyard Winery. The owners recommended it, and it was excellent. Dog friendly on their deck and grounds, beautiful views of the coast, solitude. They have Chardonnay and Pinot. We had a picnic there. Beautiful. Following that we stopped in Jenner to see the sunset where the river and the ocean come together. Highly recommend Cafe Aquatica. There's a restaurant and a wine and beer bar. Plenty of picnic tables and chairs right on the water. Second day, Sonoma Coast South. We started at the Goat Rock area. Highly recommend. Beautiful vistas, beaches, trails, harbor seals, dunes. This is a gem. Dogs allowed in some areas, but a bit limited on the trails. From there we went to Occidental. A fantastic town. We enjoyed Union Hotel Restaurant and Negris Italian bar with our dog. Overall, a great vacation.

    Daniel2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was a treat to stay at this lovely apartment, really homely feel and beautiful touches. Tom was quick to respond and helpful! Location was just out of the city centre in a very cosy area avoiding the main bustle.

    Veronica2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is the first time we came back to an vacation rental because we loved it so much. It's great for a quick getaway as we live just 2 hours away. Yet, it feels like a world away from our hectic City life. It's peaceful, calm and the beauty of nature surrounds you right in your front yard. We went back to Blind Beach/Goat Rock Beach just 10 minutes away where the waves, winds and weather was still mild and pleasant. The Russian River was even closer with it's kid-friendly waters. Tom is a most thoughtful host and quick with his replies...and yes, we'll be back again!

    Girlie2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet casual corner with delightful outdoor space.

    Rachel2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect for the river...we've stayed in multiple locations and like most of them for different reasons. This one had amazing outdoor space, which was a lovely change of pace from the typical 'stuck in a cabin with a tiny deck' experience. It was also forested - which was a cool throwback to Santa Cruz trips, combined with the sunny river being a 5 minute trip away. :)

    Kristina2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot near the river. Communication was excellent. Everything was perfect about the house. The yard space and bathroom were highlights. I highly recommend!

    Most homes in the Russian River area are located in rural neighborhoods, home to a colorful, eclectic population of both full-time and vacation home residents. There are neighbors, but they're usually not too close, and you can expect the kinds of activities typical of any neighborhood. There are a range of dwelling types, and you might rub elbows with a 5th generation River resident, a Silicon Valley scion, and a Generation of Love retiree on the same block. The Russian River is a vacation destination year round, and most homes are built on roads running parallel to the River or Creek with mountains close on both sides, so there are varying degrees of noise from the roads, the River, residents and other visitors. Many roads are narrow (some may even wend and wind a bit), without much street lighting, so it's best to arrive in the daylight, if possible, and please download and use our directions. GPS, online mapping and cell service are not reliable in this area. If you have any questions about the general access to or neighborhood surrounding this home, please contact us.
  • My daughter and I spent some quality time at Lollipop, hanging out on the deck looking down at the beautiful Russian River, cooking delicious feasts and heading out to Armstrong Redwoods and the beach. This place has interesting antiques on the walls to ponder and, although not spacious, it's cozy and plenty big enough for 2. Very comfortable bed. Outdoor shower and hot tub set at perfect temperature. Great walking in the neighborhood up very old roads through the redwood filled neighborhood and its many soulful homes. Definitely a keeper this place.

    David2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lollipop cabin was so clean, and cozy. The enclosed garden was charmed with globe lights, Redwoods, moss, and climbing jasmine. a great place to relax and take a hot soak. The view from the deck is the Russian River - which is spectacular. The kitchen is well stock with utensils. You can expect to feel refreshed after your stay.

    Patricia2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very comfortable. The eclectic music selection for the CD player is an added benefit. The garden and hot tub adds to the experience. I love the area and this cottage is perfect!

    Carol2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing river view, lovely space and hot tub. It was super from start to finish, with even a cozy dog bed on the deck. Super!

    Ingrid2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable cottage with a clean hot tub and a dreamy view of the Russian River and forests. Ideally located between Guerneville and Jenner.

    Ryan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful getaway spot! Great river view, hot tub, and the heat works great. Kitchen came stocked with essentials for cooking. Check-in was seamless. Thank you!

  • Nice place thanks! Cute little area.

    Stefan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent property. Private beach access, plentiful parking, fast internet and a back yard. Feels like the deep woods, but right next to san San Francisco. It was a great decision. Highly recommended.

    Richard2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Super charming place in Monte Rio. My friends and I loved the decor and enjoyed hanging out in the cozy living room listening to records. The backyard leads to a small trail down to the river. A 15 minute drive to Guerneville and we were able to make it work with a combo of Ubers/local taxis. While there are not a ton of uber/lyfts, there are ways to get around. Lovely place, would definitely recommend!

    Piper2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great location just west of Monte Rio. Cute path to a semi-private beach right on the river. This spot can't be beat.

  • We stayed here to celebrate my mom’s 81st Birthday. The place is very nice overlooking the river. It was very comfortable for my 12 family members. The house is quite lovely and we loved the game room and deck. The host gave us info on private beach very close to the house. We had such a lovely time! Highly recommend Moonriver to folks looking for a quiet and charming house!

    Ingrid2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was the perfect place for a chill weekend with my friends! Right next to Monte Rio beach where we spent the day floating the river. Such a cool space, 10/10 would stay here again.

    Claire2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place in a lovely, quiet area. The space is really terrific for large groups. We had lots of room to gather and hang out, and plenty of private spaces where to rest up or take a break away from the group. Stace's tips for things to do in the area were super helpful – although with such a beautiful house and views, it was tempting to just stay put. :-)

    Kimberly2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Stace’s place was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. There was more than enough space for our group of 8 - we all had a great weekend of barbecuing, relaxing in the hot tub, and enjoying the ping pong and shuffle board tables.

    Zach2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This house was a perfect accommodation for our big group. The house was clean, open and a literal stone's throw to the Russian River! Under the giant redwoods and just off the kitchen, the deck was a common hangout for us - BBQ-ing and just enjoying the reclining deck chairs. The other common hangout spot was the garage where ping pong tourneys were constant. And the shuffle board was quite impressive!! There was one minor hiccup during our stay, so I placed a call to Stace. Within an hour a repairman was at the house working to fix the issue!!! A+ responsiveness and communication! I would absolutely recommend you stay at Moon River. I hope to come back in the summertime to enjoy some river activities! Thanks for everything, Stace!!! :-)

    Jordan & Kristen2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • House was very well described in the listing. Had a lovely weekend there despite the continuous rain.

    Laura2019-02-10T00:00:00Z

    Roy2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house is surrounded by redwoods, a beautiful sight to wake up to each day. We spent the holidays there and had a really nice time. The house has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Some notes: 1. Heating is achieved by the pellet stove in living room. This does get nice and toasty though and eventually spreads heat to the bedrooms. Each room also has a space heater. 2. Parking is across the street. Use the street just down the road to turn around and park in the designated spot. Careful when pulling out too - it’s in a blind spot. 3. Finally, some of the outlets in the living room and smallest bedroom stopped working during our stay. If this is the case for you, the power breaker is located outside the house near the base of the stairs. A quick reset solved the problem and we were able to use all outlets without issue afterwards. Overall, this is a nice house in a great location - definitely consider it for your trip to the area.

    Matthew2018-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome experience here. Would love to stay again.

    Blair2018-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cabin with a great deck. Only thing the photos don’t really show is that it’s next door to a couple of other places- so not totally secluded. But other than that, perfect.

    Alex2018-10-29T00:00:00Z

    Stairway to Haven is close to both Villa Grande beach and Monte Rio beach as well as "downtown" Monte Rio. The house is on a one-car road hill which makes it very private.
  • Great place, secluded.

    Spend your days lounging on the river beach, splashing in the Pacific Ocean, dining in fine restaurants, exploring Sonoma wineries, hiking, playing golf--and at the end of the day escape to the perfect place to relax. Our log cabin is hidden away in a peaceful area of the redwoods, a ten minute walk from the river. Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, central heat & wood stove, wi fi, TV & surround sound, plus a sunny front porch, spacious back deck, & a hammock in the trees. Sorry, no kids.
    Our log cabin was built from a kit in the 1960s. We were fortunate to discover this home and have spent years lovingly restoring it to its former charm. We kept many of the original features (such as plywood walls and one bathroom sink), but replaced other features (such as deteriorating laminate kitchen countertops). Our cabin is filled with one-of-a-kind pieces that we have found in second hand stores and yard sales and then restored. We paid close attention to replacing the rotten outdoor spaces since nature always calls to us. You will love the results as you sit peacefully on the large, quiet deck or sunny front porch.
    The sign in downtown Monte Rio proclaims that we are a hate-free community. As you spend time in our area, you will notice the relaxed, warm friendliness of the local people and feel the old-fashioned sense of community. This is truly a culture of friendliness and tolerance of all. Welcome to the Russian River area! (We are also considered to be part of the historic Villa Grande community.)
  • Wow, expect to find the magical qualities at this cabin. It’s a gem tucked in the forest.. so much that we called it a treehouse. We came here with family and good friends and Sue has been so gracious and accommodating, a great host that treats the cabin with a special care as though you are the first visitor. We are a family of caterers and the kitchen had everything we needed to make family meals.. You can easily spend the whole weekend here or venture into the Sonoma coast. It was lovely, and highly recommended. Thank you Sue!

  • Everything about this place is cozy and inviting, especially the beds! The location is perfect - it feels secluded yet you are within walking distance of the river and a short drive from the ocean. Sue is a great host and communicator and we appreciated the extra touches she provides.

    Steve2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was a perfect place to spend time with family. It was so cozy and comfortable and very clean. Sue was a great host and communicator. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

    Diane2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay, the pictures don’t do this home and location justice. It’s a place where you want to write a bad review so no one else will know about it! Sue is also a great host. Thank you Sue!

    Patrick2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s cozy cottage was a fairytale. The location inside and out can’t be beat. Everything was so thoughtfully placed and conveniently located and Sue was a great communicator throughout our stay. Everything about this place is magical. Definitely worth a visit or two if you’re looking for the perfect peaceful getaway!

    Esmeralda2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Sue's cabin is set in an absolutely gorgeous and peaceful setting in the middle of the redwoods. It is very well maintained and we really appreciated the personal touches that Sue had added. Sue was also very responsive and a pleasure to communicate with. I would highly recommend staying!

    Vijay2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and clean and tidy and every detail considered throughout the process. We would wholeheartedly recommend it and so fortunate we found this little gem.

    Shelley2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sue's home was beautiful, clean, and spacious. Her directions to the place and "how to manual" on operating everything in the house makes it as easy as it gets, and for a 3-room, 2-bath house, everything was laid out perfectly in every room. The Wi-Fi is fast, the views are stunning, and the parking areas are large. If you're thinking of visiting Monte Rio, Sue's home is the place to go, especially when you have a larger party and need something in great order and for a great price.

    The Hungry Tortuga is a perfect summer rental for families. With a casual layout, lots of sun, and nearby beach access, The Hungry Tortuga is a place for family and friends to gather, enjoy each other’s company and immerse themselves in the beauty of the area.

Exterior stairs lead from the lower level to the upper level. The upstairs, with its steeply pointed open-beam ceiling and small adjacent rooms, feels like a clubhouse or secret fort. While an unusual space, it has undeniable charm and a relaxing vibe. Since there are no doors, just curtains, separating the sleeping areas, this is a casual sleeping arrangement. Guests with kids or groups of friends will be pleased by the number of beds. There is a double futon in the living area, with its loungy style and flat screen TV, a queen bed in the side bedroom, and a twin bed and a twin day bed located in a little nook off the back of the living space.

  • The location is awesome—the beach is just a quick, 2 minute walk through the forest path. The home is cozy and has an awesome, spacious yard for barbecuing and enjoying the outdoors. It was great waking up, stepping outside and enjoying the fresh forest air.

    Polina2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location and a fun house to just hang out on the Russian river. Had family in from Germany who were 3 weeks into their US trip. Having traveled from East to West, they enjoyed this stop in their vacation the most!!

    Conn2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • My siblings came up for a long holiday weekend to celebrate our sister's birthday. We had such a carefree and wonderful time, with no worries. The accessibility of the beach is incredible! No need to scramble to find parking, you've already arrived.

    Moisés2019-07-08T00:00:00Z

    John2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Location! Location! This house is in walking distance to the river and the beach which made our quick getaway from the city better. It was easy to go back to the home to use the restroom or grab more food and drinks. The backyard is perfect for eating breakfast. We would definitely love to come back!

    Renee2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!

    Bruno2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect accommodation for a family with a dog. There was a great enclosed space in the backyard for the dog to explore and be outside. The kitchen was one of the best stocked I have been to. There is none to very little phone reception but the WiFi is good when at home. The house is somewhat hard to find the first time but then no problem. Nice little neighborhood to walk the dog and close to the dog-friendly beach. Also the neighborhood is very quiet and secluded. In Monte Rio there is a few cafes and close by are two small grocery/ convenient stores so you don’t have to drive all the way to Guerneville to Safeway. About 15 minutes down Hwy 116 is Duncan Mills with some small gift shops and a few restaurants. A little farther you are in Jenner on the coast. Go towards Bodega Bay and stop at the beautiful Sonoma Coast State Park and check out Goat Rock while taking a hike with your dog. I can highly recommend staying here for a relaxing time on the Russian River. Also check out Armstrong Redwoods State Park. There is a 1400 year old Redwood which is taller than a football field. Pretty awesome!

    Doug2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little home with great hot tub. Super clean with a well appointed kitchen for a rental, perfect for our Thanksgiving needs. Easy check in & great communication. Thanks!

    Noelle2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place in one of the best neighborhoods on the Russian River!

    Chris2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Up and Away is a great place to stay to visit the area, with its beautiful Russian River within walking distance and the 19-minute easy drive to the ocean, in particular to the dog-friendly Blind Beach. The house is well located, clean and cozy, with a well equipped kitchen and reliable internet. The fact that the place is dog-friendly is definitely a plus. You can’t access the backyard directly from the house but the street is quiet so your pups are safe when you take them to the dog run area behind the house. Super smooth communications with the River Home’s team and very easy check-in process, thank you!

    Frederic2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great little house. Loved that it was a 3 minute walk to the river, was dog friendly, and had a jacuzzi and grill! We would definitely go back.

    Marie2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • UP AND AWAY was a wonderful home in a great location. The adults and teens both had a great time. The proximity to the river beach was fantastic, the neighborhood was charming, and the house well appointed and clean. We would come again!

    This turn of the century cabin is located in arguably the best neighborhood on the Russian River with direct river access via a seasonal dock and a neighborhood sandy beach. We fully renovated the cabin in 2018 and everything is thoughtfully curated and high end. It's the perfect vacation spot for families, groups of friends and company off sites. It is well stocked with everything you need for cooking, entertaining, and enjoying this beautiful part of Northern California.
    We have been using this house as a personal vacation home for 8 years and have fully dialed in the necessary amenities. Just bring your clothes and food and we will provide the rest. For beach and river enjoyment there are 2 paddle boards, a canoe, life jackets, a cooler, beach umbrella, beach chairs, towels, and a collection of sand toys. The bathrooms are stocked with toiletries, hair tools (blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons) and first aid kits. A pack n play and high chair can be provided upon request. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything a gourmet chef could want including a Wolf range. There is a bbq/smoker in the front yard and a propane fire pit on the back deck. The front yard is fully enclosed with a treehouse nestled in the redwoods for kids of all ages. We are a pet friendly property and have a dog door in the kitchen that goes out to the fenced yard. There is a bonus Shelter Co. tent in the yard for playing or sleeping. It can be furnished upon request or BYO mats and sleeping bags. The house is on two levels with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs with the main living area and kitchen, and two bedrooms with a bathroom and separate living room downstairs. The downstairs has a separate entrance that's accessed by either the back deck or side stairs. We have so much love for this house and area and are excited to share it with you.
    The neighborhood of Villa Grande is one of the earliest settlements along the Russian River. Most of the homes in the neighborhood are over 100 years old and are charming AF. The local beach, Patterson Point Preserve, was purchased by people in the neighborhood in partnership with Sonoma Open Space Trust to preserve the land for public use. It's one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches on the river. There are many wonderful restaurants in the surrounding towns of Duncans Mills and Guerneville. The cabin is just a short drive into downtown Guerneville but feels much more immersed in nature.

    Most homes in the Russian River area are located in rural neighborhoods, home to a colorful, eclectic population of both full-time and vacation home residents. There are neighbors, but they're usually not too close, and you can expect the kinds of activities typical of any neighborhood. There are a range of dwelling types, and you might rub elbows with a 5th generation River resident, a Silicon Valley scion, and a Generation of Love retiree on the same block. The Russian River is a vacation destination year round, and most homes are built on roads running parallel to the River or Creek with mountains close on both sides, so there are varying degrees of noise from the roads, the River, residents and other visitors. Many roads are narrow (some may even wend and wind a bit), without much street lighting, so it's best to arrive in the daylight, if possible, and please download and use our directions. GPS, online mapping and cell service are not reliable in this area. If you have any questions about the general access to or neighborhood surrounding this home, please contact us.
  • Could not recommend this place more. The house is incredibly large and can host a good number of people comfortably. The views from the river are beautiful and it feels like a secluded getaway with all the amenities you would need in the kitchen. Game room and TVs were a great addition and we had a blast. One thing to note, extra blankets are a little tough to come by so in colder months be sure to bring your own. Apart from that the house has everything you need! Can’t wait to come back soon.

    Emilio2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and easy stay for a group of 12. The house had enough space to accommodate all of us and more. The communication with the host company was seamless and the description of the house seemed accurate. The kitchen is well stocked which made it easy to feed everyone and cook for the group. The setting on the river is beautiful and the house is just 10 minutes from the coast. I would definitely recommend this spot if you're looking for a getaway for a big group.

    Lana2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful home. Great for family gatherings. Extremely comfortable and enough room for everyone. The location on the river was a real plus. We definitely would rent again.

    Mary2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • River Queen was an amazing house for a group gathering! The big common space with beautiful view of the river was perfect for big dinners, games, music, etc. There were plenty of beds, and so many fun amenities like ping-pong, pool, foosball, games and an incredible hot tub under the redwoods. The only downside for us is we hoped for more direct walking access to more nature, like hiking trails, though there's plenty of beautiful spots within short driving distance.

    Tibet2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, great location. Perfect for family getaway.

    Bijee2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • this place is a great spot for groups. Tons of space to gather together and also find quiet spots when you need them. We absolutely loved the fireplace at night and having coffee by the river in the morning. The locations is perfect for getting away, but close to excursions like the beach, horseback riding and winerys. BOOK IT!!

    Karly2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This house is huge and so beautiful. Even with all the pictures it surpassed my expectations. It sleeps many, many people, and the access to the river in the back plus the hot tub under the redwoods was truly magical.

    Gemma2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect group home for a large-group/family get-away. Right along the river with river fun amenities (canoes, floaties, etc), and so much entertainment space and fun things to do around the house! would definitely come back!!

    Most homes in the Russian River area are located in rural neighborhoods, home to a colorful, eclectic population of both full-time and vacation home residents. There are neighbors, but they're usually not too close, and you can expect the kinds of activities typical of any neighborhood. There are a range of dwelling types, and you might rub elbows with a 5th generation River resident, a Silicon Valley scion, and a Generation of Love retiree on the same block. The Russian River is a vacation destination year round, and most homes are built on roads running parallel to the River or Creek with mountains close on both sides, so there are varying degrees of noise from the roads, the River, residents and other visitors. Many roads are narrow (some may even wend and wind a bit), without much street lighting, so it's best to arrive in the daylight, if possible, and please download and use our directions. GPS, online mapping and cell service are not reliable in this area. If you have any questions about the general access to or neighborhood surrounding this home, please contact us.
  • What a beautiful spot to relax as well as serve as a launchpad for Russian River wine tasting. We were perfectly comfortable with our dog and were immediately conspiring to return!

  • This cozy home located on the river we was a perfect getaway. While the setting is very private please note it is not a completely quiet and remote location so you can still hear traffic a little bit. Amazing spot though!! Really enjoyed the fireplace!!

    Heidi2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! Thank you for making everything easy and for preparing the space for us. It was sparkling clean! We did our best to leave it clean and organized as well. The patio and fireplace were our favorite spots.

    Frances Paola2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cute, quiet and cozy cottage - feels like it could do with having some of the decor cleared as a small place can feel cluttered quickly. Also complementary coffee goes a long way with guests, bring your own coffee.

    Samantha2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is beautifully located on the river, clean and relaxing. I want to go back.

    Farzaneh2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy and excellent view. Peaceful and private.

    Bonnie2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mallard Manor is the perfect place if you are seeking a very comfortable, private home on the river to relax and feed your soul. A beautiful deck on the river and lots of light in the open living area from large windows added to our enjoyment. All the appliances worked well and kitchen is well stocked with all the pots and pans needed as I enjoyed having the time to cook. A scenic drive following the river takes you to the beautiful Sonoma coast. We had a wonderful time here- just wish we could have stayed longer.

    Victoria2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the Mallard house - such a peaceful location, right on the river and very quiet. We spent a lot of time looking at the birds traveling up and down the river and admiring the trees and the unbelievable about of stars you can see at night. The place was very clean and had all the appliances/cutlery/etc. we needed to cook in. There was a great bar restaurant called Highland Dell about a 15 minute walk away when we wanted to go out. The area is really close to Armstrong woods and stunning ocean beaches. A lot of wineries in the area too. I would definitely recommend!

Offer good for dates reserved Jan-April (excluding holiday periods). Email us your desired dates to receive the special offer (subject to availability). Lost and Found - It's not the house that's lost, it's the rest of the world that becomes lost when you are in this retreat nestled in the woods. While the house is all on one level, there are a few stairs to traverse to get down to the property from the street. It's part of what makes this house so private. A gas barbecue and a large seating area on the huge deck with beautiful views make outdoor dining and grilling a treat. The deck gets both full sun and a bit of shade depending on the time of day. The hot tub is also located in a private spot and has views too! The living room, dining area and kitchen are all easily accessible and open. No window coverings are needed as most of the house looks right out into the forest and canyon. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and butcher block counters. (Please don't cut directly on the counters! Cutting boards are provided.) We provide the "basics" in terms of pots, pans, dishware, glassware, utensils and cooking implements. You'll want to bring any specialty gear (i.e. thermometer, turkey baster, stick blender, etc.) if you plan to do extensive cooking or a special meal. BOTH bedrooms have KING size beds which is a rare find in a vacation rental. There's also an air mattress for extra kids or guests. There are two bathrooms. One with a tub/shower combo and one with a large luxurious tub. We have board games and a Nintendo Classic with 30 games, lots of free streaming options for TV/movies, and a fully fenced yard for our four-legged friends.

For 30 day and longer stays, additional security deposit and utility fees may apply. Contact us for exact pricing details before booking a month long stay. A note about subjectivity: Each of us has probably had the experience of renting a vacation home that wasn't quite what we were expecting. In such cases, we hope our reaction will be to make the best of it and enjoy the beauty of wherever we're vacationing. But we wanted to address the subjective nature of expectations and let you know that we do our utmost to describe our homes as accurately as possible, and to provide enough pictures that you can get a realistic idea of the space. In addition, all of our homeowners, without exception, love their homes, take pains to maintain them, and want you to enjoy them. If you see something in our ad that isn't clear, please let us know so we can adjust it, and if you have any questions whatsoever, please let us know -- we are happy to provide any information we can because we want to help you find the perfect house for you.
  • Star's cabin in the redwoods far exceeded our expectations! Nestled in the redwood forest, their cabin had the comforts and amenities that made our weekend stay feel like home. The cabin is very well kept, and is the perfect combination of cabin retreat and modern living. As people who like to cook, their kitchen was stocked with all the tools needed (namely, great knives, pans, and appliances) to cook well - we really appreciated that! The living room and bedrooms were great - very comfortable beds and abundant linens provided. And the hot tub is situated out in the woods which was a great place to relax after days of nearby hiking, hanging out at the beach, and exploring the Russian River Valley. Needless to say, we loved it!

  • We really enjoyed our relaxing long weekend at the Lost & Found cabin. We usually stay closer to Guerneville, but loved the look of this place and decided to try staying in Monte Rio for a change. Would recommend arriving during daylight if at all possible - the turns are easy to miss and the road is narrow, twisty, and dark. Once you've done it, though, it's easy to remember the way. Our favorite parts: - Waking up each morning to see the sun breaking through the fog and illuminating miles of redwoods in every direction. - The hot tub was a close second. - The kitchen is well-appointed and had everything we needed to cook some simple meals. For sensitive sleepers: the mattresses were on the lumpy side, but they're king-size, so there's plenty of room to stretch out.

    Katherine2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • If you're needing a secluded place to relax then this is it. It is close enough to town, the river and the coast to be convenient but up the hill far enough to feel like you're completely alone. The kitchen was stocked with the equipment you need to cook almost anything, including sharp knives, which I really appreciate. The entire space is nicely decorated with personal touches by the owners making it both inviting and wonderfully comfortable. The two decks and the hot tub made it perfect.

  • The home is gorgeous, well appointed, easy to access, and private. It’s a pleasure to be in the space, we made full use of the kitchen and had fun playing games that were available. Having a completely private gated space for our dog to run free, with access to the river, was unbeatable. The view of the river can be seen while you’re in the home, and is stunning. The bathrooms had enough basics for us. The only feedback would be around the cleanup and towels, If we are paying a cleaning fee I’d rather not have to do the dishes myself. And being limited to 1 towel per person for the weekend can be tough, but glad we brought our own. Not a big deal though, We can’t wait to come back in warmer months! Thank you for an amazing experience 🙌🏽🙌🏽

    Arya2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish but not fussy home. We enjoyed our stay. Can’t wait to return.

  • This is a beautiful home in a super quiet spot right next to the river. We had a very relaxing couple days here enjoying the views and peaceful environment. We enjoyed a couple games of bocce ball too!

    Welcome to Yester-Year! In 1893 (that is not a typo...lol) Yester-year took form. Located in the Heart of the Russian River Wine Country Yester-Year offers a taste of history...and glimpse into the past. Within a 6 minute walk you will come to a path...think of Sherwood Forrest...this beautiful path meanders through the redwoods and ferns and ends at a Pristine beach at the Russian River...This beach is only for local residents and is a Russian River HIDDEN Treasure! This historic house has all the charm of the late 1800's including a huge wrap around sun porch, a large kitchen for family game nights, a beautiful old, stone fireplace all surrounded by lush redwoods and ferns. Lounging in the sunroom is like sitting in a time machine...open the French doors and multitude of windows, grab a long, tall glass of lemonade and be transported back to a simpler time a place... Along with the old we have just the right amount of new.... A flat screen TV, WiFi and newly refurbished bathroom bring us back into the 21st century...lol.. Homey and comfortable from the moment you walk through the door, you will find a quiet master bedroom with a queen bed, a wonderful sleeping area on the Sun porch with a King bed, and another sleeping area at the opposite end of the sun porch with a double futon. The living room is great for catching-up after a day at the river, wineries, Armstrong Woods or the Pacific Ocean. Light a fire and enjoy time spent with your very favorite 6 people! Did we mention the Private beach on the Russian River is a short 5 minute walk from Yester-Year! Yester-Year also has a large deck and large yard with a hammock for those lazy river days. Grab a book and hit the hammock! With your rental we will also include a couple of Movie Passes to the near-by Rio Theater in Monte Rio.

Friendly reminder 6 (4 adults and 2 kids) is the max day or night in our sweet get-away. If you will have more people visiting during your stay please let us know.
