Description

Boathouse is a classic 3 bedroom, 2 bath, riverfront home featuring a two level deck with river views. It is conveniently located next to a large sandy neighborhood beach. Boathouse is a one level home (all rooms situated on the upper level) with wood floors, a living room with a fireplace, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a downstairs basement with a pool table and ping pong table.

Enjoy river views as you dine al fresco on the large back deck or relax on the upper sitting deck. Boathouse offers a yard area with river views and a brand new floating dock(photos of dock coming soon)! Additionally, it is just a short walk to a sandy, dog-friendly neighborhood beach. The home includes a canoe and 2 kayaks (available mid-June through mid-September).

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at Boathouse is 7 people. Quiet hours are from 10:00 pm until 7:00 am. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Parking: There is parking in the driveway for 2-3 cars. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes: First bedroom: King bed; Second bedroom: Queen bed; Third bedroom: 1 Queen, 1 Twin bed

Heat Sources: Central heat, wood burning fireplace (no firewood or kindling provided).

A/C: The house does not have air conditioning. Being near the coast, the night time temps drop and just opening some windows is usually enough to cool the house.

Docks and beaches are seasonal only and available from mid-June to mid-September providing the summer dams are in. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and rowboats that are provided in some of our homes are also available from mid-June to mid-September only. The river is usually too swift for boating in the winter and many docks and beaches are under water until late spring.

Summer Rotation Day: Thursday
During the Peak Season, which runs from the end of June through August, Boathouse has a 7 night minimum and rents on a Thursday to Thursday pattern. If you make an online reservation outside of this rotation day requirement, we may contact you about altering your dates.

A note about the lot next door: Construction is happening in the lot next door, beginning at 8 am on weekdays. Crews are not typically active on the weekends. The amount of noise from the activity will vary as the project progresses. The project is expected to last through sometime in 2022.

beautiful scenery all around

We had a blast staying here. Aside from the beautiful scenery all around, we also enjoyed the entertainment room which was equipped with a ping pong/pool table and more. The location was perfect for us. Traveling with the little ones we were comfortable staying close by to town in case we needed something urgently. Most importantly, the service was amazing. Thank you for communicating in a timely manner and answering all my questions promptly. It was our first time visiting Guerneville and we already felt confident and welcomed before getting there. It was truly a great experience!-via Airbnb

Beautiful getaway right on the river. Kayaks and an expansive game room with ping pong and pool made for excellent entertainment throughout the stay. About a 20 min walk from town, we made the trek daily for coffee, a great way to wake up.-via VRBO

The Boathouse offers ample room for a large family gathering. The pool table, boat, bbq, and complimentary bottle of local wine was a nice touch. Listening to the subtle flow of the river and light rustle of the trees (along with savoring the local wines) was exactly what we needed. We would definitely rent this home again.-via Airbnb

This is one of the best AirBnB we have stayed in. Everyone in the family truly enjoyed the huge deck, the gate enclosure where we had both our dogs hang out and the huge game room where we played pool, ping pong, and the corn hole boards. The adult kids had a really relaxing time and the river deck was large enough to hang out with some chairs and to enjoy the scene. Highly highly recommend this place. Very comfortable.-via Airbnb

I have love the Russian River area but have found it hard to find a house that would fit our large family and also be on the river. We found it in the boat house! It was perfect amount of space and gorgeous views. I do wish they had a dock. There are stairs leading down to the water but no dock. Plenty of kitchen utensils and wonderful morning light. Right next to the path that leads to the neighborhood beach!-via Airbnb

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for! Nothing fancy but everything cozy and comfortable with plenty of room for six humans and two dogs. The location was ideal, the dock was a most relaxing way to spend a few hours watching the kayakers, ducks and birds float by. The beach was just a minute down a little path. We got plenty of use of the kitchen cooking every night. And the kayaks, game room and corn hole were all put to fun use. We look forward to visiting again!

Prior to this trip, I did not realize I could have a relaxing vacation when traveling with my 5- and 3-year olds, not to mention my dog. This house is super comfortable, beautiful while still being kid- and pet-friendly, and has a slew of thoughtful touches and amenities. The view is everything I wanted, being literally right on the water is perfect, and having kayaks in the garage meant we didn't have to go anywhere or interact with anyone. This is very helpful for both my people the introverts and also for going on vacation in a pandemic. Lots of delicious restaurants and a Pee Wee Golf course that my kids are still talking about within 5 minutes drive. I started counting down to our next trip here as soon as we left.

Super rad times!

This place was great! Super cute. Definitely dog friendly. There was lots of kitchen supplies and plenty of bathroom things/ towels/ toilet paper too. The driveway fits plenty of cars easily. The backyard was nice and big and you could access the river (slight drop off). The walk to the beach out the front yard was quick and easy.

We spent a week at the Boat House with our 16-21 year old kids and everyone loved it. Two of our picky teens arrived before the rest of the group and advised us by text that the place was "amazing." We were happy to find out they were right when we arrived. The young people loved the basement rec room, making good use of the pool table and ping pong table. The following day we found it was easy to carry the two kayaks and tubes from the garage down to the nearby beach. The house was well-stocked and provided everything we needed to prepare meals and clean up after them. The house was nice and quiet at night, apart from a few loud cars on River Road. But that's going to happen with about any house on the river. Everyone slept comfortably and the place stayed nice and cool despite some warm daytime temperatures. We'd definitely stay again.

Us and another family stayed here and had a fantastic time. The house was clean, everything worked great and was safe for the kids. The neighborhood was clean and quit and the neighbors were nice. Plenty of safe parking including the garage. Although I would have like access to a garage remote to open and close it. The only negative I have are that virtually all the games were missing most if not all the pieces needed to play. So bring your own games. The VHS movie collection was fantastic though many classics. The beds were very comfortable. The beach and river access is great after taking a very short walk. Overall I would stay here again.

Had a fabulous time in Guerneville, CA. We came to Guerneville to attend the Russian River Jazz Festival at Johnson's Beach, which is a yearly thing. It usually falls on the second weekend in September. Two years before, we stayed at another vacation rental on the same side as Johnson's Beach. There were 3 couples so a total of 6 people.We arrived on Friday, 9/8. One of the couples within our group actually arrived a little earlier and they were accommodated with an early check-in. I got there a little after 4 and the Boathouse was amazing and much better than our last rental. It was in such a great location and a short walk to the festival. There was enough room for 3 cars to park comfortably. I loved the fact that the house was fully stocked with almost everything that we needed.Upon entering the house it felt so homey with ample room and comfortable furniture. The living room was cozy with a nice fireplace. We didn't utilize the fireplace because that weekend it was super hot.We did a lot of cooking so it was nice that the kitchen was open to the dining area and we were all able to socialize while some of us cooked. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans and utensils and seasonings.There was another room facing the front of the house where the TV was located. There was only 1 TV in the entire home but it was ok because we didn't spend too much time in there. The guys did watch Sunday Football in there. The guys spent time in the basement playing pool and ping pong.The 3 bedrooms were all different in design, but all were extremely comfortable and with enough room to move around with ease.The lower deck and sitting deck I think was my favorite thing about the place. You could overlook the Russian River and watch the people in their canoes or kayaks going by. The only thing that I would point out is the house didn't have air conditioning and since the back of the house faced the sun it got extremely hot in the afternoon hours. But, as the evenings approached the breeze would kick in and it just felt absolutely perfect.Overall our weekend getaway in this fabulous house was more than what we anticipated and we ended up creating more priceless memories and our friendship and family bond that much more solid. We had such a good time that we're already talking about next year!!!!!

The house is lovely with great decks. (If only it would have stopped raining). Has a great downstairs game room that kept the grandchildren entertained as well as a large library of movies. (Rain). The neighborhood is quiet and lovely. I would definitely recommend this house for a vacation rental.
