Description

Culture Blend is a spacious 4 bedroom, 4 bath Russian River vacation rental, offering accommodations for 14 guests. This home features a 3 bedroom main house, a separate master bedroom suite, 2 kitchens and a recreation/game room and spa.

The main living space offers high ceilings, hardwood floors, a large open living/dining room with a 90" flat screen TV and a decorative fireplace. The fully equipped kitchen has a tiled breakfast bar. Several rooms feature glass doors leading to a long, large deck facing the river with outdoor dining and a gas grill. Each bedroom offers a comfortable King bed and a 32" flat screen TV. The separate suite has a living room with a sofa bed, a full kitchen and a private full bath. The suite bedroom faces the river and also has glass doors leading to the deck.

The recreation room is located next to the garage and includes a pool table, foosball, air hockey, arcade basketball, ping pong and video games. Off the patio is a spa with a gazebo. Enjoy excellent access to the Russian River from this riverfront property. Just walk down the custom rock stairway to a path that leads down to a large beach. A kayak is included (available mid-June through mid-September only) for scenic rides along the river. Culture Blend shares this beautiful three-acre property with Contente, a similarly built vacation rental.
Culture Blend is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley, just east of downtown Guerneville. This vacation rental is walking distance to two local breweries and a restaurant. It is also just a mile from Korbel winery and many other Russian River Valley wineries.

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at Culture Blend is 14. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Parking: On-site parking is permitted for a maximum of 4 vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes:
Main House: First bedroom: King bed; Second bedroom: King bed; Third bedroom: King bed; Living Room: 2 Extra Long Double European style sleeper sofas
Suite: Suite bedroom: King bed; Suite living room: Double European style sleeper sofa

Heat Source: Central heat.

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 & Boats: 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: Monday
During the Peak Season, which runs end of June through August, Culture Blend has a 7 night minimum and rents on a Monday to Monday pattern. If you make an online reservaton outside of this rotation day requirement, we may contact you about altering your dates.

Location: Culture Blend is located approximately 1.5 miles east of downtown Guerneville on River Road, a busy two-lane road that connects Guerneville to Highway 101. Due to double wall construction, there is very little road noise inside the home, as well as on the back deck and lower lawn area.The driveway and front staircase face the road. All outdoor living areas are shielded from the road by the home, natural surroundings and a 10-foot high privacy fence (at the front of the property only). The neighborhood is a mix of residential and commercial. Neighbors include full-time residents, a local pub, a deli, a self-serve carwash and a gas station/mini mart. Be aware that though there is a visual privacy, the carwash can be heard when in use and noise from the pub may be heard. We have had very few mentions from guests about either of these establishements. Please contact our office if you have any questions about the proximity of the road or any other questions about the property. Members of our staff have stayed at this home, and loved it!

Walk To: There are 2 bars, a restaurant and community pool within walking distance. (Stumptown Brewery and Tavern McHugh's are two doors down; the Rio Nido Roadhouse is less than a 10 minute walk. Both Stumptown and the Rio Nido Roadhouse have live music on a regular basis. The restaurant Tavern McHugh's is next to Stumptown.) Great Wine Country location! Korbel winery and vineyards are only 0.2 miles east. The walk to downtown Guerneville is over 1.5 miles but completely flat.

Shared Yard: Culture Blend shares the lawn and river access with Contente, a similar 4 bedroom, 4 bath home that also sleeps 14 guests. Together, the homes make up the property known as The Enchanted Forest Estate.

Please note that there is an annual event, the Russian River Beer Revival, that happens over the third weekend in August. This is a weekend event at the brewery immediately next door to Culture Blend. The event has live music, a BBQ cook-off, and a lot of people drinking beer. It will be loud on the Friday and Saturday of the event.

Awesome hangout spot for our group of 13. The kitchen was fully equipped, but if you’re not into cooking, there’s a number of breweries, cafes, and restaurants within easy walking or driving distance. The rec room with ping pong, foosball, pool, and air hockey table had something for everyone. We especially enjoyed walking down to the river from the backyard and soaking in the hot tub in the evenings. Would highly recommend!-via Airbnb

Definitely a good idea to read prior guests' reviews! At least then you are prepared for any 'oddities' of a particular place. I am glad I did, and we had a very nice stay. As mentioned by others, access to the downstairs game room is a bit odd, but the place is very large/spacious and overall a very good stay. We had an issue with the heating (over a holiday weekend, of course!), but RiverHomes (host) did their best to find a heating company to come fix it. Good response time from RiverHomes. Loved the spaciousness and amenities at the house. Overall a very nice place!-via Airbnb

Very nice place! My guest and I had a really nice time. The views from the Russian river are beautiful and soo serene! The only thing their is a car wash right next door and is a lil loud when ur enjoying sitting and relaxing on the deck. If u get out there's a Brewery walking distance and was nice! I would definitely use Russian Rivers homes to find me a vacation home tat fits my needs, can't wait!!

The property is at a great location with access to the river and breweries. The river was shallow for kids of all ages to have fun, without the parents having to be worried. The game room was were the group spent most of their time. Overall a very enjoyable experience made possible by a great stay, in a lovely home.

Culture Blend is in Guerneville with a beautiful grassy yard leading right down to the river. Best things are the fun amenitiies -- air hockey, pool table, ping pong, foosball, kayaks, TVs in every room. The kitchen is also well stocked, and we found everything we needed to cook 3 meals a day for our crew of 12. Nice open floorplan feels great. The hot tub was also wonderful.on the downside -- this house is RIGHT NEXT TO A CAR WASH, and the noise of the air dryers was very loud. It is also 3 doors down from a brewery, and the drunken floating party was a real drag on Saturday. There were random people who walked through our yard looking for the brewery. The TV and internet did not work all the time. The bed in our bedroom was VERY uncomfortable, really needs to be replaced.Despite some of the downsides, we had a great time and would rent Culture Blend again in the future. We hope the house management will do what they can to upgrade the internet and the faulty bed -- and also warn folks that they are renting a place next to a car wash.

Culture Blend and Contente were wonderful for our extended family to spend 3 nights

We loved our 3-night stay in these 2 side-by-side houses. Guerneville is a great location to serve as a base for enjoying the surrounding area (Goat Rock State Beach, Armstrong Redwood State Park, as well as many delightful wineries and breweries). There were 14 of us (extended family): 5 couples and 4 singles; only 1 person had to sleep on the pull-out sofa. The beds were comfy with plenty of loft for the cold weather (we were there in December). We used the kitchen in Contente as our dining base; plenty of space for us all to eat and then enjoy board games afterward. Later, the younger generation enjoyed pool and ping pong in the garage/basement.The only snags were a broken heater in one of the suites, which was fixed the next day, and some lights that were out in the garage (a flipped circuit). The staff was responsive and other than that, everything was great. Remember to bring your own shampoo and a box of kleenex if, like me, you are an allergy sufferer.I highly recommend this place and would definitely return.

Game room was fun for the whole family!

We stayed with a group of friends and family and couldn't have asked for a better place. The home is spacious and well stocked, the games room on the lower level was a bonus for our kids, and the outdoor space is amazing. It's located on a great spot on the river, so we were able to enjoy floating and the kids spent hours swimming and playing in the water. There were inflatable rafts, kayaks, and lifejackets available for us to use, which made spending time on the water even more enjoyable. The home is conveniently located close to town, wineries, and restaurants. I highly recommend this home for your stay in Guerneville and I hope to come back!-Airbnb Guest-

The house was very well appointed. The river and hot tub are great. The house is situated conveniently on the main road, however, the traffic is a bit noisy.
