Description

The Enchanted Forest property features two 4 bedroom, 4 bath homes situated on three acres of riverfront property. The two spacious homes, Contente and Culture Blend, offer sleeping accommodations for 28 people. Each home features a 3 bedroom main house, a separate 1 bedroom suite, 2 kitchens, a recreation room and a spa. The main living spaces offer high ceilings, hardwood floors and a large open living/dining room. The fully equipped kitchens come complete with new appliances and breakfast areas. Many of the rooms, including both living rooms and 6 of the 8 bedrooms, feature glass doors leading out to large decks facing the river with outdoor dining and gas grills.

Both homes offer large garages with recreation rooms. Culture Blend has a pool table, ping pong, foosball, air hockey and video games. Off the patio is a spa with a gazebo. Contente has a pool table, ping pong table and a spa on the patio above the yard.

Enjoy excellent access to the Russian River from this riverfront property. Fishing, swimming and boating opportunities await just a short walk away. To access, walk down the custom rock stairway and across the tree-filled lawn to the short path leading to a large river beach. During the summer months, 2 boats are included (1 canoe and 1 kayak).

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at Enchanted Forest Estate is 28. 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 8 vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes:
Culture Blend: 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

Contente: Main House: First Bedroom: Queen Bed; Second Bedroom: Queen Bed; Third Bedroom: Queen Bed; ; Main Living Room: 2 Queen Sofa Beds
Suite: Suite Bedroom: King Bed; Suite Living Room: Queen Sofa Bed

Heat Source: Both homes have central gas heat. The recreation rooms have small portable electric heaters.

A/C: The houses do 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.

Location: The Enchanted Forest Estate 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 property and loved it!

Additional Amenities: Both homes provide televisions in the bedrooms and living rooms. Recreation room items: foosball, pool table, air hockey, ping pong, arcade basketball, karaoke and video games.

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

Please note that there is an annual event, the Russian River Beer Revival, that happens around 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. The exact dates of the event will be listed on the Stumptown Brewery's website.

Had a fantastic time at both Culture and Contente homes. Super convenient to have kayaks and other River floaties available right on the property. Game room was well utilized- great to have billiard tables and air hockey too. Car wash next door to Culture was a bit loud when dining outside, u just feel like there is a waterfall nearby. If you have the windows open at night then you will hear the road traffic. Outstanding customer response team and super helpful staff. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!-via Airbnb

Staying at the Enchanted Forest was lots of terrific! ... with a few unavoidable downsides. The downside mentioned in the property descriptions are the road and carwash noise and we didn't understand in advance the fact that all the living space is on the second floor. Everything has to be carried up. You have to go down one staircase, then up another to see someone in the other house. Four flights for a round trip. That said, the houses are wonderful! Fully equipped kitchens, spacious back deck where 20 of us ate our meals together, large dining room tables for buffets. The game rooms were well used by us for ping pong tournaments and air hockey. The hot tubs are great. The Culture Blend house had 4 little kayaks that were fun to paddle (with accessories.) The Contente house had canoes but they were too heavy for us to move down the riverbank stairs to get them to the water and back up. The yards are shaded and spacious. We brought croquet to play there. The river access is shallow but lovely. We saw ducks, ospreys, herons, and hawks. I'll also mention that we did a lot of nice walking from the house via the Old River Road and the El Nido road. Pretty and quiet once you cross the main road. You can walk to town or, for the hardy, even Armstrong Woods. The Safeway in town is a big, well-stocked store. We took a couple day trips to the coast. The wildlife at the mouth of the Russian River at Jenner is spectacular. I was impressed that the River Homes folks were very responsive to our requests, whether the office was open or closed. One oven wasn't working and they had an appliance repair person there the same day to fix it. Nice people.-via Airbnb

Hello Janet, We are so glad you got to view the property before your stay so you could get a general idea of what to expect, however the noise from the car wash varies! We are happy you and your family were able to have a great time at both homes and you all were a delight to host. Come and see us again anytime!

The Enchanted Forest vacation rental is fantastic! I hesitate to post a review only because it feels like such a hidden gem and I don't want any more competition for future rental opportunities! The homes are both so spacious, comfortable, and impeccably clean. With the large backyard, it feels like the home backs up to a small natural preserve and the river access is gorgeous. We stayed in February so the river was quite full and the weather was warm enough for several of us to take the kayaks out. We wine tasted at Equality Vines in downtown Guerneville which I'd also highly recommend! We absolutely look forward to staying again.

Awesome house on Russian River for reunion

We rented the two houses for a reunion weekend of 6 families (12 adults and 11 kids between the ages of 1 and 10). We all had a blast. There were plenty of space for all of us to sleep with multiple en-suite bathrooms that are convenient and provided privacy. We utilized the kitchen for both houses to cook our meals, as well as both grills on the deck, and ate in either dining rooms or on the deck. One day we did an oyster run to Hog Island and brought back oysters to eat raw and grill, YUM! It's only about a 40 min drive away. Some adults also went out wine tasting near by. The TV and sitting areas are nice with big sofas for the kids. The game rooms in the garage are great for slightly older kids and adults. There are plenty of outdoor space including the deck and back yard leading to the river. The appliances are clean, updated, and functional. The location is super convenient if you are driving up from San Francisco. Russian River is a beautiful and playing on the bank of the river was fun for the kids. I would highly recommend this place if you have a large gathering of families.Source: VRBOManager Response: We are so happy to hear that the Enchanted Forest was the right choice for such a special gathering. It sounds like you all had a wonderful time. Hog Island is a personal favorite of mine! Just reading about the BBQ oysters is making me hungry (admittedly, that's not difficult to do). We hope to have you back for a future stay. Ellen ~ Russian River Vacation Homes

Plenty of private rooms, yet large table to enjoy meals together. The game rooms were extra fun. Very clean, modern, with all the amenity. Everyone enjoyed them self so much, that we are thinking of coming back next year for their 1st Annv.
