The Grove

Description

Welcome to The Grove, a world of privacy, with redwood-covered ridgetops above and redwood forests below. Perched on a hill above the Russian River, The Grove is an amenity-loaded haven for your Sonoma County stay.

Is BBQing your thing? The Grove has a lovely back deck equipped with a large gas grill, outdoor dining table, bistro seating, wine barrel gas fire pit, all arranged to maximize the redwood and partial river views. Or, do you want to watch the big game? The home theatre system, with 120 inch projector screen and surround sound, is great for watching sports and movies. Looking forward to a soak in the Hot Tub? Climb into the secluded spa and look up and you will see how The Grove got its name: you are surrounded by a fairy ring of towering 175 foot redwood trees that lead your gaze to the stars.

Is Gourmet Coffee your passion? Treat yourself to a European style espresso with a Nespresso pod, a cup of French Press drip or Pour Over freshly ground beans. Looking to explore? Both the Russian River and the town of Monte Rio are within walking distance. The Sonoma Coast, numerous Russian River Valley wineries and the neighboring towns of Guerneville, Duncan's Mills and Occidental are all a short drive away.

The Grove is a delightful property with two levels of ample living space, perfect for groups that want a little space to spread out. And it was one of the featured homes in the SonomaCounty.com article "8 Gorgous Redwood Vacation Homes in Sonoma County." Enjoy the article: http://www.sonomacounty.com/blog/8-gorgeous-redwood-vacation-homes-sonom...

Upper Level (entry level): The entry level has the main kitchen, living and dining room, two bedrooms, one bathroom, and the main deck. The kitchen is well equipped and well-stocked with everything needed to cook. The living/dining room has a comfortable sofa and chairs and the dining table seats 6-8. Sets of French doors lead out to the deck. The upstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and en suite bath with shower (the only upstairs bathroom). The second bedroom has a queen bed and charming French doors that lead to the side deck - the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee.

Lower Level: The lower level has a living area, kitchenette (no stove), deck, bedroom and bathroom. The lower living area has cable TV and a double sleeper sofa. The large bedroom has a king bed. The downstairs bathroom is lovely, with both a walk-in shower and a soaking tub.

Lovely setting for a family reunion of 3 couples. Two spacious, well equipped kitchens. We visited many Russian River wineries during the day, and cooked dinners at the house at night. I highly recommend.

Location, layout and amenities of the house is great. Until you get the hang of the narrow and winding roads leading to the house is a bit challenging and recommend your first arrival is during daylight. Lots to do in all of the towns in this vacinity. Suggestion: I am assuming there were a few weeks since the previous renters as we found upon arrival many dead flies, cob webs and dust in the house and large debree on the steps leading into the house. Found cigarette butts in the ashtrays outside too. Perhaps you could consider someone doing a spotcheck before guests arrive at 4 pm. We did enjoy ourselves. Thank you for this opportunity to share ideas for improvement.

Manager Response:

Hello! Thank you for the review and feedback. Unless it's a same day booking, we do have someone check houses before guests arrive. It might be the same day or the day or two before and this person does a quick deck sweep (or uses a blower) and looks over the cleaning and such. Unfortunately, it only takes one good breeze and the redwoods drop a whole new round of debris! At my house, I can sweep daily and still have more to do! But we still love our redwoods! We are even happy to send the cleaners back out to a house if you find any issues. Guests should contact the office if they find anything amiss. We are happy to help. 

We  do try to give an accurate description of the roads - they are tricky, and this information is included in the listing information that guests see before booking, and in the arrival instructions sent to the guests.

For future guests of The Grove - GPS and online maps are not always accurate, so please, please do use the driving directions that we provide - they are the best way to get to the house.

It was amazing to wake up among the trees, and the hot tub under the trees was icing on the cake. We would love to come back again. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a couple family dinners while we were staying here. We loved the different kinds of coffee makers too. The house has a lot of amenities and entertainment options, with a book full of instructions if we had any questions. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Thank you for an amazing stay!

The home is an unexpected surprise perched on a steep hill with all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay plus some! Huge Screen Projection TV! Wonderfully equipped kitchens! Every type of coffee maker that exists, hot tub, bbq, etc., etc. We celebrated a pre-Thanksgiving with our children from Oakland and Chicago, we’re from Portland, Oregon. Other than the smoke from the nearby fires, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had a wonderful time at this property. It was perfect for six adults. We did have an issue which was quickly addressed by Jordan and we were so pleased. This property has every detail thought out. We watched several movies on the projector TV and had many nights out on the top deck sitting around the fire pit. The hot was the perfect solution to long day at the wineries - LOL! We were so excited about the guitar that the owners encourage you to use because we had a seasoned player with us. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home and THANK YOU Jordan for all of your help!

This place is a gem. Perfect for us. From all the amenities to the surroundings. Stocked with everything we could have needed. The only thing was the entertainment systems were so confusing and didn't work properly half the time. We ended up just not using it. It was better for it.

-We have remedied the problem with the entertainment system. Thank you for your note! In the event that guests have any issues we are most happy to work in real time to resolve any technical difficulties. We encourage guests to contact our office right away so that we can help. :)

The Grove is a wonderful place to vacation. Perfect location, great facilities, a super easy place to immediately settle in and enjoy it. Everything is well thought out and we didn't have to worry about anything. Added bonus of a huge projector screen so we could snuggle and watch a movie too. As it was October, it got a little chilly in the evenings, but the fire and heating kept us super warm and cozy. There was 6 of us and a toddler staying there, so we put the toddler and parents downstairs and they could pretty much stay self-contained. (Perfect for us that wanted to sleep in!)

We had such a wonderful, relaxing 9-night getaway at The Grove. The setting is gorgeous and serene, with the house surrounded by redwood trees and even a view down to the river. The house was lovely and very well appointed - and so organized! The beds and furniture were really comfortable, and we loved the nice decorative touches. It felt very homey yet updated, and the owners did a really nice job of having things like games, musical instruments, a great entertainment set-up, and nice amenities for our dog. The management company was a pleasure to work with, and very responsive. We will definitely be going back!

We absolutely loved the house, the amenities and the view! It was a great place to relax and unwind. The house was exactly as shown in the pictures. We have no regrets and wanted to stay longer.

The only recommendation we have is for guests to arrive before dark as it is difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area.

Our stay at The Grove was absolutely wonderful! The managers of the property have thought of everything to make our stay easy, comfortable and very enjoyable. The view of the redwoods from the hot tub is unbelievable and the projector is such a great, added touch.

In addition, the customer service was exemplary!

Attention to detail, cleanliness, decor, setup...All breathtaking! Some rentals feel like a rental. The Grove was so cozy and welcoming, we felt "at home" when we arrived. Particularly loved the movie screen option and TV setup (Netflix, etc). So much to do while it was raining! Will definitely be back.

We had a lovely stay at this well-equipped immaculate home overlooking the Russian River. The stairs getting down to the place (and back up) with loads of stuff we a bit daunting but manageable. The hot tub in among the redwoods was spectacular and unique. Great entertainment system. A great time was had by all. I would say it is best for up to 6 people (3 couples) since the 7th person would not have a bedroom or regular bed.

We wanted to get away from the busy Silicon Valley, and rented this house for the Thanksgiving weekend. What a find! This house has everything you need to feel at home. From the relaxing hot tub to the various thoughtful touches, we all had a great time. The road leading up to the house takes a little getting used to, but once you are in the house, you just feel at home. Our kids loved the downstairs. All the bedrooms are very comfortable, and the TVs are awesome! We loved the Nespresso - we have one at our home and we're delighted to find one at the rental! The redwoods are majestic, and put you in a Zen state. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to be back.
