Description

The Rhondavous should be called The Rhonda-View! Guests enjoy panoramic views of the Russian River from every room of the house (minus the bathrooms). This sunny, window-studded 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom cabin is a great place to relax and immerse yourself in our laid-back river lifestyle.

Built back in the Russian River’s initial heyday, The Rhondavous was originally the general store for Summerhome Park residents and river travelers. Canoes could pull up to a dock, send up their order and receive their purchases on a zip line, all without leaving their boat.

Perched high above the river, The Rhondavous is tucked away from the road by a large private fence. There isn’t much to see from the road, but once you open the gate and step inside, the stunning view and charming cabin will simultaneously take your breath away and melt away the stress of the world. The large deck at The Rhondavous has an outdoor dining table and propane barbecue.

Entrances to all sections of the cabin are accessed from the deck. At the top level (road level), there are two exterior doors opposite each other. The door to the left leads to the main living space, which has an open living area and kitchen. The door to the right opens to a granny unit with a Queen bed and a full bathroom with a shower. Exterior stairs from the main deck take you down to 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (also with showers) and a bonus room with recreation items and a Double futon. From the lower level, gated stairs continue down to the river, which has private deep river access.

The Rhondavous is a member of the Highcroft community and has access to Highcroft Beach (not shown) - a quieter spot which allows dogs before 11:00 am and after 4:00 pm - just a short walk from The Rhondavous. The beach shown in the photographs is the Summerhome Park Beach which is for members and residents of Summerhome Park only. The Summerhome Park Lodge is open to both members and guests when open (except when rented for private parties).

Know Before You Book:

Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at The Rhondavous is 8. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time.

Parking: There is a narrow space in front of the house for 1 larger vehicle or up to 2 small size cars. Please be careful to pull vehicles fully off the road to allow room for everyday traffic and emergency vehicles. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance.

Bed Sizes: Master bedroom: Queen bed; Second bedroom: Queen bed; Third bedroom: 2 Twin beds; Bonus room: Double futon.

Heat Source: Woodstove (no firewood provided); portable electric heaters

Driving to Summerhome Park: Summerhome Park Road is a narrow, one-lane country road - you may need to pull over for oncoming traffic. It is, at times, steep with sharp turns, and the road is paved but not necessarily smooth. Additionally, the surrounding side streets are narrow and steep with little to no street parking or shoulder

Common Amenities not Included: No dishwasher.

Dogs: Dogs are most certainly welcome at The Rhondavous. However, guests should be aware that Highcroft Beach only allows dogs in the morning and evenings (specific hours posted at the beach) and guests and dogs are not allowed at the Summerhome Park beach.

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

Lovely getaway!

Reviewed on 2020-09-22 by Abby M.

We loved everything about the Rhondavous. The views of the river were beautiful, and from every room. And the sunny patio was perfect for outdoor meals and river watching. Our dog especially loved watching us below in the kayaks, and watching people and ducks float by. The beds were comfortable, and the rec room has a futon, effectively turning it into a 4th bedroom. Some things to keep in mind: there is no inside staircase between the kitchen/livingroom area and the downstairs bedrooms. This wasn't really a problem for us, but might be for someone who has smaller kids and is planning to stay upstairs, or if it's cold or rainy. There isn't a dishwasher, BUT there are two sets of kitchen sinks, which makes clean-up quick if many hands are helping. What a lovely stay and a lovely stretch of river.

Extraordinary Experience

I first came to Summer Home Park when I was 5 and my experience of bringing my grandchildren back here last week was both nostalgic and created new memories we hope to continue as a tradition at this amazing property!!!! We loved The Rhondavous!
