Riverside Lodge

Description

Riverside Lodge is a modern riverfront home with lofted ceilings and an open floor plan. It is one of the most desirable vacation rentals on the Russian River. The spacious living-dining-kitchen area features a gas fireplace, a dining table for 8 people, and an amenity full kitchen with Corian countertops and modern appliances. A wall of windows showcases fabulous views of the Russian River; sliding glass doors open to a large riverfront deck.

This one level home is located on the upper level. The 6 person hot tub is set on the ground level patio next to the game room with a pool table and a ping pong table. A stairway leads down to a private deep water river dock with a canoe and three kayaks (2 singles and one double). Riverside Lodge is located approximately 1 mile from downtown Guerneville in a tight-knit residential community. The home is within walking distance to a local neighborhood beach, a 5 minute drive to Northwood Golf Course and only a short drive to the Sonoma Coast, Bodega Bay and Jenner.

We rented this home for our daughter's 16 B-Day celebration and the setting was picture perfect and the house was absolutely ideal for our gathering. The house is so peaceful at night and so light and bright during the day. The kitchen is literally the BEST stocked kitchen of any rental we have ever stayed at. The open living area was lovely for the family and girls to hang out and play games and the play room downstairs was fabulous! I didn't realize how much fun it is to play ping pong...we are all inspired to get our own tables. The property is very well maintained and the beds are SO comfy! We loved the deck and had breakfast and dinner there...the view of the water and the trees was magical. The location is awesome, because it is so close to town. I highly recommend this property...you won't want to leave! We hope to stay there again in the near future!

"Excellent Vacation Place! 3x Rented!"

5 of 5

Riverside Lodge is a wonderful home with everything you might need for a fun weekend with friends or family! We enjoyed our 3rd stay at the house last weekend and are looking forward to another weekend next year. You cannot go wrong with this wonderful modern house on the river in the redwoods. I highly recommend this house for your stay at Russian River!!

"Spacious Home, and perfect for Family Reunion"

5 of 5

We rented the house next door, Riviera Retreat and this lovely home and it was just absolutely perfect for our extended family reunion. We especially enjoyed the spacious kitchen with all its amenities and the large outdoor deck for family gatherings. We had so much fun using the game room, hot tub and water toys! Between the two houses, we had almost all the kayaks, and canoes needed but we did rent two additional double kayaks from King's Sport & Tackle for our day visitors. It was especially convenient to just walk over next door to visit, and to lend eggs. :-) The Russian River Vacation Home folks made it easy to check in/check out. Thank you!

Manager Response:

Thank you for the thoughtful review!

I'm sure guests enjoy both Riviera Retreat and Riverside Lodge - they are great as a pair or individually! As the guest mentioned, King's Sport and Tackle makes it easy to get extra boats delivered if you need more than the ones provided at the house. There's just so much to do!

I hope we'll see you again soon!

"Great location, Gorgeous setting & well maintained"

5 of 5

You can tell there is a lot of love in this home. The owners take good care to make sure you have everything you need in terms of bedding, games, books, toys and kitchen supplies. Great house to get away with family and friends. Comfortable with a big open great room and well-situated (just outside of Guerneville and short drive to Safeway.) Nice, quiet ocation on the river- just between the 2 dams. Only downfalls are street noise from 116 and not a great neighborhood beach but with lots of sunny lounging spots and water toys to float on the river you don't really miss it! We had a wonderful week there & will be back!

Manager Response:

Hello and thank you for sharing a review with future guests!

We love Riverside Lodge and are glad you enjoy it as well! The neighborhood beach is a little walk away and when the summer dams are in, it's not very big. When the dams are out, but before we get much rain, it's a nice wide beach to run around with dogs and kids.

I hope we'll see you again soon!

"Gorgeous home!"

5 of 5

I stayed here with 5 of my friends and we had a wonderful time. It was an ideal location right next to the Russian River, with a gorgeous view of the sunrise from the patio. We really enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and the hot tub as well. I'd definitely recommend to anyone interested in staying in the area.

"Riverside Lodge"

5 of 5

We loved staying here. The kitchen was amazing for a rental. We could tell the owners take pride in the place. We had everything we needed to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We also loved that we could bring our dogs with us. This is a big plus!!!

"Our stay will be forever memorable"

4 of 5

This was the first time our group of friends had gone for an out of town overnight stay, and I can honestly say that Riverside Lodge fulfilled all of our expectations. All of us had a wonderful time during the 2 days we spent at Riverside Lodge. Everything was very easily accessible and best part about the lodge was how close we were to the calm river and the lush green surroundings. I loved going for a run along the road and witnessing the beautiful early morning. The little shops and markets gave us a glimpse of a desired laid back life-a true feel of what a vacation should be like. We were lucky to have a friendly staff that was very helpful getting us some of the items we had left back at the lodge. We would absolutely recommend this vacation home and of course, come back for another stay very soon!

"Wonderful Stay"

5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Riverside Lodge. The home was fully stocked with everything we needed, extremely clean, in a great location and had a beautiful view of the river. I loved waking up in the morning and having my coffee on the deck, listening to the water flowing down the river and all the animals waking up. The property managers were very helpful and responsive when we had questions or special requests. I will definitely rent from them again.

Manager Response:

Hi!
And thank you for the review - it's an honor to have such praise from someone in the business as well! I hope you had a chance to see the river otters, herons or osprey that are so delightful here!

"An incredible place to let go of stress and spend time with fami"

5 of 5

We had family from out of town and the combination of the well equipped kitchen, all the bedrooms on the same level, peaceful deck and relaxing hottub made for an incredible time. With vineyards nearby (stop at Moshin and Lambert Bridge!) and a beautiful coast down the road, this was a perfect vacation that our family continues to rave about!

Manager Response:

How great!
We're so glad you were able to show off the area to your family and chose Riverside Lodge to do it! Moshin is one of my favorites too - try the Moshin Potion if you like a dessert wine - heavenly! And Lambert Bridge is very dog-friendly.

Hope we'll see you again!

"Fantastic get away"

5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the Riverside Lodge. Being right next to the river was so peaceful and absolutely gorgeous. The hot tub was great and we had a great time playing ping pong and pool in the game room. Wonderful retreat!

"Great place to spend a relaxing (and rainy) weekend"

5 of 5

We had a great weekend at the Riverside Lodge. Best things about this house: the fantastic views of the river from the house and deck; the entire back of the house is an enormous open room surrounded by windows and perfect for entertaining large groups; the kitchen worked great for multiple cooks and had everything we needed (except a rice cooker, which we brought with us); and the game room downstairs provided hours of fun (we didn't even mind the fact that it rained almost constantly the entire weekend!).The only drawback was that this place really only sleeps six comfortably--to fit eight people, two people have to sleep in the main room, which wouldn't be a problem except that many of the windows (and this room is almost all windows) don't have curtains or blinds, so forget about sleeping-in unless the sun shining in your eyes and lack of privacy don't bother you. One suggestion--make sure you use your GPS when driving to the house for the first time; otherwise the turn-off is impossible to find (even the locals weren't familiar with this street).The house was well-stocked with everything we needed, everything was labeled to make things easy to find, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We definitely feel like we hit the jackpot with this place, and will consider returning again (next time with just 6 people, though). I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spend a scenic and fun weekend in Russian River, especially in a group of 4 to 6 people.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for the review! We're glad you had a great time at Riverside Lodge. We try to describe the sleeping arrangements as clearly as possible, and this house sleeps two people per bedroom and 2 people in the living room with big glorious windows. We highly recommend that folks use our written directions (provided in the reservation packet) since some GPS and car navigation systems don't do well out here! Trust us - we wrote them from experience, not an online system.

I hope we'll see you again soon!

"Best cabin & location ever!"

3 of 5

The Riverside Lodge was absolutely wonderful. Located right on the river, the views were beautiful. It had everything that we could possibly want...ping pong & pool tables, kayak & canoe + hot tub (which we never actually used, but should have!) The house was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need to prepare meals. Plus, it is pet friendly, so we were able to bring out 2 dogs. Truly one of the nicest places I've stayed...I can't wait to go again.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thanks for the awesome review - we think Riverside Lodge is pretty awesome too. With all the great amenities and kudos, we wonder why only 3 stars?

"Always a great time!"

5 of 5

We have rented this home 3 times. The home is in a prime location -- a quiet and picturesque portion of the river and close to town. The home is clean, modern, and very comfortable and well stocked and maintained.

Manager Response:

Riverside Lodge certainly has a loyal fan club. Hope to see you back for a fourth visit!

"The perfect place!"

5 of 5

The Riverside Lodge was the perfect place for a long weekend with friends! We enjoyed everything about it. The location couldn't be any better - perched above the beautiful meandering Russian River. The home has every amenity you could ask for. We rent homes often on vacation. This home was amongst the best we have ever rented. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to prepare great meals. The home was incredibly clean and well taken care of. There is a Safeway store just up the street to stock up on groceries. There are great restaurants nearby too. We loved exploring the area and spent two days in wine country which was fantastic. We highly recommend this house!

Manager Response:

Thank you!
We are so very glad you loved Riverside Lodge as much as we do! I hope we'll see yo next year too!

"Home away from home"

This was the perfect house for a ladies weekend away. The house and property was exactly as described on website. We loves how secluded and quiet it was. Thanks south for the beautiful, comfortable accommodations. This will always be our first choice when returning to the River!

I booked the Riverside Lodge for a 30th birthday get together. It rained all weekend, so our group stayed inside reading books, playing games, eating and drinking. We also made use of the hot tub! We were all envious of the kitchen and wish we could cook there all the time. Beds were comfortable and the place was very nice and clean. The view was beautiful, even with the rain. We were a little disappointed that the access to the river was not open yet (we knew it would be a possibility) and we were also a bit disappointed that the game room is not directly enterable from inside the house. You have to go outside and down the stairs to enter the gaming room. With that being said, our group would have spent little time there anyway. I would recommend the house to others.

Manager Response:

Hello!
Thank you for the review and sharing your thoughts - we appreciate it! The owners have done a great job making sure the beds and sofa bed are cozy and comfortable - no duds here. And the view is gorgeous and kitchen modern and easy to use. We try to describe the game room as accurately as possible on our website - access to the game room is from the lower patio. This past year the owners added a spiral staircase from the back deck to the lower patio, so you don't have to go around to the front of the house. It's great!

"Special holiday retreat with friends on the river"

5 of 5

Yet another fabulous stay at the Riverside Lodge. My friends and I have almost made it a ritual to go up over the holidays to relax and enjoy this cozy house with its great view, game room, fireplace and wonderful kitchen. Truly a find for anyone who wants a getaway by the river.

Manager Response:

Hi!

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time here!! The house is open and light and it comes complete with everything including a coffee grinder. We had breaky every morning on the deck to enjoy the spectacular views and kayaked and canoed in the afternoons. Couldn't have asked for a better place for all of us to catch up!Sara and Megan were also a great help with any questions we had!!

"Wonderful stay"

4 of 5

Stayed at the Riverside lodge over the 4th of July week. Great house, deck is huge with beautiful views up and down the river. Kitchen has everything you would need and more. The only thing was we had to buy paper towels and toilet paper, figured it should be stocked. We were 2 families with 2 kids and 1 dog and had plenty of room. The dock is big with 1 kayak and 1 canoe. Unless your dog can teach them self to climb a ladder ( which ours did) onto the dock from the water, a dog can't get up after they jump in which kind of defeats the purpose of bringing your dog that loves water. We did also encounter a gas smell, so we turned of the gas fireplace but I still smelled it, I am thinking it came from the house across the street, which looked like a utility house for the city. Rrvh came right over when we notified them of any problem. Overall we loved our stay and would book it again.

Manager Response:

Hi!

Thank you for the review! We love Riverside Lodge too!

And I'm happy to clarify about the supplies int he house. We stock all of our vacation homes with a starter supply of paper towels, TP, soap, etc. For toilet paper this means there's one full roll on the holder and two full rolls nearby (in a cabinet, on a shelf, every house is a bit different) in each bathroom. We use an eco-friendly TP with a high content of recycled material, minimal packaging and it is septic system appropriate. For paper towels there should always be one roll on the dispenser and a second one hiding somewhere in the kitchen. There is a 24 hour Safeway in Guerneville with all the supplies folks could want as well.

And you have a smart dog! The water level is a little different each year, but I think most folks find ways to help their dogs back up onto the dock.

Thank you again!

We really liked this place. It is comfortable, quiet, and really well stocked. We liked having a canoe and kayak just out the door. We would love to return.

"Delightful Home"

5 of 5

Except for our complaint about the mattress on the living room convertible couch (which has been remedied, we are told), we thoroughly enjoyed the home, especially the kitchen.

Manager Response:

I can confirm that the couch in question has been replaced.The owners are wonderful hosts and want each guests' experience to be excellent, so as soon as you informed us about the sofa bed, they acted. First they purchased a new mattress, and when that still felt short of comfortable, they replaced it with a brand new sofa bed. And if the new sofa bed feels anything like it looks, it just may be the most comfortable sofa bed in the history of the world! Glad to hear everything else about the home was enjoyable. We hope you will be back!

""Peace lies not in the world but in the man who walks it's path""

The mere essence of a vacation is to renew your inner self and find a peaceful place for your soul.Riverside Lodge provides that tranquillity and elegance one needs to regenerate your mind and body. The house is set amongst the redwood trees overlooking the river. The architecture is blended with nature and makes you feel as part of the landscape. Our kids love the gameroom and the hot tub was a delight to use just as the sun is about to set. This place touches my soul and I highly recommend it.

Manager Response:

Thank you for the thoughtful review!

"Great stay"

4 of 5

We all very much enjoyed our stay here. Clean house, comfortable, very well equipped kitchen. Our biggest complaint however was that the hot water ran out very fast- after only 2 showers. We'd definitely consider staying here again though!

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for leaving a review! We love the house too...
Unfortunately, most homes in this area have propane hot water heaters and they need a little time to heat the next batch of water. We wait 15 to 30 minutes between showers in my house and it works great.

"Beautiful place and view"

5 of 5

Overall it was a great stay. The house was beautiful and had all of the kitchen items we needed during our stay. The connected deck and view were also fantastic. The only thing I would have liked was a stairway on the deck down to the spa & game room. It was hard getting down there at night when having to go out the front door and down around the building.

Manager Response:

Hello!

Thank you for sharing with future guests! The owner is considering how to add a staircase, just as you suggested, without needing to remove any of the lovely trees... It's a good puzzle, but one that's in the works!

Megan Perkins
Russian River Vacation Homes

3/25/11 To add to the above response - The spiral staircase is in! Now you can get from the deck directly to the hot tub area and game room without needing to go through the house. And there is a gate at the top of the staircase, so the back deck hasn't lost any of it's toddler friendliness.

"Great, Secluded & Private Fully Furnished Home!"

5 of 5

A group of friends and I recently rented the Riverside Lodge for a quick weekend getaway from the City, and could not have asked for better accommodations. The house not only was well kept, modern, comfortable and clean, but the addition of the game room really made our evening as we enjoyed the fall temps and hot tub! A spaciously laid out kitchen can make or break a house, and this kitchen allowed for us to enjoy everyone's company while cooking/cleaning while everyone helped and hung out in the living room.Since it was off season, we didn't get to enjoy the river since the dock was removed, but the neighborhood was super quiet and we were surrounded by beautiful trees on all sides. The decks are amazing for grilling out and enjoying the night sky and a couple adult beverages. All 7 of us would easily recommend this place to anyone who would want to get away. We'll likely be back to enjoy the River in the summer time.

"Guerneville Get Together"

5 of 5

The Riverside Lodge is in a great location, and is short walk from town. We came into town for some meals, ice cream (Flavors Unlimited) and to get groceries. The house was set up nicely for the 7 of us. We were either preparing meals, lounging on the deck, or relaxing in the hot tub. The open kitchen and living area was where we started and ended our days. The kayak and canoe were icing on the cake. We searched the area for other houses for rent, but the Riverside Lodge is where we want to return next year.

Manager Response:

Hello!

I'm glad you found one of my favorite spots to get ice cream! If you ever need a recommendation for getting sweets - I'm your gal! Maybe you're the guest that left Popsicles in the freezer! They didn't last long!

Riverside Lodge is a fantastic house for family get togethers or get-aways... Hope we see you next year!

"Perfect river get-away with all the comforts of home"

4 of 5

We had a great time at Riverside Lodge enjoying the facilities. Great view from the house and the dock which was situated to allow views up and down the river. The gourmet kitchen was extremely well equipped. Only complaint was that the hot tub cushions were a bit worn. We'd definitely go back!

"The Perfect Setting"

5 of 5

My wife and I recently enjoyed a long Valentine's Day weekend in Guerenville, and stayed at the Riverside Lodge. The accommodations were awesome, including one of the best views of the river either of us had ever experienced. The kitchen is well-stocked, and distance to restaurants/downtown is awesome. It's dog friendly, too!The management team also earns 5 stars. They were completely top notch from beginning to end.

Manager Response:

Hi Eric,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a nice review! Riverside Lodge is an awesome home and I'm glad to hear that you and your wife enjoyed it. Come back and visit us again!

"Relaxation with Friends at its Best"

5 of 5

Between the friendly staff, clear directions, amazing view and wonderful amenities I give the whole experience five stars!Looking out as the fog rolled up over the treeline and down to the water while I sipped my coffee by the fireplace, I have to say it was a great moment, and it continued on that way during my whole stay. The house was fully stocked with games, stereo, pool table, hot tub, and not to mention has an amazing kitchen to cook in. I really can't say anything bad about the experience and highly recommend working with Russian River Vacation Homes and staying here at Riverside Lodge.

Manager Response:

Thanks for the glowing review! br
We love Riverside Lodge too... And the view, the fog, fireplace and a good cuppa coffee!

"Home Away from Home for the Holidays"

5 of 5

This was our third Christmas at Riverside Lodge. When we drove up and saw the entry lined with holiday lights, a wreath homemade with forest sprigs and tied with a red ribbon on the door and then the mantle garland and the velvet stockings already hung we knew we were home for the holidays.Each morning through the wall of windows overlooking the river we watched the thick cotton candy fog slowly dissolve to a slick mist and then to random pockets tucked into the hills. We tried our best and succeeded for the most part not to leave the lodge except for long walks with our toodle Bo, sometimes despite the rain which was ever so gentle. The kitchen is so well equipped that each year I really look forward to assembling meals around a huge pot of stoup (stew/soup) that lasts for days and feeds us while we work jigsaw puzzles, read and have our local friends come by. The hot tub and pool table ensure there is plenty for everyone to do.Having lived in Guerneville many years ago, I am never sure which season I miss the most on the river. One thing for sure, as long as I can come home to Riverside Lodge for the holidays, I wont miss winter in the redwoods. Riverside Lodge owners have created a truly special home away from home and the great folks as the Russian River Vacation Homes are always so helpful and professional. We will be back!

Manager Response:

So glad you enjoyed the home!
