Riverview

Description

Riverview is a truly charming, well-equipped home suitable for small groups and families. It’s located right on the edge of the redwood-lined Russian River. The views are spectacular from most rooms and the deck. The living is easy and relaxed with nothing but nature's beauty at its very best.

Guests can spread out between four bedrooms (two at each end of the house), large living and dining room, kitchen with breakfast nook and recreation room downstairs. The living room immediately invites relaxation with amazing views through the wall-to-wall windows, flat screen TV, games and sliding doors to the deck. Just step through the doors from the kitchen to the deck to BBQ-ing while watching the river go by.

On the west side of the house, enjoy the master bedroom with a king bed, sitting area and view of the river; guest bedroom with a king bed overlooking the front courtyard; full bathroom with tub, separate shower stall and view of the river off the hallway. The east side of the house offers 2 newly remodeled guest bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with 2 twin beds; newly remodeled full bathroom with shower/bathtub combo; a full kitchen, breakfast nook, half bath and laundry room round out the eastern end of the house.

A large private dock is accessed from the terraced backyard. During the summer months, the river is dammed, allowing for swimming and paddling in calm waters. A 3-person canoe and a 1-person kayak, with life vests, are available when summer dams are in (typically June 15th thru September 30th, or as determined by Russian River Parks & Recreation Department), weather and water levels permitting.

In addition to the large back deck and terraced yard facing the river, the front yard is fully fenced and serves as a shady courtyard patio. A large lemon tree shares fruit year round.

For star gazers, there’s a telescope and binoculars for bird and deer watching. A wood burning fireplace and central heat keep you cozy in the colder months.

The house is conveniently located a 15-minute walk (0.7 miles) to downtown Guerneville, which offers several selections of restaurants, bistros, bars, coffee shops, and Johnson’s Beach. Jump in the car – it’s just a 7-minute drive to the famous Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve to hike and picnic among the giant redwoods, 4 minutes to Korbel Winery and their yummy deli and 8 minutes to Porter-Bass Winery. Golfers, Northwood Golf Course is a 9 minute drive. So much, so close!

For the Summer of 2019: Many homes have waived the summer rotation days and lowered night minimums. Please search using your dates or inquire!

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

great house plenty of room. The patio overlooks the Russian River. Who was the Safeway about a mile from the house so we kept well supplied. Close to the wineries and a great Redwood forest for walking.

We had a great vacation at this home. The location is wonderful and the views excellent. We were fortunate to have great weather and were able to walk to town and enjoy dinner and drinks on the balcony.

The home itself was very functional although the beds were not comfortable. The home was well stocked from a dishes and pots/pans perspective but lacking in basic supplies.

Just a few changes will make this a five star property.

Lovely family house! My sisters and I brought our parents to Riverview following my father's heart surgery at UCDavis. Once he made his way up the stairs, his stay was the perfect way to begin his recovery. The house had everything we needed. The location was perfect, view was beautiful, fireplace was cozy, and the deck was a wonderful spot to relax and have nice meal. Six of us were up for the weekend, and the house's layout gave everyone plenty of their own space. I highly recommend this home, and the page in the welcome book that described how the owners came to acquire the house was a very touching addition.

This house is awesome! We booked the house as a first family vacation with a little one. The location is great. The house is right on the river. You can jump off the dock right into the river. The house has everything you need to enjoy the river like life vests and other water toys. It looked there were kayaks as well but we did not use them this time. The deck is large and perfect for relaxing after a day on the river or after exploring the area. The views from the deck are amazing and there’s a nice bbq you can use. It’s close to town and just a few minutes drive to local restaurants and bars. The house is also a short drive to Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve, which has some nice hikes. There is satellite TV and internet. The owners provided instructions on how to connect that were clear and easy to follow. This place is a gem! We look forward to coming back again with more family as there is plenty of space and it’s a nice getaway from the city.

I booked this house for a get together with my old high school friends. We just wanted a comfortable relaxing place to hang out and catch up. It was perfect! It was very clean and very comfortable. It had all the necessities. The location was great - we enjoyed using the boat and swimming from the dock. We loved sitting on the dock in the late afternoon and the upper deck in the morning - the view is amazing and beautiful. All the instructions were well-detailed. We really loved our weekend stay here and would love to come back. Imported from VRBO.

Even better this year because they built a new big deck on the water with new steps down and beautiful backyard landscaping.

This house exceeded my expectations. It was very comfortable and well stocked. It Is right on the river so the views are beautiful any time of day. It is a quick walk to town with access to the supermarket, restaurants, and fun stores. Don't miss driving to Duncan Mills for fresh ground coffee and baked goods, Goat Rock and Blind beaches south of Jenner and Armstrong Redwoods. We were able to bring our dog. They have a dock and you can swim easily to the beach on the other side of the river. There are water floats, beach towels, and a ping pong table. We didn't need to use the fireplace because the weather was perfect. We will probably make this a yearly trip.

A group of us (3 couples) had a blast at this great place. We enjoyed leisurely cups of coffee on the deck each morning, watching the most beautiful scenes of nature (and hot kayakers). The six of us wanted a place with easy access to downtown Guerneville, and this place proved perfect. We will absolutely come back.
