Wine Down

Delightful Riverfront Cottage

Description

Enjoy a glass of wine as you wind down the river at Wine Down. Formerly known as La Sonrisa, this 1924 cottage with old world charm, wood floors, custom cedar counter and walls of dual pane wood windows invites relaxation and creativity! Both the kitchen and living area overlook the ever-changing Russian River. Morning brings sunlight and in the evening a gas fireplace adds warmth and a cozy glow.

The kitchen is open to the dining and living areas so friends and family can gather to laugh and chat while cooking. Dine inside or out as weather permits.

Amble down one level to the hot tub, outdoor shower and laundry room. There's a staircase from the lowest level of the fern and thimbleberry-filled yard to the river in the summer months. Depending on the season, you'll have a shallow and gentle stretch of river and a long, wild, sandy (seasonal) island or playful and frisky Russian River for paddling and swimming. Merganser and Mallard ducklings bob and scoot about, swallows circle and a reclusive green heron darts past in this paradise for birds.

Bedrooms feature award-winning Casper Cal King mattresses and the living room has ample and comfortable seating for your retreat.

A half mile down the road, Monte Rio features beaches, (seasonal) kayak rentals and the famous Rio Theater and cafe. Duncan's Mills is three miles west with shops, restaurants and a post office. Jenner by the sea waits ten miles away at the Pacific Ocean.

We stayed here with another couple and found the place to be accommodating both in terms of size and amenities. The kitchen is well-stocked and boasts quality knives — a rarity in most rentals. We enjoyed just about every square inch of the property, inside and out. The highlights, without a doubt, were dining on the sun-soaked patio and sipping rosé in the hot tub, which overlooks the river. If I were the owner, I wouldn't change a thing! We'll be back!

Stayed for a long weekend. We came with 4 people and a dog. There was plenty of room for all. Access to the river was easy. The house is clean and comfortable and well appointed. It had everything we needed. We mostly ate in, but it is close enough to town if you wanted to eat out. All of the trees around are amazing....so relaxing. Also help to keep the house cool in the summer. We came up during a heat wave and were perfectly comfortable. I hope to return again soon!

Booked for a long weekend for our family of 4, and the house was perfect. They have created a lovely relaxing place with plenty of light, home comforts, a large deck and direct river access. It's conveniently located just outside of Monte Rio, with many of the other towns a short drive away for breakfasts, activities, shopping, etc. We'll be back for another weekend soon.

Stayed here for an wonderful girls weekend. The house is perfect for a long weekend with friends or family. Totally spotless, shabby chic vibes, cozy fireplace, river access, and hot-tubing under the stars, huge deck, at a great price compared with a lot of the other cabins. Booking it again for a winter weekend.

La Sonrisa was the perfect getaway for me and my girlfriends. We relaxed on the beautiful deck overlooking the river, soaked in the tub, sunned on the island, and lazed in the comfort of the cozy cottage. In the mornings we awoke to sun streaming in and birdsong. The cottage was close to wonderful restaurants, an amazing spa (Osmosis), and only ten minutes from the coast. I can't wait until my next visit!

Property Manager Response: Thank you for the lovely review. For future guests the house has changed owners and is now called Wine Down. We think it's just as lovely and hope guests do too. - January 2018

This was a surprise birthday getaway for my fiancé, and we were both so impressed with the place. Spacious and cozy, our 13 year-old pup really enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. A clean place with a lovely tranquil view that you can enjoy while in the hot tub. We definitely hope to be back again!
