Open the gate to birdsong and beams of morning sun in a hidden river world. You'll find a 1924 cottage with old world charm, wood floors, a custom cedar counter and walls of dual pane wood windows. 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 or sharing inspiration with a glass of wine. Dine inside or out as weather permits. A large deck just outside the kitchen holds tables, chairs and a propane barbecue.
Down one level is a round hot tub near an outdoor shower and laundry room. Stairs lead to a sunny sitting area by a shallow and gentle stretch of river and a long, wild, sandy (seasonal) island. Currently, there's no direct access to the river.
Ferns, thimbleberries, lemon balm, mugwort (sage) and an old stone bench for two overlook the river bank. 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 Queen mattresses and the living room has ample and comfortable seating for your retreat.
The owner, an author, visits La Sonrisa ("smile" in Spanish) as a writing sanctuary. The cottage invites healing, rest, and creativity of all kinds. Wander to the river. Empty yourself. Fill yourself. Relax. Enjoy.
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.

STAIRS: There are two steps from the parking area to the house. There are exterior stairs to the hot tub, outdoor shower, laundry room and river overlook.
