Riverfront cottage in Sonoma wine country with a hot tub, outdoor shower and fire-pit area. 3 Kayaks and 4 bikes available for guests use. Great wine tasting, hiking, golf and ocean beaches nearby! Charming house with wood-burning stove in a quiet neighborhood close to small playground with basketball net. Movies, games, poker chips and felt table top, and books for all ages. Enjoy the views from inside the house, or from the brick-paver patio and upper and lower decks.
Relax among the redwoods in your riverfront cottage with brick paver patio, deck with hot tub, and private dock with three kayaks. In the winter months, curl up with a good book near the fire in the wood stove while you listen to the rain. There are tons of wineries to check out and lots of information and discount coupons at the house. We have four bicycles (3 adult size and 1 youth size) for exploring the neighborhood or riding into town for an ice cream cone. Or go for a hike in the redwoods at Armstrong State Park or at one of the Sonoma coast beaches. You are surrounded by lots of mature landscaping, flowers, majestic redwoods & fruit trees striking the perfect balance of sun and shade.
The first thing you'll notice when you enter the house are the beautiful dark wood flooring and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river and trees creating a cozy zen-like atmosphere.
The upstairs has two spacious bedrooms each with Queen beds and new fluffy comforters. Both bedrooms have lots of windows and one has a large deck overlooking the river--perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. There is a small bedroom downstairs with Twin bunk beds.
The main living areas are downstairs with an open floor plan. The living room has floor-to-ceiling windows on one end and a wood-burning stove on the other end. There is an adjoining dining room with room for eight people. The dining room opens out onto the brick paver patio with lovely views of the river.
The kitchen is well-stocked with all the essentials (cookware, coffee, tea, spices, olive oil, etc.), stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, waffle-maker and toaster oven. There is an adjoining breakfast nook with pub table seating for four and two extra folding chairs in the garage.
The bathroom is located downstairs and has a large vanity area and shower. It is well stocked with plenty of bath and spa/beach towels. There is also a private outdoor shower on the deck by the hot tub.
The patio is equipped with a propane BBQ grill, table and seating for eight, and porch swing for two. There are stairs off of the patio down to the dock where the kayaks (two single and one double) are tied up in the summer. In the other seasons, the kayaks are kept in the river or on the property depending on the water level of the river. There is an outdoor fire pit area with logs and marshmallow sticks available.
Located in the heart of the Sonoma wine country, on the Russian River, this home is the perfect location to visit the many local wineries, go for a swim, kayak, bike, visit the ocean, hike in the redwoods, or just relax and do nothing but enjoy the river and watch the local wildlife. Blue heron sightings are common especially down at Vacation Beach which is a half block walk from the house. There is also a small kids playground at Vacation Beach.

We are transplants from the midwest now living in Berkeley, California. We feel blessed to own such a perfect getaway in the Sonoma wine country on the Russian River less than 90 miles from San Francisco. We enjoy hearing that our guests enjoy our home and surrounding area as much as we do!
