This beach house boasts a private setting, serene beach, river views along with fully equipped kitchen and living areas - inside and outside. It delivers and more! The touch of the owner is found throughout the property and we enjoyed our time there and would book again. This booking is perfect for a couple or two friends.
Many nearby places to explore and easy to get into the river just down a few steps from the house.
We first visited Jay's wonderful place in the summer of 2015 and liked it so much we booked it for twice as long the following year. This place has everything you could possibly want in a river home: private beach, canoe, kayaks, hot tub, gas bbq, comfy bed, two decks, wifi, fruit trees, tomatoes, the property is large and there is safe parking and incredible privacy. And it's dog-friendly! There's enough to do on site to keep you busy, but if you want to explore, there are wineries, restaurants and cafes, a terrific bakery and more. Jay has extensive information on local attractions if you decide to stay there, and all the communications we have had with him have been informative and timely.
We loved spending the week at this amazing riverfront home. It has all the amenities, including a full kitchen with enough utensils and cookware to create gourmet meals. The scenery and the lake are beyond gorgeous. We were able to canoe and kayak on the lake and hike and bike the beautiful wooded area that surrounds the property. It was an easy drive to the wine country, the ocean, the redwood forest, wonderful restaurants and shopping. We can hardly wait to go back!
I loved pulling my car into the private, gate sealed drive of this unique, on the river, cabin. The yard welcomes you with fruit trees, a hammock next to a fire pit with a top quality clean whirlpool. A short walk down the wooden steps takes you to your own private section of the river.
The house is a combination of rustic original redwood floors and a wood burning stove that blends into a modern bathroom (love the large shower) and kitchen. The cabin is small, but perfect for 2 or 3 people. A short and pleasant drive 10 minutes away has you at the gorgeous Armstrong Redwood Reserve and another 20 minutes past that is the Pacific Ocean. I will for sure return!
Jay's place is a perfect Russian River escape. It has it's own beach and another beach within easy walking distance. We were there during the rainy season, but the view of the river from his huge sliding glass doors while the fire was burning was so beautiful and dramatic. This is the perfect place for a couple. The house is totally romantic, with redwood ceilings and sophisticated details, good stereo equipment and gorgeous art. The kitchen is outfitted with excellent cooking supplies (one of the few rentals I have stayed in with stocked spices and good knives!) and the bed is awesome. The house is very private, with a sliding gate that shuts out the rest of the world. We could easily get to Healdsburg for great restaurants, Westside Road wineries, Guerneville restaurants and bars, and Armstrong Woods for hiking. It's about a 25 minute drive to Jenner and Bodega Bay. I can't wait to come back in the summertime but it was totally cozy and exactly what we were looking for as a romantic getaway.
I'm a Oakland native. Have been going to the river all my life. Jay's place is the best by far Not only was everything available, but if we had forgotten anything, Jay had it at his cabin. Our dog was happy too. Can't wait to go back. Thank you Jay
My husband and I always try to rent a place on the river during the summer months. Jay's place is perfect for a get away. He has beach front access, with kayaks and a beautiful hot tub. We really enjoyed hanging out on the deck and watching the river flow by. I loved the gourmet kitchen!
