The Rhondavous should be called The Rhonda-View! Guests enjoy panoramic views of the Russian River from every room of the house (minus the bathrooms). This sunny, window-studded 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom cabin is a great place to relax and immerse yourself in our laid-back river lifestyle. Built back in the Russian River’s initial heyday, The Rhondavous was originally the general store for Summerhome Park residents and river travelers. Canoes could pull up to a dock, send up their order and receive their purchases on a zip line, all without leaving their boat. Perched high above the river, The Rhondavous is tucked away from the road by a large private fence.

Guests enjoy panoramic views of the Russian River from every room of the house (minus the bathrooms). This sunny, window-studded 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom cabin is a great place to relax and immerse yourself in our laid-back river lifestyle. Built back in the Russian River’s initial heyday, The Rhondavous was originally the general store for Summerhome Park residents and river travelers. Canoes could pull up to a dock, send up their order and receive their purchases on a zip line, all without leaving their boat. Perched high above the river, The Rhondavous is tucked away from the road by a large private fence. There isn’t much to see from the road, but once you open the gate and step inside, the stunning view and charming cabin will simultaneously take your breath away and melt away the stress of the world. The large deck at The Rhondavous has an outdoor dining table and propane barbecue. Entrances to all sections of the cabin are accessed from the deck. At the top level (road level), there are two exterior doors opposite each other. The door to the left leads to the main living space, which has an open living area and kitchen. The door to the right opens to a granny unit with a Queen bed and a full bathroom with a shower. Exterior stairs from the main deck take you down to 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (also with showers) and a bonus room with recreation items and a Double futon. From the lower level, gated stairs continue down to the river, which has private deep river access. The Rhondavous is a member of the Highcroft community and has access to Highcroft Beach (not shown) - a quieter spot which allows dogs before 11:00 am and after 4:00 pm - just a short walk from The Rhondavous. The beach shown in the photographs is the Summerhome Park Beach which is for members and residents of Summerhome Park only. The Summerhome Park Lodge is open to both members and guests when open (except when rented for private parties). Know Before You Book: Maximum Occupancy and Quiet Hours: The maximum occupancy at The Rhondavous is 8. Quiet hours are from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Outdoor amplified sound is prohibited at any time. Parking: There is space on the street in front of the house for up to 2 small-to-mid-size cars. RVs, trailers and campers are prohibited, per the Sonoma County Vacation Rental Ordinance. Bed Sizes: Master bedroom: Queen bed; Second bedroom: Queen bed; Third bedroom: 2 Twin beds; Bonus room: Double futon. Heat Source: Woodstove (no firewood provided); portable electric heaters Driving to Summerhome Park: Summerhome Park Road is a narrow, one-lane country road - you may need to pull over for oncoming traffic. It is, at times, steep with sharp turns, and the road is paved but not necessarily smooth. Additionally, the surrounding side streets are narrow and steep with little to no street parking or shoulder Common Amenities not Included: No dishwasher. Dogs: Dogs are most certainly welcome at The Rhondavous. However, guests should be aware that Highcroft Beach only allows dogs in the morning and evenings (specific hours posted at the beach) and guests and dogs are not allowed at the Summerhome Park beach. Docks & Boats: Docks and beaches are seasonal only and available from mid-June to mid-September providing the summer dams are in. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and rowboats that are provided in some of our homes are also available from mid-June to mid-September only. The river is usually too swift for boating in the winter and many docks and beaches are under water until late spring. Summer Rotation Day: Saturday During the Peak Season, which runs end of June through August, The Rhondavous has a 7 night minimum and rents on a Saturday to Saturday pattern. If you make an online reservaton outside of this rotation day requirement, we may contact you about altering your dates.

We stayed at the Rhondavous for a spur of the moment weekend at the River. I had been to Summer Home Park before and saw this house and its deck from the beach, and always wanted to stay here. We had a great time. The...More

Thank you so much for the review! And kind words - we'd love to have you back anytime! The Rhondavous is definitely a river house with a cabin vibe. And like you said, once you settle in, it's a great spot and the deck is...More
