The central areas of the house are cooled by ceiling fans, and an air-conditioner is available, when rarely necessary, in the main bed room. The living room/dining area features floor-to-ceiling glass windows offering views of the woods, and just outside the front entry door a redwood hot tub stands in the center of a towering circle of redwoods. Two decks are adjacent: the extensive front deck provides ample space for sunbathing, grilling and dining, while the rear deck (off the kitchen/dining area) is perfect for watching the antics of the osprey family (the nest is quite nearby and viewable from the deck), relaxing and reading, dining, or catching the afternoon sun. Hike, bike, swim, read, float or canoe the river, read, sunbathe, soak in the hot tub at your secluded hideaway..or...use it as your base from which to explore the many wonders of the Sonoma County wine country: wine-tasting, road-biking, hot air ballooning, Armstrong Redwoods grove, antiquing, horseback riding, and fine dining.

Peaceful, relaxing, beautifully furnished/equipped, spotlessly clean. Secluded at the end of a private, gated road this house is surrounded by redwoods, laurel, and madrome and yet is light and airy. There is plenty of deck space for relaxing, barbequing and dining, a completely equipped kitchen, comfortable beds in the bedrooms, a good entertainment center complete with NetFlix television, and best of all a steaming hot tub in a circle of redwood trees in front of the house! There are hiking trails that begin right at the parking area, and river activities and excellent wine tasting within a mile or two although, once there, this place is very hard to leave!

A couple of friends and I stayed at the Osprey's Rest for a long weekend and it was great. The house is secluded and at the top of a long winding road, but once you get up there it is very comfortable. Summerhome Park is a neat little community that looks like it would be an ideal place to spend a summer in your pre-teenage years. We spoke to a few of the neighbors and they were very friendly. With two bedrooms, I recommend staying here if you have two couples or a family with two kids that don't mind sharing a bed. Easy access to wine country and the coast. Drive an SUV, because the driveway is a little challenging to navigate. The house is charming, comfortable, and clean, with a rustic feel of a house that is probably 30 years old. Ping-pong, BBQ, hot tub, and two outdoor decks. A great find!

About the neighborhood
Hidden deep in the redwoods, madrone, and laurel of the hills surrounding the Russian River, Ospreys' Rest has no nearby neighbors. At the back of the private community of Summerhome Park, a road climbs into the woods and winds its way to this unique hideaway. Once there, you're immersed in the fresh air of the winds, and, should you choose, will seldom see another person, The river is warm, slow and quiet, and public beaches and canoe rental is available nearby. Please note: Summerhome Park is a private community, and use of the community facilities and/or participation in its social activities is not included in rental of homes within the Park.
Getting around
Our home is directly across the Russian River from Korbel Winery, which is the western terminus of the Russian River Wine Road co-op of dozens of fine wineries. Several award-winning restaurants are in the area, and the scenic Sonoma Coast of the Pacific Ocean is about a half-hour drive. Approximately the same distance to the north is the delightful town of Healdsburg, with its famous town square, dozens of excellent restaurants and shops, and tasting rooms of many of the county's famous wineries. Nearby in Guerneville is Armstrong Redwoods State Park, an inspiring representative of California's Giant Redwood groves.
