Surrounded by tall redwood trees, with a sprawling grass lawn leading to a seasonal beach and river island, Riverwood Cottage has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing and refreshing riverside vacation.

As a guest of Riverwood, you can: * Walk or wade (depending on river level) to a seasonal island at the center of the river * Enjoy indoor-outdoor lounging with a 650 square foot deck overlooking the river * Relax in the hot tub nestled in a stand of redwood trees * Whip ...Surrounded by tall redwood trees, with a sprawling grass lawn leading to a seasonal beach and river island, Riverwood Cottage has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing and refreshing riverside vacation.

The living room is equipped with a comfy couch, a gas fireplace and a wall-mounted TV. Sliding glass doors lead to an expansive, wrap-around deck with a dining table for six. The deck has numerous other seating areas and nooks for you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Russian River flora and fauna. The kitchen is well-stocked with all the pots, pans and accessories you need to create a home-cooked meal, including service for eight. There is a friendly grocery store approximately a quarter-mile away and you can find a Safeway and health-food store in Guerneville, about 10 minutes away. Don’t feel like cooking inside? Then BBQ on the Weber and dine on the lawn or the deck. There’s a prep sink and bar area on the lower level, accessible from the lawn, for your convenience. A second bathroom is on this lower level too and is accessible from the lawn only. Enjoy a cool drink while you watch the children play. The lower level shower/bathroom is ideal for rinsing off after a hot day or washing the river off the dogs! Once you’ve snacked and soaked up the sun, it’s time to wind down. Head onto the deck and soak in the hot tub while the stars come out overhead and the sound of the river rushing by lulls you in the warm water. The hot tub is tucked into the corner of the deck, surrounded by redwood trees with a view of the river. Relax the muscles you’ve used to swim, paddle, and bike through the day. Gather the family around the fire pit, tell stories, roast marshmallows, and let Riverwood Cottage help you enjoy your time together. When it's finally time for bed, you’ll sleep well on the lush pillow-top mattresses. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed stocked with soft, down comforters. The upper bathroom has a claw-foot bathtub complimented by plush towels and rugs for your comfort. Please note that the tub has high sides which may prove difficult for those with mobility challenges. Maybe someone in your group prefers to have their recreation on terra firma. Tennis anyone? The Monte Rio Tennis and Basketball Courts are a ten minute walk away. In the same center you'll also find a skatepark for the kids. Or, drive five minutes to the Northwood Golf Club where you can golf on a gorgeous 9-hole course designed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie, of Augusta National and Cypress Point fame. Please, no parties.

Sangeeta's home, is truly a wonder, relaxing home. They are amazing hosts, and the home affords EVERYTHING you could want. Not only is it a prime location on the river, with incredible access, but it is so close to so many beautiful spots. From the fire pit, to the grill and hot tub, Riverwood Cottage has everything you could ask for on vacation.

The getaway was amazing!! The communication with the owner was perfect, the house was perfectly supplied! Cannot say enough about the location, and the spots for the relaxing view!! We totally enjoyed the time spent! Will go back for sure! next time I will bring water shoes to enjoy the river more! The house was cozy and warm, but the outdoor spots were the tops!! I am also a golfer, so being near the Northwood course, made this location perfect! Redwoods, views, hot tub oh so relaxing! Thank you!
