Gorgeous lush private riverfront modern cabin with its own beach

Located in: forestville
We just sustained some flood damage after the Russian River rose to an almost record height on Feb 27th. I hope that we can complete repairs by April 1st. Please check back for updates.

Secluded private riverfront cabin with private beach; sunny, lush and close to Healdsburg, Guerneville, the Sonoma Coast beaches and some of the best wineries in the world.

This gorgeous property is located right on the Russian River (1 hour drive from the Golden Gate Bridge) and is central and very close to legendary wineries, restaurants, redwoods and endless gorgeous scenery. The property has a REAL BEACH (sand and pebbles) which is quite rare for the Russian River. Also very rare: The property is large (1.5 acres), private and very sunny; The house has real character, warmth, simplicity and style. It is small and cozy (but has a gourmet kitchen and a huge tile shower). The neighborhood and locals are funky/colorful/eccentric, which is not rare at all around here. Nearly everybody that stays here says that it is "magical."

The Fine Print:
The house is beautiful, light, airy, modern, rustic, simple, minimal and serene. The decks are perfect for sunning, outdoor dining and drinking. The beach is perfect for swimming, playing, boating (kayaks and canoe provided) and just soaking in the sun, river and scenery. The yard is lush and private and dotted with fruit trees, grapevines, hot tub, hammocks and a fire pit. This is a perfect romantic getaway or a place to indulge yourself while also thrilling your kids and dog (bring your own-neither provided). Inside the house, you'll find redwood ceilings, fir floors, skylights and dozens of wood windows (all with gorgeous views- some of the river). The house is appointed with striking mid century furniture, a luxurious queen bed and a fully equipped serious kitchen w/gas cooktop. The house is also equipped with a wood burning stove, audiophile stereo (connect wirelessly with your devices), 50Mbs WiFi, TV/DVD and gas heat. The house has almost every single detail covered- you will want for almost nothing. This is a fully remodeled mid-century cottage, designed by me, for me- but now for you to enjoy as well.

Please note that summer bookings (May 1st-September 30th) are 1 week long minimum. However, exceptions will be made on a case to case basis- Feel free to ask...

The house opens to 2 decks (furnished with gas grill, dining tables and lounge chairs) overlooking the yard, the river and beyond. Moving outside, the house is framed by fruit trees (plum, apple, fig, pear, orange, etc), olive trees, grape vines and bay laurels. Adjacent to the house is a fire pit and a tomato/herb garden. Moving towards the river, the orderly yard gives way to fertile riparian habitat- gently rolling grassy meadow with native willow/elder/maple/cottonwood trees cradling a shaded hammock. Descend a little further and the sandy riverbank draped with willows and wild grapevines leads to a pebble beach carved by the waters of the glorious Russian River.

The beach frontage is 135 feet long and has gorgeous views up and down the redwood-lined river as well as a striking view of the Hacienda Bridge. The river is shallow and calm in the summer (perfect for boating or tubing- canoe, kayaks and innertubes provided), but the mighty Russian grows immensely (depth and width) and dramatically thunders to life in the winter. It is amazing to see, hear and feel. Last winter the river was as high as 42 feet above the summer level.

The Russian River is home to ducks, great blue herons, osprey, hawks, foxes, river otters, deer, mountain lions and and wild turkeys as well as salmon, steelhead, bass, sturgeon, hippies and rednecks. The property is very sunny (no redwoods), yet has shade trees (with hammocks) for comfort in the summer. The air is scented with bay leaves, lemon balm, fennel, mugwort, redwood and orange blossoms.

Summer is hot and lush, but the water in the river is the perfect temperature for cooling. On winter mornings the sun rises through river fog wisping through the hills and between the redwoods, which typically burns off by 10am leaving sun and clear skies. The nights are cool all year round, which is why the local wine is so good (and so necessary!). The night skies are dark and dotted with stars- unless there is a full moon, which bathes the river in light and makes you wonder why you would ever want to be anywhere else (note -added lunar taxes & surcharges are applicable).
