Secluded, hilltop, spa

Located in: Monte Rio
Stairway to Haven is that rare property that's walking distance to the Russian River but on a half-acre forest hilltop that offers almost complete seclusion from other houses -- if you go to the edge of the property you can just barely see another house. That's why you feel like you're in your own tree-filled world at Stairway to Haven. This 4+ bedroom/2 bath river cottage is vintage 1930 architecture, with vaulted living room ceilings and some remaining original knotty pine along with a charming country kitchen, but there are plenty of modern amenities like exquisitely comfy beds and linens, wifi (of course), 48" Roku flatscreen, and a 7-person hot tub. Decking surrounds the house, and there are multiple areas to enjoy quiet time both inside and out, including a serene home office. The large living room and ample dining table also offer great spaces for group activities.

The upstairs master is large, with a queen bed, separate sitting area, and sliding doors to the deck that is also accessible from, and adjacent to, the living room. The upstairs guest room is cozy, also with a queen bed, and the sun porch has a daybed with trundle (2 standard twins) and sliding doors to the side deck near the hot tub. The upstairs bathroom is accessed via a hallway and accessible to all bedrooms and common areas. The downstairs suite (accessed via external staircase) has a large master bedroom with heavenly king-sized bed, there is a full bath with tub/shower off the hallway, and a small office that also contains laundry facilities. There is an excellent queen size aerobed that can sleep an additional 2 people and can be used in the office, the living room, or either of the large master bedrooms.

Walk down the 45 stairs (yes, this type of seclusion does come at a small cost, but think of the exercise!) and down the quiet country road less than half a mile to the lovely neighborhood beach in the tiny village of Villa Grande. Stairway to Haven is also only 1 mile to the downtown Monte Rio public beach, a 10-minute drive west to the Pacific Ocean, or 20 minutes east to world class wine tasting on Westside Road, which connects with Healdsburg. Or drive 10 minutes to Guerneville with its cute boutiques, amazing restaurants, and hiking among old growth redwoods at Armstrong Woods State Park.

As noted, Stairway to Haven is up approximately 45 steps, so please keep that in mind if you have limited mobility or difficulty with stairs. There is parking for 3 cars at the bottom of the stairs.
