About This Listing
River Renaissance “This period in time marked the rebirth of humanism, and the revival of cultural achievements in all forms, including music, art, philosophy and architecture. The French word "Renaissance" in itself is defined as a "rebirth" or a "reconstruction". It is the age of William Shakepeare, Da Vinci, Gallileo, Sir. Isssac Newton and Joan of Arc.
That is exactly why this sweet Romantic Get-away is called “River Renaissance”. This cottage is unique in design, unique in spirit, and utterly romantic. Cozy and comfortable in atmosphere, for those days when lounging by the log fireplace is all that is on the menu.
Or expand this sweet cottage by inviting the outdoors in …sliding doors off of the living room that leading to the front sitting porch and large patio…French doors leading to the cozy deck off of the dining area. A little something for everyone.
As you enter through the gates you will be welcomed onto the large dining patio by an 1,000 old Redwood tree trunk. This trunk is surrounded by other redwoods creating a magical “Fairy Ring”.
River Renaissance is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath custom cottage. Every detail in this cottage was inspired for your comfort....step back into the Renaissance Period with dark, wood flooring, eclectic artwork throughout and stone and wood kitchen and bathrooms.
If you are looking for unique, if you are looking for quite and tranquil...look no further...You have Arrived!
About the immediate area. You are a short walk away from the near-by Northwood Golf Course and coffee shop. A 5 minute drive in either direction will land you at a Russian River beach.
All of the small towns in this Wine Valley area offer fine dining and unique shopping.
If the great outdoors is calling to you we have the answer! Armstrong Woods (Muir Woods without the crowds) offers strolling through Giant Redwoods and/or challenging hiking opportunities. The Russian River meanders through the Valley for canoeing and kayaking experiences and the Pacific Ocean is within a 17 minute drive from the cottage!

I booked River Renaissance after another plan fell through and it was a wonderful experience! Stacy replied quickly and sent the necessary paperwork as soon as the dates were cleared.
The property is magnificent, right off the River Road and quiet. My husband, four-month-old and mother-in-law all fit comfortably and we certainly took advantage of the ample outdoor space. The shower is gorgeous and was a real treat from our crappy city apartment. We slept well in the comfy beds and appreciated the large fridge and coffee maker. The wi-fi was nice since cell reception is pretty spotty.
We had a wonderful time and would absolutely love to stay again in the future!
