The space
As a guest of Riverwood, you can:

* Walk or wade (depending on river level) to an 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 up a delicious meal in the fully-equipped kitchen
* Picnic on the lawn at a picnic table on the grounds
* Cross the footbridge over the seasonal creek as you meander down to the river
* Bask in the sunshine on the loungers or Adirondack chairs
* Bring your kayaks or canoes (or rent them nearby) to explore the river
* Roast S’mores and stargaze around the firepit at night
* Cast your line during fishing season
* Drive, bike, or kayak to the coast at Jenner-by-the-Sea
* Watch on as the river rolls by and swells in the winter

Arriving at Riverwood Cottage, you will find a cozy (700 sq. feet), two-bedroom home with large grounds running right to the river. The living room is equipped with a comfy couch, a gas fireplace and a wall-mounted TV with cable. Sliding glass doors lead to an expansive, wrap-around deck with a dining table for six. The deck has 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? BBQ on the Weber and dine on the lawn or the deck. There’s a prep sink and a bar area on the lower level for your convenience. Please note that one of the two bathrooms is on this lower level too and is accessible from the lawn only. Enjoy a cool drink while you watch the children play or join in on a game of croquet and other lawn games. 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 basked in 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 pillow-top mattresses. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed stocked with down comforters. The upper bathroom has a claw-foot bathtub complimented by plush towels and rugs for your comfort.

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.

We have been coming to the Russian River for over a decade. One of the things we enjoy the most is the diverse beauty of the area, from the water to the redwoods. When we had the opportunity to purchase Riverwood Cottage, we took it! We look forward to sharing this very special property with our family, friends and guests. I was born in Southern California but have made the Bay Area my home for almost 15 years. My husband and I have been married for 10 years and have an Australian Shepherd named Petie.
