Grand Dame on the River is a large light-filled home situated on the river in Monte Rio. With soaring living room ceilings and art from around the world, it's a truly unique and wonderful experience. The expansive yard begs for lawn games, and is just steps to a quiet neighborhood beach.
The large living room with vaulted ceilings is decorated with art from round the world. And the dining area seats 10 and has views out both the front and back of the house through enormous picture windows.
There are 5 bedrooms plus a den on 3 levels, plus 3 full bathrooms, so there is space for everyone as well as good separation of space. The backyard consists of a giant lawn overlooking the Russian River and is adjacent to a neighborhood beach so you have great access to the water for the watercraft included in this rental (2 kayaks).
To top it off is a 6 person spa on the fully fenced and private front garden patio, which also includes a gas grill. Despite being a grand house, Grand Dame is also a great home with lots of kids' toys, books, and other items to make you feel comfortable. And a 15 minute drive in either direction takes you to the ocean or world class wine tasting - what could be better?

We stayed at Grand Dame for Thanksgiving 2013. A family gathering with 4 young children, 2 teenagers and 5 adults. The house had enough room for all of us, plus more. The backyard walk to the river was excellent and the use of the kayaks was great. The pool table, darts and toys kept everyone busy. The skate park around the corner was also a great find. The house was neat and tidy, but the front yard, patios and care of the outside equipment was minimally maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with dinner ware and utensils. The house was self sufficient but no guest book was found if you had some basic house questions. All in all, I would go back and recommend it for a others who need space for a big gathering.
