About This Listing
Riverfront Chalet has amenities for the whole family to enjoy! Spend your days in this beautiful sunny river front home with picturesque views. A loft viewing the main living room and dining area makes for lots of lively conversation. A remodeled kitchen and a gas-powered brick fireplace (the fireplace reaches to the vaulted ceiling) provide ambiance and function for a fun-filled getaway. The master bedroom is also located upstairs, and is luxurious with a master bath, fireplace and private balcony with views of the river.
Relax on the spacious decks overlooking the unfenced backyard, graceful flowing river, and lush redwood grove on the undeveloped Bohemian Grove property across the river. After a day in Russian River paradise, relax in a hot tub thoughtfully placed under towering redwood trees. If relaxing in the hot tub in the evening, you'll be delighted by the romantic uplights and twinkling stars. When retiring to your country bedroom, enjoy cable TV. (All the bedrooms have one!)
Out of doors, Riverfront Chalet has plenty of finely maintained lawn for children to frolic or for the avid golfer in the family to practice that perfect swing for the world renowned Northwood Golf Course across the road. Spend your days at the beach, kayaking right from your backyard or take a short walk for a round of golf ending with a homemade Bloody Mary at the Northwood Club house. There are plenty of choices of activities or you can choose to just relax, unwind and enjoy the scenery. Your whole family will be in heaven in this beautifully appointed Russian River chalet.

DINING: The dining table seats 6 comfortably and up to 8, but is not large enough to accommodate 10 people. In order to use the dining table for 6-8 people, the table needs to be pulled out from the wall and folding chairs in the yellow bedroom closet need to be utilized. The dining table is located in the main living room, so even on rainy days when the decks cannot be utilized for dining, the whole group can still gather for a casual meal.
YARD: The lawn to the river does not have fencing except to the road. The lawn is bordered on each side by neighbors' lawns. This combination creates a beautiful uninterrupted riverfront landscape.

The house was great for our group. Beautiful back yard with access to the river, and a well-equipped kitchen. The porch is quite amazing as well, with its ample seating space and huge hot tub.
Make sure to be cognizant of the neighbors -- they got upset that we parked in front of their house and wandered into their side of the backyard (it's all open with no fences).
This was a great house for a friend's weekend away. There were 9 of us total and plenty of room for everyone. The deck and backyard are wonderful. Highly recommended.
My family's guests stayed here for my wedding in Monte Rio. The house is very conveniently located between Monte Rio and Guerneville. Everyone loved the house and its beautiful surroundings. Thank you!
Check-in was a breeze. House was amazing...pictures really don't do it justice. Plenty of space, an amazing front yard and a big deck with hot tub. Weather was perfect which helped as well :) Great stay at the Riverfront Chalet!
The house was perfect for our group - it had all the necessities and comforts of a nice vacation house. The location was private, the house and rooms very spacious, and above all relaxing with lots of redwood trees and the river in our backyard! The ladies at the office checked in to see if we needed anything or had question shortly after check in. Great experience, thank you again!
The home was very spacious with plenty of outdoor space to lounge and enjoy the outdoors. We also loved the river front access. River Homes was very friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely consider renting this home and/or other homes provided by River Homes again.
