About This Listing
Our Forestville “riverhouse” is an escape to the heart of the Russian River Valley, located near Hacienda Bridge, a General Store, and right next to Mom's Beach. The riverhouse is a “modern cabin"; super comfortable with updated amenities.
We like to call the riverhouse a “modern cabin”, full of comfort, charm, light, updated amenities and views of the woods just off the river. Almost the entire space (1000sf) has been re-modeled in the past year and its comfort can't be beat.
A two-night minimum is standard for the riverhouse, but we do have a 3 night minimum on holiday weekends. Thanks for your understanding.
The riverhouse is a 2 bedroom 1 3/4 bathroom house. Both bedrooms have new queen sized beds. The house sleeps 4 comfortably & privately. With a little creativity we can accommodate up to 6 adults which is the occupancy limit. Kids are welcome and we will do our best to accommodate any specific needs with notification! From the front porch, the house opens to the stylishly furnished Living Room, which sports a leather sectional, TV, wood-burning stove, easy chair, and banquettes. Off the living room and kitchen, there's a (private/protected) deck for outdoor dining and a gas barbecue. The master suite is large and has a private full bathroom with tub/shower. Down the short hallway, the second bedroom is smaller, and is adjacent to a private “¾” bathroom (we call it the smallest bathtub ever!). The dining area is situated in the kitchen next to picture windows, making for a lively spot for socializing while cooking & eating. The kitchen is fully stocked and well laid out, with plenty of room to move around. Other information:

The river house was the perfect spot for Memorial Day weekend. The property is modern, spacious and steps from the river.
The river house also provides great access to Old town Guerneville, Healdsburg, some great breweries, and the obvious option of multiple wineries.
Listing description was very accurate. Had a fantastic time staying at the river house!
We loved staying at Kaesa and Mike's house in the Russian River area. Very comfortable, wonderfully decorated and well equipped with private deck and BBQ grill. The location was perfectly central for going to Armstrong woods and Healdsburg / Dry Creek wine tasting. Would love to stay again in the near future!
We had a great time at the River House. The location was perfect for wine tasting throughout Sonoma County and for an easy trip to the coast. It was also 100 steps from the Russian River and some very large and beautiful Redwood trees. Mike and Kaesa were great hosts making sure that we had what we needed. We had some issues with getting the heat to work properly but with some help from Mike we were able to get it worked out. The house was cozy and comfortable. The neighborhood was hit or miss with some nice homes and some less well-kept homes as well. We didn’t have any issues though.
It was a great and peaceful location. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and the facilities were wonderful. Mike and Kaesa were excellent hosts who ensured everything was set-up for our comfort. Additionally, they had things ready for everything from ourselves to our small kids.
House was perfect for a long weekend with family. Easy access to wineries and Healdsburg. River beach just across the street made for simple kayak access. Everything is new and super clean. Would highly recommend.
