The Space

Light and bight our beautiful vacation home is located on the sunny side of Fitch Mountain. (Sonoma CountyTransient Occupancy Tax Certification # 433, Permit #ZPE11-0584) The Buena Vista Riverhouse is comfortable, relaxed and filled with original charm. The 500 square foot living room is perfect for gatherings of family and friends and has a stone fireplace and bay windows with window seats looking out at the Russian River. The dining room's walls of windows let light onto the custom built table that seats twelve. The friendly, open kitchen comes fully stocked and has checkerboard floors, a vintage stove and room to visit. This 3500 square foot, two story home has 2 queen bedrooms downstairs, and 2 bedrooms upstairs, one with a king and one with 2 twins and toddler bed. A large private deck offers incredible views of the river and canyon and a perfect place for sunbathing or stargazing. (Personally when we stay here in the summer, we sleep out on the deck!) Our house comes with One and a half baths, both located on the first floor and a laundry room with washer and dryer. There is a barbecue for your use off the kitchen.
Unfortunately, parking near the river is somewhat tight, we do have off street parking for 2 cars max, but as we do not want to disturb our neighbors there is no parking available on the street. There is a small front yard with a picket fence for your use. Camp Rose Beach is a five minute walk down the hill, and always has a great swimming hole and opportunities for osprey sightings.
Ours is a wonderful family house in a quiet neighborhood perfect for exploring Healdsburg and all that the Sonoma County Wine Country has to offer. It is ideal for relaxed gatherings of family and friends but not at all for wild parties.

Guest Access

The Buena Vista Riverhouse rental includes the entire 3500 square foot, 2 story home with 4 bedrooms and a garret office. There are parking spots for 2 cars, and the outdoor space includes the front yard and the deck off the back.
There is a basement apartment with a separate entrance and yard on this property that is rented out full-time. Please note that the "reserved" parking space and lower back yard are for the private use of this tenant.

Interaction with Guests

My husband or I can meet you at the house when you check in, or we can give you key instructions, depending on when you are arriving. We live 20 minutes away and can be available by phone to answer any questions or be there shortly if you need our assistance in any way. Otherwise, we just want you to feel at home enjoy the place as much as we do.

The Neighborhood

Ours is a simple and quiet neighborhood made up of older river cottages that are now predominately owner occupied. As is common in river or hillside areas, the streets leading up to our house are somewhat narrow, but as we stated above we are only a 5 minute drive to Healdsburg's beautiful downtown square.

Hello, We are Tom and Liz Cozine. We fell in love with the Russian River while bringing our 4 children here throughout their childhood summers. They learned to swim here, to kayak, to skip rocks, to catch tadpoles and watch for turtles, then head into town for some fabulous burritos or music on the square.
