A perfect place to get away from it all. Loved having breakfast on the deck overlooking the river every morning. Monte Rio was an excellent base for our cycling adventures: a brief jaunt to the coast, the vineyards, and the redwoods. We loved the local movie theater and the shops and restaurants in nearby Guerneville and Occidental. No cell reception at the house but internet worked great and there was a landline available. (We actually counted this a pro, but good to know.) We also loved the indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit. It was convenient having the dishwasher, washer/dryer, and all the amenities. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Redwood Butterfly is a beautiful retreat that is clean, well-decorated and very conveniently located. The space is tranquil and stylish floating in the treetops. You can easily walk into town or hide away in quiet. We had a lovely weekend and Sally was a no-hassle host.
We really enjoyed the house. Everything was so clean, new, and well stocked. We enjoyed the river and the island just across the house and had a lovely and relaxing time. The river was very low and it was easy to access and walk across to the other side. For two couples and three toddlers, there was plenty of room.
Beautiful place right on the river, super tranquil and comfortable but also has a modern feel (new kitchen + bathroom etc). Easy to get to general store that has everything and is open til 11. Really loved this place, highly recommended!
If you need a small place conveniently located for a quiet weekend in the Russian River area, this is the one for you. The pictures are completely accurate. Cozy living room with nice midcentury furniture (and a few modern pieces). It worked perfectly for 4. The big island is perfect for unpacking your picnic and wine. The bed was comfortable and the street noise minimal. Sally responded promptly about my reservation and with my questions during my stay. I would definitely rent the Redwood Butterfly again.
Beautiful house on amazing quite location in the nice town of Monte Rio. 10 min away from supermarket. the house is amazing with all new kitchen and appliances. perfect for a family! the host is very friendly and helpful!
About the Host, Sally
I live a lucky life!
It includes, but is not limited to, a fantastic husband, funny siblings, a perfect Dad, crazy cousins, awesome in-laws, amazing kids, playful step-kids, beautiful grand-kids, goofy nephews, regal cats & 1 dog. Luckily the dog is part Australian shepherd, so she keeps us all in line.
I travel whenever I can and have been to all 50 states, and many foreign countries. I love any hobby that gets me wet, scuba diving being my favorite, but beach combing will do in a pinch.
My favorite saying is:
Awake each day with a winged heart, and give thanks for another day of loving.
