The Russian River Hideaway is one of the most adorable AND least expensive vacation rentals in the Russian River. Located in Sonoma county, it's the perfect place to either cozy up indoors or go out and explore nature, wineries or hip destinations like Guerneville.
The Hideaway is a gorgeous property that comfortably sleeps four. Nestled in the redwoods, the Hideaway consists of the main house, a charming cabin, breathtaking decks, an outdoor grill, a hot tub and more. We offer a fully equipped kitchen, TV/DVD, High speed internet, an iPod player, luxury linens, a wood-burning fireplace, and a canoe for our guests. The house is located off River Road in Summerhome Park, a unique community with a private beach on the river (a 5 minute walk from the Hideaway), hiking trails out the back door, a basketball court, and more than 100 years of local history and tradition. Bring the family for a weekend of fun or surprise your loved one with a romantic escape!
NOTE: During the summer months June-August we require a week minimum (and it's worth it. promise!)
Sharon was incredibly responsive, flexible, and accommodating leading up to and during our stay- and she kindly granted us a late check-out on our last day.
On the other hand, we felt that many of her photos that enticed us to book the house were misleading and failed to present a full picture of the true rustic nature of the place, as well as the significant construction happening on all sides daily.
This being said, my friends and I had a great weekend and definitely made the best of our Russian River experience! Overall, I'd recommend this place, although not at nearly the price at which it has been marketed..
Sharon was very quick to respond to our request to rent her place and our interactions were very easy and friendly.
A cozy rustic cabin deep in the woods along Russian River. A pleasant place place for a couple's quiet getaway.
The Russian River Hideaway is awesome! Five friends and I were looking for a relaxing escape from the city, and this was the perfect spot. The house feels very private and surrounded by redwoods. There were plenty of games, books, music, and movies to choose from as well as a fully stocked kitchen. It's a short, beautiful walk to the river, and a great spot to visit any time of the year. We highly recommend soaking in the hot tub in the rain (it's sheltered under a roof) or going for a hike!
Sharon and Nora were both very responsive and fantastic hosts. I'll definitely be back, and highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway or a cozy place to return to after a day on the river.
Great place to spend a weekend away from the city. If I'm back in the area, I will definitely look to book again.
This was our second time staying at The Hideaway, and the second was even better than the first. I love hanging out at the beach just moments away, eating on the gorgeous patio, and enjoying total rest and rejuvenation amongst the redwoods. I already can't wait to go back!
We had a great experience of with Sharon and the Hideaway. Sharon anticipated all the possible needs for preparing for our trip and traveling to the house. Getting there the first time can be tricky, so following Sharon's directions and arriving before dark were key. In the house, there was a comprehensive guide book with everything we could possibly want to know about enjoying the property and nearby activities. Mostly we opted to stay in and catch up with one another.
The neighboring homes didn't seem to have anyone there, so it was very private during our stay. However, on a busy weekend, it might be different.
The house is perfect for two couples. My husband and I stayed in the cozy cabin, while our friends stayed in the spacious room in the main house. Both spaces are very comfortable. Our favorite features of the house were the grill, hot tub, outdoor seating, well-stocked kitchen and the tall trees that surrounded us.
We would definitely love to be come back again for a longer stay.

I value the simple things in life. Connecting with people, eye contact with strangers, laughter with friends & family... welcoming what life has in store for me. I live in the city and often get away to the Russian River. I share both homes with amazing people like yourselves! I hope you enjoy both the Russian River and the city as much as I do!
