Charming studio on the Russian River. Enchanting gardens lead directly to river. Exceptional location for canoeing, kayaking and frolicking in the water. (1 canoe and 2 kayaks available.) Guerneville, one and a half hours north of San Francisco, has an idyllic small town atmosphere where time has stood still. The area offers many delights: hiking in Redwoods, wine tasting, beautiful ocean beaches, laid back coffee shops as well as fine dining. Guerneville is considered the heart of the Russian River. Come and see for yourself. Get away from it all. Minimum stay two nights. In the winter from November to February one night.
Very comfortable full-size bed with memory foam in which you can indulge your dreams. Another bed in a cozy alcove sleeps one adult or two children.
The kitchen has a stove, refrigerator, dishes, pans, silverware, etc. Butcher block counter work area. Toaster and coffeemaker. Cute seating area.
The bathroom features an oversized tub/shower in a generous lay-out.
All of this with an amazing view into the gardens. You can breakfast in bed and gaze out into a magical world of flowers where hummingbirds breakfast too. The whole environment is one of serenity.
Up to two children welcome. Quiet environment, no parties, no loud music
Was a lovely visit. The place is pristine, and right next to the river. The bed was very firm and comfortable. Bring your CDs - excellent stereo next to the bed. Thanks Ursula!
Ursula was amazing! She was there to welcome us and show us around her beautiful studio that was very clean and homey. Her garden had lemons growing on the side and the Russian River was just a few steps past the gate. She had plenty of cooking utensils which we utilized for a romantic home-made dinner. Overall experience was great and very peaceful.
Ursula waited up late to greet us. We had to get through lots of traffic so we arrived around 7:00 pm instead of around 5:00 pm as we hoped and Ursula was there to greet us and welcome us in. I felt grateful! The place was clean and the beds were comfortable. I slept through the entire night- something I don't usually do in new environments. It was a clean and cozy place. We enjoyed our stay.
Not any of my guests guests - 83 reviews - ever mentioned any offensive smell in my place. Different folks notice different things. You slept better than in any other new place before; and apparently it was a fleeting smell. Therefore I could have appreciated if you had voiced your concern privately or told me.
We had a wonderful time at the Ursula's place along the Russian River. Everything was tidy and a big perk was being able to use the outdoor BBQ to grill some steaks and eat a nice dinner outside in her garden. Ursula was very kind and her place was cozy for a group of 3 of us. I'd recommend checking it out, especially in the summer where you can just walk into the river with a canoe or inner tubes with ease.
Beautiful home on the water in a peaceful, welcoming spot in the woods. Highly recommended! It was fantastic. Thank you.
Ursula was very nice to deal with and easy to communicate with. The place was cozy, quiet, and scenic - just like in the photos. You can walk right out to the river. I highly recommend.
We ran away from home and the Xmas madness. We just wanted the basics and location, location, location. We found them here.
It was everything a Russian River retreat should be--sweet, a little funky, warm and comfortable.
A week earlier, the river had risen to the lower garden wall and all the beautiful plants were dormant. That was just fine as the bare trees of winter are their own reward.
In the summer, I'm sure it's gorgeous as Ursula our hostess, is an avid gardener with around 50 years invested in the place. I think we'll go back then.
No TV, cell phones may or may not work and the wi-fi connection is iffy. For us, the perfect two night break.
For us...the perfect getaway.
I came from Germany many years ago and have made my home here in Guerneville for the last 14 years. I have been working as a professor in San Francisco for a long time. - I love my house and surroundings; the beauty of it all is breath taking. Much delights me: Swimming in the river, kayaking. gardening and cooking. - I would like to share this abundance here with my guests.
