The Rose Cottage has recently been remodeled, and is now a quiet retreat. The bedroom has a king bed and the living room a new queen bed sofa. You will find a completely equipped galley kitchen. A separate lavatory with washer - dryer, bathroom with a large shower. There is excellent wireless internet service. Guerneville is unique village on the Russian River with great restaurants and shops, surrounded by vineyards and great Wineries. You will be delighted by the wonderful river access or a short drive will take you to the ocean. Terrific hiking in Armstrong Woods and world class biking, followed by a lazy float down the river which runs through the Redwood forest. A great place for a long or short get away. The neighborhood is quiet but an easy stroll just a few blocks to the center of town.
If you come to Guerneville for one of the Vineman Triathlons, the special events, the music festivals, or just to relax you will never need to get in your car, you can walk down to the center of Guerneville.
Our house is close but not too close. We enjoy our guests who come from all over the world, but know how to give them privacy. We feel privileged to live in this beautiful spot. No pets please, they disturb our chickens! Come visit!
The cottage is separate from the main house by a garden and separate driveway. There is parking for one car, or two small cars off street next to the cottage. The parking is marked by a Large Metal Bird Sculpture. The cottage has a large covered porch and a small stone patio with a Weber charcoal kettle for your use.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy our guests and are always available but hope to give guests all the privacy they would like.
Our hill is a quiet residential area with easy access to walk down to town. We have very friendly neighbors who like to interact with our guests as much as we do. The top of our hill has an interesting old cemetery which makes a nice after dinner walk.
It is an easy walk down one block to the main area of Guerneville. You can walk anywhere in town from Rose Cottage. Many guests park and never move their car again. Rose Cottage is a perfect spot for events and festivals, such as Vineman, The Russian River Jazz and Blues Festival, and Lazy Bear week.
No smokers please. No pets they disturb the chickens!
Everything was wonderful! Clean, lovely, cozy and couldn't have asked for a better location. Highly recommend!
This was a wonderful cosy cottage, presented as described and well suited to 2 couples. Great value and close to both town and the Armstrong Redwoods reserve. Kathleen was very friendly and provided some great local knowledge for enjoying our stay.
Loved staying in Kathleen's beautiful cottage. Our group was made up of two couples and we were very comfortable at this close-to-town spot. It has been newly renovated and the cottage is fully stocked with kitchen utensils, towels, linens, etc. We would stay here again.
Kathleen was an amazing host. My partner and I were there for 2 nights and had a great time exploring, hanging out on the river at Johnson's Beach and it was so great having so much within walking distance. The place was exactly as pictured and Kathleen even provided a binder full of different things to experience in the area. One evening we grabbed the local map she had and went for a sunset drive. It was an fantastic trip and Kathleen couldn't have been a better host. I would come back here anytime!
The Rose Covered Cottage is a slice of heaven! We absolutely loved staying in this beautiful and peaceful home. The property is lovely and the cottage sits among majestic ancient redwoods, which is pretty awe-inspiring in itself! The cottage is beautiful and well-appointed, and Kathleen has created a cozy and comfortable retreat.
Kathleen is lovely, and provided lots of information about everything from scenic drives to great dining spots. We loved being within walking distance of town and throughly enjoyed our stay!
Charming indeed! You can't beat the location. We really enjoyed our stay and Kathleen was a great hostess with very helpful restaurant recommendations. Can't wait to visit again.
What a wonderful cottage and attentive hosts.. Spotless and all the necessities and more! I'll be back.
