Our Rose Covered Cottage is on a quiet lane in Guerneville. Just a few blocks from town and a short walk to the river. The guest cottage overlooks a cottage garden, with separate entrance and parking. Historically it was built as a water tower about 1900. 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. There is a small but fully equipped kitchen and 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!

We had such a magical experience at the rose cottage! Kathleen is a very genuine and charming host who shows a lot of love for her cottage. We brought our 2 month old with us, this was his first vacation away from home so we were a bit unsure of how it would all play out. Arriving at the cottage, we felt safe, very welcomed and the cottage itself was very spacious for all of us. We really enjoyed our stay and had a lot of fun walking down to say hello to the chickens throughout the day. We would definitely like to return! I would highly recommend!!
This cottage is very conveniently located (short walk to the main street on Gurneville), it's quite, peaceful and is well kept. Kathleen has a nice binder full of great local information - places eat, hiking trails etc. - which was extremely useful. We hope to return soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The setting is amazing among the redwoods and garden. The cottage itself was charming, maximized for convenience and comfort. There are endless things to do in the area. We especially enjoyed exploring the vineyards on bike. Ed and Kathleen were great hosts: easy check-in, helpful info binder, and local guide books. We highly recommend the cottage for a peaceful getaway.
Kathleen's beautiful rose-covered cottage was a perfect weekend getaway! The house was clean and comfortable, including a kitchen fully equipped for cooking. We loved seeing (and feeding!) the chickens in the morning. Kathleen gave us great recommendations for dinners - Guerneville is an adorable town, and the cottage is walking distance to many great restaurants and an adorable coffee shop. We also enjoyed Armstrong Woods, which is only 2 miles away!
We had a great stay at the Rose Cottage. It was exactly as described and Kathleen took a good amount of time ensuring we were familiar with the surrounding area and attractions. It is the perfect place for a cozy getaway in Guerneville as downtown is just 3 short blocks in distance. Would highly recommend.
Perfect getaway! Location is very close to the mountain state park, walking distance to the town, and short driving distances to neighboring towns, such as Bodega Bay, etc. As described, the place is nicely maintained, private and well-equipped with modern amenities. Kathleen is also very accomodating and a wonderful host.
