Bella Ursula is an enchanting house nestled among the redwoods and overlooking the Russian River. Bella Ursula's guests enjoy spectacular river views and an ideal combination of old world charm and modern amenities. The tastefully decorated interior features rich knotty pine paneling, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a wood stove. The house is named after the talented artist whose original watercolors adorn many of the walls.
The living room and the king bedroom opens onto a spacious, sunny deck offering views down the river. The deck features a spa and a propane barbecue. Just off the deck is a separate master bedroom and bath with a shower. The kitchen, third bedroom and second bathroom with shower are located on the same level at the front of the house. A stairway leads from the lower yard to a seasonal, private deep water dock. A canoe and two kayaks are available for scenic rides on this beautiful and peaceful portion of the river (available mid-June through mid-September only). Bella Ursula is a fully equipped Russian River Vacation Rental and is close to downtown Guerneville (about one mile west), with unique shops and a variety of restaurants. Northwood Golf Course is also nearby; the Sonoma Coast and many Russian River Valley wineries are only a short drive away.

This is a great little spot in an ideal residential area of Guerneville. The house is actually much nicer and cozier that the pictures seem to show. The interior has tons of warmth and comfort and the kitchen has almost anything you'd need. The property looks great and the hosts made it super convenient to close up and check-out.
The house is right on the river on a street just off 116. It doesn't get better than that if you're looking for some time on the Russian River. The back terrace/porch is super spacious, isolated by tall sequoias, with great views and a hot tub. With plenty of room for 6 or more, we'd book again in a heartbeat.
