The Space

Bonne Chère is, as its name suggests, the ideal spot to kick back, relax and enjoy the good cheer and splendid food and wine that Sonoma County is known for. After a day of trolling for tasty finds (perhaps a new favorite bottle from a family-owned winery or a creamy goat cheese made near the Sonoma Coast or the freshest picks from one of the various farmer's markets), imagine relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine in Bonne Chère's comfortable living room, cooking a feast in the gourmet kitchen, lounging on the spacious deck or taking a soak in the private hot tub.

Inside Bonne Chère, guests will find the home both delightful and modern, with numerous high-end amenities that will lure visitors and keep them coming back time and again. The kitchen is stocked for even the pickiest cook, and includes stainless steel appliances, gas stove, dishwasher, beautiful wood cabinets and tile, and a wine fridge. The living room has a large television, stereo (there is a CD collection available for guests), gas fireplace and ample seating. In both bedrooms, the beds are exceedingly comfortable and made with high-quality linens. The bathroom has modern tile work and a walk-in shower with a window so guests can admire the redwoods and lush hillside while showering (a window curtain can be closed if desired).

Outside Bonne Chère is an extension of the living space. There is outdoor dining, outdoor seating, a gas grill and a private hot tub area. The property continues to wrap around the house to a 'secret' sitting spot, perfect for enjoying a locally roasted cup of Joe or stargazing with a glass of wine. Tucked against a hillside in a Guerneville neighborhood, Bonne Chère feels like its own little private world. Although there are neighbors to both the left and the right, the landscaping around the house and the hillside behind the home provides redwood views and privacy.

Bonne Chère is located in a Guerneville neighborhood a walkable distance from downtown Guerneville. Shops, restaurants, supermarket, river access and services are all within a mile of the property. The Sonoma Coast is 13 miles. Armstrong Redwoods is a 5-minute drive. Wineries in the Russian River Valley and beyond are easily accessible by car. Your stay includes a complimentary bottle of wine.

  • The company we worked with was very helpful and Megan made sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay. The house was perfect for our large 4th of July group. The kitchen, living room and dining room were all open to each other and made it easy to hangout/ socialize with a big group. The house was a two minute walk from the river and all the neighbors we met were wonderful and very helpful. The house was well stocked and all the beds were super comfortable. I would love to stay here again soon!

  • The home was very spacious with plenty of outdoor space to lounge and enjoy the outdoors. We also loved the river front access. River Homes was very friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely consider renting this home and/or other homes provided by River Homes again.

  • The house was perfect for our large group. Plenty of sleeping space and peaceful nooks to get away from the group. My only gripe would be the overall cleanliness of the property. The linens were clean etc but the house stunk from the fireplace and the outside needed some upkeep. Overall it was not a bad place to stay in Guerneville.

  • What a beautiful home with a great private yard. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The home had everything we needed to make us feel as if we hadn't left home. We enjoyed being able to use the grill as well as the fire pit for those chilly nights. The hot tub was a plus as well. I've heard that the game Bocce is a big thing on the west coast. We, unfortunately, had never played and after trying to remove the heavy balls from the garage, decided against trying due to trying to avoid an injury. The only thing this home was missing was a pool. Personally, I would have rather have had the pool versus the Bocce court. Having a washer and dryer was also a huge plus. The only downside to the house was that there was no dishwasher. As someone who loves to cook and hates to do dishes, that was definitely something I missed but I improvised and used one of our human dishwashers instead.

  • The cabin at Austin Creekside is beautiful. The location is stunning, very quiet and surrounded by gorgeous Redwood trees and enormous tree stumps. The living areas of the cabin are very well equipped, with an excellent kitchen full of useful bits and pieces. The bathroom is quite basic, but this doesn't detract from the wonderful space. We very much enjoyed our stay in the area, and my only regret is that we didn't have enough time just to hang out around the cabin, as it's perfectly built for relaxation. A great find! River Homes also helped us out at the very last minute when another booking (with someone else) fell through - we are extremely grateful for this.

  • My family and I had a great time at Redwood Rendezvous. The layout was ideal for the 6 of us with sufficient bedrooms, privacy, and common space to come together. We thoroughly enjoyed the large deck, which was a great sunny place to eat breakfast or to hang out and read. The kitchen/dining/living room layout was nice with an open floorplan that meant we could all hang out together during meal prep. The kitchen was fully stocked with all necessary tools and plenty of dishes, etc. It was easy to walk to a swimming beach on the river. The place was very clean. River Homes was responsive and professional. No complaints - a thoroughly enjoyable experience!
