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.

We enjoyed our stay at the Redwood Lane Retreat. The house has an amazing deck with a great view of the hills, trees and even some local vineyards. There was plenty of room for all of us and we enjoyed cooking in the updated kitchen. The town of Guerneville had quite a few eateries and shops, a little bit of everything to choose from. We would definitely go back, next time staying longer.
The pics just don't do this place justice. The deck, yard, and view are gorgeous. We had such a great weekend here! The house is huge, however it is mostly bedrooms. 5 bedrooms with the lower 2 bedrooms having 2 twin beds each, perfect for kids. The master bedroom is gigantic as is the hot tub on the back porch. This home couldn't have been more suited to our needs.
Only about 1.5 hrs away from SF but it really feels like a distant getaway. Great views, great home, recommended.
Great stay for a girl's weekend! The kitchen/dining/living room set up was open and ideal for cooking dinners in the well-stocked kitchen. The house was clean and has a great view overlooking a vineyard. The owners left a nice bottle of wine too. The downstairs bedrooms are a bit cooler than upstairs but there are plenty of blankets. Also I signed an additional contract outside of AirBnb's via fax but the process was smooth.
This house was amazing! The was cozy and comfortable, with a great kitchen and beautiful views of the redwoods all around you. It's very secluded and quiet, but close enough to town where you can go buy food, go hiking or do anything else you'd like. My friends, dog and I had a blast there. I would definitely recommend it and come back!
The management was super friendly and helpful as well!
Great stay and great home. The hot tub was perfect and the yard is to die for!
Lovely space. My guests and I really enjoyed the view of the river, the large dining table and the ample amount of parking. Everything was fully stocked and nicely kept up.
The Swquoia Beach Dreamery was such a unique experience. The level of attention to details is amazing -- as you keep looking around especially outside, you see more and more little things that add to the beauty of the place. You have a beautiful creek in the backyard! And a hot tub where you can look up and see the moon rising from the tall trees. Mesmerizing place.
Beds are very comfortable, living room gives you ample and comfortable space, and the kitchen has everything you need. We could not ask for more.
The owner was very kind to send us details about the area, trails, etc in advance. And, the staff at River Homes Russian River Vacation Homes were a joy to do business with.
All in all, an A+ experience. You won't be disappointed!
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.
The house was the perfect location for our girls weekend away! The kitchen was wonderfully equipped for a large group to make a meal together, and the space was awesome for a group of 8. We will definitely be back! Check in was very easy because of the key code and all of the instructions were very clear. The house was clean and the location could not have been better - a short 5 minute drive to the cute downtown. Thanks for an awesome stay!
