Property Details

Updated: May 15, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

%5BSpring 2008 update: Two kayaks, with paddles and lifejackets, are available for your

use, at no extra charge! Email me for details. Please note that they're not available during the winter, as the river is generally too dangerous.%5D

(Please see website -- hiddenhavenrussianriver -- for more pics and info) Hidden Haven is the best of both worlds: only a short walk away

from beautiful river beaches, yet so private and quiet that it feels

a world away. Located at the end of a one-lane road, it's surrounded

on three sides by forest; on the fourth side, a small cabin through the trees that is rarely used. "Serenity" is the operative word here.

We've recently renovated, adding a bamboo floor in the open-plan

living/dining area, a deck, and a big fancy hot tub. Classy

furniture, decorations, and place settings complete the picture. The

place is truly charming.

Both bedrooms have new beds, top-quality linens, and down

comforters. Because they're downstairs, the bedrooms stay cool in the

summer, which you will definitely appreciate. People sleep very well


The downstairs bathroom has an Aquatic Davenport Whirlpool tub.

The upstairs one has a delightful shower with a view.

The kitchen has all you need for some advanced cooking, and a

little table to sit at and admire the tree-top-level views through

the giant windows.

A rather stunning river beach is just 4 minutes' walk away. (See

photo.) A great place to swim or launch a kayak.

Guest comments:

"We were comfortable from the minute we opened the front door -- a perfectly planned

house with interesting and complementary furnishings. Compliments to you!... We truly

felt the peace, harmony and energy you've created here." -- Nancy and Bob

"Here on our honeymoon, we have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home and

surroundings! For starters, the home is simply stunning! So quiet and peaceful. Everything

so charming, from oriental paintings to the bamboo wind-chimes, so many special

touches. We enjoyed leisurely lunches and naps on the porch, and long baths overlooking

the trees with rays of sunshine coming through. We will be back for a special anniversary!"

-- Natalia and Henry

"So peaceful, so relaxing! We loved the singing of the crickets, cooking in front of the

trees, the sunlight beaming through the branches, the silence, the comfy beds and warm

towels, the walk to the beach... thank you!" -- Sylvie

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved staying up in the trees, it’s so peaceful here! The beds are so comfortable and the sheets are so soft. Pepper [the dog] had a great time too and we doubt he wants to go home. We went rafting, wine tasting and hiking. This is a great location."

Hidden Haven: Private, Beautiful Retreat for 2-5 People
+1 -415.264.2378
Russian River Wine Country
Moraga, ca USA

Russian River Home

  • 4 of 5
The house is very nicely decorated and very clean, it is nestled on a hillside and you are surrounded by trees which offers a lot of privacy.
It is not close to the river as the pictures may suggest, if you want to use the canoes, it will take some serious effort. The hot tub however is delightful.
Even though it was not an inconvenience for us I would not recommend the house to anyone who has a hard time with stairs, both inside and outside the stairs are steep and somewhat treacherous.
We were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen well appointed with basic supplies.
The bedrooms have the coziest linen but are on the small side.
The owner is very easy to deal with.

Activity and Interests

The Russian River, in case you don't know it, is ideal for swimming,

fishing, kayaking, canoing, etc.

We are also in wine country. Wineries are a short drive (or beautiful

bike ride) away. The ocean is 20 minutes west.
