vacation rental description

[Spring 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.]
(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

traveler reviews for this russian river house rental

Russian River Home

Review submitted: September 21, 2011   Date of arrival: September 10, 2011

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Dog loved it too

Review submitted: March 2, 2010   Date of arrival: June 5, 2009

"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."
