River Rock Cottage - Restored Craftsman in the Upper East

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Restored to perfection, River Rock Cottage is perched on quiet corner in a quaint Upper East neighborhood of Santa Barbara. In true Craftsman style, the classic architectural elements have been preserved, honoring the original integrity of this vintage 1917 home. Wax nostalgic as you relax in the Adirondack chairs on the welcoming wrap-around front porch, with its smooth river rock walls, carved railings, and Craftsman curb appeal. An old oak tree becomes a shady canopy over the outdoor bistro table. This creates another great setting from which to enjoy the country garden below, or a great place to watch the kids playing on the front lawn.

Enjoy relaxed reading with a book from the well-stocked library in the built-in bookshelves. Wainscoting, maple plank flooring, and vintage lighting make this space warm and welcoming. The Master Bedroom is directly off the living room and features a California King size bed, flat screen LED TV and more bright sunshine from corner windows. The second bedroom has a whimsical wrought iron Queen size bed and plenty of storage with built-in cupboards. Between the two bedrooms is the 'Jack and Jill' bathroom that features dual sinks set in Carrara marble. A claw footed tub with rain shower head and handheld sprayer complete this functional bathroom. There is also a convenient powder room off the Living Room. Even on vacation, comfort means home-cooked meals for family and friends.

In the sunny galley-style kitchen, the classic restored Wedgewood stove and yellow retro-style refrigerator add whimsical ambiance. A love seat and antique breakfast table are tucked below corner windows that offer lovely views of the country garden overflowing with white roses, lavender, and culinary herbs. Just outside the kitchen is the barbecue area, complete with a brand new gas barbecue and a collection of recreation toys including sand toys, boogie boards,and surf boards. After a day of fun in the sun, a great outdoor shower on the back porch keeps the beach sand outside! River Rock Cottage is a restful spot in the 'Historic Bungalow Haven District', offering proximity to all the best that Santa Barbara has to offer. From this prime location, walk to downtown shopping and restaurants, attend a concert at the Santa Barbara County Bowl just a few blocks away, or simply stroll the quiet streets to appreciate the well kept gardens and historic homes of the area.

Come enjoy River Rock Cottage! This fantastic vintage retreat promises to be the cornerstone to a relaxing and memorable Santa Barbara vacation.

Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in the beautiful River Rock Cottage! We had a wonderful time and leave with many precious memories--including our infant daughter's first time at the ocean! Wonderful home in a wonderful city--we can't wait to come back!

Hike, Eat, Relax

Review submitted: May 6, 2014   Date of arrival: April 20, 2014

(Transcribed from guestbook at the property)

We came to hike, eat, and relax--and we met our goals in every respect. Hikes we recommend: McMenemy Trail, Matilija Creek, Rattlesnake Canyon, La Jolla Trial, and Scorpion Canyon and Smugglers Cove on Santa Cruz Island. All were special in their own way. Restaurants we enjoyed include: The Lark (best meal of the trip), Zaytoon (fun atmosphere in the evening), Tre Lune (sophisticated brunch in Montecito), Olio e Limone (very good Italian, great service), and Los Olivos Cafe (wonderful lunch). We also took a wine tour with Wine Adventures--would definitely recommend--fun and educational day--nice to taste wines without concern about driving. The River Rock Cottage was an excellent home base for us during our trip--beautiful job on the remodel/restoration! Thank you.

River Rock is fabulous! From the minute we arrived we enjoyed ourselves. So beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. My thanks to Jill for wonderful accommodations! We only wished we could have stayed longer than 3 nights!! Next time we come to Santa Barbara we will!! This is such a great house and great location. This place feels like home away from home! Thank you again so much for allowing me to rent such a beautiful place. We all appreciated our stay here so much! Simply Wonderful!!
