Great Family Spot on the River
This property has so much to offer. My family enjoyed cooking together in the country kitchen, playing in the backyard, late nights
with the pool table, and games together in the spacious living room. We slept well in the large beds and each had our own bathroom. Then there is the river!! Kayaking and swimming with our own sandy
beach. The owner was so helpful and responsive to all our questions and requests. We hope to be back again next year.
Stop looking - this is the best place you'll ever find!
We've stayed in many places along the RR, and this is our absolute favorite! The attention to detail is fantastic: memorabilia everywhere, comfortable furniture,
luxurious beds, every kitchen item you might ever need, and fun for all with the pool table & video game machine. The decks are welcoming with a lovely view of the expansive yard & river, and
the beach is the best we've experienced, complete with a variety of boats & floaties. Steve was a wonderful host, providing lots of information ahead of time but also available for multiple phone
calls when we had specific questions. We wished we could have stayed forever, and look forward to our next visit!
A perfect getaway!
We had our first family get together now that we are all vaccinated and it was really lovely. A couple of us had to work from home a couple of days and the internet
worked like a charm. We loved kayaking and canoeing and the hot tub. There is plenty of space to eat outside or inside. The kitchen has everything you need. We made some great memories and I look
forward to returning next year.
A Wonderful Time at Grandma’s House
The property was everything — and more — as described. Even in
these stressful Covid time we felt safe gathering outside on the expansive lawn and on the private beach. The four bedrooms with their own bathrooms and separate
outside entries also were great for insuring carefulness. Our only regret is that we couldn’t fully enjoy the great room and game room. Something we would love to do in a future post-Covid visit
Everything we needed was there and the canoe, paddleboat, kayaks and other water toys were great when rest of family staying in separate homes in the area could gather — safely outside Steve — thank
you again for making such a wonderful gathering home available on my favorite part of the River
What A Vacation House Should Be!
This house and property are wonderful. The yard and river access is idyllic and there is so much room in the house and so much to do (games, pool, guitar, piano,
etc) . You don't need to every leave the property, with all there is to do in and outside the house. We especially loved kayaking on the river. It exceeded our expectations.
Perfect for Families!
Our family had a wonderful time at Grandma’s House! We were seven adults and three 8 year-olds, and there was something for everyone to enjoy. The house is very well
stocked with games and activities for all ages as well as outdoor and river “toys” ... canoe, kayaks, bicycles, life jackets, sand toys, and more. We took advantage of the nearby golf course, as well
as the close proximity of the ocean beaches and a redwoods hike, although there is plenty to do right out the back door on the lovely riverfront property. The hot tub was great, taking the kids out
in the canoe, and the pool table and the video arcade got a workout every night. The hosts are great, and very responsive, and everyone in the family, from 8 to 70, had a fantastic time!
What Happens at Grandma's House Stays at Grandma's House
Thank you Steve for sharing your very special unique house with us again!! We had another awesome family vacation. This property is amazing and perfect for a family
of 10-12. The lawn is great and perfect for pets. We so enjoyed the water toys and appreciate all the amenities offered. The rooms are spacious, clean and each have their own restrooms. The living
room and pool table make you feel like you are at an old hunting lodge/cabin while the Kitchen and bedrooms have been updated for comfort, each room has it's own outside access to the lawn/Deck, so
you don't have to disturb other guests. We will definitely be going back soon....Highly Recommended!!!
We had a spectacular time at Grandma's house. Everything in the listing is true and up to date. Most well stocked kitchen I have ever rented from. Roomy and
We were invited to Grandmas House for a cozy family birthday celebration weekend in mid November. We were impressed with the size of this beautiful vacation get away
with plenty of space and lots of activities to do. The four separate suites were supplied with hygiene products and the kitchen with all of the cooking essentials. We spent the day on the back deck
enjoying the beautiful scenery of the river, huge redwoods and wildlife. The evenings were spent watching movies from Grandma's video library in front of a fireplace and playing pool on the billiards
table. Grandmas House was certainly worthy of the 3 hour drive and only wish the stay could have been longer than a weekend in order to enjoy kayaking down the river and spending time in the hot tub.
We are already considering a future stay at grandmas house sometime next year.
Best Christmas Ever
We had my whole family (son, daughter, their spouses and grandchildren) at Grandma's House for Christmas. What a perfect setting. The house was decorated to the
nines. My grandchildren started counting the Christmas trees and lost track because there were so many. The view from the kitchen and back deck was amazing. We canoed and saw otters and blue herons
and recovered in the hot tub. The layout of the house was perfect for our needs. Every family had a spacious bedroom with their own connected bathroom. Thank you Steve for sharing this piece of
heaven with us.
Maybe the best Russian River house we've stayed in for our family getaway! We had to change our reservations a couple of times due to Covid, and Stephen (the host)
could not have been better about it. In fact, Stephen seems like one of those people who is a natural host. We received fresh baked bread from a neighbor soon after checking in. Communication was
great every step of the way. The access to the river, with its private beach and dock, was excellent. Plenty of beach toys provided. The paddle boat is missing its rudder, so we didn't use it.. There
were other boats available though. The house is quite large and really well laid out for a group of adults. The beds were comfy, and the house stayed cool during the heat. If you're looking for
trendy decor, this isn't it. We got a kick out of the Grandma styled house, like going back in time. Could do without the taxidermied animals, but of course that does make the grandma's house aspect
more authentic. Might be part of the history of the house... Kitchen beautifully equipped. For 3 couples and 1 single, the bedrooms all have their advantages. The front room queen is adorable with a
kitchenette (but no refrigerator). The other kitchenette does have a mini frig. Lots of space and privacy for everyone + fun communal spaces = perfect. The grounds and decks are gorgeous. An apple
and plum tree provided some unexpected snackage. There was some road noise, but not bad compared to a place we stayed in a couple of years ago near Guerneville. Loved the rope swing directly across
the river. We hope to come back next year! Thank you for everything!
This is the best Riverfront Property Ever! Fabulous Country House that has EVERYTHING you could want. Gorgeous views -- beautiful decks-- very comfortable
furniture both inside and out. Every possible cooking item you could imagine. Huge country kitchen, perfect for making great meals. The owners are so helpful. Our kids adored the games, toys, water
toys, the rope swing on the River. Our dog was in swimming heaven. Cannot say enough about this wonderful property. Every amenity imaginable. Lots to do in the area for kids and adults. Can't wait to
go back. It was a week of pure heaven for all.
Have stayed at many properties in the area over the years, and this is defintitely the best I have ever stayed at. Plenty of parking, very nice kitchen, great view,
Our family stayed at Grandma's house over the Memorial Day weekend. We had a fabulous time. There was something there for everyone. We played golf, went wine tasting
and explored some great restaurants. Grandma's house was perfect for our family. Family members took advantage of the hot tub, learned a new song on the piano, staged a competitive pool tournament
and sat on the deck and watched the river flow by. The kitchen is spacious and accommodated us for a big family dinner. We will definitely be back.
