Overview

Photos and Description of the Guerneville vacation cabin rental

Completely Renovated in 2015 with all new furnishings, beddings, etc.

Welcome to the Knotty and Nice Inn, an adorable little cabin nestled amongst a grove of towering redwoods near the Russian River. Conveniently located on a charming private lane, just a short stroll from the river and cute little town of Guerneville, the Knotty and Nice is the perfect hub for your wine country vacation. This vintage Russian River knotty pine classic has been lovingly restored to its former glory – but with all of the modern niceties for your comfortable stay. Start your day with a cup of morning coffee on the front porch, followed by a paddle down the scenic Russian River in one of our complimentary watercraft - or perhaps a hike amongst the towering giants in nearby Armstrong Woods, a leisurely day of winetasting at one of our of nearby wineries, or a drive along the Pacific Ocean. With no shortage of nearby adventures, at the end of the day, you’ll be ready to unwind in our soothing five-person spa located under an enchanting redwood canopy. When dinnertime beckons, you’ll find many excellent dining options in downtown Guerneville or any one of our quaint nearby towns (we highly recommend River’s End in nearby Jenner for the incredible food and amazing ocean views). After dinner, enjoy a nice bottle from one of our world class wineries by the warmth of our outdoor fireplace. Rest well in our comfy beds, as tomorrow’s another adventure at the river.

KEY AMENITIES/FEATURES:

• 3-bedroom/1.5-bath vintage Knotty pine cabin, fully renovated in 2015 with modern amenities

• 5-minute walk to the river and 10-minute walk to town

• Well-stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances

• Five-person spa and private outdoor rain can shower (hot water)

• 2 fireplaces - Indoor gas and Outdoor wood-burning (plenty of wood provided)

• 1 Canoe, 2 Kayaks, and lifejackets provided for seasonal use (for those with SUVs or pickups)

• His and Hers cruiser bikes (available late Spring through early Fall)

• Flat panel smart TVs in the living room and master bedroom

• Front porch, rear deck, landscaped front and rear yards

• Three-burner Weber gas BBQ (hard-piped so you will never run out of gas or need to change tanks)

LOCATION – This charming 3 Bedroom/1.5 Bath vintage Russian River cottage is conveniently located on a private lane one quarter mile from the local beach and one mile west of charming downtown Guerneville. With numerous wineries located just minutes away, Guerneville is the perfect hub for your wine tasting expeditions. Other attractions within 30 minutes of our home are the local redwood forests, the oceanfront towns of Jenner and Bodega Bay, the world-renowned Russian River Brewery (home of Piney the Elder), and beautiful Occidental.

TWO BEAUTIFUL FIREPLACES – If you enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a nice fire but don’t want to hassle with starting a fire, you’ll appreciate the gas fireplace in the living room. If, on the other hand, you prefer the real thing, we have you covered with a very cool outdoor fireplace located in the back yard (complimentary firewood is provided).

SUNDANCE SPA – Hot tub lovers will appreciate the five-person spa located in a private gazebo, under the redwoods canopy, on the back deck. Kids young and old will love the private outdoor rain can shower (hot and cold water) located a few steps away from the spa.

WATERCRAFT – For those of you with pickups or SUVs, we provide a canoe, two kayaks, paddles, and lifejackets for seasonal use. We highly recommend the two-hour float from the nearby local beach (1/4 of a mile east) to the takeout in Monte Rio west of town.

BEDROOMS – Our bedrooms feature high thread-count linens, plenty of comfy down pillows (synthetic also available), down comforters, and new queen pillow top mattresses in the master and guest bedrooms. The built-in bunk beds in the bunk room (also in with down comforters and pillows) are sure to be a big hit with the kids.

BATHROOMS – Knotty and Nice features a newly renovated full bath with walk-in shower and direct access from both the master bedroom and guest bedroom hallway (two locking doors for privacy). Larger groups will appreciate the additional half-bath located off the great room and the large private outdoor shower, located by the hot tub. We provide plenty of towels for the house and hot tub, plus shampoo, conditioner, soap, and blow dryer.

WELL STOCKED KITCHEN – Our fully-renovated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, microwave, toaster, blender, and stainless steel cookware. You will find our home will stocked with supplies, including an extensive spice collection, olive oil, balsamic, cooking oil, flour and baking supplies, coffee/teas, sugar/honey/cocoa, and more.

Notes:
We want all of our guests to have a fantastic experience and only pleasant surprises, so please do let us know if you have any questions or special requests. To that end, you should be aware that most properties located close to town and the river experience noise from River Road, which is heavily travelled during the day but quiets down at night; our property backs up to River Road and is no exception. Walking distance to town and the river does come at a price. You will also find that many Russian River cabins are uninsulated, as is ours. For this reason, in addition to the baseboard heaters in the bedrooms, we have installed a new high-end gas fireplace in the living room - our home is now warm and cozy. As our home is only 900 sf, our bedrooms are small but cozy, so pack accordingly.
