New listing! City chic in the redwoods w/ deck & Ping-Pong- near the river!
Find the elegance of an urban retreat in a serene forest setting at this polished Guerneville home, gorgeously situated in a grove of redwoods only a mile from the center of town. This beautiful space is full of high-end finishes, from the large adjustable flatscreen TV to the glass NanaWall that opens completely to the deck and the surrounding trees. In this tranquil setting only 700 feet from the Russian River, you'll have a lovely outdoor space where you can grill and relax, your very own Ping-Pong table, and a gas fireplace to welcome you home from days spent wine tasting, swimming, or kayaking on the river.
What's nearby: This peaceful home sits among the trees one mile northeast of downtown Guerneville, a charmingly unique community full of independent shops, restaurants, and river beaches. You'll be just up Drake Road from Johnson's Beach and a public tennis court, and a short and scenic drive from some of Sonoma County's best wineries (including the beautiful Korbel Winery only four miles east). If you're looking to explore your natural surroundings, you can take morning hikes in Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve three miles north, or head 14 miles west to the rugged ocean shores of Sonoma Coast State Park.

This wonderful home was EXACTLY what our family wanted...comfortable, clean, beautiful, and safe. This home gives one the feeling that you are in a tree house amongst the redwoods! The neighborhood was quiet and perfect for morning or evening strolls. We hope to be back again.

Loved our stay! Nice modern touch, clean, great location, well stocked kitchen implements, and very few critters indoors given how wooded the lot is. Only feedback is back door didn't bolt lock, so had to trust safety, and cable didn't work, but didn't really try to watch TV.
Hi, Anil! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Roo's River House. We were unable to find any problems with the dead bolt but will keep an eye on it. The cable has been verified as working when on the correct input. Please do not hesitate to call for assistance with these matters. Thank you!

The house had everything we needed for a fun filled weekend getaway. Ping pong, cornhole, dominoes and a quick walk to down to jump on the water. Quiet and beautiful home in the trees.

Small, cozy home nestled among redwoods. Short drive into Guerneville and Armstrong Grove Redwoods and Korbel Winery up the road.

Thoughtfully decorated, modern, airy and comfortable house. Awesome porch - happily took advantage of the grill, ping pong & cornhole. Easy access to guerneville and wineries. Can see the river from the deck but no walkable public access to the river - we went to a beach about 10m drive down the main road.

It’s very close to the river, downtown, 20-26 minutes from ocean view. When we first got there it was not clean, but Vacasa redeemed themselves and made it right! Other than that the house was plenty for two people. The grill worked great! Make sure you purchase your own condiments and spices for cooking and seasoning. Steep drive when entering the house but manageable. It can get hot at night but was cool at times. No AC but they have fans which helped keep it cool. We would go back again and stay at the same house.

Roo’s house is nestled in the woods in a ravine with pretty views from every window. It’s a short distance from Guerneville which is convenient to the Sonoma coast and wine country, with a couple good restaurants in town.
The beds are comfy, it has nice shower and good cable options. We didn’t get to enjoy the deck, ping pong or grill due to weather.
The only heat in the house is a gas fireplace. It’s adequate though doesn’t regulate thermostatically. Heated floors in the bathroom are a nice touch.
All in all, a great rental which we’d use again.

Had a great weekend staying at Roo's! An impeccably decorated place, close to town and the river!

Roo's Riverhouse is an incredible retreat -- almost a treehouse in the Redwoods, with superior furnishings, attention to every single detail a traveler might want -- from a high class kitchen equipped with everything for whipping up gourmet meals, to comfy beds, an easy to use furnace stove ... and a huge deck for relaxing or playing games. Such a wonderful place, you will never want to go off on the many local adventures the nearby area offers -- easy access to the ocean, the Redwoods, the Russian River, and the quirky town of Guerneville ... and especially the so very retro and inviting Pee Wee Golf course nearby. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a getaway where you feel pampered and happy!

Great house. Check in was easy. House was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We like to cook and the kitchen was well equipped. Beautiful deck to enjoy all the trees around the property. Bedrooms were comfortable.The pics don’t compare to how nice this place is.
