Kelly October 2021
The location and place were perfect for our little weekend getaway. Close access to the river, 10 miles to the ocean, great hiking trails nearby, and only a quick drive to Guerneville for food, shopping, and dining out. Cozy and comfortable indoors, lovely outdoor space for relaxing. Highly recommend.

Kelly October 2021
Great home for a family getaway to Monte Rio! Plenty of space and very well stocked kitchen. We had a great time!

Renee September 2021
Great place!

Katie September 2021
Great space - perfect and comfortable for 8 people. Very clean and cozy. A great place to return from a day of redwoods, beach or vineyards. Our family wants to come back again!

Chris August 2021
Great experience! Easy seamless check-in and out process. Russian River Getaways was always quick to respond to question. Definitely would recommend them and will use them in the future.

Vickie August 2021
We spent a lovely week in this very spacious, rustic home. The separate in-law unit was fantastic. Great deck, enclosed backyard, and a 5-minute walk to the river. Not super clear from the listing but one of the bedrooms is a loft (no doors); it was very comfortable nonetheless. The house was not properly cleaned (dust and cobwebs) let alone subject to an enhanced cleaning process as advertised. The management company reimbursed half the cleaning fee but we would have just preferred a clean house.

Tim & Ben July 2021
This was a beautiful house very close to the river. The house has an excellent great room setup that opens to a deck which is perfect all day and evening. The main house master bedroom is huge. The additional flat has a full kitchen and 2 bedrooms (one with a loft). The street seems to have lots of traffic and you can hear the trucks. The shades bring in lots of light but also the morning sun. It was a great week.

Rumeli July 2021
This home is gorgeous, spacious, well-stocked (the only thing we didn't find when cooking 6 nights for 3 families was a salad spinner!), close to the river (Monte Rio public beach was great!) and a store for any last-minute needs. It was clean and linens and bath towels were provided (bring your own beach towels). Lots of room inside and out (there's even a good space for bikes, beach chairs, etc.) and the hot tub was great. We even picked blackberries from the driveway area. The granny unit has its own kitchen, bathroom, laundry, sitting area and two bedrooms. If it were cheaper we'd want to come multiple times a year! We hope to go again next summer--such a fun trip!

Ashish June 2021
Great location an d well furnished house. Great for exploring Russian River Valley area as well as spending time at home relaxing with family.

Sang June 2021
Beautiful place and location. The house had everything we needed for the weekend. Would stay again!

Connor May 2021
Awesome house in a nice location

Nicole May 2021
Perfect location and set up.House is spacious and perfect for a large group like ours. The two sides of the house was also a nice feature so people could have more privacy or quiet when they wanted to. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay again next time we’re in we loved our stay here and would definitely stay again next time we’re in the area.

Jason May 2021
Fantastic get away! Great location, huge house with lots of amenities. We had a great time and would visit again!

Peter May 2021
What a great house! There were 8 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone. The master bedroom is a palace and the kitchen’s location is perfect, allowing those cooking to still be part of the action. We brought a cornhole set along and played all weekend on the spacious deck, where we also ate all our meals thanks to excellent weather. The “crow’s nest” is a great retreat for some quiet time, if needed. All in all in was a perfect weekend and everyone left smiling. We’ll be back!

Michelle May 2021
This house is fantastic. Absolutely beautiful, super central location, great for our small group of six. Staff was super responsive and attentive whenever we reached out and needed help. Will definitely be returning to do a float this summer!

Elyse April 2021
If you're thinking about staying here - DO IT! I've stayed in so many Airbnbs globally, and this certainly ranks as one of the best for 3 reasons (I'll expand below): (1) Home (2) Hospitality (3) Location. Home: - The home is breathtaking, truly. It's the perfect balance of "homey" (very cute eclectic decoration pieces) but still felt like a b&b because of the hospitable touches throughout the house (i.e. towels, doggy poop bags, hot tub cleaner, wood for fireplace, etc). Very massive property too. - The home itself is nested in so many trees WITH fencing around the entire property. - Dog friendly to the max, if you have a dog stay here. You can freely let your pup roam the big backyard without worrying about them getting in the street. - WINDOWS GALORE, this entire house really leverages the beautiful scenery so well. Each room is surrounded by windows with tasteful bamboo blinds that keep out direct light / heat, but still allow for visibility of views. - Washer and dryer was really helpful for drying our wet jacuzzi towels. Dishwasher made cleanup for 8 people a lot easier, and all the kitchen tools / glasses / mugs were greatly appreciated! - Wifi was super fast for us folks who had to work. There were tiny lags when 7+ people tried to all Zoom video at the same time, but that's completely to be expected (especially for how remote this is). Normal emailing, web browsing, etc were lightening fast. Hospitality: - The folks at Russian River Getaway were so wonderful. Extremely quick response times, and answered all my questions thoroughly. I admittedly asked questions that were already clearly outlined in the check-in instructions, but still got such nice and helpful responses back. - I normally am hesitant about staying in AirBnbs that are managed by a property management company because it lacks that "personal" touch, but this was not the case. This house felt like a home in all the thoughtful touches, and the folks at RRG were extremely nice and sent responses that didn't feel automated or anything. Location: - Walking distance from the river, beautiful trees, and the town - need I say more

Jennifer April 2021
This is a gorgeous home in a gorgeous location. We had 9 people and everyone had ample space. Kids loved the lofts!

Christopher April 2021
A wonderful stay at a great house not far from the River in Monte Rio.

Amir March 2021
Great house, together with the granny unit it is practically 2 units that can be used with friends where each family has its privacy and even separate kitchen. 3 min walk from the river beach and 3 min walk from a grocery store, so great location.

Brian March 2021
This was my second stay at Artisan house. It's in a great location and the house feels both cozy and spacious.

Mindy March 2021
This home is perfect for a large group and the yard is great for dogs! It is very close to the main road and also close to neighbors. If you are looking for a more secluded location, this isn’t it but we loved our stay there regardless! The place is very spacious and beautiful. I loved the extra floor poufs for more comfortable seating for large groups.

Alexandra February 2021
Our pod of friends were very pleased with the accommodations at the house. Each of the beds were very comfortable, there was an ample amount of kitchen tools for cooking, and the hot tub and living spaces were great for relaxing together and playing board/card games. The wood stove was enough to keep us warm, and we found enough warm blankets for additional heat when it got cold at night. Would definitely recommend staying here and will be back when the weather is warmer!

Yaron February 2021
Kayla and team were extremely helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much. Place was clean, and we enjoyed the space and hospitality. Outdoor yard is large and has space to hang out and enjoy the outdoors. The outdoor hot tub is also quite nice and large. The house is in a great location just minutes from the river and has nice view of the forest and trees around it. Recommended.

Robert February 2021
Fantastic location with an easy drive to the coast or to the wineries. The two house situation is ideal for Covid. The kitchen in the main house has everything you need to make a gourmet dinner. Wonderful spot.

Astrid December 2020
The weather was not on our side this trip so we stayed indoors mostly, but the home was very clean and well stocked with tools to make meals. I'd definitely recommend the home for a large group. It was so beautiful and a breath of fresh air to have so many trees surrounding the home. There is also a convenience store within walking distance that was really great for last minute items we forgot at home.

Caroline December 2020
Such a special house. Our family of four went with another family of four and there was plenty of room for everyone. It was chilly so we really enjoyed the hot tub and fireplaces. We can’t wait to come again!

Yoon December 2020
Great property. Fantastic for large groups

Jeanmarie November 2020
For the most part we had a lovely stay. However there were a few things that made it uncomfortable. Particularly we were so cold most of the time. The wood stove in the great room doesn’t produce enough heat to make a difference. The kitchen was spacious and equipped but many of the dishes had baked on crud and there were quite a few ants the first day. The hot tub was a joy and there is plenty of space. It was a great stay that could have been better if a few maintenance issues were addressed. Be careful of the front stairs. There is a broken step and when covered with leaves it is unnoticeable. I slipped and fell on the final day and hurt my leg pretty badly.

Response from Russian River Getaways November 2020
Thanks for the review and feedback, Jeanmarie. We are glad you enjoyed Artisan. We will take care of the step immediately. Thank you for calling it to our attention. We'll look into the other items you mention as well. Please know in the future that you can call us while you are in house if you need help with important things like heat. Generally the wall heaters, gas fireplace, and space heaters are enough for folks, but not always! -Rachel

Alyssa November 2020
Great space in a beautiful location. We were 2 families trying our best to social distance and stay safe. We felt very comfortable here and took notice of disinfectants and other amenities provided that we could use to sanitize if we felt it needed so. The second kitchen was also super useful and the hot tub was great! Not to mention the beds and pillows were very comfy which surprised us all. Overall a great space to stay with lots of room!

Alexa November 2020
Literally just the best place ever. Will come back!

Perri November 2020
Thank you for our wonderful stay at River Getaways! The place was perfect for a relaxing weekend with girlfriends. We loved the comfort of your living room and the openness of the kitchen. Made for a truly special weekend. Thank you again for being so quick to respond and making everything super easy. Also, the guest house was an added plus and a great space to work on Friday.

Meral November 2020
Thank you to River Getaways for setting us up with such an amazing house. I would 100% stay here again! It’s close enough to wineries and the river but also big and comfortable enough to spend the whole weekend cozy inside. I highly recommend!

Rowan October 2020
We needed a new trip spot where the family could get away mid Covid! We decided a cabin with kitchen would be perfect, we had so much fun cooking and hanging out here. Highly recommend!

Sarah October 2020
Had a wonderful stay here! We didn’t realize the place is split into 2 separate places with 2 kitchens. This is really nice in COVID times! Also you can access deck from outside house so is great to have friends drop by! WiFi worked well for multiple people and there was plenty of space to stretch out.

Jamie September 2020
Lovely place. The kitchen, master bedroom and deck were our favorite spaces. What impressed us the most is how well stocked the kitchen is with high end pots, pans, glassware, cutlery, and utensils. Made cooking and grilling a pleasure. Not our usual experience in rentals. Highly recommend.

Neal September 2020
Great location for a relatively large group. Having the separate in-law unit is convenient for having a bit of extra privacy.

Tate September 2020
Beautiful house with great deck space, awesome amenities and fantastic decor. Kitchen is very open and great for making family meals together. The additional granny suite next door is excellent for having some secluded space away from the main house. The house is very close to Russian River and great if you plan on floating or hanging out by the water. Loved our stay would definitely come back again.

Erin August 2020
For a large family (6 + a set of grandparents) this home is perfect. The kitchen is large and open (which allows for everyone to be together). There are three bathrooms and two laundry units (each with a washer and dryer). There is plenty of space for people to relax. It is a short walk to the river... but when that it too crowded you have the ability to use the home's large yard to relax and enjoy the redwoods! Easy and quick access to the ocean and hiking trails!

Veronica August 2020
We had a great time at Monte Rio, the location of the house is perfect! Walking distance to the river and very close to the beach. We'll be back very soon.

James July 2020
A great family stay at a wonderful home, which exceeded our expectation. The home is beautifully designed, with the the interior and outdoor spacious and perfect to relax and socialise in. The home is well equipped, especially the kitchen. Highly recommended, we’d go back any day.

Christina July 2020
Everything was lovely and we created some truly treasured memories in Monte Rio and the Russian River Area! We would definitely reccomend the house! The house comfortably slept 2 families for a total of 8. Perfect common areas with plenty of spaces to hide out or sneak in a nap. We loved being able to walk across the Monte Rio bridge to get to the beach and float our cares away. If you are into cooking, you might want to bring some non-stick pans and a couple baking sheets - we could have used some extras in the kitchen but all in all, we were extremely satisfied with our stay at The Artisan House!

JoJo July 2020
Beautiful home in a peaceful location with great access to river and coast. Plenty of space indoor and out. Hope to visit again!

Brian July 2020
Quiet, spacious and just minutes from the river. Great kitchen! Well designed spaces both inside the house and in the yard.

Susan July 2020
Perfect location and easy walk to the beach. House has a great layout.

Ashley March 2020
This house is beautiful, spacious and private. We look forward to coming back!

Lauren February 2020
I booked this house last year for my birthday weekend and loved it so much that I booked it again this year! I love that there's lots of communal space to hang out (big living room, kitchen, dining room, and back deck), but every couple also had their own room for some privacy. It's a beautiful spot, great location, great amenities. Highly recommend!

Margaret February 2020
Great space for a large group!

Shiela Mae January 2020
The Bohemian House was a wonderful place to stay. I picked this house to host my family and friends for my 30th birthday. We were a group of 10 and we all had a wonderful time. Everything in the house was easy to find and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. I brought my own spices to cook with including salt and pepper! Bartlett's was a awesome bodega to walk to for last minute items. We did come on a rainy weekend so there were a few ants. All in all, I would highly recommend.

Response from Russian River Getaways January 2020
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Artisan House, Shiela, and appreciate the review and recommendation! -Rachel

Ron December 2019
Nice, spacious house. Wood is needed for heating via wood stove.

Response from Russian River Getaways December 2019
Thank you for the review and feedback, Ron. Wood is definitely necessary if you want to fire up the woodstove, but there is also a gas fireplace and electric heat throughout the house to keep folks nice and toasty. -Rachel

Robyn And Tim December 2019
Great location for wine tasting, hiking in the redwoods or at the beach.

Clem November 2019
The place is great but we encountered a few problems. There was a dead rat on the dining area. When we called about it it took several hours for them to come and clean it up. Also there was a big rain storm one night we were there and the roof leaked in a couple of places, one directly over a bed where someone was sleeping. For all of our troubles the gave us only $100 on a 3 night stay that totaled over $ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) We felt that this was insufficient. For a photo of the rat email me (Email hidden by Airbnb) and I will send it along. Again with out these problems it was a great place.

Response from Russian River Getaways November 2019
Well, rats happen...and it's worth noting that we took care of both that and the roof leaks as soon as we were notified of them, so neither was the sort of ongoing condition that might have justified a larger refund. Of course, when we discover a pest issue, we engage immediately in abatement, which is the case here, and the roof leaks are fixed. -Rachel

Amy November 2019
We LOVED our stay!!! We spent the weekend at the Artisan for my husbands 40th Birthday celebration & it did not disappoint! We loved how cozy it was but also how much space it had for our guests! So beautiful and pictures were very accurate! We had 5 couples over the week and was lovely that everyone had their own room for privacy! We look forward to staying here again and again! I also appreciate all the help that we received from Russian River Getaways with getting our trip put together and all the wonderful suggestions! It’s a must do if you ever find yourself needing a relaxing tree house in the woods!

Corey November 2019
This house is gorgeous, and large and comfortable. The wood stoves are a wonderful touch. The kitchen is VERY well appointed and nicely laid out. The hosts are very easy to communicate with and we were able to get a late checkout, which meant we got to have one more meal together. Highly recommend for a friends getaway or a family reunion! We’d happily stay here again.

Tim October 2019
We really appreciate your help and willingness to accommodate us with changes because of the wildfires. We are hoping the best for you and everyone in the area.

Chris October 2019
Wonderful house!

Jenny October 2019
our family had such an amazing stay here : ) beautiful, stylish home with the coziest (yet spacious!) feel to it. would absolutely stay again!

Margie September 2019
We enjoyed our stay in this rustic and quirky home with it's great location and privacy.

Eduardo September 2019
This is a great house that could easily accommodate two families traveling together. The wood burning stove was a great amenity but the star of the show was the tremendous terrace and back yard where you could entertain your guests. This is perfect as both a family vacation home or a corporate retreat venue.

Kaš September 2019
The space is beautiful and plentiful. There was a slight cleaning hiccup that got in the way of enjoying our first evening on the property but it got resolved in good time. We especially loved the amount of kitchen supplies available and the huge deck for hanging out on. Thanks

Nicholas August 2019
We had a great family weekend here, close to everything and convenient, great space for entertaining. When we went the weather was perfect, but I can see that in other times of the year it may get either very hot or very cold due to single pane windows, no AC, etc. We only experienced a little heat in the day on the second floor, but they have fans to help.

Jen August 2019
The artisan house was cozy, clean & quiet. We loved how the home was nestled into the redwoods and had that classic "cabiny" feel. The woodwork was beautiful and the decor was a nice relief from the uber contemporary style you see in many updated rentals. We had a professional chef in our party and he loved the power of the gas range. The location gave way to easy trips into Occidental & Guerneville. It accommodated our group perfectly. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Lauren February 2019
We had a great time staying at this house in Monte Rio! The house itself is cute and cozy and even larger than the pictures show. We had a group of 10 people and it was perfect...plenty of space. Coming in February, it was very chilly so we didn't get to enjoy the outside spaces as much as we would have liked but the backyard is a really great space, especially if you have a pup. Master bedroom was especially beautiful and spacious. The connected dining room, living room, and kitchen made it great for a large group to be in the same space while doing different things. Location was also great: Monte Rio is a very cute quiet little town and close to a lot of other great little towns (Jenner, Guerneville, Sebastopol, etc.) One note would be to bring paper towels, as none were provided, and extra toilet paper as well as beach towels for the hot tub. Highly recommend.

Lara February 2019
A PERFECT place for a big group to relax and cozy up. excellent hot tub, and plenty of hot water in the showers. lots of kitchen tools, coffee maker, knives, cutting board and reusable grocery bags available to use. Would definitely come back!

Vladislav February 2019
Excellent location 300 feet from the Russian river, artistic and quaint, exactly as described, thoughtful touches, spacious, and very nature orientated. Would definitely stay again!

Paige January 2019
Excellent place for a getaway for my group of ten friends. A fire was burning when we entered which was a really nice touch. The space was clean and extremely cozy. Highly recommend this place!

Katrinna January 2019
Perfect house for a ladies weekend – very close to great hikes, the ocean and good food! Would definitely book again

Christina January 2019
This is a hidden gem! Very nice place for a group of people, cosy, clean, full of amenities, great location! Our host was amazing!

Peter January 2019
Great wine country getaway! Great house for a family getaway or a few couples. The main common space is light, airy, and comfortable for hanging out. The location in Monte Rio provides a good starting point to visit many of the great vineyards in the Russian River Valley area.

Alejandra January 2019
Our family needed a quiet getaway and this was totally it. The house is very spacious and cozy. A little cold in the winter but the wood stoves were awesome to use. The house was completely stocked with just about everything we needed. Definitely would book again.

Noah December 2018
The Artisan House exceeded our expectations. We really couldn't have been happier with our experience. The host communication, comfort, size, location, and value were all excellent. The natural light in all the rooms was lovely. The upper bedrooms also had beautiful views with ample natural light. In particular, the master bedroom was huge with a lovely clawfoot tub and a generous seating area. We hope to return one day.

Paul December 2018
This house was perfect for our group of 10 adults and a dog. So much space and comfort, and a fabulous open kitchen for cooking and socializing. In particular, I loved the master suite. Highly recommended!

Ashley December 2018
Artisan house was wonderful. I hosted my husbands birthday with 3 other couples. We each had our own comfy, private room. House was just a 10 min drive into downtown Guernevile. Thanks!

Lucy November 2018
Wonderful house in a great location, fun to stay in.

Maria November 2018
The Artisan House is an oasis! If you are looking for a place to take a group of friends, or your extended family--look no further. Nestled in the Redwoods, with the tiny town of Monte Rio at your doorstep, you can stay inside and enjoy the beauty of this warm and inviting home, or you can walk to town, hike in the redwood forests, or go to the river or ocean. The interior of the house is spacious, rustic, and charming. With majestic timbers and windows galore, you are in a craftsman style lodge that has old world beauty and modern conveniences. There is a well stocked kitchen in the heart of the home. There was a fire in a gas stove that was going when we arrived, providing ambiance and warmth. There are two more wood-burning stoves, and other forms of heat throughout the house. The deck in the picturesque backyard provides almost limitless space for you to enjoy indoor-outdoor living. We also enjoyed the beautiful second story, with spacious and beautiful bedrooms, and the loft--the crowning jewel of this abode. The attached granny unit provides space for those who might desire a little more privacy from the crowd, but is exceedingly accessible. It is also attractive and more than functional. The things that are available for renters are so thoughtful. Although we did not have children with us, there were items families might struggle to bring if they are blessed with little ones. I would ask River Getaway's for anything you might need. They were always available, and responded immediately to our questions and needs!

Ant November 2018
Wonderful location and beautiful big house! Thanks for an amazing stay

Emily October 2018
The space here is amazing! The kitchen is big and open enough for people to cook meals together, the deck is a tranquil place to relax, and the wood-burning fireplaces make all that space feel warm and cozy. Our group of 10 adults was more than comfortable, and this was an excellent base for our weekend in Russian River.

Andie September 2018
The Artisan House was great for our group of 10 adults. The huge fenced in back yard in addition to the large deck is great for dogs. It wasn't super clear on the description, but in the MAIN unit, there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs. One of the bedrooms is up a short staircase and is open (read: no door). The Master Bedroom is huge with its own bathroom and bathtub. There's also a powder room/half bathroom on the ground level. What they refer to as the "Granny Unit" is a separate unit next door with 2 bedrooms (2nd bedroom has an additional twin bed up a ladder). Both have access to the back yard as well as their own living room/kitchen. All around a great place with lots of space even for a big group. Kitchen had everything we needed. Could use extra towels specifically for the beach or the tub. Would definitely recommend this place to any large groups!

Karen September 2018
The place is very very spacious. There are lots of wood stoves and Space heaters. But it’s a chilly drafty place. Location is easy walking to monte rio.

Courtney September 2018
Truly staying on Bohemian theme, this home is an absolute wonder. We adored the rustic style and could especially appreciate the wood craftsmanship. Large enough to easily fit ten people, both in the common areas and bedrooms. We stayed in the master bedroom, which coins its own bathroom, with a clawfoot tub and a separate balcony. The outside patio is wonderful and the backyard continues to sprawl around you with greenery. They even have a hot tub! I really can't say enough. As a group, we are very easy going (MidWestern'ers), but had some minor inconveniences. The biggest being available towels...most of us had to share, instead of having a fresh one per person. Simple fix, though! Secondly, we found animal excrement in the dining room that had been there before we had and is a bit off putting to have to deal with that ourselves. Third, on the last day, we had to deal with very septic smelling bathrooms...but I'm not sure anything could of been done about that. Lastly, some of the dishes had food caked on from the people who stayed last-pretty unappetizing. Fairly minor, like I said. Although the cleaning wasn't 100% satisfactory, we would absolutely stay here again!

Response from Russian River Getaways September 2018
Thank you for your feedback Courtney, we really appreciate it. We will look into the issues you had during your stay. We are happy you enjoyed your stay at this home and we hope you come back to visit again! ~Maile

Nadia September 2018
Beautiful home, great for groups. walking distance to the river running through Monte Rio. it was very relaxing to enjoy the hot tub and look up at the stars in the evening. I would recommend bringing extra spices, cooking tools, and general kitchen supplies as there are some supplies to use, but options were limited. Overall, my group loved the house and I would come back! Our dogs also enjoyed the back yard and deck to run around.

Caroline August 2018
This is a great house for a group to enjoy being near the Russian River and the redwoods. The porch and outdoor table are wonderful for group dinners. The neighborhood is quiet and charming. We loved our stay!

Jessica August 2018
This house was beautiful - it's perfect for a couple families of a Russian River getaway for a group of people. The main house was just gorgeous with a lovely deck, and the in-law was conveniently located and really useful with it's second kitchen! The location itself is so perfect - only a few minutes walk to either Bartlett's market, Monte Rio beach, and some great food and drink at Highland Dell Lodge! Lovely deck, with hot tub and pretty-well stocked kitchen. It's not going to be crisp-linen sheets, or pristine details, but it does have an amazing location, plentiful rooms, comfortable living areas and very responsive hosts.

Devin July 2018
Beautiful, spacious house with lovely deck and ideal location if you're looking to head to one of the nearby beaches. Rustic cabin feel with high ceilings and classic wooden flooring. A great stay!

Rob July 2018
Nice property, rustic feel in the woods by the river. Great location, flexible layout. Unique but not luxurious.

Jonathan June 2018
nice spot that is good for groups

Rachel May 2018
The layout worked well for our two families! The location is great — walk to the river!

Whitney May 2018
Spacious and lovely are the words to describe the artisan house. The kitchen is a great big room for many people to cook and hang out. Having a dishwasher & a grill was clutch for our group. Tons of sleeping rooms—perfect for our group of 7, we never felt cramped. Oh and the hot tub! So fantastic after a long day. I hope to one day return. Thank you!

Jo May 2018
Great place for a group of 9-10. Lots of room to spread out; great kitchen space and the deck with hot tub is not to be missed! A little drive to get to our desired wineries but the drives were very pretty. Due to chilly weather we did not get out to enjoy the river nearby but would be a great spot in summer!

Lauren April 2018
Amazing private house, location and weekend. You can easily walk down to the river beach, the house itself is large and stunning and situated in the forest across from the river. I wish some of the furniture was a bit more updated but it's a minor complaint. The space is large, full of light and easily accommodated our large group. There's even a small shop nearby to walk to if you need anything. We had a lovely time and will definitely be back!

Coline April 2018
We had the most perfect weekend at the ARTISAN HOUSE! If you're looking for a unique, charming, well-equipped, and cozy place for quality time by the river, this is your destination. We loved the large wooden deck, the great stove, the fully-equipped kitchen with huge diner table, the 5 mins walk to the river.... The 9 of us had a memorable time, and will most definitely be back!

Kaylyn March 2018
This place was perfect for our girls getaway this last weekend. River Getaways was so helpful and quick to respond. Justin made our check in super easy and answered our questions. The house is such a great size. Lots of space and the back deck with the hot tub was a plus! It does get a little cold in the house, as there's not a ton of light that comes in the main living area, but the little space heaters and the fireplace help a ton!

Nik March 2018
Great place to stay! Very clean place!About 1/2 hour drive to Healdsburg. Lots of rustic charm.

Jesse February 2018
A great place with solid amenities 5 minutes from Guerneville. Pros: * large kitchen well positioned for entertaining * comfortable beds and great showers * incredible back deck with hot tub Cons: * we went in the winter and at times it was hard to keep the place warm. Not impossible but needed some space heaters in key places. Overall a perfect place to connect with friends and enjoy the country!

Response from Russian River Getaways February 2018
Thanks for the review, Jesse! We're super glad you enjoyed Artisan House and hope you'll be back - maybe in warmer weather! -Rachel

Carl February 2018
This was a quiet, beautiful space with a lot of natural light. Lots of sleeping and showering options - worked out great for 9 adults. A 3 minute walk from a small grocery store was a big plus!

Rob January 2018
This is an exceptionally charming, spacious, and beautiful home surrounded by trees. It's a perfect escape from an urban life.

Alexandra January 2018
Beautiful house with spacious common areas that were perfect for our group. Very unique and truly artistic - it is clear that a lot of love has been put into this home.

Alex January 2018
River Getaways is an amazing place to stay along the Russian River. It’s close to some great hikes along the river and the coast and striking distance to some great restaurants. Our group had a great time relaxing near the fireplace and in the hot tub. Would highly recommend staying here!

Zachary December 2017
Beautiful venue in a quiet corner of CA; cozy house with tons of character. In the winter (early Dec), the surrounding area is very sleepy, should plan to provide own entertainment. Fortunately, this property is well suited for that. The hosts were extremely responsive, accommodating and polite- top marks there for sure.

Jennifer December 2017
This was an incredible place for our friendsgiving. The open floorplan of the main floor was wonderful, and it feels so much more like a home than a clinical rental. The fireplaces are magical and the deck & backyard are so wonderful. The architecture is just beautiful and adds so much to the experience. The kitchen has a variety of cookware and there's even a fantastic speaker system. I'd definitely return!

Mira November 2017
beautiful and spacious home. we loved cooking together and hot tubbing in the rain! really cold in the winter months and the space heaters were not all functioning. washing machine was broken too. bring some extra layers and extra blankets as there are very few big blankets and comforters that are available. beautiful surroundings! Response from Russian River Getaways November 2017
Thanks for the review Mira! Please know that you can call us if things are not working, and we will do our best to get them fixed for you. -Rachel

Melissa November 2017
This house is the absolute best for a retreat or secluded getaway. Lots of room, 6 comfortable beds, beautiful deck and hot tub. Fully stocked kitchenware. Lots of bathrooms. Beautiful wood. Would definitely go back.

Alice September 2017
A great house for a Russian river getaway. This house has a lot of space to hang out. Nothing luxurious, but the house has plenty of space for everyone, and the living space can fit everyone together for a good game night. The separate granny unit was good for friends with kids. They allow pets which is a great plus. We used the kitchen a lot, and everything worked out great. Communication was smooth. Overall a good value for a quick weekend get away.

Crystal August 2017
The place is large and beautiful. We enjoyed being able to take a short walk to monte rio beach. This was a fantastic place for our family which included kids, and dogs.

Aaron August 2017
We had six of us out for a meditation retreat and river float. This place was so centrally located, walkable to the river, and so spacious. Everyone had their own rooms with bathroom access, and the place was super clean. It seems like there are so many little nooks to get lost in and the feel of the cabin was rustic yet had everything we needed. We enjoyed the expansive deck and the hot tub as well. Tip: Everything you need to know is in the manual in the kitchen! I hope to be back someday soon.

Sara August 2017
Beautiful, scenic area. Close walking distance to a great store and about a 5 min walk to Russian River beach and kayak rental. Home was lovely and much larger than we expected. Great for large groups - everyone had their own room!

Cate May 2017
The photos don't do this lovely, tasteful home justice! It fit our big group with room to spare, and we loved that the attached grandma unit let some of our family have a little more privacy. It was also so great that there was a Pack n Play we could use. And the deck! If only it had been warmer, we would have eaten all our meals out there and then walked the short walk to the beach at the river. Instead we played some fun, kitschy mini golf! I hope we get to come back to this lovely retreat.

Angela April 2017
The house was spacious and we enjoyed our stay. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms for everyone. We wished the weather was nice enough to spend more time on the deck and use the hot tub, but could imagine a great time in the outdoor space! Guerneville and Monte Rio are a beautiful weekend vacation getaway, and you're very close to the wineries and the coast.

Peter April 2017
This is a great spot and will look forward to the next visit here again soon!

Tina April 2017
We celebrated my partner's birthday with a group of friends. The house is amazing! It is large enough to accommodate ten people comfortably. We loved having the hot tub and enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. The folks at Russian River Getaways answered all of my questions in a timely manner. When I called them to ask more questions, they were incredibly patient, kind, and humorous.

Kristina March 2017
Was a wonderful location and beautiful house! A great weekend getaway!

Jennifer March 2017
We had a great time staying at the Artisan House - it was the perfect site for our annual women's retreat. The 3 wood burning stoves kept us cozy and warm. We enjoyed gathering at the large dining table for meals and activities. The hardwood floors were a good surface for those who wanted to do yoga. The house is very close to the small but well-stocked market in Monte Rio - a short walk to pick up supplies that may have been forgotten. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

Connie February 2017
Really loved our stay at the Artisan House! Perfect for a group of friends to getaway during the winter months. The kitchen was well-stocked for the big feast that we made and the house was spacious enough for everyone to have places to relax, read, or hang out. It was walking distance to anything in the town of Monte Rio and a short drive to the ocean, hiking, wine tasting, or Guerneville. The design of the house was beautiful, the fireplaces cozy, and the rooms spacious. We'll definitely come back on our next trip to the Russin River!

Joe February 2017
Super nice great room / kitchen area. Was a great fit for 4 young/small families. The secondary in-law unit was a little funkier than we expected. Main bedrooms were pretty nice though.

Laura January 2017
The Artisan House is a work of beauty. Its overall look is beautiful. It's very well located in the heart of Monte Rio, walkable distance from the river and 15 minutes drive from the ocean. The main room is very spacious and cosy, the kitchen is well equipped, and the dining area is great to share a meal with a big group. Perfect for a friends' getaway. However, you have to be willing to compromise if you go there in the winter... the house is not easy to heat and they were 2 leaks in the bedrooms. With the heavy rain, it was not very confortable to sleep under a dripping ceiling... The River Getaways team was responsive and stopped by to take pictures of the leaks and offer to give us more sheets and pillows which was nice. I'll come back but during the summer ;)

Marie January 2017
The Artisan house is very nice, rustic and well-located. It is 10min from Guerneville, right next to the river beach in Monte Rio and about 15min from the ocean, which was perfect for us. It is mostly a SUMMER house though, since the electric heaters (and gas/fire stoves) were not so great/intuitive and the insulation of the whole house is not perfect, but we were outside a lot so it ended up being a lovely stay! We're used to old houses, so overall it was fun to be there. The description is very accurate and the wood inside makes this house really special and charming. The rental company (River gateways, I think) was also responsive, we didn't get to meet anyone as we were out when they came, but it would have been nice to have an agent there for us when we arrived to explain everything. The house is HUGE and it took us some time to figure out everything on our own. I called a couple of times to let them know that a few bulbs were out and that the garbage had not been emptied by previous tenants and they came that same day. They were also some ants in the kitchen/bathrooms, nothing bad, but we had to be careful not to leave anything on the counters. The hot tub was a GREAT addition and I'd love to go back to this house during the summer as we LOVE this area. Overall, it was a great relaxing experience and we were very comfortable and happy to be together in such a big space.

Chelsea December 2016
This is a great home for a relaxing trip outside of the city. Close to state parks for hiking, and wineries. The house has 5 double beds, and in one of the rooms there is a single bed in a loft. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, perfect for cooking a big meal for everyone. It was quite cold the weekend we visited, but the wood-fired stove made it nice and cozy inside. good value

Samantha December 2016
This place was the perfect spot for our women's retreat! It was cozy but spacious, the hot tub was an incredible perk. The house feels like a really big cabin, and was super comfortable and beautiful.

Harry November 2016
If you're looking for a place to get away from the stresses of daily life, where you can commune with nature and others in your party, this should be your destination. The lodge-like setting was perfect for large group dynamics, but also worked for us to get into smaller groups for games (and for the kids to engage with each other). There were plenty of living amenities provided and having two kitchens worked really well for fixing a holiday meal for a large group. Everybody got the right mixture of activity and rest. The location is unique and interesting. When the description cites proximity to the river, they mean it! We walked to the river park each day, tried a little fishing, and went to the town store frequently on foot. The Artisan House is close enough to the coast that we made a day trip (actually a morning trip) and drove up the PCH a good distance, enjoying the view.

Brooke November 2016
This was an extremely easy booking experience. The house was great, big, beautiful, and spacious. Very close to Monte Rio town, and beach.

Timothy October 2016
I put my family up here for my wedding so that they were close to the reception hall. They had a wonderful time, thought the house was beautiful, it was in a perfect location for the Monte Rio/Russian River area, and they loved the layout. They only mentioned that it was odd not t receive soap or cleaning items for the showers. Other than that, they thought the Artisan walk was really quite perfect.

Kari October 2016
The house was charming and unique! The separate house shared a wall with the main house, and the closeness was very convenient - I was expecting them to be farther away and was very pleasantly surprised! The multi-level was perfect for my large group - enough privacy and separate spaces without feeling too separated as you might in a hotel. The area and views were picturesque and made for a very enjoyable weekend.

Aneesa October 2016
Location was nice and an easy walk to the beach in the river. Outdoor area is great for BBQ and the hot tub was a nice bonus as there were cold nights.

Michael August 2016
We enjoyed our stay at Artisan house. The house itself is beautiful, and has a great open kitchen/living/dining room that was perfect for the large group we had. The sunny deck and backyard were also lovely to spend time in. It's a very short walk to the river or to the center of monte rio for coffee or groceries. A very charming and convenient place.

Keith August 2016
We had a great time staying at this amazing house. It fit the 8 of us perfectly. The kitchen was very well appointed. The house is within walking distance of Monte Rio and the beach. The hot tub was good size, we all enjoyed our evening soaks. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a vacation spot on the Russian River.

Brooke August 2016
This property was just as lovely as the photos depicted. The fenced backyard was awesome for our dogs as it was secure and gave them a ton to explore. Management was quick to respond when we called about the deck lighting being out. We will absolutely be back!

Stephanie July 2016
Everything was as pictured. I had a small party of people - 7 in total, and the home was plenty big. Huge, in fact. We most enjoyed the enormous deck and open living/kitchen area. Also, the convenience of the location was great -- just a short walk to the river and grocery store. Will definitely come back, and this time with a larger party to fill the space.

Jodi June 2016
Such a great visit. We had to make a last-minute switch for our weekend, and we were lucky to get this place. Communication was quick, easy and friendly. House is outstanding. We loved the easy walk to the river and the way it felt private amidst other homes.

Ann April 2016
The house was large enough to accommodate ten of us, for our weekend work retreat, yet very warm and cozy. All of us loved staying here. All things were as described and beautiful and spacious and comfortable. We walked to Russian River in late afternoon which was so very nice.

Thomas February 2016
We had a wonderful time and felt very welcome at this amazing place. It feels like a very cozy yet extremely spacious cabin right by the Russian River, surrounded by amazing trees and with true fireplace charm that makes you feel truly connected with nature.

Mitchell November 2015
The house was great. There is plenty of room for a large group. It's only a block to the river and town of Monte Rio. We enjoyed our stay and will be back in the summer.

Rachel November 2020
Wonderful place! Extremely clean and beautiful! Great for a family trip.
