Erika October 2021
Close to downtown and markets. Great view from patio. Close to wineries too.

Nicole October 2021
Peaceful and quiet! Delightful getaway. House was rocked with absolutely everything we needed. Kitchen was perfect to cook a big meal for family and friends. TV remotes were difficult to figure out but there were detailed instructions for them.

Chris October 2021
Overall it was a very nice stay, the property was clean and comfortable for 5 people and our dog. We really enjoyed the deck and the stars are beautiful in the area at night. It had everything we needed and helped us relax and enjoy a quick weekend getaway. We'll have to come back and visit when the river is high in the spring as well!

Melissa September 2021
Probably one of the best stocked kitchens I have seen. Plenty of plates, glasses, cookware - truly everything you need. Great location and easy access to the river - the river is really low right now but we could still get the kayaks in. Clean and comfortable! Russian River Getaways was very responsive to an issue we had (minor) and got back to us within a few minutes. Just an heads up, Highway 116 is right across the river, so road noise can be heard from the deck - probably unavoidable for any river-front property. We will stay again.

Lokesh July 2021
One of the most well appointed airbnb rentals and the best one we have stayed in Russian River valley. With easy access to the river, the canoes and outdoor showers makes this a perfect summer getaway, one does not have to leave at all, but close to the market if needed. Would love to be back.

Girish July 2021
great location. Right on the Russian River. Huge backyard which is great for the dogs and leads right to the river. The listing is well stocked with a lot of river play-stuff, including games as well kayaks and tubes. This made the river experience so much more special. We liked the outdoors a lot more than the indoors. Nothing wrong with the indoors, but just a bit too much clutter (matter of personal taste). The listing also has a well stocked kitchen (contrary to what the listing said) and bowls/treats for dogs (which is nice). The place also had Sonos systems and TVs in each room, which was convenient to get some music going. The deck is fantastic and I spent a lot of time there. Overall, we had a great experience. Only feedback is that the info on Airbnb page as well as the handbook in the house are out-of-date and need to be updated. This could have helped us from over-packing for our trip.

Billy & Tom June 2021
This place was great for our family of 5 to spend a summer week. Our kids are all under 5 and the backyard and river access being right out the back door is priceless and we really hardly left because we had all that we needed. Kayaks provided relaxing adventure and the kitchen was great to cook in and feed kids. We would happily return to this spot!

Christopher June 2021
House was very clean with a wonderful location. Perfect for a family getaway. Water was very low as the dam was not up for summer so the beach was not as usable as we had hoped. Other than that we couldn’t have asked for more

Tim May 2021
Great space for a family trying to escape the city for a week or long weekend. Right on the river, 5 minute drive from Guerneville and in an incredibly quiet neighborhood. Our daughters (3.5 and 1.5) loved the deck and the massive backyard that has access to the river. Be aware that there are stairs down to one of the bedrooms in case your kiddos aren’t great on stairs. Each room has its own tv with smart device attached so every room can watch cable, Hulu, etc. We would love to stay here again!

Becky April 2021
What a perfect place to gather with family. Location was perfect and relaxing. Kyacks were fun and there was a sandy beach steps away to put the boats in the river. The deck is perfect for lounging and bird watching too! We saw a lot of different pretty birds and two very large not so pretty (lol) vultures or buzzards that landed in the tree overhanging the deck. They checked us out for several mins. The propane outdoor patio/deck heater was the bomb! That thing can throw some heat! Made chilly evenings warm and toasty while hanging out and stargazing. The BBQ and kitchen were all in great working order. Plenty of room for more than one of us to prep food and be in the kitchen together. The dinning table inside was a great size. 8 of us sat comfortably around it to play games. The bed in the master bedroom was super comfy. I dont know about the other beds but I heard no complaints from those who slept in them. Its very peaceful and quiet at night so sleeping with the windows open was no problem. The house was exactly as advertised. No let downs or undisclosed negatives. I can say for those that may have someone in their party who is not good with stairs, this may not be the location for you. Allthough we had no issue with the stairs I can see it could be a bit difficult for some who plan to go down to the river or be in and out of the house a lot. There is a good size set of stairs to enter the home as well as going down to the backyard. There are a few stairs inside the house but nothing most couldnt handle. Overall, We enjoyed our visit completely and would love to visit again!

Gail April 2021
This home is beautifully situated on the Russian River. With a lovely view and easy access to the River, it would be an excellent home for up to six people to rent in warmer weather. The house has a nice open design, great for larger family gatherings. However, deferred maintenance was noted in several areas making it an annoying ordeal. Broken coffee maker, two broken light fixtures, broken shades, broken outside heater on deck. If these things are fixed I would definitely return for a warmer summer vacation.

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2021
These things are fixed, thank you for your patience and feedback, Gail. -Rachel

Laura April 2021
We loved staying at this house ... Great place, great location right on the river, well-appointed kitchen. We'll look for it again our next visit to the area

Nicole April 2021
The deck is awesome, a great spot on the river. We felt like we had our own private beach resort. Comfy beds, heat lamp for stargazing, a whole closet of fun family games and a great well stocked kitchen. A perfect spring break get away with kids!

Olive April 2021
Upon arrival the plant enthusiast in me noticed a plethora of herbs and lemon trees in the front yard. That was already a good sign and after taking a tour of the home, we were extremely happy. The home was clean and inviting; kitchen was spacious and even had a peninsula. Entertainment system was awesome — Sonos subwoofer and sound bar in the living room made movie nights sublime. The outdoor deck had a grill, table, L-shaped sofa and patio heater. We were able to hang out there throughout the day. All in all, fantastic home and we’ve already bookmarked it as somewhere we’d like to return to.

George March 2021
Great place. Amazing yard. 10/10.

Ethan March 2021
Awesome location. Well appointed kitchen. We had a great time! I would recommend staying here with a small group.

Donald March 2021
Beautiful location not too fair from main Guerneville area. Lots of great scenery and easy access. Seamless check-in/check-out and host was very responsive.

Daniro February 2021
Great place

Chantell February 2021
Lucky Bend is a comfortable, cozy find. The kitchen is enormous and extremely well stocked with tools. The gas stove is amazing! Regular coffee maker and Keurig available. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The back deck is large and welcoming. Dogs are welcome, but note: the property is fenced in the front but that fencing is open in the back giving access all the way to the River. Also, for your dog to go out there are numerous steps to go up/down (either to front yard, or from deck to the backyard). This was challenging to my mom whose knees didn’t like going through all those steps to make sure her leashed dog got to the “bathroom”. But for most healthy-kneed people, it shouldn’t be an issue. Overall a nice peaceful weekend in Sonoma. Thanks!

Dave December 2020
We had a great time at the river, beach, and winery over our short stay. The house had everything we could ask for.

Mariela September 2020
It was a great place to do river activities. The river access from the back yard is fantastic and they have a whole assortment of floaters and kayaks to use. Things to consider: the fridge takes long to make anything cold. The oven is difficult to understand and may take some practice. We ended up calling the host which was very helpful.

Alex September 2020
Great location right in the river. Big yard with access to a semi private beach.

Katherine September 2020
Great house for families with kids! Large flat lawn and nice beach access all right there. Great deck for everyone hanging out

Tiffany March 2020
Wonderful weekend getaway. Accommodated 6 adults very well. Loved the backyard

Joseph December 2019
Very good location, though not as serene as the photos indicate. Quick drive to town and Safeway. Nice, large space with a very well-stocked kitchen.

Response from Russian River Getaways December 2019
Thanks for the review and feedback, Joseph. I'm not sure what you mean by "serene," but it's probably worth noting that, as described in the listing, all River homes are located in neighborhoods, so there are neighbors, and none are too far from the main roads that get you where you want to go, so there is always the chance of some road noise, summer and winter (although less in winter, of course). We're glad you enjoyed your stay nonetheless. -Rachel Jim December 2019
Our family really enjoyed our time here. Great location close to town and restaurants but in a quiet neighborhood. Backyard leading to river is great for kids and dogs to play. River is very dog/kid swimming friendly. We would definitely stay here again!

Anthony November 2019
Great location and access to a really pretty, quiet spot on the river. Downtown is a 5-10 min. drive but a bit much to walk. Great responsiveness from River Getaways.

Richard October 2019
Fantastic house. Exactly as advertised. We highly recommend it for a family!

Oksana October 2019
Perfect location with a nice view of Russian River. We stayed there family of 4 and it was perfectly comfy and homie for us! Thank you and we will be back!!!

Brooke September 2019
Amazing house! Our group loved having access to the private beach! Plenty of room for everyone and our dogs. Great touches like having access to the kayaks. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some river fun! We hope to be back in the future. Thank you!

Joshua August 2019
It was an extremely great location with so many activities to do near by while being far enough from it all in case you just want peace and quiet! Having the river literally a few steps away was so great! And the view from the deck was gorgeous. Would love to come back in the future

Zachary July 2019
I can’t recommend this place enough. Having a beach as a backyard was an incredible unique and exciting way to experience the river. I don’t think I can’t rent another place in Guerneville that doesn’t have private beach access like this. We were able to camp out at the river all day and still have the house to easily walk back to for BBQing, cooling down, using the bathroom, grabbing something from the fridge, etc. Speaking of the fridge, the kitchen is large and perfect for group cooking. We all loved our bedrooms. Especially the master which has a great jet bath tub. Check in and out was really easy. Everything about our stay was so easy and relaxing. Highly recommended!

Hitaf July 2019
The place is exactly as in the pictures. Very clean and comfy. River Getaways were very professional in responding and answering our questions. Everything was lovely, clean convenient. The private beach was a plus if you’re looking to have some privacy. Will come back for sure.

Jenny July 2019
One of the best river front properties Guerneville has to offer. We loved the easy access to the river and the private sandy beach was a delight to lay out on. The house was exceptionally clean. The modern kitchen with gas stove made making home made meals easy. We made good use of the gas grill on the deck, and the outdoor heater was a bonus on the chilly nights. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The ceiling fans made the rooms quite cool during the daytime heat. Loved that each room had their own fan/light remotes. Close proximity to town, - about 5-7 minute drive to Safeway in downtown guernville. Overall, quite the memorable house. We would definitely return.

Lindsey July 2019
Lucky Bend is located in a quiet spot along the river and the pictures and description depict the property very well. The house was spacious for six people, clean, and stocked with kitchen amenities. There were convenient little touches such as iPod docs, TVs and trash cans in every bedroom. The host was extremely attentive and quick to respond to our needs. For example, there was not a crockpot at the house and the host was quick to drop off a brand new one for our use per our request. They also dropped off full propane tanks for the grill when the current one went empty. As mentioned, the location is great—close to the grocery store, downtown Guerneville and right on the beach—with a quick walk down the patio stairs to either sit at the picnic bench on the shady grass or float down the river. Great place to cook, relax and enjoy the river.

Carolyn June 2019
Great accommodations; I’d highly recommend and gladly stay there again. We loved the private beach feel and the house was perfect for a family get together with kids. Five stars!

Nicholas June 2019
Great place! Location on the river is amazing. Home is nicely decorated, furnished, and stocked with everything you need. We will be back!

Heidi May 2019
We had a great stay at Lucky Bend. Everything was as described. Great space for two couples and a baby to enjoy.

Jacqueline April 2019
Very clean Airbnb, close to town and the river. Do note you can really hear the traffic from the road during the day. Property right on the river though, and welcoming house. We had a great stay here!

Katy March 2019
A wonderful riverside cabin! Close to downtown Guerneville but still felt secluded and in nature. Wonderful back deck and yard for running around with kids and dogs.

Yinghuan January 2019
Nice place. We enjoyed our stay at Lucky Bend.

Kendall December 2018
Loved this property! It was ideally located, super clean and chock full of every amenity one would possibly need! Kitchen was great to cook in and the furniture so comfy! Hoping to return come summer and get some river time in (view and access are both perfect). Highly recommend this cozy, adorable home!

Serena August 2018
We had a great time at River Getaways house! It was gorgeous and spacious. Optimally located right on the russian river with access to a private dock / beach. The house was also fully loaded with all appliances, kitchenware, board games, towels, beach towels, toiletries, and also a TON of lake gear (tubes, beach chairs, two kayaks) under the house. The instructions were really clear and the key pad access made everything so easy. The kayak locks were rusted when we got there and Justin got back to us quickly when we reached out and had maintenance over within an hour to cut the locks off. He was so responsive and helpful. We had a great time and will definitely be back again!

Breanna July 2018
Very well appointed and well stocked home! Great kitchen stuff, super clean, and it has a ton of puzzles and games to use. The only problems we had were the close proximity to highway 116 - not a huge deal, but sort of a bummer to see and hear cars going by and interrupting the gorgeous view - and the fact that the neighbors were walking through the backyard all the time to get to the beach. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay!

Armen September 2017
We had such a great time spending a long weekend at this house. We enjoyed kayaking on the river or just kicking a soccer ball around in the large back yard. The kitchen is amazing and I want to replicate its design (note to coffee drinkers, there is a coffee grinder if you want to freshly grind your coffee). The location is very convenient for wine tasting in any of the great Sonoma wine country regions (Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, etc.) We rented a large SUV to minimize the number of cars and had no issues parking / accessing the house. Would gladly stay here again next time we make it back to wine country.

Lisa May 2017
Very enjoyable stay! The layout of the house was great. Felt spacious and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. Quiet neighborhood and very easy to get into town. You won't be disappointed.

Ryan February 2017
Great house just a few minutes from town. We were able to enjoy some rare sunshine this winter on the amazing deck our first day there. The house is equipped with plenty of dish ware and cookware. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Wes July 2016
It was fantastic

Camille May 2016
We had a great time at Lucky Bend. The house was just big enough to accommodate us, with a gorgeous and huge backyard. Being able to walk right down to the river was so nice. We had a BBQ on the deck and ate outside, which was so fun. We also took advantage of their inner tube and kayak on the river. The house was stocked nicely with all the kitchen essentials and plenty of games, and we were very comfortable overall.

Hagar April 2021
We had such a great stay - the house is clean, large, provides all the amenities you might need and more. Most important- Russian river in the back yard! Will come back!
