Testimonials

We used this rental place to book a lovely cabin on the river for our anniversary ... The cabin was CLEAN inside and out, fresh linens, warm cookies on our arrival, fire wood was chopped, hot tub was warm - it was an all around amazing perfect setting - no I will not give you the name of the cabin as I really don't want to share - but from the quality of the specific cabin we were in I would recommend them for booking on the river. We WILL book with them again.

Thank you for a great escape from the city! We enjoyed every minute of it. No hassle, great customer service and perfect getaway house. We'll definitely be back.

I really enjoyed Hidden Haven and I would love to go back again, so I'm sure I will be renting it again in the future. I really can't express how much I enjoyed the peace and quiet.

Thank you so much for all of your patience and help with securing Ananda for us last weekend. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Please pass along to Sarah that we found her home very welcoming and homey. She has done a marvelous job restoring the property and decorating the house. She should be very pleased with what she has done.

We had a wonderful time at Ananda cottage up in Monte Rio last weekend. We want to send you our warmest thanks for letting us stay at this charming place. Our visiting German friends greatly enjoyed the settings in the California Redwoods on the porch. Have a nice Fall - we will keep the Russian River area in good memories and will try and come back sometime soon!

We sadly left Sanctuaire this morning, and we already miss it. The home was absolutely perfect for us. Thank you again for everything. I have every intention of contacting you again in about 10 months to book another week next year.

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. It was very restful and the cabin had everything that we needed.

We had a wonderful stay at the Riverdale. It was perfect accommodations.

The beds were very comfy, and the hot tub very nice!

I want to thank you for your excellent recommendation to stay at Sanctuaire. The home was lovely and we had an amazing weekend.

My extended family and I had a fabulous weekend at the Stone's Throw Cottage. We loved the coziness of it being tucked up in the trees and the weather was gorgeous on Saturday for enjoying the river. It was just what we were hoping it would be.

The cottage is absolutely charming! I had my hopes, but what a surprise to find them not only met, but in many ways exceeded-- I know we'll have a wonderful time this week.

Sanctuaire was great! we had a blast.

I had a great experience with Russian River Rentals. The only piece of information that I couldn't find was the code to unlock the hot tub's lock. I called after hours on Friday and still received a prompt response from a Russian River Rentals employee, giving me the info and doing so with kindness. It was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend working this company to others and certainly will be seeking out their services again.

Dear lucky owners of beautiful 'Orchard View,' Thank you for sharing so much of the great house & grounds you created and tend. We especially appreciated your invitation to enjoy/pick some of your herbs & flowers! We have no complaints about our stay & hope to return here for more family fun someday.

I've appreciate the warm and kind staff. I was unsure of where the best place to rent a house would be in the Russian River for my family. The staff was very helpful and knowledgable in helping me choose a house that was not just affordable and fit the needs of my family, but was also centrally located to the activities that my partner and I had planned for our family.

It's great working with the team at Russian River Rentals. Obviously the homes say a lot about their owners, but the current team is knowledgable and friendly. The policies are fair and they had great support. Shout outs to Star and Trini for your help and support.

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at Sanctuaire. I haven't stopped talking about it all week. After having to re-plan out original trip, we throughly enjoyed our stay. If anyone ever wants information about staying in your home, please feel free to have them contact me!

Russian River Rentals' staff worked with me to find a great house for a weekend getaway. The process was simple and straightforward. The Green Ridge Retreat was beautiful space. Space to cook, lounge, and soak in the awesome hot tub. Rustic luxury! I was not ready to leave! Highly recommended!

What a beautiful home you shared with my family this past week. We enjoyed the quality time with one another at this magical place. [...] My husband is ready to do the Vineman again next year. We may meet again, Orchard View.

If you are passing it along to the homeowner, then please tell them how gorgeous their place is, and how I really really really love it... I could have stayed there all by myself for a month, catching up on work....(if I had the opportunity to do that). I love the house, the surrounding property, and the walk down to the water is like a fairytale. I loved sitting out on the porch, with a pot of coffee, and some things to read. It was like heaven. The walk down to the water is like a fairy tale.

We had such an AMAZING time in California! Thank you all so much! The weather was beautiful and we felt so relaxed in The Old Goat House. We do hope that we can come for a visit again.

An amazing property with great amenities. The house was beautiful and very peaceful. Its surrounded by trees and in a very quiet area but still close to Guerneville. The living room and deck were great for entertaining friends and the hot tub was nice for relaxing late into the evening. We felt very comfortable and relaxed the entire time. We'll definitely come back!

Kate and I have really enjoyed staying at the Vinyard Cottage. The place is charming and very comfortable. The views are spectacular.

We had a very nice stay at Sanctuaire -- it was the perfect weekend getaway. Thanks again for all your help.

Thank you for the use of the Grand Dame on the River. The house was a perfect place for our family's Christmas.

Our stay at the house was as good as I expected and more...we loved it!

My wife and I have used Russian River Rentals on three different occasions and have always had a wonderful, restful vacation experience. We have stayed at the Seaton Hill House twice and Sanctuaire once. The houses were very clean and comfortable and provided the privacy we desired. Russian River Rentals will always be our first choice.

We will miss the sandy beach below, canoe and kayaks at arms reach, the amazing view from the deck morning-noon-and night. All the French doors, day trips to wineries, and PeeWee Golf.. Fun memories - hope to be back again!! (and, oh yeah, love the warm shower 'outside'!) Thank you! Love....

Russian River rentals helped us find an awesome vacation rental. There were a ton of options and prices. The staff was super responsive to us -- and it was pretty much as simple as booking a hotel for a weekend -- but with a lot more space. We had a great time at the Green Ridge Retreat... really well put together and open and airy, which is a change from some of the other rentals we've tried.

We thoroughly enjoed the cabin.

Great cabins, and great vacation spot!

I just have to tell you that the four of us (and 8 mo. old baby) LOVED Hidden Haven. It suited us and our needs perfectly, which was for R&R and a great kitchen. The kitchen was perfectly equipped for us, and we loved its panoramic view of the woods. I could also hear the river from our bedroom... so nice! We loved the fireplace and jacuzzi, and the sound system with ipod hook-up - we could listen to our favorite music all weekend.

We loved staying at Riverdale! The house is spacious with upstairs & downstairs bedrooms and baths, the place is sun-filled, and you're right on the river. The backyard is maybe the best part -- large and secluded. The view from the deck at sundown is incredible.

A wonderful getaway. We've rented many of their places, Sanctuaire, Stones Throw, Sundance, Pyramid House, Riverdale -- all are comfortable, beautiful places. The location is great for hiking, river swimming/kayaking, wine tasting, and more. Great customer service. Highly recommended.

The rental turned out to be wonderful! We were so happy to find a great house in a super beautiful setting amongst huge redwoods. The house was well cared for, with a large deck that overlooked the river, recently remodeled kitchen, new hot tub, and best of all, a sandy, private beach on the river - exactly what we were looking for. Russian River Rentals took care of all the arrangements without a hitch, and checked in with us to make sure everything was OK with the cabin. I will definitely use them again for our next getaway from the San Francisco fog :-).

We stayed at Sanctuaire in Monte Rio. Very cute two-bedroom cottage with an additional small cottage in the back that included a very comfy day bed. The place was spotlessly clean with nice decor throughout and included a sauna (in the back cottage) and a hot tub. Just a short walk to the river. Kayaks were available to use although we did not take advantage of them. Beautiful garden and patio with a nice mix of sun and shade. The whole place is very private, quiet, and relaxing. People in the neighborhood that we encountered were also very friendly and everyone seemed to wave when we went out to walk our dog. Free wi-fi was a nice bonus as well. We'll use Russian River Rentals again for sure.

We stayed at the Story Book Cabin. This is a lovely little cottage nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. If you are arriving in the evening, you may have trouble finding this little street...luckily I had someone in the car with me who could pay attention to the signs while I watched the road (which is rather dark, as most woodsy roads are). The house was well-stocked with utensils, servingware, wine glasses, towels, and basics (salt, pepper, etc.). I wish we had been able to spend more time there and enjoy the outside chairs while sitting under the trees. It is also close to the river. The process of booking through RRR was also seamless. The office was very friendly and accommodating, and quick to answer our questions.

Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had at Sanctuaire last week. It was the perfect location; our 2 year old could walk to the river!

We had the best time & fell in love with that place. We'll definitely be back. Thank you!

My partner and I used Russian River Rentals to secure Treetop Log Cabin to ring in the New Year and celebrate our five year anniversary. The place was incredible, a cozy placed tucked away not too far from Guerneville, with a hot tub surrounded by redwoods in the back yard. Everything about the process worked exactly as expected - from key pick-up, directions to the house, and finding it to be exactly as expected in terms of amenities and overall coziness.

I've arrived safely and the cottage seems absolutely perfect! I've already got the sauna warming up.

Just got home from our wonderful weekend at Hidden Haven. The place was better than anticipated and we had a very, very relaxing time. Thanks for the suggestion and helping us with last minute arrangements. It was exactly what we needed to recharge. And it was so nice to be able to go on vacation with our dog for a change. Thanks again and hope to rent from you again soon.

Thanks again for all of your help setting up the rental of River Gem. We had a great time and it is a great property! It was perfect for us.

We stayed at Willowhaven in Monte Rio, and the setting was pristine. It felt like we were in our own little pocket of Redwoods. Unfortunately one of the main features of this house [hot tub] was not working at the time we arrived. After contacting Russian River Rentals with the news they acted quickly and tried to get us into a nearby location with a working hot tub. Now that's what I call excellent customer service! Regardless we had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Willowhaven and will not hesitate to use the services of Russian River Rentals again. Special thanks to Trini! You rock!

We just returned from one of the most relaxing weekends ever. The house we rented was perfect. It was clean, very well maintained, comfortable and very true to the photos on the site. The views from all the rooms were spectacular. We could not have been more pleased. Russian River Rentals was great to work with, wonderful customer service and very helpful. We will be calling again to come back! Thank you.

I have been using Russian River Rentals for the past year and have really enjoyed working with them. They have always been very professional. Our last rental was at Aunt Ginny's River View. If you want peace and quite this is the place.

Fantastic place! Thanks again for a great weekend! We'll definitely be back.

We will be back soon. Everyone loved the experience and the house was everything that we hoped that it would be. Excellent service. Thank you.

Thanks for ... all of your help with booking such a nice place for our family vacation. We had a really nice time and the location was perfect...

My partner and I rented a house from Russian River this past weekend for our 10-year anniversary. It was wonderful! The house was beautiful - right on the water. The booking staff are fabulous and made the whole process so incredibly easy, especially as we were so last minute with our plans. It was a joy to work with Russian River Rentals and I'll be using them again, and only them, the next time we come up the the Russian River.
