Guests enjoy panoramic views of the Russian River from every room of the house (minus the bathrooms). This sunny, window-studded 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom cabin is a great place to relax and immerse yourself in our laid-back river lifestyle.
Perched high above the river,The Rhondavous is tucked away from the road by a large private fence. There isn’t much to see from the road, but once you open the gate and step inside, the stunning view and charming cabin will simultaneously take your breath away and melt away the stress of the world. The large deck at The Rhondavous has an outdoor dining table, propane barbecue and comfy rocking loveseat. Entrances to all sections of the cabin are accessed from the deck. At the top level (road level), there are two exterior doors opposite each other. The door to the left leads to the main living space, which has an open living area and kitchen. The door to the right opens to a granny unit with a Queen bed and a full bathroom with a shower. Exterior stairs from the main deck take you down to 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (also with showers) and a bonus room with recreation items and a Double futon. From the lower level, gated stairs continue down to the river, which has private deep river access.
A note about the location:
Summerhome Park Road is a narrow, one-lane country road - you may need to pull over for oncoming traffic. It is, at times, steep with sharp turns, and the road is paved but not necessarily smooth. Additionally, the surrounding side streets are narrow and steep with little to no street parking or shoulder.
The Rhondavous is a member of the Summerhome Park community, and has access to two association members-only beaches, lodge, snack bar and arcade, movies, art projects and other activities. The two beaches and all activities are just a short walk from The Rhondavous. The beach shown in the photographs is a lively, family-oriented beach, while the other beach is a quieter less-populated spot. For more information about the Summerhome Park Homeowner's Association visit the Summerhome Park website.
Built back in the Russian River’s initial heyday, this cabin was originally the general store for Summerhome Park residents and river travelers. Canoes could pull up to a dock, send up their order and receive their purchases on a zip line, all without leaving their boat.
