The good news was that the two homes on either side of the Jade House were unoccupied, so we didn't have to worry about disturbing anyone. The bad news is that the construction workers next door weren't particularly concerned about disturbing us. Yes, there was literally jack hammering next door until about 4:30 on Friday. But most of our group didn't arrive until later, so no harm done. On Saturday, the crew was back by 8 a.m. They didn't jackhammer, but did hammer a few times. It would have been nice to be warmed of this, and maybe given a discount.
The location is a matter of taste. I liked being a bit remote, but one of my guests hinted three times that next time we should get a house closer to town so we could walk back and forth. But we had three cars, so it wasn't a big deal to me. Parking can be a challenge, however. Two spots in the driveway, but very few spots on the road.
The house was equipped as advertised. The beds are actually quite comfortable. The refrigerators are small, but there's one upstairs and one downstairs. There are plenty of wine glasses now (which someone else had griped about in their review).
The shower pressure was divine, a true luxury in the middle of a serious drought.
The number of warnings posted about the house and in the contract is a bit off-putting. I felt like we were bound to screw something up. In the end, however, preparing to leave was a breeze. Read more
We're so sorry about the construction. I'm glad you were able to enjoy your stay anyway and hope you'll return when the neighborhood is construction free. -Rachel
I'd definitely go back!

Jade House was really nice! I rented it to celebrate my birthday with my closest friends. We ate, went wine tasting, soaked in the hot tub and skipped rocks on the river. It was the perfect weekend getaway! What made it even better was that I was able to bring my dog and he loved it there too!
There were 2 things that were a bummer though. On the first night the hot tub wasn't working. The people who'd stayed there before us must've turned the temp down and the water was only luke warm. We called the number on the info sheet though and someone came right away to fix it. Still, we were not able to use it that night, but the service was great and I was refunded some money to compensate for that first night! Also, there weren't enough utensils, dishes, and glassware. It was pretty weird since they had all the pots and pans you could imagine, but only 3 wine glasses and 4 coffee cups.
The house is in a cute and quiet neighborhood, just a short drive to Korbel and Porter-Bass vineyards both which I highly recommend for different reasons. Korbel is really pretty and they have a great deli. Also, their reserve wines are way better than the champagne that they are most known for. Porter-Bass is a small family run winery in Guerneville. It's all organic and biodynamic, you need an appointment to have a tasting and it's totally worth it!

Great house - rented both upstairs and downstairs! Needs a canoe! But rental available nearby - great location and beautiful fruit trees! Read more
Thanks for the nice review. We're glad you enjoyed this home so much. We do rent kayaks also through our Concierge and will even deliver them to your door! -Rachel, Russian River Getaways
Amazing house, had a blast.

The Jade house was great! It was beautiful inside and out. Beds were very comfy and the bedding was cozy...a big plus in my eyes. I loved that dogs could come and had there own yard to play in. It was clean and well kept. Would rent again. Read more
And let's not forget the access to the river right off your backyard! It's a great spot and we're so happy you enjoyed your stay. See you again!

I recently organized a cooking contest at Jade House. 5 teams of 2 people. It was an excellent setting with 2 full kitchens and great big room for eating and socializing. Lots of out door space for privacy or group gatherings.

The house is adorable. There is a good amount of room and the deck area is awesome with a great view of the lake behind the property. Watch when you have the windows open in ealy September though- it gets really chilly! The master bathroom has some issues for the tub with water damage and it being rather small. But each bedroom is good size and has nice linens, the kitchen is decently equiped and the couches are comfy in the living room. Careful of garbage cans in the area...they are everywhere and can make backing out of the driveway a challenge at times. It's pretty sweet with the flat screen TV, blu ray player and ipod dock. The house is literally dropped in the middle of the woods and it's an adventure getting out of the neighborhood at times, but the view and ride is beautiful and who can resist getting a chance to see so many stars in the night sky? Read more
We'll check into the water damage, but sadly can't do anything about the size of the tub. Thanks for the heads-up. Also, just to be super clear, it's the Russian River you're seeing from the house, not a lake. -Rachel, General Manager

Amazing house right on the river

We had a great time at this house. It has a 3-tiered deck and a provate walk through to the River. Nice kitchen upstairs and a second kitchen in the smaller unit on the ground floor. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and would definitely book a stay here again. Thanks!
Great weekend getaway house

I went with a group of 10 guys to have a relaxing weekend up in Guerneville, and overall the house was a great place to stay. There is plenty of outdoor space and the beach access was a nice plus. The hot tub shutting off at 10 pm was a bit of a bummer but that seems to be the norm in this neighborhood because of noise restrictions. The only other drawback to this place is that on a hot day it gets pretty unbearable on the top floor, even with all the fans on. The downstairs stays much cooler though! Read more
Just to clarify, the hot tub itself does not shut down at 10pm. It's just the jets that shut off on a timer. This is because, when the jets are on, people talk more loudly to compensate, and this disturbs the neighbors. -Rachel, General Manager

We spent a long weekend at Jade House and all the family loved it. The house itself, the outside grill and dining area..the hot tub... and mostly the beautiful peaceful river right down the path. Hopefully we can repeat the pleasure again. Read more
I'm glad you had a great time at Jade House. We hope you can come back as well. This house now allows dogs, so if you have a pup, you an all come next time. -Rachel, general manager

We had a great time at the Jade house for Memorial day weekend this year. The house was exactly as advertised. The hot tub, bbq and appliances all worked well and the location right on the river was perfect. The furniture is modest but clean and comfortable. The top apartment rooms are nicer than the ones in the downstairs apartment which is a bit basement like but it was still clean and comfortable, not dingy, We loved the town and the little mini golf place a mile or two down the road, we also went to the nearby korbel winery for tastings. We would definitely stay there again. Read more
We're glad you had such a great experience at Jade House. The advantage to those partially sub-grade rooms is that they're generally cooler than the upstairs. Those at Jade House are particularly nice. Please do come back and stay again! -Rachel, general manager
Modern Bungalow nesstled among the trees on the River!

I rented the Jade house for my sister's bachelorette weekend. We had 10 girls and the house was perfect! The upstairs is spacious and open with an amazing view of our own private beach! The house is private and surrounded by trees. The decor was modern with a bungalow feel and it had all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was perfect for relaxing. This place would be perfect for two families as there is a completely separate unit downstairs with two bedrooms and a full kitchen and living room. The neighborhood is far back in a neighborhood outside of downtown Guernville which makes it very quiet and peaceful. I would recommend this house to anyone. We had a blast! Read more
Glad these gals had such a great time! I just have to note that the beach is not private; it's a neighborhood beach. -rkl

Jade house was great for families. It was clean and great location to semi private river access. Only thing lacking was kitchen utensils/cooking ware. The kitchens were not stocked with some items that makes cooking easy. House was located in quiet neighborhood. Loved the hot tub,kayack and tubes for the river.
Perfect for our family!

My extended family has vacationed at the Russian River for four years, and although we've enjoyed every home we've stayed in, we never found one that fully meets our needs...until we found the Jade House this summer!
The home is beautiful, clean, modern, light, with lovely views of the trees and the river. It's one of the few rentals with 5 separate bedrooms...so no one had to sleep on a sofa in the living room! Note that it has two separate living spaces, one upstairs and one downstairs, with separate entrances. (You reach them by taking the stairs on the back deck.) That gave us options for a little privacy and noise control(my nieces could play in the morning without waking the entire household). And 2.5 bathrooms is great for big families. There are lovely outdoor decks (with hot tub), and it's a short easy walk to a small private beach that's safe for young children.
The only thing that would have made our stay more comfortable would have been air conditioning and a canopy to bring to the beach...we happened to have a few 90+ degree days, so on those days it was too hot to be in the house, and too hot to hang out on the beach. (You either had to be in the river, or we considered hanging out at the local air conditioned Safeway. So bring your own beach umbrellas/canopy if you are going during hot weather.) We appreciated how responsive the office staff was -- they kindly rushed over a new can of propane for the bbq when we realized the one there had run out. We definitely plan to make this our annual vacation spot!

We stayed at the Jade House for 3 nights for Sonoma's barrel tasting weekend with a group of 10 friends. This house was beautiful! Plenty of comfortable beds and rooms for all. The common area of the living room, dining room, and kitchen are all in one spot, so there is plenty of space to spend time with your entire group. The outside deck and patio was gorgeous and just enourmous! There was almost too much space!
This is an area where residents live year round, which brings me to my only negative point and the reason why i had to deduct some stars from our overall rating. One of the residents felt we were being a bit noisy on our first night. Whether we were loud or not is subject to debate (only 6 of the 10 were there at the time), but the main issue was that this resident took it upon himself to unexpectedly enter the backyard and deck area uninvited and let us know we were being too loud. Of course we were apologetic and were happy to oblige, but certainly did not appreciate the way he went about informing us of our noise level. What if we had mistook him for an intruder? What if we had children outside playing? I understand that it may have been our fault that he was compelled to enter our yard, but the question is mainly security and the feeling that you have some privacy. That was all lost for our group on the first night, and put a bit of a damper on trip knowing that at any moment, someone could walk in on what we were doing.
I think that the residents, in some way, resent those who come to these homes and stay for this specific weekend. I can't blame them given that Barrel Tasting weekend can certainly create a large influx of people into Sonoma County. Nevertheless, be wary of the noise rules or you may have a visitor. Read more
We're so glad these guests enjoyed this home so much. As for their experience with the neighbor, this is truly unusual for this area. Most neighbors are very welcoming and will call us if the noise at one of our homes is disturbing them. We, in turn, will call to let the guests know. This neighbor was out of line; he has been warned against entering the property again and given our phone number to call instead. He has agreed to call our emergency line if there is any problem in the future. rkl
