“Boat House Christmas”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2014

We spent the week of Christmas with our son, daughter-in-law, and their two dogs at the Boat House, December 2013. The floor plan is perfect for two couples, with room enough for a third. The fenced deck accessible from the back door allowed us to leave the dogs outside at times, and the big yard and nearby streets made our walks easy and fun. We found all the necessary utensils and dishes in the well equipped kitchen. A great view of the river, nearby access to it, and the setting in a redwood forest add up to a perfect location. Thank you to the owners and to Russian River Vacation Homes for a great stay!

“We loved The Boat House!”

The Boat House is the place to go on the River! It's warm and inviting atmosphere makes for a wonderful stay. It has charming bedroom, awesome decks, and a great play room downstairs for adults and kids! We cant wait to visit again!

“cozy and awsome”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2013

was perfect comfort,had everything needed to enjoy my sons birthday, the weather was good enough for them to play in the beach area.the yard was a little unkept, but everything else was perfect.only thing because it was cold my kids did not go into the basement where they have ping pong because it was freezing in there at all hours of the day maybe a electric heater would be a good idea. although half of us had the flu we still found it very comfy as if we were at home.the rental company was amazing very nice and very helpful.we would love to come by in the summer.

Response from the manager Thank you for sharing! I'm sorry to see you were sick during your vacation, but I'm glad you were still cozy! It's so important when you're trying to get over something and on the road... I know the rec room can be cold, especially in the winter. Because it is below base flood elevation, the county prohibits electrical outlets down low - this makes it extra tricky to heat the space. I'm passing your comment on to the owner though - maybe there's another way! I hope we'll see you again! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes

“Nice house”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the Boat House. It is nice and big. My daughter just loved the Master Bed. The beach is really close by. The kitchen is a bit small. Only one cook at a time, but well stocked.

Response from the manager With the ping-pong table, pool table, sunny yard and tire swing, and the beach so nearby, The Boat House is a great place to stay with kids! Glad yours enjoyed her stay! Lena Hoffman Russian River Vacation Homes

“Family Friendy Rental”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2012

Great place for our family of 5, plenty of room for all. House is well stocked from the kitchen to linens, with plenty games, puzzles, music and outdoor toys.Easy river access. Never needed to turn on TV. Would rent this place again.

Response from the manager Thank you for the review! The Boat House is fantastic for families and friends - we're glad you enjoyed it so much! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes

Stayed 3 nights. Very comfortable and well equipped. Beach was very near - 'as if' on the property itself. It was pretty easy to drag the 2 kayaks to the water, but we passed on trying to lug the much heavier canoe. Traffic noise from the other side of the river was quite audible when outside in the back. The part of the river where the house is, is very calm. Kayaking is best in the morning before the afternoon wind comes through. The spacing for the deck railing posts was very wide on the lower deck - easy for even a large dog or child to go through. I have a large dog (German Shepard) so won't go back to the Boat House, but otherwise would highly recommend the house. On the positive side, the beach was usually deserted, so my dog was able to romp freely. As did I.

Response from the manager For those reading this review who may be concerned about the deck railings, both the upper and lower back decks were replaced in March 2013. The spacing between the slats on the new decks is much narrower than the spacing between slats on the old decks. -Russian River Vacation Homes

Very relaxing and family home to spend time for a short weekend getaway

“Two days was not long enough”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2012

Excellent accomodations, view, canoeing and the tire swing was the topper. The only bad thing was my daughter-in-law beat me like a rug in pingpong.

Response from the manager Hi! You'll just have to come back and even the score... Practice, practice, practice! Sounds like everyone had a great time! Thank you for sharing! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes

“Mom's 70th Birthday Bash”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2011

We had close family stay with us, and a few guest come and go for a night or two. We played at the river, ate in the dinning room, and went for walks in the neighborhood. It was one of the most relaxing weeks we have spent together as a family. The home was perfect!

Response from the manager Hello! Thank you for leaving a review! The Boathouse is a great spot to getaway with, or from, family! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes

“Love the river!”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2011

The Boat House was great! The location was super convenient for both Barb's Race and Full Vineman races. There were supposed to be 2 kayaks, but one had a note posted on it saying, "This one has a leak. It'll be fixed soon," or something like that. When I called the rental office they told me that most rentals only have 1 kayak, and that we also had a canoe, so it wasn't going to be fixed. This was unfortunate, considering it really hindered the water fun we planned on having during the week. Otherwise, it was a fantastic week.

Response from the manager Hi! Thank you for sharing with future guests! And we're super sorry about the boats not being in tip-top shape... I remember your stay and the light-weight canoe kept springing leaks. The repair fellow tried several times and has since recommend replacing it entirely. We generally have a loaner boat for emergencies just like this, but it was at a house where the kayak had just been "misplaced." Usually, we can help set up a boat rental at King's Sport and Tackle as well. I hope we'll see you again! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
