“Good place for a large family gathering”
We stayed at Culture Blend for a 4-day holiday weekend. It was a great place for 14 people from 4 families (including 4 teens) to spread out, play games, sit in the hot tub, go wine tasting or shopping, visit the local brewery, etc. Several of us even went sky diving in Cloverdale. In other words, there was something for everyone, and we all left happy. Rr Vacation Homes was responsive and helpful, letting us check in early and sending someone to clean the hot tub. The only knocks: the house is pretty close to River Rd and a car wash, so there is a fair bit of noise. It's also laid out a little oddly, so you have to go outside to get to the downstairs game room. All in all, though, these were minor issues and the house was a very good venue for long weekend with a family full of people who have diverse interests.
“Great house, great location”
Culture Blend was perfect for our reunion of 8 college friends 34 years after graduation. The location within walking/short driving distance of town and next to the Brew Pub made life easy, and the man cave downstairs outfitted with many gaming tables made it the perfect hang out spot.
With four couples, Culture Blend offered plenty of space for us to eat and socialize together as well as to have some private time. We enjoyed the rec room in the basement--some of us hadn't played ping pong or pool in many years. The location was perfect for our wine tasting adventures as well as a drive up the coast. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Response from the manager Hi! Thanks for sharing!!! The newly remodeled rec room is awesome at Culture Blend!!! A great hang out spot if it's raining too...I hope we'll see you again! Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Wonderful place for a group getaway.”
What a terrific find. The house is a very affordable getaway if you're going with a group of people. Lovely house, great balconies, plenty of water gear for floating on the river. There's even a whole game room downstairs that we didn't even get to. It is next to a car wash, which is unfortunate, but otherwise the location is great (steps away from the water, 5 minute walk to local brewery, not far from little downtown or wineries). It sleeps a lot, but realize that some of the fold-out beds are in the main room near the door, so you'll want to have some earplugs if others are up & about before you. I definitely hope to come back for a group getaway!
Response from the manager Hi! We're super glad you and your group had a great time! Culture Blend is very well located for all these activities... Or staying in. Either way, it's a great place for a big family or group of friends to come together. And, if you're a smaller group, you can spread out and have more privacy. Thanks for sharing!!! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
The house was awesome & meant for visiting & partying! The top has all the bedrooms, a great place to gather and eat, a big balcony to relax & bbq on. It's all very clean! The bottom of the house is meant for fun & partying because it has a bar, pool, foosball, tv, etc and its huge. The rooms are all a decent size w/ bathrooms. The backyard is huge with great shady trees. The rental comes with kayaks & tubes to float down the river. Hot tub is a plus. The riverfront is great, but a bit on a decline. It is literally right next to a bar, which is fun, but the only drawback is that your "private" waterfront area is where all the guests at the bar want to leave their canoes/kayaks & trail through your backyard & get to the bar. Not a huge deal, but it gets obnoxious at times. All in all, it's great for multiple families or a boozy friend getaway. Cheers.
Response from the manager The recreation room is the BEST! It's not that often one sees foosball tables in homes, so it's pretty cool that Culture Blend has that to offer - in addition to the pool table, air hockey, arcade basketball and video games. I'm so sorry to hear about the wayward Pub guests who used the yard as a shortcut. They're not supposed to do that! By law, all beaches along the river are public up to the high water line, but no further than that. And the Pub does have its own riverfront and beach area for its customers, so they shouldn't have needed to use the beach at the home at all. Well, if you ever experience this again, please give the office a call and we'll be happy to set them straight. Sounds like you had an absolute blast! Hope to see you back next summer!

“Beautiful and spacious.”
This place was excellent. Beautiful, spacious, and secluded. The game room is what sold me on this place, but the large backyard and private river access is what made my experience. The only problem I had was that I felt the kitchen was lacking a couple of basic items such as measuring cups and mixing bowls, but the store is a short drive away so it wasn't a big deal. Friends I hadn't seen in years came together here from all over the country to make for an excellent vacation and good memories. The staff of Rrvh was friendly and responsive from start to finish.
Response from the manager Hello - Thank you for sharing a review - glad you had a great time! We wish you'd called about missing items - measuring cups and mixing bowls should always be in the kitchens... We're happy to take care of these items when they pop up! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Great setting for a group and convenient to the river”
We enjoyed our stay very much. The kids had a great time in the beautiful yard and we all enjoyed the river. It was nice to be close to town as well. Overall, we were comfortable in the houses, but we did notice a few things. The pull-out bed in the apartment would be intolerable for an adult. (Fortunately, my kids slept there). Also, Culture Blend seemed slightly less well-stocked than Contente in terms of appliances and utensils. We gave this feedback to the rental agency and they were very responsive, so perhaps these problems have been addressed. Overall, though, it was a great rental house for a group and we'd certainly consider renting again in the future. Thanks for a great stay!
Response from the manager Hello! Thank you for sharing feedback from your stay! We really do appreciate it... And we pass your comments on to the owners of the homes too. With Contente and Culture Blend, we find that kitchen items tend to migrate from one house to the other and back and forth when rented together, so the cleaners try to re-sort everything between guests and get them back to the correct house for the next guests. Sometimes it takes more than one cleaning to get it all sorted! Thank you! I hope we'll see you again! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“River Retreat for the Entire Family”
We loved our time at Culture Blend even though it rained all but 2 days. Our family wanted to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary at Russian River so with our children, grandchildren and my sister's family we decided to try Culture Blend. A few stayed down the street and it worked out just fine. Having the suite available for our use worked out great (for added refrigerator space) and to find a quiet moment (we had 14 people). The home was nicely decorated and had comfortable furniture, The kitchen was perfectly equipped and large enough for several people to work together. The basement is divided into car space and a huge rumpus room that kept everyone busy and having a grand time. My 7 year old granddaughter took one look at the games etc. and said "Grampy this is awesome, just awesome". Also there was a separate room to the side that had stuffed chairs, TV and video games and movies galore. A small Refrigerator was perfect to store drinks. Everyone was happy! We did not use the water toys (inner tubes, boats etc. because of the weather...this place is really set to just come and enjoy. The grounds were beautiful and the walk to the beach was enjoyed by all. Hot tub in perfect spot to enjoy the grounds. The house has a lot of stairs to the front door. Keep this in mind. The only set back was the Car Wash next door, which my husband was not thrilled with...however it did not bother the rest of us. The house is on the main road and traffic is continual, but again it did not disturb us or anything we did. The kids had a dinner celebration at Chief Patrick's in Guerneville for us and the food was great. We highly recommend it. The gang walked to both Guerneville and Rio Nido a few times... not too long of a walk. I certainly would rent Culture Blend again. We have recommended it to several friends already.
Response from the manager Thank you! What a great review! It will certainly help folks decide between houses and know more about Culture Blend! :) Megan Perkins Russian River Vacation Homes
“Wine Country Weekend”
Wonderful house in a perfect setting, very nice and comfortable
“Perfect Headquarters for Your Russian River adventures”
Spacious and well-kept, Culture Blend was the perfect place for our Russian River getaway. Stumptown Brewery is next door, and we managed to float the Russian River from a friend's place up stream, back down to the house. Nicely furnished kitchen and a great deck for brunch if the sun is shining. And if it isn't, there's always the game room!
