Idle Hours, Riverfront Sonoma County Vacation Rental

Sleeps:8 Bedrooms:3 Baths:2.0

Dog Friendly / Internet /  Riverfront/

Idle Hours is a beloved Russian River vacation home. Owned by the same family for generations, it was designed for ease and functionality. The care that goes into maintaining this comfortable, easy-going river retreat is evident in every detail. Tastefully adorned with family keepsakes and perfect river cabin kitsch, Idle Hours has gained every benefit from the recent remodel. Cozy and warm in the winter, relaxing and inviting in the summer--once you get here you will not want to go home!

Once up the flight of front stairs, the entryway opens to a spacious living room with ample comfy seating, high ceilings, attractive accent lighting, Cable TV with DVD player and, at its heart, a large gas fireplace. Through the living room's large open doorway, you'll find a large kitchen and dining room. With various places to hang, this area has a long list of uses: surf the web or get some last-minute work done at the corner desk; listen to tunes on the boom box; lounge or read on the single futon (which can be unfolded to a single bed); eat together, play a board game or a game of cards at the large dining table; or our favorite--sit on a tall stool at the kitchen counter and harass the cook for a snack or glass of wine. (The cook shouldn't mind because he or she are thoroughly enjoying the new, fabulously well-equipped and well-decorated kitchen complete with gas range, fridge with ice maker, dishwasher, large stainless steel sink, more than enough cookware, small appliances and storage space.

Idle Hours has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Doors to 2 of the 3 bedrooms and 1 of the 2 bathrooms are off the far side of the living room. The first bedroom, with a Twin bunk and a Double bed, can accommodate 4 guests. The second bedroom has a Queen bed. The expertly remodeled bathroom has a tub/shower combo. The master bedroom and the second bathroom (with a shower) are tucked away and near each other at the back of the house, down a short hallway off the kitchen. The master bedroom offers a King bed, TV, river views and a door to the back deck. All 3 bedrooms are set up with plenty of wall hooks and casual storage crates for guests to hang towels and stash belongings. All 3 bedrooms (and the living room) have ceiling fans.

The large back deck, accessed from the dining room, has outdoor dining, a gas grill, views of the river and a back set of stairs (with a latching gate) leading down to the riverfront lawn and river. There is enough room to picnic and lounge right on the river on the large river dock*.
A canoe* is left locked at the dock for paddling up and down our lazy river.

*Dock and canoe are seasonal, available mid-June through September, depending on the river dams.
