Just Listed! - Papa's Roost is the perfect summer retreat for families. This sweet family home is a sunny, happy and easy place to spend lazy summer days BBQing, swimming and kayaking, playing lawn games and, in the early evenings, hanging around the campfire. Located in Vacation Beach, about 2 miles west of downtown Guerneville, it is a short distance from town, wineries, the coast and Armstrong Woods State Park.
For large family groups that love to spend time outdoors together, we can’t think of a better spot with more amenities to entertain. The front yard is complete with an outdoor structure that covers a wood fired pizza oven, a gas grill and a bar. There are also picnic tables, a fire pit with seating, a sand box and a bocce ball court. The back deck has another gas grill, more picnic tables and stairs leading down to an expansive riverfront lawn. At the end of the yard are stairs leading down to a large dock. The entire yard is fenced both from the street and from the river.
The interior of Papa’s Roost is roomy and functional. The portion of the home open to guests (see unit notes below) consists of a main house with four bedrooms with an adjoining studio, plus a studio loft, making a total 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom, three kitchen vacation rental (the main house and lower studio share an entryway., the loft studio is up a set of exterior stairs).
The suite is the first door off the interior lower entranceway, and consists of a full kitchen, a large room with a queen bed, a bathroom with a shower, and a door leading out to the back deck. Just past the studio, the entranceway opens up into the main house living/dining room. This large room is fully furnished, with plenty of space to lounge, read, eat meals and spend quality time together. The living room has a 36” Flatscreen TV and doors to the back deck.
All the other rooms of the main house are off the living room. The kitchen is the closest to the dining room, and comes fully stocked with everything needed to cook. Next to the kitchen is the “Princess Room,” with a double bed. The only room in house without windows, it is the perfect spot for someone who wants to sleep in. The bathroom is down a hall next to the “Princess Room” and has two separate rooms, one with a toilet and sink and the other with a sink and shower. The other three bedrooms have doorways off the far side of the living area. The first bedroom has a double/twin bunk, the second has a queen bed, and the third has a queen bed (no closet) and a door leading out to the back deck.
The upstairs studio loft is accessed from exterior stairs just the the left of the entrance to the main house. This charming nook has a full kitchen with granite countertops an oak dining table with two chairs, bathroom with shower, and amazing river views. The loft has a queen bed and the living area has a double futon. The owner says this is THE SPOT everyone in her family wants when they come to visit! Very sweet!
