Dog Friendly/ Internet / Spa / Walk to Beach
Pine Ridge Retreat is nestled in the trees above the communal Summer Home Park beach on the Russian River in Forestville. A five minute walk downhill brings you riverside with the SHP Lodge (with game room and a restaurant/bar with outside deck over the river), Clubhouse, Amphitheatre, beach and boat usage rights. As a renter of Pine Ridge Retreat, you’ll have access to all the seasonal (Memorial Day through Labor Day) Summer Home Park activities and amenities, as well as those of the less busy and quieter Highcroft beach and playground a five minutes further walk (or available by car with parking available with provided permit displayed on dash). A canoe is provided through Labor Day Weekend.
Pine Ridge Retreat is a serene, spacious, and sunny home with top of the hill, end of the road privacy. It has multiple levels, three decks, many windows with panoramic views of the forest as well as a large patio with seating, dining, BBQ and hot tub. The upstairs has the spacious master bedroom, open floor plan kitchen dining and family rooms, as well as a large living room with fireplace (firewood included) and a redwood cathedral ceiling. Downstairs are two more bedrooms, one with a desk and doors to a small side deck, and a media room with Cable TV. In the media room, are two single beds. The living room with the fireplace alone comprised the original cabin built at the turn of the 20th century. Now, the home has all the modern conveniences: propane central heating, electricity backed by an automatic generator, two full baths and laundry, plenty of parking, sauna and indoor spa tub as well as outdoor hot tub. It is comfortable living all year round. The cell phone signal is remarkable on top of the hill, and the home is equipped with Cable TV, wifi internet and unlimited long distance phone service.
Though the owner also owns the occupied cottage next door with its own garage, deck and parking, the main house is sheltered from view with privacy fencing and beautiful landscaping. Your dog(s) will love the secure yard just for them, accessible from the main house downstairs and off the upper patio. Though dogs are not allowed during the summer on the SHP beach, they are very welcome on leash at Highcroft before 11 am and after 5 pm. Guests and their pets can access fabulous ridge top hiking trails from the back yard which wind for miles through the untouched oak, redwood and pine forest acreage owned by SHP, Highcroft and Odd Fellows Park.
A Note about the Location:
Summerhome Park Road is a narrow, one-lane country road - you may need to pull over for oncoming traffic. It is, at times, steep with sharp turns, and the road is paved but not necessarily smooth. Additionally, the surrounding side streets are narrow and steep with little to no street parking or shoulder.
BED SIZES: Master Bedroom: Queen Bed, Second Bedroom: Queen Bed, Third Bedroom: Queen Bed, Media Room: two single beds
HEAT SOURCE: Central Heat, Fireplace
ROAD ACCESS and PARKING: The main road to Summerhome Park and the neighborhood road to Pine Ridge Retreat are steep, winding, narrow and single-lane. Individuals unaccoustemed to the roads in this part of the Russian River may want to contact our office for more information prior to reserving.
There is parking for a maximum of 3 cars.
LOCATION:Pine Ridge Retreat is located in the Summerhome Park community where Memorial Day through Labor Day guests can enjoy two large beaches, lodge, snack bar and arcade, movies, art projects and other activities offered by the homeowners' association.
For more information, visit the Summerhome Park website.
NOISE and OCCUPANCY: The maximum occupancy is 7 people. No more than 7 people may make use of the property at any time, including daytime visitors. Pine Ridge Retreat is in a quiet neighborhood. While the house has visual privacy, sound carries along the hillside and disrupts the neighbors. Quiet hours are between 10pm and 8am. We politely request that you do not rent Pine Ridge Retreat if you feel you are unable to stay within the occupancy or quiet hours requirements.
CANOE: The canoe is kept locked up at Highcroft Beach mid-June through Labor Day Weekend. Information on locating and using the canoe is provided in the home. The Highcroft Association removes the boat lock area after Labor Day. Pine Ridge's canoe is removed from the beach at that time.
