Minimum stay varies
Holiday Rental House
Whether you're new to the Russian River or stayed here a hundred times, you will love Racer Five and its modern, yet comfortable, décor and vibe! Delightful new construction and a complete remodel (2014/15) resulted in a home for friends and family to getaway to wine country, play at the river and enjoy each other's company. Racer Five is a very tall three story home with the open gourmet kitchen, living and dining rooms, one bedroom and full bathroom on the upper level. A large deck houses the propane BBQ and outdoor seating for everyone. On the back of the house, facing a small creek, is a smaller deck with café seating for your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine and a book.

A custom made spiral staircase allows guest to travel between the upper and middle levels without stepping outside, but there are exterior stairs as well and a second large deck on the middle level with additional outdoor seating. The remaining four bedrooms, full bathroom and laundry room are on the middle level. The bathroom is off the hallway so there's no need to cut through a bedroom. There's plenty of room to spread out in the house or outside!
A few words about cooking at Racer Five - it's an amazing experience! And building this gourmet kitchen was a labor of love. There are new stainless steel appliances and a professional grade Thermador range with 8 burners, double oven and barbecue/griddle on top. Top notch accessories throughout the kitchen and exceptionally good lighting make this the perfect place to make and share a meal with your best buddies and family.
Kids, well-behaved dogs and adventurous chefs will love the fully fenced yard as well! With a third of an acre of majestic redwoods and new landscaping including a separately fenced veggie garden, you can't go wrong. Pick veggies and herbs to cook during your stay. A tree fort and hammock will keep kiddos occupied while adults fire up the outdoor wood fired pizza oven and adjacent BBQ. There's ample seating by the outdoor grill and adjacent fire pit - don't forget the marshmallows!
Everything you need is within walking distance! Across the historic walking bridge you'll find oodles of restaurants and cute shops (less than half a mile), Johnson's Beach (0.6 mile) with the best river access and sandy beach, and Riverkeeper Park (0.4 mile) featuring native plants and habitat with educational markers. On the south side of the river (same side as the house) you can walk to the Guerneville River Park (.3 mile), Pee Wee Golf (0.2 mile), and a kid's playground (0.3 mile) with tennis and basketball courts.
Light sleepers, folks with kids and dogs should be aware the neighbor has a boisterous group of dogs. They will announce your arrival at the house and other, especially unfamiliar, noises.

When the photos and description said gourmet kitchen, they weren't kidding. More appliances than we even knew what to do with. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans, glasses, silverware, etc. Needed another roll of paper towels, though. The living room isn't large, but we spent...More
