ABOUT THE PROPERTY
FOREST, RIVER, & FUN AT YOUR DOORSTEP
Lucky Bend Lookout is a beautiful family friendly home on the river within walking distance of downtown Guerneville. It is located in a dense redwood forest on the sunny north side of the Russian River, and was built in 1966 from local prefabricated redwood panels with mid-century modern architectural design. All of the walls and ceilings of the home are made from solid redwood and invoke a feeling of warmth, security, and relaxation. Enormous windows on the north and south ends of the house bring the beauty of the great outdoors in. Barbecue and dine under the ancient redwoods on the large deck with sleek steel railings. You can enjoy scenic river views from the deck, kitchen, dining room, and living room while surrounded by redwood trees, one of which is estimated at over one thousand years old. The smell of the fresh clean air is pervasive and invigorating. A family of osprey make their nest in the large redwood tree and gray fox also has a den on the property and occasionally makes and appearance in the neighborhood.
Throughout the home the architect-designed decor is bright, fresh, and modern and provides a balancing contrast to the warm cabin-like feeling. The entire house has been recently remodeled inside and out and includes cozy radiant floor heat throughout.
LIVING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS
In the living room is a wall mounted 47 inch flat screen internet television which provides unlimited streaming Netflix, HuluPlus, and Pandora radio. The couches pull out into a giant bed which is great for snuggling up with the family to watch movies after a day of playing outside.
The kitchen provides all of your cooking essentials, has all new appliances, stunning marble slab counter tops and marble tile floor. The kitchen is fully equipped for major cooking events and can easily handle your turkey, ham, roast diner preparations. We have lots of big serving dishes that are all coordinated with the decor for an elegant celebration.
Whether you choose to dine inside or on the deck, you will have stunning views of the redwood grove and the Russian River. The dining room can accommodate up to 10 people for those family events and holidays. The deck also has a large dining table and seating for 8 (the photos were taken before the table arrived). A late breakfast on the deck is a fantastic way to start your day.
The 3 bedrooms are tastefully decorated and include beds with luxurious memory foam mattresses and custom window treatments. Two of the bedrooms are identical in size and have queen beds. The third bedroom has a bunk bed (twin over twin) with optional toddler rail and a reading nook. The living room can sleep up to 2 guests on the pull-out couch which has a thick memory foam mattress topper. The cleaning service provides hotel quality linens and towels. In addition, you can request turn down service if you will be arriving late (turn down beds, leave a few lights on and turn on heat)
The cheerful bathroom has a tub with hand held shower and plenty of towel racks so you can dry your shower towels. We also provide beach towels for your river adventures.
FAMILY FRIENDLY AMENITIES
As a family friendly vacation home, we provide all of the bulky baby and child equipment you will need including a pack n' play, high chair, step stool, potty chair, toddler bed rail, baby swing, and stroller. The house is partially childproofed. We recently added 2 swings under the deck, a water table, and a few inside toys. We have created a Google map of kid-friendly activities in the area and one for kid-friendly wineries. Just let us know and we will email you a link.
To enhance your enjoyment of the local attractions we provide beach chairs, a beach umbrella, a picnic basket, and a large cooler. Enjoy the convenience of doing your own laundry with a washer and dryer in the home. In the laundry area you will also find a cruiser bicycle with lock and helmet.
We are committed to reducing our impact on the beautiful environment that we inhabit. During our remodel we added new roof and floor insulation increasing our thermal performance by 224%. We installed high efficiency radiant floors to keep the heat close to the people and installed smart thermostats to further reduce energy waste. Only low-VOC products were used to remodel the house. The deck wood comes from sustainably harvested plantations in the Philippines. The cleaning service uses low-chemical green cleaning methods and we have recycling and compost bins for your use in the kitchen. The new landscaping is all drought-resistant native plants. Feel good about relaxing in comfort.
