A queen-size futon in the sunroom provides a fifth bed if needed. Two decks provide space for barbecue, sun shade and large hot tub.

The main living area on the upper floor is a spacious sunny area with connecting living room, sunroom (family room) and full-size kitchen. The living room has a stone fireplace and a direct supply of firewood through a special built-in wood cupboard. Pets Allowed. Smoking Allowed ONLY Outside on the Decks.

The house is on the hillside behind Jenner which affords incredible views of the river and the ocean. Excellent stargazing can be done from the upper deck (bring binoculars and telescope). The village is somewhat sheltered from ocean breezes, so pleasantly warm weather is the typical climate for most of the year, with occasional sea mists which come up the river.

Castle Crag is a place to relax from the bustle of the cities and freeways, and yet is still within very short driving distance of the finest experiences offered in California. Castle Crag is situated in the quiet and quaint village of Jenner, at the mouth of the Russian River about one hour north of San Francisco.

It has magnificent views of the river valley and the entrance to the ocean. A short walk to the ocean reveals a resplendent wildlife including a seal rookery, pelican, gulls, cormorant, sandpiper, osprey, humming bird, and many more.

Swimming, surfing, sailing, etc. are 15 minutes south at Salmon Creek and Bodega (made famous in the Hitchcock movie,'The Birds, Excellent hiking trails are only minutes away, as well as canoeing and rafting which can be enjoyed on the Russian River nearby. The magnificent Armstrong Redwood Park is 20 minutes along the river. The Sonoma County is known for vineyards, cattle grazing hillsides ( cattle, sheep, horses, and llama), and apple orchards (delicious Gravenstein apples).

Jenner is conveniently situated to visit Sonoma and Napa Valley Wine Country, with the Korbel Champagne vineyard only 30 minutes beautiful drive along the river. Nearby river towns are Duncans Mills, Monte Rio, and Guerneville, and the large city of Santa Rosa is about a 30 minute drive.

There are excellent restaurants all along the river and the coastline between Bodega and Jenner. The magnificent Coast Highway (HW 1) goes north from San Francisco, past Point Reyes, Bodega, Jenner, Fort Ross and up the beautiful coastal ride to Mendocino.
