There’s plenty of water behind that dam for swimming, canoeing or kayaking.  Johnson’s Beach is open and jumping.  Tomorrow there is a farmer’s market next to the plaza in town from 3:00 to 7:00 pm and Maria Muldaur singing from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  Remember “Midnight at the Oasis”?


The concert will kick off a summer of fun at the river and is part of a 5 event series called Rockin’ the River.  

The first Friday of every month through the summer one can enjoy a leisurely stroll through town some very nice local art work and, of course, food and wine at the First Friday Art Walk.

If you want to come up and enjoy town, consider booking a room online:

Usually “dog days” refers to the end of summer but not here at the River.  We have 5 cottages where we accept pets at no additional fee.  They are the Apple House, the Tree House, Osprey’s Nest, Robin and Quail.  There are good options for dining with your furry friend.  Garden Grill is one of the most popular, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, well behaved pets are allowed on the deck.    For wine tasting Marimar Estate Winery is pet friendly and actually does Yappy Hour on Tuesdays.  For more activities and especially river and coast walks with your favorite four legged friend check out the latest issue of Sonoma Discoveries for “Days of Dogs and and Water” by Frank Robertson.  You can also walk your dogs on leashes on the roads at Armstrong Woods State Reserve.


Lot’s going on at the River!

How perfectly does that go together.

We have several good music venues too.  Jerry Knight’s River Theatre and Main Street Pizza to name a few host really good entertainment as does the Rio Nido Road House.

Hope to see you at the River.

Book online a two night stay on the weekend of February 11, 2012, order the 2 crab & pasta dinners and proceed with the reservation.  Enter the promo code CRAB and we will pay for the tickets.  Of course, this is based on availability of accommodations and dinners.

Proceeds from the dinner help fund the good work that the Russian River Rotary does for the local schools and senior center.  They fund scholarships for graduating high school seniors, an anti-bullying campaign at the local high school, the Forestville Youth Park and the maintenance of the barbeque and picnic area at the local senior center.

This year the event is at the Shone Farm, which is the Santa Rosa Junior College’s outdoor educational lab for the agriculture and natural resources department.
