Artist View has a new addition that we are excited to announce. Our new private zen spa awaits you on our recently renovated master bedroom deck. Situated in the tree line, under ocean skies with views of the spectacular Jenner valley hillside, bask in the warmth of our tub and wash away your cares in this peaceful relaxing setting.
We have been busy creating a retreat that caters to our guests imaginations, with beautiful French style country gardens, newly appointed baths, soaking tubs, reading rooms, great room with grand piano, private decks with river views, outdoor gas grille and a kitchen well equipped for your culinary pleasure.
Artists View is your base to come home to after the many exciting adventures the Russian River and Sonoma Coast have to offer. The latest news for outdoor enthusiasts is the acquisition of the Jenner Headlands, a 5,630 acre park of pristine hiking trails overlooking the rugged Pacific Ocean. This newly acquired land by the Sonoma Land Trust promises to be one of the most scenic and beautiful hikes on the coast. There are 3 habitat types, 8 watersheds, 8-1/2 miles of streams, 3,100 acres of redwood and Douglas fir forest, 1,500 acres of rare coastal prairie and numerous threatened and endangered species, including the northern spotted owl, steel head trout, Coho salmon, peregrine falcon, red tree vole and osprey.

For grape lovers, the wineries on the Russian River are pure gems that offer a laid back and personal tasting experience, unlike the frantic and crowded hustle of the Napa Valley. Take this fun video trip down Westside Road on barrel tasting weekend and see why the Russian River wineries are a great place to visit by clicking here:
Artist View is located 1.5 hours from San Francisco and is one of Jenner's premier romantic getaways for the lover of nature, art, wine and food. For reservations and pricing information, please phone Russian River Getaways at 1.855.433.6673 and ask for Artist's View by name.
We look forward to making your stay an unforgettable experience in beautiful, Jenner By The Sea!

Hello to former guests and friends of Artist's View and Painter's Dream,
Greetings and we hope 2011 finds you well.
It is winter in Jenner by the Sea, and a magical time to visit our seaside village. There are lovely warm days, clear and brisk winter skies mixed with some exciting storms. Winter activities we recommend include beach walking to enjoy the pounding surf, hiking the many trails of Western Sonoma County, wine tasting in the gorgeous Russian River Valley, and cooking wonderful meals to share with friends and family. The winter creek is at it's most dramatic and waterfalls abound. We hope you will consider a visit over the next few months as we move into spring.
We thought you might want to be informed of some winter pricing specials and some updates to the property itself.
From now through visits ending by February 28, 2011, you can rent Artist's View/Painter's Dream for $275 per night and Artist's View for $210 per night. For a complete estimate, please contact our rental agent, Russian River Getaways, at 1-800-433-6673, or e-mail at email@example.com.
RRG is also offering a "3 nights for the price of two" special from now through March 31, 2011.
Consider a visit for Valentine's or President's Day!
Flexible Options for Singles and Couples
For those of you who have not been at our property since 2009, we now offer either the top flat by itself (Artist's View) while Painter's Dream ( the downstairs suite) remains locked off . If you crave a retreat on your own, or are a couple planning a romantic getaway, you can enjoy a visit for a reduced price. If you select this option, you will be the only guests on the property.

In 2010, we added the following to the house:
In the Great Room, you will now find a comfortable leather love seat. Perfect for cozying up to the fire.. We also installed blinds on the large picture windows and French doors, allowing guests who are using the day beds to sleep in. We added three inch memory foam to each day bed to add to your comfort.
We have installed central heating with an energy efficient furnace. There are three individually controlled climate zones in the Great Room, Artist's View bedroom suite, and Painter's Dream bedroom suite. We still have operating wood stoves in each living area, so you can enjoy the ambiance that only a wood fire provides.
On the deck outside the Great Room, we have added a large Weber gas grill, and you can now enjoy barbecue year round.
We have added memory foam to our mattress in Artist's View and a new bed frame, enhancing both comfort and mobility in the upstairs bedroom suite.
The kitchen now has a very good sized microwave.
The parking area has a chain restricting entry for guests only, which ensures privacy during your stay.
Lastly, in October we planted over two hundred tulip and daffodil bulbs. They will be blooming in February and March, so please come and enjoy!
Our very best,
Anne O'Brien and Scot Sier,
