As oktoberfest season is upon us, we are left with the daunting prospect of a rather wet and chilly run-up to the even colder winter season - low temperatures and rain, much like our summer but with even less fun and more snow. At times like these, Munich folks look to warmer climes to escape the dreary weather we are experiencing here. For this year, TME wants to recommend a charming escape to the California wine and redwood country, Monte Rio! Situated on the Russian River, Monte Rio Cottages offer private and luxurious accommodation to those willing to explore this picturesque part of California.
There are three different types of lodging; cottages, suites and sleeping cabins, all of which contain the standard hotel amenities you will have come to expect.
The cottages offer full amenities, private hot tubs, private yards, private gas grills, fully equipped kitchens, premium linens, robes, toiletries, SmarTVs or Apple TVs, with free movie streaming on NetFlix and much much more. Â
The suites offer full amenities, shared yard, hot tub, gas grill and fire ring. They have kitchenettes, cable TV, WiFi, housekeeping and electric fireplaces.
The sleeping cabins are akin to luxury camping, and offer premium linens, robes, ensuite water closet, outdoor shower and housekeeping.
With excellent local amenities and beautiful countryside and forests, the temptation is to spend your days trekking and playing on the river, but make no mistake, these cottages offer first class facilities which would make staying indoors an absolute treat. Â For a breakdown of a few of the features on offer, check out the Heron Cottage.
So instead of wrapping-up and sludging your way around Munich this fall/winter, why not turn that California dreaming into reality and book you and your family a rejuvenating mid-season break to the world-famous Calfornia wine country.
