About Russian River Vacation Homes
We are Russian River Vacation Homes, a part of D&G Equity Management, Inc., a family owned and locally owned/operated property management company. Our Story: In 1980, D&G founders and owners Michael and Patty saw a need in the area for habitable, affordable housing. At that time, many of the little cabins along the Russian River, originally built as summer cabins, were unsuitable for year-round occupancy. D&G assisted property owners with fixing up and renting their cabins. As the largest property management company in western Sonoma County, D&G Equity Management continues to be a staple in the Russian River community. Russian River Vacation Homes is an off-shoot of D&G. One fine day in 1985, Michael's client, Bob, asked "Hey Mike, can you rent my cabin out just for the week or weekend instead of by the month?" Michael said "Sure!" and Russian River Vacation Homes was born. As renting vacation rentals became more popular, Russian River Vacation Homes grew into a full-time business with its own office. Today, Russian River Vacation Homes professionally manages over 60 high-quality vacation rentals. We strive to make each and every stay the best one ever. If you have any questions or concerns about reserving or staying with us, please don't hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.
Why Russian River Vacation Homes chose Forestville
Forestville is the first Russian River area town you will come to after exiting t101 on River Road. Forestville is home to several art galleries, wineries, Farm Trails member sites and great restaurants. There is a park for the kids and shopping, dining and coffee shops for the adults.
What makes this Estate unique
Why we love Black Mountain!- Black Mountain the perfect property for both families and groups of friends to escape together, and reconnect. The outdoor amenities like the pool, spa, play structure, and hiking trails will enhance your appreciation of the outdoor beauty of the Russian River Valley. We are happy to share this experience with you!
Great place for family group. Need better instructions on take out trash location.
Better lighting around property at night for walking between houses.
The property is great and well maintained.
Eight adults and eight children enjoyed the farm house, pool house and pool very much. The property has great amenities and is well maintained. The only real issue was the bees/yellow jackets around the pool. Perhaps some bee traps could have helped! Also, if live sporting events are important to guests, there's no TV service, so that could be an issue. Otherwise, all was great!
Thank you for the review!!! We are perpetually treating for the yellow jackets, but with only natural (kid and critter safe) treatments, it means more frequent applications. So far, so good for this spring though - we hope it holds!

Great place for family gathering!
We enjoyed our week at Black Mountain...especially the pool!
Excellent Weekend Getaway at an Incredible Property
We visited Black Mountain for a weekend retreat and reunion with 14 people. Not only is it located in a beautiful and secluded area but there was plenty of room for everyone and all the amenities we could want. Each couple had their own room and there's also a bedroom with 3 single beds.
The pool house was the perfect gathering area and two fully functional kitchens made dinners in the evening a real treat. We would highly recommend the property and property manager.
If we're able to plan a future getaway in the Russian River area we will definitely look to stay here again!
We would love to have you back anytime! Thanks for leaving a review for future guests!

Awesome rustic getaway for a group!
Black Mountain is a fantastic property. Our group of 16 adults fit perfectly, and had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and left a ton of fun floats for the next guests (you're welcome! ;)), cooked big meals in the pool house kitchen, star-gazed from the pool deck, and enjoyed the nearby redwood hikes and wineries. The location cannot be beat! We decided to keep all of our food and drinks in the pool house kitchen because we spent most of our time down there (rather than at the Farmhouse, which is about 50 yards uphill). It was nice to have an indoor space that was separated from the bedrooms so the the group had a place to hang out after the 10pm quiet time without disturbing anyone. We're a pretty loud group (lots of musicians and constant laughter), so we had to keep our outdoor volume in check once it got late. Despite the large acreage, the houses are close together and the groundskeeper cottage is closer to the pool than we expected, but there's a privacy wall and we didn't see him more than a few times over the weekend.
A few things worth noting:
- there's no TV or internet in the pool house, and it's pretty much a dead-zone for mobile service due to the metal roof.
- there was an issue with ants in some of the bedrooms in both houses, so I made sure to bring that up and I'm sure it will be dealt with swiftly.
- while the furnishings are nice and stylish, the property is definitely rustic -- the pictures may look like a villa in napa, but think hiking shoes over stilettos. Was the perfect mix for our adventurous group.
All in all, a pretty idyllic weekend. Hope to make it back to Black Mountain someday!
