Jenner is a close-knit community with a small year-round population, although its numbers swell with passing tourists, particularly during the summer months, when Jenner's cool summertime temperatures provide a welcome relief from the heat found just a few miles inland. Fishermen, beachcombers, hikers, kayakers, and picnickers enjoy hiking trails and the long stretches of sandy beach and rugged coast of the Sonoma Coast State Beach, which extends from Bodega Bay north through Jenner. Also nearby, for history buffs, is the historic Russian fort compound at Fort Ross State Historic Park, located just a few miles north of Jenner.
With such a small population, it is no wonder that there are probably more vacation homes in Jenner than full-time residences, ranging from simple cabins to architect-designed custom homes. Homes in the actual town of Jenner tend to be older, while newer custom-homes can be found on the hills surrounding Jenner; many offering spectacular ocean views, privacy, and every modern convenience imaginable.

Jenner is a small coastal town that sits almost halfway between the northern and southern end of Sonoma County. Thanks to being perched up on a bluff where the Russian River flows into the Pacific, Jenner is specially noted for is stunning natural beauty and the spectacular views that are on display from a number of protected natural areas nearby, including Goat Rock State Beach - Sonoma State Park, Sonoma Coast State Park, and Russian River Vista Point. Most of Jenner’s amenities lie somewhere along Coast Highway, but outside of a cafe, small general store/market, a post office, and a kayak rental business, there isn’t much else to this laid-back, picturesque Sonoma County community.
If you had to use just one word to describe most homes for sale in Jenner, “impressive” might be what comes to mind first. From hillside cabins with sprawling views of the coastline to mid-century modern homes with sharp lines and drastic edges, houses in Jenner rarely leave potential home buyers disappointed. As a coastal town with a population of under 200 people, though, it’s likely that you’ll only find just a few options listed on the open market, which might also include a vacant home site or two in case you’re looking to built your new trophy home from the ground up. If it comes with an ocean view, look for most homes in Jenner to price somewhere between $1 million and $2 million, while older homes further up in the hills or further inland away from the coast typically come down to around $700,000 to $800,000.
