In addition to its itinerant population of vacationers and day-trippers, Monte Rio has a small, permanent residential community of retirees, local workers, and city commuters who enjoy a quiet, rural lifestyle.  Homes in Monte Rio are an eclectic assortment of era and architectural style, ranging from bungalows and cottages built during the early 1900s to mid-century and contemporary homes.  Some homes in Monte Rio have river frontage; while other Monte Rio homes are nestled into towering redwoods forests.
