Guerneville is a small town nestled in a beautiful scenic valley surrounded by majestic redwood trees along the peaceful Russian River where you can swim, fish and canoe. We are in the heart of the wine country, Korbel Champagne Cellars with its beautiful flower gardens and wine tasting is nearby. Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve is a mile out of town, where you can bike, camp, stroll, hike or horseback ride through the cool redwood forest. There are many private and public camp grounds in or near town. Many Bed and Breakfast Inns and Resorts are within walking distance to the river and downtown such as Fern Grove, Applewood Inn, Creekside Inn, Fifes, Russian River Resort, The Willows, Paradise Cove, Highland Resort, Riverlane Resort, Dynamic Inn and Brookside Lodge.
My name is Kopavi "K.C." DeLise, I have grown-up here, played little league, attended Guerneville School, Monte Rio School and El Molino High School where I graduated in 1990. I earned a degree in Business Administration through attendance at Santa Rosa Junior College and Sierra College before receiving a baseball scholarship to finish my education at the University of California, at Fresno. I worked every summer until I returned for good in 1995 to work at my family's store, Midway Deli. It is where for five years we created and perfected our delicious pizza before moving out of the floodway to downtown. Main Street Station opened in June 1996.
My family (me, mom, grandma, gramps, aunt and dad), have owned and/or operated a variety of business here in the Russian River area. Some of the other businesses are the Duncans Mills General Store, Jenner C-Store, Midway Deli, 2 antique stores, a catering company and presently my mom Suzi Feehery is my partner.. Mom and I spent many hours developing the business plan and concept of Main Street Station. Then we began to create and construct the interior of the business (formerly Otto's Bakery, Jane's Department Store). Mom taught Commercial Art in College and is the Advertising Manager here, ( you also might see her at the door, waiting on your table, behind the bar or delivering pizza) she loves this place as much as I do. My mom raised me as a single parent, she never missed a game or activity while working full time. I love her and am very proud of her.
