Overview

Russian River House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to River Gardens, the remarkably versatile Russian River property that is just as suitable for a family retreat as it is for a honeymoon stay.

Say goodbye to stress and hello to peace, privacy, romance, and plain old fun on a very lush, fully fenced, 3/4 of an acre. Perfect for one or two couples, or a family.

Let the kids run and play on the large lawn while you enjoy a cocktail on the porch. Watch them swing under the shade of the huge bay tree while keeping your other eye on the otters swimming in the river. Wake up early and see a blue heron catch its breakfast.

Launch our canoe or kayaks from the private beach and paddle up to the town of Guerneville or down to the mouth of the Pacific. Cuddle by the fire when the fog rolls in. Relax in the jacuzzi bathtub and settle in for a night of comfort on premium mattresses and fine linens. Play a boardgame or grab one of our 150 books and dig in.

Location, location, location. Drive to Jenner and the ocean in 10 minutes (make sure to take our kite!), Bodega Bay in under 30, and Guerneville in 15 minutes. Renowned wineries dot the area and make for a wonderful afternoon of wine tasting and picnicking.

The driving destinations are plentiful, but it's what's in easy (and we mean easy!) walking distance that makes River Gardens the ultimate location. Located at the end of a country lane in Duncans Mills (on the town side of the bridge if you're familiar with the area), it's a breeze to walk to town where you'll find gourmet coffee and mochas, antique and specialty shops, wine and cheese tasting, the post office, brick oven pizza, and the popular Cape Fear Restaurant. You can also walk to the town's General Store for food staples, ice cream, or a nice bottle of local wine. It is entirely possible to leave your car in Park for the whole weekend and still find everything you need.

A beautiful setting. A beautiful house. It's all here, at River Gardens.

A dream come true

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not even come close to what this property has to offer. Peace, tranquility, closeness to nature, privacy - all in a well-kept, cozy home full of light. One can slip into this oasis and never feel as if one is in a rented place - it becomes home immediately. It is ideal for a personal retreat, for sharing unforgettable memories with a loved one, for relaxing and getting off the grid (almost). I am sure families would enjoy it, too, because the garden is expansive and the river access a delight. One can only wish that all visitors treat this exceptional home with the respect it and its generous owners deserve.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The perfect spot for an easy weekend getaway! My husband and I had an amazing time staying at the Duncan Mills house. The location is great for hiking in the redwoods, spending a day at the beach, or just staying at the house and taking the canoe/kayaks out on the river. The house has everything you need, plus it's only a short walk into the town of Duncan Mills to grab a coffee or dinner. On top of all the other amenities, our dog loved running around the huge fenced in yard. I cannot recommend this place enough!

What A Fantastic Place On The Russian River

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVE this place! We were looking for a nice, secluded place for our anniversary weekend getaway and River Gardens was perfect. The owners take great care in providing a wonderful place to relax and even made the effort to acknowledge we were there for our anniversary with a very kind gesture - which was greatly appreciated. This place is secluded enough that you feel like you're in your own little oasis on the Russian River, but close enough to the coast to get there with a short drive. Having proximity to Duncan's Mills and the General Store and a wonderful bakery/coffee shop was a plus and within walking distance was a plus as well.

The property itself is gorgeous and even more beautiful that the pictures you see in the listing. We spent most of our weekend relaxing on the property in the garden, on the deck, by the firepit and even on the private dock fishing and watching the otters and kayakers roll by while we enjoyed ourselves. The home is so comfortable that you forget you're not in a place of your own, sitting by the fireplace and enjoying the beautiful view out the floor to ceiling windows. Everything you could possibly need is provided - from the kitchen to the bedroom and the owners even make sure you have enough firewood to stay warm on those cool coastal nights.

Our only regret? Not staying longer. We'll definitely be going back.

Thanks Gary & Jacqui!!

Cannot Wait to go Back

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing getaway spot. You are so secluded yet so close to town you can walk. We took a few days to celebrate our anniversary and brought our pups along who had the time of their lives. Since getting home they have slept for 3 days they are so worn out from all the adventures. The river view and access is perfect. We enjoyed many evenings and mornings just sitting on the dock. We will definitely be going back. :)

A Garden Oasis

  • 5 of 5
My family recently spent one week at this garden property on the Russian River and had an unforgettable vacation. I wondered how I was going to pick a place that was private, relaxing and beautiful, and yet keep my husband and boys busy.This was the place. We enjoyed a hike in the redwoods at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, a mere 15 minute drive. We also enjoyed zip lining at Sonoma Canopy tours which was a thrill. Did you know that the platforms 300 feet off the ground actually sway? I could easily identify as a tree hugger up that high. We also played the most beautiful 9 hole golf course I have ever been on. I admit I am a bit of a redwood freak but the Northwoods course is only 10 minutes away and a course not to miss. It was fun to walk around the teeny tiny community of Duncans Mills and pretend we were in the past 100 years, especially after a quick kayak down river. We even trekked into San Francisco one day and Mendocino another day. The whole week was magical, but nothing more spectacular than sitting on the deck and feeling the canopy of such beautiful trees and greenery. The home was cozy and I enjoyed reading a good book by the fire most mornings while gazing out at the gardens. I highly recommend River Gardens and will certainly return, again and again if possible. What a gem!
