'YESTERYEAR' TIMELESS RIVERFRONT BEAUTY WITH EXCELLENT LOCATION

Russian River House Rental Photos and Description

Family-sized home with stunning views, seasonal kayaks and dock.

Welcome to Yesteryear, a traditional family-friendly home nestled on the banks of the Russian River in the delightful town of Duncans Mills, where shops, restaurants, groceries, coffee, and fresh pastries are all within easy walking distance.

This 2-story charmer with a wrap-around porch and spectacular river views has two full baths and will comfortably sleep 6. Downstairs is a cheerful and cozy bedroom with a queen sized bed and large window looking out to the front garden.

Upstairs you will find the master bedroom suite, a welcoming, sunlit area with a king sized, wrought iron bed, as well as a nicely appointed twin sized daybed with another twin sized pull-out trundle underneath. All matresses, both upstairs and downstairs, are high-quality memory foam. Those sleeping upstairs will be granted the pleasure of waking up to water reflections from the river dancing across the walls. Truly a beautiful and relaxing space.

The entire home is tastefully and traditionally decorated with classic, comfortable furnishings. Yesteryear offers plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and relax, in a sunny and serene setting.

Your own private dock and kayaks are provided from late May through the fall season (generally mid-October), and swimming can be enjoyed here during the warm summer months.

The view of the river from the living room is impressive enough, however the river-viewing platform perched atop the bank really takes it to another level. It is here where you can sit--virtually enveloped in nature--and truly find peace. This stretch of the river is a haven for wildlife, with common sightings of otters, herons, egrets, turtles, loons, osprey, and even sea lions. Surely no glass of wine will taste as sweet as when enjoyed with a loved one with a gently flowing river at your feet!

A relaxing and peaceful riverside getaway

My family stayed at Yesteryear for one week in August, for an end of summer relaxing trip in Duncan Mills. We had never visited Duncans Mills or the Russian River before, and we were delighted with all there was to experience here, in the particularly lovely home of Jackie and Gary. We had unseasonably mild and somewhat chilly weather for August, but the house was so inviting and cozy that we rather enjoyed staying indoors. We loved the cozy living room and fireplace, with the windows open to the sounds of the river, reading and enjoying the peace and quiet. Sitting on the front porch, watching the quail parade, enjoying a glass of wine - it was fantastic. The back porch is lovely too, and I sat out there and read while the guys were kayaking, so I could hear when they returned and dash down to the dock to help them get out of the river.

I have to add that the kitchen is very well equipped for cooking. We made our meals almost every night. The beautiful Wedgewood stove, that looks from the 1930’s, works like a dream, the oven too - I baked two loaves of bread, and a blueberry cake while we were here. There is also a convection oven over the stove, if you want to use that. It was handy for toast, or keeping food warm until everything was ready.

We all used the claw foot tub, which is huge and luxurious. The beds were very comfortable, and by the end of our stay, we were all getting up quite late.

The house in Duncans Mills is very conveniently located, with the river at your doorstep. We canoed and kayaked every day, landing on the mini islands and trying to identify birds, including egrets, quail, hawks and blue jays. We did see a river otter swim by one morning, caught a frog in the garden, and caught glimpses of the shy bunnies by the driveway. It seems like you are in the forest, but just a five minute walk around the corner you will find a well stocked general store, bakery, and a couple restaurants. Plus, the other river towns of Monte Rio, Guerneville, Forestville and others are just up the road. The coastal beaches are also well worth visiting, and very close to Duncans Mills.

We highly recommend Jackie and Gary's beautiful home, and we hope to return.

Our family of 5 truly loved our time at Yesteryear. It's even better than the pictures portray.
The home was very comfortable, well appointed and the beds were so comfortable.
Our kids (and us too) loved having access to the kayaks and canoes, fishing from the private dock and enjoying the viewing platform.
The home is literally right on the river and just a pleasant, short walk from restaurants, coffee shop and the general store.
We loved our time in Duncans Mills. We'll be back Yesteryear!

Charming riverside retreat

Just spent a lovely, relaxing weekend here. The house is charming, the beds are comfortable, and the deck overlooking the river was a magical place to while away the afternoon and watch the full moon rise. Duncan Mills is a cute town. The cinnamon roll at the bakery around the corner is reason enough to check this place out.

Wonderful Experience

This home was just put as a vacation rental this year so I was a little leery of renting it for the weekend with out reading any other reviews, but I’m so glad I did! We had a girls retreat and it was perfect location for getting away. It was beautifully decorated, the yard breathtaking, all in a peaceful and private setting.
There are stairs down to the dock where we had easy access to the river for kayaking. There were five of us and one dog; the house had plenty of room for all with two full bathrooms. Cozy bed and quiet nights gave us all a great night sleep!
The town within easy walking distance was picturesque and had everything you would need, coffee shop & bakery, restaurants, general store, shops, and even wine tasting.
I can’t wait to go back with my husband for a romantic getaway or with the kids for a family vacation. We definitely will go back again and highly recommend this superb house!
