Overview

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!

Beautiful retreat has it all!

  • 5 of 5
The attention to detail in this beautiful and charming home is like none other. Everything is lovingly assembled to create a warm and relaxing nest. We happen to be there during a big storm which made it even more romantic to just sit and enjoy viewing the river right outside our door and snuggle in front of the beautiful brick fireplace. Great restaurants and best coffee with wood fired pastries just around the corner. Hiked one of the best trails in all of Sonoma County- Landspath Islands in the Sky trail to Shell Beach (permit required). Walked right out our door over to trailhead! We'll be back for sure in the summer to play with all the water toys. Thank you for sharing your delightful home!

Charming farmhouse maintained to a standard of excellence in a quiet out-of-the way location with easy access. All the amenities one could wish for and all the everyday necessities in abundance. Fireplace with enough firewood at arm's reach for months. Wonderful bed and bed pillows . Don't want to forget to mention that. The Russian River right out the door is almost surreal.

Gorgeous house/location - everything you need

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful property - we absolutely felt right at home - everything you need (including satellite wireless) but far enough away to feel totally relaxed. The dock and canoes/kayaks were awesome, we made a fire every night and did not want to leave. Thanks for a wonderful stay - we will definitely be back!!

Amazing, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
We spent two lovely nights at Yesteryear in October. Our two young kids came with us and loved the older home. It's in perfect and very clean condition. We used the fireplace both nights, with the wood provided. We spent three hours on the Russian River, using the equipment from the house. We hope we can return again, maybe in spring or summer next year. The tap water has a very strong taste as has been mentioned elsewhere. We bought bottled water around the corner at the store to easily solve that issue. The home is clearly carefully cared for by the owners. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for leaving your review, we are happy you enjoyed your stay.

Since we became aware of the water problem we have installed a purification filter system, also we have been supplying bottle water -- so sorry this was over looked for your stay.

We are continuing to monitor the water quality and provide bottle water.

We look forward to your return in the spring.

Most sincerely,

Gary & Jacqueline

Wonderful hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 (and our old golden retriever) absolutely LOVED our stay here. It is as charming a home as you imagine from the pictures, tucked away on a very quiet and peaceful stretch of river. It is an older home that cozies right up with the help of their great woodburning fireplace, it's tastefully decorated and modernized in just the right ways while still maintaining some great character. The living room was well laid out and comfortable enough to let our 9-month-old scoot around without too much worry. We at one time had considered bringing another family with us for the weekend, but were glad we didn't - while the house has ample space, having two separate families/couples could find its challenges. Most notably since the home is older and sound travels unobstructed throughout the separate areas of the house.

We felt right at home - and enjoyed being in and around the house so much that we didn't really leave! We relaxed, went for canoe rides, cooked lots of food, drank bourbon late into the evening on the deck with river view and generally did all the enjoying that was possible here in one weekend.

Cute little "town" of Duncan Mills is within short walking distance - and they have a few antique shops, a very adequate market for basic groceries, beer, wine and saltwater taffy. Also a coffee shop that was always quite crowded, surprisingly. And the Blue Heron always seemed a little too surly for our liking, but our younger single selves did have some internal hunger pangs when we saw the sign for "Live Music, Saturday Night." Alas, we sang lullabyes to the baby for bed and afterwards grilled some killer steaks on the grill while drinking a fabulous bottle of Sonoma wine.

We've rented many a VRBO house around the country, and this place is definitely a top 3. Can't wait to come back ...

Ideally located within the quaint town of Duncans Mills. Walk to coffee, restaurants, grocery, shops, art galleries, and wine & cheese tasting. Fifteen minutes from Guerneville in one direction, and Jenner and the ocean in the other directions. Dozens of wineries within 30 minutes, including award-winning Korbel Champagne.
