Overview

About the property

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!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely - quaint, charming and completely comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed, the bedrooms comfortable and it's in a lovely spot. It feels secluded but is less than a 5 minute walk to a great bar and a coffee shop. Gary did everything we needed to make us comfortable including creating a fragrance free setting.

Wonderful stay in a charming home.

  • 4 of 5

We loved being able to walk everywhere and everyone is so friendly. The house is perfect if you want to get away from the noise. You can't help but relax with a good book and glass of wine. My friends and I hope to come back for a 2nd visit. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Lovely, comfortable vacation rental near wine country & coast

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our two nights here - the house was clean and cozy, and had everything we needed, along with some lovely extras. We went kayaking on the river one morning and really enjoyed having that option, as well as the Gold Coast bakery just a quick walk up the road for coffee. Note that there's no AT&T service here, so if that's your provider, your nearest cell service will be about ten miles away. There's a flip phone provided with the rental for emergencies, and there's wifi in the house but we found it to be pretty slow. Not a problem, since we weren't there to look at our screens anyway. Great communication with the owners & clear, complete directions & information in a folder at the house for our stay.

Secluded, yet a close walk to morning coffee and excellent pastries.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the home, the water, and visiting with the locals at the nearby coffee shop.

That BBQ needs repairs or an upgrade. Nothing spectacular, just something that lights as it should.

we had a great family time

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and description of the property are very accurate. This is a lovely home and the five of us had a great time. Duncans Mills is a very small town with not much there, though the coffee shop is pleasant and there are a few art shops around. The best assets are the river - kayak was very fun, and the ocean 20 minutes away in Jenner. Guerneville is a small town that comes alive on the week-end and has a few good restaurants. Do try the Russian House #1 in Jenner, it is quite unique!

Great place "to hide away"...

  • 5 of 5

Out family of 4 adults and 2 kids spent 8 nights at Yesteryear and that was a nice and relaxing vacation. The place is very cozy and quite, and at the same time it is at walking distance from stores and cafes.

The owners are very friendly and responsive.

The only little "hiccup" was that Wi-Fi periodically went off, and if you depend on it, including Wi-Fi calling, you better have Verizon service, since that is the only network available at that place.

Nevertheless, I give 5 stars to that place. It deserves it.
