comfortable cabin in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay very much. The location is fantastic - 20 minutes or so to Goat Rock beach on the ocean, 35 minutes to amazing wine tasting, 15 minutes to a beach on the river. There are beautiful redwood trees on the property, and we hiked the trails behind and around the cabin. Delicious cookies were provided, local coffee in the freezer, clean bedding, and books and games made this a perfect weekend getaway for my wife, 2 kids, and dog.

My only criticism is that it could stand some upgrades - the kitchen and bathroom are quite old (chipped and worn paint, old grout, dated cabinets, broken garbage disposal, etc), and the laundry room is very musty smelling despite spraying lysol and opening the door.

That said, it's a very good bargain in my opinion - if you don't mind a little wear and tear, you'll probably pay less than a comparable upgraded cabin.

All in all, we loved our stay, and would definitely consider staying again. Love love love the Russian River Valley!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your valuable feedback! Just to clarify, the garbage disposal is not broken - it is not an option with septic, so we had to remove it from the sink! I realize now that the little note I left could be misleading! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in this cozy "neck of the woods"!

Rejuvenating Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect relaxing getaway we were looking for! When you open the gate, it is like walking into a waiting fairyland. The house is totally well appointed with everything you might need; the kitchen was so wonderful I felt guilty we didn't cook more. The guestbook and notes about the house answer all your questions. With the trail behind the house, the gorgeous views, the quiet, we didn't really need to leave the house at all. (But of course we did and explored nearby towns of Duncans Mills, Guerneville and Occidental; and the beach at Bodega Bay.)

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so cute and in such a peaceful and green environment. The hosts left a batch a delicious cookies on the table and were so nice about us checking in early and leaving later.

The house has everything you need, lotsa coffee in the freezer, all the condiments & silverware/kitchen stuff you need, it's super equipped!

The mattresses are nice and the sheets very comfy!

Overall, we couldn't have hoped for a better place and better hosts!

Thanks again so much, Jayne and Joe :)

Our home has a private path along the seasonal creek through the redwood forest and a peekaboo view of the river across the street!

Duncans Mills is a quaint town w/ great shops & art galleries, restaurants, bakery, coffee shop, grocery store w/ organic choices, local meats, wines; check out the website www.duncansmills.net

Less than 15 min from the house is the mouth of the river where you can rent kayaks (wetsuits etc included) and paddle with sea lions! Also a great beach - Goat Rock just south of the town of Jenner and many more as you drive to Bodega Bay .. Less than 15 minutes south.

Lots to do.. Or simply enjoy the tranquility of our home !
