Private long weekend in the Fern house

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the quiet retreat it afforded us. Just perfect for two of us to hang out, cook together and explore nearby hiking trails and beaches. We rented it partly because of the room with the mountainside view, it did not disappoint.

In love with this place.

  • 5 of 5

This is the cutest cabin ever. My husband and I stayed here when we got married last year in a nearby woods and a year later we decided to take a couple days off and stay here again. It was just as beautiful as we remembered. From the woods out back to the banana slugs in the grass to the tidepools down the highway, this place is perfect. The owners even got us a champagne toast for anniversary. Can't wait to stay here again.

Beautiful cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property! It's a very lovely cozy home. It was just right for our family of 4. Owner is a great host. They have thought about everything a guest would need and it's available in the house and easily accessible. Location is great as well. Backyard has beautiful redwoods that you can walk around. Front yard has the river ! It is also very accessible from grocery store, cafe, beaches & hikes in woods. We hope to go back sometime again!

Wonderfully rusty and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I were looking to get away for a few days, and this home was perfect! It's a bright and cheery little house facing Russian River and is surrounded by ferns and tall redwood trees. The trail in the back near the creek was fun to explore and the house is super close to Duncan Mills, which is an adorable little area. I'd definitely recommend checking out Goat Rock State Park as well -- despite inclement weather and bursts of rain, it was absolutely stunning. Jayne was super easy to communicate with and was very accommodating! The kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed to make meals, and we had more than enough blankets and heaters to stay cozy. The back living area did get a little cold (we didn't get a chance to use the wood stove, unfortunately) and the rain against the roof in that room got loud during more intense bouts, but I would still highly recommend staying here. If it was this great during a winter rain storm, I can only imagine how perfect it would be in the fall/spring/summer!

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 !
