Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I must have been crazy when I thought I could afford a vacation home! Just fell in love with this area about 10 years ago and, well, one thing led to another. When the house is not rented, I spend lots of time enjoying the quiet and natural beauty of Abalone Cove and the surrounding area. This is my home away from home - I hope you enjoy it just as much. When I'm not escaping to Abalone Cove, I'm an entrepreneur who lives in Marin county with my two teens and cattle dog. Michelle is our neighbor, friend and property manager, who lives down the street and is a true gift to us and our renters. We try to make sure you have everything you need at the house. If I've missed anything, Michelle will take great care of you before and during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Duncans Mills:
I love to kayak, hike, trail run, eat, drink great wine, hang out with friends, roast marshmallows, relax in the hot tub - all are plentiful here. Some of my favorites are the zins in Dry Creek (45 min drive), the homemade pastries at Gold Coast Bakery in Duncans Mills (15 min walk), and the fabulous trails in Willow Creek Preserve a quick walk down the street (thanks to the good work of LandPaths).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Abalone Cove you'll feel a world away from the hubbub, yet fabulous dining and wine tasting is so close - Cape Fear restaurant is 5 minutes in Duncans Mills, Guerneville is 15 minutes, Korbel is 20 minutes, and Russian River and Dry Creek's world famous wineries are within a 45 minute drive. The house has both privacy and direct river access - a rare combination on the Russian River! It is cosy, comfortable and the natural setting is absolutely gorgeous.
