              Car: Recommended

              Riverfront Retreat is a peaceful getaway for nature-lovers looking for a comfortable, relaxing spot to rejuvenate and reunite with friends and family. Riverfront access and 3 kayaks lure you to explore the Russian River - great for kayaking, tubing, swimming, fishing, and birdwatching. A trail head to some of the best hiking and mountain biking in Sonoma County is located right on our road! For more heat and action (if you miss the crowds) head to Guerneville for the public beach, music festivals and fine dining. Craving the sound of crashing waves? The stunning Sonoma Coast is just 4.5 miles down the highway. Meander the gorgeous country roads, explore the charming hamlets, and visit the wineries and world class restaurants or beautiful Sonoma County. All this just 1 1/2/ hours from San Franicisco! Or if you're feeling less adventurous, just relax at the house in hot tub, play or picnic on the sunny meadow, read, swim, kayak, sleep, and soak up the peacefulness of this heavenly place.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We have both lived and travelled all over the world, but now call Oakland, California home. We enjoy hiking in the redwoods, playing on the beach, kayaking, biking, dancing and music with our children. We are both chefs, so we love good food, growing food, and nature.

              Why the Owner Chose Duncans Mills:
              As residents of the Bay Area, the Russian River has always been one of our very favorite places to escape the frenzy of urban living. Having lived and travelled all over the world, this area tops our list for the most beautiful places. We feel so fortunate to have this property and love to share it with others who appreciate the beauty of this magical place as much as we do.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love our home, but we also love its location. Duncans Mills is a quaint, sweet little town. We love the friendly people, the relaxed atmosphere, and the surrounding nature. We enjoy walks into town to chat with locals over a cup of tea at the cafe. We love hikes and bike rides around the area. And, of course, we love kayaking, swimming and playing in the river! The meadow and the easy river access it provides are a very special and unique feature of the property. The property has something to offer every month of the year. In the rainy months a 100 foot waterfall gushes from the mountainside across the street. It's the perfect soundtrack (along with the mooing of the cows on the mountain across the river) for sitting in the hot tub under a sky full of stars. In the warmer months, we enjoy swimming, playing ball on the meadow and kayaking and exploring the river. There is always something unique to enjoy, no matter the weather or time of year. We love to hear our guests' stories of their encounters with wildlife, favorite spots to explore, restaurants, beaches, wineries, and other local adventures. One thing remains static throughout the seasons. Riverfront Retreat offers peace and tranquility and although it is always hard to leave, we always leave happier than we were before we arrived.
