Duncans Mills house description

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!
