- Downstairs features a private entrance, bedroom with comfy queen bed and views of the river, and a full bath. Take a bubbly soak in the antique claw foot tub (with shower).
-Downstairs suite also includes a kitchenette with Sink, Mini Fridge and Coffeemaker.
- The 3rd sleeping area is a detached, charming and cozy Separate Sleeping Cottage with Queen Loft Bed, Sitting Area and Gas Fireplace. This sits just steps away from the main house and hot tub.
-Star gaze and soak your muscles in the hot tub, after a day of hiking, biking or being blissfully lazy...located in the very private courtyard

We have 2 children, so the house is very child-friendly. There are books, toys, life vests, water and sand toys, kid's movies and a high chair. Our family of four (7 and 9 year olds) uses only the upstairs portion of the house - 2 sleep in the king bed and 2 in the living room sofa bed. The downstairs areas are IDEAL for us to host another family or couple of friends as they provide 2 more comfy queen-size beds in 2 additional private sleeping areas. If co-sleeping is not ideal for your family or your children are not old enough to sleep in a separate area alone, a traditional 3-bedroom house may be a better fit for your family. It's great for some but not all families, depending on your sleeping arrangements. ...moreless

Riverfront Retreat is a peaceful getaway for nature-lovers looking for a comfortable, relaxing spot to rejuvenate 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 trailhead 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.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We have lived and travelled all over the world, but call Northern California home. We enjoy hiking in the redwoods, playing on the beach, kayaking, biking, dancing and music with our kids. We are both chefs, so also love growing, foraging, cooking and eating good food.
Why the Owner Chose Monte Rio, CA, USA:
As residents of the Bay Area, the Russian River is a close, convenient place to escape the frenzy of urban living. Duncan's Mills is a sweet, quiet community between Jenner and Guerneville. We love our neighbors and the peace and quiet of the area. Having lived and travelled all over the world, this area tops our 'Most Beautiful Places' list. We feel so blesssed to have this property and love sharing it with others who appreciate the natural 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 road. It's the perfect soundtrack (along with the mooing of the cows on the mountain ridge) 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 always enjoy hearing guests' stories of their encounters with wildlife, favorite spots to explore, restaurants, beaches, wineries, and other local adventures. No matter the season, Riverfront Retreat offers peace and tranquility and although it is always hard to leave, we always leave happy and relaxed.
