Overview

About the property

Family-sized home with stunning views, seasonal kayaks and dock.

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!

Charm & comfort

  • 5 of 5

From the location (Duncan Mills is just out of the fog belt and typically sunny), to the convenience (near a small but fun shopping area), to the comfortable home, we were thrilled with our stay at Yesteryear! Our two teen granddaughters accompanied us for an annual ocean trip and this home was one of our favorites. It was very clean and had ample amenities, including a river setting with patio and dock as well as kayaks. We enjoyed morning coffee & pastries at the nearby bakery and forays to the beach, Sebastopol, & Petaluma. The house is well stocked with washer and dryer, games, two dining areas and most importantly, very comfortable furniture. The stairs leading up to the master bedroom are quite steep so beware if you have physical limitations--but it's a beautiful home in a peaceful setting!

Family vacation- four adults

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful retreat! We four, myself, my husband, our daughter, and son-in-law , had the very good fortune to stay at Yesteryear from June 25 to June 29. The house is delightful with lots of really nice details. It is very comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed ourselves hiking, kayaking and resting. The view of the river from the upper deck over breakfast or the lower deck with my book and coffee was so perfect. We even saw the river otters! Having the coffee shop close by for pastries and cappuccinos was an added bonus. We were very lucky to meet and have some wine with Gary and Jacqui . Hoping to be able to go back.

Perfect House on the Russian River

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! Everything I imagined it to be. Right on the Russian River with its own Jetty, kayaks, rubber rings and row boat. Lots of different areas of the house to relax and enjoy the sun. Fully equipped with BBQ, kitchen equipment and cooking basics.

Excellent communication from the hosts. Also had the best little village with shops, a pub, restaurant, coffee shop and even Rodeo just around the corner - but you'd never know when you were in the house as it felt so secluded. Will definitely come back again!!

Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Beautiful home and perfect location. We had a little trouble with the lack of water pressure. Not sure what was up with that. We thought maybe all the water, flooding, etc. could be to blame. Overall great time and will definitely return.

Comfortable and relaxing stay at a lovely home

The perfect place to relax and ring in the new year. The fireplace and close proximity to places to enjoy NYE dinner were all reasons to stay at this wonderful vacation rental.
