Simply Perfect...

  • 5 of 5

A genuine retreat. We loved this cosy home among the trees. We shopped and ate out in the charming Duncan Mills nearby and spent an afternoon at Goat Rock Beach, a short drive away.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend Jayne and Joe!

A Cozy Escape

  • 5 of 5

Jayne home is the coziest, quaintest home in the area. It is close to restaurants and stores. It has all the amenities one could ask for. Jayne is easily reachable over the phone and provides all the information needed for the house and surrounding areas. Definitely would stay here again if my travels brought me to the redwoods.

What a great place to rest and recharge!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are frequent fliers to Riverfern. The scenery is beautiful. Just sitting in the Fern Room, reading a book, will renew you. Of course, shopping across the way in Pig Alley and the other stores is always fun. The day trip into Sebastopol is always great! Make sure to see all of junk sculptures, and plan a few hours to meander through The Barlow. It's 12 acres and makes for a nice walk. Don't miss downtown Sebastopol, either!

Back to Jayne and Joe's secret hideaway for a glass of wine and dinner. The beds are comfy and our dog, Millie, enjoyed the nice doggy bed. It is so quiet that the first night we were there we heard owls cooing to each other. The fully stocked kitchen , the flowers and fresh baked cookies were a delightful touch , as always. Can't wait to come back!

The home sits in the middle of a redwood grove.

  • 5 of 5

The home literally is surrounded by redwoods. It has been carefully and lovingly maintained. It is very clean, and has everything you might want, especially in the kitchen. It is across the road from the river, about 3/4 miles from Duncans Mills. Has hiking paths into the redwoods, starting at the backdoor.
