Such a perfect getaway
This is the perfect place if you want to be immersed in nature. The trails in the backyard literally link to the trails in the Willow Space Open Preserve so I never had to drive anywhere to access the hikes. It’s miles and miles of trails with no one on them. (Start climbing up the mountain when you reach the sign that says water tanks in the creek trail behind the house). My dog was in heaven the entire time. Plus they left cookies on the table for us which is just such a cute touch. I usually don’t repeat staying at places since I always like to try something new but I would definitely come back here.
The house, by the way, is great and very comfortable but it’s the location that blew me away the most.
Redwoods and nearby beaches
Beautiful setting nestled in the redwoods. Beaches are a 10 minute drive away. A lovely and mellow escape.
Beautiful setting and house with all the necessities
I really enjoyed my stay at the river retreat. The house was well equipped to host our folks that varied from 4 overnight to 10 during the day for a writing retreat. We did have a slight problem with lots of flies being in the house when we arrived, but leaving the windows cracked overnight helped. We notified Jayne and she followed up very quickly, as did her property manager the next day. Communicating with Jayne was easy and overall, I really enjoyed my stay.
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!
We enjoyed having you as a guest and Are so glad you enjoyed your stay!
A Cozy Escape
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!
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!
Our home has a private path along the seasonal creek through the redwood forest and a peekaboo view of the river across the street! Duncans Mills is a quaint town w/ great shops & art galleries, restaurants, bakery, coffee shop, grocery store w/ organic choices, local meats, wines; check out the website www.duncansmills.net Less than 15 min from the house is the mouth of the river where you can rent kayaks (wetsuits etc included) and paddle with sea lions! Also a great beach - Goat Rock just south of the town of Jenner and many more as you drive to Bodega Bay .. Less than 15 minutes south. Lots to do.. Or simply enjoy the tranquility of our home !
