Alameda, Ca

The best we've ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

It was like coming home from a grocery shopping trip. Everything we could possibly need was right there. We just put the groceries away. We're amazed that so many treasures and artifacts are everywhere for visitors to enjoy. The rooms were comfortable, the view of the river right below! Even the rain was enjoyable. We loved our stay in Mallard Manor.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much!!! It really does matter to us to see such wonderful compliments about our Mallard Manor home. We are so happy that you had a great time even during the rain. You were all wonderful guests. We would welcome you back to Mallard or to any of our other homes again, when you need another visit to Sonoma. Russian River wine country is always a good idea. Thank you again, Russian River Getaways

Great place for a couple. Beautiful sunlight greets you in the morning.

Coffee on the deck, watching the birds and enjoying the river view.

The home was comfortable and made us want to return for some time during the winter to enjoy the fireplace.

Charming Cottage with Great River Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two nights at the beginning of April 2017. The Mallard Manor is a wonderful little vacation home perched right on the Russian River. The house was a nice size for two people and served as a great home-base for outdoor excursions and trips into the wine country. The house is quaint and lives up to its namesake with all sorts of duck-related decorations adorning every nook and cranny! The deck is wonderfully relaxing and totally fenced in, which was nice for our dogs to safely join us. The house itself has good double-pane windows and doors that kept noise from the road, and our neighbors at the time (late night partying), to a minimum. The bathroom and kitchen are small but adequate. Everything about the home basically met our expectations from the pictures, description, and reviews.

The reasons for four stars and not five are relatively minor but noteworthy: 1) The main bed was like a brick - if you like a firm mattress then this one is for you, but honestly, it was difficult to sleep on if you are used to anything even remotely more plush (or are a side or stomach sleeper), 2) The pull-out sofa beds, although we didn't need them for this stay, are dilapidated, and if we would have invited other adult friends to stay with us would have been totally insufficient. One of the two sofa-sleepers was non-functioning according to a note in the house itself, and the other sofa-sleeper was showing its age (one corner had totally broken support springs, and the mattress was shoddy and worn out). So, that is why I suggest this cottage is great for a couple only, at least until the owners update the other sleeping accommodations. Linens, blankets, flatware, and cookware are all in need of updating/replacing due to wear and tear in my opinion. But, everything was clean and functional and met our expectations in this regard. Overall, this was a wonderful vacation rental. But, I wanted to point out these small issues in the review hopefully for the benefit of the owners/property managers, because I honestly think that some minor improvements to the accommodations could really make Mallard Manor a five-star stay.

Great little house on the Russian River

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mallard Manor. It was perhaps the best equipped rental I've experienced. It had everything - kayaks, barbeque, exceptionally well-equipped kitchen. This meant we could relax and unwinded at the end of the day without worry. The setting is beautiful and the location remote enough to be peaceful and yet close to the coast, wineries and great food in Guernville. The perfect place to get away from it all.
