Lovely Home

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful setting! Comfy beds, fully stocked house. Loved the hot tub and river (and boats provided). The only downside was the smell of urine on the carpet downstairs. The house clearly has a lot of dog visitors.

Lovely home in a very serene setting.

Communication with contact person was great from the very start. Happy Trails home was just like the photos showed. The home was clean & well stocked. I would absolutely return.

The Happiest Trails!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed several times at Happy Trails and every single time, it is amazing, no matter the time of year.

The house is on the best spot on the river, nothing but lovely views from a surprisingly private backyard. There's also a brand new stone patio out by the water, absolutely gorgeous spot. The kitchen is very well equipped, the furniture comfortable and in good repair (three king beds!). The view from the master bedroom is spectacular (my mom says, as she always claims that room!). Lots of books for enjoying and a hot tub with a river view!

Nice little boat launch for toodling around in one of the four boats.

Duncan's Mills is also an adorable little town a quick walk away for a tasty coffee at Gold Coast or a pint at the Blue Heron.

Happy times at Happy Trails

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous property. I highly recommend this rental home. The house has a spectacular view of the Russian River. You will not want to leave once you get here. There is hiking and fabulous bicycling right out the door. There are three kayaks and a canoe for exploring the river or fishing. World class wineries are a short drive away. The beach (Jenner) is only 5 miles west. When the day ends, jump in the hot tub that looks out over the river. It was a joy to walk through the front door and see such exquisite upscale home comforts. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious. The three king beds are very comfy. The large back yard is great for playing, lounging on the deck chairs or swimming in the river. The house has lots of books and games for all ages. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and can’t wait to return.

The house with everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with 2 other families over memorial day weekend and had a wonderful time. Very easy to park driveway - we were nervous driving in b/c it's a small street and a lot of the houses had steep/skinny driveways. This is the best stocked kitchen we have ever seen from kid bowls/utensils to appliances. Lots of books to read as well for adults and children. Two of the rooms had king size beds and the room we had actually seemed to have a larger than normal king size bed and everything was really comfortable. They had 3 kayaks and a canoe in the garage and we took the canoe one day and it was perfect. It even came with kid size life vests. We loved the backyard and at first we were daunted by the river access since it involved walking through the water to get to the beach but then we realized it was super shallow and not bad at all.

Unfortunately the internet didn't work for us during our stay but I think we were busy enough that it didn't matter that much.

Wow - every detail was covered

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, myself, 10 year old son, and little dog) stayed at Happy Trails for the first time in June 2014. What a great place! The owners have every detail covered. The kitchen is FULLY equipped (we ate in almost every meal). I brought my own kitchen "incidentals" and didn't need to touch them. The view from the living room and kitchen is gorgeous. I could have sat and drank coffee/beer/wine all day but the river and the area called to us. It was so nice to have the kayaks right there to use and the hot tub to jump into after a long day of kayaking or cycling (great area for road biking by the way). I would highly recommend Happy Trails and look forward to a return visit. (P.S. Don't let the house numbering system fool you - the street numbers don't run sequential!)
