Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

We're a group of moms who just came back from staying at this property, and we wholeheartedly enjoyed our stay. From the initial communications for making slight adjustments to our plans, to the homebaked cookies upon our arrival to the s'mores kit and firepit ready to go, every little touch was just thoughtful and so appreciated. We loved the balcony with views, the firepit, the hot tub and the general sereneness of the property. All around, there were various areas set up for enjoying company and conversation if that's what you seek, or just a quiet area for lone contemplation. The kitchen was well stocked, the house was clean, the rec room had many games to choose from, ping pong, putt putt golf, cornhole, even an old school slot machine. The garage housed kayaks and a canoe, so many things to choose from and not enough time for us to take advantage of. We highly recommend this property, and look forward to a return stay. Thank you!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time in this house. The view is amazing, equipment is great. The location is really convenient for kayaking, float trip on the Russian River and wine testing. Michele, the house manager, is so nice and helpful. In brief, it was perfect. We'll be back!

Everything our family needed in this peaceful paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Red Gate and will highly recommend it to our friends. With a baby and a toddler plus our dog, this house had everything we needed. We loved the hot tub and taking walks into the town of Duncans Mills each day. We will be back!

Fantastic weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful weekend and great, comfortable stay at the Red Gate.

All the amenities were provided, including s’more. It was nice we didn’t have to run to the store for forgotten items. Hopefully we will return in the future!

Perfect for kids and grownups!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful, quiet spot. My friend and I each had our own rooms and our boys could sleep in the bunks. The game room was a hit as was all of the outdoor space. Walking to the bakery and exploring the river are all easily done. The way the fences and locks are set up - there are many place for kids to be outside without being worried that they'll wander too far which was great for us since they're 5 and always on the move!

After they crashed, it was easy enough for adult time in the hot tub and with the fire and close enough so we could hear them if there were any issues.

Highly recommend!

Fun! Clean, comfortable, and great for families.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for our family of 4 and to share with another family of 4. It was sparkling clean, with a lot of new touches and comfortable beds for the adults. We had two teen boys downstairs playroom. It's worth noting that that is a converted garage that doesn't have it's own bathroom so the boys had to come outside to go upstairs, but they were so thrilled to have their own space (with a ping pong table, mini gold, etc) they didn't care. Smallish living room, but we didn't mind because the furniture is nice and more importantly we spent all our time in the big yard, hot tub, and especially the four kayaks and two canoes (perfect for the 8 of us!) The dock is right off the yard. Couldn't be better for a family getaway. Truly away from it all.
