Recent Monte Rio reviews

  • Awesome house with beautiful view

    "The Butterfly Cabin was just what we were hoping for. House is newly renovated, clean, and very well equipped. The view of the river was amazing, just wish we could have accessed the water, but not possible in wintertime. We had a great stay, and the location is perfect, best of the Russian River valley within an easy drive, and nice walks in the area. The only disappointment was that we found out when we arrived that we couldn't use wood in the fireplace, only duraflame logs, which we didn't want to use (and hadn't brought with us anyway), so we didn't get to use the fireplace as we had hoped. Overall, big thumbs up though. Thanks Sally for a great experience and for being so easy to reach with our questions!"

  • Charming Cottage with Great River Views

    "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."

  • Comfortable, quite property with well-stocked kitchen

    "We had a great long weekend at Como Estate. The house is comfortable, the view is beautiful, and there was even a turkey pan. Would definitely go again."

  • Very nice, quiet, clean, close to the river and perfect for hilkes.

    "We have been to Up & Away before and will return in the future. It is perfect for a stay up at the River."
