We had the most amazing time at Joe and Jayne's beautiful cabin on the Russian River. Jayne was very responsive in helping us plan arrival and departure and gave some great recommendations about the area. We spent the first day exploring Duncan's Mills which is a sweet town with an awesome coffee shop (Gold Coast) and many wonderful, artsy shops. My mom who was visiting from New York enjoyed it all thoroughly. The house was so sweet with plenty of space for the three of us + our pug (who also enjoyed the area and redwood walking trail behind the house). On the second day of our visit, we went to Jenner and Guerneville, both of which are within 20 minutes of the house! We also rode the provided bikes to town which was an easy 10 minute ride (we had some wild blackberries along the way). All in all, a fabulous stay in a wonderful house with more than gracious hosts.
We had a magnificent stay at Joe and Jayne's cozy house. The setting is amazing, the location is great. The house is warm and cozy, well equipped and very clean. We had a wonderful stay.
The place was much spacious than what it seemed in the photos. It's located right next to a beautiful redwood forest. There are some houses nearby, but you can hardly see them. It's very quiet, which was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you so much for everything! The welcoming cookies were delicious. We would definitely stay here again.
A beautiful little hideaway in a super fun location... AND A BEAUTIFULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN! (with a useful selection of knives!) Also, there is a great hiking trail directly behind the house!
We were so sad to leave this beautiful place.. 2 days is not enough!!! The home is even more charming than pictured with everything our family needed to feel at home and we can't wait to return.
The sun room is in the middle of the woods and we loved having dinner at the big table in this gorgeous setting. The trails behind the property made for fun mini hikes and we loved being so close to town, the River and the Ocean.
We will definitely return. A few misc notes: Our small daughter's pack n play fit perfectly in the second bedroom. The home is very clean and we easily parked 2 cars in front of the property.
The house was perfect and exactly as listed. It was so cute and quaint, would definitely come again. They had everything you needed and we felt right at home.
We had a fantastic stay at Joe and Jayne's adorable little (actually not so little) cabin in the woods. The place is really well apportioned with bedrooms on opposite ends of the home (good for privacy if staying with unrelated people as we were) and a full bathroom with a tub. The living room is quite large with a very comfy couch (which a friend slept on) and a futon, which we did not utilize for sleeping. Generally the cottage is super cute and larger than it looks with a gorgeous approach. Even though it is nestled in the woods, it is quite comfortable with a fully loaded kitchen and yes, 'welcome cookies'. We attended a wedding at the Russian River Sportsman's lodge and walked to the little downtown area and the wedding (and walked back at night). The neighborhood was super nice and friendly people would wave to us as we walked, everyone drove cautiously cognizant of pedestrians too.
I'd recommend a stay at this cabin. The place was very clean and had just about everything one might need. We also drove to Fort Ross, Jenner and Guernville during the stay and all were very convenient.
