About MJ

I live in San Francisco and try to make it up to this home River to relax and unwind. I love the outdoors, hanging out with family and friends.

MJ purchased this house in 2016

Why MJ chose Duncans Mills

This home has the river on one side and woods behind it. You are part of a neighborhood yet you feel like you are in the middle of no where. Cars rarely drive by since this is one of the last homes on the road. The street has very few homes and a ban on building. I was looking to get far away from the city yet be part of a community.

What makes this house unique

River front properties are hard to find, especially to rent. Wild life abounds,there is a hill past the river with cows, plenty of birds in the elder and pine trees. Stress melts away as you immerse yourself in nature.

Cool, Breezy and Loads of Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful time at Mary's house. Simple and neat. Graciously appointed, the house has everything one needs. We spent our time mostly on the deck overlooking the Russian River. During the day the temperature never became uncomfortable and at night we often had stars that didn't end. Easy trips to the Monte Rio Beach or Guerneville fordiner at the Boon Cafe.

Love it.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Three days and nights of peace and quiet. The property is near the end of a dead end road so there is almost no traffic to contend with. The river is probably a thirty to fifty yard walk from the house. A small but nice floating dock is available for you to use as a kayak launch or for fishing. Note the fishing in August is pretty dismal since the sand bar downstream has closed up by mid summer, but I expect Winter and Spring fishing is another story. I expect we'll go back and try it again. Kitchen is very nice and much better than what we have experienced in other rentals. You may want to bring a good non stick pan, but aside from that there is nothing not to like here. MJ greeted us and gave a thorough tour of the joint. She is wonderful and warm hearted and has taken care of the place quite well. Though we did not use the hot tub I wish we had. I took the lid off and saw it was SUPER clean and as modern as modern can be.

Russian River Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We spent 7 nights at Howard's Place and loved it. The setting is beautiful, home is cozy and welcoming with everything you need (from cooking to toys). MJ went above and beyond to make sure we felt at home, and gave us inside tips about activities and trails in the area. We'll definitely return!

Peaceful cottage on the river

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet house at the end of the road, close to wildlife such as deer and raccoons. We rented kayaks from King's Sports in Guerneville who delivered to the house. We were able to launch right from the property. The house has been recently remodeled and is very clean. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped with good appliances. The deck is also very nice with a beautiful view of the river.

Much nicer than any river home we have rented in the past!

  • 5 of 5

Secluded location, beautiful view of the river from the large deck. Nicely appointed home with plush deck furniture to laze around on and read a good book. Updated simple finishes and gas fireplace which give the home a cozy feel. Gas bbq, hot tub, indoor/outdoor dining - this place really has it all!

The property is right on the river, however river access is a bit difficult from the property since there isn't a dock. It isn't a problem if you have kayaks. We still managed to get ourselves in our inner tubes and into the river one day. Limited cell reception in and around Duncan Mills so make sure you download directions before you head out there. Overall a beautiful river home! I would definitely stay here again!
