Mark October 2021
What a terrific place! We had a great vacation, and there are so many wonderful amenities. Duncans Mills is really close to the coast, with its own small general store and restaurants. Safeway in Guerneville. All of these things made Happy Trails a great jumping off spot to so many things. Communication was easy, prompt, and everything was as described. Beds were comfy, with a large living room, kitchen and dining table to gather as friends and family. The kitchen was VERY well stocked with pots, pans, equipment, cutlery, etc., and multiple place settings for larger groups. Pet friendly, and the entire yard is fenced in. We had access to kayaks as well as a canoe, which made enjoying the river possible for our group. Happy Trails is a great place, and we’d stay there again.

Nicholas September 2021
We've stayed at the Happy Trails house multiple times now and it's always a fantastic experience. We will be going again!

Jeremy September 2021
The pictures do not do this place justice. It’s an amazing fully fenced and multi tiered backyard that backs right up to the river. This time of year the river is pretty slow so we brought some low chairs and sat em in the shallow water. Our dogs love swimming and I would rate this spot as easy to swim for a pooch. The neighborhood was private and on the week days late summer there was no one around. Inside the house was immaculate and anything that you might wonder about is probably addressed in the house rules binder. The view is quite impressive. Lots of wildlife roaming the mountain across the river. I’d return. 10/10

Betty August 2021
Excellent host, nice location with an amazing surrounding and backyard.

Ringae July 2021
We had a great time here. We enjoyed the hot tub, patio, views and yard, foosball table and a kitchen with a lot of pots, pans, etc.. Plenty of room and a well-laid out space for hanging out. Duncan Mills is a short drive away or longish walk. Cute town. The internet was ok but a little slow. It was really awkward to get down onto the river and the part in front on the place is very algae-filled. The master bedroom has a big window with great views but no real curtain so it gets bright really early.

Vidya June 2021
Comfortable home, great for our family! We really enjoyed the stay.

Margaret May 2021
Spacious home with good views, location easy access to river, ocean, wineries very pleasant

Eamon April 2021
We really enjoyed our stay here. We loved that the host got us the boats for the river. They were very responsive and let us know that we could check in early. Our kids loved garden and we were really happy that it was all fenced in. Also they have loads of Kids movies on DVD, and lots of interesting books to read. Also a good selection of board games and puzzles. The view in the mornings is beautiful with the mist on the river, and the location is great, there are stores and a coffee shot close by. If felt like we were very far from the hustle and bustle of city life. If your looking for a relaxing trip away where you can let the kids run around safely in the garden, then this is a good option.

Wendy April 2021
We LOVED our stay at Happy Trails! The property and location are perfect!! We walked to Duncan Mills Bakery, hung out in the hot tub and waded out to an island in the river behind the house! The beds were super comfortable and I appreciated that every room has shades you can pull down for a darker room! Kitchen is well equipped and there’s plenty of space for fun!

Audrey April 2021
We had a very relaxing getaway at this lovely home. On a quiet street with a very private yard and a gorgeous view of the river, hills and trees, with plenty of room for our family, this was an unforgettable vacation! We hiked, biked, went to the beach, lazed in the hot tub, watched movies, and made some delicious meals. The house had everything we needed and we loved the comfy beds. We look forward to returning again soon!

Jenny April 2021
This place is really beautiful. I was not expecting the serene, beautiful view from the backyard, we could've sat out there all day for our entire stay. The hot tub is easy to use. The house is very comfortable, lots of lounge area and really nice beds. We will definitely look to book this place again in the future!

Anoushka Daska-Coyle February 2021
Great kitchen - has everything you need to cook up a fabulous meal! Very clean with peaceful views of the river. Hot tub was fully functional. No cell service in the area (AT&T) but WiFi worked great. Would stay again!

Justin December 2020
My family and I stayed at Happy Trails from 12/5 to 12/8 and really enjoyed our stay. The location of the house is a short drive to Duncan’s Mills and right on the river. The views from the backyard were amazing to wake up to each day, and the house was incredibly cozy. The house itself had so many interesting things to look at (many hidden trinkets), and had ample dish and cookware to accommodate all 6 of us comfortably. If you’re looking for a quiet place to stay in very rural environs, this is the place for you.

Brian November 2020
Warm, good location and excellent amenities in the house.

Joe November 2020
Fantastic getaway right on the river.

Galina November 2020
Absolutely an amazing place You have everything you need starting with kitchen supplies and ending with games and kayaks Location is great , 5 min drive from store but feels like you are deep in the forest, and ofc river at the back yard

Nicholas October 2020
We've never been so sad to leave a vacation home. We will definitely be going back soon, and for a longer stay.

Christine October 2020
Absolutely perfect location on the river! We were blessed with cool fog and a light drizzle in the morning, starry nights in the evening. Comfortable and welcoming space!

Robert September 2020
Happy Trails in Duncan Mills is a private, quiet home right on the south side of the river. The home is well laid out, clean and enjoys the hill view and part of the river. The river is not young kid friendly but would work well for kayaking. I tried swimming twice at high tide and it is still shallow with a lot of plant life. The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking. There is a hiking trail within walking distance. The home is beginning to be a little tired maybe needing fresh paint. All in all we would return and the River Getaways personnel was terrific.

Kelly September 2020
Happy Trails was amazing! The home was beyond our expectations! From the home itself, to the grounds, the incredible views, the river access, kayaks/canoe, dog friendly yard, hot tub, hospitality and ease of access! It was all simply wonderful and perfect! Happy Trails has become our new favorite rental when we visit the Russian River! We all were sad to leave such a magical place and look forward to next years annual get together!

Nicole September 2020
Happy Trails was great and better than I expected. There were kayaks and a canoe for use on the river. There was a clean and warm hot tub. The place was clean. Quick responses to our requests/issues, and they accommodated our late check our request. We will be back!

Michael August 2020
Great location. Amazing property. Great house.

Daniel March 2020
Great location! In the summer when the kayaks and canoes are available this would be ideal. The kitchen was fully stocked with almost anything you could need. The rooms were all nice and clean and comfortable. Hot tubs was nicely placed and very welcome relief after hiking all day. The only concern I had was personal preference and that was that the beds were all "Firm". Location is private but close to a nice hike and to the general store and 3 restaurants.

Tom March 2020
Super dog friendly house with a huge amount of fenced in yard. Great cabin feel with huge comfortable beds.

Nina March 2020
Lovely Diane, well appointed and very close to the river. Beds were super comfy and the kitchen was well stocked. Would definitely recommend staying here during the warmer months to make use of the kayaks! Thanks for a such a lovely stay!

Sid February 2020
Excellent location, nestled in redwoods.

Francois January 2020
We had a wonderful stay at this cute house. Great location, great set up, and the host was very responsive. great times guaranteed

Don January 2020
Great place to relax and enjoy the river.

Claude January 2020
Beautiful house and property on a quiet, peaceful road!

Joey December 2019
Beautiful setting. Large, comfortable house.

Courtney November 2019
We had a great weekend here with our family! The fenced in backyard was great for our dog. And the stars at night were amazing! We want to come back here in the summer and enjoy the kayaks.

Lillian November 2019
The location on the water and quick communication from the rental company were great, but the house itself and some of the furnishings, including the bedding, could benefit from some TLC or replacing.

Jayleen November 2019
The views of the lake are to die for!Every room has a great view, and the beds are super comfy. We also enjoyed the spa and grill. This place is a great getaway.

Response from Russian River Getaways November 2019
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Jayleen, and hope you'll be back...just a note that the "lake" is actually the Russian River (which can appear lake-like at certain points). Thanks for the review! -Rachel

Nick October 2019
The perfect spot on the river in Duncans Mills! The house was cozy, the kitchen very well equipped for home cooked meals and the yard was gorgeous. As other reviews mentioned, it's not easy to get into the water with provided kayaks due to the steep muddy drop off, but we were able to make it in. Great spot for adults, a little hard with our toddler (front door with lever handle doesn't lock from inside of the house + lots of hand holding on terraced stone steps) but would recommend.

Aracelie October 2019
Had a great time! Great place! Really cozy and clean and extras to help ur stay more memorable.

Kelsey October 2019
This was the perfect place for a little weekend getaway with our two dogs. The yard and view are spectacular, even better than pictured in the photos. The house has all the amenities we could need, plus tons of books, games and DVDs. Everything was easy to find and we didn’t really need to contact host for much. Hot tub is wonderful. Fully fenced in yard is great for dogs, ours had a blast. House is in pretty secluded area, so it’s a nice place to recharge and stay in your PJs all day :) We will definitely be back!

Theresa September 2019
Comfortable house near Duncan Mills. Beautiful views, wildlife and great amenities. Really enjoyed.

Samantha September 2019
Overall a cute, comfortable home with lots of amenities. Great for cooking, bbq-ing and relaxing. Accessing the river with a kayak can be a bit challenging as there’s a bit of a narrow dirt path to navigate down. Host was very responsive and easy to connect with.

Sarah September 2019
The house was beautiful and directly on the river. The home comfortably sleeper 6 couples and we loved the master bedroom overlooking the river. The kitchen was great to cook some family meals, and the hot tube was perfect for relaxing in the evening. Getting into the river was tricky as the stairs have washed away but the neighbors were kind to let us walk in down their steps. The river was refreshing and mellow. The location was perfect as we enjoyed the local heron, cape fear and wine and cheese spot down the road. Thank you for the drink tokens to the heron, they have strong drinks! The wine and cheese shop was lovely to start our day. Hope next time we can enjoy the Friday party. We were only 15 min from downtown Guerneville, and 30 min from Steelhead beach. We were all enjoyed a river float and not have to drive back to the city. Thank you again for the relaxing getaway.

Minal August 2019
Serene getaway close to beaches on the river and Bodega Bay. The home itself has a ton of books - and one can spend hours sitting in the living room or yard reading, sipping some tea and really slowing down. We have been to this home twice now and will likely be back!

Brian August 2019
Well appointed space with everything you could want to relax and cook up some great meals. Being right on the river was so convenient. Actual water access was a little bit challenging but so much better than packing everything a couple blocks to the river as in past rentals. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to be back again.

Megan August 2019
If you love cooking and hanging outside morning to night, this is the place for you! Great yard for a dog as well. I'd come back again anytime of year.

Noname June 2019
The home is well kept and spacious. The beds are comfortable and there's access to board games, movies, loads of books, etc to keep everyone entertained. The lawn is expansive and perfect for kids and pets.

Amy June 2019
Great spot on the river. Not too deep and protected a bit from the current. Island “beach” just out a bit. Had a blast on the kayaks.

Daniel May 2019
Great home, amazing location. Highly recommend

Jordan May 2019
Huge windows, big yard, nice and clean, lots of pots and pans, right on the river . . what's not to like? We had an excellent and relaxing stay.

Andrew May 2019
Beautiful property with complete private views straight through to the river. The river is right in your backyard and the views from the house are stunning. Honestly the most beautiful house I've stayed at in Napa and will definitely be back! The house comes with 3 kayaks, a canoe, and a floating dock in the backyard that you can use to launch the watercraft.

Erin May 2019
Great stay and would recommend!

Lauren April 2019
My family and I had a wonderful time during Easter weekend! The place had everything we needed. Loved the comfort of the beds and the location is just where we wanted to be.

Werner April 2019
Nice quiet spot on the river. Local Duncan Mills grocery store is a nice touch. We made several runs there during our stay. Do expect zero cell coverage before arriving. Especially those who rely on GPS only.

Rachel February 2019
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was such a peaceful setting with plenty of room to spread out to enjoy as a group, or hide away to snuggle up and read a good book.

Christie January 2019
We loved our stay so much that we booked an additional night. The view is amazing and the house had everything we needed. We are already planning our trip back. Thank you!

Tara January 2019
We enjoyed a quiet and beautiful New Year's at this property. The beds were super comfy and the hot tub was great for chilly winter afternoons.

Michael December 2018
This is a very nice rental. Well stocked kitchen, very comfy tempurpedic beds in all rooms. The views are amazing. The house is a bit worn in terms of flooring and some key furniture but hopefully owners will address that. We had a wonderful time hiking in the area and there are great trails accessed from the house.

Mike December 2018
What a great place for a larger group. We had a full family holiday visit and cooked many meals in their well-equipped kitchen. We really enjoyed quick trips to teh coast for beach walks and hikes in the surrounding hills. We also enjoyed the local bakery in nearby Duncan Mills.

Nina November 2018
This place is amazing.

Douglas November 2018
Thank you for hosting us! The house is very cute and picturesque. We brought our dogs and they had a great time in the yard.

Harlan November 2018
If you are looking for a nice off-the-grid weekend getaway, this is the place. Low key. Right on the water. Easy to get to the coast or drive into Guerneville. Great amenities. Nice property. Comfortable bedding. Attentive property management. Kayaks. Super close to Duncan Mills, where I would recommend the Cape Fear Cafe, and the Gold Coast Coffee & Bakery, but not the Blue Heron, at least not for the food.

Chelsea October 2018
This place is so great, especially if you have a dog! Our dog woke us up every morning when the sun came up because she was so excited to play around in the backyard. It was like Christmas morning for her - haha! The yard is fully fenced too so we didn't have to worry about her, it was so great! The location is superb and it's nice to have access to the canoes on the river and then the hot tub at night. We'll definitely be back.

Erin October 2018
What a beautiful spot! The house was quite comfortable and cozy, the yard and views were stunning, and we were pleasantly surprised to find a well equipped kitchen. Communication was easy throughout. We’re already looking forward to booking again.

Christiana September 2018
Stunning location and the home was so cozy with all the amenities we needed for a wonderful stay by the river!

Wendy August 2018
My family just wrapped up a fantastic stay. The house was a ton of fun for myself, husband and two children. The location was fabulous and we definitely plan on returning!

Alex July 2018
Great house!

Benjamin July 2018
Lovely place! 10/10 would recommend

Mary June 2018
We had a wonderful stay here. The views were amazing. We spent Father’s Day weekend here and our family had a great time!!

Megan May 2018
Not only was the house and location amazing, but we had a very minor hiccup and the property management company was so quick to respond and resolve that we could not believe it. If we were unable to book this one in the future for some reason (we absolutely plan on going back!!!), I would look to the same company to find another house as the customer service spoke volumes! Thank you so much for having us! PS - for those with kids and/or dogs, the fenced in yard actually allows you to relax.. at least momentarily!

Michelle May 2018
We loved our stay and will definitely be back. It was beautiful, serene, full of sun, and everyday was the best day! Ha! Feeling super grateful, rejuvenated, and just a tad sad we had to leave! But it just encourages me to plan another adventure. Thank you so much for being a part of such a special trip!

James May 2018
We had a fun time. It was a nice place and the weather was very beautiful while we were there.

Beth April 2018
Awesome Home. Secluded and still within walking distance (20 minutes) of a terrific little restaurant (Cape Fear Cafe). Our group of 6 adults enjoyed the scenery, the quiet, and the house itself. All six adults found their own little space, either indoors or outdoors, to enjoy some alone time. Two very god tips in the suggestions: Go during daylight hours for the first time! Next is to read the part where it says the house numbers are not in order...

Richie April 2018
Amazing view. Beatiful home. Very comfortable stay. Well worth every penny spent

Arin March 2018
A wonderful weekend. The house was had a beautiful combination of spacious bedrooms each with a king size bed and cozy living spaces. It was prefect for our weekend reunion of three friends + our families. Kids loved the outdoor spaces, the river, the foosball table. The fenced on yard was great for our beagle. Adults loved the hot tub and the well stocked kitchen. Really this house has all the things. Highly recommended.

Great house, great management group, and incredible location on the Russian River, only a few miles in from the coast. The house is rustic but super clean and with beautiful views down to the river, and a large patio and secondary coffee table and chairs on the riverbank to choose between. We stayed with a group of 6 adults and one 2-year-old baby, and we all had as much space as we could possibly want, and a kitchen big enough to fit all of us cooking and talking. The house is quiet enough that we were able to play boardgames at full volume downstairs without waking the baby, and there was no noise clash between early and late risers. It was a perfect getaway.

Everything is just as pictured at Happy Trails...and that is saying a lot. We felt as though we had a very private and beautiful slice of California wine country right out of our windows. The view is incredible and completely unobstructed. We enjoyed the living room, chairs by the river, and other amenities so much that we rarely left during our stay. This is the second time I have rented with River Getaways--I completely trust them to be there if anything is needed. There is excellent communication with any question you may have. I highly recommend this home and hope to be back some day.

We had the most incredible time at Happy Trails. The house was big and beautiful with a huge yard. We enjoyed the hot tub, BBQ, river access, and views in the morning. Would absolutely love to come back again!

Beautiful property in a secluded area, our family greatly enjoyed the stay there. The setting looking over the river and hills and nestled into the redwoods was breathtaking. The house was very comfortable, although the bathrooms (except for upstairs one) could use some refreshing, as could the carpet. The kitchen was very well appointed, with all the supplies we needed to cook delicious meals. One thing to note: those coming in the summer should be aware that the property is quite close to the coast, so it can be cool and overcast, especially in the morning and evening. It typically will not get over 70 degrees, so don't expect super hot summer weather. Thanks to the hosts for sharing your lovely home!

This gorgeous house is in a wonderful location, delightful views from the sitting room and very clean. We so enjoyed the space, the views, the kayaks, the hot tub, the surrounding area and dining outside in the garden and were thankful for a fully stocked kitchen, the kids were pleased there was a waffle maker. Great place to relax with the kids and grandparents and an enjoyable home to come back to at the end of the day. My parents enjoyed waking up to an incredible midnight sky full of bright stars from the front bedroom. A fantastic place to stay.

The home, location, and setting are lovely, you won't be disappointed! Not to mention, the King sized beds were sooooo incredible comfortable :)

Comfortable home with lovely living room view of the river and ready river access. Fenced-in yard great for dogs. Kitchen very well stocked for cooking.

The place was awesome and perfect for our two families, 4 adults and 2 kids. Everyone in our party was extremely happy about the place! The kitchen, living room, dining room layout was perfect for socializing and entertaining with plenty of room for the kids to play and move about. The upstairs bedrooms were wonderful with a bonus sitting/playing area for the kids. The place was clean and well prepared for our arrival. Communications prior to the stay was perfect. The kitchen had everything you could want for cooking and eating as well as plates, cups, and utensils for the kids. There were even toys and books for the kids. The overall layout of the house was great along with the beautiful view of the river and hills beyond. The location of the place was perfect as well. Walking distance to general store, bakery, tavern and other shops. A short drive to additional shops and other parts of the Russian River. The house is on the River and felt very secluded. We saw lots of animals including a bald eagle, a bob cat, egrets, and loads of cows. We'll have to return in the summer when it's warmer and we can take the boats/kayaks out into the river. This place is simply marvelous!

Adored this little cottage with a big, gorgeous view and fenced yard for my dog! As usual, RG did an excellent job of providing a clean space with well-communicated directions for amenities and doggie bowls and toys for Biscuits Jackson - she is a huge fan of theirs! The hot tub was a huge success with my guests and we had an amazing weekend hanging out.

We had a wonderful time on our family retreat! The home is comfortable and cozy. The kitchen was amazing, we prepared Easter dinner and everything we needed was on hand for preparation. Loved , loved , loved the view from the river side bedroom. Comfortable beds , plenty of blankets and pillows. Great nights sleep! Walked to the coffee/bakery every morning , so delicious!

My friends and I had a lovely stay here. The process for accessing the property was seamless and there were plenty of amenities to enjoy. The neighborhood was quiet, quaint and lovely (small road and lovely redwoods everywhere). The best part of this house is the yard--it's multi-level with a hot tub and great chairs/table and looks directly across to the river and bovine grazing hills across the way (no houses staring back at you) so it felt like a private getaway indeed. We could have spent the entire weekend in the yard (could have...but it was raining!). Great hosts that were very responsive and generous with the space--thanks!

Happy Trails was exactly what I got from the pictures, it was absolutely perfect! Justin was a very accommodating host, and was extremely responsive. I would definitely stay at Happy Trails again on my next river visit.

We had a delightful Christmas holiday with the family. The house was right in the river with a gorgeous view and only 15 minutes from the ocean. I would return again.

The removal of all very visible weeds and clean up of landscape is recommended. The weeds were so tall in one area it completely blocked our view of the river. Even though we had direct river access and has various kayaks and canoes at our disposal it proved to difficult to launch boats in water due to lack of launching deck. We had a very unpleasant and extremely dangerous experience trying to attempt this one time and felt it wasn’t worth the risk so we had to access river from Johnson’s beach which required us to pay a fee to access the beach and another fee to rent boats. The whole reason we rented a river access location was to avoid having to do this.
