Reed October 2021
We enjoyed our stay at Mallard Manor. Quiet and peaceful great living room kitchen and deck area. Store within walking distance. Nice chill factor.

Alezah October 2021
Beautiful spot right on the Russian River in a cute cozy cabin. Super easy to find and get into with the owner’s detailed instructions.

Lilly October 2021
Beautiful house with a gorgeous view of the Russian River. The space was very comfortable and private. We found the kitchen to be equipped with everything we needed to cook our meals, and the bedroom comfortable and tidy. Kayaks were an awesome touch to our stay and easily accessible. The house is about 1 mile away from a small market and cute coffee shop, and totally walkable. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful getaway!

Justin September 2021
A must stay for sure! Clean and feels like home, what a great way to explore the Russian river! Staff were informative and extremely responsive! What an amazing stay!

Barton September 2021
This was a lovely small cabin with a private deck nearly overhanging the river. The cabin is well appointed (not luxurious, but very comfortable) with all of the charm and decorations of a lifetime of loving visits. There are large bright windows on all sides that face the river. The deck faces northeast with an immediate view to and up the river. Above and behind the cabin are large redwoods, shading the deck nicely after midday. Although the patio table can set four and the sofa is a sleeper, the place is best for two with a single large bedroom with window seat on the river, a tiny (albeit very clean) bathroom, and comfortable seating for three in the living area with a fireplace and cable tv. Many games and puzzles remind of many happy family memories. Although we didn’t use them, there are a dock and two kayaks available for use on the quiet waters and almost no current to speak of on the river. It is very private with only one neighbor (across the river, > 100 m away) that can even see the cabin; the close neighbors on either side are separated from view by fences and bushes. Overall, nearly perfect for our quiet anniversary celebration.

Ari September 2021
What a treat!! Mallard manor was much better than anticipated! The layout is wonderful for two people. The setting right over the river is idyllic, and the dock is a delight. We were worried it would be dry, given the drought, but there was still enough water for a paddle. It’s on the shady side of the river which was dreamy in the heat. It’s the perfect place for a dog to watch the birds and enjoy indoors and out without concern. We will definitely be back!

Sharlene May 2021
Very cute & great view, beautiful surroundings!

Stephanie May 2021
Mallard manor is a great little spot to stay. The dock and kayaks are a great treat. It's also so nice to have a dog friendly home, though you need to make sure your furry friend doesn't snoop around the steep under portion of the home.

Nancy May 2021
Absolutely unbeatable location. Access to the dock and kayaks made our trip! With that, some of the furniture within the house has seen better days.

Kristin April 2021
The Mallard Manor is a very quaint cottage right on the Russian River. It’s private with its own dock. What a lovely place to stay.

Nichole April 2021
Beautiful space--the location cannot be beat and having a window seat with a river view is essentially all I need to be happy. Great communication, quick responses for an issue that came up, and really open and light-filled space. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a Russian River getaway!

Guillaume March 2021
Unbelievable location, cosy house...with a fireplace. Open and full of light. Fabulous deck above the river. We loved it.

Michelle March 2021
This was an ideal quiet and qaint getaway. Beautiful unbroken views and sounds of the river, trees, and nature all around. I would be happy to come back for another respite. Thank you!

Victoria March 2021
Excellent place to relax.

Cassandra March 2021
Amazing weekend getaway, very relaxing and super cozy!

Bryan February 2021
A wonderful place on the River. Quiet and well appointed. Can’t wait to return for another visit!

Rob February 2021
Very peaceful and beautiful. And ducks!

Joshua December 2020
This getaway is a little place along the river with some awesome views and a relaxing deck. It’s very secure and I loved that it was dog friendly. The restroom is on the small side, but the bedroom nice and it’s an overall comfortable place. They were also able to help us whenever we ran into any issues or had questions.

James November 2020
Amazing location right on the river. Was great to just wake up every morning, sit on the deck with some coffee, and hear the birds chirp. It is actually really easy to walk along the river bank at Patterson point which is less than a 5 min walk away. So many great towns also close by, but you still have that remote and secluded feeling. My wife and I have been to Sonoma county many times, but this was one of the best and most unique stays we've ever had. We would definitely come back! 5/5 stars!!

Scott November 2020
If you are looking for a place to getaway from it all, especially during Covid-19 this is a great place. Not much to say for the town, or the people, but if you are looking for an interesting cute city, there are other places to see.

Grace November 2020
Amazing view of the river. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and there were thoughtful touches throughout the house. Would definitely stay here again.

Sushil November 2020
We went there to spend our anniversary. Clean, quite, cozy place. Everything matched the description. Very quick response to all my messages which was nice. The only negative would be that bathroom is a bit small but other than that everything was great.

Mollie October 2020
We enjoyed our stay. The setting is gorgeous and it is a short drive from some really neat eateries, wineries and shops. What a neat area ! Remember to bring your own essentials (coffee, shampoo etc) as there are limited options close by.

Jodi October 2020
It felt very clean

Senia September 2020
This place was great, everything was just how it looked in the pictures! It is perfect river getaway for two with the private dock, kayaks, and all

Lee September 2020
Amazing place! Great location by the river. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay.

Katie September 2020
This place is so great! My boyfriend and I had a great time, and we will definitely be back next summer. The house is so cozy and the views from the deck and the dock are incredible!

Danielle September 2020
Great location with direct river access and close to downtown Monte Rio and Guerneville. The outdoor deck offers a peaceful space surrounded by trees making it easy to relax while listening and watching the river below.

Callum August 2020
An amazing getaway! We spent every day on the dock by the river, enjoying swimming and the kayaks. The deck was perfect to relax on and watch the sunset. Great communication with the host and great location.

Troy July 2020
The house was an amazing location

J July 2020
This was a perfect getaway and a quiet spot on the river. Already planned a return!

Krisztina July 2020
Just what you see in the pictures. A lovely space well distributed with nooks and epic views and a dock for a quick access to the river. It is not a modern place but it is cozy and fun and well stocked. We had one request for more blankets and someone dropped off two the following day. It’s a one bedroom but feels spacious and well laid out and the deck is big with spectacular river views. Morning dock jumps are a must. We loved it.

Jessica February 2020
What a beautiful spot to relax as well as serve as a launchpad for Russian River wine tasting. We were perfectly comfortable with our dog and were immediately conspiring to return!

Chelsea February 2020
Such a beautiful home! The house looks exactly as pictured, however it was larger than I had anticipated for a one bedroom home. The views were amazing, the deck is wonderful in the morning and the general feel of the home is so cozy, and comforting. We saw seals hunting fish in the river below and had a wonderful time with activities in the nature surrounding us. We go to Bodega bay and Guerneville all the time, but it was a great treat to stay in this beautiful house this time! If I had to mention any issue, it would be the very minor issue of cobwebs in each room except the bathroom, this was not a huge deal to us as we expect some spiders and webs in a cabin in the woods. We would love to stay here again and can’t wait for our next trip!

Russian River Getaways Heidi February 2020
This cozy home located on the river we was a perfect getaway. While the setting is very private please note it is not a completely quiet and remote location so you can still hear traffic a little bit. Amazing spot though!! Really enjoyed the fireplace!!

Darrell January 2020
A cute place for a couple with a wonderful view of the river.

Frances Paola January 2020
We loved our stay! Thank you for making everything easy and for preparing the space for us. It was sparkling clean! We did our best to leave it clean and organized as well. The patio and fireplace were our favorite spots.

Geraldine January 2020
nice space with beautiful views. nice space to getaway from the city, sit on the deck and drink some coffee. we did complain about cleanliness, smokey smell inside the house and lack of hot water, but the hosts were really responsive during booking so will hopefully be responsive to those concerns too. all in all, if those issues were addressed, i’d come back.

Response from Russian River Getaways January 2020
Thanks for the review and feedback, Geraldine. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for any cleanliness issues and will correct this with the housekeeper. A slight smokey smell is typical in small cabins with wood-burning fireplaces, especially in winter when they are closed up most of the time; just part of the package. We couldn't find any problem with the hot water after your stay, but, next time, please know that you can call us during your stay so we can help with this sort of issue. -Rachel

Samantha December 2019
Cute, quiet and cozy cottage - feels like it could do with having some of the decor cleared as a small place can feel cluttered quickly. Also complementary coffee goes a long way with guests, bring your own coffee.

Farzaneh December 2019
The cabin is beautifully located on the river, clean and relaxing. I want to go back.

Bonnie December 2019
Very cozy and excellent view. Peaceful and private.

Thao November 2019
Perfect spot next to Gurneville, Occidental, etc where there is some night life, delicious restaurants, yet still nestled away enough in the woods for a secluded getaway. Amazing view of the river and open windows in the master bedroom where you are welcomed by natural sunlight and fall foliage (at least, during the time we went).

Victoria October 2019
Mallard Manor is the perfect place if you are seeking a very comfortable, private home on the river to relax and feed your soul. A beautiful deck on the river and lots of light in the open living area from large windows added to our enjoyment. All the appliances worked well and kitchen is well stocked with all the pots and pans needed as I enjoyed having the time to cook. A scenic drive following the river takes you to the beautiful Sonoma coast. We had a wonderful time here- just wish we could have stayed longer.

Julie October 2019
We had a wonderful time at the Mallard house - such a peaceful location, right on the river and very quiet. We spent a lot of time looking at the birds traveling up and down the river and admiring the trees and the unbelievable about of stars you can see at night. The place was very clean and had all the appliances/cutlery/etc. we needed to cook in. There was a great bar restaurant called Highland Dell about a 15 minute walk away when we wanted to go out. The area is really close to Armstrong woods and stunning ocean beaches. A lot of wineries in the area too. I would definitely recommend!

Kirsten September 2019
Cute older river house on the river. Great location on the river and close to town. We loved the dart board and kayaks. So nice to spend the weekend with our dog at the river. Thanks!

Cindy September 2019
Wonderful peaceful place. Well designed and easy to manage. I would definitely stay again.

Maya September 2019
We had a lovely stay here and would highly recommend this place to our friends. The location was great. We sat out on the porch facing the river watching the ducks and egrets. We even saw a heron one of the days. We took advantage of having access to the dock and used kayaks. The place was very welcoming and cozy.

Jenny August 2019
Best location in Monte Rio, cabin was right on the river. Cabin was tucked away allowing for peace and quiet. We had a wonderful stay.

Sarah August 2019
Nice location right on the river. Having two kayaks on site is wonderful. Hanging on the deck is great and there is even a dart board. Cooking supplies (pots, pans, utensils)aren’t the best, but for a short stay it’s not a big deal. Be prepared to give everything a little wash first. Since there is no dishwasher, things have a bit of a film.

Colin August 2019
Great location and very peaceful, well situated between the coast and Sonoma wineries. We had a great time here with our English golden retriever, very welcoming for those traveling with their dogs!

Mark June 2019
A wonderful location with a beautiful view of the river.

Jess June 2019
This place was absolutely amazing!! Perfect - right off the river, fishing off your own private dock. Covered in trees, amazing patio with double French doors to open up the home to fresh outdoors. House is perfect, so cute! Fully stocked kitchen, house had everything we needed, plus! I can’t say enough, perfect weekend getaway. We will definitely come back!! A+!

Jim June 2019
Cute, comfortable place, very clean. Remote spot, very quiet. Very nice deck overlooking the river.

George June 2019
Cute little cottage right on the river. The birds fly above the river at the same height as the deck, putting on a daily show. Having access to your own dock and boats means you can have fun on the river on your own terms and it was plenty deep enough for swimming right off the dock. We spent a long weekend cooking on the grill and sitting in front of an open fire. Loved the location - it's peaceful and quiet, yet Monte Rio is walkable and Guerneville Safeway is a short drive away. Pretty much ticked every box we have for a good Russian River getaway, would stay here again.

Christina April 2019
Wonderful place to stay for our long weekend. Spent much of the time on the deck taking in the view - it felt very private. Great location. Comfy bed.

Cheng April 2019
The place is in a nice location, but the place itself was dirty when we arrived :( We spent time cleaning the patio from spider webs, dust, and tree branches. The amenities such as spices for cooking were old. For instance the salt was very clumpy. The pans were oily and old. Probably the worst part is the couches were were dusty so my boyfriend had allergies and was sneezing the entire time. I personally don’t mind older furniture as long as they’re clean and dust-free. This was sadly not the case at this Airbnb. :(

Response from Russian River Getaways April 2019
Thank you for the feedback Cheng, we appreciate it. We will address this with housekeeping. Thanks! ~Maile

Angela February 2019
My husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Mallard Manor. The house is in a great location overlooking the river and we are already talking about a return during the summer when we can use the dock and kayaks!

Aaron February 2019
Amazing views with a cozy cabin feel

Sarah December 2018
We loved our stay at Mallard Manor. This is a private and detached home with stunning views from every room. It's clean, stylish, roomy, and well maintained. Every part of the home is lovingly decorated. The fireplace was a treat. The bedroom features a dreamy window seat with a view of the river.

Paria November 2018
Had an amazing stay there. We will be back.

Joshua October 2018
Cozy place right on the river. Quiet. Relaxing getaway.

Alexander October 2018
This cabin was great for our quick weekend retreat! very warm and cozy, would stay again!!

Laura October 2018
A truly hygge spot! We loved sitting on the deck overlooking the river, watching birds during the day and stars at night. The fireplace made for extra cozy evenings and the kayaks were great fun!

Stephanie September 2018
Mallard Manor is a delight. My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and absolutely loved it. The place was cozy and warm, and the mattress is superb. I don't know when I slept so well! Lots to do in town, including farmers markets, hiking in Anderson Redwood state park, and kayaking right at Mallard Manor. We will definitely be coming back. One word of caution, and this may be obvious to most of you, but was lost on me - the doors lock behind you, both front and back, so be careful not to lock yourselves out! I did, but luckily had my phone with me so I could look up the code on the app. Enjoy!

Caroline September 2018
Wonderful home tucked in the redwoods. Such a great location on the river. Close to great restaurants and wineries. Perfect for a romantic getaway!

Lynn September 2018
This rental is set in a gorgeous riverside location with a great deck with grill and dock with kayaks! The country decor is charming in a very spacious 1br. I rented this with my mother and ended up pulling out the sleeper sofas for some separation. No complaints on the bed but the sleeper sofa mattresses are very worn and uncomfortable. I wouldn’t count on these if you need another spot to sleep. Otherwise great value and space for the river. Thanks!

Response from Russian River Getaways September 2018
Thank you Lynn for your feedback and we are so happy you had a nice stay at Mallard Manor! Unfortunately that sleeper sofa is not meant to be used and the house is advertised as one bed which is the one in the bedroom. We do have air mattresses available at our office for future reference. We hope you are able to come visit again sometime! ~Maile

Nina August 2018
we had a wonderful experience, would highly recommend!

Misty August 2018
This home is beautiful but there are issues with cleanliness that I felt were unacceptable. The moldy shower curtain was bad. Really bad. When a home costs almost $300 a night ($1170 total for 4 nights), it is unfortunate that details like a moldy shower curtain are overlooked. In addition, I don’t believe the bathroom soap dispenser was filled with hand soap, we used our own after the dispenser ran out on the second day of our stay. The towels are shabby and smelled like men’s cologne which made me wonder if they were washed. The couch smelled like body odor and we covered it with a sheet we had brought with us. The bedding was very stained and needs to be replaced. It’s such a shame because the location and the house itself has so much potential but it needs some attention to be worthy of the price tag. The deck is amazing and we really enjoyed that so much. I hope these things are corrected for the next guests. Also use caution if you bring your dog. My husband went down to the river to swim with our dog on leash. The neighbor’s dogs came over, since they were running loose. Our dog felt cornered and my husband was not able to swim.

Mallard Manor was charming. Not sure what "River Getaway's place" is.

Great little spot right on the river - a perfect getaway!

We had a wonderful stay at the Mallard Manor! As we were driving back to the Bay Area, I was already dreaming of that view of the redwood trees and the river! The morning sun is gorgeous, the view is to die for and it’s a stone’s throw away to the Monte Rio river beach and the Sonoma State Park beaches as well as being close to Santa Rosa and the wine country. Would love to stay there again!

Beautiful location right on the river and very cozy. Will definitely stay again

This is a lovely home by the Russian River. Pros: + Terrific deck and view of the river. So peaceful and serene. + Clean, great looking home. Very cute and charming on the inside. Lots of natural light. + Fireplace! It was great to have one. + Kitchen is well stocked with all the basic amenities. + Great communication with River Getaways property mgt. service that manages this home. Cons: - The mattress in the bed felt old and not very comfortable. I'd suggest replacing it. - The sofa bed has also seen better days. It's not great to sit on and less comfortable to sleep on. - Sheets are also a bit old and need replacing. - No heater in the bedroom, just one in the living room that heats the place up. - $145 for cleaning fee was a bit too much for a 1 bedroom cottage especially since the instructions told us to start a load of towels and we also washed all the dishes (no dishwasher). I think $678 for 2 nights (total fees, including Airbnb fee) for a 1 bedroom home with sofa bed is a bit steep.

This is the perfect spot for two people to get away. Very quiet area right on the river and in the forest with a great deck for enjoying a glass of wine while relaxing in a recliner chair...perfect. Photos are accurate and the communication with the host was perfect. Check-in was fast (self check-in with code) with easy to understand instructions. Location is easy to find, but you should arrive during daylight if at all possible. Highly recommend.

Great spot, had an excellent weekend getaway.

Rasmus April 2018
Great house on a quiet street. Private location truly on the river. Has morning sun on the deck, but no evening sun. Convenient parking and a short drive from restaurants and hikes.

Daniel April 2018
My wife and I were traveling around Sonoma county and the river getaway was a fantastic spot to unwind. The house is super cozy and we loved cooking and lounging on the deck. Fairly quick drive out to the coast as well as into town to get supplies.

This was wonderful! Exactly what my husband and I needed. We were happy and comfortable the entire time. Most importantly, we got the privacy we needed to kick back and relax. We would absolutely stay here again--no question!

Sylvie March 2018
Great place to stay peaceful and relaxing!!

Maria February 2018
Very cute place with easy checkin instructions and wonderful communication. It was a joy to sit on the wonderful deck and relax to the sounds of ducks and the river.

Jeanne December 2017
The perfect cozy getaway. It was our second Holiday at The Manor and we’re looking forward to our next visit!

Brian May 2017
Mallard Manor is the perfect place to take in Russian River and the surrounding redwood trees. The views from the deck are inspiring and showcase the wildlife along the river. The small home has everything ready for cooking and relaxing in front of the fire. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

I hadn't been to the Russian River area before so I wasn't familiar how close things were based on a map. It's very accessible to town, Safeway, vineyards. This property is right on the water (beautiful) and in the redwoods (stunning). Even a foggy day was gorgeous. Being able to BBQ and read on the deck was lovely. The neighbors are very close, so you can hear a lot (including construction) - but when it's quiet it's very relaxing. The host was very attentive and accommodating, and it was super easy to book last minute. Loved this place!

Michele February 2017
Cool and cozy little house on the river with quick, easy access to the ocean and 15-20 minute drives to most other towns located by the Russian River Valley. Door code access made checking-in and out very convenient!

Kevan February 2017
Fantastic location and all the amenities you need for a quiet, beautiful and relaxing getaway. Bring your own pillows and firewood.

Hilary December 2016
Quaint and charming, but not a great choice for winter. We went after Christmas for a short getaway- weather turned out to be very cold with nighttime temps of 30 degrees. The poor tiny heater in the cabin couldn't keep up and even with a fire, we spent our three days wearing our outerwear indoors and piling on blankets. It seems like the amenities of the cabin could be much better enjoyed in warm weather- dock, kayaks, outdoor deck, etc. Beware that there is no dish washer or garbage disposal (I'm sure this was in the listing description and I just missed it). This makes cooking much more of a chore, especially since you need to leave the kitchen as you found it. The cabin was clean, but overall decor was a little tired, including having very well worn sheets. The check in and out process was smooth. The location was great- easy access to the coast, Russian river wine tasting and healdsburg.

Cute place but could be cleaner.

Jon October 2016
We had a very nice relaxing time in this cozy little cabin. It was the perfect size for us and had everything we needed. It was a comfortable little place for our stay and we got to enjoy a rainy day inside by the fire as well as a nice sunny day out and about. Keep in mind that with the dense trees and foliage there are lots of spiders and cobwebs. We would definitely stay again.

Robert September 2016
The place was beautiful .

Darcy July 2016
What an amazing place! Cottage was lovely and the views were incredible. You feel immersed in nature. The kayaks were appreciated, we loved getting out on the river. Thank you, we hope to come back and will recommend place to others!

Matthew May 2016
What an incredibly charming house with amazing views right on the river! The house is flooded with natural light. The deck is an amazing perch situated high off the river with redwoods towering overhead. The dock wasn't in yet as it's early season, but it would have been a perfect private entrance to the river. Having a working fireplace made the evenings extremely cozy. The WiFi signal was very strong, which was good since there is no mobile connectivity (at least on AT&T). The neighborhood seems to be a mix of rentals, vacation homes, and locals. Our interactions with people were pleasant. The entire area is extremely dog friendly, and our Gold Retriever enjoyed it as much as we did. The house does not have a yard for your dog to roam, but should the dock be in there's plenty of room for swimming. I would absolutely stay here again,

Randy April 2016
Terrific house. Thanks!

Alex March 2016
We had a wonderful stay! Cozy house with great fireplace, beautiful location in the Redwoods. Would definitely recommend.

Tom January 2016
The listing was exactly as describe. Awesome place right on the river! Everything you need for a few days of R&R. Easy booking process and quick communications from the host. We'll be back!

Suzanne December 2015
We loved Mallard Manor! The house was super charming and cozy. It had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing getaway including a fully equipped kitchen, a wonderful wood-burning fireplace, games, books, movies, etc. The view from the house across the river and trees was heavenly. We loved the location in Monte Rio--just minutes from the coast and Russian River wine country. River Getaways was super responsive and very easy to work with. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely stay at Mallard Manor again!

Zach December 2015
My girlfriend and I were looking for a quiet weekend away and Mallard Manor over delivered. It is an amazingly cozy cabin with everything you need. We brought our dog and she loved every moment of it. I can't wait to come back.

Jabu December 2015
This is a lovely little cabin with an amazing view of the river! My dog and I watched blue herons and egrets fishing below and a few brave souls out on the water canoeing. It was very clean and everything functioned well with all the cooking utensils, pots and pans you might need were available, just remember to bring your own sugar and honey for tea. We love the Russian River area and hope to stay in this cabin again sometime!

Roberto November 2015
It was a great experience, enjoy all the beauty the area naturally have to offer! the house is comfortable & close to town. We'll definitely came back.

Steven October 2015
