Support our local eateries and get a take-out from the Blue Heron in the quaint village of Duncan's Mills. This is the oldest tavern on the Russian River, and was a key place in the town during its years of supplying redwood to the Bay Area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Sightseeing

Look up and remember that these trees have seen it all and are still standing... and they just survived the 2020 Walbridge fire too. Head to the amphitheater to do some yoga or reading, explore the trails, and find the peace among these giants.

The edge of the world...California style. A beautiful remote town with its own lighthouse, museum and 1920s theater (still operating and presenting drive-in movies). Interesting fact -- in the 1880s, an 11-year-old girl Nellie Welch was responsible for the town's entire telegraph system!

Unique safari experience on the West Coast. Drive your own car or join a tour to view various herds of African hoofed animals, roaming freely, ending with a giraffe feeding session! Tours start from $25/person, and reservations are required. About 90 minutes drive from Tara House, along the fantastic coastline -- combine with a meal stop in Gualala or Point Arena. For younger kids, the Safari West experience in Santa Rosa may be preferred as there are more chances for close-up encounters.

Bring layers and comfortable shoes

We are up in the hills so even in warm weather it can sometimes get cool at night. The house is well-heated, but it can be cold outside. A lot of the area around the house is asphalt, so supportive shoes are a must. Indoors, we appreciate people going shoes-free or wearing slippers.
