This was my 4th trip to Guermeville and I have stayed at a different place each time. This is one that I will definitely be coming back to. The grounds and pool are beautiful and the property is within walking distance to anything in the town. We stayed in Cabin #18 and it was so nice, with a lot of... More

The Woods is lovely, peaceful, nearby to so many things. The staff is warm and friendly, and the accommodations are very comfortable ... I love sitting by the pool all afternoon. We always meet interesting people there.

My Brazilian boyfriend and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and had a DELIGHTFUL experience at THE WOODS !!! We experienced a totally relaxing environment poolside, NO loud music, but wonderful poolside banter among the diverse guys at the pool. SERVICE outstanding as owners Verna and Mike attentive to all guests needs !!!

I was up from San Francisco with a friend for a couple days of R&R and was looking for a cheap motel. I'm so glad that I chose The Woods as I got much more than I bargained for. The whole experience was wonderful and just kept getting better. There was ample off-street parking. The grounds were gorgeous, with an... More

I escape San Francisco a lot over weekends and head up to Guerneville and The Woods is usually my preferred destination, whether it be for the day relaxing at the pool or a weekend getaway. This resort is very well maintained and has a great variety of rooms to choose from - from very simple and cheap to very well... More

I read about this wonderful place in Westways Magazine. It lived up to it's great review and more. We arrived late at night and my sister was not happy about the bed. The host was able to upgrade us to a different room. Well worth the extra money. We had a wonderful relaxing 2 days. Would definitely come again as... More

This was our first visit to the Woods, and we'll definitely be back. We opted for one of the Cabin rooms, which proved ideal for a long weekend retreat from the city. The room had a nice gas fireplace that quickly warmed it up during the cool nights, a large comfy king bed, a kitchen with refrigerator (perfect for chilling... More

We spent two relaxing, happy days at the Woods in February. We were the only guests, but the owners and staff were welcoming and available, despite the slow season. Our room had a small but very adequate kitchen, and we cooked our dinners and lunches and one breakfast, which was not only cheaper, but a very nice way to make... More

This was our fourth year in a row staying at The Woods, and we'll be going back for at least the next four. Quiet atmosphere around the pool is a huge plus; not to mention that it's saline and not chlorine, which makes it even nicer to skinny dip in, since it's clothing-optional. Michael and Verna take a lot of... More
