We wanted to stay in Guerneville as it was closest to the Korbel Winery, whose Brut champagne was our wedding toast bubbly. We stayed in a Beautiful room, which was ready for us when we arrived about 2 hours early- and it was lovely. Four poster bed, view out to the gardens, lots of nice amenities in the bathroom, Nespresso... More

The Applewood is a beautiful mediterranean/spanish style Inn that was built in the 1920's. Four buildings surround a lovely gravel courtyard with beautiful flowers and fountains. It definitely feels like an oasis in the Russian River Valley. The pool is small but a perfect place to relax, and for those who don't have a private hot tub, the one by... More

Just a couple of days before I knew I could take a break from work, I looked for a cozy small town. From tripadvisor reviews Applewood Inn looked great, but it was even better in person. We loved the ambiance, European style layout, swimming pool, champagne welcome and all the wineries we could visit nearby with free tasting. Looking forward... More

Nestled among the redwoods, this Inn echoes the ambiance of a European country Inn. The staff is gracious and friendly. The grounds with pool, hot tub and gardens invite one to linger and relax. The rooms are well appointed and comfortably elegant. Do not miss the amazing chef and his creations. As a bonus, there is lots to do in... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Applewood. We loved it. The Inn is secluded and situated amongst towering redwoods. The grounds are well kept, flowers and beautiful fruit trees dot the property and the smell of jasmine follows you everywhere. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Comfy beds and a fireplace in the room made it... More

We've stayed at Applewood twice in the last nine months and I was sad to leave each time. It's a beautiful place with lots of tucked away spots to sit and relax. The owner, Carlos Pippa, is delightful and his staff is superb. Chef Jamil Peden is truly gifted. His dishes are not only delicious but creatively prepared and presented.... More

Loved our stay at the Applewood Inn. We had the room Cortona with the hot tub outside and loved our evenings sitting out under the stars totally at peace. The breakfast was amazing- French toast is to die for!! Definitely will one back!!

I booked this place through a Groupon and man was I glad I did. My friend and I were looking to have a writer's retreat and when we saw this place I knew it would be perfect. It was really easy to make a reservation and of course they welcomed us with wine tasting and a tour of the location.... More

The Applewood Inn far exceeded our expectations--it's indeed the lover's inn and a perfect get-a-way to relax, refresh and re-fuel. My husband and I plan to return for sure. The Applewood Inn is a beautiful property surrounded by giant redwoods. It's elegant and offers many luxury touches. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Katie with a welcome glass of... More

We arrived late at 8:30 p.m. and there was no one to greet us. We were hungry but knew of no place nearby to get dinner so we went to bed hungry. Breakfast was elegant and very good. Hard to get phone service.
