Perfect anniversary destination. Beautiful location nestled among the redwoods and right by the Russian River. Very clean, and we'll kept with a gracious staff. Wine tasting upon arrival with a local winemaker which was a real treat. Within walking distance of Guernville. The restaurant was excellent, included breakfast couldn't have been better. Excellent value!

The Applewood is truly an oasis. Wether you are I search of a secluded bedroom for privacy, a cozy nook to read a book, a hot-tub to hang out in with friends or a court-yard with a 3-tier water fountain this is the right place. On arrival Chelsea gave us the grand tour and was VERY helpful in recommending both... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Applewood. The courtyards are beautiful and the breakfast at the restaurant is top quality. The staff was very helpful and we couldn't have enjoyed our beautiful room "Pistoia" any more. If you go keep in mind the main building is about 100 years old which adds charm in a good way but don't expect... More

A wonderful cool and calm sanctuary on the Russian River near Guerneville. The staff were excellent, great attention to detail, and breakfasts delicious, freshly prepared, different menu each day and flexible to dietary requirements. Lovely pool and outdoor spa pool. Our loss was we were there for the 2 nights of the week their restaurant is closed (Mon/Tues). High recommend.

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
