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.

The entire property is beautifully maintained in an idyllic setting. The service was excellent. The included breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the Cortona Suite. It is romantic with a fireplace, spacious and well appointed with lovely Frette linens. The patio is very private and tranquil with a fountain and private jacuzzi. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We had a beautiful room with a hot tub, fireplace and very clean and comfortable king size bed. We were greeted with a choice of comp Russian River wine and a friendly staff. Each of our three rooms came with a $50 gift certificate toward dinner. For what we five ordered, dinner was far too expensive exceeding $400. The cod,... More

Very nice facility with the best restaurant in the area located on site. That's a good thing since dining options are limited locally. Missed not having the light snacks and wine each night as is typically the custom at Select Registry inns. Location is isolated but in the heart of redwood forests and lots of great wineries.

Applewood Inn is an amazingly beautiful property with accommodating and professional staff. The owner, Carlos, made us feel very welcome and organized wine tours, food tastings and spa days. The rooms are superb and the grounds are very beautiful, including a garden with chickens and bee hives. The redwoods are very close by for a beautiful hike. Can't wait to... More

We stumbled onto this place by accident and were in for a wonderful surprise. Around every corner was a wonderful touch from the room quality to the pool. The best part was people who work there and gave each person their time and attention. They love working there and it shows! We plan on making this a yearly trip and... More
