Enjoyed my stay at Applewood again. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast and dinner we had were delicious, the location is excellent for wine tasting and exploring the area, and the staff are really nice. This is a very well run and nicely maintained property.

Applewood Inn and its restaurant are delightful, and worth the drive to whatever your destination in Sonoma and Napa. The amenities, the restaurant, and the breakfast are all excellent. Staff is friendly and seeks to be accommodating -- our group of 8 was very pleased for the second year in a row!

Applewood was recommended to us and fulfilled our expectations. They were very accommodating in recommending things to see and do as well as asking questions to help us design our wine tour. Would definitely return in the future. We are sorry our nights at the Inn did not correspond to the nights the restaurant was available since we heard from... More

The wife and I were in Guerneville for my brothers wedding. He setup the reservation for us and we are glad he did. The room was very spacious and clean. The fireplace really helps with setting the mood. The provided breakfast was wonderful and we liked how they had many choices if you didn't want the meal the special that... More

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
