Ken and Lynette have run the resort solidly for years, keeping us and many others coming back time and again. A lovely property on a hill above Guerneville, with pleasant gardens and redwood trees makes for a great gay and straight-friendly retreat. Only concern is that with everyone automatically connecting with their multiple mobile Wi-Fi devices now, the Highland's Wi-Fi... More

This resort is cozy, comfortable, warm, and totally inviting! The bungalow cabins are simple and not overly decorated with just enough panache to keep them interesting without being stale or sterile. Hint, get a cabin with an oversized tub- what an amazing way to relax after a long day of shopping, wine tasting, hiking in the red woods, driving up... More

It's hard to put into words how welcoming and calm Highlands is. We have visited two times and cannot fault it. The grounds are quiet, relaxing and so well kept. The pool is so relaxing and our room was perfect for a few days of quiet in the Redwood forest. The breakfast is freshly baked and you can enjoy it... More

Great accommodations, central location, clothing optional pool, and friendly hosts make this place a winner. Our cabin seemed to have been recently updated and the bed was fabulously comfortable. Sorta like summer camp in that it's in the woods and there's no TV in the cabins - so be prepared when the pool and lounge close in the evening. We... More

Glamping at its uber best. It feels like you are camping in someone's backyard, and it literally is. Cabins in the front and expansive lawn/yard areas in the back. The outdoor shower by the pool is one of my favorites elements of the place. Staring at the stars was my pastime. Did not have the feeling of anticipation, if you... More

Cabins are comfortable but very basic. Thin walls, no TV or room phones, but still gives a nice feeling of being in an outdoors and good views of the redwoods. Close to town which is also a convenient location. There is a large pool area which allows nude sunbathing and a hot tub area also allowing nudity. Rooms include a... More

My partner and I have stayed here many times over the last several years and have always enjoyed the location, the delightful owners and the great location. The pool is one of my favorites, anywhere. We have also had great Guerneville stays at other local resorts, but our advice is to check here first if you are a gay couple... More

My partner and I stayed here over three days. The place is amazing. Friendly owners, comfortable beds, amazing hottub in the woods.... This place is like heaven. Wineries are literally about 4 minutes away. I recommend the Westside Drive Wineries....

We have just returned from another wonderful stay at The Highlands Resort.This was our 15th stay at this magical place. We could travel to Paris in the time it takes us to drive up there from our home in Southern California but we prefer to go to Guerneville so that we can enjoy the beauty, peace and quiet of "The...

My partner and I booked three nights at The Highlands for the Thanksgiving holiday. We had enjoyed two nights in the garden suite earlier this year, so we were excited to be returning. We chose a more expensive room this time (cabin 10). Nice layout, comfortable couch, convenient kitchen etc... until it was time to go to bed. The bed... More
