When we visit Guerneville, this is the place we most often stay. The cabins offer the just the right amount of amenities, while still feeling rustic. The hotel is surrounded by redwoods, but it is located just a few minute walk to downtown Guerneville. The owners are very accommodating and friendly. They offer a nice breakfast, with homemade muffins. We... More

Cutest little cottages, all redone. Fifties kitch kitchenette, relaxing electric fire, comfy bed, little deck that even has a kiddie gate to keep the dog in. Our dogs were welcomed and very comfortable, and the list of dog friendly places to eat topped off their comfort. We are straight, and stayed aware that it was our turn to be on... More

I/we always love it here every year. The wide variety of cabins and tent sites are offered by the super friendly staff. We're gay and they are str8 friendly. The str8's are also friendly and avoid the hot tub after dark, lol 😊

Exceeded our expectations. We had a private cabin which was very very clean and quiet. The grounds and pool are stunning. Really exactly what we needed for a few days. Would most certainly stay here again. Amongst big redwood trees with a very good continental breakfast.

We visit here when we are in Guerneville each summer. Stunning quiet secluded location. No music, no bar and no attitude! It's a place to totally relax and meet people (if you want). Ken and Lynette are wonderful hosts and rightly very firm about the kind of place it should be! Daily complimentary home-made treats from Lynette's kitchen are a... More

We recently spent a long weekend at the Highlands Resort to visit wine country. The grounds are absolutely amazing. Beautiful flowers and landscaping. You are in the midst of the redwoods, absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Garden Suite next to the pool. It was nice, spacious, and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rates are reasonable... More

Enjoyed camping there a few years back. (2013) Good Coffee and breakfast, friendly staff and nice fellow guests and a very pleasant pool area. My only complaint. The shower in the pool area had a spring-loaded faucet that you had to hold on to for hot or cold water. There was no in-between to make the water warm, making showering... More

Hi William L., Thank you for your review. I just wanted to let you know that we replaced that shower handle a couple years ago (probably right after you stayed). We do appreciate guest feedback and make changes and upgrades based in large part on guest suggestions. Thanks, Lynette McLean More

I have stayed at this property several times, most recently over Memorial Day. The cabin accommodations are great! We were in #7 which has a King bed, love seat, 2-person soaking tub, and gas fireplace on the wall above the tub, which does a good job of heating the room if needed. There is also a small kitchen table, sink,... More

Hi Michael, Thank you for your very nice review. We really appreciate your kind words. Memorial Day weekend is a lot of fun and we are glad you enjoyed yourselves. We'll check the temperature of the tub as we usually keep it at about 102 - 104. Hope to see you again soon, Lynette & Ken McLean More

A friend and I decided to schedule an overnight to celebrate my getting over the flu. A two-room suite seemed a good choice from the internet descriptions, and the Poolside Suite was available when we called, and the price seemed reasonable, so we booked it. Parking was easy. The Poolside Suite was actually attached to the main building, which also... More
