The room was small but comfortable. The breakfast above the quality expected. We did not take advantage of the amenities, but the guests seemed to be enjoying their wine around the outdoor fire. I also noticed many children, so The Cottages are child friendly. I would reccomend the Cottages.

My biggest gripe with the Cottages: the service. I arrived late at night, eager to kick off a very short, mid-week getaway. The receptionist started off the night by yelling at the night watchman because he hadn't started the registration process as soon as we walked in. Meanwhile, as the person who's actual job it was to greet guests, she... More

We stayed one night mid-July, for $111 with tax. The cottages are easy to find, right on River Rd., and have beautifully landscaped grounds with cottages on either side, large pool, and fire pit. Adorable cottages!! We had #8, one of two cottages in our small building, and we shared a front deck, but we each had a small wrought... More

We had booked a king bed studio cottage but the booking website had made an error and what they booked for us was actually a queen bed cottage. This was not the fault of the Cottages on River Road and they did not have a king available. We were disappointed because we are more comfortable on a king bed, but... More

This place was wonderful all around. They have great rooms. The grounds are very well maintained. I will definitely stay here again. The firepit was a big plus. There is plenty to see around the area. The continental breakfast was good and helped save a few bucks. It's rustic which was the best thing about it.

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at the Cottages. We were lucky enough to have stayed "at the top" (my phrase) of the main group of rooms. It was well worth the daily climb: complete privacy and seclusion with a lovely view. Even an outdoor shower. The suite was very nicely appointed. We loved the nightly "s'more fest"... More

Yes, the dream jar was on the night stand with eye patches and ear plugs and night tea. The room had a mini bar, frig, wine glasses, small sink and Keurig coffee maker. The shower was decked out with luscious towels and toiletries. There is even a basket with Q-tips. The bed was comfortable. Each place is a cottage. At... More

I recently returned from a July 4th weekend getaway with my family of 5. We rented a 2 bedroom cottage and I must say we will definitely be back! The cottages are so cozy, very comfortable and big enough for my family. The grounds are so peaceful and family friendly- a pool for swimming, a fire pit, grassy grounds and... More

My three year old and I recently took a quick trip to Guerneville from SF. Although Cottages on River Road doesn't have river access and it is located just outside of "town" in Stumptown, it was still the perfect choice for us. After visiting Armstrong Redwoods State Park, we went to the Johnson's Beach area in town to splash in... More

The staff at the Cottages was exceptional and made us feel very welcome even after a mix up with Expedia. They went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful experience. The cottages are beautiful and spotless. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!
