My partner and I recently stayed 4 nights here. Our room was very accommodating and the bathroom was recently updated. The linens were very nice as were the ammenities in the bathroom. The TV if you wanted to catch up on the world was great. My only complaint would be around the bed being way to soft and caused us... More

First off, my girlfriend and I reserved the smallest cottage (last minute booking) but we still found it to be perfect. Beyond the basics of being clean and comfortable you could tell they thought out the space before building. There was a giant bathtub (worth it to pick up some bubbles) and great decor. Also, the outdoor space had just... More

We were very pleased with our studio cottage. The room was very comfortable (great bed, top quality linens) and extremely well appointed- fridge, microwave. Keurig machine, bar sink, including thoughtful touches like wine glasses and a corkscrew. We loved the large bathroom with fluffy towels and a great shower. Customer service was excellent. Gwen checked us in and thoughtfully gave... More

We stayed one night at the cottages on river road this weekend and it suited us well, considering we were needing something located in between wine country and the coast. This is a cozy little conclave of cottages tucked beneath beautiful evergreens. The accommodations were pretty simple, but they also added some great little perks like a great coffee maker,... More

This place is extraordinary!! From the WONDERFULLY helpful (and hilarious) staff, to the BEAUTIFULLY decorated individual cottages with such thoughtful little touches, to the DELICIOUS breakfast, to the AMAZING s'mores around the campfire at night... This place was a haven after a long day wine tasting and sightseeing in the gorgeous surrounding area. We've been on the road for over... More

I was delighted to find such a charming place to stay near Guerneville - beautiful accommodations, thoughtful touches everywhere I looked. Everyone on staff was very gracious and helpful. But my favorite part was the evening fire around the garden fire pit - a chance to roast marshmallows and get to know fascinating people from all around the world!

The cottages appear to have been built quite a few years ago. But they have been excellently maintained (or refurbished) and are kept extremely clean. Better than many more-recently-built motels. Since they do not share a common wall with neighbors, there is hardly any noise, even though they are on the main road through town. If your travels take you... More

The cottages are comfortable and well-appointed. The common areas around the cottages are beautifully landscaped and welcoming to sit outside and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Downtown Guerneville is close by with charming restaurants, a nice grocery store and small shops. We enjoyed the breakfast and the evening fires with the added treat of marshmellows... More
