I rented a two bedroom cottage with my two children in March for my birthday. They provide fresh juice like cantaloupe and honeydew melon in the morning. There is a cozy center fireplace to sit and roast marshmallows and make s'mores at night. My kids really enjoyed the place. Was a clean and simple environment surrounded by the redwoods. Just...

We could not have been happier with the amenities at this small resort. The owner has provided everything to ensure the comfort of his guests. I especially loved the eye cover, Sleepytime Tea, and earplugs provided in each bedroom for us light sleepers. The cabins were updated and spacious. Great job and kudos from a traveler who really admires innkeepers... More

The owner was amazingly friendly and welcoming and went out of her way to help us out with a small problem (we had forgotten some important paperwork and she allowed us to use her computer and printer). When we left, we forgot a... More

Rarely have we stayed at a place which "knows how to do it" as well as Cottages on River Road in Guerneville. From check in to check out, everything went smoothly and was totally enjoyable. The suite was spotless. The surroundings were lovely and beautifully maintained. The pool was delightful, just the right temperature and so clean, and NO CHLORINE,... More

My husband booked this for a trip with my brother and his wife. As a getaway from the chain hotels and a place to start out our quiet mornings before heading to some winery tours. We had such a wonderful experience, we met people from all over the country and some from other countries while sitting around a communal fire... More

It is ideal for a relaxing... More

We just needed a place to crash in guerneville on our way south and were lucky to get the last available cottage. The proprietors haven't missed a thing. So many thoughtful details. Absolutely charming, and the setting is gorgeous. So lovely that I wanted to delay out departure but they were booked. A few days after we got home they... More
