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

The personal touches they have put into this adorable boutique style cottage is amazing! You wake up to a fantastic continental breakfast with fresh watermelon juice and delicious organic coffee. The rooms are decorated adorably, and the beds are so snuggly and comfy, I'm usually disappointed in the beds at most hotels, so this was a lovely surprise. Their customer... More

The staff was delightfully friendly & helpful, and the accommodations were beautiful, with great interior design. We loved meeting other vacationers at the nightly s'more campfires outside in the gorgeous courtyard. It was a great place to exchanging tips about which of the surrounding wineries we should visit and which to skip. A beautiful redwood forest and the coastline were... More

The location was perfect and close to wine country, redwoods and the coast. Cottages were clean and neatly decorated. The King size bed was very comfortable. Staff was wonderful, especially Frank, the Cat!

We recently spent three days here and found it convenient for Bodega and Tomales Bay and also the wine area of western Sonoma county. Far more cost effective than staying in the Healdsburg area. In addition, eating in Guerneville was a surprise with several interesting restaurants. The cottage was clean and the staff was friendly. River Road was noisy during... More

The cottages are beautiful and clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is in the middle of everything - wine country, red woods, the coast. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience here. I would definitely stay here again - who doesn't want s'mores by the fire at night!?

We recently stayed here and really enjoyed it. We were driving from Southern California to Northern California and decided to try someplace new. We loved our room, which was a studio, and especially that there was a small kitchenette. Gwen, who checked us in, could not have been nicer. She had a roaring fire going out in the fire pit,...
