Stayed here for two nights early December. Had rainy weather, which made the cottages all the more cosy (and it made a tree fall down in the pool). The area is absolutely beautiful with the landscape going from vinyards to redwood forest to the rugged Atlantic coast. For me the cottages were a base from which I could explore the... More

It's a lovely spot to stay for the pricing. Stayed in cabin with 2 units for one night. Our room shared a wall with another party's room; can hear through that wall pretty good due to wood construction, no carpet to dampen noise. Amenities: chocolate, wine glasses, coffee maker, wifi. Breakfast foods included fruit, yogurt, pastries. The courtyard is really... More

Booked a cottage after scoping out a few places close to downtown Guerneville. The lovely staff provided a welcoming atmosphere and a top notch breakfast! The grounds are beautifully manicured and include decks/porches, a fire pit and a pool. We easily walked downtown on the side road that runs parallel to River Road. Easy stroll through the woods without any... More

Spent only one night - but definitely would stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a great family location or comfortable stay. We were in one of the two bedroom cabins with adult children and it was excellent. One queen bed and two doubles. Yes it's near the road - but the noise was minimal at night. The staff... More

You can't see the cottages from the road, so venture inside and take a look. The staff was so welcoming and helpful. The cottages are rustic, pleasant, and comfortable. We had one with a kitchen and living room and bedroom on the right. Didn't notice street noise. Breakfast included apple fritters, our favorite guilty pleasure! We loved our stay. Be... More

Location: These cottages are nestled in a quaint town 5 minutes from a quiet redwood forest and 25 minutes from the coastal beaches. Ambience: terraced, zen-like feel. Cleanliness: exceptionally clean. I have never woken at a hotel and felt as comfortable in my room as I do at home, but I did here. Timing: my husband And I stayed midweek... More

We had driven through Guerneville on our way to the coast before and I found it a very charming town and liked how close it is to some of my favorite and most scenic coastline; so, I wanted to stay there to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. I'm very glad we found the Cottages on River Rd - charming place,... More

I think we would have been happier if we had read previous reviews and asked for a room off the main road. As it was, our room was located next to the brightly lit sign advertising the place, so we spent the night trying to sleep in half-light. If there had been a pull down shade in addition to the...

As others have said, this is a 'bona fide' gem. The staff are most welcoming and gracious. The grounds are beautiful. Our cabin was cozy and super clean. The mattress was supremely comfortable. The continental breakfast was quite good, including really wholesome breads, assorted yogurt and hard-boiled eggs. The only negatives are: you've got to have ear plugs and be... More

The cottages are very nice, clean, comfortable, and we booked a king studio unit. It has a king bed, a sink in the room, a refrigerator, a Kuerig Coffee Maker, laminate floors, 2 chairs, and of course a separate bathroom with a nice shower. We had a covered patio outside with 2 chairs and a table. There is a fire... More
