It's obvious that they go above to assure a nice visit and stay. Not new but well maintained. Right on the main highway but tucked behind a wall offering a feeling of walking into a hidden enclave. Would certainly stay again. Manager recommended dinner place that was superb.

I can't say enough great things about the cottages and the staff. Our group loved our first time stay here and we will be back. The cottages and the grounds were so adorable and clean! They all face the courtyard which made it easy for us to visit one another throughout the weekend. The location was perfect for wine tasting... More

We stayed in this lovely cottage accommodation for one night on our roadtrip, on off-peak season before christmas holidays. We were lucky to found this gem from booking.com for stop-over on our way to Mendicino. The cottages locate on the Russian River Road, few kilometers from Korbel wineyards and Guerneville town center, near to brewery gastropub, shop and gas station.... More

We stayed here for a few nights in December and hope to go back in January. The place is lovely, with homey touches Great breakfast, friendly staff and even friendlier senior cat (Frank) in the lobby. According to the receptionist, Frank "came with the hotel" when the current owner bought it. Our room was well appointed with special touches. The... More

We decided to stay here because it was just down the road from Korbel, which was one of our road trip destinations. The price was very good, the staff was super friendly and the complimentary breakfast was better than average. The only negative was the proximity to the highway. Although it was immediately next to the road, it didn't mess... More

We just can't say enough good things about this place! First off, we visited a week ago in the winter and paid pennies (I think it is a lot pricier in the summer months being so close to the river beach). Every detail of this property is charming. The staff was very friendly and shared a little of the history... More

Friendly staff, good breakfast, guest rooms were spacious, and the cottages are in a gated area. Road noise was not noticeable for us, even though this is just off the highway. They had s'mores and a bonfire at night, too! Guernerville is nearby with some recommendable restaurants; a very quaint town. Reasonable pricing for your stay.

It's nice when a little place goes the extra mile. extra soaps,lotion, earplugs and even night time tea. They do a small campfire the cutest little pet cat, just a fun quaint place. Best in the summer for the Russian River, but whent in the fall just as good.

We had a really great stay at Cottages on River Road. We only stayed one night on our road trip up the west coast but it was a lovely departure from the bustle of the Californian traffic and usual accommodations. We were upgraded to a King room cottage on check in. The room was modern, immaculate, and super cozy! Breakfast... More

I LOVE this place. I've been here four days and planning to stay four more days. The cottages are quaint and charming, sparkling clean, and the perfect Guerneville experience. When I walked in the staff was pleasant, warm and welcoming. The lobby is inviting, and friendly with fresh hot coffee or hot tea. Frank, the amazing and friendly house cat... More
