Really nice place with helpful staff. The cottages give you excellent privacy. Our room was well cleaned. Price is a good value relative to the quality of the rooms. Location when considering activities is superb. Lots of excellent local dining, including Michelin starred Farmhouse Inn in Forestville. Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve is less than 10 minutes away. The California... More

The evening campfires make this place stand out. It is a nice way to meet fellow travelers. The sheets were unbelievable. They were so fresh and good quality. Unexpected treat. Breakfast was sufficient and they are working on a breakfast room as now you get in a line to toast your bagel. A little awkward as everything is on little... More

We decided to spend a few days in the wine country. Since we had not stayed in the Russian River area for a long time, we decided to stay there. The Cottages on Russian River was a real find! Pluses: friendly greeting, well appointed, clean and inviting rooms, scent of redwoods from the trees on the property, evening campfire, continental... More

Cute cabins, and friendly owner, warm and welcoming atmosphere, grounds are nicely kept, and the cabins are immaculate. It’s nice to sit around and chat with others at the nightly campfire. More than adequate bathroom amenities. And the beds were very comfortable. A few little things went wrong: dead battery in the remote, light bulb burned out, but all cheerfully... More

We chose this place because it was located in the right spot traversing through that part of California. But it turned out to be a find! The cottage was comfortable and everything was good, but the best part turned out to be the people who worked there... very friendly and very accommodating. We loved it.

We had a great stay at The Cottages. I didn't feel that the location was great, and it was real close to the road, but they are clean, cozy, free wi-fi, the beds are comfortable and the staff is great. We stayed in Cottage 12. It has 2 bedrooms and a bath. 2 twins and a full size bed along... More

Stayed 2 nights solo. Hosts very nice, free upgrade. Had to switch rooms because I changed my mind and wanted to stay another night, and they helped move my stuff. Not the most quiet place, as it is right on the main road, but I think its in a great location for redwood lovers! Campfire and smores were fun. Would... More

This cottage has no access to the river and is steps from the main road and the traffic is louder than my city apt. If you want to relax and have peace and quiet during the day to write and read, don't stay here. It is a great place to crash after a day of wine tasting or something.

We stayed at the Cottages for 4 nights. I absolutely loved staying there. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. It may be off the beaten path (which is what the husband and I like), but it is close to many wineries, the Armstrong Redwoods and highway 1. In the evening we hung out around the campfire... More

This was my second time that I have stayed at the Cottages in Guernville. What a great place. The staff makes you feel at home. They are full of helpful suggestions from wineries to visit, places to eat, to hikes in the area. The rooms are homey and clean. The grounds are well maintained and the pool area is inviting....
