My wife, our toddler, and I went away for the wife's birthday. Scored massive points! Our room was phenomenal. Clean, warm...one bedroom for us, one for the baby. At night, while the baby slept, we hit the fire pit (with the baby monitor in hand) and had some "adult" bottles. The morning started with a great continental breakfast (included in... More

On spur of the moment we decided to visit the Russian River and California coast in Sonoma County. We happened to see a vacancy sign on Cottages on River Road and they had a cottage for two. Talking later, we both had had the same reaction when we walked into the cottage - we had never walked into accommodations that... More

Cottages on River Road is the Bay Areas best kept secret for a weekend getaway! It is only one hour from San Francisco and perfect if you want to visit wine country but don't want to bother with the Napa or Sonoma crowds. It is tucked into the redwoods and provides a peaceful and relaxing getaway from the cit, yet... More

A few of my friends and I decided to visit Sonoma/Russian River Valley for our final trip of 2013. The cottages had one vacancy left for us and what a wonderful stay it was! We were greeted by friendly staff and an adorable cat named Frank. The property is so cute with an intimate courtyard of beautiful plants, trees and... More

A lot of care and consideration has gone into the Cottages on River Road. This is evident by the garden setting, suitable furnishings in the room, nightly campfire with marshmallow and chocolate treats, 'real' wine glasses in rooms and generous continental breakfast included in the rate that included boiled eggs, bagels and cream cheese and an extensive tea selection. Our... More

Great place in a small town. Close to Healdsburg vineyards and the coast. We stayed in the "treehouse" suite. Almost a small apt! Up a couple of flights of short steps, but removed from the road noise of the lower cottage locations. Deanna & Gwynne were gracious hosts, campfire and s'mores every night.

Our plan landed a little late at SFO, they accommodated our late check in. Cute cottages, clean, feels like a comfortable home. The do a campfire every night with s'mores! Keurig, flat screen tvs, beautiful location! If we're back in the area, we'll be staying here.

This small hotel's staff made all the diiference in the world. They were very knowledgeable about the area and took the time to find out what we were interested in seeing and doing. DeeAnn and Gwynne treated us like royalty. The best part was the fire pit in the evening. It coaxed people from their cottages and created a great... More
