I am very glad to have found these cottages,ours was spotless and spot on as far as the pictures of the rooms.Super vacation location wine, redwoods and ocean, all within a short drive. Great fire pit at night, a great way to meet people and learn of new places to tour the next day. To cold for the pool but... More

We had a fabulous time and thank you for the warmest hospitality. The cottages are nicely decorated, warm and have everything you might need to feel at home. The massages are out of this world and the breakfast is very good. We watched a couple of recent movies on the complimentary DVD and the Internet service was excellent too. Though... More

I'm glad we found this place as we enjoyed our stay in the Russian River Valley very much. We were only here one night but it was very pretty and well located. We visited the beach, the Korbel champagne cellars, some small local tasting rooms, and Armstrong Redwoods State Preserve. And we walked to a bar down the road that... More

We stayed with our two children, 5 & 7, for Thanksgiving. It's a really great spot. Very clean large rooms with nice linens, small kitchenette and big bathroom. The property is very well maintained and the best part are the smores when the sun goes down. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I would recommend The Cottages to anyone.

One of the best family trips ever! The staff was amazing. S'mores at the fire pit was so much fun. My kids had a great time and even my dogs were given special treatment! They had water bowls, treats and towels waiting for us when we got there! Thank You!!!

Fortunately, we got a good deal to stay here. On the plus side it was cute, charming and quiet. I was actually surprised how quiet it was because the cottages are right next to a busy street. But they must have been pretty well insulated. I think it's a pretty nice place. The bed was fine. The shower was hot.... More

I agree with all of the previous reviews that the Cottages are charming, that the s'mores fire pit is delightful, and the staff warm and inviting, as is the continental breakfast that includes healthy stuff like yogurt and fruit. Driving there was a bit of a challenge, but then I'm a timid driver that's intimidated by winding, two-lane-no-passing country roads.... More

I like this place. The cottages are clean and the garden is very well maintained and peaceful. The staff was very friendly. However, I recommend splurging for one of the bigger options if possible because our studio was very small and shared a thin wall with the next room. Although the couple next to us were not particularly loud, I... More

Very nice property and great place to relax and stay for a few days. The hosts are great and the evening fire and smores are a nice way to give the guests a chance to mingle a bit. The property sits by a fairly busy road, but the noise isn't bad, particularly if you stay in the inner courtyard.

My husband and I, along with our small dog, stayed here for one night recently. The cottages surround a wonderful garden. The studio we stayed in was really sweet (lacking storage/closet...). Our bed was very comfortable. The hostess lights a fire in the central gardens at 8PM & leaves the makings for S'mores. Just great. Our dog had a welcome... More
