know this review is WAY overdue, but here it is nonetheless. Halloween weekend in Guerneville is epic! Finding a room while you are there however can be daunting. I called all of the usual gay resorts, and found that everything was booked up for the weekend. However, I did find "gay friendly" Riverlane Resort, and booked cabin #15. Everything about... More

14A. The grounds are charming and full of coastal plants. I could see how spending a week here would be a wonderful vacation. The kitchen was large and well appointed. The bedroom was small and the bed was soft. All the couches in the living room are meant to be slept on, so you need to have a pillow behind... More

We stayed here for 6 nights over a Guerneville party weekend. The location and value for money paid is excellent. Cabins are cosy and rustic but have a comfortable bed and ensuite facilities. Good warm and powerful showers. We particularly liked the lovely river view from Cabin #15. But like the previous post Mindy the Resort Manager will bend over... More

There are so many good things to say about Riverlane. The reviews talk about the lovely manager; it's all true. She is accommodating, friendly, and available to help. But you're not going for the manger right - you're going for the beautiful pathways, the amazing plantings, the cozy - and yes, rustic cabins, the fantastic heated pool and hot tub,... More

I cannot say enough good things about Riverlane! It is truly a gem in Guerneville. To start off, they have the sweetest, most considerate, responsible manager around. She goes out of her way to help you feel comfortable and ensure a pleasant stay. She keeps the property clean, safe, and quiet. The grounds are simply beautiful! Flowers blooming, serene atmosphere,... More

My group had such a nice experience and will definitely come back. We reserved 4 cabins for our youth soccer group playing in a tournament in Sebastapol. The location was outstanding, adjacent to Johnsons beach, within a block of the main street, shops, restaurants and bars. Loved the private gated parking in the back. Nice open lawn area leading to... More

I have stayed at Riverlane resort with my husband, friends and family on numerous occasions over the years. We love the location; a stone's throw from family-owned Johnson's beach, Safeway and organic market on the same block, or minutes away from a meander or hike among stately redwood trees in Armstrong Woods. Golf is nearby; the coast is about a... More

"Resort" could not be further from the truth at this dilapidated establishment. Charging $150 per night is really a joke. It looks like it was built in the fifties and has not been refurbished since.There were three of us staying there. There was a queen bed and a mattress on the floor that we had to unfold and make up... More

My daughter and I stayed a month on a weekly rate as the finishing touches were completed on our home. We loved staying here! Over the course of the month we stayed in cabin 14, 16 and 3. All the cabins are uniquely designed, clean, warm and accommodating. The management went out of their way with kindness towards us making... More
