I was looking for a cozy, self catering place to stay along the Russian river, but didn't want to be near the main road - (surprisingly hard to find). Initially I booked one of the Monte Rio cabins - on arrival it turned out to be a lot smaller than I expected with an outside shower (this was made clear... More

We stayed at the Serenity cottage one night and the Huron cottage the next. The Serenity cottage was really everything we needed.... small but cozy, comfortable and the electric blanket was a special nice touch. Everything we could ask for was provided ahead of time and the staff was very cordial and made sure we knew they would do their... More

We had a horrible experience at the Monte Rio cottages and checked out the day after we arrived. We stayed in what can only be described as a shed with a bed squeezed in it and a toilet next to your head and an outdoor shower. We did manage to have a look at some of the cottages which came...

My husband and I (and dog!) stayed in the Hummingbird cottage. We absolutely loved how relaxing, clean, and quiet the space was --- everything from the hot tub, spacious deck, and cozy living space. We appreciated how organized the pre-departure emails were, and the simplicity of a smooth "self check-in." This location is perfect for accessing the river, Jenner beaches,... More

My husband and I stayed in the Hummingbird Cottage in August. We found it to be spotlessly clean and conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the river and the town center. We ran into complications with our sleeping arrangement (our fault entirely) and the hosts absolutely could not have been nicer or more helpful. The hot tub is... More

We had a wonderful, comfortable stay with our family of 4. Full kitchen, private hot tub, super comfy bed, serene surroundings, apple trees full with apples.. to name a few perks here... Short drive to Jenner and its beaches. We loved it here! Thank you owners for taking a great care of your property and guests. We are planning to... More

The cottage was exactly as advertised, nestled between redwoods along the Russian river. I stayed here with 2 friends and we all thought the place was great. The place is well stocked and has plenty of amenities, including a hot tub, two relaxing patio areas, gas grill, well equipped kitchen area and a pretty extensive movie selection between apple TV,...

We loved the Hummingbird Cottage and all of the amenities. It was an easy walk to all that we wanted to see and do in Monte Rio. The hot tub, deck, BBQ, wifi and Apple TV all contributed to a great stay.

I spent two nights in this clean, quiet, serenely decorated space. The owners are gracious and available for questions. The garden is nicely appointed. I would stay here again. I was going for a family wedding and needed an economical space to stay.

If we did not like it there we wouldn't keep coming back. We really enjoy every stay at Monte Rio Cottages. Best location for our visits to beach, winerys, and our family in Rio Nido. Our dog loves it there too. Very beautiful grounds there,flowers,trees, and quiet. Staff is the best. See you next time.
