A cute little town tucked away between the ocean and the redwoods. Monte Rio Cottages are charming: very clean, lots of privacy, and attention to detail. This isn't a fancy bed and breakfast, but rather a comfortable, home-like bungalow that I found perfect for my needs. The entire property has several cottages in close proximity that would be ideal to... More

I booked a one-night stay at the last minute. When I arrived a friendly person was there to show me to my cottage, which was very nice, with all of the necessary amenities. The location is beautiful and is conveniently located a short drive to restaurants in Guernsville. I also went to Armstrong Redwoods and Sonoma State Beach which were... More

Booked the cottage for an overnight getaway for our anniversary and had an amazing stay. They upgraded our room, which was great. We stayed in the Hummingbird, the cottage was adorable and clean. It had basic ammenities. Surrounded by redwoods- It's a beautiful drive. Would definitely stay again!

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway to the hummingbird cottage. Quiet, private, clean, hot tub, cozy and visits from the resident cat made for a completely wonderful experience. Can't wait to go back. Thank you!

This is the perfect time of year to enjoy a short get away up on the river after the tourists have pretty much all gone home for the season. The Hummingbird was a nicely laid out studio with a small kitchen and bath and it had tons of deck space outside. Sitting in the hot tub in the early morning... More

We booked the day of and stayed in the Dallas Suite. There was a late cancellation and the kind folks at Monte Rio Cottages accommodated us with the utmost care. I really do love it here and will be sure to come back again and again. A walk to the water over the bridge, and jacuzzi right in our yard... More

My husband and I booked a five night stay in the Blue Jay cottage for our honeymoon! We absolutely loved it and highly recommend it (and have already) to couples who are looking for a great get away. We wanted something that felt secluded while at the same time being close to some civilization and that's exactly what we got!... More

I stayed two nights in "Camp Serenity" and it was just what I needed. And more than I expected. It was the perfect spot for a weekday retreat from the city. The cabin was so cleverly designed and just lovely. I can't say enough about the delicious experience of lying in a perfectly toasty bed with a wall of french... More
