The welcome letter says they want you to make this your "home away from home". Their attention to detail shows that they mean it. WiFi is very spotty in this town, so they've included a cable to connect your computer to the internet. Instead of the typical pre-ground/packaged coffee, they have beans and a grinder. Also an espresso maker. King-size... More

We loved our stay at Monte Rio Cottages.... it was private and quiet and felt like I was sleeping right in nature with all the trees. I definitely want to come back again and stay in this cozy cottage "Serenity" #5. The price fit our budget! It was a bit tight but the website clearly stated that it was a... More

Arrived to find the place empty. Our cottage - "Serenity" was all of 100 sq ft. with no place for luggage, or any surface to place anything. The room was heated with a small noisy wall heater, but fortunately the electric blanket worked well. The room and bathroom had less space than an average trailer. In summer the outside shower,...

This was our second time coming here. Came last year in September too. Walking distance to river and everything in Monte Rio. Twenty minute drive to Ocean beaches. Ten minute drive up river to Guernville. Location location location. To top it off they treat you like family there and it is a beautiful place to stay. Your own cottage with... More

We stayed here last week (Aug 4 - 8) for 5 nights in the Stellar Jay Cottage. The good points are that the grounds are very nice and it is quiet there. The not so good points are: (1) the cottage had obviously settled in such a way that the floor is very much tilted; as the cottage interior had... More

We had a business meeting in SF and started out by going to the Sonoma Valley. With many of the hotels in the central Sonoma area unavailable - we went to the Cottages in Monte Rio. It is a little ways away from the "action" but in the middle of beautiful redwood forests. It is about a 30 minute drive... More

My recent stay at the Monte Rio Vacation Cottages was wonderful. The Hummingbird Cottage is beautifully cozy inside with the fire going and refreshing in the hot tub on the deck! The deck is large and the garden was cute even in November. The most comfortable bed gave us very restful sleep each night. Monte Rio is a welcoming quaint... More

We had a wonderful time at the Monte Rio Cottages. They are a little out of the way but the atmosphere is excellent if you like privacy and the outdoors. I wish we could have come earlier in the fall and used more of the outdoor areas like the dining table on the patio and the fire pit. We did... More
