We just stayed a week in the Hummingbird Cottage and loved every single minute of it and didn't want it to end. The room is beautiful and romantic! The Hummingbird has a huge deck, private hot tub and a really great space with a really great vibe! GREAT vibe! Lots of flowers and plants and I was so stoked to... More

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.

Should win a design award for fitting the WC, closet and "kitchenette" all behind the bed headboard. We used the little chimney pot outdoor woodstove whatever you call it, cooked on the gas grill and ate at our private patio table. Very nice and very very quiet on weeknights at the end of March.

You guys are the best! We are also going to be adding that outdoor sink (as you suggested). It seems like a very good fit for the cabins! Thanks for staying, and thanks for "getting" the cabins! Hope to see you soon! More

We spent two magical night in Heron Cottage. The cottage was charming and fully equipped with everything we could need. The large deck was great to relax in the afternoon. And the amount of tech loaded into such a secluded location was astounding. Would definitely come and stay again.

My wife and I have been searching for the perfect little "Home Away from Home" for a few years, and we have found it. We stayed here last year, and returned this year. The Heron Cottage is cozy, comfortable, and spacious. The Bedroom is seperate from the LIving Room and Kitchen (which is fully stocked). TV has Netflix and HBO-Go.... More

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
