We stayed there in May and we got the corner room. I think they call it the couple/romantic room. Our room was away from the street so it was quiet and also has a balcony with the view of the river. The room was clean although a little dated. Some of the rooms are being renovated and they look great... More

Came for two nights and stayed six, everyday we just couldn't leave. Couldn't be more adorable, great service, gorgeous, total relaxation. I'll definitely be back. I LOVE it here. The grounds are so beautiful, the trees and breeze are intoxicating.

We stayed at Rio Villa Beach resort for a girls get away! The front desk gals were very helpful as we were going to be early. They suggested we enjoy the grounds and river while our room was being cleaned.The grounds are beautiful and we sat by the river and my friend painted and I read. Very peaceful! Upon checking...

For all the times my partner and I have gone up to the Russian River, we never stayed overnight before staying at Rio Villa. The challenge has been that most places require a two-night minimum, so you have to either buzz up there after work or take advantage of a three-day weekend like we did on Easter. The website is...

My wife and I were there this past weekend for a quiet getaway. The front desk clerks are extremely friendly and helpful. When I asked for extra pillows for my pregnant wife, the clerk left her desk to get two pillows and delivered them to our room right away. The clerk was very knowledgable of the area, and offered dining... More

Stopped in late one night, and the staff ( new ownership ) were very pleasant and set us up with 2 rooms. We had a total of 3 large dogs with us, they were welcomed. After our first stay, we called ahead and went back up again the following week ( as we were looking at property in the area... More

Rio Villa is fantastic! As a former Sonoma county resident of over 10 years, I was really looking for a place that truly captured the hospitable, laid-back feel of the Russian River upon my recent return to the area. I stayed at Rio Villa in November 2014, and I can think of no better place to get the true experience... More

Entering the parking area, one is surrounded by trees, falling and changing leaves and cute cottage type units. In the morning, stepping outside the cottage, the smells are wonderful and the walk down to the river through the property is relaxing and refreshing. I am not sure about the claim of a resort and not sure about the price asked... More

This was our second time at this property. (Not sure it qualifies as a resort…) Several rooms are dog friendly. They are called "cabins," but are attached. Lovely property on river-side that ambles right down to water's edge! The owner set up the fire pit outdoors and all we had to do was light it. We enjoyed the entire area... More

This is a quaint place that is reminiscent of the 1950s. The accommodations are, at best, comfortable. We have stayed there about 5 times in the past over the 4th of July holidays. There is an excellent fireworks display very close to this place. Fireworks are again displayed the day(s) after in nearby Guerneville. The meager offering of kitchenware is... More
