This a wonderful setting anytime of the day or night. The larger room to the left as you enter with the feature fireplace is a more comfortable room for dinner after dark, whilst the long room with the river views works best during daylight hours. Great food, wine and service.

This little bed and breakfast along the river has deck and inside seating. I would suggest rooms across from the main house is best. Rooms were small. Shower is made for 6 ft and shorter people. Food was ok considering the area. A bit pricey and breakfast was coffee, hard boil egg and toast. No wifi coverage. Views were beautiful... More

My partner booked us a zipline trip in Occidental with Canopy Tours, then a night at the Village Inn in Monte Rio for my 72nd birthday. Ziplining through the Redwoods was exciting and our dinner and stay at the VI was wonderful! The owner, Mark, was friendly and charming, our waitress, Sarah, was excellent, and the food couldn't have been... More

My husband and I were there for a triathlon, which was w/in walking distance to the start of the race. It was well known around the area that there was going to be a race, however, when we asked the manager (?) if there was any place we could store our bikes, he was very rude, and just said no....

The idyllic setting of this hotel deep in the forest on the banks of the Russian River makes it a great place to stay for a night or two. This hotel featured in the film “Holiday Inn” in the 1940s and has still retained its period charm. The owners were very welcoming and our room was comfortable, clean and had... More

My husband and I visited the Village Inn and Restaurant for the first time on May 17, 2014, my 66th birthday! We will be coming here for the next 50 years!! Mark and Cathy, the innkeepers, are very gracious and set a positive tone for the inn. Our room was extremely comfortable with a lovely Russian River view, balcony, and... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. We have some friends that own a rental home here in Monte Rio and were hosting Thanksgiving. Found this wonderful Inn on trip advisor and chose it as our place to stay. We were so pleasantly surprised. From the moment we arrived we knew we had picked... More

We spent a long weekend at the Village Inn and would recommend it to anyone who would like to experience a beautiful setting along the Russian River. Our innkeepers, Cathy and Mark, were very welcoming and attentive to our needs. Nice continental breakfast each morning. We stayed in Room D and enjoyed our river view, open and airy windows, and...

My wife and I have a summer home in Monte Rio. We live near Houston where there are great restaurants. We were introduced to Village Inn and the proprietor Mark through friends. We have consistently had great service and great food at a reasonable price. Full bar, great entrees, great service (Thank You Lana). Recently for our twenty second wedding... More

These days it's difficult to find a dinner spot which is neither a production line chain or a five star budget-breaker. The Village Inn offers a well prepared, beautifully presented menu served by the most pleasant of waitstaffs and at a price which won't max-out your platinum card. This, plus the charm of a historic inn overlooking the Russian River... More
