We took our anniversary trip to the Russian River area this year. We stayed 2 nights at the Highland Dell Hotel because it was dog friendly with a very reasonable pet fee! $10 per night!! The owner is very accommodating and friendly. We were given a 2 bed suite that overlooked the Russian River. The room was very comfortable. There... More

Very comfortable beds, affordable accommodation, helpful staff, friendly atmosphere and dog friendly. Free hire of canoes for the river available. Saw an eagle fly past the window when eating breakfast. Very relaxing stay. Would recommend! Go to Rivers End for a fabulous sunset dinner if your are staying here.

Great breakfast to get you going in the morning for a day of exploring .You could hear your neighbors walking around and talking but most people were quiet after 11 pm .( except for the one lady...

I loved my stay at this cozy retreat right on the Russian River. Spacious room, and the food has German flair that was a nice surprise, as was the excellent hot breakfast that comes with the price of the room. The Hotel is close to the small town across the bridge. Be sure to check out what;s playing at the... More

Our niece had her wedding reception at the Highland Dell this summer (it was absolutely lovely) and we stayed at the hotel for two nights. Our rooms were clean and pleasantly-decorated, and the owners always went above and beyond, from quickly providing an iron, letting us know about the kayaks we could borrow, and serving up a great breakfast (eggs,...

First to start out, what it is not. It's not a 5 star hotel with every amenity you want. You aren't going to get a spa or super swanky room. What it really is: Super clean, comfortable bed, and a setting that fits the area. Rustic, real, and good people. Let's put it this way; if you find yourself more... More

We really liked this place and I can only echo what everyone else has said. This is a beautifully located old fashioned family run hotel. By old fashioned I don't mean it's out of date, in fact everything looks newly redone, but it has a simple, family run flavour that we don't see enough anymore. It's a great antidote to... More

This hotel is located on the Russian River and the scenery around is so beautiful. It is close to Duncans Mills, Bodega Bay and Jenner .. all places we love. Herb could not have been more helpful and offered to get us ice or anything we needed anytime. We found all the employees that we came in contact with to... More

We showed up in Jenner on Labor Day weekend without a hotel - typical. The nice people at Rivers End suggested this place and phoned ahead for us,. They had 1 room that was vacated early so we took it.It is a very cute little lodge - hasn't changed from about the 50s. It was clean and sufficient - at... More
