Stayed here for 2 nights in Sept. on holiday from the UK. What a great little place. Our room was clean and tidy, bed very comfortable. Tasty scones for breakfast. Have to say the staff we met were very friendly and helpfu. The views of the river are marvellous. My only disappointment was that the restaurant and bar were closed... More

Like all of Monte Rio, the Village Inn is a gem waiting for you to find it. The food is on par with good Bay Area restaurants but less expensive, and the service is relaxed but attentive. It has one of the most serene views you'll ever experience at a restaurant; you're surrounded by redwoods and overlooking the Russian River.

A wonderful place to stay with welcoming staff and delicious food. There's often the smell of fresh baked bread. Our room had a balcony overlooking the Russian River and the room is decorated very warmly. I highly recommend The Village Inn - both the hotel and the restaurant - and Monte Rio as a place to stay when visiting the... More

We had such a wonderful dining experience here! Lana was our server and she was hilarious. We ordered the escargot to start and they also have this really delicious warm bread that comes out with your appetizers. Each entree comes with a soup or salad and both my dining partner and I got salads. They were huge! In fact, so... More

I recently got married at the Village Inn. I had never even been to California before so all of my arrangements were made online and over the phone with the owner, Mark. Everything from the venue, to the service, to the food was better than I had even envisioned. Mark really went out of his way to make sure that... More

The owners were so happy to help you with whatever you needed. They had inside and outside seating. Great view of the river. The rooms were very comfortable. We had the best sleep. There were rooms in the main house and rooms across the garden. The garden was very well maintained. No loud parties allowed. We came after dark and... More

What a place!! A perfect setting on the river, a view of the river at any table, wonderful food and bar! Being at the The Village Inn makes us feel like we are in France! And at night time, the inn takes on a 'glow of romance' and 'uniqueness thru-out it's location! And the food!! We have NEVER been disappointed... More

We wanted to try something new and so headed to the Village Inn and Restaurant in Monte Rio, CA. We did make reservations, not knowing if it would be crowded. The food was wonderful: I had the Salmon and it was cooked perfect; my husband had the pasta dish special, and said it was very good and that he'd definately... More

Beautiful and serene outdoor sitting with view of Russian River. Food is equal to the experience. One of the better places to take someone special for for that special occasion.

Delicious clam chowder! Grilled shrimp was good, however the slaw and noodles beneath it took away from the great flavor of the shrimp. Would either order noodles on the side, or rice.
