“We Love this Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We decided on a last minute trip to Guerneville. With our dog. This place was perfect.
The cabins are darling. We were in a studio towards the back.
Absolutely sparkling clean. They think of everything. The details, the linens, the comfy bed are five star.
The common garden area is very peaceful and beautifully manicured.
These are little close set together cabins right off the main road into Guerneville. There is noise. As long as your neighbors are considerate, it should not be a problem. If you have noisy ones I can see where it might be an annoyance.
The proprietor and his staff do their best to take care of any thing you ask for. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating.
The place is very dog friendly.
Lola definitely gives this fifteen tail wags!
This is not five star for luxurious, it is five star for comfort, value and service.
Everyone goes out of their way to make your stay terrific. It was a very nice place to return to after our Guerneville adventures.
We love this little town and it is the people that make it great.

Room Tip: Cottages at the back have less street noise.

I am very glad to have found these cottages,ours was spotless and spot on as far as the pictures of the rooms.Super vacation location wine, redwoods and ocean, all within a short drive. Great fire pit at night, a great way to meet people and learn of new places to tour the next day. To cold for the pool but it sure looked nice, well taken care.We loved Frank the cat.....

Room Tip: Did not get a chance to see the smaller cottages. but loved the bigger one , for little more money

We had a fabulous time and thank you for the warmest hospitality. The cottages are nicely decorated, warm and have everything you might need to feel at home.
The massages are out of this world and the breakfast is very good. We watched a couple of recent movies on the complimentary DVD and the Internet service was excellent too. Though we did not bring our animals we loved seeing some cuties on the property adding to the cozy feeling.

I'm glad we found this place as we enjoyed our stay in the Russian River Valley very much. We were only here one night but it was very pretty and well located. We visited the beach, the Korbel champagne cellars, some small local tasting rooms, and Armstrong Redwoods State Preserve. And we walked to a bar down the road that had an outstanding burger and fries (watch the traffic). Our cottage was very cute and comfortable except that, since it was late fall, the floor was pretty chilly and the heater was a little loud clicking off and on during the night. I didn't really notice the road noise but a neighbor's big dog got to barking for about an hour in the evening and again in the morning. I would stay here again. The courtyard is lovely, the s'mores by the fire were tasty (we had it all to ourselves), the breakfast was very good, and the staff were friendly, even a little zen.

We stayed with our two children, 5 & 7, for Thanksgiving. It's a really great spot. Very clean large rooms with nice linens, small kitchenette and big bathroom. The property is very well maintained and the best part are the smores when the sun goes down. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I would recommend The Cottages to anyone.

One of the best family trips ever! The staff was amazing. S'mores at the fire pit was so much fun. My kids had a great time and even my dogs were given special treatment! They had water bowls, treats and towels waiting for us when we got there!

Thank You!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Fortunately, we got a good deal to stay here. On the plus side it was cute, charming and quiet. I was actually surprised how quiet it was because the cottages are right next to a busy street. But they must have been pretty well insulated. I think it's a pretty nice place. The bed was fine. The shower was hot. And it was near downtown, which was also cute and charming. On the other hand, the heater was loud, the chairs in the room were broken and the biggest disappointment was that the lady working there did not start the fire so we could eat Smore's (the one thing I was looking forward to about staying there). It did stop raining so we asked if she would turn it on. But she said she would check the weather because if it rains again, the fire pit would turn into a big mess. We kept checking as it never rained the rest of the night. But no fire. Still it was an okay stay though.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room that's away from the busy road.
