This was a jewel of a find! Small cottages that were tastefully decorated and included a microwave, small refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker and wine glasses! They also provided special nighttime teas, eye masks for sleeping and ear plugs! We really didn't need any of these, however. Very comfortable bed and linens. A beautiful courtyard to gather with friends or to... More

These Cottages are a great place to stay, especially if you're a non-smoker as smoking is not allowed anywhere in the grounds. Fire pit and s'mores available every night. The only thing missing is a hot tub.

This is second time we stayed here and it was just as wonderful.... Both times! It's so clean and has everything in the cottages you could possibly need. The Bon fire at night with s'mores is so cool! The staff was always there if we needed anything. And the REDWOOD TREES!!! Fabulous setting!

Had to come to Guerneville for a wedding and this place seemed most reasonable. Granted it was August but the place was really expensive. We had the highest cottage above the pool and it was cozy. Only problem was the road traffic. No AC but it wasn't too hot. Smores every night are great. Nothing to compare it to but... More

It seems odd to give a little "rustic" set of cottages on a road in the woods a 4 star review, but they deserve it! Rustic isn't the perfect description, because though older the rooms and premises are all well kept and quite well-appointed. Everything you would expect of a good hotel/motel in this area - big flat TV, wifi,... More

My wife and I needed to do some business near Santa Rosa and just have a nice mid week get away for a couple of days. We decided to stay here for two nights during the week. What a great place! The cottages where very charming. We stayed in unit 1 that had a mini kitchen and our own separate... More

The cottages are absolutely adorable and immaculately clean. They serve a continental breakfast and have a nighttime campfire with all the s'more fixings you want. They have indoor and outdoor wine glasses in every room, which is important to some of us. The view from our room was beautiful as the cabins are nestled in the redwoods. There is no... More

The owners are very involved in their cottages and it shows. The cottages are spotlessly clean. The linens and towels are very good. Breakfast is included and it is high quality. Not a hot breakfast but excellent. In the evening, the fire pit is lit and the owners provide good old fashioned American "smore making" and people bring their wine... More

I brought my mom here for a little getaway and was very impressed with our little cottage. The owners did a very good job with all the little touches to make it feel like home away from home. Only downside is it's off a very busy road and the pool was way too cold to use. It really needs a... More

These cottages are far from your typical cottages in Guerneville. They are meticulously maintained and very nicely furnished. Most are located around a large green quad where at one end there is an open pit for nightly s'mores. We had a lovely two bedroom cottage. The bathroom is very large. I would try to get a cottage away from the... More
