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

We made our reservations (and paid) online using Expedia but when we got there the lady didn't have any reservations for us. Apparently they were changing systems and it was lost. I had to give her all our reservation info and she was able to call expedia and find it. The good thing is that she had ONE room left... More

Such a great place to stay wish we did for more than one night. Owners/managers are very friendly and accommodating when we checked in late and they still reserved our cottage. Room was clean and cute cottage style with actual metal keys not room card key. There is a community area in the center of the cottages with a fire... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Cottages. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting nestled in the redwoods as it is. The staff is very pleasant and helpful and seem to always go the extra mile to ensure your stay is the best it can be. If you find yourself in Guerneville, make a point... More

My husband participated in the 2016 Ironman/Vineman and we were fortunate to find the Cottages on River Rd. Excellent service! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The cottage was clean and equipped with the necessary amenities. The area is secure and offers an inviting atmosphere. Would highly recommend to friends and family

Have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. Small boutique type cottages with a pool and fire pit in the evenings. Clean rooms with free wifi. The staff are excellent and very helpful, Lots of good restaurants and winery's in the area and about 30 minutes to Bodega Bay.

We stayed here a few days before a triathlon my boyfriend was attending and the wait staff was very friendly. The room was quite small, but they had great little touches to the room. It was decorated very cute and there were ear plugs in case the road noise bothered and an eye mask for the sun light to sleep... More

The cottages are just lovely. Clean, well appointed and charming. Susie, the darling lady who greeted us when we go there was just fantastic! She was warm and kind as she briefed us on the continental breakfast and s'mores at the fire pit. A very interesting lady herself, she is just as interested in you, your family and pets. We... More

This is an ideal place to stay and is conveniently located to downtown Guerneville.The cottages are nestled in the woods and right off Hwy 116. Our one bedroom cottage was very clean and had the modern amenities needed. A frig, stove, microwave, dishes, utensils, cutlery, etc. allowed for cooking meals. Comfy bed and sofa bed. Nice and very clean bathroom.... More
