This is our second visit to the Rio Nido Lodge - an annual family excursion to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday. We will definitely stay here for future travels to the Russian River area. 3 nights in a Courtyard King Room - quiet, peaceful, wonderfully comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast! Thank you Brett!!

We've been coming here once or twice a year since 2013 when the current innkeeper arrived. The reception is warm, the responsiveness is excellent, the breakfasts are yummy - and ample! - and the room is clean and comfortable. Since our last stay, Brett added two things we asked for to the bathroom in "our room" - a soap dish... More

The stay was lovely - Brett went out of his way to ensure I was comfortable and looked after, traveling alone. I would recommend Rio Nido Lodge - a great spot! It's 3kms from the center of town and close to wineries. For those that are racing it's close to the start and in the bike course.

This is by no stretch of imagination a 5 star hotel, or even a 3 star for that matter. BUT it is beautifully nestled in a woody area surrounded by redwoods. It's a very pretty setting. The owners serve up a delicious, cooked to order breakfast everyday. It would be great to have mini fridges in the room. It does... More

Tiphynee- thank you for the review, I remember the conversation about Dirty Dancing. You reserved our basic king room through a third party website. More than half of our rooms have refrigerators and other amenities but we do no put them all on third party websites. We do not put chairs on the deck in front of the rooms because... More

Wow...I mean, wow! My Dad was kind enough to book a couple of nights for us at this B&B the weekend before my wife starts Chemo, since we won't be going on vacation any time soon. Given we have spent about 14 hours a day for the last week in exams and doctor appointments to make sure we can treat... More

Jeremy- two days prior to arrival we emailed you a request for your arrival time and stated that check in must be completed by 8:00pm. I guess it was your father that noted in the reservation that you would arrive between 6-7pm. So as a courtesy I called you at 7:30 to remind you of the cut off time. You... More

My wife and I stayed overnight in April for her birthday. Brett and Yulia are awesome hosts, very welcoming and accommodating. The room was nice, comfortable and very clean. The lodge is located perfectly between so many places to visit. We were not steered wrong with the recommendation to visit the beautiful Armstrong Redwoods. Breakfast was included and cooked to...

We spent two nights. The room was clean, with a good sized bathroom. there was a large communal room outside our room where we could play cards. Every morning breakfast was prepared for us. You could select what you wanted. It was fresh and delicious. It was pre season so there weren't many other guests and the music wasn't playing... More

Swrdfsh21, thank you for your review. It sounds like you may have reserved through a third party website. You will find the best pricing and specials by booking with us directly. Also, most of our guests find great value in the cooked-to-order breakfast, possibly as a solo traveler you did not realize that value in the price. Brett Gibbs- owner More
