Our group has had such a good time each year, we book ahead for the next summer. Very, very relaxing. Hanging out at the river's edge, kayaking, swimming, fishing,BBQing. The setting and the hospitality is the best.

I just spend the night at this wonderful inn. I stayed in this room alone and felt very very safe. If you are looking for fancy this is not your place but if you are looking for relaxing and peaceful this is perfect! River view is charming, quiet, peaceful and secluded. I had lunch and breakfast on the little porch... More

The River View Garden Resort is a perfect spot to enjoy the fun and beauty of the Russian River. Jay, the owner, is super friendly and the perfect host. The cabins aren't fancy but they provide all the perks you'll want or need. We spent this Labor Day weekend there, in cabin 19 on the top floor. There's a small... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for a wedding at the venue next door. We couldn't be happier with our stay. You really can't beat the beautiful view of and proximity to the river. The room was clean and spacious. Yes, the property is older, but that's part of the charm! The best part of this place was... More

Everything that counts at the River View Garden Resort is comfortable and clean, starting with the vintage king-size bed. We were in town for a wedding and this place was ideal. True, the microwave and the stove didn't work and the manager had to come in each evening to fire up the gas heater, those were minor inconveniences. Our unit... More

...but the property shows every minute of its 65 year age. It is a mishmash of Goodwill and Walmart. The pro is that it's clean so if the choice is between sleeping in your car or here, choose here. But it's not cute rustic and the Rio Vista is a much better deal. (Oh, and the pictures on their website... More

Warm and hospitable family-run small hotel with direct access to the river. The owner Jay is as personable and accommodating as they get. The views and the air are incredible. Quality time spent in mediation. Highly recommend!

Don't think I've met anyone as genuine, kind, sincere, and willing to go the extra-mile as the owners of River View Garden Resort. From the initial phone call to make a reservation, until the time we checked out, we were absolutely pampered and spoiled. Nothing was too much trouble. In this day and age, people like this are far and... More

We have been there twice this year. The rooms are clean and comfy with views of the Russian River. The adjoining decks are a nice place to sip tea of enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day. The resort has a beautiful, large lawn area with plenty of shade for hanging out and catching up on... More
