In a small river town, you don't expect to have a meal as well prepared and refined as the city, yet that's what they serve. My wife and I went on Valentines day, and ate so well we floated out of the restaurant. The appetizers, Beet carpaccio and foie gras, were divine. The main course mushroom risotto was the best...

This is a lovely inn with a very friendly and accomodating staff. If you enjoy a historic atmosphere this is great place to stay. It is a great spot from which to explore the wineries in this area and don't miss the drive further north along the high and impressive coastline. We stayed in two different rooms; the largest one...

Beautiful and comfortable hotel with great balconies ( we stayed in room G) and services. Convenient restaurant on site with good food. The redwoods are warm and welcoming and the property has many beautiful places to sit and unwind. The property is impeccably clean and the flowers and gardens around the site were well cared for.

An veteran establishment right on the Russian River, surrounded by California redwood trees and tastefully updated to suit modern expectations. The inn has a nice deck and gazebo overlooking the river (see the photo) and the location is perfect for day trips of wine-tasting in the Napa-Sonoma area or touring the beautiful California coastline. The hotel and restaurant are somewhat... More

My wife and I had dinner at the end of June 2015. Was the best meal and service we ever had. The food was amazing, and that is from a tough critic and chef. The presentation was awesome and the entrees were even better than they looked. The halibut was cooked perfectly as well as the pork chop that we... More

It's never easy to find good, clean hotels that accept much less welcome dogs. Village Inn is the exception. Room was small, but very comfortable. I only wish that we had had the time to try the restaurant for dinner.

April 24, 2015 My wife and I are visiting family in the area. They wanted us to dine at their favorite local restaurant! Well! It was probably the best overall experience at a restaurant, from excellent food, excellent service at the appropriate pace. The menu selection made it hard to make a final decision. We all ended up with different... More

Village Inn was our 2nd stop during Restaurant Week. We had never been but the Restaurant Week menu looked very appetizing so off we went. The hotel - restaurant in in the tiny village of Monte Rio. It's off the main road (116, River rd) tucked in on the bank of the Russian River. Surrounded by huge redwoods, it is... More

The Village Inn is quiet and quaint with views overlooking the Russian River. Some scenes from the movie Holiday Inn were filmed here. One of the best things about the Inn is the beds. They have latex beds and pillows. Our bed was so comfortable that we ended up buying one when we got home. Room 22 has a little... More

My wife and I visited the Village Inn in Monte Rio on 12 March, during Restaurant Week in Sonoma County. Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for locals to visit eateries off the beaten path and to expand their list of go to restaurants. The Village Inn is a tad difficult to find as it is tucked in the redwoods... More
