Please help!!!!!!!!!!

We booked a little cottage in Guerneville area for our anniversary... and just now I found out that this town is a gay/lesbian hot spot... We are a heterosexual couple, would really like to be around same type of couples... so would you please recomment a good Healdsburg restaurant for a good dinner since this town is about 30 min. away from Guerneville? It is a huge dilema for us now.... Thanks...

Good suggestions, all! Cyrus is extremely pricey, but an exceptional experience, one you'll literally talk about for yrs. They do book up way in advance. If you choose them, try to go when they first open. Much quieter and even more enjoyable than later. Be prepared to pay a bit under $300 per couple as a bare min. (that would inc. wine by the glass, not a bottle). After Cyrus I would choose either Zin or Cena Luna. Cena Luna is more romantic, but take a look at each restaurant's Website and see what you think about their cuisine. And seriously, you need to take a deep breath and relax and not be so focused on feeling uncomfortable around gay couples. Try hard to divest yourself of the notion that it's a huge issue. Just like straight couples, some gays are flamboyant, but the vast majority are just nice people who enjoy fine dining, socializing and traveling.

You might want to look into Zazu on the Guerneville side of Santa Rosa. There is also the Applewood Restaurant in Guernville itself.

Don't worry too much about where you are staying. I bet you will feel very comfortable there. Guernville is a nice small town with friendly people.

Another option would be the Farmhouse in Forrestville, close to Guerneville...one of the best local restaurants and not such a long drive. Try the Healdsburg places for lunch...

The Farmhouse Inn is very nice for dinner, if you really want an amazing dining experience, Cyrus can't be beat. We enjoyed an excellent meal there this past March, we also like the Dry Creek Kitchen at the Hotel Healdsburg for dinner, tho not in the same league as Cyrus. Have fun in the wine country! :)
