You will likely not find a more impressive setting in Guernerville as the property is nestled in a grove of redwoods and yet proximate to coffee shops, lunch and dinner spots, and the river. And we agree with most other reviewers that the hosts, Ken and Lynette, are great to work with and are most welcoming. By no means are we the typical pretentious gays, however, we expected that the room might be a bit nicer than what we paid for ($140/night midweek). The room was in an older building of the complex with floors that were slanted, windows that didn't seal tightly, and bathroom linens that were likely purchased at Wal-Mart. Despite these minor criticisms , you will not go wrong in staying here. Other reviewers commented that the breakfast should be more than granola and fruit, and that may be so, but in the end, it is our opinion that the price is a bit steep for what you get in return.
