“Relaxing 2 nights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

This was our first time at Santa Nelia but it won't be our last. Bob and Betsy are wonderful hosts. Our goal was to do some wine tasting in the Russian River Valley and Bob gave us excellent advise. The breakfast were very tasty, especially the french toast. The hot tub help finish off a long day of wine tasting. Look forward to our next visit.

We just arrived back home and want to write a review for the Aanta Nella. Hosts are really nice - Betsy gave us a warm welcome - we liked our room: comfortable, clean and quiet. Beautiful old house! And Bob the owner and breakfast Chef treated us to wine and cheese at cocktail hour. Restaurant recommendation: Chef Patrick, was perfect. Thank you!

We have always had a wonderful time staying at Santa Nella House. Bob makes delicious breakfasts and Betsy bakes wonderful treats that are available each night. Wine and cheese are provided each evening and there is a terrific hot tub in the yard and a small sauna as well. Both Bob and Betsy could not be more gracious; they really make you feel at home in their beautiful old house. I can highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The two largest rooms are Blue and Gold. We've stayed in the largest between those two, Blue an...

We truly enjoyed our stay with Bob & Betsy. The food was top quality and really spoke to our hearts (and stomachs) in that it was made from scratch from locally sourced ingredients (homemade yogurt, bread, cookies, eggs from their own hens, fresh made juice, etc.). The comfort of the room exceeded our expectations. Bob and Betsy were welcoming and genuine hosts and we enjoyed our relaxed conversations with them. Their recommendations for Armstrong Woods, as well as local restaurants, were spot on. We cannot wait to return!

There's a reason this is the top-rated B&B in the area. It’s a beautiful old house with a wrap-around porch, spa facilities, and the most charming hosts, Bob and Betsy. From the minute you arrive until the time you check out, they are going to do everything they can to make sure you are comfortable, well-fed, and entertained. There are so many things they will do for you: providing plush robes in the bathroom, giving you a space heater in case you need it on cold nights, calling your restaurant to make sure you get a good table, and providing complimentary tasting passes to local wineries just to name a few.

Our room was immaculate and the breakfasts were delicious, plentiful, and always beautifully-presented. On our first morning we had fresh fruit salad with yogurt and granola, banana bread, egg enchiladas with homemade salsa, and sausages. We especially loved the fireplace in our room and the wine and cheese hour at the end of the day. The house is surrounded by majestic redwoods and is just a 5 minute drive from the charming town of Guerneville, the Michelin-starred Applewood Inn Restaurant, and the beautiful Armstrong Woods state park. There are many wineries close by and it's an easy 20-30 min drive either to the coast or to Healdsburg.

On our last morning, we had an early flight so we expected to miss breakfast. However, Bob surprised us by getting up an hour or two early just so we wouldn’t miss his signature dish, Bananas Foster French Toast – now that’s hospitality!

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Santa Nella House just prior to Thanksgiving and our heading up to Ashland, OR to spend the holiday with family. Everything met our expectations including Bob and Betsy's great hospitality. The breakfast each day was great, not just the typical continental style. Bob's homemade berry buttermilk pancakes were exceptional. We booked the "Library" room which is at the back of the B&B adjacent to the kitchen and library with a nice, comfortable couch, and good selection of books to read if one so desires. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very nice and included a fireplace which we used one evening. Bob served wine and cheese nightly promptly at 6p, which was a nice way to end the day, prior to heading out for dinner. Several really nice restaurants to choose from within a 10 - 15 minute drive, and be sure to consult with Bob and Betsy for recommendations. In fact, on 2 occasions, Bob called and made the reservations for us! Overall, a very nice stay, at a great place in the heart of Russian River Valley wine country. Will definitely stay with them again when in the area.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms most likely a bit quieter than the Library Room only due to the proximity to the kitc...
