Dawn Ranch made us feel as though we were among friends. The bar staff were sweet and remembered our names. The room was cozy and charmingly rustic. Everything was quiet and clean. We loved being able to walk into town. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Thank you Cara for the wonderful review of your most recent stay here at Dawn Ranch. We couldn't have described what we offer better then "cozy and charmingly rustic". We appreciate all of our guests that have become family members of Dawn Ranch but especially those that take the time out of their busy schedules to let us know how...

Rented a little cabin at Dawn Ranch for a week. Cabin was small but clean. Bed VERY comfortable, and bathroom was nice. Was during a very busy event and still was one of the most restful sleeps I can ever remember. Will certainly return when in the area.

This place has a beautiful energy about it and is a really good spot for a wedding. The outside has it all, trees, a meadow, The Russian river. The stroll into town is relaxing. The cabins were clean and bright. I wish there was a little coffee pot in the cabin, though. I like to have my morning coffee in...

Truly one of the best spots to 'get away' and feel secluded. Take a walk along the River and find secret spots to sit and relax among the Redwoods. We stayed in the cozy Redwood Cabin area, it was a perfect rustic retreat as we made our way through wine county. The best part was no TV, Technology/Wi-Fi, unplug yourself...

I stayed here in the off season for a few nights with a corporate group. In other words, I had no choice but to stay here. Before I get into all the problems with this hotel, the one good thing was the food. Lunches were delicious. The rooms, however, are appalling. If you like to camp and want to be...

We went here for a wedding recently, and it was an overall great experience. If you are planning an event (wedding, family reunion) this could be an amazing choice--you have everyone near each other in these tiny little cabins, and the grounds and service are wonderful. Our friends four-day wedding gathering, rehearsal, ceremony, and reception were all on the grounds...

We went to Guerneville to celebrate my Grandma's birthday and were so very happy with our stay. The wonderful lady (unfortunately do not remember her name) that checked us in 7/30 was so accommodating and truly cared about us and our stay. She put us in the chalets towards the back of the property that overlooked the stretch of grass....

My husband and I decided to book a last minute weekend get away and came across the Dawn Ranch Lodge. The lodge and staff were absolutely lovely. The cabin itself is very basic (as it's intended to be) with a bed, sitting room, and bathroom- and no modern conveniences (no tv, phone, wifi, etc.), which was nice to have removed....

My boyfriend and I decided last minute to leave the 4th of July crowds of the city for the beauty and quiet of Guerneville California.

My wife and I stayed two nights at the lodge cabin in connection with a family wedding conducted at the lodge property. The cabins appeared to be cheap prefab units rather than upgraded wooden cabins from the last century- which their ads seem to imply. The space was just too cramped, with a tiny bathroom and a miniscule shower, no...
