I've been a part of Jenner as a customer that fell in love with each establishment...they all have different personalities, different views and wonders. You are taken away from everyday life; it is the most calming, breathe in, breathe-out, take in the fog and watch it lift like opera curtains to introduce you to the most beautiful place that I...

A tiny hamlet on the coastal highway where the Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean. The cottages are on either side of the highway and the Harbour Seal room was litrally built at the edge of the river on stilts.

Jenner Inn is a complex of buildings in the town of Jenner. Some are situated on the hillside and others are located along the water's edge. We chose the Harbor Seal Room for our stay which is a waterfront room with a log cabin interior - warm and cozy - in the Mystic Annex. The room was clean; had nice...

We had initially booked one night, but added another about a week before. The owner changed our room so we did not have to switch rooms the second night. This was nice, as our upgraded room had it's own hottub, which was suprisingly clean and enjoyable. The room was average at best. We realize this is an older B&B, but...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jenner Inn! Our room was overlooking the Russian River where it pours into the Pacific Ocean. Especially loved the hot tub on the deck with this magical pristine view. We will definitely be back!

We just returned to the Jenner Inn for one night while we had a romantic anniversary dinner further up on the Russian River. We decided on returning to the Jenner Inn because of its incredible location and fabulous rooms. Calling them rooms does not do them justice. It was more like having a small cottage with decks. This time we...

We stayed at the Jenner Inn for 2 nights. It is located just across the street from the point of where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. Jenner is very small, 170 population, so not a lot of choices for meals. The hotel was just in the processing of initiating an early dinner which we did the first night...

I'll start by saying that I was not bothered by what some found to be a less than modern aspect to the property. It actually reminded me of lake cottages where my family would stay when I was a boy. We had the tiniest room on the property for the night and it was fine......but definitely overpriced. What really put...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
NEW OWNERSHIP AS OF FEBRUARY 2016. Where the scenic Russian River meets the crashing Pacific, the landmark Jenner Inn is being reborn. Its new owners are painstakingly restoring the historic inn, room by charming room, transforming the hostelry into a destination worthy of its breathtaking setting. Charlie Coyne, along with wife Katie and his cousins Marty and Tom, are the principals of Dublin Square, the family-owned company that is behind the renovation and rebirth of the Jenner Inn. The Coyne family has demonstrated its ability to breathe new life into historic properties and create superior hospitality experiences. A native Northern Californian, Charlie was practicing law in the 1980’s in San Rafael when his brothers brought him on board to join them in resurrecting the foundering Delta King stern-wheeler that used to ferry passengers across the San Francisco Bay. Under the Coyne family’s leadership, the Delta King is now a thriving hotel and restaurant operation moored on the Sacramento River in Old Sacramento. Tracing its roots to 1904, the Jenner Inn began life as a lumber mill, and played a critical role in the rebuilding of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. The mill closed in 1914 when the town consisted of some fifty buildings, seven of which are today part of the Jenner Inn. After the original hotel on the site was destroyed by fire in 1948, the current main structure was built—a one-of-a-kind redwood building with galleon windows, wheel beamed ceilings, and solid oak floors—its design reminiscent of a sailing ship (not surprising since the craftsmen who constructed it were Swedish boat-builders). The building is believed to have been designed by an associate of famed architect Julia Morgan. Today the Jenner Inn is a collection of 21 rooms and free-standing cottages scattered throughout the village, many of them dating to the era of the town’s founding. The Coyne family’s vision for the property is to maintain the inn’s legendary charm while updating its decor, furnishings and amenities. Most important, the inn aims to meld seamlessly with its setting, capitalizing on the surrounding natural scenery, quaint village atmosphere, and proximity to Sonoma Wine Country. Because each room is unique, prices will vary, but the goal is to offer a romantic destination emphasizing the natural beauty and activities of west Sonoma, including kayaking, whale and seal watching, abalone diving, fishing, bicycling and the world class Sonoma wine and food bounty. Several rooms are being designated as pet friendly. Renovation of the inn is occurring in stages, one building at a time, with the hotel continuing to operate throughout the process. Guests may choose from any of eight lodging types, ranging from the cottages with waterfront, meadow or grotto views; to the Jenner House’s comfortable creek side rooms and suites; to private studios. Many have kitchens, most have water views, some have private decks, and all offer comfort, privacy, and charm. In coming months the Jenner Inn’s dining room will include a full bar, and restaurant, beginning with full made-to-order breakfast for guests. The Coyne family’s vision for the Jenner Inn grows from Charlie’s experience as general manager of the Delta King Hotel and Restaurant for twenty-two years, as well as involvement in other hospitality projects in Northern California. An avid abalone diver, Charlie happened upon the Jenner Inn while returning from a diving trip. Dublin Square LLC purchased the Jenner Inn in February 2016, opening the door to another adventurous chapter for the Coyne family. Says Charlie Coyne, “ Our attraction to the Jenner Inn mirrors what motivated our purchase of the Delta King. We will be guardians of an incomparable asset with significance that transcends our ownership. We view the Jenner Inn as a treasure of historic proportion and natural beauty that cannot be duplicated. Our emphasis will be to accent the inherent attractions of the Jenner Inn and west Sonoma County. We were elated at the opportunity to acquire such a unique property located so close to the Bay Area. “ ... more   less
