“Cottage on River Road-a great find for anyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

I had never stayed in the wine country-so finding Cottages on River Road was a gem of a find! The Cottages have been remodeled and they are in mint condition! very clean rooms! House Cleaning does a wonderful job! Once you enter inside the compound of Cottage on River Road you feel like you do not want to leave this wonderful find. The owners and front desk employees are what make the Cottage on River Road a success. Very kind and Very welcoming to any of your needs. I found Cottage on River Road much nicer then staying at any 5 Star in the area. You will enjoy the location of the cottages and you will enjoy the wonderful courtyard which is truly landscaped to a T!! There is a wonderful fire pit located in the center of the cottages which is wonderful gathering place to meet new people or to just relax with your own company or yourself. Breakfast is ready for you in the early morning-really nice. You just can not go wrong staying at this lovely find. I have traveled many places in the World and I consider Cottage on River Road fond memories and so relaxing. Bob Lynn, Reno, Nevada

Room Tip: You can not go wrong with any room.

I loved this place! Mentioned the word S"mores and received a "free" upgrade from a 1 bdrm with a sofa bed to a 2 bdrm. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived to the check out! DeeAnn is awesome!!!! Loved the outlay of the cabins on the property. There is a pool but be warned that it is not heated. In the midst of summer heat, you don't want it heated. We had S'mores with the other guests that were there as well. Since it was still spring, not many guests but DeeAnn made sure that there was plenty to go around.
I only saw the 2 bdrm cabin. Nice size rooms and a wonderful bathroom that is HUGE! No bumping elbows in there.
Tastefully decorated and furnished. I wish I could be as bold with the slipcovers as they are. Large flat screen TV. There is a coffee maker, small fridge and a microwave along with wine glasses and coffee cups. No real cooking but......your on vacation!
Since I'm used to the river noise, street traffic did not bother me in the least, if there was any.
The do accept pets and have particular pet units. I will go back just for that!
Breakfast is continental, and there was plenty. I really appreciated the yogurt and fresh fruit. That by itself is one meal your not paying for, and if you have kids, your saving $$$. They have trays so you can take breakfast back to your cabin or sit out on the deck. So many choices!
There is access to a public beach across the street or drive down to Johnson's.
I've spent many years on the Russian River, camping and renting a cabin and I loved this place!

The outdoor atmosphere, the clean, comfy cottages, friendly and helpful staff, the s'mores around the fire pit in the evening, everything made for a nice, relaxing trip.

Spent a weekend here recently. 2 BR cottage was great space for us. Staff is very friendly - DeeAnn was wonderful. She graciously put a bottle of sparkling wine because we were celebrating a birthday - so nice of her. The firepit at night, with smore-ingredients provided, was really wonderful. You can hear a bit of traffic noise, but it does die down at night. Wouldn't necessarily go back to Guerneville, but if I did, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a cottage facing away from the road.

There are cabins centered around a courtyard. We rented the smallest cabin, which was very comfortable and clean. I was a bit worried about the road noise which was mentioned in other posts; however, it really wasn't a huge issue and it was easy to sleep. The staff here is very friendly and flexible. We did go to the fire one night to make s'mores and ended up having a good time chatting with others staying there.
