Previously known as the 5 Seasons River Village Resort & Spa (and currently with the old sign still), the newly named, and managed, Cottages on River Road was a fantastic find in Guerneville for our stay during the March 2011 Wine Road Barrel tasting event. With only 2 weeks left before the event, I found a reservation on Booking.com for a great price and gave it a shot. Less money on hotels means more for the wine cellar!
We (2) arrived around 11pm on Friday for two nights and were promptly greeted by our innkeeper Ted, who ushered us in and pointed us towards our studio Queen cottage (#3). Cottage room included private entrance with queen bed, dresser, tv, mini kitch (ice, tea, coffee) plus closet and large ensuite bathroom (with toiletries kit). The cottage underwent renovation very recently - modern, clean, comfortable. A fantastic surprise as I had little to know idea what I had booked us into.
Overall a very quiet place with respectful guests. The cottages are all in a secure area centered around the common areas of lawn (and evening campfire/s ‘mores), decks, pool (summers) & office. Gracious innkeepers Ted and Lesley serve up a simple breakfast including killer muffins, fruit, coffee and juice each morning.
Walk to Stumptown Brewery for a hearty lunch/dinner and local pint. Continue on a bit further for cute Guerneville town center.
Overall a great place! I will return!
