"Perfect spot for the area"
Stayed in cottage 1, very clean and staff was very nice. I would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice visit off the Russian River"
The hotel was relatively easy to find-even in the dark. The staff were very friendly. We brought our dog and the dog received a welcome basket with treats and a towel! It is centrally located and you can easily walk to town. The cabins are clean and well set up. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin and the bedrooms were set either side of the bathroom. The […] smores were a treat-they set up all the fixings and you can chat with other folks staying there. I will definitely come again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Melissa, the kids and I fully enjoyed our two night stay... I definitely recommend Cottages on River Road to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect get away location."
Loved the s'mores! Definitely the highlight of our stay there. It's a nice cozy location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect hideaway in Russian River Valley"
Very pleasant. nothing opulent, but well-located for pinot noir country, redwoods, the coast and more. Good food in downtown Guerneville nearby. Quality breakfast. smores by the fire pit at night. tidy room. Nice grounds. I'd stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved loved loved these cottages! Cute, beautiful landscaping, good karma. Room was somewhat small but perfectly comfortable (larger cottages were available). Everything provided was excellent --- organic products in bathroom, continental breakfast was delicious and all we needed to start the day. The interior courtyard was beautiful. Although the "front" […] cottages backed up to a main road, no traffic noise was heard at night. Other cottages back up to a wooded area with incredible redwood trees. We gave a 3 for surrounding area simply because the cottages are on a main road but the town of Guerneville is quite close and easily accessed by car. The Cottages are highly recommended! We wished we could stay longer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, quiet cottages in the Russian River area."
Enjoyed this portion of our trip. Convenient location to wineries. Nice little pub across the street within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved it. The staff was superb and the rooms were great , clean and nicely decorated. It was reasonably priced and close to downtown. Loved the whole experience on the Russian River. A golf course is also close. We are already planning a return trip for the whole family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cottages on River Road exceeded all my expectations. Via River Road from Hwy 101 it's a 25 minute drive. The property is roadside on the right with a well lit sign. Our two bedroom unit was clean and cozy. It included a living room and a deck with tables. Magnificent redwoods are easily viewed from any place on the property. The bathroom is spacious […] with updated plumbing and modern, easy to use fixtures. Wi-fi is free and easily accessible. The staff is friendly and courteous. Artful touches abound throughout the property. Downtown Guerneville is 2-3 minutes and the Armstrong Redwood State Park about ten minutes. The walk through the giant redwoods is awesome!

"A Lovely Place to Stay"
This is a great place to stay if you're in the area! The staff was super friendly and helpful, and the area where the cottages are is really lovely. There's a garden shared by all the cottages which provides a nice walk to and from the main lobby, a few trails nearby, the russian river right on the other side of the road, and a very peaceful ambiance. […] There's a pool you can swim in, and there provide the makings for smores every night (weathering permitting). The cottages themselves were alright - a little more like a hotel room than I'd hoped, but they had plenty of amenities. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"really dog friendly. helpful staff."
they had a very sweet welcome gift for our dog. nice, simple, clean room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A really nice place and so reasonable!"
Lovely place. Great continental breakfast. Only complaint would be traffic noise from highway, but well located otherwise and so close to so many wonderful sights. Manager was so helpful with restaurant and tourist site recommendations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean comfortable cottage!"
Staff couldn't be more pleasant. Escorted us to our room, made sure we had what we needed. Grounds were neatly kept. Room was Very Clean!Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved this place!!! My boyfriend and I will definitely be coming backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charm and Warmth"
For the price, this is a fine place to stay. We had a studio and it was small, although the bathroom was proportionally bigger. It was clean, nicely decorated. The evening fire pit and smores is a very nice touch. The staff was uber friendly and kind. I saw some comments about being "shabby" but I did not find that to be the case so they either remodeled […] or the reviewer was a bit picky. Breakfast was convenient. I am interested in the larger cottages. It was just a fun, friendly, charming place. If I were to identify any issue it would be the heater that is either on full blast or off. Tough on a cold winter night. However, that would not be enough to keep me from a return visit. I would not hesitate to recommend or to stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cottage near wine and more"
Not all bad, cold breakfast, nice fire at night, near town with stores and restaurants, got a better price with expedia than calling direct.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Christmas by the River..."
What a relaxing getaway for Christmas! DeeAnn made us feel welcome and the cabins are modern and comfortable. The only suggestion is to install a thermostat in the room. It was frustrating to have a heater that you could not adjust the temperature...only on & off mode. Otherwise great location to explore the outdoors and close to the Rio Nido Roadhouse […] to refuel and relax with locals....thanks Tina! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"only 1 thing"
Great stay, warm and friendly staff. Only the thing I notice was the grounds Were not service in a while. Otherwise 8 out of ten. Thank you and would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Heart of the Russian River Valley"
The cottages were absolutely amazing and so was the staff. The place looks a bit shabby from the road, but entering into the gated cottage area takes you to a serene brick-laid courtyard with a fire pit (fire started every night at 8pm for free smores!) surrounded by towering coastal redwoods. Breakfast is served every morning from 8-10 am making it […] convenient to get up, eat, and get on your way. Being in the heart of the Russian River AVA, you are within 10 miles of countless vineyards and wineries, roughly a mile away from historic Korbel Champagne Cellars, and 2 miles away from the Armstrong Redwood Reserve. Driving to the coast to explore the unbelievable Sonoma Coast beaches is roughly a 30 minute drive down the Russian River and over the mountains! Our next trip to Sonoma Valley will be much easier to plan knowing that we will not have to search for a hotel....Cottages on River Rd. is the place to stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great wine tasting region and majestic redwoods"
Everything was great except that the bathtub did not fill up; just drained. Highly recommended!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for RR"
Everything here is delightful. People are nice rooms are nice and grounds are beautiful. A great find we will stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Second visit just as enjoyable"
We stayed here for a weekend in March and again in November. We were a group of three and so got the same room which can hold up to five. I believe most of the cottages are for couples. The place is along River Road a short drive to the center of Guerneville. While the road is busy, the cottages face into a courtyard and it feels very private. The staff […] is super friendly and the cottage very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Will be back! Room was so cute and comfy! Staff was friendly, even walked us to our room and invited us out to s'mores at the fire pit!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the hotel. The room was comfortable, and clean. Very nice atmosphere with garden, pool and cottages. Breakfast was standard hotel breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming property close to the redwoods"
This is my second visit to the Cottages. I like to stay here when visiting the Russian River Valley as it is close to Armstrong State Park for a morning walk in the redwoods. The cottages are very clean and comfortable although the property is a bit rustic. Apparently at one point in its history it used to house seasonal workers at Korbel (also just […] up the road.) Korbel has free tours and tastings and a wonderful deli. The cottages lights a campfire each night and puts out the makings for smores. Breakfast is included in the rate as well - bagels, donuts, muffins, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, and fruit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing lil hidden gem!"
Got to love this place, super cute, amazing staff! Hotels.com screwed up and did not change my reservation with them after telling me they did. We got in late and the manager fixed it no problem, very friendly and helpful. The cottage was quaint and quiet, after 4 hectic days in San Francisco the peaceful ambience was perfect! We will be not only coming […] back but we will be bringing the WHOLE family next time! Cottages be ready we're in love with this spot! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Am very glad we chose the Cottages on River Road. Except for a few very minor things it was a great place to stay. Innkeepers were very accommodating and friendly. Location was perfect for us, close to town but not inside it. We stayed in 2 different cottages, the second night was an impulse and the innkeeper gave us a deal. Very clean, newer rooms […] and furniture, decent amenities. Minor issues were that the wifi was very weak, a kitchen sink fixture was really loose and a soap dispenser did not work. Had to nit pick to come up with any negatives! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was the nicest place we've stayed at and way different from everywhere else we have stayed. Smores every night!!!!good healthy breakfast with all my faves...I'll def go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy hide-away nestled in redwoods"
We will definitely return to these cottages. Very clean, cozy, and a roaring bonfire greeted us in the central courtyard complete with all the things to make S'mores. Breakfast in the morning was peaceful with a good selection. Only negative was highway noise in the morning if outside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the rate. Near Armstrong Redwoods."
It's all good at these cottages. Clean and neat, and built around a zen garden type area. I do like a desk or table for the laptop, but a small quibble. The rooms are small, and not much space for a table. Everything else was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"IT WAS LOCATED NEAR OUR MAIN ATTRACTION"
VERY NICE STAY AT THE COTTAGES ON THE RIVER. THE ROOMS WERE CLEAN AND EFFICIENTLY STYLED. THE STAFF WAS EXTREMELY POLITE. VERY COMFORTABLE, SCENIC, RELAXING ATMOSPHERE. THANK YOUGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"S'mores and wine"
Very friendly staff. Evening s'mores next to the fireplace provided a nice way to meet and chat with fellow travelers. Their friendly fat cat could use to eat a few less s'mores. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This small hotel's staff made all the diiference in the world. They were very knowledgeable about the area and took the time to find out what we were interested in seeing and doing. DeeAnn and Gwynne treated us like royalty. The best part was the fire pit in the evening. It coaxed people from their cottages and created a great atmosphere to meet other […] travelers from all over world. Would definitely visit again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome cottages tucked in the woods."
Loved our stay here. Located in the charming little town of Guerneville. Owners/workers were very friendly and it felt welcoming and homey! Even came with a resident cat named Frank!Genuine Expedia guest review

"A nice winery getaway"
We had the family bungalow which had two bedrooms, one bath and a living space. The second bedroom was small but manageable, but the one bathroom was only reachable through the master bedroom. Friends or family, the setup is a bit awkward. However, the location is right next to Korbel on River Road and though you will need to drive to both Sonoma and […] Napa...it's worth it. It's nice a quiet, the rooms are spotless and management is great. It's like having your own secluded apartment in wine country. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute and Cozy"
I stayed in this facility for 2 days and I really enjoyed it. The drive to Sonoma was beautiful. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. They had a fire pit at night and provided ingredients for s'mores! It would be nice if they had wifi :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic place to stay"
Everything about this place was perfect. The owner and staff very were extremely friendly and accommodating, including making an unexpected late check in a breeze. The owner, Ted, was very helpful with recommendations for things to do nearby. My partner and I stayed in the studio room, and though it was small, found it to be extremely comfortable, very […] clean with ample furniture. Though it was a little crowded with our luggage, but we managed. The bed was also super comfortable. We didn't use the pool because the weather was on the cooler side, but we loved the grounds. Overall really cute and comfortable place. I will definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The cottages are adorable! They are comfortable and spacious, with all of the basic amenities you'd need/want in a cottage. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The entire property felt like we were all camping in that people were friendly and there was a communal feel as you walk to/from your cottage and the main house or pool. The surrounding […] neighborhood only gets a 3 because it's not very walkable from the property (but only a 1 mile drive...very convenient, it's just that it's on a main road without a sidewalk).

"Worth Price Paid, Nice, Congenial"
Very well-appointed rooms, pretty grounds. Yes, you will share a wall with another cottage (at least in my price range; yes, River Rd. has loud traffic (but not late at night); and guests did stay out by the fire pit talking till almost 11:00, but they were not rowdy or unpleasant so not a big deal. Place is very clean and seems well run. TIP: If you […] go this time of year and decide you will just walk to the nearby Stumptown Brewery for dinner, they stop serving food at 8:00 pm. My dinner ended up being beer, chips and peanuts, as I was not gonna drive anywhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"we'll be back!"
The cottages mascot, kitty cat Frankie, was our favorite! The fire pit was a big success, we met people from all over the world it was so nice to visit with them all! The area is stunning, a beautiful piece of heaven!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
What a wonderful surprise. Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, cute rooms. There is a fire pit and a fire @ 8 pm each night and a s'more cart to top it all off. There was a little road noise and the room wasn't as clean as it could have been. Overall it was wonderful and we wished we were staying longer!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the highway, complete with rattling of room."
We love the Russian River area. The gardens and landscaping were quite lovely. The noise and vibrations from the main road an arm's reach from the room were not pleasant. Won't be going back ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely comfortable room"
The cottage was very comfortable with all the amenities. Even wine glasses. The Host was quite pleasant. And at the entrance there was juice and fresh fruit available. There was a pool that looked great. I was in the area for a conference so I couldn't take advantage. And I missed out on the S'mores! The only negative was that my cottage was close to […] the street and a couple chose to have a screaming match on the street outside at 2 something in the morning. Not the hotels fault.

"Bring your soundproof earplugs- noisy with traffic"
I feel badly that it was my suggestion that our group book 3 rooms while on a tour of Sonoma Valley wineries. I guess that the low price is what was so attractive, plus the the reviews said it was quaint and clean, which it is. HOWEVER, if you want a good night of sleep, this is not the place to stay. There is absolutely no exageration in the fact all […] of us (in 3 different cabins) were awakened at the same time (3:15am) by a truck or train driving by...it made our cabin shake. It is a nice, cheap place, but I would have gladly paid more money for a quieter one. Also, beds we had were not the most comfortable. A couple of us suffered with a backaches the next day. As I picked up a bagel in the lobby a poor soul came down complaining they had no hot water in their cabin. How this place ever got to be rated so high is beyond me. Maybe if you live next to a train track or a major highway it wouldn't bother you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location - Excellent Staff"
My wife and I stayed at the Cottages on River Road as part of a 10-day trip and review up the coast in California. Out of the 5 locations we spent the night, this was one of our favorites. We stayed in Cottage #4 which had a nice covered porch and another room next door. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with large bathrooms. The staff were excellent […] to deal with. One interesting aspect to a stay here is that every night they had the fire pit going and all the ingredients needed for s'mores. It made it quite fun and entertaining. We had a continental breakfast each morning with fresh, delicious juice (strawberry one morning and watermelon the next). Our stay here created great memories we will always have and isn't that what it's all about!? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
