I have had the pleasure of staying at the Highlands Resort for the past 20+ years. It's always a treat to return for a relaxing time away from the city. Lynette and Ken are great hosts and they work to ensure their guests have an enjoyable stay. There's a baby grand piano in the main house that is begging for...

Stayed in Cabin 10 for three nights and wouldn't change a single thing. Lynette was a brilliant hostess--spent lots of time helping us with suggestions, marking maps and generally checking in to ensure we were having a wonderful time. Cabins make you wish you had local friends to invite over to entertain (cute decks, BBQ available on site, kitchenettes with...

We had the opportunity to stay at the Highlands a couple weeks back during the rodeo / jazz weekend. This is a cute and quaint place and has absolutely wonderful charm. The private and separate cabins are wonderful to experience in the woods and they now have space to camp if you would like that experience with some nice amenities....

Ken and Lynette have put their heart and soul into making this resort a comfortable, relaxing and welcoming place. And their guests appreciate it and keep coming back! For example, they provide homemade muffins every morning, have stunning flower gardens in the middle of tall redwood trees, and offer comfortable and cozy cabins. The resort includes a pool and hot...

I love this place, relaxing and quiet beauty in the redwoods. Lynette and Ken are perfect hosts with deep knowledge of the area and interesting destinations. Homemade granola, fresh muffins or breads in the morning with fruit and coffee. It can't be beat! Pick any cabin or accomodation, you will love it. My Mom and I just stayed in Cabin...

This is our 3 stay at the Highland Resort and it just keeps getting better and better. We came up for an annual Wine Barrel Tasting in the extended wine country and were lucky enough to adventure out with the delightful owner of the inn, Lynette. While the wine tasting was fun ( and great to see all of the...

When we visit Guerneville, this is the place we most often stay. The cabins offer the just the right amount of amenities, while still feeling rustic. The hotel is surrounded by redwoods, but it is located just a few minute walk to downtown Guerneville. The owners are very accommodating and friendly. They offer a nice breakfast, with homemade muffins. We...

I/we always love it here every year. The wide variety of cabins and tent sites are offered by the super friendly staff. We're gay and they are str8 friendly. The str8's are also friendly and avoid the hot tub after dark, lol 😊

“Cabin 10 is the last cabin down the line—great for a little more privacy (but still two min from parking/pool/spa/breakfast room).”
