Suzie was great! We arrived early with one in party not feeling well. She help get our cabin ready and offered a restaurant for me. Cabin was nice and clean with small frig., coffee maker, and microwave. Had extra coffee in container. Cottages had S'mores cookout @ 8. Great pool that was shady in late afternoon and many used it... More

Charming cottages right next to a busy highway, about 1 mile to Guerneville city center. We got a two bedroom cottage by the River Road. The rooms are small, but the beds are comfy. It was also warm, and they only have electric fans on full blast, and there's no air conditioning. The temperature cools down at night. The lady... More

Our stay at Cottages on River Road was a highlight of our mother/ daughter birthday celebration trip. From pre-planning to checkout, everything was perfect! My two daughters and I arrived at Cottages on River Road after a long day traveling from Charleston, SC. Immediately upon arrival, we felt refreshed. Our cottage #12 was comfortable, clean and perfect, including a front... More

The room was small but comfortable. The breakfast above the quality expected. We did not take advantage of the amenities, but the guests seemed to be enjoying their wine around the outdoor fire. I also noticed many children, so The Cottages are child friendly. I would reccomend the Cottages.

My biggest gripe with the Cottages: the service. I arrived late at night, eager to kick off a very short, mid-week getaway. The receptionist started off the night by yelling at the night watchman because he hadn't started the registration process as soon as we walked in. Meanwhile, as the person who's actual job it was to greet guests, she... More

We stayed one night mid-July, for $111 with tax. The cottages are easy to find, right on River Rd., and have beautifully landscaped grounds with cottages on either side, large pool, and fire pit. Adorable cottages!! We had #8, one of two cottages in our small building, and we shared a front deck, but we each had a small wrought... More

We had booked a king bed studio cottage but the booking website had made an error and what they booked for us was actually a queen bed cottage. This was not the fault of the Cottages on River Road and they did not have a king available. We were disappointed because we are more comfortable on a king bed, but... More

This place was wonderful all around. They have great rooms. The grounds are very well maintained. I will definitely stay here again. The firepit was a big plus. There is plenty to see around the area. The continental breakfast was good and helped save a few bucks. It's rustic which was the best thing about it.

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at the Cottages. We were lucky enough to have stayed "at the top" (my phrase) of the main group of rooms. It was well worth the daily climb: complete privacy and seclusion with a lovely view. Even an outdoor shower. The suite was very nicely appointed. We loved the nightly "s'more fest"... More

Yes, the dream jar was on the night stand with eye patches and ear plugs and night tea. The room had a mini bar, frig, wine glasses, small sink and Keurig coffee maker. The shower was decked out with luscious towels and toiletries. There is even a basket with Q-tips. The bed was comfortable. Each place is a cottage. At... More
