Eggs. Bacon. Sausage. Juice. Our room was clean and, while not luxurious, quite comfortable. It included a fridge and a sitting area inside,...

The lodge has been nicely kept up, it dates back to the 1800's. The family that runs it are very nice, and they serve a tasty breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed our stay here. The location is great for exploring the Russian River area.

The lodge is from 1908. Got renovated in 2006 which is great. It looks great. I love the "lobby" which means the living room ouside. This place is actually a big house. It is classic and very nice for a weekend getaway. The place looks a bit old but i believe it supposed to be like this. (+) *the bathroom...

The owner is very accommodating and friendly. We were given a 2 bed suite that overlooked the Russian River. The room was very comfortable. There...

Very comfortable beds, affordable accommodation, helpful staff, friendly atmosphere and dog friendly. Free hire of canoes for the river available. Saw an eagle fly past the window when eating breakfast. Very relaxing stay. Would recommend! Go to Rivers End for a fabulous sunset dinner if your are staying here.

I loved my stay at this cozy retreat right on the Russian River. Spacious room, and the food has German flair that was a nice surprise, as was the excellent hot breakfast that comes with the price of the room. The Hotel is close to the small town across the bridge. Be sure to check out what;s playing at the...

Our niece had her wedding reception at the Highland Dell this summer (it was absolutely lovely) and we stayed at the hotel for two nights. Our rooms were clean and pleasantly-decorated, and the owners always went above and beyond, from quickly providing an iron, letting us know about the kayaks we could borrow, and serving up a great breakfast (eggs,...
