great getaway

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Quiet, no distractions from a much needed getaway. The restaurant was top notch although a bit costly. Service and friendliness above and beyond...
Location: Stroll the downtown strip of shops and restaurants. Take a walk in the surrounding nature. Grab coffee at the local coffee shop...
great little spot along the river. quiet, simple and clean. just what we needed for a night away from the city. If travelers are looking for a quaint cabin get away, this could be just the thing.

Sweet place!

Posted Oct 21, 2014 on Hotels
I loved staying at Dawn Ranch, it was a cozy and sweet little place. The staff were very friendly and nice. The only upgrade is that I wish the restaurant and bar had more regular hours, they weren't open on Sunday for breakfast! I realize it was the tail end of the busy season so maybe that's why. That was not a deal breaker since it is so centrally located there were other places to eat within walking distance. I will for sure stay here again!

Bare bones for the price

Posted Oct 20, 2014
The cabin I stayed in was small and pretty clean but completely bare. The shower head was rusty and the towels were scratchy. Something I would expect from a less expensive hotel, most certainly expected more for $200.

Rustic and historic Guernville stay.

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Old charm, very clean, affordable and convenient
Location: River activities, bookstore, breakfast and coffee, kitch shopping, Horseback, hikes movies, great food
This is an old nostalgic kind of stay. My family of three nearly growns and spouse took three small cabin units. They we're tidy, minimalist and rustically comfortable. Close proximity to other cabins. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Easy walk to Main Street and river beaches. Wonderful meal in lodge restaurant--expansive menu, creative combinations and gorgeous produce. Only major complaint was unsheathed pool as we had hoped to swim. Would be a game changer next trip to area.

Great get-away, cozy cabins, friendly service

Posted Jun 30, 2014
We've stayed here multiple times and always have a great experience. Beautiful historic property, that makes you feel a million miles from home, even if you're not! Michael and his team are friendly and accommodating... make you feel like old friends. Whether you just want to swim in the river, or more adventurous activities like kayak, SUP, canoeing, or hiking, Guerneville has it all at your fingertips!

Nice location

Posted Aug 2, 2012
Loved the grounds and atmosphere, but our room was not ready at 4pm. When we did get into our chalet it smelled heavily of cleaning product. Enjoyed being within walking distance to the town and river. Perfect for reunions, etc.

little cabin in the big redwoods

Posted Jul 8, 2012 on Hotels
Very small cabins, very basic, but set nicely among some redwoods. Probably overpriced. Ok for one night.

Be aware

Posted Oct 24, 2011
While the hotel staff was great and the room was pretty clean, this is a bare bones cottage with nothing more than a bed and minimal bathroom. I would not recommend staying here after September as the small electric wall heater was just barley adequit for our mid October stay. We were traveling with another couple and were the only people staying there. They did provide a better than average continetal breakfast.
