“worst vacation ever!”
Reviewed 25 July 2009

A friend told me he stayed here a couple of years ago and it was good. They lost my reservation, gave me a dirty room. There was hair in the sink, the toilet was dirty and there was spots on the sheets.

Kind and friendly hosts. We stayed in 2 cabins. The rooms are nice, but not very well insulated. Gets hot and cold very fast! -and we didn't get the bargain we had booked and discussed on the phone. We wanted a big cabin for 4 people and got two. This put an additional $75 + tax on the bill. - even though the bigger cabin was free all the time!

This is one of the gay resorts in Guerneville. It has an old hotel/lodge kind of feeling in some ways. There's a big lovely pool which isn't heated (atleast in winter, i guess) and it's clothing optional.

The room we had was nice, a 2 bedroom suite which was newly renovated or built. It had a small kitchen area with only microwave for cooking, fridge, some kitchenware.

The bed in the front room was a king and the separate back bedroom had a full or queen. There are two bathrooms which were both new and had skylights. The suite looked out into the pool area (most rooms there do, as they are built around the pool) so it would be nice in summer when the hot men are hanging out by the pool.

The resort offered coffee in the morning, we usually went to the Coffee Bazaar for their very good coffee and espresso drinks and a light breakfast.

I liked Guerneville a lot, a quiet town in the off season. On the weekend there were a few more people. The Russian River Resort down the street has a bar and restaurant and it can be pretty busy at times. I'd say from what i saw that the rooms at RRR aren't as nice.

The real attraction to that area is the Russian River wine area of course and Guerneville is pretty well situated for that. It's a 15 minute drive to the heart of Russian River, maybe a 1/2 hour drive into Healdsburg, the capital of the Russian River wine area. Good restaurants abound. And great wine.

  • Liked — Great location, new bathrooms and such
  • Disliked — The resort was deserted most of the time
