“A Boon To Our Vacation”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Neither I nor my husband likes frou-frou B&B guestrooms with too many sham pillows and 2-hour breakfasts; we just want a nice home base for the area we are visiting. The queen suite at boon hotel+spa was ideal for us, providing a bed and linens that we both raved about, a fridge to keep our picnic supplies, a sitting area with duraflame log fireplace, and a serviceable little shower bathroom stocked with refreshing EO amenities in refillable pumps. The advertised “private back yard” was a disappointment- essentially an uninviting fenced-in graveled area, furnished with a table and chairs, backing up to the parking lot and laundry room. In fact our biggest criticism of boon is that it tends to overstate itself a bit in general, which can lead to false expectations. The “spa” part for example, is 2 little rooms off of the reception office and a lot of the “hip boutique hotel” style is executed with somewhat flimsy fittings. That being said, everything that really mattered was first-rate – I have to mention the bed again (*****); the pool and hot tub were great, continental breakfast fixings were diverse and excellent, including truly fresh baked goods and French press coffee (from 8:30 – 10:30); massage service was terrific and hospitality was at hand when we needed anything. Boon’s location was perfect for our pursuits of hiking in Armstrong State Park, canoeing the Russian River, and, of course, tasting the region’s wines. The associated restaurant in downtown Guerneville, boon, eat+drink, was an additional boon to our vacation. We would happily return to both.

After four full-on days in San Francisco we were ready for some rest and relaxation and Boon provided just that. A short walk from the town, in a beautiful secluded woody location, yet almost always bathed in sunshine. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and comfortable in a sort of minimalist way. (Our suitcases spoiled the effect but there was nowhere to stash our stuff!). We enjoyed the varied breakfasts around the pool. Evan was extremely helpful and made sure everything hit the right note.

We stayed at boon for the Labor Day weekend which was filled with wine tastings and exploring the area. We found boon to be a very quiet and relaxing place. Our rooms were simply appointed and the beds extremely comfortable. Add the cool evenings and you can imagine the great night's sleep we got. We had room "Lucky 13" which is large and has a wonderful fireplace which we used one evening. The back patio off the room was a nice feature but we did not use at all. The continental breakfast each morning by the pool was easy, filling and accompanied with delicious hot coffee - nice to start the day! There's also a hottub next to the pool which was very relaxing after a long day. We used the bikes in the morning to ride into Guerneville - this was really fun. The staff at boon was exceptional and helpful. Would definitely return here for our next trip to Guerneville.

Room Tip: The free wireless internet does not reach all rooms.

We were in town for 4 nights and truly enjoyed our stay at Boon. Wonderful staff and great grounds. An easy 15 minute walk to town and free use of the hotel's bikes. And they have a fantastic restaurant in town. We would stay (and eat) with them again!

We love our annual trips to Boon. Run by amazing women who go out of their way to make you comfortable. Boon eats and drinks is a 5 minute bike ride away and delicious every time.

We stayed in this hotel for a week and didn't want to leave. Very relaxed hotel with beautiful
rooms with (ours) even an fireplace inside. The best beds ever. Very friendly staff. Nice hot tub and located as an sunny oasis in the middle of the woods.
Don't forget to go to the Boon restaurant. It has a delicious menu and also, again, friendly staff.
We will be back for sure!

We only stayed here one night but was a delightful stay. The staff were very friendly - they recommended Applewood restaurant which was amazing (and a walk away so no excuses not to drink), i also had a lovely massage and facial with Phil. It was a treat to have a pool with the weather being so good and the dogs are lovely giving the place some character. Rooms are minimalistic style but cool and the beds are extremely comfy - coffee was amazing in the morning.
