“simplicity and quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

This place is awesome. Simply awesome. Simply designed, yet elegant, modern and clean. Food is great, owners are wonderful, rooms are perfect. I can't speak high enough about this place. I stayed here, sadly only for one night when it first opened and was thoroughly impressed (obviously).

Make sure you check out their restaurant in town (same name). Freshly grown herbs and vegetables in their garden, home made ketchup, truffle fries and awesome burgers.

Room Tip: most if not all rooms surround the pool area.

If you are the hotel kind of person Boon is the one place in town that provides a higher level of quality. The grounds are a boutiquey, intimate modern setting. The rooms are modern, simple and designed minimalist. The beds (sheets) are the highest quality and some rooms offer a fireplace. The pool is solar heated and there is an honor bar by the pool provides verything from water, wine, liquor and sodas. Great concept. There are multiple magazines and newspapers to choose from. Amazing customer service. Breakfast is brought to your room along with french pressed coffee. Free bikes provided to ride in town. I cannot think of a better way to venture into Guerneville..

Room Tip: I would get one of the pool rooms or a room with a fireplace

My fiance and I spent one night at Boon and absolutely loved it! We wish we could've spent more time there and will definitely go back! When pulling in to the driveway, we were a little leery. But as soon as you enter, it feels homey and relaxing. Eddie greeted us and was incredibly kind and friendly. He upgraded our room, which was amazing! The breakfast was great, the pool and hot tub are awesome, and the grounds and rooms are fantastic. You can borrow bikes for free and ten minutes down the road is a beautiful little park with huge redwoods. I cannot say enough about this place. We plan to stay here anytime we are in Northern California!

Room Tip: Number 11 was amazing. Any room with a fire place would be great.

I travel to Guerneville about once a year and always stay here. The staff is amazing and they know the area and where to go for whatever you are looking for from restaurants, to wine tasting, to hiking, to cycling... really, anything you want to do, they have a suggestion. Each room is unique and well decorated and the beds are super comfy. They serve breakfast in the courtyard out by the pool every morning and it's mostly all local. The only bad thing I could possibly say is that I think all the rooms have one bed so if you are traveling with a friend you may need two rooms. But for couples it's amazing.

Room Tip: Every room is unique. Let them know what you want and they'll help you choose.

Came here with my wife and immediately fell in love with the place. The rooms are stylishly decorated, with all creature comforts anticipated. The beds are amazing and really can't be topped. Everyone who works there is really friendly, with lots of advice about local vineyards and attractions.

how is this place NOT ranked #1 on tripadvisor?
artfully chosen bed products and linens (coyuchi), delicious locally-sourced breakfast, warm staff, bicycles for your enjoyment, and a great pool and jacuzzi. it's a thoughtfully redone property, with great choices made on design and experience. the location is fantastic; it's within close distance of both the main drag and armstrong national park--where you can marvel at the beauty of the redwoods. (i strongly recommend a bike ride to the park and through the redwoods floor.)

i love the laid back feel to this place. the honor bar at the pool, the relatively small number of cottages (and therefore, people), the gracious host teddy, and boon, the onsite dog. wonderful, low-key oasis with all the right elements.

things to note:
because it's a solar-heated pool, it's not really swimmable until it's hot. really hot. we were there when it was 80 degrees, and it was still freezing. the jacuzzi, on the other hand, is wonderfully warm.

Room Tip: we stayed in cottage 13, which is fairly close to the road. we're not light sleepers, so it wasn...

We found this place through a TravelZoo deal. We didn't know much about the area beforehand, but we had some wine tasting to do in northern Sonoma so it was well-situated. You have to ignore the neighborhood, really. It's a bit Appalachian. But driving into Boon is like entering an oasis, a walled city, a gated community. Everything is calm, pleasant, well-appointed. The staff (shout out to Teddy) is beyond helpful. We had a great room with a fireplace (the freestanding Heatilator type that I remember from many years ago). Turns out the place dates from the 50's but you'd never know it. It's totally renovated, clean, cool. And it's all so laid back. An honor bar in the pool area, honor minibar and snacks in the room. Breakfast is delivered to your room. It's light, but French press coffee, biscuits and fruit will start your day quite nicely. Great example of the gestalt here: I asked what time check out was, and the answer (with a look that suggested it was an odd question) was "whenever. you guys are fine." Gotta love that. I do have one major complaint: I didn't meet Boon, the eponymous dog who named the place. Next time? Oh, and do book a massage. Janie turned me into a walking puddle. :-)

Room Tip: I'm told that some of the rooms are quieter than others. But there weren't many other guests...
