Boon is the best in Guerneville. I would have given it 4.5 stars but TripAdvisor can't do half stars.
I fell in love with this place starting with the website. Good marketing goes a long way. It's tucked away from the main street of Guerneville and is close to the hills and big redwoods. Cottages are cute and all centered around the pool and jacuzzi. Everything is modern and simple. Not overdone. Our bed was plush and very comfortable. They are big on eco-friendly products as well. Our room was spacious and if you go during the winter, they have a fireplace. Our room had a patio in the back too, but we spent most of our time at the pool. The only deduction I gave was on the size of the shower in the bathroom. It was teeny tiny and my husband kept banging his elbows on the knobs and hanging basket holding the soap. It also would have been nice to have a table or stand to put our suitcase on rather than everything having to go on the floor. I guess that's what happens with simple design sometimes.The other partial deduction would probably be the noise. Which wasn't horrible but the first night we slept with our sliding door open for the breeze and the people in the jacuzzi kind of were noisy. But they do offer ear plugs in each room and the people quieted down at a reasonable hour. It was better the second night.
They serve a light breakfast in the mornings by the pool. Coffee, OJ, teas...One morning it was baked goods and fruit. Another morning bagels and all the fixings.
The owners (mother/daughter team) are so welcoming and accommodating. Boon, the namesake dog, does his job being adorable, but definitely has his priorities set on his frisbee.
I would highly recommend a stay here. It's a great value and relaxing getaway. And they're dog-friendly!
