“An excellent B&B”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Our stay at Santa Nella House was very amazing! We came for a mother daughter vacation for one night to get away from the house, and this was the perfect getaway. Bob and Betsy are both fine cooks, and they were both very friendly! Our room was super cute ( we had the Library Room) and the rest of the house was as well. There were two other couples staying there at the time, and they made it even better. In the morning, we got to go collect eggs from the chickens with Bob, and that was fun! When we were heading out, Bob gave us directions to where it would be good to go visit the beach and to Occidental. Overall, this was a wonderful,relaxing stay the was great!

Room Tip: Would recommend an upperfloor room, seeing as the floorboards are a little creaky.The Library room i...

While there is no Saint Nella in reality, Santa Nella has a spirit about it. Bob & Betsy are wonderful hosts in a classic B&B, Incredible home that serves the best breakfasts (Bob does a skillful job on the stove while Betsy bakes the treats that are awesome and welcoming each night). Our two rooms were well maintained and cleaned daily which was a nice treat at a B&B. While most of the time was spent offsite you are welcomed as old friends or family with both of them being accommodating in many ways including what roads to take, which wineries to visit. Night wine and cheese is great treat while the homemade Balsamic is to die for. DEFINITELY the best location in this area based on what we saw and wonderful in that it is off the beaten path. As long as they own and run Santa Nella is the place to feel Sonoma!

Room Tip: Tuesday night is FREE promo was great to have. Downstairs room is great as long as there are no othe...

We spent one night here and we were the only guests. Our room was very nice, and the breakfast and all the extras were excellent. The hosts treated us to wine and cheese at arrival and then dessert and drinks after our dinner outing. This B&B is located close to the Armstrong Woods that we visited the next morning. It is also close to many vineyards and the hosts were able to give us a card for the neighboring ones that gave us a free tasting.

We stayed at Santa Nella the last week of January for 3 nights. We were the only ones there at the time, but that did not stop Bob & Betsy from going out of their way to make our trip great. they set us up with a driver Gary who drove us around for the day. recommended places for dining for which ever direction we traveled. We returned from the coast one night about 8 and planned on using the hot tub and sauna, they opened a bottle of wine for us to enjoy in the tub. Breakfasts were fantastic, highly recommend this place, the only negative, if you call it a negative, it is about 3 miles from town

Room Tip: Blue room face the front on second floor very quiet room

All weekend long, I kept marvelling at the impeccable maintenance and attention to detail of this bed & breakfast. If you wanted to open up a B&B, a weekend here would be your 101 course.

We enjoyed tasty wine and cheese in the afternoons, chatting with Bob & Betsy (the innkeepers), gliding in the porch swing, snoozing in the comfy bed in front of a crackling fire in our bedroom fireplace, soaking in the hot tub under the starry sky, eating scrumptious homemade breakfasts, and taking advantage of the excursions recommended by Bob to nearby hikes, wine tasting, and restaurants. The tasting discount booklet is a huge bonus, as was the quality of the wineries recommended ("just go to Westside Road").

Every vase had fresh flowers, the newspaper was ready for us in the morning, and the cookies, tea, and brandy before bedtime were delightful. Not a single opportunity for hospitality was missed. We were treated like something between royalty and family.

Even the parking lot is beautiful and well maintained!

We've been to many B&Bs, and this one tops them all.

We stayed in the Santa Nella Inn in September of this year and very much enjoyed the inn, the surroundings, the owners and everything else about this lovely old house. The Russian River Valley in Sonoma County was the location of the inn and the countryside was so beautiful. Bob and Betsy were superb hosts, our bedroom, supposedly and excitingly haunted! was so comfortable and our 2 nights there were one of the highlights of our first time in California. The fabled breakfasts were beyond expectation and we were genuinely sad to leave. We would love to go back some day and enjoy the inn again as well as some more wine tasting in the various vineyards in the countryside.

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at the Santa Nella House Bed and Breakfast in Guerneville, Ca. during Christmas-New Years week. This is an excellent choice for lodging in the Russian River area. The quality and value of the "extras" above and beyond what you would get from a hotel were huge: a personalized tour of the property by Bob, the owner, followed by a cheese and wine hour in the early evening. The wine was definitely top notch (Thomas George Pinot Noir), and generously provided. Bob took the time to advise about the best restaurants and provided a discount booklet for wine tastings the following day. Breakfast was GREAT... all freshly made, including eggs from their own chicken. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and quiet, and the hot tub and sauna topped off a wonderful stay. HIGHLY recommended!

Room Tip: The Blue Room was great... didn't see any of the others first hand, but the cottages look very n...
