In Guerneville, you’ll discover that convenience is simply a way of life. Downtown hotels make outings easy because of their close proximity to cafes, bars, restaurants, and outdoor activities. Add to that the natural beauty of the town’s surroundings—dense forests, vineyards, the crystal clear waters of the Russian River, the pristine air—and Guerneville emerges as a veritable epicenter for all your romantic notions of disconnecting from daily life and reconnecting with nature. While this quaint town is a hotspot for bed and breakfasts, there are excellent hotels too, some right in downtown and others just on the outskirts. Here are five of the most noteworthy.

Applewood Inn

Applewood Inn is a small resort with a bed and breakfast feel. With a full spa on site, Applewood makes for a romantic weekend getaway in one of the 18 rooms in the stunning Mission Revival-style home. A complimentary two-course breakfast is served each morning, and picnic baskets, chocolate, and Champagne are available for purchase.

Insider Tip

Opt for breakfast overlooking the courtyard. The homemade granola is a favorite, and they even sell it in the gift shop.

West Sonoma Inn & Spa

Surrounded by centuries-old redwood trees, it’s hard not to fall in love with West Sonoma Inn & Spa. The hotel provides a relaxed, country atmosphere, complete with all the amenities of a modern hotel. A short walk from the Russian River, you’ll have easy access to canoeing and kayaking as well if you decide that an excursion into the great outdoors is in order.
