Usually “dog days” refers to the end of summer but not here at the River.  We have 5 cottages where we accept pets at no additional fee.  They are the Apple House, the Tree House, Osprey’s Nest, Robin and Quail.  There are good options for dining with your furry friend.  Garden Grill is one of the most popular, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, well behaved pets are allowed on the deck.    For wine tasting Marimar Estate Winery is pet friendly and actually does Yappy Hour on Tuesdays.  For more activities and especially river and coast walks with your favorite four legged friend check out the latest issue of Sonoma Discoveries for “Days of Dogs and and Water” by Frank Robertson.  You can also walk your dogs on leashes on the roads at Armstrong Woods State Reserve.


Lot’s going on at the River!

First it’s Memorial Day this next week and that is always fun in Guerneville.  We have some availability, even a couple of Saturday/Sunday nights.


If you can’t make it up for that then there is the open studio events at:

Art at the Source

If you come the first weekend, you should be able to enjoy Guerneville’s First Friday Art Walk

How perfectly does that go together.

We have several good music venues too.  Jerry Knight’s River Theatre and Main Street Pizza to name a few host really good entertainment as does the Rio Nido Road House.

Hope to see you at the River.

The New Year is rapidly approaching and if you haven’t made your list of New Year’s Resolutions, why not add a trip to the river and a few nights at Creekside to your list.  To help you do this we are offering the third night free over the Martin Luther King Day weekend, just go to our reservation page, select the three day weekend and enter MLK  in the promo code box.   It is the weekend of the Wineroad’s Winter Wineland, which is an annual 2 day event where you can meet the winemaker and taste library wines.

Now for Porter-Bass Winery…

If that is not your speed, we have discovered a fabulous winery less than 4 miles from here that provides tastings by appointment only and has some fabulous wines.


We were lucky enough to hear about Porter-Bass Winery from some guests and then made an appointment for a tasting and were delighted to meet the winemaker, Luke Bass, his wife and son.  The operation is a multi-generational family run, biodynamic and beautiful.


If you still have energy on Saturday night check out the Russian River Sisters Bingo.


Remember, the third night is free if you book over the Martin Luther King holiday.  Just enter the promo code MLK
