Look, we have a brave fox in the pool yard. No fox in the hen house just more running around the neighborhood.
Hope you can come see us soon.
Writer, Sam McManis and photographer, Randy Pench came to Guerneville and nailed the flavor.
They recognized us for our appreciation of the eclectic. I can’t top their work so check it out at the Sacbee.com
The Creekside Inn is a special place. Located on the Russian River in Guerneville, the Creekside offers a wide variety of room options and is centrally located to wineries, Russian River recreation and Armstrong Woods. Narration by Lynn Crescione. Photography and Editing by Alan Fraser. Check out their website here.
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
Book online a two night stay on the weekend of February 11, 2012, order the 2 crab & pasta dinners and proceed with the reservation. Enter the promo code CRAB and we will pay for the tickets. Of course, this is based on availability of accommodations and dinners.
Proceeds from the dinner help fund the good work that the Russian River Rotary does for the local schools and senior center. They fund scholarships for graduating high school seniors, an anti-bullying campaign at the local high school, the Forestville Youth Park and the maintenance of the barbeque and picnic area at the local senior center.
This year the event is at the Shone Farm, which is the Santa Rosa Junior College’s outdoor educational lab for the agriculture and natural resources department.

As the weather gets cooler, the spa becomes more inviting-remember to bring a bathing suit. Spend a relaxing weekend at Creekside and arrange for an in room massage from Phil Miller. You can include the charge with your reservation.
Coming up the first weekend in November is Tasting Along the Wineroad. It is always a hit with guests.
We still have space for Thanksgiving either in cottages or suites where you can cook or choose one of the fine local restaurants for dinner.
If you love small town parades, Guerneville’s annual Parade of Lights if fun.

Saturday, June 18th from noon to 4:00 PM there is the Art in the Park afternoon with the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, which is a free event except for parking fees. On July 9th there is the Gourmet Hike and Silent Auction which sells out quickly.
July brings a couple of nearby Independence Day celebrations. Monte Rio celebrates on Saturday, July 2nd and Guerneville’s fireworks display is on Monday the 3rd of July. Who does not like fireworks? You can go to the events or watch them from the grounds at Creekside Inn
The Friday evening Occidental Farmers Market is open with a great selection of local produce, cheese, honey and crafts. It is hard to pass up the great food stands from Mexican and Indian fare to my favorite Gerard’s Paella and pizza made in a wood fired oven.
New this year: Papa Finch and two babies-barely visible just 2 eyes and 2 beaks.
The Farm Stand Event features heirloom tomato seeds, fresh produce, and a number of food truck choices for lunch.
