Lot’s going on at the River!

Monday, May 21st, 2012

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.

IT’S NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION TIME. ARE YOU READY?

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

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

SUN AT LAST…

Monday, June 13th, 2011

The pool is open and so is Johnson’s Beach. Burke’s Canoes is going full blast, Soar Canoe and Kayak Rental  and the Canopy Tours are booking up fast.

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.

 

 

It’s almost April and there is stuff to do

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

April is not just for doing taxes. The wild iris bloom on the coastal hills. There is a great wine event the end of April when the winegrowers of Dry Creek sponsor the Passport to Dry Creekk event.

Coming up soon on-April 2nd-is the Occidental Fool’s Parade-a little spring silliness.

Sebastopol’s Apple Blossom Festivalis an event for the whole family, with food and wine pairing, a parade, art and craft expos and garden displays.

For more hands on activities check the Landpath’s list of activities.

The Russian River Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence do their famous Bingo.

For entertainment there is a free noon concert at Hopmonk Tavern on April 12 with Black Joe Lewis For those interested in brewpubs check out Stumptown Brewery in Guerneville. If you are interested in their famous festival, it’s time to book the weekend. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-776-6586 to make a reservation. Or use this form:

Hurray, the new website is here & lots more.

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

For years our friends have put up with an old website.  Now thanks to Colin Frangos, we have a wonderful new site, easy to navigate and informative.

We think that it is more user-friendly, with the layout of the property which you can mouse over and see photos and descriptions.  Also we are going to be using the blog more so watch us for current events and well kept secrets.  A good example of this would be Mateo’s next dinner menu for his pop-up restaurant.  The dinners are on the 3rd and 4th of March, Thursday and Friday, not the 4th and 5th.

Barrel Tasting at the Wineroad wineries is the weekend of March 5th-6th and March 12th-13th.

 

We also suggest that you can visit us on Facebook and get more up to date information and reviews.
