A great time to visit. Locals abound and everyone in town is busy building floats for the parade! The Woods is a champion contender and always has a spectacular float. The resort itself is charming with all the amenities one could hope for including a complete kitchenette. Spacious and comfortable rooms (we stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage with 2...

The "penthouse" room was elegant although small, with a modern and roomy bath and luxurious bedding and bath linens. Some of the furnishings were antique, adding to the positive ambiance of the room. Our room opened onto the balcony with tables and chairs looking over the pool. The resort location is extremely convenient, within easy walking distance of restaurants, grocery,...

My partner and I stayed at this place for the Halloween weekend and we enjoyed every single moment of our trip. The resort is located in downtown Guerneville, close to bars, shops, restaurants and plenty of outdoor activities. The outdoor pool is great. Michael, the owner, was very helpful and we highly recommend this place!

Our reservations to stay at another place in town was messed up and we had to find someplace to stay at the last minute. The staff at the Woods Resort offered my wife and I a room. It turned out to be a very nice/clean place to stay, very quiet. We were a little unnerved by the locked gate at...

Convenient location for an average place...Gay friendly in Guerneville....pool, only coffee for breakfast (other places offer full continental breakfast) and walking distance to downtown. King bed with kitchen, and small balcony goes for $250/night. Not a big party place...which is good if you want to get a good night's sleep.

We recently had a one night stay and the Service, amenities and New Remodeled Cabin we stayed in was very clean and very nice. Michael the manager is very nice and made our stay even better! We plan to go back soon!

This is a great little place right in town. The mostly gay clientele is always friendly. They have a variety of room types from very basic to very nice with a price for every budget. The proprietors, Michael and Verna have had the place for a long time so it has an almost family feel. I never stay anywhere else.

The Woods is located on a quiet backroad in the center of town. This location provides a perfect location to get away from the fast pace life of the city. Small down side we found was the early closure of the pool area on hot summer evening it would have been idyllic to slip into the water to cool off....

The Woods is a great place to stay. The property is conveniently located close to the restaurants and bars in Guerneville. The property is well maintained and has an abundance of beautiful plants and flowers. The folks that run the property are very nice.

Living in the hustle of San Francisco city life, it is always a pleasure to be able to drive a short distance and feel removed from it all. The first thing you will notice upon arrival at The Woods Resort is the luscious plant life blooming in all corners of the common and pool area. From the fragrant roses spilling...
