First to start out, what it is not. It's not a 5 star hotel with every amenity you want. You aren't going to get a spa or super swanky room. What it really is: Super clean, comfortable bed, and a setting that fits the area. Rustic, real, and good people. Let's put it this way; if you find yourself more...

We really liked this place and I can only echo what everyone else has said. This is a beautifully located old fashioned family run hotel. By old fashioned I don't mean it's out of date, in fact everything looks newly redone, but it has a simple, family run flavour that we don't see enough anymore. It's a great antidote to...

This hotel is located on the Russian River and the scenery around is so beautiful. It is close to Duncans Mills, Bodega Bay and Jenner .. all places we love. Herb could not have been more helpful and offered to get us ice or anything we needed anytime. We found all the employees that we came in contact with to...

We showed up in Jenner on Labor Day weekend without a hotel - typical. The nice people at Rivers End suggested this place and phoned ahead for us,. They had 1 room that was vacated early so we took it.It is a very cute little lodge - hasn't changed from about the 50s. It was clean and sufficient - at...

The hotel is nicely located right on the shores of a shallow section of the Russian River. It's not too far from Guerneville and other access spots to the river. However, Herb, the owner, was quite snarky when we checked in and I made sure to let him know I didn't appreciate that. I said he should be nicer to...

Great little find. It is a historic hotel and has been recently remodeled (2006). The rooms are what you would expect from a hotel this age. Small. No closets and ours had the sink in the room. with the bathroom the toilet and tub/shower. I'd estimate the size about 12 x 10. But the hardwood floors, room colors are nice...

The Highland Dell Lodge is the perfect Russian River getaway - great location right on the river. It has an excellent restaurant on the premises (closed Wednesday & Thursday), and the lodge offers a decent complimentary breakfast buffet. Lots of restaurants in the area, also only a short drive to wine tasting and coastal activities. The downside for me was...

This, by far, was one of the most pleasant trips I have ever taken. The scenery is breathtaking, and that is even before you pull up to this historic lodge. The owners immediately made me feel welcome and at home. My room had a beautiful balcony overlooking the river. The room was comfortable and truly made me feel like I...

We stayed here over 4th of July weekend. We have friends nearby, so spent most of our time with them at their place, but slept at Highland Dell. The grounds are very rustic and sweet. Just what you'd expect from a River hotel. Great location. We had the two room suite with balcony. The rooms are nice, but basic. No...
