About

Applewood: An Enclave for Romance at the Heart of the Russian River Valley. This Boutique Wine Country Inn, with its 19 rooms and suites and a spa, is located 1 hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the heart of the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir growing region. Sheltered by towering redwoods and surrounded by fruit orchards and gardens, this romantic getaway offers adults a secluded and peaceful refuge to relax, rejuvenate and re-connect. The Restaurant at Applewood  has been awarded a Michelin star for 2011 & 2012. It is known for its Wine Country Cuisine inspired by the lush bounty of the Russian River Valley and accented with Mediterranean influences. Built in the style of a French country barn, the restaurant's menu is seasonal and locally sourced. Its wine program is Russian River-centric. The Spa at Applewood offers relaxed pampering in a tranquil setting. The spa is a key ingredient for a perfect get away, exclusively for our guests. The Gardens at Applewood grow organic fruits, herbs, and vegetables and together with its apiary and chicken coop, reflect Applewood's commitment to sustainability. The green apple in Applewood's logo is a symbol of the eco-consciousness apparent throughout the property. The use of solar energy for producing electricity and heating the pool, an in-house, aerated, composting system and many other green practices provide a canvas for the conservation of Applewood's beauty.

Great place for a couple nights

3.8 on September 24, 2016

Our room on ground floor was a little noisy from people in upper units at times. A mini fridge would be nice to have. Beautiful bath but design of shower made it easy to end up with lots of water on floor. Little things really. All in all a nice place to stay with helpful staff.

When we arrived...Rick greeted us with a warm smile and a glass of wine. Rick was so friendly, helpful and gave us great information about the Inn and the surrounding area. What a wonderful stay and also the best breakfast of our entire trip! Bear, the lab was also a wonderful part of our arrival! We would definitely stay here again!


Another great stay at Applewood!

A trip to Applewood is not complete without getting a massage and having dinner at the restaraunt as often as you can.


A stay at Applewood

4.2 on November 24, 2014

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Applewood, the setting was beautiful and we wished we had stayed a little longer. One thing, when we arrived we were a bit early for our check-in and the woman at the desk wasn't very friendly. She said we were too early gave us a wine map and basically kicked us out.


Great Anniversary Stay

4.6 on July 06, 2014

We stayed 4 nights the week of 4th of July for our 20th anniversary. Applewood was perfect place to be! EVERYONE was very nice and service oriented. Included breakfast was outstanding. We stayed in room 10, Castelina. Great room, very romantic, private sitting area & hot tub, 2headed shower, beautiful view out of the windows and gas fireplace! Many outdoor sitting areas around the property. We definitely will return !


Perfect Getaway

My two-night stay was excellent; my expectations were surpassed. The restaurant and the inn are each wonderful, and the staff were all cheerful and helpful. The restaurant had delicious, seasonal food that was beautifully presented in a warm dining room that had a fireplace and pretty garden views. My own room was a treat: a fireplace, jetted tub, private sitting deck, huge bathroom, and an insanely comfortable bed with luxurious linens. Lots of small details showed the innkeepers really care about their guests' comfort. The grounds were lovely, too, and a pleasure to stroll around in. I'll definitely be back, and hopefully will get a chance to try out the spa services when I do.


Excellent

Standard King

Your own personal fireplace, a seating area just outside your door to enjoy our courtyard fountain, and the whisper of something special. Calling these rooms standard seems almost unfair when the Applewood Inn experience is anything but your standard Russian River Hotel experience. Where else can you feel like you’ve gotten quite so far from the “real” world while still being so close to downtown Guerneville and our surrounding wine regions in the heart of the Russian River? Our King Rooms offer you all the comforts you need however long you stay with us, including: · Personal gas fireplace. · Shared covered veranda. · A plush king size bed with TEMPUR-Contour Select mattress. · Couple's shower with dual shower heads. · 100% Egyptian cotton Frette Linens and fluffy terry bath monogramed robes. · Gilcrest and Soame Luxury Bath Products. · LCD HD Cable Television. · Com

Applewood Inn is not a stodgy bed and breakfast, it is the peaceful intimate retreat you were looking for. Our Patio Kings offer this extra intimacy with your own private outdoor fire pit to relax by, and enough space to even treat yourself to an in-room massage. Each room also features: · Private Balcony, some with gas fire pit table. · A plush king size bed with TEMPUR-Contour Select " TEMPUR-PEDIC mattress. · Whirlpool tub for two. · Gas Fireplace. · 100% Egyptian cotton Frette Linens, fluffy Frette terry towels and Frette bath monogramed robes and slip

About the innkeepers

I love travel, food and wine, motorcycles and friends. I drove from Texas to Rio de Janeiro in a 7 and a half months unforgettable journey and rode the length of Baja and back for a vacation in 1/2011. I am very proud to have attained a Michelin star for our restaurant the first year of our tenure.
