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. 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.

Booked this as a getaway with my mom from San Francisco. Pros: -The location is very nice and quiet- many trees nearby. The view out of our room was of forest and that was very nice. -The receptionist was nice and accomodating, and I liked the champagne welcome. - The property has charm and the courtyard is very nice. The pool and jacuzzi are clean and well maintained. - The room itself was clean - Plenty of complementary water -Great breakfast Cons: - The restaurant wasn't open for dinner, and this wasn't made clear upon booking. So we had to find a place in Guerneville which was difficult because there was a huge event going on and every restaurant was packed. - The towels in the room were threadbare- clean but need to be replaced. - The spa prices are WAY overpriced. I pay half that for a massage in San Francisco. - All stairs, not very accessible. The staircase down to our room was very narrow

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!

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

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.

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 !

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.

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.
