Santa Nella House Bed and Breakfast Inn

12130 Hwy. 116 , Guerneville, CA 95446 USA (Show map)


Santa Nella House ... in the middle of nowhere ... and at the center of everything! This Russian River bed and breakfast, in the Sonoma Wine Country, is a Victorian farmhouse dating back to the 1870’s. Built by a prominent physician as his residence, the property has been an olive oil mill, a winery, a speak-easy, a stage coach stop and, since 1984, a bed and breakfast inn. Extensively renovated and modernized, the stately structure boasts five bedrooms and five and half bathrooms. Each room is tastefully furnished with antiques, features its own fireplace and a modern bathroom. The spa area is located in the midst of a redwood grove and seats six. A full gourmet breakfast is served between 9 and 10 AM, wine and cheese are set out at 6 PM and homemade treats are available for guests before they retire for a peaceful night's sleep. Mike and Debbie Brooks love to welcome guests with a glass of wine and some helpful advice on where to explore the wonderful Russian River recreation area.
