Santa Nella House
Santa Nella House, “in the middle of nowhere…and at the center of everything”, is cozily snuggled away on Route 116 near Guerneville, a step back in time, an historic home from 1870, now the romantic inn of a very romantic couple, Betsy Taggart and Bob Reeves (a Robert Burns lover), who know the importance of time away from the hustle and bustle and care of daily life, and who have created the perfect place to decompress and recreate. From the moment you ascend the grand staircase up to the wrap-around porch, you are on vacation. From the lovely Victorian guest rooms and new guest cottage out back, to the spa, sauna, gardens and some of the friendliest chickens I have ever met, to the library, wines, desserts (Betsy specials!) and amazing gourmet breakfast (Bob!), not to mention nearby attractions such as the Russian River, redwoods, Wine Road wineries, the Pacific Ocean- this is your perfect getaway HQ! (Insider tip: SPECIALS!) The warm hospitality from innkeepers Betsy and Bob really fuels the tip top atmosphere here; attention to details, gourmet cooking, wine and area knowledge and appreciation, not to mention so many amenities and cozy nooks in which to unwind, bring high praises (top, excellent rating) and returning guests.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
