The Rio Nido Lodge Bed and Breakfast

Located in the Heart of the Russian River Valley

The historic Rio Nido Lodge is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley in the Sonoma Wine Country. We’re only 14 miles from Highway 101, 18 miles from downtown Santa Rosa, 15 miles from the coast and Jenner-by-the-sea, and just a 73-mile day trip away from San Francisco.

The lively tourist town of Guerneville, with its restaurants, shops, and galleries, is just two miles west of us. And the famous Korbel Winery is just one mile down River Road. Also, the giant redwoods in Armstrong Woods State Park and a variety of Wineries are just a few minutes’ drive away.

But be forewarned. Our snug little enclave in the redwoods is so lovely, you may decide not to get in your car. Our building is just a short walk to the Russian River and Rio Nido’s community garden, dog park, playground, and picnic area. Plus, our next door neighbors at the Rio Nido Roadhouse serve up great food, drinks, and live music.

During summers, the Roadhouse also offers a swimming pool with day, week, and season passes. Meanwhile, the Rio Nido Home Owners Association (RNHOA) hosts holiday weekend barbecues, pancake breakfasts, art shows and more.
