The Rio Nido Lodge

Located in the Heart of the Russian River Valley

The Rio Nido Lodge is located in the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, California. We’re 13 miles from Highway 101, 18 miles to downtown Santa Rosa, 15 miles from the coast, and 73 miles from San Francisco.

The bustling town of Guerneville is just 2 miles to the west, and the renowned Korbel Winery is just one mile down River Road. Also, Armstrong Woods State Park and many Wineries are only minutes away.

But we must warn you. Our little hamlet in the redwoods is so lovely, you may not want to leave. It’s just a short walk to our community garden, dog park, playground, picnic area, and the banks of the Russian River. Plus, our next door neighbors at the Rio Nido Roadhouse serve up great food, drinks, and live music. Their pool is also open to the public during the summer.
