Let loose in Guerneville

In a whirlwind of wild cocktail bars and hip microbreweries, chaps-slapping honkytonks and wild saloons where the clientele are a picture of Cali liberalism, Guerneville rarely fails to enthrall. In the summer months, the place comes alive with all sorts. It's home to one of the state's best-known Pride marches, is packed with LGBT bars, mixes in a couple of gritty biker haunts, and has its fair share of fishing outfitters for those who just want to hit the Russian River for some "me time". Book Guerneville vacation rentals to let loose between the redwood forests this year.

Things to do

Guerneville's great attractions in the great outdoors

Guerneville vacation rentals on Main Street might place you between buzzing bars and eco-conscious coffee shops, but you're also never too far from the wilder side of North California here. Head to the Armstrong Redwood State Reserve to stroll the moss-clad paths with towering giant sequoia trees looming above. Or, follow the meanders of the Russian River to seek out pebbly Johnson's Beach – it's a dog walker's and kayaker's hotspot. Further west is where the wine tasting begins in earnest, starting with the bubblies of the Korbel Cellars and moving on to the swish Gary Farrell Vineyards.


Adventures and pampering in Guerneville

Set aside Guerneville's wilder nocturnal half for a moment – don't worry, it's always awaiting – because the redwood forests and roaring Russian River of the town are a veritable playground of outdoorsy fun, with hiking, mountain biking, fishing, whitewater rafting, and all manner of other heart-thumping activities on the menu. Others might prefer something a little more relaxing. For that, you've got oodles of local spas and wellness clinics, yoga studios, and chilled Cali grill houses to settle in for a bite to eat.

Natural features

Guerneville hides in the Californian forests

Towering redwood trees line the courses of the Russian River as it weaves between the honkytonk bars of Guerneville. The forests hit their zenith with the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve just a little to the north of town. It's a place where you can glimpse the hulking giant sequoia tree that makes the Pacific woods so famous, and even go tree hugging along the Pool Ridge and East Ridge trails. 20 minutes' drive westwards will reveal an altogether different wild: Sonoma Coast. That's a place of surf-washed cliffs, rocky coves, and truly spectacular sunsets.
