About The Applewood Inn & Restaurant

Located near Guerneville, California in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, Applewood Inn, an adult only Bed & Bbeakfast, is on a knoll in the shelter of towering redwoods, this romantic inn has two distinct types of accommodations. Those in the original Belden House, where cozy chairs around a river-rock fireplace encourage loitering in the lounge area, are comfortable but modest in scale. The 10 rooms in the newer buildings are larger and airier, decorated in sage green and terra-cotta tones that recall a Mediterranean villa.

Guests rave about the accommodating service, soothing atmosphere, and the earthy wine country cuisine served in the cozy restaurant built to recall a French barn. Sonoma wine country accommodations don't come any more relaxing or romantic. Sonoma County's Applewood Inn is the perfect choice for a honeymoon, anniversary, weekend getaway or extended Russian River/Sonoma wine country vacation.
