We love Guerneville! From the nice restaurants and shops to the rainbow vibe, this city will likely captivate you. You can do wine tasting, antique & vintage shopping, thrifting, go to the beach, get a pie-shake, and much more.

Cute little town, 10 minutes from the house. We do recommend the Underwood restaurant, the Bowman Cellars and virtually any little shop you can find in their half-mile main street strip.

20-min drive from the house. Eat, drink and be merry at The Barlow. With plenty of restaurants it's one of our favorite places to go on the weekends. Sunday's farmer's market is also a must see.

Boutique downtown with plenty of choices to eat, drink, shop and indulge yourself in one of the most chic towns in the area. The 20-min drive from our through Eastside Road (during the day) is in itself worth the visit.

A 40-min drive. The road itself is worth going for. The views of the coast are to die for. Eat some fresh oysters at The Birds Cafe. ...does Hitchcock ring a bell?

Food scene

Highly recommended for breakfast or small bites, but also for its little shop. Fresh biscuits made daily and always fresh. Get some local souvenirs as you wait for a delicious fast meal.

Oh man! Check their breakfast burrito (or any of their sandos for that matter) and let me know your thoughts. I promise you won't regret. Wash it down with any of their smoothies or fresh (and locally) roasted coffee.

A dining experience. They don't take reservations. If you are not fond of queues, then try to arrive before 6:30pm or after 9:30pm to get a table. Between that time frame you will probably have to wait for a while to get a seat. Which is not a total bummer because right next door you have a nice bar to get drinks while you wait :) At "El Barrio". Try "El Picaro" and let us know your thoughts ;)

If you are interested in trying really good food inspired by the german cuisine, you have to try "BROT". It's also on the Main Street. Surprisingly good! And usually less of a waiting line than Boon.

Old school american diner. Not fancy nor super original. And they don't intend to be so. But the food is plentiful and delicious. We love their Benedict egg plate for brunch. Open for breakfast and lunch only.

Best pies and ice cream in the area. We love their pie-shake. Give it a try! They also offer wine tasting in their shop next door. The ice-cream shop is located in a former bank and you are able to enter their old safe. Kids and grownups alike love it!

Wine Tasting

A short drive from Guerneville. A gorgeous family-owned winery in a beautiful setting. We suggest sipping a drink of Californian champagne or wine tasting while overlooking the vineyards. They run tours daily too, when they show their facilities. Worth it! korbel.com

Quaint, authentic, unpretentious and serene. I believe that sums up. Just make sure you have an appointment before heading there. Sue moved to this area in the 80s and bought the estate. She runs it alongside her beautiful dog-companion and a small team of dedicated helpers. If they Poco a Poco, get a bottle! They only make so many of them.
