GUESTBOOK INTRODUCTION
Guestbook Introduction Guestbook: “What an incredible place, we couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful experience. The house was warm, inviting and full of things to make your stay enjoyable. From the moment we picked this house to closing the door at the end of the stay, I couldn’t have asked for anything more except for more vacation time so I could stay longer…Thank you for the wonderful memories.. and hope to be back.”

THE OLD RIVER LODGE GUESTS

"You could have put a shack on this piece of land and I would have still flown from Cape Cod to stay in it. The house is really lovely--the setting is something out of Conde Nast Traveler. Clean, spacious, cozy, everything worked very well--good hot water, stong pressure, cold fridge--all the worries you get from rentals are not a factor here. Most of all the real treat was the bed we slept in was more comfortable then our bed at home (and we have a killer bed!)--What a bonus that was! The girls loved their nightly hot tub soak in front of the burning yellow, reds & purples of the sunsets. The proximity to town is perfection."
- Tommy D., Barnstable, MA

“This property provided a wonderful environment for a family vacation which included parents, two grown children and their spouses. We felt safe and left the windows open all night to enjoy the cool air. We loved waking up to the early morning fog along the river. We took morning walks and found all the neighbors we met to be friendly as well as all the people we met in town. The house design provided privacy to all of us, comfortable beds, was newly furnished and clean. We particularly enjoyed having the gas grill, new hot tub, the hammock, and the two kayaks to use on the river. We combined eating out with cooking some meals at home and found the kitchen to be will equipped. Staying here gave us the proximity to the vineyards plus options to do a variety of other things. Our entire family would highly recommend this property.”
- Nina M., Yorktown, VA

FIREFLY LODGE GUESTS

“What an incredible place, we couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful experience. The house was warm, inviting and full of things to make your stay enjoyable. From the moment we picked this house to closing the door at the end of the stay, I couldn’t have asked for anything more except for more vacation time so I could stay longer…Thank you for the wonderful memories.. and hope to be back.”
- Torrey C., Hingham, MA

“Firefly Lodge is a beautiful, relaxing place-–just as lovely as the pictures on the web site! Thanks for a great stay for a family wedding and reunion. We loved the location and amenities, and felt special and welcomed by the personal service. It truly is an exceptional place and we would love to have another opportunity to return for even longer to soak up the quiet and beauty of the river and to spend more time visiting the surrounding wineries and shops in Healdsburg. Highly recommended!”
- Anne S., Chapel Hill, NC

"Firefly Lodge was absolutely spectacular! There were 9 adults who traveled to wine country for a wedding and I don't think we could've found better accomodations for the price in such a great location. The two tiered porch overlooking the Russian River was where we spent the vast majority of our time and there was plenty of seating for all of us. The huge table in the kitchen comfortably sat all 9 of us for several meals while the bedrooms provided total privacy for each couple. Firefly Lodge was nicely updated with comfortable furniture and all the extras anyone would want on vacation. I strongly recommend checking it out for your next stay in Healdsburg!"
- Kevin M., Rocky River, OH

There are always concerns when you book accommodations online, that the place won't live up to what it claims to be on the computer screen. Not the case with the Firefly Lodge. Cozy, warm, serene Northwoods cabin, with a very well-equipped kitchen, thermostat controlled fireplace, twinkling fireflies in the pine tree (inside, not out!), an incredible deck to watch nature and a fisherman or 2 pass by....it didn't hurt that the weather was PERFECT for our weekend stay, but I can easily imagine a different, but equally fabulous experience on a rainy weekend, curled up on those comfy leather sofas in front of the river rock fireplace. we wine'd, dine'd, hot tub'd and ping-pong'd to our hearts content.... thank you! we'll be back!

RIVERWOOD LODGE GUESTS

“What a great time we had! The house was perfect for our four couples. The beds were wonderful! We all loved eating breakfast around the big dining room table and enjoying wine on the awesome deck! The men really enjoyed having a ping pong table. Everything was perfect and I would definitely recommend this house to all my friends!”
- Mendy V., Louisville, KY

“This was the second annual wine country vacation for our group of four couples. We were referred to Riverwood Lodge by a friend who had stayed at a sister lodge. Everyone in our group, as well as friends who stayed elsewhere, was very impressed by the condition and amenities of the Lodge. The minute we walked in, the positive comments started to flow. It is clean, well-maintained, spacious, and very comfortable. We cooked for 10 every night with ease. Many of us look forward to returning during warm season to enjoy the deck, hot tub, and river access (it truly is ‘riverfront’).” Riverwood gets a 10 from us.”
- John D., Napa, CA

"Riverwood Lodge was the perfect location for our long-awaited weekend with our 3 sons and their families. The house is perfect for 8 adults and the 4 children loved relaxing and sleeping in the Rec room/bedroom. They loved their private TV and ping-pong table. The house is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It's also well-stocked with lovely dishes, glasses and serving pieces. The weather was perfect, so we thoroughly enjoyed the large deck. We also enjoyed the easy access to the River, which was shallow enough for both adults and kids to cool off in. Another plus is the large parking area in front of the house. All in all, a great spot!"
- Janelle and Joe Becerra of  Wine Country Getaways

NORTHWOODS LODGE GUESTS

“My husband and I had a wonderful time at Northwoods Lodge and in Sonoma in general! The house is darling and had everything we could possilbly need for our four night stay. The Jacuzzi provided a relaxing end to our full days of wine tasting and the grill allowed us the flexibility to stay in, cook dinner, and enjoy the good wine we had purchased. We enjoyed a fire every evening – it made everything smell so good! The river was so peaceful and we even ventured out in the kayaks one evening. But we made a mistake and forgot our shoes – never forget your shoes! The little rapids meant we had to walk the kayaks back and the rocky shoreline is painful on the feet! We will definitely return, bring more friends and family, and try each of the other houses as well. We loved it – thank you!”
- Debbie L., New York, NY

“We found the property to be very enjoyable. It comfortably accommodated our family of 4. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and found the setting to be peaceful and serene. Great place!!”
- Patricia B., Byron, IL
