The thick redwood forests of the Russian River Valley are soothing, and so is the Creekside, a complex of apartments of varying sizes, all built on stilts above the forest floor. There are two options: an individually themed and designed bed-and-breakfast room (the waffles you’ll get are marvelous and the rooms are adorable), or cottages with full kitchens (most have dishwashers and gas fireplaces, and all have private decks and screened-in porches). The staff here is genuinely friendly and laid-back, and there’s also a pool. The pubs and coffee cafes of downtown Guerneville are a short walk away over a pedestrian bridge.
