Welcome to the Knotty and Nice Inn, an adorable little cabin nestled amongst a grove of towering redwoods near the Russian River. Conveniently located on a charming private lane, just a short stroll from the river and cute little town of Guerneville, the Knotty and Nice is the perfect hub for your wine country vacation. This vintage Russian River knotty pine classic has been lovingly restored to its former glory – but with all of the modern niceties for your comfortable stay. Start your day with a cup of morning coffee on the front porch, followed by a paddle down the scenic Russian River in one of our complimentary watercraft - or perhaps a hike among the towering giants in nearby Armstrong Woods, a leisurely day of wine tasting at one of our nearby wineries, or a drive along the Pacific Ocean. With no shortage of nearby adventures, at the end of the day, you’ll be ready to unwind in our soothing five-person spa located under an enchanting redwood canopy. When dinnertime beckons, you’ll find many excellent dining options in downtown Guerneville or any one of our quaint nearby towns. After dinner, enjoy a nice bottle from one of our world class wineries by the warmth of our outdoor fireplace. Rest well in our comfy beds, as tomorrow’s another adventure at the river.
