Russian River Boutique Hotels support one another to meet the rise of tourism in up-and-coming destination.
SONOMA, CA – Six of the Russian River Valley’s most prominent boutique properties – Mine+Farm, The Stavrand Hotel Russian River Valley, Dawn Ranch, Farmhouse Inn, boon hotel + spa and AutoCamp Russian River – announce their collaborative effort to promote destination awareness in their burgeoning corner of Sonoma County, uniting as the Russian River Boutique Hotels and hiring Diamond Public Relations as their agency of record.
Set amidst acres of rolling vineyards and towering redwoods, travelers who follow California’s Russian River west towards the breathtaking Sonoma coast through the Valley will arrive in the quaint towns of Guerneville – a logging community turned insider retreat and LGBTQ+ hotspot with a growing gastronomic scene – and Forestville – a longtime bohemian hideaway for artists and writers. It is these two towns that this collective of unique and notable hotels now known as Russian River Boutique Hotels call home.
Located in the heart of Sonoma’s Wine Country and within a short drive from its scenic coastline, this region provides an effortlessly cool alternative for visitors who are looking for a more authentic yet upscale Northern California experience. Historically home to a vibrant, diverse community, the area is the perfect destination for nature and adventure seekers, wellness and wine enthusiasts, and is especially ideal for those who are bold enough to be a bit of both. Offering an array of activities from some of the region’s best hiking and kayaking to prestigious restaurant concepts, premium spas and over 70 different local and many family-owned tasting rooms within the Russian River Valley alone, the region is stepping into its own to become one of the coast’s most coveted havens. Ideal for hosting gatherings ranging from forest bathing retreats to intimate destination weddings, the Russian River Boutique Hotels have come together to welcome the rising tide of tourism to the Valley with a variety of modern and mindful accommodations to choose from, all served with a slice of small-town charm as warm as its local apple pie.
Within the last decade, the area has seen a hospitality surge that rebirthed iconic vintage properties into modern destinations that have been fueling Sonoma’s rising star. Connected by their unanimous belief and passion for the Russian River Valley, all the properties were either founded, restored and/or reimagined by multi-generational descendants of the region or by transplants who have become advocates of sustaining the area’s local beauty and rich community of creators for years to come. Designed to offer every comfort while remaining intimate and mindful, Russian River Boutique Hotels allow guests to fully curate their experiences, showcasing the local signature offerings in addition to innovative concepts that guests won’t find anywhere else, such as immersion trips into the Redwoods, and a modern-day cannabis-forward interpretation of a Bed & Breakfast. Whether looking to glamp fireside or taste some of the region’s best seasonal bounty fresh off the farm, the one-of-a-kind lodgings create bespoke itineraries that speak to each guest’s chosen luxuries. Designed as destinations where all walks of life can disconnect, the six hotels’ comforts include an environmentally-friendly, DIY bath scrub bar, in-room vintage vinyl collection, kindness note workshops, fresh baked cookies bedside, and a nightly aperitif hosted by an owner or manager.
Together, Russian River Boutique Hotels provide a greater variety of these modern luxury experiences than anywhere else in Guerneville or Forestville, offering visitors a selection of six different hospitality destinations, multiple distinguished culinary options, three rejuvenating spas and more. With this new era of collaboration, the properties look forward to introducing the Russian River to new visitors and welcoming back longtime friends, with the same hospitality for which the Valley has long been renowned.
