Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our stay at Ananda was fantastic! The setting is truly serene, idyllic. It's close to everything, but just far enough up the hill to feel peacefully removed from it all. The cottage is charming - comfortable beds, modern bathroom - but we spent most of our time enjoying the deck, which is mostly shaded but gets a few hours of hit sun in the early afternoon. Perfect!
    We did have a hiccup with the hot tub - the blowers died on the first night - but it was remedied first thing the following morning and we enjoyed it the whole week without any other issues.
    All in all we really enjoyed our time there, and will definitely go back again!

  • We had a great time at Ananda! Pics are very accurate and deck with redwood trees is amazing! I highly recommend this beautiful place to everyone:)

  • Our stay at Ananda was great! The cabin is very charming and modern. The bed was comfortable, and the fireplace kept us warm and cozy. The only problem we had was working the hot tub. It is a bit confusing, and takes a few hours to heat up. All in all, a very relaxing weekend!

  • Overall we enjoyed the experience staying at Ananda. As others have commented the road leading up to the property could have you on pins and needles but once you are there the setting is majestic. A great place to feel nestled in the woods but have conveniences very close to you. We took one day to hit Bodega Bay and go whale watching and it will go down and one of our most memorable trips yet.

  • Lets start with the positives. The place is pretty rad. Surrounded by trees and up in the hills of monte rio. Cozy with Spacious deck area and nice views. Our experience however started on a bad note as it was pouring all weekend. The interior was nice but had some flies lingering which wasn't much of a problem. We decided to use the jaccouzi but could not get it to work. We called the service number but their directions got us no where. Someone was supposed to come fix it but never did. All in all Id still recommend it assuming your circumstances are better then ours were.

  • Quite little cabin up in the hills of Monte Rio. Kitchen was well appointed for cooking, there's a charcoal grill and a really big deck. Took some co-workers up to get away from the city but we needed a decent Internet connection so we could still check in on things. Internet was solid with a nice broadband connection.

    If you have older people in your party know that there are some serious stairs down to the place and the drive up to the cabin is a little tenuous.

    All in all very happy with our stay. Place was very clean and well laid out.

  • Super cute house with all the amenities. We stayed here for a weekend wedding with 2 couples. It was the perfect size. We did have a little bit of an issue where the hot tub wasn't working on our first night, but it was resolved by the evening on Saturday. Really wish that we had time to stay longer. Very peaceful and cute.

  • My guests and I had a wonderful stay at Ananda. It was everything the pictures demonstrated with little added "bonuses" to keep us comfortable.
    Close to Russian River, close to a well stocked grocery store, great fireplace, big deck, with plenty of deck furniture. A hot tub that was actually "hot"!
    Thanks for being part of a great adventure for us!
    I highly recommend it to others and definitely plan to be back....

  • Anada is a very cute house tucked away high up on the river valley hillside under the redwoods. Even with the trees it does get nice light. The main bedroom opens into the main room via paned pocket doors so you can view the fireplace from bed which makes for a very romantic vibe. The hot tub looks nice but we were not able to use it during our stay. There are kitchen utensils and pans, but there are no sundries to speak of so be prepared to buy everything you would need to cook a meal.
