Shortly after the election, we desperately needed a trip away to unplug and just reset. Lucky for us, just the place exists right outside of San Francisco called Guerneville. It's a tiny town nestled right by the Russian River and a quick drive to the ocean in one direction or a redwood forest in another direction. Needless to say, beautiful doesn't begin to describe it.
We lucked out and booked a cute little cabin at Dawn Ranch last minute, and with the craziest series of events, wound up at their biggest cabin (the bridal suite) by the end of the night. It all worked out in the end and the staff at Dawn Ranch took great care of us. Our cabin also came with a $50 voucher for dinner, so we decided to eat at their restaurant, Agriculture Public House. We weren't expecting much from a cabin lodge's restaurant, but we were so, so wrong. It was an amazing meal and we've been thinking about it since.
We spent the day exploring the tiny town, which didn't take too long considering it's just one street, and quickly learned how fresh and delicious all the food there is. We even wandered to a hip pie shop called Chile Pies that's located in the converted Guerneville Bank. It doesn't get any cooler than that.
Before heading home, we explored Jenner, Sonoma Coast State Park, and ate lunch at Gourmet au Bay in Bodega Bay. All in all, it was the perfect weekend getaway if you're looking to leave the city, get yourself some nature, and unplug because there is literally no connection anywhere.
