Our rooms are located downstairs on the second floor of the Riverwood Inn. Each room has a private bath and are reasonably priced, clean and quiet, except on nights when we have bands which is usually either a Friday or Saturday. During the months of July and August, we do not have music due to the incredible amounts of festivals and events that take up the summer weekends. None of the rooms have phones or TV so they are really not recommended for people with children. We do have coffee in the rooms to help you start your day and we have late checkouts. For motorcyclists, we have indoor locked bike parking to protect your investments and we are a favorite stop for two wheel riders. Pets are OK. Just let us know ahead of time if you have your special 4 legged friend with you.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE NOT BEST WESTERN!!! IF YOU MAKE A RESERVATION WITH US, THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT IF WE WERE ME, AND WE WERE TRAVELING, WE WOULD LOVE OUR PLACE. WHEN EVERYTHING SHUTS DOWN, IT'S VERY QUIET, BUT OUR ROOMS ARE LOCATED DOWNSTAIRS......WE ARE A ROADHOUSE!! WE DO HAVE COFFEE & SWEET ROLLS FOR THE MORNING AND THE ROOMS ARE VERY CLEAN. ( I CLEAN THEM MYSELF) I WOULDN'T HESITATE TO SPEND THE NIGHT AT THE RIVERWOOD INN.
The Riverwood Inn has existed continuously as a roadhouse since 1937. Phillipsville was a popular stop for Highway 101 travelers and we think one of them stayed behind in the form of a ghost. There have been many sightings of him in and about the halls, but he tends to stay up in the attic area. The building is full of creaks and groans, thumps and bumps and on the nights when we have live music, you may as well stay upstairs and enjoy the music as you probably wouldn't be able to sleep till the last note anyway.
Rates and Reservations
To insure you get the best year-round value possible we don't increase our room prices for "special events" or seasonal "summertime" rates so you're always guaranteed the same comfortable room at the same low price you've come to expect & enjoy. We have five rooms ranging in price from $80 for queen beds to a king for $98. All prices include tax. We also have a room with a queen and a twin and also a group room with four twins and a shared bath. Three person minimum, please.
With our great Mexican restaurant and full bar upstairs, we are a one stop accommodation. Our front porch is a favorite place for passing the warm summer evenings while sipping on your favorite beverage and during the winter we have a huge fire to keep you warm and toasty. We are at the beginning of the Avenue of the Giants and are in close proximity to the ocean at Shelter Cove and the most stunning forests in the world. If you like good live music, check our "Events" page for upcoming bands. The Riverwood features the best in blues, honky-tonk and good rock & roll! We have a great stage, dance floor and sound system too!
Reservations or a phone call in advance is recommended, especially during the winter. We will turn the heat on and have the room warm prior to your arrival. After 2:30, please call the bar at 707-943-3333. The bartender will take your info and turn on the heat for you!
Phillipsville is located just 6 miles north of Garberville. Take the Phillipsville/Avenue of the Giants exit off 101 and just another 2 miles down the road will find you at our door. Coming from the north, take the Miranda/Phillipsville exit and follow signs.
