Safeway store in Guerneville

Once in Guerneville, go through town and continue 1/2 mile past the Safeway store and turn right on Old Cazadero Road. Look at your odometer at this point, for you will be going 5.5 miles Old Cazadero Road to our gate.

5.5 miles


After the first mile or so, you will cross a bridge and come to a stop sign, where you will see a house directly in front of you. Turn right, and immediately take the left fork to stay on "Old Caz." Ignore right hand turns for Fern Way and Arroyo. After another 1/2 mile the road makes a sharp turn to the right, crosses a bridge, and begins to climb. Be careful not to continue straight at this point, or you will end up in a private driveway.

1 mile

We are at the very end of the road. Our street address is 20111 Old Cazadero Road. (Please note that this is NOT our mailing address, which can be found at the Contact Us menu selection.)
