Wooing same sex weddings in Guerneville

Jun 3, 2008 | Posted by: Thomas Jackson | Full story: lgbttravel.blogspot.com

Lynette McLean and her husband, Ken, have catered to gay visitors at their Guerneville resort for more than a decade, but never thought to offer honeymoon packages.

But now that gay and lesbian couples in the state can legally wed beginning June 17, the Highlands Resort is prepared.

Her Russian River resort is one of at least a dozen North Coast hotels, inns and spas that have quickly created wedding and honeymoon specials in hopes of cashing in on the nuptials.

"Most business owners up here are really hoping it brings in more offseason business," McLean said. "This is something we could promote all year, which is really what the river needs."

A few couples have already booked weddings at the Rio Villa Beach Resort in Monte Rio, said owner Ron Moore, 49.

As a southern Californian who has visited this lovely town to the north on several occasions (it's the gateway town to the beautiful Armstrong Redwoods Reserve) I say to all couples straight and gay you couldn't pick a more beautiful spot to spend a quiet honeymoon.

Guerneville is only some 60 miles north of San Francisco and easily accessed by both freeway and/or scenic, laid back country roads. Enjoy!
