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!
