After 37 years the Jenner Inn has had a change of ownership. The Inn remains open. Extensive renovations have been made and more are under way. The renovations consist of new bedding with cozy comforters, carpets, painting, drapes, furniture, Keurig coffee makers in all rooms and other room amenities. The restaurant will be open by summer, with a full liquor license. Expect patio dining, upscale fare featuring local, sustainable menu items with a seafood emphasis, craft beers and Sonoma wines. The new owners are a family team of hospitality veterans from San Francisco and Sacramento, whose backgrounds include the renovation and operation the Delta King riverboat in Old Sacramento.
The Jenner Inn is the ideal location to savor the bounty of Sonoma and the beauty of the Pacific Ocean, Russian River and the redwoods.
Located on Highway 1, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean, the Jenner Inn offers unparalleled views of the Russian River esturay with eagles, seals, river otters, sea lions, pelicans and other seasonal visitors. The recreational opportunites are superb: kayaking, bicycling, fishing, hiking, abalone diving, mushroom hunting, whale and bird watching. Many take advantage of visits to the nearby wineries, redwoods, Bodega Bay or Fort Ross State Park, while others just prefer the romantic serenity of a visit to the bucolic hamlet of Jenner.
