Our Philosophy

Creating a caring and supportive environment for individuals and groups seeking a haven for quiet reflection is a primary element of our philosophy. The décor of each room and cottage is designed for private sanctuary, as well as for romance.


There are two natural vortices of spiritual energy in Jenner. One is the tremendous power produced by the confluence of two great bodies of water, the Russian River and the Pacific Ocean. The other is a hidden place in the Inn’s Meadow, where the high hills of the Jenner Gulch converge. Spring-fed Jenner Creek tumbles over huge boulders as it bursts out of the hills.

15,000 acres of state parks and dozens of scenic trails provide a myriad of options for hiking and walking meditations. Kayaking or canoeing in the river estuary among the seals, otters, osprey and pelicans is a life-affirming experience to refresh the mind, body and spirit!

Outdoor Facilities

In the Jenner Inn’s private meadow there is a lush clearing beside a year-round creek, a sheltered, protected place known as The Grotto. An idyllic setting for weddings, The Grotto’s natural beauty is a one-of-a-kind location for outdoor picnic's and events.

Other outdoor sites include:

* Overlooking the Russian River on a grassy bluff near the River House.

* By the Rosewater cottage in the garden overlooking the Russian River.

* Offsite on a nearby bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.


Wedding guests have the advantage and ease of having their families and friends stay in our rooms and cottages conveniently located along the Russian River close to the main lodge. Our overnight accommodations include 21 rooms, suites, cottages and vacation homes which could sleep approximately 72 people. Additional lodging is available with neighboring inns and vacation rental homes. Please view our website at www.jennerinn.com to become familiar with our accommodations. It is not necessary to reserve all of our rooms in order to hold your wedding reception here, although a complete buy-out is certainly possible. Please let us know what your specific needs are, and we will quote you a price based on your situation.

Private Waterfront Retreats

The Mystic Landing, Mystic Landing Annex and River House can be reserved together to create a private, self-contained compound for your wedding with 11 sleeping rooms, 3 kitchens, 6 fireplace rooms, 2 in-room spa tubs and sauna.

Kayaking right from the deck of your building, with overnight boat storage at the Mystic Annex, offers a rare opportunity for this special celebration. A quiet paddle among the seals, otters and marine birds at dawn or dusk is highly recommended as part of your experience in Jenner. Kayak rentals are available by half-day, full day or overnight.

Or, for a more intimate gathering in a very private, romantic setting, consider renting the Rosewater and Rosebud cottages together. With open beam ceilings, stone fireplace, private deck, king sized bed, sofa bed, kitchen, and a large private yard with gardens, the Rosewater is truly exceptional. When rented with the Rosebud, a private cottage just next door with a rose-covered balcony, ocean views and a queen bed, you have the perfect setting for a small group.
