The Rio Nido Lodge is two miles east of Guerneville. Take Canyon 2 Road off River Road, go past the Rio Nido Roadhouse and you’ll see a white Tudor-style building, the Rio Nido Lodge. There are two parking lots to the left of the building: Pegasus patrons should park in the second lot as the main lot is reserved for Lodge guests. Look for our sign on the left side of the building facing the parking lots.

No one can resist The Pulsators! You will rock and dance all night long, right from that first chord! 

And Sunday evening, you can dance and twirl to the funky fusion of D’GIIN.
