The cottages are fun. The rooms are nice but not fancy. Bed is soft, small bathroom. Very friendly staff with good recommendations. Located on the outskirts of town. We enjoyed a nice walk into town and dinner. Has a pool and you can borrow a bike to ride to a beautiful nearby park.

We enjoyed 3 days in cabin 8. It has a very private deck and comfortable chairs and lovely plantings everywhere including redwoods. It was small but very comfortable and clean with kitchenette. No stove but the barbeque was clean and ready. We explored, Armstrong redwoods and drove to the darling town of Hearldsberg, all only a few miles. We drove... More

Near perfection on the Russian River. Room was clean as a whistle a decorated in an adorable Cowboy motif. The new owners are doing a great job and the staff were friendly and helpful. Bummed I missed breakfast - next time.

We simply loved our stay here. Lovely quaint cottages, comfortable bed, nice breakfast, and lovely caregivers. We stayed here three nights and it was a little off the beaten path, but we did not mind. Received courtesy wine tasting passes. We arrived in San Francicsco & stayed in the outskirts; drove up highway 101 to Eureaka, traveled Avenue of the... More

Thank you Annie so much for making our trip so awesome, you went above and beyond for us and we truly appreciate you. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, would like you to send the granola recipe if possible. Hope all is well, peace, Mark and Pam

Innkeeper, staff and facilities were excellent. All very clean and comfortable and I appreciated the stand-alone cottage (no shared walls). Simple, but good breakfast every morning. The salt water pool was perfect for hot days, and downtown Guerneville was walking distance. The only negative was that the free wifi was very slow at night (many guests using it I guess).... More

My wife, 6 yr old daughter and I were very warmly welcomed at Fern Grove for a weekend getaway. The cabin w/kitchen was handsomely furnished and we had a cozy evening by the fireplace. The grounds and pool are both lovely. The staff were very helpful with any questions/needs. We look forward to returning.

From the outstanding staff to the great pool to the terrific breakfast to the cleanliness of the whole property, this place is a winner. If you go in expecting simple and high-quality, you will love it here. Going in, I read a few reviews that nit-picked this place, and I have to believe that it was a matter of unrealistic... More

The resort is very well appointed and maintained. Now while the grounds are surrounded by lush gardens and flowers, you need to know this is an older property, and the owners have tried to keep that old resort feel while at the same time making needed and sensible upgrades (new style windows, doors, counter tops, and so on). Our room... More

This is an enchanting property. The hosts are welcoming, kind, and informative. The cottages are unique, with a variety of sizes and decor. We met for a impromptu family reunion and loved the family-style setting for breakfast, as well as the courtyard for gatherings. Very close to the redwoods and the beautiful northern California coasts (Jenner, Bodega Bay), and of... More
