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

This was the perfect place to stay for our romantic getaway. Located on the main road & only a 5min. walk to downtown Guernville. The cottage with a bedroom,living room,fireplace & kitchenette allowed us the perfect amount of space to spread out and enjoy ourselves. Staff was hospitable, pool was refreshing and breakfast was one less thing to worry about.

I had not been to Guerneville since 1990. And this was just an overnight stop on the way back to Washington. I definitely want to come back here for a few days. The place is well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful (thanks for the fab dinner recommendation, Annie). We had a jacuzzi suite and it was spacious, clean, and... More

We stayed in cabins 1 and 2 with 2 adults and 3 kids. There was plenty of room. The innkeepers were friendly and the breakfast was very good- loved the granola and fresh strawberries. I would have given 5 stars with a jacuzzi tub in the room or outdoor hot tub.

The cottages are clean but a bit outdated. Our cottage did not have a shower but instead a full Jacuzzi tub with an extension spray arm. I don't think all the cottages are like this but do ask! The staff was very friendly, nice cozy grounds, walking distance to the main strip of shops, restaurants, bars. They provide a nice... More

I thought this place was very cute however there were a few things that would prevent me from staying again. First, the bed was super uncomfortable. That's ok if the room is $150 but when you get up into the $280-300, a comfortable bed is expected. Second, the shower is very small. It's ok and doable. Third, we reserved a... More

I booked a two bedroom dog friendly cottage for a short getaway for my daughter's birthday. We had cottage #19 which was very cozy. It had a kitchen area with small fridge, stove, microwave, coffeemaker and sink. The living room area was very comfortable and had a gas stove. There was a flat screen TV and free wifi also. The...

Fern Grove Cottages had beautiful gardens and a wonderful salt water pool to swim under the forest. The rooms were a bit small for four to move around in for sleep and no closets. The living room was quaint and the kitchen and patio were wonderful for all to sit out and enjoy sunshine & Vino.
