Margaret & Mike are truly gracious hosts - and Innkeeper (Annie??) was wonderful as well. The cottages are well kept, clean, cute, in a great location, offer a very nice continental breakfast (can you say HOME MADE SCONES??), and even have a nice little happy hour with some yummy sherry. I would have given them 5 stars just they way... More

We have been wanting to stay at Fern Grove for years...it did not disappoint! We stayed in 1 and 2 as a family it was great having the two connecting spaces. The rooms were of good size and the kitchen was perfect for what we needed. The Inn keeper was very helpful and gave suggestions of things, place to see... More

We were welcomed back this week for our third stay at the Fern Grove Cottages. Margaret and Mike are excellent hosts. Mike answered all of my gardening questions about the beautiful grounds (I learned about Quince and Asian Dogwood); Margaret and her staff are terrific resources for all local attractions (wine-tasting; historical). Yummy home-made buiscuits and scones are the highlight... More

My wife and I rented the majority of the Fern Grove Cottages and one of the River Houses for a 'destination birthday' on and around the Russian River. Margaret and her staff were extraordinary to work with and went out of our way to make our guests, who flew in from all over the country, feel welcome. Margaret's 'English Garden'... More

My 91 year old father was on vacation with my husband and I and we stayed 5 days here. The cabins were clean, very cute and cozy. The are private, but yet close enough that you can get breakfast and bring back to your room if you want. The cleaning staff was excellent. Thanks for a great stay and we... More

We were in this area for a wedding, and chose the Ferngrove Cottages because they accept pets. The cottages are charming, each with a different theme! The grounds are gorgeous....from the salt water pool th the extraordinary flower gardens everywhere! The innkeepers made us feel very welcome! And the breakfast biscuits and scones are to die for!!

Fern Grove Cottages Simply put, they get an A+! The property is clean, cute, and the cottages are all little cabins, most with fireplaces, beautiful landscaping and gardens. But, more importantly, an emergency arose for me while staying there. The owners and staff helped me through a terrible car accident. What does the commercial say?---priceless. And their assistance was. Thank... More

We happened on these cottages after a day in hot Sonoma Valley. It was lovely spot to relax for the evening. It is an easy walk into town for dinner, and a great spot to sit on the porch after dinner. Our cabin was small, but just fine for us, and included a small kitchen with dishes. We enjoyed a... More

Checked in two days ago .... And still here till the weekend. With a wedding party from San Francisco. The day we checked in, the manager, Margaret, told the mother of the bride that an old guest is checking in today and not to make noise after 11, since "he just had a long flight" but nobody has a longer...

In April, 2013 my sister and I took a short road trip and spent one night at the Fern Grove Cottages in Guerneville, CA. We rented a two-bedroom cottage for one night, with kitchen facilities, including a stove and microwave. In addition there was a small gas-fireplace in the living area. As we entered the nostalgic cottage we immediately noticed... More
