5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Wonderful hosts. Dane and Rita made everyone feel so welcome. Especially enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese with other guests on the veranda. The location is so beautiful. Stayed in the blueberry room, lovely. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I were there in Sept. and stayed in the "Blueberry Room." Our only regret is that we only stayed 1 night! Next time we'll stay longer and take Dane's wine-making tour. Beautiful country-side, immaculate rooms, and great breakfast! Dane and Rita were very warm and accommodating.

We were in in the area for a Healdsburg wedding and decided to stay at the Raford Inn for several nights as we also wanted to wine taste the Russian river area. Can't think of a nicer time than our stay at the Inn. Rita and Dane are the best hosts and made us feel very welcome. Each evening they invited a local vintner to come present their wine for a tasting at the Inn. The breakfasts were great and the scenery was the best. Would stay there again on our next trip to the area.

These were the 4 most relaxing days my wife and I have spent together In years . Dane and Rita could not be more welcoming. The wine and stories on the porch made me forget I had a job to return too! The room was perfect. Just the right size,no TV, a nice jazz station on the radio, clean linens and comfortable bed. The breakfast was different every day and was delicious. We will be back sooner then later. Thank you so much for the world class hospitality by you and the entire team.

Our first trip to Sonoma Valley definitely will not be our last due to our wonderful stay at the Raford Inn. From the first glance we had of this quaint welcoming home away from home we were smitten. Rita, Dane and their staff are warm, welcoming and look out for your every need. DO NOT let the location description scare you away it is the perfect location. Close to everything with a breathtaking view. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Rosemary room was wonderful.

Our first trip to Sonoma this past September started with a check-in at the Wonderful Raford Inn. What a great place to start a short vacation/ wine tasting trip with the most hospitable inn keepers we've ever met. Rita and Dane are truly awesome folks and run a lovely inn with attention to every detail well accomplished. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and made a terrific breakfast every day. This was better than being at home! The King rooms were fantastic with comfortable beds and lots of space. The view is fantastic from the porch and the location is ideal for touring many great wineries. Want to know something about anything in the area, go no further than Rita or Dane. A wealth of information and recommendations flow easily. Every evening is a treat with the social hour for wine tasting and snacking on scrumptious things. The weather was incredible too. We would give our highest recommendation for a stay anytime at the Raford. Having to leave was depressing, but we know we will always be welcomed back with open arms.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sage Room on the back of the house. It was very quiet and we never heard the middle...

This classic Victorian Plantation landmark manor house, built in 1880, once presided over a huge empire of hops.
