We recently spent 8 days in Sonoma and on the coast for our anniversary. The Raford Inn is by far the best place we stayed.
It's set out in the country - which for us is a bonus and yet close to everything in the area such a good wineries, good restaurants - even the coast. It's a beautiful home nestled into beautifully landscaped grounds, with a large wrap-around porch overlooking vineyards and some smaller individual patios.
What really makes the Raford Inn a treasure are the owners Dane & Rita who obviously enjoy extending generous hospitality - every part of your stay there reflects that, from the lovely rooms with little extra touches, fabulous breakfasts, enjoyable evening social time on the porch, anything helpful they can do ie: making reservations...all done with such warmth and friendliness. It helped make our time there very romantic and memorable. Thanks again!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This classic Victorian Plantation landmark manor house, built in 1880, once presided over a huge empire of hops. Converted to an intimate country bed and breakfast in 1980 it sits upon a knoll above an unspoiled Russian River vineyard valley ringed by redwood forested mountains. Lovingly preserved it is a place of quiet beauty in the hills of Healdsburg Wine Country. Return now to a time and place that has not quite yet gone by. ... more less
