“Loved the Raford Inn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2006

My husband and I had never been to the Sonoma area before, and had no idea where to even begin to look for hotels. I knew we wanted a B&B, so the search began. I combed through all the B&B websites, read all the reviews, and loved what I read about the Raford. The price was certainly reasonable, and the location looked very central. We looked forward to our trip.

When we first drove up and saw the Raford sitting on the hill, with sweeping views overlooking the vineyards, it looked like a postcard, or something out of a movie. It looked exquisite. We were hoping our stay would match our already high expectations, and we were not to be disappointed.

We were greeted by Rita and Dane, and the smell of fresh baked brownies (already a good trip!). Our room was one of the smallest, but it was huge for 2 people, with a full bathroom, and the comfiest bed I've slept in in a long time. The radio was set to smooth jazz, and we felt right at home. Rita gave us tips for dinner, and off we went. Upon returning from dinner, the complimentary wine, cheese, and brownies were set up, and we relaxed by the fire, and chatted with the other guests. It was very cozy, and very comfortable.

Breakfast and coffee bar the next morning were first rate. Everything was fresh and filling, and we sat around the huge dining room table, talking to the other guests and getting tips on where to go and what to do. The Raford also has a huge veranda which is perfect to sit on with a cup of coffee, and watch the new pinot cuttings being planted in the vineyard across the street.

We stayed at the Raford Inn for 3 nights, and loved every minute of it. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a very reasonably priced B&B, that is romantic, off the beaten path (yet only 6 miles from the town of Healdsburg), and is looking for something that feels like "home".

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
