Fern Grove Cottages is in a beautiful setting right on River Road although you would never know it with the peace and quiet! Great hosts and a nice pool. Cottages are cute and functional with a great "river vacation" decor. The owners have a good knowledge of the river area and will set you up with nice wineries. Close to... More

Cute cozy cottages, tucked away among beds of flowers, bushes and trees. Cottages contain all you need for a good night sleep. Can sit in front of your cottage or in garden with your glass of (Russian river) wine... Large fire pit, BBQ, pool. Breakfast was very good. Best of all: the owner Jenny who gives the best advise where... More

We very much enjoyed our three-night stay at the Fern Grove Cottages. We had a one-bedroom cottage with a spa tub, and, while the cottage was not large, it allowed us to spread out and to feel more at home. The cottages have a rustic feel, which is fitting for the surroundings, that includes redwood trees, as well as some... More

Fern Grove Cottages were just what we'd hoped they would be and that is quiet, set in beautiful gardens and right in a redwood wood grove. Our one bedroom cottage had a kitchenette and a small deck as all the cabins do and it's just super relaxing. The pool is very clean and nice with a great lounge chairs and... More

Quaint little cottages at the edge of Guernville. Think we had room 12 which was cosy but fine for our needs. Bathroom is good with a nice shower and powerful toilet. Bed was comfy. Some cottages have fires and a jacuzzi in them too. The best thing about this place was the breakfast which is included in the prize. The... More

Cabins are cute, location is very convenient (you can walk everywhere), outdoor area has been redone and is a great place to gather with friends, have an outdoor dinner that you cook up on the propane or charcoal grills that they provide. Pool area lovely. Owners lovely and helpful.

I had read a lot of positive things about the "friendly" proprietress, so I can only think that what I experienced was a "bad day". You never know someone's personal story. It started with a confusing explanation of how the wine passes worked and ended with a very snotty good bye after I had been asked to be released from... More

We just celebrated our anniversary at Fern Grove Cottages last weekend and have nothing but great things to say about it! The landscaping is beautiful with many different kinds of plants and flowers everywhere you look. The pool is very nice and heated too. The cottages are charming and clean and have comfortable beds. The maids folded our towels in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fern Grove Cottages were built in the 1920's for vacationing guests visiting the Russian River area from nearby San Francisco. The tradition continues, as Fern Grove Cottages remains the Russian River's best getaway. The cottages have been lovingly restored and most still retain their original knotty pine ambiance and warm yesteryear memories. Everyone is welcome at Fern Grove including well-behaved pets and children, with prior notice.Fern Grove is located just three blocks from the village of Guerneville with its quaint shops and selection of wonderful restaurants. You may also enjoy an easy walk to the nearby swimming beach on the Russian River. And of course our guests are invited to enjoy Fern Grove's heated saline water swimming pool. ... more   less
