Quaint but very comfortable accommodation, really excellent continental breakfast, wonderfully situated to explore regions such as Alexander, Anderson Napa Sonoma and Russian River Valley wine regions and other things to do ; redwood forest walk canoeing on Russian River , coastal drives etc. And the hosts are warm and knowledgeable.

We had a wonderful visit: The cottage was clean and comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming, and put out a nice spread for breakfast. It is right off of the main road, so there is some unavoidable road noise - it's a converted roadside motel, so as long as you know what you're getting into, it's all fine. Walkable to... More

The charming little cottages nestled in the Redwoods of Guerneville were the highlight of our trip to the Russian River Valley. The owner and innkeeper truly possessed an endless supply of information and advice on the town itself, restaurants, and most importantly...wine tasting. Her passion for her inn, the surrounding area, and hosting guests is incredible. Be sure to enjoy... More

We stayed at fern grove a number of years ago and it was rustic and fun. We went back a few weeks ago and it has been cleaned up and polished while retaining it humble rustic feel. The cabins are quite cozy and the grounds have magnificent gardens to walk around. We enjoyed a BBQ dinner on the patio area... More

What a charming discovery this old-fashioned cottage resort was for our meandering trip along the Russian River! The setting is truly a fern grove inside a redwood grove, as ferns as tall as I surrounded our cottage steps, and redwoods towered over and even through some units. Our cottage had a great front porch and enough room for two. It... More

Just a couple of hours North of San Francisco, Fern Grove Cottages in Guerneville, is a great place to relax and unwind. The owners are wonderful and very helpful with suggestions on where to go, eat and even the best driving routes to take. They have about 20 cottages, all very quaint, clean and nestled into the forest edge. I... More

The blooming dahlia garden greeted my daughter, granddaughter and I each time we walked up to our darling cottage. We enjoyed Jennifer's homemade granola with every morning's break-feast. Jennifer and her staff were so lovely and everything was done with much care and attention to detail. We could walk to great restaurants, a nice organic market, and a 4 star... More

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

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
