#4 of 16 B&Bs / Inns in Healdsburg
GreenLeaders Silver level
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.

I booked a stay at the Raford Inn for the weekend following the fourth of July - paying for one night in advance as a deposit back on April 2nd. I made dinner reservations for the nights we were planning to be there and booked a brewery tour that I paid for up front (I'm a planner). With just over 2 weeks before I was supposed to arrive, I got a call that they had somehow double booked, and were giving my room to the person who booked through a third party booking website back in December and had no other room to offer me. They were apologetic, but I found this completely unacceptable as their mistake left me scrambling to find another place at the last minute. Given that I booked at the beginning of April, I'm not sure how they didn't discover the mistake until the end of June - if I had been told back in April I still would have had time. They offered to email other Inns nearby and found one in Guerneville that they gave my information and said would create a booking for me, but that was 5 miles further in the wrong direction for our intended destination (Healdsburg), and upon viewing the alternate accommodation on Yelp, it was not on par with the photos of the grounds and rooms at the Raford. It had good reviews, but was a clear step down from the type of accommodation that I had booked. In the end I booked a replacement Inn in Healdsburg, walking distance to everything there. I paid an extra $110/night as my options are now much more limited at the last minute, but as we are now right in town I'm hoping the convenience justifies the cost. I cannot recommend the Raford Inn - paying your deposit up front does not guarantee your accommodation. They just hold on to hundreds of dollars for almost 3 months and leave you rethinking your carefully researched and planned out trip.

We spent 2 nights at the Raford Inn. The first night we were welcomed by Dane and Rita the owners. They are both pleasant, welcoming and full of information about the Sonoma area and Napa. Breakfast consisted of fresh apple compote and a scone complete with figs and cranberries from their land. The quiche was delicious also. Coffee and fresh orange juice completed our meal. Our room was the Angelica and had a door leading to a porch that overlooked the vineyard. Superb!!! On a return trip we will not hesitate to book our stay with Dane and Rita at the Raford Inn.

Love this place. We chose to stay in the same room as our previous visit since the Blueberry room is spacious with fireplace and amazing vineyard views. Breakfast was yummy and the happy hour is a fun time to chat with the hosts and other guests. Fresh baked cookies can be found in the lobby if you need a treat at any time. Given the price of rooms in Healdsburg, this Inn provides a great value to go along with the unique B & B experience. You can reach town or many wineries within a few minutes. Do be aware that cell phone service is tough in this area. The Raford does have wifi and you can connect your phones and other devices easily. The Raford is an old historic Inn so this is the spot for those who appreciate and respect the old world style charm from a bygone era. Bathrooms and comforts are up to speed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Do not hesitate to give this place a try.

We only stayed two nights but we had a lovely stay. You will need to drive or get hire a lyft (uber isn't great there) to get you into Healdsburg (it's about 15 mins into town) but there are a lot of great places to eat in Healdsburg so well worth the trip. I also have to give a special shout out to them for 2 fabulous breakfasts. I have pretty extreme food allergies and they totally accommodated my needs and both mornings my meals were delicious. The view from the hill is wonderful!
