“Could not have been better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We finished our Californian road trip at the Raford and had an amazing time at this extraordinary place. I really cannot think of a single thing I would have preferred to be different. We took home precious memories of sitting on the front porch with a glass of whine, hummingbirds in the air, and looking over the vineyard.

Wonderful hosts. Dane and Rita made everyone feel so welcome. Especially enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese with other guests on the veranda. The location is so beautiful. Stayed in the blueberry room, lovely. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I were there in Sept. and stayed in the "Blueberry Room." Our only regret is that we only stayed 1 night! Next time we'll stay longer and take Dane's wine-making tour. Beautiful country-side, immaculate rooms, and great breakfast! Dane and Rita were very warm and accommodating.

We were in in the area for a Healdsburg wedding and decided to stay at the Raford Inn for several nights as we also wanted to wine taste the Russian river area. Can't think of a nicer time than our stay at the Inn. Rita and Dane are the best hosts and made us feel very welcome. Each evening they invited a local vintner to come present their wine for a tasting at the Inn. The breakfasts were great and the scenery was the best. Would stay there again on our next trip to the area.

These were the 4 most relaxing days my wife and I have spent together In years . Dane and Rita could not be more welcoming. The wine and stories on the porch made me forget I had a job to return too! The room was perfect. Just the right size,no TV, a nice jazz station on the radio, clean linens and comfortable bed. The breakfast was different every day and was delicious. We will be back sooner then later. Thank you so much for the world class hospitality by you and the entire team.

Our first trip to Sonoma Valley definitely will not be our last due to our wonderful stay at the Raford Inn. From the first glance we had of this quaint welcoming home away from home we were smitten. Rita, Dane and their staff are warm, welcoming and look out for your every need. DO NOT let the location description scare you away it is the perfect location. Close to everything with a breathtaking view. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Rosemary room was wonderful.
