My brother in law and I planned a surprise trip for our wives to Sonoma in April. We spent 3 nights at the Raford House and 1 night in Sonoma city and I wish we would have stayed all four at the Raford House, it was absolutley perfect. Rita and Dane are gracious hosts who go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. From pulling a few strings for restaurant reservations to the wonderful breakfasts Rita and Dane are top notch! The view of the vineyards from the porch as you have your morning coffee makes every day start out great. The location of the house in the country, away from the bustle of the towns, yet minutes from many beautiful vineyards and restaurants make it the ideal place for a relaxing, soothing vacation. When we go back to Sonoma we will never stay anywhere other than the Raford House and I have already recommended it to all family members and friends who have asked. The Raford House was bar none the greatest lodging experience we have ever had.

I was on a surprise trip with a friend. Looking at the website I felt this looks good. Upon arriving we found an old turn of the century house,not really up to the website said. IT is NOT just mins from Healdsburg square , but 15+mins away. This is a gross UNDER statement by them. As for the stay, if you like older homes out in the country this might work for you, ASK QUESTIONS be for you book!

After a failed attempt to visit the Raford Inn in January( bad weather over the summit from Reno) we finally were able to make it in March. What a great time. The owners and staff are quite friendly and professional. We were greeted with warmth amd friendliness. They were eager to help us find a place for dinner and were even willing to call a few "friends" to insure reservations. The Raford Inn is close to the ocean, all the wineries and many great places to see and visit. What more could you ask for... great food and wine, excellent service and absolutley wonderful owners and hosts, Rita and Dane. Thank you for a GREAT time. We will absolutely return.

This is a beautiful Victorian style bed and breakfast. The rooms are elegantly decorated with various antiques. I stayed there the night before my wedding and the innkeepers and staff made me feel right at home. There is a community dining room with a fireplace that where you can read and relax. I was able to use the table to put together my last minute wedding favors. There is a great porch with wicker chairs and sofas that you can sit in and watch the sunset over the vineyards. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with various plants and flowers. They also have free wireless internet so you can bring your laptop. They serve a hot breakfast cooked fresh each morning and it is delicious! If you are looking for someplace in the heart of Sonoma County this is it. They are close to wineries, antique shops, and state parks. I definately recommend staying here.

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.
