We stayed at the Raford Inn for 4 nights in July, 2013. It is a very good property physically, very well maintained, and an excellent property from the standpoint of centrality to area attractions -- nearly everything of interest, from the Pacific to the Russian River to Sonoma wine country is within a 30 minutes drive -- and the grounds are beautiful with breathtaking quiet and gorgeous vistas across vineyards. The dozens and dozens of hummingbirds are captivating. Hosts Dane and Rita and their staff could not be more accommodating. Daily wine and cheese is a wonderful opportunity to meet other guests and the daily hot-cooked breakfasts are superb. We shall return - with great pleasure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
