We were incredibly satisfied with our stay at Fern Grove. The cabin was cozy, clean, warm and had everything we needed for 4 days of relaxation and adventure. The grounds are beautiful with flowers everywhere and the parking was safe and easily accessible. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast every morning we were there and loved mingling with other guests staying...

Loved this charming array of cottages nestled in the redwoods (but still very sunny). Just a few minutes walk to downtown Guerneville but quieter than downtown. Breakfast is hearty and delicious, the sitting room is cozy and bright and the owners could not be nicer. They know everything about the area and give excellent guidance on the local wineries and...

We had a one bedroom cottage with living room and wet bar. The breakfasts were good. Jenny, our hostess, was a sweetheart. She was very helpful recommending wineries, information on nearby Armstrong Redwoods Preserve, restaurant recommendations, printing out information for us. Even offering a room for our daughter who was visiting wineries with us. The location was great, accessible to...

Only stayed one night, but the room was excellent overall. Very comfortable and well apppointed. It's right off the highway but feels like your tucked away in the forest. This keeps the rooms surprisingly cool. the only issue was the hot tub jets didn't work, but they went out of their way to make that right. The owners seem to...

Very quiet, clean, and comfortable. Just straight up warm human exchange with owner. Most definitely plan on revisiting. Close in enough to take strolls to dining and shops and galleries; all of which were very pleasurable.

I was impressed from the first phone call I made to get a registration. Jenny was so helpful and told me about a discount offer that let us stay an extra night. The room was cozy, with a fireplace that was perfect for the rainy nights and my wife and I felt so welcomed with the Valentine's Day card and...

My girlfriend and I spent Valentine's weekend here and we were both extremely impressed by virtually everything provided to us! The Jacuzzi tub and fireplace made it all the more romantic, and the provided Wine Tasting Passport (which came with staff personal suggestions) was an amazing addition. Despite arriving on one of the wettest seasons in the last few decades,...

We had a wonderful stay at Fern Grove Cottages over Super Bowl weekend. The owners are really great. They provided a hearty continental breakfast every morning (much better than hotel breakfasts), and it was nice to sit around the big table in the main house and chat with other people staying there (although you also have the option of taking...

I booked a cottage for my daughter and 3 friends for birthday weekend. They had a great time. The staff was very nice and helpful, they recommended some great restaurants, walking distance to town and the cottage was clean and cozy. They had a wonderful time and could not stop raving about this place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fern Grove Cottages were built in the 1920's for vacationing guests visiting the Russian River area from nearby San Francisco. The tradition continues, as Fern Grove Cottages remains the Russian River's best getaway. The cottages have been lovingly restored and most still retain their original knotty pine ambiance and warm yesteryear memories. 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

“We had cabin 17 - King 1 bdrm/living room Spa. Perfect amount of room with a mini-fridge and microwave (we didn't want to cook at all so opted out of kitchenette option). This cabin was absolutely perfect for us and living room table was big enough to do a 500 & 1000 piece puzzle on!”
