My wife and I loved staying here for our honeymoon! It was really relaxing and hospitable. The owners and staff are really nice. The continental breakfast was amazing and unlike anything we've ever had before! There's also lots to do around Guerneville that's fun and queer-friendly. We will definitely come stay again.

We loved the people. The staff was so nice. The breakfast was wonderful. The room was cute. There was always hot water. The grounds are spectacular. Too bad we didn't get much sleep either of the nights we stayed there. This had to be the worst mattress we've ever tried to sleep on. It was too squishy. Neither my husband...

If you're looking to experience a comfortable, peaceful respite in the midst of redwoods and flower filled gardens, this is it. Each cottage is full of charm & coziness because of fireplaces, your own patio & comfortable furnishings. Not fancy but very neat & clean. Modestly priced that includes a delicious & wholesome breakfast.

This is probably one of the best places to stay in Guerneville. When you arrive, you can't miss the beautiful gardens. The time and care put into the landscaping really shows. The cottage was nice, clean and very comfortable. The staff is friendly, and helpful. Having the use of their bikes was a nice perk. It's very easy to bike...

Fern Grove Cottages provided a perfect setting for a very relaxing time for our family. Couldn't have asked for better service, a better location, or more comfortable rooms. Saltwater pool is a HUGE plus!

This place is located a nice and easy walk to downtown where all of the shops and restaurants are located. Staff is friendly and the saline pool surrounded by some towering trees was relaxing. We stayed in the Spa Studio. Yes, it is small and basically a bedroom with a hot tub in it, but it sure was nice to...

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!”
