We only stayed one night but were checked in promptly and shown to our room. If you want to be close to Healdsburg Square etc., I'd stay on Healdsburg Square, If you want the country, then, when compared to other costs elsewhere, it's a good value .Very nice staff in an older house out in the country. Very clean and...

My friends all said "Russian River" when I said "Napa" and we're happy they did. Napa and even Sonoma are very busy, impossibly busy, on high season weekends. Think parking lot, not highway at times. Healdsburg with all its restaurants is an exciting (in the dark and not completely sober) 20 minute drive north but there are probably more restaurants...

My only concern in writing this review is that so many people will stay at the Raford that someday there won't be room for us. My wife and I have stayed at the Raford twice - for a full week each time. The fact that we returned for a full week probably tells you most of what you need to...

Beautiful facility and public spaces, wrap around porch with a lovely view (including humming birds and vineyards), large, clean, comfortable room to spread out and relax, hosts that are friendly and helpful but know how to give you space, yummy breakfasts. What more can you ask for? Dane offered, and we accepted, a tour through his vineyard with an explanation...

We stayed at the Raford Inn during a 4-night stay in Sonoma County in mid-August. The innkeepers and the staff were all very gracious and knowledgable hosts. Our room was excellent (very nice shower!) and the breakfasts were wonderful. We'll be back.

We only stayed here for a night but wish we stayed longer. Dane and Rita were welcoming and very helpful to make recommendations for restaurant and make reservations. The shared wine and cheese with all of the guests each evening on their expansive porch which over looks spectacular vineyards. After breakfast Dane shows guest how he makes his own wine....

When I think of the Raford Inn, I recall Dane & Rita's wine & cheese each evening on the porch overlooking vineyards, delicious breakfasts, comparing notes on restaurants & vineyards with fellow guests, and our gracious & knowledgeable hosts themselves. Not only did they suggest excellent restaurants & wineries, they also helped us deal with 2 cases of wine that...

We returned once again to the place of our honeymoon nearly 10 years ago - we determined it was our 5th or 6th stay at the Raford Inn, and we see more in our future. It's obvious that Rita and Dane love this home and they translate that into a comfortable stay for their guests. The view from the porch...

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Raford Inn. The entire experience was excellent and memorable. Dane and Rita are excellent innkeepers and hosts. From the initial greeting to the tour of Dane's vineyard and wine making on our last day, we felt like valued guests. The breakfasts around the table were pleasurable, the wine and cheese gathering...

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
