“Gem in the woods!”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

We stayed at Fern Grove for 2 nights. The cottages were darling and clean with comfy beds and within walking distance to town. The Armstrong redwoods were maybe 5 minutes away, don't miss them. We had a gas fireplace in our room with a little kitchen (microwave no stove). This worked out perfectly. The breakfast was wonderful. Homemade lemon curd, scones, granola and jams in the cozy dining room. The grounds were beautifuly maintained. Margrett the Inn Keeper and her staff were warm and friendly. The rates were afforadable. We would surley stay at Fern Grove again.

After finding this wonderful B and B purely by fluke it is unlikely that my wife and I will stay anywhere else when we visit the area again in the future. Make sure you talk to both innkeepers when you're staying fr recommendations for food (boon being my favourite), or wineries. The breakfast in the am is just the right amount of food to get you going for a day through wineries or adventuring into the outdoors.fantastic place for these two canadians

I had a wonderful timing staying at Fern Grove for the 3 days I was there. The pictures are a very good representation of what FG looks like, and my room was quite clean as other reviewers have said. Continental breakfast was excellent and the staff was wonderful. I wish I was still there.

I and my wife stayed 4 nights at Fern Grove Cottages in September and had a lovely time. The setting and gardens are lovely, the cottages very clean and quiet, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was very good with a variety of scones, pastries, cereals, juices, etc. Margaret the innkeeper was very helpful about the local area, including the restaurants. We were there for the scenery but some of the other couples were there for the wine tasting in the area, and Margaret was knowledgeable in both areas. We look forward to staying there again whenever we can.

It is close to Armstrong Redwoods State Preserve (lovely area to walk) and Bodega Bay, another nice seacoast area.

We were greeted by a very friendly staff menber and had a room with a spa. We have a room with a spa and was decorated with a butterfly theme. The grounds are beautiful and the lobby has a warm inviting area with a fireplace, where a homemade breakfast is served. Everything is homemade, wonderful scones, assorted nut breads, granola and yogurt, toast, bagels, coffe and teas. Close to shops and place to eat and the redwoods. Looking to our next visit.

Room Tip: every room is wonderful

More than a place to stay, Fern Grove Cottages is a quaint and memorable experience. Friendly, accommodating staff, beautiful grounds and "creature comforts" make this a destination for our future visits to Northern California. Can't recommend it more highly!

Room Tip: Cabin 1 is adjacent to a busy highway. Opt for a cottage toward the back of the property.

We were very pleased to find this little gem in Guerneville. The room we stayed in was quite small, but it was clean, quiet and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully maintained; it is like visiting a park. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast was much superior to that served in most hotels. We would definitely stay here again if we ever return to the area.
