From the moment you walk up the steps to the porch and are greeted by Dane and Rita you feel right at home. They have found their calling as B&B hosts. The inn is charming and well taken care of and has the most spetacular views.
Weather you want to explore in town or just relax this place is perfect. The breakfasts were wonderful. My wife and I even had a nice dinner we bought at Oakville grocery right on the porch while watching the sunset.
The other guests were all very nice and it was a great mix from NY, NJ, and California. By the end of weekend we had 8 new friends. The wine and cheese tasting on the porch every night at 5:30 - 7:00 was a nice way to just meet everybody and see what was on the docket for the evening and the next day.
Not only do I reccomend this B&B I look forward to returning to the Sage room for another peaceful weekend at the Raford Inn!!
- 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
