“Excellant B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

Dane, Rita and their staff make you feel at home. Breakfast was wonderful and it was great that they were using so much fresh food grown on the property. It is easy to spend a lot of time on the porch watching the hummingbirds while noshing on wine and cheese. The wine tour after you checkout is worth it but don't wait till then to walk through their on-site vineyard.

Room Tip: We were in the Blueberry room which is adjacent to the porch and across the hall from the breakfast...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful B & B.The breakfasts were wonderful and the wine and cheese evenings were fabulous.Rita and Dane are the best! The only thing missing was early morning coffee and I do mean early since we can usually beat the roosters.But,I always travel with coffee bags and there was hot water proviced so we coudl wait it out until 8:00a.m. Not to be missed is Dane's wine.His passion for growing the grapes and taking you through the steps to the finished process is evident on his face.The rooms are beautifully furnished with the utmost attention to detail and spotlessly clean.Every effort is made to make their guests feel special and welcome.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sage room but all looked lovely.

This was our 2nd stay at this bed & breakfast. We love the location, with great views of vineyards in every direction. The owners are wonderful people and prices are very reasonable for this area. We will keep coming back as often as we can!

Stayed here in mid-September. This is the 2nd time for my wife & I at the Raford Inn. Rita, Dane & staff are wonderful. This year we did Dane's wine tour during our 3 day stay,and learned great deal about the process of wine-making.Loved sitting on the porch in the evening with wine & cheese put out by Dane & Rita. Dinner? For steaks, Stark's Steakhouse in Santa Rosa, Italian,
Union Hotel in Occidental. Both are excellent & just 15-20 min. from the Raford.We will back next
year.

We arrived at 6:45am and sat in the car until about 7am, our balloon trip had been blown out for the second time that week. I walked into the quiet house only to be greeted by Inn Keeper and handy man 'Oliver'. After 3 minutes I knew we were in great hands. Oliver turned on the coffee as I explained our misfortunes, then he explained that if we would like to get to 'work' on the farm, they would be making wine today. Say no more, out to the car to grab my half sleeping wife, made her a cup of joe and off to 'work' we went!
We meet up with Dane and Rita soon thereafter, the BIG bosses as well as the proprietors. The best way to describe them ~ 'Top Shelf'!
A short lesson on how to 'greet', 'cut', and 'thank' the vines and we were off and working, hours later we were still hard at it 'pressing' grapes from a previous pick.
I could continue, but the bottom line, our consolation prize of 'Making Wine' was a great climax to our trip. Our short time at the Inn was complimented with great food and good time with new friends.
If you are looking for a beautiful location, this is one to keep in mind as you tour around wine country. Thank you and we shall return.

My wife and I had a lovely time in this historic home in a rural setting in Sonoma wine country. Dane and Rita were warm and welcoming hosts with lots of great information on the local wineries and restaurants. Our room was on the ground level with adequate size, comfortable bed, and large bathroom. Breakfast was served in a well-lit dining area, well prepared with excellent quality. There is also a wine and cheese reception on the front porch in the late afternoon. The grounds have lovely gardens and are surrounded by acres and acres of grape vines. We will plan to return here on our future trips to Sonoma county.

Found this place from an out of town friend who was visiting the area and drove up to have lunch with her. The moment I walked up to the front door and turned to see that view, I knew I had to come back with my husband for a weekend getaway. I could have sat there for hours lost in the view of the vineyard and watching the hummingbirds. We both thought the B&B experience was greatly enhanced because Rita and Dane make you feel like family. The little touches such as wine on the patio every evening which just allows everyone to get to know each other and share what they did during the day, to the pre-breakfast coffee chats and then the wonderful breakfast before your day begins. We have stayed at a few B&B's and this one is really going into the favorite list. We met a great group of people and had an excellent experience...we will be back!
