“Most Charming Inn”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

We spent three wonderful days with another couple that had previously been there and highly recommended it. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the Angelica room, with our own porch and outside entrance, it was spacious and very comfortable. Rita and Dane (the owners) made you feel as if you were at home. Very accommodating and pleasant. The tour at the end of our stay was very informative and interesting. Breakfast is freshly prepared every morning, different each day, fresh fruits, quiches, sausage, and even freshly baked scones. Truly a place to come back to.

My husband and I have stayed at the Raford Inn once a year for the past eight years, and wouldn't stay anywhere else! Rita and Dane are such wonderful hosts, and make our every one of our stays a memorable one. Some of our favorite memories from our wine country trips are the wine and cheese hours at the Inn each evening. Rita and Dane always join in, and it's a fun atmosphere to mingle with the other guests. They have some of the best wineries come to pour - this past weekend Twomey came, who is one of our favorites!. The Inn is in the most beautiful location, surrounded by vineyards with amazing views from the large, comfy front porch. I can't say enough about this very special place!

My wife and I recently spent two days at the Raford Inn with friends from our home town. Just the view upon arriving is impressive—the grape vines, palm trees and spectacular Victorian Inn. From the front porch the view of the distant hills and the vineyards in the valley below is beautiful, a great place to read the paper with a cup of coffee before breakfast (or with a glass of wine at sunset). Rita and Dane, the innkeepers, were perfect hosts, providing complementary wine and hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 each evening and helping us select the perfect restaurant for dinner. If you need to know anything abut the history of the area, just ask them, they have great stories to tell and recommendations for sites to see. Breakfasts were tasty and creative. I told Jennifer, who cooked our first breakfast, that the breakfast plate deserved a picture as a work of art! Our room was very comfortable and clean, with a free standing gas stove and a shower built for two! With help from Rita and Dane selecting the best wineries to tour we had a marvelous two days. Everyone really liked Dane’s wine tour (which we missed!). Need more time here!

Innkeepers, Rita & Dane, became instant friends during our 2 night stay. They shared their home with us and made my wife and me and four other friends, 2 couples, feel welcome and relaxed. The sun room and dining room were the go-to places for conversation and wine/snacks, joined most times by the innkeepers. Wine tasting was a primary goal of our trip. Rita & Dane are very knowledgeable of the local appellations and are friends of several winery owners, therefore their suggestions on what to visit were taken to heart. Dane is a wine-making hobbyist, and can provide detailed information about what goes into the production of quality wines.
The two breakfasts were of top quality and filling. The breakfast cooks knew how to satisfy.
Our room was a smaller room with plenty of room for 2, including a large bathroom.
We are looking forward to our next visit to the Raford Inn.

A group of us visited Healdsburg for the "Wine Trail Weekend". It was a fantastic weekend and we were honored to stay at the historic and centrally located Raford Inn B&B. The hosts were incredibly accommodating and the breakfasts were amazing! Our room was downstairs and opened onto a large porch. It was perfect for our group to gather for a glass of wine before bed or appetizers before went to dinner. Even though it was January, the weather was amazing and the view was incredible!

The Raford Inn has along history in the area. As you drive from the main road you see this lovely home on a small hill with grape vines in front. The location is great for visiting the many vineyards and for visiting Healdsburg. Our hosts, Rita and Dane, were warm and welcoming. We sat with them in the evenings sipping wine and conversing with them and fellow guests. The rooms are decorated with antiques and a comfortable bed. Our room had a working fireplace. The breakfasts were delicious. I would definitely stay here again if and when we visit the area in the future.

Room Tip: The Blueberry room is on the main floor with a four poster bed and working fireplace.

We stayed at the Raford while visiting wineries in the Healdsburg area based on a recommendation from our daughter, who had stayed there previously. Very friendly innkeeper, Tawny, and the owners Dane and Rita made all the guests feel at home. Awesome breakfast made by Tawny and served to all the guests together.

After breakfast, Dane is usually around to give you a tour of his personal vineyard and wine making facility. While you may have had tours at the big places… nothing compares to getting the 'cooks' tour from someone who does it for the love of producing his own wines for himself.

We're looking forward to being back and spending more time in the area.
