My wife and I recently spent four days at the Raford Inn. We love the Healdsburg area but this was our first time staying at this wonderful Inn but it won’t be our last. It sits in a spectacular location up on a hill with palm trees and surrounded by vineyards. The large front porch/veranda was an excellent setting to relax or enjoy the wine hour with other guests with a million dollar view! The Innkeepers, Rita and Dane were wonderful hosts, their breakfast was always delicious and the complementary wine and cheese hour each evening was a nice way to meet other guests. Their recommendations of local restaurants was very helpful and they are both very knowledgeable regarding the surrounding area. Their younger staff that assists them was very professional and helpful as well. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Upon checking out we enjoyed Dane’s tour of his organic vineyards and award winning winery. They both clearly have a passion for running this B&B and it shows.
- 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
