We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Raford and found it a very enjoyable introduction to the Russian River Valley. Hosts Rita and Dane and the team there go out of their way to make you welcome and make your stay as pleasant as possible whatever your interests. We stayed in the Angelica room which was beautifully appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and Dane's personal vineyard tour was great fun and interesting too. It was lovely to see hummingbirds and orioles while you enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda chatting with the hosts and other guests.
- 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
