We loved our stay at Raford Inn. We scheduled a massage upon arrival, what a great way to start a mini- vacation. The massage was right on site so once we arrived all we had to do was put on our robes and head upstairs. The Inn is absolutely sweet as you drive up. The grounds are very well maintained and Dane and Rita were excellent host's. We stayed in the Angelica room it was clean and very comfortable. Every room has its own bathroom, nothing “spa” like, but very friendly. Our room had its own private deck which over looked the valley, a great spot to have a glass of wine and relax. Speaking of wine, the hosts put out a wine bar at 5:30pm and have homemade cookies available all day so if you need a treat after a long day of wine touring and tasting, you're covered. The breakfast was very good. The location is very close to many great wineries and the town of Healdsburg has a lot of great restaurants within just a short drive from the Bed and Breakfast.

We have found a new home for our annual wine trip. Rita and Dane were so hospitable and fun - the weekend could not have been better. Food was delicious, rooms were spacious and the setting was beautiful. I would recommend this b & b to everyone.

We've been to the Raford Inn 2 years in a row and we would go back tomorrow if we didn't have work for a living. Dane, Rita, and their staff are the best hosts you can ask for and the accommodations they provide to their guests are outstanding. The property is simply amazing with terrific views all around.

Having a great place to stay, in one of the prettiest (and tastiest) areas in the country is the best way to enjoy the Sonoma side of the wine country. Simply the best. The Raford Inn is great.

We spent 3 days at the Raford Inn on the first part of our honeymoon and it could not have been better. We loved the location and views of the vineyards. The rooms were very comfortable and private. Rita and her staff in the kitchen out-do themselves with breakfast every day. Rita and Dana are the perfect hosts, ready to help in planning your day of wine tasting and dinner. We will definitely be back.

Our first experienc at the Raford Inn was overwhelming..
This old,charming place has a wonderful history, and overlooks
the beautiful vineyard of its neighbor.

But the physical attractiveness is only the beginning..
Rita and Dane the proprietors could not have been more
helpful,going out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable
we are sure we will be back again ..
They helped us celebrate our 56th wedding anniversary,and
made us feel very special.
They arranged for special
breakfast guests each day giving everyone an experienc they
could not have planned on, from a vineyard owner to a writer and his staff.
Thanks Rita and Dane for making it all happen.

Physically, the inn is to die for. And the rooms are charming.
But what separates this from the pack are the innkeepers, Dane and Rita, who bring the guests together - at breakfast and evening wine and cheese - in the most wonderful way imaginable. If ever there were the perfect combination of an idyllic location and perfect hosts this is it.
We stayed there at the end of August of 08, but if work hadn't called us back home, my wife and I would have probably stayed until the end of the year!
I am a hard judge of hotels and restaurants, but when someone(s) put their lives into creating something special, as Dane and Rita have done, and succeed as well as they have, then it makes all the questionable experiences fade away.
If ever there was a place my wife and I would return to at the first opportunity, this is it.

We simply loved this B&B.

The location is picturesque, with a wonderful view from the porch and very conveniently located to the nearby vineyards and towns. Some rooms, like ours, have private entry. The staff could not possibly be any more helpful and nice – they provided everything from recommendations to directions to booking reservations and such; and did not frown once at the way I abused they generosity during the daily 5:30 wine and cheese snack, but actually encouraged it :)

I was particularly impressed with breakfasts, which were served as if it were a very nice “tablecloth” restaurant.

All this came at a very reasonable price.

We definitely recommend it.

Just don’t go for a room with a view – it sometimes gets extremely hot in the valley and the less the exposure to sun, the better.
