We are members of a wine club from San Diego. In Dec 2007, our wine club booked almost the entire house for our first annual trip. We had so much fun and enjoyed the Raford Inn, Dane and Rita, and the surroundings so much, that we immediately booked the entire house for our December 2008 trip. This is now our annual trip. Dane and Rita are great hosts, the home is warm and cozy, the food is delicious, and the setting is sublime. My husband and I have stayed in the Rosemary Room and the Angelica Room. The Rosemary Room is cozy, and The Angelica room is fabulous ... the largest room with a fireplace and wonderful view across the vineyards. This B&B is among the best B&B's we've have ever stayed in, and a great value too!
- 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
