The Raford House is really a wonderful place to stay with a lot of history to tell. The owners (Dane and Rita) were very kind and vibrant people. Once you meet them they are instantly your friends. The last stay I had like this was in a nice B&B in northern England (which I would also highly recommend). I enjoyed talking with the owners at the evening wine social, and each morning during breakfast. Which brings me to breakfast….it was wonderful and most days I ate so much I was not hungry for lunch. Dane and Rita made great suggestions on places to visit, and even called in my dinner reservations.
My wife and I stayed in the Angelica Room, and loved it! We enjoyed a fire each night, and the calming atmosphere of the inn. We were so busy visiting wineries and hiking, that we never utilized the spa treatments available….but we will during our next visit.
I highly recommend this inn to anyone who enjoys a good B&B!
- 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
