We just completed our third stay at Raford Inn and it just keeps getting better. Dane and Rita are the best, the breakfast are great and you can't beat the wine and cheese in the afternoon on the front porch. Each stay we have picked a different room and find them all equally good. Each time we meet new and interesting people. Lots of great restaurants close by, just can't beat the location if you want to be out in the country.

We stayed at this inn for three nights after touring for a week in northern California. It was a most welcome respite. The innkeepers were most friendly and helpful. The Inn is in a beautiful and quiet countryside location. Wine and cheeses on the front porch each afternoon was most relaxing after a day of touring the surrounding vineyards. The full breakfasts each morning were varied, bountiful, and delicious. The fresh baked cookies several times a day were something we definitely looked forward to consuming with gusto. Our stay couldn't have been more pleasant.

Dane and Rita are definitely the hosts with the most....they made every detail of our visit very enjoyable. From the wonderful exquisite breakfasts and the comfortable sleeping arrangements, there wasn't a single complaint! They treat you as if you are family and are there to take care of anything you need! This house is nestled right in the heart of wine country and the fresh country air was what we really needed. I loved the fact they also brought in a local winery for the wine and cheese hour that they host daily.

My husband and I plan to return with another couple next year and I would recommend it to many others!

We've stayed at many B&B's and this is near the top. We were here for 5 nights and stayed in the Rosemary room. A nice sized room on the back of the house. Private entrance. The hospitality of Rita and Dane, the owners, is far above many. They welcome you into their home from the moment you get to the front door. The "wine happy hour" is a great touch. Local wine's and some nice cheese's along with talk of what happened in our day and what we may look forward to the next. Their location to both Russian River and Dry Creek Valley's is perfect. That along with the redwoods right down the road...what more could you ask for? Kristin their inn keeper makes the most healthy creative breakfasts; large portions. No need for lunch!

We loved our stay at the Raford House (Blueberry Room). We have stayed at B&Bs and Inns for many years, so we have a mental checklist of items we like to see when we arrive. This Inn met almost all our requirements. We felt the bedding was a little dated but aside from that, we can't say enough about the owner/innkeeper. Dane was fabulous. He clearly loves what he does and it shows in how he cares about the Inn, its grounds, knowledge of the surrounding area, and his unmatched care for his guests. Kristen was helping, and she is amazing with the hospitality, cooking and baking. Please take our advice and the advice of so many who have stayed at Raford House and book a room! The Russian River Valley area is so beautiful, and after you get back from wine tasting and sightseeing you get to experience the smell and taste of Kristen's home-baked cookies.

This little B & B was amazing! As soon as we walked in we were treated like family! Dane and Rita and the entire staff at some of the nicest people you will meet. The food was amazing and the rooms are wonderful! We were there for our honeymoon and we couldn't stop talking about how wonderful everything was when we returned! Great location for day trips too.This was well worth the money!

Beautiful accomodations in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The inn sits on a hillside amongst fields of grapevines. The rooms are comfortable and each have their own bathroom. The innkeepers are very friendly, funny and wait on you hand and foot! The breakfast is unique each day and always delicious! The location is in the heart of the Russian River Valley vineyards but about a 20 minute drive to Healdsburg. Many great dinner restaurants near the inn.
