We had a great visit to the Raford Inn. Gracious hosts, quality service, excellent food. All employees were attentive and courteous. It was a wonderful, restful experience. The hosts provided helpful guidance to dining and vineyard overviews.

The setting of this B & B is very beautiful, though fairly distant from town. Rooms are tastefully furnished with antiques. Breakfasts are served precisely at 9 am, but on the days we needed an earlier start, the staff provided a simple carry-out box of fruit and muffins. We stayed in the Blueberry Room which was located just off the... More

This is an outstanding place to stay if you want to get away from it all and be close to the wineries and all the Russian River area has to offer. Beautiful and historic, the only thing that tops the residence are the owners Dane and Rita. They posses a knowledge of the local wineries and restaurants, area attractions that... More

This inn is very charming and its location in front of a vineyard is relaxing and peaceful. The front porch is just delightful. The decor is vintage and antique in keeping with the age of the house. The wine and cheese on the porch in the afternoon was a great way to meet other guests and get to know the... More

Beautifully situated on the top of a hill on an old homestead, this B&B is charming and very reasonably priced! The owners are charming and extremely helpful and the view from the expansive front porch is fabulous! While the decor is not updated, it fits the overall feeling of the place. The Farmhouse Restaurant is just down the road as... More

I live very near this beautiful Inn, situated and surrounded by vineyards in Sonoma Wine Country. Their gardens are very beautiful and I met the owners Rita Welch and Dane Pitcher who are lovely people and Rita gave me a tour inside the beautiful Inn.

We stayed for 2nights on our way down to San Francisco from Portland, the quality of the hotel accommodation, breakfast, wine and cheese evenings on the verandah and everything else was more than 5 stars. A breath-taking setting amongst the vineyards & just 15 mins. from the centre of Healdsburg. There really are no improvements to be made, but make... More

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
