This is a great place to stay when visiting the Russian River Valley. Our cottage was a 1 bedroom, with a living room and was very clean and comfortable. The owner was very knowledgeable of the area and you can tell she loves working with everyone that stays there. The wine passport is worth it's wait in gold. Jenny, the...

The whole place was tranquil and homely. From the staff to the cottages to the pool, everything was just lovely. I couldn't have picked better if I tried. We booked for one night and immediately wanted to stay longer. The cottages were really clean and quaint with everything you needed for a short break; we had a kitchenette, but I...

The hotel is in the middle of a redwood forest, very quaint place with nice rooms. It is not a modern hotel but very well kept, rooms are very comfortable. They offer free bikes and a great breakfast buffet, they recently opened a patio with a BBQ area and a fire pit, great place to come to enjoy the wine...

After a long bike ride, Fern Grove is like checking into heaven. Found the rooms clean, the service friendly, and the garden grounds and redwoods perfect for our three day recovery. We'll be back next year!

We just returned from a four night stay at Fern Grove Cottages in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary and our experience far surpassed our expectations! Upon arrival, we were met with such warmth and hospitality from Jenny (the owner) and Sarah. They helped us check in and offered an excellent restaurant suggestion for dinner that evening. The historic cottages...

There have been several iterations of this property going back to the 1940s. In it's current incarnation, Fern Grover Cottages provides an excellent respite from the craziness that can be the Napa/Sonoma wine country. Nestled in towering trees at the north end of Guerneville, there are at least 20 cabins of varying sizes. Our cabin, number 20, was 2 bedrooms,...

What Can I say It's all just great. Great room, great location, great staff and service. How can you go wrong when there is a redwood growing through the deck just outside your door. The complimentary continental breakfast is fantastic, fruit and pastry, superb. We did a wine tour and we were helped with selecting wineries and given free passes...

We had a wonderful visit: The cottage was clean and comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming, and put out a nice spread for breakfast. It is right off of the main road, so there is some unavoidable road noise - it's a converted roadside motel, so as long as you know what you're getting into, it's all fine. Walkable to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fern Grove Cottages were built in the 1920's for vacationing guests visiting the Russian River area from nearby San Francisco. The tradition continues, as Fern Grove Cottages remains the Russian River's best getaway. The cottages have been lovingly restored and most still retain their original knotty pine ambiance and warm yesteryear memories. Everyone is welcome at Fern Grove including well-behaved pets and children, with prior notice.Fern Grove is located just three blocks from the village of Guerneville with its quaint shops and selection of wonderful restaurants. You may also enjoy an easy walk to the nearby swimming beach on the Russian River. And of course our guests are invited to enjoy Fern Grove's heated saline water swimming pool. ... more   less
