Great place to stay but the town itself was kind of gross with all the homeless people down the street, being from the East we were not used to that. But the Inn itself was great. Good breakfast,friendly staff. The cottage we stayed in was a 2 bedroom,not perfect but clean and comfortable.

We stayed here for three nights, following our city tour of San Francisco. The hosts were very welcoming and provide great information about places to eat, wineries to visit and local attractions. We opted for one of the smaller lodges and never intend to spend a long time in the accommodation and the room was clean and cosy, with a...

Jenny the owner saved our vacation. Air B&B house had not been cleaned. Fern Grove was suggested. Didn't know what we'd find, so thought it might be just one night. Jenny was so gracious and understanding. Next day offered a unit with full kitchen (we had ice chest full of food to make our own meals) She provided her highlighted...

These small cottages still retain the charm of the 1920s when they were built, though the amenities have been brought in to the modern era. Beautifully set amid towering redwoods and lush gardens, Fern Grove Cottages were ideally situated for our visit to the Russian River area. It was a brief drive to the many local wineries and only minutes...

We spent four nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our cottage was comfortable, clean and perfect for relaxing after a day of taking in the sights. Breakfast was delicious (great coffee!) and we enjoyed hearing tips and suggestions from other guests. Host Jennifer was extremely helpful with the wheres and whens of exploring the Russian River Valley.

We stayed four nights in early September and had a swell time. The two bedroom with kitchen cottage was comfortable and clean with good beds. Nights are quiet and the air is cool, so sleeping was no problem. It's an easy walk into town for the grocery store, pubs, restaurants and shops. The coast, vineyards, redwoods and river are all...

My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages for two nights in August. It's a very pretty place, comfortable, quiet and well-located. There's so much to do in the area that we didn't avail ourselves much of the pool or bikes. The breakfast was excellent, both days. Home-made granola, yogurt, many kinds of bread and muffins, beautiful fresh...

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

“We had cabin 17 - King 1 bdrm/living room Spa. Perfect amount of room with a mini-fridge and microwave (we didn't want to cook at all so opted out of kitchenette option). This cabin was absolutely perfect for us and living room table was big enough to do a 500 & 1000 piece puzzle on!”
