We stayed at fern grove a number of years ago and it was rustic and fun. We went back a few weeks ago and it has been cleaned up and polished while retaining it humble rustic feel. The cabins are quite cozy and the grounds have magnificent gardens to walk around. We enjoyed a BBQ dinner on the patio area...

We love everything about Ferngrove Cottages. The staff is friendly and helpful, the grounds are beautiful, great breakfast and the cabins are clean, cozy and a little rustic. They have bikes for you to use, BBQ's if you don't want to eat out.

What a charming discovery this old-fashioned cottage resort was for our meandering trip along the Russian River! The setting is truly a fern grove inside a redwood grove, as ferns as tall as I surrounded our cottage steps, and redwoods towered over and even through some units. Our cottage had a great front porch and enough room for two. It...

Just a couple of hours North of San Francisco, Fern Grove Cottages in Guerneville, is a great place to relax and unwind. The owners are wonderful and very helpful with suggestions on where to go, eat and even the best driving routes to take. They have about 20 cottages, all very quaint, clean and nestled into the forest edge. I...

The blooming dahlia garden greeted my daughter, granddaughter and I each time we walked up to our darling cottage. We enjoyed Jennifer's homemade granola with every morning's break-feast. Jennifer and her staff were so lovely and everything was done with much care and attention to detail. We could walk to great restaurants, a nice organic market, and a 4 star...

Fern Grove Cottages is in a beautiful setting right on River Road although you would never know it with the peace and quiet! Great hosts and a nice pool. Cottages are cute and functional with a great "river vacation" decor. The owners have a good knowledge of the river area and will set you up with nice wineries. Close to...

Cute cozy cottages, tucked away among beds of flowers, bushes and trees. Cottages contain all you need for a good night sleep. Can sit in front of your cottage or in garden with your glass of (Russian river) wine... Large fire pit, BBQ, pool. Breakfast was very good. Best of all: the owner Jenny who gives the best advise where...

We very much enjoyed our three-night stay at the Fern Grove Cottages. We had a one-bedroom cottage with a spa tub, and, while the cottage was not large, it allowed us to spread out and to feel more at home. The cottages have a rustic feel, which is fitting for the surroundings, that includes redwood trees, as well as some...

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
