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...

Very nice and informative hosts, very clean rooms, great heated pool . Beautiful grounds, clean and beautiful. Very convenient to town and the pacific ocean. Host was very helpful with guidance to Guerneville as well as the Sonoma winery's. Any thing we needed or asked about was given immediate attention. Breakfast was delicious with many choices.

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...

We had a fantastic experience! Very nice getaway. Grounds were beautiful, staff/owners were very helpful. Fun to cruise on the bikes. The mimosas were a nice treat as well. Guests were very friendly and welcoming.

My wife and I loved staying here for our honeymoon! It was really relaxing and hospitable. The owners and staff are really nice. The continental breakfast was amazing and unlike anything we've ever had before! There's also lots to do around Guerneville that's fun and queer-friendly. We will definitely come stay again.

We loved the people. The staff was so nice. The breakfast was wonderful. The room was cute. There was always hot water. The grounds are spectacular. Too bad we didn't get much sleep either of the nights we stayed there. This had to be the worst mattress we've ever tried to sleep on. It was too squishy. Neither my husband...

If you're looking to experience a comfortable, peaceful respite in the midst of redwoods and flower filled gardens, this is it. Each cottage is full of charm & coziness because of fireplaces, your own patio & comfortable furnishings. Not fancy but very neat & clean. Modestly priced that includes a delicious & wholesome breakfast.

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
