About

Fern Grove Cottages were built in the 1930's as vacation units for San Francisco families visiting the Russian River. The cottages have been lovingly restored and offer charm and comfort among redwoods and beautiful gardens. Cottages have TV's, some have spa tubs and some have fireplaces. Breakfast features homemade items and seasonable fruits, jams and jellies from our gardens. A heated pool and a barbecue area add to the fun. A perfect location for canoe trips on the river, the ocean, hiking and biking among the redwoods and wine tasting at over 160 wineries.

Great Getaway!

4.0 on December 08, 2014

Service was very friendly. You get an actual key for the rooms. We ate at the taqueria next door for dinner which was fantastic. Very quite during the wee hours. Bed could have been a bit more comfortable but didn't inhibit my sleep at all. We stayed in the single bed spa room. There is no shower so the next day you need to use the spa bath which may be a negative to some people. Didn't stay for the breakfast but there are plenty of diners within walking distance. There is also a Safeway within walking distance too. Would definitely stay here again. Overall 4/5


good place to stay for wine tasting

3.4 on November 23, 2014

I stayed 2 nights with family and friends for wine tasting in the area. The wine passport is great and the service is outstanding. Our room had a kitchen with all the basics needed. Living room with gas fireplace is cozy. Bedrooms are on the small side with no space for luggage and barely enough room to walk around the beds. That's the only area lacking. We would stay here again.


Great stay great place

4.8 on November 06, 2014

Stayed here for a weekend wedding. Most guess stayed across the street and after comparing notes we definitely had the better place. No spiders, a TV, a delicious breakfast and much better price. The owner was very sweet and helpful with a few things we needed. If we make it back to the area we will definitely stay here again.


Very nice time at the cottages

The rooms are small, but very nice. The entire facility is very clean and well kept. The inn keepers and the staff go out of their way to make your stay very special. I strongly recommend this as a place to stay in the Russian River. It is also within walking distance to the town.


Great Place

Babymoon at Fern Grove Cottages

4.0 on October 21, 2014

My husband and I left our 2-year-old for the first time to spend a couple of nights away before our next baby arrives in under 2 months. We really enjoyed the sweet and comfortable cottage. The studio cottage was small, but exactly what we needed. The couple's jacuzzi tub really was big enough for my slightly hefty hubby and my 7-month pregnant belly! The grounds are so incredibly sweet, with welcoming lush gardens all around. The overall experience is quaint in the best way. There are some fancier resorts in Guerneville where you can pay much more for very modern and much less cozy accommodations. I am really glad we chose Fern Grove.


Enjoyed our stay

3.6 on October 16, 2014

Being old, this reminded me of road trips when I was a kid, but in a good way. Clean room, close to everything in Guernville, decent breakfast and very helpful staff. Will stay here again when I'm visiting the area.


Best place to stay in Guerneville (IMHO)

4.0 on October 16, 2014

We stay here every year as part of a bicycle ride from the Bay Area to Guerneville and back. We think it is the best place in town for a stay. The rooms are very clean and well-furnished ,and the breakfast is great.


A Wonderful Surprise

Such a sweet place! Tucked away, charming, quiet. Very much enjoyed my stay!


What a great spot!

4.2 on October 01, 2014

Bungalow rooms and walking distance to town! My wife loved it the moment we drove up... all the landscaping, bungalows and coastal redwood feel said "relaxing vacation" from the start. The breakfast is simple and do-it-yourself... but good, just what I needed. The people were super helpful and friendly. All-in-all a good value and I would be happy to stay there again!
