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.

The breakfast every morning was great! Also the pool was extremely clean and they provide you with towels!

We go to Guerneville for an annual Summer Solstice party, so we've stayed at many facilities. I booked the most inexpensive room at this resort, and the picture looked okay, but the whole room was in the picture. it was the smallest room I have ever seen, but since we weren't in it much, it was okay. I saw some other rooms, and may book them next year, since the management, help, and food were all wonderful. Everyone at the desk took the time to explain things and make recommendations on wineries and points of interest. The complimentary breakfast was quite good, and you had the option of eating with other guests or taking it to your room. It was an easy walk to downtown, and there is a Mexican restaurant next door.

Fern Grove Cottages is always my destination for rest and relaxation when I want to get away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. I, highly, recommend these cute little cottages, nestled amongst the beautiful redwood trees in the Russian River Valley.

My stay here was awesome overall. Our room was very clean and quiet. The rooms have a rustic feel. My only gripe was that I wish the rooms had a ceiling fan to circulate the air, because it got stuffy very fast once we closed the windows.The grounds are very well maintained and beautiful we sat in the garden area for breakfast and relaxed there at night and watched the baby birds. The is bot heated, but they use salt water chlorine instead which feels amazing on your skin. The fresh baked scones and granola at breakfast is yummy. The staff are very friendly and helpful from the moment We arrived to greeting the housekeeping. I really enjoyed my stay. It was the perfect place for my birthday retreat.

We had a lovely stay at Fern Grove Cottages. The cabin was very cute, loved the old woodwork and stained glass. Furniture was comfortable, beds were comfortable. We had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this establishment and will likely stay here again.

Margaret gave us great options to fill two days we had in wine country, from the best way to approach the coast to some of the best vineyards. She and her B&B are very charming.

The setting in the redwoods and the quaint cabins really create the timeless Redwood Vacation feel. Margaret always helps make the most of wine tasting in the area and the breakfast is good but predictable and more protein options would be nice.
