This place is fabulous. Very cosy cottage with all mod cons. Like a home from home and so welcoming. The complimentary champagne for my birthday was much appreciated. A brief walk to a lovely town with a great restaurant with an excellent blues duo and amazing pizza. Highly recommended x

Very pleasant stay; recommended dining in walking distance was super. The continental breakfast was tasty and in a comfortable/cozy environment. The hostess was very cordial, the grounds were very attractive and room sat far enough away from highway that there was no road noise.

This place was amazing! Cozy, clean, cottages in great location. A brief walk to cute friendly town with good food and bars. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area. They went above and beyond helping us plan our excursions. Complimentary breakfast and coffee were perfect. We will definitely be back.

The room was charming, super clean, an added bonus was the small porch area with two chairs. The heater worked very well. The grounds of the Ferngrove Cottages are beautiful. There is a large covered patio area with two barbecues and a fire pit available for use. The continental breakfast was substantial, and beautifully presented.

Quaint cottages from a 1920s holiday park set in a redwood forest. The interiors have been well restored and are now very comfortable and reasonably modern. We had a 2 bedroom with kitchen cottage, kitchen facilities were good, beds and living area comfortable. Cottage outdoor area ok, but not that private. BBQ facilities were excellent and the garden courtyard a...

This is a great place to stay when visiting the Russian River Valley. Our cottage was a 1 bedroom, with a living room and was very clean and comfortable.

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
