We had a wonderful stay at Fern Grove Cottages over Super Bowl weekend. The owners are really great. They provided a hearty continental breakfast every morning (much better than hotel breakfasts), and it was nice to sit around the big table in the main house and chat with other people staying there (although you also have the option of taking...

I booked a cottage for my daughter and 3 friends for birthday weekend. They had a great time. The staff was very nice and helpful, they recommended some great restaurants, walking distance to town and the cottage was clean and cozy. They had a wonderful time and could not stop raving about this place.

Fern Grove Cottages is our favorite place in the Russian River! We have stayed several times over the years and it's always perfect! The new innkeepers are great and offer a fantastic experience with a homemade breakfast, wine tasting options, and dinner recommendations. I celebrated a special birthday this past December and was surprised with a bottle of wine in...

I've visited Fern Grove Cottages two years in a row around New Years to celebrate my anniversary and it has been a blast both times. Within easy walking distance of town, the cottages provide a great base camp for exploring the area. They are always super helpful planning visits to and recommending wineries and places to eat and explore. The...

My friend and I were able to stay in a pet-friendly suite (with a dog) over the holiday weekend. Clean and cozy, a gas fireplace, walking distance to quaint downtown Guerneville, about 20 minutes from redwoods, about 20 minutes from Goat Rock on the coast, excellent service and helpful tips for exploring the plethora of wineries in the region.

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.

I am little torn as I write this review. We had a GREAT stay at Fern Grove Cottages. The rooms are perfect for families. We went there with 5 families of four and 4 of the families had 2 bedroom cottages and one had a one bedroom. FYI, the bedrooms are SMALL, there is no room for a pack and...

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
