It's like staying at a cozy B&B in a beautiful forest. The owners are really nice people which shines through during your stay. The breakfasts are yummy... Fresh fruit, pastries, boiled eggs, juice all served in the cozy living room. Perfect place to stay with our dog. The patio had a gate so my dog had plenty of room to...

This is a great place to stay in the beauty of the redwoods. It is close to many beautiful places to sight-see, hike, go to the ocean or do wine-tasting. We will be back again and again to enjoy the hospitality and location of Fern Grove Cottages.

Depending on preferences and personally I like the laid back restful vacations as well as the glitz and glamour. This area is beautiful and close to the ocean. If seafood places are are what you like!

Fern Grove Cottages is our getaway place when we need a local escape. We've been several times now in all seasons - the pool and dahlia and vegetable gardens offer the respite one needs in the hot, hazy days of summer, and the lodge with its bright burning fire, puzzle table and other entertainment is the cozy place you are...

Fern Grove was a great place to stay. The service was wonderful and the grounds of the cottages were beautiful. The cottages were dated but clean. The bedrooms were small. Breakfast was delicious every morning and everyone was very helpful in advising on places to see and go to. We would definitely stay there again.

We went to Guerneville to wine taste. Stayed two nights at the Fern Grove. We had our dog with us. We were pretty disappointed with the town itself. So many homeless mental people. We did not feel safe walking around. There isn't much to the town. if you have a dog with you, you won't find anywhere to eat unless...

My husband and I stayed at Fern Grove for four nights and were so impressed by the hospitality of the owners and the cleanliness and coziness of the resort itself! Jennifer definately went above and beyond when it came to meeting (and exceeding) our needs. Breakfast was delicious and served in a cozy nook off the office. Bed was super...

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

“We had cabin 17 - King 1 bdrm/living room Spa. Perfect amount of room with a mini-fridge and microwave (we didn't want to cook at all so opted out of kitchenette option). This cabin was absolutely perfect for us and living room table was big enough to do a 500 & 1000 piece puzzle on!”
