Wonderful and Warm October Weekend !

Margaret and Mike were gracious hosts. We stayed there over our daughter's wedding weekend. She really helped smooth our nerves. The gardens and Redwood forest on the property are beautiful. Margaret and Mike have really worked to keep the "old Guerneville” charm alive. The rooms all remain true to the period during which they were built and are excellently cared for. They are a wealth of information if you want to use this as a home base for day trips in the area. Guerneville and Fern Grove are a hidden gem in Sonoma County !

A real gem - will be back!

A real gem - will be back! The staff were all super-helpful and the breakfasts to die for. Only a few minutes walk from the centre of Guerneville and beautiful drives to numerous wineries and the coast. The Russian River area is so much better than Napa; wine as good, if not better quality; far less pretentious; far friendlier. We will definitely base ourselves in the Russian River and stay at Fern Grove Cottages next time we want to visit the wine region.

Magical Oasis

We stayed a Sunday night. We hadn't been to Guerneville in decades. We chose the Fern Grove Cottages because we could bring our dog. After a meandering drive from the Bay Area (beautiful but tiring) we arrived at this magical oasis, on the edge of the main "strip" in Guerneville. Tall redwoods hugged the cabins, beautiful flowers and shrubs bloomed everywhere, obviously well tended. We checked in, went to our event, and happily returned, to spend the evening on our deck, simply amazed at the majesty of the redwoods, the changing sky, the serenity

Margaret is a wonderful hostess!

Our group of 6 had the most amazing time. We especially like the BBQ area. We shared it with another large group and had so much fun. The owners supply all the charcoal and utensils, and clean out the fire pit and BBQs every day. It is a great atmosphere for family as well as for a romantic getaway. And so central to everywhere. Margaret was also very helpful in pointing us to some amazing wineries!

Charming cottages in wine country redwoods

The cottages are modest but charming, the location & grounds are lovely - a gardened redwood idyll close to Russian River recreation and all that central Sonoma wine country offers. The buffet breakfasts are ample and the price is right. But best of all for wine country travelers and foodies is the friendly & knowledgeable proprietor, Margaret Kennett, who can pinpoint your likes and direct you to exactly perfect wineris and restaurants that meet your tastes and also surprises you.

Great place to stay in Guerneville

We have stayed at Fern Grove three different times. Every time, the hosts are friendly, helpful, and gracious. There was all new furniture in our cabin on our last visit. The saltwater pool is also a very nice plus. The continental breakfast is very good and the homemade scones delicious. This is a great place to stay for local events or as a base for exploring Sonoma County wine country

Great place to stay for Vineman!

We stayed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights for Vineman 70.3. We were happy with the room (1BR w/ Fireplace). It was cute and cozy. Ladies - you might want to bring shampoo, conditioner, and body wash as there was only bar soap and a bottle of combo shampoo/conditioner. There was also no iron so my clothes were a bit wrinkly but I could live. Breakfast was amazing...I am still thinking about it. The only negative was that breakfast didn't start until 8:30am, so if you are an early bird you have to wait. It was worth the wait though - the homemade granola was so good and the scones were hot right out of the oven. If you stay during either Vineman race, they will give you a breakfast bag the night before (bagel and pastries) but only if you are racing. The location was perfect for the race, which starts at Johnson's beach. I would say the walk was less than 1/2 mile away from race start. We will be staying there again next year!

Very Pleasant Setting

We spent four nights in Guerneville at the Fern Grove Cottages. The setting was very nice and we had a nice view from our deck. We had two rooms; a bedroom , living room plus a large bath room with Jacuzzi. The rooms were very comfortable and decorated with a cowboy theme complete with a saddle set up in the living room. The complimentary breakfast was minimal, but the bagels, fruit and yogurt were all we needed and were quite satisfactory. I would recommend the Fern Grove cottages and I would stay there again.

This was a great stay!

We enjoyed our stay immensely. We had a beautiful cottage with a lovely setting. Margaret and the innkeeper were both extremely helpful and informative of the area and the local wineries. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Great find!! too cute :)

This was a great little town in wine country. The place was super cute and cozy. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. We received a discount to many of the wineries in the Russian River valley which was a huge benefit! Would stay here again and recommend to friends.

English style B&B in beautiful California

We really liked our stay, the cottages are well equipped and spread in a nice location including even red woods. our little house comprised two bed rooms and a larger living room with fir place and kitchen. A balcony for sitting and eating outside was there as well, where we had our breakfast. The owners are kind and helped us a lot with direction etc. Our late arrival was no problem at all. The place is a good starting point to explore the coast, coastal redwoods and all the wineries.

Perfect - Perfect - Perfect!!!

We loved everything about our recent 2 night stay! My husband and I came up from Phoenix and stayed in a traditional studio room that was nestled in the woods yet close enough to walk to everything in town including several dinner choices and live must at Main Street which I highly recommend. The river was a short walk from the property where they rent canoes and kayaks. The property is right out of a fairy tale with beautiful wild flowers and tall redwoods surrounding the property. The main house was a perfect gathering spot where we had the best homemade breads and fruit with granola and yogurt for breakfast. After touring the wine county one day we brought a bottle of wine back with us to share and Margaret was so gracious to borrow us some wine glasses to make our stay there complete. This is a perfect location to get to the Armstrong forest for a nice hike and then hit one of the many roads surrounding to go out and do some wine tasting. Margaret showed us so many wine tasting options in the Russian River area that we will need to come back here every year for the rest of my lives (which we plan to do!) to explore them all!

Definitely the Kind of Place you go Back to!

The place was more than we could have hoped for! The gardens were beautiful, the location was perfect, the room was cozy and plenty roomy, and the breakfast was phenomenal: biscuits, tea, coffee, fruit, bagels, toast, cereal, and all sorts of jams. Everyone was friendly and polite, too! We'll definitely be going back here again!

A Great Stay

This was a very nice place to stay. Breakfast was provided each morning and was very good. Margaret, the proprietor, was exceedingly pleasant and so very helpful with information about the area, especially with respect to wineries in the Sonoma Valley. We'd definitely stay there again.

Nice and Sweet

Margaret and Annie always put forth extra effort to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. The warm cheese biscuits served for breakfast are a must! Also, the surroundings of tall redwoods and beautiful flower gardens are a comfort to the soul.

Relaxing and Cozy

This was our 2nd stay in 9 months. We came in January and enjoyed it so much, we decided to spend our anniversary here. Margaret has a passion for the wine country and directed us to several wineries that we really enjoyed. We would definitely stay here again. The room was small, but cozy. Nestled in the red woods, steps from the town of Guerneville.

Very Charming

I was very impressed with my stay at Fern Grove Cottages. The people were friendly and knowledgeable. Our self-standing cottage was clean, charming and very comfortable for two people. Our cottage had a TV, a small heater, a tiny shower, a queen size bed, and hangers and a place to hang your clothes. The cottage we were in included a wet bar which consisted of a sink and refrigerator. The grounds were lush with gardens full of flowers, fruit trees, vegetable gardens and surrounded by redwood trees. There is a common area equipped with two grills and a picnic table available for use. Free breakfast was included offering coffee, baked goods, yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, and juice. Places to eat, a grocery store and convenience stores were within walking distance. A boat dock was also nearby. I would highly recommend Fern Grove Cottages to friends and family.

We Keep Coming Back

We love Ferngrove Cottages. This was our third stay at Ferngrove. Margaret is a wonderful hostess that makes a bountiful continental breakfast which includes yogurt, homemade scones, sweet breads, and granola. The cottages are among the magnificent redwoods. Margaret and her staff are very knowledgable about the area and the wineries. She will even give you a passport for complimentary wine tastings. We will defintely be back.

A Gem in the Woods

Fern grove was a great place to stay. Margaret the owner was very accommodating, and friendly. The breakfast in the morning was great. The lemon curd , jams , scones and granola were all homemade. The rooms were very retro, clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again. The walk to town was short. The gardens on the property were beautiful. Pool was clean and warm.

Fabulous!

It was only a one-night stay, but the most charming, cozy comfortable B&B I've ever experienced. I would most definitely return.
