The Raford Inn is located in the Russian River Wine Valley, of Sonoma County, just a half mile from the Russian River and a 15 minute drive along gorgeous vineyard country roads to the Healdsburg Square. Gently perched on a South facing slope above sweeping Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards, ringed by redwood forested mountains, near a small country crossroad, The Raford Inn is a welcoming beacon of hospitality. This 1880 Victorian plantation property is graced with luscious gardens, a working estate vineyard, and towering palm trees that are home to some of the region’s most exotic birds.
"We have been coming up to the Raford Inn for many years now. We've always had a fabulous time. The setting is gorgeous in the middle of the wine country. Dane and Rita are amazing hosts. We especially enjoy the happy hour where there's always lively conversations. The breakfasts are out of this world using many ingredients from their garden. It's located close to wineries with scenic views of the vineyards off the Veranda. One of our favorite yearly stops."
