Our 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.
Our Healdsburg area B&B is a great starting point to venture into the Sonoma Wine Country appellations of the Russian River Valley, Green Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Chalk Hill, and more. The eclectic shops of Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Guerneville, Forestville, and Santa Rosa invite your interest.
The Raford Inn owners, Dane Pitcher and Rita Wells, welcome you to a relaxing stay in the Healdsburg countryside.
It is hard to miss Dane's jovial smile in the evenings and Rita's special flare at breakfast.
In 2004, they realized a 13-year dream of becoming innkeepers, when they purchased The Raford Inn.
“Farther from the modern world than the eye can see, yet only fifteen minutes from everywhere, we of the Raford Inn invite you to experience a warm and memorable visit to a time and place that has not quite yet gone by.”
"We look forward to your visit!" - Dane and Rita
