The Raford Inn is a Healdsburg Bed & Breakfast with Panoramic Vineyard Views. The 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.
A short drive from The Raford Inn you will find notable natural wonders include the ancient trees at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in Guerneville, and the lower Russian River flowing twenty miles to the sea through the Great Pacific Coastal Redwood Forest. Explore the dramatic Sonoma Coast including old Russian Fort Ross State Historic Park, the picturesque artists colony of Jenner and the quaint fishing village of Bodega Bay.
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
