The Raford Inn History

Built in 1880, this three-story estate manor house is an officially-designated historic landmark. The authentic Victorian-era plantation style architecture still remains, including the original Queen Anne accents. Hops pioneer Raford Peterson’s family lived here and worked the land for 100 years before it was sold, refurbished to modern codes and converted into an Inn.

The original 1,320 acre property was once mainly planted with hops. Now vineyards prevail and the remaining four acres are a protected sanctuary for a house that is not merely a place to shelter travelers, but is also a home where the spirit of congenial country hospitality lives on.

For more than 30 years, the Raford Inn has provided B&B guests a comfortably elegant stay in Sonoma County Russian River Valley wine country without the busy feel of downtown Healdsburg.

Come and enjoy the enclosed sunroom and wrap-around veranda. Gaze through the towering palm trees across the grape vines and step back into a time that has not quite yet gone by.
